PROMISE KEEPERS and the Men's Movement (Three Parts) By Lynn and Sarah Leslie

(1) Resurrecting Pagan Rites, Part One: The Men's Movement
Every man who attended the 1993 Promise Keepers convention in Boulder, Colorado, received a copy of The Masculine Journey: Understanding the Six Stages of Manhood by Robert Hicks. This article examines the pagan and phallic content of the book. (From the December 1995 issue of the Christian Conscience magazine.

(2) Resurrecting Pagan Rites, Part Two: The Sacred Prostitute
The revival of pagan myths and rites includes the reintroduction of the Sacred Prostitute concept for women. (From the January 1996 issue of Christian Conscience magazine.)

(3) Resurrecting Pagan Rites, Part Three: The New Gnostics
Is Promise Keepers, the rapidly growing national ecumenical men's movement, too closely associated with the revival of modern Gnosticism? (From the February 1996 issue of Christian Conscience magazine.)

PROMISE KEEPERS: The Seven False Premises - By Jack Stephens

Any movement that leads men away from their need to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ and draws men to any other means of reform, religion, or referendum is wrong, regardless of its size and strength.

PROMISE KEEPERS: A Militant Unity? By Ed Tarkowski and Sarah Leslie

Promise Keepers, a rapidly growing ecumenical men's movement, may be the best tool for those holding the Manifest Sons of God doctrines to market their beliefs to the rest of the American church. These beliefs, which are foundational to the Laughing Phenomenon associated with Rodney Howard-Browne, are now entering mainstream churches of all denominations via Promise Keepers.

Are You Really a Promise Keeper?

An open letter from Mitchell V. Casler: I attended the Boulder '93 PK Conference. I was a counselor at the conference in Denton, Texas and then attended the conference at Texas Stadium. I have been to several Leadership Seminars and rallies. I will not hesitate to say that I had a blast. But It finally became so obvious to me that there were some real contradictions to God's Word, that I just couldn't ignore it any longer.
