Pointing Fingers Is Not Christian

'The Dangers of Tuning into Andrew Wommack,' is not my article, nor my opinion. Nor am I taking sides or judging the author of said article in question. However, after careful consideration, I do wish to point out a few things regarding this type of Christian pride, attack actually, that has and will continue to weaken the Christian faith, not strengthen it, unless we quickly dump the pride that precedes every man's downfall.

The Christian must know that this sort of attack is all too common, and primarily responsible for where we are today. This comes from the limitations placed upon ourselves as a result of denominational pride that is not scriptural, but rather of the devil, to destroy the Christian faith from within. It fulfills Galatians 5:4, with performance based Christianity teaching, that we still have to earn God's blessings, which is not grace. It fulfills Galatians 5:15 by the likes of the article in question, which is demonic to the core, pitting Christians against each other.

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life - John 10:10

To open this article with the words 'doctrinally aberrant' is a little drastic, considering the point is evident, as one leader choosing a stronger faith over another, identifying the challenge against Word of Faith Theology - another title and reason to segregate out of pride; I believe and do not doubt in the inerrant and infallible living word of the living God, because of Mark 11:24, so does this make me a Word of Faith weirdo, being aberrant?

Until this article was referenced to me, I never heard of Andrew Wommack, or the EQUIP/Blog, and quite frankly, Word of Faith Theology, as my concern stands fast with doing the work of Jesus Christ Living God, and not concerned about what everyone else is doing wrong amidst my perfection, not! If something isn't in the living word, sixty-six books only, not seventy-three, the Holy Bible, then I'm not interested. I teach and do things according to my faith, led by the Holy Spirit, being saved by faith, not by works.

We must stop this Christian abuse, and be concerned about the log in our own eye, and not the speck in someone else's - God's got this - He knows all things, right!

For lack of faith, choosing for whatever reason, to believe less by faith than another, this article states, "Word of Faith teachers twist Scripture to support the occult belief that faith is a force, words are containers of the force, and through faith-filled words we can speak things into reality." So then, Jesus is a liar, when He says, "I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours."? In other words - BELIEVE AND DO NOT DOUBT!

Did God not speak our world into being from nothing. Did He not speak what was not, as though it were, and so it became? Of course He did! Logically speaking, yes, we are not God, but with Christ within us, we can do all things in and through Him (Philippians 4:13). Greater is He in us than he or anything coming against us in this world (1 John 4:4).

Have Christian leaders abused Mark 11:24? Absolutely, but only because they choose to see the living word as a crystal ball, and not according to real faith, knowing and understanding that God's will be done, not our will be done; God's plan, not our plan; God's understanding, not our understanding; God's timing, not our timing.

We have not for we ask not, and we do not receive because of our own selfish motives (James 1 / James 4 (vs 2-3/7).

And who am I, or yourself, to be swayed off track, concerned about something we cannot fix and that God already knows about, and will fix according to His perfect timing and plan? We are called according to 2 Timothy 3:16 (key words 'ALL SCRIPTURE') to correct and direct yes, but should we not set our priorities to teach and coach our own body of believers, first and foremost, to strengthen them that they will believe and not doubt, and not live with unnecessary worry, fear, and doubt, just as Jesus teaches us in the likes of Mark 11:24, Matthew 21:22, Mark 9:23, or John 14:13 as mere examples?

In Mark 9:38-40 we read: "38 John said to Jesus, “Teacher, we saw someone using your name to cast out demons, but we told him to stop because he wasn’t in our group. ”39 “Don’t stop him!” Jesus said. “No one who performs a miracle in my name will soon be able to speak evil of me. 40 Anyone who is not against us is for us."

Verses 39 & 40 above are clear that all in Christ have a place, whether we are Andrew Wommack, Kenneth Copeland, myself, or John MacArthur, whom along with David Platt, are in regular fellowship with the Muslim Brotherhood, as terrible as the latter may be - but God knows all our errors and will refine or otherwise, according to His plan, not ours!

Christians, leadership especially, must be more concerned and interested in fulfilling our purpose in Christ, trusting by faith alone for every step and thought, and every action, rather than concern over others and issues that we have no power nor ability to change, that all leads to merely weakening the faith, rather than strengthening the faith.

Considering 'ALL SCRIPTURE' as relevant, and the phrase 'Word of Faith,' is based on the living word that will not fail us (Luke 1:37), while knowing we are saved by faith, not by works, let us ponder the following KISS principle simple analogy for the benefit of Christian unity:

We can know from the living word that at salvation, placing our trust in Jesus Christ, author of life, promised Messiah, Savior of the world, as our personal Lord & Savior, that we have been predestined, chosen to live on even though we die, going from being an enemy of God, to receiving His glory as a child of God, to being His ally; His friend; having Jesus as our brother; and our joint heir in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Therefore, with said knowledge, a joyous benefit for all who choose Jesus as Savior, no matter the denomination or otherwise, embracing also the fact that Jesus cannot/would not lie 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 - and that His word is provably inerrant and infallible, then how can we, or why would we, continue lowering the faith, belittling the living word with such attacks, when additionally, such verses as the following, further strengthen rather than weaken our faith?

1 Peter 2:24 - ALREADY HEALED - "He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed." *** (Already healed, NOT going to be healed - we believe and do not doubt - on Jesus' terms - His will not our will be done.)

Hebrews 10:10 - ALREADY SANCTIFIED - "For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time." *** ()

Galatians 3:14 - ALREADY REDEEMED - "Through Christ Jesus, God has blessed the Gentiles with the same blessing he promised to Abraham, so that we who are believers might receive the promised Holy Spirit through faith." *** (Justified by faith in Christ, with all past, current, and future sins forgiven at salvation, never to be remembered again, by faith)

John 10:10 - ALREADY PROSPEROUS - "The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life." *** (This is not specifically about money {riches & prosperity}, but can be - believe and do not doubt - God's will, not our will - but faith is about believing in what God's word tells us, once, or many times.)

Matthew 8:17 - This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said, “He took our sicknesses and removed our diseases.” *** (Prophecy fulfilled - that Jesus would take to the cross 'all sickness and disease' - He would rise from the dead, while all sickness & disease would remain in the grave - faith at work - believe and do not doubt - Mark 11:24)

Psalm 91 - "Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty." *** (We in Christ are invincible as we believe and do not doubt, understanding, His will, not our will be done. It is our living God, Jesus Christ Living God, who holds the power of life and death in His hands {Luke 12:5}. We can defeat virus and plague on faith alone, for God tells us so and His word does not lie, the more we believe and do not doubt.

On the PlanDemic topic alone, the above scriptures would have strengthened believers, rather than having them bow to demonic mandates, and/or permitted poison to be injected into their bodies; NUTS for lack of faith!

The depth of our faith must be left to the individual believer who has placed their faith in Jesus, and not for anyone else to dictate or propagate, other than to encourage to consider the power of God's word when we get serious about God, reading it for ourselves.

Up until a few short years ago, knowing something was missing in my life, following thirty-five plus years of study and research, God called me on my own self-righteous spirit, pointing me to Isaiah 7:9b {Unless your faith is firm, I cannot make you stand firm}. He then placed me in front of three gravely attacked leaders, proving to me, that they were not the one's doing wrong, but fellow Christians and myself, were the guilty parties.

I was stuck in the grace for salvation alone crowd, missing the fact that I was already healed, sanctified, redeemed, and prosperous, leaving those I was teaching, including myself, with unnecessary worry, fear, and doubt that comes for lack of knowledge - the blind leading the blind - which was and remains an undeniable and serious flaw within the church today.

So, if faith, as in believe and do not doubt no matter what, is not a force, and the words we use from God's living word are not capable of moving mountains using bold faith, as in Mark 11:24, then the reason I left orthodox teaching because it was telling me Jesus did not turn water into wine, but grape juice, is also flawed - seriously - leaving Jesus, where?
