If you have seen any of our videos by now you probably get that at 1 Stone Ministries our passion against False Teachers and False Gospels burns strong and deep sometimes.
It is not our intent to hurt anyone’s feelings or insult anyone. However, what comes with political correctness and fuzzy logic acceptance of false doctrine and false teachers? A very Heavy Spiritual Toll.
It is vitally important to speak out when respected teachers start speaking in heresies or spreading a false gospel is because “The Great Commission” is more than just telling people the Gospel. It’s protecting the unsaved from false Gospels and heresy so they don’t go around the rest of their lives thinking they are saved only to wind up in hell.
It’s also very important to protect New Christians from False Teachers to prevent them from being led astray.
We also need to protect New and in some cases even experienced Christians from falling to fables and being stumbled by False Teachers and heretical Pastors.
There are so many False Teachers, False Prophets, False Apostles and False Christ’s parading and being paraded, and making so much noise with their false doctrines and false gospels that sometimes in order to be heard, you need to pray, ask for strength and jump up and down and shout a little to be seen past the ones speaking falsehood.
It is truly just like the Keenau Reeves Movie “The Matrix.” You have the Blue Pill to wake people up to the truth, and people are plugged into the idiot box and the internet and a flood of false teaching is bathing them in ignorance of true doctrine and the True Gospel of Christ. Just when you start waking up and thinking you understand what’s going on around you… Then Bam Cipher stabs you in the back and doesn’t care that the steak is fake, just like sin it’s delicious.
3. Christian Hero Worship
You can call me goofy all you want, but there is a reason why Super Hero comics like Super Man and the rest were introduced into the media. Super Heroes never do anything wrong and are always right.
Many speaking from the Pulpit have been turned into modern-day Christian Heroes. Many who have been mesmerized by their garbage theology have been brain numbed into worshiping them like heroes.
4. People with a False Gospel like Jesse Duplantis and Kenneth Copeland
People like Jesse Duplantis, “hero” for people in the South, the man recently asked for $15 million dollars for his 5th private jet. (1) Around the same time, he was seen on a show with Kenneth Copeland and they were making fun of the common man explaining why they couldn’t sit next to people in coach, (if ever they had to fly out quickly and Business or First Class were sold out they didn’t want to sit with the common folk.) If Jesse Duplantis were truly a bible believing minister of the Gospel, he would relish the opportunity to speak with the lost about Christ and plant the seed. During the show with Copeland people just laughed and applauded.
You have people that I have respected the ministry of for years, like Pastor Robert Jeffress who are standing up for and applauding the works of Paula White.(2) Paula White not only is a woman preaching and leading over men in her own church but she says that we are all little Gods. She is one of the originators of the TBN heresy that came out with TBN’s founder in combination with Pentecostal pastor from the Seattle, WA area Casey Treat and others like White “Dogs beget dogs, cats beget cats, Elephants beget Elephants and we are made in the image of God… we must be little gods. We are divine like God!” Paula White has been strutting her divine stuff to the Whitehouse and most Southern Baptist leaders stand for her heretical garbage.
When Robert Jeffress was called on the carpet for being one of the positive endorsers of her book, his only comment was the following, “My schedule is so busy, I can’t read every book word for word. But what I did see was really her autobiographical account of her past and how God redeemed her life.”
When pressed further about her being one of the gang leaders of the Prosperity Gospel, Jeffress could only say the following, “All I can say is she claims not to be.”
When Jeffress was pressed on the subject further and asked if he’d done any acrtual investigation on the subject of Paula White and Prosperity and other heresies… he could only state the following. “No, no . . . I’m too busy in my own ministry to launch an investigation.”
Well Gee Mr Jeffress, don’t you think before you positively endorse her book, making yourself and Jesus look like a fool, don’t you think you should do a little background investigation. You had enough time to write your endorsement of her heresy!
Bonus Reasons: People like Paula White and Robert Jeffress and Franklin Graham and Jack Graham
Could there be at least one reason why Jeffress has blindly and ignorantly signed on to one of Paula White’s latest books (latest at least at the time of its publication.) Jeffress is on the same “Christian” counsel of President Trump. Along with Jeffress there are several people which are a part of the Southern Baptist group who represent Trump and also endorsed White’s book. Jack Graham, Ralph Reed, Franklin Graham, Greg Laurie, and Jerry Falwell Jr.—are facing criticism for endorsing White’s new book, Something Greater. All the evangelical leaders who endorsed White’s book, except Franklin Graham, sit on Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board, which White chairs. Franklin Graham and Greg Laurie have since removed their tweets endorsing White’s book.
Southern Baptist Pastor.

Calls Trump a Christian President
Proudly supports Trump as part of his
Evangelical Advisory Board (EAB)

(Greg Laurie removed his support of White's book
after receiving a lot of negative feedback.
Apparently like Jeffres, he was just too busy
to read the book before giving it a glowing review,
until after the negative press came his way
So much for your Ethos Laurie.
In the words of Dr. Phil
"JACK WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?"

At least the SBC says it answers to no one
and is honest about and open about its 21 century heresies
Ralph Reed -
Don't know a thing about him
Other than he's a
"Christian" politician wink wink
But I bet you can guess the following:
What Church Group He's with
Whose EAB he's a member of
Whose Book he positively reviewed
You ask the average person, (in America especially,) what the Jingle is for McDonald’s Big Mac and they immediately chuckle and start singing, “Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles…” When they’re done they chuckle and smile with some pride.
You ask the average person over 30 what the introduction was to the old Superman show, “Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound!” Mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet is really the greatest superhero of them all who “fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way!”
Yet, you ask the average church-goer what the real meaning behind the parable of The Prodigal Son is, and they’ll look at you with the proverbial “Deer in the headlights” look.
Ask a typical Sunday morning pew warmer what the principals and precepts are of the stories of Abraham and Isaac going to sacrifice Isaac, or the story of Ruth and Boaz, or the story of Esther and her cousin Mordecai and how they point to Jesus in the New Testament on the cross as our hope and salvation, they’ll not only look at you with the deer in the headlights look, they’ll change the subject or walk away.
You bring this to people’s attention and they will giggle nervously and they don’t really know how to respond.
What is really sad, when people like Ray Comfort one of the founders of The Way of the Master, ask people on the street or in city parks similar questions, many of them get the answers partially correct because they remember stories from when they were little and their parents made them go to Sunday School.
It is very obvious after watching Ray Comfort in his ministry for years that he is always defending the gospel. He is definitely not one of those who is a false teacher. You can also tell by watching him and listening to him that he shares our love for our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. I won’t say that about just anyone.
Why is it that so many people that have attended church for years can’t even give the answers on major precepts and principles of the bible, but they remember the 2 all beef patty commercial from the 70’s, and they can remember faster than a speeding bullet and defending truth, justice and the American way from the 1950’s?
It is a real conundrum, especially in America. Around 13 years ago I was chatting with someone online from Europe and I mentioned that America was really the last bastion of Christian faith in the world. The person laughed at me and called me an idiot. How true he was.
It’s obvious that the pastors of most Mega Churches only started their church to make a great living because there are so many lambs willing to be fleeced of their hard-earned wages. People like Joel Osteen that refuse to call sin a sin, despite how clear scripture is on it. People like Rick Warren who has a side business of selling sermons for lazy pastors that don’t want to have to work all week long perfecting next Sundays script. Rick got his start with New Ager Robert Schuller from Crystal Cathedral fame. Robert Schuller was the picture of some very telling scriptures.
Robert Schuller and Rick Warren are Poster Boys for the epic story of The Wolf in Sheeps Clothing.
2 Timothy 3:2-5
What stands today of Schuller’s ecumenical, new age, positive attitude while you’re going to hell works?
- He had a falling away with his son and after years lost his church and lost his son.
- He taught many new age, mystical teachings from the likes of Norman Vincent Peale and Neal Donald Walsh. He led many young people astray like Rick Warren who have moved on to lead thousands of others astray. What we see in church culture today mostly stems from Robert Schuller and Rick Warren’s Church Building and P.E.A.C.E. plan training.
It is ironically sad that in 2011 Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral was sold to the local Arch Diocese and it is now a Catholic gathering place(4). The most beautiful “sanctuary” in the world now being used to lead even more astray. Schuller in his supposed Christian ministry and the Crystal Cathedral surely fit the “For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.”
There have been former new age cultists like Warren Smith yelling and screaming on the mountain top trying to get people’s attention for over a decade.
Deep down inside Poor Warren must feel like Neo trying to wake people out of the Matrix. He’s been going at this for over a decade.
There have been many others, like Ray Youngin and Roger Oakland along with Warren Smith since the 90’s. People like Warren Smith were former leaders in New Age and the Occult and see what is happening in the church and like the Prophets of old are mostly mocked and ignored by those comfortably warming their pews on Sunday and listening to the Hero of their choice. Warren Smith has written several books from his unique perspective on “The Emergant Church” “New Spirituality” “New Age Christianity” “Christ Conciousness” because he was formerly in the New Age. Do you think most pastors and churches fight to get him to come to their church, like they should? NO!!!
Far too many in today’s American excuse for a Church are spiritually Blind and deaf to the lies being sent their way. Too lazy to read the Bible for themselves so they would be able to stand on the Word of God. They rely on their church leaders to give them a gospel truth from the Word of God taught by Jesus, Paul, Peter or James and instead they just get words of men from the 19th and 20th Centuries.
The following scripture tells us so much about what is occurring in the world and even in supposedly evangelical churches which are masquerading as evangelical churches in name only.
2 Timothy 3:1
1 Timothy 4:1
If you pay attention to what goes on around you and is being passed off for theology, and you are a true blood bought Christian, it should pain your heart, it should give you a righteous anger (towards the sin not the sinner) it should cause you to want to do something about it.
Today we see why scriptures tell us that in the latter days, what is good will be called evil and what is evil will be called Good.
Not to take away from Warren Smith and Lighthouse Trails Research, but what they found in the 90’s about Rick Warren and Ken Blanchard and others like him are just the tip of the iceberg of abominable heresy. Some of our next few videos and articles will be bringing out some well known pillars of the modern faith community that we once thought were on the rock and rock solid on their theology. Now they are teaching accursed heresy that could have only been inspired in them by Lucifer himself.
We wonder sometimes if the way we feel after 10-12 hours of watching videos and reading articles of some of the abomination masquerading as Christian Theology is the way Jesus and Paul felt in their day.
There are days where we literally want to bang our heads against the wall. We wonder if people like AW Tozer or Harry A. Ironside or Arno C. Gaebeline or J. Vernon McGee had to deal with as many false prophets and false teachers teaching a false gospel as we do today.
We knew that false teachers and false prophets would be coming, because Jesus told us they would, but the audacity of blasphemous heresies, the arrogance of some of the false teachers is unbelievable. Even Paul had to deal with false gospels and hero worship in his day. He mentions “Some say I am of Apollos and others say I am of so and so…”
But still you expect those that say they are Christians to, oh I don’t know ACT LIKE CHRISTIANS!!! This among other things, explains our 4 Reasons For Our Passion Against False Teachers & False Gospels
There are days where we are extremely depressed from the overwhelming amount of heresy being passed off for truth and we just want to stay under the covers in the comfort and safety of sleep.
It seems like every day you turn around and there is a new heresy being taught by a False Teacher. It’s almost like a sleeper cell of False teachers have been set to “awaken” at a certain time frame and start pushing a heresy or two.
There are days where we just want to barph spiritually because of the filth we watch to bring the truth to people.
However, in the end our God’s grace is sufficient and his love reminds us of 4 Reasons For Our Passion against False Teachers and False Gospels
. Well, honestly and truly, there are a lot more than 4 reasons that our passion runs so deep!
