Lonnie Frisbee

Chuck Smith claims a slightly built, long-haired Jesus freak named Lonnie Frisbee brought the first ragtag fellowship of seekers to a Bible study.

"The back door opened and all these kids with long hair and bells on their jeans came in and sat down." - Chuck Smith

"I can remember the shocked expressions on the faces of the other people when Chuck Smith calls Lonnie Frisbee the first neoevangelist of the Jesus Movement." - Charisma magazine

Lonnie Frisbee, hippie Charismatic Pentecostalist and self-described "seeing prophet" and mystic, packs Chuck Smith's fellowship with so many hippies that a large circus tent has to be pitched on a 10-acre plot of land where Calvary Chapel's present facility is located in Costa Mesa.

Chuck Smith is struck by Lonnie Frisbee's charisma, "I was not at all prepared for the compassion that this young man would radiate."

Lonnie Frisbee sparks Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel revival.

"When the Lord called me, I was going into the desert and I was taking all my clothes off and I was going ' Lord if You're really real, reveal Yourself to me!' And one afternoon, the whole atmosphere of this canyon I was in started to tingle and get light and started to change and I was going 'Uh-oh!' I didn't want to be there!" - Lonnie Frisbee

Lonnie Frisbee's religious career began with a pilgrimage of friends to Tahquitz Canyon outside Palm Springs.

"So we drove out to Tahquitz Falls and we hiked up - he wanted to go to the very top falls.

Once he got there, he opened his back pack and spread out LSD, marijuana, oil paints and togas, and he told us to put on togas, so we did.

He proceeded to paint a full-sized image of Jesus on the rock.

Then he pulled out his Bible and he got into a kinda yoga position.

"We're gonna read the Bible now."

He began reading about John the Baptist and he baptized us up at Tahquitz Falls." - Judy Meston

Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman was born again at the age of fourteen in the Methodist Church of Concordia, began planting fellowships at the age of fifteen.

Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman was an adulteress, lived a flamboyant lifestyle - expensive clothes, precious jewels, luxury hotels and first-class travel - while her "Healing Revival" employees worked at starvation wages.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta mimiced Kathryn.

Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman had a weekly television program in the 1960s and 1970s which aired nationally titled I Believe In Miracles.

Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman introduced slain in the spirit.

Kathryn Johanna Kuhlman took the phrase slain in the spirit and turned it on its head and made it a mind blowing experience rather than the original connotation which was ego death.

"Lonnie must have fixed this one particular room up. There were candles lit and everything. The room filled up with people and we had taken some LSD and he was reading the Gospel of John out loud, and we're goin' through the whole gospel. We get to the end of it, it's the crucifixion stuff, everybody's crying, you know, and not one person left the room. And then it was over. Lonnie was a planner of experiences." - Connie (Frisbee) Bremer-Murray

Lonnie Frisbee mentored neoevangelist Greg Laurie who established Harvest fellowship.

Lonnie Frisbee's attachment to the Charismatic Pentecostalism caused some disagreement within the Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel congregation since Lonnie Frisbee seemed focused more on gaining converts and experiencing "supernatural manifestations" than on teaching newer converts Biblical doctrine.

Lonnie Frisbee sought out some of the stranger elements of Charismatic Pentecostalism, especially in the practices of dramatic "supernatural manifestations" like being slain in the spirit, bizarre 'miracles', and ecstatic utterance which Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and others attribute of an "anointing" by the Holy Spirit.

The fellowship of John Wimber embraces Lonnie Frisbee to heal him.

Lonnie Frisbee confuses John Wimber.

John Wimber and Lonnie Frisbee break with Calvary Chapel and found the Vineyard Association.

"Lonnie Frisbee asked people 25 and under to come forward, so probably 300 or so go forward. He just says the words 'Holy Spirit, Come'. Almost immediately, everybody just fell on the floor. They were sort of like trees in a forest falling on each other. It wasn't a clean thing. One of the kids, Ricky, when he fell to the floor, he pulled the microphone down. A lot of them started Speaking in Tongues, others were crying. But the sound was shocking and I didn't know what to do. I stared at this thing. I didn't know Lonnie. John was shocked. John was trying to figure out what was going on. A lot of people got up and left." - Bob Fulton, Vineyard leader

"Though little credit is given to Lonnie Frisbee, he was influential in what the Vineyard movement called "Signs and Wonders" – a model of teaching that suggest that all Christians could operate in a similar manner as Lonnie Frisbee; that they too could perform miracles like they'd read in the New Testament." - DiSabatino

"Most assuredly, the counterfeit transferable anointing Lonnie Frisbee practiced was heretical and has nothing to do with the biblical reality of the Holy Spirit. Sadly, Lonnie Frisbee's "Christian" life is riddled with erroneous belief and what can best be described as counterfeit signs and wonders associated with false revival and the presence of sexual immorality." - Steve Mitchell Power

Lonnie Frisbee practiced homosexuality before, during and after his religious career.

"At the end of the marriage he told me that he had been staying late in some gay bars." - Connie Bremer-Murray, Lonnie Frisbee's ex-wife

"I got a telephone call one day that this young man who was in the church here at Laguna Beach was feeling really bad, really convicted, really guilty and he confided in his pastor that he had had a six-month affair with Lonnie." - Chuck Smith, Jr.

"The kingdom of Satan has stronger demons. I just think that homosexuality is a stronger demon." - Bob Fulton, Vineyard spokesman

"Lonnie's misfortune is he got caught because there are a lot of Charismatic homosexual ministers right now. I'm not saying that it's okay as long as you don't get caught. I'm saying we need to find a way for them, find a way within the Body of Christ to minister and accommodate them." - Chuck Smith, Jr.

"It was many years I didn't see Lonnie, and when I did the thing I was most impressed by was, 'cuz you're going for the truth here, how bitter he was. Lonnie would just come in and it was almost like a person who didn't have personal restraint. Lonnie would just go off on how he had been used and abused and trashed. You know, kind of pathetic in a way." - Chuck Girard

Lonnie Frisbee claimed he had been sexually abused as a child.

Lonnie Frisbee dies of AIDS.

"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination." - Leviticus 20:13

"Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due." - Romans 1:27

"No one who lives deeply in Christ makes a practice of sin. Those who continue to sin have neither seen Christ nor known Christ." - 1 John 3:6

"The Bible does not allow for both as simultaneous coexistent realities. While saints still sin, the Bible clearly teaches that they do not practice sin as a lifestyle." - Steve Mitchell Power

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
