Dear Liberty U Students and The Gospel Coalition: You Have Bigger Problems Than Trump

Learning the Path blogger, Brandon, reports on past and present speakers at Liberty University, some of whom are outright false teachers, and he tells us why they’re accused of playing fast and loose with the truth. One example he gives is Ann Voskamp who’s scheduled to speak on February 10th.  Brandon points out that this popular author and speaker “is yet another mystic who has made disgustingly blasphemous statements about God. Read this from her book, “One Thousand Gifts”, she wrote, “I fly to Paris and discover how to make love to God.”

Even though Trump has already spoken at LU, we’re posting Brandon’s piece because we want Bereans to be aware of the troubling speaker lineup.  He writes:

University students have been in arms about Donald Trump speaking at their school. Not only that, but Marc Corbett wrote an article at the Gospel Coalition that also was against the notion of Trump being allowed to speak. Before I get any further, I want to make it clear that I am no fan of Trump. I am pulling for Ted Cruz in the 2016 election. I have my reasons for not liking Trump, but I will save those for another day.

The recent lineup has included him, but by the looks of the lineup, Trump is the least of their worries. In the past, they have also had many people speak that should not have been given a stage to speak on. Notably, while they are upset that a man who is known to be unnecessarily rude (Trump) is coming, the Pro-Abortion, Pro-Gay Bernie Sanders was also invited to speak and people actually defended this choice. I get why people don’t want Trump at their school. I wouldn’t either. But At the same time, I wouldn’t want a man who supports sexual perversion and in-utero infanticide to come near my school. No statement about his politics made, Ben Carson, who also spoke at LU, is a Seventh Day Adventist. If you are in outrage because Non-Christian Donald Trump spoke, you should also be outraged that cultist Ben Carson did. Not only did they invite an Abortion Advocate and Seventh Day Adventist, but they invited Roman Catholic Rick Santorum to come and speak. Even politics aside, the lineup of Liberty University gets worse than Donald Trump.

Not only has Sanders spoken at LU, but so has the mystic author of “The Circle Maker”, Mark Batterson (Source). Mark Batterson is most known for his promotion of the Jewish Mystic Honi and Mystic Circle making. Another speaker who has been there is Steven Furtick (Source). Furtick is “The King of Narcigesis”, known for almost always taking a text that has nothing to do with himself, taking it out of context, and making it about himself (This Process is known as Narcigesis). Word of Faith, prosperity gospel pastor Brian Houston has also spoken at LU (Source). He is most song for basically being the leader of the Hillsong cult. He wrote a book centering around the prosperity gospel entitled “You Need More Money” (Source) and was connected to a scandal (Source, WARNING: It is infuriating). Houston isn’t the only Hillsong cultist to speak at LU. They’ve also had Carl Lentz (Source), who has proven himself to be more than soft on the issue of homosexuality (You can read more here), almost to the point of being a Vinist (Vinism is the heretical belief that homosexuality is not sinful). They have also had Mystic and Protege of Joyce Meyer, Christine Caine (Source). Let us not forget the time that Glenn Beck was also invited, despite the fact that he is a Mormon. There are many more people who’ve spoken at LU that any discerning mind should be concerned about.

The sad thing is, that hasn’t changed. There are still those that are on the future lineup (Which can be read here)  Continue reading

One Response to Dear Liberty U Students and The Gospel Coalition: You Have Bigger Problems Than Trump

  1. Darrel January 29, 2016 at 1:06 pm #

    Brandon has launched a thankless task for himself, exposing the false teachers of our day. Many set out to do this and at first are somewhat faithful to the task, but when their golden boy or golden girl comes up for review and the real person is exposed for the evil that they preach and do, the task at hand soon becomes too heavy, easier “prey” are sought, and the real danger to the Church gets a pass yet again. Brandon’s listing of past speakers at LU covers a lot of names, all of which have their own ‘demerits’ to contend with and in the list of upcoming speakers it only gets worse. All of the “evangelicals” are flaming ecumenical/heretics (possibly one or two have not fallen off the ledge so far, but are leaning that way) and the worldly pagans will bring what to the table for the born again to ‘feast upon’?

    There are many that could have been highlighted in Brandon’s piece, but he chose not to do so—that’s a ‘no fault’ on his part. There is one who needs to be exposed more fully, a man who from the beginning of his “ministry” (forty plus years ago) has repeatedly shown himself to be double minded even to the point of “speaking lies in hypocrisy”, yet he is well respected by his followers, highly sought after, and has become somewhat of a “go-to-guy” for answers and explanations. But his own testimony of “salvation” is lacking (because he doesn’t have one), his doctrine is laced with lies (90% truth and 10% lies=100% lie), and he even teaches outright heresy and calls it “Gospel truth”.

    The man’s name is John MacArthur.

    His “testimony” is totally void of repentance, by his own words he mocks the very idea that HE ever had anything to repent of. Hear it in his own voice at gty.org ‘sermon’ #80-33 or if that has been scrubbed from his web site find it at https://viemo.com/150440797?from=outrd-embed (here you will see the Scriptures JM contradicts). He finds great swelling words of vanity (vanity because he requires it of others and excuses himself from the very thing he teaches) to give to his underlings about repentance in his “Study Bible”. See his comments on 2Cor. 7:9-11. His words might be useful if he actually practiced what he preached, which, by his own words, he has no need of repentance.

    JM also teaches that the mark of the beast can be taken by a person and later on that person can be saved, contrary to Rev. 14:9-11; 19:20 & 21; 20:4. For many, because MacArthur said it, it has to be so, regardless of what the Scriptures say. [here, JM comes dangerously close to blaspheming the Holy Spirit].

    Then we find JM’s statements on the insufficiency of the Blood of Christ to save a person. Quotes like the following should make a real Christian sick to his stomach: “You have to stop short of saying ‘We are saved by the blood of Jesus,’ in the sense that there is some efficacy in the fluid that poured out of His body.” Or how about “There is nothing in the fluid in His body that in any way in itself could save us.” Perhaps this will convince some: “When the New Testament refers to salvation by His blood, it is not talking about salvation by His fluid; it uses blood as a metaphor or a synonym for death because it conveys the violence of it.” One more: “Blood is a euphemism for His death.” There are no less than three dozen verses that speak in direct contradiction to the words of this man “who has trampled the Son of God under foot , and counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing AND INSULTED THE SPIRIT OF GRACE” (Heb. 10:29). Heb. 9, 10, 12, &13 is a good place to start. In JM’s ‘study bible on 1 John 1:8 the doubled minded man speaks again (of himself) “If someone never admits to being a sinner, salvation cannot result” (again, refer to JM’s “testimony” of (non)salvation. Next he completely exposes himself for the frau that he is: “Not only did the false teachers make false claims to fellowship and disregard sin, they are also characterized by deceit regarding sinlessness” and JM said four times that he never rebelled against God.

    There are other errors taught and lived by John MacArthur and it is hoped that the genuine believer will take to heart the warnings here and those others have put forth. It’s you heart and mind (and soul) that is at stake.
