What is Word Of Faith Doctrine?

I will explain what Word of Faith(WOF) doctrine is & why it is heretical without a shadow of a doubt. I will try to make this weighty matter brief as possible.


*If you are in a Charismatic Pentecostal church, you need to read 1 of 3*

1. A Different Gospel--D.R. McConnell

2.Charismatic Chaos--John MacArthur Jr.

3.Christianity In Crisis--Hank Hanegraaf

"If I can confess it, I can possess it", "Name it Claim it", Speak those things that be not as though they were", "You have to speak those things."

These terms might sound spiffy or crafty to you, but the question is, "are they Biblical?" I will answer with a EMPHATIC NO!!!! Where did these terms come from? Are they new?

There is nothing new under the sun. These terms were started by a man named E.W. Kenyon. Who was he? E. W. Kenyon was a man who started of as a baptist preacher who began to intermingle with people who were in to what we would call positive thinking or new age thought. E. W. Kenyon thought he would mix the Christian faith with this new thought positive thinking. He began to read papers and books by Phineas P. Quimby . He enjoyed Quimby's material and thought it would mix well with Christianity. He became a great tool in the hands of satan to get us to where we are today with American Christendom.

The person that most pastor's will say is the father of this movement would be Kenneth Hagin Sr. or maybe even William Branahm. My old pastor looked up to this guy and so do so many others. Kenneth Hagin plagiarized almost verbatim E. W. Kenyon and this is documented clearly in, "A Different Gospel" and is a stone cold fact, read it for yourself. Kenneth Hagin claimed to get this information from God but in actuality got it from Kenyon the century before him. William Branahm-another false preacher and prophet would not even allow a black person to sit in the service while he was preaching. These seeker sensitive and charismatic church movements that we see so much of today are all spawned from this guys teachings.

Why is this wrong you might ask? It is wrong because they teach about another Jesus.

2 Corinthians 11:4
For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted--you may well put up with it!

Galatians 1: 6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

This is what Paul warned the Corinthians and the Galatians about here. A couple of examples of what most word of faith churches teach.

1. They make the Divine Son of God into a born-again man who had to die in Hell to pay the price for our treason.

2. They replace prayer with confession, and God's will with the manipulation of 'forces'.

3. They focus on self and the world instead of God and Heaven. It focuses on self and the world instead of God and Heaven.

(these reasons and more are located

These are only a couple of things that they believe and people can be easily deceived because we do not get in to the Word of the Living God. The church as we know it has become indoctrinated with this heresy. If you are in one of these churches I would recommend you leave. If you don't want to leave OK, stay but do not take lightly the things that are here. I am a Christian and stayed in my church for almost 2 years after God started to reveal these things to me rapidly. I liken it to "The Matrix" and taking that pill that Neo took, do you recall that movie. I sincerely prayed for the Truth and I thank him more and more each day that he showed His truth, I admonish you to seek the same. I will write more on this later--the rabbit hole gets deeper. God Bless in Christ

John 17:17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
