The past week or so I have been reading a book called Defining Deception by Costi Hinn (Benny’s saved nephew) and Anthony G. Wood. To say it has been an eye-opener would be an understatement. I am reading it as part of my desire to further my study on what is called the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) which “stars” Bill Johnson, Bethel Redding and Jesus Culture.   I’ll write more on that later in another post.

One of the most blatant lies of the NAR and what is commonly called the Health/Wealth (Un)gospel and which has been around for years is the guaranteed healing in the Atonement. If healing doesn’t come then it is a sign of a lack of faith. Can I say one word? GARBAGE! Stronger words come to mind but I don’t use those kinds of words.  I introduce this song with that caveat as my song of the week.

Too bad the false teachers (heretics) of the above mentioned garbage haven’t listened to the truth of this song. Then again, it doesn’t fit their lies so they would probably discount it.

    Expecting perfect health and material wealth from the gospel only leads to disappointment. 🙁 I love that Kutless song. It helped me through difficult times when my parents were both dying. Thanks for sharing, Bill.

  2. I’m with you, Bill – the health/wealth preaching is absolutely garbage. Why do people fall for this???
    And the song says it all . . .

    All of the theistic religions require a high level of delusional thinking. To suggest ones person’s delusion is right and one is wrong is kind of silly. They both have the exact same amount of evidence to support their position. zero.

    Good for you brother, calling out the lies. You are a brave soul.

    And what discouragement for those who claim unlimited physical healing when they find that our bodies are truly dying daily …

    I’m with you, Bill. Believing that the Creator and sustainer of all life is some type of Genie in a bottle is ridiculous. People want to believe lies.
