Proclamation, Invitation, & Warning

Frank Viola Promoting Contemplative Spirituality


In the April 2006 newsletter of "Present Testimony Ministry", Frank Viola discusses how he became acquainted with the techniques of mystics in "contemplative" prayer.

See the text of his newsletter.

I sent an email to Frank Viola raising my concerns and suggesting a discussion between him and the Lighthouse Trails people.

Frank Viola is a long-time leader among some segments of the House Church movement.

While not supporting the "house church movement" I am an advocate of house churches. 

I am greatly concerned about the infiltration of ancient Catholic mysticism into the professing Evangelical churches, whether they be institutional churches or house churches.
