Narpocrite – a type of narcissist so caught up in their own self aggrandisement that they spout advice or teaching that contradicts their own teaching, character or lifestyle.
Word origin: Merging of “narcissist” and “hypocrite”. [Source]
Chris Rosebrough recently reviewed a message by pastrix Christine Caine at the whacky, gugglionic and dangerous Passion 2016 conference. He does a solid job exposing her lies, bible twisting, narpocrisy and her condemning, legalistic message. Early on in the episode, Chris Rosebrough reviewed Louie Giglio endorsing Caine’s trainwreck of a sermon.
Here is the sermon review:

We encourage listeners to transcribe any part of Christine Caine’s sermon here so we can alert people to her dangerous teachings.
its not surprising C. Caine was at Passion Conference. Because these phoney men rely on each other for support.
Furtick & Groeschel do their own impression of Jonathan & David. Break out the kleenex, I needed to, this good ooey-gooey example of goat-pastor to goat-pastor emotion was so heartwarming….. Furtick has also bowed-down to do goat-pastor-worship of TD Jakes.
I wouldnt trust A SINGLE ONE of these Hillsong / Passion circuit speaker as far as I can throw a bowling ball. Rick Warren’s always does fellow-goat-pastor backscratching (Ref: Warren’s “Top 100 Pastors to Follow” or his “Top 10 Fittest Christian Leaders”).
These self-promotion name-dropper conference gurus are nothing but a joke. Solution is simple: DON’T ATTEND. Because conference goers pay to hear a little truth mixed in with LOTS AND LOTS OF LIES.
To be clear, this “financial expert”, Robert Morris, is a college dropout. He did not write The Blessed Life. He spent a couple days speaking into a tape recorder. Then a professional ghostwriter wrote the book for him. ALL of his books have been professionally ghost written.
Morris used tens of million in his church’s tithes to buy Jack Hayford’s Church of Foursquare – The King’s University (TKU) and then awarded himself an honorary doctor of letters. He relabeled it a Doctorate in Literature and makes the students call him Dr Morris. Robert’s total college career consists of two semesters at East Texas Baptist University. He has no theological or seminary background. He has no financial background either. He claims to be a “math whiz” but on 1-16-16 he taught that 5 to the 10th power was 50. That was not a misstatement, as he said it twice. The self-proclaimed math whiz missed by 9,765,575.
Morris uses the tithes he collects off this spiritual extortion to maintain his three luxury homes – a mansion in one of the wealthiest areas of North Texas, a prestigious lake home with a giant boat with built-in jet skis (which he classifies as “ministry tools”) and a large private hunting lodge with a private lake.
His staff will be taking a 15 day mission trip this June to the French Riviera in peak tourist season. This is the home of the most luxurious resorts, casinos and restaurants in the world. European royalty vacation there. Between shopping and dining and strolling topless beaches they are also attending the EURO Tournament – where tickets are almost impossible to come by. As for the “mission” part of the trip they will be participating briefly in a vague yet undefined “community project”. One can only imagine what that might be. Two weeks later they are off to Berlin for another 15 day “mission” trip, to go castle hopping and touring the sites in horse drawn carriages while again staying in the finest hotels. Morris’ wife takes her friends, co-workers and relatives on an all expense paid Caribbean Cruise each autumn, where they spend their time shopping and dining and hanging out in casinos and bars with their own personal mixologist. Tithers pay for this all.
This is modern day Babylon folks and if your church sends their pastors to Gateway’s giant Pastor’s Conference or teaches or sells Morris’ The Blessed Life tithing heresy, you need to get out now. Tell a friend. This man is bad news. You can read more about him on Warren Throckmorton’s blog http://www.patheos.com/blogs/warrenthrockmorton/?s=robert%20morris&repeat=w3tc
What about all the screaming that goes on when preachers like Christine Caine speaks? What’s that about? You feel you’re being verbally bashed over the head with a bit of 4 x 2. You feel so beaten down with performance expectations.
All law, no gospel.
Every year Christine Caine’s Passion Conference message places that same burden of legalism on the young people attending. We’re shocked that John Piper hasn’t “carpeted” her over this, but even more shocked that he’s now willing to share the pulpit with this “impastor” when he clearly has stated in the past “that women should not preach in the local church, even under the authority of the elders, nor should they regularly teach Sunday School to a mixed audience. I will argue here, over against Wilson, that Piper is right, and his answer is well stated.”
Galataians 1:6-8 “I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!…..”
“but even more shocked that he’s now willing to share the pulpit with this impastor”
Piper’s making a habit of sharing the stage endorsing all kinds of weird stuff these days. The chap seems to be drawn toward apostasy. He shared the stage with Beth Moore while they both endorsed lectio divina at Passion 2012. And he’s gotten a little too buddy-buddy with Rick Warren too.
Sam, Jesus directed his most scathing remarks for the Pharisees/false teachers.
In particular, those who pray lofty prayers in public to be seen by men.
YouTube any of JP’s sermons and watch him pray.
The guy has made an art out of it.
So very true. David Platt is another uber-self-righteous one I would also place in the same lofty category as Piper, David Platt grates on my nerves pretty bad and very often.
Yeah agreed. Gotta be careful with these guys. They seem to have solid teaching but upon closer inspection it’s all works righteousness. His book radical lines the shelves of Catholics I know.
Red flag right there.
Some Christians Ive known for years are in churches that have chosen tostudy Radical as a book to teach from. It grieves me my favorite old pastor is in one of those churches. Why would any church set down the Bible and pick up Radical? Just doesnt make sense, but theyre doing it. It grieves me. I have long considered David Platt to be a snake.
How about this though? There is drunken like behaviour here.
Acts 2:14-21 is perhaps the most famous scripture supporting apparent drunkenness as a physical manifestation of the presence of the Holy Spirit saying:
“But Peter, standing up with the Eleven, lifted up his voice and said to them, Men, Jews, and all who dwell at Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to my words.
For these are not drunk as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day.
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel:
“And it shall be in the last days, says God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And in those days I will pour out My Spirit upon My slaves and My slave women, and they shall prophesy.
And I will give wonders in the heaven above, and miracles on the earth below, blood and fire and vapour of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and glorious Day of the Lord. And it shall be that everyone who shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Why didn’t you give the previous verses (that reveal that the tongues they were speaking in were actual *languages? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+2%3A1-21&version=KJV
It was MOCKERS who said that the REAL tongues (or languages) speakers were drunk. The OBJECTIVE observers said the apostles were praising God in the OBSERVERS’ own native languages.
Fair enough but what about this:
“I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh”
“And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.”
Sounds pretty “experience and feeling based” to me…..
Thinker you might be missing out on the “party”.
Acts 2:15-17 “For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel: ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh.’”
Keep looking at the context Fred.
Peter is connecting Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh”, with the Holy Spirit’s coming and the start of the church.
The charismatic view of “experience and feelings” has deceived countless 1000’s with Satan putting a “veil” between their feelings, experiences and God’s rightly divided Word. And our hearts deceive us as God’s Word reminds us.
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?”
Fred that passage is one that Charismatics and non-Charismatics are at polar opposites. Charismatics claim that prophecy applies to ALL Christians from all time periods. Non-Charismatics claim that prophecy was fulfilled on that Day of Pentecost, nearly 2000 years ago.
Linguists have shown Charismatics’ tongue speaking is mere babble. http://frame-poythress.org/linguistic-and-sociological-analyses-of-modern-tongues-speaking-their-contributions-and-limitations/
Charismatics make a loophole via claiming their babble are heavenly languages.
Cessationist viewpoint from a good Christian library website: http://www.davidcox.com.mx/library/31.04.12a_speaking_in_tongues.htm
“Thinker you might be missing out on the “party”.
Many years ago while attending a non-denominational church I was once was a firm believer in tongues, having seen so many other Christian demonstrate what appeared to be speaking in tongues PLUS speaking in tongues myself.
Over time the church emphasized experiences more (tongues and “slaying in the Spirit”) and more time in singing worship songs (very gifted musicians too) and spent less and less time on preaching. The pastor didn’t spend as much time on preaching any more- why bother when people *appeared* to have been touched by God already? They became just like Hillsong is now.
A recent sermon “to speak in tongues” by J.D. Hall http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=2616142398
these preachers today are causing so much damage, because they wont stand up and speak out the word of truth.
as a resault of this there will be many converts but most of them will not be saved. unrepentant sinners.
the bible makes it so clear.
1 timothy 6:5
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
2 timothy 3:5
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
