Christian Research Network Endorses Mike Warnke and Lauren Stratford.

Christian Research Network Endorses Mike Warnke and Lauren Stratford.

Dwyana Litz is on record of stating that she believes those who did the expose’ on Mike Warnke and Lauren Stratford are liars and a Satanic front.

Cornerstone magazine did a report in 1991 that exposed Mike Warnke and Lauren Stratford as frauds, here is the story.

Dwyana Litz has openly attacked Jesus People USA and has now called John Trott a liar… John gives his rebuttal here.

Here is a bit from Wikipedia as far as the facts.

"Investigation, debunking and disgrace
1991, Cornerstone magazine launched an investigation into Warnke's life and testimony. The previous year, that magazine had debunked the story recounted in Satan's Underground, by Lauren Stratford who claimed her deep involvement in Satanism led her to partake in a ritual in which her own child was sacrificed. After this exposé, which showed that for instance, Stratford's alleged child never existed, Cornerstone journalists Mike Hertenstein and Jon Trott investigated Warnke. They investigated Warnke's life, from interviews with over 100 personal friends and acquaintances, to his ministry's tax receipts. Their investigation turned up damaging evidence of fraud and deceipt.

The investigation revealed pictures of Warnke taken during the precise time of his alleged status as a Satanist priest. Instead of an emaciated drug-addict sporting long fingernails and waist-length hair, the pictures showed Warnke to be a typical 'square' of the mid-
1960s.[citation needed] The investigation refuted, for instance, Warnke's claims that mass-murderer he and Charles Manson had attended a Satanic ritual — Manson was in federal prison at the time. It also uncovered that before even joining the Navy, where Warnke claims to have converted, he had been involved with a college Christian ministry, Campus Crusade for Christ. The investigation also revealed the unflattering circumstances surrounding Warnke's multiple marriages, affairs, and divorces. Most critically, however, the investigation showed how Warnke could not possibly have done the many things he claimed to have done throughout his nine-month tenure as a Satanist, much less become a drug-addicted dealer or become a Satanic high preist.[7]

Before publishing the article, Cornerstone contacted Warnke for an interview, but Warnke claimed that he and Cornerstone could not agree to the terms of an interview.
[8] In June 1992, at the annual Christian Booksellers' Association convention, Cornerstone revealed its story. "

Mike never really apologized and as you read in the links on John Trott’s site it seems he is just upset he was caught.

I am growing ever more concerned at the Christian Research Network as they seem loose with facts as with the recent Beth Moore innuendo that she is an apostate because of how much she charges.

Be aware that these people are not discerning at all. In fact it seems the more accountable we cry out for them to be the nastier and snide and mocking they get. Ken Silva seems to think he is above reproach. It should be a warning sign as Satan appears as an angel of light and his messengers agents of righteousness.

I have tried to contact at least three of the contributors and have dialoged with them… yet though they seem more open in the emails, they seem to return to the view that it is a righteous thing to slander and lie and do damage to their bothers in Christ.

Walter Martin held much more charity towards Mormons than Ken Silva and the gossip crew does at CRN with whom they have doctrinal disagreements with.
