Paula White is a Heretic, and You’re a Fool if You Believe Her

Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser has suggested that people send her money in order to transform their lives, or face divine consequences.

Paula White, who heads up the president’s evangelical advisory committee, suggested making a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit,” which she said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary.

“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering,” she said in a video shared to her website, in which she encourages her followers to donate to her ministries to get blessings from God.

“If God doesn’t divinely step in and intervene, I don’t know what you’re going to face—he does,” she said.

She’s a heretic, pure and simple.  And if you listen to her, and send her as much as a penny, you’re a fool.

I Know What Luther Would Say to These ‘Lutherans’- And They Wouldn’t Like It

This essay addresses the recent ‘transgender service’ at a Lutheran ‘Church’ in Minnesota:

There is Christianity.  There is liberal Christianity, which stretches the term considerably.  There is heretical Christianity, which is outside the pale but at least claims to still be Christian.  At what point, though, does a religious expression cease to be Christian altogether?  Consider the “Transgender Day of Remembrance” Communion service at the ELCA’s Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, on November 15.

You can watch the service here, on YouTube.  If you don’t want to watch all 59 minutes, I’ll give you just a few highlights.

Instead of beginning “in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” two of those terms being construed as sexist, the invocation in this service is “in the name of Creator, Christ, and the Holy Breath.”

There is a confession of sins, but it expresses our failure to be wild and free.  The absolution tells us that all shackles are broken and that God accepts us as we are.

The service avoids male terms for God–He, Him, Father, Lord–but then goes all in for gendered language to refer to God.  When it comes time to say the Lord’s Prayer, it is addressed to “Our mother who art in heaven.”

God is thereby transgendered!

We could go on, but let’s stop there.

He doesn’t actually stop.  He just stops talking about the ‘service’.  Read more at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/geneveith/2017/12/is-this-still-christianity/#QVbmOBqpgz2bMzyV.99

I know what Luther would say to that ‘Church’-

Whoever tolerates and listens to you should know that they are listening to the devil himself, incarnate and abominable, as he speaks out of the mouth of a possessed person.

More Pentebabbleist Lunacy- The Bethel ‘School’ of ‘Supernatural’ ‘Ministry’

It’s the first day of Prophecy Week at the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Or, as students here like to call the place, Christian Hogwarts.

The auditorium of the civic center in Redding, California, where first-year students have class, is so full of eager, neatly dressed young people that it’s initially impossible to find a seat. The roomful of some 1,200 students hums with expectant energy: People talk in clusters, clutching their books to their chests and stealing eager glances at the stage. There are so many languages spoken here it’s hard to keep track: English of all flavors, spoken with Australian and British and South African accents; Chinese; Korean; Portuguese. It’s a strange medley for a place like Redding, an economically depressed rural outpost about 200 miles north of San Francisco, in the heart of Northern California’s Trump country.

The students are waiting for today’s lecturer, Kris Vallotton, one of the school’s founders and a prophet so prolific he literally wrote the book on it — Basic Training for the Prophetic Ministry, a combined textbook and workbook used by Bethel students to learn how to hear, and speak, God’s words. (“Name the five things that distinguish a false prophet from a true prophet.” “What is the difference between a vision and a trance?”)

The basic theological premise of the School of Supernatural Ministry is this: that the miracles of biblical times — the parted seas and burning bushes and water into wine — did not end in biblical times, and the miracle workers did not die out with Jesus’s earliest disciples. In the modern day, prophets and healers don’t just walk among us, they are us.

To Bethel students, learning, seeing, and performing these “signs and wonders” — be it prophesying about things to come or healing the incurable — aren’t just quirks or side projects of Christianity. They are, in fact, its very center.

What garbage.  Luther and the rest were right about these fanatical spiritualists- they are driven by Satan.

No One on Trump’s ‘Religious Advisory Council’ Has Tweeted a Single Admonition to Him

It’s quite telling that the very people who are positioned to say something to Trump and have a hearing have said nothing.  These are his sycophants, deniers of the Gospel, and damnable heretics on his council-

· Michele Bachmann – Former Congresswoman
· A.R. Bernard – Senior Pastor and CEO, Christian Cultural Center
· Mark Burns – Pastor, Harvest Praise and Worship Center
· Tim Clinton – President, American Association of Christian Counselors
· Kenneth and Gloria Copeland – Founders, Kenneth Copeland Ministries
· James Dobson – Author, Psychologist and Host, My Family Talk
· Jerry Falwell, Jr. – President, Liberty University
· Ronnie Floyd – Senior Pastor, Cross Church
· Jentezen Franklin – Senior Pastor, Free Chapel
· Jack Graham – Senior Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church
· Harry Jackson – Senior Pastor, Hope Christian Church
· Robert Jeffress – Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church of Dallas
· David Jeremiah – Senior Pastor, Shadow Mountain Community Church
· Richard Land – President, Southern Evangelical Seminary
· James MacDonald – Founder and Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel
· Johnnie Moore – Author, President of The KAIROS Company
· Robert Morris – Senior Pastor, Gateway Church
· Tom Mullins – Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship­
· Ralph Reed – Founder, Faith and Freedom Coalition
· James Robison – Founder, Life OUTREACH International
· Tony Suarez – Executive Vice President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
· Jay Strack – President, Student Leadership University
· Paula White – Senior Pastor, New Destiny Christian Center
· Tom Winters – Attorney, Winters and King, Inc.
· Sealy Yates – Attorney, Yates and Yates

None of these persons behaves as a Christian.  Sadly, not even the Southern Baptists on the list.

Ed Young, Joel Osteen and TD Jakes… Houston’s Silent Millionaires and Hurricane Harvey

So, given their resources and their massive bank accounts funded by the fleeced flocks they deceive weekly, what exactly are these three pseudo-Christians doing to help their city?  Opening their churches to the displaced?  Paying for hotel rooms and food and clothing?  Anything?  At all?

These three love to self promote but they’re being very quiet these days… I wonder why…

Pentebabbleist Denunciations

When Bill Clinton was President, Pat Robertson and his ilk blamed every natural disaster that came along on Presidential misdeeds.  The same was true when Barack Obama was President.  Curiously, that wasn’t the case when either of the Bush’s were President nor has it been the case during the Trump ‘Presidency*’.

Clearly, then, for Robertson and the other weather/ nature interpreting Pentebabbleists it really isn’t about God’s purported will (which they don’t know anyway); it’s about a political statement.

If you want to find a false teacher, look for inconsistency.  Where there is inconsistency, there is falsehood.  The greatest sign of false teaching is inconsistent teaching

Pat Robertson et al are false teachers.  No Christian should follow them.  None.  To do so is to attach oneself to heresy.

The Bee Stings The Heretic Osteen

But a bit unrealistically, because Osteen has never actually opened a bible.

After overhearing a pair of Christians discuss 2 Timothy 2:15 in a local coffee shop, pastor and teacher Joel Osteen reportedly discovered for the first time the concept of “rightly dividing the Word of truth.” Inspired by this newfound revelation of how ministers and lay believers alike are to approach the Scriptures, the Lakewood pastor reportedly retrieved a pair of shears and a Bible from his briefcase to try it out for himself.

“Let me just try this—ow! Shoot!” patrons at the cafe heard him exclaim. Shortly thereafter, Osteen was rushed to the hospital with multiple lacerations to his hand and forearm.

The best the minister could piece together, he had attempted to use the shears to rightly divide the Bible he happened to have in his briefcase, and had somehow mangled the Scriptures beyond all recognition, inadvertently wounding himself with several cuts to his hand in the process.

“It was a real whoops-a-daisy!” a smiling Osteen told reporters gathered around his Houston hospital bed Wednesday morning, his hand completely wrapped in thick gauze. “Sometimes we fall down and make mistakes—the Bible calls this ‘boo-boos.’ But the good news is we can declare victory over our hangups and move forward!”

At publishing time, Osteen had been released with strict instructions not to go anywhere near either sharp objects or copies of the Bible, lest he hurt himself and others.
