Here is a good essay written by a friend, at My Word Like Fire. It shows in devastating manner the ease with which satan goes after the children. We know that Jesus is a victorious King, and that no plan or scheme of satan will ultimately prosper against those who love Jesus...but it's still difficult to see the kids being chewed up like prey by a bloody and evil enemy.
My question is, to what lengths do you go to protect your children from the schemes of satan? Are you diligent in doing devotionals with them? Reading the Bible to them, and with them? Sacrificially making sure they attend a good Bible-based church for Sunday School or Wednesday night lessons? Do they see your marriage as a metaphor for the sacrifice of Jesus for His bride and submission to Him?
Here is the essay “Activating” the kids at Bethel Redding. Please read.
Bethel Redding leaders continue to present an unbalanced and unhealthy preoccupation with signs and wonders–or, as I have come to call it, a bells-and-whistles theology. It should be no surprise that this is also present in Bethel Redding’s children’s ministry.
Here is just one more example of the blasphemy coming out of Bethel Redding as exposed from My Word Like
Bethel Redding Children's Pastor says Jesus asked him for forgiveness
He said to His disciples, "It is inevitable that stumbling blocks come, but woe to him through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. (Luke 17:1-2)
And in case you are thinking that Bethel Redding is just a faraway church on the other side of the country (or world) in California having nothing to do with you, Bethel Redding with pastor Bill Johnson has spawned both the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry where you, too, can learn to be a prophet; and Bethel Redding Music, which is exported all over the world. You might know Bethel Redding's song One Thing Remains, for example. "Your love never fails, never gives up, it never runs out on me"... among hundreds of other songs infiltrating all churches everywhere. It is written and sung by the group Jesus Culture, formed at Bethel Redding.
See? Satan never gives up, never runs out on you...
