The Deconstruction Of A Heresy

I’ve spoken at length in the past about the Word of Faith, Health & Wealth, Name It and Claim It, prosperity heresy that sickens the church today. As unbiblical (and frankly, ungodly) as these claims are, despicable pulpit pimps still act as pied pipers in leading the sheep astray with their masterful butchering of the Word of God.

My brother Independent Conservative took an entire week to further deconstruct and expose the Health & Wealth heresy by making the video series “The Agony Of The Health & Wealth Gospel – Parts 1-5” available. This week, he provided the following video as a guide for every pimp-in-training and wannabe viper to learn to systematically extract copious amounts of money from unsuspecting followers:

Defense of Word of Faith Heresy 101:

Yet another reminder to pray that God’s children stop falling prey to hustlers and liars…

The Musings of “Apostle” Fred K.C. Price

Careful there, Freddy – we wouldn’t want one of the stately swords to slip…

I seem to have ruffled a few feathers in calling out the newly minted “Apostle” Fred Price.

You’d think that most Christians would side with the Word of God instead of defending the false teacher that twists God’s Word for personal gain. But, nothing surprises me anymore…

Anyway, our brother bezel333 takes yet another look at how old Freddy turns the Word of God into a salted pretzel:

Dr. Fred Price and “Positive Confession”:

Sorry to be so blunt, but to hear people like this continue to say ignorant things like “God is not in control” makes my flesh crawl, and makes me pray for them all the more.

Yet more evidence that the “speak those things” “little god” teachings are heretical and against the Word of God..it’s plain to see if you just read it in context for yourself.

God Is Sovereign…Right?

Of course He is!

Some, however, still seem to think that we can control Him with our words, or that He’s sitting around in Heaven with His hands in His pockets waiting on us (the “little gods”) to “release” Him into our circumstances. 🙄

John Piper of Desiring God Ministries penned a short yet excellent article over at Christianity.com (hat tip to our brother Job over at Jesus Christology):

“Is God’s Sovereignty Limited?”

I reject this idea because the Bible doesn’t teach it. In fact, it teaches the opposite.

  • It teaches that not a bird falls to the ground apart from our Father’s will.
  • It teaches that the king’s heart is like a river in the hands of the Lord; he turns it wherever he wills.
  • It teaches that when Joseph was sold into Egypt and finally turns around and his brothers are found to be guilty, God says, “You meant it for evil, but I meant it for good.”
  • I reject it because the book of Proverbs says that the die is cast into the lap and its every decision is from the Lord; a man designs his way, but the Lord directs his steps; and on and on…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – In my opinion, the false teachers advance the “you are little gods” heresy so that you can ascribe god-like qualities to them as well as yourself. This makes it easier for them to endear your allegiance if you see them as god-like.

Not only does God have UNLIMITED sovereignty, but we must also declare His sovereignty to all and admonish all to keep His commandments (1 Timothy 6:12-16 NASB).
