Mark T. Barclay: Pastor, Prophet…Pervert Part II by Ken Mattson

“Salvation by grace is evidenced by holy conduct: unless our lives are characterised by “good works” we have no warrant to regard ourselves as being the Children of God.”  A.W. Pink

handcuffsThere is nothing worse than hearing on the news of another minister caught in some sort of sexual sin—it not only hurts the local congregation and minister’s family, but it brings reproach to the name of Christ. Even worse it’s when the sexual sin is perverse and committed against young boys and youth group girls as in the case with the prophet Mark T. Barclay.  (His perverted boasting can be found here on youtube.)

Moreover, most ministers, youth pastors, deacons would have been fired for what Mark T. Barclay brazenly did(breaking into children’s Facebook and social media accounts and looking at their private photos, which were inappropriate and un-bloused)but he was never fired. What becomes evident is the huge underpinning of biblical integrity found in the Christian church is missing in Mark T. Barclay Ministries, even when he hypocritically calls himself a preacher of righteousness.

Under United States law, looking at unclothed young boys and girls is Child Pornography, not only that, but the peeping Tom-Mark T. Barclay also illegally accessed their social media accounts using some sort of hacking site or tool, which is also a crime.

The bottomline is that gross sin among ministers like the pervert Mark T. Barclay is a signal that something is seriously gone awry in his ministry—but an even greater problem is the lowering of standards done by his followers and ministers connected with him to accommodate Barclay’s sexual sin, because he should have been removed from ministry.

If casual Christians can lower the expectations on their leadership, they will be much more comfortable with their own sin. With lower moral standards, the church becomes more tolerant of sin and less tolerant of holiness. The “sinner-friendly” church is intolerable to God — that is a frightening condition.”  John Macarthur

Barclay’s Trinitarian heresies is the cause for his moral corruption

“Theological corruption is always prior to and explains moral corruption.“ -Albert Mohler

Mark T. Barclay has wickedly and repeatedly taught that God the Trinity is not actual 520px-Shield-Trinity-Scutum-Fidei-English.svgpersons as Christianity teaches, but has taught(as did the heretical Gnostics), that God is composed of parts and is a three-part being.[1]

Historically, if you add it up—Mark T. Barclay has taught at least three of the most destructive errors on the Trinity and the Person of Jesus Christ known to the Christian church—which in effect causes his church and ministry to be outside of Authentic Christianity, like other cults and false religions.

Moreover, Mark T. Barclay’s lack of godliness in the area of personal holiness is caused by theological corruption. As I wrote before, one can’t have good fruit without the Trinity—it’s just impossible Scripture and history shows us this to be true….

“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.” John 15:4

Further, Barclay should have been held accountable to higher standards of Scriptural integrity as a minister by his elders and his congregation, but that was never done and the voices outside his ministry that called him to truly repent from his major heresies on the Trinity weren’t heeded either.

There were others as myself, but there were no paid minister that I personally know of that publicly told him to repent for his error on the nature of God(The Trinity) within his circles in Michigan and this exemplifies the moral and theological weakness of the American church and this is why his horrible errors were allowed to spread as gangrene.

Thus while godliness was held to be synonymous with belief and truth, ungodliness was held to be synonymous with unbelief and error. This was the pattern for the Church’s struggle with heresy for the next three hundred years.”  The Trinitarian Faith by Thomas F. Torrance [2], [3], [4]

Mark T. Barclay’s Obsession with Voyeurism: Protect your young girls and boys

boys-1149665_1280More can be said here, but children need to be protected from Mark T. Barclay and his ministry– who will do anything that he asked without question(he has unquestionable authority), because they have given him a blank check to do anything he wants and it’s obvious that your young sons and daughters aren’t off limits to him.

My question on youtube was—why would he want to even look?

Frankly, this has been the case with Mark T. Barclay—which might even signal a mental or sexual disorder. His unhealthy obsession with voyeurism(which he calls ministry)into the lives of his followers over the years has been detailed in his books and sermons. But now it’s grown worse, because it’s become(brazenly)sexually perverted and he doesn’t even think there is nothing wrong with it—to the point of publicly boasting about it. Its become insidious!

Mark T. Barclay’s theological and sexual Perversions

Is Trinitarian heresy wrong as Barclay has repeatedly taught? Yes, it’s the result of apostasy(apostasy is a rebellion against God, because it’s a rebellion against the truth)—even having a wrong opinion on the nature of God is wrong and heresy on the Trinity or Christ will lead to the everlasting fire of eternal judgement, because it’s another gospel.

Is spreading Trinitarian heresy wrong as Barclay has done? Yes, God hates heresy, because it’s not the truth and it’s spreading another gospel.

Is breaking into someone’s Facebook wrong as Barclay describes he did? Yes, it’s a serious crime and called identity theft and criminal—holds a felony.

Is being a peeing Tom and peeping at young un-blouse and indecently clothed youth aged girls and boys wrong a Barclay details he did? Yes, it’s called Child pornography and everyone knows it’s a gross sin and crime against children and most pastors, youth pastors, elders would have been fired.

This is what the prophet Mark T. Barclay has pervertedly done without restraints in the name of his ministry….

“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21

Barclay should be fired, prosecuted and put on the Sex Offender list

stop-1131143_1280A few years ago, after listening and watching Mark T. Barclay preach heretically on the Trinity and the Person of Jesus Christ—I wrote and recommended that he should take a break from ministry and get help for his doctrinal errors—well, that never happened.

The people around him that were supposed to be leaders didn’t understand the gravity of what was happening—I believe they thought that doctrine and theology were abstract to the Christian life, which it isn’t in anyway. On the contrary though, doctrine and life go hand in hand as Scripture teaches and any corruption in doctrine as the case with Mark T. Barclay is always a forehand to moral corruption.

“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.”  Ephesians 5:1-3

Notes:

1.  Contrary to Mark T. Barclay and other cultic perversions of Scripture. The the doctrine of the Trinity is a Christian essential, bearing witness to the ontological reality of the one true God in three divine persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of the same substance and perfections.

2. “As ‘man of God and a mighty trumpet of truth’ Athanasius’ both happily preserved the unity which belongs to the Godhead, and devoutly taught the Trinity which consists in personal relations, neither confounding the three Persons in the Unity, nor dividing the being among the three Persons, but remaining within the bounds of piety by avoiding excessive inclination or opposition to either side.”  The Trinitarian Faith by Thomas F. Torrance

3. “An outstanding mark of the Nicene approach was its association of faith with ‘piety’ or ‘godliness’ , that is, with a mode of worship, behaviour and thought that was devout and worthy of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This was a distinctively Christian way of life in which the seal of the Holy Trinity was indelibly stamped upon the mind of the Church. Godliness and theology, worship and faith, went inseparably together, with constant attention given to reverent interpretation of the Holy Scriptures, reverent use of the reason, and reverent ways of argument, in which there was no intrusion into the mystery of God or irreverent teaching about him.”  The Trinitarian Faith by Thomas F. Torrance

4. “An error in the doctrine of God will have inevitable consequences in the sphere of action, of moral behaviour, of the polity of the Church, and of basic culture and social organization. A change in the doctrine of the Trinity in either of these directions cannot help but have political consequences.” Joseph P. Farrell

Mark T. Barclay Ministries cultI am working on another new video. I posted the trailer on Barclay’s public Facebook page, but he took it off for some reason. I guess, he didn’t like it, but Barclay’s son liked it on Youtube.

Barclay’s TV productions aren’t that professional anyways, with all of Barclay’s followers investments, they are only a single step up from Amazing Grace church productions, and that’s not saying much!  I’ve seen the best in churches at Hillsong in Australia, been taught by better and have a better foundation in both editing and photography. With that said, Amazing Grace Church could do much better with recording with a single iPhone without an external mic and using iMovie to edit, than the rubbish they are using to record sound and video now. The stuff they used in 2000 was even absolute junk then!

I know this personally, because I worked with Amazing Grace Church’s production team for sometime early 2000 to 2005. I finally had to leave, because they blatantly refused to listen to any professional suggestions that really worked. I was sad, because I thought that I could have helped them a lot. But within a few years I was traveling around the globe and was accepted in an art school, acting in commercials and got my degree in film from a university in the U.K.

One of my editing instructor in film school who taught me, one of his students went on and edited all LOTR and Hobbits and my other teacher is in Hollywood now and I could name countless films edited by her. On top of that, I’ve worked with other professionals, like stunt coordinators from the Hong kong, China and Hollywood movie industry. This is just who I am and my background and if I really want to turn up the heat on these productions I can. For now it’s just using my iMac.  Ken

Here is a new video that I made and will put it up other places soon and hopefully before Barclay tries suppressing the truth like other Trinitarian heretics.

It’s called Mark T. Barclay: Heresy on the Trinity.

Here is an alternative link. 

Mark T. Barclay: A different Trinity, a three-part being, by Ken Mattson

The Great Deacon Athanasius

The Great Deacon Athanasius

 With many applauses from his congregation in his heretical sermons on the Doctrine of the Trinity. The trinitarian heretic Mark T. Barclay  proclaims that the “great god”……he serves is a “three part being!”

“We call him Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. You are made after the image of God. You are a spirit…you have a soul…you live in a body. God’s a three-part being. Humans were created by God in Eden as a three-part being.” Mark T. Barclay-The names of God part two.

So is the Trinity a three-part being as Mark T. Barclay teaches and believes in? NO! This is cultic, being absolutely heretical and not only that, but a blasphemous heresy on the Orthodox Doctrine of the Trinity!

By teaching that the Trinity is a three part being and not distinct Persons. The false prophet Mark T. Barclay is teaching a destructive heresy. Thus, Barclay’s god is drastically different from the Triune and personal God of the true Christian Church.

 Furthermore, like the Jehovah Witnesses who are the modern Arians, and who also heretically named God after his works as Creator. Mark T. Barclay names God as Creator, instead of the proper and Scriptural name as the eternal Father of the Lord Jesus. And greatly furthers the Arian heresy by teaching that God was not always called Father from eternity, but that there was change in God’s name for the sake of creation’s understanding.

 In other words, Mark T. Barclay continues the Arian heresy by naming God’s name as Creator and not the eternal Father, but teaches that there was change in God. Thus, clearly, Mark T. Barclay’s god is drastically different than the God of Christianity. Because the God of Christianity is one God being indivisible and Triune in three distinct Persons, and doesn’t change.

“Far removed is the Father of all from those things which operate among men, the affections and passions. He is simple, not composed of parts, without structure, altogether like and equal to himself alone. He is all mind, all spirit, all thought, all intelligence, all reason . . . all light, all fountain of every good..” Irenaeus, Against Heresies 2:13:3 [A.D. 189].

 In his newer book on the Trinity. Michael Reeves writes:

 “In Fact, we should not even set out in our understanding of God by thinking of God primarily as Creator(naming him “from” his works only)-that, as we have seen, would make him dependent on his creation.” Michael Reeves- Delighting in the Trinity.

 That quote was in reference to Saint Athanasius to his brilliant life long defence of the Doctrine of the Trinity against the Arians. But I’d like to add more and that it’s not only in regards to God’s name. As Saint Athanasius went on to say further that by naming God from his works as Creator did indeed warped and destroyed the true Christian God’s own identity as the eternal Father. Thus making a different god than from Scripture as the heretic Mark T. Barclay and the Arians blasphemous do in their shared teachings on the Godhead.

 “Therefore it is more pious and more accurate to signify God from the Son and call Him Father, than to name Him from His works.” Church Father-Saint Athanasius, Discourses Against the Arians: Discourse 1, Chapter 9:34

 I believe in one God, the Father Almighty.”  The Nicene Creed http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/creeds/nicene.htm

Thus, Mark T. Barclay is not only heretically wrong in one way by evilly teaching that God is a three-part being and not Persons. He is also heretically wrong in other ways by furthering the Arian heresy by teaching that the Father wasn’t Father,  but was Creator and that there was changed in God.

As I already told Richard Jolliff and Chuck Seeley about Mark T. Barclay. Men who by the way, are both anti-denominational and basic doctrinal stupids in their own right! I told both of them, that in Mark T. Barclay’s teaching on the Trinity. There are at least three evil heresies the Christian church has already condemned. Thus, Mark T. Barclay not only heretically denies the Orthodox doctrine of the Trinity, but he is worshipping a different god who is a trinity of parts and not distinct eternal Persons as Scripture clearly teaches.

Furthermore, men like Chuck Seeley and Mark T. Barclay can’t look to the Orthodoxy of the Church on such important doctrines as the Trinity or the Orthodox doctrine of the Person of Jesus Christ and Original Sin(Pelagius). Why? Because once they do, they are indicted as heretics for their evil heresies! Not only by Scripture, but indicted in time and space by the Church Fathers through the Orthodoxy on which the true Christian church stands.

Rick Renner, quoting A. W. Tozer, who was one of the most balanced theologians of modern times. Renner quotes:

“The apostles not only taught truth but contended for its purity against any who would corrupt it. The Pauline epistles resist every effort of false teachers to introduce doctrinal vagaries. John’s epistles are sharp with condemnation of those teachers who harassed the young church by denying the incarnation and throwing doubts upon the doctrine of the Trinity; and Jude in his brief but powerful epistle rises to heights of burning eloquence as he pours scorn upon evil teachers who would mislead the saints.”

So, does Mark T. Barclay believe in the Orthodox doctrine of the Trinity, which is held by the true Church? Absolutely not! But if you believe that he does, then you are as stupid and very much deceived as the Galatians! Because Barclay’s own teachings heretically deny such Orthodox belief. No paper thin Statement of Beliefs on the internet can cover up what he already teaches.

Anyone can lie and say they believe in something, and not practice it! Or in Barclay’s case, falsely say that he believes in the Trinity by a posted Statement of Beliefs. Yet, then goes about and destroys such Orthodox beliefs on the Trinity and teachings on the eternal Person of Jesus Christ through evil heresies.

So in summery, Mark T. Barclay’s teaching on the Trinity is heresy and compounded with heresies and the obvious ones are Arianism and Sabellianism. Mark’s own conception of God is irrefutably Arian in nature and his evil denial of actual Persons in the Godhead is Sabellianism.

Isn’t it ironic that the most celebrated defender of the Trinity, Saint Athanasius who is the Father of Orthodoxy. Would address the so called Bible-man himself Mark T. Barclay on the pages of Athanasius own writings against the Arians? And not only in the writings against the Arians, but Athanasius also addresses Barclay in his writings to the First Council of Nicaea on the Trinity. He not only address Barclay, but directly refutes Mark T. Barclay’s evil teachings.

It’s not only ironic, but it’s very prophetic . It must be quite unnerving to be in Barclay’s shoes and find himself and his teaching on the Trinity being refuted and condemned word by word, by the great Athanasius, which happened more than seventeen centuries ago. When the Orthodox Doctrine of the Trinity was put forth at Nicaea to combat the Arian heresy.

Thus, the status and legacy of Mark T. Barclay in light of Scripture and the Church’s Orthodoxy is that he is a heretic and self-condemned by his own evil teachings on the Godhead and the Person of Christ and this is irrefutable.

As Walter Martin used to say in regards to false doctrine: “Does anyone get excited in the presents of evil anymore?”

“In Genesis Chapter. 1, it defines the Trinity of God, the three parts of God. You are made by the way after his image, three parts. There was a Creator, he was later called Jehovah. There was his word, later on when he come here God said you call this baby, not the Word, but Jesus which really means Yahshua….and then of course the bible talks about the Spirit of God……now these aren’t three different people. We teach them sorta, kinda almost as three different people for the sake of teaching. Now that Creator, Word and Spirit for the sake of man understanding and relating was changed by God, you can read it in the Scriptures, I know you know this, forgive me this so elementary. But it was changed to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” Mark T. Barclay, Jesus the command giver

In complete denial of the “Persons” of the Trinity. Barclay goes on and further mixes up who the members of the Trinity are. This is not isolated, because the ramifications of  this destructive heresy continues to manifest in the leadership’s prayers from the teaching pulpit. Where they mix up the names and roles of the eternal Persons of the Trinity.

“Those that permit the Holy Spirit to be their Father. Those who will allow the Holy Spirit, remember he’s not a third Person, he is God made up of three parts just like…my son Josh and his soul is not somebody else and his spirit is not someone else, and so I got to decipher…Now there’s not three people, it’s just one Josh three parts. There’s not three Gods, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, he’s just one. He’s just got three parts. So this great Holy Spirit wants to father you.” Jesus, the Command Giver – Mark T. Barclay

America knew that former President Bill Clinton committed adultery because all the facts pointed to that even when he publicly denied it in the first place. We know that Mark T. Barclay has taught the worst heresy on the Trinity and the Person of Christ by what he has taught and now is lying that he did otherwise. If a person will lie about God who is Trinity, than they are capable of lying about anything. The facts point to his apostasy from his heresy and now Barclay is publicly lying that he did otherwise.

Mark T. Barclay and Ed Dufresne: Scandal, Incestuous Fornication and Legacy. Written by Ken Mattson

*RELATED POST 2017: Mark T. Barclay: Pastor, Prophet….Pervert

“The grueling details became abundantly clear. My dad had stolen my brother’s wife, even hiring and paying for a divorce attorney for her, and now he is trying to steal his daughter! On January 7th, 2010 our dad married Lorena Matthews, in a ceremony performed by his so called ‘spiritual father’, Ed Dufresne, who saw no issue with the union. I guess he forgot to read Leviticus 18 or 1 Corinthians 5!”

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 2.26.19 PMWho is Ed Dufresne? Well, basically he was a very close friend to Mark T. Barclay and a troubled Word of Faith minister, who recently died a horrible death much like the evil heretic Arius.

It was reported last week that so called prophet Ed Dufresne plane exploded in the sky after a climb of more than 10 thousand feet and plane parts were strung out for more then a mile and from the gruesome report–it also seems body parts were also found in the scattered wreckage.

Way back in the middle to late 1990’s and 2000’s I attended a few of Mr. Defresne meetings while I lived in the United States. It wasn’t exactly like being in a Kenneth E. Hagin Sr service–which I also attended when I visited Rhema Bible College earlier that decade–but it was on a similar level, because Defresne was one of Hagin’s copy cats.

One of the main emphasis in all of Ed Defresne ministry teachings was his anti-denominational beliefs, which clearly was the basis of a lot of his false teachings and it’s interesting to note that his calling was based on voices and personal visions that he said were from Jesus.

While Defresne preaching would be considered pretty good in Word-faith circles. Much of it was out of personal experience and not based on Scripture alone nor to my knowledge was is preaching exegetical enough to call it true biblical teaching.

In other words, the majority of his teachings stemmed from Word-faith and clerical ideas supported and lines up exactly to what is being practiced and preached in other Charismatic offshoots today. Such as in many of the Shepherding and Third Wave movements.

In recent years, prophet Ed Dufresne conducted an disgusting act of the incestuous marriage to his long time son in the faith Doctor and

Reverend Bill Matthews of Solid Rock Church in Elk River, Minnesota to Matthew’s own daughter-in-law.

From what I understand, the Reverends’ wife was sick and dying while he was carrying out an affair with his own son’s wife in another room. All along while the good son was away serving the country in the military.

I can hardly imagine such an heinous act being done like this… As in Christian leader as doing incestuous fornication! That this father should have and take his own son’s wife, which is his daughter in law! And beyond that the absolute the depraved sick conduct of Mr. Ed Dufresne’s part in bringing the two incest couple together in a covenant union.

This depraved conduct is beyond words…. But then again we have Mark T. Barclay who was Defresne close buddy preaching something much more heinously sick and more evil in the Church with his heretical teaching on the Doctrine of the Trinity!

This depraved conduct is beyond words…. But then again we have Mark T. Barclay who was Defresne close buddy preaching something much more heinously sick and more evil in the Church with his heretical teaching on the Doctrine of the Trinity! By the wayTrinitarian heresy, like incestuous fornication, destroys the temple of God!

So right after his wife’s death and his son’s divorce prophet Ed Dufresne and long time close ministry friend of Mark T. Barclay conducted the scandalous incest union between Reverend Bill Matthews and his daughter-in-law.

Incest defined

Incest is sexual activity between family members and close relatives. This may include sexual activity between people in a consangueous relationship (blood relations), or related by affinity, such as members of the same household, step relatives, those related by adoption or marriage, or members of the same clan or lineage.     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incest

1. Sexual relations between persons who are so closely related that their marriage is illegal or forbidden by custom. 2. The statutory crime of sexual relations with such a near relative.    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/incest

It should be noted that the incestuous marriage, even as of recently before Defresne death. That prophet Dufresne preached at Reverend Matthew’s church multiple times and this comes after Defresne did under Barclay’s friendship this sinful and heinous act in marrying the couple.

“Here I also want to add that just because this pastor got married to his daughter in law. That this doesn’t mean that the sin of incest is cleared, because they are married now. But the fact is, that he is living in incest even after the marriage…” Ken Mattson

Here I also want to add that just because this pastor got married to his daughter in law. That this doesn’t mean that the sin of incest is cleared, because they are married now. But the fact is, that he is living in incest even after the marriage.

Moreover, it’s not just incest which is shameful in itself that he is living in, but it’s compounded and more deprave being Incestuous Fornication. So, if you are one of Barclay’s and Defresnes connected leaders and thinking that this pastor is already cleared of sin like Mark T. Barclay, because he is married. Well, then you are completely wrong, because biblically he is not!

Beyond that, this is a matter of his sin and Matthew’s incestuous sin that Ed Defresne should have dealt with after marry the incest couple. Then condone and cover his actions someway like Mark T. Barclay Ministries did both morally and theologically in regards to Defresnse friendship and conduct is radically sinful, because Scripture doesn’t condone such sick sin, which he committed himself as a minster and a so called prophet.

But then again there are others who were notified about his shame in Mark T. Barclay’s Righteous Preachers Network like Mac Hammond who did nothing to stop this shameful actions of so called prophet Ed Defresne!

In regarding the incidence of incest in the Corinthian Church, Pentecostal theologian Gordon Fee writes in his commentary:

“The problem, however, is not simply a relaxed attitude toward sin, but whether they also tried to give a theological basis for it and thereby to condone it.”

Pentecostal and New Testament theologian Gordon D. Fee. The Case of the Incestuous Man. Page 197, Commentary on First Corinthians.

“…but had his father been dead, and he, after his decease, married to her, it had been incest still, but neither fornication nor adultery in the strictest sense. But to marry her, or keep her as a concubine, while his father was alive, though he had repudiated her, or she had deserted him, whether she were his own mother or not, was incestuous fornicationMatthew Henry on First Corinthians.

But in contrary to biblical holiness and morality, Mark T. Barclay has this to say this on Ed Dufrasne his long time ministry buddy who recently conducted the marriage that resulted in this unthinkably incestuous fornication sin:

“Another great earth warrior and champion, Dr. Ed Dufresne, has entered Heaven to fellowship that much closer with the Jesus he loved so much and to wander there with great glee and joy in the place he preached about so often. He’s now fellowshipping with one of his favorite men of God, Dr. Kenneth Hagin….Over the years, Brother Dufresne and I have ministered together in many, many conferences and outpouring meetings. I know he will be rewarded in Heaven and, of course, extremely missed here on earth.”

Really Barclay? You make your friendship with Ed’s sickness sound so flowery. Why is he Ed not fellowshipping with the Apostle Paul who part of the true Church and inspired by the Holy Spirit wrote against Defresne’s sin of marrying this couple?

Your close buddy is a champion…..of incest and fornication? And Barclay presumptuously calls himself a preacher of righteousness! But yet refused to do anything about his ministry buddy who conducted this heinous act of marrying this incestuous couple and not only a couple, but Christian leaders.

False prophet and heretic pastor Mark T. Barclay like all other heretics is a great liar like his father the devil, who was a liar from the beginning and like Barclay there is no truth in the devil! Mark T. Barclay’s preaching on morality is paper thin and we can see this and it’s only to draw people to himself for money and followers.

If this wasn’t so, then Barclay would have dealt with Ed Dufresne and others in heinous sin that his close friends commit on a national level. This is the same thing when Mark T. Barclay comes to the pulpit and says that he believes in the Trinity, but then denies such orthodoxy with his evil heresy. This is because he is a liar and walking in great darkness, which the Christian Church has condemned.

Mark T. Barclay: Accusations by way of Ad Hominem, by Ken Mattson

Ad hominem

1. appealing to one’s prejudices, emotions, or special interests rather than to one’s intellect or reason.

2. attacking an opponent’s character rather than answering his argument.

Definition from dictionary.com

I have been meaning to address this this accusation for a while. I even wanted to do a podcast for this one, but I never got around in having enough time and my 2010 Macbook decided to finally quit. So, I was left to do blogging for the last 8 months on Windows until I received my new Macbook a few weeks ago.

Do I hate Mark T. Barclay? 

For one, I think this is a stupid question, but then again in the mind of his followers, it may be a legible one.

Though on the contrary, I certainly don’t do this blog out of hate for anyone and not even hate for false prophet as Mark T. Barclay or even other cults like the Latter Day Saints. But I blog out of the commandment to contend for the faith.

“Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.” Jude 1:3

One of the questions that I’ve personally had and it’s been a rhetorical one so far is why hasn’t anyone else said anything about Barclay’s heretical teaching on the Orthodox Doctrine on the Trinity?

Even though that question has been rhetorical, from what I’ve seen in reality is that most Christians who know better, would rather Facebook about American right wing politics, than do any kind of apologetic work that would overtime help the Church in Mid-Michigan and further in the United States.

When I first wrote about the Captivity of Amazing Grace Church, I wrote this:

“Just as a donkey spoke to the false prophet Balaam, so to do donkeys speak to Mark T. Barclay today, but these donkeys are only analogous to the dumbness of the animal. The donkeys I am referring to are the men who I have mentioned before in Barclay’s own Preacher of Righteousness Network. These men are theological anorexics who flatter Barclay even as he is in deep error.”

While I still think that statement is true. I think it’s even worse, because of the radical acceptance of heresy that runs across the board in regards to the prophet ministry of Mark T. Barclay.

Helps Ministry

Helps Ministry

These men who have been trained by Mark T. Barclay are absolute stupids in Pauline terms! For many of the men can’t think theologically beyond cleaning toilets in the help’s ministry at Barclay’s own church….(Yes, they are theologically dumb as the back side of Balaam’s donkey!)

So the reality is when this blog wrote with concise examples about how Mark T. Barclay by his own evil has not only categorically denied the Trinity, but has taught heretically on this central doctrine. These men have the extreme audacity to come back and say that he has done differently. Well, it’s an astonishing show of their absolute ignorance of basic Biblical Christianity….!

“We call him Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. You are made after the image of God. You are a spirit…you have a soul…you live in a body. God’s a three-part being. Humans were created by God in Eden as a three-part being.” Mark T. Barclay-The names of God part two.

These men show knowing more about Mark T. Barclay’s ‘neat’ sock drawer, than Christian doctrine!(And they have the nerve to called that bible college). I mean, for Pete’s sake, when was having a tidy sock drawer an character of a man of God? I thought it was sound doctrine! Well, Gandhi, probably had a perfect sock drawer, if he even wore socks that is…..lol

But on a more serious note, this coincides with one recent poll reported that atheist and agnostics know more about the Bible and Christian doctrine much better than Evangelicals. Mormons and Jewish believers came in second place. From the standpoint of this blog and from my interaction with Mark T. Barclay Preacher of Righteousness network leaders. I’d say the ignorance is even worse with men who are under Barclay’s leadership.

For example in Mark T. Barclay’s Minister of Righteousness Network, we can see this from the teachings of Chuck Seeley, who also is a Mayor of Breckenridge, Michigan. Not only is he a mayor, but he is also the worship leader at Amazing Grace Church.

I used Charlie, because his views reflect the great evil by way of false teachings that have come out of Amazing Grace Church in Wheeler, Michigan, which is under Mark T. Barclay’s leadership. For Chuck Seeley, will point blank tell anyone that Pelagius was a christian saint.

I personally know this, because I heard Richard Jolliff teach it and I confronted Chuck Seeley privately through email and Seeley emphatically wrote me back that Pelagius was indeed a saint and not a heretic. Even though in reality, every bit of history describes Pelagius and Pelagianism differently.

Pelagius (354 – 420?) a British monk famous for his piety, but declared a heretic for denying original sin. http://www.theopedia.com/Pelagius

Who was Pelagius? He was a preacher of righteousness and very moral like Gandhi, but don’t let his morality preaching fool you. Pelagius was an evil heretic and condemned by more Church councils than any other heretic in the history of Christianity.

And not only condemned heretic, Pelagius’s teachings are behind the most heinous crimes in the history of humanity. Like the ones committed byhitler Nazi Germany against God’s chosen people, the Jews, the child medical experiments at Auschwitz and all the other horrors of World War II were all spawned from the man Pelagius who Chuck Seeley heretically teaches was a saint.

William P. Farley writes for the Assembly of God’s Enrichment Journal:

The opposite is also true. Failure to emphasize the doctrine of sin usually amplifies evil. The better we feel about ourselves the worse we usually become. In the 20th century, Pelagian ideals have unleashed untold horrors. All the utopian movements of the last 100 years — Communism, Fascism, and Nazism — started and built on Pelagian assumptions about man.

So as a minister and mayor, why would Chuck Seeley teach that Pelagius was a saint even when Pelagian ideas were behind Nazism? It’s the same horrible reason why Richard Jolliff of the same church would let Mark T. Barclay act like Hitler in the damnation of Protestant Christianity at Amazing Grace Church.

It’s an example of their great darkness that works against the Church and humanity. Men who are led by the spirit of error along with their leader and prophet Mark T. Barclay. Men, proven to have no regard for Biblical Christianity. Openly teaching evil so great that it’s not only heretical in regards to the Trinity, but it’s also murderous in regards to God’s people!

Children medical experiments

Children medical experiments, Auschwitz

Without doubt and by facts alone we know what these men teach by the simple truth of what they teach. It’s not rocket science here! The sad thing is that it’s obvious that Mark T. Barclay’s followers don’t read the bible. Nor are they submitted to the authority of Scripture, because they are unable to recognize great error even on basic Biblical doctrines as the Trinity.

The truth is that Mark T. Barclay’s teaching on the Trinity is evil. For he teaches that the one God doesn’t eternally exist as three distinct persons-the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  But instead Barclay teaches that God is made up or composed of parts, which is heretical and is the worse Trinitarian heresy in the history of Christianity.

“His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person.” Hebrews 1:2-3 KJV

Frankly, there is no way that any verse in regards to the Godhead can be rendered as “parts” or a “part”, because it would have been translated so by the New Testament translators.  We can easily make this conclusion, because even the Authorized Version doesn’t support such aweful hermeneutics as in Mark T. Barclay’s heresy….

And the express image of his person; this intends much the same as the other phrase; namely, equality and sameness of nature, and distinction of persons; for if the Father is God, Christ must be so too; and if he is a person, his Son must be so likewise, or he cannot be the express image and character of him.Bible Study Tools

It’s just more proof directly from Scripture itself that Mark T. Barclay is in deep heretical error and is worshiping and prophesying by a different Christ who is not the Father’s express image of His “person”.

The Doctrine of the Trinity and the Orthodox doctrine of the Person of Christ is not a Calvinist doctrine though it’s held by Calvinist believers, nor is the Trinity just a Pentecostal or Charismatic doctrine! But it’s a shared doctrine by the Church.

So, when this blog or any other theologian writes about the Doctrine of the Trinity, we end up quoting a vast range of theologians and pastors from all across the Body of Christ, space and time. Because of this, we can say that the defining doctrines that separate the Kingdom of Christ from the Kingdom of Cults are these central doctrines of the Trinity and the Person of Christ.

And on top of that, we need to quote what Scripture has stated, because as we can see. Mark T. Barclay’s teaching on the Trinity is not for one second supported by Scripture alone nor by Christian orthodoxy and historically has been condemned as heresy.

Most bankers will know a counterfeit dollar bill from a real dollar bill by what it feels like. And in a very similar way by comparison, we know that beyond a shadow of doubt that Mark T. Barclay is a counterfeit and a great liar, along with being a heretic by what he falsely teaches and prophesies.

In other words, just as counterfeit bills can be identified by those who used them. We, also know that Mark T. Barclay when compared to the hitler-e-mussoliniChurch’s orthodox teachings and the Bible concerning the Doctrine of the Trinity and the Person of Christ that Mark T. Barclay is a counterfeit.

In closing, Barclay and his faithful my use ad hominems against this blog and blogger, but it doesn’t change the truth that he is a heretic and his ministry is a dangerous cult. And that goes also for other men in Barclay’s Preacher of Righteousness network like Chuck Seeley.

As we’ve seen above, Pelagius was no saint, but he was a heretic, and historically a condemned heretic and his teaching is responsible for the Third Reich and the medical experiments on jewish children and the murder of millions of God’s people under Hitler’s Germany.

Mark T. Barclay’s Holy Spirit Conference 2013: The Counterfeit Spirit by Ken Mattson

 “In Genesis Chapter 1, it defines the Trinity of God, the three parts of God.” Theologian and Prophet, Mark T. Barclay[1]

 In this new blog post, I want to build upon what was already said concerning Mark T. Barclay’s destructive teachings against the Evangelical doctrine of the Trinity, but first I would like to do a refresh for those who are just tuning in.

 By denying the Persons of the Trinity and teaching that the Godhead is composed of parts like his son Josh. Mark T. Barclay is a heretic and teaching the worst heresy to ever affected and infected the Church.

 Furthermore, we can conclude along with the Creedal statements of the Historical Church that Mark T. Barclay not only has a different God by teaching heretically, but also a different Christ, like all other cults and false religions.

 The doctrine of the Trinity is so basic in Scripture, that it is a non-negotiable doctrine in Christianity. So, when a heretic teaches falsely on the Trinity, a dangerous chain reaction occurs in other foundational doctrines and one immediate catastrophe happens in Christology.

 “Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.” 1 John 2:22-23

 How can I say that Mark T. Barclay has a different Christ? Well, it is not me who has, but Scripture speaks for itself and the Christ who is self-revealed in Scripture is personal and not only a person, but fully God and fully man. He is not a part of God, but he is fully God as with the other members of the Holy Trinity.

 Here is a little side note: Central teachings in Scripture regarding the Lord Jesus Christ, like the Hypostatic union are attacked by Mark T. Barclay’s Trinitarian heresy and not only by him, but other false prophets from other cults do the same in regards to Christology.[2]

 Only persons interact with others and we see this interaction in Holy Scripture between the Persons of the Trinity. Moreover, the Holy Spirit is not just a part as Mark T. Barclay falsely teaches, but the Spirit is fully God, being Lord. The Holy Spirit is personal, lovingly interacting with the other members of the Holy Trinity and the Church.

 So, by this we can conclude that Mark T. Barclay not only has the wrong Trinity, but by doing so. Barclay like other cults and false teachers has the wrong spirit and not the Holy Spirit.

 The Spirit revealed in the Bible and who was poured out on the Church is fully God and is Lord. He is not a part as Mark T. Barclay heretically teaches, but is personal, being the third Person in the Godhead.

 “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?  Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.” Acts 5:3-4

 The above passage specifically teaches that Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit and here I would like to point out that only persons can be lied to. Peter also being a strict monotheist referred to the Spirit as God. He knew that there is only one God and yet he referred to the Holy Spirit as God.

 The doctrine of the Trinity means that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons–the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In other words, God is one in essence and three in person. These definitions express three very important truths: 1. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct Persons, 2. Each Person is fully God, 3. There is only one God.

 There are dozens of Trinitarian passages in the bible, but let us look at another important one regarding the Logos.

 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” John 1:1-4

 Who is the Word in reference to? Well it is Jesus, the eternal Son of God, who is the Word. We easily find that out by reading further in verse 14 and “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

 Here in John, the Word of God indicates distinction and not only distinction, but also indicates identity within the unity of the Godhead. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are not different parts or forms or components appearing in one God, but on the contrary! Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are present from the beginning(eternity), which suggest a relationship of close personal intimacy.

 In the Greek, John 1.1 refers to a face to face relationship between the members of the Trinity. It is so important to point out here that ‘if’ the Trinity was made up of parts as Mark T. Barclay teaches, than a face to face relationship would be impossible, because there would be no way that Josh Barclay ‘being made of three parts’ could speak to himself face to face. The New Testament never endorses the idea that the Trinity is made up of parts.

 It is clearly heretical to teach that God is made up of parts! Mark T. Barclay, like the Jehovah Witnesses have warped the Orthodox doctrine of the Trinity by denying the co-equal and co-eternal Persons of the Trinity.

 To the Jehovah Witnesses, the Word is less than deity and not fully God, but is a god and to Mark T. Barclay, the Word is just a part of God. Furthermore, Barclay denies the Word is the Second Person in the Holy Trinity by teaching, “He’s just one, he’s just got three parts”.

Athanasius Mark T. Barclay and the Jehovah Witnesses have sister heresies condemned by the Church. Saint Athanasius describes Barclay as a woman, whose father is the devil. So for those who perceive your prophet as an ‘Elder Statesman’. Well, the famous Church father has demoted Mark T. Barclay to his rightful place as an ‘elder sister’. (((insert  laugh))) Yep, the Father of Nicene orthodoxy just made fun of Mark T. Barclay!

 “But, whereas one heresy, and that the last, which has now risen as harbinger of Antichrist, the Arian, as it is called, considering that other heresies, her elder sisters, have been openly proscribed, in her craft and cunning, affects to array herself in Scripture language , like her father the devil, and is forcing her way back into the Church’s paradise.” Against the Arians by Saint Athanasius

 So, by teaching heretically on the Godhead. Mark T. Barclay not only attacks the Evangelical doctrine of the Trinity, but he also attacks the deity of Christ. There is no way around it! If Christ was only a part of God, than the Apostle John would have not referenced the Word as God, ‘the Word was God’ , nor identified him distinctly from the Father.

 “Those that permit the Holy Spirit to be their Father. Those who will allow the Holy Spirit, remember he’s not a third Person, he is God made up of three parts just like…my son Josh and his soul is not somebody else and his spirit is not someone else, and so I got to decipher…Now there’s not three people, it’s just one Josh three parts. There’s not three Gods, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, he’s just one. He’s just got three parts. So this great Holy Spirit wants to father you.” Jesus, the Command Giver – Mark T. Barclay

 Prophetically addressing Mark T. Barclay’s heresy, the Father of Nicene orthodoxy writes:

 “As we said above, so now we repeat, that the divine generation must not be compared to the nature of men nor the Son considered to be part of God nor the generation to imply any passion whatever; God is not as man; for men beget passibly, having a transitive nature, which waits for periods by reason of its weakness. But with God this cannot be; for He is not composed of parts, but being impassible and simple, He is impassibly and indivisibly Father of the Son.” Discourse 1:28 Against the Arians by Saint Athanasius

 In dealing with the Arian heresy, Saint Athanasius also deals with Mark T. Barclay’s heresy.

 So, it is pretty clear that Barclay’s heretical teaching on the Trinity is not only one heresy, but it is also partially Arianism. By the way, for those who are wondering. The modern Arians are non-other than the Jehovah Witnesses, who hold to a modified version of Arianism.

 If the Church, through Christian orthodoxy recognizes the Jehovah Witnesses, who are the modern day Arians have a different Jesus and gospel. Then by the same orthodoxy, we can and should be also able to conclude that Mark T. Barclay has a different God and Christ, by teaching a heretically on the Trinity.

 We have to be fair with this, or we will end up breaking the law of non-contradiction, which we would do so by saying that one group is heretical by having a teaching outside Christian orthodoxy and then saying another group like Mark T. Barclay is not by propagating the same type of heresy condemned by the Church through the Councils and Creeds.

 It is important to remember that when the Church formulated the orthodox statements in the Apostles and the Nicene Creeds, they were formulated before the whole Church initially split between the East and West. So, it was the whole leadership of the Church with one voice gathering to deal with Mark T. Barclay’s heresy and condemned it along with the Arians.

 The doctrinal statements like the Trinity, the Person of Christ, the Atonement, Original Sin, and the Resurrection are so foundational in Christianity. These doctrines form the line of demarcation between heresy and orthodoxy and they also form the line of demarcation between the Kingdom of Christ and the Kingdom of the Cults. These teachings are so important, because the Gospel itself rest upon them.

 “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.”   2 Peter 2:1-3

There was a Creator, he was later called Jehovah, there was his word, later on when he come here. God said you call this baby, not the Word, but Jesus which really means Yahshua…. which really means the savior….So this Word in heaven he was the Word and then of course the bible talks about the Spirit of God there hovering over the creation of God. So there was the Creator he spoke through the power of his word……now these aren’t three different people. We teach them sorta, kinda almost as three different people for the sake of teaching. Now that Creator, Word and Spirit for the sake of man understanding and relating was changed by God, you can read it in the Scriptures, I know you know this, forgive me this so elementary. But it was changed to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Father, the Creator, the Son of God really the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us….and then the Spirit, the great Holy Spirit……So you are three parts right after the image of God.” Mark T. Barclay, Jesus, the command giver.

 2. The Hypostatic Union is the union of the two natures (Divine and human) in the Person of Jesus and is so basic to Christianity. If Christ is only a part(like the other members of the Holy Trinity) and not a Person in the Godhead, as Mark T. Barclay teaches. Then there can be no Hypostatic Union, thus undermining the gospel itself by paralyzing the central eschatological figure in all Scripture, who is Christ.
