Many people are concerned with the direction evangelist Greg Laurie is taking the church, and rightly so, as you will see in Lighthouse Trails’ report:
Lighthouse Trails reader sent this photo (see below) to us today. It is a picture of Calvary Chapel pastor Greg Laurie, standing with Roma Downey and Mark Burnett and was posted on Greg Laurie’s Facebook page along with this caption by Downey:
So nice spending time with friends. Mark and I had a lovely lunch today with Greg and Cathe Laurie #harvestoc
Such a photo only heightens concerns as to the direction Greg Laurie (one of Calvary Chapel’s most popular pastors) is taking the church.
In 2012, Chris Lawson (a former Calvary Chapel pastor, now a Lighthouse Trails author) wrote a report about a book titled Have Heart (which is the story of pastor Steve Berger and communication with his deceased son). Even though the book encouraged necromancy, it was endorsed by Greg Laurie.
In author Greg Reid’s booklet, Confused by an Angel: The Dilemma of Roma Downey’s New Age Beliefs, he documents that Roma Downey is aligned with the New Age. That, though, has not deterred Christian leaders, such as David Jeremiah and now Greg Laurie, from showing comradeship with Downey and Burnett.

Greg Laurie frequently misinterprets Scripture. He is either too lazy or has gotten so self focused he no longer studies God’s word but just uses it as props.
People like Greg Laurie and Roma Downey love recognition. Beware of people like these wanna be Christian stars. Don’t trust any of them. They are part of the One World Religion promoted by non other than the false prophet as spoken of in the Book of Revelation. If you rebuke them, they will turn on you like ferocious wolves.
This just in….self-proclaiming Jewish Messiah drank water with a Samaritan woman in the well at the center of town – a sketch of their conversation has been drawn!! Shame on Jesus!
Really? This is newsworthy or discerning? It sounds exactly like the spirit of the men who slandered Jesus for who he kept company with.
Thank you! That is exactly what I was thinking. We do need to be careful and we need to know the word for ourselves so not to be deceived and yet Jesus came to show us how to live.
Please lets stop dividing & believing the worst….Pray for the ones who have and are losing their way and love them until they come back. I will most likely never have a conversation with Roma Downey but I know my God can!!
