Apprising Ministries has been warning you about the growing acceptance of Word Faith prosperity preachers within the mainstream of apostatizing evangelicalism.
The evidence is clear; for example, Emerging Ecumenical Evangelephants And The Word Faith Movement and James MacDonald Was A Bit Late In Mainstreaming T.D. Jakes.
In addition, within the past couple of weeks we have also seen renowned evangelical apologist Ravi Zacharias: Word faith Preacher Joyce Meyer “Such A Great Bible Teacher” God Is Using.
One of the most blasphemous teachings in Word Faith theology is their repugnant Mormon-like mythology that we are all “little gods.” Christian apologist Clete Hux explains:
Word-Faith teachers say that not only is God a big man, but man is a little god. Kenneth Hagin has asserted, “man…was created on terms of equality with God, and he could stand in God’s presence without any consciousness of inferiority…. He made us the same class of being that He is Himself…. He lived on terms equal with God…. The believer is called Christ, that’s who we are; we’re Christ” (Zoe: The God Kind of Life, pp. 35-36, 41).
“God’s reason for creating Adam was His desire to reproduce Himself…He was not a little like God. He was not almost like God. He was not subordinate to God even” (Copeland, Following the Faith of Abraham, 1989, Tape #01-3001). He also proclaims, “You don’t have a God in you ‹ you are one!” (Copeland, The Force of Love, 1987, Tape #02-0028).
Morris Cerillo says “the whole purpose of God was to reproduce Himself. …you’re not looking at Morris Cerillo, you’re looking at God, you’re looking at Jesus” (The End Time Manifestation of the Sons of God, Audio Tape 1, Sides 1 &;2). (source)
Keeping this in mind, you are about to hear both T.D. Jakes and Joyce Meyer teaching this blasphemy for yourselves. This clip is an excerpt from Word of Faith Teachers: Origins & Errors of Their Teaching:
