Francis Chan Promoting Benny Hinn and Rodney Howard-Browne

Here’s a video showing Francis Chan promoting “The Send” where he was a speaker along with many false teachers, such as Todd White, Lou Engle, Bill Johnson and these two complete heretics who finished up the conference:

Benny Hinn and Rodney Howard-Browne:

Here are some more videos on these (really) false teachers:

Christalignment Bethel Fortune-Telling New Age Naked with Jesus Extravaganza!

Last year we made a big deal about the Australian organization called “Christalignment” and its pagan practices covered in a sugary Christian coating. Well, there’s more.

Thanks to the Encounter Gospel of Christalignment, one lady had an encounter where “Jesus” petted her while she was completely naked. Here’s the latest Fighting for the Faith video on this topic.

Christalignment is a very small group that was briefly scolded by Bethel Super Apostle, Kris Vallotton, who thought the idea of “Christian tarot cards” was “insane” and whoever was doing this needed to “repent and stop the craziness…”

25158017_10105252177251690_7992169858875559773_n.jpg

Kris Vallotton removed his post the next day and did a 180 degree flip flop-he endorsed his new Christalignment friends, while he also attempted to blame the “fake news media” for creating the problem (you know, his post on his Facebook page). Read about the whole story here: Kris Vallotton RUNS From His Own Facebook Post!!

Bethel Church is one of the biggest, most influential churches in the world, and they support the New Age Fortune-Telling “ministry” of Christalignment 100%.

Here’s a post where Christalignment is welcoming the “lovely Bethel crew:”

The Bethel team “rocked it” at the Christalignment booth:

Jenny Hodge is the mother of Bethel missionary, Ben Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald is the director of Awakening Australia, which had Christalignment as a supporting ministry (and Bill Johnson as a featured speaker).

Here are some photos from the Hodge’s Facebook account to show people the ministry work of Christalignment:

Here’s a promotional video where a Christalignment worker explains what services they offer:

To hear a very detailed (and disturbing!) interview with Jenn Hodges, check out this recent podcast:



The Christalignment team is convinced that their sort of “undercover” approach to ministry is the only way to reach the non-Christian world. While it is a great goal to reach unbelievers with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, it does not do any good if they never hear the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. The foundational message of Jesus dying for the redemption of guilty sinners seems to be completely missing from the Christalignment “gospel.” In video after video, people who have an “encounter” in a “Destiny Reading” are always “at peace with who they are,” or they “feel encouraged to continue on the path they’re on.” What is the point of reaching people just so they can continue believing the same thing they believed all along?

We encourage everyone to go out and preach the Gospel, but it only matters if it really is the Gospel.

God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
— Romans 5:8
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
— John 3:16-17
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
— 1 Peter 2:24-25
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.
— Romans 3:23-25
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
— 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Todd White Exposed-Fake Leg Lengthening Trick!

The following short clip was taken from the new movie The American Gospel: Christ Alone:

When this clip was posted to social media, most of the comments were positive, however, when we look at negative comments from Todd White supporters it is very revealing. Anyone who watches this clip (whether they’re a Christian or not) can see that Todd White is performing a cheap parlor trick-he is not making a leg miraculously grow. There are plenty of videos on YouTube that have exposed this fraudulent leg lengthening trick for years. Everyone can see the trick with their own eyes… except those who refuse to see it.

Here’s a harsh reality: We are, in many cases, dealing with the type of thought control and thinking patterns associated with religious cults. None of the Word of Faith/New Apostolic Reformation supporters will deal with the reality that Todd White is scamming people with his fraudulent leg-lengthening trick. Instead, they attack the critics (like me, Steve Kozar, or this film’s maker, Brandon Kimber) as “religious Pharisees.” Darren Wilson, who made the Holy Ghost films that helped bring Todd White to prominence, must retain his followers by avoiding any honest discussion of the obvious trick that Todd White is perpetrating. Todd White will probably never make mention of the American Gospel film by name in public, but we can expect him to make ad hominem attacks against it. We can expect to hear him say something like this: “There’s a heresy hunter movie out there that doesn’t think the Holy Spirit is active in the world anymore… but we know different, don’t we?!”

The Holy Spirit is truly active active in the world today, but He’s not doing street magic and performing psychosomatic healings.

Kevin Zadai Breaks HPM (Heresy Per Minute) World Record!

In the following video, you’ll see a strange mixture of:

  • A Twilight Zone episode,

  • A New Age training session,

  • An insurance salesman who is somehow turned into a carnival barker for the Yak Lady who also has a side job as a fortune-teller that specializes in acquiring retirement accounts from the elderly and senile (oh wait, that was simply a description of Sid Roth)…

    Kevin Zadai has set a new HPM (Heresy Per Minute) world record!

    Watch his video and be amazed:

    https://youtu.be/aWgFWuLPfro

Bonus points will be awarded to anyone who can make it through all 28:31 of this Festival of False Teaching!

In case you’re concerned that this man calls himself “Dr.” Kevin Zadai in spite of not being a doctor, you can rest assured, because he was ordained by “Dr.” Jesse Duplantis (who isn’t a doctor either):

James Goll Gets Discernment 100% WRONG!

TheDiscerner.jpg

The Elijah List sent out this promotion for James Goll’s new book:

The Discerner: Hearing, Confirming, and Acting on Prophetic Revelation -- by James W. Goll

Everything is backwards, upside down and twisted in this strange world of the NAR Super Apostles. Yes, discernment is truly something lacking in the Christian Church today, but with teachers like James Goll it is getting much worse.

Instead of looking to God’s all-sufficient Word, Goll is teaching people to become fortune-tellers and soothsayers, while tacking on a few Bible verse here and there to appear legitimate.

Here’s an awful and blasphemous quote from Goll:

Screen+Shot+2019-01-13+at+6.59.41+PM.jpg

“The Word became flesh” is a reference to Jesus Christ, but Goll gleefully attributes the qualities of God to himself. This is “Blasphemy 101.”

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
— 1 John 1:14

This verse is all about Jesus being the Word that became flesh. Obviously! But James Goll turns it into a verse about us being the word that became flesh. What the?? This is so terribly wrong that maybe James Goll is some obscure cult leader, right?


Nope.


Here are some of the NAR leaders who endorse him and his latest book:

Screen+Shot+2019-01-13+at+7.23.37+PM.jpg
Screen+Shot+2019-01-13+at+7.23.42+PM.jpg

Discernment is what the Holy Spirit gives us THROUGH THE BIBLE! False teachers like James Goll are always giving speeches and writing books that claim to have new information that will help you learn stuff that goes beyond the Bible. On top of that, they end up taking God off the throne and climbing into the driver’s seat themselves.

For more of an explanation, here’s a similar article about Goll’s fellow NARpostle, Jennifer LeClaire:

Jennifer LeClaire Gets Discernment 100% WRONG!

By the way, we expect Dr. Michael Brown to remain silent as his fellow writer commits blasphemy…

God is "Releasing Audacious Exploits in People's Hearts" says Charismatic Clown Ryan LeStrange

person-show-profession-clown-illustration-disguise-683387-pxhere.com.jpg

Ryan LeStrange has a keen ability to say absolutely nothing while using a large number of words. Check out his recent article in Charisma Magazine:

Prophetic Dream: 'I Am Releasing Audacious Exploits in My People's Hearts'

LeStrange wants to be considered an important Apostle and he is doing all the right stuff to advance his standing among gullible Charismatics who desperately seek after the latest new thing. For instance, he pretends that being considered an Apostle is of no value to him, while he tries to validate his “Apostolic position” in the following quote:

I had received an email from one of the prophetic fathers in America. He made a reference to me about being a next-generation apostolic leader on the East Coast. I didn’t give it a lot of thought, but within a few days, I had a series of prophetic dreams about the East/West connection of glory in the United States and the implications for the nations...
— Ryan LeStrange (demonstrating the "Humble Brag")

See what Ryan LeStrange did there? When some big whig prophetic father suggested that LeStrange should be getting an Apostolic promotion he “didn’t give it a lot of thought.” But then God Himself assured him (and us, too, apparently) that LeStrange was really worthy of this Apostolic position (but only for the East coast, for the time being). But then LeStrange says this: “I believe the Father is showing us an East/West glory corridor that is opening up. There is an announcement of reform and glory traveling east to west and west to east. There is a merge of the apostolic and prophetic along with powerful miracle ministry that gets the attention of nations.”

In summary:

  • Ryan LeStrange is an East coast Apostle (but he is too humble to come right out and announce it directly).

  • God is: “releasing audacious exploits in the heart of my people” and “causing old wells to collide with fresh outpourings.”

  • There is an East/West glory corridor thingy opening up.

  • Ryan LeStrange had some dreams that meant something (that only he can really understand).

Do NOT doubt the words of Apostle Ryan LeStrange!

If you think he’s just a bloviating, self-promoting windbag, you really need to read his biographical description on Charisma Magazine (so you know it must be true!):

  • Ryan LeStrange is an apostolic and prophetic revolutionary, laboring to see global awakening.

  • He is the founder and apostolic leader of a global network of ministries known as TRIBE Apostolic Network.

  • He is the senior leader of the iHub movement, planting and overseeing a network of governing churches, apostolic hubs, and revival hubs.

  • Ryan is also a real estate investor who is active in the business arena.

  • Ryan is an accomplished author.

Francis Chan Invites Christians to Become "Wolf Food" at (Yet Another) Conference

Francis Chan is partnering and endorsing false teachers: Todd White, Heidi Baker, Bill Johnson, Mike Bickle, Lou Engle and others at the upcoming “The Send” conference. The Send is the latest version of The Call, except it has the word “Send” where the word “Call” used to be.

Here’s a video where Lou Engle disturbingly rocks back and forth as he explains the whole “The Call has Become The Send” thing; you’ll also see Daniel Kolenda and his gigantic muscles, as well as Benny Hinn’s son-in-law, Michael Koulianos and some YWAM guy with really cool hair as they all walk along the beach in slow motion (so you know this is of God):

The Send promises to be the most important, life-changing conference the world has ever seen-in fact, it’s more than a conference, it’s a double portion conference where everyone is going to be catalyzed to collaborate, so they can be activated with momentum… or something.

This is the conference where lives will forever be changed by getting thousands of people to hold up their shoes:

If my people, who are called by my name, will hold up their shoes in a large gathering, I shall hear their cry, and I will establish an unending speaker circuit where the young and gullible will hear much talk.
— 2 Expectations 6:1-3
SquarePost.png
giphy+(35).gif

Evangelical Superstar, Francis Chan, has fully embraced the New Apostolic Reformation speaker circuit and has become its newest crossover member. Once considered a mainstream, Bible-focused Evangelical, Chan has made it clear that he stands with Todd White, Heidi Baker, Bill Johnson, Lou Engle, Mike Bickle and the rest of the hyper-charismatic, New Order of the Latter Rain, NAR, Signs & Wonders fringe (except that now these people have become so popular that nobody thinks they’re the fringe anymore).

Francis Chan believes this is the kind of conference Jesus would promote.

Watch this video to see Chan’s pleading invitation, and then see the very disturbing manifestations associated with Heidi Baker, Bill Johnson and Mike Bickle:

Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.’
— Matthew 7:15-23

Bill Johnson, Todd White and Company Don't Expect to Heal Deaf Ears at Awakening Australia

Bill Johnson, Todd White and many others like them have said over and over again that a life full of miracles is “normal Christianity.” For an upcoming (yet another) conference called Awakening Australia there is no shortage of Super Apostles who claim to heal people on a daily basis:

Yet the Facebook page for this conference has asked for volunteers to come and do signing for those in attendance who cannot hear. Why is this needed? Shouldn’t Todd White use this as an opportunity to demonstrate his great healing ability?

46024597_1973693966261016_1438501550929477632_n.jpg
maxresdefault-1.jpg

Miracle is his normal life:

Bill Johnson says that miracles are normal, too:

Perhaps they only need hand signers for the first few minutes of the conference, so that they can announce that all of the hearing loss is about to be healed? And then after all hearing loss is healed, maybe the signers will get autographs from Todd White and Bill Johnson, and maybe even a nice tote bag for their efforts? We can hope.

By the way, Ben Fitzgerald is the director of Awakening Australia, and his Mom’s group “Christalignment” is listed as a supporting ministry:

New Comedy from Charlie Shamp: "A New Prophetic Bird is Being Birthed in the Earth"

The following is a silly and incoherent word salad from Charlie Shamp that was (accidentally) published on the Elijah List website as real. Unfortunately, this work of wacky comedy sounded exactly like the other “prophetic words” that the Elijah List posts everyday, so Steve Shultz took it seriously and provided this endorsing preface: “I have come to know Charlie Shamp's prophetic words as being very accurate and timely. I always look forward to reading and hearing what Prophet Charlie Shamp has to share with the Body of Christ. This is a most intriguing word as Charlie shares about new prophetic birds being birthed in this season:”

Charlie Shamp: "A New Prophetic Bird is Being Birthed in the Earth"

CharliShampComedian.jpg


These crazy “prophetic words” are so far away from Biblical Christianity that anyone with an ounce of common sense should see the humor and simply laugh! Clearly, Charlie Shamp is trying his hand at comedy, since his ability to predict the future has failed miserably, and that zany hairstyle is practically shouting: “Hey! This all just a joke, go ahead and laugh at me!!”

Here are some of the outrageous things that Charlie Shamp wrote in his nutty little article about prophetic birds being birthed:

“The Golden Eagle

The golden eagle represented the seer prophets. Those who are given supernatural insights and heavenly revelation through dreams and visions. They carry a wonder-working power of the supernatural. They often manifest unusual wonders and manifestations of the glory.

The Silver Winged Dove

The silver winged dove represented the nabi prophets. Those that spontaneously prophesy as the Spirit moves upon them. They are given a ministry of signs that manifest in the area of deliverance and healing.

The Snow White Owl

The snow white owl represented the prayer and holiness prophets. These are watchers and prophetic intercessors. They are those who the Lord had sent to pray and intercede over cities and nations. From out of this prophetic bird has sprung the prayer and purity revival movements.”

-Comedy from Charlie Shamp


Just to make sure everyone knows this is all in fun, Shamp ends his article with pure nonsense that says absolutely nothing. Check out this hilarious ending paragraph (and try to hold back the laughter!)…

“I believe we are in a season of acceleration in the prophetic. A new mantle is being offered to the Church. God is looking for leaders to unite from these three movements. As they come together in this season, a new, fresh wave of prophetic power will be released upon this young prophetic generation of sons and daughters. It will take the spirit of Elijah coming upon the fathers and mothers to unite the different prophetic movements, but they will release a Bridal company, and a new prophetic bird will be released in the earth, one the world has never seen before.”

Hillsong's Joel Houston Says "Evolution is Undeniable"

WOW Life Church Disco Divine Prophetic Word for 2018

There's a giant new ego in town, and all of the other Seeker-Friendly, Mystical Megachurch pastors are gonna start shaking in their boots when they see this guy...

This is all real; sadly, this is not satire:

WOW Life Church is based in Sri Lanka, but it already has branches in the USA. Here's what they say about their church:

"Forerunners…Prophetic Reformers.. bringing progressive revelations that will not leave Christendom looking the same.

Ministry of Transformation…A place that builds strong foundations and serves solid spiritual food (meats) that will deeply transform the believer inside out.

We are predominantly based in Sri Lanka and also have a growing number of WOW’ers in nations all across the world.

WOW belongs to the Apostolic Diocese of Ceylon (ADC) which is one of the largest charismatic denominations in the country covering over 500 churches."

Todd White: Fabricating a Miracle?

Here is a quick video of Todd White telling two completely different versions of the same story. In the first segment he talks about the time he had to have knee surgery because he was NOT miraculously healed. In the second segment (from a video on his Facebook page last week) he tells the story with a 100% different ending! He claims his knee was miraculously healed on the day he was supposed to have it surgically repaired. 

Attention Todd White: Why don't you release the name of the "Jewish doctor" who observed your miraculous healing so he can verify this story? 

Todd White is a highly paid public speaker, and miraculous stories make more money. In 2015 Todd White made over $600,000! In order to grow his audience, Todd White needs to continually pump himself up as a great man of God; he's a master at the "humble brag."

Just in case you think that Todd White is talking about two separate "torn knee" events:

The God You Should Doubt, According to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark

If you’re looking for guides to teach you how to walk by sight, and to doubt if God loves you in Christ, you really need to listen to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. On the other hand if you prefer to live by faith and not by sight, and don’t want to doubt God’s love for you in Christ, then you probably shouldn’t consult Bill Johnson and Randy Clark...

Bill Johnson and Randy Clark were asked why miracles and healing are so important today. Bill Johnson gave an answer that really doesn’t encourage anyone to stretch their faith, or live by faith at all. He talked about how God has the power and resources to heal.

“If you have resources and you don’t take care of a need, then your love is questioned.” -Bill Johnson

Bill Johnson is giving us room to question God’s love if he doesn’t heal us. Forget about stretching our faith and calling us to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)  Forget about saying that hope that is seen is no hope at all. (Romans 8:24) According to these men, what Jesus did on the cross doesn’t really prove that God does love us in Christ.

Randy Clark also gave a resounding call to live by sight and not by faith. He said that without miracles and healing, the gospel for some is just a moral code or philosophy. Clark gave emphasis to miracles and healing as THE way God shows his glory. That really is a top rate tactic on his part to get us to live by sight. If he wanted to get us to live by faith, he might suggest that the gospel is the very power of God unto salvation. (Romans 1:16)

So if you want the top advocates for living by sight, and doubting if God loves you, listen to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. It’s rather interesting that these two men known for their "amazing faith," are actually better at promoting the exact opposite.

"Come Holy Spirit" Conference: Professional Speakers Need an Audience

Here's yet another conference... the Holy Spirit will "show up" and it'll change the whole world and stuff. If you go to this thing you'll never be same, blah blah blah...

giphy 3.gif

Okay, let's just be honest: These people are professional speakers and if you don't buy tickets to this thing, they won't make any money. 

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 7.35.00 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 7.35.06 PM.png

Here's what the title page says for this conference:

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 7.49.48 PM.png

So they ripped Acts 1:8 out of context and applied it to this conference! Here's more of the passage:

On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. (8) But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
— Acts 1: 4-9

In the very next chapter of Acts, the Holy Spirit (really) fell on people:

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
— Acts 2: 1-4

So the thing that this passage is pointing to has already happened. Read the rest of this chapter-it's an amazing passage of Scripture! We don't need to keep begging the Holy Spirit to fall (unless you want to sell more tickets to yet another conference).

The Holy Spirit has come.

These professional speakers don't want you to know that. They continually tell you that you don't have enough of the Holy Spirit until you buy tickets and go to their events and buy their books and get lulled into a semi-hypnotic state by the soft-rock worship team and then listen to people talk a lot, tell outlandish & unverifiable stories, and twist God's Word while they brag about how humble they are.

By the way, if you're really interested in getting more you can spend an extra $79 for the Premier Ticket to have one "meet and greet session" with a Super Apostle; maybe you'll get an "anointing" or "mantle" or "impartation" or something.

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 7.29.36 PM.png

Most of the 2nd chapter of Acts is the Apostle Peter's terrific sermon, where he tells people the hard truth that they've rejected the Messiah, Jesus, and are guilty of crucifying Him. This is what follows:

Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.
— Acts 2: 37-41

Indeed, let us all "save ourselves from this crooked generation."

Utterly Useless Blathering from Cindy Jacobs & Chuck Pierce

Here's a short video demonstrating the utterly useless "prophetic ministry" of people like Cindy Jacobs and Chuck Pierce. This happened in 2009, and like all of these types of prophetic messages, nothing is clearly being taught of any value, and nothing good happened as a result of this type of rambling, incoherent nonsense.
