The church growth movement is mind control and magic cloaked as Christianity. Its purpose is to transform Christians and churches from serving God to serving Satan. The purpose of the church growth movement is to bring the entire church community under demonic control.
The church growth movement transforms the churches from within. Its agents (leaders, change agents and facilitators), who are Satan’s agents, have already transformed themselves “into the apostles of Christ” and “ministers of righteousness” (2Cor 11:13-15).
Once within church walls, these change agents will establish an environment and conditions favorable to demons and, as a result, demonic influence over the membership will be maximized. Demonic influence over the church membership will be maximized when change agents have succeeded in manipulating the membership into a collective group mind.
A collective group mind is created when the members of the group set aside their differences and agree to and focus on a common man-made purpose, mission or vision. Church change agents often exhort their membership to unify and to catch their vision.
In order to maximize demonic influence over the church membership, change agents divide the membership into small groups and teams. Each team and small group is led and controlled by a change agent who keeps the group and team members, through manipulative dialogue, unified in purpose. Thus, each group and team will have formed their own collective group mind.
Many Christians recognize these change agent or facilitator-led small groups to be dialectical sessions. Most, however, don’t recognize that the true purpose of the group dialectic process is to invoke demons and to strengthen, sustain and align demonic influence over the participating group members. Change agents desiring to create and sustain a collective group mind, won’t say, and in most cases, don’t know, that a collective group mind summons a demon which will control the minds of those participating in the small group.
The dialectic process in the church, directed or “facilitated” by Satan’s agents (change agents), is a manipulative process whereby Christians will be transformed from obeying God to obeying Satan through the wiles of his covert agents: the group facilitator and the group demon.
Change agents want to remove from the environment or “synthesize” all “divisive” elements that hinder the creation of a collective group mind. True Christians unwilling to compromise Christ for group consensus must be removed from this environment because the presence of the Holy Spirit hinders both the formation of a group mind and the resulting demonic influence over the group.
When two or more people come together for a man-made purpose that contradicts God’s Word, a demon is invoked. When change agents get church members unified in agreement with a common purpose opposed to the Word of God, a demon is invoked. (All groups in a Christian church filled with true Christians are controlled by the Holy Spirit.)
The small group change agent is an alchemist and a magician. The small group is an alchemical laboratory and a magic circle. The magician, by his manipulative facilitation skills, creates the conditions whereby the members of his magic circle will come under the influence of the invoked demon.
In change agent-led small groups, a demon is invoked, strengthened and sustained by the group/team member’s interaction; it is able to further influence and direct the minds and behavior of the group members. The group demon is able to align the group members’ thinking and behavior in accord with the original group/team purpose and vision as cast by the change agent.
Group member interaction (also known as group dynamics) in churches infiltrated by the church growth movement is often referred to by church growth change agents as “synergy” or “synergy of energy.” The meaning or definition of group synergy is that the “group mind,” taken as an entity, is something different and greater than the sum of the minds of the individual group members. Its formation is often depicted by the equation, 2+2=5. What church growth change agents don’t explain is where the extra “one” in this equation comes from. It comes from the influence of the group demon which has been invoked. This group/team demon is called an “egregore.”
The term “egregore” derives from the Greek word “egeiro” which means “to be awake, to watch” and the Hebrew word “ (Hebrew letters, ‘ayin’, ‘yod’, ‘reish’)…pronounced IR or ER…n. m. waking, or wakeful one, i.e. angel.” 68.
Egregores have a purpose. Egregores can be invoked either intentionally or unintentionally. All group structures have their own egregores and the egregore is invoked by group members as they join the group and agree with its purpose or “catch its vision.” Each individual in the group receives the influence of the egregore. As individuals add to the group and agree with the group purpose, the egregore is strengthened. The strength of the egregore grows or is recharged as the group renews a unity of emotion or focus. Egregores are capable of influencing each group member in a manner that they would be incapable of being influenced apart from the group. Egregores can interact; they can have dominion over each other, and they can move across different languages and become adaptable across cultures.
“An egregor is an angel, sometimes called watcher; in Hebrew the word is ir, and the concept appears in The Book of Enoch….” 69.
“The Kabbalah names 72…national angelic regents, which the Hebrews call Elohim; the metaphysical technical term Egregors is also used for them. Derived from the Greek word egreoros, it means ‘watcher’ or ‘guardian.’” 70.
According to the Kabbalist, Eliphaz Levi, “The egregors are the Anakim of the Bible or, rather, according to the book of Enoch, they are the patriarchs. They are the fabled Titans and are found in all religious traditions.” 71.
The Anakim and Titans are the fallen angels or Nephilim who mated with human women in Genesis 6: “Sumerian texts repeatedly state that the Anunnaki came to Earth… They are spoken of in the Bible as the ‘Anakim’ and ‘Anak’ or ‘Nefilim’ (nephilum). ‘Nefilim’ (nephilum) in Hebrew means ‘giants’ or ‘those who have fallen’.” 72. (Mount Hermon/Sion)
The following statements from various sources describe the influence of egregores or demons on a collective group mind, the creation of which is the goal of church growth change agents.
“An egregore has the characteristic of having an effectiveness greater than the mere sum of its individual members. It continuously interacts with its members, influencing them and being influenced by them. The interaction works positively by stimulating and assisting its members but only as long as they behave and act in line with its original aim. It will stimulate both individually and collectively all those faculties in the group which will permit the realization of the objectives of its original program. If this process is continued a long time the egregore will take on a kind of life of its own…” 73.
“…each individual who is involved in a group receives the influences of the egregores…An egregore actually grows by drawing support from the members which constitute it who, in turn, through their repeated actions vivify it, somehow helping it to maintain its power.” 74.
“…an egregore is created – whether intentionally or otherwise – by people…an egregore is shared by more than one person, and its power increases as it is invoked…Modern group structures…have their own egregores…A magickal group ritual repeated many times [feeds into an egregore].” 75. Note that church growth small groups, in an effort to create a unified group mind, meet repeatedly.
“The egregor is always an invisible and spiritual being…When several people on the earth unite around a common idea, they give birth to an egregora… this being is then going to become independent and have its own life which will be capable of influencing human beings and history. This is a terrifying secret which was carefully hidden inside the ancient mysteries. They called it: “The art of creating Gods.” 76.
“The egregore is a group spirit that serves to remind the initiate of his or her goals [or purposes]…” 77.
“As sentient beings created by a collaborative choice, egregores can be considered ‘team spirit’, in a very literal sense.” 78.
“It [an egregore] may best be defined as a ‘collective group mind,’ in both its conscious and sub-conscious aspects, which is formed by the united thinking and feeling of a number of like-minded people…and as the numbers [of people] admitted increase, so the power and range of the Egregore increases, and a peculiar reciprocal action takes place. Each member of the group pours energy into the collective thought-form but, equally, into each member there also passes the influence of the group as a whole.” 79.
An occult website explains how a “mage” invokes an egregore, and not unlike church growth change agents, envisions its pre-defined purpose: “The mage is striving to better align the egregore more fully with its own inherent benevolent Purpose, whatever the mage who initially created it envisioned its Purpose to be.” 80. Notice in referring to the egregore’s purpose, the word “purpose,” which has occult meaning, is placed in capitals. This example refers to an egregore that has been intentionally invoked.
“Konstantinos, in his book Summoning Spirits… warns his readers that, in order to evoke entities from the Necronomicon, they will probably have to create them themselves, as they would any egregore (An egregore is a thought-form created by the magician by means of his/her will and visualization).” 81.
The Necronomicon is a “Book of Dead Names” about the ancient demi-gods of “Atlantis,” that is, the offspring of fallen angels who were drowned in the Great Deluge.
“For as Abdul writes of The Necronomicon ‘civilizations were destroyed because of the knowledge contained in this book.’ This is the deed that must be avenged, the memory of which slumbers in the blood of their human offspring – just as they slumber beneath the Earth, waiting for the day that the stars will be right again, and their descendants will perform the rites which will bring them up from the depths to reclaim their kingdom, and the Age of the Gods will begin anew: The New Atlantis, the New Jerusalem, the New World Order.” 82. (Atlantis; “Atlantis Rising”)
These offspring of the fallen angels can be invoked by a magician’s will through visualization, i.e., the church growth change agent’s “vision casting.”
“But it certainly demonstrates the power of egregores, and why magickal societies were so hush-hush about them in the early 1900’s.” 83.
The church growth movement and its leadership are also “hush-hush” about these demons and the fact that they are clandestinely being summoned by the small groups they lead to “consensus.”
Kurt Lewin and the National Training Labs
Facilitator-led small groups are the basis of the church growth movement and church transformation. Facilitator-led small groups, having their origin in the occult, have been refined by decades of social laboratory experimentation. Some of these labs were the National Training Labs started by Kurt Lewin. According to the National Training Labs website, “In 1946, while serving as director of MIT’s new Research Center for GroupDynamics, a group he helped found, Lewin was contacted by the American Jewish Congress Committee on Community Interrelations and the Connecticut Interracial Commission to assist in the training of leaders who would deal with intergroup tensions in their home communities.” 84.
Kurt Lewin taught that “It is easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately.” Lewin is known for a 3 stage change or brainwashing method he developed in which group members were first “unfrozen” from their existing mindset, then, with their defenses down, moved or transitioned in a second stage and then “refrozen” into a new mindset. This process would repeat until the pre-determined mindset was reached.
Kurt Lewin became the director of the Tavistock Institute in 1932. According to Tavistock: The Best Kept Secret in America, “One of the key institutions established for this purpose [brainwashing] in the United States was the National Training Laboratories (NTL). Founded in 1947 by members of the Tavistock network in the United States and located originally on an estate in Bethel, Maine, NTL had as its explicit purpose the brainwashing of leaders of the government, educational institutions, and corporate bureaucracies in the Tavistock method, and then using these ‘leaders’ to either themselves run Tavistock group sessions in their organizations or to hire other similarly trained group leaders to do the job. The ‘nuts and bolts’ of the NTL operation revolves around the particular form of Tavistock degenerate psychology known as ‘group dynamics,’ developed by German Tavistock operative Kurt Lewin, who emigrated to the United States in the 1930s and whose students founded NTL.
In a Lewinite brainwashing group, a number of individuals from varying backgrounds and personalities, are manipulated by a ‘group leader’ to form a ‘consensus’ of opinion, achieving a new ‘group identity.’ The key to the process is the creation of a controlled environment, in which stress is introduced (sometimes called dissonance) to crack an individual’s belief structure. Using the peer pressure of other group members, the individual is ‘cracked,’ and a new personality emerges with new values. The degrading experience causes the person to deny that any change has taken place. In that way, an individual is brainwashed without the victim knowing what has taken place.” 85. Several millions of Americans have been through NTL brainwashing programs.
“One of the groups that went through the NTL mill in the 1950s was the leadership of the National Education Association, the largest organization of teachers in the United States. Thus, the NEA’s outlook has been ‘shaped’ by Tavistock, through the NTL. In 1964, the NTL Institute became a direct part of the NEA, with the NTL setting up ‘group sessions’ for all its affiliates. With funding from the Department of Education, the NTL Institute drafted the programs for the training of the nation’s primary and secondary schoolteachers, and has a hand as well in developing the content of educational ‘reforms,’ including OBE [outcome-based education].” 86.
Transformation to a Cell Group Structure
Change agents want to transform the traditional churches into a network of facilitator-led small groups (cell churches). In this new paradigm, the cell groups will be structured into a networking hierarchy not unlike a multi-level marketing structure. In this structure, all church members will be closely monitored, manipulated and databased by a top-down control. In the New Age book, The Aquarian Conspiracy, these networks were called SPIN’s or Segmented Polycentric Integrated Networks.
Five hundred traditionally minded Christians in a traditional church structure can’t be controlled. Five hundred Christians can be controlled and manipulated if they are divided into fifty small groups with each group under the control of a group leader transformed through leadership training. This small group leader can then “reproduce himself” as other group members realize their felt needs and find common ground and become transformed and form their own small groups.
It may also be important to note that the cell network structure is a military structure. It is similar to a militia structure and it is a structure that can easily infiltrate and subvert traditional government hierarchies as it has subverted traditional churches.
Transformation of Church Function
The goal of church change agents is to also transform the church into service within Drucker’s 3–legged stool. These change agents aspire to change the church’s traditional function. They intend for the churches to partner with the business and government sectors of the envisioned Communitarian society.
Rick Warren and other church growth change agents are leading the churches to take their proper place within this world government by enticing the churches with the gospel of good works or the social gospel. Warren has been able to bring churches and their members into this system by casting his vision for world peace. Warren calls this vision his PEACE Plan. The PEACE plan calls for humanitarian works like the curing of diseases and assisting the poor. Many church members may not realize, however, that this PEACE plan is similar to the UN development goals. Christians who believe they will be serving Jesus Christ when they catch this PEACE vision don’t realize they will be working for Satan’s goals. Ultimately, globalists don’t care about world sickness or poverty. The PEACE plan is just an instrument to bring the churches into the Communitarian system (business-government-social sector partnership) where “Christians” will be relegated to social work.
There is a Lutheran church in my neighborhood. The Lutheran denomination is a UN-NGO. This particular Lutheran church has a computer lab available to the public. They have a nurse’s station where vaccinations could be given. When I walked through their halls I noticed “community development offices” and the sign on one door read “cluster network office.” Perhaps one day they will be distributing free cheese to help meet the needs of the community. This is the church of the future. It’s basically a welfare distribution center.
According to the Leadership Network, “The Church of the 21st Century is reforming itself into a multi-faceted service operation.” 87. Regarding the church, Peter Drucker stated, “The community … needs a community center… I’m not talking religion now, I’m talking society. There is no other institution on the American community that could be the center.” 88.
Rick Warren told TIME Magazine: “Well, as I said, I could take you to villages that don’t have a clinic… But they’ve got a church. In fact, in many countries the only infrastructure that is there is religion… What if in this 21st century we were able to network these churches providing the…manpower in local congregations. Let’s just take my religion by itself. Christianity… The church is bigger than any government in the world. Then you add in Muslims, you add in Hindus, you add in all the different religions, and you use those houses of worship as distribution centers, not just for spiritual care but for health care. What could be done? Government has a role and business has a role and churches, house of worship have a role. I think it’s time to go to the moon, and I invite you to go with us.” 89.
