In conclusion, the concepts of God “losing” his creation to man (or to Satan, depending on which theory the WOF teachers are using at the moment) and being dependent upon man, are both utterly unsound theologically and rationally: Theologically, because scripture never teaches nor even hints at God having lost his foothold on earth nor in all of creation, and rationally because one who loses his control over his creation cannot be rightfully called God, as he will have been usurped by one more powerful than himself.

1 Timothy 6:3-5 (NIV) 3 If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, 4 he is conceited and understands nothing.
