Perhaps the most disturbing thing about T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Paula White, Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, and a host of other false teachers in their generation, is they’ve been scheming Believers and blaspheming the truth of God for 20+ years - and they show no signs of repenting. They don’t flinch or stutter when they preach lies, heresy and the doctrines of demons. Indeed, they are false teachers through and through. The preponderance of the evidence is stacked so highly against them that this fact isn’t even debatable!
But there is a new generation of false teachers following in their footsteps, some of whom they’ve influenced, mentored and even raised from birth. But if it is possible, I pray this new generation will see their error and repent as soon as possible. Like their elders, this rising class of the uncalled are capturing the hearts of professed Believers the world over, especially among millennials, and they’re leading countless souls astray. These preachers are young, funny, charming, wise (according to men), well-dressed, successful, physically attractive - and wholly unqualified to teach the people of God. Their doctrines are dangerous, their speech is destructive, and their errors are damnable. They withhold the Gospel, fail to teach the full counsel of God, and they readily compromise the truth.
If it is your desire in 2018, and beyond, to sincerely follow and mature in Christ, I’m telling you in all earnestness that these individuals are NOT going to help you do that. Not only do they not teach the deeper things of God’s word, they don’t even rightly divide the basics! The “pure milk of the Word” is what we need to even begin to grow in Christ. Yet something in the milk they're serving ain’t clean. The things they say may sound good. Some of it may even contain some truth. But they always seem to slip in destructive errors that pervert the Way of God, making the entire drink POISON to the hearer!
May God have mercy!
“I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:17). Loves, resolve not to be simple in 2018! Instead, “as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2).
