Good advice from Elizabeth Prata of The End Time. We agree for the reason that Lysa does not rightly handle God’s word and is not doctrinally sound, as you will see. In a previous blog post Prata asks“How can you learn discernment from a Bible teacher who does not possess it herself?” You can’t. Why? Because no one learns discernment from a false teacher. Lysa TerKeurst is a false teacher.
Following are three reasons discerning believers must leave Lysa:
Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries is coming to Athens, GA.
I strongly recommend that you not go see Lysa Terkeurst. Avoid her.
First, about her: Her website states Lysa TerKeurst is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the New York Times best-selling author of The Best Yes, Unglued, Made to Crave, and 16 other books. She is also a speaker at conferences and a daily blogger. She is also wife and mom to 5 kids.
Here are some reasons to strongly consider avoiding Lysa TerKeurst in all her venues but especially in person when she arrives at Athens. These are in no particular order. All are a concern.
1. Bad Associations
1. Lysa’s home church is Elevation Church led by pastor Steven Furtick. Furtick is a prosperity teacher who opposes deep doctrine and mocks those who enjoy it, and has taken the title of Super Apostle. He also unsurprisingly preaches blasphemous things. Steven Furtick is a false pastor.
On August 9, 2016 in the Uninvited Book Release party held at Elevation on behalf of Lysa, she once again claimed Elevation as her church and Furtick as her pastor. Furtick also affirmed TerKeurst as one of his church family. This association violates the degree of separation from false teachers demanded by the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:5, 2 Corinthians 6:14, Ephesians 5:7). Instead, she partners with them. (source- Uninvited Book Release Celebration webcast).
1a. In another recent partnership, Lysa recently spoke alongside these men. Aside from Furtick, an additional two have been fired from their pastorates for being unqualified because they fell below reproach. (1 Timothy 3:2). Not excellent. TerKeurst should be separating herself from these ‘leaders’, not supporting, promoting, and partnering with them.
|The person speaking here is Perry Noble, who was fired from NewSpring Church
5 months later. Driscoll had already quit ahead of certain discipline
and likely firing from Mars Hill Church.
A student will rise no higher than her teacher. So ladies, avoid Lysa TerKeurst, because her teachers, associates, and spiritual influences are very low. Continue reading
