MIKE BREEN: 3DM LIFESHAPES AND MONASTICISM ARE DOCTRINES OF DEMONS

I have previously written on Hubpages warning about 3DM Lifeshapes and The Order of Mission (TOM). TOM was implemented at Holy Trinity Church in Leicester some time ago.

Mike Breen is a self appointed "Apostle"  and "Senior Guardian" of TOM who peddles these doctrines of demons in Jesus' name.  He has devised a system he calls 3DM whereby eight geometric shapes are used as a prism to interpret the Bible in order to create culture, create language, create vocabulary, create a culture of discipling leaders.”  Breen claims to provide “immersion experiences in the learning community.” 

3DM appeals to the flesh, but it is nothing but a cleverly devised myth (2 Peter 1/16). One definition of myth is: a belief or set of beliefs, often unproven or false, that have accrued around a person, phenomenon, or institution. http://www.thefreedictionary.com  Breen uses 3DM in conjunction with TOM which is monasticism.

For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. (2 Peter 1/16)

TOM and 3DM are experiential and extra biblical - they go beyond what is written and have fooled some so called “leaders” in the church. Breen's system is rooted in pride and is very damaging:

I have applied all these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, brothers, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up in favour of one against another. (1 Corinthians 4/6)

Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. (2 John 1/9)

Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar. (Proverbs 30/6; Revelation 22/18))

Does Mike Breen know better than God? His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence..... (2 Peter 1/3)

This people honours me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments (precepts) of men. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Corinthians 1/25)

I have received an important confirmation from a member of a church in Nebraska USA below:  

2/22/2014

Just to give you an idea of what happened in our church, Bethany Lutheran in Elkhorn, Nebraska, USA
Our pastors Mark & Wenda Fry (husband and wife) connected with Mike Breen in Arizona at a mega church there. They brought him to our church and began the indoctrination of our congregation.

First they brought in Life Shapes. Most of us didn’t get this or decided we already were participating in serving the people around us – low income, poor, hungry, etc. Then huddles were introduced, and didn’t appeal to a great deal of us but Mark & Wenda kept pushing this.

Apparently Mike Breen was fired at the church in Arizona, and his friend, Garett Robinson was not far behind. The rumor we got was that when Breen was fired, the Immigration officials were on hand but somehow he got around that. We think that the Fry’s may have helped financially in his legal battle with immigration. Then Garret Robinson came to our church, to be a “worship leader”. He took over the entire service, and the pastors did very little. The pastors pushed out our wonderful music director and put Garrett in his place. The performances of Mr. Robinson got more and more like an act. He wanted the congregation on their feet for most of the service, and encouraged kneeling. Our church has no kneelers. Mike Breen came in for a service and was trying to convince folks he was a healer, and encouraged Wenda Fry to take classes to do this. Being a Lutheran Church, people were not falling for this.

Mike Breen convinced our pastors that they shouldn’t pay people to work at the church, they should be all volunteers so that more money could go to missions (3DM as is turned out). Our children’s programs were being discontinued, services with a choir were a joke – Garrett Robinson had the music he was playing on his guitar so loud, the choir couldn’t be heard. The music in general was being played at a very loud level, where you couldn’t even hear the people giving communion even standing a foot away from them.

Garrett and Mark Fry gave one service for younger people on a Sunday evening and made the remark that this was a 3DM church, if you didn’t like it, go somewhere else.

The older people and many others were leaving our church or just not going to the point where what was a 1200 plus membership down to 600. The Fry’s had handpicked the church council so they were going along with this madness. Finally a petition was circulated and a church meeting called and the area Bishop was asked to come and accept the petition. The petition called for an election of council members, which was done and all the old were replaced. Then the Bishop oversaw meetings where synod officials and church members got together to discuss what was wrong and what needed to be done.

Finally the Fry’s left voluntarily and Garrett Robinson left also. Mr. Robinson sent the membership a scathing letter. He said in it that he had planned to train “worship leaders” in our church and he would be praying for us. It was never clear what Mr. Robinson’s credentials were, musically or religiously.

The Fry’s took 30 to 50 families with them when they left, and they seem to have lost about half of that number but are still trying to carry on Mike Breen’s message. I have checked the 3DM website every so often and it seems they are not charging the $30,000 a year to join this movement. Our church paid out $72,000 to Mr. Breen before it was stopped.

I had written letters to Immigration, the State Department and Homeland Security complaining about his “fraud”. The first time I read the oath the followers had to take to follow Mike Breen, the guardian I was sick to my stomach. As far as I was concerned it was a CULT, and there were many others of the same mind.

I appreciated your article as I agreed with what you wrote. Thank you. People need to be aware of false prophets such as these.

FALSE CHURCHES IN LEICESTER

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Galatians 1/3-5)

Following on from my recent posts about Trinity Life Church (TLC) in Leicester and the recent visit of false prophet Benny Hinn, the level of response from those who share my concerns has been encouraging. It has been suggested that some of us meet together for an exploratory forum to discuss ideas about how we should proceed, with the possibility of setting up a regular group of like-minded people. By “like minded”  I mean those who believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God and that EVERYTHING must be tested by the scriptures. My hope in facilitating this forum is that Christians will turn back to apostolic Christianity and by-pass the heresy that has infiltrated every area of the so called “church”, not least neo-Pentecostalism, Toronto, Pensacola, Benny Hinn, God TV, Charismania, deliverance ministries that focus on generational curses such as Ellel and Derek Prince, The Welsh Outpouring, Ecumenicism, Dominionism, Replacement Theology, the Purpose Driven agenda, Monasticism, the Emerging Church etc. etc. A little leaven (sin) leavens the whole lump (1 Corinthians 5/6) These type of “ministries”  have leavened (infected) the body of Christ with sin and have brought countless Christians into error and bondage rather than freedom in Christ Jesus.

They make night into day: ‘The light,’ they say, ‘is near to the darkness.’ (Job 17/12)

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5/20)

How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? (Hebrews 10/29)

....and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,

and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,
and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6/14-18)


Many are not free because they do not know the truth, they have been given a mixture of truth and error by false teachers. God hates the mixture of truth and error (Deuteronomy 21/11; 1 Thessalonians 2/3-5; 2 Peter 2/1 ) It is not God's will for His people to receive contaminated water, only the pure water of the Word i.e. the Word of God = Christ Jesus will bring God's blessings:


....that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendour, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. (Ephesians 5/26-27)

..let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10/22)

You will know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8/32)

As we get nearer and nearer to the tribulation period, I believe that God is calling His true followers to leave apostate churches. False churches and those associated with them will not be saved because they are not the bride of Christ.  The end time false church is referred to biblically as a spiritual prostitute:  And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.”  The apostate church will compromise with the Antichrist and commit spiritual adultery (Revelation 14/8; 17/5). Indeed this is well underway even now as we see TLC going along with secular equality values for lottery funding; Holy Trinity Church participating in eastern mysticism, monasticism and ecumenism; Knighton Evangelical Free Church introducing the false teachings of Bill Hybels and annihilationism. Furthermore TLC, Holy Trinity Church and All Nations Church all validate wolf in sheep's clothing Benny Hinn...... this is just the tip of the iceberg!  These things have nothing to do with Jesus Christ and true Christianity.  

For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them."
(2 Corinthians 6/16)

Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; (Revelation 18/4)

What I seek to facilitate is the worship of Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth (John 4/24). It is not just about saying that God's word is authoritative - many churches say this, but in practice they do not do it. It is actually believing this truth and testing whatever ideas we might have against scripture and submitting to God's Word in every situation, even when it is difficult. I do believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit biblically practiced and tested by the scriptures are valid. However, I am also aware that there is a danger of overemphasis on gifts that would distract from true worship and degenerate into charismania. Paul's first letter to the Corinthian Church is a warning about this.

Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith (πίστιν) on earth? (Luke 18/8)

The Greek word πίστις means faith or faithfulness. Jesus Christs question is very relevant for our own time. Will there will be true faith or faithfulness when Jesus Christ returns?

EZEKIEL 34

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy, and say to them, even to the shepherds, Thus says the Lord GOD: Ah, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat ones, but you do not feed the sheep. The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the injured you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them. So they were scattered, because there was no shepherd, and they became food for all the wild beasts. My sheep were scattered; they wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. My sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, with none to search or seek for them.

“Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: As I live, declares the Lord GOD, surely because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them.

“For thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land. And I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the ravines, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them with good pasture, and on the mountain heights of Israel shall be their grazing land. There they shall lie down in good grazing land, and on rich pasture they shall feed on the mountains of Israel. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I myself will make them lie down, declares the Lord GOD. I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them in justice.

“As for you, my flock, thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and male goats. Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture; and to drink of clear water, that you must muddy the rest of the water with your feet? And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have muddied with your feet?

“Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD to them: Behold, I, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. Because you push with side and shoulder, and thrust at all the weak with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad, I will rescue my flock; they shall no longer be a prey. And I will judge between sheep and sheep. And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. And I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I am the LORD; I have spoken.

“I will make with them a covenant of peace and banish wild beasts from the land, so that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. And the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield its increase, and they shall be secure in their land. And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I break the bars of their yoke, and deliver them from the hand of those who enslaved them. They shall no more be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beasts of the land devour them. They shall dwell securely, and none shall make them afraid. And I will provide for them renowned plantations so that they shall no more be consumed with hunger in the land, and no longer suffer the reproach of the nations. And they shall know that I am the LORD their God with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares the Lord GOD. And you are my sheep, human sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Lord GOD.”
