All that aside I can honestly tell you that this is a work of fact and not fiction. I left the "faith movement" a number of years ago. I once held to the teachings of men like Copeland, Hagin, Hinn and others until I placed their teachings up against the plumbline of scripture. I found that their teachings simply were not square.
The truth hurts. In an age of "easy believism" I guess it's just easier for some people to live for experience, after experience, after experience. These teachers preach a gospel of prosperity, comfort and healing for all. Any one who has read the bible knows that this is "a different gospel". In 1990 a believer in the "faith movement" actually had the audacity to tell me that my brother died of colon cancer because my family did not have enough faith. A simple study of the character of God proves this statement to be false.
I don't need to listen to Mr. Hanegraff's tapes to know that what he said about these false teachers is true. I have heard them say it with my own ears. Mr. Hanegraff is not a liar.
To those who follow the "faith movement" and it's dangerous teachings I would remind you of this one thing: "If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me." Matt. 16:24
When I first read the book, I did not know if Hanegraaff was accurately representing the teachings of those whom he quoted. After reading the book I did listen to a handful of such men and found the book did appear to accurately represent the doctrines of these individuals.
This book does a very good job elaborating on the "word faith" doctrines and then exposing them to Scripture so the difference between mainstream Christianity and the "word faith" theology can be more plainly seen.
As a matter of taste, the book does come off a bit harsh on certain individuals (and this is a hard thing for me to say as I have been known to be harsh at times). Nonetheless, this is a very informative book and worth the read.
Get the books and read them every one MUST be warned of the heresies out there being called "Christianity".
It is so typical (and very un-Christ-like) of people who are involved in this very damnable heretical movement to become almost violent in words and action as you have noticed by many who have entered their less than favorable reviews. Such as the "so-called" theology professor who claims he has researched all of Hank's material and found them erroneous. You've been caught! This is definately not true.
Again, as a former licensed Word of Faith minister, this book is an absolute must! Buy it and see. Be sure to get the accompanying cassettes. They too are well documented and you can hear the startling and blasphemous babblings of these Word of Faith preachers first hand! There are no lies or misrepresentations in this award winning book and Hank Hanegraaff is supurb in both style and presentation.
If you love God, get this book. If you love your religion, then continue in your darkness!
God help those who are blind. Titus 1:10-16
