Welcome to Spotlight Ministries
This is a Christian website focusing on apologetics (apologia = defence of the faith), theology, and examining other belief systems, practices, world views, new religious movements, sub-cultures and philosophies, in a respectful way. More about what this website is about can be found here:
Last Site Update - March 2014I was recently interviewed on the online radio show The Renewed Mind with Julian Charles. This began with a discussion about my ministry on the internet over the years and how this has moved into YouTube. I briefly highlight how and why Christians should be using the internet more in our outreach efforts and seek to encourage ways that this can be done. The main bulk of the interview, however, was on my testimony of deliverance from occultism and demon possession. If you enjoy downloading good quality Mp3s on a wide variety of interesting subjects I can very highly recommend all of Julian's podcasts. All interviews are free to download.
A Demonic Apparition Caught on Camera? You Decide!
New Book: Dancing with the DevilAn honest look into the occult from former followers. Compiled by Jeff Harshbarger. Available now for pre-order on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk for September 2012. Ten chapters written by former occultists of various stripes and persuasions who are now Christians (my own contribution is in chapter 8). Each individual either briefly describes their journey and/or provides practical help and advice to enable Christians better understand and reach out to our friends in the occult communities.
The doctrine of the Trinity defended. This page consists of numerous articles that defend against common criticisms of Trinitarianism.
Although this page has been on this website for some time I am highlighting it here as I have noticed recently that many Christians appear to be falling prey to unorthodox anti-Trinitarian movements. Particularly on the internet, there are many anti-Trinitarian websites that first appear to be run by orthodox Christian ministries. However, on closer inspection, one soon finds that they are actually run by groups that actually deny the Trinity as false, unbiblical and pagan.
Groups that are very prevalent in ensnaring the unwary Christian include: Christiadelphians, some extreme Sacred Name and Hebraic Roots groups (such as The Assemblies of Yahweh and Yahweh's Restoration Ministry), Oneness Pentecostalism, and many, many groups that splintered off from The Worldwide Church of God in the late 1990's (too many to mention here but all have their allegiance to Herbert W. Armstrong). It has been my experience in observing that many of these groups are not as obvious in their differences to mainstream Christianity as (for example) Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses. Often, their denial of The Trinity (and other key doctrines of Christianity such as Christ's Deity, and the Personhood of the Holy Spirit) is, initially, less obvious. Instead, these websites and ministries appear to draw people in with a surface appearance of Christian orthodoxy, and a focus on such things that may be attractive to many Christians, such as a love for Israel or Bible prophecy.
It is my intention to examine these actual groups in more depth in the future, but for now, as all of these movements (as well as numerous individuals) deny the Trinity with the same arguments, I believe this page is a useful resource.
Christian Evangelism on the Internet?
If you are a Christian and using the internet for evangelism don't let anyone try and discourage you by telling you its a waste of time, or you wont change anyone. Such things are not true! I thank God that, over the years, He has saw fit to use this website, the YouTube channel (Shazoolo), and now Facebook, to see many, many people set free and a number have even had powerful conversions to Christianity!
Jesus said: "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. (Mark 16:15)
The internet is a mission field for Christians to reach out into. Let's use it to our full advantage while we still can! Soon, the world will try and silence us.
