So, for those who don’t know Ron Luce-- he’s the head of Teen Mania Ministries and he’s also coordinator of Acquire the Fire and BattleCry Campaign.
I remember I used to go to a church which promoted the hell out of his BC Campaign, and I was so caught up in it, that I blindly followed it like I was taking a long walk on a short cliff.
And when I went to the actual BattleCry Campaign event, I remember I was originally pumped up for this event…until I heard about the message that I was getting myself involved with…basically Mr. Luce was talking about how if you’re apart of it, live it, listen to it, like it, etc.-- you’re a follower of culture. In other words, he was deducting that anybody whose caught up in the mainstream world of culture, and not Christian, that automatically makes you the enemy.
Months later after that event…I was completely baffled and went ‘Are you freaking kidding me???’ That feeling was there when I first heard it, but I couldn’t believe that he would actually preach that to kids.
And what was so strangely ironic is that while he preaches this kind of philosophy, that it’s completely ignorant of what the Apostle Paul preached about when he was debating with the pagans-- he was very into the culture and counteracted it to prove a point about his Christian faith that he was spreading.
I knew that I could no longer become apart of this movement, and resigned. And last year, I discovered this website about other people who were involved with Ron Luce’s pseudo ministry, and regretted it since then.
Anyway, has anybody else here ever come in contact with any BattleCry Event or Teen Mania sect? I feel it’s become a cult in it’s own right.
