Kris Vallotton RUNS From His Own Facebook Post!!

Kris Vallotton is trying to deceive the very people who should know better-the people who read what he says on his Facebook page! Within a 24 hour period he completely contradicted himself, without any explanation. He now fully endorses the use of "Destiny Cards" to help people to "have an encounter with God." The Christalignment Ministry page has also changed the description of their practices to hide the disturbing similarity to tarot card reading.

Yesterday, he harshly criticized (without naming them) Ken and Jenny Hodge for using "Christian Tarot Cards," and he spoke as if these nameless people were not really connected to Bethel Church at all.  Here's a screenshot of his post from yesterday that he erased later in the same day:

25158017_10105252177251690_7992169858875559773_n.jpg

Today he calls them "amazing people" being "destroyed by fake news." 

Here's what Vallotton posted this morning:

What?? Vallotton himself is the one who was very critical of these people just 24 hours ago! 

Kris Vallotton IS the fake news! 

 

 

I (Steven Kozar) was able to briefly comment on Vallotton's Facebook page, and then he blocked me from commenting:

Fortune telling Vallotton screenshot.jpg

Kris Vallotton is shamelessly manipulating his followers, just like Michael Brown. Vallotton is essentially saying to his gullible followers: "I know that I wrote a very public statement just yesterday condemning the practices of Ken and Jenny Hodge's Christalignment Ministry and then I got all sorts of negative feedback from you people, and then I deleted the whole debate from my wall... but today I want us all to pretend it never happened, so I can now appear to be supportive of their ministry. Okay?" Vallotton's gullible followers seem to be saying "Okay Kris, we will believe anything you tell us."

 Here's the entire article from yesterday: Kris Vallotton and Bethel Cannot Escape Link to New Age Occultism

Here's another important follow-up article from NAR expert Holly Pivec at Spirit of Error: The "Christian" Tarot Card Controversy at Bethel

Here's something that false teachers hope you never see: Shocking Stuff you're Not Supposed to Know!

If you want to see how Kris Vallotton is a horrendous Bible twister, listen to this episode of Fighting for the Faith.

Here's a TON of articles all in one place: The Bill Johnson Cornucopia of False Teaching

Titus 1:7-11  “For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain, but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to REFUTE THOSE WHO CONTRADICT. For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain.”

James 3: 1 "Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness." 

Titus 2:1 “But as for you, speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine.”

Galatians 1:6-9  “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. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

Kris Vallotton and Bethel Cannot Escape Link to New Age Occultism

tarot-991041_960_720.jpg

Kris Vallotton and Bill Johnson are in a quagmire of New Age Occultism of their own making, but no matter how many posts they erase, or how much they tell their own cover stories, the truth is that they don't teach biblical Christianity and it's (hopefully) starting to become more obvious.

At Bethel Church you find these things:

  • The strange "Latter Rain" and "New Breed" false doctrine leftover from creepy cult-leader William Branham
  • The prosperity gospel heresy of Benny Hinn, and many others (including disgusting blog posts from Kris Vallotton, like this)
  •  A witch who gets positive and affirming "prophetic words" from Bethel "prophets" who tell her to continue her witchcraft
  • Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, and other Bethel staff contributed to a book that openly encourages Christians to "take back truths" from the New Age to become more effective Christians

 

The Bethel "gospel" is has nothing to do with sinners repenting of their sin and believing in the atoning sacrifice of Christ to pay for their sins; the Bethel "gospel" is largely focused on telling people how wonderful and loved they are, and helping them to discover their "Destiny."   

Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton are famous for creating a whole new type of church, where they are known as new Apostles who get direct words from God to guide Christians "off the map" of orthodox, biblical Christianity, which they continually deride as old-fashioned, ineffective and "religious."

In short, nobody goes to Bethel (or their "School of Supernatural Ministry") to learn "traditional" Christianity because they teach that we're in a new era where everyone can hear directly from God (outside of the Bible) and where there are no rules about how to do anything anymore. The "spirit leads us" now. Bethel tells people to experiment and make lots of mistakes until they finally figure out how to "prophecy" or heal people or whatever.

So now a group in Australia called "Christalignment" which has been following the Bethel methods to a tee, is getting thrown under the bus of Kris Vallotton, Bill Johnson & Company. This couple, Ken and Jenny Hodge, are the founders of Christalignment:

16508676_1537290856299142_5327283302210597081_n.jpg

These people are committed to fitting in with hippy/New Age types, so they dress the part and try to be relatable to that crowd. The people of Christalignment give "readings" using their own specially painted "prophetic" cards so that people can learn about their "destiny" or receive some supernatural information about themselves. Does this sound like a physic reading using tarot cards? Yes, of course it does, that's the whole idea! These people are slipping into all sorts of New Age events in order to reach the non-Christian world with what they sincerely believe is the Gospel. That's what they say and believe. This article will not deal with the question of whether these are good things for Christians to be doing; that's for another day.

These are probably incredibly devoted and caring people who have the best of intentions. Here are some testimonials from their website:

What Our Clients Say About Us

"Wow... I think I read your Dream interpretation 5 times, put it down, pondered on it and re-read it. That is so spot on as to how my life has been. I cannot express to you just how much I am ministered to right now. So many years of waiting for an interpretation.... and it ministers to me more in my season now than had I gotten it earlier. I am writing this with big fat tears of much gratitude rolling down my cheeks right now. Thank you." -Michele

"So true, big shift happened. Life is amazing. Thanks for your guidance. Will let you know when I remember my next dream." -Bianca

"I attended the MBS festival in Sydney yesterday and had a fantastic reading with one of your readers (the lady with the purple hair)." -Greta

"I wish to thank the people at Dandenong market this morning. You have changed my health and mindset. Again.... Thank you." -Tracey

"I met you today at Mornington, Jenny, and wanted to tell you how much more relaxed and positive I feel. Thank you so very much." -Heather

"Thank you so much to the guy & gals at Dandy market today, sorry forgot your names; was just what I needed today - some confirmations & healing as well, so many trials & tribulations have been happening. Thanks again for understanding." -Maria

"Today I went to the Mind Body Spirit festival in the city. Wow, I was blown away by how accurate a reading I had done by a lovely lady named Ally from Christalignment." -Heidi

"Very impressed by Christalignment insights from Spirit at Dandenong market which gave me answers to my questions. Authority, peace, transition, transformation to the Third Heaven. Bliss."-Anne

"I went two times to Christalignment, both being very beneficial to me. I always believed in a higher power and intuitive souls, earth angels. Chau and the team helped me get some direction to where I am in life and some deep relief from a long 5 years of depression. I felt calm and accepted by this lovely group of souls. Thank you guys." -Erin

 

Notice that these testimonials have nothing to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But they seem to be really effective at making people feel some kind of genuine spiritual experience. So what does this have to do with Kris Vallotton and Bethel? Well, today he reacted to this article from Pulpit and Pen (that made the practices of Christalignment more widely known) and he spoke against the apparent "Christian tarot card" reading. Notice how Vallotton speaks as if these are people he knows nothing about:

25158017_10105252177251690_7992169858875559773_n.jpg

Kris Vallotton tries his best to distance himself by claiming no responsibility for the practices of Christalignment, but he quickly discovered that he couldn't brush this off. Bethel is just too closely associated with Christalignment and people started confronting him on his Facebook wall, including Ken and Jenny Hodge, who claim to be the parents of Ben Fitzgerald, a pastor/missionary from Bethel!

2017-12-15_proof_fb-hodgeonvallottonswall2.jpg

Other people wrote on Vallotton's wall in support of the Hodge's "Christalignment" methods, and Vallotton wrote almost nothing at all:

25299018_10213115054743386_1703764071412642063_n.jpg
25348266_10213115036262924_975679710200718088_n.jpg

 

What did you expect, Kris Vallotton?? This is the fruit of Bethel's vague, feel-good, do whatever you think the spirit is telling you to do philosophy! Bill Johnson wrote that we should "take back truths" from the New Age; isn't that exactly what Christalignment is doing? Vallotton, Johnson and all the Bethel pastors teach that the unbelievers need to have an "encounter with God" (not hear crusty old Bible passages) and isn't Christalignment doing that very thing? They believe they have discovered an innovative new way to help people "experience God."

Christalignment and Bethel Church teach the same thing! 

Global Awakening, which was founded by Randy Clark (a very close friend of Bill Johnson and Bethel) produced a movie called Witch City that features their students doing exactly the same thing as Christalignment:

 

Is Kris Vallotton going to write a Facebook post condemning Randy Clark's "psychic readers?" Nope. Randy Clark and Bill Johnson are teaching together at Bethel next month. For $139 you can listen to these supernatural experts, too. 

So what does Vallotton eventual do? He deletes his entire post along with all the critical comments from Bethel supporters. This is how Super Pastors operate nowadays (just ask Michael Brown).

When a Church Misses THE Entire Point of Christ's Incarnation

Cedar Ridge Christian Church in Broken Arrow, OK clearly has a problem. Their pastor does not understand what Scripture reveals regarding Christ's Incarnation.

Their upcoming Christmas sermon series is all about teaching YOU how to to be God in human flesh rather than teaching how God took on human flesh and was born of the virgin Mary in order to save us. Here's the proof.

For $79 You Can Learn "Prophetic Tattoo & Piercing Interpretation!"

Hey boys and girls, here's a great idea: "Take your prophetic ministry to the next level—discover how you can give powerful prophetic words to people through their tattoos and piercings!"

Here's a link to Doug Addison's online store where you can buy his course:

Doug Addison's Prophetic Tattoo and Piercing Interpretation Class

In this course you will discover:

  • Why people get tattoos
  • Tattoos in the Bible
  • Common tattoo designs and their meanings
  • How to recognize symbolic messages in tattoos
  • The significance of tattoo and piercing placement
  • How negative designs can have positive meanings
  • How to develop metaphoric thinking
  • Plus, much more

Here's how Doug Addison describes himself:

"Doug Addison is a prophetic speaker, author and coach. Over the past twenty years, he has been a cutting-edge prophetic leader, dream interpreter, entrepreneur, life coach, consultant and trainer. He is also a leading authority in the area of destiny achievement to educational institutions, professional associations and religious organizations." 

And believe it or not, Addison is STILL trying to sell these worthless books:

We are not sure if Doug Addison really is a "cutting-edge prophetic leader, dream interpreter, life coach, consultant and trainer," but he most certainly is an "entrepreneur!"

Todd White: How Much Money Does He Actually Make?

Here's a link to the Form 990 for Todd White's Lifestyle Christianity "charity" from 2015. A Form 990 is something that ministries/charities are required to file, and that information is open to the public. 

Todd White, as President of Lifestyle Christianity, made $625,000!! 

When you give money to this "charity" you're largely putting money into Todd White's pocket; Lifestyle Christianity IS Todd White. In 2015 Lifestyle Christianity had revenue of $1,521,776.00; so around 40% of all donations go directly to Todd's gigantic paycheck. It's interesting to note that total revenue was $496,407.00 in 2014, so Todd saw a million dollar increase from the year before-that's 300% growth. Who knows how much money he's raking in this year?

 

Screen Shot 2017-11-18 at 5.57.02 PM.png
Screen Shot 2017-11-18 at 8.37.15 PM.png

It would be much more honest if this was simply organized as a business. Todd White is a professional speaker who gets paid very well to make speeches. But Todd White is buying a gigantic $19 million church, and churches are not required to file a Form 990. Is Todd White trying to hide his future income? 

 

Here's what the Apostle Paul said about preachers getting rich:

2 Corinthians 2:17  “Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.”

1 Timothy 6:5, 9-10  “...and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. (9) But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. (10) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”

1 Corinthians 5:11-13  "But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of a brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler-not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those on the outside. Remove the evil person from among you."

Titus 1:7-11  “For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain, but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain.”

 

Here's what Jesus said about getting rich:

Matthew 6:19-21 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Matthew 6:24  “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Luke 6:20-26  And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man! Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe to you who are full now, for you shall be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you, when all people speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets."

 

Here's what the Apostle Peter said about preachers getting rich:

2 Peter 2:1-3  “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”
 

Here's what the Apostle John says about getting rich:

1 John 2:15-17 "Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For all that is in the world-the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions-is not from the Father but is from the world. And this world is fading away, along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever."

Here's Todd White's $1 million mansion:

Shawn Bolz Moves Goal Posts in Word of Knowledge says Close is Accurate Enough

BolzLead11202017a.jpg

Shawn Bolz moved the goal posts in a recent word of knowledge video, as he proclaimed that being close is apparently accurate enough.

He starts out clearly calling Terra out by her age of 50. This is clearly about age to him. He finds out that Terra is 51. At that point he declares 50 as close enough, then he moves the goal posts and says the reference to 50 was about a supposed year of jubilee coming Terra’s way.

Bolz11202017a.jpg

The biblical standard for a word from God is 100% accuracy. Regardless, the 100% moving of the goal posts from age to year of jubilee exposes Bolz for being a complete fraud.

 

“An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?”

— Jeremiah 5: 30-31

“And her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord has not spoken.”

— Ezekiel 22: 28

“Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not exposed your iniquity
to restore your fortunes, but have seen for you oracles that are false and misleading.”

— Lamentations 2: 14


Pulpit Leapfrogging: Lance Wallnau’s “Revival” Rewind from Ken Hagin

WallnauLead11202017a.jpg

Lance Wallnau wants to go back to the "good old days..."

Lance Wallnau’s 7 Mountain Mandate Underground Facebook page recently shared a video from a Kenneth Hagin revival meeting showing a lot of odd things attributed to a work of the Holy Ghost. It opens with someone leap frogging over a pulpit as the camera pans to a "Jesus is Lord" sign up front. Don't  you wonder: which "Jesus" is Lord of this place?

LeapFrogGif1.gif

There is, of course, the usual “holy laughter,” slain in the spirit, and drunk in the spirit. Hagin spends most of his time in the video looking for someone to close the service. Each person ends up becoming so drunk in the spirit that they can’t close the service. This looks more like a bizarre and twisted comedy routine than a worship service. 

But all things should be done decently and in order.
— 1 Corinthians 14:40 (ESV)
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
— 1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
— 1 Peter 5:8 (ESV)

This “revival” was not done decently and in order, and people claim to be drunk instead of sober. This supposed move of the Holy Spirit does not align with inspired scripture.

This is the type of revival people like Lance Wallnau and the New Apostolic Reformation want to bring to our churches. They're demonic apostles of disorder and drunkenness. Don't fall the the schemes of these dark super apostles. Stick with scripture, you can't go wrong.


Sniffing Jesus: You Can Sniff the Body Odor of Jesus Too

eivazlead11182017a.jpg

You can sniff the body odor of Jesus if you have the gift of discerning of spirits says Jennifer Eivaz the Executive Pastor at Harvest Christian Center in Turlock, California. Apparently it can lead to a good laugh too. Jesus smells like laughing gas? She posted the below on Facebook.

Eivaz11182017a.jpg

Does this mean if I smell stale German beer and sausage some demon trying to mimic Martin Luther is after me?

This is pure nonsense and really doesn’t need further response.

Kris Vallotton Inspired by Sylvester Stallone’s Survival by Doing a Porn Movie

vallottonlead11122017a.jpg

Kris Vallotton the Senior Associate Leader at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and cofounder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry said he found inspiration from Sylvester Stallone doing a porn movie to survive financially.

On 11-11-2017 Kris Vallotton shared a video from the Millionaire’s Sayings page on his own Facebook page. The video describes Sylvester Stallone’s struggles to succeed. In the video we’re told Stallone was so poor he did a porn movie to earn money. Kris Vallotton said he found this inspiring.

stallone11122017b.jpg
I believe there’s an inner power that makes winners or losers. And the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts.
— Sylvester Stallone
The heart is more deceitful than all else, and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
— Jeremiah 17:9
Stallone11122017.jpg

This is what happens when we esteem success over Christ: We end up finding inspiration in someone selling their body for sex. It shouldn’t surprise us that someone would esteem success over Jesus. Isaiah told us this would happen.

He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief
and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
— Isaiah 53:3

Kris Vallotton: Prosperity Preacher Exchanging Love for Wealth

Todd White and Kenneth Copeland: Prosperity Pimps (Like the Apostle Paul)

Todd White has a new fund-raising video for his $19 million property acquisition, and he's holding back the tears as he fawns over Word of Faith superstar, Kenneth Copeland, his "mentor and spiritual father." Notice how Kenneth Copeland compares not giving to Todd White to be as unthinkable as not giving to the Apostle Paul: 

 

Kenneth Copeland is 100% clear about it: Christians are supposed to be RICH.

Here are a few clips from his own magazine, "The Believer's Voice of Victory"

Kenneth Copeland has a huge head start on Todd White; here's his mansion (with his own personal airport!) worth well over $6 million:

copelandmansion-175e54e7387052a6fb21a4b01583af05fc35327e-s900-c85.jpg

 

Todd White, the latest Word of Faith professional speaker, has this tiny little mansion worth just over $1 million, but with the help of his gazillionaire mentor, he can probably upgrade much sooner than expected:

And this world is fading away, along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever."

 

Here's Kenneth Copeland teaching heresy a long time ago and very recently (with Todd White approving):

 

This partnership between Todd White and Kenneth Copeland is NOT a one time fluke; White has been a guest speaker at Copeland's events:

And no, this isn't fake; this began because Todd White sent a message to Spencer Study, who was commenting on Todd's Facebook wall, encouraging people to stop following Todd White. Spencer asked Todd if he was sinless because he'd heard him talk as if he was sinless many times in the past. Since this article came out on Oct. 11, Todd White (or his staff) is now on damage control; claiming that "someone out there is trying to make Todd look like a false teacher and putting clips and/or teachings together out of context and making fake accounts impersonating Todd. He never said that he was sinless."

This is THE STORY THAT LIFESTYLE MINISTRIES (TODD WHITE) IS USING TO EXPLAIN "WHAT REALLY HAPPENED"

This is THE STORY THAT LIFESTYLE MINISTRIES (TODD WHITE) IS USING TO EXPLAIN "WHAT REALLY HAPPENED"

But in his comments Todd White is clearly making himself equal to God, and he is clearly claiming to live without sin. Maybe he believes in imputed righteousness, but it's not a part of this dialogue. This is the old "Manifested Sons of God" doctrine being put on display.

UPDATE: Here is a 9 minute conversation between Steve Kozar (the author of this article) and Spencer Study (the guy who took this screenshot where Todd said "I am sinless")

 

I, Steve Kozar, the guy who wrote this article about Todd White (and a bunch of other articles about false teachers in the church) make NO MONEY from doing this! I am a volunteer doing this because I want to warn people. (Clarification: A few people have purchased my $30 watercolor prints from the Pirate Bakesale, so that makes me about a $120 per YEAR)

Now here's the gigantic mansion where Todd White lives:

Todd White is a HUGE fan of "Word of Faith" superstar, Kenneth Copeland. Here's what Kenneth Copeland believes:

Here are a bunch of clips where Todd White claims to be without sin:

 

 

Todd White openly claims that he can cause people to become Christians and there's no way they can get out of it:

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
— Romans 12:3

Here's one of Todd White's supporters giving me some very thoughtful input since I posted this article (notice how he bravely blocked me so that I couldn't respond, just like Todd):

Francis Chan and Todd White Headline Upcoming IHOP Festival of False Teaching

giphy (35).gif

Francis Chan has been a very respected Evangelical pastor and author for over a decade now, but he has taken a very deliberate turn towards the "Signs and Wonders" New Apostolic Reformation-version of Christianity in recent years. Chan does not teach the extreme Word of Faith doctrine at all, in fact, he's been really clear about wanting to stay away from man-centered false teaching altogether. He is to be commended for much of his Bible-based teaching, but that makes it even harder to understand his willingness to partner with IHOP and Todd White.  

Here's a disturbing article that documents his slide towards the doctrinally apostate church: Francis Chan Endorses the Apostate NAR Movement

Francis Chan has been known as someone who has given away most of his income to very charitable causes. He even has a Master of Divinity from the very conservative Master's Seminary where he would have been taught the exact opposite of the New Apostolic Reformation/Word of Faith doctrine that IHOP and Todd White promote. Todd White is happy to make large piles of money and live in a gigantic mansion; how does Chan feel about that? Todd White claims that he can "claim someone who doesn't believe and there's no way they can get out of it." How does Francis Chan feel about Todd White claiming to have the ability to sovereignly elect people?

Francis Chan shows no sign of going to these events as a "missionary" in order to preach a true Gospel message to the people held captive by false teachers like Mike Bickle and Todd White. Instead, he appears to be endorsing a distinctly Charismatic understanding of the Christian faith. And by being a keynote speaker at this gigantic IHOP conference, he seems to be be comfortable with the Dominionist, "Latter Rain/New Apostolic Reformation" type of teaching that IHOP and Todd White are known for.

Watch this emotionally manipulative video about the upcoming "One Thing" conference that IHOP holds every year, and notice the prominent teaching of Dominionism as well:

In the video, Mike Bickle says: "God is raising up a church that is going to be prepared to be the vessels of His glory, to release His glory into the earth this very hour of intense darkness... He says 'the beauty I possess I want to impart to you!'" (Got a Bible verse to back that up, Bickle??)

Todd White says: "Christ coming out of us is His hope revealed!" So, Christ is not revealed in his Word, according to the egomaniac Todd White. This man-centered teaching should come as no surprise, since Todd White is the guy who (literally) claims to "be the Bible." Todd White claims that he is sinless just like Jesus, does Francis Chan agree with this?

Bickle, White, and many other NAR teachers have been pumping people up with this false teaching for decades now. How are they doing at "releasing His glory" and "imparting His beauty" and "becoming the Bible?" This is warmed-over Latter Rain Dominionism that excites people with a false belief in their own greatness (if they just go to enough conferences to learn the secret from the latest guru prancing around on stage).

How long will it be before Francis Chan shares the stage with money-grubbing frauds like Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland? Todd White did just that a month ago:

Benny Hinn Laying Hands on Todd White

How does Francis Chan feel about Todd White calling Prosperity Preacher Kenneth Copeland his mentor and spiritual father? How does Francis Chan feel about Kenneth Copeland (and his amazing eyes)? Here's Todd White praising Kenneth Copeland (and his "amazing eyes"): Todd White Praises Kenneth Copeland, Fangirls Over Copeland’s “Amazing Eyes”

How does Francis Chan feel about Benny Hinn? Todd White radically encountered the Holy Spirit at a Benny Hinn meeting, where he felt electricity "like he was plugged into a light socket," and the ushers on either side of Todd White were thrown "three feet in the air and about ten feet back."

Galatians 1:6-9  “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. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

1 Corinthians 5:11-13  "But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of a brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler-not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those on the outside. Remove the evil person from among you."

Galatians 1:10  “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Titus 2:7-8  “...in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us.”

1 Thessalonians 5:21  “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good...”


"Don't Stop Believing" On The Jim Bakker Show!

giphy (34).gif

Televangelist Paula White and her (third) husband, Jonathan Cain (Paula is his fourth wife) were recently on the Jim Bakker Show. Jonathan Cain is a rock star from the band Journey. He performed his gigantic hit "Don't Stop Believing" on the show. This is really weird:

Maybe somebody should tell these people that this isn't a worship song. The lyrics aren't even totally coherent: "Streetlights people, living just to find emotion..." What the??

Here's the chorus and outro lyrics:

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlights people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night

Don’t stop believing
Hold on to the feeling
Streetlights people
Don’t stop believing
Hold on
Streetlight people
Don’t stop believing
Hold on to the feeling
Streetlights people
— "Don't Stop Believing" from Journey

Here's the audience joining the worshipful sing-along, (or maybe reliving their high school glory days):

giphy-downsized-large.gif

This strange event really took place, but it came very close to this satirical piece from the satire site, The Babylon Bee: Journey Song Becomes Unlikely Worship Hit After Accidental Christian Radio Broadcast

 

Even Mike Bickle couldn't believe they sang that song:

giphy (32).gif

 

 

Okay, okay, Mike Bickle wasn't on the show that day. But, Mike Bickle was recently on the Jim Bakker Show. He talked all about the "prophet" Bob Jones and a bunch of other weird stuff like he usually does. 

 

By the way, Jonathan Cain told Christians to watch porn with their wives:

"Winner's Church"-Where "Winning Is A Lifestyle!"

The sounds like satire, but it's real:

"Bishop" Fred Shipman is a Bishop because... he sticks the word "Bishop" in front of his name. He has a "Bachelor of Divinity from International Bible Seminary" according to his glowing biography (which even mentions how "down to earth" he is, in spite of calling himself a Bishop!). 

Would you like to get a "Bachelor of Divinity" like "Bishop" Fred Shipman? Just send a check to this online "Seminary"... (You may want to get a degree in Biblical Naturopathy while you're at it)

 

But after you pay your fee you'll have this difficult assignment: "All degree and certificate program requirements may be satisfied by the completion of prescribed curriculum courses. Each course is divided into several modules that consist of readings and selected passages from the New and Old Testaments. There are questions at the end of each section that are to be answered before going on to the next section. Each module contains a mixture of multiple choice and true or false questions..."

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 4.25.04 PM.png

Wow! Fill in the multiple choice/true or false questions and you can be the Bishop of your own church!!

Of course, if you want to be like "Bishop" Fred Shipman, remember that he: "operates in his giftings as a visionary, motivator, and speaker." 

My dearest Timothy, as you serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, remember to operate in your giftings as visionary, motivator and speaker. Tell people that they are winners!

Word of Faith Superstar Kenneth Copeland Proven 100% WRONG (and Nobody Cares)

WeatherWarriorKennethCopeland.jpg
Hurricane_Harvey_Special_Report.gif

Kenneth Copeland is probably the most prominent Word of Faith "preacher" in the world today. He learned his Word of Faith doctrine directly from the "father" of the Word of Faith movement: Kenneth Hagin. Although he speaks with tremendous conviction and authority, what he says is 100% false. But Copeland's followers just don't care.

“For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.”

— 2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12

Word of Faith followers are truly delusional, so Copeland will remain filthy rich and extremely powerful no matter how wrong he might be. And he couldn't possibly be more wrong than he was here... 

Here's Kenneth Copeland teaching some really bad theology and then failing completely at commanding Hurricane Irma (after he failed to stop Hurricane Harvey):

Here's a video from Kenneth Copeland Ministries own YouTube channel, featuring Copeland's daughter, Teri Copeland Pearsons, who explains exactly how to control the weather (which she utterly fails to do, just like her Dad):

Word of Faith doctrine is based on delusional ideas that come more from the "Mind Science" cults that developed in the 1800s than they do from the Bible. These false teachers quote the Bible, but they twist God's Word whenever they do.

Here's Kenneth Copeland's wife, Gloria, claiming that her husband controls the weather whenever he wants to:

Here's "7 Mountain Mandate" expert, Lance Wallnau claiming he has the authority to control yet another hurricane so he can save Puerto Rico after failing completely at "commanding the millibars" just a few weeks earlier:

 

If Word of Faith "Weather Warriors" were a drinking fountain:

This blatantly false Word of Faith teaching is getting more and more common in the so-called "Bible-believing" church around the world, yet practically none of today's prominent megachurch pastors are saying a thing to refute it. In fact, it appears that this ridiculous Word of Faith teaching is becoming the new normal. At least Dr. Michael Brown had the sense to refute these "Weather Warriors," (after he was forced to comment about it), but it remains to be seen if he or any other big name Charismatic "experts" will take a public stand to correct false doctrine.

Delusion on Parade: Word of Faith "Weather Warriors" Ignore Reality

images.jpg

We recently exposed the crazy false teachings of Kat Kerr about controlling the weather here and here. What is truly amazing, frustrating and revealing, are the comments from Kat Kerr's followers on her Facebook page. These people (mostly women) call themselves "Weather Warriors" because they believe they can control the weather. These are not people who want to deal with reality. They live in a tightly contained bubble of Word of Faith heresy and Dominionist fantasies.

They are under a delusion and they LIKE IT.  

For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
— 2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12

These Weather Warriors truly believe they are able to control the weather, and nothing will hinder that belief, not even the obvious inability to control the weather. They are displaying something known as "Confirmation Bias." People can pour their own subjective, irrational ideas into a group and/or belief system and create a sense of meaning and purpose. As example of this, here's a video about young men who have created as sense of purpose and community around the cartoon "My Little Pony:"

Here's a video about a guy who just stares at people without saying a word, and people stand in line to buy tickets just to stare back at him:

 

So, even though Kat Kerr taught her followers that they could confidently send hurricane Irma into the Atlantic ocean where it would dissipate, the storm ignored all of their proclamations and continued on its path of death and destruction. This was...

BIG Failure # 1 

But this didn't convince her gullible followers that something was wrong. Word of Faith teaching says that we must continue to make forceful declarations about whatever it is we want God to do, and He will have no choice but to obey our commands of faith. This is why they continue proclaiming "victory" and "glory" in spite of obvious failure. WOF teaching stresses the importance of people agreeing on something in order to make it happen. They believe we should thank God for the thing He hasn't done yet, because apparently that shows our tremendous faith and forces Him to do OUR will. What they don't realize is that this totally disregards God's sovereign will and makes God out to be a puppet of human manipulation. Here are just a few comments from delusional Word of Faith believers agreeing with Kat Kerr's failure to control a hurricane:

After about three days of utterly failing to control the hurricane, Kat Kerr claimed that she made a slight mistake: she claimed that hurricane Irma was continuing on its course to Florida because Florida was in a drought and needed water. This was a last ditch effort to explain her inability to control the hurricane. This was...

BIG failure #2

Here's the drought map for the week (notice that Florida is NOT having any drought at all):

Screen Shot 2017-09-10 at 5.43.50 PM.png

 

At this point one would hope that her followers would catch on to this scam. Nope. Here's how they respond to her feeble story about sending the hurricane to Florida to help the (pretend) drought...

Screen Shot 2017-09-10 at 5.11.28 PM.png

Notice the last comment: this lady basically says: "Thanks for your generous offer to send a hurricane in our direction, but we're not having a drought. But thanks so much for involving us in this grand delusion of being Weather Warriors!" 

Here are some more confused and delusional comments:

At 7 pm on September 10th this is what the gigantic storm looked like as it pummeled Florida:

And, believe it or not, Kat Kerr was claiming a great victory!

Screen Shot 2017-09-10 at 6.30.57 PM.png

Hurricane Irma swept through the entire state of Florida and continued on into Georgia. This was...

BIG Failure #3

After the hurricane ended and Florida was devastated (not to mention the even worse damage in the Carribbean), Kat Kerr told her Weather Warriors how great they were for doing... something:

Perhaps this comment says it all:

Ultimately, there are people who believe in the Word of Faith version of Christianity (which is not Christianity at all) because they like it, and people like Kat Kerr can make a good living off of them by maintaining and reinforcing their false beliefs.

“But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.” - John 15: 26 (Notice how the Holy Spirit directs our attention to Jesus, not to controlling the weather and dominating the earth) 
“Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and held together by the joints and ligaments, grows with a growth which is from God.” -Colossians 2: 18-19 (Kat Kerr is a master of the "humble brag" and claims to have regular visits to heaven where she gets new revelation directly from God)
“If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.” - 1 Timothy 6: 3-5 (Kat Kerr advocates a different doctrine)

Visual Proof That Modern Churches are (Much) Better

Kat Kerr Moves Goalposts not Hurricanes

KerrLead09092017a.jpg

Kat Kerr would like you to believe she can move hurricanes, but really all she can move are her own delusional prophetic goal posts. 

In a previous video she tried to convince us she could make the hurricane go off into the ocean. Then she must have observed Irma's change in direction on her smartphone weather app. Instead of going off into the Atlantic, Irma took a turn west.

To save face Kerr uploaded a new video. 

Now she says western Florida is in a drought and needs rain. She's now giving the hurricane permission to bring needed rain to western Florida, but she's not going to allow the hurricane to cause damage.

The idea that Christians can command the weather is nonsense. Yes Jesus did command a storm in Mark 4:39. Yes Jesus did say we'd do works like he did and greater in John 14:12. This does not mean we are given authority over the weather.

Jesus commanded the weather to show us that He is God, not to be an example of something we can do. This idea that we can command weather is not something the apostles taught or practiced. The apostles didn't command good weather in Acts 17 to stop a famine. Paul didn't command the weather to stop a storm in Acts 27.

Surely they would have commanded the famine to stop or the storm to cease if Jesus taught this nonsense. I doubt our modern day "apostles" have a corner on truth that inspired authors of scripture didn't have.
