Book Exposes Illuminati "Alpha Course"

December 30, 2009


by Nancy Thomson

A book available online"The Hidden Secrets of the Alpha Course" by New Zealander John D. Christian exposes the insidious Illuminati Alpha Course as occult indoctrination posing as an introduction to Christianity.

"Alpha" is being used in over 150 countries encompassing 49 different languages.  It has infiltrated the homes, schools, universities, business, hospitals, prisons, churches and even the military.

Since London is known to be the headquarters of the occult, it is not surprising that the Alpha originated there.  In 1970 an English cleric, Charles Marnham, devised a four- week series of lessons for non-churchgoers and new Christians. In 1981, Nicky Gumbel, a former barrister of Holy Trinity Brompton, extended the course to 8 weeks.  This is how the fastest growing ecumenical evangelization program in world history began.

Alpha presents itself as a "new beginning" and its course structure became a tool for church growth and indoctrination.  Videos and tapes, specially produced by the speakers are based on the book titled Questions of Life. This book sets out the structure and content of Alpha.  

Group sessions included weekly suppers and discussions, culminating in a "Holy Spirit Weekend Away."  Hailed as a means to bring people to a personal salvation, the Alpha course does this without preaching the Gospel.

The Holy Spirit Weekend Away, which is mandatory, is actually a thinly disguised devil worship experience. Alpha's Questions of Life book, the basis of the whole course, is the structure used to pervert the Gospel.  In addition to the "Holy Spirit Weekend," the Alpha Course  uses mind-control encapsulated and propaganda to sway the innocents.


In just over 20 years, the Alpha system is growing like wildfire in Protestant and Catholic churches.  Marriage courses, Alpha in the Workplace, and 80 percent of all prisons and universities in the UK now run Alpha.  There were 8,142 Alpha courses running in over 7,300 all denomination churches in the UK alone.  The number of churches in the U.S. using Alpha is growing faster than any other country. 

Growth is a very important factor in this system.  It's not surprising therefore that our mega-churches such as Rick Warren's PURPOSE-DRIVEN Saddleback Church are involved.  The true purpose behind the PURPOSE DRIVEN CHURCH AND LIFE is the establishment of a final One World Religion.  Key advisers from all over America gathered in London in 2003 to report on their plans to implement Alpha into the U.S. churches.

The congregation and friends of Holy Trinity Brompton financed the Alpha development, and resource courses were sold at a profit.  Since the goal was to involve the whole world in their project, Alpha International was founded in 2001.  Capitol investment became worldwide, and was headed by a Jewish banker, Ken Costa, Chairman of Alpha Partners. 

This banker just happened to be Vice Chairman of UBS -Warburg, London.  UBS stands for Union Bank of Switzerland-Warburg.  The banking firm of Walburg has long been linked to the giant international Marxist Rothschild banking conglomerate based in the City of London.  Isn't it strange that Warburg would be running a Christian organization?


The book contains extensive information about the Illuminati bankers and their Satanic predilections.

Our Federal Reserve System had as its prime mover the late Mr Paul Warburg whose brother was involved with the international banking house of Kuhn, Loeb that included Jacob Schiff .  The Schiff's are the oldest contemporary Jewish family dating back to 1370.  These men, besides implementing our Federal Reserve System, helped found the Bank of International Settlements in Switzerland that is scheduled to become the World Bank. The huge Rockefeller Manhattan Bank united with the Chase Bank controlled by Kuhn, Loeb.  Then the Rothchild/Warburg took over control of this bank.

Many are under the false impression that banking conglomerates J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller are American.  They are not.  Rockefellers owned a small portion of their bank and J.P. Morgan was founded in London. "British" control of our banking system dates back to the original founding of the Virginia Company.

Books authored by the Warburgs contain communist propaganda.  James Warburg was a member of Franklin Roosevelt's Brain Trust, masterminded Eisenhower's presidential campaign, and was chief financier of the United World Federalist World Government movement.

Communism is the end product of apostate Christendom-both Catholic and Protestant. All "New Age" Bibles were produced by 2 English professors who were Communists and Christian Socialists. 

Bibles promoted by the Alpha library are these: The Bible for Today, The Contemporary English Version and the NIV.  These are actually Communist versions based on corrupt text.  Fabian Socialism is linked to a "Christian Socialist" organization.  The "war on terrorism" is a classic British Fabian Socialist strategy.  Inflict a series of "terrorist attacks" against a targeted population, use reaction from the attacks to justify the solution--i.e. to implement a police state over the region.  Fabians acknowledge the principal tenet of Marxism, the abolition of private property.

On August 15th 1995, Russia and Boeing signed a contract to develop the first module of the new Alpha International Space Station. Massive sums of money by the U.S., Russia and the European Space Agency have been spent. Scheduled for completion in 2006, we are told the International Station is just "a scientific space laboratory." 

Alpha MIRCAL lasers were being developed at White Sands Missile Base in 1985.  Some speculate that the Alpha MIRCAL lasers could be used for mind control purposes in connection with the International Space Station.

Comments for "Book Exposes Illuminati "Alpha Course""

Jay said (January 3, 2010):

If I may be indulged once more in this, Gary's comments on Christ's deity and Trinitarianism are simply at odds with Scripture. To reiterate John Ch 1, the Word of God (i.e. the Son) is said to be co-existing eternally with God (the Father) and as God, that is, co-equal, but distinct in personality and office. That is why Jesus often prayed to the Father in Heaven; there would be no sense in doing so if the Father specifically constituted Christ's divine nature. Likewise when Jesus speaks of Him and the Father together, that is, "we" making "our abode" with believers, it's impossible to conclude that the Son of God is a separate Person from the Father within the Godhead.

Gary's and Steve's error is, apart from misconstruing Scripture, in seeing paganised presentations of the trinity and then assuming that Christianity imbibed and reworked the concept, whereas the doctrine of the trinity was known to the early Hebrews e.g. Genesis 3:2: "the man is become as one of us" or the account of the Angel of the Lord in Genesis 16:7 onwards or even the very terms "Elohim" and "Adonai" which each denote plurality. That God is said to be "one God" is as telling as a man and his wife being termed "one flesh", and thus speaks of the nature of God rather than any singularity of personage within the Godhead. What paganism has done is taken the concept and made its own corrupt versions.

Finally, the "oneness pentecostal" theology Gary presents is a natural consequence of accepting authority or guidance from any source other than "the more sure Word" that is Holy Scripture, despite the Bible warning that prophesies and other charismata, and the apostles themselves, were to pass away (1 Cor 13:8), being only foundational to the Christian era (Ephesians 2:20). If we just stick to the Whole Counsel of God and forsake all other sources of guidance, we'll avoid a world of error such as Unitarianism, Pentecostalism and the Alpha Course.

Gary said (January 2, 2010):

I think that Jay might be misunderstanding what Steve was trying to say [below], I don't think that Steve was denying the deity of Christ, but rather denying the pagan doctrine of the trinity that was mixed with an offshoot of true Christianity after the time of the apostles when Satan saw he could not destroy the church he settled for making an alternate counterfeit church, giving pagan Babylonian and Mithratic beliefs an outward Christian veneer to lead people away from real Bible truth. (I believe the true church has always survived throughout history even though they were persecuted by the apostate offshoot "church")

The first commandment by virtue of being first must have been very important, what was it ?

Mark 12:29 "And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord"

That Deity consists of only one "divine" consciousness (not 3 separate ones) was deemed very important indeed.

We must remember that Deity incarnated INTO flesh in the person of Jesus Christ and that Jesus had a dual nature from being both God and man in one being, he had a human consciousness as a man in addition to having the consciousness of being God incarnate.

2 Corinthians 5:19 "To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself...."

Those of us who believe this Bible truth are generally referred to as "apostolic" or "oneness pentecostal" and if those sincere people who automatically reject this truth and wrongly try to classify us as a cult would do as much of a thorough in depth research into the pagan origin of the trinity doctrine as they do with researching the "New World Order" they will learn it for themselves. One apostolic web site I found online that freely shares some excellent research in exposing the New World Order is it has a lot of detailed research about prophecy and the various aspects of the New World Order.

If the investors money in this came from the sources mentioned I think there may be reason to take a closer look...why would people
opposed to Christianity be interested in financing this. It could be okay, as Ian described, and maybe the author is taking a hard line. I think I am a pretty good judge of these things, whether or not thy are at odds with
scripture, but I would have to go thru the course. The church is affected in some circles by a "watered down" Gospel and New Age thinking...Christians can be funny too and deceived on various levels. Some Christian groups hold that "speaking in tongues" is of the devil, very much not true as the Book of Acts
and Paul affirm, and personal experience. I have heard of counterfeits, but then there is the genuine, a part of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and a very important avenue.

Steve says he is a Christian and then goes on to deny the deity of Christ. But "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God , and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God... All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made... And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." (John 1:1-14, fragments)

The whole idea of the Messianic religion was that God would be incarnated on earth as Emmanuel, literally, "God with us", to lead a perfectly sinless life by way of procuring a flawless human righteousness to be imputed on His people, the reward for which would be eternal life, and also to submit Himself to death and thus endure the Father's wrath on behalf of His people, to pay for their sins and effectively buy their escape from eternal damnation. To deny this is to absolve oneself from any interest in the term "Christian".

Steve is right though about Pagan mother and son god worship being disseminated by Roman Catholicism, which is why, amongst many other reasons, there were Christian groups which existed for centuries outside Romanism (e.g. the Albigensians and the old Celtic church), and which was also why the Reformation took place. The true doctrine of Mystery Babylon is man-centric, works-reliant religion in diametric opposition to Christ-centric, Christ-reliant faith. In short, for acceptance with God a Christian relies on what Christ alone did in this world, whereas every other religion places reliance of rituals, works, rites, observance of rules, etc., for acceptance with God.

Del said (January 1, 2010):

Ian's comment [below] says he knows much of this group/program first hand and works closely with them. He is proud to claim more knowledge about it than most. Yet, so many names, so little meaningful information regarding the real content and long-term results of this "Alpha Course". However, we are simply to trust his words and personal experience. Hmmm...

These [things] have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
- 1 John 2:26-27 - (whole chapter, really)

I don't know. Maybe this is God's New Order. Maybe it's just more of the same old New World Order. Time and souls will tell...

Steve said (January 1, 2010):

Alpha is probably not much more watered down or corrupt than most of what goes on in larger denominations (I'm a Christian by the way).

Babylon mystery religions can be traced through to Egypt and Rome and Roman Catholicism. The doctrine of the trinity, that God = the son of God, is a deliberate perversion and forgery. Mary the "mother of god" is simply a continuation of Isis and Horus. The statue of St. Peter in Rome is really an old statue of Apollo if I remember correctly. Protestant churches have by and large gone along.

Christians have been getting "dumbed down" for centuries.

Perhaps the most spectacular outreach of God's Word is recorded in Acts 19, where the apostle Paul and about 12 others moved the Word, dynamically and completely, throughout Asia Minor in a little over 2 years. No TV, no email, no phones. And this under the rule of the powerful Roman government.

If can get rid of the accuracy of the Word in Christianity then you just have religion.

HF said (December 31, 2009):

Henry, in reply to Ian s comments,below, why does he think he needs an Alpha Course, or any other "filtered" message, when he has the Bible?

Did he not read, that anyone is cursed who adds to the Bible?

No programs like that are necessary, as God speaks directly to us in the Bible, no middleman required who give their version or interpretation of the scriptures, there is Jesus himself, and no-one else, who mediates between a faithful person and our Father in heaven.

God bless you and all who don't compromise and love the truth.

Ian said (December 31, 2009):

The article on the Alpha Course is not right !
The course is definitely not ''occult indoctrination posing as an introduction to Christianity''.

If one has not met God and doesn't have a personal relationship with him then i could kind of see it could be confusing. But i am a Christian ( i did not become one through the Alpha course ), and i know many many who have come to faith through this course.
I have helped on this course several times.
The church Holy Trinity Brompton in South Kensington is and has been run by very God-fearing and moral people, ( Sandy Millar was one of the main people for 20 years ).

There is certainly NO brain washing. I have helped on many ten week Alpha courses. It is actually I can tell u first hand very gentle and does not force the Gospel on people.

It does however offer people a chance to reflect on their opinion of God and Jesus dying for them, and help them take the chance to think
differently from the mainstream media and culture.

The church definitely promotes marriage. It does not ' not mention the cross of Jesus' and the Alpha weekend is DEFINITELY not a devil worship
weekend. I should know I have been on many!!
The Holy Spirit weekend is very simple, and all that 'happens' is that after one of the meetings people are asked if they want to be prayed for. Which is certainly not sudden, as in its the 8th week of the 10 week course. And also it certainly IS NOT satanic!!!

I have hung out with the many of the families who are running the church including Nicky Gumbles family.

In the picture you put up there of Alpha, I know A.G. on the right in the picture he is a worship leader at the church and i rented a room from C on the left.

I also spent time with Kate in the picture, she is now married to the youth pastor Matt at the church.

I have not hung out with Ken Costa, but know many people who have. I know for a fact that the Church is not financed mainly by him and a few others.

There are now 200 staff amongst other expenses and that is certainly not funded by a faithful few !

I had supper with a couple who have given thousands to Holy Trinity Bromton the other week and they are certainly not illuminati !??

I was either attending or a part of that church on and off for 15 years until we moved out of London. I even worked in the main office
for 2 years. Going to lunch at many of the key people's houses.

The reason the course has done so well is because firstly God does exist and wants to have a relationship with people. Our sin is what blocks us from a perfect God and so Jesus died in our place.

Secondly because there is a hunger in this immoral society we live in and this fills this with wholesome teaching from the Bible.

I am not mad with you for being so off, because you like to research and analyze. And i do too !
But I guess it has been upsetting to read this article knowing full well that is not true!


This is a review by Nancy Thompson of a book by John Christian. I have not had time yet to read the book or research the Alpha course. But there is definitely a lot wrong with the established church, and I suspect this is part of the reason.
