False Teachers Exposed

“They’re a sorry bunch--pseudo-apostles, lying preachers, crooked workers--posing as Christ’s agents but sham to the core. And no wonder! Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light. So it shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MSG).

This list is not meant to be an exhaustive one. What is important is that one learns to discern truth from error.

“Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God, and him who does not serve Him” (Malachi 3:18 MKJV).

What is a false teacher and how does one qualify for this list?

No person rightfully takes upon himself the role of a teacher or any other ministry of God without God’s power and authority. In a world full of teachers, preachers, elders, deacons, speakers, writers, evangelists, pastors, prophets, and apostles, rare are the true ministers representing the Lord Jesus Christ. Many are the false, and very few the true, even as in Noah’s day.

False teachers are those who presume to teach in their own authority (as did the scribes), often in the Name of the Lord, when He has not sent them. Though they have knowledge of Biblical truths, they are, at best, in delusion, presuming to turn others to the Kingdom of God when, in fact, they are building the corrupt kingdoms of men. At worst, they are deliberate charlatans, seeking to deceive, steal, kill, and destroy, using Biblical truths to do so.

Though false teachers lead astray, the Biblical truths they teach can lead to Christ those whom God has called and is choosing. The truth quickens those being given the gift of faith. However, faith manifest in the one who receives the truth does not certify as God’s representative the one who speaks some truth. The child of faith who walks in obedience to Christ will soon enough part ways with those who mix truth with error.

This is God’s commandment:

“Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord, and do not touch the unclean thing. And I will receive you and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:17-18 MKJV).

False teachers mix the holy things of God with their carnal thoughts, creating a false form of godliness. They can’t do otherwise, because they haven’t taken up the cross and submitted themselves to Christ’s righteousness. They are still in their sin nature, living unto themselves, teaching doctrines and commandments of men.

And because false teachers haven’t submitted themselves to Christ’s righteousness, they can’t lead others there. A false teacher is one who may speak truth, yet points his hearers in another direction.

An example of this would be that of a “Tijuana taxi,” or any predator of tourists who says, “Yes, I know exactly where such-and-such a place is, and I’ll take you there. On the way, I’ll tell you all you want to know about it. Please, get in.”

Guess what? He gets you there after a half-hour drive, but didn’t tell you it was only a block away from where you began with him. Meanwhile he charges you for the time or mileage.

And though he filled you in on what the place is all about, what he doesn’t, can’t, and won’t tell you is that you need a membership to enter. He drops you off at the gate, and you find out your trip was for naught.

Isn’t that just like the churches and spiritual leaders one encounters in a multiplicity of places and forms? They have truth, and they may even get you into the wedding feast, but never with a wedding garment.

Therefore, while the truth spoken is to be believed (no matter who speaks it or what affiliation the speaker may have), false teachers are not to be followed. Teachers sent of God are to be followed, as with the example given by the apostle Paul, who said by the Spirit, “Become followers of me, even as I am of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). A false teacher leads into the emptiness of self-righteousness and death, but a true teacher leads to the fullness of Christ and life.

Geisler, Dave:

Making Friends with the World: Another Gospel that Preserves the Flesh           [PDF Version]

Joshua Tongol is a hip young preacher with sincerity and enthusiasm for “superabounding grace,” which is, in reality, a false gospel that leaves out the crucial elements of faith and obedience through the cross. That’s where one finds the grace of God in Christ, not in our own hearts or ability to love, as Joshua teaches. He is putting his own name in lights, not glorifying the Light of all men.

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me” (John 12:32 KJV).

Those who lift up themselves draw all men to themselves. So it goes with a baker’s dozen of Tongol’s personal endorsers, who are also false teachers, because they glorify man and the flesh that Christ came to crucify.

Gershon (Gerstmann), Otto:

A Matter of Motive         [PDF Version]

When God sends His servants to speak the truth, religious unbelievers question and find fault with what His servants do, never considering or knowing why they do it. It is God speaking through those compelled by Him to shine the Light, and the religious, who love darkness because their deeds are evil, are compelled to condemn the Light. It always comes down to a matter of motive.

His Words Were Smoother Than Butter         [PDF Version]

God's servants may be deceived, but He is not mocked. See how this false teacher fooled us, and while doing so, laid a trap for himself.

Gilchrist, Rodney:

Partying “Down Under,” MegaChurch Style          [PDF Version]

This trio of false teachers from Australia present Christianity as one happy way to get whatever you want in life. You deserve it and you can do it - just follow their examples of positive confession guided by avaricious worldliness. And God forbid, don’t take seriously what the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles teach and exemplify by their lives. Behold the anti-Christ in all his glory before men, and shame before God.

Gimenez, Anne:

What man is justified putting his name in lights in the Name of the Lord, and what woman is justified doing so when she is not called to preach in the first place? God does not give His glory to another, and mixtures are destined for destruction.

Glover, Charlene:

The Trumpet of a Strumpet          [PDF Version]

Take a look at some modern prophets of Baal at work and consider for your lives. Nothing less is at stake for all those who take the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ upon themselves. He won’t hold you guiltless should you so abuse His Person with such perversities as you will be shown here.

Graham, Billy:

Billy Graham, in the most attractive and “pious” of ways, is a butcher of millions of souls. He is a star pupil of Nimrod, the mighty hunter of souls before God. He has killed millions in the Name of Christ. The Lord exposes him to deliver the sincere seeker from the snare of the fowler.

Billy Graham - The Fast Fading Façade          [PDF Version]

In this short interview, we see how Billy Graham, approaching retirement from an active religious career, contradicts the Bible and his Southern Baptist doctrines. Like an unmoored ship, his carnal mind casts about in the sea of his imagination, filling in the blanks of what he never had in the first place – a true relationship and understanding in Christ.

Our conversations with those who honor and defend Billy Graham:

An Advocate for Billy Graham: Passion Without Truth          [PDF Version]

Raymond says to us, “Shame, shame, shame,” after reading “How the Lord Exposed Billy Graham.” He praises Graham as full of love, but can he disprove what the Lord has shown us? There is a difference between man’s virtue and God’s virtue.

The False and Misleading Gospel of “Accepting”Jesus Christ           
[PDF Version]

This most pernicious lie of Billy Graham’s gospel, causing untold misery by its deception, is thoroughly debunked by God’s own words.

The Whole Picture: We Answer an Apologist for Counterfeit Christianity           [PDF Version]

William argues in defence of “Doctor” Graham, appealing to the accreditation of men and denying the present judgment of God. We show the fallacy of both notions, and how his arguments prove that his own conversion, like all of Graham’s, is false.

No Place to Hide          [PDF Version]

When William hears we had hoped he would believe, confess his wrongness, and turn from his sins, he acts incredulous and states that we are the ones who sinned by publically “defaming” Billy Graham. If we want to debate, he says, we should debate the man who says Adolph Hitler will be saved. You need to hear Victor’s answer.

Receiving the Spirit of God - Not a Salvation Issue?          [PDF Version]

A Liberty University professor of Christ protests our listing of Billy Graham’s denial of the gifts of the Spirit as the mark of a false teacher. He says this is not a salvation issue. We show him that one cannot be saved except one is baptized with the Spirit, which is Christ’s power for a new life.

Dividing the Wheat from the Chaff          [PDF Version]

“Dr.” Rima says we make him sick with our “divisive” writing about Billy Graham. But didn’t Jesus say He came to divide? Yes, included would be the division of His sheep from doctors of theology and their ilk.

The Ways of False Religious Love: Spearing a Slithering Snake          
[PDF Version]

A defender of Billy Graham, who claims to be filled with the Spirit of God and flowing in His gifts, appeals to us to cease judging in the name of love. We identify the treacherous nature of his love and the false spirit behind it. Thus the stronghold of false Christianity falls before the Son of God.

Gray, Daryl & Natalia:

Putting Away Jezebel          [PDF Version]
(and her partners in crime)

Maria Merola styles herself a “watchman” appointed by God to deliver Jewish and Gentile believers from false Christian doctrines and nourish them in the truth. She calls her ministry “Double Portion Inheritance,” an empty claim and blasphemous title - in itself exposing a deluded and self-important woman. Those who agree and promote her whorish ways, such as the Grays, suffer the destruction of idolatry and spiritual fornication.

Groeschel, Craig:

The Prettified Gates of Hell          [PDF Version]

Satan, by his gospel, offers an ample entranceway through which you, and all you have, can enter. That’s what Craig Groeschel experienced and offers his hearers. How wonderful you will feel for a time, as you’re deceived into thinking you’ve entered Heaven! As it is written, however:

“There is a way which seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death” (Proverbs 14:12 HNV).

Don’t be simple: Learn the difference between truth and error. Repent; take up the cross, and enter life.

Grubb, Norman:

“An Okay Christ”          [PDF Version]

Those who preach Christ yet relate to Him casually are presumptuous and have never met Him. They speak of another Jesus, one made in the image of sinful man, and not the sinless Savior. True preachers who have seen the Lord are not light and breezy, confident in the flesh. “Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me. For my beauty was turned within me to corruption, and I kept no strength” (Daniel 10:8 MKJV).

Gruver, Henry:

Utter Confidence in the Flesh          [PDF Version]

False teachers are show-offs seeking attention because they love men’s praise and think very highly of themselves. They haven’t met the Highest One Who took on the form of a servant, the Lord Jesus Christ. As He said, “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) Henry Gruver shows how, if you’re not seeking the honor that comes from God alone, you can fall for anything.

Hagee, John:

Friend or Enemy of Israel and the Jews?          [PDF Version]

John Hagee preaches that Rome, and not the Jews, plotted against and crucified the Lord Jesus. While it is good and needful to oppose anti-Semitism, particularly the virulent “Christian” religious type that led to the Holocaust, there is no greater distortion of the record or graver injustice to the Jews than to tell them they are innocent of Christ’s blood. Not only is no man innocent of His blood, but the Jews as a nation are directly guilty in this regard because of what they did to their Messiah and God Who came to them in the flesh. The only avenue to reconciliation and peace is through the truth.

Hahn, Scott:

Scott Hahn is a well-publicized Presbyterian minister who converted to Catholicism... “out of the frying pan and into the fire.” We address the spiritual bankruptcy of “Protestantism” and the erroneous thinking which led to his conversion to Catholicism. Surely, when God sends strong delusion that one should believe a lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11), who can withstand Him? Nevertheless, we preach the truth, reprove the works of darkness, and put our hope in the Truth of God that will bear fruit.

Ham, Kenneth:

Smooth and Seductive Speculation          [PDF Version]

The serpent is a master at twisting the Scriptures in order to leave man’s righteousness and ascendancy intact while leaving Christ on the cross, though praised to the skies. And Kenneth Ham makes up things and says they are Scripture. This Ham is definitely not kosher.

Hamp, Douglas:

Giants Who Bring Humanity Down          [PDF Version]

Satan will have you worship him by fearing him and his power, when all power is God’s and He is the One you should fear. The fear of Satan paralyzes you with scary stories of evil without, but the fear of God convicts and delivers you from the evil within.

Hanegraaff, Hank (Christian Research Institute - CRI):

Men come together and form organizations, like the Christian Research Institute, with formulated creeds that deny the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ, rather than glorify Him as they presume. That is why God calls His people to come right out of there, without looking back.

Hank Hanegraaff’s institute teaches and defends Bible worship. Can people promote the Bible while fighting against and denying Its Author, Jesus Christ? You had better believe it – the very same people crucified Him. Come away from idolatry of the Bible, and turn to the One about Whom the Bible speaks, Who will teach you the Truth.

CRI, under Hank Hanegraaff's direction, put together a small pamphlet on how to identify a cult. Upon examining their criteria, we noticed that all of the distinguishing marks of a cult, according to CRI, could be reasonably applied to the apostles of Christ and to the Lord Himself. In this writing we show how false religious teachers like Mr. Hanegraaff condemn God, the Lord Jesus Christ, by their descriptions of what is ungodly. At the same time, they try to justify themselves in ways that are truly ungodly and contrary to the examples and teachings of the Scriptures, which we identify in this paper as the many true marks of a cult.

Harfouche, Christian and Robin:

Showtime for Hyping the Harlot

The audacity of this boastful religious showman and his "apostle doctor" wife is breathtaking, though no surprise. The competition is stiff for attracting an audience these days, so false teachers are compelled to swing for the fences. And the blind love to be entertained, tickled and impressed with satanic glory. What a wicked day we live in! Thank God the Lord has come to clean house.

Hedgecock, Joseph:

Throw Out the Bathwater, Not the Baby          [PDF Version]

We often note the true things false teachers say, because people need to know that the truth is no respecter of persons. Rejecting a person as a teacher from God doesn’t give one license to reject everything that person says. As Jesus said of His opponents, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat [teaching Moses’ words]. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, observe and do. But do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do” (Matthew 23:2-3 MKJV).

Herzog, David:

The Self-Glorification Zone          [PDF Version]

True prophets acknowledge that God determines all things – “A man can receive nothing unless it is given to him from Heaven” (John 3:27 MKJV). False prophets, such as David Herzog, tickle your ears by telling you that you’re in charge – the power lies with you to be and have what you want. And in listening to them, you give them what they want.

Hetland, Leif:

Winning Souls with False Love          [PDF Version]

False teachers catch flies with the honey of lies, but God satisfies hungry souls with the truth through His cross.

Hill, George & Hazel:

Victory Church (VCI)          [PDF Version]

Every false thing is revealed by the Truth. There are times when one sees things in the Light of Day, and there are times when the Light of Day speaks for Himself. It was the latter concerning George and Hazel Hill and their Victory Church.

Having Fun at Victory Church          [PDF Version]

The truth never speaks loudly enough for the willful deaf, who take the Name of the Lord in vain. But the fires of judgment come, swift and terrible.

Hill, Steve:

Falsehood Written All Over Them          [PDF Version]

God gives those who don’t receive a love of the truth over to believing a lie. This is how false teachers believe He is with them and that they’re doing His work. Thereby are many falsehoods disseminated in His Name, and those of like spirit, not discerning the error, are brought to their judgment. “The light of the body is the eye. Therefore if your eye is sound, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23 MKJV)

Hinn, Benny:

A Deliberate Liar and Scoundrel          [PDF Version]

Some false teachers are sincerely deluded. But Benny Hinn is the quintessential religious con man who knowingly enriches himself by taking advantage of ignorant and desperate people. He is an utter phony, a bloodsucking parasite whose time of exposure is now.

The Bottom of the Barrel: A Motley Crew of Demonic Mockers
[PDF Version]

“But evil men and seducers will go forward to worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13 MKJV). All manias end with a blow-off phase where all sense is abandoned, because people are given over to their lusts entirely. So we know that we are nearing the end of evil men and seducers when they laugh like devils and call that the worship of God.

Hockey, Deon:

Falsehood Written All Over Them          [PDF Version]

God gives those who don’t receive a love of the truth over to believing a lie. This is how false teachers believe He is with them and that they’re doing His work. Thereby are many falsehoods disseminated in His Name, and those of like spirit, not discerning the error, are brought to their judgment. “The light of the body is the eye. Therefore if your eye is sound, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23 MKJV)

Horowitz, Len:

The King of Vain Deceit          [PDF Version]

“Be careful that you don't let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Messiah. For in Him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily” (Colossians 2:8-9 HNV).

Len Horowitz is just such a thief, mixing God and Christ into his health business enterprises, calling himself the “King David of Natural Healing.” In this writing we expose Zen Len for the unscrupulous and fraudulent ways by which he has made merchandise of many.

Houdmann, S. Michael:

Judgment of GotQuestions.org          [PDF Version]

GotQuestions presents itself as the one-stop shop for answers to all your questions about God and the Bible, from a Christian perspective. We show that this is not true - their perspective is their own, one born of flesh, not the Spirit of God. His thoughts and ways are not men’s, and men’s are not His, no matter if they claim to represent Him.

Houston, Brian:

Partying “Down Under,” MegaChurch Style          [PDF Version]

This trio of false teachers from Australia present Christianity as one happy way to get whatever you want in life. You deserve it and you can do it - just follow their examples of positive confession guided by avaricious worldliness. And God forbid, don’t take seriously what the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles teach and exemplify by their lives. Behold the anti-Christ in all his glory before men, and shame before God.

Huch, Larry:

Using Freedom to Cover up Evil          [PDF Version]

Ministers of Christ set people free from sin, enabling them, by His grace, to live right and do well. Ministers of men like Larry Huch, on the other hand, use the freedom they presume to have in Christ to cover over wrongdoing, teaching others to do likewise. “They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved” (2 Peter 2:19 ESV).

Hufford, Darin:

Making Friends with the World: Another Gospel that Preserves the Flesh           [PDF Version]

Joshua Tongol is a hip young preacher with sincerity and enthusiasm for “superabounding grace,” which is, in reality, a false gospel that leaves out the crucial elements of faith and obedience through the cross. That’s where one finds the grace of God in Christ, not in our own hearts or ability to love, as Joshua teaches. He is putting his own name in lights, not glorifying the Light of all men.

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me” (John 12:32 KJV).

Those who lift up themselves draw all men to themselves. So it goes with a baker’s dozen of Tongol’s personal endorsers, who are also false teachers, because they glorify man and the flesh that Christ came to crucify.

Hyles, Jack:

Repentance Misunderstood          [PDF Version]

The alluring false gospel of men, as presented by Jack Hyles, guarantees you a place in Heaven if only you turn from not believing Jesus is your Savior. In contrast, the True Gospel of Jesus Christ calls for repentance from all sin and obedience by faith, in order to be established in the Kingdom of Heaven. Men want their pay up front, but though salvation is free, God calls for men to pay up front – “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matthew 16:25 ESV).

Jackson, John Paul:

Another of Many Impressive Shysters          [PDF Version]

After you get past the razzle-dazzle of a charlatan, plentiful are the indications of falsehood. But one must get right with God to see, because these things are only profitably known by walking in the light with Him.

Jennings, Clayton:

A “Humble” Sinner Plays Jesus          [PDF Version]

Here’s the son of a preacher who plays Jesus Christ on stage, while offstage he plays a preacher, though claiming he’s still “a messed up guy” (from his website – ClaytonJennings.com). Don’t let the false humility fool you. The “aw shucks” posturing only covers over the arrogance of the man of sin, who pretends, by his knowledge, to be up to the job of playing God. This is the destroyer come in the flesh, a consummate liar. An actor, indeed!

Johnson, Bill:

Johnson, Nita:

Haughty Humility          [PDF Version]

Ms. Johnson presumes to teach believers about humility, not realizing that her example and precepts foster the opposite qualities - pride and presumption. What a good opportunity for all to see her virtue contrasted with God’s!

“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 MKJV).

Jones, Stephen E.:

God Keeps His Promises: The Jews in their Land of Israel          
[PDF Version]

Jack, an ungodly man presenting himself as a knowledgeable Christian, is confronted on his presumption and hypocrisy. Having no repentance or justification for his wicked ways, he scours our site and comes back trying to condemn us for what he calls our “very foul Zionist views.” Lacking his own substance, he presents a book written by another fraud posing as a Christian, “Dr.” Stephen E. Jones, to support and enlarge on his charge. (A common sign of a phony is that he or she must appeal to another phony for validation.) We answer his stupidities and more, showing how the enemies of God hate His faithfulness and righteous works, and will tell any lies to dismiss them.

Joshua, T.B.:

T.B. Joshua Goes for the Big Score          [PDF Version]

Whether he got lucky or it was planned, Joshua's prophecy of the death of an African leader is a fraud, a monument to his ego and ambition for power. Beware, simple ones, lest you join him in his fate, the fate of all liars and false prophets.

Joyner, Rick:

Kelly, Russell Earl:

A Taboo Teacher of Tripe          [PDF Version]

To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a Ph.D. Russell Kelly takes on the subject of tithing and has no shame in perverting what the Bible says, because, after all, he is a doctor of theology. It’s his job to explain away what God intended for us to know, believe, and live by.

King, Ed:

Another Doctor Who Would Be King          [PDF Version]

A man’s friend joins Redemption Church led by “Dr.” King and his wife, and the man is still lamenting this event eight years later. We help him to see, not only the error of the religious doctor and his work, but his own error that keeps him bound in darkness.

King, Martin Luther Jr.:

“Christian” Atheist: Using Christ as a Lever to Move the World
[PDF Version]

Martin Luther King was a great man in terms of dedication to his cause and the results he achieved. The pertinent question we answer here is whether it was the cause of Christ to which the “Reverend” gave his life, and the answer is “no.” It was his own quest to reform this temporal world, not the ushering in of the Kingdom of God, which comes from within.

King, Patricia:

Selling Spiritual Sensationalism          [PDF Version]

The Lord comes promising the steepest of costs, your life and all you have, to follow Him. The harlot comes promising you the moon and stars in spiritual benefits and glory, if you will follow her. See how she operates, and turn for your life to the One Who laid down His life for you. His way is the right way.

“For whoever exalts himself shall be abased, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted” (Luke 14:11 MKJV).

Kjos, Berit:

Berit Kjos - Moralizing Minister of Death          [PDF Version]

Here is a classic example of the blindness of those who serve the letter of the Word rather than the Word of the letter. Such teach an illicit worship of the Scriptures, breeding self-righteousness and violence against the Truth, Jesus Christ. Yet these moralizers sincerely believe they are conforming to Him as they labor in delusion, God having consigned them to it for their judgment (correction).

Kropveld, Mike:

Lake, Kyle (Emergent Church):

This pastor of a Baptist Church prayed, “Surprise me, God!” in front of 800 church attendees, and was then electrocuted in the bapistry. Before his death, Kyle wrote a book in which he denied the sovereignty of God, but now he is learning, as we all must and shall, that, just as Jesus said, God is over every detail - to the death of a sparrow or the numbers of hair on your head.

Lead, Jane:

The Devil’s Delectable Delusion          [PDF Version]

To some, Satan comes with titillating tidbits, enticing them with esoteric and mysterious doctrines that make the recipients feel specially enlightened and set apart from the common believer. Beware. “Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them” (Hebrews 13:9 ESV).

Leckey, Kenneth:

Greatly borrowing from A. P. Adams, Kenneth Leckey has written a paper about Jesus Christ entitled, “Behold the Man,” which is great error, diabolical trash, antiChrist - nothing short of Baal (hero) worship. Let these words shock you if they will, but we know whereof we speak. The paper we now submit to you will prove by the Scriptures what we say. We are thankful for the opportunity to expose this prevalent error, supposed to be true worship of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lee, Witness:

Suing for Man’s Approval          [PDF Version]

The saints rejoice when persecuted by the religious on account of their faith in Christ. But not Witness Lee and his “Local Church.” They take you to court just if critiqued. They will not be denied their place at man’s table, so they deny the Lord and are refused a place at His.

Leman, Derek:

Phony Professor of Christ Adopts Jewish Guise          [PDF Version]

Today, many think to find Christ by immersion in some form of cultural religious Judaism, turning to empty Jewish customs and teachings. We can assure you, by firsthand knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and His testimony in the Scriptures, that He is not there. Wolves like Derek Leman take on the appearance of a religious Jew to make one think Jesus Christ is, snaring the simple and lost who know no better and aren’t hearing good counsel.

“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that outwardly in flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart; in spirit and not in letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God” (Romans 2:28-29 MKJV).

Luther’s Legacy – Unleashing the Man of Sin          [PDF Version]

Read Martin Luther and you can hear the essential spirit and approach of what is commonly called Christianity today, which is presumed and accepted by many to be true. But it is not. Hear what Luther was missing, and what you are missing if you follow him, whether under his name or another.

MacArthur, John:

Presuming Carnal Knowledge Is Godly          [PDF Version]

Was the apostle Paul’s thorn in the flesh a betrayal by the Corinthians, as John MacArthur surmises? No, it wasn’t; so why is John projecting his personal opinions on the Bible and teaching them as the Word of God? He does so because he doesn’t have the Spirit of God, yet presumes to lead others by his carnal knowledge and interpretations. John doesn’t know the Lord Jesus Christ or understand His ways. He therefore can ’t lead others into God’s Kingdom.

Maison, Perry:

Ministers of Mammon: Gathered and Bundled          [PDF Version]

Ministers of Christ never come asking for money, even implicitly or by indirect means. The children of this world who appear as ministers of Christ invariably do, because they depend on man and not on God. They cloak their covetousness behind the needs of others, whom they advertise and promote as the recipients of their "godly" attention and your money. In this narrative, see how one spider catches three others in its money web, for evil, and how the Lord catches all of them for the fire, for good.

Malkmus, George:

“Reverend” George Malkmus preaches vegetarianism, which in and of itself is not an issue. However, how he abuses the Scriptures and their Author in doing so, in order to support false assertions built on a stolen authority, is quite another matter. We make clear his carnal reasonings and consequent offence against God and man so that others might steer clear of same.

Manning, James David:

An Entertaining Preacher Missing the Mark          [PDF Version]

“The one who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory, but the one who seeks the glory of Him Who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood ” (John 7:18 ESV).

Even if the one who speaks on his own authority says refreshing and delightful true things, that one also has falsehood because he seeks his own glory. That’s the case with James Manning, an entertaining preacher who seeks an earthly kingdom, not having known the Heavenly one that comes through the cross and seeking the glory of God.

Martin, Walter:

The Cult “Expert” Is a Cultist          [PDF Version]

Here’s an example of one who prided himself on his supposed knowledge and expertise in the things of God, using it to charge others with wrongdoing he was guilty of himself. This is hypocrisy of the worst sort, because it drags God’s Name through the mud.

Mathew, Samuel:

Making Friends with the World: Another Gospel that Preserves the Flesh           [PDF Version]

Joshua Tongol is a hip young preacher with sincerity and enthusiasm for “superabounding grace,” which is, in reality, a false gospel that leaves out the crucial elements of faith and obedience through the cross. That’s where one finds the grace of God in Christ, not in our own hearts or ability to love, as Joshua teaches. He is putting his own name in lights, not glorifying the Light of all men.

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me” (John 12:32 KJV).

Those who lift up themselves draw all men to themselves. So it goes with a baker’s dozen of Tongol’s personal endorsers, who are also false teachers, because they glorify man and the flesh that Christ came to crucify.

Maxwell, Jordan:

Missing the Pearl in His Mess          [PDF Version]

“A messy man doing messy things – It’s Messy Maxwell.” Those are Jordan Maxwell’s words, not ours. We’ll say this about his attempt at a clever marketing slogan: Mr. Maxwell says some true things about the heathen mythologies and notions permeating mainstream religions, but in the “mess” he creates, he entirely overlooks the Pearl of Great Price, Who is the Reason for all that exists.

McCartney, Bill:

Promise Keepers          [PDF Version]

What is wrong with joining together with others who profess Christ and mutually promise to commit themselves to doing good? In the sight of God, everything. Let us show you why and how.

McDonald, Garry:

Partying “Down Under,” MegaChurch Style          [PDF Version]

This trio of false teachers from Australia present Christianity as one happy way to get whatever you want in life. You deserve it and you can do it - just follow their examples of positive confession guided by avaricious worldliness. And God forbid, don’t take seriously what the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles teach and exemplify by their lives. Behold the anti-Christ in all his glory before men, and shame before God.

McGhee, Geri:

Deluded “Deliverer” of Darkness          [PDF Version]

How self-confident and presumptuous are those men and women who think they’re serving God in ministries they’ve made up to glorify themselves! Woe to them, and woe to those who follow them!

McIntyre, Simon & Valerie:

C3 Church - Following the Prince of This World          [PDF Version]

The Lord, promising believers tribulation and the death of the cross, certainly seems cruel and undesirable next to Satan, who promises the glory of this world if you’ll follow him. C3 has opted for the latter in a big way, and we’re here to warn you about taking that wide road to destruction.

McLaren, Brian:

Emerging into What?          [PDF Version]

The “emerging church” movement follows the lead of the collapsing culture of the late 20th century, discarding invariable truths and precepts of God for the self-serving subjectivity of man. Brian McLaren is one of the movement’s preeminent leaders, and we show how this “new” church movement is just another brand of false Christianity, supplanting faith with anti-Christ philosophy honoring false gods such as Allah and denying the Lord Jesus Christ.

McPherson, Aimee Semple:

Not a Woman of God          [PDF Version]

Did the Lord put women in spiritual authority over men, or was that someone else’s idea? What is the example and teaching of the servants of God? Aimee Semple McPherson came against God’s order and teaching, pursued her own agenda, and, as with so many others, leads many astray in her deception even to this day.

Merola, Maria:

Putting Away Jezebel          [PDF Version]
(and her partners in crime)

Maria Merola styles herself a “watchman” appointed by God to deliver Jewish and Gentile believers from false Christian doctrines and nourish them in the truth. She calls her ministry “Double Portion Inheritance,” an empty claim and blasphemous title - in itself exposing a deluded and self-important woman. Those who agree and promote her whorish ways, such as the Grays, suffer the destruction of idolatry and spiritual fornication.

May 18, 2011 Update: We received a “Cease and Desist” notice from Daniel Merrick on behalf of Maria Merola. They demand retraction of, and an apology for, our posting: Putting Away Jezebel (and her partners in crime). As you will see, our work continues. Click HERE to read the update.

Meyer, Joyce:

Segment in What Kind of Faith Do You Have?          [PDF Version]

A woman writes us and makes this statement in her letter: “Joyce Meyer is one of my favourite teachers on how to live in joy, peace and purpose.

Victor's answer shows why Joyce Meyer is a false teacher who presents the wrong goals for all those who would live godly in Christ Jesus.

Mirasi, Kevin:

Captive of Fear Promotes Escapist Fantasy          [PDF Version]

Here we have a self-appointed and acclaimed prophet who, not knowing the Lord Jesus Christ, models himself after David Owuor by promoting prophecies that incite fear and titillate with false hope in a phony rapture and “Jesus.” Satan is amused as the naïve and deluded follow him into destruction.

Missler, Chuck:

The Manifest Fruits of Falsehood          [PDF Version]

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.

Mohler, Dan:

Dr. Frankenstein and His Creation (Todd White)          [PDF Version]

How great the deception and seductive powers of Satan! Only through a sold-out love of truth and the death sentence of the cross are God's elect kept.

"For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will give miraculous signs and wonders in order to seduce, if possible, even the elect. But take heed; behold, I have told you all things beforehand" (Mark 13:22-23 MKJV).

Moreland, J.P.:

Making Friends with the World: Another Gospel that Preserves the Flesh           [PDF Version]

Joshua Tongol is a hip young preacher with sincerity and enthusiasm for “superabounding grace,” which is, in reality, a false gospel that leaves out the crucial elements of faith and obedience through the cross. That’s where one finds the grace of God in Christ, not in our own hearts or ability to love, as Joshua teaches. He is putting his own name in lights, not glorifying the Light of all men.

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me” (John 12:32 KJV).

Those who lift up themselves draw all men to themselves. So it goes with a baker’s dozen of Tongol’s personal endorsers, who are also false teachers, because they glorify man and the flesh that Christ came to crucify.

Müller, George:

Segment in A Cloud Without Water          [PDF Version]

It does not cease to amaze us how the prophets and teachers of darkness are all equally without substance, no matter how much they know, how experienced, how religious, or how old they may be. They are all the same - empty clouds promising rain and providing not a drop – and the older they get, the drier. They are altogether presumptuous, self-willed, proud, incorrigible, implacable, arrogant, and worse than worthless in all their ways.

Munroe, Myles:

The Most Subtle of Beasts          [PDF Version]

Satan is the master persuader, not because he lies outright, but because his lies are hidden in the truth. He provides those whose hearts aren’t wedded to the truth opportunity to justify doing their own thing while appearing to do the right thing. In this correspondence, Myles Munroe gives his satanic pitch for a form of godliness that denies God’s Power and Authority.

Murray, Andrew:

Christlike AntiChrist          [PDF Version]

There is not a more horrible sight to Heaven than men trying to appear heavenly. It is the arrogance of men who say in their hearts, “I will be as God,” whereas Jesus Christ is God saying, “I will become a man.” Christ comes to consume those who consume Him, thereby making them one with God according to His will and doing. Thus is Jesus’ saying fulfilled:

“Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30 MKJV).

Murray, Arnold:

A Doctorate without THE Doctor         [PDF Version]

How can one minister spiritual health without the Physician, the One Who heals us? Yet that’s what this self-proclaimed doctor and pastor, Arnold Murray, was doing by ministering in his own strength and righteousness, teaching his thoughts as the Word of God. “Let God be true but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4 EMTV). For “verily, every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah” (Psalms 39:5 KJV).

Nee, Watchman:

Playing God Instead of Trusting Him          [PDF Version]

Here are two spiritual giants of human willpower, attempting to be Christian by great works and sacrifices that come to naught.

Nehale, Victoria:

About Victoria Nehale’s account:

I point out here just one item from a multitude of glaring falsehoods in her story. She writes:

There were demons mingling with the people: the demons in appearance looked like alligators and they were walking on four legs. They were comfortable in that environment and were constantly teasing and tormenting the humans. The noise that the demons were making was more like a celebration, as they seemed happy and carefree; they were also dancing and jumping all the time. The humans, on the other hand, looked miserable and depressed; they were in a state of helplessness and hopelessness. The noise from humans was caused by pain; they were weeping, screaming and gnashing their teeth, and were in a desperate situation of unimaginable pain and agony.

What’s the moral of the story? Why not be a demon and be happy doing evil?

Victor

For more applicable truths answering the errors in Victoria’s story, read our postings on Mary Baxter and Angelica Zambrano.

Palau, Luis:

Segment in “An Okay Christ”          [PDF Version]

Those who preach Christ yet relate to Him casually are presumptuous and have never met Him. They speak of another Jesus, one made in the image of sinful man, and not the sinless Savior. True preachers who have seen the Lord are not light and breezy, confident in the flesh. “Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me. For my beauty was turned within me to corruption, and I kept no strength” (Daniel 10:8 MKJV).

A “bishop” loses his congregation when he stops preaching the damnable doctrine of eternal damnation (interesting, no?), but continues full-steam ahead in shameless self-promotion. He has not forsaken himself, and still chooses the approval of men rather than God.

Peters, Ken:

A Fantastic Dream          [PDF Version]

Ken Peters is a false teacher who burst onto the scene with a story of an amazing dream and supernatural experience preceding his coming to believe and presumably minister the Gospel of Christ. His experience became his credential, swaying the ignorant impressionable and those unlearned in the ways of the Lord, which ways are enumerated here for the sake of all truth seekers.

To tell people that they will go to hell - forever- and you will not, because you believed, and they did not, is so very self-righteous and offensive to God. No man teaching this doctrine can possibly have a firsthand, personal knowledge of Him.

Poonen, Zac:

Mystery Babylon’s Gold Standard          [PDF Version]

Being an upright and faithful messenger in the church systems of men doesn’t qualify one as a servant of God. The servants of God walk in His righteousness, not their own, and have nothing to do with the works of men, the paths of the destroyer. “Verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah” (Psalms 39:5 KJV).

Pope John Paul II (The Catholic Church):

Hear what happened after the death of one of the most widely loved and revered persons in all the earth. The false have been loved and the true have been hated, but each has his reward waiting for him.

Prankard, Bill and Gwen:

Satan’s Fallen Soldiers: Devious Devices of the Destroyer Discussed
[PDF Version]

Not only do Satan’s servants bring destruction to others, they suffer it themselves as the victims of their own deception. While Christ gives a deposit of pure gold, Satan gives a “UOI” (not an IOU), keeping his subjects under the yoke and bondage of serving themselves in his kingdom of darkness. Light solves that problem, when it is shone by God in Christ, and walked in by men. That is the Kingdom of God on earth.

Prince, Derek:

Satan's Redemption          [PDF Version]

Answering Derek Prince’s “Will Satan Ever Be Reconciled to God?”

Derek Prince says that Satan will burn in hell forever, along with anyone who speaks of Satan's ultimate redemption. See if this writing doesn't fully answer all of Mr. Prince's arguments against the reconciliation that God has destined for all His creation, including the Devil. For reconciliation is the great purpose and goal of His judgment through Jesus Christ.

Prince, Joseph:

Joseph Prince of This World          [PDF Version]

Hear and see how this strutting rooster strips you of your money and the Gospel of its power.

“Don’t Let Money Make You Mad”          [PDF Version]

A reader criticizes our posting of Joseph Prince, presuming we’re envious of his financial success as a false gospel entertainer. By the grace of God, being as Joseph Prince is the last thing any of His saints would ever want, even if they should “gain the whole world.” But the writer, being a child of darkness, reflects her own preoccupation with mammon and finds reason to condemn us for rejecting her god.

The Suffering of the Saints          [PDF Version]

A false gospel has overtaken the earth like cancer, teaching people that God wouldn’t have them suffer in any way, but would see to it that they are rich in the physical things and comforts of this world. These are “men whose minds have been corrupted and deprived of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness.” The apostle says, “Withdraw from such” (1 Timothy 6:5 MKJV). Come and hear the true and profitable way of Christ.

Pringle, Phil & Chris:

C3 Church - Following the Prince of This World          [PDF Version]

The Lord, promising believers tribulation and the death of the cross, certainly seems cruel and undesirable next to Satan, who promises the glory of this world if you’ll follow him. C3 has opted for the latter in a big way, and we’re here to warn you about taking that wide road to destruction.

Prinzing, Ray:

Fleshly Works of Self-Righteousness          [PDF Version]

Lenella Maxwell posts Ray Prinzing's articles and considers him her mentor. So how does she respond when the Lord comes to her door? Has Ray led her to Christ and the worship of Him, or to the altar of self-righteousness, where he worshipped? Read to find out more about Ray, his fruits, and those of his torchbearer.

Quiboloy, Apollo:

The Self-Glorification of Apollo Quiboloy          [PDF Version]

When a man claims to be the only “Appointed Son” (yes, capitalized) of God, dresses in white, and boasts of his great spiritual accomplishments, then you know he is false. You also know it when politicians beat a path to his door. What lies people will believe to serve themselves! Yet the truth is always mixed in with the lies of those coming in deception. Our job is to identify and separate the two, so what is valuable is retained, while what is harmful is discarded.
