Walking Before Running

If you are a Christian and want to test whether you can differentiate sound Biblical doctrine from false doctrine, listen to obviously false teachings and see if you know why they are false.  For if you are unable to spot the heresy in those teachers who are obviously antichrist, how will you ever spot the clever wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing?

There are two people you can listen to where you will be guaranteed to encounter antichrist doctrine.  One person is Joel Osteen, the “pastor” of one of the largest “Christian” churches in America.  The other person is Oprah Winfrey, a woman who is antichrist and yet has always tricked Christians into listening to her teachings by referring to “god” and using spiritual terminology.

Joel was on Oprah’s show recently, and he lead the crowd in chants proclaiming how great they are.  They would chant “I am” followed by a word describing who they “are”:  strong, healthy, confident, secure, talented, creative, disciplined, focused, valuable, beautiful, blessed, excited about my future, victorious.

Did someone forget to tell Joel Osteen that God did not come for the righteous and self-sufficient, but for miserable sinners?

For consider your calling brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God.  1 Corinthians 1: 26 – 29

Joel Osteen is antichrist and yet thought to be a Christian. 

Do the dirty work and study false teaching, for it is a Biblical way to spiritually mature.

Solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.  Hebrews 5: 14
