The Duty of Discernment by Justin Peters
Biblical discernment is one of the most important disciplines in a believer's life and yet is sorely lacking in the professing church today. The Apostle Paul warned his readers not to be like "children tossed to and fro, carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men (Eph. 4:14)." In this presentation, Justin Peters provides the definition of, precedence for, and importance of biblical discernment. The dangers of not practicing biblical discernment cannot be overstated, but neither can be the rewards when we do. The Duty of Discernment will help equip you to be a good Berean and "search the scriptures" (Acts 17:11) to see whether or not what you are hearing plumbs with God's Word.
The Word-Faith Movement Exposed by Justin Peters
The Word-Faith movement, more commonly known as the Health and Wealth Gospel, is the face not only of much of American "Christianity," but also that of the world. American Prosperity preachers such as Benny Hinn, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, and Joel Osteen present a false gospel that promises people financial prosperity and guaranteed divine physical healing provided that they have enough faith and give enough money to their respective ministries. This movement, rooted in the metaphysical cults, not only promises health and wealth, but also distorts many of the fundamental tenets of historical Christianity. In this session, Justin Peters outlines some of the major heresies of the so-called "Prosperity Gospel" as he brings to bear the burden of Scripture upon the claims and teachings of some of today's most popular wolves in sheep's clothing.
