The Whosoevers – Lies Legitimatized?

In their first conference since the big Calvary Chapel split of November 2016, the CC Association [CCA] is holding a “Stay The Course” conference April 3-5th, 2017. When it was originally announced, there were nine CCA guys in the lineup, but then, ten days later, and without explanation, Ryan Ries [RR] was added to the lineup.

It should have been a forewarning – when Ries, who was not a scheduled speaker – was snuck into a group picture of speakers at the “Dunamis” conference held at CC Downey on Feb. 16-18. The CCA is making a HUGE mistake inviting Ries to speak at their conference.

Aside from the many problems inherent in the Whosoever ministry (as has been documented) – back on May 21, 2016, RR had Brian ‘Head’ Welch [BHW], on his nationwide “Shine” radio broadcast – and doubled down on the previous lies and whitewash of the Whosoevers. There is no other word for it, but straight up lies and deception – Now, continuing, from the infamous 11/21/2014 KWVE Whosoever whitewash, to this very day.

No one seemed to be bothered much, when just two months prior to the 11/21/14 KWVE whitewash – wherein Ryan openly lied, saying that BHW “is NOT hanging out with” heretical teachers – Head himself admitted – in his Sept. 30th, 2014 endorsement of contemplative “mystic” Milly Bennitt (on his “Love Drunk Headly” FB page) : “The church at large would call this New Age, but… I’ve been connected to this type of life since 2006. I AM NOT HIDING WHO I AM to please anybody!”

The massive amount of documented evidence of Brian Head Welch’s heretical associations is beyond dispute – and forms a continuous stream, from at least 2012 up to the present day. Though he claims otherwise – it is a fact – that the majority of photos and videos taken of BHW with false teachers are not simply of him sitting passively in the audience, but of his participating in various events with these men.

Also, note that most of the documentation of BHW’s errors come from his own (and his friend’s) social media posts – wherein he openly endorses and/ or promotes many false teachers. Now, two years later – after being given his own live radio show – Ryan has again found it necessary to go on nation-wide radio and brazenly lie concerning Welch – in an vain attempt to legitimatize the Whosoevers money-making enterprise, and dispel “rumors”.

It should be quite clear, after all of the years of documentation, that Brian Head Welch believes in the false “Jesus” of the false “Apostles” of the New Apostolic Reformation [NAR]. The theology and eschatology of these people is completely antithetical to Biblical Christianity. For Ryan Ries and his facilitators to attempt to perpetuate the facade that this is somehow not a problem, is a despicable deception.

The real problem isn’t even Welch himself, so much as the fact that Ryan Ries and his facilitators – Brian Brodersen, Raul Ries and others – would facilitate and perpetuate outright lies, and go to such lengths to sanitize, indeed, whitewash the Whosoevers.

This is no longer a matter just involving Brodersen & Calvary Costa Mesa, but now involves the men on the CCA. Men who are now apparently facilitating Ryan Ries and granting him cover – allowing him to use the CCA to legitimatize his lies.

No matter how you try to legitimatize it – No matter WHO endorses it – You cannot build a genuine Christian ministry on a foundation of lies – for, “No lie is of the TRUTH”! – 1 John 2:21

    Their title should read: Stay the Course on the downward spiral into apostasy!

    As usual, they all will just brush it under the rug.

    Thank you for posting and exposing all of this!
    God bless,

    1. For the most part, the CCA has been the better half in the Calvary split. BUT, this is what happens when men want to be perceived as “loving”, magnanimous and tolerant… When they “fear” the opinions of others above the fear of God and His Word. But, the Bible says, “Blessed is the man who makes The Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” – Psalm 40:4 Tolerating deception and lies in Christian ministry is bad for the whole body (church) – “Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven… Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth!” – 1Cor. 5:6-8

    1. That’s a very good question. I have at least one friend who’s writing them for their response. Big problem I see with the whole Whosoever thing attached to any CC’s – CCA affiliate or otherwise – is that to UN-endorse at this point means admitting error of judgement and “losing face”, etc.

        As Christians, we should never be afraid or too proud to admit a mistake or sin. I am sure you already know this.
        Although, it may be far more difficult for them to see the error of their ways because of Raul Reese’s involvement.

    Hi again,

    Yes, I meant the church at large, not CCA specifically.
    I’m on the internet all the time regarding the apostasy and it has infected every denomination that once was biblical, every organization that claims to be Christian, and so on. I’m sure you are aware! ( ;

    And like that losing face comment, yes, they trap themselves and it is hard to get untangled and preserve their public image because that’s all they care about.

    I know you are aware of Lighthouse Trails, have you ever been to a site called Truthkeepers?

    God bless!
    ( :

    1. I know it’s not just the Calvary’s that are are compromised, but much of the corporate church. While so many proclaim an end-time “revival”, they seem unaware that it is rather a great apostasy that was predicted [2Thes. 2:3-11] in the Bible, and now is upon us. And, yes, both Lighthouse Trails and CH Fisher @Truthkeepers are excellent.

    I’m very disheartened over CCA’s endorsement of RR. The nepotism will destroy the CC’s if they continue this path. Very sad.

    I do not believe one needs a church or a given religion! One must be a believer in Jesus Christ. The Bible is the only truth! One must give mind, body and soul to Jesus. Trust him. Pray and ask forgiveness of your sins! It is the only way! Look at the world today….so sad!!!
