PAST NEWS & UPDATES






JANUARY 24, 2006:

G'Day again...

Well... There's a new item on the FAQ pages in answer to a recurring question that keeps popping up from time to time based on some misunderstandings and misconceptions some hold concerning Wicca, Neo-Paganism, Witchcraft and Satanism... CAN YOU SELL YOUR SOUL TO SATAN?..

There are also a few new and updated entries in the Glossary Section under "P".

More to come...

DECEMBER 27, 2005:

G'Day...

DECEMBER 4, 2005:

G'Day...

More to come...

NOVEMBER 26, 2005:

G'Day...

Well... after much ado behind the scenes we seem to have settled in nicely to our new address and have begun to get back into producing regular updates again.

The most recent is found in our FAQ Pages and concerns that ever curly question "What Does the Bible say about Women in Ministry?"

There is perhaps not a more debated issue in the church today than the issue of women serving as pastors / preachers in ministry.   As a result, it is very important to not view this issue as men versus women.   There are women who believe that women should not serve as pastors and that the Bible places restrictions on the ministry of women - and there are men who believe that women can serve as preachers and that there are no restrictions on women in ministry.   This is not an issue of chauvinism or discrimination.   It is an issue of Biblical interpretation and doctrine!

There are also a number of new and updated entries in the Glossary Section under "D", "E", "F" and "G".

More to come...

NOVEMBER 19, 2005:

G'Day...

Well, here's a new piece by David Coltheart on the so-called "Gosford Glyphs", a series of Pseudo-Egyptian carvings found in the bush surrounding Gosford, New South Wales, Australia, that has become a magnet for New Agers... Although I haven't had time to update the Navigation Bar to the left of the screen you can access the article directly here... DEBUNKING THE GOSFORD GLYPHS

NOVEMBER 5, 2005:

G'Day again...

As you may have already noticed we have gone through some changes in the past 24 hours... A new name and a new domain...

Our original site at bornagainpagan.multiservers.com (This link opens the page in a New Window) are still up and running at the moment but any new updates will only be found here at our new domain www.exWitchAustralia.com.   (Many, many thanks to Pastor Art of HisSheep.org for his invaluable assistance in setting up our new domain)

There is a handful of new entries in the Glossary Section under "B" and "C"

Over the next few weeks we will be progressively replacing the pages at our original site bornagainpagan.multiservers.com so that surfers will be redirected to www.exWitchAustralia.com.... Please bear with us through the inevitable teething troubles such major changes will no doubt involve.   We will endevour to make these changes as quickly and as painlessly for all and hope to have all links, redirection pages, etc sorted within the next few days...

Once this has been completed - and in response to a number of requests by other former members of the US based exWitch Forums - we will begin looking at setting up our own Forum... Come back for updates on the progress of this project...

Hey!   ...And don't forget to update your Bookmarks and Favourites folders... 8-)

OCTOBER 29, 2005:

G'Day all...

In recent weeks I have recieved a number of complaints concerning the 'Google ads' which appear at the top of each page of the version of this site located at http://bornagainpagan.multiservers.com.   The ads hawk Wiccan jewelry, witch training programs, and more.

Unfortuneately being on a free server like multiservers I am stuck with the ads... it is the price I pay for an otherwise free service... unfortuneately because of the site's content the sytem used in 'targeting' supposedly suitable advertising picks up on the occult terminology and I end up with pro-occult ads...

As a reult I have however established a mirror site at another free server I have since found that does not require I have their ads... so to view the ad-free version of the site go to http://bornagainpagan.evangel-list.com (This link will open the page in a New Window)

I hope this helps....

SEPTEMBER 11, 2005:
UPDATED September 12, 2005

G'Day all...

Well... not only am I still banned at US based ExWitch Ministries but now ExWitch Founder and head false prophet Kathi Sharpe - who maintains that I am destined by God to one day be in leadership at that ministry - has begun legal proceedings against me...

Bit of a contradiction, huh?   ...and certainly unscriptural practice to begin legal proceedings against a fellow Christian... Compare Ms Sharpe's actions with the Scriptural admonissions of 1 Corinthians 6:1-8 and Matt 18:15-17.

Here's an excerpt from a recent e-mail I recieved from Kathi...

On 09/09/05 Kathi Sharpe wrote:

Jean-Luc, this is to serve you notice that ExWitch, ExWitch Ministries, exwitch.org and exwitch.com (and any other domain extensions) are copyrighted and trademarked terms and you may NOT register them as domains in Australia or any country.

A complaint has been filed with your national registrar agency pre-emptively.

Good day,

Kathi Sharpe
ExWitch Ministries (USA)
http://www.exwitch.org

Unfortuneately for Kathi she has as little understanding of of Australian Law in this matter as she does of sound Scriptural teaching and I can indeed - and WILL - register my domain name and move this site there...

Ms Sharpe...

1 Cor. 6:7 has this to say "Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another.   Why not rather be wronged?   Why not rather be defrauded?"   That is if you consider that a website with a similar domain leaves you "wronged" or "defrauded".   I for one fail to see how this is the case... Especially when you claim that God has told you I shall one day be in leadership at ExWitch Ministries (USA)...

But wait... there are even greater inconsistencies to be found at US based ExWitch Forums...

While Kathi Sharpe maintains her ban on me at ExWitch Ministries (USA) and has removed all links to this site at the Forums themselves she maintains (despite MULTIPLE requests to remove it) a link to my testimony at http://www.exwitch.org/cms/mod.php?mod=userpage&menu=16&page_id=26 on the main ExWitch Ministries (USA) Website - thereby creating the FALSE and MISLEADING impression that I am still a part of - or at least endorse - ExWitch Ministries (USA)...

I understand that the use of such false representations attempting to give creedence to Ms Sharpe without my permission is a felony crime (fraud) in the United States.

NOTE: Since this was posted Kathi Sharpe has removed the above links from her site...

Let it be clearly understood by all that I am NOT - and WILL NOT - be a part of, or in ANY way endorse, ExWitch Ministries (USA) while they continue to practice unscriptural practices in regards to either a) their treatment of other Christians and/or b) in regard to their "Spiritual Warfare" doctrines and practices (see Spiritual Warfare and the exWitch in the Articles Section of this site)!

Kathi Sharpe's methods and tactics are certainly NOT the way one would expect the leader of a reputable Christian Ministry to treat a fellow believer... especially one that they CLAIM God has destined to one day be in a leadership position at that self same Ministry now is it?

Apparently others on staff at exWitch don't think so either...

On 10/09/05 Julie James (known at exWitch Forums simply as Jules) asked the following of Kathi...

Kathi - stop obssessing and stop it with the unChristlike threats of legal action.  This is no way to treat someone who is hurting and damaged by things in his past; it's flat contrary to scripture, and you will be judged more heavily by virtue of your position.  Back away from your temper and go and pray.  You have been put in your position by God but you don't have lifetime tenure.  EW is God's ministry not yours and He will remove ANY of us who gets in the way, and that includes you if you don't act like the leader He has called you to be and care for the people He brings along.  Can He trust you with them?

No reply has been forthcoming....

AUGUST 04, 2005:

G'Day all...

The first of a series of articles detailing some of the dodgy doctrine regarding Spiritual Warfare and the exWitch as taught by the Admin and Staff at exWitch Ministries has now been uploaded to the Articles Section...

AUGUST 03, 2005:

G'Day...

Regular visitors will have noticed that ALL links to exWitch Ministries are being removed from this site - with over 1200 pages to work thru this will take some time... I am currently in the process of compiling a piece for the Articles Section of this site that will detail why I am taking this step.  

Suffice it to say at this point that this move is being taken in response to an ongoing dispute concerning various FALSE doctrines concerning Spiritual Warfare taught by the Admin and Staff at exWitch Ministries and various FALSE claims and statements concerning myself and this ministry made by exWitch Ministries Founder Kathi Sharpe that she claimed were direct "from God"...
