Hillsong TV Channel exemplifies what is wrong with their Theology.

From Emergent Watch we share the following article:

Hillsong TV Channel exemplifies what is wrong with their Theology.

HillCON1

If there are any lingering doubts about exactly WHAT Hillsong Churches are all about, this should put them to rest: Consider the new “Hillsong Channel” [TV], and look at the programs they carry! The Word Faith heresy is represented by such luminaries as Joyce Meyer, James Robison, Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince, John Gray and Jentzen Franklin. Other aberrants include TD Jakes, Steven Furtick and contemplative promoter Max Lucado. There is not one true Biblical teaching program on the entire channel, which is now carried globally via Satellite! For a limited time, Hillsong Channel is “free” for now, but soon will be proprietary pay-2-view. Follow the money!

Miami Grooming: Insider exposes Hillsong Church’s secret undermining of Calvary Kendall Miami

Tags

,

Is Hillsong “championing” the cause of your local church? An insider from Calvary Kendall Miami shines a light behind the scenes as to how Hillsong assimilates churches into their movement:

It’s done by deceit.

This type of unethical take-over of churches is a reoccurring phenomena within the Hillsong movement. Significant churches that have been taken over by Hillsong are:

Garden City Church
Grace City Church
Oslo Christian Center

Pay attention to the warning signs.

CALVARY CHAPEL “TAKE-OVER” IN MIAMI

Imagine:  It’s 2010 and you are happy at your Calvary Chapel church. All seems to be going well. Then the senior pastor decides he wants to change direction and become a Hillsong copy and join the Hillsong family. But you don’t know this. All you know is your pastor kicked you out because you believe in Jesus and His Word. Then you find out what was happening because Christians online were forced to take their experiences online and warn everybody about your pastor’s agenda.

This is what people experienced under the leadership of Hillsong “Family” leader Pedro Garcia at Calvary Kendall, Miami.

“Pastor” Pedro of Calvary Kendall was influenced to do church differently after attending a Hillsong Concert in 2010. Later, Pedro personally met with Hillsong’s senior leader Brian Houston over dinner. Houston invited Pedro to have his church join the Hillsong Family. This invitation was kept secret and “Pastor” Pedro Garcia proceeded to start the process of assimilation into Hillsong without telling his congregation of his agenda.

Ps Pedro Garcia Removed from Calvary Kendall Miami & Hillsong Family?

Calvary Chapel’s founding pastor, Pedro Garcia has recently been removed from ministry due to ‘lifestyle issues”. Before looking at this, we think it is important that readers look at Garcia’s association with Hillsong and what Brian Houstons says his ‘Hillsong Family’ is.

WHAT IS THE HILLSONG FAMILY?

Calvary Chapel was assimilated into the Hillsong Family a few years ago. Ken Silva from Apprising ministres observed the assimilation happening:

Pagans uniting under the guise of Christianity – Ronnie Floyd included.

Hillsong and Roman Catholicism have one thing in common: paganism.

Hillsong uniting with Roman Catholicism and the false social gospel (Part 4)

A Christian church is called to have its ministers boldly claim the Christian gospel of salvation as outlined in 1 Corinthians 15, and love Jesus by holding to his teachings. The leaders of Hillsong do neither but have united with Roman Catholicism and by doing so, to unite Christianity with paganism.

Here is another case of Hillsong attempting to get Christianity to unite with Rome. [Click here to see what Roman Catholicism still teaches about salvation.]

These people who are pushing for this unity aren’t demonstrating love for God and His bride. If they loved God, they would love his Word. Instead they are encouraging Christianity to throw out Jesus Christ’s Word, turn their back on being his disciples and be amalgamated for the sake of unity.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” – Jesus, John 14:15

Carl Lentz mocks Trump and makes Brian Houston a liar over Naked Cowboy stunt…

Tags

We broke a story where Hillsong New York decided to have a Naked Cowboy take to the stage at their women’s Colour Conference Conference this year.

Family friendly Hillsong Includes the Dancing Naked Cowboy?

We then found out that it was a Hillsong Youth Pastor that played the controversial character.

If You’re Sexy and a Pastor, play the Cowboy?

When the story refused to die and the media started to report on it, Brian Houston then decided to respond. We called him out for lying as he was implying that Hillsong leadership had no idea how the Naked Cowboy ended up in the production.

Cowboy Damage Control: Hillsong leaders had no idea about Naked Cowboy’s appearance?

Lucky for all the Hillsong apologists, you don’t have to accuse us of claiming that Brian Houston lied. Lentz reveals to us this time that Brian Houston was simply being deceitful.

“What do you want to know about the Naked Cowboy? … We had a vague look-alike. It was a bad idea… But we like to make issues out of stuff so. Uh- it was our youth pastor. Um- it wasn’t his fault.” [See video below]

Good on you Brian for slagging off at people for perpetuating the story and accusing them of peddling “hearsay and rumour.”

You will notice that Carl Lentz took the opportunity to take a swipe at Christians (disciples/followers of Jesus who who have standards). Lentz clearly did not like being held accountable to Jesus’ standards. But who did he blame for his sins?

The origins of Hillsong (Part 4): Like dictator, like son

Tags

,

Many people assume that the origins of Hillsong originated from Charismaticism, Pentecostalism or the Salvation Army. This is not true.

This series of articles looks at the history of the New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR) and how it overtook the AOG in NZ, the AOG in Australia and how Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong/Christian Life Center, was instrumental in spreading Latter Rain influences throughout New Zealand and Australian churches. In this article we will explore how Frank Houston redefined church governance under his apostolic leadership and removed the democratic voting rights of his church members.

The New Apostolic Reformation cult preach a false Jesus, false gospel and New Age metaphysical teachings and strategies in an attempt to bring heaven to earth.

You can read our articles to see how Frank Houston was influenced by the NOLR cult through the teachings of false prophet and fraudulent healer William Branham and other New Zealand Latter Rainers in his church:

Brian Houston: “Blocking haters on Twitter is like sport”

Tags

, , , , ,

 

Do you sometimes question the things Brian Houston says or does at Hillsong? Maybe you are offended how he covered up his father’s pedophilia? Or how he lied about his father to his church, the media and the rest of the word? Maybe you are offended how Brian Houston condemns your church or your Christian friends so he can elevate his Hillsong movement?

Maybe you are offended with his scripture twisting? His financial scamming? His abusive behaviour towards other people? His bullying towards women who were asking for help or simply asking questions?

If you do have these types of questions, make sure you say nothing. According to Brian, you’re a hater. And according to Brian, this means he can’t wait to block you. (He admits he gets an adrenaline rush if he blocks haters like you.)

The Australian media have publicly labeled Brian Houston a megalomaniac. This kind of behaviour from Brian only confirms that he shows no stability as a pastor or even as a compassionate human being. We think “megalomaniac” is fitting. What are your thoughts on Brian Houston’s twitter comment?

Paul & Jan Crouch: An example of the Evangelical Industrial Complex in action

If you want a good example how the Evangelical Industrial Complex (EIC) works, this article from Marsha West from Berean Research provides good insight into how the Christian A-Post-ate spin the lives of Paul and Jan Crouch:

Some Christian news blogs and high-profile leaders overlook the truth

When I heard that Jan Crouch died of a massive stroke, to be quite honest, I was not saddened by the news.  Why?  Well, for one thing Jan and her deceased husband Paul promoted the worst sort of heresy imaginable: Word of Faith.  But you wouldn’t find that out by reading the Christian Post’s puff piece.  Janice Crouch was a controversial figure to be sure. But inquiring minds learned nothing about that from CP.  Certainly part of the reason for the controversy was the colossal pink-tinged “cotton candy” wigs, heavy make-up, and the lavish lifestyle she and husband Paul enjoyed.  But there were many other reasons the Crouches were controversial.  So let’s take a quick look at their history.

The couple were the founders and leaders of Trinity Broadcasting Network.  TBN has been in business since 1973 and has an estimated net worth of half a billion dollars.  A single Praise-A-Thon can bilk faithful viewers out of as much as $50 million tax exempt donations. The Crouches were known for their scandalous statements against anyone who dared challenge the cultic Faith teaching they were spreading on a global scale via their cable TV network. The following is excerpted from “Televangelist Paul Crouch Leaves a Dirty Legacy; Evangelical Christians Look the Other Way” by Terry Firma:

The New York Times published an exposé of the Crouches’ financial tricks last year. It tells you volumes about how the darling duo spent all that revenue from donations, TV rights, and investments.

For instance:

 

The [couple’s] lavish perquisites, described by [estranged granddaughter and former financial officer Brittany] Koper and corroborated by interviews with two other former TBN employees, include additional, often-vacant homes in Texas and on the former Conway Twitty estate in Tennessee, corporate jets valued at $8 million and $49 million each and thousand-dollar dinners with fine wines, paid with tax-exempt funds.

More:

[F]ormer TBN employees also said that dozens of staff members, including Ms. Koper, chauffeurs, sound engineers and others had been ordained as ministers by TBN. This, she said, allowed the network to avoid paying Social Security taxes on their salaries and made it easier to justify providing family members with rent-free houses, sometimes called “parsonages.” (Source)

The above is just a tidbit of information that can be gleaned from a Google search.  But nothing like this was mentioned in CP’s report, even though the controversy still rages.  Also not mentioned in the puff piece is the fact that because of TBN, Faith teaching has become one of this era’s greatest threats to authentic Christianity.

Joseph Chambers wrote a piece entitled “The Confused World of Paul and Jan Crouch” and provides the transcript of a chat Kenneth Copeland had with the Crouches where he lays out the force of faith to them. Briefly, Copeland believes faith is a tangible force. This force is released through the spoken word, thus name-it-and-claim-it.  When we speak words of faith, power is discharged that will accomplish our desires. Through faith we can have health, wealth, success – anything we want.  Copeland also spins the yarn that alleged laws of the universe can be manipulated independent of God.  Does this mean God is subject to the laws He created?  According to word-faith theology, yes.

What Faith Is Not

Now to the discussion.  As we will see, when presented with Ken Copeland’s decidedlyunbiblicalmetaphysical view of faith, there is no argument from the Crouches — no contending for the faith as believers are commanded to do in Jude 1:3:

Kenneth Copeland: “The force of faith is in the spiritual realm a great deal like certain forces in the natural realm. It is a spiritual force, like gravity is a natural force, and electricity is a natural force of power.”

Paul Crouch: “A measurable natural force.”

Kenneth Copeland: “It’s a measurable force, it’s conductible, it’s perceptible to the touch . . . Faith is a spiritual force, it’s perceptible, . . . it is a tangible force, it’s an invisible force, so is gravity, but it is there.”

Paul Crouch: “So is electricity . . . Does God use faith?”

Kenneth Copeland: “Surely.”

Paul Crouch: “. . . See, here is the sore spot. There are those who say . . .”

Jan Crouch: “Not with him.” (speaking of Copeland)

Paul Crouch: “Not with you.” (lots of laughter follows)

Jan Crouch: “Not with God.”

Kenneth Copeland: “. . . the fact. No, I’m not sore at God at all and I don’t think He’s sore at me . . . I haven’t done anything to Him.”

Paul Crouch: “. . . The critics say God is God, He doesn’t have to have faith; He doesn’t exercise faith. He doesn’t use faith. He’s God. He’s the object of faith.”

Kenneth Copeland: ” . . . Wait a minute, what does that mean? Object of faith. I don’t know what that means.”

Jan Crouch: “I don’t either.”

(End discussion.)

The definition of biblical faith has no kinship to this “Force of Faith” espoused by Copeland, and apparently Paul and Jan Crouch. In the above statement by Kenneth Copeland, God is said to use faith just like Copeland uses faith. Faith ceases to be the lofty and eternal truth forever settled in the Heavens and established by an eternal God that is Himself the object of our faith. It becomes a formula or a New Age force that is a pagan idea, clearly kin to the many teachings of the occult. (Source)

Does the Bible teach that faith is a force?  No!  Yet the Crouches fail to challenge Copeland on his dangerous teaching.  In fact, Paul Crouch once looked into the camera and said in his friend’s defense, “If you want to criticize Ken Copeland for his preaching on faith, or Dad Hagin get out of my life! I don’t even want to talk to you or hear you. I don’t want to see your ugly face. Get out of my face, in Jesus’ name.”

Visitors to CP think the site is the epitome of Christian orthodoxy, that people of faith can trust CP to keep them informed. Yet contributing writer Anugrah Kumar didn’t apprise readers about TBN’s promotion of some pretty dangerous teaching.

Bible believing Christians familiar with the power couple’s warped theology consider them wolves in sheep’s clothing.  Which begs the question:  Why did an Internet publication that calls itself Christian fail to share this not so small detail in a big story?  Jesus himself addressed the wolf infestation He faced head on:

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. (Mat 7:15-17)

Paul and Jan Crouch produced rotten fruit! What did Jesus say would happen to diseased trees?  (Mat 7:18, 19)

Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. (Mat 7:19, 20)

Trouble In Paradise

Jackie Alnor of Scattered Sheep Report has been following the Crouches and TBN for decades. When she heard the news of Jan’s demise she wrote a piece entitled, “The True Legacy of Jan Crouch.” In it she reminds us that:

Jan died with 14 lawsuits pending against her whistle-blower granddaughter, Brittany Crouch Koper, costing TBN donors multiple millions of dollars.

Jan had not spoken to her granddaughter since she was fired as the Chief Financial Officer of TBN in 2011 for insisting that the Crouches follow the laws governing the use of donor money and not siphon it off to boost Matt Crouch’s secular movie directing ambitions, among other reported wastes for the Crouches to live extravagantly.

Alnor concludes:

Paul & Jan Crouch’s legacy must not go down in history all white-washed and controlled by million $ lawyers. The truth is ugly but must be told — if the LORD tarries, it must be known from here on that TBN was/is the biggest carrier of apostasy in all of church history. (Read Jackie’s full report here)

Why did the reporter neglect to inform readers about legitimate lawsuits? Moreover, why would a Christian publication fail to mention that the Crouches were often criticized, and rightly so, for being the “biggest carrier of apostasy in all of church history”?

It’s no secret that TBN props up a plethora of false prophets who spread heresy all over the globe.  TBN promotes the health and wealth prosperity gospel…NAR/dominionismPurpose DrivenismEmergentContemplative prayer…Christian Mysticism…New Age/New Thought and everything else under the sun.  In a word, syncretism.

TBN hosts false teachers such as Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, T. D. Jakes, Joseph Prince, Kim Clement, Steven Furtick, Joyce Meyer, Brian Houston,Christine Caine, James Robison, Robert Morris, Paula White, John Avanzini, Jesse Duplantis, Frederick Price, Creflo Dollar, Morris Cerullo, Paul Yonggi Cho, Marilyn Hickey, Jerry Savelle, John Hagee, Rod Parsley, Sid Roth, C. Peter Wagner, Cindy Jacobs,Chuck Pierce, Reinhard Bonnke…and the list goes on and on.

Many people have expressed their concern and displeasure when they see evangelical celebrities thought to be theologically solid appear on TBN.  A few examples of those who have done this for whatever reason are Franklin Graham, Kirk Cameron, David Jeremiah, Ray Comfort, Beth Moore, Max Lucado and Anne Graham Lotz.

Leaders Who Fail To Lead

Quick digression.  While doing research for this article, I had no choice but to visit CP several times.  On one of those sojourns I noticed a blog post by Dr. Michael Brown at the top of the page.  Dr. Brown is a conservative Messianic Jew, whose resume includes all sorts of accomplishments and degrees, including a Ph. D from New York University.  Brown is a respected charismatic leader and Bible scholar.  His desire is to be taken seriously, and for the most part he is.  Ironically, on CP’s homepage, just a few doors down in the opinion section under “Living” I noticed a guest column by Joyce Meyer.  Meyer is a notorious false teacher so the heading should be “Dying” for the reason that her unbiblical theology leads to death.  So, why would a Bible scholar who grasps the meaning of heresy better than most want his column carried by a so-called Christian blog that features articles written by wolves in sheep’s clothing?  Remember, brethren, this is the “Christian” Post.  Richard Land, CP’s executive editor, served as president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission which is the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention until he was forced to resign.  Land is a conservative Baptist!  He, too, knows perfectly well that the prosperity gospel is a heresy that’s spreading.  Yet he seemingly has no problem providing a platform for Faith teachers to promote their rotten fruit!  Where’s the discernment?  Where was it in 2013 when “Papa” Paul Crouch died?  CP’s Anugrah Kumar wrote a tribute to him, quoting several Christian luminaries:

“Praise to God for this man of faith,” tweeted Lucado, bestselling author and writer and preacher at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. Crouch “has passed into eternal joy,” he said.

“‏We celebrate Dr. Paul Crouch’s good & faithful work on earthMay we all leave such a legacy for the Kingdom,” wrote Creflo Dollar, founder and senior pastor of World Changers Church International, on Twitter.

May we all not leave such a legacy for the Kingdom, or we could find ourselves in the Kingdom of Hell.

Of course Paul’s pal Heretic Hinn had to add his 2 cents:

On this day of his glorious home-going, please reflect upon the tremendous impact of this man’s extraordinary life,” reads a tweet by Pastor Hinn from Benny Hinn Ministries. (Source)

A glowing tribute by Christian Post – for a ravenous wolf!

Had enough?

I have.  So back to the subject at hand, Janice Crouch.  From what we know to be true about her, she has passed from this life to a place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. Luke 13:28    I do understand there is always the possibility she repented of her sins and came to faith in the true Jesus Christ before she died.  If this was the case, by God’s grace, she is in heaven.

I’ll close with a quote from Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones:

Heresies always result from the wiles of the devil, the efforts of the principalities and powers.  Are your eyes open to it?  Do you realize the relevance of all this to you as a member of the Christian Church?  Are you being carried away by this loose, general, sentimental talk?  God forbid that any of us should ever say that it matters not what you believe as long as you are a Christian.  May God open our eyes, and having given us to see the truth, then enable us “to be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might.”  “Take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  (H/T Glenn Chatfield)

Bethel Redding’s Courtship with Belial

Tags

, , , , ,

In our previous article, “The Latest Unholy Alliance – Hillsong and Bethel”, we linked to an upcoming Bethel event, “OpenHeavens” with Brian Houston as a keynote speaker.

The “unholy alliance” continues as Bethel embarks on its own courtship with the Pope.

Tony Miano writes,

Bethel Redding’s Courtship with Belial

Kris Vallotton, second in command of the Bethel Redding cult, recently met Pope Francis--an antichrist.Kris Vallotton, second in command of the Bethel Redding cult, recently met Pope Francis–an antichrist.

I have well-documented the unbiblical, blasphemous beliefs and practices of a group I believe is a cult–Bethel Redding. My research and documentation includes information about Bethel’s second-in-command,Kris Vallotton. Today, Vallotton met Pope Francis–head of the apostate Roman Catholic Church and an antichrist. As I write this article, Vallotton’s Facebook photo with the pope has 240 shares, 290 comments, and over 5,700 reactions. Vallotton’s remarks, along with many of the comments attached to the photo, serve as examples of Bethel Redding’s courtship with Belial.

Who is Belial?

The word/name “Belial” appears in only verse in the Bible–2 Corinthians 6:15.

“What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?”

So, who or what is “Belial?”

I found the following explanation in Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers to be rather fascinating:

“The passage is remarkable as being the only occurrence of the name in the New Testament, all the more so because it does not appear in the Greek version of the Old. The Hebrew word signifies ‘vileness, worthlessness;’ and the ‘sons of Belial’ (as in Deuteronomy 13:13; 1 Samuel 2:12; 1 Samuel 25:17) were therefore the worthless and the vile. The English version, following the Vulgate, translates the phrase as though Belial were a proper name, and this has led to the current belief, as shown in Milton’s poems, that it was the name of a demon or fallen angel, the representative of impurity—

‘Belial came last, than whom a spirit more lewd,

Fell not from heaven, or more gross to love

Vice for itself.’—Paradise Lost, i. 490.

‘Belial, the dissolutest spirit that fell,

The sensualest, and, after Asmodai,

The fleshliest incubus.’—Paradise Regained, ii. 204.

“St. Paul’s use of the word would seem to imply that some such belief was floating among the Jews in his time. A strange legend, which possibly had a Jewish origin (it is referred to certain necromantici), is found in an obscure and forgotten book (Wierus: Pseudo-Monarchia Dæmonum), to the effect that Solomon was led by a certain woman to bow before the image of Belial, who is represented as worshipped by the Babylonians. Of that worship there is no trace in history; and Milton seems to have recognised this—

‘To him no temple stood

Nor altar smoked.’

“But if the name had gathered these associations round it, we can understand St. Paul’s using it as representing, or, as it were, personifying, the whole system of impure cultus that prevailed in the worship of Aphrodite at Corinth.”

In his work, Notes on the Bible, Albert Barnes explains the term “Belial” this way:

“Belial – Βελίαλ Belial or Βελίαρ Beliar, as as it is found in some of the late editions. The form Beliar is Syriac. The Hebrew word בּליּצל beliya‛al means literally without profit; worthlessness; wickedness. It is here evidently applied to Satan. The Syriac translates it ‘Satan.’ The idea is, that the persons to whom Paul referred, the pagan, wicked, unbelieving world, were governed by the principles of Satan, and were ‘taken captive by him at his will’ (2 Timothy 2:26 compare John 8:44), and that Christians should be separate from the wicked world, as Christ was separate from all the feelings, purposes, and plans of Satan. He had no participation in them; he formed no union with them; and so it should be with the followers of the one in relation to the followers of the other.”

Whether Belial is a demonic entity or a type of person, followers of Christ are to never engage in any spiritual enterprise (prayer, worship, ministry, etc.) with unbelievers, with practitioners of false religions–with Belial, with those who are of their father, the devil.

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

‘I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,
and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty’” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

Vallotton professes to be a Christian, yet he lauds the leader and practitioner of a false religion. He does this with seemingly nary a care for the billion lost souls in Roman Catholicism and without a care for the soul of a lost old man he would call “brother.” Why the fascination with Francis?

Vallotton’s Fascination with Francis

026_KVM_PopeVallotton makes no secret about his man-crush on the pope. “I had the privilege of meeting Pope Francis today with some other pastors. He is really a great man. I love him a ton!” This is how Vallotton captioned his photo of his meeting with the pope.

A great man? How can any professing Christian refer to the present leading antichrist in the world as a “great man?” And how exactly does Vallotton define a “great man,” if the pope (the leader of an apostate religion that spiritually [and sometimes physically] abuses, enslaves, coerces, extorts, and manipulates more than a billion people) as his example?

Earlier this year, Vallotton did a “blog swap” with Lisa Bevere. Lisa is married to John Bevere–the man who takes credit for giving the New Apostolic Reformation its name in 1994 and for being the apostate and blasphemous movement’s “intellectual godfather.”

Earlier this year, writing on Lisa Bevere’s blog, Vallotton penned an article titled Women Leaders in the Church. Vallotton begins the article as follows:

“In a recent interview with America Magazine, the Pope spoke of his concern for women to find their proper role in the Church. He said, ‘Women are asking deep questions that must be addressed. The Church cannot be herself without the woman and her role.’

“I agree with the Pope. I have an amazing wife, two daughters, a daughter-in-law and three granddaughters that wake up every day to a world of discrimination simply because of their gender. But the most troubling aspect of this oppression is that the Church is often found leading it! Many believers have developed a theology that proactively uses the Bible to disqualify women from the most formidable roles of leadership, especially in the Church. I am appalled by the number of Christian leaders who are convinced that women are not as qualified, called, and/or gifted to lead as men are.”

Vallotton, a feminist and an egalitarian, doesn’t even try to hide his cards. He lacks the wisdom and discernment to differentiate between the Roman Catholic Church and the true Church–the Bride of Christ. He lacks the wisdom and discernment to differentiate between a Christian and an antichrist. He sees the pope as a spiritual brother, a “great man” who he “loves a ton.” Of course it’s only my opinion, but I believe the reason is that both Vallotton and Pope Francis are of the same spiritual father–the devil (John 8:44).

Some NAR, Bethel Redding, and Vallotton apologists will no doubt cry foul (they do every time I dare to touch who they believe is one of the Lord’s “anointed”). They will accuse me of faulting Vallotton for “loving” the pope. They will accuse me of not loving the pope. It’s not true. I don’t believe Vallotton is capable of loving the pope with a love that matters–the kind of love that would call the pope to repent and believe the gospel.

Vallotton’s Lost Sheep Followers of Belial

As disturbing as Vallotton’s man-crush on the pope is, the comments of Vallotton’s lost sheep followers of Belial are just as bad–if not worse. Here are a few low-lights:

“I’m glad you love him [the pope]. So do I ..He has such a heart for the Lord.”

And…..

“We are one in the spirit
We are one in the Lord
And we pray that our unity
May one day be restored.

“We just sang that at Azusa. Look at us now!”

And…..

“Please tell me you gave Him a word. That would be incredible to honor him that way. Awesome to see this.”

And…..

“Not a false teacher at all. Some would toss those claims towards Bethel as well. Just because you read your bible differently, doesn’t make it false… Careful how tight you hold water/theologies. The tighter you grip the more you loose.”

And…..

“Can’t we just agree that this was an historic moment without offering our opinions” (Beni Johnson, wife of Bill Johnson–leader of the Bethel Redding cult).

It’s the blind leading the blind. It’s a wolf leading deceived sheep (or goats). These quotes are heartbreaking examples of people who may very-well one day hear Jesus say:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness’” (Matthew 7:21-23).

Closing Thoughts

Kris Vallotton has once again shown himself to be a friend of Belial and not a follower of Christ. Vallotton lacks the wisdom and discernment to recognize Pope Francis as an antichrist, likely for the same reason a billion Roman Catholics fail to do so. He is lost and needs to repent and come to faith in Jesus Christ. I hope and pray he does while God has given him time.

If after reading this article you’ve come to realize that Bethel Redding and Kris Vallotton have led you astray, if after reading this you are questioning what you believe, please take the time to read Our Message.
