The Word of Faith (WF) movement emerged within Charismatic/Pentecostal Christianity in the latter 20th century. The Word of Faith movement as a whole has no formal organization or authoritarian hierarchy, though the movement does have a number of high-profile teachers like Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland who heavily influence Word of Faith theology. It’s basic theology is a peculiar mix of orthodox Christianity, metaphysicism and mysticism .
When ‘Positive Confession’ merged with Christianity, it apparently seemed to transform some dead and struggling churches into thriving vibrant mega churches. With vast influences spreading from America to the third world struggling churches in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the rest of the world.
Unbeknown to many unsuspecting converts the errors that produced New Thought and Christian Science had also produced Word-of-Faith as a Christianised version. Here are 10 reasons why you should reject Word of Faith:
It makes the Almighty God and Creator a weak ‘faith-being’ who is at the mercy of His own universal laws.
It makes the Divine Son of God into a born-again man who had to die in Hell to pay the price for our treason.
It elevates man to equality with Jesus.
It makes man a god.
It makes the redemption into a restoration of dominion for mankind.
Its goal is the transformation of the earth by spiritual dominion.
It replaces prayer with confession, and God’s will with the manipulation of ‘forces’.
It denies the reality of sin and sickness.
It focuses on self and the world instead of God and Heaven.
