"… if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20

General Articles
(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 ..."

(37) They Weave The Spider's Web by C. H. Spurgeon, Morning And Evening, August 8
"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.

(39) A Few Interesting Stories compiled by Sandy Simpson, 9/00
"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?"

(46) Where Were You? by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, 12/10/01
"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.

(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.

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.

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. 

(76) E. Bernard Jordan: Prophets Prophesying Falsely by Chrystal, Slaughter Of The Sheep, 6/19/10
I shake my head when I think that people actually believe men like Jordan speak for God.  They’re setting the bar pretty low, wouldn’t you say? 

(77) Get a Prayer Cloth Soaked with Oil from Joshua Mills’ Feet by Chrystal, Slaughter of the Sheep, 7/7/10
"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?


William Branham

(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."

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?


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? 

(2) Another Former Cerullo Associate Accuses Him Of Fund-Raising Fraud by Alex Roth, San Diego Union Tribune, June 24, 2000
"Suit says promises to donors not kept." Since the time of this lawsuit being filed it has been dismissed in California.  Here is the story.  A appeal is likely.  Here is a quote from the attorneys for John Warren: "A California court has thrown out part of a lawsuit accusing globetrotting evangelist Morris Cerullo of fraud and deception. 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.

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.

"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!"


Jesse Duplantis

(1) Jesse Duplantis' Whopper by Inner-City Christian Discernment Ministry, 1998
I recognize it is a serious thing to charge a fellow "minister" with lying, but I am given no other choice.  Jesse Duplantis is growing ever more popular by the day, yet he consistently refuses to answer questions about what he teaches or the statements he makes. 

(2) Jesse Duplantis Quotes by Bob Hunter, The Contenders
Jesse tells a lady in a wheelchair and a woman with cancer that they don't need to be in that situation... Jesse on prosperity... It is recorded... The importance of having wealth.

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. 


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”.

John Hinkle

(1) John Hinkle's Failed Prophecy by Jackie Alnor, The Christian Sentinal, 9/94
"What is John Hinkle's explanation for the apparent failure of his prophecy that God would rip the evil out of this world on Thursday, June 9, 1994? 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."

(2) Deception In The Church (Hogan Not A Hero) by Brian Karjala
"In September of 1997 at (Ted Haggard's) New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO, I attended a Sunday night service at the urging of a family member who had heard great things about a traveling evangelist who was scheduled to visit.  The evangelist's name was David Hogan. 

 

Manasseh Jordan

(1) Manasseh Jordan: Letter to the People of St. Kitts and Nevis by Bud Press, 10/6/10
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. These people claim to be Christian, but in reality they are false prophets, false teachers, and false healers.

"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."

(5) "T.B. Joshua Is After My Life" - Okotie by Segun Fatuase,This Day (Lagos), November 22, 2001
In what appears to be a deadly dimension to the ongoing war of the pastors, the Head of the Household of God Church, Reverend Chris Okotie, has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Mr Musiliu Smith, over an alleged threat to his life by Pastor T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue of All Nations.

"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."

(8) Kenya Times Report: Maitreya, Akatsa & Bonnke Kenya Times. First published in the Kenya Times, 22 June 1988. 
"About 6,000 worshippers at Muslim Village, Kawangware, Nairobi, (Kenya) believe they saw Jesus Christ, in broad daylight last week."

(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.

(13) News Flash! at Herescope, 3/4/09
If you haven't been over to Constance Cumbey's blog lately, now is a good time to take a look. She has been posting updates on the latest maneuvers of a false messiah who calls himself "Maitreya." See her recent posts February 27th and March 1st which discuss an advertising blitz in Texas announcing the reappearance of this New Age "christ."


Arnold Murray

(1) The Cultic Teachings Of Arnold Murray by Creation Research Institute, 1999
False teachings of Arnold Murray and Shepherd's Chapel.

(2) The Cultic Teachings Of Arnold Murray by Christian Research Institute 
"A teacher who has become popular over television is a man named Arnold Murray of the Shepherd's Chapel in Gravette, Arkansas. We at the Christian Research Institute do not endorse the teachings of Arnold Murray. This paper will demonstrate why we consider Mr. Murray's teachings to be heretical."

(3) Arnold Murray - The Shepherd's Chapel by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, 6/00
"The message Arnold Murray is spreading is cultic and is lethal to one's spiritual life and soul. He is divisive on almost all points of core beliefs."


Carlton Pearson

(1) Carlton Pearson And Universalism by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, 7/00
When I watched Pearson on Politically Correct hosted by Bill Mahr last year, he had next to nothing to say to people who were flaunting their sin and making evil statements. I thought how can this representative of the gospel be silent in the face of this? 

(2) The Influence of Universalism on Society and the Church by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, 7/00
There are many who hold to this concept of all religions being of equal status.


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.


Pat Robertson

(1) Pat Robertson, False Prophet, Again by Jacob Prasch, Moriel Ministries, 10/04
Another false prophecy associated with Pat Robertson.

(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? 

(4) Pat Robertson's 700 Club by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 2/09
7000 who have not bowed their knees to charismatic ecumenism.

(5) Pat Robertson does not hear from God & other false prophets by Jackie Alnor, 1/11/11
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.


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.

Things are really gearing up for the Jubilee 2000 celebration around the world.  All the "biggies" will apparently be there to "ride the beast".


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.
