Definition of False Teacher: One who presumes
to teach in the Name of the Lord when God has not sent him.
False Teacher - Gilbert
Nice guys can finish
first – in this world. To finish first in the Kingdom, you
will not be thought of as nice. You will be hated by all men because
you are identified with Jesus Christ, Who is outside their religious
camps. You will not be teaching how to draw men like flies into a
megachurch, as Dr. Bilezikian does. You will not be building cities
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MKJV
(13) For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming
themselves into the apostles of Christ.
(14) Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of
(15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves
as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their
In response to someone who wrote us, I viewed The
Bilezikian Website - Gilbert Bilezikian. Dr. Gilbert Bilezikian is credited with being a
spiritual architect of
the first modern megachurch, Willow Creek Community. As with thousands
of other false teachers, his site is plastered with the sure marks of
dead religious works, the works of men - that which men savor, anti-Christ
in every respect. Though he presumes to be serving God and God’s
interests, Bilezikian is a prince serving under the prince of this world
and both will be cast into the Lake of Fire.
Here are some of the marks that expose him as an enemy of the cross
He titles himself “Doctor.” Nowhere do you find any such
titles among the apostles, prophets, or saints of the Lord. Even Jesus
Christ didn’t title Himself, though He plainly taught that He alone
was our Teacher and Master or Lord. But Bilezikian highly values the
titles, recognition, adulations, commendations, and promotions of men.
This immediately identifies him as anti-Christ and an enemy of the congregation
Dr. Bilezikian has his degrees, his educational credentials, boastfully
presented and specified. Therefore, he proudly smears his site with dung,
that which the apostle Paul abhorred when Jesus Christ made Himself known
to him. Declares Paul of his former worldly pedigree, accomplishments,
“But whatever things were gain to me, those I counted loss for
Christ. But no, rather, I also count all things to be loss for the excellency
of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for Whose sake I have suffered
the loss of all things, and count them to be dung, so that I may win
Christ…” (Philippians 3:7-8 MKJV).
Strong’s Concordance defines the word “dung” as
what is “thrown to the dogs,” that is, refuse (G4657). Gentiles
are known in the Scriptures and referred to by the Lord as dogs. The
things Dr. Bilezikian presents, the dogs voraciously consume. Dogs are
impressed with and savor feces. They will consume their own vomit; should
it be at all strange they would love what Bilezikian tosses to them for
their dining pleasure instead of the Bread from Heaven?
“Get behind me, Satan: you art an offence to Me: for you savor
not the things that be of God, but those that be of men” (Matthew
Why does Gilbert Bilezikian call himself “Doctor”? Why does
he show off his learning in the institutions of this world that are at
enmity with Jesus Christ, which worship Him in vain with their lips?
Are these things not matters of the lust of the eyes and of the flesh
and the pride of life? What else can they possibly be?
1 John 2:15-17 MKJV
(15) Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves
the world, the love of the Father is not in him,
(16) because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the
lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is
of the world.
(17) And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but he who does the
will of God abides forever.
“Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him;
but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should
be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than
the praise of God” (John 12:42-43 KJV).
Dr. Bilezikian is an intellectual, not a spiritual, man. He is not born
again. He is a man of men, not a man of God:
“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not
subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can it be. So then they who
are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:7-8 MKJV).
Beware of this man’s doctrine. His books are treasured by many
because many are dogs and swine. Dogs and swine love the things of the
gutters of Heaven, of the castings of men. Therefore, they despise the
wholesome delicacies and delightful sustenance of God… bread from
Bilezikian’s book, Beyond Sex Roles, seems to defy in substance
our Scriptural writing on the diabolical doctrine, Women
Are Ministers of God in Spiritual Authority over Men. If so, he proclaims doctrines
Dr. Gilbert is no doubt amiable and highly popular with men, but what
does the Lord say of such?
“And He said to them, ‘You are those who justify yourselves
before men, but God knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed
among men is abomination in the sight of God’” (Luke 16:15
“Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you! For so their
fathers did to the false prophets” (Luke 6:26 MKJV).
Gilbert Bilezikian has free run in the religious institutions and circles
of the world. Why? Because he has the mark of the beast and is therefore
permitted to buy and sell (read The
Mark of the Beast and the Seal of God).
Revelation 13:16-18 MKJV
(16) And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and
bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads,
(17) even that not any might buy or sell except those having the mark,
or the name of the beast, or the number of its name.
(18) Here is the wisdom. Let him having reason count the number of the
beast, for it is the number of a man. And its number is six hundred and
Not having the mark, we who are in the Lord aren’t permitted to
buy and sell in the beast’s realm of religion (Counterfeit
Bilezikian is a prized guest and chief participant in those circles because… he
has the mark.

Do you really want to learn of God and His ways? Do you truly desire
to be freed of lies and all manner of deception? Do you wish to be free
indeed? Will you humble yourself and recognize that only the Lord Jesus
Christ can bring you life?
Do you want to live? If so, you will repent of your sins and gods, deny
yourself, take up your cross, and follow the Lord, not men.
You will learn of Him Who is meek and lowly instead of seeking life
from proud and haughty imposters like “Dr.” Bilezikian. While
they are full of knowledge, it isn’t the knowledge of God. While
they promise life, they are dead and destroy souls with their deceitful
Mr. Bilezikian, I bear you no ill will whatsoever personally, but you
must know that God is not at all pleased with your glory, strengths,
and accomplishments. You need to repent of your righteousness; you need
to stop leaning on your own understanding; you need to forsake the praises
of men and give yourself to coveting God’s praise alone.
“How can you believe, you who receive honor from one another and
do not seek the honor that comes from God only?” (John 5:44 MKJV)
