Popular Charismatic Worship Artist, Kari Jobe, Teaching Dangerous Theology

After reading Jeff Maples’ blogpost over at Pulpit & Pen you will wonder why Kari Jobe was invited to lead worship for Women of Faith, an event that draws thousands of women. When you read the lyrics to some of Jobe’s songs, you’ll realize that the words are blasphemous….and you’ll want to repent if you ever uttered those words.  Three of Kari Jobe’s songs are featured on the hit CD, Women of Faith Presents Gateway Worship a Collection. So if you own the CD, consider tossing it in the trash.

But this is not about Women of Faith; it’s about contemporary “Christian” music and professing Christians who write and perform it, some of whom are at best biblically illiterate and at worst wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Read it and weep…

Kari JobeIt’s never-ending. The apostasy, the lack of discernment, the gullibility. How can anyone who proclaims the name of Jesus Christ not recognize the dismal state of the professing church? Words cannot even begin to describe the how far away the church is from Christ in these days. The attractions, the concerts, the conferences. People joining hands with those teaching for shameful gain things they ought not to teach. This is not revival, but the falling away in it’s most deceptive and extreme form–a form of godliness that denies its power.

Tickets go on sale in May for Outcry Tour 2016. The music festival will be held in several cities around the nation, and features some of the most lauded names in “worship.” The groups include Hillsong, Kari Jobe, Rend Collective, Housefires, Urban Rescue, Chad Veach, and none other than Elevation Worship.

Now, I’m not exactly sure who these people are worshiping, but it isn’t Jesus. Yet, thousands of Christians are blindly sending their children to partake in this evil.

In the Charismatic Evangelical church, there is a movement known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). It is a movement that elevates experience above doctrinal truth. Often times you will see many with contradictory beliefs about the basic tenets of Christianity come together in prayer and worship. This is the driving force behind this modern worship scene that’s creeping into once solid churches.

Hillsong United is among the most deceitful and subversive worship music movements. Hillsong music is popular, and is played throughout even some of the most theologically solid churches, deceptively luring people away from doctrinal truth and into an experiential form of idolatry that removes Jesus as the sole object of worship, and places the emphasis on ear-tickling lyrics and music that draws on people’s emotions. Read more about them here.

But another of Outcry’s featured singers, Kari Jobe, is also a popular musician being promoted in churches, especially to our youth. Jobe, out of seeker-sensitive NAR Robert Morris’ Gateway church, is known for popular songs like I Am Not Alone, and Love Came Down. She is also under the leadership of Gateway’s NAR Apostle and elder, Jack Hayford, author of the song Majesty, which teaches the heretical “Kingdom Now” theology. However, she is one of those who are teaching for shameful gain things she ought not to teach (Titus 1:11).

One of her most popular songs, Forever, published by Bethel Music (the same outfit that produced Jesus Culture), contains some really aberrant theology. Besides the fact that she’s a female pastor in a church, her theology alone should be enough to disqualify her as a teacher. Below is a sample of her lyrics:

One final breath He gave 
As heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken

Then, In an interview about her song, Forever, she said,

My favorite part of the whole thing is … we talk about the death on the cross and we talk about the resurrection, but that time in between was when Jesus was in hell rendering hell. And ransacking hell. And defeating the enemy – taking those keys to death and hell and the grave to be victorious over that when he rose from the dead.

    Blasphemy is always more palatable with a catchy melody, good instrumentation and a pretty voice. It will be defended by those who like the sound of the song and/or the artist. After all, good intentions are what matter most in one’s theology.

    And as a bonus, if the song only uses second person pronouns, it can double as a love song to one’s boyfriend without having to change any of the words.

  2. Faith May 7, 2016 at 3:39 pm #

    This brings up an interesting point. Yes, Jack Hayford is a leading wolf ecumenical with Rome and many such things are underway and afoot in the area of apostasy. And there are many, many songs that can be dissected, analyzed, and found wanting. Songs about dominionism like ‘we bring in the kingdom’ in the lyrics, when; No, we don’t, Jesus does. And songs about breathing (contemplative), songs about how okay it is to stray away, we can never ‘go too far,’ and the like, ecumenism, etc. But I remember this song from a long time ago and looked at the lyrics again, and placed them below for analysis.

    Majesty
    Worship His majesty
    Unto Jesus be all glory,
    Honor and praise (Okay, no problems there)

    Majesty
    Kingdom authority
    Flow from His throne
    Unto His own
    His anthem raise (see analysis below)
    (2x)

    So exalt, lift up on high
    The name of Jesus
    Magnify, come glorify
    Christ Jesus the King (no problems with this either)

    Majesty
    Worship His majesty
    Jesus who died, now glorified
    King of all kings (that’s all good too…)
    (2x)

    So let’s look at this part again, since that must be the part in question:
    Kingdom authority
    Flow from His throne
    Unto His own

    First, we must distinquish between the kingdom that Jesus brings at His return, when He restores all things worldwide to the state before the fall in the garden of Eden, and the kingdom of heaven, AND the kingdom being among us as Christians (not worldwide). His Kingdom will cover the earth, the church has the kingdom among it in part but there is no global kingdom rule until He returns. When we are born again, we enter into God’s kingdom (see John 3). The kingdom of God enters our hearts. Then, by His authority, we are able to exercise power and the spiritual gifts (which yes, are for today too, they did not go ‘on break’ or ‘hiatus’ nor did the baptsim of the Holy Spirit). Whether you hold to that or not, you can’t argue that Jesus said what He did below:

    “Nor will people say, ‘Look, here it is,’ or ‘There it is.’ For you see, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” Luke 17; 21 (Before Jesus’ return)
    “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28; 18-19

    Jesus is at the right hand of the throne of God right now. We have been given authority in His name to perform things according to His will, and we enter into His kingdom upon salvation. So the lyrics could simply be referring to that, and in that case there is no problem there either.

  3. Faith May 7, 2016 at 4:00 pm #

    Again, to be clear, Dominionism is a dangerous heresy to avoid. The kingdom will not come to earth until Jesus returns. Anything before that is a satanic counterfeit.

    About songs, there is a song out there with lyrics that equate the singer with “Judas’s kiss,” and then continue “but you love me anyway…” It’s been on the radio a while now, several years at least. So the concept of a person being ‘Judas’s kiss’ is presented as being ‘okay,’ when Judas betrayed Christ and was damned. Then the lyric ‘but you [God] love me anyway.’ Do you see how subtle that is? Do you see how dangerous? Yes, God loves sinners, but they must repent, and no, it is not okay to identify with Judas who is in hell now. Peter denied Him out of fear and was reinstated after being forgiven. (John 21) Judas betrayed Him for money and met a different fate. Don’t go there.

      I know Kari from back in the aughts when she was accessible as a worship pastor at Gateway Church of Southlake, TX. She and her husband have been pastors at that church for years, as is her brother and her mother and father (who infamously cheated on his wife over a decade ago but was quickly and completely “restored” by Gateway Senior Pastor Robert Morris despite being disqualified from ministry).

      While I agree that she is kind, loving and very genuine, I will say her actions this week are not “what you see is what you get”. Far from it Kelly. Gateway took 7 of their leaders, including Kari and her husband Cody Carnes, to Trump’s Inauguration festivities and Kari PERFORMED at one of Trump’s Inaugural Balls. Robert Morris, GW Apostolic Elder James Robison and Kari’s Gateway employed parents Sandy and Mark Jobe also attended.

      The issue is that “Ms What you See is What You Get” has kept her support of Trump and her performance at his Inauguration festivities a dirty little secret hidden from her 2M supporters. As you well know, Kari Tweets about everything! “I sneezed!” 10k likes. I ate a Cheez-It” 50k likes. She was actively Tweeting/FBing up a storm during the Inauguration weekend about her new album release on Feb 3rd, yet is hiding her Trump support. Could it be that she thinks some of her fans could be offended by her supportibg a serial adulterer, casino and strip bar owning man who has children from 3 different women and advocates grabbing women’s genitals without their consent?

      I completely support her right to support any candidate she so chooses. That’s what I love about America. But doesn’t her covering her participation up from her fans, when she lays bare every other minute detail of her life, sound a bit deceitful?

      Lest readers think this is only support for the office, Kari’s home church, where she was a pastor for almost a decade, was one of Trump’s biggest supporters. They were the only church to hold TWO Spiritual Advisor positions in Trump’s Evangekical Board of Advosors. They funded Franklin Graham’s pro-GOP 50 state rally and Morris and Robison both spoke at official Inaugural events. Kari and her church have never been involved in any prior inaugurations.

      If she and her church want to support a man like Trump, so be it. However, when she goes this far out of her way to conceal it entirely from the public you can no longer argue that she is genuine or open. I loved and respected her up until this week. No more. It’s not because of her support for a man like Trump so much as it is her covering it up so her sales revenues don’t go down. This is who Kari has become.

  4. Kelly May 8, 2016 at 12:15 pm #

    I know Kari Jobe and never have I seen someone so real. What you see is what you get. If there’s a choice if who Jesus is or what Jesus I serve, I choose hers. I’ve witness His presence and seen the power of true worship.
    I can only pray that someday you will truely experience His presence so you too can know him like that.

    Everyone had their opinion but this article, to me is way out of line.

    • Sola Scriptura May 9, 2016 at 5:21 pm #

      Kelly – she preaches a different Jesus, a false Jesus, which Paul warned us about time and time again. See 2 Corinthians 11:4 and Galatians 1 for starters. Jesus Christ is the one who bore our sins in his body on a cold hard cross (1 Peter 2:23-25), and he didn’t come to make us rich or happy…he came to pay for our sins with his blood. THAT is the real, biblical Jesus, and the only one we should seek. Ignore all teachers, and get to know your Bible and as antiquated as it sounds, I highly recommend a KJV. I was NIV for decades until some of the changes bothered me. So I studied to show myself approved, and I discovered another one of satan’s brilliant deceptions…changing the Bible from the inside.
      Here is a short article explaining it:
      https://followingjesuschrist3.com/2015/10/24/the-bible-version-controversy-a-brief-history/

      Satan wants you to think you are following Jesus when you are really following men who invent a false Jesus because of the warm feelings it gives them, or because of greed. He wants you in hell at all costs and will gladly use the name of Jesus and christian terminology to get you there. Trust only the scriptures. I wish you Him, not as man fashions him, but as he is in the scriptures.

    • Tim January 13, 2017 at 4:14 pm #

      Kari is a beautiful Lady with a very sincere heart.

      Unfortunately those are Satans finest. Satan is coming as the messiah friend, why do you question his representatives come out as anything less than he is, for that’s all he chooses to infiltrate the church corrupting and mixing truth with error which is a mockery to God and His word!!

      You are misled because you look at the outward and it seems so lovely and that is the bait satan uses..

      The test is found if one is found to be in the Truth of Gods word, which Kobi clearly is NOT, and find s the power in another real spirit a false counterfeit spirit disguised as the Holy Spirit giving real emotions and feeling leading astray many preachers in the pulpit as warned in the Bible if you study it, not just read it.

    This statement is the most succinct description of Churchianity that I’ve read in months if not years!

    I don’t know Ms.Jobe, nor her music, but I will say this, by and large “Christian” music is just a business, with catch phrases thrown in for good measure. Look at how many “Christian” groups have imploded, later to be exposed they really weren’t followers of Christ. Or some “Christian” entertainer leaves wife or husband for another, or confesses he’s not really a believer. The Christian Music Business, glorifies the performer and it’s another piece in the puzzle of how the “church” wants to be like the world. Congregations have switched The Word for entertainment.

  6. Darrel May 9, 2016 at 1:33 pm #

    Kari Jobe, such a sweet, innocent face, a soft and mellow voice, an easy to love demeanor, no doubt thousands (millions) have fallen under her spell (Kelly?) and is fast becoming one of the elite that can do no wrong—at least in the eyes of her fans. But beneath this veneer of kindness, mild-mannered, ewe (baby lamb) like persona we find the real Kari Jobe to be one who does not know the Jesus of the Bible but has replaced Him with a figment of her imagination.

    Christ indeed spent three days in hell, but NOT to destroy it or the devil. Christ had already made a “public spectacle” of His enemy and all demons while on the Cross (Col. 2:14 & 15) while the purpose of His visit to hell was to preach “to the spirits in prison” 1 Peter 3:18 and 1 Peter 4:6. Eph. 4:8 – 10 gives further reason for His time there. No where to be found is this fantasy KJ describes.

  7. Jesse May 10, 2016 at 10:40 pm #

    I don’t understand how people can judge her heart who have never met her. Haven’t we all sinned and fallen short of His glory? Don’t we still have a fallen flesh that leads us to sin on occasion even after we are saved? Is it not possible to explain this doctrinal misunderstanding as just that…a misunderstanding and not that she’s a false teacher? And lastly God says in Proverbs that he hates those who sow discord among the brethren…lets be cautious to not do that as we discern the times.

    • Darrel May 11, 2016 at 9:09 am #

      It is Kari Jobe that is sowing the discord and NOT those who point to her as the false prophet that she is. Is it ok with the god you worship for his followers to believe and preach anything they want no matter how it contradicts the Word of God that the real God has provided for us just so long as you “love” each other? I don’t need to meet this Kari Jobe in person to know her heart in this matter, because her own mouth has revealed it to the world, and in this matter her heart is pure wickedness. Is your heart far behind? You have rejected the Scriptures that have been provided to show you the truth of why Jesus went to hell for three days and have chosen instead to side with the god of lies that you worship. If the Holy Spirit resides in you how can you not repent of this evil immediately?

      • Ms. Jo May 30, 2016 at 12:16 pm #

        Oh Darrel – That hate is not going to get you anywhere. It is not righteous hate. What will the Lord say to you about this when you meet him face to face and look back on your deeds? (2 Corinthians 5:10) Will he say you addressed these people in love? Even if you do differ – your tone is not one that would lead people to your side. You attack her as Jesus attacked the Pharisees. Does she really deserve this? Kari Jobe loves Jesus. The fruit of her life is very good. Have you even looked at this? Yes – we do need to be aware of false teachers. Will we not know them by their fruit? If you think someone is deceived, if it is even you, let me ask: how would you want someone to address you? Not to save you, for you are already saved in Christ (John 5:24) But, how could one save you from the blessing you would lose at the judgement of deeds for how you treated those in Christ? God bless you.

          Hello

          I have studied Apologetics for years beginning in 1997 because of the many teachers and preachers. For the word warns that God will send a DELUSION to the so called people of God described in Thessalonians because the Love of the Truth which is only found in the word of God will wax cold.

          Yes, I agree hold hardedly with Darell in everything he has said in his post. My studies show Kari and a host of many others have fallen for this deceit!! It is a false spirit and false notion of the truth that blinds the masses.

          And Ms. Jo couldn’t be further from the truth for as the shepherds so go the sheep. Unfortuantely Jo, is sincere, but sincerely wrong and there is no mercy in this, for what is happening now in this mass APOSTASY is called JUDGMENT!! that the house of God is experiencing until the rapture.

          I have given up warning the blind, for if God blinds who can undo what God has done. Repeated denial of the exegetical truth of Gods word leads to blindess of the heard and mind.

          For Christ said this..Leave them for the blind will lead the blind. Even Jesus SEES that once blind of the truth, it then is sign that now God has left you, and there is no conviction within the heart, and He leaves the followers of false teaching in blindess following and defending false teachers that teach DAMNABLE HERESIES warned about over and over and over in throughout the whole bible!!

      Jesse – as Paul judged Peter for the sake of the gospel, so we are to judge those who teach falsely…not for our own sake but for the sake of Jesus Christ, who saved us from our sins through his blood shed on the cross. Nothing else matters. May God and his word be true…and every man a liar. See what the scriptures say about judging “righteously:”

    Love Kari Jobe she is awesome and after going to a concert with her singing I went to another level in my faith and it grew and grew and grew. She did the watering and God did the growing!!!

  10. Nicole May 29, 2016 at 10:53 pm #

    For those of you who always try to see the negative and try to make people believe that those that try to bring people to Christ are the enemy …you need to wake up! Kari Jobe has always brought me deeper in my faith because of her amazing music. Been a member of gateway church for over 7 years and I know God sees the good. I pray that you open read the bible… see the truth that will be revealed to you of you let it!

  11. Ms. Jo May 29, 2016 at 11:42 pm #

    This is really sad. Kari Jobe believes. No – she may not have every detail right, but that does not mean she follows a false Jesus. Where is your love?

    “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” – John 5:24

    • Tim January 13, 2017 at 3:49 pm #

      No one has every detail right..One must have every detail of the CORE DOCTRINES right which she does not, For blessing the NAR and being a part of it a partaker of their evil deeds experessed in III John. But however, she is a part of this false movement among other false teachings.

      No, it goes into denying who the REAL CHRIST is.

      Who do you say that I am Christ asked Peter. The same question goes to every soul born. For this answer to this question MUST be perfectly Right, otherwise one follows another Jesus warned about in Galatians which were as well led astray by false teachers.

      Paul said the consequence of this vial ERROR is Damnation.

      For it is written in Galatians, For I tell you if anyone preach any other Gospel, any other testament, any other message than the one I preached even if a holy angel from heaven preach any other message let him be cursed I say to you again, if any preach any other message let him be CURSED.

      This means Damned.

      Yes, as warned false teachers who will come as angels of light, beautiful sweet hearted souls portrayed as such and very charismatic an popular are the very ones leading the masses to a false Christ found in Kari Jobe and a host of many others who are taking over the real chirstianity which is called the Great Apostasy or a Great Falling away to even the elect will be challenged as warned in the bible of a last days falling away to a hell eternal.

      Its the judgment in the house of God, for judgment will first start at house of God and it has arrived in spades!! Very few churches are left preaching the Old Fashion Gospel because no one goes!! due to the excitement of the New Christ preached throughout the whole world found in the likes of Joel Osteen and most on TBN!!

  12. Samye Kaye May 30, 2016 at 11:22 am #

    This music worship brings MANY young, lost souls to Jesus. Shut up with the dissection and let Jesus use this to bring these young people to Him. Do you not think He is using this lovely music for His own purpose? Too much study and not enough faith in His benevolent power and love……you are missing the whole point. The emotion of this lovely music breaks a hardened heart. God knows this and do you not believe that once that heart is broken He will enter? And do you not believe He will then guide this new child of His? To negate the power of this movement bringing the lost youth to Him is you negating the power and awesome love He has for the broken.

    • Tim January 13, 2017 at 3:56 pm #

      LOL, listen friend Satan always brings lovely music, lovely people for he is still an angel of light!!! but a false light!! For he too will come as the messiah and will deceive the whole world because of his false light!!

      As warned by Paul do not be deceived for Satan is a false light why do you marvel that his servants come also an great preachers and evangelists !!

      Satan does not have horns but comes as lovely and handsome and perfect, so he is reflected by his servants as well.

      You have been blinded by a false light.. Start hearing the real preachers of Gods word.

      Start by going to deceptioninthechurch.com for it has a host of many true preachers and teachers of Gods word.

  13. Deb R. from NY June 1, 2016 at 6:23 pm #

    To Samye Kaye; you claim that worship music draws many lost souls to Jesus? You also say ” too much study, not enough faith in His benevelont power and love” and ” the emotion of this lovely music breaks a hardened heart”. Can you please reference scripture for these statements? Romans 1:16-17, Romans 10:3-9, Romans 16:25-26, 1cor.1:21-25 all explain that the true, clear gospel of Jesus Christ must be presented first.matthew 3:2 is one example of repentence necessary before conversion can take place. We can never study His living word ” too much”! Coming to Christ must be on His terms, otherwise it is a false conversion.

    Ms.Jo…if Kari Jobe does not preach the true Word, she is preaching another Jesus. If she doesnt have the atonenent and redemption correct, then she should not be a minister….plus she is a female pastor,
    which is forbidden in the bible.
    For Nicole and anyone else who has feel good moments from Kari’s music: she chooses to share the stage with heretical groups like Hillsong, Jesus Culture, Bethel music, Elevation music, etc. She also performs at conferences where false.teachers such a Joyce Meyer, Christine Caine, Beth Moore appear. Lastly, she is under the ” covering” of Gateway, pastor Robert Morris, who is a word of faith, NAR wolf. So…ask yourself people…why does Kari only surround herself with false teachers and groups? Is it a lack of descernment on her part? Or does she believe just like they do? Whatever the answer, she should not be teaching .
    Please, search the scriptures! Read and study! We are in the last days, and were warned of thus apostacy. Get on descernment websites and blogs and read about how dangerous the word of faith and NAR are.
    Be blessed!

    Another song to consider…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxeVrMC1qVY Seems like a pretty solid example of the gospel. Can you doubt this woman’s love for Jesus? She sings of His blood cleansing her from her sin and His Lordship and acknowledging Him as the Son (which the Bible tells us she can’t do unless she is truly saved). I agree the theology of the fight in the grave may be off but lets give her some room for doctrinal error without calling her a heretic…by those standards I’d say we’ve all been heretics at times…

    • Tim January 13, 2017 at 4:03 pm #

      Yes, she may have a love for jesus, but that is not the test!!!

      The bible says what to test and its not if you love jesus for many love jesus but are going to hell because they put their trust in the wrong jesus.

      The test is a Love for the TRUTH!! This is what they don’t value and are never found in the word, muchless listening to true teacners that are in the word!!

      I AM the Truth!! Without The Truth who Jesus is there is NO LIFE ETERNAL. For He is the Truth not something in Him, its literally who He IS.

      For in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the Word was God. The word became FLESH!!

      iT IS WHO HE IS!!

    Wow. This “Christian” site appears to be the very thing the writers and bloggers are “warning” the rest of us about. I’ve read some of the articles on almost all of the topics listed. They are filled with hate. Where is the love of Jesus here? Even though I’m repelled by some of the things I’ve read on this site, I understand we are all only humans and we all are loved by our Father. All of us.

    • Tim January 13, 2017 at 4:06 pm #

      Wrong question!!

      The right question where is the Love of the TRUTH!!

    What I read here is a bunch of Pharisees who think that knowing all your perfect theology makes them more mature, but no, it actually is extremely arrogant and not Christlike at all. If you all truly want to be even considered real Christians, the first thing you ALL need to do is actually stop this charade of judgement and fighting and nonsense and get OUT of your pretty little pews and perfect little Christian clicks and circles and BE the love of Christ. All your theology and “maturity” is completely useless and seen as pure pride in the eyes of the world. Grow up, get up, get over yourselves, and actually DO all those pretty bible verses you all have WELL memorized to the core… Only then can I take this thing seriously. Honest to God, I have never been SO sickened in my life for a post.

    • Amy Spreeman September 12, 2016 at 1:00 pm #

      Natalie, please take a deep breath and understand that doctrine IS important, not only to us but to Jesus, who commanded that we watch out for false teachers. Unfortunately when someone with a public platform teaches a different theology, he or she is leading the sheep astray. This should break your heart – not the fact that we are warning the dear lambs about this danger. It is as if you would defend the cliff that the sheep are headed over. Kari is reflecting Joyce Meyer’s heretical “Jesus won the battle in Hell” statements. From the article, Kari sings, “A battle in the grave…The war on death was waged…” No, it was finished on the cross. Sadly, Kari appears to have become tangled up in the New Apostolic Reformation movement. I exhort you to learn about this movement and compare it to Scripture. See our White Paper on Dominionism/NAR for this.

      Wrong question!!

      The right question where is the Love of the TRUTH!!

      To rebuke jobi is love, not the other way around.

      Contending for the truth makes you sick? Scripture makes you sick? Calling out error makes you sick? You’re willing to compromise all of the above because you idolize the person singing? How about when Paul called out Peter? Or Jesus called out the pious leaders of His day? Maybe instead of getting sick, why don’t you examine what Kari is expounding and compare to what scripture says, as Amy pointed out her heresy is coming from Joyce Meyer a well known expounded of error…….But I guess that doesn’t matter right?

    People are more concerned about their entertainment idols than the truth……..they get bent out of shape if their favorite idol is castigated, but when scripture gets dragged in the dirt they don’t bat an eye. Who are the hypocrites? Those that care for the words of Christ or those that care for things of the world? These people need to go back and read IN CONTEXT what it means to judge! No discernment, no knowledge.
