Strategic-level spiritual warfare, popular in the Apostolic
Culmination, often involves going to the highest place in a city or region,
like a mountain top, with attempts to bind "territorial spirits," the "high-ranking demons" that rule
over specific geographical regions.
The idea is that -
if their demonic grip is
broken - then the people who live in that region will respond en masse to
the Word of God, and they
will be freed of evil strongholds of lust,
greed, envy, gluttony, sloth, pride and wrath.
Many fellowships have eagerly
adopted strategic-level spiritual warfare, believing it's the key to fulfilling
the "Great Commission" which will usher in the "Kingdom Age".
Adherents take part in showy ritualized ceremonies, where they seek to
directly confront territorial spirits by name.
Apostles of the Apostolic
Culmination anoint adherents with specific
John Arnott anoints
adherents with a "new anointing" he calls the "Sword of the Lord" or "Warrior
Anointing" which brings "supernatural power".
The apostles of the Apostolic
Culmination sell a form of supernaturalism that is
suspiciously similar to fantasy
like the fantasy hero adherents are anointed with supernatural powers so
they may attack greater and larger demonic forces.
Just like video game
manufactures charge consumers for their games,
Apostolic Culmination adherents are
charged a fee to receive the next new "anointing."
And if you could not
attend the "conference" you can
purchase a DVD of past events and past training sessions for a nominal fee.
If you have 'faith' then you too will receive the "anointing!"

individual can control and be controlled or possessed by supernatural
entities - angels and demons in polytheistic neoavangelic cults and animal spirits in shamanistic

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The

occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human
race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at
the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through
distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population
has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite
that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
