Is Sozo a cult? What is Sozo? A look at the new Scientology, Bethel Church, Bill Johnson and the new age...

A while back, I wrote about Sozo being more dangerous than Scientology.  In a nutshell, Sozo is more cleverly disguised than Scientology. TruNews provides an audio discussion at the link below.

Below, Rick Wiles of TruNews describes Sozo:

New Age churches such as Bethel in Redding California are teaching people to vibrate and get into harmony with God and the universe.  They are also anticipating audibly hearing a new sound from Heaven.  And a popular craze currently circulating in many Charismanic churches – especially Bethel - is something called Sozo Prayer. 
We're going to discuss the Sozo Prayer movement today and some other weird things happening in the New Age charismanic churches.

Without a doubt, the premier name in New Age churches is Bethel in Redding California.  Over 8,000 people attend religious services each week at Bethel.   The senior pastor is Rev. Bill Johnson. They emphasize the super-natural.

Is the practice of sozo linked to scientology and kabbalah?

Is there a link between sozo, Scientology and Kabbalah? What do you think?  Scientologists do "auditing" while sozo people do "editing".  Are these similar practices?  Please check out the following video! 
"There are major parallels that go beyond incidental...it all comes from the same spirit...all this stuff is strongly connected."

Hi there, friends!  Just wanted to let you all know there is a new booklet out by author and pastor Bill Randles.  I hope that this blesses you and may all who you share it with have a changed heart and changed mind, in Jesus's name.  Have a great week!

Is it really the Holy Spirit? Bethel Church and Christianity...

Was reading in the Word this morning, and a question came up in my mind.  I posted this question on the Bethel Church and Christianity Forum today:
"Acts 5:32 -- "And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him." I read this today and was wondering if these people are really teaching by the Holy Spirit, why is it that they are not departing/separating themselves from the false teachings/teachers? That would be obedience to God (Romans 16:17), and the Bible says that the Holy Spirit is given to them that obey him."
Will let you know what replies I receive.  What do you think?  These people speak of the Holy Spirit so much.  In fact they are a part of a regular conference called, "the Holy Spirit Conference".  Would the Holy Spirit be comfortable with all the teachings from books, sermons, etc. that we see coming out of Bethel Church?  I don't think so...

Doesn't Jesus say to "mark and avoid" in Romans 16:17?  Not meaning, mark and avoid those who uphold/defend sound doctrine (like Jesus did!) - but those who cause divisions/offenses CONTRARY TO sound doctrine in the Bible (like the false teachers do).

"Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them who cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them." (Romans 16:17)
