Trinity Broadcasting Network Update

Kudos TBN!

Churchface update 4.0

This movie “Return of the Hiding PLace” improved this author’s Churchface rating .

TBN as of tonight aired a world premiere of Return of the Hiding Place.  This movie was over the top by any standard.  The true story of the Dutch Resistance during the Nazi era challenges us in the here and now.

Matt Crouch showed a new level of maturity showing the insight to recognize a truly world class of this riveting movie.   We need far more movies like this while there is still light to work.  When the darkness sets in no man can work.

Rich Wilkerson Jr: CHURCHFACE TRIPWIRE!

grade FCRC grade: F

  • Churchface rating: 9.2

  • Severe churchface,

  • Gross error.

Rich Wilkerson Jr, Pastor recently hit the Churchface Tripwire saying, 

“The law doesn’t work”, – Rich Wilkerson Jr. on TBN.

Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr, states “the law doesn’t work”, similar premise other hyper grace heretics preach. Perhaps if anything doesn’t work, it is more likely Rich’s conclusion based on ignorance and a gross misunderstanding of the Torah.

Consider: the Old Testament more accurately describes the “law” as a teacher, not the “law”.  Considering the difference between a policeman and a teacher is enormous, for entirely different purposes and functions.  Whether or not we consider the Torah as the “law” or a “teacher”, Rich’es sillogism fails.

  1.  Whether or not the Torah is the “law” or a “teacher”, Pastor Rich just threw the Torah in the garbage can.  If the Torah “doesn’t work” we must consider for what purpose we expect the “law” to perform,
  2. If we expect the law to perform as a policemen, then we have just thrown out the basis for every law from the Magna Carta to the U.S constitution; the conclusion of Pastor Rich’es fallacious syllogism is anarchy. The Torah – 1st Five books of the Bible the Torah are disparaged and profaned; no small thing.  We have also declared every policemen and government is the result of a misplaced error, then the continuing conclusion is that anything you wish to do is ok, you are the god of your own destiny…sound familiar? Yes – the satanic bible.
  3. If we expect the law to perform as a teacher, then Pastor Rich’s conclusion just threw the teacher out of our classroom and every other classroom throughout history, tarring and feathering them as ignorant, incompetent bafoons who have never had any relevance or correctness; there is no knowledge – we create it ourself, no truth, it is all subjective, no matter what lawless deeds we do we will arrive in Yahweh’s paradise because there is no longer any sin.
  4. If we teach others the “law doesn’t work”, we then teach others to violate the law with impunity.  Yeshua says he who teaches others to violate the law, he shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven.
  5. Conclusion: Pastor Rich’s statement “The law doesn’t work”, parallels a carpenter who picks up a hammer, trying to paint a door with it then says the hammer doesn’t work.  Anyone can see the hammer works for what it is designed; similar to the law.  The law is a teacher; if it doesn’t work then Yahweh is a deceiver and a liar. If it does work then Pastor Rich is grossly in error.  The law teaches us to know and fear Yahweh, that is the purpose for which Yahweh created it.  David says in Psalm 119, he “loves thy law.  Yeshua says  His yoke is easy and burden is light. I personally attest Yahweh’s Torah is a light burden; however, His grace is available when – not if, I fall short.
  6. The entire issue is to large to cover in this blog article without further reading; however, this article should serve as a watchmen’s warning before he buy’s off on the fallacy that the “law doesn’t work”.
  7. Suggested reading –

  8.   May Yahweh help relieve the reader from the confusion of error.

Jehovah’s Witnesses

JW’s get a B – above average,

Churchface rating 2.5.

JW’s get a low churchface rating having proved themselves over the 6 years this author has met regularly with the Sarasota, Fl group.  The JW’s are by far the most organized,  group on any level whether faith based or secular. Their infrastructure is some of the most efficient, humble and well kept I have ever seen.  A single modest building seating approximately 300 people typically serves about 4 congregations.  Do the math and you find these under the radar congregations are mega churches in cognito.

The JW’s do not take offerings, cajole, beg, manipulate or scheme for money; yet, they are remarkably prosperous.

Aside from the physical, the JW’s have demonstrated themselves as people who Keep Their Word.  I can depend on them to keep their commitments.

The JW’s keep their kids in their meetings.  The children demonstrate remarkable courtesy and intelligence; participating in the main services along with the adults.  The radiate the fact they are treated with respect by their parents.

While we may not agree with some doctrines taught by the JW’s; this author has discovered that when compared against the eternal standard of scripture,  I have been taught error that I have had to relearn.  Overall, the JW’s are far closer to the true scriptural standard than the western babylonian churches.

Perhaps the weakest link in the JW’s goes to replacement theology; they believe they have replaced Israel which leads to a string of fallacious syllogisms.

If the JW’s would honor the Seventh Day Sabbath they would likely find a stunning transformation at the spiritual level as I have; and still in process of Yahweh’s unfolding to me.

It is a sad situation the high level of stigma between the church and the JW’s.  The JW’s have brought profound blessings to maintaining religious liberty at the U.S Supreme court level.  It is said by a Supreme Court Judge the JW’s should get an award for their maintaining 1st amendment rights.

Overall, the JW’s well thought out mental decisions, hospitality, reasonable decisions and vibrant social atmosphere in their services are remarkable and well worth stepping outside our narrow prejudice and learn from the JW’s.
