Thou Shalt Not Worship Thy Pastor!

Why is Elevation Church the Best Place to Work? While the title of this post isn't really one of the Decalogue, directly, it is an accurate statement. Now, see if you can spot what's wrong with this document from Elevation Church. ***Pay close attention to 1, 3, 7 and 16.*** It's more than disturbing that the employees at Elevation don't serve Jesus Christ but instead they serve Steven Furtick.

New Age Movement Crap

Although this is an old video, and we here at One Over 99 do not agree doctrinally with Mr. Hunt, this is worth showing here, because it exposes the New Age Movement that is plaguing us today. Remember, the New Age Movement is similar to another movement called the bowel movement, because it's all a bunch of crap. Enjoy!


Did this bro actually say ho?! Is he a pimp or a pastor?

Pimp Perry 'unapologetically' purges the church by bullying the followers to help tote his heavy load. I'd like to know where Jesus told His followers they had to tote a load in order to follow His teaching or be members of His flock? This is madness in so many ways!


Yes, the Church Wants Your Money, 'Cause it Ain't Yours Big Boy!! from FBCJax Watchdog on Vimeo.


Sadly, this point of view is correct in today's seeker friendly churches. 

Seeker driven chronology: 
  • Pagans use their wonderful gifts of songwriting to glorify everything but Christ. 
  • Christians use pagan things to entertain in order to draw a crowd and to proclaim the gospel. 
  • Christians evangelists trust more in the power of entertainment than the power of God in the Gospel. 
  • The entertainment becomes the new Gospel and the message conforms to the image of entertainment. - Kevin Willson

Sowing Seeds of Lies
 "Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have" (Hebrews 13:5).

This was written by Phil Johnson of Team Pyro as requested by Jovan Mackenzy, for his album, FAMINE

In 1 Timothy 6:6-11, the apostle Paul writes:
Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
    But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.

Paul's own testimony gives us a vivid picture of true faithfulness and blessedness: "I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need" (Philippians 4:11-12).

Clearly, contentment is a great virtue, especially in times of suffering and poverty. In fact, this is the consistent teaching of Scripture from beginning to end: God's blessing is not measurable by a person's material prosperity. True biblical prosperity is about spiritual health, joy in the Lord, rewards in heaven, and grace in the midst of earthly sufferings. True prosperity has nothing whatsoever to do with material wealth or an abundance of worldly riches. In fact, those things are often hindrances to spiritual blessings.

The wicked often prosper materially, while truly godly people suffer. "Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted" (2 Timothy 3:12-13). Christ himself suffered, "leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps" (1 Peter 2:21).

All of that flatly contradicts the message of the Prosperity Gospel—the so-called "Word of Faith" movement. Word-of-Faith teachers insist that worldly wealth, physical health, and material prosperity are the ultimate gauge of how blessed you are by God.

Furthermore, they say, you yourself are the one who ultimately determines how much or how little of God's blessings you enjoy. You can manipulate God with your words. You have it within the power of your own heart to summon enough faith to claim whatever blessing you want. And if you are not materially prosperous; if you are sick; if you suffer in any way, you are the one to blame because you didn't have enough "faith" in your own ability to create a new reality by making a positive confession. You didn't claim your own dream by faith.

That is a lie from the pit of hell. In John MacArthur's words, the prosperity gospel "is no different from the lowest human religions—a form of voodoo where God can be coerced, cajoled, manipulated, controlled, and exploited for the Christian's own ends." It is rooted in greed. It glorifies the sinner at the expense of Christ. It fosters unbelief and spiritual defeat rather than genuine trust in God and triumph in Christ. It makes faith into a formula for manipulating God, rather than a humble, repentant trust in him.

In fact, Word-of-Faith doctrine flatly contradicts everything Scripture says about faith and the promises of God; about suffering and prosperity; about contentment and covetousness; about the work of Christ and the depravity of fallen humanity. It is the religion of mammon-worship; it is not the way of the cross. In short, it is a false gospel—meaning it is no gospel at all. It is a damning and damnable lie, and those who follow such a false and materialistic religion are on the broad road that leads to destruction.

Prosperity Preaching: Deceitful and Deadly
by John Piper
When I read about prosperity-preaching churches, my response is: "If I were not on the inside of Christianity, I wouldn't want in." In other words, if this is the message of Jesus, no thank you.

Luring people to Christ to get rich is both deceitful and deadly. It's deceitful because when Jesus himself called us, he said things like: "Any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple" (Luke 14:33). And it's deadly because the desire to be rich plunges "people into ruin and destruction" (1 Timothy 6:9). So here is my plea to preachers of the gospel.

1. Don't develop a philosophy of ministry that makes it harder for people to get into heaven.

Jesus said, "How difficult it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!" His disciples were astonished, as many in the "prosperity" movement should be. So Jesus went on to raise their astonishment even higher by saying, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God." They respond in disbelief: "Then who can be saved?" Jesus says, "With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God" (Mark 10:23-27).

My question for prosperity preachers is: Why would you want to develop a ministry focus that makes it harder for people to enter heaven?

2. Do not develop a philosophy of ministry that kindles suicidal desires in people.

Paul said, "There is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content." But then he warned against the desire to be rich. And by implication, he warned against preachers who stir up the desire to be rich instead of helping people get rid of it. He warned, "Those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs" (1 Timothy 6:6-10).

So my question for prosperity preachers is: Why would you want to develop a ministry that encourages people to pierce themselves with many pangs and plunge themselves into ruin and destruction?

3. Do not develop a philosophy of ministry that encourages vulnerability to moth and rust.

Jesus warns against the effort to lay up treasures on earth. That is, he tells us to be givers, not keepers. "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal" (Matthew 6:19).

Yes, we all keep something. But given the built-in tendency toward greed in all of us, why would we take the focus off Jesus and turn it upside down?

4. Don't develop a philosophy of ministry that makes hard work a means of amassing wealth.

Paul said we should not steal. The alternative was hard work with our own hands. But the main purpose was not merely to hoard or even to have. The purpose was "to have to give." "Let him labor, working with his hands, that he may have to give to him who is in need" (Ephesians 4:28). This is not a justification for being rich in order to give more. It is a call to make more and keep less so you can give more. There is no reason why a person who makes $200,000 should live any differently from the way a person who makes $80,000 lives. Find a wartime lifestyle; cap your expenditures; then give the rest away.

Why would you want to encourage people to think that they should possess wealth in order to be a lavish giver? Why not encourage them to keep their lives more simple and be an even more lavish giver? Would that not add to their generosity a strong testimony that Christ, and not possessions, is their treasure?

5. Don't develop a philosophy of ministry that promotes less faith in the promises of God to be for us what money can't be.

The reason the writer to the Hebrews tells us to be content with what we have is that the opposite implies less faith in the promises of God. He says, "Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.' So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?'" (Hebrews 13:5-6).

If the Bible tells us that being content with what we have honors the promise of God never to forsake us, why would we want to teach people to want to be rich?

6. Don't develop a philosophy of ministry that contributes to your people being choked to death.

Jesus warns that the word of God, which is meant to give us life, can be choked off from any effectiveness by riches. He says it is like a seed that grows up among thorns that choke it to death: "They are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the . . . riches . . . of life, and their fruit does not mature" (Luke 8:14).

Why would we want to encourage people to pursue the very thing that Jesus warns will choke us to death?

7. Don't develop a philosophy of ministry that takes the seasoning out of the salt and puts the light under a basket.

What is it about Christians that makes them the salt of the earth and the light of the world? It is not wealth. The desire for wealth and the pursuit of wealth tastes and looks just like the world. It does not offer the world anything different from what it already believes in. The great tragedy of prosperity-preaching is that a person does not have to be spiritually awakened in order to embrace it; one needs only to be greedy. Getting rich in the name of Jesus is not the salt of the earth or the light of the world. In this, the world simply sees a reflection of itself. And if it works, they will buy it.

The context of Jesus' saying shows us what the salt and light are. They are the joyful willingness to suffering for Christ. Here is what Jesus said, "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. You are the salt of the earth. . . . You are the light of the world" (Matthew 5:11-14).

What will make the world taste (the salt) and see (the light) of Christ in us is not that we love wealth the same way they do. Rather, it will be the willingness and the ability of Christians to love others through suffering, all the while rejoicing because their reward is in heaven with Jesus. This is inexplicable on human terms. This is supernatural. But to attract people with promises of prosperity is simply natural. It is not the message of Jesus. It is not what he died to achieve.

One Over 99 Ministry has a wish list! Certainly, we have a prayer list, but this is something you can help with that allows you to team up with us in sharing the gospel of Christ Jesus to the world.

We have often said that being in the ministry is like going into the well full of the Living Waters of Christ Jesus and bringing it to those who who thirst for eternal life. So if we are "down in the well", then we need you to "hold the rope". You can do this, by purchasing the Bibles and tracts that we give out to the world through our continued evangelism efforts. Being full time ministry means there is no paycheck at the end of the week, so we could really use the help. We are putting a list of the items needed below, along with the links of where to purchase them. Our shipping address is a postal box, but we have received materials from others at this location, so there should be no problems in sending them there.

BTW - The event yesterday at Pinewood Mercy Ministry was awesome! God was glorified and the body of Christ was edified. We completely ran out of New Testament Bibles given to the homeless, and went through a ton of tracts. I even gave the bracelet from my own wrist and we are out completely. Praise God!

So needless to say, we are counting Christ and counting on you too. Thanks so much, and please Tweet this and post to your Facebook page. Soli Deo Gloria!
























My brother, Tony Miano shares the optical illusion with James and Suzi.


IF THIS IS LIKE YOUR CHURCH, RUN! GET OUT OF THERE NOW! You need biblical teaching and you need to be in a church where Christ is King. There is no 'show'. If you need to have a church that has entertainment before and or after the preaching, and that entertainment is longer than the sermon and prayer time, then you need the gospel. You need prayer. Email us here if you are looking for a real church.

Sun Stand Still - New Way To Pray

Steven Furtick. False teacher. Heretic

Please listen to this audio message from Chris Roseborough, Pirate Christian Radio, regarding the unbiblical teaching of Steven Furtick, Elevation Church, regarding prayer, Pelagianism, and the way he is misleading the masses of seekers.

Are Sun Stand Still Prayers Biblical?
Did Jesus teach His believers to pray Sun Stand Still Prayers?
Can Sun Stand Still Prayers be taught by correctly exegeting the scriptures or does the whole concept of a Sun Stand Still Prayer rely on twisting and allegorizing the Biblical text?

The answers to these questions and more are covered in Chris Rosebrough's critique of Sun Stand Still in the audio player posted HERE. Please take the time to open your Bible and follow along and pass this audio to your friends who might be being influenced by the false teaching of Steven Furtick.
