Question: If you desire the same salvation and grace that Paul preached about, it is necessary that you line up with William Branham's teachings. There are 10,000 churches following Branham today! Please respond.
Response: The Bible says that there "is one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus." Nowhere does it say that there must also be on earth a mediator between Christ and man, or someone who speaks for Christ. I am astonished that you would claim that Paul was the man who spoke for Christ in his day (what about the other apostles, the many evangelists, prophets, teachers, etc. in Paul's day?) and that William Branham is the only one who speaks for Christ in our day! There is no such person.
You ask me to refute the teaching that I must "line up with William Branham's teachings" or be lost. I ask you to show me in the Bible where it says that! We call our ministry The Berean Call, after the Bereans who searched the Scriptures to check up on Paul's teachings. We must in like manner test William Branham's teachings. I have done so, and declare him to be a false prophet! I don't want to offend you or lose your friendship, but I must speak what I believe to be the truth, as you know I must.
Branham denied the Trinity. He taught the "serpent seed" doctrine, that Eve's sin was having sex with the Serpent—and that there is a remnant in the world today of people who are literally the seed of Satan and who can never be saved. He takes Jesus' words, "You are of your father the devil," to mean physically begotten of Satan through the Serpent in the Garden. Of course, if any of Noah's sons were of the serpent seed, than all must have been since they had the same father and mother—and thus all mankind (since we all come from Noah) must be of the serpent seed and beyond redemption. Obviously false, but he taught it by "revelation knowledge."
Branham denied that hell was eternal; declared that for a woman to cut her hair was grounds for divorce; and that unborn children are not alive until they take their first breath; that while Jesus lived on earth He was only the Son of man, not the Son of God, and that He became the Son of God only after His ascension to heaven; and that he (Branham) was the "angel" of Revelation:3:14 and 10:7, the prophet of the Laodicean age, and that the true evidence of being of God was following William Branham. He had other heresies, but these should suffice.
