“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.” (2 Peter 2:1)

Welcome to another post in a new Category of posts that I have entitled, ‘False Teacher Friday – Learning The Importance of Being a Berean.’ Lord willing, once every month or so, I will be presenting you with information that you need to be aware of concerning certain popular Christian teachers or pastors, and information concerning some teachers or pastors that are not so well known. Their teachings will be misleading at the least, and heretical at the worst. If embraced, some of these teachings will lead you to a wrong understanding of Scripture, and others will lead you away from Biblical truth and the true Jesus Christ and into the world of mysticism and the occult.

Some of the teachers that I will be writing about will not be completely false, which is why their false teachings often go unnoticed, and this is what makes them so extremely dangerous. Their teachings can be over 97% Biblical truth, but if just that little bit of error is overlooked because we are not testing what they say in light of Scripture as God’s Word shows us we need to be doing (Acts 17:11), then slowly we will be led astray because we have placed our trust in man, instead of in God and the truth of His Word.

Capture Because my pastor told me so will not be a valid excuseOne day we will all stand before God, and each of us will be responsible for what we choose to believe as truth. If we clearly refuse to test the teachings of those we listen to in light of Scripture and ignore the many warnings that God has given us about false teachers and how some of them would arise from among us and we end up being led astray, then we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Some of these pastors and teachers that I will be writing about may be at the very top of your ‘Favorite List,’ but if you truly love Jesus and the truth of His Word, then you will be willing to hear the truth as hard as it may be for you to hear it at first. I am probably going to lose some followers to this blog because of what I may be writing in the months ahead, but as a Christian who loves God and His Word and who desires to please God and not man, and as a Christian who desires to expose error and wake Christians up to the extreme importance of being followers of Jesus Christ and not being a follower of any man (or woman) and their ministry, I must speak out and not remain silent. All I ask is that you would please pray for discernment, read and listen to all the information that I will be sharing with you, and examine the Scriptures to see if what these pastors and teachers say is true or not. The decision you make next will be entirely up to you. But you can never say, “No one cared enough to warn me.”

Now for today’s False Teacher alert:

LEARNING TO DISCERN TRUTH FROM ERROR

A STRONG WARNING CONCERNING CHUCK MISSLER

 

It has been quite a while since I have written a False Teacher Friday post for you. So before I spend most of my weekend trying to focus completely on finishing the post on mysticism that I have been telling you about, I decided to put together this short post in order to warn you about Chuck Missler.

For those of you who are avid followers of his, please keep in mind that it doesn’t matter how interesting his presentations may be, or how intelligent or knowledgeable he may be, or how many conferences he has taken part in over the years. What truly matters concerning him and with everyone who claims to be a Christian and who presents information to other Christians is: Does his or her life reflect the character of Jesus Christ in all that he or she says and does? Does everything that the person is saying line up with Scripture? Is Jesus Christ being exalted through everything that is being presented? Or is there a rather unbiblical message being presented that is leading those who are listening to the person’s  presentation away from Scripture and into unbiblical teachings or even into the realm of the occult? Please keep these things in mind and pray for discernment as you listen to everyone you look to for Biblical teachings, and now specifically as you listen to the following video of Susan Puzio and her interview with Sarah Leslie of DISCERNMENT MINISTRIES, (who is also an excellent writer for the HERESCOPE BLOG), Gaylene Goodroad, who once held two black belts and now speaks out and warns about the martial arts, (You can read her testimony HERE. She also writes some very informative and thought-provoking articles for the HERESCOPE BLOG, and you can read one of her articles HERE), and finally, you will also hear Susan Puzio interview David James of THE ALLIANCE FOR BIBLICAL INTEGRITY  on which he ‘discusses important curent theological issues facing the church.’ He is also the author of The Harbinger Fact or Fiction.

Here is just one of the many important questions that was presented to Susan’s guests during this interview:

“Who is Chuck Missler and why are his teachings dangerous?”

You are about to find out!

Please listen to this interview when time allows, so that you can learn to discern:

 

 

RELATED SCRIPTURES:

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”          (1 Timothy 4:1)

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.            (2 Peter 2:1)

“And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:25-31)

“Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:13)

Thank you very much for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You
