Thank you Treena, God bless.
Paula White (City Destiny Church) and various other false NAR teachers have taken a lot of criticism over their failed Trump prophesies.. and rightly so!
Paula White denies being a prosperity preacher, a heretic or a cult leader, rather she defines herself as a “Charismatic Pentecostal” which is nothing to boast about and summarizes all of the above!
White is outraged and laments that it was “the church” that called her out rather than the atheists. If she read her bible she would know that it is the church, I mean the real church, that has the responsibility for calling out false teachers!
Paula White: “If your name’s not God, your opinion doesn’t matter and your acceptance is not needed. If your name is not God, Jehovah, Yahweh, El Shaddai, Jesus Christ then your opinion doesn’t matter and your acceptance is not needed.”ON THE CONTRARY PAULA WHITE!
Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. (Matthew 7:15).
Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. (Acts 17:11).
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. (Romans 16:17).
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1).
This is what the LORD of Hosts says: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They are filling you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. (Jeremiah 23:16).
There are many more examples in the scriptures emphasizing the necessity of testing prophesies, rightly dividing the word of truth and calling out those who deviate from it. (2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Corinthians 14:29; 1 Thessalonians 5:21). We need not rely on “opinion” in cases of false prophesy, the scriptures are explicit! (Ezekiel 13:1-22). It most certainly is the responsibility of “the church” to discern false teaching.. what does the world know about it? These false prophets/teachers bring the gospel into disrepute and should be silenced.. although it appears that Paula White will not be quiet any time soon! (2 Peter 2:2; Titus 1:11).
