Fact a Day: February 20th

The Facts on The Faith Movement (Harvest House, 1993) pp. 14-15

What characteristics of the Faith Movement concern people?

The following summary should be considered a composite evaluation; all characteristics listed do not necessarily apply to each individual Faith ministry or teacher. Nevertheless, the following themes are representative and they are a matter of great concern to many in the Christian community:*

1. Cultic Origins or Influences
2. Oversimplification
3. Abuse of the Bible
4. False Teachings
5. Spiritual Pride
6. Spiritual Presumption
7. Worldly/Humanistic Theology
8. Experientialism
9. Hedonism
10. Exclusivism
11. Power Religion
12. Lack of Balance
13. Lack of spiritual Integrity

In essence, what is being lost to millions of Christians by the Faith teachers’ missed opportunities is almost incalculable. Rather than being taught the Bible accurately, rather than having the whole counsel of God preached, and rather than having their priorities straight, millions of Christians are being given a distorted set of spiritual values and priorities which, if not corrected, will lead to further difficulties and perhaps tragedies.
