Exposing Rhonda Byrne of the book “the Secret”; Joel Osteen; and the “Word of Faith” heresies

John McArthur exposes the heresies of Joel Osteen and Rhonda Byrne, author of “The Secret”, and the Word of Faith Heresies

In his message, “Becoming a Better You?”, McArthur mentions at the beginning of his lecture, the lecture before him, by Michael Horton, which is an overview of the problems with many Evangelicals today – they have left the Bible, doctrine, and Christ for pragmatism, success, Psychological feelings, their own selfish desires.

Michael Horton on “Christ-less Christianity” – “Moralistic and Therapuetic Deism”

Both are excellent.

“The Secret” tells you to look inward to yourself and “follow your heart”.  No, that is not right.  Look outward to Christ. Looking inward will only lead you to narcissism and selfishness. Jeremiah 17:9; Genesis 6:5; Mark 7:20-23

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)
