Why narcigesis doesn’t work: Furtick claims to be “the son of God”?

Steven Furtick displays in the video here how false teachers with their false doctrines can be so subtle, especially when they churn up emotional hype around their message. Furtick calls himself “the son of God” and says he’s “always been the son of God.” This post comes thanks to the vigilance of the folks at the Church Watch Central blog.

Narcigesis – A biblical hermeneutic where one reads themselves into the bible and writes God out of it. [Source]

Steven Furtick is internationally recognized as King of the Narcigetes for a good reason: he seems to only read himself into the biblical text. The problem with this hermeneutical approach is that Jesus says that the scriptures point to Him.

“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.” John 5:39-40

Because of this, many people consider Elevation Church a cult because how Steven Furtick elevates himself to a messiah-like status. The below video snippet futher strengthens the case that Elevation church should be avoided.

The below video was uploaded by Elevation Church onto Steven Furtick’s Facebook account.

So in Acts 5,… Continue reading Enemies of the cross often play the victim with fear and contradictions

If you see something, say something: can we just live in Christ & not say it?

Is it really all that important to share the gospel with words? Or is it more effective if we just live out the Christian life in front of our peers without saying a word about the gospel? That was a question recently thrown out by a DJ on a Christian music radio station. In response,… Continue reading If you see something, say something: can we just live in Christ & not say it?

Seminary nice but not necessary

However, I'm of the opinion that seminary isn't necessary when believers want to learn more about God,… Continue reading Seminary nice but not necessary

Paul’s powerful preaching

I was reading Acts 24 tonight and it gave a gripping account of how the apostle Paul defended himself before the Roman governor Felix in Caesarea.  I admire Paul's eloquence and his ability to highlight the weaknesses of the false accusations spoken against him.  Since Paul was bold in talking about his beliefs and pointed… Continue reading Paul’s powerful preaching
