How to Discern Truth from Error

A new teaching series on DVD by Pastor Anton Bosch


A few months ago Discernment Ministries received a special request from a longtime supporter and active discerner. She was invited to teach a woman's Sunday School class in her local church and was in the process of seeking permission from her pastor to talk on the subject of discernment. While she was in discussions with her pastor, she e-mailed us wondering if we could recommend a teaching series on discernment. She wanted something that would address the basics: how to discern, what to discern, the biblical nature of exercising discernment, etc. We realized there really wasn't anything available that we could recommend.

This spurred us on to develop our own teaching series on discernment. We are, after all, Discernment Ministries! Pastor Anton Bosch was particularly enthusiastic about the opportunity to teach on this subject as it is close to his heart. He is well-suited to the task. Pastor Bosch is uniquely gifted in presenting biblical teaching in a style that is easy to be understood. His helpful books include Building Blocks of Encouragement: A Devotional, Building Blocks of the Church: Re-examining the Basics, and Contentiously Contending. (See his website: www.antonbosch.com)

Several of us headed out to Pastor Bosch's church, Sun Valley Community in the Los Angeles area, to spend a few days filming Anton's 7-part teaching series on exercising discernment. Pastor Rod Page volunteered to put together a useful Study Guide to accompany the teachings with an outline and questions for further study.

You will find the Discernment 101 teachings a suitable study series for Sunday School, mid-week or Sunday night services, Bible studies, home groups, or your own private study.

The Rise of End-Time Occultism

We have turned another popular Herescope article series, The Rise of End-Time Occultism, into an E-Booklet, available online as a free download at Gaylene Goodroad's blog:

This book focuses on the rise of a new prophecy eschatology in the evangelical church world that looks NOT for "that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." Many endtime prophecy teachers are switching their focus to an anticipated cosmic invasion of monstrous space alien creatures which some teach Christians must battle using spiritual warfare technologies. Many evangelicals are now believing in these dramatic endtime invasion conspiracy scenarios which are accompanied by salacious imagery and sensational hype. But is all of this biblical?

God's Present of His Presence

Like Cascading Dominoes the intentional departure from believing the Bible is inerrant has plunged the church of the 21st century down the treacherous slippery slope of accommodation and compromise.
