Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism

The conference of the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism was held in Atlanta, Georgia (USA), the 13-15 of March 2000. Called LCJE-NA 2000 Conference 1a (go to Lausanne 1b & then Upcoming events)  - it lists one of the “facilitators” as  “Tuvya Zaretsky, President of LCJE International,  Jews for Jesus, Los Angeles, CA”.  

Susan Perlman, on the Board and staff of Jews For Jesus, is moderator of a panel discussion while, Dr. Louis Goldberg, of Jews for Jesus and Dr. Mitch Glaser of Chosen People Ministries listed among the various speakers.

The LCJE is part of the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization and Tuvya Zaretsky sits on the International Lausanne Committee 1c (ILC)”

From the LCJE information we read:

“The Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) brings together leaders in Jewish missions from all over the world. There are regional branches which cover North America, South America, Israel, Europe, South Africa, Australia/New Zealand, and Japan. The LCJE-NA, our North American branch, meets annually. The International Consultation meets every four or five years. The LCJE has a five-fold purpose:

1. to gather and catalogue information useful in Jewish evangelism and to furnish such material in an occasional publication,
2. to provide a platform on which Jewish missions can meet to coordinate strategies,
3. to monitor and report trends in the Jewish community,
4. to stimulate theological and missiological research related to Jewish evangelism, and
5. to arrange consultations that will be useful to those engaged in Jewish evangelism.

From The Lausanne Movement Website 2 the LCJE is promoted with the stipulation that, “…To join you need to agree to the Lausanne Covenant (a broadly evangelical statement of basic doctrine and belief to preach the gospel), pay some dues (U.S. $25 per year for individuals, pro-rated according to size for organizations), and have the recommendation of two members…”

The Lausanne Covenant formulated at the International Congress on World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland, July 1974 and set the course for the agenda of the World Christian Movement. Al Dager’s 3 –Part series called The World Christian Movement, explains the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization and states:

“…In the churches today there are popular voices that are using Christian terms to mask an agenda of global, ecumenical dimensions. The goal is to enlist the support of the majority of those who call themselves Christians in order to advance that agenda under the name of “world evangelization” – a term originally coined by the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization in 1974. “10

”…World evangelization forms the basis of what has come to be called “the World Christian Movement.” The goal of the World Christian Movement is to evangelize the world by A.D. 2000 through social and political action based on a mandate to alleviate the world of its suffering.” 11.  

 “So pervasive has the Lausanne Covenant become among the vast majority of Evangelical churches that a Christianity Today article has stated, “The unifying question has quickly become: ‘Do you subscribe to the Lausanne Covenant?”’ 12

 

 

And what concord hath Christ with Belial?         

 or  what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?”  

2 Corinthians 6:15

 

What Al Dager's World Christian Movement [WCM] series perhaps failed to say clearly, was that besides the inroads of the Perspectives courses accepted globally and the myriad of “Christian” organizations all committed to the same purpose, the local churches are all involved in the WCM through the Lighthouse Movement and the Cell Church Movement. 

 Jews for Jesus involvement with the WCM goes back clearly to their speaking engagement and participation at GCOWE '95 which was sponsored by Christo/pagan Paul (David) Yonggi Cho at his megachurch in Seoul, South Korea, and perhaps before.  Staff from Fullers School of World Missions went to Korea as well to find out about the cell church movement from Cho. “The purpose was to learn how to plant churches in the same fashion…”13.  

Keeping in mind the role of John Wimber, Fuller Theological Seminary and all the para-church organizations involved in the ecumenical movement, a former assistant to Wimber states how the strategies evolved.

“…during the  "think tank" years at Fuller Seminary,  when John Wimber, David  Yonggi Cho, C. Peter Wagner, Bill Bright [CNP], Jay Grimstead, Donald McGavran  ,  Ralph Winter, Billy Graham,  David DuPlessis, Robert Grant  (CNP), Don Richardson, etc., etc.. were all there..  and the  "strategies"  and "methodologies" of "taking the world  for Jesus"  were  being developed (i.e. Lausanne, GCOWE,  AD2000  and Beyond Movement strategies, the contextualized gospel, the global "harvest"  and "revival" ect)…. John traveled extensively for Fuller as a "church growth expert (i.e. cell group theory ala Cho) and taught seminars worldwide to hundreds of thousands of pastors "equipping" them for ministry.. by  the impartation of the "gifts" and "ministries" of  the  Holy Spirit.. John promoted and taught and trained up hundreds of thousands of workers globally to take their places in the new found  "apostolic network"… each submitted under a "mentor" or person above them in a hierarchal authority  structure  - also known  as  "shepherding" doctrine.. he and Cho also introduced these  ideas  to the church in China.. those attending Vineyard churches these past twenty years have all been "equipped" to "use their  gifts" in the manner prescribed by their doctrine, and under their authority…” 14

 “…John could secretly know that his position in the hierarchy (as an apostle) was completely assured. He went on from retiring from the Association of the Vineyard Churches to working directly with  Schuller, Cho,  Hayford et al in perfecting their cell model through the post-denominational church movement and "Touch Ministries", the "Antioch Church Network" and much much more…” 15  

Dark Angels

Wimber’s Power Evangelism and Vineyard provided the amalgamation of evangelicals and charismatics. On December 13-15, 1988, Fuller Theological Seminary held an “Academic Symposium on Power Evangelism.” As mentioned in Joint Prophecies of Rick Joyner & Rabbi CohenPower Evangelism is the impetus behind much of the ecumenical movement.

Forty Evangelicals, Pentecostals and Charismatic leaders attended the conference, which was Wimber's brainchild. He was keynote speaker and 'Power Evangelism' was the textbook. ‘Power Evangelism’ has been updated to include a study guide on how to perform signs and wonders, replete with methodologies. 16  Notables at the Symposium included: C. Peter Wagner, Jack Deere and Neil T. Anderson. The resulting book in 1990, “Wrestling With Dark Angels," edited by C. Peter Wagner and F. Douglas Pennoyer, presented the joint conclusions of the matter. Wagner writes in the Introduction:

“…the decade of the '90s is shaping up as an arena for the greatest outpouring of spiritual power at least in living memory if not in all of Christian history. The fruition of the 90-year old Pentecostal movement, now joined by the charismatic movement and the Third Wave, is one of the chief contributing factors… new and powerful emphases on church growth, compassion for the poor and oppressed, prayer, prophecy and other aspects of the supernatural.” 17

   A striking feature of this build-up …is the new openness to the miraculous works of the Holy Spirit across the lines of historic Christian traditions. For years many evangelicals shunned the reported manifestations of signs and wonders, healings, demonic deliverances and miracles in the Pentecostal and charismatic movements. A few still rather staunchly adhere to their traditional anti-Pentecostal positions, but their ranks are becoming notably thin. 18

“…Lausanne II Congress on World Evangelization, held in Manila in July 1989, was in itself a highly visible and prophetically symbolic stepping stone into the decade of the '90s. In dramatic contrast to Lausanne I, held in Switzerland in 1974, Lausanne II embraced leaders of the Pentecostal/charismatic movements at all levels from the Lausanne Committee itself through the plenary sessions and workshops to the thousands of participants who regularly worshiped with raised hands. Remarkably, the three most attended workshop tracks (of 48 offered) were on the Holy Spirit, spiritual warfare and prayer. Speakers such as Paul Yonggi Cho, Jack Hayford, Omar Cabrera, Dick Eastman, William Kumuyi and many others like them reflected the lowering of the barriers between evangelicals and charismatics over the 15 years between the two congresses. “19

“A much smaller, but also highly significant, meeting of evangelicals, Pentecostals and charismatics was convened by the Fuller Seminary School of World Mission seven months previous to Lausanne II. Under the title "Academic Symposium on Power Evangelism" it brought together 40 scholars representing Christian institutions of higher learning in the United States and Canada on December 13-15, 1988…” 20  [Introduction with list of all participants]

Neil T. Anderson, out of Biola University, wrote the books THE Bondage Breaker, Victory over the Darkness and others in 1990 as a result of the Symposium. These also provided another inroad of Wimbers already well-received "Power Evangelism" into many Evangelical churches, many using the resources repeatedly. Anderson’s books contain such things as, regression 'therapy, also known as reliving a past life or remote viewing in the occult, inner healing and visualization techniques, also identified with the occult. Anderson also started the "Freedom in Christ Ministries" that promotes those same teachings. Like Wimber, Anderson also promotes the false teaching that Christians can be demon possessed. There is a difference between demon possession and testing and  trials.. A true born again Christian cannot be demon possessed.

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with  unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"  2 Cor. 6:14

Acts 10:38  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. (KJV)

Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace...18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
