Phony doctorates are a moral scandal in the church today, says David Kowalski, pointing out that many ministers are deliberately misrepresenting their academic qualifications with fake degrees.
Dr. Ronald Enroth, Professor of Sociology at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California, is a recognized Evangelical Christian authority on the subject of cults, new religious movements, and abusive churches.
What does it mean to offer pastoral care in both the manner in which Jesus wished it to be undertaken and in terms of the content of the care that is offered to Christ's flock?
Keith William Marshall addresses this question in his dissertation, written in response to a perceived breakdown in pastoral care
An old, marginal, view of law and gospel is being popularized today, but it is easily refuted. This view is best referred to by its old name -- antinomianism (a term coined by Martin Luther, meaning "against law") because such people say God's moral law has been negated through the cross.
David Kowalksi addresses the issue.
E. Bernard and Manasseh Jordan are enemies of the gospel. Their talk of prosperity, power, and prophecy ultimately points us to the Jordans themselves and to a mystical power within us. These sheep-fleecers preach and teach dark, cultic doctrines in the house of God. And, writes David Kowalski, they would likely not have gained entry in that house without the help of their good friend, Benny Hinn.
A wake-up call for Christians who fall for anything that promises to make them healthy, rich, and happy.
