I hate to enter directly into blatant criticism of an individual and his beliefs, but thankfully in this case I don’t have to because so many I respect and admire have done such a good job of it themselves. Personally, I don’t intend this blog as an attack against his person: he may be a kind and moral man for all I know, but it is an unavoidable fact that his Bible teaching – or lack-thereof – is not Gospel-centered and taken by itself can lead no one to the Biblical Christ. Yes, he may actually believe the Gospel, but if so, why does he never teach it? It is pure health-wealth and works righteousness, otherwise known as ‘death’.
