For three years Paul warned the Ephesian elders night and day with tears that even some of them would speak “perverse things to draw away disciples after them” (Acts:20:28-31). The charismatic movement in particular follows after men and women who speak perverse things and promise signs and wonders, among them Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Marilyn Hickey, Frederick K. C. Price, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, Yonggi Cho, and others.
The above-above named individuals may sincerely believe they are serving Christ, but they have perverted the Scriptures. The power of the Holy Spirit is emphasized and sought with little regard to the fact that He is the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of truth. But the occult power manifest through false prophets causes their followers to overlook all else.
