Alpha course cult

In the hands of a solidly evangelical teacher, the Alpha Course can be excellent. In the hands of someone trying to push beliefs and practices that are biblically questionable, the Alpha Course can be used to indoctrinate and mislead. As with any course or teaching, we must be diligent and discerning.

The Alpha course is an evangelistic initiative begun by Holy Trinity Brompton - perhaps better known now for its promotion of the Toronto Blessing.

While I could never recommend the Alpha course to anyone, it being a protestant entity with protestant teachings I would be loathe to call it a cult. My main gripe with the Alpha course, aside from it being adverse to Catholic teaching is the fact that it's a copywrited program which cost's money to any denomination that decides to offer it.

After a few weeks the Alpha course was mentioned as a way to understand Christianity and how to become a Christian. This, I thought, was a good opportunity for me to 'get my head straight' once and for all. I could attend the course and I would have a meal and make friends as well - excellent.

The Alpha Course may be offered at your church even now. The sad reality is that even our church leaders fail to test every program against the light of Scripture. And so it has become increasingly easy for Satan to slip into God’s house unannounced and unnoticed.

The Alpha Cult has been great for fund managers because once they have had a good run, more often by luck rather than skill, people flock to their fund. The size of the pot they manage, called Assets Under Management (AUM) grows quickly as a result. A successful fund that has £1 billion in AUM charging a fee of 1.3% would earn £13 million per year.

The Alpha Course does not teach sound doctrine, and leads people to a false Jesus and a false spirit. Sadly many church leaders who promote the Alpha Course are not also faithfully preaching the Word of God from their pulpits either. This is a serious matter for all believers to be aware of and to talk to others (and their church leaders) about.

I've had the impression of it as a sort of cult, and friends of mine who are vicars often complain about the course as nonsence etc. If I do go on one, I'll document it on my blog.

Many leaders of the Alpha course think that if a person attends the course and agrees with everything in it, then he is saved. The above facts deny this flatly! The most marked sign of a cult is the way it denies God's way of salvation; it exalts and teaches Man's ability to reach God by his own efforts. This is a direct lie and is anti-God.
