I have read a majority of his books and compared them with the Word. I have heard and read more unbelief and false teaching while sitting in the pews of mainline churches, and even on this forum, than I have in his work.
I have also read much of the “heresy hunters” work that contorts and misquotes him with abandon. And frankly, I am shocked that there are “ministries” who feel “called” to do nothing to edify the Body, instead they only attack ministers and ministries. I wonder who called them, and you, to this great task?
God does not need help to expose heretics and false prophets. Of that, I am quite certain.
I AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY. I've found his stuff the same.
And, I've made a similar assessment of the heresy hunters. Their arrogance and prissiness are nauseating and stink to low hell.
My ministry work exposes the heresies of Mormonism and other pseudo Christian cults. In that area I have become familiar with the subtle rewording and changes in context used by such groups. I see similar things in much of Copeland’s (and some other televangelists) work.
Just because something sounds biblical or even quotes Scripture doesn’t make it doctrinally sound. Mormonism is strong proof of that.
God uses people like me in exposing heresies. He uses His followers. Does He NEED me? No. Does He USE me for His purposes? Yes. And not just me.
