Definition of False Teacher: One who presumes
to teach in the Name of the Lord when God has not sent him.
Aimee McPherson - Not a Woman of God
Victor wrote this letter to a woman who used the name “Granny.” She
sent us Aimee Semple McPherson’s website when she unsubscribed from The
Issues of Life.
I went to the website you gave us. There is nothing there of reality.
It is religious “feel good” material from the knowledge
of good and evil; there is no life there. Such sites are a dime a dozen,
deceiving people and lulling them into a false sense of security with
God. Yes, God is good; yes, He is love; yes, without faith it is impossible
to please Him. Yet, in truth, none of those things are found in that
site. More than anything else, works of the flesh are manifest. Of
these, it is said:
“Concerning the works of men, by the Words of Your lips, I am
kept from the paths of the destroyer” (Psalms 17:4 MKJV).
Foursquare was started by a woman. God has never indicated in any
way in Scripture that He has used females to teach or exercise authority
over men. His apostles, pastors, evangelists, teachers, elders and
deacons exercising authority with men and churches have been men in
Scripture. Why did not the Lord appoint a female apostle?
As for prophets, while there have been women (prophetesses), they
have not been in positions of authority, with the exception of one
that I know of, and, even there, Barak was free to decide for himself.
Deborah could not and did not exercise authority in his life in the
matter recorded. Miriam was a prophetess, but she was not there to
teach men or exercise authority over them. So with Huldah and others.
Aimee Semple McPherson was a sensationalist, a deceiver, a deluded
soul, and not a woman of God, even if she started no church at all.
Foursquare comes from her. Those involved are deceived. They do not
serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
So this explains why we must preach that which your reject. In your
darkness of “love,” “faith,” and “righteousness,” you
are perishing. Read Our Testimonies, Counterfeit
High Places and The
True Marks of a Cult, that is, if you are truly
interested in doing God’s will rather than your own, or any other.
Also read Religious Images,
Icons, and Likenesses.
We have removed your address from the mailing list of The Issues
Contending earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints, addressing
the ungodly who destroy themselves in their “godliness,”
“So he said to him, Friend, how did you come in here not having
wedding clothes? And he was speechless” (Matthew 22:12 EMTV).
