Holly Pivec of Spirit of Error addresses Bethel Church lead pastor and so-called apostle Bill Johnson’s teaching that believers ought to regularly pursue direction from outside of Scripture, “from subjective impressions experienced by ourselves and others rather than from the objective Word of God.” Are “subjective impressions” found in the Bible? And do the scriptures suggest […]

Lysa TerKeurst coming to Athens. Do not go to see her.
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.

Why Doesn’t God Just Talk To Me?

What could be wrong with learning to “hear God’s voice”?
In this blog post, Holy Pivec of Spirit of Error shares some of the highly unbiblical teaching that’s coming out of the apostate New Apostolic Reformation and is being taught to young and old alike. Sadly, many pastors and church leaders are biblically illiterate; thus they’re feeding their sheep unsound theology, even heresy, as evidenced in Pivec’s piece. […]
