Phil Pringle of Christian City Church (C3 Church), Oxford Falls preached a sermon titled, ‘Prophecy’. Not only did Phil Pringle espouse pure Word of Faith heresy, he also preached the damnable Arian heresy.
Arianism, in Christianity, is a Christological concept that asserts that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was created by God The Father at a point of time, is distinct from the Father and is therefore subordinate to the Father. Arian teachings were first attributed o Arius (c.AD 250-336), a Christian presbyter in Alexandria, Egypt. The teachings of Arius and his supporters were opposed to the prevailing theological views held by proto-orthodox Christians, regarding the nature of the Trinity and the nature of Christ. The Arian concept of Christ is that the Son of God did not always exist but was created by God the Father.[Source]
It was Chris Rosebrough from Fighting for the Faith that exposed Phil Pringle’s heresies in this sermon. Before tuning in to hear the review (or reading the transcript below), we want you to consider the words of Phil Johnson from The Gracelife Pulpit:
“It’s important for Christians to have a grasp of heresies that the church has battled over the centuries, because they often return with new clothing, and the unprepared Christian is likely to fall into these old pits. Phil does an excellent job of looking at some of the major heresies that are revisiting the church today: Socinianism, Arianism, Pelagianism, Gnosticism, and Judaizing. This is an excellent 6 part series that will shore up some weak points in the church today.” [Source]

TRANSCRIPT – Sermon Review: ‘Prophecy’ – Phil Pringle: Vision casting leader, pioneer apostle, Phil Pringle presiding.
Chris Rosebrough: We’re going to hear a word of faith heresy sermon entitled “Prophecy”, this is from “Your Best Life Now” television program with Phil Pringle.
“In this quest for looking for something that could begin the year I thought like Chris and I were talking one morning and she was getting engrossed in the scriptures herself and even this morning read it out of the Message to me when we were getting ready
Chris: Read it out of the message? Yes the Message is a “herephrase”, yes “herephrase”yes heretical paraphrase. One of our new words here at Fighting for the Faith.
Pringle: In John 1 verse 1, it says in the beginning was the word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God, all things were made through him and without him nothing was made that was made.
So the first point that we need to understand here is that in the beginning of anything is a word. And not just a word but the Word.
Chris: Woah! Yes John 1:1 is about Jesus. It is not about the beginning of anything there’s a word. That is total straight up word of faith heresy. Yes John 1:1 is pointing us to Christ, not some principal about how our words create the beginnings of things…. in the beginning (Hebrew translation) in the beginning was the word, the word was with God The Word was God. He was in the beginning with God and all things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness does not overcome it. No this is not teaching some principal that your words create the beginning of things. He has totally taken a passage that points us to Jesus and twisted it into some kind of passage that supposedly teaches us that our words create the beginnings of something. No it does not!
Pringle: And that Word is not just a word – it’s actually a he. It says he was in the beginning with God. So the word is a person and every time you cast your eyes on scripture you’re looking at a person. And the person is Jesus himself. Now I don’t know about you but I find I’ve got to work to keep on keeping certain fires alive on the inside of my heart. You can get your fire put out by a wide range of things.
Chris: Yes and we just heard Kenneth Hagin talking about that, same doctrine, weird how much he has in common with Kenneth Hagin.
Pringle: And it’s important, very important whenever I come to church I think “oh Lord never never let us become a church holding services where people think that by attending a service that’s it, the fulfilment of their religious duties for like the week and whatever and that and we are just going through a liturgy and we are all dead
Chris: Yes I wouldn’t want to go through a liurgy, that would kill you yes your faith would just wither up and die, not!!
Pringle: God I do, I pray with all my heart that never actually happen. That we would not just become religious people by any sense of the imagination but that we would be here because of a passion, here because of a fire, something that God lit on the inside of me. 40 years ago and it’s not gone out. There are times when it seems to burn low in some areas and if I was to ask you right now to write down what you are on fire about, would there be anything on the piece of paper?
Would you say yes I’m on fire course I ask myself that. What am I on fire about?
Chris: Are you on fire enough? Is there enough fire? Notice he is turning this into law. You’re looking on the inside going “Well am I fired up enough, do I have enough fire that I could please God with? Yes this is bad law because it’s not biblical law
Pringle: What should I be on fire about that I’m not on fire about? That I need to stir the fire. You know, and you need reminders like like every morning I eat porridge. I don’t know, once years ago I read how that oats, the superfood, low g.i., low calorie, high energy, slow burning, keep you going until lunchtime so that you are not going to feel hungry about anything else. You know, even help you in your workout and protein – that’s why I got the body. I know you wondered why, it’s the porridge in the morning! So you say that’s definitely why I’m not going to eat it
But you know you go on holidays and you kind of drift a little, the fire for porridge burns low, it’s not easy. I mean it’s not hard to lose the fire for porridge honestly. It’s the most boring thing on the earth. And I don’t mean your spicing it up with treacle brown sugar and cream, you don’t do that but you ask for it in the hotel it’s too boring on its own. That’s how you got to eat it it’s boring. Salt maybe a bit of yoghurt?
That’s it. So, so and, and you think this is doing me good this is doing me good and you feel better because of it and you do.
Then you go on holiday and you just sneak a bit of toast because you, because you’re from New Zealand you have butter like, I have a slab of butter on my toast, my children have always asked me “are you having toast with that butter?” It’s like I have butter and I put the honey all over – it’s hot and you eat one and you’ve got the coffee and I think “oh God I’ve died and gone to heaven.”
And, and, and, and, and you just get completely seduced and you’re backslidden. I’m, I want you to get back to the word amen! I’d like you to get the fire back for the Bible.
Chris: Yes, if anyone gets a fire for the Bible, the first place they have got to leave is C3 Church in Sydney Australia.
Pringle: So if you’re feeding yourself with stuff that’s going to burn and burn on the inside of you, cleanse you, feed you, and get you going – in the beginning was the word , not just a word, but the word, the word of God. And this word was Jesus himself
Pringle: God spoke Christ into creation before anything else.
Chris: Ah, what??? God spoke Christ into creation? That’s the Arian heresy! No joke, that’s the Arian heresy. Wow that’s amazingly bad.
Pringle: So that all things were made through him, for him, by him and to him.
Christ is that the centre of all creation and he is the word that sustains all things. That is why all creation is so beautiful. So wonderful, so magnificent. Because when you look at it, the universal language, everybody stands in awe. At mountains that rising to the sky, oceans that roar and rivers that gurgle and animals, creatures and beasts everywhere – they are a manifestation of the beauty and glory of God. Of Jesus himself. He got into creation right at the beginning. And you will find at the beginning of every miracle, at the beginning of every great event in your life, there is a word.
Chris: No! Wrong! That’s not what this is teaching.
Pringle: Words that come from God into our hearts. If I was to say what’s the word of God for you this year, that’s my second question this morning. First one was what are you on fire about? The second one what’s your word for the year.
Have you heard it? Because God has a word for you, He has something to speak into your world.
Chris: Ah no, that’s not what John 1 is teaching at all! Nowhere in scripture does it teach this doctrine especially John 1.
Pringle: It may not be like an audible voice, very rarely is it going to be. 99% of us don’t hear it like that. We just feel a drawing, we have a hankering,we have a knowing.
We have, it’s not like it’s crystal clear, words just popping into our head. And a longing, a desire or dream starts to form in our heart.
Chris: Says no biblical text anywhere.
Pringle: You give it time and pray on it and it becomes more clear and gold starts to fall. If you had a word from God what would it be about this coming year? Because he will speak into your life. In Acts 20:32 it says “so now brethren I commend you to God and to the word of his grace which is able to build you up give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified”
So as long as we remain among all those who are sanctified, the church, and we are feeding on this word, you find that it will release into you, the ability to take what is yours, your inheritance.
Chris: Wrong!!! Wrong!! You are totally mangling the apostle Paul’s words in Acts 20. He is not saying that as long as you stay in the word, that it will empower you or enable you to take what is yours! That is not what this text is saying, this is straight up word of faith heresy. In fact it engages in eisigesis.
Pringle: God has an inheritance for you in this life. You don’t want to get to heaven and find there is a whole warehouse full of provisions that were meant for you. A whole warehouse…
Chris: Oh no!! A whole warehouse!! Of provisions that were meant for me! They’re just sitting there languishing in heaven! No biblical text teaches this either!
Pringle: – A whole house full of things and events and opportunities that were meant for you. But because we got distracted, and you will find there are 1000 things that will try and contest your attention on the Bible and prayer.
Chris: Yes and on top of the list right now, Phil Pringle is one of those demonic devilish things designed to distract us from God’s Word.
Pringle: …. and going to church. 1 Corinthians 14:31, check this out, I don’t know if you’ve ever read this verse before, “You can all prophecy” – everybody say that, “you can all prophesy”. I know we think that…..
Chris: – yes, let’s do a little cross reference work here. Does God’s Word teach that all can prophesy? No it does not, let’s take a look at the clear passage first. 1 Corinthians chapter 12 verse 29 “Are all apostles? No. Are all prophets? No. Are all teachers? No. Do all work miracles? No. Do all possess gifts of healing? No. Do all speak with tongues? No. Do all interpret? No.”
Now you might be thinking, “well my Bible doesn’t have the word ‘no’ in it. Yes, well it’s there in the Greek, by the way. Untranslated particle “me” means the question being asked to be understood as being answered in the negative. “Me pontus apostolo” – are all apostles? No! Are all prophets? No. In fact the whole point of 1 Corinthians 12 is that God, the Holy Spirit, gives all kinds of gifts. Differing gifts and that we together are the body of Christ and there are different gifts given for different people to serve different functions within the body of Christ. Straight up! And this is one of the false teachings of the charismatic and Pentecostal movements, that all receive the gift, of the Holy Spirit, that all can prophecy. Scripture does not teach that at all. You know, it does not make it so that everybody receives the same gifts. In fact the whole point of 1 Corinthians 12 is that everybody receives different gifts, that’s why not all are apostles, not all prophesy.
Now let’s take a look at what’s going on in 1 Corinthians 14, here Phil Pringle makes it sound like ALL can prophesy. No that’s not what it says. Ok, here’s what it says when we do this in context, verse 29, 1 Corinthians 14:29 “Let two or three prophets speak, let the others weigh what is said. For revelation is made to another sitting there, let the first be silent, for you can all prophecy one by one so that all may learn and be encouraged”. Aha! It doesn’t say all can prophesy, it says two or at the most three. Alright? That’s what it’s saying, and you can all prophecy one by one, that’s his point.
He just twisted God’s Word, wow, again! This is egregious!
Pringle: – ….reserved for prophets and and people who are the super saints in Christendom but here Paul is saying to the Corinthian church that you can all prophesy
Chris: – No he’s not! When you put it back in context he says two or three. You can all prophesy one at a time, is his point.
Pringle: – …every single one of us. Jesus said “say to this mountain, be removed”. He says pray….
Chris: – No he did not! No he didn’t! He said “IF you say to this mountain”!
Pringle: – …and say the two go together, it’s not just about praying, it’s about prophesying and speaking it into your world.
Chris: – Ok, you just took Jesus out of context and made him teach something he didn’t teach. Wow!! This is blow your mind, crazy bad, Word of faith heresy stuff going on here.
Pringle: – in 14 verse 3, 1 Corinthians 14:3 it says “he who prophecies speaks edification or building up the house, exhortation or encouragement and comfort to men. He who speaks in a tongue edifices himself but he who prophecies edifices the church”. You and I should put our tongue on the altar this year, separated to the purpose of building the house of God. What are you going to speak this year? In the beginning was the word. The beginning of a bad thing is a bad word, the beginning of a good thing is a good word. And if you are a preacher, a prophesier of good news, that is what you’re going to bring into your life….
Chris: – A preacher or prophesier of good news – the good news is the good news that Christ died for our sins. Notice now he is saying a prophesier or preacher of good news is one who uses good words to create good things in the reality of his life. This is straight up Word of Faith heresy, this is unbelievable.
Pringle: – The life of our church all around us. Let’s be those who are prophesying to build up the house of God.
Alright, Colossians 1:17 the Holman Bible says, “he is before all things and by him all things hold together”.
Chris: – Notice every passage out of context, this is the ‘rip it out of context’, string it together like pearls on a string, way of proof texting. He’s not exegetical ant text.
Pringle: – We spoke about Jesus being before all things and this is the word. It’s talking about him being the word. By him all things consist and hold together. When your life starts falling apart, it’s because the word is not holding you together.
Chris: – What!!!! That’s taking an analogy or metaphor literally. Oh man, wow!!
Pringle: – The word is what holds your life together. People often, and I meet them, are emotionally falling apart. Mentally falling apart. Relationally falling apart. Financially falling apart.
Chris: – well you’re theologically and doctrinally falling apart right here.
Pringle: – When your world starts falling apart you’ve got to think, the word that created the world, also keeps together it together. The same word that brought everything into existence, is holding it in existence. Once God withdraws that word it all falls apart, it collapses. What we have spoken into our world is what we have got and if we keep speaking it….
Chris: – What we have spoken into our world is what we’ve got? Again, Word of Faith heresy.
Pringle: – It’ll hold it together and if you have been speaking negativity, sickness…
Chris: – Yes. This assumes you’re God by the way, or that you’re a little deity.
Pringle: – …and tiredness into your body, the way you’re going to keep being like that is to keep speaking that!
Chris: – Right, yes, if you’re sick it’s because you spoke negativity into your body right?
Pringle: – You could change things today you could change your way of speaking and say, you know what….?
Chris: – Yes, wrong!!!!! Nowhere in scripture does it say if you change your way of speaking, you’ll get different results. This is magic! This is not Christian doctrine.
Pringle: – I’m not going to acknowledge how are I feel any more, in Christ I’m strong, I’m powerful, I have health, I have blessing on my life, in Jesus’ name. You will find that you will actually start to hold together under the worst of circumstances under the most high-pressure times. Luke 8:11 says, now the parable is this, “The seed is the word of God”. All of us in our prayer life have a finished result….
Chris: – Another verse out of context. He’s not exegeting, he’s proof texting.
Pringle: – That’s what I want, I want that tree, I want that finished looking thing. The fact is God doesn’t give you the tree, he gives you the seed and the seed is the word of God.
Chris: – Yes, that’s not the purpose of the parable of the sowers and the soils. No!
Pringle: – How do you want your marriage, how do you want your family, how do you want your finances, how do you want your business. Don’t be just reflecting what’s happening back in your words start reflecting on what the word is saying into your circumstances. And as you start to prophesy and speak in a different way about your world, you will find that it starts to change things. Things will come to pass.
Chris: – apparently all of us can prophesy and that means that, and he had to rip a verse, totally mangle it to say this, and now you can prophesy and create a better tomorrow for yourself with your words. This is not what scripture teaches!
Pringle: – You plant a seed into your own heart and into the circumstances around you. Hebrews 10:23 says we must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith.
Chris: – Yes and the author of Hebrews is not saying that we ‘decree and declare’ by faith things that are future prophetically. Again out of context – you are utterly twisting God’s word here here and showing you are a full blown heretic.
Pringle: – The one who made the promise is faithful God didn’t give you dreams to tease you, he gave you dreams to see them come to pass.
Chris: – I am absolutely flabbergasted at the absolute audacity of this man to twist the word of God in this egregious way. I can’t believe that a man like Louis Giglio and others went to his Presence Conference when this is the straight up heresy this man is preaching and teaching – that you somehow create your future with your positive prophetic words. Unbelievable! We continue:
Pringle: – So I would like you to change your thinking, change your way of speaking. And when we prophesy with our mouth we actually reprogram our head.
Chris: – Says no biblical text anywhere!
Pringle: – we can ask if there’re any programmers here. Computer programmers, they used to be known as geeks. Now they are known as billionaires and you know like you know like you might be there looking at your screen programmimg, programming and you know that what you’re programming into your computer is what it’s going to bring back to you. What you program into this, is what what it’s going to bring back to you. This doesn’t know what is true.
Chris: – He’s pointing to your brain.
Pringle: – Your brain only believes what it’s told – what you are being told is extremely important. Jesus said be careful what you hear because you need to have truth coming in to your thinking.
Chris: – There’s no truth coming into the thinking there at C3 Church. This is all flat out twisting of God’s Word – no truth being taught there.
Pringle: – just anybody’s thoughts about how the world is meant to run, but truth and that’s why it’s imperative to be in the word of God so you reprogram your thinking by your tongue. Proverbs 30:32 says “If you’ve thought evil in your mind put your hand on your mouth.” Don’t say it, don’t give voice to negatives in your thinking, just…
Chris: – let’s read Proverbs 30:32 in context, in a good translation. Here’s what it says: “If you have been foolish exalting yourself or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth; for pressing milk produces curds, pressing the nose produces blood, pressing anger produces strife”. Yes, when you go back and you put all these verses in context they don’t teach the theology that he’s teaching. He’s teaching a theology and forcing God’s Word to support his doctrines. He’s not teaching what the Bible teaches.
Pringle: – ….it’s having an impact on your world and the Holy Spirit falls on all those things that are the word of God. You will find that when you speak the word, God is watching it to fulfill it. He says I watch over my word to fulfill it.
Chris: – Yes apparently your words are His words? Yes, that’s what I took from that, and that’s not what the Bible teaches either.
Pringle: – He’s not watching over our words, He’s watching over his word in our mouth so that He can fulfil it. That little tongue – don’t think it’s insignificant because of its size. Do you know the most dangerous creature on earth? Not the lion, not a hippopotamus, not an alligator. No! A mosquito! It kills more people every year than any other creature on earth – such a tiny thing, how could a little thing like that be so dangerous? Don’t think your tongue is insignificant. James says in 3 verse 4 look at the ships although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds they are still turned a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue, your tongue can point your boat, your entire huge life..
Chris: – Notice again James out of context, and every verse is out of context. And when you go back and look at them in context they are not teaching this theology.
Pringle: – ..in any direction you want it to go even though they are driven about by fierce winds, you might find the fiercest of winds a blowing against you today. Winds from every direction you might have emotional winds, mental winds, relational winds..
Chris: – Yes these are the winds of heresy and false doctrine.
Pringle: – …blowing in your life and if your tongue stays on course so will your whole life. You’ll make it through the storm you’ll get to the other side.
Chris: – Yes apparently it’s your tongue that is your saviour not Jesus
Pringle: – you’ll feel the rugged moments, you’ll feel the waves, you’ll feel the storm but I’m telling you keep that tongue under control, and you’ll get…
Chris: – You’re telling them not God
Pringle: – …to the other side. Prophesy to the storm prophesy to your life and you’ll find your way through the worst of storms and the darkest of nights in Jesus’ name amen? Come on, help me here!
Chris: – No, you’re hijacking Jesus’ name. You’re actually breaking the commandment that you’ll not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
Pringle: – Now listen, Ezekiel is one of the craziest prophets in the Old Testament. He was either filled with the spirit….
Chris: – Here we go, out of context.
Pringle: – ….or on drugs. But I think the things he saw, my God, wheels within wheels.
I’ll opt for the fact that he was filled with the Spirit but in verse 10 of Ezekiel 37 he said so I prophesied as he commanded me and the breath entered them and they came to life..
Chris: – Yes Ezekiel 37 in the valley of the dry bones is a prophecy regarding the resurrection God himself gives us the interpretation – it is not teaching the word of faith heresy.
Pringle: – they stood on their feet, there were enough of them to form a very large army. I spoke, I prophesied as he commanded me. That’s why I asked you what would the word be for your life this year. If He has spoken a word into your life it’s not just so you can have it. It’s so that you can speak it. And when you speak it something will happen. He says “I prophesied as he commanded means as soon…
Chris: – Yes Ezekiel 37 is not teaching what he is saying. What he just said is is absolutely patently false. Ezekiel 37 has nothing whatsoever to do with this.
Pringle: – …he did something started to happen. As soon as you start to speak about this coming year with a different kind of language and than the way you have spoken about other things in your life – when you say I’m going to get my mouth “born again” today. I’m going to…
Chris: – Yes, this is utter nonsense, no biblical text teaches this. Especially Ezekiel 37.
Pringle: – …get this tongue converted. That slippery little beast in there is going to come under control and Jesus’ name I’m going to speak into my year ahead. And you can all prophecy. Understand….
Chris: – No you cannot all prophesy because scripture says not all are prophets.
Pringle: – Prophesying isn’t just the expounding of wishful thinking it is an effectual powerful way of transforming yourself and your circumstances. Every…
Chris: – Says no biblical text anywhere.
Pringle: – You speak you put a seed into your future
Chris: – No text says that either.
Pringle: – Grow a tree and you are going to grow some of the greatest things in this coming year. You might be saying what’s God got for me? He’s got for you what is in the word, not in the circumstances. If you leave it to chance, anything could happen but why don’t you today pick up the sword of the spirit which is the word of God and start to speak into your future, speak into your world and start to rule in life by Christ Jesus and everybody said amen. Woah, everybody needs a new day.
I thought I would study the life of a prophet, and so I’m looking at the life of Elijah. Now Elijah, the Bible says he’s a guy like you and I. He is subject to self pity, he gets depressed he gets anxious. There’s moments when he’s full of fear. Fearless in front of an entire nation, and in front of 400 prophets on the top of a mountain, in front of everybody, he’s fearless. But then the next day one woman says I’m going to get to you. So Jezebel is after Elijah he runs into the wilderness. Now this is a very long passage of scripture so I’m not going to read it all. 1 Kings 19 but it says in verse 4, it says he went a day’s journey into the wilderness, he sat down under a tree, prayed that he might die – enough! Now I’ll take my life I’m no better than…..
Chris: – Notice what he said. “It’s a long passage I don’t have time to read the whole thing”. You would have had plenty of time to read it if you had started with that and exegeted the whole thing correctly. You’re not interested in that though. You’re teaching a theology that you made up.
Pringle: – He lay and he slept. That’s a good first step in recovery. Just to get some sleep. And then an angel said arise and eat. Touched him and he looked by his head and God had provided him with some food. He ate and went back to sleep! Then the angel came back a second time and touched him arise and eat because the journey is too great for you. I worry for people who do not read the Bible who do not spend time in prayer.
Chris: – yes you didn’t teach them the Bible – you totally sliced it, diced it and mangled it.
Pringle: – The journey before us is too great without that power.
Chris: – Narcissistic eisigesis here.
Pringle: – …in our lives. If we are trying to achieve a destiny at that level in our word level, our spiritual life is at this level….
Chris: – Yes, your destiny level is way higher than your word level. You better get your word count up so that you can prophesy to make the destiny thingy happen. Yes right no biblical text teaches this either!
Pringle: – We need to lift that level of the word of God dominating our thinking and dominating our heart so that we are equal to the responsibilities. So when the anxieties…
Chris: – No text teaches this either.
Pringle: – …come we’ve got push back. When the pressure comes we’ve got reinforces and we’re not overwhelmed and collapsed by the things because we have a deposit of the word of God on the inside of us. Paul says to the Colossians “let the word of God dwell in you richly”…
Chris: – Yes he does that but you have taken it out of context and Paul did not teach your theology either
Pringle: – …in all wisdom let His word get inside of you and not with their? vacant souls with just hopeful thoughts and a few prayers inside of us. But we have solid word on the inside of us.
Chris: – yes but there’s nothing solid about the word you gave. It was about as solid as a slice of Swiss cheese.
Pringle: – He comes out to the mouth of the cave, not because of something dramatic and the dramatic came. There was the wind that broke rocks, there was an earthquake that moved the mountain. There was a fire that burned everything and we are so addicted to the big and the dramatic. We’ve watched all the movies and I think all these people, they live their entire life like that it would be about three years long because nobody could take that life we just have that ordinary pedestrian and do the same thing day after day after day after day after day that’s how ..life isn’t always huge dramatic. The thing that got Elijah to the mouth of the cave was not the dramatic it was the still small voice and it was something very quiet something so subtle so easily missed on the inside. But he heard this voice and the voice said what are you doing here, what are you doing here. He wasn’t talking about the cave, your fears have misplaced you. Your depression has mispositioned you. You’re meant to be out there.
Chris: – Yes you do know that God had mercy on Elijah and told him to get his affairs together, brought him home to heaven.
Pringle: – Say Lord this year I’m going to put myself on that altar of prayer, the bible…
Chris: – Yes you go right ahead, just put yourself on that altar. It isn’t going to help anything because this is not what scripture actually teachers regarding that.
Pringle: – …the house of God. You are going to find fresh fire falls on your life…
Chris: – No, this is strange fire but not fresh fire..
Pringle: – Meaningfulness and purpose as God gives you a job to do. Sends you on a mission. The bible is so important to have in your life. You know the fact is, there’s been so many attempts on the Word of God to destroy it. Voltaire, he claimed he would destroy every bible from the world.
Chris: – Cue sappy music, this is an emotional manipulation technique designed to create the false impression that God is now descending on the audience to get them to make decisions. Apparently the decision God you to make you use your words to make you prophesy your future into existence which doesn’t make any sense because the Holy Spirit doesn’t teach this theology in His written word at all.
Pringle: – a room where he made that statement in, became the printing press for the Geneva Bible Publishing Society He he he. Voltaire s gone, the bible hasn’t. It’s here for you and I to get in our lives and to start speaking. God will watch over His word to bring it to pass.
Chris: – Done, that was Phil Pringle’s sermon “Prophesy” and what a mess that was. Yes and that’s teaching magic and that’s just the doctrines of demons.Read your bible, you’ll find when you read it cover to cover, no biblical text actually teaches this theology and there’s a reason for that, because this is a man made doctrine and Phil Pringle is a false prophet, false apostle, false teacher and somebody who twists and mangles Gods Word and nobody who is truly a Christian should ever be listening to him.
You guys are the BOMB. I began listening to fighting for the faith in April 2014. The Assemblies of God church I was attending began to teach out of the book, The Circlemaker by Mark Batterson. I read 30 pages and KNEW something was wrong. I googled it and saw a YouTube video of Chris Rosebrough Debunking the Circlemaker. Long story short, after 68 years in the Assemblies of God I am NOW a Confessional Lutheran. Chris Rosebrough helped me see the TRUTH.
Word of Faith + Arianism + NAR + music worship (Hillsong style) + tithing doctrine = Pringle’$ c3church $morgasbord of here$y.
