False Teachers – What do you do when?
Most people trapped in blatant false teaching manage to escape their captors evil clutches and then run off seeking truth in the direction of men, other men who preach false teaching but are not so blatant.
What do you do when these men preach a version of the truth; they have the gospel message down to a fine art except when it comes to the message of salvation. This is where they know they will trap the soul.
- False teachers teach the truth to a certain extent, but stop absolutely short of teaching a genuine message of salvation.
- Twist the deity of Jesus Christ just ever so slightly to make their entire message a waste of time.
- Twist the meaning of the blood of Jesus just slightly to make their message of salvation null and void.
- Twist the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross that He did not die for the whole world but only for the Calvinistic elect and the message is null and void.
- Add works through Lordship salvation and they’ve destroyed it.
- Make the gospel of Jesus about men instead of God.
- Twist just the smallest bit of who Jesus IS, add too Jesus, take away just the smallest thing from Jesus, and you have destroyed everything.
What do you do when you have people running from blatantly false teachers i.e., (Kobus van Rensburg, Todd Benltey, Benny Hinn etc ) into the arms of men who are supposed to be renown in good solid teaching and therefore should be able to be trusted?
How do you now tell those people who escaped the blatantly false teacher that the person they are now entrusting their ‘learning’ too is also false.
The blatantly false came dressed in a clown suit, the real master deceiver is dressed like a banker with a polished smile. Who would have know that the banker wore clown suit underwear?
This was the plan all along! The Trinity Broadcasting Networks of the world would have their way, they would have the lime light, they would persuade the masses, they would be effective in leading millions onto another path – a Roman Catholic path.
This was the plan from the beginning…
As time would go by (a good few years at that) The TBN’s of the world would start to preach very weird things; the signs and wonders would get weirder, their lies more extreme. Then there would be the branch-offs like the New Apostolic Reformation (C. Peter Wagner’s crew) and the likes of God TV would jump on the scene. They would come in from another angle, with the same rubbish doctrine but with a different image. But sooner or later they too would be branded as ‘those who fill their pockets with money, nothing but prosperity preachers’. And this is what has happened. Then Rick Warren popped on the scene and purposefully drove million of people in to the hands of the Roman Catholic Church.
Now a shift has taken place.
Prosperity bad! Social Transformation good! Everyone is Purpose Driven. But both are bad because it’s the same rubbish doctrine as before but with a different image. You even now find the clown trying to dress up like a banker like Andrew Strom for instance.
Planned to perfection.
Discernment ministries warned about these people, and they thought no one was listening. WELL, how wrong were we, there were hundreds of thousands of people listening. Who did we recommend for them? The ‘good’ ministers dressed like a banker, because apparently we throught they preached the truth. We recommended the Calvinists for instance; because the Calvinists were about as close to still being genuine as one could get.
Then the tide turned.
The TBN’s were now seen for what they are: FALSE TEACHERS. Benny Hinn is officially a CON-ARTIST. And the tattoos on Todd Bentley are not stick on tattoos. The whole revival was a scam. People were shook to the core after Lakeland. So what did they do? Most searched and searched, and they found the likes of Louie Giglio, John Piper, and John MacArthur
We should never at all be surprised to be told that false teachers will appear from the outside, sneaking their way in among the people of God. But we missed this part completely; where the bible warns us that false teachers will arise from “within” the people of God.
Acts 20:28-30 28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.
What do you do when this happens?
Well this is what I am going to do.
I am writing this because I want to publicly apologise to every person I told that John MacArthur was legit. I did not understand the doctrine of Calvinism for a short time and I told people that Calvinists were ok. How wrong I was. If I don’t open my mouth and speak the truth, then I am no better than all the others leading people astray. I feel sick to be honest. I have learnt a big lesson here.
I side with no one but Jesus Christ the Son of God. I will never take the side of men no matter how good their ministry seems. Does this mean I don’t trust anyone? Of course not. It just means that if and when (but hopefully not) they start to preach false doctrine or their background colours are exposed, I will not hesitate to make them take a long walk off a short plank.
STICK TO THE PLAIN BIBLE, READ THE WORD OF GOD ONLY.
DON’T FUSS WITH MAN MADE PHILOSOPHIES AND INTERPRETATIONS WHEN YOU HAVE THE GREATEST INTERPRETER EVER – THE HOLY SPIRIT.
