Definition of False Teacher: One who presumes
to teach in the Name of the Lord when God has not sent him.
False Teacher - Chuck
The Manifest Fruits of Falsehood
Many say one can’t
judge whether another believer, particularly one presenting him or
herself as a teacher of God, is of God. Poppycock! Of course they
can be discerned – and must be. Should your spiritual welfare
be entrusted to a liar? God forbid. Jesus said you WILL know them
by their fruits.
Colleen notified us of a false teacher, afterwards telling us of
her mentor, Chuck Missler of Koinonia House. Victor wrote back and told
Colleen that Chuck is a false teacher, to which she said: “I don’t
think so,” and asked for clarification. Here is the clarification:
So you don’t think Chuck Missler (www.khouse.org)
is a false teacher, Colleen? Yet he teaches much false doctrine. His
is in lights and so is his ministry. Is that what you think the apostles
and prophets did? Can you imagine John the Baptist starting an organization
called “John the Baptist Ministries”? “Come and hear
the powerfully anointed Voice in the Wilderness! You’ll have an
unforgettable time! Bring your friends and neighbors! Be baptized in
the River Jordan and God will meet you there! Take a souvenir back with
“Dr.” Chuck Missler is a phony, Colleen, just like all the
rest of the similar operations in Jesus Christ’s Name, and you
are deceived by them. Why? Why are you in the dark about him? That’s
For example, Missler teaches the false doctrine you inquired about -
that of the nature of women’s participation in the congregation
of God. Do women teach men or not? Do they hold positions of authority
over men or not? Or were we mistaken in what you really believed? Perhaps
we wrongly assumed you differed with Bilezikian because of these things,
considering his book, Beyond Sex Roles?
Twice was Missler reported to be plagiarizing. What man of God copies
another writer’s materials and puts his own name on them? Yes,
he ‘fessed up, once and again, but are these innocent mistakes
or deliberate offenses? Not hard to tell. Wouldn’t you know you
were plagiarizing if you did something like that? The list of Missler’s
falsehoods is long, and glaring are the fruits of his doings.
Jesus said: “The thief does not come except to steal and to kill
and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10 MKJV).
What is the precious fruit of the Truth of God? It is faith, obedience,
freedom, understanding, health, and peace - it is the abundant
even as Jesus says, and He is no liar. One may be financially poor,
yet spiritually rich, like the widow with her two mites tossed into
What is the fruit of a false teacher? It is destruction and death. What’s
happening with Chuck’s wife Nancy and his son Mark? Are they not
financially well off? But while they live, they both suffer and are dying
of cancer. What does God say to His people about dreadful diseases?
The fruits of false teachers is ultimately death. They may teach truth,
but they mix truth with error. Chuck Missler’s own family is victimized
by his leadership and doctrine. How about everyone else who follows him?
“And He said, ‘If you will carefully listen to the voice
of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in His sight, and
will give ear to His Commandments, and keep all His Laws, I will put
none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians;
for I am the LORD Who heals you’” (Exodus 15:26 MKJV).
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace
and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalms
Luke 13:1-5 MKJV
(1) And some were present at the same time reporting to Him of the Galileans
whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.
(2) And answering, Jesus said to them, “Do you suppose that these
Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans because they suffered
(3) I tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise
(4) Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them,
do you think that they were sinners above all men who lived in Jerusalem?
(5) I tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise
Do we condemn them for their awful circumstances? NO! We would want
to see them repent and be healed! But they condemn themselves with false
piety, by taking the Lord’s Name in vain. What does the Lord say
“You shall not take the Name of the LORD your God in vain. For
the LORD will not hold him guiltless that takes His Name in vain” (Exodus

Thanks for this – yes
I do believe Bilizikian is false as you do for the reasons you do.
I certainly will look into the Missler issue – and yes I am aware
of Nancy and Mark being ill.
It is very difficult
to know who to follow – obviously I know
that the Bible is the ultimate and only TRUE Word.
Even those who teach
the truth then get known for this and so have a ‘ministry’ or
teaching place to teach from so how does one know who is right and who
Can I ask for some
info on background of The Path of Truth – who
how founded – what makes you/them different.
Thanks – not wanting to be confrontational – just
want to learn and do the right thing as I try to lead others the right
the kingdom of God
We understand your questions and don’t find them confrontational.
Moreover, this is an excellent opportunity to shed light on the issue
of false teachers for you and many others who have the same questions,
whether friendly or antagonistic. We rejoice that all will hear the truth.
“It is very difficult to know who to follow – obviously
I know that the Bible is the ultimate and only TRUE Word.”
It’s not only very difficult to know who to follow – it’s
impossible unless you’re following the Lord. If you’re following
Him, you’re hearing His voice, and if you’re hearing His
voice, you won’t follow the voice of strangers (preachers who aren’t
in Christ). Jesus said of Himself, the Good Shepherd:
“And when He puts forth His own sheep, He goes before them, and
the sheep follow Him. For they know His voice. And they will not follow
a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of
strangers” (John 10:4-5 MKJV).
Knowing “the Bible is the ultimate and only TRUE Word” assures
you of nothing. Unless you turn to the Lord and follow Him, you’re
lost. Instead of edifying your spirit in the true love (faith and obedience)
of God, knowledge of the Bible without these things will only puff you
Almost every teacher and preacher out there in “Christendom” claims
that the Bible is the ultimate and true Word of God, yet look at the
division and confusion coming from their midst. That’s because
they’re without Christ. They’re not part of His mystical
Body, the Church composed of all those who believe and follow Him outside
the camp. The self-promoting preachers who set up a “ministry or
teaching place,” as you call it, like Chuck Missler’s Koinonia
House, appeal to the Bible as the Word of God, but give their own private
interpretations. They attract followers of themselves, men entrenched
in this world and hell. Like begets like. How could they ever lead you
cross and eternal life?
The cross we preach, the same as the apostle Paul, is the antidote to
the endless cycle of learning and never coming to the knowledge of the
Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ. God’s ordained teachers lead one
to the fullness of life in Him, no less:
Ephesians 4:11-13 MKJV
(11) And truly He gave some to be apostles, and some to be prophets,
and some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,
(12) for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry,
for the edifying of the Body of Christ.
(13) And this until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the
knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the
stature of the fullness of Christ.
There is no schism or unholy
mixture in Jesus Christ.
The Lord, and not knowledge of the Bible, is the focus of any man of
God’s ministry. Can you imagine the apostle Paul starting a ministry
like “Dr.” Missler’s, “dedicated
to the development and distribution of materials for encouraging and
study of the Bible”? No, Paul determined to know and preach nothing
other than Christ crucified among those who believed, which is the testimony
of the Scriptures.
Victor gave you Diabolical
Doctrines and The
True Marks of a Cult, two
writings that conclusively demonstrate that what the Word of God presents,
and what Chuck and Nancy Missler teach and present, are two very different
things. Have you carefully and prayerfully red these documents?
If you disagree with anything we’ve said there, please let us
know. No one has disproved anything in either of these writings or in
our false teacher postings. How can one prove the truth is in error?
“Can I ask for some info on background of
The Path of Truth – who
how founded – what makes you/them different.”
I believe this has been answered already, but to state it plainly and
clearly – the Lord Jesus Christ founded His Church, as He told
Peter, based on the revelation of Himself as the Son of the living God.
“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I
will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against
it” (Matthew 16:18 MKJV).

Colleen, you say that you “just want to
learn and do the right thing as I try to lead others the right way
into the kingdom of God.”
The Lord has brought you here in order to learn the right and good way,
if you are willing.
