In this talk, we are presented with three keys to keeping churches sounds and three keys which can be used to identify false teaching and false movements which are trying to take the church down a different path contrary to God's word. We are also presented with practical steps to take to keep churches sound so that they can remain focus on the true Gospel and be a beacon of that truth in a world where too many churches are falling for the principles of success which guide the world.
We see so much false teaching in the church today, and so much which causes us to take our focus away from the truth of the pure simple gospel of Jesus. How did we get to this point? What are the roots of the apostasy that we see in the church today? Knowing the roots helps us a great deal in understanding the objectives of the movement and how to strengthen the churches to resist the influences of the movement, which often have already entered the church and grown roots before we know what is happening.

Some go so far as to say that God is finished with Jews as individuals and that there is no hope for them. But what does scripture say? This is a scriptural examination refuting these false claims, centered around what the Apostle Paul taught specifically on this topic in Romans Chapter 11.

Peter Wagner, which also includes the Laughter Movement and the Church Growth movement. What is this movement? Where is it taking us?
