On (or around) January 20, 2012, the upcoming book by author Jeff Kluttz, Apostasy!, will be released. This work is an examination of the men and women who have propagated the “Word Faith” doctrinal position that has so aggressively taken root in many of today’s charismatic churches. Many who serve the Lord in these churches are utterly unaware as to the sources of the doctrines they are hearing espoused from their local church pulpits. This work traces the sources of such doctrines as well as the new systematic theology which it naturally produces.
Error gives birth to error. If a foundational tenet of a group’s doctrine is compromised, necessarily all following dogma will follow suit. The Word-Faith premise is dangerous, flawed and unbiblical- even by the testimony of its teachers.
||Apostasy is creeping into the church from televisions, books and star-personality tours of rich and blasphemous self-proclaimed prophets of God; many of whom are the most famous pastors and teachers in the U.S. These counterfeit shepherds teach that faith is a material substance more powerful than God, accessible to all men, and capable of creating anything man’s heart can desire by the mere utterance of faith-filled-words. This doctrine has leached into all areas of the theological systems of what are known as “Word of Faith” churches. Virtually every major area of systematic theology in this movement has been taken captive by the repercussions of this primordial error.
In this heresy, God is limited. Man is unlimited. Satan fills a necessary role in atonement for sin. Health, wealth, power and all means of temptation are heralded as virtues of the faith while millions empty their bank accounts for the promise of such ambition.
Preying on the poor and desperate, this movement is systematically fulfilling biblical prophesies concerning a latter-day apostasy within Christendom.
