I do believe that the Bible TELLS us to call out false teachers/prophets by name! Just sayin’, Mr. Crouch.

He is absolutely right about Rick Warren & Schuler.

They are disgusting Islamist promoters!

There’s something far more nefarious at work that mere charlatanism.

This is the syncretist push toward a one world religion (under the Antichrist).

TBN has earned a serious boycott. Any preachers pimping “Chrislam” or any variation of the same should be blacklisted from airwaves across America.

Islam is and until Jesus returns, will be the sworn enemy of Christianity so I’m throwing in with Jack Van Impe.

All these other so called righteous men that plead for tolerance and understanding can go sit down and pee as far as I’m concerned.

I am actually appalled as I look around me and see the evil people. I have a neighbor I know is a very serious Christian, but I am going to have to start a list of genuine people who are following God’s plan for life, marriage and children. Most people are not honest, for one and regard honest people as idiots. I am a Christian looking to live my life according to God’s teachings, but it is getting lonely out there and a challenge to find real Christians and not just those who give lip service to it or who go along to get along.

I agree with you ..He scared the pants off the two people that are turning their Church into Muslim religion.. I never listened to either one of those men because I did not trust them..People wake up do not go to any of these so called Churches they are evil..

Jack Van Impe is right and they are not going to stand for it,these criminals have got to go they are not Christian they are into it for the money..

Van Impe was right. You can’t covert with evil and Islam is evil. There is no point in “interfaith” meetings with Mohammedans; both Christianity and democracy are diametrically opposed to Islam and there is no way to get around that FACT

Persecution of Christians is not going to come from the left, but from within those calling themselves “Christians”.

We are too “narrow minded”, you know, to believe in the authority and inspiration of the Bible and the exclusivity of Christ’s sacrifice,

and we are “dangerous” because we prevent all these religions from “coming together”.

I will tell you, watching Jack and Rexella Van Impe will get you more Bible teaching than any other show on TBN.

When I was single and had time, I would sit and watch with amazement. My niece-in-law records and looks up all the scripture they quote.

They are better off without TBN.

Too bad . . . Van Impe is a very knowledgeable Biblical scholar. We are in the process of being turned into an islamic culture . . .

I was just mentioning the fact that Jack Van Impe is dead, my first post I mention that I thought he was dead, I wasn't sure though. After posting I confirmed he was dead by browsing the internet a little. Basically he is dead, a dead man can not continue his show from the grave. A dead man can not pay his bills. So basically TBN and any other TV station is/or was going to pull the plug eventually if nobody is paying the Bills.

My mentioning anything about Jack or TBN is not an endorsement of Jack or TBN, I did not watch his show or TBN TV station. I could care less about Jack, and I also could care less about TBN, I just basically want to mention that Jack is dead now, I do not believe in his Dispensationalism Theology or any one elses Dispensational theology, I just knew about him and I'm just stating a fact that he is dead.

Rick Warren makes me cringe. His “Purpose Driven Life” was full of prevarications and twists.

Don't assume that because they can quote a lot of scripture this has anything to do with the reliability of their conclusions. Said as someone who first became acquainted with Jack Van Impe since the early 1970s (and even watched him play his accordion at my school's founder's day banquet).

Back in 1970, my mother, and youngest brother gaveme 2 RPMs.
One was Jack Van Impe. It was a great recording, I used in in our youth ministry, and in Sunday School.

I was impressed that he had memorized the whole New Testament, and large portions of the Old Testament.

The Jack Van Impe Ministry had a statement of faith I loved; one statement I continue to use:

“The only infallible interpretation of Scripture of Scripture; is Scripture itself.”

I support Jack Van Impe 100%. Crouch, with his silver lame jackets gold-leaf furniture, has always turned me off.

Rick Warren, the Post-Modern Pope, is an acolyte of Peter Drucker who chose and groomed him to move Total Quality Control, Drucker's totalitarian method for controlling PEOPLE, into Christianity. Warren has slavishly followed his master's orders.

IMHO, Warren cares less about Jesus and more about what every progressive cares about: Power and Control.

My Master will ultimately defeat all of these evil machinations and establish His kingdom while seated on the throne of David.

That’s definitely true. Any other attempt to “filter” or “interpret” or take the Bible a la carte is putting your own wisdom above the authority of the Bible.

It’s all a matter of recognizing the concept of “Ultimate Authority”. The Bible is the Ultimate Authority as the Word of God. When a human attempts to “take or leave” parts as he believes to be right or wrong, then he is putting his own wisdom/reason in the position of “Ultimate Authority”.

No he is not alive he is dead, do a search on his name and you will get several web sites that mention he is dead, that he has died. Even his own web site has admitted he is dead. They are rebroadcasting his old shows as long as they can get away with it. It is about keeping the old cash cow rolling whether it is the TV stations wanting to make money off of his shows or his organization wanting to keep the cash cow rolling as long as they can. The show is a great cash cow for every body involved. I'm not condemning the practice, but I don't endorse the practice of hiding the fact that he has died, some have mentioned the fact that he has died, but they have done it more in a whisper then in a big announcement.

Are you talking about the websites that also call Van Impe "a disgusting hate monger?"

Give us a link to what you believe is the official Van Impe website.

Churches today are full of 'fake' Christians. I can rattle off a number of prominent names in our church of folks who appear to be model Christians yet act in ways that dishonor Jesus Christ and his teachings. It saddens me, because that's not what the ministry of Jesus Christ was all about.

I looked and look and looked and as you say it was the liberal web sites atheist..I think it was a ploy to make people stop watching his show..I watched the show were he laughed and said the humors about me being dead are not true I can't Imagine why anyone would say a thing like that unless they are afraid people are taking him seriously which I do..Everything he says is true about what is happening in this country and the world..

I caught their show recently (about a week ago) and Jack Van Impe mentioned extremely recent events (had occurred within the last week). Maybe “they” are using CGI technology to hide his death (Oh Noes). By the way, do I need a sarc tag?

For some odd reason, ReformedBeckite, after expending all that effort to convince us of “The Truth,” has gone silent.

Perhaps “they” got to ReformedBeckite, too!

Ok my bad the web site I mentioned doesn't appear to be his official website. The web site I mention is :
http://www.jackvanimpe.ca/
I don't know whether this web site is any way associated with his ministry, it appears it isn't and from looking at some of the links on that website with out clicking them it appears it might be a spoof web site on Jack Van Impe.

As far as his death goes a lot of web sites are saying he is dead and his death was ?Jan 11. I don't want to argue whether he is dead or alive on FR all day, All I can say is my information comes from a Google search of "Jack Van Impe dead" below is a link to that search.
http://www.google.com/search?q=jack+van+impe+dead&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=ie7&rlz=1I7GGLD_en

I found this out a few weeks ago, my old neighbor and me are in a disagreement. He believes that Obama is going to get elected and that it is a done deal and he uses the black vote as his agruement. I don't buy it, I don't think he will ever tell me the whole truth why he believes this, I think he believes Obama will get elected because he heard Jack Van Impe say so on his TV show, so to confirm my suspensions I went onto the web to see if I could find anything that would prove my theory that Jack Van Impe did say something to the effect that Obama would get reelected. I didn't find anything but I did find a few web sites that mention Jack had died, that is how I have come about in my knowledge of Jack death whether it is true or not, and I have posted two links for other to look at and judge for themselves. In the mean while I will probably not come back to this thread to make any more comments or to defend my self as I have more important things to do.

IMHO, Warren is not about Power & Control. His problem is that he cares too much about being liked and accepted by the Left, which results in his watering down the Gospel.

I’ve seen the program recently. He spoke of events which had happened within the past several days. Pretty good for a dead guy.

You might be disappointed that Van Impe’s still alive; but don’t go away mad. Just go away.

Strange I thought that for some reason ReformedBeckite was trying to really convince us of a death that did not happen and someone put him/or her up to it..I don't watch Van Impi on a regular bases but do watch often enough to catch the show where he said he was not dead..

Why do you care so much about the deceased Mr. Van Impe (God rest his soul) and TBN?

I’m not concerned, as he is at peace, and with his maker now.

I could NOT care less about TBN, however. Why the deep concern?
