But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. - Galatians 1:8-9 (ESV)

Well that didn't take long. On Friday we reported on the kerfuffle between God TV and Bethel's latest dominionist heretic, Sean Feucht. For background, Sean Feucht was a Bethel worship leader who used the pandemic to both launch a political career and travel the country doing faux-revival concerts in the most inappropriate of venues, such as the aftermath of the George Floyd murder. During that year, Feucht's ministry went from earning around $200,000 to over 5.3 million dollars. If you were curious, he is the only employee of his ministry. Not a bad first grift but what do you expect since he has been trained by Bill Johnson? He actually parlayed this into a failed bid for Congress, where he ran on a platform of criticizing the government for trying to stop the spread of COVID. He is the huckster the bible warns us about. He is the hireling the bible warns us about. He is apostate through and through.

That brings us to God TV, who is just as apostate. Just looking at the TV lineup for today, God TV will be showing, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Andrew Wommack, Joseph Prince, Sid Roth, Dr. Michael Brown, Kenneth Copeland, John Hagee, and Benny Hinn. That is just one day! This is a who's who of apostate false teachers! This is why it was stunning to see God TV correctly stand for the word of God against Sean Feucht last week. It all started when Sean retweeted a message from Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis. Now, DeSantis is no Christian. He is however a ruthless politician who desires to be president and knows he cannot get there without co-opting the Christian vote. So, he tweeted the following nonsense:

"You gotta be ready for battle. So put on the full armor of God. Take a stand against the Left's schemes. Stand firm with the belt of truth buckled around your waist. You will face fire from flaming arrows, but the shield of faith will protect." - Governor Ron DeSantis

Beloved, at first blush this may seem harmless, but it is not. God specifically tells us in multiple places in the bible that we are not to change the word of God either by deletion, addition or replacement. DeSantis reference an important set of scriptures designed to teach believers the importance of the armor of God for standing against the enemy! For the politically confused, the "left" is not our enemy. People whom political forces try to convince us are "woke" are not our enemy. The flaming arrows are lies from the devil, not Joe Biden. The shield of faith grants us faith in the word of God to stand against the lies of Satan. You cannot trivialize it to mean protection from people who dare to have a different political opinion than yours. It undermines the entire point God has here! God TV had enough and drew the line at rewriting the word of God by calling out Sean Feucht:

"Precious friends, we don't post this lightly. Perhaps Sean did not fully realize what he was sending out. But this is exactly the opposite of what Paul is communicating in Ephesians 6. In fact, this could be considered blasphemous. The passage is specifically saying that our battle is NOT against "the left" or "the right" or anything that could be considered "flesh and blood." Our battle is against Satan.

"Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against THE DEVIL's schemes. For our struggle is NOT against FLESH AND BLOOD" (Eph. 6:11-12).

"Changing the word of God for political purposes (or for any reason!) is deeply concerning and dangerous. Sadly, many have merged politics with Jesus, when in fact, Jesus transcends politics. That is not to say that we should not be active politically. We should. But turning political devotion into devotion to Jesus leads to posts like this. Using God's word for man's purposes is extremely unwise and places you in a perilous position. Remember, Eve was tricked when Satan suddenly changed the word of God." - God TV

As spot on as God TV was for the charge of blasphemy, you could tell they did not really want to do this. This "rebuke" was littered with touchy-feely language. Perhaps Sean didn't realize. They went on to brag about Sean and the work he does so it was expected that God TV would cave, especially after Sean's "response."

"It's time to tell the truth about some people in the church. They are desperate to be liked by the left despite everything they have said about Christians. They call us bigots, racists, etc." and some, like GOD TV, want to apologize. They have gone full woke. They don't have the guts to be honest about what some crazy politicians want to do to our country." - Sean Feucht

So, God TV goes from apostate partner to woke scourge against the church in a hot minute. Of course, God TV never asked for Feucht to apologize for these manufactured offenses, just for the blasphemous retweet. You remember the tweet, don't you? Feucht quickly swept it to the side to pretend this was about some imagined, larger cultural war. Only the devil can convince the church that their enemy are the people who may need the gospel the most.

By the time I had published the first devotional on this major development of one branch of the apostate church rebuking another, God TV had apologized. After all, you have to know what side your bread is buttered on. God TV only stands to make money by promoting Sean Feucht, not criticizing him. So, despite Sean calling God TV "woke", they caved so fast it made my head spin:
