Jude 1:3-4 - "Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the [a]saints. For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand [b]marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ"


 Rethinkinghell.com is an apostate group that promotes and defends the false teaching of "evangelical conditionalism"(annihilationsim).


According to rethinkinghell.com

"Today there is a growing number of evangelical Christians who reject the majority doctrine of hell known as “eternal conscious torment” (ECT), as well as the more controversial minority position of universal reconciliation.

 These Christians are embracing a third historical and biblical alternative known as conditional immortality (CI)—or simply “conditionalism”—which is also known as “annihilationism” in reference to God’s final judgment of the unsaved.

 Conditionalism is the view that life or existence is the Creator’s provisional gift to all, which will ultimately either be granted forever on the basis of righteousness (by grace, through faith), or revoked forever on the basis of unrighteousness.

 Evangelical conditionalists believe that the saved in Christ will receive glory, honor and immortality, being raised with an incorruptible body to inherit eternal life (Romans 2:7). The unsaved will be raised in shame and dishonor, to face God and receive the just condemnation for their sins. When the penalty is carried out, they will be permanently excluded from eternal life by means of a final death (loss of being; destruction of the whole person; Matthew 10:28)"(http://rethinkinghell.com/about/statement)


 Evangelical conditionalism (annihilationsim) is simply false and is apostasy.
"The word "apostasy" comes from the Greek apostasia, which is translated "falling away" in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The word is closely related to the Greek word for "divorce."
Apostates are those who fall away from the true faith, abandoning what they formerly professed to believe. The term describes those whose beliefs are so deficient as to place them outside the pale of true Christianity. For example, a liberal denomination that denies the authority of Scripture or the deity of Christ is an apostate denomination. True Christians do not apostatize. Those who fall away into apostasy demonstrate that their faith was never real to begin with (1 John 2:19)"(https://www.gty.org/library/questions/QA78/What-is-an-apostate).


Evangelical conditionalism(annihilationism) as promoted by rethinkinghell.com is apostasy because it denies  God's reality on hell and those promoting twist scripture to do so. "There will always be, according to the Word of God, assaults on the truth from the inside and the Bible calls this, at least in one aspect, apostasy, that is a departure from the faith among those who have professed it, who have known it. We know that in the last days, as we are certainly in the last days, there will be the apostasy. Second Thessalonians 2 verse 3 says, "The day of the Lord will not come until the apostasy comes." Jesus even predicted at the end of the age that there would be a falling away from the faith. As we know as well, the Apostle Paul warned about this departure from the faith. The Apostle John warned about this defection and this departure from the faith. And John went to great lengths, as we learned in the three epistles, to help us discern our own true spiritual condition and recognize spirits that are not of God, but are rather the spirit of error, not the Spirit of truth. Apostasy is characterized by denial of the truth. It can be a denial, for example, of God's reality. It can be a denial of the true nature of God. It can start there. Anyone who calls himself a Christian and denies the true nature of God has defected from the truth. They are those, according to 2 Timothy 3:5, who hold to a form of godliness but deny its power. They want you to believe that they belong within the realm of the true faith, but in reality they have denied true godliness and its power. They are, in fact, not at all lovers of God, writes Paul in that same passage"(https://www.gty.org/library/sermons-library/65-5/apostates-be-warned-part-1)

It is very simple to see that rethinkinghell.com is spreading apostasy by comparing their false claims to scripture in context in light of 2 Timothy 3:16-17.

To know what God does not say about Hell, all you need to know is what He says about hell according to His Holy word on context. This is how you can discern truth from error for God's glory (Acts 17:11).

Here is a video on the reality of Hell with scripture in context for God's glory  -




To rethinkinghell.com, repent and believe the gospel while God has given you time or perish apart from God in hell for your sins. 2 Peter 2:1-3 is clear.

2 Peter 2:1-3 " But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep."

Introduction
According to www.rodpickens.com,
"Prophet Roderickus Pickens was born October 25th in Memphs, TN. Raised

in the normal tradition and attendance of church, he had a blurred vision of salvation and biblical understanding. At the age of 18, Prophet Pickens began to have encounters, out of body experiences, and dreams of Meeting Jesus at Judgement. 

 At a very young age, Prophet Pickens was a very strange child. He would say things that seemed so long distant and they would come to past the moment he says it. Being in a broken family, he struggled to find his place as a young man and at the age of 18, Prophet Pickens got saved. From a very lonely and traumatic past, he had a thirst for God that was unbelievable. He desired God more than he desired to breathe. After serving many years in ministry God spoke to him and told him to drop all his titles that were given by Man to become a son. 


 Upon this execution, devastation hit his life but obedience began. A few months later God spoke to him and revealed to him that he ordained him as a prophet to the nations. Prophet Rod then came under an apostolic covering under the leadership of Apostle Tina Edwards, where the fear of being obedient was broken. Being trained in the Prophetic and taking School of the Prophets Courses, His journey as a Prophet Began. 


Prophet Pickens has been blessed with a ministry of Healing and Deliverance with signs, wonders, and miracles. The testimony reports of healings and supernatural interactions have been witnessed and credited to his ministry. 


Prophet Rod has done revivals, musical performances, and much more.  After years of ministry, Prophet Pickens has become a recognized prophetic voice: A preacher of Holiness and a student of the Word. Roderickus Pickens is renowned for his prophetic accuracy, humility, and passion. God has equipped Prophet Pickens to see and speak into the spirit realm to confirm, shift, and change.  In 2016, around the month of June, Prophet Rod release a video of "The out of body experience" where it went viral and over 2 Million views where confirmed and thousands of souls have been saved and restored".

Biblical Problems with the false teachings of false prophet Roderickus Pickens
  
1. Roderickus Pickens claims to be a "prophet"-  Biblically speaking there are no modern day prophets - " In the New Testament, the gift of the office of prophet was a temporary one granted by God for the purpose of building His Church. Contrary to the apostles, who had broad ministries, these men had localized ministries within local churches, as we see illustrated in such places as Acts 11:21-28 and Acts 13:1.
Scripture shows us that the prophets of the New Testament had two primary purposes:

  • They were gifted men given to the Church and appointed by God (Eph. 4:11, 1 Cor. 12:28) for the purpose of helping to lay the foundation of the Church (Eph. 2:20).
  •  
    They, like the apostles, received God’s revelation (Eph. 3:5) and truth and proclaimed it to their churches. It is important to remember that the early Church did not have a completed Bible, so God granted this revelation for the purpose of teaching His message to the Church. The New Testament prophets also spoke forth and taught the apostles’ doctrine. Everything taught by these prophets had to be consistent with the teaching of the apostles (1 Cor. 14:36-37).   
 So, are prophets still needed today? Looking at the two functions listed above, we can see that the office of prophet is one that is no longer necessary and has ceased within the Church because:


  •  The foundation of the Church was laid long ago.
  •  God’s revealed Word was completed with the close of the New Testament canon.  

The Church’s foundation does not need to be laid again, and there is no need for further revelation beyond what God has provided for us in His complete Word, the Bible. Today we are blessed to have Scripture as our complete and final authority in all things (2 Tim. 3:16-17). If someone now claims to have received a “special revelation,” we must test it against Scripture. If it is contrary to the Word of God, then it must be rejected. If it is consistent with Scripture, then we have to ask why an “extra” word was necessary if its truth is already contained in the Bible. So while we always need men who are willing to proclaim boldly the Word of God as contained in Scripture (as pastors, teachers, and evangelists), there is no need for the office of “prophet” as it existed in the New Testament"(https://carm.org/question-modern-prophets).

2. Roderickus Pickens does not have an official statement of faith on his website-  The church is the pillar of truth- 1 Timothy 3:15 and the church is called to proclaim the gospel- Matthew 28:19-20.
It is of no surprise that false prophet Rod Pickens has no official statement of faith on the gospel with scripture in context and other essential Christian doctrines so that discerning Christians may test to know if he is of God in light of scripture like 1 John 4:1(which he is not). Essential christian doctrines are true that true Christians cannot deny . For more on essential doctrines, read this - https://carm.org/essential-christian-doctrines . False prophet Rod has no official statement of beliefs yet he has a page asking for financial donations to his false ministry.


3. Roderickus Pickens promotes the false teaching of modern day apostles - From his heretical biography, he states "Prophet Rod then came under an apostolic covering under the leadership of Apostle Tina Edwards, where the fear of being obedient was broken. Being trained in the Prophetic and taking School of the Prophets Courses, His journey as a Prophet Began". Tina Edwards is false teacher and apostle.
"Biblically, an apostle was someone who was involved with Jesus and/or knew of Jesus before his crucifixion and after his crucifixion. Consider the following two sets of verses.


  • Acts 1:21-26, “It is therefore necessary that of the men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us— 22 beginning with the baptism of John, until the day that He was taken up from us—one of these should become a witness with us of His resurrection. 23 And they put forward two men, Joseph called Barsabbas (who was also called Justus), and Matthias. 24 And they prayed, and said, You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen 25 to occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place. 26 And they drew lots for them, and the lot fell to Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.”
  • 1 Cor. 9:1, “Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?”
 Notice that in Acts when the apostles are deciding on a replacement for Judas, Peter speaks of the necessity of someone who had been with Christ from the beginning. In 1 Corinthians Paul defends his apostleship by claiming to have seen the risen Lord. Therefore, we can conclude biblically that a true apostle in the New Testament style is no longer possible because it would require that the person had been with Christ and/or have seen the risen Lord"(https://carm.org/apostles-today)

3. False Prophet Roderickus Pickens lies about having dreams of heaven , hell and meeting Jesus at judgement day -
Here is a  biblical video response to his false and heretical dream "out of  body experience"-


"In recent years, Christian booksellers have inundated the evangelical world with testimonies from people who say they visited heaven in near-death experiences. Their stories are full of specific details about what heaven is like, who is there, and what is happening in the celestial realm. But when we compare their claims with Scripture, it becomes clear that they are merely figments of the human imagination, not true visions of heaven as it is described in God’s Word.

 The best known of all these tales, Heaven Is for Real,1 was a major motion picture, released in April 2014. It is the story of Colton Burpo, whose parents believe he visited heaven when he was just four—during surgery after a burst appendix nearly took his life. Colton’s descriptions of heaven are full of fanciful features and peculiar details that bear all the earmarks of a child’s vivid imagination. There’s nothing transcendent or even particularly enlightening about Colton’s heaven. It is completely devoid of the breathtaking glory featured in every biblical description of the heavenly realm.

 Stories like Colton’s are as dangerous as they are seductive. Readers not only get a twisted, unbiblical picture of heaven; they also imbibe a subjective, superstitious, shallow brand of spirituality. Studying mystical accounts of supposed journeys into the afterlife yields nothing but confusion, contradiction, false hope, bad doctrine, and a host of similar evils.


 We live in a narcissistic culture, and it shows in these accounts of people who claim they’ve been to heaven. They sound as if they viewed paradise in a mirror, keeping themselves in the foreground. They say comparatively little about God or His glory. But the glory of God is what the Bible says fills, illuminates, and defines heaven. Instead, the authors of these stories seem obsessed with details like how good they felt—how peaceful, how happy, how comforted they were; how they received privileges and accolades; how fun and enlightening their experience was; and how many things they think they now understand perfectly that could never be gleaned from Scripture alone. In short, they glorify self while barely noticing God’s glory. They highlight everything but what’s truly important about heaven.


It is quite true that heaven is a place of perfect bliss—devoid of all sorrow and sin, full of exultation and enjoyment—a place where grace and peace reign totally unchallenged. Heaven is where every true treasure and every eternal reward is laid up for the redeemed. Anyone whose destiny is heaven will certainly experience more joy and honor there than the fallen mind is capable of comprehending—infinitely more than any fallen creature deserves. But if you actually saw heaven and lived to tell about it, those things are not what would capture your heart and imagination.
You would be preoccupied instead with the majesty and grace of the One whose glory fills the place.
Sadly, undiscerning readers abound, and they take these postmodern accounts of heaven altogether seriously. The stratospheric sales figures and far-reaching influence of these books ought to be a matter of serious concern for anyone who truly loves the Word of God.


The Bible on Near-Death Experiences

There is simply no reason to believe anyone who claims to have gone to heaven and returned. John 3:13 says, “No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man.” And John 1:18 says, “No one has seen God at any time.
Four biblical authors had visions of heaven—not near-death experiences. Isaiah and Ezekiel (Old Testament prophets) and Paul and John (New Testament apostles) all had such visions. Two other biblical figures—Micaiah and Stephen—got glimpses of heaven, but what they saw is merely mentioned, not described (2 Chronicles 18:18; Acts 7:55).
Only three of these men later wrote about what they saw—and the details they gave were comparatively sparse (Isaiah 6:1–4; Ezekiel 1, 10; Revelation 4–6). All of them focused properly on God’s glory. They also mentioned their own fear and shame in the presence of such glory. They had nothing to say about the mundane features that are so prominent in modern tales about heaven (things like picnics, games, juvenile attractions, familiar faces, odd conversations, and so on). Paul gave no actual description of heaven but simply said what he saw would be unlawful to utter. In short, the biblical descriptions of heaven could hardly be any more different from today’s fanciful stories about heaven.
Lazarus of Bethany fell ill and died, and his body lay decaying in a tomb for four days until Jesus raised him (John 11:17). A whole chapter in John’s Gospel is devoted to the story of how Jesus brought him back from the dead. But there’s not a hint or a whisper anywhere in Scripture about what happened to Lazarus’s soul in that four-day interim. The same thing is true of every person in Scripture who was ever brought back from the dead, beginning with the widow’s son whom Elijah raised in 1 Kings 17:17–24 and culminating with Eutychus, who was healed by Paul in Acts 20:9–12. Not one biblical person ever gave any recorded account of his or her postmortem experience in the realm of departed souls.


Crossing the Boundaries

Far too much of the present interest in heaven, angels, and the afterlife stems from carnal curiosity. It is not a trend biblical Christians should encourage or celebrate. Any pursuit that diminishes people’s reliance on the Bible is fraught with grave spiritual dangers—especially if it is something that leads gullible souls into superstition, gnosticism, occultism, New Age philosophies, or any kind of spiritual confusion. Those are undeniably the roads most traveled by people who feed a morbid craving for detailed information about the afterlife, devouring stories of people who claim to have gone to the realm of the dead and returned.
Scripture never indulges that desire. In the Old Testament era, every attempt to communicate with the dead was deemed a sin on par with sacrificing infants to false gods (Deuteronomy 18:10–12). The Hebrew Scriptures say comparatively little about the disposition of souls after death, and the people of God were strictly forbidden to inquire further on their own. Necromancy was a major feature of Egyptian religion. It also dominated every religion known among the Canaanites. But under Moses’s law it was a sin punishable by death (Leviticus 20:27).
The New Testament adds much to our understanding of heaven (and hell), but we are still not permitted to add our own subjective ideas and experience-based conclusions to what God has specifically revealed through His inerrant Word. Indeed, we are forbidden in all spiritual matters to go beyond what is written (1 Corinthians 4:6).
Those who demand to know more than Scripture tells us about heaven are sinning: “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever” (Deuteronomy 29:29). The limits of our curiosity are thus established by the boundary of biblical revelation. In the words of Charles Spurgeon,
It’s a little heaven below, to imagine sweet things. But never think that imagination can picture heaven. When it is most sublime, when it is freest from the dust of earth, when it is carried up by the greatest knowledge, and kept steady by the most extreme caution, imagination cannot picture heaven. “It hath not entered the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” Imagination is good, but not to picture to us heaven. Your imaginary heaven you will find by-and-by to be all a mistake; though you may have piled up fine castles, you will find them to be castles in the air, and they will vanish like thin clouds before the gale. For imagination cannot make a heaven. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered the heart of man to conceive” it.2
What God has revealed in Scripture is the only legitimate place to get a clear understanding of the heavenly kingdom. God’s written Word does in fact give us a remarkably full and clear picture of heaven and the spiritual realm. But the Bible still leaves many questions unanswered.
We need to accept the boundaries God Himself has put on what He has revealed. It is sheer folly to speculate where Scripture is silent. It is sinfully wrong to try to investigate spiritual mysteries using occult means. And it is seriously dangerous to listen to anyone who claims to know more about God, heaven, angels, or the afterlife than God Himself has revealed to us in Scripture.

The Glories of Heaven

It is, however, right and beneficial for Christians to fix their hearts on heaven. Scripture commands us to cultivate that perspective: “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on earth” (Colossians 3:1–2). “While we do not look at the things which are seen but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18). “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).
Such a perspective is the very essence of true faith, according to Hebrews 11. Those with authentic, biblical faith acknowledge that they are strangers and pilgrims on this earth (v. 13). They are seeking a heavenly homeland (v. 14). They “desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them” (v. 16). The “city” that verse refers to is the heavenly Jerusalem, an unimaginable place—the very capital of heaven. It will be the eternal abode of the redeemed. No wonder Christians are intrigued with the subject.
But no matter how much they might obsess over what heaven is like, people who fill their heads with a lot of fantastic or delusional ideas from others’ near-death experiences have not truly set their minds on things above. If the inerrant biblical truth God has given us is the only reliable knowledge about heaven we have access to (and it is), then that is what should grip our hearts and minds, not the dreams and speculations of human minds"(gty.org)

Conclusion
"Prophet" Rod is a false prophet and teacher and is to be avoided- Romans 16:17-18

False teacher Todd White attacked the deity of Christ by lying that Jesus was born as just a man and not fully God and fully man while on earth- Colossians 2:9. More on false teacher Todd white - " White tells us he was an atheist for 34 years and a former addict for 22 years who became a believer in Christ over 12 years ago, (2004); God opened Todd’s eyes to the truth and that Holy Spirit wants to flow through every believer everywhere we go, at work, school, grocery stores, malls, gas stations, everywhere. Todd has Dreadlocks which may have an appeal to a certain segment of the youth, to others it has the opposite affect (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreadlocks His ministry is called Lifestyle Christianity (which is apparently a reaction to a Sunday Christianity.) He has gained notoriety through Darren Wilson's videos (Finger of God). He has various videos of his testimony, teachings and practices are on youtube. What I like is that he is prompting people to get involved. What I don’t like are the general promises given to what will take place which is from bad interpretations. But this is not about my view but the Bibles. You must back up your practice and activity with doctrine that is correctly interpreted, not by touting experiences. One’s personality, likeable or unlikeable is always subject to their teachings. The main statement on his homepage: “Our mission statement of the gospel is to become love so that wherever we go, people want what we have!” First thing I noticed: he has NO statement of faith. That’s ALWAYS a concern. But one can basically hear AND see what he believes by what he teaches on the videos and it is not all good. As far as becoming love, no one looked at Jesus wanting what He had? Jesus said “By this all shall know that you are My disciples, if you have love toward one another” (John 13:35). In other words how we treat each other shows who we follow and that we are one. It is NOT to make them want what we have. What a true Christian has is within, Christ. And to have Christ Jesus one must admit their sinfulness and receive him, believe in what He did for them, his crucifixion and resurrection as the solution. It appears Todd’s sincerity and zeal is genuine, however this cannot be more important than ones doctrine. Our practice comes from the teaching we hold. It did not take me long watching his videos to see certain common denominators. This man does not seem to have a grounding in certain Scriptures and from what I have seen is being co-opted by false teachers. You can’t have God as your focus without knowing the TRUTH found in your Bible. It's about what God has said, not what you experience. Since White associates with experiential Latter Rain Charismatics, he is learning from them. So its just like going to school. Love without being coupled with the truth is not true love exhibited or expressed. No one was saved by love! You can’t win someone to Christ without telling them the truth about their condition and the solution- the gospel. So its half a message, for it is Jesus crucified that saves. That is God's love in action. Half the things he says are right, and we can say amen too; but the other half… He says that he doesn't just read the Bible - he lives it! So let’s look at some of the main statements he is teaching others on this. In one video, “Lifestyle Christianity,” Todd tells the people: “I didn’t go to bible school, didn’t go to Bible college I just went to the Bible.” (This will be refuted as we see what he teaches he has learned from others) He says he lives his life by the Scripture: “you will hear so much scripture come out of my mouth. My life is laced with so much Scripture because I live it… my days are saturate in my growing in whom God says I am.” I don't read the Bible so I can teach you-never read your Bible so you can teach people!" (and if you’re a pastor or teacher what do you do?) You read the Word-you get in there and you say 'God, this is who you say I am, I need to become what this book says!" (Jesus we can do nothing without him, he didn't just gives us power to go on our own ) "God places this inside of me, so that I can become a living epistle, known and read by men." I think it’s more important to have a correct interpretation of Scripture, than bad applications which have you arrive at the wrong conclusions. Todd is taking 2 Corinthians 3:2 severing it from its context for the intention of esteeming the people to have power to do God’s work. 2 Cor. 3:1-3 “Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others, epistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you? You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.” A living epistle" to Todd means that we are to "become Scripture," for people to see Jesus. Paul is not at all telling people to "become the Bible." Paul was saying that the believers in Corinth were all like letters of recommendation because of their spiritual maturity. He is referring to their spiritual growth that God had done by his ministry through the Spirit. (The early church wrote letters of that recommended a member who was traveling that would validate the maturity of them as a teacher 1 Cor.16:3) Scripture is God’s Holy Word, not us. Heb. 4:12 “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” After this Todd says, “God did NOT tell you to memorize scripture, He told you to become it!" First of all, God did tell us to memorize scripture by example, “thy word I have hidden in my heart,” said the King of Israel (David). Jesus, the Son of David cited the correct Scripture against the devil in his temptation in the wilderness, how by memory. Since we are to exhort in sound doctrine and refute those who contradict (Titus 1:9), this too involves knowing scripture, the right scripture in its correct interpretation. In fact when the Jewish Scribes copied the word they memorized it. The average Jew in Israel memorized large portions of the Old Testament. Maybe Todd looked and did not find the word memorize in Scripture but the words remember and keep are, and the intent is all through it. Here a few examples. Deut. 29:9 "Therefore keep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.” You can’t keep what you do not commit to memory. Num. 15:40 "and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God. Acts 20:35 "… And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" Or the national anthem of Israel called the Sh’ma to listen and do. Deut 6:4-9"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!" You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes."You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Thus they were surrounded by the word to keep it John 14:23-24 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and he goes on in v.24"He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.” “But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.” I Jn. 2:5. “Keep” - Gr: tereo-to attend to carefully, to take care of a) to guard b) metaphorically, to keep, one in the state in which he is c) to observe d) to reserve: to undergo something.” To keep it does not mean we carry a Bible in our pocket and take it out when necessary. It means that it is memorized it becomes the way we live. There are just too many examples, like Jude, “But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 17). So this claim to not memorize is wrong and to say you become Scripture is also wrong. This was something taught in the older Vineyard conferences under John Wimber and the prophets. “YOU become that Word,’ was part of the new Breed Latter rain teaching. Since one of his teachers he is associated with, Bill Johnson, is repeating the errors of the Vineyard, I presume he heard it from him, because it is not found in the Bible. 1 Chron. 10:13 Saul died for his unfaithfulness – “for he did not keep the word of the LORD, and also because he consulted a medium for guidance.” Where it all began for Todd White Within the first year and a half of his Christian walk he was directed by Jason Westerfeild to go to a conference with Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. He says it was called “Healing fusion,” but he first instead said it was “The Voice of Healing,” oops … that is what Gordon Lindsay's magazine was called. The Voice of Healing was about William Branham’s ministry, of whom Bill Johnson of Bethel church recommends. This slip up tells me a lot of what he is learning. So in this meeting Todd is in he describes himself as feeling very uncomfortable, sweating. Clark then points him out, as he is profusely antagonized with what most would consider palpitations and thinking he is having a heart attack and Clark says “you have been asking the lord for a baptism of fire haven’t you? And “boom” (his words) the Holy Spirit hits me and drops me between the seats and I’m screaming and think I’m gonna die…”its like I’m being electrocuted, it’s the scariest thing” “I’m sitting there shaking and Trembling.” Randy Clark says, “you won’t die - more Lord” (The fire of God will Cost you, its worth it -video). Todd thinks God answered the cry of his heart. And He wants other to have the same experience he had, that’s dangerous. Overwhelmed with bodily sensations of utter discomfort, feeling like they are physically dying is not of God. It does not matter if it is in Jesus' name. Now at this time I want to point out that what happened to Todd White is the same thing that happened to Todd Bentley at the 'Healing Explosion' conference with Bill Johnson. Todd Bentley: “I’m sitting there trying to listen to the speaker and all of a sudden I’m aware of like an electrical presence, an electrical, it was like electricity and it was like 2-3 feet in front of me” right in front of my chair, it was like a whirlwind actually, it was swirling, … So I put my hand out and heres what happened RRRRRR (I didn’t hear that noise that’s for you) “it was like putting my hand into an electrical force field.” And the same experience happened from the originator of this anointing, Rodney Browne from whom Randy Clark received it from. Browne said The anointing of God as wonderful as it is, is electricity and describes it “I was plugged into heaven's electric light supply and since then my desire has been to go and plug other people in.” “My whole body was on fire from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.” “The fire of God was coursing through my whole being and it didn't quit ....Because of that encounter with the Lord, my life was radically changed from that day on” (Rodney Howard Browne, The Touch of God, pp. 73-74.) Where in the Bible does the baptism of the Spirit (which they say is the baptism of the fire) do this? And they are still plugging people into this false anointing. This is the common experience from Kundalini “fire” power. The Bible says the anointing is a person, the Holy Spirit, who is God. And he is like Jesus, do you see any of this in Jesus’ ministry? Once again we have someone who insists he is not going to Bible school or college but going to all these meetings of Latter Rain adherents. Should we not expect that his spiritual openness was answered, he had no armor on. We find the same false spirits targeting them by spiritual experiences in these meetings, thus the same errors are repeated. Randy Clark had been to the Rodney Howard-Browne’s laughter meetings (1993) in Tulsa, Okla., at Kenneth Hagin, Jr.'s Rhema Bible Church (this is significant, as we see the same characters and concepts continually involved.) John Arnott invited Clark to come to Toronto Airport Church, (Jan. 20 1994) and that is when the Toronto blessing began (www.letusreason.org/Pent30.htm) Clark describes this fire they experienced being brought to Holy Trinity of Brompton. They were laughing so hard. One guy had his eyes on the floor for about two hours and could not walk (Randy Clark, Evidence Of This Present Move, Toronto Airport Vineyard, October 15, 1994). Clark “I don't want you to quench the Holy Spirit, I don't want you to stop laughing, just please dial the decibels down a little bit." (Randy Clark, Let The Fire Fall Conference, Anaheim Vineyard, July 1994) CBN writes “He has been blessed to receive impartation from Randy Clark, Bill Johnson, Roland and Heidi Baker and Benny Hinn. What a strange brew this is. pt.2 A little Latter Rain or a lot?"(http://www.letusreason.org/Popteach85.htm)

The Shack is a false Christian book & movie.
"1. God the Father was crucified with Jesus (p96).
Because God's eyes are pure and cannot look upon sin, the Bible says that God would not look upon His own beloved Son as He hung on the Cross, carrying our sins (Habakkuk 1:13; Matthew 27:45). 2. God is limited by His love and cannot practice justice (p102).
The Bible declares that God's love and His justice are two sides of the same coin — equally a part of the personality and the character of God (Isaiah 61:8; Hosea 2:19). 3. On the Cross, God forgave all of humanity, whether they repent or not. Some choose a relationship with Him, but He forgives them all regardless (p225).
Jesus explained that only those who come to Him will be saved (John 14:6). 4. Hierarchical structures, whether they are in the Church or in the government, are evil (122).
Our God is a God of order (Job 25:2). 5. God will never judge people for their sins (p120).
The Word of God repeatedly invites people to escape from the judgment of God by believing in Jesus Christ, His Son (Romans 2:16; 2 Timothy 4:1-3). 6. There is not a hierarchical structure in the Godhead, just a circle of unity (p122).
The Bible says that Jesus submitted to the will of the Father. This doesn't mean that one Person is higher or better than the other; just unique. Jesus said, "I came to do the will of Him who sent me. I am here to obey my Father." Jesus also said, "I will send you the Holy Spirit" (John 4:34, 6:44, 14:26, 15:26). 7. God submits to human wishes and choices (p145).
Far from God submitting to us, Jesus said, "Narrow is the way that leads to eternal life." We are to submit to Him in all things, for His glory and because of what He has accomplished for us (Matthew 7:13-15). 8. Justice will never take place because of love (p164).
The Bible teaches that when God's love is rejected, and when the offer of salvation and forgiveness is rejected, justice must take place or God has sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross for nothing (Matthew 12:20; Romans 3:25-26). 9. There is no such a thing as eternal judgment or torment in hell (p248).
Jesus' own description of hell -Luke 16:23"

Matthew 7:21 - “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.


This post is a response to Christian Rapper -Bizzle supporting false teacher T.D Jakes and also implying that the truth of God being triune (the trinity ) is not essential teaching - i.e you can still be a Christian and deny that God is triune. This is simply not true. Your faith is only as good as who you put it in- John 8:24. If you say you believe in Jesus but a Jesus who is not part of the trinity you do not believe in the true Jesus of the Bible.  For more on the essential beliefs of a Christian(beliefs a true Christian cannot deny) please read here - https://carm.org/essential-doctrines-of-Christianity



Bizzle implying that believing God is triune is not essential doctrine was brought to light by the Christian Polemics website - Pulpitandpen.org which reads -

The “Christian” rap artist, Bizzle, who is known for using expletives and racial slurs in his music has come out in defense of false teacher T.D. Jakes’ Modalist views, stating that “he changed on that a long time ago.” On his Facebook page, he posted an article by Jonathan McReynolds entitled From T.D. Jakes to Lecrae–a response to an anti-church article put out by BET. In the dialog beneath the post Bizzle made the following comments:
“Trinity is not a biblical term. So if one believes in the existence of all 3, does he have to believe that they are equal or that they are all God for salvation? The Bible says believe that JESUS is the SON OF GOD and that HE died for our sins. So I cannot tell someone who believes JESUS died for their sins and walks according to scripture, that he is not saved,” he stated.
The argument that the word “Trinity” is not a biblical term has been the go-to sonnet of Trinity-denying heretics for ages. The word may not be in the bible, but the concept is most certainly there, and the nature of God and who He is in all of His persons is essential to knowing Him and having a relationship with Him. Using Bizzle’s logic, nearly any cult member who professes the name Jesus could be saved. Further, to deny that any person of the Godhead is God is to deny the deity of God completely. But what it boils down to is this: do you know the real Jesus, or a false Jesus?
“Unfortunately the same people who made it their job to ‘expose him’ on that did not try as hard to spread the news,” he continues, “also, believing in the Trinity to be saved isn’t biblical either.” Of course, this is opposed to the historical orthodox teachings of the church. To deny the Trinity usually means one of two things: either Jesus is consigned to a subordinate position that denies or devalues His deity, or some form of unorthodox polytheistic view of the Godhead is embraced.
While the Scriptures don’t reveal all that there is to know about the Godhead, there are certain doctrines that the Scriptures do clearly teach and to deny these biblical teachings is to deny the essence of who God is. Essentially, the Scriptures teach that there is only one God and that the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. The Scriptures also clearly teach that the Father is not the Son or the Holy Spirit, the Son is not the Father or the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is not the Father or the Son. (For more on the Doctrine of the Trinity, see here)
See the screenshots below of Bizzle’s comments below









Notice, Bizzle provides no scripture in context to justify why he implies believing God is triune is not essential doctrine and he provides no scripture in context to support his defense of false teacher - T.D Jakes.


T.D Jakes is a false teacher who preaches a false gospel known as the "health, wealth, and prosperity gospel". God condemns false gospels as seen in Galatians 1:6-9 . T.D Jakes preaches godliness as a means to financial gain and God clearly condemns this as seen in 1 Timothy 6:5-11.
For more on the "prosperity" gospel please read this - https://www.gotquestions.org/prosperity-gospel.html

T.D Jakes also denies the trinity and ordains women as pastors in direct violation of scripture like 1 Timothy 3 . For more on T.D Jakes read here - https://carm.org/td-jakes

Oneness/Apostolic teaching is not Christian -  https://carm.org/oneness-Pentecostal

Romans 16:17-18 is clear yet Bizzle defends and shares stuff from T.D Jakes online even though Jakes preaches a false gospel that leads people to hell apart from God.


Here are screenshots of Bizzle defending T.D Jakes and endorsing his quotes even though T.D Jakes is a wolf in sheep's clothing
