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 ) !!

  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).

  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.

  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?
