Part 1:The Postmodern Maze of Mormonism Vol.2

Join us as we finally dive back into the splintering world of the Mormon Empire and give an insightful look into the current affairs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are joined by Bradley Campbell from the Youtube Channel "God Loves Mormons" , who has spent an extensive amount of time in Utah doing outreach to the mormon community. The origins of Mormonism began in the early 1800's, when its leader Joseph Smith claimed to receive a private revelation: the true church of Jesus Christ needed to be restored because all other churches were in a state of apostasy. Since the founding of the LDS church, substantial changes have been made to their doctrine, but nothing compares to the post modern fragmentation that’s occurred the last twenty years. What are the reasons behind these shifts? The answers may surprise you.

Part 6: William Branham & The Road To Jonestown

Welcome to the last episode of our series on William Branham. At this point, it must be hard to separate fact from fiction, but that is precisely the point. You have been on a wild ride for the last few weeks. You have heard it all, from prohibition to shootouts, the fabricated stories of William Branham, and the wild-sexcapades of Roy Davis. Yet it all must climax somewhere the story of William Branham must come to an end. The end of William Branham began at the birth of the most infamous preacher man, the black-haired Raven, Jim Jones. Branham was a pragmatist, a man who saw the blossoming preacher, Jim Jones, as just another opportunity to get his "Message" throughout the earth. The two collided to create a symphony of madness. For Branham and his white-supremacy message, his soliloquy at work was a juxtaposition to the civil rights leader Jim Jones. How did the two get along? How did William Branham die? Did Jim Jones amalgamize any teachings from Branham? Tune in to this last episode of the series: William Branham and the Road to Jonestown, to find out.

Part 3: Congressmen William D. Upshaw & the Ku Klux Klan.

In part 3, we look at a 1920s congressman from Georgia by the name of William D. Upshaw & the unique impact he ended up having on the Branham Cult. William D. Upshaw was a United States Congressman and revivalist from Georgia who was closely affiliated with William Joseph Simmons during the early years of the 1915 Ku Klux Klan and later with Roy E. Davis as Davis rose to the rank of the Imperial Wizard of the Klan. Upshaw was known as the "driest of the dries" for his position against drinking alcohol, helped turn the State of Georgia into the first "dry state", and almost single-handedly led Simmons and the Klan to victory during the 1921 Congressional Hearings. Upshaw helped promote William Branham's revivals by posing as a wheelchair invalid at Roy Davis' request, advertised other revivalists in the Voice of Healing/Latter Rain revivals, and toured with the Branham campaigns until his death in 1952. How did the exactly KLU-KLUX-KLAN formulate & how much influence did they really have in U.S. politics at that time?

Part 2: William Branham, Roy E. Davis, & The formulation of "The Message".

In part 2, we continue in the mid 1920’s & look at the formulation of a unique relationship between William Branham & Roy E Davis. Roy Davis was an evangelist from Texas who ordained William Branham into the Pentecostal faith, mentored Branham in his church, and taught Branham to drink poison to gain new converts. Davis was also an official spokesperson for William Joseph Simmons in both the 1915 Ku Klux Klan and the Knights of the Flaming Sword white supremacy groups, and eventually an Imperial Wizard of the K.K.K. Davis fled to Jeffersonville, IN after a series of criminal activities ranging from bank robbery and swindling to bigamy and sexual crimes. Before those crimes were exposed and he was extradited on charges of Grand Theft, Davis planted the church that would become Branham's "Billie Branham Pentecostal Tabernacle" and eventually the "Branham Tabernacle" when Branham's stage persona transitioned to "Baptist". How exactly did famous historical events like the uncertainty of the great depression, the systematic racial tensions of the Jim Crow Era, & Branham’s relationship with Roy E Davis helped formulate his underlying worldview & the Cult known as “The Message” Tune in to find out!

In "Seeking Ascension, Finding Jesus" Ex-New Ager, Theresa Gentry, shares her dramatic journey from being an eclectic spiritual practitioner to becoming a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Her story is full of twists, turns, and supernatural encounters along the way. Theresa shares an intimate window into her traumatic past. Her coping mechanisms and addictions led to debilitating health problems which became a gateway into the New Age where she desperately searched for the answers to heal and become truly whole. Throughout over a decade of seeking, Theresa collected many spiritual titles including Ceremonial Artist, Altered Consciousness Specialist, Multi-Dimensional Priestess, Medicine Woman, Psychic, Healer and Teacher in a continued attempt to find spiritual wholeness and true healing. Her journey led her on spiritual pilgrimages all over the world from Burning Man, conscious festivals, and psychedelic ceremonies, to gathering with thousands of other seekers at Chichen Itza, the infamous Mayan Pyramid, on December 21st, 2012 with a hope and a prayer to help humanity ascend into “5D consciousness”. Despite her accumulated esoteric knowledge and spiritual insight, there was no end in sight to attaining the true peace and wholeness she longed for all her life—until she had a dramatic encounter with Jesus that changed everything. Theresa’s story will challenge Christians and New Agers alike as “Seeking Ascension, Finding Jesus” tells a powerful story about a desperate search to find wholeness, healing, and forgiveness through the New Age—and of the peace, she finally found in Jesus.

Word of Faith & New Thought: A Modern Assessment, Pt. 2

Continuing last weeks discussion on the relationship between New Thought cults and the Word of Faith movement, we are joined by former New Thought proponent Melissa Doughtery and ex New Ager Steven Bancarz to examine positive confessionalism. This “name it and claim it” doctrine originated in the late 1800s with the teaching known as the Law of Attraction, first coined by Luciferian Helena Blavatsky, and became a staple teaching in New Thought and New Age philosophy. Statements such as “you possess what you confess” (Kenyon) and “you can have what you say” (Hagin) are classic lines by prominent Word of Faith fathers, though these principles originate from the metaphysical schools of the late 19th century. Positive confessionalism has worked its way into some very influential modern-day charismatic churches who have began to embrace the likes of Copeland and Hinn within their circles, refurbishing this doctrine under the new titles “declaration” and “decree”. Join us as we discuss the pervasiveness, error, and danger of this staple WOF doctrine and its relationship to the New Thought cults of past and present.

What’s talked about less often is its historical ties to the metaphysical cults of the late 1800s, and its doctrinal parallels to New Thought and New Age spirituality. Word of Faith grandfather E. W. Kenyon (1867-1948) was influenced by New Thought teachers such as Phineas Quimby and Mary Baker Eddy, thanks to his extensive metaphysical library and the influence of New Thought at his college of study. These teachings later become adopted and intensified by the father of the modern WOF movement Kenneth E. Hagin, who inspired the likes of Copeland, Roberts, and Hinn. In this series, we are joined by former New Thought proponent Melissa Doughtery and former New Ager Steve Bancarz to document these historical ties and analyze the striking similarities between WOF teachings and the metaphysical cults of past and present.

Part 3: How To Talk To Mormon Missionaries

In the third & final part of our “How to Talk to Mormon Missionaries” series we are joined once again by former Mormon missionary Dan Tate and dive into the meat and potatoes of LDS Theology derived from “Lesson Two: Plan of Salvation” from the “Preach My Gospel” handbook. Lesson One was the bridge used by the LDS to show how they are different from Christianity; and how through the Great Apostasy the truth of the gospel was lost. Lesson 2 aims to help the Investigator walk the bridge through the Ordinances of the gospel. So what is the Plan of Salvation now? How are you saved according to LDS theology? Better yet, What are the ordinances that Joseph Smith restored? If you’ve ever wondered what to expect if you ever sit down with a pair of missionaries, our guest Dan Tate gives quite the unique perspective as someone who once believed and taught this message to others for 2 years while on his mission in Florida.

Part 2: Cross Examining Jeffrey Epstein & The Finders

We begin Part 2 of our discussion of Jeffrey Epstein by discussing a candid video of an ABC news anchor admitting that she was directed to bury and ignore Epstein stories back to 2016. We then discuss the importance of independent testimony to verify a claim and how to verify that independent testimony is actually independent, and we then do a re-cap of the independent data and independent testimony that links Epstein to the intelligence communities. We discuss Epstein's "Little Black Book" a handwritten record important people he knew and their personal contact methods. We discuss possible reasons why an individual would want to keep such a contact book and touch on some of the names in this book: Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey. Epstein's contact book connects Epstein to the NXIVM (nex-eee-um) cult. NXIVM is publicly a multi-level marketing company but the US Government states that NXIVM is a cult. NXIVM is connected to several breakaway Mormon communities in northern Mexico by procuring girls from these Mormon communities to serve in NXIVM's compounds on the north-eastern seaboard. We paint a picture of a child-trafficking route that existed in the Finders' time from the north-eastern seaboard down through Mexico and the continuation of this child-trafficking route under Epstein's supervision into the modern day. We discuss the profit motive of and the profitability of the trafficking routes. We conclude by discussing occult religious angles to Epstein's activities; the temple on his island, his obsession with improving the human genome by siring a new generation of supermen using himself as a template and the tenets of theistic Satanism and how those same tenets may apply to Epstein's activities and objectives. Attorney Andrew Morrow returns as our guest.

Discerning Kanye West, Conspiracies, & Joel Osteen

Is Kanye West a Masonic Illuminati puppet pretending to be a Christian in hopes of leading the church into a one-world religion under the anti-Christ? Are we witnessing the beginning of a pseudo-Christian cult produced by the world elite for the purpose of leading the church into apostasy? According to some corners of the body of Christ, and even according to some ministries, the answer to these questions is a resounding yes. Kanye is definitely a secret-society member working for Satan’s Kingdom, hiding his true agenda in plain site through symbolism. But are these charges rooted in objective, factual evidence that should hold up in God’s courtroom? And are those who bring these charges to the public abiding by God’s standard of due-process, fair trial, and righteous judgement from a presumption of innocence? Are we giving an answer before we hear (Pro. 18:13), and coming to a conclusion prior to cross-examination (Pro. 18:17)? In this episode, guest Steven Bancarz joins us to take a deeper look into the good, the bad, and the Cultish about Kanye West’s conversion. We will examine the Bibles standard of discernment, the Bibles standard of righteous judgement and due process, how we should interact with phenomena like this as a church, while also diving deep to cross-examine some of the charges that are being launched against him.

Part 2: Tom Delonge & The UFO Phenomena

In episode 2 we pick up where we left off, after Tom's original advisers were exposed in the Wikileaks dump of 2016. This led to Tom forming a second group of advisers in 2017, who now comprise the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences. We begin by examining the members of TTSA and exploring the purpose of this organization. We then continue considering point #2 from Colin's article (https://thecultishshow.com/blog/engaging-et), by discussing Mr. Luis Elizondo, the intelligence officer who was central to the New York Times' ground breaking piece in 2017. We also consider the testimony of Top Gun pilot Commander David Fravor, who was also featured in that article and recently appeared on the Joe Rogan Podcast. Clearly, the government is being more open about this subject, and the media is taking it much more seriously than in the past. Finally, we end by considering the subject from a Christian worldview perspective. While some UFOs may indeed be misidentified natural phenomenon, or some secret government tests, many objects that are credibly observed do not fit neatly into these categories. What exactly is a Christian to make of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, which demonstrates anomalous characteristics and intelligent control? Tune in to the discussion to find out.

Pastor Samul gives us some of his background and testimony, and explains why he has continued to follow this subject. We discuss the modern obsession with UFOs in relation to everything from the New Age, Mormonism, Transhumanism, and the theory of Evolution. As we will see, the UFO is the apotheosis of modern religious sentiments We then delve into the background of Tom Delonge in the early formation of his company "To the Stars." We quickly dive into the rabbit hole of clandestine government contacts and our military's interaction with the UFO phenomenon, as related to Tom by his original advisers from within the government. According to them the phenomenon is not only real, but has often appeared threatening to our military establishment. We end with Tom's original advisers breaking off contact with him, as their identities were exposed in the 2016 wikileak dump of DNC emails. This would lead to Tom organizing a second group of government advisers who are now publicly associated with him through the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, which we will explore further in episode 2.

Just a few weeks ago, Lindsay created much controversy with the announcement that she was expelled from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry for publicly speaking out against the school. Why did this happen? What caused her to doubt Bethel’s cause and begin to think differently than she had a few months prior? In this three-part series, we speak in depth with Lindsay Davis about her time at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry and discover what makes this worldwide movement so alluring. We also discuss some very concerning psychological and sociological cultish behaviors which line up with descriptions given by experts like Steven Hassan and Rick Allen Ross, who have extensively researched recent cultish movements in the United States. Most importantly, we discuss the theological cultish behaviors that fall under Walter Martin’s classic definition: “ a group of people gathered around a specific person or person’s misinterpretation of the Bible. “ Additionally, we explore the physical and supernatural manifestations happening at Bethel, which brings up the question: are these experiences movements of God, psychosomatic episodes, or something else? Could it be possible to experience healing and the supernatural apart from God? There is no doubt that Bethel Church has worldwide influence, and because of this, it is imperative to have this conversation. We invite you, regardless of where you stand on this issue, to be part of this conversation and listen to Lindsay’s story with an open mind.

Part 1 : The Postmodern Maze Of Mormonism

In these long awaited episodes, we finally dive into the splintering world of the Mormon Empire and give our state of the union address to the current affairs happening in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Co-hosts Jeff Durbin and Jeremiah Roberts are joined by Alexandar Larson, who spent nearly thirty years growing up within the state of Utah. There, he witnessed first-hand the underbelly of undue Mormon influence on the culture of Utah. The origins of Mormonism began in the early 1800's, when its leader Joseph Smith claimed to receive a private revelation: the true church of Jesus Christ needed to be restored because all other churches were in a state of apostasy. Since the founding of the LDS church, substantial changes have been made to their doctrine, but nothing compares to the post modern fragmentation that’s occurred the last twenty years. Why are the reasons behind these shifts? The answers may surprise you.

Cultish: Escaping Scientology Part 1

Join us for the 4th premiere episode of the much-anticipated new program from the creators at Apologia Studios: Escaping Scientology. The cult of Scientology has received much attention after the numerous popular documentaries on the group; including Leah Remini’s series “Scientology and the Aftermath”. The science-fiction writer, L. Ron Hubbard, may have never imagined the results, scope, and reach of the cult that he created in the 20th-century. Many have not truly discovered the spiritual, social, and psychological damage and manipulation of this very dangerous non-Christian cult. What does a Scientologist believe? What is it like to live like a Scientologist? Is this a harmless “religion” or something much more dangerous? Are the stories true of the physical danger that someone can be in for attempting to escape from Scientology? Listen-in as Jeremiah Roberts and Pastor Jeff Durbin speak with Andrea Schwartz. Andrea and her husband were members of the Cult of Scientology. They worked as faithful Scientologists at recruiting new members and were involved in some very deceptive schemes of this group.
