Jesus Taught Fruit or Fire

Who Cuts Off The Fruitless Branches From Christ

One of the most misunderstood teachings from the Lord Jesus is this one. It could be rightly called his fruit or fire teaching! fruit or fireThis passage is clear and to the point, but false teachers have twisted these Scriptures and denied their clarity to preserve the heresy of eternal security. You are about to be stirred. Jesus said:
1 John 15:1,2 I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. (John 15:1,2)
Fruit or fire! Jesus is the vine, Christians are the branches and the Heavenly Father is the gardenerThe Father cuts away the fruitless branches from the life-sustaining vine because of not bearing fruit and prunes the branches that are fruitful so they can be even more fruitful. (Clearly, God wants fruit and such is a vital requirement of remaining in the vine—staying saved. Remember, it's fruit or fire.)
NOTE: Jesus said the fruitless branches were in me. Hence, they were saved at one point. This should end the once saved always saved slogan in His grip, referring to an unconditional security and being safe in sin, fruitlessness, etc. Clearly, that is not an accurate understanding of the Heavenly Father.

Find Out About Spiritual Good To Survive Rough Times Of Persecution

1 John 15:3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. (John 15:3)
Jesus is clearly speaking to those who had been forgiven (spiritually cleansed). It is the same ones who got this life or death warning about bearing fruit. The forgiven are the branches. The word of God brought that about. We are born again through the word of God. Peter wrote:
For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. (1 Pet 1:23)
God's word is imperishable, living and enduring. It must go forth for others to get born again.
1 John 15:4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. (John 15:4)
God's sovereign will is for all the branches to remain in the vine, but the same God will also cut those same branches off if, through their own negligence, they become unfruitfulIf we remainin the vine, the vine will remain in us. It is up to us to remain in him and for our benefit to obey this command to remain. A Christian must remain in Christ (the vine) to be fruitful—the only source of spiritual life.
1 John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. IF a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
Again, Jesus mentions his relationship to his followers is as a vine to branches which can be cut off. For the branches to get pruned by the gardener will enable them to bear more fruit. In other words, if a branch survives the gardener’s inspection and doesn’t get cut off but just pruned, it will be very fruitful.
If a pruned branch could speak, certainly it would say the pruning was painful. Perhaps some of the painful things that occur to fruitful Christians are part of the pruning process.

The Fruit or Fire Warning Is Real

Fruit or FIRE
1 John 15:6If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. (John 15:6)
Jesus is clearly speaking about those who don’t remain (or continue) in Christ—the Christians FruitLESS Christians will be thrown into the FIRE.who don’t produce good fruit, and therefore, get cut off by the Father. For them, as with us, it is fruit or fire! They died spiritually. The ones cut off were not never really saved people, as the once saved always saved teachers might want us to believe. Instead, they were initially in the vine, that is, in Christ, the same as the other branches which continued in the vine. Both types of branches had the same opportunity to be fruitful.
The cut off branches withered after being severed from the vine, just like what we would observe in the natural. See also Lk. 8:6. For a branch to wither (or die) shows it had life in it before then or it would be impossible for it to wither. Things that are dead and lifeless, such as a rock, cannot wither. 
Those branches are sustained by their connection to the vine. The cut off branches (Christians who lost their salvation over fruitlessness) die spiritually and get thrown into the fire. Remember, it is fruit or fire. Their destiny is much different from the branches who remain in and with the vine. The branches remaining in the vine continue to live because of the vine. This is just like:
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. (1 John 5:12)
Jesus is eternal life. It is impossible to have eternal life if we are don’t have Jesus.
1 John 15:7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. (John 15:7)
Verse 7 is a special prayer promise for the fruitful Christians—the ones who don’t get cut off. Such are commanded to ask (God) and it will be given to them. (A Christian who has God’s word remaining in him is not going to ask for things outside God’s will.)
1 John 15:8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. (John 15:8)
The Father is glorified by fruitfulness. That is also how one can be recognized as a disciple of Christ. This alone destroys the teaching of once saved always saved. Heretic Charles Stanley teaches the opposite of the Lord Jesus:
... a Christian who at no point in his entire life bore any eternal fruit. And yet his salvation is never jeopardized (Eternal Security: Can You Be Sure, p.121).
A fruitless person will be damned to hell, according to Jesus. It is fruit or fire!

Examine Yourselves: Are You Still In the Faith?

A commonly cited passage about examining yourselves to see if professing Christians are in the Christian faith, is 2 Cor. 13:5. It has consistently been misused in regards to the false convert or tare!
examine yourselvesThat MISinterpretation of 2 Cor. 13:5 is consistent with the HERETICAL theology of eternal security and once saved always saved, but has nothing to do with the way it was originally used or meant by the recipients. Again, it is error to cite 2 Cor. 13:5 for the false convert – one who was never saved and lacked genuine saving faith. Calvinist John MacArthur has often cited this Scripture in that way, distorting Paul’s godly concern mentioned in that passage for real Christians!
The context of 2 Cor. 13:5 extends back several chapters to chapter 11.Remember, when the books that we now call the Bible were originally written, they lacked chapter and verse divisions. Though 2 Cor. 13:5 is the focus here, the initial concern came from the Corinthian Christians listening to dangerous false teachers and getting deceived!
But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.  (2 Cor 11:3,4)
Christians endanger themselves with deadly doctrinal deception by listening to false teachers! Hence, the saints are commanded to keep away from false teachers to prevent doctrinal DECEPTION (Rom. 16:17,18). With all of that in mind, carefully read 2 Cor. 13:5 from three translations:
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you–unless, of course, you fail the test?  (2 Cor 13:5, NIV)
Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you-unless indeed you fail the test? (2 Cor. 13:5, NASB)
Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?–unless indeed you fail to meet the test! (2 Cor. 13:5, ESV)
Because of listening to false teachers there existed a definite danger that the Corinthians would be deceived and no longer realize that Jesus Christ was in them, making the Christians the temples of God. According to 2 Cor. 11:3,4, false teachers were preaching “another Jesus,” that is, a FALSE and mythical Jesus Christ, not the real one of the bible, who is capable of simultaneously residing in many Christians (Col. 1:27), suggesting the omnipresence of Jesus Christ. That unique attribute alone makes the Jehovah’s Witness belief that Jesus is Michael the archangel fallacious.
When Paul wrote, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith” it was a doctrinal test about Jesus being in Christians! Such has nothing to do with initial salvation or a false conversion, and therefore, the common interpretation of 2 Cor. 11:5 has been terribly distorted, denying an ever-present danger for Christians through false teachings! They were to examine themselves doctrinally to see if they were still in the faith unlike the ones lethally deceived doctrinally by Hymenaeus and Philetus and had their saving faith destroyed (2 Tim. 2:17,18). So 2 Cor. 13:5 has nothing to do with initial salvation or false converts. Remember that. It refers to Christians evaluating themselves (not someone else) to see if they themselves are still in the Christian faith or not (becoming an apostate) over a simple doctrinal test about Jesus!
Remember also that Calvinists think election is secret, meaning no one can really know if another is saved or not! That is blatant error (1 John 3:10; 2:3,4) and protects the demonic notion that there are two types of adulterers, two types of drunks, two types of thieves, etc. — one being saved and the other never saved even though both types of adulterers, drunks, thieves, etc. are doing the same detestable things! [Charles Stanley would call such a person that was once saved a carnal Christian!]

The History of the Deceiver John MacArthur

The History Of The Wolf Known As John MacArthur

Brothers and sisters, if you have followed my posts you know I believe it is foolish to trust any teacher you do not know well. This can only happen in a small church or gathering as the early church did. Satan has seeded the pulpits with his men and women. This goes back all the way to Paul's warning that after he departed, wolves would come in to the Church. With their great wealth, they are now dominating the pulpits and air ways. 

Following is history of the wolf known as John MacArthur. 




Welcome to The Watchman Wakes In Vain.  This is a ministry to the body of Jesus Christ.  There is much information on this website about John Macarthur who I believe is a dangerous wolf in sheep's clothes.  I have tried with this website to expose John Macarthur because I believe that his long-planned and ultimate goal is to trick young Christians into taking the Mark of the Beast.    

For foundational reading regarding John Macarthur I would suggest that Christians start with The Transformation of John Macarthur's Grace Community Church.  There are also other articles on this website about John Macarthur that will support the facts in the "Transformation" article.  I have also divided the "Transformation" article into many other smaller articles on this website (if you find yourself reading the same article twice).

On this website I've tried to be faithful to God in conveying to Christians the truths that He has led me to regarding John Macarthur as well as to other matters that may be of concern to Christians.  I thank you for your indulgence.

Bob Johnson        

(Each title in blue, links to further documentation that supports Bob Johnson's statements.)


The goal of the ecumenical movement is to create a one-world religion for the worship of Lucifer. Ecumenists (bridge-builders) in the leadership of the various denominations direct the churches to set aside their differences, find common ground, and unify. John Macarthur preaches against ecumenism, however, his family and ministry are firmly rooted in the ecumenical movement.

John Macarthur’s father, Dr. Jack Macarthur, who was close friends with high ranking Masons, belonged to the inner circle of Henrietta Mears which launched Fuller Theological Seminary, the National Association of Evangelicals, the US Center for World Missions, and the global ecumenical network of apostate evangelical organizations that are leading multitudes into the One World Religion of the Antichrist.   


At his father's request, John Macarthur attended Talbot Theological Seminary "just because of him [Rabbi Charles Feinberg], to be my mentor, my professor and [to take] every course that he offered." 


The suppression of information regarding the existence and membership of the Council for National Policy has been a major factor in deceiving Christians. The Council for National Policy evolved from the John Birch Society (JBS). The JBS was founded by Robert Welch, a 32nd degree Mason, and an agent for Nelson Rockefeller. “Welch, being a well proven 32nd degree Mason, jumped at the chance to aide and abet in the furtherance of the destruction of Christianity.” The JBS was exposed in 1977 in a report titled The Belmont Brotherhood. “This 12-page report concluded with the perceptive observation that the John Birch Society represents the most diabolical form of the Illuminati conspiracy.” Once exposed, the JBS morphed into the Council for National Policy.


John Macarthur's father was in Henrietta Mears' inner circle which launched the global ecumenical movement.  John Macarthur's alma mater, Talbot School of Theology, boasts that Mears "integrated much of the contemporary educational thought of John Dewey and others regarding student needs and learning process with the timeless content of Scripture."  John Dewey was a communist.  John Macarthur now sends his Children's Ministry to Forest Home, the camp Henrietta Mears founded.

"Forum attendees included members of the state legislature, judges, representatives from the County of Los Angeles as well as church and business leaders. They concluded the forum by asking questions on such issues such as...reformation of the U.S. court system."

"God has granted us the freedom to become everything we can become. The world is packed with riches but they must be mined out. This has always been the enterprise of man."-John Macarthur speaking at the AEI-TMC Forum

The Master's College, through the development of the Master’s Institute on Public Issues (a permanent entity within TMC), has entered a long-term partnership with the AEI in order to discuss the "role of Christians" in "shaping the future of public policy in the US." 

The American Enterprise Institute dictates policy to the United States government. The AEI leadership is comprised of Bilderbergers, CFR members, the former Governor of the Federal Reserve System, the former President of the World Bank, Trilateral Commission members, United Nations representatives...

Many of the radio stations that broadcast Macarthur's Grace To You are owned by Salem Communications. Salem Communications is directed by men who are members of the Council for National Policy.  

"...five directors of Salem Communications Company are or have been officers and directors of Council for National Policy..."

Dr. R Albert Mohler, a keynote speaker at John Macarthur's annual Pastors' Conference, holds leadership positions in two NGO's of the United Nations, has signed The Manhattan Declaration, and is subordinate to a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Dr. Mark Dever, another speaker at John Macarthur's Pastors' Conference, once dismissed 256 members of his own church for being inadaptable to his change program.

John Macarthur’s host, Greg Laurie, who sits on the board of the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, is a big supporter of the Purpose Driven movement. Greg Laurie believes the Purpose Driven movement is of God. Click here to see a picture of Laurie sitting with Rick Warren at his Harvest Crusade.

Few know that Pastor John Macarthur of Grace Community Church not only claims to have seen Dr. King's shed blood just hours after his assassination but also claims to have been in the very bathroom from which authorities say the fatal shots were fired. How did John Macarthur gain access to these most important crime scenes? And who is John Perkins?

James MacDonald has also signed The Manhattan Declaration.  His Harvest Bible Fellowship has admitted that their ministries are a TRICK! "Our men's and women's and student ministry is a TRICK to get them into small groups." To read why these ministries are a trick, then click here.

See that John Macarthur has had Purpose Driven ministries flourishing at Grace Community Church for years and that he has conformed his ministries to the Leadership Network's structure and agenda.  Learn about just two of John Macarthur's globalist, communitarian friends, Al Mohler and Mark Dever.    

"In partnering with a foreign government in a housing development project, John Macarthur’s Grace Church, through TMAI Brazil, is finding its proper place and function within Peter Drucker’s Communitarian partnership (New World Order)."

John Macarthur's ministry in Honduras is called MEDA. The Vice President of Honduras, being surrounded by military men and secret police, has on at least two occasions visited MEDA. On another occasion a colonel from a local military base paid a visit to MEDA.  

When the Vice President of Honduras visited MEDA, he thanked MEDA "for its willingness to serve." The President of Honduras at the time of this visit was Manuel Zelaya. Zelaya had a close alliance with communist leaders:

"Political opponents, particularly business elites, opposed his foreign policy, including his alliance with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, and friendship with Cuba's Raul Castro."

President Zelaya interceded with the Cuban government in order to obtain permission for Cubans to attend a conference at MEDA in order to be trained to lead "cell churches" upon their return to Cuba. 

What service is John Macarthur's training center performing in Honduras that has earned the thanks of its government?

John Macarthur's South African pastor is a leader of a Baptist World Alliance (United Nations-NGO) member organization.  His Russian head pastor and host church are also connected to the Baptist World Alliance.

The Baptist Association of El Salvador is a member of the World Council of Churches.  “The World Council of Churches has jettisoned traditional Christian missionary activity and substituted political action designed to establish a new kind of world order.”

Globeworks International "an international, interdenominational Christian mission...building a network of experienced, effective national leaders...The VISION for Globeworks is, in a word: partnering.”

Note how John Macarthur connects to the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Council for National Policy​, the American Enterprise Institute, the Leadership Network, the Southern Baptist Convention, Freemasonry, and Rick Warren among others. 


The goal of The Leadership Network is to train leaders who will transform churches within networks that will serve the communitarian system (government/business/social sector merger). In this "new paradigm," church leaders, having received training in group facilitation skills (what the Grace Advance leadership calls "dynamic instruction" and "rich dialogical interaction"), have become change agents ready to affect social change in their communities.

What does the future hold for John Macarthur's worldwide The Master's Academy International centers? I have reason to believe the centers are now being formed into a Leadership Community.  The formation of Leadership Communities is part of the global transformation process promoted by the Leadership Network, a primary organization manipulating the churches into the communitarian partnership.


See that John Macarthur's singles ministries were based on Rick Warren's Purpose Driven model.

"I have been asked on three occasions by the leaders of GCC to come into a ministry and be an agent of each of these cases that change has included casting a fresh vision, defining a new ministry culture and promote [sic] positive change." Kurt Gebhards, John Macarthur's Purpose Driven pastor

"The Church is now victim of a second attack against her, in the rampant Socialism and Sovietism that have been thrust upon her in the name of flabby and unmoral theories of 'brotherhood' and in an appeal to her 'fairness.' The church has been made to believe that she is a forum for discussion and not a high place for annunciation."

"First of all don't become antagonistic, cantankerous, rebellious against the leadership of your church because they had a 40 days thing."  “We're not trying to create a firestorm here, you know, launched from Grace To You to people who can go in and disturb the tranquility of their churches [churches that have adopted the 40 Days program].”

"I do see many transformation philosophies that echo Rick Warren or hybrid it…PD movement has infiltrated Grace Church under a different name or disguise…though perhaps only a partial disguise if PDL book was actually used or was only temporarily used…"

​More than 3 years ago Pastor John Coleman and Dr. Robert Klenck stated on their radio show that John Macarthur’s The Guild and The Foundry were both ministries following the Purpose Driven model. Dr. Klenck, who is a foremost Christian expert on the Church Growth/ Purpose Driven Movement, stated on that radio show: “Not only is it [the Purpose Driven model] there [at Grace Community Church], but it is going at full speed.”

​John Piper, whose church is hosting Rick Warren as a keynote speaker at his 2010 Desiring God conference and who has proclaimed, "at root, I think he [Rick Warren] is theologically and doctrinally sound," spoke at John Macarthur's European Bible Training Center's Shepherds' Conference in October, 2009. His speech was entitled, "Feel Christ." 


" the question is, if you're living in tribulation period, and you take this mark, in other words, you identify with the beast's empire will you still be able to be redeemed? And I think the answer to that is yes, yes..." "So I don't think the fact that someone takes that [the mark of the Beast] is a sentence to permanency..." (John Macarthur during a Q&A session at his church)

John Macarthur's deceitful teaching is conditioning Christians to be slaves of the Anti-christ.

"We don't want to get caught into this bizarre notion that somehow in the actual fluid that came out of the body of Jesus there is saving power or saving efficacy"-John Macarthur

Quotes from John Macarthur: "I believe it is a serious misunderstanding to think of the believer as having both an old and new nature. Believers do not have dual personalities...there is no such thing as an old nature in the believer."   "I'm not convinced there are two natures; I think you have one new nature that has the possibility of sinning."  But the Lord Jesus Christ had two natures, the human and the divine.

Contrary to John Macarthur's teaching, scripture indicates the Anti-christ will be a Jew.  In claiming the Antichrist will be a Muslim, and in stating that Christians can take the Mark of the Beast and still get to Heaven, John Macarthur is promoting the counterfeits that will deceive the masses during the Tribulation. 

In an article titled "Unforgivable?" written on Oct 30, 2013, Phil Johnson, the Executive Director of John Macarthur's Grace To You declared, "Though there is a stern warning against taking the mark of the Beast in Revelation 14, the sin is not categorically said to be unpardonable. (That would contradict Matthew 12:31.)"  According to Phil Johnson, taking the mark of the Beast is not unpardonable and does not constitute blasphemy against the Holy Spirit! Phil goes on to state, "Revelation 19:20 indicates that multitudes will take the mark of the Beast because they are deceived. Scripture does not say that they are thereby automatically hardened forever against repentance." Then in contradictory fashion, Phil also states, "Clearly, receiving the mark is a sin that will send those who commit it to hell." 

"MacArthur's formula...seems to be as follows: Man's obedience + man's service to Christ = SALVATION. Does not this formula indicate salvation by works? The Bible consistently teaches that salvation is not based on man's works, but on the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ."

"Did Christ actually pay the penalty for everybody's sins? And if He did pay the penalty for everyone's sins then the suffering for sin was already accomplished. How in the world could someone then have to suffer eternally for their sin?...If sinners are sent to hell to pay forever for their sins, their sins could not have been paid for by Christ on the cross."-John Macarthur

"We teach that, in the incarnation, the second person of the Trinity laid aside His right to the full prerogatives of coexistence with God, assumed the place of a Son, and took on an existence appropriate to a servant while never divesting Himself of His divine attributes." (The Master's Seminary Statement of Faith) 

"This statement implies that prior to the incarnation Christ had not assumed the place of a Son. Also it implies that Christ did not assume the role of a Son until the incarnation. However, the Bible teaches that Sonship is not a role that Christ played, nor is it a place that He assumed. Sonship relates to Christ’s essential identity. He has always existed as the Son; He has forever been in the bosom of the Father (John 1:18). Sonship is not something that He ever assumed."

According to John Macarthur's The Master's Seminary Statement of Faith-God: "We teach that the work of the Holy Spirit in this age began at Pentecost when He came from the Father as promised by Christ..."  But what does the Lord Jesus Christ say?

"Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." (John 16:7)

"John MacArthur hosts a youth conference which is called the 'Resolved Conference.' Thousands of young people attend and listen to Christian lyrics sung to the heavy drum beat of rock music. There is no question that rock music is accepted and approved by John MacArthur and his church." 


Why was John Macarthur's father, Dr. Jack Macarthur, a "close personal friend" with a high ranking Freemason? Was Jack Macarthur also a high ranking Freemason? And why are Freemasons posing as Christians?  

The logos for both John Macarthur's Grace To You and The Master's College are masonic/occult symbols. 

Most Christians are unaware that the directional compass is an important device used in ritual high magic.  The compass shown at the top of John Macarthur's Outreach ministry's webpage also depicts a six-pointed star (the compass needle's alignment combined with the four coordinates). 

The first sentence of a Masonic sermon proclaims, "Masonic conduct is to adore the Grand Architect of the Universe.” Dr. Lawson states that "God is the ARCHITECT… ushering in His sovereign purposes on a GRAND scale."

"You must wear your color and chant your team name, with soap, mud, and pigs, the sports are far from tame."


For "denying himself and picking up his cross" part time, John Macarthur earns more than the President of the United States. 

John Macarthur's "Grace To You," financed with Christian donations, pays a corporation solely owned by his son-in-law, approximately $700,000 per year for its services.  


PHIL: So you’re saying...are you saying it would be difficult for you to put your finger on when your conversion took place? 

JOHN [Macarthur]: Yeah. I’ve never been able to do that. And it doesn’t bother me. I think I’m one of those kids...I was one of those kids that never rebelled and always believed. And so when God did His saving work in my heart, it was not discernable to me.

See how Christian church policy is determined by a satanic hierarchy, secret societies, intelligence agencies, foundations, and the United Nations.

"Evangelical churches will be the chief instrument to bring the New World Order to birth"

A Letter of Warning to Kurt Gebhards' Hickory Harvest Church, the Harvest Bible Chapel Affiliate in North Carolina: "A Church of Life Groups."  "Our men’s and women’s and student ministry is a TRICK to get them into small groups”  In fact, the entire agenda at Harvest Bible Fellowship is a Satanic trick.  

​The church growth movement is magic and mind control cloaked as Christianity.  Group member interaction (also known as group dynamics) in churches infiltrated by the church growth movement is often referred to by church growth change agents as “synergy” or “synergy of energy.” The meaning or definition of group synergy is that the “group mind,” taken as an entity, is something different and greater than the sum of the minds of the individual group members. Its formation is often depicted by the equation, 2+2=5. What church growth change agents don’t explain is where the extra “one” in this equation comes from. It comes from the influence of the group demon which has been invoked. This group/team demon is called an “egregore.”

The Manhattan Declaration, drafted by a member of the Council on Foreign Relations who serves UNESCO, and signed in Oct/Nov 2009, is an Evangelical/Roman Catholic/Eastern Orthodox manifesto which represents another ecumenical (bridge-building) milestone toward the final goal of creating a one-world religion for the worship of Lucifer. The dialectical process had been utilized in achieving this ecumenical unity as diversity was able to set aside its theological differences and find common ground on three social issues: life, marriage, and liberty.

Drug Terminology at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church 

Saddleback's college-age ministry is called Crave. This ministry meets at The Refinery. Crave's weekly e-news is called The Fix. With a craving for drugs comes the need for a fix (slang for an intravenous injection of a drug, esp heroin). Refineries process opium into heroin. 

Rick Warren's Junior High ministry at Saddleback is called Wildside
