A good subtitle for this article might be "Practice What You Preach!" There is no doubt that God can and does heal people today. But the false doctrines of the Word-Faith Movement about "declaring" healing, "name-it-and-claim-it", etc. have been proven to be lies by the very people who sell this deceit. If you don't know about where these famous "faith healers" go when they need healing, you may be surprised. Why couldn't they heal themselves when they purported to be able to heal others by virtue of their superior faith? What happened to the extraordinary faith they claimed to have, enough faith to heal and be healed? Since they are the ones who taught that all you have to do is claim the healing that is in the Atonement (Is. 53:5) why did they not do so? Don't their deaths prove that what they were preaching was a lie and pragmatic witchcraft rather than biblical relality?

by Warren B. Smith, 12/9/15 Traditional Christian believers frequently mention the analogy of the frog that is so slowly and gradually boiled in a kettle of water that it dies before ever realizing what is going on. Yet many believers fail to realize that the very same thing is happening to them as they tell that story. How else do you explain the rapid rise of the "new gospel" movement with hardly a word of concern within the Church about what's been happening? As "new gospel" advocates continue to publish bestselling books and flock to the airwaves in ever-increasing numbers to advance their cause, there is a strange silence within Christianity. Does the Church have any idea what is going on?
Reviewed by Mike Oppenheimer, 12/10/15 Osteen's new book has reached the pinnacle of audacity as he uses this phrase he is doing exactly what we are warned against, for he is using I Am, God's covenant name for the betterment of self. Osteen is teaching this as a decree for self change. Click here to read this book review!
"How long you simple ones will you love simplicity?" Proverbs 1 I hope I am wrong but I don't think the fall of Todd Bentley will result in the repentance of very many of his followers and enablers. It should. There is a lot of guilt and anguish to go around. It is just as much of a sin to prop up a false prophet as it is to be one (see Jeremiah 5:31). Shouldn't those "spiritual leaders" who publically endorsed his ministry with the laying on of hands and much prophetic utterance, publically admit that they and their movement were wrong? Should there not be any soul searching among them, any anguish and zeal to right things? Che Ahn, Bill Johnson, Rick Joyner, John Arnott, Peter and Doris Wagner, Sharon Stone and Stacy Campbell were summoned to this "prophetic alignment" and proclaimed great things.
