Definition of False Teacher: One who presumes

False Teachers - Paul
& Jan Crouch
The “Trinity Broadcasting
Network,” also known as “The Blasphemy Network” (TBN),
presents Christianity as a carnival – “a
frenetic disorganized (and often comic) disturbance suggestive of
a large public entertainment.” This
is the work of Paul and Jan Crouch and their associated band of thieves,
knaves, liars, and pretenders. But God isn’t mocked. “For
he sowing to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh” (Galatians
A new correspondent writes:
Ok my question.? What is your opinion of TBN and it's founders
jan and Paul crouch! Are there any decent truth baring messengers of
anymore that haven't sold out to the world?
I'm so disappointed
what I see in the name of god while practicing apostasy ? Do they not
god? That goes for swaggert, oral roberts!
! And some of the preachers that have been in the way for many
years! I just don’t understand how they have no fear of gods judgement!
rarely watch Christian t.v because of the carnival atmosphere!
How goes the battle of faith? Always know the Lord is faithful
to hear and answer all legitimate cries and needs. You need wisdom?
for it and believe you’ve received, and you’ll have all
“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives
to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him” (James
“And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing,
you shall receive” (Matthew 21:22 MKJV).
“And this is the confidence that we have toward Him, that if we
ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that
hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions
that we desired of Him” (1 John 5:14-15 MKJV).
You need to know
that Jimmy Swaggart, Oral Roberts, and Paul and Jan Crouch are not
men and women of God. They are salesmen,
charlatans, and false teachers. The same goes for any who appear
ministers of the Lord on TBN – no exceptions; they are
all devils. I find the Crouches especially demonic. These mercenary
sorcerers all glory in the spotlight, promoting themselves
in the Lord’s
Name and falsely representing Him for gain and acclaim. As
you say, these people have no fear of God.
And you rightly
used the description of a “carnival atmosphere” with
them. TBN is nothing more than a religious circus, deceiving
the simple and lovers of pleasures in the Name of Jesus Christ.
These people are
brazen in their ways.
Jude 1:11-13 MKJV
(11) Woe to them! For they went the way of Cain, and gave themselves
up to the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the
gainsaying of Korah.
(12) These are sunken rocks in your love feasts, feasting
together with you; feeding themselves without fear; waterless
being carried about by winds; fruitless autumn trees, having
plucked up by the roots;
(13) wild waves of the sea foaming up their shames; wandering
stars for whom blackness of darkness has been kept forever.
there to attract and entertain the world for gain and pleasure
(Proverbs 7). The word “carnival” has
its origin in carnality, which is ever in opposition to Jesus
2 Timothy 3:6-9 MKJV
(6) For of these are those who creep into houses and lead
captive silly women loaded with sins, led away with different
(7) ever learning and never able to come to the full knowledge
of the truth.
(8) But as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so these
also resist the truth, men of corrupt mind, reprobate concerning
(9) But they shall proceed no further. For their foolishness
shall be plain to all, as theirs also became.
“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace 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 8:6-8 MKJV).
Paul adds about the Crouches and TBN:
The word “carnival” is derived from the Medieval Latin,
carne vale, meaning “flesh, farewell!” This explains the
presence and nature of carnivals worldwide (such as “Mardi Gras”)
Lent, by dictionary definition, is, “A period
of 40 days before Easter during which many Christians do not eat certain
foods or do pleasurable
activities as a way of remembering the suffering of Jesus Christ.”
It’s not my purpose here to get into how Lent is vexing to the
Spirit of Christ, Who freely grants repentance and obedience to those
who believe without ritual, reenactment, or works of the flesh trying
to get rid of the flesh, an absurdity. The point for now is that the
carnival preceding Lent is man’s idea of his last chance to celebrate
the lusts of the flesh before they’re put away.
That’s why carnivals are licentious affairs, masquerades where
people “let their hair down” to be whatever they want in
Doesn’t that exactly describe the antics on TBN? There you see
spiritual whoredom perpetrated by people wearing masks, stamping God’s
endorsement on whatever their corrupt hearts desire. They put the Day
of Judgment, Christ’s appearing, into the future, when they expect
they’ll be able to make up for fleshly indulgences now. Blinded
by sin and unbelief, they don’t consider the terrible hangover
that follows wanton partying, or the dreadful harvest for which they
so diligently sow in the flesh.
Romans 2:5-8 ESV
(5) But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up
wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment
will be revealed.
(6) He will render to each one according to his works:
(7) to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and
immortality, he will give eternal life;
(8) but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but
obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.
