Naming names?

I’m not a big fan of hip-hop, but I must say I appreciate the message of Shai Linne’s song “Fal$e Teacher$”.  I am so glad he names names;

You could add a lot of names to his list, names like Pope Francis, Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, Mark Driscoll, Phyllis Tickle, Todd Bentley, Robert Schuller, Billy Graham, Rick Warren, David Jeremiah, John Hagee, Ayatolla Kamenei,  Mahmood Ahmadinejad, the Dalai Lama, etc.

Actually, here is another list of false teachers, and this isn’t exhaustive either.  It seems there are more of them every day;

Neil Anderson, Reinhard Bonnke, William Branham, Paul Cain, Tony Campolo, Paul (David) Yonggi Cho, Gerald Coates, Graham Cooke, Paul Cunningham, Gene Edwards, John Hagee, Christian Harfouche, Jack Hayford, Ruth Helflin, John Hinkle, David Hogan, Jack Van Impe, Manasseh Jordan, T.B. Joshua, Bob Larson, Roberts Liardon, Lord Maitreya, Arnold Murray, Carlton Pearson, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Robert Schuller, Gwen Shaw, Don Stewart, Tommy Tenney, Bruce Wilkinson

What all of these teachers are doing is fleecing the flock, and promoting other gods beside the God of the bible.   They may call him “Jesus” but he is assuredly not the Jesus of the bible!

This will get worse as we approach the end of the age.  Even your local pastor could turn out to be a false teacher.  A few years ago we found that our church, Emmanuel Baptist of Barrie, Ontario, was following Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven agenda.  Even when evangelists from Evangelism Explosion spoke at our church, we found they were promoting the Shack, by Wm. Paul Young, a wild New-Age book promoting false views of God and Jesus.

It is truly very easy to find false teachers today, but the truth is hard to find.

    There is one Savior (Yeshua) and one Helper the Holy Spirit, and one truth. Once a person is Born again, receives their free gift from Christ, God the Father will draw that saved person to His Bosom by dispensing the gift of discernment. With this very important gift the devil will never be able to trick you again!!! Never Ever!!! Providing you allow Christ to always be the Pilot and you become the co-pilot. He must always call the shots and you must never disagree with what He directs you to do. He is perfect, and His ways are not like our ways, so pay very close attention to what He tells you to do. And read His LIVING WORD every day. 1st John 1:1 First was the word and the word was with God and THE WORD WAS GOD. He will tell you who the false prophets are. I’ve been saved for 43 years and He has shown me every false prophet I need to be aware of. He knows them all from the beginning to the end of the age. May our Lord continue to keep all searchers of the truth on the narrow path. And always pray for wisdom and discernment.

      Amber, I think it is possible for true believers to be deceived, for a time. So many Christians rely on their traditions rather than the Word.

      Once you start taking all of Scripture seriously, and study it daily it becomes less likely that you could be deceived. Satan is always trying to deceive, and failing that, to confuse! This is why there is a plethora of new bible versions out there! I have met so many Christians who, when confronted by a verse they don’t like, will go and check any number of bibles, to find one they like!

      This is the opposite of what the Word says!

      When I first read Isaiah 4:1 I didn’t like what I saw, but I continued to study and found that it fits in perfectly with the rest of Scripture, but first I had to discard what I had been taught in western Churches!

      I know so many “Christians” who still can’t accept all of God’s Word. I don’t know who is saved, but the saved ones will eventually come to accept the whole bible as written. Until they do there is a danger that they might be deceived!

      Thanks for writing,

      Dan
