*DISCLAIMER* Despite some of the questions and comments presented in this interview, the desire was to keep the discussion solely about the dangerous theology and the precious souls who need to be rescued out of the Word of Faith/Prosperity Gospel movement. Check out the interview below and let us know your thoughts!
Emily Rose Massey and her husband, Paul, are revealing the dangerous lies of the Word of Faith movement after realizing they had been deceived by its teachings themselves. Following years of working for Joyce Meyer Ministries, they found themselves deeply deceived by the popular prosperity gospel movement inspired by preachers like Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, Steven Furtick, T.D. Jakes, Bill Johnson and Brian Houston. Emily tells their story of escaping the Word of Faith falsehood and provides valuable pointers for how to recognize the self-serving declarations and heresies that many people continue to fall for today. “The root of the deception,” Emily says, “comes down to Christians who don’t know the Word of God as well as they should.”
- Word of Faith theology falsely teaches that people can use their words to wield faith to give them what they want
- Emily and Paul’s Joyce Meyer Manifesto is available to read on their website, WeWouldRatherHaveJesus.com
- Prosperity gospel preachers treat God like a genie, and they use Scripture like a spell book “Name it and claim it” is a Word of Faith lie that directs people to speak their blessings into existence
