Why Buy These Resources?

My bookstore and websites offer crucial research documentation, addressing pressing Church issues biblically and with a kindhearted and compassionate delivery. This wealth of information will keep you informed and equipped to navigate the spiritual landscape. 

The insightful documentation in various materials in my bookstore is further clarified and supported by three online resources I have built:  SpiritJournaling.com, DangersOfYoga.com, and my main research site, SpiritualResearchNetwork.org. These resources are designed to educate and empower you to address dangerous teachings and practices in the Church.

The SpiritJournaling.com website, in its early stages, serves a vital purpose-to expose and warn about the dangers of occult/spiritistic practices in the world and the Church. This cautionary resource is designed to keep you aware and vigilant against these potential threats. One of the massive threats coming against the Church today is through the reception of unbiblical, telepathic, and oftentimes sensory-oriented "messages from Jesus." Sarah Young's Jesus Calling Series is just one of these types of spiritistic deceptions.

Sadly, the 45 million plus readers of Sarah Young's Jesus Calling devotional series have no idea that there are 50 OCCULT TRAINING PRINCIPLES EMBEDDED THROUGHOUT the Series. Brenna E. Scott's eight-year book research project proves this. At SpiritJournaling.com, Brenna's book can be read online for FREE. Hard copies can be obtained from our store: Christian Journaling or Psychic Channeling?: A Critical Comparison of the Jesus Calling Series with Occult Training Literature.

More glaring examples of dangerous occult influences entering the Church are variations of psychics, telepathy, clairaudience, clairsentience, and even necromancy (communicating with the dead). The first chapter of The Titanic and Today's Church—A Tale of Two Shipwrecks gives an example of a variation of necromancy that Pastor Steve and his wife Sarah have been promoting for many years. See Dead Men Talking: Necromancy In Today's Church

Altogether, the products in my bookstore are designed to inspire and motivate believers to stand firm in the Gospel's truth and uphold the Word of God. This empowerment will help you stay strong in your Christian faith, unwavering in the face of spiritual challenges.


Below here is a Remembrance Statement about my good friend Ray Yungen. Ray went to be with the Lord in 2016. Ray's Publisher (Lighthouse Trails) wrote this statement about Ray, and I wholeheartedly agree. Some of Ray's excellent materials can be found in my bookstore here if you are interested. I also manage a YouTube account for Ray. Ray wanted to get Jesus's Gospel message out (and his own books sharing the truth) to as many people as possible. 

"Ray was a man who loved life, loved people, and loved God. His tenderhearted manner touched all who came to know him. In addition to his researching and writing, he enjoyed spending time over a good cup of coffee with friends, listening to music, and being in nature. Ray had a zeal for truth and was passionate in his desire to help others find and know truth as well. He loved God’s Word and used it as a measuring rod in all he did and believed. Ray’s research and writing ministry impacted tens of thousands of people throughout the world, and he will be sorely missed by many. He has left an indelible imprint on the Christian church that will be remembered for years to come. Ray’s writings and lectures will continue to be distributed through his publisher, Lighthouse Trails Publishing."
