If they claim to be a prophet and are saying God said something? They need to be 100% right in order to be worthy of honor. People who claim to be representing God, as you do? Yeah you need to be right Kris about the maters of God because the very salvation of your listeners is on the line. You can like the Dodger and I can like the Mets. No one is right or wrong there, although you are close. You keep forgetting however that you are supposed to be a pastor and a teacher of the bible. The honor you deserve is directly proportional to being right and you never are when it comes to the things of the Lord.
"There is a lot of hate in the world, especially right now. But hate can't cast out hate, nor will dishonor destroy dishonor. It's a time listen honestly, learn honorably and interact humbly. The goal of communication is not agreement, it's understanding." -- Kris Vallotton
It sounds so right Kris but it's not. As a life coach or motivational speaker, this was great. As a pastor however this was nonsense. It is time to listen, learn and interact with the word of God. You have to understand. Preachers are not trying to get people to agree with them but with God. Your goal as a pastor or teacher of the bible is to convey the Gospel not to try and understand where the person who needs Christ is coming from.
"I too am growing in all of this. I am certainly not a glowing model of perfection and I have not always kept my own values. I have had to apologize to people more times then I care to count. But repentance is good for us, and humility, although painful at times, really positions us for promotion with God. I want to ask you kindly, if you don't value me, please stop following me. It will help make both of our lives more peaceful. Thank you!" -- Kris Vallotton
No offense Kris but it is not my goal, nor my desire to make your life more peaceful. I pray your life is so devoid of peace that you stop selling snake oil for a living. For the record, I don't follow you because I do not have to. You broadcast your false teachings for all to see. Through this small glimpse however you have provided us with some insight into the core deception you are under that is shared by all false teachers I would imagine. Decades of purpose driven, seeker friendly theology has convinced you that this is about you. So when someone, innocently or not, questioned why you would quote someone as heretical as TD Jakes you could not see how it was not about you. It was not even about Jakes. It was about God and His Gospel. You remember them don't you Kris?
I guess not.
