"The religious spirit is a task master that is never satisfied with your efforts and always asking for more. The Holy Spirit is your greatest cheerleader, drawing out the best in you, even when you make mistakes." -- Wanda Alger

What have you reduced the Spirit of the Living God to? He is just a cheerleader to you now? He is there to put a Band-Aid on your boo-boos? Those mistakes you casually reference are called sins that require your repentance. Your false teachings are never to be tolerated lest some fall away because of them while others are introduced to your false christ who cannot save them. I know this must seem like a game to you Wanda but it is not to those who discern and care about the sheep of the Lord. We insist that everything you teach about or for God be accurate and biblical. If that is now the definition of a taskmaster then a taskmaster I am.

"Your journey is meant to be one of freedom, joy and a never-ending sense of wonder and awe. Even through the trials, setbacks and personal weaknesses, the Holy Spirit always sees a way through and will empower you to keep moving. Your destiny is ahead of you, not behind you. It's not about "adding up," but jumping in! It's redemption, not religion, that brings life to the dead and wholeness to the broken. As we determine to follow Jesus' example and listen to the Holy Spirit instead of a politically correct religious spirit, we can be assured of fulfilling the Father's purpose. In the end, it's not whether or not we get it "right." It's about who we travel with and discovering the endless possibilities of heaven inside of us that the flesh can never reach. "So then, beloved ones, the flesh has no claims on us at all, and we have no further obligation to live in obedience to it. For when you live controlled by the flesh, you are about to die. But if the life of the Spirit puts to death the corrupt ways of the flesh, we then taste his abundant life. The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit" (Rom. 8:12-14, TPT)." -- Wanda Alger

Do not buy what the NAR is selling. We are not on some mystical journey. The freedom and joy we have is only found in Christ and He is His word. If Alger were selling the notion of never ending wonder and awe in who God is -- I would be all aboard. That is not however what she is selling. Who has this entire thing been about? It seems the Holy Spirit is only there to empower Wanda. To encourage her when she is wrong. To hold her hand as she marches towards some mystical sense of destiny and purpose God never promised her. You cannot claim to want to listen to the Holy Spirit while relegating the word of God to some second-class citizen. Dear Lord consider what she says here:

In the end, it's not whether or not we get it "right." It's about who we travel with and discovering the endless possibilities of heaven inside of us that the flesh can never reach.

In the end it most assuredly is about getting it right. Those that have it wrong will discover that Christ never knew them. This isn't the Wizard of Oz. It is sadly ironic that her closing scripture reference is in reference to sin. What is sadder is she cares so little for the verity of scripture that she uses the Passion abomination. Read her quote from The passion and now read what God actually said:

So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. -- Romans 8:12-14 (ESV)

Notice the difference? God never said taste his abundant life. He never said anything about being moved by the impulses of the spirit. The entire passage is mangled beyond recognition. Alger does not care because it fits her esoteric and pseudo-spiritual beliefs. This is an important point to close on. These Roman verses teach us that if we are truly led by the Holy Spirit we are sons of God. Wanda Alger believes in a false NAR gospel that leads her to a false christ and ultimately a false conversion. There is a real price to be paid for putting our faith in a different spirit and do not fool yourself. That is what Wanda Alger has been selling. It is what the NAR sells every day. This false spirit is demonic by default and will tell you everything you wanted to hear. That the bible is about you. That the powers of God are yours. That your very words can create just like God. That He wants you wealthy to the point of overflow and when you sin, He will just pick you up and have a good old laugh about it as He encourages you to just try harder and aim higher next time. Anyone who dares to disagree or throw the bible in your face? Well they are just a legalist with a religious spirit. The Holy Spirit is religious Wanda. He does care greatly about the word of God and I would rather be holding His hand than whatever has got a hold of you.
