By the stripes of Jesus I was healed. That is my foundation. I give with ten percent of what God gives to me. I add offerings because the Word of God tells me to. When a person gives, Jesus said in Luke 6:38 it shall be given back according to what you give, Jesus sees to it. If you give you will get back more than you give but it must be in with a willing and a cheerful heart. If you do not want to give to these mininstries than give somewhere else. But, but give. If you hold back because you think some are con artists check your own heart. It just might be you that is looking for an excuse not to give.

Yesterday, I was watching Word Of Faith Teacher/Preacher Tony Kemp on television.

He said IT WAS NOT A VISION, but an Angel actualy took him to Heaven where he saw God sitting on His Throne, and Christ sitting on God's right side.

Is what Tony Kemp said inline with what is written in 2 Peter 2:3, and in direct contradiction of what is written in John 6:44-46?

Rob, that's why only those who KNOW God's WORD can have any hope of breaking away. This God's anointed thing is so dangerous. These evil people also keep them scaed by saying if anyone QUESTIONS THEM, they have sinned against the Holy Spirit. It's really really sad.

I remember hearing Paula White preaching during easter year 2000, that they were asking for a PASSOVER OFFERING, and all who gave $2000 dollars God would immediately dispatch 2 Angels to them using OT scripture ....can you believe people actually BELIEVED this garbage? 100% Profit!!!

Kathr, myself along with others tried to warn my sister to no avail.

Whenever we tried to share the truth with my sister concerning these people she always says "touch not God's anointed ones".

These people are not drawing people to Christ, but are drawing people unto themselves and away from Christ.

These people are literally placed on a pedistal and worshipped.

They all remind me of Jim Jones and are very dangerous.

Rob, I'm sorry to hear what happened to your sister. YES these people are definitely cought in the snare of satan.

Our offerings go to our local churches we are members of, not these schisters trafficking in the Gospel taking advantage of gullable people who never read their bibles and just take these peoples word for the WORD.

And by the way, Benny Hinn testifies he got his HS anointing standing over the grave of DEAD Amy McPherson. It's blatent witchcraft!

///Is it possible for people to be "BRAINWASHED" by the WOF to the point of no return and becoming totally sensless?
---Rob on 8/11/10 //

Nothing is impossible with God.

I was caught up in the blenderized gospel of traditional church, until God opened my understanding, to the fact that He had written a complete book and I could read it for myself

I have a sister who for countless years has been caught up in the FALSE TEACHINGS of the Word of Faith Movement.

Through all these years she has sent her money to these people with the promise she would receive her harvest in return, which she has never received.

My sister lost her home, because instead of paying her mortgage she would send these people the money.

They always say people have not received their harvest because of their lack of faith, or it is not their season. They tell people they need to continue watering their seed (sending money) until their harvest comes.

Is it possible for people to be "BRAINWASHED" by the WOF to the point of no return and becoming totally sensless?
---Rob on 8/11/10

I must admit that I have a real problem>>>It is very difficult to determine who is of God and who isn't. God has actually told me at times. But, for the most part I do have a problem in this. Hallelujah. I like pastor Hagar and Joyce M., Pat Roberson. whom I know are from God.

Robyn, have you read what is written in Matthew Chapter 24?


Robyn, doesn't what Benny Hinn said go against what is written in Matthew Chapter 24:36?

Robyn, everyone knows that Jesus did not make a personal and physical appearance on stage with Benny Hinn.

Robyn, what does this make Benny Hinn. A servant of God, or a servant of Satan? 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.
---Rob on 8/10/10

Good Question Rob. WOF teachers believe they are little Gods. They fail to realize our faith is not in faith but in a PERSON. If God tells me to lay hands on someone and He will heal them...then I am obeying by faith what He asked me to do in that particular moment.

However many believe faith is a power we muster up to do this or that. Faith is an attitude..and not a POWER. The POWER is all God.

Abraham/Sarah did not muster up faith to have Isaac. They BELIEVED God, and that God would do what He said He would do...and that promise was to Abraham and Sarah. Now mis-guided WOF People believe they can take anything and FAITH it into Action, by their own power.

To do greater works , believe you are greater than Jesus Christ.

I believe Oral Roberts,Benny Hinn. Oral Roberts has passed on. Is Binny Hinn ill? Anyway. God gives these men and women the gift of healing. No man heals anyone. God does the healing. You need to understand this. Just like no pope can save you, heal you or pardon your sins. So many people are perishing for a lack of knowledge(2 Chron7:14) Please get into God's Word( the bible) and you won't be disturbed by these sorts of things. The bible clearly tells us to study to show ourselves approved. Learn to rightly divide the word of truth(spiritual understanding). Benny Hinn and others are simply servants( as we all are) of God. This is his ministry and what He feels God has called him to do. We all have a calling! Do you know yours?
---Robyn on 8/10/10

Like Oral Roberts, Benny Hinn and others they are simply con artist and masquerading as preachers for the graft they my acquire. They are the P. T. Barnums of Christianity.

I might let each one speak for oneself, and I might get different answers.

One person might say he or she has the healing power, but has not been healed because God wants the unhealed healer to be able to feel for others who need healing.

The main healing comes with obeying James 5:16, I consider and offer: "Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." We can be "healed" of whatever in our character makes us able to sin and then suffer personality disorder, and become "healed" together with God in His own love.

If X prays and Y is healed, that's a good thing. I'll let it go at that...

Candice and Lawrence, could it be possible the Word of Faith TEACHERS/PREACHERS are doing the bidding of their father, Matthew 21:12-13, John 8:44-47, and 2 Corinthians 11:13-15

They claim to have the power and authority from God to heal, but I have noticed so many of them wear glasses. Why don't they heal their eyes.

Also they always tell people if they want healing from God they must send money to their ministry.

Does this not go against what is written in Acts 8:19-23?

I wonder why they never ever share this passage of scripture?
---Rob on 8/9/10

You don't really need to ask this question...the answer is self-evident?

So Right Candice.
They are also there for peoples money so they can live better than you & don't care for peoples souls.
---Lawrence on 8/9/10

Because they are saying what the public wants to hear. the word of faith is untrue,like the new age things.
---Candice on 8/9/10

John 14:12,13 Verily verily I say unto you,he that believes on me,the works that I do shall he do also,and greater works than these shall he do,because I go unto my father. And whatsoever you ask in my name that will I do,that the Father may be glorified in the son. We all have received the authority from God through Jesus to act as his hand extended and heal. It is the infilling Gift of the Holy Ghost who empowers us to operate in the Spirit that people may be healed when we pray. The biggest fault with Modern man is putting labels to everything,Word of Faith Movement,without faith it is impossible to please God or do anything Spiritual. It is harder for me to have faith for myself than for others.

---Rob here is the truth. Most of those people who claim to have the power to heal have experienced in the past a miraculous healing taking place. This may have happened as much as 35 or 40 years ago(I'm thinking about a certain man) and they have been living, so to speak, since off of this healing taking place many years ago.

I myself have witnessed healings(very very few) and I realized today that the reason that healing took place was because I was asking something that was in God's will, and because it was in his will. He heard me. And he granted the prayer.

This is what I believe about the healing word of faith people.
