Testing the “Greatest” Teachers

Dear Sir,

I came across your website by chance, and am astonished that you have listed many people that I respect, including Billy Graham, as false teachers.  However I note that three other wellknown servants of God have not been mentioned, and they are R.T. Kendall, George Mueller, and Mother Theresa. Have you studied their teachings, and if so, what is your sincere opinion about them?

I appreciate your taking time and effort to consider my question.

Thank you.

Joseph

Our opinion doesn’t matter, Joseph – only the Word of God counts. After all, it was the Lord Who exposed Billy Graham to us.

Here’s what we have on those others you mention:

George Müller: Segment in “A Cloud Without Water”

“Mother Teresa”: (Segments from various writings on our site)

You mention “Mother Teresa” and Savonarola as inspiring examples of God’s handiwork. But these two are products of the Catholic Church, which has nothing to do with the Lord Jesus Christ. That’s why they are praised by those who don’t know Him:

“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).

From: False Teacher – Martin Luther King, Jr. – “Christian” Atheist: Using …

Just as Jesus said to call no man “Father,” so it is also right in the sight of God to call no woman “Mother.” You call Teresa “Mother” contrary to the commandment of the Lord, but speaking the truth about yourself. She, and the Catholic Church, is your mother, in vehement opposition to God and His rulership.

From: False Teacher – Shane Claiborne – The Gospel of Do-Gooding by …

Godly humility isn’t a set of feelings, an emotional disposition, a product man can concoct. It isn’t a set of downcast eyes, slouched shoulders, clasped praying or steepled hands, subdued, mealy-mouthed voice, or meekness of disposition, as one was accustomed to seeing with “Mother Teresa” and “Pope (Father) John Paul II.”

So just what IS humility? It is the willingness to believe and obey God. It is to see things His way and to agree with Him. It is to recognize that any piety on our part isn’t our doing, but His. We have nothing of which to boast or preach in our own selves. Humility is the recognition that we are unprofitable servants, unworthy of any credit or thanks, no matter what the Lord may do with or by us. This is the true faith of Christ.

From: False Teacher – Nita Johnson – Haughty Humility

Another: “Today thousands of local churches are dying because of Christians who are unwilling to serve…. Mother Teresa once said, ‘Holy living consists of doing God’s work with a smile.‘”

The churches of men aren’t dying. They’re dead, and always have been. The service Warren is soliciting isn’t the works of faith, but of the flesh. Are any of His people wearying themselves in these fires? Come out from among them, as He commands, and He will be as a Father to you, and you shall then be His sons and daughters.

As Jesus said to call no man “Father,” so He also would not have you call any woman “Mother.” God is our Father from Heaven, and Heavenly Jerusalem is the mother of of all true believers. The false ones, such as Teresa, will tell you to do God’s work with a smile. Jesus sweated blood doing the will of the Father, and asked that the cup be taken from Him. Here is what Paul suffered doing God’s work:

“Five times from the Jews I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked. I have spent a night and a day in the deep. I have been in travels often; in dangers from waters; in dangers from robbers; in dangers from my race; in dangers from the heathen; in dangers in the city; in dangers in the wilderness; in dangers on the sea; in dangers among false brothers. I have been in hardship and toil; often in watchings; in hunger and thirst; often in fastings; in cold and nakedness; besides the things outside conspiring against me daily, the care of all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is caused to stumble, and I do not burn?” (2 Corinthians 11:24-29)

Is smiling what it is all about? Those who have the love of God do His will despite how they feel, or how they appear to men. Inside, we have the peace of God that passes understanding. Truly, it is not about having long faces, but this talk of doing the will of God with a smile is more self-righteousness and works of the flesh; it is religious unreality. Frankly, it is blasphemy with self-aggrandizement.

From: False Teacher – Rick Warren: The Purpose Driven Life: Promoting …

Sholom: “Community is the result of a certain spirit which shares with others and regards others as worthy of giving up one’s life for….”

Paul: Yes, we would agree there is a certain spirit at work here (in the “tribes”), which is not the Spirit of the Lord. Many do works that are considered noble – “Mother” Teresa, for example. She gave up her life to circumstances far more uncomfortable than what you people have. Yet she was also in her own works and those of the Catholic Church, which is a persecutor of Jesus Christ, not a fruit of Him. So your “certain spirit” means nothing to God. We are commanded to test the spirits. “Let God be true but every man a liar…” (Romans 3:4). The Scripture means what It says.

From: Who Represents God?

In your present works of social welfare, you could become the “Mother Teresa” of Pakistan. Even though you say you are not Catholic, this work makes you a close relative. It is not the work of God or the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are not here, as Jesus said, to feed the multitudes who come looking for physical sustenance.

From: False Teacher – Ministers of Mammon: Gathered and Bundled

As for R.T. Kendall, he’s another product and promoter of false Christianity. We see, for example, that he calls himself a “Calvinist.” Here’s the lowdown on that:

The Fruit of Cain Multiplied: The Murderer John Calvin

Use The True Marks of a Cult and Diabolical Doctrines as guidelines given by God according to the truth and righteousness revealed in Jesus Christ. After you’ve red all the links we’ve given you, let us know how you’re doing.

Dear Mr. Cohen,

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my query. While I cannot agree with your viewpoints, I appreciate your intensity of convictions. But what amazes me is that you have categorized ALL the greatest servants of God since the apostolic age, as viewed by most Christians, as false prophets. It seems only you and your team are the only true ones in this age. If I am mistaken in this impression, can you please take a little more time to write to me and give me the names of a few ministers today who are true prophets in your estimate?

Thanks again.

Joseph

And does it amaze you, Joseph, that the Word of God is in agreement with everything we’ve said about these false teachers?

I get curious if he is false prophet but I am curious what Bible u r reading from too. What is MKJV?  And why such harsh judgement of a set free man. He is not promoting God in a bold way. God shows up in miraculous ways when you r bold and you step out of your comfort zone. I seen it for myself. Holy Spirit can lead you into incredible situations.  God does love us all. We r all sinners but we can be saved by grace.  None of us are perfect til Heaven. I believe Todd White is definitely being used of God. Very rare to have bold people like him. Peter was greatly used of God and he denied Christ at one time. God can use any of us, Christian or not for his glory.  You sound like you r not set free yourself. I will be praying for you too.

El Arrepentimiento, Colocando la Carreta Delante del Caballo
English - Spanish De: Paul Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Lunes, 2 de Mayo, 2016 5:00 AM Asunto: 8 Pasos Para el Arrepentimiento Hola chicos, Interesante página. Solo una pregunta sobre sus ochos pasos para el arrepentimiento. ¿Qué pasaría si cometieras un pecado inconscientemente, como seguirías los 8 pasos? Si yo he cometido un pecado del que no estoy consciente, ¿eso significa que no he completado el arrepentimiento correcto?  Saludos Paul De: Paul Cohen y Víctor Para: Paul Enviado: Domingo, 08 de Mayo, 2016 5:09 PM Asunto: Re: 8 Pasos Para el Arrepentimiento Paul, no se trata de poner puntos en todas las “íes” y cruzar todas las “tes”. Se trata de motivos y actitud. Si buscas al Señor para hacer Su voluntad, seguramente Él te hará saber todo lo que necesitas saber. Él te convencerá de cualquier pecado y te dará el don del arrepentimiento para que te apartes de eso. Cree y obedece; es por tu vida, Su Eterna Vida Él da a aquellos que creen en Él. Jesucristo es el Señor. Víctor Paul, te habla Paul Cohen. Tú tienes la carreta delante del caballo. Esos 8 elementos siguen al arrepentimiento que viene de Dios. En otras palabras, cuando esos elementos están presentes, sabemos que Dios está haciendo una obra milagrosa de salvación en la persona. Y cuando cualquiera de esos elementos está ausente, sabemos que Dios no está haciendo el trabajo. ¿Y piensas esto, oh hombre, que juzgas a los que hacen tales cosas y haces lo mismo, que tú esca...
