False Teacher – Chuck Missler

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 ( is a false teacher, Colleen? Yet he teaches much false doctrine. His name 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 you!”

“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 the question!

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 life, 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 the treasury.

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 84:11 MKJV).

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 such things?
(3) I tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
(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 perish.”

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 about that?

“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 20:7 MKJV).

Read God Heals Today, His Way. You also need to read Diabolical Doctrines and The True Marks of a Cult.

Colleen replied:

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 is wrong?

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 way into the kingdom of God



Paul responded:

Hi Colleen,

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.

You write:

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 up.

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 to the 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 facilitating serious 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).

How were we joined to His Church? Read Our Testimonies and wHaT tHe LoRd HaS dOnE wItH mE.

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.


  1. Brother (I use that term loosely),
    To whom are they pointing ??
    You are WAY off base !!
    WHERE did YOUR wisdom originate ?
    Understand, apart from YOUR wisdom
    ( OR LACK, Thereof ) !!


    1. Craig John ( C..J. ) April 1, 2021 at 5:46 pm

      If only we could all be as perfect you ! Chuck believed in the payment made by Christ for all of us so unworthy and taught such.( At least you will not be able to point out his Adamic nature that even you have when you see him in the Kingdom ).


  2. This is not false prophet, this is just different (or you may wrong if you are DEFINITELY SURE) teachings. Why are you attacking such a preacher? Is there something in you ?????


    1. How would you know the difference between a false or true prophet, Lam? Are you a valid judge?

      There’s also a difference between “attacking” and “exposing.”

      “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them”
      (Ephesians 5:11 MKJV).


      1. Even the devil can quote scripture. Funny you question some else’s credentials when yours are the one being questioned the most here!

        I shudder to be you on judgement day if you have errantly caused others to stumble in their faith. It might be YOU wishing the rocks would fall upon you…


  3. I find this attack unfounded and prejudicially
    Motivated. . Those who are teaching God’s Word should be given credit for helping us. Further, Missler constantly says “don’t take my word for it, research it yourself.”. Further, We live in a world of sin, therefore people will be sick and will perish. I cannot follow your “truth” with so much hate.


    1. Rhonda, you are so wrong. No attack, not unfounded, as proven with substance, while you give us nothing more than your judgment, which, I suspect, you find unacceptable for others to make judgments on who does or doesn’t believe, right?

      No prejudice, no partisanship. Millions “preach the Word,” but how many divide it rightly and don’t throw their slant on it? Many are sabotaging God’s Word and Missler is among them, even while saying with false humility and disingenuousness, “Don’t take my word for it, research it yourself.” That is a fake statement and not wise counsel, as it appears. God must be the witness, and not we.

      Yes, sinners everywhere, perishing. All because of phonies like Missler…and YOU, Rhonda, who have not taken up the cross of Christ but who have followed men and swallowed their doctrine. Believing lies ushers you step by step into the darkness, death, and hell.

      No hate here whatsoever, Rhonda, except that we hate lies, especially those spoken in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. People never perish for nothing – on that, the Scriptures are perfectly clear. Why don’t you know that? It’s because you would rather have your pleasures and salving of conscience rather than dying to this world and knowing Him Who died and rose on our behalf. To prove who I am and what I honestly believe, and to dampen your heart-judgment of me and those with me, go to: If on FB, check out Victor Hafichuk Music. Listen to the songs I sing and tell me there’s phoniness or hatred. You’ll find the opposite – reality and love, that’s all. An evil tree can’t bear good fruit and a good tree can’t bear bad fruit.

      But while you know these sayings, you don’t know their Reality or Power. You are Chuck Missler’s fruit, manifest for all to see. What they do with what they witness is another matter entirely.

      Let me know how the songs go for you. Many more to come, Lord willing, and He is. I am as He and He comes in me. We speak this Word to you today.


  4. When you point your finger at someone, here are three fingers pointing back at you. I listened to Missler and could not discern any false teaching. Missler usually indicates what can be documented and what can’t. That’s more than I can say for this site.


    1. Oh, wow, John! That is SO deep – the finger thing, I mean – never heard that one before, except maybe a few hundred times over the years. You have your Ph.D. in human anatomy now?

      The fact is you have no discernment, so how are YOU to tell? The other fact is I’m pointing all fingers and thumbs at false teachers; they and their worshippers don’t get it or like it.

      Go your way, judge. This isn’t your courtroom. It’s the white throne room of God, and YOU have been judged. Thus says the Lord.


      1. The fact that you are telling someone that they have NO DISCERNMENT when you only have heard their opinion on this ONE ISSUE speaks volumes of you!

        I won’t call you a KNOW IT ALL, because then I’d be stooping to your level and be guilty of the same thing, but you sure SURE TALK AS IF YOU KNOW IT ALL.

        Shame on you.


  5. What a load of rubbish to say that Chuck Missler is a false teacher.


    1. Now, tell me, Simon, if that is the Word of the Lord you speak or the words of a devil?

      Is not the answer to my question obvious to the wise? And are you not an evident sample of Missler’s fruit?


    2. Thank you for supporting Chuck Missler. He is a blessing in my life with his extra ordinary knowledge that can only be given by Our Lord Yeshua and the Holy Spirit. I would be careful about slandering God’s anointed. Peace and love to all who are searching His Truth..


    3. Chuck was the absolute best Bible teacher. No one better. Victor has to be from Satan. Take heed let no man deceive you. He’s a horrible demon.


  6. What precisely have you found false in his teachings? What I see from you are vague ideas. Nothing really solid.
    Missler reminds us of Acts 17:11 in nearly every teaching I’ve heard. And is using a public forum wrong? If so what is this?
    Are you upset because he is known? Or because his storehouse is full?
    You mentioned his family being ill and that a true minister of God that would not happen to. What about Job?


    1. The evidence is all there in the paper, Crystal, but though you have eyes you can’t see.

      And Chuck Missler wasn’t blessed. His wife died of disease. His own son preceded him in death from disease. This doesn’t even include the confoundedness that comes fro preaching and believing lies. He was in, and was an ambassador of, hell.

      Job didn’t die from disease. He was chastened by God but repented and was blessed.


      1. What an interesting thing to say. God gave Dr. Chuck Missler’s family diseases. Job was not afflicted with disease by God. Job did not loose everything because God made it happen. Because Job was a good servant of God and was righteous, God allowed Satan to test him. It is a belief that the saved are targets of Satan because your salvation can never be taken away but your good reputation can. That is how Satan gets nonbelievers to doubt God. Also- Read Romans 14. We all have our own relationship with God. Dr. Missler is not teaching anything that is not biblical. He is not saying that we should sin or go against God. He is only showing how true the bible is. He is only encouraging others to dig in deeper. He is a blessing. People should not be afraid to learn more about the bible. What you will find is more truth. Some churches may discourage Dr. Missler’s teaching because they want to control their congregation. Your walk should be with God, not a group of people. You should be able to discuss the bible and express what you understand and be respected for it. (Not talking about the dismissing parts of the bible to allow sin, or twisting the bible to condone what they want to do.) To have questions is not to doubt God, but to get to know Him better. God knows that I have needed a deeper understanding of His word and lead me to Dr Missler’s website. I pray, if this is not what He wants me to learn, He will take it away from me. He hasn’t. God bless.


        1. Christine, God brought Job through and he flourished, doubling his possessions and giving him more children. Chuck Missler, his wife, and one son all perished in wickedness.


          1. Brought Job through what?!? His trials. Are you saying that He didn’t for Chuck?!?

            You have no idea the state of their souls when they died. You are VERY PRESUMPTUOUS, assuming you know what only God can know.

            Did Jesus’ disciples “flourish” before they died, did Jesus have even a place to lay his head.

            You sound like one of those prosperity “Christians” who judge holiness according to prosperity.



            1. No, He didn’t do that for Chuck or his wife or son. They all perished in their state. Had they repented they would have been restored.

              Job 36:6 He will not keep alive one who is wicked, but gives right to the afflicted.
              Job 36:7 He withdraws not His eyes from the righteous, but they are like kings on the throne; yes, He causes them to sit forever, and they are very high.
              Job 36:8 And if they are bound in chains, and are held in cords of affliction,
              Job 36:9 then He shows them their work, and their sins, that they have behaved themselves proudly.
              Job 36:10 He also opens their ears to teaching, and commands that they return from iniquity.
              Job 36:11 If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in blessedness, and their years in pleasures.
              Job 36:12 But if they do not obey, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

              And martyrdom is an entirely different thing – a righteous death, and suffering for righteousness sake and having no place in this world, as Jesus was referring to, is the same.

              You’re sickened because you have no stomach for the Truth, Dean.

      2. Mate Job’s wife died and his ten kids died (preceded Jobs death) . Also this idea that good men and women of God wont persevere is ridiculous, and you can start with Daniel 17 and 18 which they explicitly state that God may not rescue them and allow their life to be seized by the furnace. If you absolutely need to judge a man of God by the despair in their life or the cushiness of their life, you would probably be more accurate in judging those that aren’t enduring.

        I don’t want to be mean here, but you really should become much more learnt on Christianity before you try and give people lessons on what it entails and most certainly need to be much more apt then what you are before you begin passing judgement on others.


      3. #1Job wasn’t diseased for the sake of chastening–he was already approved by God. God allowed Satan to torment Job to prove his faithfulness.
        #2 Disease is not a de facto result of personal sin but the consequence of a fallen world. Until Christ returns *everyone* will eventually die from something.


      4. Nice go-around. How about Job’s kids, all of them, and his possessions??


        1. Yes, Carl, what about Job’s kids? They perished in their sins, and Job was corrected, taken to a new and wonderful place with new children and all of his possessions doubled IN THIS LIFE. Can the same be said of Chuck Missler?


  7. Lets see what the Christ says through Gods word,, let you judge not or the Lord will come upon you with a bigger Judgement, so come on Body of Christ, who is the one suffering here, is anyone thinking of the Holy Spirit, thats right the Holy Spirit grieves. To grieve the Holy Spirit is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit and thats one place you’s don’t want to go. That’s why the Church (Body of Christ) is empty of the Holy Spirit in these days, he has more fun at Sunday school. So Victor just one thing to say, keep your eyes on Christ not on man, because its easy for a Camel to go through a eye of a needle then for you and I to get into Heaven. You mention music, well music draws coloured lights and carnal people, where true men of God saves souls not passes judgement. Crystal you go girl Bless you


  8. Dr Dan Pilgreen April 9, 2020 at 4:14 am

    Your attack Is absolute nonsense. Did you actually say that the man’s wife and son contracted cancer because he was a false teacher. That is idiot.

    The rest of the diatribe attacking him a scripture was so off-base it doesn’t even warrant an answer.

    Dr. Mistler is 10 times smarter than you’ll ever be.

    He is not a false teacher you are. Your attacks don’t make any sense at all biblically.

    I guess you don’t think pastors should be paid as the Bible Instructs.
    you need to repent.


    1. Luke 6:37
      Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

      Luke 6:41
      Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?

      John 8:7
      When they continued to question Him, He straightened up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to cast a stone at her.”

      Romans 2:1
      You therefore have no excuse, you who pass judgment on another. For on whatever grounds you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.

      Romans 14:10
      Why, then, do you judge your brother? Or why do you belittle your brother? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat.

      Romans 14:13
      Therefore let us stop judging one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way.

      1 Corinthians 4:5
      Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.

      James 4:11
      Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the Law and judges it. And if you judge the Law, you are not a practitioner of the Law, but a judge of it.


  9. Judge not, that you be not judged.

    Isaiah 66:5
    Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

    Ezekiel 16:52-56
    Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters…

    Luke 6:37
    Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:


  10. Nonsense. Vile and lacking the holy spirit.


  11. We are not babies who drink their milk and go to sleep.
    We are adults who examine the items, partake and then investigate, discuss, pray over and discard or keep as we think fit.


  12. I found Chuck Missler few years ago and was fascinated by his knowledge of quantum physics and how he related it to the Bible. Learned a great deal from watching many hours but then came the deal breaker: he preaches the pre tribulation rapture. it is a man made deception and not based on Scripture. His friend Hal Lindsey wrote the book Late Great Planet Earth which started a destructive detour from Biblical truth. Hal promulgated the preposterous idea that the church would be raptured before the tribulation and those people would watch the drama play out on earth from the balcony of heaven. This can be disproved many times over it is blasphemy.
    Sadly so few people will read the book of Revelation and research Gods Word. Most seem to look to tv ministers and believe what they are told. As incredibly intelligent as Chuck Missiles is its astounding that he is teaching the deception of the rapture. His friend Hal made millions and millions on the book and sadly many other preachers etc have jumped on board of this heretical lie.
    Chuck is so intelligent and was devastated when I found out he pushes the pre tribulation rapture which leads people to not read Gods Word and warnings on what to be prepared for in the fight against Satan. He teaches don’t worry you won’t be here. That is saying that GOD WROTE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION TO NOT BE READ AND UNDERSTOOD??
    VERY disappointed.


    1. You don’t read about pre-tribulation rapture anywhere in the Bible except in Paul’s letters. Paul was teaching “his gospel,” as he often refers to it, because it was given directly to him, straight from God. A gospel that differed from the gospel of the Twelve Apostles for Isreal.

      The Twelve Apostles taught the gospel of circumcicision (the law) to Isreal. The Book of Revelation is all about the tribulation Isreal will have to endure, the fire through which it will have to pass to reach the Kingdom.

      Paul’s letters, on the otherhand, are addressed to the Church of Christ or the Gentiles, who Paul clearly tells us will be spared having to endure the end times tribulation.


  13. Goodness, you write as a petulant child, Victor. There is a bitterness slithering off all your words. And framing and blaming the illnesses of man’s wife and child as punishment for Missler? You are to be avoided. Get thee hence.


  14. Partner, i believe you may be afflicted with legalism. Symptoms of the disease are as follows: (1) Others must hold the same views (2) Their logic must follow the same path and sources as yourself (3) It any one or many beliefs you hold are not held by the other individual, it must be evil (4) Your God is limited to your predefined specifications and therefore everyone else must adhere to your views or those persons cannot know your God.

    Christ came to earth to bury legalism and set us free so that we could be in fellowship with him. You seem to want to reattach those chains for your own benefit.


  15. Disgusted by your LIES February 21, 2021 at 4:27 am

    Your a legalistic arsehole.

    Hows that for Truth.

    Chuck Missler was A FINE TEACHER.


  16. Jonathan Van Ryn March 27, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    I didn’t see a whole lot of false teachings addressed in what you wrote. You ought to be more careful in referring to others as false teachers. What you are doing is “back biting”.


  17. To say that about Chuckand his famuly goes against all that God teaches, you should be ashamed of yourself! Twisting scrupture to fit your own sick narrative
    One thinks you are somewhat jelous and obsessed with a man that was truly touched by God, Chuck Missler is amazing and has touched millions with his true teaching of the word of God
    Im disgusted by what you imply and it in no way mirrors what God teaches about how we treat our fellow man! Strikes me you are the word of satan and the most judgemental unGodly specimen ive ever had the misfortune to come across
    Shame on you!!!!


  18. So now that I have read all the comments, my question is to Paul: In response to the first question and your response: Who founded the Path of Truth and what makes the Path of Truth different. I think all could agree that you have not answered either of those phrases. In addition I ask: How is the Path of Truth funded, who is on the board if there is one. Maybe some good explanation would clear up the fact that you have some legs to stand on. Keep in mind that Scripture tells us that even the elect would be deceived if that were possible. So let’s have some credentials.
