Kris Vallotton, Friend of God Theology and Understanding Slavery to Jesus Christ

By       (Page 2 of 4 pages)   No comments

"Exodus 32:9-14 says (emphasis added), "The Lord said to Moses, "I have seen this people, and behold, they are an obstinate people. Now then let Me alone, that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them; and I will make of you a great nation." Then Moses entreated the Lord his God, and said, "O Lord, why does Your anger burn against Your people whom You have brought out from the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians speak, saying, 'With evil intent He brought them out to kill them in the mountains and to destroy them from the face of the earth'? Turn from Your burning anger and change Your mind about doing harm to Your people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants to whom You swore by Yourself, and said to them, 'I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heavens, and all this land of which I have spoken I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.'" So the Lord changed His mind about the harm which He said He would do to His people." When God changed His mind in these verses, do you think He had made a mistake in the first place? Or maybe He was just getting old and forgot His promises? Absolutely not! I think that sometimes when God prophesies to us, He's testing our hearts rather than determining our destiny." -- Kris Vallotton

Beloved, this is so bad but we must understand that when your mission is to even the playing field with God you will simply not see what should be plain before your eyes. The Bible cannot be any clearer. God does not change His mind. Numbers says that He is not man that He would change His mind. James teaches us that God does not change like shifting shadows. In Malachi God declares -- I do not change! Maybe if Kris spent more time trying to find Jesus in the Bible he would spend less time missing Him. Moses is a type of Christ interceding to spare us from the wrath of God. What does Kris conclude? That God sometimes lies. Read between the lines here. He sometimes prophesies to us as a test rather than determining our destiny? That would mean God is the one being willfully deceptive and that is simply not in His unyielding moral standing. Now Kris starts to reveal how the friend of God theologies has really damaged everything he believes:

"Moses' response showed God that he was a leader. God's response to Moses shows us that he is a friend of God, not just a slave. If you're a slave of God then you only have a one-way relationship with Him and you just do what you're told. However, if you're a friend of God then you are invited into a relationship and an interaction with Him. Friends influence friends. God tells friends what He's thinking. In Chapter 33 of Exodus, God said He'd be faithful to His promise but that He wasn't going with the Israelites to the Promised Land. He'd rather send an angel to go ahead of them." -- Kris Vallotton

Good thing Moses had to show an omniscient God that he was a leader. Beloved this entire paragraph and indeed article, is simply made up from the deceitful and poorly taught heart of Kris Vallotton. The Bible does not say that if you were a slave you only have a one way relationship with God. Friends influence friends? Are you understanding what heresy Vallotton is spewing here? God is not supposed to merely "influence" you and under no circumstances do we influence the Creator of the Universe. The other important takeaway here is that Kris is right that God tells us what He thinks. The disconnect is that we find what He thinks in the Bible and that is the one thing Kris will not follow.

"Moses said to God that he'd rather be in the wilderness with God than in the promised land with an angel. So God said He'd go with them. This is another sign of friendship over slavery. Some people who are just slaves may see signs and wonders, but have no idea that they only have an angel and don't have God's presence with them. When you're a friend of God, you care more about His presence than His promises. God wants to move us from slavery into friendship. He's shifting the church now because He doesn't want a bride who is a slave girl. Do you see yourself as a slave or friend of God? And maybe the more challenging question is do you value His presence over His promises? Of course God is faithful and fulfills His word, without a doubt! But sometimes that doesn't always look the way we imagine. In the place where you are holding onto His promises, will you hold even tighter to His presence?" -- Kris Vallotton

Now let's have a little fun with words as we get into the deeper revelation here. There is a word that despite appearing over 1100 times in Hebrew in the Old Testament is only translated correctly one time. In the New Testament, this word appears over 150 times in the original Greek but it is only translated correctly a handful of times and usually then in the abstract.

That word beloved, is slave.

It has been translated as servant, hired hand, bondservant and helper. None of these words mean slave directly. It was decided at the time of modern translation that the word slave contained too negative a connotation. The result is generations of people who have been soft peddling their relationship with God that made them ripe for picking when friend of God theologies came along. Usually the verse given to support friend of God theology is John 15:15:
