The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him. - Lamentations 3:24 (ESV)

https://www.krisvallotton.com/why-the-most-creative-and-innovative-leaders-in-the-world-arent-christians

I must admit that reviewing the teachings of certain heretics is more work than others. Joseph Prince for example is so slimy in teachings because the majority of what he teaches is accurate but the traces of leaven will send you straight to hell. Some are just mystically confusing like Bill Johnson, where first you must struggle understanding what he said from a linguistic standpoint and then you can move on to biblically debunking it. Then there are others that are more like low hanging fruit and Kris Vallotton is one of those. I am unsure if I have ever seen him correctly use a scripture. Seriously. He is so over the top in his heresies that he should be able to discern for all yet so many people follow him and Bethel. He eviscerates bible fragments and creates erroneous and absurd theologies out of whole cloth. He writes books about how much God wants you rich and is so NAR dominionist focused that it is unclear if he even understands that there is another life after this. Let us reason through the above linked article from Kris where he invokes multiple heresies in pursuit of Christians leveraging God to become more powerful leaders in this world. I kid you not.

"Have you ever wondered why the most creative, innovative, inventive, intelligent, and gifted leaders in the world often aren't Christians? Think about it. Consider your own life for a moment. Are you leading with out of the box ideas and forging new pathways in the emphasis you're called to? For some of you reading this, I'm confident that you are. But, the vast majority of Believers, on some level, are astutely aware that they are not tapping into their full potential. Many are haunted by the sense that there's more, though they don't know how to breakthrough or worse yet, they're afraid to let go of what they innately know is not God's portion." - Kris Vallotton

Kris starts off with a little purpose driven heresy. Haunted by the sense there is something more? That is straight out of Rick Warren theology. God's portion? For the prosperity junkie Kris is, portion refers to all the temporal goodies God can give him. As they key verse shows us however, God is our portion. That means God is enough. That is why we hope in the Lord and not the trinkets and baubles of this earth. Not for people like Kris and the NAR though. Vallotton has literally written entire books on the subject of how God wants you to be rich. He even invented the insidious theology of a poverty mindset. To Kris poor people choose to be poor. They think poor, therefore they are poor. It is a disgusting teaching that denigrates people and forces them to blame themselves. Look, not everyone is going to be rich and in fact most will never be so. Jesus teaches how hard it is for a rich man to even enter the kingdom of heaven. Matters not to Kris Vallotton, forever seeking carnality and confusing it with God's portion.

"The fact of the matter is modern-day Believers hold tightly to their theologies and can recite them with conviction, yet if you haven't noticed, their noble principles fail to be fruitful. So the million-dollar question remains, if we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16), if we are seated in heavenly places with an advantaged perspective (Ephesians 2:6) why aren't Believers leading in every realm of society?" - Kris Vallotton

Moving on now to straight up NAR dominionism and the seven-mountains mandate. The NAR believe Christians need to influence and lead secular society. Notice what he does here however because another Vallotton trademark is the absolute butchering of God's word. He mocks those that insist on solid theology by declaring them to somehow not be "fruitful" because they are not wealthy. If he understood the bible of course he would know that being fruitful has nothing to do with money. It has everything to do with kingdom matters, not earthly matters. Not content, he mangles two other scriptures. To Kris, we should leverage our position in Christ and the fact that we have the mind of Christ to become rich and powerful. The verse from 1Corinthians has to do with understanding the things of God. Who can understand them except he who has the mind of Christ? How ironic and sad that Kris cannot see that he does not understand the things of God because he actually does not have the mind of Christ. What Kris does to the Ephesians verse however is biblically criminal:

Ugh

Once again I'm seeing a mirror image of the cult I was in and it is totally repulsive. All the same deceitful logic and reasonings are being used. The only difference is the way the same lies are worded. Apparently each false church has it's own particular speak and catch phrases. Thank you Anthony for continuing to expose these guys for what they really are!
