FAMILY" AND ITS HIJACKING OF EVANGELICALISM

Buying Evangelical Silence?
Information sometimes comes to me in the midst of my own disorganization. I knew there had been a purported evangelization meeting between New Age leaders and Evangelicals. The official line was that this was a type of missionary outreach to New Agers. Although I suspected from the beginning that deeper compromise was afoot, I would not have conclusive evidence until 2007 of the Institute of Noetic Sciences role. It was not until 2008 that I learned of the sophisticated financial underpinnings. The Unification Church seduction and purchase of much of the Christian right had been obvious many years earlier. The IONS effort was considerably more hushed. The New Agers used to refer to the internet as “the global brain.” I think they forgot that God who created the elements, matter, and our individual brains could give us the skills to use the internet. I sometimes have quipped, “did they really think we planned to communicate with tom-toms and carrier pigeons?”
I note wryly that Marilyn Ferguson may have been right when she wrote in her pro-New Age expository book, THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY that what distinguished this attempt of New Agers to spread their message was that “modern communications had encircled the world beyond any possibility of retreat.” But she and they forgot that it also enables us to figuratively say, “the British are coming, the British are coming” a la Paul Revere style with blindingly equal speed.
The internet can and is used to spread truth just as or more effectively than New Agers use it to proselytize mysticism.
My more recent discoveries came doing a chore as mundane as summertime 2007 emptying of our basement dehumidifiers. I was approaching the end of the overcluttered basement with its many shelves and stacks of books I have used as research tools over the years. I spotted Chuck Colson’s 1975 book, BORN AGAIN. Remembering his involvement with Doug Coe, I absent mindedly grabbed the book and took it to my computer room. I read portions while I was logging on to “google.com.” I read the following from his “With gratitude . . .” section on pages 344 through 346:
“Two of the men in the Fellowship, Paul Temple and Winston Weaver, made available their vacation homes (in Spain and the Virginia mountains respectively) to Patty and me when we needed a place of retreat.”
That was all I read. That was the only mention of Paul Temple in the book. I was, as most of my readers know, heavily focused on Javier Solana and the European Union. Javier Solana is from Spain. The thought ran through my head, “wonder if Paul Temple ever met Javier Solana?”
I absent mindedly googled as follows: “Douglas Coe” “Paul Temple.”
I was astounded to come up with this link to page after page material I wrote and others reprinted from my former newsletter, NEW AGE MONITOR, 19 years earlier, in 1988:

The Missing Eighteen and One Half Hour Tapes!
Gold Lake Secrecy Pact Discovered in Conversations with Doug Coe’s Secretary and Art Lindsley
"A friend who also researches and writes about the New Age Movement called me immediately after her July 8, 1988 conversations with Doug Coe’s secretary at the Fellowship Foundation (Washington Fellowship) and Art Lindsley of the C. S. Lewis Institute about the Gold Lake event. She made extensive notes of her conversations with Dr. Gordon Lewis (Denver Seminary); Molly, Doug Coe’s secretary at the Fellowship Foundation; and Dr. Art Lindsley (Spiritual Counterfeits Project and the C. S. Lewis Institute, Washington, D.C.) She shared her copious notes with me. We learned that the Gold Lake event was a “retreat” sponsored by “Christians” for New Age leaders. The events were chummy to the extent of featuring such popular trust-building exercises (popular in New Age circles) as Christians running obstacle races with New Agers. Molly told our friend that the events consisted mainly of group activities. Molly also told our friend that Art Lindsley was the person who knew about the tapes. This was the culmination of many months of our trying frustratingly to gather information on Gold Lake and being able to eke out only small tidbits from New Agers such as David Spangler and Fritz Hull bragging about the events. The following story will describe what we have been able to learn to date. “Dynamic Links” are the newest concept in software. It appears that there are all too many “dynamic links” between Christians and the globalist-occult community. Are they witnessing/ Or much more likely, are they networking? You be the judge!
"Barbara Marx Hubbard’s most successful “Harmonic Convergence” did not take place on August 16-17, 1987. Nor was it the Soviet-American dialogues. Instead, her most successful blending of what she calls “resonating core groups” was held in Boulder, Colorado October 24 through 26, 1987. She started at a conference called “Christianity and the New Age” sponsored by Doug Coe’s Fellowship Foundation, Inc. (more commonly known as “The Washington Fellowship,” or “The Fellowship”), The C. S. Lewis Institute, Spiritual Counterfeits Project and other ‘Christian” organizations. The event seems to strongly smack of Evangelical Ministry to New Religions (EMNR’s) imprinting – in fact, many EMNR principals such as J. Vernon Grounds and Gordon Lewis were involved.
"Our information for this story was culled from many sources. We learned by listening to tapes of New Agers, by asking New Agers such as Marilyn Ferguson, by other Christians calling “Christians” who were there and passing on the little information they received to us. The most important thing we learned was that the Christians there made a pact with the New Agers not to reveal information about the retreat. The 'Christians' obviously kept their word better than the New Agers. In fact, the very day the conference ended, David Spangler spoke at an Episcopal Church in Boulder, bragging about the success of the event. If the New Agers were less than reticent about talking about the event than the Christians, perhaps it was because the New Agers had less to hide!
Another article on the same website included a copy of an invitation to the event. You may view it in context by clicking here and scrolling down as needed on the article:
Stanford CA, 94025
"We are writing to invite you to join us for the gathering we are hosting at Gold Lake on October 24-27, entitled “Bridging Through Christ.” The conference will be held at Gold Lake Ranch, an executive retreat conference center, educational foundation, and community initiative located in the mountains outside Boulder, Colorado.
"We plan to meet in dialogue and prayer, with our daily roles and titles, to form deep personal bonds that will last beyond this weekend. We hope to come out of this meeting with a clearer sense of direction and set a course for further contact and dialogue. The meeting will be structured so that it can change according to the needs and interests of the group. We have asked two close friends, Barbara Marx Hubbard and Doug Coe to serve as co-hosts for this event, as well as Robin’s parents, Paul and Diane Temple. All of them are deeply dedicated and have each, in their own way, become powerful catalysts for bringing people around the globe together in the Spirit of Christ. More about them is enclosed. We are planning to limit the participants to about 30 lay people in order to create the opportunity for deeper communication and sharing.
We are eagerly looking forward to being with you at Gold Lake in October and getting to know you in person. Enclosed is the logistics sheet and registration form which we would appreciate you filling out and returning it as soon as possible.

The information and its ramifications would continue to haunt me. Googling more and discovering Paul Temple’s pivotal role in both the Prayer Breakfast Network and the powerful New Age Institute of Noetic Sciences disturbed me more. From time to time I would google “Paul N. Temple” and learn progressively more of his business ventures which included a holding company named Shambhala, the mythical residence of the “Tibetan Masters” a la Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Helena Roehrich, and Alice Ann Bailey.
A few weeks ago, I made another pivotal on line discovery. I did a routine search for “Paul N. Temple” and googled it together with the term, “noetic.” This search yielded a “Three Swallows Foundation.” Reading on line reporter summaries, I learned that recipients had included groups as diverse as Arthur Blessit Ministries, All Seasons Chalice Church, and Montessori and Steiner schools. Large amounts of money had gone to the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Much larger amounts of money had gone to something called “International Foundation” of Washington, D.C.
International Foundation? Online Star encapsulated foundation information gave a link to an Oklahoma organization,
4809 S GUM AVE
BROKEN ARROW, OK 74011
Clicking on its required 990 report, this is what I found:
Obviously, this modest Oklahoma missionary group could not have been the recipient of the amounts of moneys indicated had been distributed by the Three Swallows Foundation. I googled “International Foundation” and came up with nothing that led me to what it had really funded. I then had an idea. I went to Three Swallows Foundation’s 990 reports. I read the reports to the very bottom and found an entry for “International Foundation.” It had an address: 133 C Street, SE. Washington, DC 20003. I googled that address.
Bingo! Here is what I found:
Douglas E. Coe
133 C Street, SE
Suddenly, I had much deeper understanding of why Evangelical organizations I had presumed would be equally interested in knowledge of New Age hostile ones had so frantically tried to stop my work. The motive was in no small part money. Paul N. Temple (and perhaps others) was funding both sides – New Age and “Christian.”
Totaling Paul Temple’s Three Swallows Foundation donations as shown in its 990 forms between 1998 and 2007, I would learn that nearly $1.7 million had been donated to “The International Foundation” and various smaller amounts to groups as diverse as Arthur Blessit Ministries and Campus Crusade for Christ. Nearly $700,000 had gone to his own Institute of Noetic Sciences. The Gold Lake conference had been convened by Paul Temple’s own children: clearly not to “Bridge” to Jesus Christ, but to bridge to their New Age “Christ."
Silence had been purchased at no small cost in dollars to Paul N. Temple and in souls lost to Evangelicals. Legitimate opposition to the hostile anti-Christian New Age Movement had been marginalized to protect Paul Temple’s investment. Those not bought off by Paul Temple were bought off with even greater investments from the Moonies. For part one click below.
