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.
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):
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...
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!
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)
