It is not my nature to publicly call out individuals who claim fellowship with Christ, but teach error. However, if the matter is serious enough, such a method becomes necessary. In the years since I responded to the call to surrender to Jesus, I have seen the likes of Todd Bentley and Benny Hinn rise to greater acclaim by those who are easily mislead, including friends and family. I have seen the same fall for those teachers who promise great wealth and luxuries as if we were meant for such a life. With the advent of communication technology and mass media, these false teachers, heretics, and apostates all have the luxury of reaching out to millions with relative ease and when they are opposed they raise large numbers of hostile and aggressive followers to match their own aggression and hostility.
Recently, my brother in Christ, Tom, posted a blog against the website www.thepathoftruth.com, for their embrace of a heresy that denies, among other things, the doctrine of the Trinity (see the blog here). It was not long after the release of this post that he received a response from a couple of leaders from the aforementioned site. Confronting them brought quickly brought about hostility and aggressiveness, which was expressed through name-calling and belittling – not a huge deal for us because we deal with it as a part of obedience to Christ, of course, but it is the antithesis of what the Christ-follower is expected to do. The comments of Tom’s post are available to everyone and I invite you to read through them.
Throughout the correspondence, Paul, the representative from the aforementioned site, constantly drew reference to his site as an authoritative resource to compliment and back the Scripture, which is chocked full of other errors. Needless to say, they have my full attention. I refuse to allow falsehood to go unanswered. From this point, until I am content with the extent, I will be reading through each of their writings under the fine-toothed comb of the Scripture and I will offer a scriptural response. Until then.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo
