Motivational Seminars 
Promote a False Religion


In the newspaper, The Sun (Bremerton, Washington), there has been a full page ad for weeks:

"Get Motivated... Attend this dynamic seminar to increase your productivity and income... Motivation! Inspiration! Career Skills! Wealth Building!"

The speakers at the Seattle event scheduled for August 23 or 24, 2004 are Zig Ziglar, Dick Vitale, Goldie Hawn, Tom Hopkins, Matt Hasselbeck, Rudolph Giuliani, and "Special Mystery Speaker... One of the five most recognizable people on the planet."

Included in small print at the bottom of the article is a, "special optional 15 minute bonus session on the Biblical secrets of success."

This seminar is advertised on the CRISTA Ministries' Spirit 105.3 website:

"The following events have been advertised and announced on SPIRIT 105.3 FM."

"Take your entire office, as many people as you want, to a blockbuster event featuring Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Zig Ziglar, Dick Vitale, Goldie Hawn, and business gurus George Ross (Sr. VP of Trump Industries) and America's #1 sales trainer, Tom Hopkins. They'll motivate everybody in productivity, winning and selling. All this for your entire office for only $49. Call to reserve your seats now, if you wait, the cost goes to $200."

Zig Ziglar is the "head liner" for the "Get Motivated" seminar. He has been closely associated with James Dobson and "Focus on the Family" for years which promotes the Humanistic Psychology concept of "Self Esteem". One of Ziglar's famous books is See You At The Top. On the back of the 1982 edition of the book is a photo of Zig Ziglar shaking hands with the 33rd degree Freemason, the late Norman Vincent Peale, who is endorsing the book. Peale was famous for promoting "Positive Thinking".

Over the years I have seen so many professing Evangelical Christians drawn away from a pure devotion to Jesus Christ and the truth of His word to this "broken cistern that cannot hold water."

"Be astonished, O heavens, at this, And be horribly afraid; Be very desolate," says the LORD. 'For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns — broken cisterns that can hold no water."
