YouTube Apologist, Mike Winger, Says He Would Absolutely Fellowship With False Churches Like Bethel

Mike Winger, a pastor and a popular Christian apologist has been the subject of controversy in recent days after seemingly defending Revoice, the “gay Christianity” movement, and stating that he is open to female pastors and teachers.

As of late, however, WInger, who is the “featured teacher of BibleThinker online ministry,” which he describes as “a ministry dedicated to equipping people to think and live biblically,” seems to have a problem trashing true Christianity while defending the clearly, unashamedly false gospels of false Christian movements—like Bethel.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

In the clip below, Mike Winger says that he would “absolutely” still fellowship with false churches like Bethel and would call them his “brothers and sisters in the Lord.”

Bethel Church in Redding, CA is pastored by Bill Johnson who claims to be an Apostle — that is, he claims Apostolic authority just like the twelve men during Christ’s time on Earth. Bethel Redding, like all cults, is filled with aberrant, unbiblical teachings and doctrines of demons, including false manifestations of the Holy Spirit, grave sucking, and the Prosperity Gospel.

The Prosperity Gospel is a perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ that teaches that Jesus’ primary purpose for his life, death, burial, and resurrection wasn’t to atone for sins but to make people who have enough “faith” healthy and wealthy. This false gospel carries with it several other false teachings such as positive confession, which is the ability to speak things into existence the way God does.

Bethel Redding is a hotbed of false apparitions, regularly blaspheming the Holy Spirit by attributing the works of men and demons to Him. One such notable occurrence which happens regularly is Bethel’s “glory clouds.” Glory clouds, they claim, are a manifestation of God during their worship, when, in fact, not only is it unbiblical, it has been thoroughly debunked. For more on Bethel, see the article: The Charismatic Cult of Bethel.
