Notorious heretic, Steven Furtick, continues to deny the Scriptures to appease the ears of men while preaching stuff he makes up rather than derives from the Scriptures.
Recently, Furtick tweeted an outright lie about the nature of the gospel. In contradiction to 2 Corinthians 5:17–which says that anyone who is in Christ is a new creation and that the old has passed away–Furtick asserts that instead, God doesn’t make us new, but simply reveals who we were all along.
In his latest fulmination against the biblical teaching of the gospel, he preaches a different gospel altogether. Instead of a gospel that saves us from the wrath of God caused by our sin and rebellion against God, he preaches a gospel that saves us from “difficult places” and “hectic schedules” and “all of the obstacles and problems that are in front of us.”
No mention of sin and separation from God’s grace and mercy. What Furtick’s gospel lacks–in every presentation–is that the problems we need to be saved from are not in front of us, but within us. Our hearts and minds apart from Christ are inclined to rebel against God, as is stated in Romans 1:7, “For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.”
Furtick replaces this truth with the lie that our salvation is from external problems–because that’s much more palatable for a stadium full of lost people to hear.
Please turn away from Steven Furtick and his false teachings and turn to the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
