DEBUNKING ROD PARSLEY’S WORD FAITH WEALTH MYTHOLOGY

In pieces like Prophet-Leader Steven Furtick Descends Down To Word Faith Heretic Rod Parsley here at Apprising Ministries I’ve been showing you the rapid decline into quasi-Word Faith mythology by this popular Seeker Driven prophet-leader.

As you can see in Steven Furtick Calls Joel Osteen Great Man Of God his flirtations with WF heresy were essentially revealed in his September 9, 2011 tweet below:

Since then it’s accelerated at an alarming pace into what I called Furtickism in Steven Furtick Bringin’ On Word Faith And The Pastrixes. Before you’re tempted to think this is no big deal, you need to understand that Furtick is actually a very influential young evangelical.

His pedigree includes Church Growth Movement gurus Bill Hybels and Rick Warren, both of whom have also placed their CGM blessings upon Steven Furtick. In addition, Furtick is also part of the new ecumenical evangelical magisterium that appears to have grown out of The Elephant Room.

This all means that when he pronounces notorious Word Faith prosperity preacher Rod Parsley “a preaching machine” it opens a bigger door into the mainstream of younger evangelical sectors than many seem to realize:

So, that’s why you saw me cover Word Faith Heretic Rod Parsley With Prayer Cloth Power! There I showed you that, right now, Parsley is offering a supposed anointed prayer cloth that will bring about your “spiritual breakthrough,” as in:

Whatever you need…
Whatever you desire from God…
All it takes to receive is a single act of faith. (source)

From this vantage point of the battlefield I’ll tell you that Rod Parsley’s August 9, 2012 Breakthrough program is called Power To Get Wealth and is chocked full of classic WF mythology. So, as you can see, Parsley’s still every bit a WF prosperity preacher a la Elephant Room 2’s T.D. Jakes.

In closing this, for now, below is a segment from the 8/13/12 Fighting for the Faith program of Chris Rosebrough of Pirate Christian Radio where he debunks the Word Faith mythology of Rod Parsley:


After listening to the program, ask yourself this question: How in the world could a genuine pastor sent by Christ possibly consider Rod Parsley’s ridiculous claims to be orthodox? Now consider that the very popular Seeker Driven prophet-leader Steven Furtick actually does.
