Question: I’m aware that you do not agree with some of the things that the women you listed in your March 2019 newsletter teach, but I hope you would agree that they have helped many women by the things they taught that are biblically sound.
Response: They have at times presented some sound doctrines, but those are mostly scattered atop quicksand that heartbreakingly draws readers in, only to be suffocated by their many false teachings. Consider this collection of just some of their false teachings and practices: 1) They all claim to have continual two-way conversations with God. 2) Much of what they say they hear from God is received as God’s doctrine, even though it contradicts His Word and character. 3) They promote contemplative theology and practices, which are based primarily on subjective content, e.g., feelings, intuition, and experiences. 4) Their “counseling” is psychotherapeutic, contrary to Scripture, and majors in the unbiblical teaching of self-love and self-esteem. 5) They regard generational sins as the basis for life’s problems. 6) They promote numerous false teachers of the Word-Faith Movement and the Contemplative Movement. 7) They are highly ecumenical and ignorant of the false gospel of Roman Catholicism as well as other aberrational groups and cults. 8) They all corrupt the Scriptures by adding their own thoughts, meanings, and words to them. Stepping into all of this theological quagmire hoping to find a gem of truth is spiritually destructive at best.
