Articles about Word of Faith

The Word of Faith movement is a loose coalition of false teachers, all of whom teach that faith is a force, that words contain that force, and that by believing the right things and speaking the right words, we can change reality itself. Ultimately, these ideas suggest that humans are divine in nature and can do all that God can do.

A lot of people believe in the 'law of attraction.' It's been promoted by people like Robert Schuller and Oprah Winfrey, and it's the foundational idea behind most Word of Faith preachers. What is it? How does it work, if it works at all? Should Christians study it?

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the president of LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, based in Lagos, Nigeria. He holds conferences around the world with a specific focus on healing. He operates an "International School of Healing," and is undoubtedly a false teacher.

Sally asked about Kenneth Copeland's teaching on "the law of faith," where he cites Mark 11:12-24. In that passage, Jesus cursed a fig tree and it withered. He points to this passage as an example of using words to change reality, and suggests that we can do the same. Is he right?

Unfortunately, Myles Munroe was a false teacher. I don’t say that gladly. He was by all accounts a happy man, an engaging speaker, and a skilled leader of leaders. He could have done much more for the Kingdom of God had he clearly taught what we find in the Scriptures. Instead, Myles Munroe taught heretical Word of Faith doctrines.

The Word of Faith movement is a pseudo-Christian cult. While there is no central authority in the Word of Faith movement, and no official set of beliefs, adherents share a set of basic unbiblical beliefs about God, the nature of the universe, the nature of humanity, and more.

Steven Furtick is a very popular speaker, a gifted communicator, and – based on the growth of his congregations – likely a gifted leader as well. He has a great amount of influence and a worldwide audience. Of course, those have nothing to do with whether he’s a false teacher.

I've spent a lot of time listening to Joseph Prince. I like the guy. Unfortunately, I feel the need to caution most believers to avoid listening to him.

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a movement made up of a number of like-minded people who call themselves Christian, but share a number of unbiblical ideas. Most NAR teachers are also Word of Faith teachers, another decidedly unbiblical set of ideas.
