Linda Strand's Diabolical Deception

What NOT to do when the Jehovah's Witnesses Come Knocking 

by Barbara Aho

I wish to inform you about a video on witnessing to Jehovah's Witnesses by Linda Strand (seen below), a member of James Knox's Bible Baptist Church, whose strategy for reaching Jehovah's Witness is identical to the interfaith Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization. 

I have extensively researched the global interfaith agenda to compromise and subvert Christianity which has led me to inform Bible-believing Christians about the Lausanne agenda.  As I have family in Bible Baptist Church I was concerned about the dangerous teaching in the video, "What to Do when the Jehovah's Witnesses Come Knocking."   The video below is my critique of this video in which Linda Strand, rather than exhorting Christians to obey the Word of God, teaches Satan's way to interact with Jehovah's Witnesses.

Some Background Information on the Lausanne Movement:

The International Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization was founded in 1974 by Billy Graham as "an international movement that was formed for the purpose of uniting Christian churches to evangelize the world."  Strategies were developed for reaching and evangelizing various people groups, one people group being "Mystics and Cultists."  In 1982, the Lausanne Committee renamed "Evangelical Ministry to Cultists" to "Evangelical Ministries to New Religions."  The name change reflected a new purpose for this ministry - from "evangelizing the cults" to recognizing and legitimizing them as "new religions."

The new-found purpose for Evangelical Ministries to New Religions required a new approach to evangelism: from "preaching the gospel" to cultists to sponsoring "dialogues" with them as new religions.  The hidden agenda was to mainstream the cults and false religions and compromise Christianity. 

Among the first cults to be mainstreamed was Mormonism.  To overcome the obvious doctrinal divide a strategy was developed to promote the notion of "Mormons in Transition," with the vague implication that the Mormon Church, and not only the Mormon Church but many of the false religions, are changing for the better, especially through dialoguing to consensus.  This strategy gave rise to the deceptive notion that the false religions were becoming more Christian.

Although the stated purpose of the Lausanne Congress was Christian "evangelization" of the world before Jesus Christ returns, a far different outcome has been observed.  Through dialoguing with cults and other religions, Christians were becoming more tolerant of people groups and beliefs that diverged from the Word of God.  Fellowship with unbelievers replaced separation from the world and faithfulness to sound doctrine.  Lausanne did not result in Christian evangelization of the world but the world compromising Christianity. 

In 2012, "The first ever Lausanne Movement Consultation for North American Younger Leaders brought together a diverse collection of change agents, thought-practitioners, and younger leaders to strategize on fresh approaches to sharing the Christian message."   No longer would Lausanne sponsor evangelists to preach the gospel, but "change agents, thought-practitioners and younger leaders" would "strategize on fresh approaches to sharing the Christian message."   These change agents, thought-practioners and younger leaders who are "from diverse backgrounds ethnically, geographically, and culturally" and spiritually, have been trained to transform Christian churches to unite to form a one world religion.

Using the identical strategy, Linda Strand, whose pastor is James Knox, is training many change agents to compromise Christians through the video below, "What to do when the Jehovah's Witnesses Come Knocking."  Ultimately, the video is advancing the Lausanne agenda for global church and social transformation.
