DirectTV Dropping GOD TV

I just learned that DirectTV will be dropping GOD TV from their programming lineup.  They’re getting the old heave-ho!  The last day that GOD TV programming will be aired on DirectTV is September 30th. 

If you’ll click this link, you’ll see a video appeal from Rory and Wendy Alec.  They want you to ACT NOW and inform DirectTV that you want them to keep GOD TV on their platform.  I say … nah, no thanks!

Losing this platform, Rory and Wendy Alec are losing their ability to broadcast to millions of homes, and that means millions of potential donors.  I just have a hard time feeling bad about that.  In fact, I say… PRAISE THE LORD!

Now, I know Rory and Wendy Alec are survivors and they’ll find a way to keep their apostate channel going.  But, for now, I praise God that a door has been closed on them.  May it continue.

Update:  GOD TV and DirectTV have come to a deal, and they will continue to air the GOD TV channel.  Click here for more.

    Thanks be to God!

    There’s barely any real godly programming to watch on Sky Angel either and I’m many times a step away from canceling it. I would so like to see this channel as well as several more like it get canceled. I finally have a mechanism to “block” the channel so the my children don’t stumble upon it now.

  2. Teresa says:

    This is mostly what I remember about Wendy Alec. The false prophecy she gave about Jesus was going to appear “physically” in person at the Lakeland revival. Here is that link if you can stomach it. I get sick every time I hear this stuff.l

    @DANNY I Amen! your Amen!!!

  3. Beracah says:

    @ Thomas – I have Sky Angel too, haven’t used it in a while. I work for the cable company here and get pretty much every channel they offer, almost for free. I got Sky Angel just to check it out, as an alternative to the crap on cable. The music video channels, Military channel, and a couple others, I like. But that’s about it. too many televangelists beggin for money.

    What a sad state of affairs it is, that we’d have to block a Christian TV channel to keep our kids safe. What has the church become…

  4. Thanks for passing this on, I just sent a thank you email to Direct TV for their wise decision on protecting people from others who prey upon them in the name of Christianity.

  5. Laura says:

    I logged into God TV for one reason, to watch the Todd Bentley fiasco. I allowed their email updates to keep an eye on what they were up to. Upon receiving the recent announcement, begging their subscribers to contact Direct TV to save their programming, I sent an email asking the reason behind the decision to drop them. No response.
    So, does anyone know the reason WHY? Lack of payment? Regardless, adios!

  6. Grant says:

    I saw a telethon they’re doing and a scroll across the bottom saying DirectTV was dropping them oct1 and then heard the Rory and Wendy claiming favor etc before Oct 1. At first I thought okay they are finally getting pulled but got the feeling later it could still be a marketing gimmick of the scrolling about DirectTV and a ploy that had already been dealt with but is being presented this way to solict/rally viewers and get more money. We’ll see what happens.

  7. Ruitje says:

    This week I tried to go to the God.tv website, but it doesn’t work anymore…

    And I can’t see the videolink you placed in your article. Maybe the website is banned in Europe?

    I always found it strange that the angels on their website are dressed in black… Are they showing their real source?

  8. Ruitje says:

    I tried the link again, and now it works… Watching the urgent call from the Alec’s.

    I wonder why they never ask themselves if this action from DirectTv is maybe a sign from God to stop their heresy-channel. But they think it is satan who want them to stop. These ‘prophets’ have no discernment at all.

  9. Beracah says:

    @ Ruitje – The ‘spiritually superior’ think they’re always right and everyone else is either wrong, or out to get them…. making everyone else either spiritually immature, or demonic….the enemy.

    How convenient. This thought process (I call it brainwashed) encourages nothing more than an emotional sympathy from their viewers\followers, which causes them to dig into the bank accounts. These so-called leaders are the very ones Jesus drove from the temple!

  10. Paul Gesh says:

    Thank you for the good news!

  11. Ruitje says:

    @Beracah, you are right, they feel superior and are thinking they are the elite that are on a higher level…

  12. Carolyn says:

    @ Teresa – watched the You Tube you posted above. The first part with Wendy’s prophecy of showing up on the stage…and then he back pedals to explain that it won’t be a physical showing up…it’s so vague…
    Another more recent vague, supposed future event…have you heard that the interplanetary travellers are supposed to show up over the major cities on October 13, 2010? A bit vague wouldn’t you say?
    And as for the second part of the video clip…talk about Todd whipping a crowd into a frenzy. No better example than that one.
    love you girl!

  13. Jamal says:

    …the week just keeps getting better!

    awesome news

  14. Teresa says:

    @ Carolyn
    Yes, he sure did try to justify that false prophecy, as do all false prophets. I pray that the Almighty God will expose more. Praise the LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Love you right back at you Carolyn!!!

  15. Sean says:

    Hello Teresa,

    I’ll ditto what Carolyn said about your U-tube video.

    Thanks!

  16. Annunk says:

    Well, I sent feedback@godtv.com a message telling them, ‘Hate to see you go, bye! Wish you could stay but go ahead and leave!’

    Aren’t I awful?

  17. Teresa says:

    You are welcome Sean.
    @Carolyn What is interplanetary travellers? I can not seem to find anything about that online.

  18. mkayla says:

    I’m very happy to know this. I sent a message to DirecTV thanking them for this decision. Maybe it will stick. Thanks for the hot news. :)

    God bless.

  19. mkayla says:

    This is the response I got from DTV when I thanked them for the cancelation –

    Please note that our current agreement with God TV is expiring on October 1 and we do not have an agreement to carry the station beyond that date. The network has applied for carriage under the FCC’s public interest obligation and we will consider it for one of those slots

  20. Al says:

    One would think that Christians would support each other in an effort to encourage MORE Christian channels and less of the filth that the commercial networks air every day. GOD TV may not be perfect but you can’t just dismiss ALL of its programming as there are many, many genuine ministries represented. Look at the heart of Rory & Wendy Alec – it’s first and foremost to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. i.e. to lead people to Christ. We may differ on doctrine, but we can’t fault them for that. Wendy’s prophecy about Todd Bentley has been misunderstood. She did not say Jesus would physically appear on the platform. Criticism of GOD TV’s founders or a particular TV series is not a reason to reject a whole channel. I can’t believe some Christians would prefer GOD TV to be replaced with a commercial worldly channel than to keep it on air and reach more people who don’t know the love of God. GOD TV will survive this trial with DIRECTV and comeback even stronger.

  21. Teresa says:

    @ Al, you might want to go and listen to the video again, cause you are the one misunderstanding the prophecy.

    @ Wendy said; Jesus said I am coming” in person,”the king is coming in person.
    @ Wendy said; The King of Glory sets “foot” upon stage

    In Person, go look up what that mean: IN THE FLESH

    FALSE PROPHETS Benny Hinn also prophecied Jesus would appear in his crusades.

  22. Teresa says:

    @ Al here is a link of a word for word transcript of Wendy Alec’s false prophecy
    There is some good stuff to read”
    http://blog.thewaycf.com/2008/06/jesus-lied-his-chariot-broke-down-or.html

    Now I will paste the transcript for you from the link above
    Monday, June 9, 2008
    JESUS LIED, His chariot broke down, or Wendy Alec is a false prophet.
    Which do you think is most likely?

    Thanks to Miriam at endtimespropheticwords

    I recorded this “prophecy” Saturday night, and planned on writing a post but Miriam did a fine job. So I will use her text and replace the video with a transcript.

    On Saturday, June 7the, Todd Bentley read out a prophecy from Wendy Alec, co-founder of GOD TV. It was done to hype the Sunday night show (8th June – tonight) for the “kingly anointing” to fall.

    WENDY ALEC’S PROPHECY FOLLOWS:
    The Lord just spoke to me and said “This IS what will happen tomorrow night!”
    The King and the King’s anonting falls tomorrow night. The 8th of June, the anointing of the King of Glory falls.
    Jesus said, “I am coming in person.” The King is coming in person.
    I sense so strongly there will be a personal divine visitation of the Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ to the revival tomorrow night.
    He will come in the clouds, in His chariot, surrounded by a great angelic hos,t because the great honoring of the Lamb of God, The King of Glory is coming to visit Lakeland, to visit the revival, to visit the outpouring.
    The devil trembles with that knowledge. For tomorrow the King of Glory sets foot upon the stage in divine, personal, one-to-one visitation.

    Todd reads this prophecy out, which could not be any clearer – he seems to be prophesying a Benny Hinn prophesied moment that has yet to occur for Benny Hinn – and then, as the camera records some concerned and gobsmacked faces (glad not all have hung up their brains completely), he suddenly explains about ‘the prophetic’ and justifies the prophecy. He says:

    Now for all those watching, who just don’t understand the nature of the prophetic,…

    Al, I pray that the LORD opens your eyes to the truth, that is my prayer for you

  23. Beracah says:

    @Al – I don’t think anyone here wants to replace God TV with a ‘worldly’ channel. If GodTV gets replaced, it would be great to have it replaced with an even better channel, one that is for the Truth, and doesn’t have false prophets, televangelists, etc begging for money, with an emotional ‘circus’ style appeal to the masses. That’s a nice thought. However, if that can’t happen, then don’t replace it at all…let’s move away from the TV, and spend time in the Word. I know, I know, it’s another tool to reach the unsaved. Think about this. God doesn’t ‘need’ God TV to reach anyone. He’ll reach them when & how He wants. As Jesus wanted to drive out the money changers (rather than have them perform a great service to the public – he knew they were crooked – I’m sure there were some who weren’t crooked) it’s not wrong to want to see something with a great potential, being used for no good, removed form the airwaves. I’m trying to make sense. It’s hard to put it into words…lol. Personally, I can’t watch any preachers on TV now. Doesn’t mean they’re all bad, but I’d rather read it for myself. I can’t name any of my unsaved friends who would watch TV preachers. Instead they talk to me and ask questions about my faith, about who Jesus was, about why Christians do the crazy things they hear about on the news. Had one in tears one day, simply by telling her (she’s agnostic) that Jesus simply loved her, and that He doesn’t care what color her skin is or how she dresses. She said ‘I don’t know why I’m crying’. I said…I do :) TV is a great tool when it’s used to spread the truth, not when it’s used for financial gain, and calling it witnessing.

  24. Carolyn says:

    @Teresa. Sorry didn’t see your question till now. I heard about this on Prophecy in the News, update for Sept. 24/10 with Gary Stearman
    http://www.prophecyinthenews.com/category/daily-update/
    According to retired NORAD officer, we are due for a massive visit from UFOs over major cities. They will not land or communicate but it will be the first in a series to save the planet. Obviously these interplanetary space travellers are demons masquerading as angels of light, but the thing is, that they are creating interest and notoriety.

  25. Carolyn says:

    @Al – we support the Truth in Jesus Christ. And we support Christ in his definition of false prophets. He instructed us to watch out for them and to have nothing to do with them and that includes watching them on tv.
    As for the filth on tv…not even close to being a counterfeit for Christianity. If you watch the filth, you are probably not a Christian.

  26. ANDY P says:

    AL:

    I would agree that Christians should support each other in an effort to encourage more Christian channels on TV. The problem is, of course, that God TV is in NO WAY a Christian channel. How can you call programming that continually foists false prophets and false teachers on the world ‘christian’?

    You say to look at the ‘heart’ of Rory and Wendy. Since neither of us knows them intimately, the only way to know their heart is by what they teach. And the fruit is CLEARLY ROTTON.

    You say that their goal is to lead people to Christ, but what actually happens is that they lead people AWAY from Christ, into a false religion that will damn them just as surely as outright headonism will.

    The type of hyper-charasmatic, word of faith nonsense is damaging to the cause of Christ, not helpful. For instance, your vigorous defense of FALSE PROPHETS can only make me believe that you refuse to hold up the Bible as your standard, but rather your feelings and perceptions.

    One can only hope that you become more discerning before you fall into serious error.

  27. Ruitje says:

    @Al, may be should ask yourself to which ‘Christ’ the Alec’s want to lead people. Most of the teacher on that channel teach false doctrine (like Word of Faith…) and preach another Jesus.
    Read 2 Corinthians 11 where Paul warns for the ‘superapostels’ teaching another ‘Jesus’.

  28. mikey says:

    RE: Al: “Look at the heart of Rory & Wendy Alec – it’s first and foremost to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. i.e. to lead people to Christ.”
    You can’t know that. I’m sorry but IMHO it is impossible to truly know someone else’s heart.
    “Wendy’s prophecy about Todd Bentley has been misunderstood. She did not say Jesus would physically appear on the platform.” You can’t possibly be serious….her “prophecy” was very specific. That’s why Bentley immediately started to explain what would “really” happen. Take off the blinders dude!

  29. Eli says:

    @Al
    Tsk Tsk. So what you’re saying is presenting a FALSE gospel and a FALSE jesus is better than NO gospel? Fake healings are okie dokie? promoting man-centered money worshiping Word of Faith doctrine is just fine? Spewing out false prophecies is better than no prophecies? Elevating people such as Todd Bently to icon status is ok? Differing on doctrin is just the tip of the ice berg my friend. As my kid would say, “don’t ‘church’ it up” ok? You’re glossing over some serious serious doctrinal errors. And here’s a clue, you can’t lead people to Christ with a FALSE GOSPEL. If this is really how you feel, then you’ve just compromised. Shame on you. And someone here correct me if I’m wrong (never could stomach watching the whole video) but I believe she DID say Jesus would show up in person, then back peddled. Benny Hinn has done it too, that one I did see. “Prophecied” that Jesus in the flesh would show up in person.

  30. katesjc6189 says:

    Yipee hope it goes ahead!

  31. Robert L. says:

    God TV likes to think they offer up a cafeteria style ” Christianity ” : Gimme a whole lotta Word of Faith potatoe nonsense, some copious amounts of Benny Hinn Fake healin gravy, a side order of old covenant John Hagee ‘do-it-now’ tithing, slap on some ” Money Cometh ” pasta pimpin preachers, 3 scoops of Todd Bentley,Ken Copeland, Paula White false prophecy surprizes, Joel Osteen to make me feel good, and then, and, to give the meal some balance & legitimacy – AL – lets add a sprinkle of salt and get a couple of Bible believing ministers to talk turkey about all the wolves out there.
    If this doesn’t make you vomit, I’m sure going back for seconds will.

    I say good riddance, but 10 to 1 its a ploy to line thier pockets with some cold hard cash.

  32. John says:

    Regarding the comments about replacing GodTV with a secular/worldly station:

    In my view this would be an improvement, even if the station was a porn channel! The reason being that a secular station, even one broadcasting non-stop immorality, does not claim to be Christian and therefore is not going to deceive vulnerable people into believing that its programs have anything to do with Christianity.

    Having watched a little of GodTV, I’ve concluded that Rory and Wendy are seriously deluded if they think it has anything to do with Christianity. Like all Christian TV, it’s part of an evil money-making system.

    There are probably a few sound teachers on the channel, but overall the harm that it does is so great that society is better off without it.

  33. katesjc6189 says:

    I would rather watch a legal porn channel than the crap coming out of God Channel. Cos at least the people are decent etc. I hope Direct TV drops them. Anyone know WHY they are being dropped? Hong Kong Cable was another emergency rescue they since rescued it and they have lost distribution as well as gained it.

    for the original groundbreaking research that has enabled other people to blog informatively and authoratively about them.

  35. mkayla says:

    John, I agree with you on this. If secular, at least it is what it is. Rory and Wendy and all the false teachers and self-proclaimed prophets have done great damage to the faith.

    To make things worse we have believers who support them based on limited perception – their heart, their intent – the emotionalism of it all. The truth is found in the word and there alone. The time has long passed that we should stop making excuses for them and do what the word of God tells us to do – expose them, flee from them, have nothing to do with them, for they will mislead and destroy many. This is exactly what has happened for too long a time. And while it is possible to be deceived – I was one of them – there comes a time when we will no longer have an excuse.

    Be the berean and open the bible. When someone is claiming to be reading the word out loud or when they are claiming “God said… and then this happend”, read it for yourself – in context. Then you will see the truth. No one who has a true heart for God takes the side of liars and their lies once they get to know Him through His word.

  36. mkayla says:

    Two good reasons why Wendy Alec’s prophecy of Jesus appearing at Lakeland was a false prophecy as soon as she uttered the words:

    Matthew 24:25-27
    25 See, I have told you beforehand.
    26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

    Acts 1:10-12
    10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

  37. Melinda LeBlanc says:

    I just stumbled onto this website…. This is so very sad. This is why the devil has such a stronghold in the earth today. Is there anyone on that network saying that salvation comes from anything except Jesus Christ? When is the last time any of you appealed to Directv to remove the LOGO channel from its general lineup. I bet NONE! I bet your concerns are for YOUR Doctrine…. Not Christs! Have you ever experienced a Divine Visitation? When you put YOU aside and draw nearer to Christ then and only then will he draw nearer to you. Then you can speak on such things…. then you will understand what was being said. What do you want more?…. To be right or to reach the lost and dying in this world. There is no way you have watched GodTV and not seen that people from around the world are coming to know Jesus as their personal Savior. Do you think Satan is doing that? How dare you allow the enemy to use you as a weapon to keep the lost from Christ! Be sure of what your doing and know you will be held accountable for YOUR actions. God doesnt need you to fight his battles but the enemy will sure use you to fight his! Its easy to Discern what we feel but can you lay YOU down and Discern the heart of Christ!

    • Melinda,

      Hello! Welcome to Slaughter of the Sheep. There are many, many channels I would love to see removed from satellite, but alas, they don’t ask me before they sign the contracts. The LOGO channel is definitely worldly, but so is Direct tv. They don’t puport to be Christian in any sense of the word. GOD TV does. And many believe they represent Biblical Christianity. That’s where the danger lies. It shipwrecks faith.

      When people turn on the Playboy channel, they are turning it on because they want to see what that channel is producing. Filth. When people turn on GOD TV, it is because they are interested in watching Christian programming… but sadly, they aren’t getting programming that represents true Biblical Christianity… they’re getting a false Christianity, and are hearing about a false Jesus who has no power to save.

      There is a huge difference here.

  38. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    What? UFO’s? Where and when–this has to be a joke, guys, right?

    The only massive invasion I can understand and take very seriously is Jihadist murderers coming into the USA unaware–to kill us– I don’t have time to even allow a frivolous alien thought; I’m more concerned that NYC is going to be hit again and it won’t be pretty.

    Stop looking up to the stars for crazy signs and wonders that haven’t got a fiddler’s fig’s connection to God’s word, so, so silly! K

  39. Elieen says:

    Regarding Melinda Leblanc.

    Doncha just LOVE it when people come in here, give the place a “modest cursory look” and make an across the board judgement like that without reading much, without listening to what’s been said, with (to use Bud’s phrase) the discernment of a house plant?

    Melinda, you’re way off base. All I can say is what I said earlier. YOU CAN’T BRING ANY ONE TO CHRIST WITH A FALSE GOSPEL. %99.999999 of what seeps out of God(less)tv is a false christ, a false gospel, man-centered, and unable to save ANYbody. I pray God will rip the blinders from your eyes before it’s too late. and by the way, it has zero to do with being right, and everthing to do with being scriptural and true to God’s Holy word. Godtv wouldn’t know scriptural if it walked up and spit on them.

  40. Eli says:

    oh and by the way, just so you guys know, yes Eli is short for Elieen. I see I didn’t change it last time. it’s pronounced “ellie” as in Ellie Mae Clampet. HA!!

  41. Eli says:

    whoops, looks like my comment disappeared. ah well…..

    • Eli (Ellie/Eileen),

      It didn’t disappear, I’m just slow on getting it approved. Crazy day at work…whew!

      … and all this time I thought you were a dude instead of a dudette! LOL! Made my head spin a little.

    Direct from the GodTv website:
    BREAKING NEWS
    SEPTEMBER 29, 1PM

    Today we can truly say, BREAKTHROUGH IS HERE!

    A huge thank you to each and every one of you for your incredible support over the last two weeks!

    Because of your prayers, and because of your action, DIRECTV has agreed to continue broadcasting GOD TV on channel 365!

    We are overwhelmed by your support and rejoicing in this incredible God-given breakthrough!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! And to Him be all the glory!

  43. Ruitje says:

    @Melinda, I have watched God.tv very often online… and sorry to say, but they are not preaching the real gospel. It is not about what I feel, it is about what the Word of God says.

    Read this article, and it will be clear what the problem is with programs shown on channels like God.tv.

    http://www.cicministry.org/commentary/issue73.htm

  44. Carolyn says:

    K – My point about the UFO’s was that just as Wendy prophesied that Jesus would show up the next day physically onstage, and just as Todd back peddled saying…well, not physically, this is another “worldly”, vague prophecy… it could happen or maybe not…who will remember after October 13? Who in her fan club remembers that Wendy prophesied falsely? or that many of the other prophecies of other false prophets were not fulfilled? prophecies that were time specific and event specific but DID NOT COME TO PASS!
    It is not the Christians who are believing in UFOs but the world is getting very interested…to the point of writing books about alien invasions…
    http://www.prweb.com/releases/2010/09/prweb4491804.htm
    to the point of appointing an UN Ambassador to as an alien contact!!
    http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/un-to-appoint-earth-contact-for-aliens/story-e6frfku0-1225929498742#ixzz10bewTIOh
    and shutting down an airport:
    http://www.aolnews.com/weird-news/article/another-ufo-shuts-down-another-airport-in-china/19632027
    And that’s just this week’s news.

    Hebrews 1
    1In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

    We don’t have to worry about aliens in spaceships, as Christians, but it is a sign of the times, perilous times that we were warned about in Matthew 24 by Christ…

    Never mind about a fiddler’s fig. What about Israel, God’s fig tree? Have you been watching that since 1948?
    Apparently, 1/3 of the Bible is God’s prophecy (not man’s) to teach us about God’s total plan for his Son from Genesis to Revelation…the plan to set up his Kingdom on Earth for a thousand years in Jerusalem and then will come the end of planet earth…there will be a new heaven and a new earth and his Kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom!
    Matthew 24:32-34
    32″Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, RIGHT AT THE DOOR. 34I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
    And several place through the Old Testament, the fig tree was likened to God’s people, Israel.
    Since this particular site is not a study in eschatology, the study of endtimes, I will refer you to Mike Oppenheimer’s excellent article. It will give you a taste for the real prophetic and not this silly stuff we are hearing today from counterfeit prophets.
    This is a 4 part series on endtimes according to the Bible:
    http://www.letusreason.org/proph20.htm

    and don’t forget about Christ’s instruction to start looking for Him because he is coming soon!
    Luke 21:28
    When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

  45. Very well put Chrystal, and put in a loving attitude.
    The same could be also said for what is called “Christian Radio” and even so-called “Christian Book Stores”, most of which are a true Wide-Path.

    I was happy when several “Christian” book stores closed down here in the Tampa Area over the last 2 years. They sell anybody and anything claiming to be Christian. I remember when I was Born-Again, new in the things of Christ, and feeding on milk. I listened, watched and read anything assuming that if it said Christian, they couldn’t be lying.

    But with the Holy Ghosts guidance, when I read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, I discovered a different “Jesus” that what many Radio, TV, and Big Book writers portray.

    There in lies the danger, most of the Radio, TV, and Big Book writers job for Satan is to keep people away from reading their Bibles, and happy on second handed distorted and twisted scripture readings and interpretations. Radio, TV, and Big Book writers telling itching ears what they want to hear, rather than telling them the Truthful Word of God.

  46. Melinda LeBlanc says:

    I guess I need a few things cleared up for me….. Ruitje Thankyou for the referance material. Ok so if someone comes to me and I want to share Jesus with them.
    1.First off I need to make sure that I have a complete knowledge of the Bible (Is that Old Testament and New or is there parts that God has EVOLVED from that I should leave out?) Let’s say I have a Theology Masters and I am AMAZING (and incredibly pompous) and I know EXACTLY every lesson God has given in his word. (By the way I learn more and more everytime I read my Bible so I think this leaves my eligibility out) Ok so now I know EVERYTHING! Awesome! Now I am worthy for God to use me!
    2. I need to make sure they know that they are a sinner. (of course) Got it!
    3. I need to make sure they know that they are bound for the Hell that they deserve for the wages of their sin! (OK .. Wages of sin is Death!) Got it!
    4. I need to tell them that Jesus Christ died on the cross for their salvation! (He did!) 5. I need them to know that because of his sacrifice they can be saved from the Hell that they deserve! (Ok… not really gettin the part where he loves you but I wouldnt wanna get soft on um…. I got them heathens right where I want um!) I CAN’T let them find out that God loves them…. that he is their comforter, their friend…. that he takes joy in there success and wants great happiness and prosperity for his children…. that he loves them soo much that hearing them call out his name brings him unmeasured happiness and joy! That he brings them through storms all the while teaching them lessons on his love and trust in him alone….. (Gotta leave all that out right! Uhhhgggg its almost impossible not to tell them what he has done for me! But I gotta just stick to the HELL WIDE OPEN part right… or it wont take!!)
    6. Ok once I got the Filthy sinner right where I want him….. (I am gettin a nose bleed up here on my high horse!) Oh No! What if he asks me something like….. why did God create us? What kind of being creates a bunch of other beings so he can show how unworthy his creation is by requiring them to confess their Unworthiness or He will put you in a place where you will burn and beg for a death that will never come? If you are lucky he will allow you to PRAISE AND WORSHIP him often and be saved! (Oh man its gonna be hard to explain God without Love!! I mean I dont wanna ruin their salvation and make it null and void! Before I always thought we had a personal salvation that was between the sinner and God….. not this Collective Religious Correctness! How do I tell them that God created us out of Love? That they can understand Praise and Worship not as a Idolistic Ritual but is a Father taking Great Joy in the Love of his Precious Children….. Much like your seventeen year old driving you insane…. late for school…. friends over without permission….Your furious but then he ends one phone call with “I love you MOM!” and its the most Beatiful thing you have ever heard! How do I show them My Lord and Savior without Love?…. I cant do it…. people will just have to die without Christ…. because I’m just not qualified…..
    If you think this is Rediculous then read the important THEOLOGY referance I was given by Ruitje….. People please stop letting the DEVIL work through the BODY of CHRIST! What is a Body without an ARM..a LEG … So what if one person doesnt dress a certain way….. Look around Sunday Morning and tell me how many MEN look like Christs description in the Bible….. How can bringing the Hurting and Lost to Christ…. be anything other than what it is…… Tell me which one of you has the Wisdom to Know EVERYTHING that God has left us in the Bible? Show me the Anointed ONE! Doesnt Exist and never will….. you may see it differantly than the next but be very careful to proclaim intellectual victory in Theology…. Remember on how many occasions Jesus corrected even his own chosen disciples….. do you really think you dont stand corrected? You will be measured by the same measure you provide for everyone else. I would be careful to proclaim Supernatural Knowledge that would lead you to tear down MEN who call upon the name of Jesus Christ! God gives us Wisdom and by all means we need to speak the truth….. I have watched literally HUNDREDS of hours of Godtv…. They proclaim Salvation is JESUS CHRIST and in JESUS CHRIST alone. They are not one of these churches saying there are many ways to Christ….. Be carful to speak against Men and Woman of God….. it dangerous ground I would NEVER want to tread on!! I would have to know that I know ….. personally and not misinterpreted hearsay! Who among you has gone to them and told them they are in sin? Did God tell us to tear down a mans reputation in this way? Is this how Christians should act? Celebrating the Fall of one another? Proclaiming a Man and Womans ministry as being no better than Porn? Thats what the Bible says of Christianity? I guess I misunderstood that part of the Bible! Thats a Christian who has ARRIVED…………. But Where????

    • Melinda,

      When they become broken because they realize they are sinners, that’s when they realize how great God’s grace is. He imputed my sin to Jesus Christ, who knew no sin, and imputed the righteousness of Jesus Christ to me. That only comes through brokeness, repentance, salvation through faith in Christ’s atoning work on Calvary. Whew! There is no greater love than that!

      If they don’t accept the substitutionary atonement of Jesus, they will taste God’s wrath. You can’t separate that out of the equation.

  47. Dear Melinda…
    [I Never Knew You]
    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
    (Matthew 7:21-23 ESV)

    Calling the name, in name only, is quite different than calling His name in Faith.
    A Theologian with a Doctorate degree can share the Gospel, and so can a plow-boy in China…
    Quoting Spurgeon, “we are NOT called t proclaim philosophy or metaphysics, but the simple Gospel…”

    What these hooligans on TV are doing is adding, watering, perverting, twisting…

    Take for example your insinuation, and I know you were being sarcastic that everyone should be a theologian, but we are not talking about people on the street, these are people on the TV “professing” that they are knowledgeable, and many professing physically meeting Jesus himself in person in their own homes… They should at least know in context what the scriptures are saying and not twist them. But twist they do and in many times to a reference to line their pockets with cash.

    If they are preaching and claiming authority, they they are responsible, and we are called like the Bereans to examine what is being taught with the Scriptures. And if they are correct, then it is good, but if it does not match up, like… O so many of them do not… then they are easily identified as False Prophets, or teachers…

  48. Beracah says:

    Wow, talk about epistles. I forgot what the thread was about.

    Oh yeah, it’s about the false prophets and preachers on godtv, and how they shouldn’t be there, and how they’ll not lead the lost to Jesus, simply because they’re a bunch of money-grubbin lars.

  49. Emily Kennerson says:

    Well Melinda that is one thing on this page that deserves a AMEN!!!!!!!!!
    :-)

    • Melinda,

      I’m going to revoke your posting privileges. The reason why is because you are posting as “Melinda,” and then signing in as “Emily Kennerson” and amening yourself. If you were interested in honest discussion, we could do that, but we can’t do that if you’re going to do things like this.

  50. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    Carolyn and Teresa and Cowbelle, where are you, brilliant women of God…here K

  51. Ruitje says:

    @Melinda, you should listen carefully to those people on God.tv, like Andrew Wommack, Rick Joyner and Todd Bentley. They have a lot of false teaching, exalting man and Christ is not the centre, no it is self and how great we can be and how much power we have. But Jesus told us to take up the cross. And in this life there will be suffering, Paul the apostles told about that in 2 Cor. 4 and 6. He was focused on what is going to come, not this life here on earth. But much that I see on God.tv is prosperity now (money!) and dominion: we built the kingdom and Jesus can not come untill we build that kingdom. But Jesus will return and He will establish His Kingdom.

  52. Teresa says:

    @ Melinda or Emily!!!!!! I was going to leave a comment last night but did not. Melinda, You need to repent not only to us but to God for your dishonesty and flat out deceit. When you need to amen yourself, that is really sad. This is about God’s truth not defending youslelf or false teachers. We are to earnestly contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints, not delivered by God Tv.
    Most of us who are posting use to be decieved by these same false teachers. How dare you insult us or the LORD like this. You can protect your false teacher all you like but not without paying a serious price, not a price I want to pay. Melinda, I pray that you cry out to the LORD to open you eyes and your heart to his truth, the truth of His word.

    We as true believer’s of Christ and Christ crucified are commission to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but we need to make sure we are preaching and talking about the Jesus of the bible, not another Jesus.

    Salvation is of the LORD. Salvation is in CHRIST alone, in Grace alone, in Faith alone, in Scripture alone and to the Glory of God alone and nothing else.

    John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath set me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last. KJV
    John 6: 65 Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my father. KJV

    John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow me. KJV Read John 10, matter fact read the whole book of JOHN.
    We should not listen to the voice of strangers, especially false teachers.

    Benjamin Creme of Share International is talking about the appearing of the New Age Messiah and you need to listen to this: If this does not shake you, I do not know what will. I will post two links: Keep in mind that Benjamin Creme is a very dangerous man. Listen carefully!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and with caution.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FvA6BbMeb0 This is a CNN commerical. I did see this star back in Dec 2oo8 and so did my husband. I knew the star was weird looking and really big. I did not know what it was until I found this commerical. Also, here is an article written by Paul Proctor (Who is a true believer) He write this article concerning this commerical. Link http://www.newswithviews.com/PaulProctor/proctor169.htm Next link and please listen to everything this man says because I have heard all this stuff before.

  53. Teresa says:

    @ Melinda

    Here is a great article from let us reason ministries please read this very carefully.

    This is about Maiterya the new age messiah and the false prophecy that Benny Hinn made that Jesus was going to appear.

  54. Carolyn says:

    What’s in a name? Mostly our identity, I guess. We’ve learned lately, that Eli is really Eileen and goes by Ellie and Melinda and Emily are the same but different. I answer to anything that sounds like Carolyn…Carol, Caroline, etc. But some people do have a favourite. Like the lady who told me, “Could you please tell your husband NOT to call me Pat…my name is Patricia!” So I’ve been meaning to ask you Kate…do you like Kate or K because you sign off as K….my mom went by K so I was just wondering.

  55. Grant says:

    If god tv is still on it was all a hoax/marketing/gimmick to begin with that they knew about and worked out with the sat company to solicit funds

    a debacle

  56. Lovetruthmorethangifts says:

    I find it really sad that some people cannot understand how much some of us have suffered at the hands of false teachers. I know people who have committed suicide. Some have lost their homes and jobs, their mental sanity and even their salvation. I know some people who were told by their leaders to remortgage their homes, to make loans to “sow seed”, to “quit work” and come work for them for free, things like that. You never get a chance to hear God for yourself, it’s always all about the leader. The mind control has sent many people off the deep end. You don’t function as a human being but as a machine, go on Facebook. Befriend some of those people and you’ll see a subculture emerge, a certain way of talking and interacting. It’s very strange, it’s all about “going to the next level”, making more money, becoming more prominent, it’s just all works, works, works. Restlesness, lack of peace. Also, everyone rehashes the same scriptures over and over again in the same way. REASONING has become a sin worse than adultery. You dare to reason and look at historical facts for examples or even plain Bible facts…and you’re a “doubter”. You see a bunch of clones not being able to have a deep personal relationship to God but only to the leader. Very sad condition. Many times JESUS has sent warnings but they do not listen. Those movements will die. If you have a wife, will you allow for long to see someone abuse her? Well those people abuse the bride of Christ. Make no mistake, God is forgiving and slow to anger and giving them to repent but time is short. I heard God myself. For 2 years now, everyday God shows me scriptures about ‘FALSE PROPHETS’ in the word of God. Some do not understand the level of PAIN, TORTURE and distress those so-called preachers and prophets have made a lot of us go through. Are they blind? Yes and no.
    Time is short, God will come and bring SHEPHERDS AFTER GODS OWN HEART.

  57. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    You’re right about the fig tree, Carloyn–you bet, my husband and I keep our eye on Israel. I completely agree that the world is just looking, desperately for hope, unfortunately all in the wrong places.

    You are too precious–how wonderful that you even care about a name. Actually, it’s Katherine…I guess I use K because it’s simpler, and a sort of online sign-off –who knows, but mostly Kate is fine, Kathy, Katy–whatever suits you and everyone–just follow the new pink heart elephant eared, chicken thing monster icon and you’ll find me.

    You say your mom went by K. God bless her, is she still with us ? Kate

  58. Carolyn says:

    Teresa, interesting post. It’s amazing to see how this gradual conditioning has succeeded in making the world COMFORTABLE with the whole supernatural phenomenon…crop circles, stars, UFOs, and this “share” and “oneness” talk. Wow. We are at the point when no one would bat an eyelid if a spaceship landed and out walked Jesus Christ in the form of Maitraya. Maybe an eyebrow raised momentarily here or there, but quickly accepted as normal.
    What a sad state for a man to be yoked to a demon that is leading him and his followers into such a deep deception! And not just this false prophet, but everyone who participates in these Satanic lies of universalism.

    It is comforting to know that we are guided, not by a star, but by God himself
    Proverbs 4:18-19
    18 The PATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS is like the first gleam of dawn,
    shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
    19 THE WAY OF THE WICKED IS LIKE DEEP DARKNESS;
    they do not know what makes them stumble.
    Psalm 23:2-4
    3 he restores my soul.
    HE GUIDES ME IN PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE
    4 Even though I walk
    through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

  59. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    Lovetruth… you said a mouthful–it’s a script I tell you, and some of us are fools to follow the “Mad Director”. Crazy stuff and the lies keep perpetuating over and over and over. K

  60. Melinda LeBlanc says:

    Chrystal…. My Sisters name is Emily Kennerson… She is married to Wayne Kennerson. On a recent visit to my home we were having a discussion about GodTV and I mentioned this page. I told her I had it saved on my computer under favorites she should check it out… (I was finishing up dinner at the time!)… I would like you to clear this up because as I am sure you are aware the accusation you posted online dimenished any ability to have an Honest debate on these differances. I would like you to note such assumptions are much the reasons so many speak against other Christians on this site. I would like you to Really take an honest look at this thread and see how people with different opinions are treated. I wont be commenting anymore and so its fine if you keep me silenced. I just cant help to find the irony in my defending other Christians reputatations while my own was so easily tossed aside. I would have thought I would have deserved the respect of you sending me an email if there was a question. I thought I could maybe help bring people together but it seems that there is a deeper reason for this animosity. If you go to Facebook and search my name…. you will find me and on my friends list you will see my Beloved Little Sister Emily whom I prayed for in church at 8 yrs old because I really needed help with all those brothers. I truly Love all of you and will pray that God would help me better find away to get my point across. I just wanted you all to understand we cant treat people this way in his Jesus’s name. Thanks for your time, Melinda LeBlanc

    • Melinda,

      Thank you for that explanation and please accept my sincere apology. I’ve had things like “double-posters” happen before in the past and can say with all honesty that I truly believed that was what happened here. Since I wrongly accused you, I ask for your forgiveness. I lumped you in with a lot that you didn’t belong in and I regret that.

      Now to the matter at hand…You think the false teachers we speak against are the victims here? You are castigating us for speaking out against those wolves in our midst, but have no knowledge of what it’s like to be where I am. As far as I can see no one here has threatened these false teachers with death, but my own death has been prophesied in very graphic detail. We don’t laugh with glee at the thought of one of them perishing, yet I’ve had charismatic followers accuse me of blaspheming and then they’ve even predicted my early death – and they seemed content with the prospect of that actually happening. Yes, I’ve been the subject of much of the behavior you are accusing me of. Yet, the only thing I can do is hold fast to God’s indisputable and infallible Word and keep on going.

      I and the people on this site are not ogres, but are passionate about contending for the faith once for all handed down to the saints. That won’t change. There is no problem with you defending Christian reputations if the reputations you are defending are truly Christian. What becomes problematic is when you defend and protect the wolves instead of the sheep – when you do that you are protecting the wolves so they can go on killing the defenseless sheep, and that must never be so. We choose to side with the sheep and sound the alarm when a wolf enters the flock, at least that way the sheep can get clear of them and flee to safety.

  61. Ruitje says:

    @Teresa, I watched the video from Creme and I noticed something strange: in the audience I saw that some people were wearing masks…

  62. Carolyn says:

    Melinda, many of us on this site have walked where you are walking right now…me personally for 40 some odd years. We know what blindness is and deception is. Your treatment of the gospel is like… ok got it…now let’s move on. That’s not it.
    There are depths of riches and wisdom of God in Christ that you will totally miss by building an earthly kingdom
    There is an everyday, crucified walk in the Spirit through suffering and his transforming work in our hearts when we are involved in mystical practices
    There is an ever deeping appreciation of the gospel for it is the POWER to transform us step by step which we miss when we are so taken up with going beyond what the Word says into our own paths of redemption and social transformation
    And there are the plans and the purposes of God that we totally miss as we are so driven on our own purposes
    That’s enough for now…but believe me, 40 years in the wilderness of deception was enough for me…I am now ready for the Truth to take root and grow in my heart. I am finished with the many pathways of mysticism. They are worldly, satanically inspired deceptions. God is enough for me.
    God Bless. We love you and want the best for you…God’s best, not our own ideas but his!

  63. Carolyn says:

    oops…correction – There is an everyday, crucified walk in the Spirit through suffering and his transforming work in our hearts when we are involved in mystical practices
    meant to say…we will miss when we are involved in mystical practices

  64. Carolyn says:

    ok, Kate it is. My mom was Katherine too. And she is no longer with us…she has blown this popsicle stand!
    love to all, Sweet Caroline (that’s one I get quite often, thanks to Neil Diamond)

  65. Teresa says:

    @ Carolyn
    It concerns me, most of us on this thread was deceived by this chacters or jokers. I was guilty for seeking for signs and wonders, and manifestations just like everyone else, without knowing the truth of God’s word for myself.
    I am not posting this to get on a Benjamin Creme or Maitreya kick. This is to help
    people who defend false teachers and false prophets like Wendy and Rory, Todd Bentley, Benny Hinn and many more, who prophecy things like Jesus to appear on stage i person or in their crusades.
    Read the post from let us reason ministries. The part that really caught my eye was when this article said that; Maitreya says he can appear in different forms to different people, so can he look like Jesus to the Christian, and Buddha to the Buddist, ect.
    Here is another link from Let us Reason by Mike Oppenheimer called “Maitreya the Betrayer” http://www.letusreason.org/nam15.htm
    Here is another quote from Creme: from the article
    Who is the Maitreya? We are told by Creme, Maitreya’s the one expected by followers of all religions alike.

    He has been expected for generations by all of the major religions Christians know Him as the Christ, and expect His imminent return. Jews await Him as the Messiah; Hindus look for the coming of Krishna; Buddhists expect Him as Maitreya Buddha; and Muslims anticipate the Imam Mahdi or Messiah. ” He’s everything to everyone.

    If Satan can transform himself into an angel of light, what else can he transform himself into.

    This scripture means alot to me My sheep hear my voice, I know them and they follow me. John 10:27

    Love you guy’s.

  66. Teresa says:

    My computer was having issues , I got that fixed but now it is me because sometimes I do not make since. I hope I do not confuse you guy’s with what I write.

    I meant to say in the sixth line from the top that “who prophecy things like Jesus to appear in person on stage”

    I hope I make since to you guy’s. I am not as skilled in writing as some of the rest of you are. God Bless

  67. Carolyn says:

    Teresa, reading your heart and your testimony to Christ is always a pleasure. Don’t worry about a few mistakes. We’re good at reading between the lines, unless you leave out whole phrases like I just did.
    Keep exposing evil and cheering for the Truth! Praise Jesus!

  68. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    Hi sweet Caroline–mama has gone on– and how blessed I am to have her name and imilarities– I hope that it would be a comfort to you –if I had that similarity, I would ceretainly feel special and I do. God id a good God , Carolyn, He gives us little surprises to give us comfort and strenght. Good night sweet sister, K xxx ooo

  69. Carolyn says:

    Kate: Yes, God is so good to us…we never lack for blessings when we look around and begin to count them.
    Mark 3:34-35
    34Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! 35Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”
    My cup overflows!

  70. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    We sound like a woman’s club here lately–Hi Carolyn– Teresa, and guys too –hey we’re in the same group. Sometimes we type too fast and press enter too fast; looks as though my spelling left for Mars or somewhere out there when I wrote that previous response, I’m embarrassed–see, I get, like, blind and goofy at night, and I’m such a freak-out for good grammar and perfection, too– I guess humility is good, yes?

    Oh well, I must trust you guys, that’s good news! I sound like an illiterate buffoon–ya gotta laugh–so now you all see my heart, which is I want the best for you all and pray our God becomes real– and do not care if I make some mistakes which is peace within– that is a release… have a good one, K

  71. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    Chrystal– your answer to Melinda was poignant. I was touched with your honesty and bravery.

    Melinda, be aware– you can love but do not allow your heart to be swayed, protect it and guard it lest the wolves would come and tear it to pieces!

    We cannot be fools and swayed by every wind of doctrine. God bless you. K

  72. Caleb says:

    Wow I am totally at a loss for words. I just happend to stumble onto this site and I can not believe what I am reading. Who are we to judge anyone? You do not know the heart of any of the ministers onGod TV or any other Christian channel. The devil is rubbing his hands together laughing at all of this. I am so sorry for all of you that this kind of debate would even take place among “Christians”. This whole thing is about doctrine who is right and who is wrong. We should be lifting each other up rather than tear down anyone. We all need to focus on lost souls not judging each other. The devil will try anything to cause trouble among us and he has been successful here. If anyone on God TV is a false prophet they will answer to God not us. Pray for them dont accuse them. When you accuse them you become a tool of the enemy. If you dont like what God TV broadcasts then dont watch it. Anything that lifts up the name of Jesus is better than anything the world has to offer. Dont focus on what someone says we are human and we make mistakes. Thank you for allowing me to speak my mind.

  74. Grant says:

    We all need blogs like this to help us to stop and think

  75. Dear Caleb (stumble upon)…
    To answer your question… if it is a question and not a statement…
    “Who are we to judge anyone?” That question needs to be answered with a question, have you not read the Bible?
    Then you state, “You do not know the heart of any of the ministers onGod TV or any other Christian channel.”
    Again, if you have read the Bible, you either have skipped over passages like (Matthew 7:15-16 ) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. ..”
    Or you are intentionally ignoring the responsibility that the Bible DOES say that we have.
    There are 2 kinds of sins, the sin of commission (doing) and the sin of omission (ignoring responsibility).
    Caleb, there are many more places in the Bible where God tells us our responsibility to flush out false prophets, i fact Jesus spent more time preaching and warning about false prophets than any other sin.
    As far as knowing their heart, we can see their fruits, not an isolated incident, but week after week, clamoring for the money in the name of “jesus”.

    I don’t “go by” Ellie, that’s just how my family and friends pronounce it. I do, and always have spelled it “Eli” because that’s how my mother spelled it. What’s in a name? LOL! :)

  77. “Heart” … Allow me to maybe make a better answer to the statement “You do not know the heart of any of the ministers onGod TV or any other Christian channel.”

    Perhaps not..
    However it is not their “heart” we are discerning or making a judgment on…
    It is their so-called ministries…
    The ministries that the so-called “christian TV” (small “c” intended), puts out, is quite trashy.
    The statement was also made, “Anything that lifts up the name of Jesus is better than anything the world has to offer”… Paul answered that in Galatians where false gospels were supposedly “lifting up the name of Jesus”… But what does God have to say about that… does He say as long as it trys to lift up Jesus name?
    No…
    (Galatians 1:8 ) “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.”

    So strictly speaking not of what we can judge in a mans heart, but the content of what is being preached, it is God who will judge the man and his heart, but we who should be judging the content of the message that is being preached…

    The passage quoted above in full context reveals that the people were being easily deceived and were quickly deserting the Gospel that was preached (the one in the Scriptures) and were accepting a false Gospel, that still taught Jesus was good, but was twisting the truth…

    (Galatians 1:6-9)
    I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.

    There is no sin in examining what is being preached to see if it is true, but there is a sin of omission if you fine that what is being preached as Gospel, is a different Gospel and ignore it.

  78. Rev's Kate & Rich M. says:

    Caleb–no–“anything” that lifts up the name of Jesus is not better than what the world has to offer, it is as bad, really worse, and off as one can get. Do not be deceived, God will not be mocked. We must in these dire times grow up in the Word– enough “Pollyanna Christianity”.

    “You are the light of the world”, (Matthew 5:14); shine the beacon and sound the alarm–with that is a responsibility to teach others the truth of God’s word. We are to live only by the word of God–in prayer and supplication, God will answer us and we will know Him, He is faithful.

    The problem with half-truths and “almost there theology”, is that the true God is misrepresented; therefore, lies from hell creep in– identical to the Garden of Eden’s conversation between Satan (the father of deceit) with God’s first creation, Adam and Eve– the tumbling fall begins and here we are today.

    Now, please re-think your position and stance. Ask, seek and knock as God will not fail you in your quest for the truth, in love– above all, love one another– and God does loves you, Caleb; He does not want His precious little lambs to be emotionally and spiritually murdered, which the wolves will do.

    I promise you, you will not be disappointed when the level of your understanding rises above where you are right now–do not allow fuzzy, fluffy feelings to hinder your awareness of a devastating ploy by Satan to kill, steal and destroy.

    What a joy to be released from manipulating ministries– a breath of fresh air and a rest for the weary soul in the arms of the Savior of mankind who died for you and me, Caleb.

    “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life…” You have not stumbled here, my friend, but our Father has brought you here as He will keep directing your paths, ” ‘Your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.’ ” ( Matthew 6:8).

    Now go– you have been called as a watchman, and to preach the real Christ to a lost and dying world–wear your armor and wield your sword to cut to the marrow, deeply to where God yearns to dwell.

    God’s best always,
    Kate

    Hello Caleb,

    You asked “Who are we to judge anyone?”

    Then you proceeded to judge the blogger and the commenters here. Questioning and even judging their faith. Some would consider that as hypocrisy.

    You are using Matthew 7 out of context.

    Actually we are COMMANDED to identify and warn people about the false prophets such as those portrayed on GodTV. To condone this behavior is to disobey God.

    I am learning so much. Thank you! I’ve wrestled with the guilt that the enemy tries to impose on me for judging what I see & hear from different pastors. I know I don’t need to accept that guilt, but it’s sometimes a battle in the mind. All these scriptures you guys are sharing, I need to study. Weapons of our warfare…hehe :)

    Teresa no I am not the same Caleb you ran into before. This is actually the first post I have ever made on anything like this. Michael Adams When I said I stumbled upon this site that is exactly what I meant. I was looking up on the internet why DTV was dropping God TV and I saw this site so I clicked on it. Ok this will be my last post on this site. Someone said something about you judge these ministries by their fruit. Well the many many many salvations that are because of these “false ministries” counters anything that anyone has said on this forum. All I can say is we will all answer to God and I pray for all of your sakes you have been right because I wouldnt want to face the punishment for touching God’s annointed.

  82. Teresa says:

    @ Cabel You may not see this but I pray you do.

    You fear “man” more, than you fear “God” Wide gate vs narrow gate. Many will enter the wide gate that leads to distruction and few will find the narrow gate that leads to life. Caleb, which gate have you entered. It is apparent to me that you did not read not one of those scriptures, not one. You better run for you live especially your eternal life. You will not score point with God for protecting those jokers.
    I pray that the LORD opens your eyes for you sake. God bless.

    The push comes to shove in the SECRET PLACE of God TV. The unresponded too emails, however nice the Staff are, the absolute contempt in which the Pastoral and Healing Ministries of the Church are held by God TV and their American Dominionist NAR Prophetic.
    God TV feels constantly active, never resting, with no pastoral healing thing. OK folks have come to know the Lord but that isn’t enough to justify it’s existence.
    God TV also clamp down on Free Speech by issuing DCMA notices against those who criticise them and or point out scandals. This is the Enemy at work and we need the Protection and discernment of True Shepherds and the Good Shepherd to protect us against the likes of God TV who too easily seduce by CCM, Evangelism etc when their true [hidden] agenda/s are not by and large discerned.

  84. YoFriend says:

    Wow, i am waiting for you to scream hail satan… or.. rather i am definitely seeing you praising god for satanic victories – screwed up pseudochristians…

    • YoFriend….

      Would you tell me why we are “screwed up pseudochristians?”

      You say we are praising God for Satanic victories. How so? Don’t just hurl insults, tell us, Scripturally, why you believe we are doing so.
