Airbrushed Amanda Wells – A huckster like no other?

Your best life with Amanda Wells…

“The Lord had spoken to me to start to train people…”

“Still not convinced???”

“You should consider this an investment, and a wise investment at that!”

These are the words from our beloved impastor Amanda Wells from our previous article.

Introducing Airbrushed Amanda Wells

As you can see, Amanda is queen of all things gimmicky. She is a woman who thinks she hears from God but seems unable to form a coherent thought. Oddly enough, we have seen this similar erratic behaviour broadcast from behind the C3 “church” pulpit from Phil and Chris Pringle.

Chris Rosebrough pointed out the erratic, non-coherent mind of Phil Pringle when he reviewed Phil Pringle’s 2010 sermon. Cindy Stokes offered this observation when she critiqued Chris Pringle at Presence Conference 2012 (this was the sermon where Chris bought a tree on stage and started talking to it):

“The title of Chris Pringle’s message is “The Scent of Water”. Before you write off that title as ridiculous, in all fairness, that phrase does appear in Job 14, but she fails to present a message that really has anything to do with water or anything that water represents. Instead, she centers the message around the idea of seeds and trees. Sometimes the seed is a dream, sometimes it’s a person. Sometimes the tree is your dream, sometimes it’s you and sometimes it’s the church. Sometimes you’re supposed to bury your seed and let it die. Sometimes you’re supposed to be the seed and reach up to the “scent of water”. Sometimes you’re supposed to shut it in a woodshed and forget about it. (You think I’m kidding, don’t you. Just wait and see for yourself.) As erratic as her imagery may be, her speaking style is more so. I lost count of the times she interrupted herself. Chris Pringle is a world class bunny trailer.[Source]

In our first article on Airbrush Amanda, we stated,

“With this kind of culture in the C3 and Hillsong movements, an Amanda Wells type of person is bound to arise and embody the nature of these cultures.”

This article will explore this statement further and look at some of the products Amanda presents. To play it safe we made a serious claim that Amanda Wells, “lies and blasphemes God to further her own selfish ambitions”. It’s only appropriate that we back this claim up.

You Can BUY the Anointing 

When researching Amanda, we couldn’t help notice this rather hilarious page:

What does this sound like? Don’t you think this sounds like the gimmicks you would see at Phil Pringle’s C3 services and Presence Conferences?

Remember we were told that you can buy the anointing of Phil Pringle to hang on your walls at home or at your work.

You Too Can BUY Phil Pringle’s ‘Godly’ Anointing!

Phil Pringle the “scam” artist?

Let’s look at some of Amanda Well’s “anointed and life-changing CD’s, DVD’s”.

REFUTING AMANDA’s SIMONESS OFFICE

Before tackling her merchandise, we would like to arm you with these scriptures first. Don’t you think Amanda Wells fits the role of a false prophet rather well?

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 2 Peter 2:1-3

How can you discern if Amanda Well is true or not? Consider this bold statement by the Apostle Paul when he was dealing with false prophets and teachers in Corinth. Does she contradict or undermine the writings of Paul?

If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord. If anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. 1 Corinthians 14:36-38

How do you think Jesus and his Apostles dealt with false prophets making merchandise of people?

[…] Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’c ? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’” Mark 11:15-17

But there was a man named Simon, who had previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, saying that he himself was somebody great

Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, saying, “Give me this power also, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity.” Acts 8:9,18-23

AMANDA’S ANOINTED MERCHANDISE

In her DVD The 9TH Hour SEASON, Ms. Wells advertises how you can die like Jesus just so you can move boldly in your 9th hour! Have you stepped into your 9th hour of atonement season yet? If not, buy your own nails, crucifix, hammer, curtain and this quality set of CD’s and DVD’s from Amanda Wells.

The 9TH Hour SEASON

1 CD and 2 DVD’s
In Matthew 27, it says Jesus hung on the Cross and in the 6th hour, the world was plunged into darkness. Then in the 9th hour, the veil in the Temple was rent and the graves were open.

Today as the world is enveloped by an economic and environmental crisis and many have felt their dreams have sunk into the depths of the grave. The Church has entered a new season, the 9th hour!

In this teaching taken from Acts 3, you will see how important it is to understand the dynamics of the 9th hour and how to move into it.

You will see were it is a season of:
* Suddenlies
* Miracles
* New partnerships and renewed sponsorships, and much, much more! If you don’t understand the dynamics of this new season you could be arrested in one season for too long and miss the fullness of this new season.

Don’t let this season pass you by!

If you are a Christian and have not received the saving revelation of God’s grace, Ms. Wells is here to save the day! Who cares that “God does not show favoritism”! (Acts 10:34.) Who cares if Christians “receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ”! (Romans 5:17.)

In this DVD, Amanda will teach you how to “process” God’s favour and how it can be “activated in your life”. Ms. Wells knows how to work for her grace and now she wants to help you too!

So be astonished! Be sure to quickly desert God “who called you in the grace of Christ” and turn to Mandy’s different good news— “not that there is another one” (Galatians 1:6-7).

The only thing we can think people can get when they buy and listen to Ms. Well’s products is a spiritual frontal lobotomy. Why do it?

Jesus said that false teachers like Amanda Wells and Phil Pringle are thieves and that, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Jesus has come to give us HIS life. And the abundant life he has given us is His eternal life. Yet for some reason, these frauds have the audacity to think they can replace or even improve Christ’s offer.

In all seriousness, what can these false teachers offer Christians that Christ and His Word can’t? The answer: themselves. And what is tragic is that these false teachers (just like Simon “The Great”), operate out of insecurity “gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity”.

It is time the church used the words of Peter against these false teachers saying, “Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you”.

  1. I am surprised that this woman’s claim as shown in your posting of her advertising has not evoked an incredible uproar from every Christian who comes across your site! She claims that “SHE CAN MAKE THE CALL MORE POSSIBLE, CREDIBLE, FUN AND INSPIRATIONAL!!!!!!

    SHE can improve on God’s work????

    This is nothing short of heresy and anyone who comes across her path should be quick to point it out to her. Of course, like all these wolves who are prosperity preachers, I doubt she would ever be open to
    correction as they are more interested in preaching wealth than preaching the saving Grace of the Cross.

    But to claim that you can improve on God’s work? Really!!!! How many people subscribe to this kind of drivel?
