Welcome! If you are a BSSM student or involved with sozo and Bethel Church, please know this ministry loves you and prays for you. You are welcome here to browse this site. All the factual research on here has been conducted out of love for you with absolutely no financial gain. The research on this site is not merely anecdotal but research based on fact and careful study. Bethel Sozo Research does not hate any leaders or pastors at Bethel Church (no malice/ill-will toward them). We simply wish God's best for them - that they would change their deceptive ways and speak truthfully to people. If these leaders will not teach the Biblical truth about Christ's hypostatic union/divinity to the public, that is their free choice, but they must not call themselves 'Bible teachers' because that is not respecting the true Christian faith (Jude 1:3; Acts 4:12; 2 Cor. 11:4; Matt. 7:15; 1 John 4:1). Enjoy this site and God bless you! With love and civility, BSRJ

A farewell message, and I love you...

Dear Beloved Readers,

Thank you for coming to my site for the years past. This site has been home to over 130,000 viewers as of today. For about five years now, since August of 2012, I have spent and sacrificed my little and valuable spare time in service to you, the Body of Christ, to alert you to the dangers of sozo and Bethel Church. Why? What do we live for, if not to make life easier for one another?

I have received messages, comments and visitors from all over the world on this site, including grandmothers and parents who are trying to make sense of their grandchildren's and children's estrangements and cultic behaviors.  I hope this site has been a source for you of comfort and truth.

The Bible says, "God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all". Darkness includes lies, heresies and compromises in the church.

This website has become an open forum now and going forward. I will not be checking it at all going forward. This is simply my loving contribution to the public in Jesus' name. May all said on here bless others going forward and to God be the glory.  If you would like to use the Facebook page for an open forum, please do so.  If you would like to use my writings in your publication, feel free to do so and please site the source (my website) and Las Vegas, NV.

To all who have suffered at the hands of Sozo and Bethel....there will be a day when the burdens of this world will be no more. He will wipe away our sorrow resulting from the horrors and traumas of the cults and the devil's schemes. Think of that! No more tears, pain nor fears. To you who have family members in a cult, like myself, not a tear or prayer of yours is wasted. Indeed, losing someone to a cult can be more painful than a death. Until that day of no more tears, just be held, and hold on to Jesus and His sound truth.

May this website be a tool in the Holy Spirit's hand. I am simply an unworthy servant. God has more for me to do now in His name, and I forget what is behind and press on. What can I say? There is a season for everything. Every day is a gift from God, so use it for His glory.

Still standing strong in Christ (Philippians 4:13),

Romans 16:17-18

A quick question: Is sozo more dangerous than scientology? A look at blatantly obvious vs. disguised falsehood...

Do you think sozo is more or less dangerous than Scientology?

Here is why I ask: Scientology has nothing to do with Jesus; as far as I understand, Scientologists do not really use the word Jesus or talk about Jesus at all.  They also do not claim to be Christians. 

On the other hand, sozo teachers and "sozoists" claim that what they are doing is of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  They claim that sozo is Christian, yet the followers of Bill Johnson deny Christ's divinity and hypostatic union before He was age thirty.  This disguise may prove to be particularly more enticing to others, you think? 

Which one is more dangerous, then?  The blatantly obvious cult or the disguised "Christian" cult?  "Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won't be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth" (Eph. 4:14; nlv).
What do you say?

"Oh, that you would bear with me in a little folly—and indeed you do bear with me. For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!" (2 Corinthians 11:1-4)

12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works." (vs. 12-15)
