This report is about Dobson's & Focus On The Family braking fidelity to Christ.

[pmi will keep this account as current as possible-we continue to pray for Dr. Dobson and Focus On The Family staff.]

March 20, 2001 at 7:05 am Focus On The Family Confirmed their planned meeting with the Muslims, the Mormons and Catholics to join forces to fight homosexuality...Brian Cooper was confirmed as a FOTF employee-and the following witness is now confirmed.

Focus On The Family To Join Forces [as of July 9th, 2001 HAS JOINED] with non-Christ centered faiths e.g. Muslims, Mormons, and we might add Catholics, Jews, and mainline denominations like the Southern Baptist, Nazarene, Presbyterians, etc.  To Fight Homosexuality...

[peacemakers.net comments...

  #1: Biblically, Christians are told to judge those within the church and not those outside the church,
1 Corinthians 5.  Dr. Dobson is spending millions of dollar as a social moral activist NOT as a Christian, while Dr. Dobson, his home "church" (eastborough.org) and denomination (Nazarene.org) reject biblical discipline within God's body.

  #2: Dr. Dobson, unbiblically judges (even Christ did not come to judge - John 3:17) homosexuality as most evil while in contrast neglecting God's inclusion of greed, slander, gossip, unfaithfulness, cowardliness, drunkeness, idolaters, etc. on God's lists of sins.  Christ denounces most harshly (Matthew 23) religious leaders, Pharisees, false teachers, religious hypocrites, warning sinners, Matthew 5:20  "For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed {the righteousness} of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven."

  #3:  In Christ, all man made religions (whether they use the name of Christ or not), philosphies and lifestyles, are  "judged already, because they have not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:16-21), and true Christians are called to witness as Christ Jesus-through love NOT contempt, patience NOT hate, blessings NOT evil for evil, and living out Christ's Gospel, etc. to the lost...remembering God's warning not to be yoked/joined with them. "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?" 2Corinthians 6:14

  #4: also see Dr. Jay Adam'sBe Ye NOT Unequally Yoked]


I [Brian Cooper] was put one "unpaid suspension" today for sending the following e-mail to 275 people in the ministry:

This letter was sent to Dr. Dobson on 3-7-01. So far I have not received any response, whatsoever. In order to be true to the Word of God, and my own conscience and convictions… I must send this letter to you. I may be terminated for sending this e-mail, so YOU must carry the torch! Do what you can to keep Focus from making this gigantic mistake! I will miss most of you. Some of you are my best friends!  You can also visit our website at www.freedomquestministries.org

God bless you!!!!! Brian V. Cooper

Dear Dr. Dobson,

I trust that this letter finds you walking in the fullness of God’s calling on your life, and I wish you nothing but His Grace and Peace, through His Son, Jesus Christ. It is with an extremely heavy heart that I write you this letter, for it is not a letter of praise, but instead, a letter of warning. I say these things as a child of God, not as an employee. I love this ministry, and I look up to you as a Father figure (even though you don’t know me personally). I still believe in what we are doing here at Focus on the Family, but I fear that we have left our first love. To read the beautiful epistle to the Ephesians, one might find it difficult to grasp, that they, too, left their first love (Revelation 2:4). Please do not dismiss this charge, off hand. Jim Bakker and the PTL staff also did not heed the many warnings and thousands of innocent people were wounded… some still bear the scars. Do you think that PTL thought that they would fall from within? Of course not. Doctor Dobson, you even predicted that if we do fall… it will be from within. Let’s hope that is not a self-fulfilling prophecy!
 

Evidence of our compromise (and Judgement) abounds. In the last few weeks, Focus on the Family has had two cultic groups come in and lead worship (Oneness Pentecostal and Seventh Day Adventist). Two key people have fallen into sin (John Paulk {already "restored"} and Mike Trout). And the treatment of Ryan’s divorce [Dr. Dobson's son] has gone to the extreme to where someone was fired for simply discussing the issue. Further proof of our faltering perspective was announced in a DMG meeting in February. It was revealed that Focus on the Family will officially be working with the LDS/Mormon Church in the future, on political issues. We are even scheduled to host an event where the LDS/Muslims/Catholics are invited guests! The Muslims are the leading murderers of Christians in Sudan, India, and around the world! This alliance is so blatantly unwise and unscriptural that I scarce can take it in. As you may know, I have dedicated my life to reaching the LDS with the TRUE Jesus Christ and the TRUE Gospel. I know them… I know how they think and how they operate. Their leaders are deceived and are deceivers. Focus is out of its league when it comes to dealing with the deceptive practices of the LDS. They are like the scheming Gibeonites in chapter nine of Joshua. Focus is making an alliance against God’s will. God has warned us, over and over, to not fellowship with darkness! Focus has no clue as to why the LDS church is fighting homosexuality. It is because if homosexuality is ever legalized, then polygamy will follow closely in its footsteps. This would be the biggest PR disaster in LDS history! The official position of the LDS church is that they do not practice polygamy for one reason, and one reason only: IT IS ILLEGAL! If it became legal, they would then have to practice it again (or have another embarrassing "revelation")! The LDS church will chew you up, and spit you out. They will use you as long as they can get something out of it! . Initially, they will use you to not only fight homosexuality, but al so to lend them credibility. They want to be seen as "just another Christian denomination." This will empower them to proselytize weak and ignorant sheep… and knowingly or not, Focus seems willing to help them in their ravenous plot.
 

The LDS teach some of the most bizarre and blasphemous doctrines that one could ever imagine. These are some of their official pillars:

A) God is just an exalted man!
B) God had sex with the Virgin Mary, to SIRE his one and only son in the flesh!
C) There are many Gods!
D) Jesus killed people by the thousands!
E) Black skin is a curse from God! (Ralph Kelly?) (See enclosed "Dirty Little Secret")
F) Salvation by works!
G) Baptism for the dead!
H) All other churches are of the Devil! (including yours and mine)
I) All other churches beliefs are an abomination to God!

Focus is acting like politics are more important than Truth. The Campaign for Righteousness says that our #1 mission is to introduce people to Christ. In the past, the ministry has refused to reach out to the cults for "fear of offending them." Now we are going to endorse them? If we can do a broadcast on Messianic Judaism, we can do a program designed to reach those trapped in the snare of the cults. Jesus said to leave the 99 safe sheep, and go after the one that has fallen into the pit. If the temporal (politics) has become more important that the eternal (Truth) then why not change the name of our mission statement to the "Campaign for Republicans," it would be more accurate. I understand that we are also working with Catholic groups. As a Protestant, I "protest" some of their doctrines, but the LDS and Catholics are apples and oranges! The LDS have NO ORTHODOX THEOLOGY! NONE!

What good is it if we gain the whole world but lose our soul? What good is it if we save a marriage, but the family goes to hell? Are we here to win souls… or win elections?

God’s Word is clear:

II John 1:8-11, says, "Watch yourselves, that you might not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward

    9 Anyone that goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.

    10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting.

    11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds."

Romans 12:9, says, "Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good."

I Corinthians 15:33, says, "Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals.''

I Thessalonians 5:22, says, "…abstain from every form of evil."

II Timothy 3:13, says, "But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived."

I Corinthians 10:20, says, "… but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God;   and I do not want you to become sharers in demons."

II Corinthians 6:14-17, says, "Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

    15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?

    16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    17 "Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,'' says the Lord. "and do not touch what is unclean; and I will welcome you."

Ephesians 5:11, says, "Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them."

To our face the LDS say that they are our brothers, but behind closed doors, they say that we are of the Devil!

    James 3:10-15, says, "…from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.

    11 Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water?

    12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce fresh.

    13 Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.

    14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth.

    15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, and +demonic."

Jesus said in Matthew 12:33-36, "Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.

    34 "You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.

    35 "The good man brings out of his good treasure what is good; and the evil man brings out of his evil treasure what is evil.

    36 "But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment."
 

The Apostle Paul warned us about the LDS in Galatians 1:6, "I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;

    7 which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.

    8 But even if we, or an angel (Moroni?) from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have already preached to you, he is to be accursed!"
 

Hebrews 5:11-14, says, "Concerning Jesus, we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.

    12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

    13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant.

    14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil."

PLEASE DON’T SKIP THROUGH THESE VERSES. GOD’S WORD IS THE LIGHT UNTO OUR PATH, NOT EARTHLY WISDOM OR POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY.

I have heard a lot of people giving their opinion as to why this alliance is OK, but I haven’t heard anyone give any scriptural basis for the alliance. There is a reason for that… there is no scriptural basis! The analogy being used is: If a person was drowning and a Muslim and an atheist were trying to pull him out of the water with a rope, would you help. Well, the answer is no! If the person is drowning is sin, their rope won’t save him! The only rope that will save… is Jesus! I know you do not deny this.

The Apostle Paul explicitly stated in I Corinthians 5:11, "But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with anyone that calls himself a brother, if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler, not even to eat with such a one."

Let us take heed from where we have fallen. We are compromising for power and political clout!  To Him… compromise is compromise. In this case, the ends definitely DO NOT justify the means.

Can you imagine Peter, James, and John putting together a conference with the Nicolaitane, or the Gnostics… to fight the social scourge of idol worship? Dr. Dobson, I come not as Jonah, wishing that Focus does not repent. I want Focus to continue it’s good work. Although I don’t know you personally, I care about you as a brother in Christ! I also agree with the old saying that if you don’t stand for something… you will fall for anything, and we all appreciate the fact that Focus is willing to take a stand on political and moral issues. But I also believe the words of our Savior when He warned us not to build on sinking sand. The storm is coming, Dr. Dobson… but I believe that it is not too late to repent, and rebuild this house on The Rock!

On today’s broadcast, you and the Focus board kept emphasizing the first half of Jabez’ prayer. "Expand my borders." What about the second half? "Keep me from evil that I may do no harm." If Focus forms an alliance with the LDS, that would be like a compulsive gambler praying, "Lord keep me from evil," as he walks into a casino. That would be like John Paulk praying, "Lord keep me from evil," as he walked into that gay bar. Many have said, "What a colossal lapse in judgement!" "Look how he hurt our credibility!" But the alliance with the LDS church, will make Paulk’s "mistake" look like the proverbial molehill, compared to Pikes Peak!

Dr. Dobson, my brother, read the second half of that verse. Have no fellowship with the ENEMIES OF JESUS CHRIST, and you will "do no harm." Disregard the second half of that verse, and the spiritual carnage will be as Armageddon.

Be not deceived. God will not be mocked… we will reap what we sow. If Focus forms this alliance with the enemies of the Cross, we will reap the whirlwind. Did God tell you to align with the LDS? If He did not… why did you do it? If God is in this political agenda, you don't need to align yourself with His enemies. He doesn't need or want their help. If God is not in this... why are you? The world says there is strength in numbers… Believers say there is strength in GOD. Ask Gideon! We condemn liberal Republicans for welcoming homosexuals into the "Big Tent"… but this is far worse! They are compromising politics, but we are compromising the Gospel!

"To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:

…I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves (LDS?) apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false;

    3 and you have perseverance and have endured for My name's sake, and have not grown weary.

    4 "But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

    5 "Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place unless you repent… He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
 

Shall we continue in sin… that Grace may abound? God forbid! You do NOT want to hear, "MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN."

In Jesus,
Brian V. Cooper

P.S. Dr. Dobson, even if you disagree with this letter, please acknowledge it somehow that I may know that you actually received it. Thank you.
