Four Books That the Enemy Has Used To Corrupt Christianity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

The four books that have changed the church by giving an introduction to the false teachings of the New Apostolic/Latter Rain (NAR), the Emerging Church/Contemplative/Catholic Mysticism (EC), pragmatic Church Growth (CG) methodologies of C. Peter Wagner, Robert Schuller and Peter Drucker, and the teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People (WCGIP) are as follows:

Surprised by the Power of the Spirit by Jack Deer, Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster, Purpose Driven Church by Rick Warren & Etnerity In Their Hearts by Don Richardson.

 These four books were widely read by Christians from virtually every denominational background before their ramifications and the movements they would spawn were known.  They lay error alongside truth so were considered not to be a threat to churches.  Therefore these books then became part of the consciousness of many Christians and churches, thereby laying the basis for the introduction of the modern day false teachings of the NAR, EC, CG and WCGIP that have become part of the landscape of Christendom today.

Night Marchers and UFOs on the Big Island 
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

With the resurgence of the old religion of Hawaii and the continual invocation of Pelé and other "deities" for years in the secular culture and even in churches with regards to worshipping 'Io, is it any wonder that those beings are beginning to manifest again?  In a story called "Night Marchers" on the Kawaihae site and in a YouTube video on the same subject, eyewitnesses claim all kinds of sightings that they think are the warriors, ancestors and demi-gods of Hawaii coming back.  Interestingly the first book the Hawaiian Heritage site recommends in its "Suggested Reading" list is "Perpetuated in Righteousness" by Daniel Kikawa that we reviewed in our book "Idolatry In Their Hearts" by Sandy Simpson and Mike Oppenheimer. Since Kikawa claims that 'Io is the True God and one that the Hawaiians worshipped in secret, we have to wonder if Kikawa also thinks 'Io is showing up in these night marches? Since YWAM, Aloha Ke Akua and Hilo New Hope participated in worshipping 'Io at the "edge of Hale-ma'uma'u Crater" it sounds like they have all been inviting the old "gods" to return to Hawaii.

"They Will Believe 
The Lie"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am doing a Bible study right now on what I would call "renewing our minds".  It is based on this verse:

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.

The only way to renew our minds is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, confess our sins, and be saved, then to study the written Word and allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to teach us.  Our minds are corrupted by virtue of the sin nature and what we have learned in life because our filters are off. I gave an illustration of straining coconut to make coconut milk.  If you use a 1 inch screen everything will pass through.  Even if you use a quarter inch screen you will get mostly coconut meat in your milk.  You have to use a fine screen in order to separate the milk from the leftover.  Our filters are off and the first thing God begins to do is correct our worldview, because if your worldview is off you will not understand God's reality.  We need to learn to see things from His perspective.  This is why I started this study by going back to an original problem.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

This has always been an interesting passage to me for a few different reasons.  What is "the lie" that is talked about here in verse 9 and 11?  What are the ways that "wickedness deceives those who are perishing" and how long has this been going on or does this only begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one?  In what way does "the lie" cause those who do not believe the truth to "delight in wickedness"?

The First Nations Movement
Deceiving The Nations!
4-DVD Series

Critical Missiological Issue!

The "Indigenous People's" (IPM) or "First Nations" movement is an unbiblical movement teaching heresies and doctrines of demons. It is being spread worldwide by YWAM, Don Richardson, John Dawson, Richard Twiss, Terry LeBlanc, Daniel Kikawa and many other adherents.  The IPM or World Christian Gathering On Indigenous People is full of the false teachings of the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Word-Faith, Dominionism, Latter Rain and many other false theological systems.  But it does have it's own distinctives that are driven by the works of Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twiss, and Don Richardson in particular.  They are teaching Christians to "redeem" their cultures by worshipping their former gods, pretending they are YHWH.

"Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article: "Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura

There are a number of the leadership of the Emerging Church (EC) who do not believe that the Bible is the highest authority for the Christian faith.  Most do not believe that the Bible is inerrant in the original manuscripts and many do not acknowledge that the Bible is our highest revelation.  Yet this is a core doctrine over which true believers and false brethren must separate. Those who try to poke holes in Sola Scriptura make excuses like (1) we need to reinterpret the Bible through the lens of postmodern culture and religion (2) the Bible never uses the words "Sola Scriptura" therefore it is not a Biblical concept (3) there is new revelation for the church through the Holy Spirit apart from what is written and the precepts of the Bible and (4) the Bible just doesn't address our postmodern situation therefore we cannot rely on it for the truth and answers for our problems today.  I will prove that all the above arguments, and more, from EC leaders and others is exactly what they are teaching.  I will give you quotes from their teachings, videos and books. The postmodern church and its "movements" are abandoning Sola Scriptura in their rush to be like the Roman Catholic Church, which takes its authority from a mix of Scripture and tradition.

"As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, "does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with EQUAL sentiments of devotion and reverence." (Roman Catholic Catechism, Given October 11, 1992, the thirtieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, in the fourteenth year of my Pontificate. Page 31).

Updated DVD!
The Question Of Dominion
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article: The Question Of Dominion.

I am writing this article as an apologetic against the Third Wave, Latter Rain, Word of Faith and Reformed Theology teachings that the Church is to rise up and take over the systems of government, businesses and every other aspect of life. "See, the problem is, is that Satan has had too much of his way in our society because he has a government!  And the only way to overthrow a government is with a government.  It won't happen otherwise.  So therefore the government of the church has to get into place in the extended church just like we do have it very well in place, we haven't reached our goal yet ..."  (Transcript of C. Peter Wagner, Arise Prophetic Conference, Gateway Church, San Jose, CA, 10-10-2004) Wagner has substituted the "government of the church" for the coming government of Jesus Christ in the Millennial Kingdom.  Wagner is "Kingdom Now" while the Bible teaches "Kingdom Come". What I wanted to do with this article is put the issue of dominion to rest by studying the definition the Bible gives to dominion and ruling authority.  When we look at the subject we can easily ascertain what is going on today and what God requires of the Church.

Shepherd Or Hireling?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the article: "Shepherd Or Hireling?"

The Bible lays out the definitions of both an overseer (under shepherd) and a hireling.  John 10:11-13  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. (KJV)  1 Tim. 3:1-3   Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. (NIV)  Titus 1:7-13  Since an overseer is entrusted with God's work, he must be blameless, not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach - and that for the sake of dishonest gain. Even one of their own prophets has said, "Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons." This testimony is true. Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. (NIV) A hireling does not really care about being a watchman, but is more concerned with protecting his reputation, position and income.  A true watchman will guard the flock against wolves from within (Acts 20:30) and without (Acts 20:29) no matter the cost to his reputation, position or income. Following is a little quiz you can take to see if you are a true Biblical under shepherd as a leader in your church, are becoming a hireling, or are one now.

Testing Music In The Church
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on these articles: Testing Music In The Church, Testing Music In The Church-Part 2, and Worship Song Ratings.

Too many churches today are allowing music to be used in their services that is not glorifying to the Lord and can actually be a hindrance to the teaching of sound doctrine. Pastors and leaders should be using their leadership role to test what is being played and sung in their churches. Though some are quick to test preaching and teaching from their pulpits, many ignore the music being used in the same services. This is a tragic mistake. Music is a powerful medium. It is something that effects deeply the body, mind and emotions. It is a proven fact that music often stays with a person far longer than what is taught or preached. Songs roam around in our heads, especially if the melody appeals to us. What is often overlooked is the serious impression music makes on people, and the teaching they are getting over and over again as they allow the song to repeat in their minds and on their lips. Music teaches things much more subtly yet sometimes far more effectively. That's why the lyrical content of music in the church, as well as its effect on the spiritual lives of those who perform and listen, should be vigorously examined by the leaders of the church.  This is a 2-DVD set.

Examine Yourselves & Hold On!
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the articles "Examine Yourself To See If You Are In The Faith" and "Hold On!"

2 Cor. 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.
Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you - unless, of course, you fail the test?

People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things.  If they do not then they fail the test of faith.  They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security.  Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2).  God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not.  His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ.  We are not God and we do not have His omniscience.  Therefore, according to Paul, we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth.  I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word.  Let me be clear. There is only one way to salvation.  That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.

"Blasphemizing" The Bible
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am going to go over an article I wrote back in 2006 in preparation for the book I wrote with Mike Oppenheimer called 
â€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Å“Idolatry in Their Hearts'.  This book is an apologetic against the false teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement, the Emerging Church and the New Apostolic Reformation which got their ideas from the book â€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Å“Eternity in Their Hearts" by Don Richardson.  At the time that book came out no one really saw the dangerous ideas Richardson was promoting.  All they would have had to do was look at the two subtitles of that book to understand the implications.  The first subtitle in the 1981 edition read: The Untold Story of Christianity among Folk Religions of Ancient People.  Those who read this book found some interesting cross-cultural ideas but apparently missed the false premise of the book starting with the subtitle. How could Christianity be â€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Å“among folk religions" where the Gospel had not been preached (Rom. 10:14-15)? At that time Christians who read the book were apparently satisfied that, though there was some questionable material present, it made for an interesting discussion on how to do cross-cultural ministry. The subtitle it has today, which was first published in 1984, is as follows: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the World.  This should have been a red flag for many Christians but then, who reads subtitles?  But how could the â€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Å“One True God" be known to Gentiles who, the Bible states, did â€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€Å“not know God"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂť.

Resources For Pastors
including
"Good English Bible Translations"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I was talking with a pastor after a Wednesday night service and he mentioned that I said I had done an article comparing English Bible translations.  He called me up later and asked me to come back and present the contents of that article I sent out in about 2002 to my mailing list for the Pacific Waves Newsletter which, unfortunately, I can no longer afford to publish and mail.  However an archive of past issues of that newsletter can be found here. In that article I detailed a number of good and bad resources for pastors including Bible translations, concordances, commentaries, Bible dictionaries, etc.  I present an edited version of part of that article on this DVD, particularly dealing with English Translations of the Bible.  Translation is a very detailed endeavor and should only be undertaken by those with a proper education in that subject and a sound doctrinal background.  I read a few books on that subject and it helped me understand the complexities involved.  Hebrew is a rich language so it is hard to distill one Hebrew word down to one English word.  Greek is a very technical language and it is also not easy to translate.  This is why it is imperative to use the good English translations out there for comparison along with a good concordance and Bible dictionary.

A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS
Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place.  I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom".

From Church To Emerging Church DVD Series
by Sandy Simpson
The issue of the Emerging Church and it's introduction into many churches and mission organizations has reached a critical point.  Many do not undersand what is being leavened into churches by the EC leadership.  Many would be shocked to know their belief systems involve Universalism, New Age, defense of postmodernism, Interfaithism, and many other false doctrines.  In order to reach out to this generation the EC leadership is proposing a whole new "map" to deal with what they perceive is a lack of understanding on the part of the churches on how to communicate.  EC proponants believe the "scripture" for today is evolving and must change in order to reach postmoderns.

Idolatry In Their Hearts
Landmark Book!
by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer
Does having eternity in your heart mean that you know God and are His child? Could Gentile cultures understand the Gospel from the stars? Did God create man's cultures? Has God always been in the process of redeeming cultures from the time of Babel by placing in them a true revelation of Himself? Is there the worship of YHWH in all cultures and religions through the names of supreme beings?  Have all cultures always had a way to make things right between them and God? These questions and many more are answered in this book that addresses the false teachings of The New Apostolic Reformation regarding missiological methods as being carried out by many agencies including the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People, YWAM, and many Bible societies.

Lessons In Forgiveness
Great Study!
by Sandy Simpson

Through the years I have been presented with many opportunities to forgive. Sometimes the situation was so severe that it took me some time to forgive and start the process of healing for myself, and eventually for others. I learned that a Christian needs to forgive other people even if they have not repented of their sins. That can be really hard if we let it be hard. But if we give our burdens over to the Lord, He will carry them and that frees us up to treat other people with love, compassion, and be in the right frame of mind and heart to set them up for reconciliation with Jesus Christ. That does not mean we tolerate their sin. We simply forgive them for what they have done to us, whether perceived or real, and move on to looking for ways to redeem them. We can then present to them the "truth in love" even when we have to rebuke them.

(1) Spiritual Authority: The Word And The Testimony by A.W. Tozer, 1950

Read this devotional thought, written around a half century ago, for the reason we should continue to say today "to the word and to the testimony"! "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies ..." 2 Pet. 2:1

(2) False Prophecy by Dean & Laura VanDruff, 1996
"As spiritual adultery increases in the church, false prophets will flourish as highly sought after speakers, and as Christians accept more of these false teachings indiscriminately, many will fall away, believing in a phony "faith". Since we have been warned, it might be wise to seek insight into how to discern false prophecy - what are false prophets likely to say? What are they like?"

(3) The Kansas City Prophets by Bob Hunter, 1995
An expose' of the Kansas City Prophets including Paul Cain, Bob Jones, John Paul Jackson and other false prophets. Their prophesies catapulted the Toronto "Blessing" and subsequent Pensacola "Outpouring" into existence. These men are revered as prophets by these movements who view themselves as Joel's Army.

(4) False Prophets by Dr. Kenneth Johnson, 1994
"When a false prophet is caught he will say “OK. But I’ve repented and the LORD has restored me to the office of the prophet or ‘The Prophetic’. You have to obey me again now.” This is why the LORD said you shall never be afraid of (listen to) him again. Yes, the LORD will forgive him if he repents. He may become a fine Bible teacher. The LORD is merciful, so that you will not be constantly fooled by false prophets, Because He will never use him in that way again. "

(5) John Kilpatrick Of Brownsville AOG, Pensacola, FL Is Now OFFICIALLY A False Prophet!
July 4, 1997 has come and gone and Hank Hanegraaff is still alive and his ministry is doing fine. Here is how Hanegraaff responded to this ugly false prophecy. Brothers and sisters in Christ -- now is the time to decide. For those of you attending Brownsville "Outpouring" meetings in Pensacola ... are you going to continue to willingly sit under the teaching and prophecy of this man in this church or allow people under your accountability to do so? Is the Assemblies of God going to take scripturally appropriate action in this matter? Here is their official response when asked recently to comment on the Pensacola "Outpouring" in a letter from Thomas E. Trask, General Superintendant of the Assmeblies Of God. What about the rest of the false teaching and prophecy of this "counterfeit" revival movement? Check out my compilation of quotes in an article called "By Your Words" - Quotes From Third Wave Leaders" for just a small dose of the false teaching from the leaders of this movement. It's time to take a stand on this matter, fellow Christians! Time to be counted. No more wishy-washy "well, there are good and bad things in this movement but it's basically good" or "I'd rather see the devil and flesh manifested in church than nothing discernable happening at all". This is not an issue that can be "balanced" away by a good old American sense of "fair play". We as Christians are to hold to the objective truth of God's Word, or else we cannot call ourselves Christians. It's time for the true body of Christ to be heard on this matter. Where is the outcry? Where is the indignation that this man has dared to make false prophesies about the demise of a fellow Christian and attribute them to a conversation he had with God Almighty? Has the Christian community been silenced in fear of being labeled "mockers" by Steve Hill in his book "The God Mockers" when, in fact, all Christians should hold to and defend sound doctrine as did the Bereans when they tested what was being taught to them? Where is the disgust at the fact that Kilpatrick made a deceitful apology denying that he prophesied and published it all over the Internet? Where is the outrage that he now continues to spread false stories in his church about Hank Hanegraaff? Where is the ire of God's people when this man dared to presume to order God around by speaking false "proclamations" "into God's ears"? What is your response, people of God? We had better start cleaning house before thousands of children and youth are exposed to the ugly manifestations, deceitful testimonies, false teaching and false prophecy of this "counterfeit" revival movement!

(6) Benny Hinn and Necromancy (Talking to the Dead) by Joseph R. Chambers, 1997
Benny Hinn "stated clearly that he had seen saints ("dead saints") and that they talked to him, gave him instructions, and told him they were praying for him. This is clearly necromancy or communication with the dead. He went further to state that his necromancy was Biblically supported by Jesus Christ’s experience on the Mount of Transfiguration when Moses and Elijah talked to the Lord."

(7) Kenneth Hagin by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"Literally hundreds of thousands of people are being influenced by this man's heretical teachings, which are now being propagated by his son and grandson and thousands of Rhema graduates in thousands of Rhema churches around the world. Brother Hagin has duplicated himself thousands of times over and his error is widespread. "

(8) Marilyn Hickey by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"From her school (and these others) a new generation of Word of Faith ministries is being grown, with more and more error and heresy. Remember heresy does not get better, it does not improve with age, like a fine wine. It continues to drift further and further into darkness. The only way heresy is stopped in the Church is by godly people standing up for the truth and being willing to swim upstream against what is popular. I pray you are I will be some of these people."

(9) Benny Hinn by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"Consider his teachings extremely dangerous to your spiritual health (and do not let him lay his hands on you)."

(10) The Challenging Counterfeit - A Study Of Spiritualism by Raphael Gasson,The Assemblies Of God Publishing House, Copywrite 1996
This is a book about Spiritualism and Spiritism by a man who was miraculously saved out of that movement. This is the last chapter of this book. Notice the parallels to what is going on in the Third Wave, counterfeit revival movement of today -- in the Toronto “Blessing” and Pensacola “Outpouring” churches and leaders that have received “the anointing”. It appears that the enemy has not changes his tactics too much, only that today they are being evidenced in churches that formerly considered themselves to be doctrinally sound. Connections to Spiritualism/Spiritism have been documented in the faith healers of this same time period of the early 1900s, such as William Branham and Kathryn Kuhlman. Other more recent individuals have been linked to necromancy such as Benny Hinn. The same techniques and manifestations are also now present in the counterfeit revival, including Indian-style chanting, visions where dead “Christians” appear and give advice, and ugly degrading "manifestations" of the “spirit”. Test the spirits and judge for yourself where this “new revelation” and “anointing” is coming from. This is an old book and may be out of print. However, it is still listed with the Library Of Congress and the new publisher is Logos International of Plainfield, NJ, 1979. Notice the original publisher was the Assemblies of God Publishing House. Ironic, in view of the Brownsville A/G in Pensacola, FL."

(11) Paul Crouch Issues Death Threat! by Bob Hunter, 1997
"TBN's Paul Crouch has issued a death threat against anyone who would come against the Trinity Broadcasting Network."

(12) TBN Replies to Charge of Death Threat by Bob Hunter, 1997
"In response to numerous inquiries, Trinity Broadcasting is sending out a standard reply to the charge that Paul Crouch issued a death threat against the enemies of TBN. However, did they address the issue, or avoid it by set up a strawman argument? The text of their reply, including a gif file of a standard reply, is included, along with my comments."

(13) Michael Brown's False Prophecy by Bob Hunter & Debra Bouey, 1998
"One of the foremost theologians and spokemen for the Messianic Jewish Congregation (MJC) has informed us of an embarrassing prophecy given by Dr. Brown. Given the international nature of his ministry, this spokesman wishes to remain anonymous, but reader inquiries related to any cited material will be forwarded to him and he will reply privately with the inquirer."

(14) The Final Quest: A Review and Critique by Eric S. Weiss, 1998
"On balance, however, I think that there is more in this book (by Rick Joyner) that readers should be warned against than encouraged to accept, and I believe that the objections and concerns I express here can be sufficiently documented from the book (and from Scripture, where appropriate) so that my criticisms won't seem unwarranted or unreasonable. Since I am primarily writing about what I perceive to be problems or errors, much here will be negative. As I've mentioned, the Christian buying public is already saying many good things about this book. The reader will have to decide if such positive acceptance is warranted."

(15) Kenneth Hagin and the Spirit of the Serpent by Joseph R. Chambers, D.D., 1998
"The final chapter of Mr. Hagin is being written even as I write this article. Our video by this title tells the whole truth. The serpent spirit has grown in his teaching and methods until I believe the real source is being made manifest. He just conducted a Kenneth Hagin Holy Ghost meeting in Chesterfield, MO. The meeting was held from October 12th to October 24th. On the third night he began to manifest this spirit with his tongue sticking out and wiggling like a serpent’s tongue. He also began to hiss. On Thursday night, as he began to hiss, many of the people began to slither down out of their seats feet first. Some of the people would hiss back at him. The emotional response of the audience is indescribable. Kenneth Hagin and many of the people became insanely "drunk."  (This link at: http://www.pawcreek.org/monthly.htm is no longer active, but you can order the video from the link above.)

(16) How can we discern false teachers? by Biblical Studies Foundation, 1998
"There are many godless guides who would lead us to the wide gate and the way which leads to destruction. These false teachers are not only blind themselves, but they lead others to destruction with them. It is the Lord Who will pronounce the final verdict and Who will sentence the false prophets to everlasting torment."

(17) Televangelist Investigations - Corruption in Televangelism and Paganism in the American Church  A speech presented Sept. 23, 1994, at the Philadelphia Conference on Cults, the Occult and the Word Faith Movement, by Ole Anthony
The lives and messages of the televangelists reveal a progressively straying path toward paganism. But God has allowed them to come to prominence so the church can see the reflection of itself in them, and repent.

(18) Questions And Answers: The Televangelist Investigations  by Ole Anthony
Paul calls for us to "Prove all things; hold fast to that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil" (I Thes. 5:21,22). The Christian message should be able to withstand any scrutiny. Believers are called to "try the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (I John 4:1). The TV evangelists have barged into our living rooms with their broadcasts and turned the spotlight on themselves. They have demanded attention, so we're giving it to them.

(19) What Benefit Is The "Prophetic Movement"? by Inner-City Christian Discernment Ministry, 1998
Ask yourself the following questions (or ask a prophet if you know one):  Has any restored prophet brought any divine insight into serious theological issues which have divided the Church? NO. Has any restored prophet brought unity to the Body of Christ due to their insights? NO. Has any restored prophet ever foretold anything of great consequence to the Church or community (warning of terrorist bombings, stock market crashes,assassinations, etc.)? NO. Has any restored prophet been called upon to locate criminals, or locate missing children, or to solve crimes? NO.  Why Not? 

(20) Kenneth Hagin - False Prophet by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1998
"Mr. Hagin has long been touted as a prophet by many within the charismatic movement for years.  Without a doubt, all people within the Word of Faith Movement look to Mr. Hagin as a genuine prophet of God.  The facts seem to indicate otherwise!  Here are three examples of Hagin's prophetic ability - all of which failed to come to pass."

(21) Sick Healers? by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1998
"Probably the saddest "cut" of all is the FACT that the majority of what the Word of Faith/Prophetic Movement charismaniacs teach does not even work in their own sorry lives. I do not deny that the Lord our God is a Healer - - - but He does so according to His sovereign will. We, His children DO NOT command healing to "be."

(22) Teach Healing? by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1998
"Got this in the mail a little while back and I thought it would be interesting for people to see that these folks at Toronto believe they can teach you how to heal the sick.  This is nothing new, because the "Happy Hunters" have been holding How to Heal the Sick Seminars for many many years.  In fact, my wife and I attended one in Ohio, and got to work directly with the Hunters. Can't you see the Apostle Paul holding a healing seminar in Ephesus (I can't)." 

(23) Was Kenneth Copeland A False Prophet? by Cross + Word, 1998
In an article entitled "My Word Of Faith Testimony" Cross + Word gives documented facts that Kenneth Copeland gave a false prophecy in Britain in June 1983.

(24) Kenneth Hagin - Another Failed Prophecy by Contenders, 1999
"Another Failed Prophecy! Kenneth Hagin Prophecy For October In July Kenneth Hagin issued a prophecy which indicates that the great revival everyone has been waiting for will begin in October after "that which has hindered shall be taken out of the way." Does this mean the removal of the critics, the rapture of the church, the "cleansing" that New Agers have spoken of? You decide."

(25) The Kansas City Prophets excerpted from "Heaven Can't Wait" by William M. Alnor, 1996
"They are leading people astray."

(26) A Mark Of False Teachers: Twisting The Scriptures by The Watchman Expositor, 1995
"The apostle Peter wrote describing Paul's epistles, "...in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction" (2 Peter 3:16). There are many individual powerful practices which characterize the methods of deception employed by false teachers, but the twisting of Scripture is universal among them."

(27) Beware The New Prophets an extract from the book by Bill Randles, 1999
Influential 'prophets' in the US are claiming to be an end-time super-army for the Lord. But their 'prophesies' are often wrong. Pentecostal pastor Bill Randles investigates . . . "One consistent characteristic of the new prophets is their insistence that the New Testament prophets do not have to be subjected to the tests of Deuteronomy (13.1-3 and 18.22)." You can order this book here.

(28) Jack Deere's Doctrinal Demise by Mr Alan Howe, 1997
"This Paper does not constitute a critique of Dr. Deere's book.  Rather, it is the setting forth of the author's doctrinal demise, primarily in his own words."

(29) Religious Psychics & The Charismatic New Wave by Joseph Chambers, 1999
"In many congregations Biblical truth has been treated lightly while social and emotional matters have demanded attention. This closing hour does not allow for such carelessness neither does it allow a light treatment of the "spirit of discernment." Those who do not have a firm and conscious hold on Biblical values and Biblical truth will not be able to survive." Part 1 & Part 2.

(30) Trinity Broadcasting Network Teachers by The Contenders, 1999
"The Word-Faith movement is far more dangerous than any of the cults because they have infiltrated the church
and leave the distinct impression with the secular world that their brand of "Christianity" truly represents Christianity.1 In truth, it represents the worst teachings ever to go under the name "Christian." It is unfortunate that Christian leaders are so afraid of Paul Crouch that they won't stand up to him, but continue to broadcast their programs on TBN or commend TBN's work. If you are a TBN supporter who thinks people like myself are causing division, read what these people say carefully, then ask
yourself, "What would a non-Christian think if TBN was his first introduction to Christianity and he heard this stuff?" On October 29th, 1999, on a CNN Chat session, Matt Crouch told me that doctrine was not important."

(31) How Do We Discern False Teachers? by Biblical Studies Foundation, 1999
"Matthew 7:13-23 - False prophets are particularly dangerous because they appear to be genuine. They seemingly have the credentials of authority. What are these credentials? Jesus calls them ‘sheep’s clothing’ (verse 15). The outward forms would incline one to believe these false prophets to be reliable guides. They may wear a distinctive garb which sets them apart as leaders. They may have  the title ‘reverend.’ They may be men who hold positions of religious leadership. They may well have graduated from a divinity school. Indeed, they might even be seminary professors. Judging on the basis of external indications we might wrongly assume them to be reliable guides, but we must not evaluate them on such external evidence."

(32) False Leaders by L. Eve Engelbrite, Cult Awareness Information Center, 1997
"Non-Christian false leaders can be divided into secular (EST, humanism, communism, etc.; example Herod in Acts 12:21-23), and religious (Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, spiritualism, etc.). False leaders who were previously Christian can be divided into the morally apostate
(1 John 3:4-10) and the theologically apostate (1 John 2:18-27)."

(33) P.S. - Beware Of False Prophets by Paul Becker, A Voice In The Wilderness, 2000
Taken from Romans 16. "These who -claim- to be "uniting" everybody are actually the ones -CAUSING- the "divisions". What "division" is this? Dividing people AWAY FROM God's Word. Away from God's Doctrine. Doctrine is what brings "unity" to Believers. (1Cor1:10) So when they throw God's Doctrine out the window, they are dividing God's people."

(34) Anti-Spirits And False Teaching by Shirley Ann Miller from the book, "Anti-Spirits and False Teaching" and Lampholder Ezine series on "Mind Control "Lampholder Publications
"God gave every person on the face of the Earth "a mind." When you suppress or suspend the thought process you essentially disconnect the "whole" person. God made mankind to interact with Him by a renewal of mind (the soul), spirit, and body. When God speaks to us through His Holy Spirit, He speaks through our spirit to the mind, but the mind (upon being renewed in the Spirit) confirms the Holy Spirit promptings and aligns with the Word of God. The supernatural receives "spiritual" messages that manifest themselves from the spiritual realm into the physical through "the senses and the passive mind." If you disconnect your thought process, you open yourself to receive whatever supernatural, spiritual manifestations happen to be manifesting their presence at the time, and by opening yourself up to anything but the Holy Spirit, you WILL find yourself dealing with "other spirits."  Remember: Always investigate the source and test the spirits "...to see whether they are of God...(1 John 4:1). As the anti-spirits plot in the air and work on earth against God, believers must continually fight back with spiritual  power through prayer and intercession."

(35) Get Ready For T.D. Jakes: The Velcro Bishop With Another Gospel by G. Richard Fisher, Personal Freedom Outreach, Vol 17, No 2, 1997
"We must choose — the stakes are enormous — and eternal. Put away the Jakes materials and revisit the Bible. It will tell you the truth minus the velcro."

(36) Testing The Fruit Of Charisma's Heroes by Jackie Alnor, 2000
"Charisma Magazine's 25th Anniversary edition looks at the legacy of those who have graced its covers.  The list is a Who's Who of people who have brought shame to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This self-tribute is the biggest compilation of evidence against the charismatic renewal ever put to paper.  Stephen Strang (founding editor) and Lee Grady (editor-in-chief) have unknowingly demonstrated what a miserable lack of accountability exists in their ranks.  Here's some brief quotes that speak from themselves as seen in this new issue of Charisma displaying the cacophony of scoundrels, heretics, and  rotten churched role-models ..."

"See the spider's web, and behold in it a most suggestive picture of the hypocrite's religion.  It is meant to catch his prey..."

(38) Colin Dye Unmasked by Dr. Siam Bhayro, Vanguard Magazine, Issues 6 & 12
"It is certain that Colin Dye is a great fan of Roberts Liardon, who is in turn a tremendous devotee of his namesake Oral Roberts and numerous other heretics. What is also apparent is that with these men come their false teaching and bizarre behaviours, and that Dye has deliberately chosen to associate himself with, and indeed build upon, these ideas and experiences, as will be shown in future articles on the subject."  Read Part 1 and Part 2.

"I have heard a few fascinating accounts lately involving some Third Wave false teachers."

(42) Healer? Heal Thyself! by Sandy Simpson, 11/14/00
"A good subtitle for this article might be "Practice What You Preach!"  There is no doubt that God can and does heal people today.  But the false doctrines of the Word-Faith Movement about "declaring" healing, "name-it-and-claim-it", etc. have been proven to be lies by the very people who sell this deceit.  If you don't know about where these famous "faith healers" go when they need healing, you may be surprised.  Do the math.  Be a Berean.  Learn to discern!"

(43) Truth Or Consequences by Orrel Steinkamp, The Plumbline, Vol. 6, No. 1, 1/01
"Whether it be recognized or not, there is a huge integrity problem in the church today regarding who speaks for God."

(45) Where Are The Faith Healers Now? by Sandy Simpson, 10/01
"In the wake of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. one question begs to be answered.  Where are the faith healers now?  Are they hiding?"

"No miracle worker or healer showed up in NY when they were needed, why?"

(47) Biblical Divine Healing Versus Other Types Of Healing by Sandy Simpson, 1/25/02
"There are basically five types of healing in the world today. Biblical Divine, Natural, Medicinal/Medical, Psychological, and Paranormal/Demonic healing.  This paper is an attempt to study these various types of healings, to identify their characteristics, to show their biblical support, and then to make comparisons with some of the healing claims of televangelists like Benny Hinn and others."

(48) Study In Jude by Sandy Simpson, 5/14/03
This six part series is an in depth study of Jude and how his warnings and admonitions to the Church are even more crucial today.

(50) False Teachers: Wolves In Sheep's Clothing by Todd Uebeles, 2003
All throughout the New Testament, right up until the end of Revelation, Christians are warned about false teachers, people who will introduce heresies in Christ's Church, wolves that devour the weak. Who are these false teachers and what are the heresies they will introduce?

(51) The Trial Of Spirits - Both In Teachers And Hearers Wherein Is Held Forth The Clear Discovery, And Certain Downfall, Of The Carnal And Anti Christian Clergy Of These Nations, Testified from the Word of God, to the University in Cambridge, by William Dell, Minister of the Gospel, and Master of Gonvil and Caius College, In Cambridge, London, Printed in 1666, Philadelphia, Reprinted by Benjamin Franklin and D. Hall in 1760
This section, from the above booklet printed by Benjamin Franklin, serves as a history lesson on false prophets and false teachers that we need to heed today.  Why take to heart William Dell and his exegesis of the Word of God?  Because what he described is EXACTLY what we are seeing today being played out on TBN, CBN, the NAE, and in the New Apostolic Reformation by a whole host of false apostles, prophets and teachers.

(54) Attacking Men Of God? by Bud Press, Christianity, com, 1/04
As one who has been involved in an apologetics ministry for years, it sickens me, and I'm sure my colleagues, to be accused of "attacking" the most dangerous and prolific false prophets and false teachers of our day, especially when clear-cut, easy-to-comprehend documentation is provided.

(55) When a Prophet Speaks and His Words do not come to pass ? by Mike Oppenheimer, 4/04

(58) David Jeremiah Proposes "Major Paradigm Shift" For His Church by Lighthouse Trails Research, 9/18/06
If you attended Shadow Mountain Community Church this weekend, then according to an email we received, you would have heard the second part of Pastor David Jeremiah's series called Journey with Jesus. But the title of this series is a bit misleading - Jeremiah isn't just talking about Jesus; he is discussing a book called The Barbarian Way. The book is written by Erwin McManus, who is pastor of Mosaic Church in California.

(60) The Pursuit of Power by Jackie Alnor, Apostasy Alert, 5/19/07
There is a new kind of seeker today – not a seeker of truth, but a seeker of power. Churches are encouraged to be "seeker-sensitive" to those who are looking for something supernatural and there is a plethora of false teachers who are quite willing to give them what their itching ears want to hear and what their scaly eyes want to see. 

(61) “Carlton Pearson's Hell on Earth” by Michael C. Gaudiosi - The Noble Berean, Volume Twenty Three – August 2007
HELL IS RIGHT HERE ON EARTH! This is the claim of Bishop Carlton Pearson, a minister who had so much influence in the world of TV evangelism. He was once a rising star on TBN, and someone whom Oral Roberts himself took under his own wing! All this changed after Pearson had, what he called, a “revelation” from God about hell, and after he started to preach this revelation, things took a turn for the worse. What was this “new revelation”? 

(62) Soothsayers And Charlatans - It Must Be The Last Days by Ray Gano, 2008
What these soothsayers and charlatans are doing is wrong. Those who follow them are being deceived by Satan and need to seek forgiveness. Those who endorse, promote and are involved (TBN) with these soothsayers and charlatans are partakers of the same evil deeds in leading people to hell knowingly or unknowingly. They as well will be held accountable to God for choosing to serve Satan in this manner. They too need to seek God's forgiveness of their sins and stop serving Satan in this manner.

(63) The False Prophets compiled by Eastern Regional Watch, 9/08

(65) Three Fatal Errors Common Among False Teachers by Mike Gendron, Proclaiming the Gospel, 9/08, PDF
Since we are now living in the age of religious tolerance and ecumenical unity, there are some people who will immediately call this article unloving and divisive. Others will ask, "What right do you have to judge another religion?" The answer is given in Scripture. All God-fearing people are called to make right judgments, judgments that have already been established
by the objective principles of God's Word John 7:24). There may be nothing more important than warning people who are being deceived about their eternal destiny. If we do not lovingly confront them with God's Gospel, they may never know how to escape the eternal fire of God's punishment. Clearly, the most unloving thing we can do is to ignore them and let them continue down the road to destruction. For this reason, I am
always willing to offend people with the offense and exclusivity of the Gospel in the hopes that God may grant some of them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth 2 Tim. 2: 25). Let us look at three fatal errors of false prophets and how to handle them.

(68) "He's No Sinner, He's a False Prophet" by Walk With The Word, 4/09
Matthew 18:15-20 This, my friends, is one of the most misquoted, misused passages of Scripture in the New Testament. And it’s driving me crazy. This is the favorite passage of choice by the false prophets and false teachers among the church and because the sheep have so little understanding of Scripture, they go right along with its gross misrepresentation, often repeating the ill-conceived interpretation offered. 

(69) Three Common Errors of False Teachers by Mike Gendron, Proclaiming The Gospel, 6/30/09

(70) False Teachers ... REVISITED! by Sandy Simpson. ACT, 9/03/09
I often receive requests to present updated false teachings and false prophecies by the myriad of heretics out there.  We do try to keep up with all the latest.  But I have to remind people that those we have exposed as false on our site have not repented of what they have already done in the past, which is why they are still on our site.  So what they are doing now has no relevance as to whether or not they are now to be considered a true Biblical teacher.  If and when they repent, that is renounce their false teachings and false prophecies, make restitution to those they have deceived, and begin to teach sound Biblical doctrine we will give you that information.  As of now NONE of the people we have exposed have repented of their Latter Rain, Word of Faith teachings, heretical practices or their false prophecies.  But in the interest of helping you to respond to a person who inquires by saying: "Those articles are old and you need newer materials" well, here is some newer stuff you can add to the pile.  For you and me this really makes no difference, but for those who are living in deception perhaps it might demolish one of their arguments against the truth. I will only deal with quotes from 2007 through 2009 in this article.  I will not go into detailed analysis of these newer quotes in order to save space, but will present a short comment and link you elsewhere for the detailed report, if there is one.

(71) "X-Men" by Pastor Larry DeBruyn, 9/24/09
So it's truly a sad day when we see those professing to know God believing and behaving as if they do not. So it's significant to note that the divine judgment was to begin in the sanctuary and then work its way out through Jerusalem and the rest of the entire nation (Compare 1 Peter 4:17.). This order of judgment compelled Paul to command the congregation at Rome: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple" (Romans 16:17-18, KJV). But if we are to engage in such marking, we ought to be reminded that the accompanying emotion ought to be one of grief. Yet we ought also to be reminded that in the end those who refuse to mark false teachers may not be marked by the Lord to be spared divine judgment.

(72) God is Light by Pastor Bill Randles, Believers In Grace Ministries, 9/23/09 - Read Part 1 & Part 2.
John’s first epistle was written to restore the true knowledge of God, to Christians whose faith had been undermined by an early form of Gnosticism. A “Gnostic” is a Christian who claims a special, mystical knowledge of God, which is unique to conventional Christians. Gnostics re-define what it means to know God, what prayer is, how revelation is received, who God is, what it means to be spiritual, etc. The effect is that so-called “normal” Christians began to doubt their own knowledge and experience of God.

(73) Frustrated with False Teachers? by Bud Press, Christian Research Service, 10/28/09
Indeed, the shall and will is here and now, and "Christian" bookstores lead the pack in the promotion and sale of doctrines of demons, authored by heretical wigglers who have turned their backs on God to seek fortune and fame.

(74) Making God’s People Trust in a Lie… by Pastor Bill Randles, 4/21/10
It is happening all over again. In the church, as in the last days of Judah, immediately preceding the devastation of the Babylonian captivity and the destruction of the temple, Christians are  being  inoculated  to conviction and preparedness by the soothing Words of false prophets like Hananiah.

(75) Points to Ponder - Todd Bentley, Benny Hinn, Rick Joyner, and False Teachers by Bud Press, Christian Research Service, 6/10/10
By their own doing, false teachers are plagued with contradictions, which is a natural consequence to being double-minded. Gradually, false teachers tell their stories and, at the same time, teach their followers to believe in their dreams, visions, and revelations--despite the Biblical warnings. And because many modern-day false prophets and false teachers claim to see "Jesus" and have direct, verbal communication with God, their words are slowly phased in as the word of God, while God's inspired written words are phased out. As such, so-called "new revelations from God" spewed from the mouths of false teachers today are likely to change into something totally different tomorrow. Indeed, contradictions and double-mindedness go hand in hand, both of which should prompt red flags of discernment.

"Mills says that while he was preaching, oil began to flow from his hands and feet."  What does Joshua Mills and others within the Prophetic Movement have to do to convince people they are not of God? 

(78) Tele-Evangelist Lifestyles: Lifestyles of The Rich and Infamous, Also Called Fleecing The Flock by Carol Brooks, In Plain Sight, 2010
If you happen to be among those who think Christian leaders are entitled to obscene amounts of money, visit the GFA (Gospel For Asia) page, read the article then order their free book Revolution In World Missions (No ‘love gift’ asked for). Then, in view of millions who have never heard of Jesus, imagine how many souls an organization like GFA could save with money wasted on antiques, jets, jewelry, fancy cars, wardrobes and watches. Finally decide whether you want to help Benny Hinn buy another Rolex, or help a missionary get a megaphone, some Bibles, a bicycle, a warm coat or even a pair of shoes, all of which are desperately needed. Contrast this with Marilyn Hickey Ministries that, not so long ago, asked if you would “Love to mix travel with ministry?” Then list four points under the heading “Are YOU ready to”. Point 1 says “Enjoy 5-star hotels in Jakarta and Bali”. Point 4 says “Distribute tracts, food, and clothing to the needy in the slums of Jakarta?”  Huh?

(79) Minister or Sinister?- How to know when your church has become a cult by Preacher Bureau of Investigations, 11/5/10
Everything is about CONTROL.  The main tools used to control members are INTIMIDATION and MANIPULATION.  The intimidation and manipulation are very subtle and disguised with a false sense of love and concern.  It’s all a strategic COURTSHIP. Most people come to church with a NEED.  The need can be physical, emotional, financial, social, or spiritual. Having that need puts a person in a very vulnerable state of mind and they are searching for fulfillment of the need.   CULT PASTORS are searching for vulnerable people that they can control and manipulate.

(80) Harold Camping Strikes (Out) Again! by Sandy Simpson, 12/5/10
Imagine my shock when I heard that Harold Camping was up to his former tricks in predicting, using some kind of fancy numerology, that Jesus Christ will return on May 21, 2011.  I quickly thought about how I would cancel my plane reservations to speak at a discernment conference.  I mean, if Jesus is coming back then there will no longer be a need to expose false teachers because they will have met their demise along with their leader.  But then I realized, Camping is himself a false teacher and so I thought I would write this article to use on my speaking trip since I will be talking about his second failed prediction then. 

(81) May 21, 2011 and the Harold Camping Cult "Prophecy" by Justin Edwards, 1/5/10
The world is not lacking in its number of cults who have attempted to set dates for the return of Christ or the end of the world. Whether drinking poisoned kool-aid to join the passing comet gods or merely predicting dates for TEOTWAWKI (the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it), obviously these have failed miserably - and for good, biblical reason. Despite the clear truth of Scripture on these matters, false prophets such as Harold Camping and his Family Radio cult continue to set dates for the end of all things. 

(82) Is It Negative And Unbiblical To Name False Teachers? by Brannon Howse, Posted: 01/04/11
This is a video about how many churches think it is too negative to name the names of false teachers.

(83) Portrait of a False Prophet by Sharon Lindbloom, 1/16/11
During an email exchange a Latter-day Saint wrote, "You have continually said that the 'LDS' church is led by a false prophet. Do you even have the slightest idea who the prophet is right now? His name is Gordon B. Hinckley, and HE IS A PROPHET OF GOD. You can't even sit there and tell me that he is leading anyone astray -- he is a man of integrity beyond your comprehension." I have encountered this sort of assertion many times. People seem to think that a false prophet would have horns and bad teeth; that he would be easily recognizable as evil. They think that if someone is attractive or calls people to do "good" things, he must represent the one true God. But what does the Bible say?

(84) Rick Wiles and the devastation of America in 2010: a muddied cup of prophecy by End Time Delusion, 1/20/11
"Last 3 months of 2010 will be brutal for America. The storm that will hit in the last 3 months of the year will not destroy America but it will stagger and stun the nation. There will be a great disruption in the nations commerce, communications, transportations and supply lines that will impact America for years. Tell my people to use the first 6 months of 2010 to prepare for the last 3 months. A year of bloodshed , violence, terror and fear"…..my comment: I am unaware of any such event having occurred in the U.S in 2010. Also, what was especially brutal about the last 3 months of the year, that wasn’t in play during the first 9 months?

(85) It's That Simple! by Pastor Anton Bosch, 2/1/11
We often get questions relating to some new teaching that a pastor or some book is promoting. Sometimes the subject is a really complex one which flows from different interpretations of various Scriptures. But many times the answer is very easy and very simple.

(86) News About The Harold Camping "End Of The World" Caravan by Daily Mail Reporter, Mail Online, 3/9/11
Most people like to push thoughts about the end of the world to the back of their minds, hoping that the apocalypse, if it ever comes, will be a long way off.
But for one group of not-so happy campers, doomsday is a lot sooner...May 21 to be precise. According to the predictions of the Family Radio ministry, on that date a massive earthquake will shake the world apart, littering the ground with 'many dead bodies'.

(87) 3/12/11 - False Teachers Among You by Alistair Begg, 3/12/11 - Read Part 1 & Part 2.
The Bible warns against false teachers but it’s easy to assume heresy was only an issue for the 1st century church. Alistair Begg puts the ancient issue of false teachers into contemporary perspective. 

(88) Lunacy Strikes Again - Harold Camping’s Family Radio Is At It Once More by Jacob Prasch, 5/14/11
Not for the first time, false teacher and proven false prophet Harold Camping and his frolicking band of religious lunatics and “Family Radio” devotees are discrediting the Body of Christ with absurd doctrines and false predictions. The date-setting for the return of Christ forbidden by Jesus, hatred of all other churches and ministries aside from their own, the hideous old crank cum heretical false prophet they have for a guru and the absurd doctrines of this cultic and pathetic deceived brood of supposed scripture-believing Christians of some warped description resembles the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the World Wide Church of God of the late conniver Herbert W. Armstrong.

(89) Will This Ship of Fools Sink May 22? by Jan Markell, May 17, 2011
Harold Camping is making a laughing stock of Christians who believe in premillenial, dispensational eschatology with his warning that the world ends Saturday, May 21. What will the aftermath of this unscriptural prophecy look like?

(91) Another False Doomsday Predictions To Discredit Christians by David Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries, May 19, 2011
Preacher Harold Camping is at it again, setting a specific date that the Rapture is going to occur. His advertising is warning people that the End of the World, the Rapture of the Church, is going to occur May 21, 2011!  Jesus told us 2,000 years ago to watch out for false religious leaders and their prophecies at the End of the Age. 

(92) Harold Camping’s Claim of Judgment Day May 21st Host: Vic Eliason, VCY America, 5/19/11
This Crosstalk looks at the reasons for Camping’s prediction that Judgment Day is coming up this Saturday, May 21st. This prediction, based upon Camping’s personal numerology, is bringing disgrace to the name of Christ as atheists and others in the public arena are mocking the general idea that one day Christ will return.

(93) Harold Camping Exposed as a False Prophet - Again! by Spiritual Research Network, 5/21/11
Harold Camping, who years ago predicted Judgment Day to be in September 1994, has once again predicted the end of the world.  This time Harold Camping has said that Judgment Day will be on May 21, 2011.  May 21, 2011 is now here and Harold Camping is proved to be a false prophet again!  Actually, today is the official confirmation date for Harold Camping to be a twice-over false prophet.

(94) The May 21 Fallout…by Bill Randles, Believers In Grace, 5/21/11
I believe that May 21, 2011 will prove to have been a watershed day for millions of people, regardless of the fact that Jesus didn’t come back to rapture His flock, and commence the judgment of the earth, as predicted by Harold Camping. Evidently the calculations of the self-confessed life long Bible student, and civil engineer didn’t quite add up. I hope you don’t think I am being facetious about it, because there is nothing humorous in this at all. In fact, I have no doubt that though things didn’t work out as some anticipated, many lives will never be the same again because of the fallout from this spiritual fiasco. The impact for many will stretch into eternity.

(95) The Latest: Harold Camping Predicts A New Date by Ken Silva, 5/24/11
It seems, rather than humbly admitting his error, Camping now speculates he “misinterpreted the Bible” and rather than May 21st beginning “the end of the world” supposedly we’re to believe that it was actually “the spiritual beginning of the physical end” not too unlike the eschatology of the non-Christian cult of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Camping is quoted as dreaming:  “Were not changing a date at all; we’re just learning that we have to be a little more spiritual about this,” he said in a rambling 90-minute radio  broadcast that was part sermon, part press conference. “But on Oct. 21, the world will be destroyed. It won’t be five months of destruction. It will come at once.”

(96) Doomsday Datesetters 2012 by Gaylene Goodroad, Herescope, 6/14/11
Not since Y2K has there been such a global frenzy over predicted massive and universal doom. This time, the fever pitch is considerably higher due to the number of ancient and modern prophecies, prophets, and phenomena guiding the way—all pointing to the year 2012.

(97)  'Rapture' real aftermath: Beheadings, shootings, mass graves - 'Families don't know if missing loved ones are dead, arrested or hiding in jungle' by Bob Unruh, WND, 7/14/11
The executive director of a ministry that works with the persecuted church in the northern reaches of Vietnam says he's outraged that a "prophecy" by an American preacher apparently cost the lives of many tribal Hmong people who believed it. The prediction by Harold Camping, 89, of Oakland, Calif.-based Family Radio, was that Jesus Christ would return to Earth to "rapture" his followers to heaven on May 21.  Camping said mankind had run out of time, and the Creator of the universe would arrive on that Saturday.

(98) Faith Healers and Dealers by Pastor Larry DeBruyn, 7/15/11
Look at it like this: a particular evangelist claims to possess power from God to heal people. Then, we ask, why doesn’t he go to public hospitals or physical rehab facilities and call the sick and the lame out of their beds? If the pretend healer did, can you imagine the  amazement that would fall over all the nurses, doctors, workers and other patients? So why don’t the charismatic healers leave the friendly confines of planned meetings in rented auditoriums and go to the hospitals? Why don’t they just do it? Maybe they don’t do it because they can’t. And if they can’t, when in fact they put on airs they can, then they are liars. But if like Peter they really can but won’t, then “these healers” are cruel. So their failure to heal in public places like hospitals strikes at the heart of their credibility. By failing to go to hospitals and heal, are they violating their “hypocritical” oath. In either case, they stand exposed as either liars or loveless.

(100) Tolerating Spiritual Leaven by Matt Slick, CARM, 8/4/11
We have televangelists who boldly proclaim to millions that we are little gods. There is the name-it-and- claim it “prosperity” teachers who say that the crucifixion of Christ bought us health and wealth and we need to do claim what is rightfully ours. We are taught that churches must change their appearance and message in order to attract unbelievers -- all the while compromising the gospel. The error of universalism, that all people will be saved, is creeping in little by little and gaining converts. 

(101) It's Time For Christian Leaders To Test False Teachers by Marsha West, 8/29/11
I’ve written several articles voicing concern over the Christian Right (CR) uniting with leaders in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) for the purpose of fighting the culture war. Other Christian bloggers are concerned as well and have been asking valid questions, such as why the CR chooses to involve themselves with these fringe groups. As of this date we’re still in the dark. So I’ll toss out the question again: Why do Christian leaders, pastors, and luminaries choose to unite with what Jesus referred to as “ravenous wolves”?

(102) Speaking Without the Authority by End Time Delusion, 9/1/11
“Jesus said there will come men who will speak claiming their authority is from me……..There will come men who will speak in my Name. They are going to come and say I’m speaking to you in my Name……..they will prophesy and preach. …….But when I meet them I will say ‘leave me I never knew you workers of iniquity.’ Why? Because they use His authority and His name, because the power was in Jesus’ name, or Jesus’ authority, not in them………And they’re gonna fragment and divide the Church because you won’t test them….. Well, it’s about time we test them ……..You test them by Scripture. Then if your fidelity is the Scripture, and your allegiance is the Scripture, you reject them! ……When you take your eyes off Scripture as the criterion for authority and you place it on experience and on people, and on revelations, and on messages that allegedly come from God, you are set up for deception, you’re made for it………… - Dr. Walter Martin, from his 1988 Warning To the Church……..

(103) “Family Radio Founder Harold Camping Repents, Apologizes for False Teachings” by Nicola Menzi, Christian Post, 10/31/11
With his speech sounding somewhat slurred and labored, Family Radio Stations Inc. founder and chairman Harold Camping sought to address in a recent message why Christ failed to return on Oct. 21 as the Bible teacher had predicted. Camping confessed, after decades of falsely misleading his followers, that he was wrong and regrets his misdeeds.

(105) Bad Shepherds - an Examination in Light of Scripture by Mishel McCumber, Deception Bytes, 2/23/12
Recently, I became aware of scripture verses in Jeremiah I had previously been unaware of.  Immediately, I was stuck by how accurately the verses portrayed the characteristics of the apostate shepherds, teachers, and prophets we are seeing in the church today.  It drove me to pull out other scriptures to see if I could get an overall picture of what GOD considers to be a bad (or false)shepherd. I should not have found it surprising that God so accurately described over two thousand years ago, those I would run across in my trek through the wilderness of false doctrine; but I did. This is in no way a comprehensive list and if you find other scriptures that address these false shepherds, teachers, pastors, teachers and prophets, I would be grateful if you pass them along.  I have first given a list of characteristics then backed them up with scripture, adding a short personal commentary. 

(106) Prophets, Not Profits by Al Lewis, Wall Street Journal, 4/23/12
God does not want you to be rich. Every so often, he raises up a prophet to teach wayward profiteers about the sacrifice he demands. Ephren W. Taylor II, who called himself "the Social Capitalist," may be one such prophet. This son of a preacherman sold investment schemes at megachurches from Bishop Eddie Long's New Birth Missionary Baptist Church near Atlanta to Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston. The Securities and Exchange Commission recently charged Mr. Taylor with running a Ponzi scheme. His victims are now congregating in a class-action lawsuit. (Read more about Mr. Taylor on my blog, tellittoal.com.) "There's more fraud in the name of God than anything else," says Ole Anthony, president of the Trinity Foundation, which has been investigating religious fraud since 1987.

(108) Evil Men and Imposters Grow Worse and Deceive by Heidi Swander, 5/12/12
I’ve been memorizing the tiny book of Jude in the last few weeks. It is amazing to me to think of Jesus’ brother writing to first century Christians and saying, “For certain men have crept in unnoticed . . . ungodly men who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ,” (v. 4). It’s amazing because it sounds like the DVD I’ve just previewed; a new and timely video entitled, The Submerging Church: How the Emerging Church is Drawing Multitudes Away from Biblical Christianity. What we’re observing in the 21st century was already prevalent at the inception of the church.

(109) Claiming to Know the Mind of God – Rick Wiles and Trunews by Endtime Deception, 6/4/12
The amount of fraud, deception, and manipulation which takes place in the church today under the pretence that it is the work of the Holy Spirit, is truly staggering. The gifts of the spirit are being counterfeited. Outright lies are peddled from internet ministries in their broadcasts and dressed up as special revelation from God. The gift of prophecy, a thing of excellence in its uncorrupted state, is being degraded into a morass of dream interpretation. The gospel and the risen Christ take a back seat to showmanship in this circus of vanity and puffery, as the ministers responsible seek the prophetic glory for themselves and their ministries.

(110) Are False Teachers Above Scrutiny? by Bud Press, 7/13/12
False teachers are notorious for avoiding comments in public forums that call into question their heresies, false prophecies, and blasphemies. To stay on their "good side," their followers must behave themselves, walk on pins and needles, and refrain from making waves. The same applies to Christians who encounter false teachers, because if what is said is viewed as "negative" or confrontational, false teachers will not hesitate to smack the delete button on their keyboards, and even block Christians from posting additional comments.

But when it came to his own cancer and pneumonia, Ariel Ben Sherman was treated in a hospital in South Carolina, records show.

(113) When Dreams Overtake Scripture In Authority: Neo-Pentecostalism and Its Dangerous Effects by Endtime Delusion, 3/12/13
This week I saw the lamentable new article posted by Nathan Leal of Watchmans Cry, called “Alert Warning Number 6 – A Prophetic Dream” dated March 8, 2013. (Source) It brings to the fore a very sad state of affairs in the church today. It marks out new territory in the rapid expansion and spread of apostasy, especially in online Christian ministries.

(114) Contemporary Christian Divination: The False Claims and Practices of Christian Mystics by Bob DeWaay, 2007
Those today who are evangelical Christians, who know God through the gospel, yet dabble in the practices of the pagans, are spiritual “sons of Jeroboam.” They are, like Jeroboam, very creative in making Christianity relevant to the current culture. The problem is not Western rationalism as the contemporary mystics all claim. They are fighting an obsolete battle. The prevailing culture in America is very much “spiritual.” They claim the need for mystical experience to fight against modernity when they are in a post-modern culture that has embraced the East. The danger today is not that people think that the material realm is all there is, it is that they think they can contact the spiritual realm their own way. They are practicing divination.

(117) The Ultimate Falsehood excerpted from Dave Hunt's book "Countdown to the Second Coming.", 8/1/13 
Somewhere at this very moment on Planet Earth, the Antichrist is almost certainly alive—biding his time, awaiting his cue. Banal sensationalism? Far from it! That likelihood is based upon a sober evaluation of current events in relation to Bible prophecy. Already a mature man, the Antichrist is perhaps active in politics and might even be an admired world leader. Or he could be the head of a multinational corporation, a little-known international banker of great wealth and behind-the-scenes influence, a sports hero—or he might arise suddenly from total anonymity. Somewhere he is being meticulously groomed, though as yet he probably has no more inkling than do those who encounter him daily of the ultimate role for which Satan is preparing him and will, one momentous day, utterly possess him.

(118) Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing: 5 Tips to Identify One by Forgotten Word Ministries, 1/8/14
Have you ever heard the saying “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”?  I have heard it a couple of places. First, many years ago I heard one of Aesop’s Fables which talked about a wolf that put on a sheep skin so that he could fool the shepherd into believing he was a lamb.  Then when the shepherd locked the flock behind the gate at night the wolf  thought he was clear to eat all the sheep he wanted. To his surprise the shepherd returned to the flock that night to gather meat for the next day. The wolf in sheep’s clothing was killed as one of the sheep. You see the saying “wolf in sheep’s clothing” simply means someone who is pretending to be something they are not. Years later I heard this concept in another place –The Bible.  Jesus warns against wolves in sheep’s clothing: “ … Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but in-wardly are ravenous wolves.”  Mathew 7:15 Following are five tips on how you can identify a wolf in sheep’s clothing; a false prophet.

(119) Christians Eating Grass? by Conrad Mbewe, 1/12/14
As we read about this week’s Christians eating grass, may we be caused to do more than claiming that we are not doing anything that crazy. Let us examine ourselves to see if we have inadvertently opened a door through which another Lesego Daniel might sneak in and with time bring disrepute to the Lord’s name under the banner of evangelicalism. Believe me, “Sola Scriptura” is the only bolt that totally locks out such self-deluded impostors (such as Pastor Lesego Daniel of Rabonni Centre Ministries.) “To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn” (Isaiah 8:20).

(122) Is Your Favorite Preacher a False Prophet? by Forgotten Word, 6/25/14
One One of the most amazing facts of religious life is that although masses of humanity are following spiritual leaders, few people seem to believe that False Prophets actually exist. Today, billions of people worship God in one manner or another. Never have there been more religious people on the face of the earth, never more worshipers of God—and never more False Prophets and their followers.

Neil Anderson

(1) Demons, Demons, Where Are The Demons? The Unchanged And Unchanging Neil Anderson by G. Richard Fisher, PFO, 2/16/13
Criticizing the teachings of popular author Neil Anderson might seem a risky task. After all, his books are advertised in Charisma and The Marketplace (formerly The Bookstore Journal) and endorsed by the likes of Bill Bright, Chuck Swindoll, Kay Arthur and Trinity Broadcasting Network favorite, Jack Hayford.  His teachings focus on liberation from bondage—bondage from sin and the power of the devil, subjects any Christian ought to be familiar with. But a closer look reveals teachings that have far more in common with extremist Charismatic movements than with the Bible.  The bondage that Anderson promises deliverance from is not simply from the power of sin but from demons—some of them originating with long-dead ancestors—who indwell believers. 

(2)  Neil Anderson and Freedom In Christ Ministries: A General Critique by Elliot Miller, 1998
Through his influential ministry, Freedom in Christ, Neil T. Anderson brings his so-called captive-freeing message on sanctification and spiritual warfare to Christians worldwide.

(1) William M. Branham by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997 "Apart from the fact that almost everything he said or taught publicly is available in one form of another there is a more lasting and damaging legacy left behind. Branham was responsible in a great part for the formation of what came to be known as the New Order of the Latter Rain. Branham believed in the distributing of spiritual gifts by the laying on of hands, he believed in restored prophets and apostles. He was the vanguard of many more to come who will operate in this end-time glory and power."

(3) Apostate Occult Oneness Prophets: The Evil Of William Branham & The Manifest Sons Of God Copyright © 1997 Zenith Harris Merrill
"William Branham, the "father" of the Manifest Sons of God" theology, and much of the Charismatic movement, which has inspired the Citi-Church, Universal DAWN movement and C. Peter Wagner's Spiritual Mapping of today, was empowered by Satan. C. Peter Wagner, in his book, Engaging the Enemy, attributes much of his information on "Territorial Spirits" to practising Witchdoctors and former Satanists, rather than God's Word. William Branham was Baptist, until his wife died in childbirth, and he had "angelic" visitors who told him it was because he needed to be teaching and preaching "Oneness," instead of the Trinity. He then joined a Oneness Pentecostal church and taught nothing else for the rest of his life. He believed in what the early Church Fathers called the error of Modalism, also known as Monarchianism and Sabellianism: that Jesus is all there ever was of God - He says that God "always had skin on him," but that Jesus sometimes functioned either as the Father or as the Holy Spirit, instead of Himself. Branham taught that God could only function as one at a time, much like an actor playing one role and then another. Where did he ever get such an idea? Everything he believed was from "his" angel of light."

(8) The Life, Teachings and Legacy of William Branham by Mike Oppenheimer, 8/18/12
One cannot understand the modern miracle revivals or healing crusades of Benny Hinn, Rodney Browne (laughter), Toronto, Brownsville, or Todd Bentley without referring to the healing revivals of the 40’s-50’s.that were steered and popularized by William Branham. Nearly all the practices of today's apostles, Prophets, healers, faith ministries, are being copied. Visits by angels and the Lord Jesus, words of knowledge (telling people where people live and secrets of their lives), new revelations were all part of William Branham’s ministry operation. One can trace portions of  the revivals in our modern era back to him. The Latter Rain teachings began by Branham and spread to so many. Branham believed he was born with a personal angel that was a gift. But he did not think of it as such until he was converted and went to church. This gave him an answer to a disembodied voice (spirit) that accompanied him from birth and instructed him through life, telling him future events and diagnosing peoples diseases. The video is filled with audio and video on crucial teachings of Branham (and others that admire him) that show that his angel was in charge of the supernatural taking place. Understanding Branham's ministry in the 40'sand 50's is key to our day. Once we know about Branham we can identify the strange teachings and practices taking place from the new apostles and prophets trying to bring their mystical (Latter Rain) revival in the church today.  (you can read our articles on Branham in the Latter rain section). DVD is one hour and 15 minutes long.

(9) William Branham - False Prophet by Forgotten Word Ministries, 9/7/12
I have decided to write this article on William Branham for 2 reasons and that is this: William Branham’s influence on the church today is nothing but a vile attack on the True Body of Christ. This article will also serve as a reference to some articles that I will be writing soon on some supposed ‘men of God’ aka ‘Prophets’ in South Africa – who claim that they have William Branham’s Mantle. Any ‘pastor’ who says that William Branham was truly a man of God or says they have anything from William Branham (mantle, angel, follows his teachings, etc) should be avoided like the plague.

(10) The Serpent seed - Teaching "from the Serpent" by Mike Oppenheimer, 5/23/13
One of the most deceptive doctrines that has slithered into the church is the serpent seed teaching. First popularized by William Branham and currently held by Arnold Murray of the Shepherds Chapel and his followers that have adjusted some of its meanings.  Read Part 1 & Part 2.

(11) A Challenge to Message Believers concerning William Branham by Forgotten Word Ministries, 9/25/13
While some view William Branham's healing ministry and his gift with the word of knowledge as proof that he was a prophet, this is not the Biblical test. There are numerous prophecies on this website that were made by William Branham in advance but were not fulfilled. This creates a clear problem with Deuteronomy 18:20-22. One would think that those that believe him to be a prophet would have numerous examples of publicly available prophecies that were later clearly fulfilled. Sadly, this is not the case. 

(12) The Hidden Truth About William Branham and His Message by Chad Creamer, 3/31/14
Breaking away was very difficult, to the point where some even contemplated suicide. It is only through the Grace of God that we have come out of the great deception and looked to Jesus Christ as our only means of Salvation. There are still many scars, the pain of having family members still trapped in the cult and the loss of childhood friends. I hope I have helped shed some light on this movement that has bound millions of people in its grip. I trust that God will raise more valiant soldiers who will enter the battle and shine the Light of Truth to all people. Deception has many forms; Branhamism is just one of them.


Paul Cain

Something breathtaking is happening among key Charismatics (Third Wavers) like Rick Joyner and Paul Cain.  Rick Joyner recently announced that he was knighted by the Knights Of Malta.  Apparently, Paul Cain had already been knighted or was knighted at the same time. For a follow-up on this story, check this out!

(3) Paul Cain, Latter Rain Prophet of Renown Is Now Discredited by Orrel Steinkamp, The Plumbline, Volume 9, No. 5, December 2004

Paul Cain, a  prophetic legend and a living bridge to William Branham and the Latter Rain of the 50's, has now been revealed to be an alcoholic and a practicing homosexual. Ironically, this disclosure came at the hands of his fellow prophets who had elevated him to a super prophet status and who themselves endeavored to attain the lofty prophetic mantle of Cain himself. 

Tony Campolo

(1) Tony Campolo - Interfaith ... Here We Come! by Andy Neckar, CNV News Service, 1999
"On a recent edition of CNN's Crossfire, Tony Campolo refused to say Jesus is the only way to heaven. The panel was discussing events at the Southern Baptist Convention in Atlanta. Campolo would not answer the question directly but said, "The Apostle Paul says that there are people who have light that is not Christian light, and they will be judged on that basis."

(6) Tony Campolo: Advanced Fence-Straddling And Denying The Exclusivity Of The Gospel by Ken Silva, Apprising Ministries, 2/1/07
Don Retson, a reporter for the Edmonton Journal, asks Emergent Evangelical Prophet Tony Campolo a straight forward question in the January 27, 2007 edition:
Q. Do you believe non-Christians can go to heaven?
A. That's a good question to ask because the way we stand is we contend that trusting in Jesus is the way to heaven. However, we do not know who Jesus will bring into the kingdom and who He will not. We are very very careful about pronouncing judgment on anybody. We leave judgment in the hands of God and we are saying Jesus is the way. We preach Jesus, but we have no way of knowing to whom the grace of God is extended. (Online source) 

(7) Open Letter To Tony Campolo by Drew Dyck,
New Man Magazine, 10/07/07
But I found myself shaking my head after reading the rest of the interview, especially after seeing your comments about Muslims and homosexuality. You seemed to suggest that Muslims might obtain salvation apart from belief in Christ. 

(8) Fake Evangelism by Upholding The Truth, 11/16/07
According to Tony Campolo the best way to really be filled with "Christ" is to get everything out of your mind through centering prayer. Is he Catholic, mystic, Quaker, new ager?

(9) Tony Campolo; False Teacher by Truth Watch NZ, 1/3/13
This mixture of biblically based confessions and unbiblical teaching make Campolo a prime example of the like-warmness that disgusts Jesus (Revelation 3:14-22).  It  makes him a dangerous man for the undiscerning.  He has clearly fashioned a God made in his image to satisfy some personal quest to reconcile the secular and the sacred.  His golden calf is a composite god fashioned to be kind and acceptable to a world he wants to surround in the milk of his own good-will.  By mixing truth with error he has broken the first and second commandments, for which he will one day have to account.

(10) Tony Campolo to Shutter Ministry by The Berean Call, 1/27/14
TBC: While Campolo claims to have “taught evangelicals how to speak the language of social justice,” he has contributed to the denial of the biblical gospel, which he to a certain degree admits: In his book, A Reasonable Faith he writes: “There are some warnings that I wish to issue to anyone reading this book. The first is to be aware that the theology expressed in this short volume represents a personal attempt to state my Christian faith in a way that might prove meaningful for my secularist friends. I am sensitive to the fact that any attempt to state the Gospel in the dominant categories of a culture inevitably leads to a distortion of the Gospel. Consequently, anyone who accuses me of violating the biblical message is correct” (p. 190).


Morris Cerullo

(1) Morris Cerullo - The Last Great Anointing? by Inner-City Christian Discernment Ministry, 1998
Morris continues to spew forth false teaching regarding the "anointing" which has no biblical basis whatsoever. Let me ask you a question. What was the "first" great anointing He released upon the Church? If we want to call the Day of Pentecost, the birth of the Church, the first great anointing, so be it, but what was the second, the third, the fourth. . .and now the "last" great anointing?

But attorneys for former associate John Warren say that Cerullo is "hiding" behind the law, and they plan to appeal."

(5) PAUL YONGGI CHO’S THEOLOGY AND CHURCH GROWTH METHODOLOGY by Christian Wei, The Burning Bush, Volume 2 Number 2, July 1996
One of the most dangerous and confused issues in contemporary Christianity is on the nature of the Christian’s success or prosperity. People in our success-oriented generation are always attracted to successful methods or prosperous phenomena. If a particular method works, a great multitude will follow and exalt it, regardless of its philosophy or theological accuracy. It is very disheartening to know that many people in modern Christianity have discarded God’s Word and Christian doctrine in favour of these so-called "successful methods" in their pursuit for more success in this world. One of their favourite arguments is based on Gamaliel’s philosophy (Acts 5:33–40). Thus, they argue that one indication that their activities are of God is the presence of large crowds. They forget, however, that there are many false religions in this world with innumerable adherents. Paul Yonggi Cho, a very influential person in the Christian scene today, is a leading proponent of the above-mentioned concept.

(6) Quotations of Paul Yonggi Cho by Jim Fox,  04/24/2003

(7) Senior Pastor David Yonggi Cho of Yoido Full Gospel Church: Jailed by Churchwatcher, 2/21/14
The golden prosperity triangle is falling. While Phil Pringle’s protege Kong Hee is still going through court procedures of mishandling church funds of up to $40 million US, their mentor David Yonggi Cho has been sentenced “to three years in prison, suspended for five years, and ordered… to pay 5 billion won (US$4.67 million) in fines”.

(8) Heretical Swindler Yonggi Cho Convicted of Financial Corruption in Korean Court by Moriel, 2/23/14
For years following publication of his demonic book “The Fourth Dimension” Moriel has warned of David Yonggi Cho , the Korean pastor who combines Kenneth Copeland style word-faith heresy with Oriental Shammanism and occult visualization techniques claiming “Buddhists and Hindus have known his formula for centuries but now Jesus Christ has revealed it to him”. Cho’s ‘formula’ is the bogus notion of Eastern mysticism that the human imagination is one’s spirit. His corrupted pseudo theology was a combination of “blab it and grab it” of the money preaching tele-evangelists, gnosticism, and Shammanism.


Kim Clement

(1) Kim Clement by Contenders, 1999
"Kim Clement is a self-proclaimed prophet and a frequent guest on the Trinity Bradcasting Network. But is he a genuine prophet or one of those prophets that Scripture warns us will tell us to follow after other gods? The quotes from Mr. Clement in this section should give us a hint."

(2) "One Of The Greatest Easters This Nation Has Ever Celebrated!"- Kim Clement's "Prophecy" Examined by Cross + Word, May 2004
In January of this year, Kim Clement of "Prophetic Image Expressions" woke up in the middle of the night, believing he was hearing from God. What he reported of that experience was televised, and repeated around the world, and received as accurate and reliable by thousands of gullible Christians. It has proven - like the words of so many modern-day prophets - to be terribly false.

Graham Cooke

(1) Graham Cooke by Jacob Prasch, Moriel Ministries, 1/29/12
Graham Cooke is a false teacher, a deceived and theologically ignorant man who deceives others, and a man with no scriptural right to be in the ministry of Christian leadership. Looking at the tragedy of his marriage, the rubbish he teaches certainly did not do him any good. Neither will it profit others, only deceive them with un-scriptural foolishness they imagine to be Christian by thinking with their emotions and confusing their feelings with authentic scriptural spirituality. 


Paul Cunningham

(1) MANCHILD BORN! - Seen In A Vision By "Apostle" Paul Cunningham by Cross+Word, 7/00
"Many in revival circles have adopted Manifested Sons of God teachings about the Church (or, a small prepared body within the Church) developing spiritually into perfected overcomers, worthy to receive the ultimate anointing, the presence of the Christ Spirit. They believe they this will glorify them to such a degree that they become "The Christ" on earth. Thus, they are the earthly embodiment of Christ, a corporate Christ. THIS CHRIST CHILD IS SUPPOSEDLY DESTINED TO BE RULER OVER THE CHURCH AND THE NATIONS!"

John Hagee

(1) The Other Gospel Of John Hagee by G. Richard Fisher, PFO, 1999
"Most people who see and hear the Rev. John C. Hagee are impressed. He is rotund, strident, authoritative (and could well pass for Rush Limbaugh’s older and more serious brother). His delivery alone gives the impression of one who really knows what he is talking about. However, careful evaluation of the teachings of Hagee, pastor at the San Antonio-based Cornerstone Church, reveals false teaching and a defective view of a basic and essential issue regarding salvation and the Gospel. Hagee preaches another way of salvation for the Jew, which is in direct violation of Paul’s warnings in Galatians 1:6-9."

(2) John Hagee's 'In Defense of Israel' by Jacob Prasch, Moriel Ministries, 11/07
While I appreciate John Hagee's support for Israel, he is clearly theologically misguided.

(3) John Hagee's Word Games Regarding The "Dual Covenant." by Orrel Steinkamp, The Plumbline, Volume 12, Nov 6, November/December 2007
The Houston newspaper then quoted Hagee's own shocking words: "I'm not trying to convert the Jewish people to the Christian faith... In fact, trying to convert Jews is a 'waste of titne. . Jews already have a covenant with God and that has never been replaced by Christianity." (Houston Chronicle, April 30, 1988, sec, 6, pg. 1). But, Hagee knows that most Christians and almost all dispensational believers do not accept this and are in fact shocked by it. In response to a letter by PFO Director M. Kurt Goedelman, Hagee essentially denied this. NOW HERE IS THE POINT REGARDING WORDS BEING USED TO COVER AND DECIEVE. "Hagee claimed in a carefully nuanced letter, dated June 18, that the Houston Chronicle had distorted what he said and went on to further to assert: "I have not or never have been dual covenant in my preaching”. In this he is being less than honest and playing word games... Hagee's true view is a muddled form of the 'Two Covenant' or 'Dual Covenant' theory, even though he would deny the label. It should be noted that Hagee said in his reply only that he has not been dual covenant 'in my preaching'." (PFO, G. Richard Fisher, the Other Gospel Of John Hagee.) This is slicing and dicing words to cover and deceive. Words can or they can conceal and even deceive.

(7) John Hagee: Unrepentant Heretic by Harmony Daws, 11/23/10
A Christian recently wrote to me asking for more clarity about John Hagee, whom I have called a heretic. Hagee has tried to defend himself against this oft-made charge, even revising his book and carefully denying belief in a dual covenant where Jews can be saved apart from Christ. Yet in his Christians United for Israel conferences held in most major cities, he enforces a strict policy of not mentioning Jesus, forbidding attendees to attempt to convert them. Hagee zealously trumpets the cause of political Zionism, believing Jewish control of all Palestine will hasten the Rapture, and puts this priority far ahead of bringing Christ to the Jewish people. 

(8) Modern Day Deception: John Hagee And His False Teachings On Israel! by Soul Refuge, 5/21/13
It is incredible that more people do not speak out against the “ministries” of people such as John Hagee (and many others) and the false teachings that proceed forth from them.


Christian Harfouche

(1) Dr. Christian Harfouche - Expose' by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, 7/00
"This kind of teaching needs to be avoided like the plague. Personally I like the man and his style though similar to others is unique and I believe he is sincere. Again, in my opinion if Dr. Harfouche would change his word faith theology to be Biblical, he could be more effective in communicating the truth. If so he could be more effective in building up peoples spiritual lives and see true spiritual growth instead of singing the same tune of Hagin, Branham, Hinn, Browne and others."


Jack Hayford

(1) Jack Hayford: Invite Unbelievers to Take Communion by Ingrid, Slice Of Laodicea, March 16, 2006
This article is encouraging non-believers to drink damnation unto themselves as Scripture plainly points out. Where in Scripture do you see the partaking of Lord's Table as an act of conversion or "commitment" as this apostate pastor calls it?

(2) Is Jesus Cleansing His Church with Cleansing Stream? by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 2005
This deliverance program was originally founded by Timothy Davis. Cleansing Stream is a deliverance ministry that is endorsed and taught by Jack Hayford, whose statement in one of the Stream’s brochures says a lot. “Let me introduce you to Timothy Davis who has been on the pastoral staff of Church on the Way (as Executive Director, but now longer with them) and Cleansing Stream Ministries. I have often said that in our ministry at the Church on the Way we refuse to be preoccupied with demons, but we do cast them out.  Because of the need of balance and insight in this area I’d like to introduce you to a resource for approaching your own teaching and training in the ministry of deliverance.” With supporting headliners such as Hayford who can argue against its validity? However, the question that needs to be asked is not if it is popular (or balanced), but is it biblical? 

(3) A Look At Some Of The Teaching Of Jack Hayford by Robert Wise, Forgotten Word Ministries, 3/06
I am not a supporter of Hayford for a number of reasons especially his continual decisions to be affiliated with the "Word of Faith" preachers like Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, etc.  Jack also is the pastor of the Church on the Way in California and is the pastor to Paul and Jan Crouch of TBN. 

(4) Jack Hayford Expose by James Sundquist, 8/06
So it is appropriate that I do respond! My reason for opposing T.D. Jakes, Kenneth Copeland, and Jack Hayford are not because I disagree with their methods, rather it is because of the content of their teaching as well as the false teachers they promote and endorse and even co-labor with. I am not unique in my assessment of these three teachers. Their published statements speak for themselves. But there are also a great number of biblical discernment ministries besides me that have done extensive research on their teachings who are highly credible. But credible or not, the bottom line, is we must all be good Bereans and simply line up their teachings with Scripture. I can only hope and pray that many of you are simply not aware of all their teachings.

(5) Wolf Watch: Luis Palau and Jack Hayford by by David Norris, Spiritual Pathways Ministries Library, February 25th, 2006
Jack Hayford of the Church of the Way in Van Nuys, California, is the founding pastor. Two of his congregation just happen to be Paul and Jan Crouch of TBN (the Baloney Network). And, yes, he comes with all the frills and CHILLS of the Faith Movement with an emphasis on extra biblical revelation to the extreme. He has often cited that God speaks vocally directly to him to the point where he can “officially” say, “And, I quote”.

An earthquake that took place on Wednesday, June 8th in Bolivia (it was 00:33 Thursday Greenwich time, though it was still only Wednesday in the five time zones that felt the 8.2 tremor) was said to be the physical manifestation of a mere spiritual event."


David Hogan

(1) The Remarkable Exploits of David Hogan - Astonishing Miracles or Incredible Hype? by G. Richard Fisher, Personal Freedom Outreach, 6/00
"David Hogan has the perfect ploy. The miraculous events are always left in his wake; they always happen elsewhere and he has no eyewitnesses to verify it. Even the inspired writer, Luke, in talking of the certainty of his report, said it was because of the number of “eyewitnesses” that we could believe his account (Luke 1:1-4). Paul spoke of over 500 witnesses of Christ’s resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:6). Our faith is to be in God and His Word, not a man. Hogan offers absolutely no documentation of any claims."

Manasseh Jordan

Manasseh Jordan claims to be a prophet of God, and is endorsed by American televangelists such as Benny Hinn, Mike Murdock, Paula White, and Paul Crouch of the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Briefly, let’s note a couple of things here. First of all, Jordan clearly makes the claim that he has received personal revelation from God through “the leadership of the Holy Spirit” to form the very basis of his ministry and doctrine. Secondly, Manasseh Jordan supposedly operates within “the realm of accurate prophetic ministry.” While at first sight that may sound impressive, we must keep in mind that the Bible informs us the ministry of the true prophet of the one true and living God is one hundred percent accuracy—period.

"Abstract: Various reports are received on the spiritual motivation, theology and questionable practices of Prophet Joshua of Nigeria. Following is an article by Bill Randles of the USA"

(4) T.B. Joshua - "Miracle Man" Rebuttal by Bill Randles 
"I don't pretend to know Joshua's motivation; by all accounts he seems to be a very sincere man. However sincerity is no safeguard against deception. I am sure Edgar Cayce, Jean Dixon and countless other prophets, who by Christian, Biblical standards would have to be regarded as False, were equally sincere and unassuming. There are countless warnings in scripture about the emergence of False Prophets and teachers who like Pharaoh's magicians, withstood and hindered the true gospel by means of signs, wonders and miracles. Just because Joshua seems to be able to produce "results", doesn't make him a man of God, nor should we go there. The end does not justify the means. The very idea of having to go to Nigeria to receive a healing, or a miracle, or a Word from God, is unscriptural."

Yesterday we posted about TB Joshua’s supposed prediction of the Colorado shootings. We also pointed to a news article which suggested the prophecy originally said the shooting would take place on a military base and the shooter would be a soldier. These details were edited out of the Colorado prophecy video, presumably because they did not fit with the actual event (in a cinema, by a student). Today, someone unconnected with TB Joshua Watch uploaded a video to youtube showing the original prophecy and the edited one. Not surprisingly, it clearly shows that the prophecy did contain details that failed to come true so were edited out.

(16) 4 dead, many injured at SCOAN Ghana. This anointed water nonsense must stop! by TB Joshua Watch, 5/21/13
TB Joshua has just released version 3.0 of his anointed water packaging. The packaging for anointed water 2.0 boldly claimed that it was “for the salvation of your soul“. Presumably since the release of 2.0 someone explained to TB Joshua that only the blood of Jesus could provide salvation, so incredibly for version 3.0 he labels his anointed water “the blood of Jesus“. You can’t make this stuff up. Sadly, all the hysteria about the new, upgraded anointed water packaging turned to tragedy on Sunday when a stampede happened at SCOAN Ghana. 4 people were killed and many others injured, according to a police officer at the scene “15 people who were seriously injured, some with broken limbs, many others collapsed but were resuscitated.”

(19) TB Joshua’s evolving MH370 prophecy by TB Joshua Watch, 3/27/14
As it stands, he’s not offered anything of any use. However, there are a few points that he can’t retract or twist: 1.The plane is in the sea. This is a safe bet to hedge because that seems the only likely hypothesis, but until the plane is found, that cannot be certain. 2.The plane will be found any moment from now (that was first said 9 days ago, so time is ticking on that prediction). 3.By the end of the week, the mystery will be solved (we will no longer be talking about it). We hope that TB Joshua’s followers will at least hold him to these points, but will also pay attention to the order in which his predictions have been revealed. This has been an event where someone with genuine knowledge could have been incredibly helpful and become very well known. What TB Joshua has said has added nothing.

(20) Is TB Joshua’s anointed water the solution to the Ebola crisis? by TB Joshua Watch, 8/12/14
On the 2nd August 2014, TB Joshua announces to his congregation that he had just finished a meeting with a large delegations of officials from the government and NGO’s such as UNICEF discussing various issues, including the Ebola crisis. The delegation formally handed him a letter, the contents of which he didn’t disclose. The way he described this meeting led his delighted flock to believe that the officials had come to seek the counsel of their “man of God”. Though the contents of the official letter was never disclosed, it seems very likely that it announced the tough measures being taken against any faith healers claiming to be able to heal Ebola. The Washington post have reported that any pastor or healer claiming to be able to heal the virus will face jail time.

"Pastor and writer Roberts Liardon is stepping down from ministry after admitting to "moral failure." He is taking a three-month leave of absence to seek "professional and church counseling related to a recent short-term homosexual relationship," according to a statement issued on behalf of his Embassy Christian Center in Irvine, Calif."

Lord Maitreya

(1) A Sneak Peek At The False Prophet
Check out these articles and the web site of a false prophet, maybe THE False Prophet. This is the leader that is proclaiming himself to be Christ returned and aspires to lead the world church. The worldwide "revival" movement, bringing diverse groups and people together such as Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, The Latter Rain Movement, Manifest Sons Of God, Jubilee 2000, Oral Roberts University, The Roman Catholic Church, Word-Faith Movement, Rodney Howard-Browne, Toronto "Blessing" churches, Brownsville AOG "Revival" churches and many more, is now in the process of breaking down all denominational/religious barriers via "signs and wonders" to form one world church. This world church will find it's leader in the False Prophet. Click on the numbers below to go to the linked article.

(2) Lord Maitreya: Lord Of The Apostasy? by Ed Tarkowski, 1996
"Endtimes! Unity! Celebration! Joy! Rebirth! Right Relationships! Transformation! The greatest Move of God ever known to the Church! These are the subjects I addressed in my three part series on the surge of Latter Rain and Restorationist unity, harvest and revival currently hitting the Church head on. As I researched the articles, which focused on the "birthing of the corporate child" by the year 2000, I was shocked to see that the various quotations I'd gathered from church leaders also formed a vivid picture of these new moves in the Church. Months later, as I began to research false christs for our Home Page on our Lord's second coming, I was again taken aback as I discovered that the same Latter Rain/Restorationist agenda was being proposed through the directives and messages of Lord Maitreya, the "Master of All Masters" channeled by New Ager Benjamin Creme. Lord Maitreya is a likely candidate to be the "Lord" of the endtime Apostasy, and may very well manifest himself in some way during the global celebrations scheduled for the year 2000."

(3) The Final Equinox 2000 ... Maitreya by Daniel Adam Millar, 1996
An interesting, if somewhat speculative theory on the end times. However, there is a lot of fascinating information about Lord Maitreya, who the author firmly believes is the False Prophet and the "second beast in Revelation 13".

(4) Lord Maitreya: The Messiah In Disguise? by the Watchman Fellowship, 1995
"According to Benjamin Creme, spokesman for the Maitreya and director of the Tara Center, the Maitreya appeared in Nairobi, Kenya to a group of about 6,000 worshipers. "On June 11, he appeared suddenly in the crowd and spoke to them in their own language, Swahili, for a time. Benjamin Creme confirmed that this appearance was truly Maitreya the Christ in one of his many guises" (Network News, June/July 1988, p. 2)."

(5) Maiterya's New Logo Symbol
This is purportatdly Maitreya's new logo. Here's the animated version.You will notice that it can be seen as having 666 elements. The basic six-pointed star is made up of two pyramids. On each six point are six logos. The first seal is the I-Ching/yin-yang as the center for a lotus flower with an embedded swastika. This is the same as the center seal. The second seal is a star of David of Israel. The third seal is the cross of Christianity, the fourth seal is the cresent moon of Islam with an I-Ching in the middle of the star. The fifth seal is the nine-pointed star of Baha'i. The sixth seal is allegedly the seal of the "Elects" which is basically a star of David with a rising sun embedded with a swastika. You will notice that he I-Ching symbol itself is made up of six elements. The lotus flower petal represents the seventh level of "chakra" called the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra where a person allegedly becomes one with the universe. "The seventh trumpet is representative of the event when the Aquarian experiences the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra activation." On the day of declaration Maitreya will likely announce himself with the blast of a "shofar", the Jewish "Jubilee" trumpet. At the blast of this "shofar", all who have been initiated into Kundalini-type experiences and manifestations, such as Hindu mystics, Tibetan monks, channelers, mediums, witches, witch doctors, voodoo preists, satanists, transcendental meditationists, "counterfeit" revivalists and many others will have their highest "chakra", the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra, "activated" and will hear Maitreya speaking to them in unison in their minds. When they realize that people from many religions are hearing the same thing, they will assume that the "anointing" is on "all men" and that Christ has returned to earth. This will unify them together as the world church under Maitreya, the False Prophet. This will likely usher in the Tribulation.  If  you would like an explanation of what the symbols in Maitreya's logo mean in the occult, go here.

(6) The "Overshadowing" Of Maitreya Will Be A "Pentecostal Experience For All" by Benjamin Creme, Share International F.A.Q.,1999
"On the Day of Declaration, I submit, everyone -- even the fundamentalists -- will know, through the overshadowing of the minds of all humanity -- a Pentecostal experience for all -- that Maitreya is the Christ."

(9) Maitreya Claims To Be Decended From King David & Muhammad with comment by Sandy Simpson, 4/4/06 
This article was sent to me by a reader of the DITC web site.  These geneology claims were to be expected from promoters of Maitreya.  They are trying to sycretize all religions into one with Maitreya being the expected coming Christ, etc.  Check out the following links for their claims about Maitreya.  Maitreya is a good candidate for the antichrist.  Keep in mind while viewing this material that it is full of lies.  However, this proposed geneology does show that Maitreya is from and Islamic country, which would be consistent with the view of many biblical scholars that the antichrist will be from and Islamic country.

(12) Maitreya Rising? by Paul Proctor, NewsWithViews.com, December 19, 2008
There was a very strange announcement made recently in the form of a press release posted on the Dow Jones & Company’s Market Watch website dated December 12, 2008, that bears mentioning, if for no other reason, because it reads like something from a supermarket tabloid. Come to think of it, didn’t Rupert Murdoch just buy Dow Jones & Company not long ago? If you’re not aware, they also publish, among other things, the Wall Street Journal.

(14) Maitreya: A Purpose-Driven False Christ by Warren B. Smith, 8/8/14
I am your Purpose. I am your Hope. I am your Heart. God is within you and all around you. My name is Oneness. I shall place before you all the purpose of God. My Plan is God’s Plan. Nothing will happen by chance. Take part in a Great Plan which is changing the world. My Coming brings peace.—Maitreya the “Christ” Messages from Maitreya the Christ, 1992

Carlton Pearson

Oral Roberts

(1) The Life And Ministry Of Oral Roberts O Timothy Magazine, Volume 7, Issue 3, 1990
"It is obvious that Roberts is a deceiver and a false prophet. His prophecies have been proven wrong time and time again. Sadly, he has deceived multitudes with his lying words and false promises, and has robbed God's people of hundreds of millions of dollars. And in spite of all the evidence which proves Roberts' hypocrisy, he is still regarded as a great Christian leader in charismatic circles and is still promoted as a man of God."

(2) Scandal Brewing At Oral Roberts by Justin Juozapavicius, Associated Press Writer, Sat Oct 6, 6:38 AM ET 
Twenty years ago, televangelist Oral Roberts said he was reading a spy novel when God appeared to him and told him to raise $8 million for Roberts' university, or else he would be "called home." Now, his son, Oral Roberts University President Richard Roberts, says God is speaking again, telling him to deny lurid allegations in a lawsuit that threatens to engulf this 44-year-old Bible Belt college in scandal.

(3) The seed of Faith that made BIG MONEY – The Story and legacy of Oral Roberts by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 2/18/09
Oral Roberts is known in the church as someone many believe has a healing gift. During the 1950s, William Branham led the revival in healing that would break the ground for such people as Oral Roberts.

(2) Pat Robertson, Regent University & the DSM by PsychoHeresy Awareness Letter, March-April 2006, Vol. 14, No. 2
Robertson and those at Regent University involved in this amalgamation of psychology and the Scripture have sold their biblical birthright for a mess of psychological pottage. However, Robertson and his Regent University are not the only ones that have sold out the faith once delivered to the saints for the ungodly wisdom of men. Sadly this type of psychology is pandemic throughout the church world. 

(3) Another False Prophecy From Pat Robertson by Bud Press, Christian Research Service, 12/31/06
It is obvious that Pat Robertson did not hear from the Lord. Since he used his disclaimer-prophecy to solicit donations, one wonders if he would be willing to give a refund to those who contributed money?

Every January prognosticators and forecasters in the world, the church, and the occult publish their predictions for the coming year. When we look back at their track record, we're not very impressed. Some are hit & miss; others are downright off target; none are 100% accurate.

(6) Pat Robertson says Alzheimer's makes divorce OK by CBS News, 9/15/11

(8) Ken Ham of Creation Museum Slams Robertson for Dismissing Young Earth Theory by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, 12/14/12
Pat Robertson has been accused by evangelical Christian and creationism proponent Ken Ham of "destructive teaching," after the televangelist stated that the existence of dinosaurs is evidence that Young Earth Creationists are wrong about the planet being 6,000 years old.

(9) Pat Robertson shrugs off adultery, CBN regrets the misunderstanding by Eric Marrapodi, 5/21/1

Robert Schuller

(1) A Different Gospel - An Evaluation Of The Teachings Of Robert Schuller by Rev. Gil Rugh 
"I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you, and want to distort the gospel of Christ" (Galatians 1:6-7). Millions of people around the world are familiar with the ministry of Dr. Robert Schuller. His television program and books have made him one of the most recognized figures in Christianity today. Many look to him as an expert on Christian doctrine and living, but are the teachings of Dr. Schuller in line with what the Bible teaches? In his work, A Different Gospel: An Evaluation of the Teachings of Robert Schuller, Pastor Gil Rugh compares the teachings of Robert Schuller with the Bible to discover if the gospel presented by Schuller is truly the gospel of the Bible, or if it is "a different gospel."  This is no longer available as a .pdf file, but is available as a booklet via the link above.

Gwen Shaw

(1) End-Time Handmaidens - Ministry For The Last Days or "End Time" Delusion? by Personal Freedom Outreach, The Quarterly Journal, July-September 1994
"All in all, with its doctrinal ambiguity, theological aberrations, unscriptural emphasis on the sunpernatural experiences and prophetical and mystical leanings, the End-Time Handmaidens is an attraction for the spiritually naive and undiscerning.  The foundation of the group is far-removed from the bedrock of Christian orthodoxy.  ETH is just another "end time" delusion.  It has a confusing message of salvation, with people only committing to Gwen Shaw's control and her plethora of false teachings and teachers."  Sorry we cannot include this article on our site as there is no link to it online, and we cannot get copyright permission to place it on our server.  Go to the link above to order a copy of this article from PFO.  Ordering information is included on the page, and simply make reference to this article.

(2) The End-Time Handmaidens And Servants Cult - Founder: Gwen Shaw by Mark Scheiderer, 7/00
"Former member of the End-Time Handmaidens & Servants Cult Mark Scheiderer states: "The reasons I am writing this report on my experience with Gwen Shaw and the cult she has founded - a.k.a. End-Time Handmaidens & Servants - are five (six, seven & eight [added later]) fold: (1) To let people know how others and myself were treated while working at this cult's headquarters. (2) Because of my grief over the mental abuse Mrs. Shaw inflicted upon certain people before their departure. (3) Because I can no longer agree with or keep silent about Mrs. Shaw's writings, which are New Age teachings..(4) Because of the pain and destruction that Mrs. Shaw, her teachings, and members of this cult have caused in my parent's marriage (now ended in divorce), the lives of my immediate and extended families, my life and personal relationships with others both during and after my association with this cult, and in the lives of countless others.  (5) So that as many people as possible, especially those within this cult would know the truth about this cult." Gwen Shaw appeared on Benny Hinn's "This Is Your Day" during the month of October, 2000. Hinn sold and endorsed five of her books (with a sixth one free for $40) These books are small paperbacks.  Bill Bright, C. Peter Wagner, John Arnott and others endorse Gwen Shaw. 

(3) Web Of Deception - Gwen Shaw by Donna M. Shuck, 2007
I have been going to see Gwen Shaw for many years on a weekend retreat once a year at the Retreat Center in PA. I admired her missionary travels all over the world and her authorship of many books, ministry to women and emphasis on prayer and fasting. I admired her promotion of many other authors’ books which she presented at every convention freely. However, there were times that I didn’t agree with some of the statements she made or some of the behaviors that were going on in these meetings and felt uncomfortable with the power that seemed to permeate the very air with a powerful drawing effect. Recently God has opened my eyes in a fresh way and awakened me concerning this false supernatural spirit, the false doctrines and the mishandling of scriptures in her teachings and I am eternally grateful to Him; therefore, I’d like to present you with this enlightening account of just some of the false teachings I have encountered regarding Gwen Shaw as well as those whom she heartily endorses.

New Sandy Simpson Messages 
on CD & DVD

NEW!
Those Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

The Scriptural definition of maturity is to learn to discern truth from error so that the Christian will no longer be double minded, blown about by every wind of teaching and by the schemes of crafty people.  But the problem today is that so few Christian teachers are feeding their flock's solid food.  They are serving up milk and, because of that, people are starving. Yet they often don't even know they have been on a starvation diet.  Amos 8:11 "The days are coming," declares the Sovereign Lord, "when I will send a famine through the land -  not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord."

"... and all liars"
by Sandy Simpson


This DVD is a message based on this article.

Lying is a problem for all people (Ps. 116:11).  We are all sinners (Rom. 3:23).  Those of us who are Christians are "sinners saved by grace" (Eph. 2:8) indwelt by the Holy Spirit in our "new self" (Col. 3:10). But we still live in our "old self" which we must "put off" (Eph. 4:20-25) by taking up our cross daily and following Christ (Luke 9:23).  The difference between unbelievers and those who are truly born again is that believers no longer "practice sin" (1 John 3:9, see my Bible study on 1 John!)  They have the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:11) who convicts them when they lie (John 16:8). True believers then repent (1 John 1:9) and go on to "practice righteousness" (1 John 2:29) with the Lord's help.  The unregenerate, the false brothers, or those who have fallen away (Gal. 5:4, Mark 4:17), practice lying.  They practice a lifestyle of lying because their consciences are seared (1 Tim. 4:2) and the Holy Spirit, when convicting them, cannot break through the hardness of their unrepentant hearts (Eph. 4:17-19, Heb. 3:13).
