Billy Madison is Every Biblical Dilettante

When a Springfield, Missouri-area man’s friend said recently that he’d witnessed a woman’s amputated toes grow back during a prayer session at a Missouri megachurch, he and his wife “just kind of laughed it off and rolled our eyes about it.”
But the next day, the man—who said he identifies as a Christian—decided it wasn’t a laughing matter.
“They exploited her,” he told The Daily Beast.
“I am 100 percent against faith healers,” he said, asking to remain nameless so as not to create interpersonal issues around town. “…If it happened they should be able to present proof.”
Etc. Which do read. And if you attend a megachurch, flee Sodom.
If you look at this photo of MacArthur talking to a group of people you’ll notice that there are no women present. Why? Because women are too smart to listen to that heretic. Men, on the other hand, and mostly white men in particular lap up the heretical swill with reckless abandon.
NB- Now is as good a time as any to remind you that complementarianism springs from hell’s pit.
Any Pastor who tells you that you should put your money in his (or her) church instead of in a bank is the Pastor of a fraud.
He is wrong for the following reasons:
MacArthur appears to believe that men are the gods women must worship in order to be happy and fulfilled. And that their sole function is giving birth. And that is damnable.
MacArthur is a heretic, a false teacher, and a cancer on the body of Christ.
And when the personality being worshipped by the cult turns out to be a fraud, the franchises collapse.
The Next Level Church, a modern Christian congregation with five locations across New Hampshire, has closed its doors due to a leadership crisis and organizational issues following multiple resignations from the organization’s executive team earlier this month.
After former employees and volunteers leveled accusations against the church’s directional team for bullying and financial misconduct, the leaders resigned, leaving only four pastors for the seven locations spread across three states. They decided to close rather than continue.
Such ‘churches’ aren’t Christian congregations. They aren’t places where disciples are made. They are places where consumers of a product gather and when the product doesn’t deliver, the franchise crashes and closes. Like at ‘Next Level’. The next level is open evil.
With thanks to Ken Leonard for telling me about the story.
And, FYI, as I’ve said a number of times and reiterate now- The ‘Gospel Coalition’ is trash.
This isn’t anything recognizably Christian. It is theater, badly done. And a mockery of Christianity.
Steven Furtick: cult leader. Furtick is a grifter and a fraud. His congregants are either deluded into thinking he’s a Christian, or they know he isn’t and they just don’t care.
More than anything I would love to see Luther or Calvin unleashed on Furtick. To hear Luther say
You have surrendered yourself and dared to become an avowed enemy of God, wanting to race rather than trot to hell.
You are worse than all the devils. What you have done, no devil has ever done. Your end is near, you son of perdition and Antichrist! Stop now, you are going to far!
And much more.
When they want to charge you $200 a ticket to attend, it’s a cult.

Today’s example is from someone called Bnonn Tennant (sounds like a fake made up name to me). This chap has zero business offering theological opinions. He writes of himself
I have a background of sorts in philosophy and writing…
Clearly you don’t have a background in or even a basic understanding of Christian theology. Here’s the evidence:
Don’t get your theology from people like this. They simply exude ignorance.
This is the Taliban- ‘Christian’ edition:
There’s a certain lunacy and wretchedness in any theological perspective that leads people to believe the sorts of things pentebabbleists believe.
And although I’ve seen more than my fair share of examples of the depths of theological ignorance that pentebabbleism can plumb, this is the lowest of the low.
Pentebabbleism is a sickness. Watch the video at the link above and you’ll agree.
If you attend a megachurch, you attend a cult.
Have you NO understanding of doctrine? Why in the name of God do you allow this kind of blasphemous nutbaggery to exist in your midst? This is YOUR guy. Do something with him.
Act like Christians instead of satan worshippers and heretics. Remove this vile wretch from his pulpit.
