Apostate Evangelists & Teachers

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2nd Corinthians 11:13-14

The Fourth Dimension

Many of you are familiar with the Word/Faith teachings. For those who aren’t, the following is a short synopsis:

Because we humans are made in the image of God and are exact replicas of God, we are gods, as in mini-gods, little messiahs. Since we are gods, our words have power just as God’s do. We can force good things into being by thinking positive thoughts and speaking positive words. The way to “activate” these powers is to have enough faith to do anything, even the seemingly impossible. The main thrust of this “power” is for material blessings, as in worldly gain or anything that bringa attention to self.

Here is an example of word/faith at work:

In David Yonggi Cho’s book The Fourth Dimension, he describes his journey from poor, beggar pastor without even a car or furniture, to rich well-known pastor of the largest cell church in the world. In order to achieve this feat, Cho imagined the things he wanted (a bicycle and furniture for starters) and traveled spiritually to the “4th dimension” to command the Holy Spirit to give him what he wanted. He accomplished this by using “The Secret”, the law of attraction, a New Age/occult technique.

This teaching is a doctrine of demons. Any time we can be successful using a particular doctrine or teaching, and be sucessful without Jesus Christ, the teaching comes under deep suspicion. And what does Jesus Christ have to do the Word/Faith and “The Secret” teaching? Absolutely nothing. It is rooted in the biggest lie “you shall be as gods”, uttered by satan himself in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:5). Anyone who believes that humans are gods and that we can activate God’s blessings by using our thoughts, words, and faith, is believing THE LIE.
