Light and Life

In another of my expeditions into the wilder reaches of Christianity I came across a Scottish organisation called Light and Life who you can find on the internet here:

This organisation attends community events and run fairs which are similar to psychic fairs but based on apparently Christian principals. Their web site describes one of their forthcoming events:

This will be a great stress-busting evening with FREE: live music, dream interpretation, spiritual readings, head, shoulder & hand massage; prophetic art and healing prayer. We will also have stalls selling jewellery, arts, crafts & other similar merchandise.

It really does sound like a psychic or new age fair. Its hard to see what any of this has to do with Christianity. The image above is a screen capture from their web site and yes, it actually does say "massage extra". Presumably they have led much more sheltered lives than I have or they might have chosen better phrasing.

Who is behind it?
Light and Life has quite a few volunteers and an advisory board which has members from Healing Rooms, CLAN, Pray for Scotland and YWAM. After a bit of further digging around I found that they share a number of people in common with Glasgow Prophetic Centre which runs prophetic mentoring schools and is itself is closely associated with Sharon Stone and Glasgow Elim (a church which promoted the Lakeland Revival and which is closely associated with the Toronto Blessing).

Their intention is to expand Light and Life to every town in Scotland, so its coming to a town near you soon, presumably.


  1. Thanks for highlighting yet another false church, false doctrine and people who do not have the truth. The devil can and does disguise himself as an angel of light (2 corinthians 11:14)

    God says in 1 John 1:8..

    If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

    I hope and pray God shows you mercy, that he opens your eyes, and that you repent and turn to the Lord Jesus for forgiveness and salvation

  2. I think they are just hi-jacking new age practices just to look trendy not being new age. I cannot see how crafts, art, jewellery and candles can be ungodly. Maybe to the Puritans and extreme Pentecostals who want to live an austere lifestyle, have no ornaments in their homes and wear grey, brown and navy all the time and expect everybody else to.

    It is interesting to note that Jesus was accused by religious people to do works of the devil and some people believe the same of light and life. I find that rather funny, in a sad kind of way. Bringing God's love in unique ways somehow confuses religious folks.
