Mysticism Exposed

Many truths of Scripture are being distorted by a philosophy that places experience and emotions above the inerrant Word of God.  This philosophy is called mysticism.  Because mystics rely on subjective, private, spiritual experiences for guidance and wisdom, they diminish the authority of Scripture.  Visions and spiritual encounters become more important than the truths found in God's Word.  Unfortunately, this philosophy is having a profound impact on the Lord's church.  Here are some excellent resources to counter this pernicious philosophy.

Ben Alexander: Exposing Satan’s Power is a Christian ministry dedicated to exposing the powers of Satan through the truth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
