Alex Bryan EXPOSES Spiritual Formation in Adventist Church

"We attract people prone to paranoia.  We grow them up in their paranoia.  And we become a paranoid church, a paranoid congregation".  (Alex Bryan, Present Truth and Revelation 14:1-12 Sermon, One Project Gathering Seattle 2014, minute 9)

According to Pastor Alex Bryan, his congregation is paranoid.  But really, shouldn't Protestants be on guard when the One Project spiritual formation movement (Papal Inquisition) comes around?

THE ONE PROJECT PAPAL INQUISITION

The "Inquisition was established in response to movements considered apostate or heretical" (Medieval Inquisition, Wikipedia):  "Burn in hell, you heretic". (Sam Leonor, Simon Peter Sermon, The Desire of All Ages One Project gathering in Melbourne, Australia, 2015, https://vimeo.com/136566076 minute 7)  One Project leader Sam Leonor pastors at La Sierra University.  https://the1project.org/person/details/9
 
CRUEL AND ARROGANT PRIESTS

"Pope Innocent IV issued a papal bull entitled Ad extirpanda, which authorized the use of torture by inquisitors" (Medieval Inquisition, Wikipedia):   "I get too mean, I get too arrogant, too snarky, and too cynical."  (Timothy Gillespie, The Way of Jesus, One Project Seattle Gathering 2014, http://vimeo.com/89451702 minute 17)  One Project leader Tim Gillespie is on the faculty at Loma Linda University and the La Sierra University Divinity School.  https://the1project.org/person/details/8
 
"Further, since a demonic sexual craze had swept the officers of the Inquisition, we should not be too surprised to discover that much of this "sexual hue" revolved around the priest's obsession, not just with sex, but perverted sex" (The True Face Of The Roman Catholic Inquisition -- Rotten Spiritual Fruit From The Abyss Of Hell Part 2, http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/N1676b.cfm):  "My brother, I've been to your house. I've had the dirty bird".  (Tim Gillespie, The Heresy Response Sermon, One Project 6 Gathering, http://vimeo.com/71480214 minute 14)(see at right)

AND WHEN THEY'RE NOT BUSY WITH DEVIANT SEX ACTS

"We assassinate the character of those we have not even met".   (Tim Gillespie, Matthew 5:21-26 Sermon, One Project Gathering San Diego 2015, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8j4uQ0sDa4 minute 3)    Which is why "there is a pervasive, but largely unacknowledged, culture of fear hovering over the Seventh-day Adventist Church today."  (Mark Johnson, Louisville, CO, Boulder SDA Chairman of the Board, Vision: Fear in the Adventist Church, https://the1project.org/news/2015/6/26/vision:-fear-in-the-adventist-church)

BECAUSE THESE MEN ARE JUST MASQUERADING AS MINISTERS OF CHRIST

"The minister of Jesus Christ will carry truth to present to the people, and not smut and blacking to injure the reputation of others.  Has Mr. Reed stooped to this, the veriest drudgery of the Devil, may God pity and humanity pity him.   He may not have made up falsehoods out of new cloth, but probably loves those manufactured by 

A TOOL OF SATAN

some tool of Satan, and enjoys peddling them out" (Note to Sister Eliza Burbee, The Review and Herald, 2 Jun 1863, p 8):  "Its not our little backwoods denomination that has a corner on forgetting who Jesus is."  (Tim Gillespie, The Heresy Response Sermon, One Project Chicago Gathering 2013, https://vimeo.com/64796585 minute 18)

"Backwoods" means "unsophisticated; uncouth." http://www.thefreedictionary.com/backwoods

REALITY:  SOPHISTICATED AND STATE-OF-THE-ART

"The Drayson Center opened on January 11, 1995 as a $16.2 million health and wellness center emphasizing and promoting physical, emotional and spiritual wholeness. Today, the Drayson Center is a 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility". http://drayson.llu.edu/about

BLATANT HYPOCRISY

These men all claim to be Adventist ministers:  "First, the co-founders are Adventist." https://the1project.org/about/faq  While depreciating this wonderful church as "backwoods".  (see above)

And so they wander from continent to continent, engaged in "the veriest drudgery of the Devil" (per Note to Sister Eliza Burbee, The Review and Herald, 2 Jun 1863, p 8):
  • Character assassination
  • Inviting their critics to "Burn in hell, you heretic"
  • Manifesting spite and malice towards others
None of these are jobs Jesus calls his ministers to, so there's just one possibility left:

"We knew either we're crazy, or we've been called." (Sam Leonor, Simon Peter Sermon, The Desire of All Ages One Project gathering in Melbourne, Australia, 2015, https://vimeo.com/136566076 minute 26)

"Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a "psychosis" in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of delusions, which are unshakable beliefs in something untrue." http://www.webmd.com/schizophrenia/guide/delusional-disorder

Like Dr. Gillespie's "unshakable belief" that the state-of-the-art Seventh-day Adventist church is "backwoods".   Or Pastor Leonor's "unshakable belief" that "heretics" should be told to "burn in hell".

SURE THEY'RE ACCOMPLISHED PREACHERS

"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, 

BUT WHETHER CRAZY OR CALLED, THEY'RE JUST CLANGING CYMBALS

but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal." (1 Corinthians 13:1 NIV, Holy Bible)
