Letter from Tal Brooke
Spiritual Counterfeits Project (SCP) has been a frontline ministry confronting the occult, the cults, and the New Age movement and explaining why they are making an impact on our society. In the name of truth, sophisticated lies are fed to unwary people who live in and shape our world. Our mandate is to communicate with our generation by creating crossover material that alerts and informs about the very real dangers of the latest deceptions. It is a critical mission at a critical time.
I am told allegations have been made by individuals that the ministry of Jews for Jesus is a cult, or cult-like in its behavior, that the organization is spiritually abusive in practice. These allegations cannot be further from the truth. I have personally known both Moishe Rosen, the organization’s founder, and David Brickner, the current executive director, for many years. I have been impressed with the organization they represent and the care these men have shown in presenting the historic gospel message with clarity and with integrity.
Let me say that knowing a number of Jews for Jesus staff over the years has provided me with added respect for how Jews for Jesus cares for its own staff and encourages individuality and creativity in approaches to their mission goals. People are trusted and given a lot of latitude in their decisions. This is the antithesis of cult-like behavior.
I also believe that Jews for Jesus have held true to the gospel message under pressures that would have broken the backs of most ministries, showing character and resolve under a range of very trying situations, including considerable resistance from the very people they are trying to reach. I am more than pleased to commend this unique and frontline ministry to others as one with high accountability and high achievement in the field of Jewish evangelism.
President and Chairman,
Spiritual Counterfeits Project
