If you have preached the gospel and have helped others go into the harvest field,pioneering a church,you would know what I am talking about,maybe you need to look in the mirror and ask your self a few questions,facing our own selves sometimes is the hardest thing to do,if pastor franklin is living a clean and holy life,can you say that,there are probably alot of people living a clean life under his ministry,so who are you to say he has false doctrine and if so,which sermon have you heard that has false doctrine,do you live a life worthy to be examined and if so do you have no faults or sin in your life,easy to judge someone else.I live a clean life-no booze,no cussing,no pornography,no lusting after woman,no fornication,no adultery,but that should be our nature not to do these things,if we are truly born again,filled with the holy ghost.
Here is the goal for all those who dont know and do belong to the lord, My goal is to never sin, this is highly unlikely of happening, but the way I think will never be sin again, that's the difference, you guys are just not understanding how narrow the path really is! here is to know truth, know what your doing and why your doing it, when the holy spirit was convicting me of sin, I still sinned but my thinking was not sin as paul explains this sometimes he did what he didnt want to do, but please somebody tell me if you think paul's thinking was sin? not! understand this If im wrong about this, the truth is not in me. so once again there is only two paths saved or unsaved, does the bible need more books to explain this fact? since there is only one heaven, one hell, there are only 2 roads, no such thing as religion, either truth or lie, or else god is confusion. when you guys start grasping the concept of a few people find it, ETERNAL LIFE, here is the truth if you have gone the cross in union with christ and has not radically changed your life and your thinking. You are not a christian, you are what is closing the doors of heaven on other people and will not let them enter, because of the so called christians who may have made a couple little changes in their life, just re-thinking your life doesnt do it, giddiness of the head is not the holy spirit, before I was a believer Ive crossed paths with 1000's of people, only 5 that were saved! many of these people would say there christians, but have no testimony, they think like the world, prophets and teachers are surley held to a higher standard, can you guys not tell the difference of a spontaneous one act of sin as opposed to the way someone thinks and what they believe?
A preacher in those days, when he felt God called him to preach, didn't hunt up a college or seminary, he hunted up a good horse, took off across the country and began crying "Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sins of the world"!
That was well-said also, loverofgod. I stand by my argument, but will lay down my weapons. I pray the best for you and anyone else that reads this forum. My comments are not meant to hurt any minister. They are simply meant to be a tool to encourage people to be careful with whom they place their trust. And to also let any minister that may read this forum know that they are dealing with human beings whose lives can be affected forever by their actions. When you are assuming the office of Pastor, Preacher, Bishop, Reverend or any of those spiritual positions, you are literally holding people's eternal souls in your hands. If not held responsible here on Earth, you will be held responsible one day in the literal presence of the Great and Almighty Jehovah.
T. Michelle, what I have to say is not based on opinion. My statements are based on facts. It is not judgmental. Because I KNOW. The Bible warns of being mindful of false teachers. Be wary of anyone who Pharisee-like teachers and preachers who look legit on the outside, but their insides rotten. Let's take a look at Jesus' ministry on Earth. What made him angry? Was he ever angry with the prostitutes? Nope. Did he ever rebuke a drunkard? Nope. Did he rebuke Peter for his denial? Nope. Out of all of the sinners that Jesus encountered in his time on Earth, the only ones that drew the anger of Christ was the modern day religious types. The Pharisees and Saducees. He could not stand the fact that the temple was being used as a place of commerce. Sounds like alot of modern day evangelists coming in to town to preach a sermon that just happens to be the subject of the new book they are promoting. Not only do they sell a ton of books, but they also usually take home tens of thousands of dollars while other people who have served in the church faithfully for years are denied emergency help and funds after losing their jobs. Like I said, this is not opinion..... this is fact. I have been in your shoes. And I believe God has allowed me to experience the things I have experienced to try to warn good people, like you, to not give your heart so easily to the smooth talking, hypnotic words that these men speak.
GOD bless all this New Year*I agree their is alot of Preachers out their that have alot of money , But was not Abraham very, very RICH and Solomon ask for Wisdom when God told him ask me for anything and I will give it to thee!! Solomon ask for Wisdom yet God gave him that and made him Rich. I am not Rich, I would give my last dollar to a needy person infact I am more poor then I ever have been in some ways in my life. But I am still grateful for any dollar I get and I do know when you give to one of Gods **HE DOES GIVE IT BACK AND THEN SOME** Maybe not in money that is green but blessings unseen and seen I JUST KNOW THAT I KNOW HE DOES. FAITH IS JUDGED BY YOUR HEART ! if it were not I would not know how much FAITH I have. I know my spirit does agree with Jentezen Franklin I know he is a man who answers to GOD, he is to be trusted!!!!!! I love how he reaches so many in his way of preaching and how he shares the word of God. Not all people can comprehend the Bible he makes it so they can and with that he gives them desire to love God Jesus he gives them Passion to want to be all that they can be all that God wants and created them to be. HE GIVES THEM HOPE AND LOVE AND I THINK HE IS COOL IN THE WAY HE SPEAKS THE TRUTH OF THIS WORLD THAT CONVICTS ALL WHO HEAR HIM. Only humans that do not wish to hear the truth will find fault in him!!!!!!!
