Ministry Update: So this is going to be a bit of a long post, but I wanted to give you guys an update of the events of today, but first let me take you back to this weekend.On Saturday I released lesson 1 of my series of The Kingdom of Cults. I spoke on Scientology, many of you know from some of my previous sermons that I was a member of the Church of Scientology for two years. In lesson 1 of the Kingdom of the Cults I gave a background of what Scientology is, and what they believe, I spoke about how it controlled my life and almost ruined my marriage. This was the first time that I really spoke out against the church of Scientology. I prayed that God would use my message to open the eyes of at least one member of the church of Scientology. I offered a special prayer of salvation to the Scientologist who I know would listen, you see the church of Scientology has a group of people who work for what is called the Office of Special affairs who scour the internet for negative information on Scientology. My lesson on Scientology to date is the most listened to radio program that we have released.So that brings me to today. I ran to the post office to drop off some mail this evening around 6:30, when I arrived home a car sped up behind me and pulled in front of my house. I went to investigate as a man and woman stepped out of the car, the woman ran up to me and gave me hug and said, "Brent it is so nice to finally meet you in person!!" I obviously looked shocked, and not aware of who she was because then she said, "Its me Blanca!" Then I realized I was standing face to face with Blanca Brouzet, OT VIII, and Executive director of the Church of Scientology of Buffalo New York.To give you a bit of information and to decode some of the Scientology speak so far, OT VIII, or Operating Thetan Level 8 is the highest level of spiritual enlightenment avaiabel in the church of Scientology currently, there are 15 levels total but the upper levels are not released yet. Other notable OT VIII's are Tom Cruise.As Executive Director of the Church of Buffalo she is like the President of the Church for Buffalo, pretty high up in the grand scheme of things, and here she was face to face with me. Now I thought she was here to serve me my excommunication papers, or "Golden Rod" from the church, so I asked her and her male companion to join me for coffee at Starbucks, I wanted them as far away from my house as I could get them.So we went to Starbucks, I messaged members on the Board of Brent Whetstone Ministries to pray for me as I went on this trip. I asked the Holy Spirit to guide me, and he did just that.I was able to share the Gospel Message and TRUE Message of Salvation with the Executive Director of the church of Scientology of Buffalo, who happened to be a former Christian. I know that because of the seed that was planted that the Holy Spirit can begin to work in her life and bring her back into the fold and out of the cult. Her male companion was receptive, as well.I want you as my friends and partners to please pray for Blanca and her male companion. That the seed that was planted would grow and that the Holy Spirit would send more people into their lives to water it even more. Winning a top executive for Christ will have a major impact on bringing down this cult from the inside and bringing more people to Jesus.This Saturday we will be diving further into Scientology and I will share more of the events of today on a special broadcast of Word of Faith Radio and on Spreecast. Be sure to tune in!I love and pray for you all!!-Brent
Just so you know the broadcast will be at 10:30am EST and a live chat is available during the show!
Hello All!! I figured I would stop by and see how you all are doing!! I am glad that you have taken the time to listen to my program on the Cult of Scientology. I hope that you all will join me this Saturday as we again dive deeper into what this cult really is. If you wanted to submit questions in advance so I could prepare, that would be great!!
I will be discussing a bit about the Ministers course, a little more about my experience with the church, both the mission in Cleveland and the Org in Buffalo. But other than that I was going to open it up to the listeners!
