Paw Creek Ministries Note: "The majority of the information contained in this article was taken from Trinity Broadcast Network telecasts. I personally listened to every word from the voices of each person quoted in this article." Senior Editor.

If there is one thing certain about Paul and Jan Crouch, it is that nothing is certain. Whether the guest of Trinity Broadcast Network is a religious leader who is fairly fundamental in doctrine or a "way-out" person who says almost nothing that makes Biblical sense, they both are welcomed and applauded as great teachers. For one hour of the "Praise The Lord" show, you may hear someone trusted by much of the church world, preaching the Truth, but the next hour hear the babble of Kim Clement. Theology, or Biblical truth, is just not important to TBN.

TBN Is Religious Entertainment

In fact, Paul Crouch calls Biblical theology "doo-doo". On a Praise The Lord telecast, he shouted, "Let Him (God) sort out all this doctrinal doo-doo, I don't care about it". He apparently hates no one worse than those he calls "heresy hunters". On another occasion he spoke to his worldwide audience by stating, "Heretic hunters, those guys who spend their lives straightening us all out doctrinally, they are going to go straight to hell." (You could hear Jan laughing approvingly on the set.)

Here are a man and woman that controls the message about the Word of God and the airing of the messages of the most noted televangelists to the greatest single audience in the world, yet they hate correction and Biblical reproof. Listen to God's warning:

"Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die." [Prov 15:10]

This is a formula for spiritual disaster and that is what is already occurring. When Crouch, Hinn, and Copeland are displaying such a hatred for anyone who will dare Biblically reprove them, God's correction, when it comes, will be both "grievous" and "deadly".

Now listen to three additional statements that show Paul Crouch's disdain for anyone that dares to question the messages of his guests on Trinity Broadcast Network

Transcribed From Trinity Broadcasting Network "Praise The Lord" Show:

* "I refuse to argue any longer with any of you out there. Don't even call me if you want to argue doctrine, If you want to straighten somebody out over here, if you want to criticize Kenneth Copeland for his preaching on faith of Dad Hagin, get out of my life. I don't ever want to talk to you or hear, I don't want to see your ugly face."

* "I think they are damned and on their way to hell and I don't think there is any redemption for them. I say, 'to hell with you'."

* "I say, 'Get out of God's way, quit blocking God's bridges (Apparently, he defines God's bridges as the One World Church and Ecumenism of the coming Kingdom of Antichrist).

* "God Is going to shoot you if I don't"

What Do Paul And Jan Really Believe?

Either they do not know what they believe or they do not care. Their guests present some of the wildest possible heresies that can possibly be spread to a gullible audience. Two of their newest stars/idols are Phil Munsey and Kim Clement. The mainstays of the last five to twenty years have come from well-known Tel-evangelists that continually teach questionable doctrines that have already destroyed a multitude of believers. We want to simply provide quotes from TBN telecasts and their guests and then compare those quotes to the light of clear biblical truth. The picture that will emerge will represent some of the absolute darkest heresies available in the christian church world. The problem is that these TBN people -- whose actual words you will read -- are not called cultic, or unchristian. They operate in the supposedly sane world of true Christianity. You must let God's Word help you recognize the truth. Your spiritual life and your eternal destiny are absolutely at stake.

The "Force Of Faith" Vs. The "Faith Of Our Fathers"

Nothing we discuss in this article is more important than this definition of faith - saving faith. God is either the Sovereign and Eternal God that has revealed Himself in His book of faith (The Holy Bible) or He is a pagan god that operates much like Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Paul Crouch, and others describe. Listen carefully to this explanation of TBN faith.

* Kenneth Copeland: "The force of faith is in the spiritual realm a great deal like certain forces in the natural realm. It is a spiritual force, like gravity is a natural force, and electricity is a natural force of power."
* Paul Crouch: "A measurable natural force."
* Kenneth Copeland: "It's a measurable force, it's conductible, it's perceptible to the touch... Faith is a spiritual tone, it's perceptible,.. . It is a tangible force, it's an invisible force, so is gravity, but it is there."
* Paul Crouch: "So is electricity.. Does God use faith?"
* Kenneth Copeland: "Surely."
* Paul Crouch: "...See, here is the sore spot. There are those who say..."
* Jan Crouch: "Not with him." (speaking of Copeland)
* Paul Crouch: "Not with you." (lots of laughter follows)
* Jan Crouch: "Not with God."
* Kenneth Copeland "..the fact. No, I'm not sore at God at all and I don't think He's sore at me. . .1 haven't done anything to Him."
* Paul Crouch: ".. . The critics say God is God, He doesn't have to have faith; He doesn't exercise faith. He doesn't use faith. He's God. He's the object of faith."
* Kenneth Copeland: "...Wait a minute, what does that mean? Object of faith. I don't know what that means."
* Jan Crouch: "I don't either."

Can you believe the Biblical ignorance on display with the "Reverend" Ken Copeland and Jan Crouch, as they admit they do not understand what "Object of faith" means? It means the Person to Whom we direct our faith! God is that Object, because He alone is Worthy, Omnipotent, Eternal, and Omniscient. We direct our "saving faith" to Jesus Christ alone, for He alone is worthy and He alone is the One to Whom God the Father has entrusted all matters of judgment and reward [John 5:22]

What Does The Bible Say About Faith?

The definition of Biblical faith has no kinship to this "Force of Faith" espoused by Copeland, and Paul and Jan Crouch. In the above statement by Kenneth Copeland, God is said to use faith just like Copeland uses faith. Faith ceases to be the lofty and eternal truth forever settled in the Heavens and established by an eternal God that is Himself the Object our faith. But, to TBN, this faith becomes a formula or a New Age force that is a pagan idea, clearly akin to the many teachings of the occult.

In fact, Copeland's teaching is straight from Antichrist! Listen:

The new religion of the Antichrist is prophesied to be a religion of "forces". Daniel prophesied this clear warning.

"But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things." (Daniel 11:38)

To even suggest faith as a "force" is to deny God as an eternal being to whom we turn in truth and faith for all our sufficiency, and for our solid hope of eternal life in Heaven. It actually reduces God to the level of man. Real faith is clearly seen in Apostle Paul's beautiful description to the Hebrews. Listen to his biblical statement of faith:

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

"Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11: 1,3,6).

In true Faith God is the "Absolute, the Eternal Sovereign God" in whom we rest all our hopes.

This our greatest assurance! Doctrines are the anchor of our soul, especially as we face eternity! To deny key doctrines is to take away our greatest single source of assurance and spiritual confidence! Why would any leader want to take away precious spiritual confidence in our eternal destiny by repudiating key doctrines of the Faith?

Copeland: God Is The Biggest "Failure" In The Bible

When you join together the concept of faith as a "force" with a God that became the biggest failure in the universe, you are laying the foundation for a "pagan cult" or a "paranormal religion".

Listen to this TBN telecast where biblical doctrines are cast to the wind:

* Kenneth Copeland: "I was shocked when I found out who the biggest failure in the Bible actually is."
* Paul Crouch: "Okay."
* Kenneth Copeland: "You know everybody you ask, you say, 'Who's the biggest failure?' They say, 'Judas' Somebody else will say, 'No,! believe it was Adam.' Well, how about the devil?"
* Paul Crouch: (Sound of amazement)
* Kenneth Copeland "He's the most consistent failure.., but he's not the biggest in terms of material failure and so forth. The biggest in the whole Bible is God.. . . Wait, wait. Don't you turn that set off. You listen to us. I told you... . Now, you sit still a minute. You know me well enough to know I wouldn't tell something I can't prove by the Bible.

"He lost His top ranking of His most anointed angel, the first man He ever created, the first woman He ever created, the whole earth and all the fullness therein, a third of the angels at least. That's a big loss, man! I mean, you figure up all of that, that's a lot of real estate, gone down the drain. Now, the reason you don't think of God as a failure, He never said He's a failure. (Paul Crouch and others laughing on the set.) And you are not a failure until you say you are one."

This definition of "failure" is ridiculous. A person is a failure if they do not reach a certain standard set beforehand. This definition of "failure" is at least as ridiculous as the statement said to me one day by a salesman trying to convince me it was just fine to lie to my clients.

"David, it is not a lie if, when you say it, you are smiling." You laugh at this nonsense, but Copeland's definition of a "failure" is just as ridiculous.

Does The Bible Suggest That God Was A Failure?

Our Sovereign God created us in His image that we might bring honor and glory to Him and have eternal fellowship together. He desired our love and He wanted that love to be our choice. He wanted our obedience, but He wanted that obedience to be our choice. To suggest that God was a failure because Adam and Even made a sinful choice is ridiculous; such error is the kind of disinformation you would expect from the chief enemy of God, Satan himself! Such belief completely alters the entire Biblical account of man's fall, Satan's fall, and the terrible results that occurred. Our world would certainly be a different place if man had not sinned, but not for one moment was God ever a failure. The only failure was found in those that sinned. He never ceased to be the God of His universe or of the spiritual world where His Will is forever being done.

If you believe God was, and is, a failure, you reduce Him to mere man. Therefore, you have instantly obliterated all -- I repeat, ALL -- of the great and precious promises of the Bible! Every single promise relating to Redemption, Justification, Eternal Salvation, "No Condemnation" [John 3:18; Romans 8:1], and so many other promises are instantly obliterated! This belief renders the Bible worthless and invalid. Your study of the Bible and commentaries and good study materials on individual books of the Bible and important topics are now exercises in futility if you believe this nonsense. You gravitate toward "Christian psychology", which is exactly where the Christian Bookstore Industry is languishing right now.

The Biblical account of the years that have transpired since Satan's fall are filled with God's story and the revelations that have never ceased to unfold. King David made it clear who rules this Universe and it has never been the devil. His inspired words speak volumes.

"The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doom; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah." (Psalm 24:1-10)

You have the choice of believing Copeland, the Crouches, TBN, and the Charismatic Movement, or God and His true prophets. Reducing God is a constant theme of these diluted pundits (self-proclaimed authorities), but His majesty is undefeatable.

The foolishness of this crowd gets worse.

The Deity Of The Son Of God In Question

Always, spiritual error is on a downward spiral. Truth ascends and gets richer and sweeter, but error descends and becomes more and more absurd, and more and more bitter. That is clearly the direction of Paul and Jan Crouch. We will see other evidence of that direction in some of the new stars of TBN, but already, the deity of Jesus Christ is under attack. Read carefully the following conversation:

* Kenneth Copeland: "We are still questioning what was said about that prophecy. That prophecy never mentioned the Son of God. Never said anything about the Son of God."
* Paul Crouch: "What did it say?"
* Kenneth Copeland: ' "It said, 'I did not claim to be God'."
* Jan Crouch: (Unintelligible sounds.)
* Kenneth Copeland: "That's all it said."
* Paul Crouch: "In other words, in so many words, you're right, no where in the New Testament did he literally get up..."
* Kenneth Copeland: "...preach and claim that He was God..."
* Paul Crouch: "...and say, 'I am, God.' Did He? I stand corrected."

Here is the apparent "new word of prophecy" that was being discussed by Copeland and Crouch. It is an example of the "new revelations" as being claimed throughout the 'New Wave' so-called revival. Jesus Christ supposedly told Copeland the following "new revelation":

"Don't be disturbed when people put you down and speak harshly and roughly of you. They spoke that way of Me, should they not speak that way of you? The more you get to be like Me, the more they're going to think that way of you. They crucified Me for claiming that I was God. But I didn't claim I was God; I just claimed I walked with Him and He was in Me. Hallelujah." (Kenneth Copeland, "Take Time To Pray," Believer's Voice of Victory, 15, 2 (February 1987): 9)

Did you catch that pertinent phrase from Copeland's "new revelation" from Jesus? Let us read that quote again, as "Jesus" is speaking:

"They crucified Me for claiming that I was God. But I didn't claim I was God; I just claimed I walked with Him and He was in Me." [Emphasis added]

Let us quickly review the many Biblical instances in which Jesus claimed to be God. Notice all these verses are Jesus' Words:

* Jesus calls Himself "I AM" (God's name as He told Moses - Exodus 3:14) -- John 8:58 -- "Before Abraham was, I AM" -- This declaration from Jesus' lips is the absolute strongest declaration Jesus made about being God. Only God is the great "I AM".

* Was Creator God -- John 1:1-3, 15

* Was Equal With The Father -- Matthew 11:27; Proverbs 30:49

* Jesus Is Eternal As Is the Father -- John 1:1-4, 15; 6:62; 8:23, 58; 17:5, 24-25;

* Will Be Exalted In Heaven Equal With The Father -- Like 22:69; 24:26; John 13:31;

* Holiness Equal To God -- Mark 1:24; 4:34, admission by demons; Luke 1:35; John 16:10

* Claims to Be King of Glory -- Matthew 21:5, 31-34; 26:64; 27:11; 28:18; Luke 1:32; 19:27; 22:29-30; John 12:15; 18:37

* Claims To Be The Divine Messiah -- Matthew 26:63-64; Mark 12:35-37; Luke 24:25-27; John 8:14-18

* Claimed Power To Forgive Sins -- Matthew 9:2-6; Mark 2:5-10; Luke 5:20-24; 7:47-50

I could literally fill pages with references demonstrating that Jesus most certainly did make many claims to be God, doing so repeatedly. These Words of Jesus Himself demonstrate the complete and utter bankruptcy of Copeland's "new revelation" and completely proves the unbiblical and spiritually dangerous realm called "New Revelation" or "Prophetic Utterances", or "Word of Prophecy". If you ever followed this nonsense before, you now know the truth, and that truth shall surely set you free!

Here is an additional quote by Copeland, which confirms his belief that Jesus was not God as He appeared on earth.

"What (why) does God have to pay the price for this thing? He has to have a man that is like that first one. It's got to be a man. He's got to be all man. He cannot be a God and come storming in here with attributes and dignities that are not common to man. He can't do that. It's not legal." (Kenneth Copeland, "Question &Answer", Believer's Voice Of Victory 16. 8 (August J, 1988):8, emphasis in original.)

In other words, Kenneth Copeland separates the 100% Divine Jesus from the 100% Human. He is saying Jesus is only human, but not also God.

This is the Biblical definition of Antichrist!! Listen:

"And every spirit which does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, but would ... sever, disunite Him, is not of God, does not proceed from Him. This nonconfession is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world." [1 John 4:3]

Thus, when Kenneth Copeland states that Jesus cannot be all man plus all God, he is speaking from the spirit of Antichrist! Doubt it not! When you watch the video, "Kenneth Hagen: Spirit of the Serpent", you will soon Copeland dancing and jerking and rolling his eyes like you would expect from a man possessed.

Let's read the words of another guest that was also bold enough to deny the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Transcribed From Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Praise The Lord Show":

Joseph Good: "Yeshua (Jesus), we do not see as being God when He walked here on earth. We see a Him as a man."
Guest: "A man anointed by God."
Joseph Good: "A man anointed by God, sent by God to perform a function. Now, in his resurrection..."
Guest: "He's not God."
Joseph Good: "We do not see Him as God. We see Him as a man anointed by God. And that has been restored. There is nothing in the statements of Yeshua, in the statements of the disciples, that would cause one to believe that they were proclaiming that He was deity."

In addition to denying that Jesus ever claimed to be God -- Deity -- this speaker goes more boldly than Copeland into declaring that Jesus was a mere man upon Whom the "Christ Consciousness" spirit fell. Once this spirit fell upon Him, Jesus then became the World Teacher, the Messiah. But, He never was God. This teaching is straight out of the New Age Pit of the Abyss! New Agers believe that the same Christ Conscious Spirit that fell upon Jesus in His time also fell on Buddha in his time and Mohammed in his time, and will also fall upon the coming World Teacher who will call himself Maitreya -- the Biblical Antichrist! Thus, can you see that the teachings of this TBN crowd is purely Antichrist! Doubt it not!! Their own words condemn them.

Copeland: Jesus Became Divine Son Only After He Had Been "Born Again In Hell"

The Copeland, Hagin, Hinn, and Crouch, theology plainly teaches that Jesus was only human in His earthly visit. Paul Crouch makes a statement that Jesus was reincarnated as the Divine Son when He was "born again" in hell. Let's listen to Kenneth Copeland say that God was not the Father of Jesus Christ, that He was an "emaciated (poured out) little wormy spirit.., down in the bottom of that thing (the pit of hell)." Then, we hear Benny Hinn say how Jesus was again with Paul Crouch, adding, "that is when his divinity returned?'

Did you catch that totally blasphemous statement from "Reverend" Kenneth Copeland? He described the glorious Jesus Christ, Eternal God, Creator of the Universe, and Final Judge, in a most disgusting way. Listen again:

Jesus was an "emaciated (poured out) little wormy spirit.., down in the bottom of that thing (the pit of hell)."

If you are a follower of this crowd, you can hear Jesus warn: "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." [Matt 7:16-20]

Copeland Declares Jesus Took On Nature of Satan!

Copeland: "How did Jesus then on the cross say, 'My God!' Because God was not His Father any more. He took upon Himself the nature of Satan. And I'm telling you Jesus is in the middle of that pit. He's suffering all that there is to suffer, there is no suffering left.. . apart from Him. His emaciated, little wormy spirit is down in the bottom of that thing and the devil thinks He's got Him destroyed. But, all of a sudden God started talking."

Now, Copeland has the gall to actually say that Jesus took the nature of Satan! The only reason Jesus could be the Savior of you and me, taking our sins upon Him, was because He was Perfect! God the Father could only accept the sacrificial gift from a Perfect Savior! If Jesus could be soiled in any manner, He would no longer be Perfect and His sacrifice on the Cross would be for nothing. The Bible teaches that Jesus was Perfect to the very end, to the moment He "gave up the ghost" and died in His physical body. Study these Scriptures to see for yourself that Jesus was absolutely perfect!

Benny Hinn then gets into the act of speaking astonishing things against the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, attempting to deny the complete Perfection of Jesus.

Benny Hinn: "Jesus Christ destroyed the power of Satan on earth, but destroyed Satan in the underworld, the Holy Ghost wasn't there. Think about that."
Paul Crouch: "That's when His divinity returned."

To suggest that there was ever a time when Jesus was not Divine is Antichrist heresy, but it fully fits in with Copeland's remarks, above. Now that both Copeland and Hinn have soiled the absolute "Perfections" of Jesus Christ, let us briefly study what the Bible has to say:

Perfections of Jesus

Matthew 27:3-4; Luke 23:41; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 2:10; Isaiah 53:9; 2 Timothy 2:13

Copeland speaks outrageous and astonishing things against the Lord of the Lords and King of Kings -- Jesus Christ. You cannot deny this, with him called Jesus an "emaciated (poured out) little wormy spirit" who is suffering at Satan's hand "down in the bottom of that thing (the pit of hell)." Then, he compounds this blasphemy by saying that Jesus took on the nature of Satan! This is the kind of astonishing blasphemy of which the Bible foretells, as it warns of the coming Antichrist! Listen:

"And the king shall do according to his will; he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished..." [Daniel 11:36; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

Notice that Jesus will not immediately strike such a person dead when he speaks astonishing things against Him, but will actually allow him to "prosper" until "the indignation be accomplished". Today, Copeland, Hagan, Hinn and Crouch of TBN are all prospering, as the money continues to flow in to the organization in copious quantities; but do not be misled into believing that the very presence of the wealth of TBN means that God is present and pleased. No, He is simply allowing the "indignation be accomplished". Then, judgment will flow at the proper time, the time of God's own choosing.

Transcribed From Trinity Broadcasting Networks Praise The Lord Show: Yet More Blasphemy

The Deity Of Man And The Teaching That We Are "Little Gods"

Let's go straight to several statements by Paul Crouch, Benny Hinn, and Kenneth Copeland on this crucial subject. After seeing the denial of Jesus Christ's eternal divinity, it is amazing to hear them elevate man unto a "god" status. From Praise The Lord Show:

Paul Crouch: "He doesn't ever draw a distinction between himself." (Jan Crouch agrees in the background.)
Kenneth Copeland: "Never, never. You never can do that in a covenant relationship."
Paul Crouch: "You know what else that settles then tonight. This hue and cry and controversy that has been spawned by the devil to try and bring dissent within the body of Christ that we are gods. I am a little god."
Kenneth Copeland: "Yes, yes!"
Paul Crouch: "I have His name. I'm one with Him. I'm in a covenant relationship. I am a little god."
Kenneth Copeland: "Critic, you are anything that He is."
Paul Crouch (heard under the worth of Kenneth Copeland): "Critic, be gone."
Paul Crouch: "Yes!" [Emphasis added]

Until reading this quote, I thought only Satanists and New Age adherents believed that all people are "little gods" within. The reason for the occult path is to make it possible for the adherent to steadily and through many steps, "realize his own godhood" that has been with him for all this time. Of course, since the Preacher has told us there is "nothing new under the Sun" [Ecclesiastes 1:9], we must realize this "little gods" belief goes straight back to Satan's original lie to Eve in the Garden of Eden, when he told her --

"For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods..." [Gen 3:5]

Transcribed From Trinity Broadcasting Networks Praise The Lord Show.

Benny Hinn: "Adam was a superbeing when God created Him. I don't know whether people even know this, but he was the first superman that ever lived. (Jan Crouch is heard laughing on the set.) First of all, the Scriptures declare clearly that he had dominion over the fowls of the air, the fish of the sea, which means he used to fly."
Jan Crouch: "Wow!"
Benny Hinn: "Of course, how can you have dominion over the birds and not be able to do what they do?"
Jan Crouch: "Whoa, I mean, wait a minute. Benny, wait a minute."
Benny Hinn: "I'll prove it to you. The word 'dominion' in the Hebrew clearly declares that, if you have dominion over a subject, you can do everything that subject does. In other words, that subject, if it does something that you cannot do, you don't have dominion over it. I'll prove it further. Adam not only flew, he flew to space. He used to be...He,He,He,He,He,He... with one thought He'd be on the moon."

Benny Hinn may have uttered this complete nonsense, content with the knowledge that his listeners did not even know their Bibles, not to mention know how to do a word study using Strongs and other study resources. Let us review Strong's Concordance on the Hebrew meaning of the word, 'dominion', found in Genesis 1:26.

Dominion -- Strong's Number 7287 -- Transliteration: radah -- Phonetic Pronunciation: raw-daw'

Meaning: to rule, have dominion, dominate, tread down -- 1a) (Qal) to have dominion, rule, subjugate -- 1b) (Hiphil) to cause to dominate -- 2) to scrape out as honey out of a hive --2a) (Qal) to scrape, scrape out

The ways in which this word is used in the Bible: rule 13 -- dominion 9 -- take 2 -- prevaileth 1 -- reign 1 -- ruler 1 -- [Total Count: 27]

Now, let us turn to the Key Word Hebrew/Greek Study Bible. Listen to what they say about the meaning of "dominion -- radah: To tread down as a winepress, with the feet; to subdue, subjugate, to crumble, oppress, to walk on a person, to rule, cause to rule, to prevail against, to take possession of honey from a hive, to scrape out. [Page 1659]

Can you see any definition of "radah" that suggests that the person exercising the control over the birds "can do everything that subject does"? What sheer nonsense Benny Hinn is shoveling out to his gullible crowd of followers! He pretends to know Hebrew just because he claims to be Jewish. That is about as logical as a person claiming to speak German just because he is of German descent.

Adam Was A Reproduction of God Himself?

Copeland: "God's reason for creating Adam was His desire to reproduce Himself and in the Garden of Eden, He did that, He was not a little like God, He was not almost like God, he was subordinate to God, even. And Adam was as much like God as you can get ... And I want you to know something. Adam in the Garden of Eden was Cod manifested In the flesh."

Once again, this "new revelation" is sheer nonsense, and totally unbiblical! God simply said, "Let us make man in our image..." [Genesis 1:26] This word, "image" is "tselem", which literally means likeness, resemblance, illusion, a phantom, nothingness." {Key Study Bible, Hebrew/Greek, p. 1653]

In other words, God made man as a faint phantom of His true Self. While God granted unto man the intellectual ability to know right from wrong and to solve problems, He never made man exactly like He was; man was never, ever a "little god", and never, ever a "reproduction" of God.

Does The Scripture Teach The "Little God" Concept?

The answer is obviously, "No!" There are many great truths of Scripture that show our humanity and the hope of a future glorification.
- Presently, We Are Tempted - "My brethren, count It all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience." (James 1:2-3).
- Our Outward Man Perisheth - "For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward {man] is renewed day by day." (II Corinthians 4:16).
- Our Hope Is At The Completion Of Our Earthly Journey - "Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." (1 Peter 1:13).

It is certainly clear that this entire TBN concept is a cheap path to riches and earthly glory. To look for some spiritual benefit in this false doctrine is a total waste of time. The purpose of this false teaching is to create a whole class of "swinging saints living the good life", something akin to the "Beverly Hillbillies". You would think this crowd has been watching too much television. When you look at the real Jesus of Scripture, the prophets and apostles in their suffering and sacrifice, and then return to see Paul and Jan and their fellow travelers in their materialism, it all becomes a flimsy fantasy world of deception. However, flimsy though this deception is to a person thoroughly familiar with Biblical Doctrine, many millions of people worldwide are falling for this spiritual deception, a deception that will lead them directly into an eternal Hell.

Is God Both Male And Female? Androgynous?

The pagan roots of this whole deception are manifest as TBN creates a God who becomes more like Zeus and the pantheon of ancient gods. I have been aware for some time that this entire theological confusion was headed back to its pagan roots. These men and women are clever, but they will eventually become so deluded that their error will show through. Listen as Kenneth Copeland clearly states God is both male and female. Next, listen to Benny Hinn state that women were first created to bear children out of their side; then, he somehow compares this to Jesus and the spear print in His side.

Copeland: "Then, he created Eve out of Adam. Now, actually God didn't name her Eve, Adam named her Eve later. That wasn't her name, her name was Adam-Adam. When God said Adam, they both came. Their authority was one and the same together. They did everything together. They had always been together. Even when she was still part of him, he was as much female as he was male, LIKE GOD IS. And God separated the female part of him and then put them back together. And she was Adam, they were Adam. He was the man, she was the woman. She was the man with the womb."

In one brief few moment, Kenneth Copeland took TBN directly into very dangerous pagan waters, as he teaches that God created Adam and Eve as androgynous beings,. i.e., having both male and female characteristics. Remember our earlier assertion that the theology of TBN and the Crouch's are Greek in nature? In the first paragraph of this section, we mentioned that the 'God' of TBN was more like Zeus of the Greek pantheon. This teaching is straight out of Zeus. Did you know that, in the Zeus mythology, many beings were androgynous? Listen to one author explain:

"In closing I will quote from Plato on what humans once were. It is not actually a belief in origins but in the origins of loneliness and love.
Here is the edited speech at the Banquet by Aristophanes (189e-193b of Plato's Symposium):

"Anciently....the androgynous sex existed...coupled back to back...till jealous Jupiter divided then vertically ...as people cut eggs with hairs...after then, these divided and imperfect folk ran about over the earth ever seeking their lost halves to be joined to them again...and the reason being that human nature was originally one, and the desire and pursuit of the whole is called love....." [http://www.mythome.org/greekorigins.html]

Therefore, Copeland is simply offering a slightly modified version of Plato's lie that Adam and Eve were androgynous originally and were separated by Jupiter, creating an "imperfect race". Copeland modified this teaching simply by saying that Adam and Eve were independently androgynous. Let us examine another source to get yet another aspect of Greek mythology relating to Zeus and androgynous humans.

"Hermaphroditus) Greek androgynous deity. The cult of Hermaphroditos appeared first in Cyprus ... Originally the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. The Naiad Salmakis (associated with a fountain of the same name in Caria, a region of Anatolia) fell so passionately in love with him that their bodies merged into one. In some versions, it was her entreaties to the gods that finally resulted in their becoming one being." [http://mrugala.free.fr/Religions/Divers/Anglais/Gofhe.htm]

This next quote tells you why the Greeks held the androgynous deity in the highest esteem:

"Athena is an odd mixture of both the male and female, yet she is widely loved and accepted by the Greeks ... Her aspect as the goddess of wisdom and Zeus' counselor also shows her androgynous position, as she represents both the male and female, impartial in her justice, resolute in her support ... Athena is an icon, an ideal of virgin perfection; she is a fusion of the martial and intellectual that exemplifies the best of the ancient Greek civilization." [http://www.titan.spaceports.com/~neogeo/athena.html]

Greeks viewed the male/female ideal -- androgyny -- as representing the best characteristics possible because such a union represents the "fusion of the martial and intellectual". As we stated in the top of this article, TBN is "Christian in name without being Christian in theology"; now, we can see that TBN is actually Greek in theology! That is serious, because the greatest Greek leader of all time was Alexander the Great, a type of Antichrist.

Now, let us examine yet one more instance of pagan philosophy as Benny Hinn continues to expound:

"Holy Spirit said something to me and I had to go like a mad man and looking in the Word. He says, 'God's original plan is that the woman was to bring forth children out her other side.' What? You know that there is nowhere in the Bible but where God gives birth out of His side? Jesus gives birth to the church out of His side. Adam gives birth to his wife out of his side. It was sin that turned the thing around. And it was sin that transformed her flesh and her body."

Such an idea is certainly blasphemous. It is exactly the same foolishness that elevates Mary, the mother of Jesus to the state of "The Mother of God." Many writers are beginning to suggest, as Copeland, that God has a dual nature of male and female. The entire new headquarters of Trinity Broadcasting Network is feminine in design. There are female angels guarding the entrance to the television studio. The ceilings are filled with frolicking, mostly nude children. Two pictures of the mother/child deception and one with a feminine face, with two nude young bodies hovering above, line the short hallway leading past the female angels to the studio. The appearance is mythological and pagan, and most definitely not Christian!

The Bible is absolutely clear that God is our Heavenly Father. His nature is divine and eternal and sexual distinctions are non-existent. He created man in His image and then created woman. There are no female angels because the angelic host were created in the image of God before women were created. Women are a unique creation out of man to supply him a help-meet and have absolutely nothing to do with the nature and appearance of God. This false concept of God being both male and female is clearly descending into rank paganism.

God As 'Mother Nature'

As TBN moves to the pagan concept of a dual nature, male and female, supposedly manifest in the Heavenly Father, the results can only lead to more disgusting ideas. The new additional studio of Trinity Broadcasting Network in Hendersonville, TN, is the scene of the following quotes. Jan Crouch appears to be the host of these events, with preachers like Phil Munsey and Kim Clement. On one occasion Phil is preaching and appears to be speaking more from "fertility rites of ancient paganism" than the Bible itself. He states:

Phil Munsey: "There is going to be a paradigm shift in philosophies of men. Mother Earth is 'groaning in travail', laboring pain, ready to give birth to something big and something mighty and wonderful... God is moving -- connect with Him."

As he preaches, he mentions the Buddhists and directs his remarks to them. "Buddhists, I love you much, I'm honored that you are willing to get out of yourself and take a risk and go for something that people used to laugh at. I'm honored that you have enough passion for God to try to connect with something."

This teaching is extremely New Age, so much so that it merges effortlessly and seamlessly into the occult teaching that is preparing the hearts and minds of hundreds of millions of people today for Antichrist. New Age teachers began to preach a "paradigm shift" back in the mid-1970's, by which they meant that a sudden, mighty shift in attitudes and values was about to occur that would allow the New Age "Christ" to appear. Likewise, the word "connect" is very common with the occult as it represents the union of man and the 'gods', i.e., demonic gods.

TBN is leading its followers directly into the arms of the coming Antichrist!

Phil Munsey: "In the Throne Zone, time past, present, and future cease to exist. We move into a frame without the limitation of humanity in the natural."

In the course of these several nights of so-called revival, he apparently tried to show that people in the heathen world have learned how to connect with the principles of "God" without being Christians. I presume this is why he spoke so kindly of the Buddhist. Listen:

Phil Munsey: "People learn how to work the principles of God, they learn how to operate in the charisma of God without the character of God and that makes good people mad."

This pagan teaching will get you right into Hell, for if you strive to "operate in the charisma of God" while consciously eschewing the "character of God", you are going straight to the Abyss, because no one, but no one, ever enters into the Kingdom of Heaven without the character of God being imputed to him or her from Jesus Christ. That is the symbolism of wearing the white robes; Jesus said no one would enter Heaven without His white robe, His white and shining and pure wedding dress. Listen:

"... when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." [Matt 22:11-13]

The phrase, "weeping and gnashing of teeth" is clearly Hell. No one enters Heaven without the imputed character, righteousness, of Jesus God.

Phil Munsey: "Get your ears to hear what the Spirit says now, Get your ear to hear what the Spirit says now. (Supposedly, the Spirit is speaking through him.) I tell you that the kingdom of God is so due and overdue. I tell you that Mother Nature and I don't mind using that word. . . It is now time for the New Jerusalem to come down out of heaven and kiss the earth until all that God is shall be made known and His glory fills the earth.. . I tell you what God is going to, has to do. He's either going to shut some mouths up that are aborting the purpose of God and bring some marriages... If you are a virgin and you are telling people you are pregnant, you could get stoned."

Phil Munsey: "God is looking for a womb to bring forth Rhenna upon the earth. The Bible says in Isaiah, chapter 34:16, and I love the Amplified Version, that "everything in nature has a mate of which they bring forth from their seed . . . Every Word of God has a mate..."

What a terrible twisting of Scripture! The Amplified Bible Commentary does NOT say that "everything in nature has a mate ... Every Word of God has a mate". What the verse does say is that each Prophecy of God will receive a mate in the fulfillment of that prophecy! Listen:

"Seek out of the book of the Lord and read: not one of these [details of prophecy] shall fail, none shall want and lack her mate [in fulfillment]. For the mouth [of the Lord] has commanded, and His Spirit has gathered them."

Let God's Word be true and every false prophet like Munsey be found a liar!

Can Truth Of Scripture Be Blended With Pagan Doctrines?

The answer is obviously a resounding, "No!" When God the Father becomes "mother god" as much as "father god", anything becomes possible in the pulpit. The term Mother Earth, as used by Munsey on these TBN Broadcasts suggests that the occultic paradigm shift has reached an intense level of change within this so-called Christian movement. These doctrines will be preached very carefully for awhile and then the speakers will grow blatant and arrogant.

Notice that Munsey says that the Spirit was saying, "the kingdom of God is so due and overdue?" The wording of this statement implies that God's plan is late, and may be approaching the failure stage. Is God ever late? Does He have to apologize for the "failure" of His plan? Copeland has already answered that on an earlier 'Praise The Lord; telecast. "God," says Copeland, "was the biggest Failure ever in history."

Antichrist paganism has arrived at the pulpits of these churches.

Standing On The Infallible, Eternal, Unchanging Word Of God -- The Eternal Anchor of Your Soul

My dear friends, get back to the truth of God's Eternal Word with all of your heart. Israel was experiencing much of this type of pagan revival, and had gone spiritually lusting after pagan idols rather than the Eternal God whom their forefathers had seen work mightily in their midst. Just before God sent physical destructive judgment that destroyed Israel, He pleaded:

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls." [Jer 6:16]

Whenever you hear a person ridicule the "old paths" of God's Word, or tell you not to allow "traditions" to stand in your way, get up and leave that church so quickly the door will not hit you on the way out! That person is a false prophet.

Biblical Truth will set you free. Do not allow these "New Wave" preachers force you to deny the beautiful ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life. The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father as the Spirit of truth. His living presence in the church will cause the Word of God to come alive in your heart, full of power and bringing joy. My heart is set on a reformation in the Body of Christ. The church world has a multitude of sincere believers who love the eternal Son of Cod, but many of them have been influenced by these pagan ideas. Pray earnestly for the "Word of God to prevail." Let's be sure that each one of us gets back into total Biblical truth and prays for a revival of genuine New Testament Christianity.

Pray earnestly for the Crouches, and others, that truth will prevail in their lives. Millions are being led into deeper and deeper error and everyone of us has an obligation to help them learn the truth. Share this information with everybody in your sphere of influence. As you survey this entire Charismatic Confusion, led by Kenneth Hagin, Benny Hinn, Paul and Jan Crouch, Kenneth Copeland, and others within the TBN network, you can appreciate the huge height, depth, and width of the unprecedented spiritual and political deception running rampant in the churches of today [Matthew 24:24]

While the world is at least 1,000 years away from the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven, we seem to be getting close to the appearance of Antichrist. And, the "Christian church" is opening the door to him!

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.

You can contact us by mail or email.

God bless you.
