Debunking Dark Light: Stewart Best Teaches Initiation Equals Regeneration

Stewart Best teaches that all Christians are on their way to hellfire if they do not experientially undergo seven steps that culminate in a specific experience that he claims is true regeneration.

Of course Stewart does not call his Straight Gate/ Narrow Way teachings initiation, but that is exactly what they are. Stewart adamantly insists that faith in the historical person of Jesus Christ—the Jesus who shed his blood and died on the cross for our sins and rose again to sit at the right hand of the Father—will not save anyone:

If you ask the average Christian how he knows Christ he will answer BY FAITH. If you ask them how they know they are born again, they will respond BY FAITH. If you ask them how they know they are in union with Christ, they will respond, BY FAITH. If you press them, they will become angry, and say THE BIBLE SAYS I AM SAVED, AND THEREFORE I AM SAVED. Indeed? Does it say that? We then have to ask a serious question: DOES THE BIBLE ACTUALLY TEACH THAT REGENERATION AND UNION WITH CHRIST IS APPROPRIATED BY AN ACT OF FAITH? The answer will stun you: NO! It teaches the EXACT OPPOSITE. The doctrine of salvation by an act of faith to APPROPRIATE IT is the very heresy that Christ and Peter warned would sweep the Church.

(Quote source: Hardcopy of Dark Light: Satan's Final Solution For Christians part Eleven-Faith Vs. Knowing page 29)

Stewart Best asserts that all Christians who have trusted in the "Christ of the Cross" to save them and turned their lives over to serve him are on their way to hell if they do not abandon their hope of salvation based upon faith in the "historical Christ" and begin to search for the "real truth," which is fully experiential, according to Best. 

Stewart Best asserts that all Christians must have a supernatural  experience with "another aspect of Christ "that was not in  operation during his visit with us" before they can know they have been regenerated. He says a "hidden aspect of Christ brings union and salvation."  According to Best, regeneration is to  "experience the reality of the inner essence of Christ." 

Stewart teaches that you cannot know this "inner essence of Christ" by having faith in the same Jesus who bore your sins on the cross. No, you must come into experiential contact with this other aspect of Christ— an aspect that was not in operation during his visit with us. This is definitely preaching another Jesus and the receiving of another spirit. Paul wrote: 

For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. 2Cr 11:4

The Bible warns that Christians can be removed from the grace of the real Lord Jesus Christ unto another gospel

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Gal 1:6 I

Stewart's another gospel is initiation—occult initiation.

Stewart Best's seven step initiation theology is believed by many Christians who are rightly troubled at the state of the falling away church today. They are alarmed and disheartened at the fact that many Christians today are not obeying the Lord Jesus Christ and walking in holiness—perhaps including themselves. This legitimate concern has set them up to believe Stewart's theology—which takes out-of-context Bible verses and pieces them together like a puzzle. Stewart Best's video, The Testimony, actually has footage of Stewart putting a puzzle together and likening that to a search for truth. He asserted that the scriptures are like a puzzle that have to be pieced together to form the whole. It is only by piecing (out-of-context) scripture verses together that one can find the truth, according to Stewart. What Best actually does is pluck certain Bible verses from their Holy-Spirit-inspired context, give them an esoteric interpretation, and then take more scriptures to try and back up his out-of-context, new and untrue doctrines.  

 

New Age Music For New Age Teachings

Stewart Best's 1994, video, The Testimony, is about Stewart's search for truth. He explained in this video that he studied the Bible, world religions, and science to find "the truth." New Age music was played during the entire 2-hour video. Stewart teaches that regeneration is obtained by going deep within oneself and meeting "Christ" there in one's inner man. New Age music is designed for this very purpose. It "promotes a psychological movement inward":

This music promotes a psychological movement inward. It has been precisely described by Peter Michael Hamel as "a contemplative music...which is itself capable of being a vehicle, energy-form and magic force for spiritual self absorption, which works by virtue of its own inner laws, as soon as the listener learns how to open himself totally to it. It carries him away — to himself."

Transcendental innerspace music attempts to convey the listener inward and upward to higher planes of consciousness, and is often spoken of as "uplifting." Continuous drones or slowly changing, endlessly repeated rhythmic structures (also popular in so-called Minimalist music, although the composers only talk about the technical characteristics of their work) as well as overall ascending or descending tonal movements are common characteristics of this subcategory. (Source: New Age Music Made Simple)

Stewart Best's articles: False Salvation One and False Salvation Two are on a website with a spacey-looking, design: a black background with stars. Interestingly, orange and black (Halloween colors) were chosen for the primary color scheme. New Age music is played in the background while the unwary reader absorbs Stewart Best's New Age "salvation" doctrines:

This New Age sub-category has the effect of outward psychological expansion. Celestial or cosmic music removes listeners from their ordinary acoustical surroundings by creating stereo sound images of vast, virtually dimensionless spatial environments. In a word — spacey. (Source: New Age Music Made Simple)

The purpose of New Age music is to help put the listener into an altered state of consciousness. Indeed, achieving an altered state of consciousness is a necessary prerequisite for the initiate to be able to to go within himself and connect with his spirit man and wait the inner radiant essence to come to him and set him free. 

 

Faith Vs Initiation

Through Stewart's abundant abuse of scripture verses and incredible amount of repetition, he succeeds in convincing Christians that very few have been regenerated in the first place—and that there are hidden, deep secrets that pertain to salvation that go far beyond the faith once delivered unto the saints. Stewart calls those who refuse to accept his initiation doctrine "the many." Here is an example of how he emphasizes that those who believe in the Jesus of the Bible are not really free (saved):  

This can be proved because the many obviously EMBRACED THE HISTORICAL CHRIST. They embraced Him as Messiah, as Redeemer, as Lord. They accepted His claims as the only Son of God. They accepted much of His doctrine. There is no question whatever that they embraced all of the visible, historical evidences of Christ. They made a 'decision' for this historical Christ. They read the Scriptures and they accepted BY FAITH everything the Scriptures had to say. They not only accepted the statements of Scripture as factual, they claimed them for their own. Yet for all that they WERE NOT SET FREE.

Stewart says that the Lord Jesus Christ, the historical Christ, does not have anything to do with setting the Christian free. This is patently false!

The Lord Jesus Christ sets free those who come to him through faith:

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Ephesians 2:8 

Luciferians regard Lucifer (who the Bible reveals "was cast down to the ground and is now Satan) as "the god of experience." 

Lucifer falsely claims to set men free through initiation:

"Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people now...will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age." (bold emphasis mine) 

Satan (who pretends to be Lucifer before he fell into sin) is a counterfeiter. His offer to set people free is an imitation of Jesus Christ's promise to make men free of sin:

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36

It is the person of the Lord Jesus Christ (yes, the historical Christ, who presently sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us) who sets men free, not another aspect of Christ as Stewart Best asserts. 

 

Proof that This "Another Aspect of Christ" or "Another Truth" is Lucifer

If you are currently following Stewart's Strait Gate/ Narrow Way doctrines, Satan actually has your permission to come to you looking just as you would expect Jesus to look and asking you the same questions He supposedly asked Stewart such as: Have you ever loved? The reason Satan has permission to do this is because if you are willing to submit to an experience based upon your rejection of clearly taught Bible doctrines, then you have willfully given place (given permission) to Satan and his demons to come into your life.

Stewart teaches that it is another aspect of Christ (who is not the historical Christ who died for our sins and rose again) who will set you free. We know that Lucifer offers to set free all who accept his initiation. If the Bible says that the Jesus of the Bible—the historical Christ (who is alive and seated in glory at the right hand of the Father) came to set us free, then we will know that this "another aspect of Christ" is really Lucifer!

Jesus told the people who claimed to be Abraham's children that if they truly were children of Abraham, they would do the works of Abraham. They did not do the works of Abraham but instead, did the deeds of their father, the devil. Therefore the devil was their spiritual father.

That is why Jesus told his own disciples that if they continue in his word, they are his disciples indeed: 

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32

As you already know, many in these days of the falling away of the church from the faith of Jesus are not continuing in Jesus' words. They are becoming apostate or falling away from the faith of Jesus as prophesied in Second Thessalonians, chapter 2. They do not do the works of Jesus, and as such, do not really know the Jesus of the Bible, but only the winking-at-sin-Jesus of their imaginations. They do not really have saving faith because to know Jesus is to obey his word—not to be initiated into union with a counterfeit Christ—who only comes to you when all your faith and hope is gone! 

Stewart has given Jesus' straightforward statement an esoteric meaning and says the truth is some kind of mystical, "another truth" that sets men free. He means of course, that Jesus was not referring to himself as the one who sets men free, but to some other "aspect" of Himself that was not present with Him at the time he was on earth.

Of course Jesus was referring to Himself! He is the way, the truth, and the life, and it is He who sets men free. To say it is not the Jesus of the Bible who sets men free is to say that Lucifer (the counterfeit Christ) sets free! In fact, the "other truth," which Stewart dubs as Truth 2 is definitely Lucifer and this is easily proven. Stewart wrote:

Is there another truth? Are there TWO TRUTHS?
In graphic form, it would like this:

TRUTH 1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TRUTH 2
CHRIST~~~~~~~~~~~~~INNER RADIANT
ESSENCE
VISIBLE TO EYES~~~~~~"WILL SET YOU FREE"
EXTERIOR SIGHT ONLY

 

Truth 2: Inner Radiant Essence is Lucifer!

Stewart Best teaches that it is Truth 2 that will set you free. He terms this particular Truth that is supposed to set the Christian free as an "inner radiant essence" (see excerpt above) and also as simply that inner radiance (see excerpt below): 

It was His inner essence of AGAPE LOVE, THAT WOULD BE BESTOWED UPON HIS "DISCIPLES INDEED", AND THAT TRUTH, THAT INNER RADIANCE IS WHAT WOULD SET THEM FREE FOR EVER. Jesus said THAT TRUTH, and THAT TRUTH ALONE could set a man free, AND THEY WOULD BE FREE "INDEED".

Radiant is an adjective used in New Age writings to describe Lucifer! The radiant "Christ" (Lucifer) is the truth who will set you free according to Stewart Best! The word radiant is not even in the real Bible, the Authorized Version, but you can find the phrases "aspect of Christ" and "inner radiant reality" in New Age writings":

It was these processes, carried on in the form nature, which led eventually to the revelation to the Apostles of the essential nature of the Master they loved and followed, and it is this aspect of Christ - the inner radiant reality - to which the mystics of all times bear testimony, not only in connection with Christ, but in lesser degree in connection with each other also. (bold emphasis mine) Quote source: From Bethlehem to Calvary - Chapter Four - The Third Initiation - The Transfiguration

Occultists seek to call forth and become united with "the Light of the Divine Radiant Essence." (Source: "The "Light" of The Radiant One") The Radiant Essence is Lucifer. Stewart Best chose the same words to name what he terms Truth 2: the inner radiant essence!

Stewart cited the following verse and applied it to the way people speak of his false doctrines that cause Christians to count their faith in Jesus Christ as nothing but the first step in the initiation process (Stewart dubs this mere conversion) and begin to walk the path of occult initiation dressed up in Christian lingo:

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2 Peter 2:2

In reality, it is Stewart who is speaking evil of the way of truth by saying it is not the Lord Jesus Christ who sets us free, but another aspect of Christ—an "inner radiant essence" who is really Lucifer! Out of all the phrases to choose to name this so-called another aspect of Christ, Stewart chose a phrase that theosophists recognize as a name for their Christ!

 

Initiation: What is it?

Let us look first at Webster's definition for initiation:

Main Entry: ini·ti·a·tion 
Pronunciation: i-"ni-shE-'A-sh&n
Function: noun
Date: 1583
1 a : the act or an instance of initiating b : the process of being initiated c : the rites, ceremonies, ordeals, or instructions with which one is made a member of a sect or society or is invested with a particular function or status
2 : the condition of being initiated into some experience or sphere of activity :

Notice that initiation includes instructions with which one is invested with a particular function or status. Stewart says that at authentic regeneration, Agape Love is bestowed and the one thus regenerated (initiated) is invested with the status of union with Christ. This so-called regeneration is only achieved after a long ordeal which includes "soul death."

 

Soul Death in Initiation

Death plays an important role in Stewart's initiation theology. In fact, "death is a common theme in initiatory rites." Stewart makes a big deal of what he terms soul death—of being absolutely dead on the inside. This idea of soul death is critical to Stewart's initiation teachings. I believe this is a doorway that Satan uses to cause some of Stewart's followers to feel depressed and even suicidal.

If a Christian is convinced that he must undergo a fully experiential "soul death"--he must be able to know for a fact and actually experience that he is completely dead on the inside—in order to get to the next step on the way to "regeneration—then he has unknowingly invited Satan to do that very thing in his life. Evil spirits will then have free reign to cause that Christian to feel quite "dead" and will put that Christian through unbelievable emotional torment, because it is not normal to feel dead. Feelings of deadness parallel those of depression. When a person feels emotionally dead, he often feels as if he lacks the energy or will to move, feel, or respond. He may feel numb and physically tired and be incapable of being stirred emotionally or intellectually. In fact, many people who are depressed will confess that they feel dead inside: 

"I know I am living, but I feel dead inside." 

Stewart says this is the lowest room. It is not. The lowest room Jesus spoke of is the place of humility:

But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Luke 14:10,11

Satan's destructive room is for initiates who know they must endure their necessary ordeal to appease their master so he will initiate them into the mysteries.

A Christian must not give place to the devil by seeking to become dead inside in the hopes that he will one day suffer enough in order to qualify for regeneration! We are all born into this world spiritually dead in our sins. We do not die yet another time in order to be regenerated. The Bible does not teach that we have to die in our souls in order to be born again. As Christians, we must reckon ourselves dead unto sin and alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord:

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The deadness we are to have as Christians is a decision we make to be dead to our old way of life and the sinful things of the world:

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Col. 3:3

We must identify with Christ and therefore identify with his death on the cross and his sufferings, but that in no way means we have to experientially undergo a form of death or feel mental anguish in order to merit a born-again experience.  Initiation depends upon one's merit or worthiness, and Christianity depends upon the worthiness or merit of another—The Lord Jesus Christ. Because he is worthy, true Christians will honor him through obedience. And obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ does not equal initiation. Obedience to Satan always equals some kind of an initiation into his hidden mysteries. 

The following excerpt reveals just how closely Stewart's "soul death" doctrine and other teachings pertaining to regeneration parallel that of occult initiation:

In the usual initiation rite, there is a ritual death and rebirth. The initiate dies to his old life and is reborn to a new life as an initiate. With this ritual death and rebirth comes, if the initiate has been properly prepared, a significant change in consciousness and awareness. The initiate emerges transformed -- transfigured. (Source: Death and Initiation http://www.witchvox.com/holidays/samhain/1031_death_initiation.html)

Stewart says this death is actual and occurs in the soul. Stewart asserts that the "narrow wayer" (initiate) must be properly prepared, and that at rebirth the Christian will emerge totally transformed—"regenerated."

It is in initiation, not biblical Christianity, that an initiate must die a "soul death" before he is initiated into the mysteries.

Stewart's assertion that there are seven steps to regeneration (initiation) parallels the Shambhala and the Thelemic Order of the Golden Dawn Esoteric Teachings, which also include 7 steps or grades to initiation. Source of information: The Chakras of Yoga (http://thelemicgoldendawn.tripod.com/chakras.htm) and The revelation of the "Presence" (http://buddhamaitreya.org/revelationPresence.htm)

The webpage called Lucifer Rising Part 2: Occult Initiation contains this startling information about initiation:

Within the world of the New Age and the occult, initiation is the principle key used in advancing the student of mysticism along the path of occult learning. 

C.W. Leadbeater, a leading occultist, Theosophist and Freemason during the early years of the 20th century, revealed that initiation resulted in a "born again" experience. This needs to be understood correctly; the "born again" experience Leadbeater talked about was based on the Luciferic philosophy of Genesis 3: "you will be like God." 

So wonderful is the expansion of the initiate's conscious that it is most apt to speak of the change as the new birth. He begins to lead a new life as "a little child;" the life of the Christ; the intuitional or buddhic consciousness, is born within his heart. (The Masters and the Path, p. 124)

 

Initiation: Goal of The Plan

We already know that the "inner radiant essence" of Christ, who is the "other truth" that Stewart Best asserts is the one who sets men free, is Lucifer. The following excerpt provides more proof that the Luciferic Initiation fits right in with what Stewart claims is spiritual regeneration or rebirth: something that is fully experiential in which one meets with what is supposed to be another "aspect of Christ"—but who we now know is Lucifer:

Goal of the Plan - Initiation: All who wish to enter the New Age 'on the physical plane' [alive] must undergo an 'energy activation' or 'rebirth' - usually marked by a subjective trance induced 'light experience' where one meets either a 'spirit guide' or one's 'higher self' (no difference since 'all is one'). This 'altered state of  consciousness' will eventually lead to a 'Luciferic initiation' into the 'new humanity', or a vow of allegiance to Lucifer as god. (Spangler, 'Reflections on the Christ')

If you follow Stewart Best's teachings, you might object and say that you are not consciously making a vow of allegiance to Lucifer as your god. Well, you are if you count your faith in the real Lord Jesus Christ as only the first step on the ladder of initiation while you embark on a search for "the truth." If you have exercised biblical saving faith in the real Lord Jesus Christ, you have already found the Truth. If you look for what Stewart calls an "inner radiant essence of Christ," then you are looking for Lucifer, even if you are not calling him that. If you seek an experience in which a being appears to you who does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh and is truly God (Did you notice that was not a part of Stewart's testimony? Stewart did not test the spirit and see if it was of God!) but merely talks about agape love, then you are vowing allegiance to Lucifer as your god!

You might say that Stewart never mentions any ways to achieve this altered state of consciousness. Actually, he does. He mentioned using hypnosis and meditation in order to "go deep into the inner mind":

All sorts of methods are used to go deep into the inner mind, such as hypnosis, meditation, etc. (hardcopy of Dark Light chapter 6, p. 12)

This is exactly how Satan's followers are regenerated or born again into the mysteries!

Hypnosis and meditation are ways of expanding one's consciousness and ways of tapping into the power of the subconscious. If a Christian utilizes these or similar practices to expand his consciousness in an attempt to go deep within himself, he will unknowingly invite and achieve contact with the demonic spirit realm! 

Remember, demons are evil opportunists. They will take any place given to them. If a Christian unknowingly engages in an occult methodology, then he will have an experience with demons.

 

Agape Love: Test the Spirits

The bestowment of agape love sounds so nice and godly, but we have already proven that the inner radiant essence, who Stewart says will bestow agape love upon a Christian at the moment of regeneration, is actually Lucifer.

Incidentally, Agape is even the name of a goddess. Pagans teach the concept of agape, even though they do not know the one true God. (Source: She of a Thousand Names—look under the subheading, Isis http://www.goddessworld.com/names.html) 

Here is another example of Agape being the name of a goddess:

Aphrodite is also Inanna, Ishtar, Asherah, Venus. APHRODiTE - aka Goddess of the Western Corner. Greek Goddess of love, beauty, sex, passion, fertility. A firm believer in women's rights. Mother of Eros, Agape, and in some versions of the FI univese, Ariel.

(Source: The Agape or Agapae Pagan and Biblical Background http://www.piney.com/AgapeSummary.html)

My point in mentioning that Agape is the name of a goddess is to illustrate that the use of the phrase, "agape love," in and of itself, does not necessarily mean that one is speaking about the love of God. Christians must obey the Bible and prove everything:

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 1 Thess. 5:21

According to the Thelemic Order of the Golden Dawn (a magickal-religious-scientific order dedicated to the teachings of Aleister Crowley, Thelema and the Golden Dawn) the nature of Thelema is Agape:

 The nature of Thelema (Will) is Agape (Love)

Source: THE THELEMIC NUMBER 93 http://www.luckymojo.com/esoteric/religion/thelema/dc93.txt

The nature of Thelema is agape! Occultists have no problem using the phrase, "agape love" and in fact, use many Christian terms. Just as Stewart teaches that agape love is the key to regeneration, many occultists believe love is the key to initiation. They believe that initiation is regeneration:

All genuine Initiation is both evolution and REgeneration from within the self. Source: INITIATION IS SLOW GROWTH BY DEVELOPMENT AND REGENERATION

Stewart Best teaches the same thing! An inward journey to the "inner heart" (spirit man) is essential to achieve regeneration. It is very telling that the word "initiation" is derived from the Latin "In ire." This means to go within. 

We must look past Stewart's use of Christian terminology and actually scrutinize his doctrines, or teachings. God's love will not be given by a "Christ" whose description matches that of the Luciferian's "Christ": an "inner radiant essence."

The teaching that the soul and spirit must unite in order for the seeker of "truth" to become aware of "Agape Love" ( Divine Love) is an experience sought after by occultists:

When do we become aware of Divine Love and Knowledge? This occurs when the ego, the Soul and Spirit of man unite in the acceptance of the enlightening Wisdom. Quote source: THE SIX AND SEVENTH SENSES OF MAN.

Agape love is the love of God. A spirit that goes by the same description as Lucifer will not bestow the love of God upon us. We must believe the Holy Bible as straightforwardly written—rather than esoterically written—and understand that the moment the Holy Spirit enters our bodies is not discernable to us and is not supposed to be: 

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:8 

Stewart skirts the scriptures and says you definitely must be aware of the exact moment when the Holy Spirit enters your body. He teaches that you must perceive specific happenings within your spirit at the moment of regeneration. Stewart says that you will be able to hear Christ speak to you and that you will feel this "inner radiant essence" enter into your human spirit:

He then asked me, "WILL YOU (AGAPE) LOVE?" I struggled and finally said YES. It was at this instant that I felt Him enter into me. (Hard copy Dark Light--chapter 12, pg 36)

The statement above is false. the Bible is clear that being born again is when we become new creations in Christ Jesus. It is false to say that the Bible teaches that you must feel the Spirit of Christ enter into your spirit in order to be born again. We can know that we are born from above by the fruits resulting from our new life we have in Christ Jesus. The Bible says that we must examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. We are not told to examine ourselves to see if we have had the mystical experience of "union with the light" in which we perceive that a spiritual entity has entered into our spirit. (The mystical phrase, "union with the light" is used as a synonymous phrase for "union with Christ" of Dark Light—chapter 12, pg 63)

It is common for Satan's followers to feel a demon spirit actually enter their body after they have invited him in because they have learned the occult skill of achieving a conscious awareness of their human spirits.  

Christians must learn to walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. This is the true meaning of walking the narrow way. It is narrow because it is not walking like the world does (the broad way of sinfulness that leads to destruction) but is a walk after the Spirit and in which the fruit of the Spirit is evident in our lives.

Let me clarify this further. Being born-again is the same thing as being genuinely saved. When we are saved we are born of the Spirit, or quickened. When we are saved, we are given spiritual life by the the Holy Spirit by grace through faith, not by an experience clearly outlined by Stewart Best that is occult in its methodology.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:5-7

It is New Age spirituality, not Christianity, that maintains that truth must be experienced to be known.

Truth: Only that which you know and experience consciously within yourself.

(Quote source: New Age Spiritual Dictionary on Truth)


The Bible does not teach that after Christians have exercised biblical faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to save us that we must then labor and undergo a tremendous ordeal through seven steps while we wait for God to favor us with the actual moment when he will permit us to perceive this so-called rebirth happening in our spiritual body. Stewart takes salvation by faith in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ away and makes it unattainable except through an experience that necessitates that a Christian "go within" and "pierce the veil" (yes, this is what occultists call it too) so that he can become conscious of his own spiritual body
—and encounter a spirit there—that is supposedly "Christ." This is initiation—an occult experience—not the real biblical narrow way.

In closing: 

Later, we will plug in the real definition of Stewart's Strait Gate/ Narrow Way doctrine into some of his writings and you will see just how incredibly psychologically manipulative and dishonest-to-the-Bible his writings really are. You do not want union with Lucifer! Now that you know that Lucifer is the one who wants to unite with you and set you "free" his occult initiation way, you must renounce and abandon Satan's-Final-Solution-for-Christians doctrines without fear and go back to your first love—the real Lord Jesus Christ—who loves you and is not willing for you to perish through Stewart Best's pernicious use of His holy Word! 

 

Renouncing Satan's Final Solution For Christians

If the Holy Spirit has shown you that Stewart Best's Dark Light Series is definitely Satan's Final "Solution" For Christians, then please destroy the Dark Light book and everything you own that you bought from Stewart Best or that teaches his doctrines. We have his video tape, called "The Testimony" and it had demons attached to it upon arrival at my home. The hardcopy of Dark Light also had unclean spirits attached to it. I am serious and implore you to dispose of these cursed objects:

Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing. Deu 7:26

Pray to our Father in heaven and ask forgiveness for being deceived into following Stewart Best. Renounce his teachings out loud like this: 

In the name of Jesus Christ I renounce every false doctrine and every unclean spirit I have invited into my life through following  Stewart Best's doctrines of devils.

Lord Jesus, I ask you to close the spiritual place I have given to the devil, and I ask you to heal my heart, soul, and mind.
