Exposing Error: Tommy Tenney

"Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar" (Proverbs 30:5–6)

I found this detailed and focused indictment of the heresy of Tommy Tenney over at Personal Freedom Outreach.

According to Personal Freedom Outreach's bio, Tommy Tenney is one of the darlings of TBN (The Blasphemy Network), is a charismatic speaker and is the author of several books, including The God Chasers, The God Catchers, God's Dream Team, God's Favorite House and others. Appearances at the Brownsville Revival and on the cover of Charisma magazine have added to his exposure and he has become a very marketable commodity. Because of his success, Tenney has hired 15 people to assist him and receives up to 500 invitations a month to speak.

Sadly there is overwhelming evidence that Mr. Tenney's false theology hails from the desolate, barren spiritual wasteland of modern American evangelicalism wherein men are blown about by every wind of doctrine. He is the corrupted spiritual peer of apostate word-faith heretics such as Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, T.D. Jakes and their ilk.

May the Lord of Hosts open the eyes of the deceived masses who follow after these blind leaders of the blind! May our Shepherd call His sheep out from among the goats who are being led astray and led to the slaughter by these wolves in sheep's clothing! Amen.
