prominently on their Cultlink homepage is the advertisement for the Alnor’s new
video, The Great Apostacy: The Lost Sign, with the Pope, Kenneth Copeland, Paul
and Jan Crouch, Benny Hinn, Oral and Richard Roberts and Kenneth Hagin
plastered on the cover. It promises to document religious deception in the
church from the early 1900s until today with actual footage—100 film clips—of
preachers “in the very act of deception”—“the lying signs and wonders in the
church that are preparing people to receive the antichrist.”
Prasch of Moriel Ministries comments:
I appreciate the tremendous
work by Bill and Jackie Alnor in producing "The Great Apostasy." The
speed at which the deception Jesus said would come in the Last Days prior to
His return has arrived and can be almost frightening. More frightening however
is the willingness of so many once staunch evangelicals to compromise with it.
I praise the Lord for this video. If this does convince someone that things
have gone terribly wrong, nothing I know of, short of the return of Jesus
Himself, will bring these abominations in His house into judgment. J.

Michael Penfold adds:
Without doubt the most shocking
video exposing the charismatic movement ever produced. Starting at Azusa Street

documentary. Hear and see the most amazing teachings and practices ever
captured on film. 90 minutes.

Alnor writes HOLY
LAUGHTER--IS IT BIBLICAL?
If you haven't seen the latest
"wave of the charismatic spirit" that is rolling in all over then you
probably can't get the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) in your area. Here's
The man is
"evangelist" Rodney Howard-Browne (RHB), a South African
"missionary" to the United States who claims to be bringing in the
latest "wave of the Holy Spirit," yet as one radio minister has said,
"it is the greatest indignity to God yet." He has been holding
"revivals" in the states since 1987 though he's just recently come to
the forefront through the vehicle of TBN which has been televising the
theatrics. The 7,000 who daily attended his recent crusade in St. Louis were
greeted as they walked in by a large sign that read: "THIS MEETING IS NOT
FOR PHARISEES, SADUCEES, AND WOULDN'T SEES." This is how RHB poisons the
well to prevent any dissenters from resisting.
TBN founders Paul and Jan
Crouch have accepted RHB's explanation for the phenomenon as a move of God
bringing people to experience the "JOY" of the Lord. The proof text
is Romans 14:17: "For the kingdom of God is...righteousness and peace and
JOY in the Holy Spirit." In the May 1994 issue of TBN's newsletter they
state, "Laughter is a seemingly new demonstration of the Presence and
Power of the Holy Spirit...People are literally over-powered with laughter in
the Spirit at his (RHB) meetings."
Reports have come in that the
phenomenon is splitting churches apart. Pastors who make a stand against it are
losing their people to churches that accept it as a "move of God." At
a recent Calvary Chapel Pastors Leadership meeting, Chuck Smith warned the
other pastors to be aware of the strange fire and to take a stand against it
coming into Calvary Chapels.

"BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO
In November,1886, Christian
theologians from around the world gathered together in Chicago for the
Prophetic Studies of the International Prophetic Conference, to exchange ideas
about the long-neglected subject of eschatology. World-renowned Bible teacher
D. L. Moody sent in his contribution, being unable to attend personally. The
speeches were gathered in a one-volume book. The preface reads: The conference
gave no opportunity for modern prophets to ventilate their calculations or
speculations. It was rather an occasion for students of prophecy to present the
weighty matters found in the written word concerning "last times" and
"last things." The brethren who were appointed to bring to the
conference the results of prayerful and careful Bible study are neither idle
star-gazers, erratic time-setters, nor theological adventurers.
These men understood the
importance of correctly handling the word of truth with reverence, "'. . .
for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy'" (Revelation 19:10).
Without prophecy, we would have no Bible. If the devil could discredit Bible
prophecy, he could eliminate Christianity.
With that much said, I can
recommend most works of other prophecy teachers like John Walvoord*, David
Lewis, David Breese*, Chuck Smith, and others.

Jackie is somebody who has hung around for
a long time on supposedly anti-New Age work.
She married a reporter for ETERNITY Magazine* which had a vested
interest (they were pro Jeremy Rifkin, sympathetic to New Age Movement) in
silencing legitimate anti-New Age work.
Evangelical Ministries to New Religions hosted some disinformation
conferences. In 1983 they tried to set
me up in southern California. It backfired
on them. In March 1985 they held a
conference at the Denver Seminary. We
found out that security guards had been hired just in case I showed up. It was supposedly an anti-New Age
seminary. They hired J. Gordon Melton,
a prominent New Ager to present a paper called A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO THE
HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW.
Basically it was the New Age evangelical caucus pretending to fight the
New Age. This was EMNR (Evangelical
Ministries to New Religions). Then in 1987 it was a combination of Doug Coe (a
Mark Hatfield associate), EMNR, SCP (Spiritual Counterfeits Project), Regent
College (Vancouver, B.C.), Denver Seminary forces combining to host the Gold
Lake Conference in Boulder, Colorado.
Barbara Marx Hubbard was invited to chair that event at their
invitation. Jackie Alnor who was then
Jackie Miller met her husband at a conference where I was one of the
speakers in Phoenix in 1987. He kept pressing
me for an interview and with the treatment the [whole] subject had received
from ETERNITY and knowing of his associations with Eric Pement, et al, I
refused. I did not denounce him
publicly as Jackie claims; however, I did let my audience know of the posture
ETERNITY MAGAZINE had taken in the entire struggle and that generally the magazine
had not been our friend.
They married. Bill Alnor went on to head EMNR (what a surprise) and wrote a book,
again attacking what contained actionable material. I nearly sued. He took excesses by very flaky
evangelical/fundamentalist movements such as the datesetter whose name was I
believe Edgar Whisenant. Then with headlines
he accomplished something that was clearly actionable. The chapter was headed CONSIDER THE
SOURCE. I was the alleged source.
I saw Jackie hanging around on our bulletin
boards and email lists and sent her a couple of messages. Dave Hunt was a false friend for several
years until I cut it off in October of 1987.
I kept the matter private, however,
Jackie's postings forced me to respond and
are bringing it to a head. Maybe it was
time that people know how insidious this battle has really been. Feel free to
pass this on.

First, I will point out, "The Alnor Review," you are referring to was not written by myself--and seems thoroughly documented from firsthand
sources--for example, your website. Secondly--I have written my source for validation of the claims. Anything that has been inadvertently placed in any
of the reports that is inaccurate will be corrected. Since all is well documented, it shouldn't be a problem to view the first hand sources where
the information was acquired.
The correspondence between C. Cumbey and yourselves was circulated publicly and is no new secret. It is unclear why that would even be of concern to
yourselves. Further, you state:

refuting the alleged false information with any needed corrections. Please be precise and include the quote that you are refuting so the correction can
be placed in the right spot.
Further, the information in the article provides biographical material from your own information and Jackie's. How is that "What about not bearing false witness against a brother. You people are just plain liars." ??
Please explain what is inaccurate about this?:

Do you not write with knowledge and authority and documentation on these subjects? Do you not expect people to believe what you have to say about
these things, thus making you an expert or credible source in this field?
I am amazed at how quickly "Christian" ministers threaten people with law suit. Peter Michas and associates, Jacob
Prasch, and now yourself are very
quick to threaten with lawsuit and use verbal abuse and name calling. Being that each, including yourself, makes claims to be a servant of our Lord
Jesus Christ, how do you justify that thinking? Being that each claims to be a pastor of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I would really like a Scriptural
basis for that and the vitriol that invariably accompanies so many "critiques."
If I were not of the Lord, are there no Scriptures you can think of that would cover you being "unjustly persecuted" by myself and others? The
Scriptures are clear---a true witness delivers souls. What you and so many of these so called leaders have presented to me by your behaviour and
words--is nothing that would win me to the Lord--if I didn't already know Him. Shame on you.!!!

glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for
the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified... Yet if
any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf."
" If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye
were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world,
therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have
persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do
unto you for my name's sake, because they know not Him that sent me."

Cumbey’s past history with the Alnors, were two letters from the Law Offices of
Cumbey & Associates. One letter was written to Richard Abanes* who is a
self-described “religion researcher and investigative reporter.” The other
letter was sent to Bill and Jackie Alnor. Cumbey demanded a retraction for
material in Abanes’ book Fishing in Muddy Waters attributed to the Alnors.
Cumbey’s letter to the Alnors [9/28/99] states:
“…I have more than enough material from you and Jackie to
abundantly show malice, a necessary element to a recovery of punitive/exemplary
damages in slander & libel litigation.
Damages will be easy to show.
Since I have seen this in a
number of secular books over the past two years as well, and could not figure
out where writers such as James Garner had gotten it, for the moment, I am
assuming you are the source. I saw the
same information in Noah Hutching's book -- he is issuing a retraction.
For the record, I have never
(1) called Robertson the antichrist; nor (2) issued any type of retraction for
any statements made against him whatsoever.
I stand by all statements I have ever made about the man. I did draw some well known parallels between
what Benjamin Creme was claiming and what Pat Robertson was teaching. I also quoted Pat Robertson's very public
declarations that when the Bible says "every eye shall behold him, it means
on television." These were
absolutely truthful statements and were carefully footnoted by me.
I am hard-copying this demand
and sending it on to your publisher(s) as well. You have 14 days to issue a public retraction as wide as the
dissemination of the false material from the date of this demand.
Do not count on the fact that I
did not sue you as I should have for your equally libelous materials in
SOOTHSAYERS OF THE 2ND EVENT [an Alnor book]….

Dave Hunt’s book by Jackie Alnor:
A Woman Rides the Beast
by Dave Hunt, 1994 Harvest House Publishers,
Reviewed by Jackie
Alnor, The Christian
Sentinel Óð 1995
“Dave Hunt is once again on target in
sounding a much-needed alarm to a sleeping, apathetic church, reminding us to
hold fast to the principles of the Reformation for which our spiritual
ancestors fought and many shed their blood rather than recant the truth.
He has demonstrated once again in his
latest labor of love that he is not afraid of controversy for the sake of truth
even if it puts him out of favor with the academically correct evangelicals who
are compromising the Gospel for the sake of unity with the Roman Catholic
A Woman Rides the Beast flies in the face
of the ecumenical movement that is trying to break down the barriers that
separate the evangelical church from the Roman church. Such documents as
"Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission in the 3rd
Millennium," signed by leading figures in evangelical Christianity such as
Pat Robertson, Charles Colson and J. I. Packer, whitewash the timeless truths
of the Reformation for the sake of temporal political and societal expediency.
History is being ignored and sometimes rewritten in an effort to see
Catholicism as merely another Christian denomination and the Reformation as a
This timely book is a lesson on the
historical past, the prophetic future and the perilous present. The premise is
that the historic Roman Catholic Church fits all the characteristics of the
woman who rides the beast in the 17th chapter of the book of Revelation. The
text gives many clues as to her identity and Hunt makes a solid case for
believing that it is describing the Roman Catholic Church. No other entity yet
known fits the description and it seems highly unlikely that such an entity will
arise out of a vacuum some time in the future.
Some of the clues gleaned from Revelation
concerning the woman are examined in detail, including:
She is a city built on seven hills or
mountains (Rome has historically been called the City on Seven Hills).
She is called "Mystery Babylon"
(Catholicism uses the term "mystery" often in its dogma).
She is in league with earthly kings and
reigns over them (The Catholic Church is the only religious organization with
ambassadors and a city that is a sovereign country).
She is called a "whore" in a
spiritual sense, so she must be a religious entity that claims to belong to
She is clothed in purple and scarlet.
(Cardinals all wear red and so does the pope in his finery.)
She’s identified as a woman. (Catholics
call themselves the "Mother church" and give a woman, Mary, a
She has a golden cup (chalice) in her
hand. (Need I elaborate more?)
She’s clothed with gold and precious
stones. (There is gold on every Catholic altar even in the poorest parishes.
Rome’s real estate holdings and art collections are too costly to estimate.)
She is the Mother of harlots. (Rome’s
priests are frequently involved in immorality due to the difficulty in keeping
their celibacy vows.)
She is drunk on the blood of the saints.
(Remember the Inquisitions? How many people like John Hus has the Roman church
killed for upholding the Word of God? Rome would have us forget.)
She is the mother of abominations.
(Abominations is a term used in the Old Testament to describe idol worshippers;
what church has more idols and bows down to a host?)
Hunt does a thorough job of dissecting the
doctrines and dogmas of the Catholic Church to prove that she has a gospel of
sacramental works and does not teach salvation by grace through faith though
evangelicals today try to say she does.
One of the doctrines he takes on is that
of apostolic succession and papal infallibility. The two go hand in hand. He
spends a large bulk of time documenting papal atrocities down through the centuries.
It is a good lesson is history. Although I studied this in the church history
courses in Bible college, I am dumbfounded to read some of the horror stories
of popes with mistresses and illegitimate offspring, of the papal office being
bought and of all the immoral unconscionable edicts that were put out to
eliminate any opposition to Rome’s hold of both religious and secular power.
Some say this may be stretching it a bit
(I don’t agree), but did you know that the term, "Vicar of Christ"
that is used to describe the pope actually means anti-Christ. Vicar, taken from
"vicarious," is the Latin equivalent of the Greek "anti"
and antichrist means another Christ or instead of Christ, which is the same
meaning the Catholics give to it. (Yet Hunt thinks a future pope will be the
false prophet, not the antichrist). The pope is also called "Holy
Father" and his subjects bow down to him in homage, something Hunt points
out that the apostle Peter did not allow anyone to do to him, yet they claim to
sit in the seat of Peter, whom they falsely claim was the first pope.
Other Roman heresies Hunt takes apart that
fit the description of "abominations" include Purgatory, indulgences,
relics, and the Mass (which is the core of the Catholic church), and a
continual blasphemy that they call the "unbloody sacrifice." Hunt
points out that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness for sins
and that Jesus never would have told us to literally drink His blood because
the drinking of blood was forbidden in the Jewish sacrifices which were
prototypes of His sacrifice. Can any evangelical be in fellowship with those
who put Jesus to open shame daily on thousands of altars every day?
Rather than agreeing not to proselytize
Catholics (which is what was signed by both sides in their covenant), Hunt
encourages evangelicals to share the true gospel of grace with them and tell
them to trust in Jesus (not through Mary) and give their lives over to Him, not
trusting in their false church for their salvation. To do otherwise is to
disobey the Lord Himself who told us to make disciples of all the nations and
to teach them to observe all that He commanded us.
This book is a valuable lesson for us in
these perilous times. It is a wake-up call to stand firm for the truth and to
shun the folly of the academically correct propaganda being rammed down our
throats from so-called theologians. The ecumenical movement is gaining steam
and is leading the way in these last days toward the long ago prophesied great
falling away and a false one-world religion.
Hunt puts it this way: "Paul wrote:
‘Though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that
which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed’ (Galatians 1:8). He was
referring to those of his day who ‘pervert the gospel of Christ’ (verse 7).
These ‘Judaizing’ legalists, while partly affirming the true gospel, also
declared that, in addition, one had to be circumcised and keep the law (Acts
15:24). That addendum perverted the gospel and brought Paul’s curse upon them.
Catholicism has had 15 centuries to add things to the gospel that the Judaizers
never imagined. It merits Paul’s curse."

Philippians 1: 27-29
"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that
whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving
together for the faith of the gospel; And in nothing terrified by your
adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of
salvation, and that of God. For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ,
not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;"
1 Peter 3: 13-15
"And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled. But sanctify
the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you
with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed
that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing,
than for evil doing."
Is the response of verbal abuse and threatening lawsuit the response of a man of God towards those that are brethren in the Lord?
If I am a sister in the Lord--are there no Scriptures you can think of on how to behave and deal with problems? I can think of many.
1 Corinthians 6: 1-7
v1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
v2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world be
judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
..4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
v5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one shall be able to judge between his
v6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
v7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take
wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
v 8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren."
When I write to warn it is with the idea that is stated in Ezekiel 3: 19, 21
"Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou
hast delivered thy soul. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man that the righteous sin not, and
he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.'
Titus 2: 7-8 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in
doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed,
having no evil thing to say of you.
Titus 1:7-9 " For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not
selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just,
holy, temperate; Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the

May 30, 2000, we received a further response to our above email, where we had
asked Mr. Alnor to specifically show where there was any error in our
articles--to be specific so that corrections could be made if necessary. We
assumed that his mention of " On the other hand, much of what she has
written, and a few things that you have written really are actionable." in
his email, was the usual threat of lawsuit and intimidation tactics, which has
so often accompanied many claiming to be "Christian." Our apology for that
misunderstanding. However, Mr. Alnor failed to provide any correction or
repudiation to the articles--other than what his first email stated. Our
"Ed. Note: Alnor fails to mention his position with Eternity magazine"
which was what appears to have prompted his initial correspondence, was proven
to be accurate in that he stated in his own email "... I am not associated
with EMNR, and when I was I stoood firmly against other EMNR board
members -- including Eric Pement.>" In other words, our editorial comment was

Thank you for your response. When did I threaten you with a lawsuit? I told you
it is actionable. I won't respond to you any further. More lies.

won't save you. Prayer is merely expressing to God how you
