'Interactive Team-Building Seminar' Called Cutting-Edge Way of Learning' http://www.baptistpress.com/bpnews.asp?ID=14603

For those unacquainted with the term 'Diaprax', it is simply another word for the Hegelian Dialectic or consensus process -- a deceitful procedure designed to bring about change through conflict and compromise that was conceived in the late 1700's by transformational Marxist, Georg Wilhelm Fredric Hegel who sought, as occult-led globalists do to this day, ‘unity in diversity' – a term many of us became familiar with under the Clinton Administration. Diaprax, a word coined by author and teacher Dean Gotcher, essentially brings together people of diverse and often opposing backgrounds, worldviews and belief systems in hopes they will forfeit their own values, traditions and absolutes for the emotional rewards of group acceptance.

The goal of Diaprax in the church is to rid the flock of its pesky and divisive hang-ups and habits that impede unity and change – personal convictions and restrained behaviors that are based on Biblical truth rather than political correctness, pragmatism and personal taste. Diaprax is a truth-silencing technique that covertly promotes humanist ideals and a reciprocating brotherly love known in the Greek as 'phileo' through imagery (arts/media) and conversation (opinion/dialog) at the expense of the more Godly, obedient, self-sacrificing, truthful and unworldly 'love-your-enemy' kind of love called 'agape' – the kind of love that drove the Apostle Paul to speak the bitter truth about sinful man from the chains of a dark and lonely prison; the kind of love that caused Stephen to cry out: "lay not this sin to their charge" as the angry crowd stoned him to death for his cutting words of conviction; and what moved the Lord Jesus Himself to say as He hung on a cross for the sins of the world: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."

Those who GO along to GET along, the cowardly essence of Diaprax, are rewarded with the 'phileo' love of tolerance and flattery. Those who courageously challenge the consensus are shamed, ridiculed or rejected for their 'hateful' attitude', 'mean-spiritedness' and 'ungodly' disruption of the group's 'purpose-driven' unity.

Words you WON’T see in the article are God, Jesus Christ, cross, sin, rebellion, repentance, confession, forgiveness, grace, mercy, wisdom, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, the Holy Spirit, edification, sanctification, glorification or even salvation. Why? -- Because this 'model of things to come for teaching in our churches' is not about the Gospel of Christ. It is about avoiding it at all costs.

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." – 2nd Timothy 4:3-4

I remember when we first learned about the term Diaprax - it was shortly after we got asked to leave our former church several years ago for being "divisive", not following the team of facilitators with the purposeless driven movement and confronting our pastor about sin within the church. It's scary to learn that there is actually a step by step system within the church set up to eliminate anyone who dare speaks up for the Truth.

Interesting article - thanks for posting it.

Your 'divisive' words must have been something along the lines of God's word, eh? :) That will indeed cut like a sword those living and teaching in rebellion. The church is the first place we are called to rebuke false doctrine. How dare you use God's word and preach an absolute truth about sin.

You did right in God's eye, and offended their false god.

Keep them in your prayers sister and what a pleasure to hear from you. God bless you and your family!

I know of others who have been called 'wolves' and driven out, because they put the Bible ahead of warren's purposeless drivel lies! And yes, rw does have a plan that can be used to drive the Bereans out...the Great Falling Anyway, is greater than I imagined, it boggles my mind at how readily so many 'pew warmers' happily follow 'hirelings' over the cliff.
Home churches and a few regular churches are holding the line, but the majority are sliding down a greased slope to Hell.
There is going to be an abomination at the crystal cathedral next month, and some of the people attending AND the churches, groups and Christian organizations represented is horrifying!
It's a 'rethinking Christianity' seminar and conference. That is merely code for throwing G*D's inerrant Word out and everyone be happy, happy and dance in the meadows with the butterflies and little fluffy animals! :spit:
I'll send you the link, or the article.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!
