Who are the false Pastors and Teachers of our Day?

Deceptive Thoughts

Christians all over the world are struggling with tempting, condemning and mocking thoughts. Where are those thoughts coming from? Do we personally come up with such thoughts as a means of self-torture or loathing? Is this just self-talk, or could we be paying attention to a deceiving spirit, which Paul warned about in 1 Timothy 4:1: “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons”?

The fact that Satan is capable of putting thoughts in our minds is clearly taught in Scripture. It was recorded in 1 Chronicles 21:1 that “Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel.” What is wrong with taking a census? Shouldn’t David know the strength of his military? This passage reveals the subtle nature of Satan and his strategies. Satan knew that David had a whole heart for God and would not willingly or knowingly defy the Lord. Satan’s strategy was to get David to put his confidence in his resources rather than God’s resources, which is a major issue to this day. Joab knew it was wrong and tried to stop David, but the king overruled him (see verses 3-4). Thousands died as a result of David’s sin.

How did Satan incite David? Did he talk audibly to him? No, the idea for the census came from David’s mind—it was his idea, or at least he thought it was. Therein lies the deception. Deceiving thoughts often come “first person singular” in such a way that we think they are our thoughts. If we knew the true source of them, then we would no longer be deceived.

The origin of negative “self-talk” could certainly be our old nature or the world, but that was not the case for Judas. “During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him” (John 13:2, NASB). We may be tempted to think this was just a bad decision prompted by the flesh, but that is not what Scripture says. Being a thief is probably what made Judas vulnerable, but it doesn’t explain from where the idea came. When Judas realized that he had been deceived, he took his own life (see Matthew 27:5).

In the earliest days of the Church, God struck down Ananias and Sapphira because they had kept back half of their property and allowed the Church community to think they had given it all (see Acts 5:1-2,5-10). The judgment seems rather severe for the crime, but Peter reveals why the Lord intervened: “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit?” (Acts 5:3). God had to send a powerful message to the Early Church, because He knew what the real battle was.

If Satan and his demons can deceive us into believing a lie, they can exert some control over our lives with disastrous results. Any lie we believe, regardless of its source, will have a negative effect on how we live. To whoever or whatever we yield ourselves to, to that we shall be controlled. The word “filled” in Acts 5:3 is the same word used in Ephesians 5:18, where we are admonished to be “filled” with the Holy Spirit. This strategy is not new. Eve was deceived and she believed a lie.

This is why it is imperative to bring your thoughts before the cross, daily. Think about it from a counseling perspective called cognitive behavioral therapy, which I believe is biblical breathed. One of the main precepts to this therapy approach is recognizing that every emotional response has a thought attached. Meaning, it is the thought that elicits the emotional response which in turn causes a  behavioral experience. Thought-Feeling-Behavioral response. So if God allows satan access to our thoughts, when we speak out demons are subjected to knowing our thought and feelings and response behaviors, why would we not seek God’s counsel for ourselves?   We are so caught up in finding a quick solution to study or join in on the follower mentality of popular or mainstream leaders/teachers/pastors because they sound good but no one bothers to check them out. What are they really saying? Is there deception in their words or complete truth? Just because something looks good, sounds and feels good doesn’t mean it’s good at all.

DECEPTION is the game changer here. This is the one thing satan and his emissaries bank on. Just enough truth with a little dash of lie is all it takes to fall into deception and blindly follow those who, we think, are good intentioned peoples.

I say, just read the bible for yourself, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and ask Christ to speak to your heart for greater understanding every time you open his word. What ever bible you prefer, if you ask for protection and Holy Spirit direction, truth will find you.

  • Here is a list of some of the mainstream ministries that are liars and  deceivers based on their proclaimed truth that does not fall into alignment with the word of GOD. Some may surprise you!

Why these men are false teachers and prophets…..

Benny Hinn is about the most sought after false prophet and teacher today. Benny Hinn falsely predicted that all the homosexuals in America would die by fire in the late 1990’s. Benny Hinn has confessed that there are 9 beings within the Godhead. 3 beings (Tritheism) each having their own trinity of beings within each. Benny Hinn teaches word-faith doctrine. Benny Hinn stated on TBN that after his crusade in South America in 2002, that he was certain that he would return to America with video footage of Jesus appearing on stage during the crusades, because Jesus had told him this was going to happen. Hinn also stated that very soon people would no longer need to take their deceased loved ones to the morgue. Instead, stated Hinn, they should be placed in front of the television during the airing of TBN and they would rise from the dead. We don’t have enough paper to list all of the falseness of Hinns ministry.

T.D. Jakes denies the Trinity. That makes his church a cult. Jakes has many other false teachings including word-faith, and the prosperity gospel.

Robert Schuller, is a positive thinking guru who denies essential Christian doctrine.

Marilyn Hickey is a word-faith teacher teaching false doctrine. One of her tapes records her having a conversation with her billfold, commanding the billfold to fill itself with greenbacks.

Paul Crouch is responsible for an unending open door welcoming false teachers and prophets to his pulpit no matter how outlandish their their aberant teachings may be. Croch has publicly stated that anyone who tests the teaching of any ministers on his programs will go straight to hell. Crouch has openly stated his desire to kill Christian apologists who point out heresy preached on his stations.

Rod Parsley is a word-faith preacher who specializes in whipping up his audiences into altered states of consciousness. His outlandish style is attractive to people who get emotionally carried away by repetitive music and mantras.

R.W. Shambach is an incredible con-artist used by CBN to raise money during their telethons. With scare tactics and false teaching, Shambach surgically convinces thousands to send their money to finance the heretical TBN .

Carlton Pearson has even been attacked by false teachers like T.D. Jakes for his support of the “doctrine of exclusion.” This doctrine tries to reconcile Christianity and Islam, claiming the 2 religions are completely compatible.

John Avanzinni is a name-it-and-claim-it mega-star used by TBN whenever they want to promote the hundredfold blessing. Avanzinni also promotes the heresy that God’s reason for creating humanity is to duplicate himself.

Kenneth & Gloria Copeland have one of the largest false ministries and influences in America. Copeland teaches that Adam was an exact duplicate of God. Copeland teaches that Jesus became a demonic being when he was crucified and had to go to hell and be born again. The Copelands attempt to specialize in word-faith teaching. Copeland calls God, the biggest loser in the Bible, and says Jesus was not God during his earthly life.

John Hagee calls Covenant Theologians heretics, because they do not make a distinction between the church and Israel in the New Testament. Branding them as the “carriers of Hitler’s annointing”, Hagee divides the body of Christ on secondary issues. Hagee is also extremely dogmatic in his eschatology, failing to understand that there are many diverse interpretations acceptable within the pale of orthodoxy.

Jessie Duplantis‘ ministry is riddled with errors. Presenting his messages with humor, Duplantis is a typical word-faith clone of Ken Copeland, often preaching from Copeland’s pulpit.

Oral Roberts and son, Richard Roberts are both word-faith con-artists. Oral is the originator of the seed-faith doctrine. Have a need? Plant a seed. Large amounts of cash make the best seed for planting. Both men practice cultic doctrines of bringing their chorts into altered states of consciousness

Ellen G. White A site that exposes the apostasy of Ellen G. White, the cofounder of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.Putting White to the Test Proof that Ellen G. White was a false prophet.7th Day Adventism Renounced D.M. Canright, was a former member of the General Conference Committee of the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA). He was one of only three members serving on the council, along with SDA cofounder James White and one Mr. Haskell, making him one of the three highest officials in the SDA. Prior to leaving the SDA Canright was a teacher of theology in the SDA college at Battle Creek. He was writing the lessons for all their SDA Sabbath Schools throughout the world. He had the charge of some eighteen SDA churches in Michigan. He was a member of the Executive Committee of the International Sabbath School Association. He was member of the Executive Committee of the Michigan State Sabbath School Association. At the session of the general conference before he left the SDA, he was chairman of the International Sabbath School Association, and was on nine different committees, several of which were the most important committees in the general conference (e.g., the committee on distribution of laborers throughout the world, the theological committee, the committee on camp meetings, the committee on a special course of study at the SDA college, and the committee on the improvement of the SDA ministry). The SDA published over twenty different publications written by Canright. The circulation of Canrights publications reached into the hundreds of thousands. Canright ultimately came to realize the doctrinal bankruptcy of the SDA and left the organization. He became a Baptist minister and in 1914 he wrote a book (hyperlinked at left) which exposed the evils of the SDA and the apostasy of the SDA founders, Ellen G. White and her husband, James White. Canright was an insider who speaks from authority. He also proves, through a thorough review of scripture, the theological errors of the SDA.

Mormon Evil Exposed Read the undeniable evidence that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, the founders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS), were pagan Freemasons. The LDS, founded in 1830 after the nationwide upheaval over the murder by Freemasons of Captain Morgan, is nothing more than Freemasonry reconstituted to appear as a Christian church. In reality it is a soul damning pagan organization, which denies Christ and worships Lucifer.Mormonism Explained The secret cabalistic doctrines of the Mormon “church” revealed. While this website has excellent information on the evil doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon church), it contains some doctrines which are contrary to sound biblical doctrine. For example on the website it states: “Our eternal destiny (heaven or hell) is based entirely upon personal choices we make based upon our own free will. If we end up in hell, we can only blame ourselves!” That is directly contrary to what God states in the Holy Bible. The reality is that man’s will is not free, it is enslaved to sin. Man will not serve God nor seek God, because man is spiritually dead. “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.” Romans 3:10-11. It is God’s will that is free not man’s will, and by his grace we are born again. God does the choosing, not man. James 1:18. We are saved by the sovereign grace of God. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8. It is by the will of God, not by the will of man that one is saved. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13.
Masons and Mormons Audio sermons on Freemasonry and Mormonism.
Judaism is Antichrist The words “Judaism is antichrist” here are being used to describe the nature of Judaism. The pope of Rome is “the” antichrist (noun). The commonly used term “Judeo-Christian tradition” is an oxymoron. There can no more be a Judeo-Christian tradition than there can be a Catholic-Christian, Islamic-Christian, or a Satanic-Christian tradition. All of those religions art antithetical to Christianity. Those religions are antichrist, and as such there can be no religious agreement between them and Christianity.
Allah the Moon god Read the excellent online bible tract that explains that Allah is actually the pagan moon god.
The Pilgrimage Read another tract that explains the eternal consequences of Islam.
Protestants No More A Protestant used to be a Christian who fearlessly preached the gospel and protested against the antichrist church of Rome. That is no longer the case. Why? Because Satan and his Roman church have actively worked to undermine the Protestant churches.

This bible tract by Jack Chick (now out of print) is an excellent summary of the steps the Roman Catholic Church has taken to undermine the former Protestant churches. There is only a small remnant of true Protestants remaining; nowadays almost none of the nominal Protestant churches preach the gospel or protest against the hellish doctrines and practices of Rome.
Modern Apostasy Exposed This website of Cephas Ministry contains lots of valuable information on the false doctrines in the Mormon Church, Jehovah Witnesses, the RCC, and other anti christian organizations. In addition, the website exposes the unbiblical teachings of T.D. Jakes, Paul Crouch, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, E.V. Hill, Peter Popoff, Creflo Dollar, Bob Larson, and many other wolves in sheep’s clothing.
