This blog is nearly two years old and during this time we’ve spotlighted dozens upon dozen of heresies and the heretics that promote them. I’ve used the word hireling often when describing these people. As I will demonstrate in the following article Dr. Nasir Siddiki is the very definition of a hireling.

John 10:12-13

But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.

What is a hireling? The Greek word in the above instance is μισθωτός(misthōtos) and means;

1) one hired, a hireling

Now this could mean someone good or bad but as Jesus initially describes Himself as the Good Shepherd in verse 11 and in verse 14 I think its safe to assume that a hireling in this instance is someone unlike the Good Shepherd.

When you go to Dr. Siddiki’s website you will quickly discover there is very little if anything that is freely given but there are plenty of opportunities for you to spend your money. This is typical for a Word of Faith/Prosperity/Healing ministry and should come as no surprise. (source)

Books, tapes and conferences are featured on this website. Opportunities to make an offering or to become a “partner” are also offered. Mind you none of these opportunities are free unless of course you become a “partner” and Siddiki will send you a tape for free. (source)

In and of itself there really isn’t anything wrong with charging to attend a conference or to attach a fee for a book or CD. These things cost money my friends and if you want a book or to attend a conference I think its fair you should have to pay something. Even John MacArthur makes you pay for the books that he writes.

I did sign up for a free magazine on miracles (source) and free teachings via email (source). It will be quite interesting to see what Siddiki is giving away for free. I’ll keep you posted.

I went through all 20 pages of the online store that contains Siddiki’s various teachings. The main theme of course was how to get money. The other usual suspects like positive confession, healing, praying in tongues were all part of the fare. All of these products range in price from $1.99 to $60 USD. (source)

There’s even a link where Jesus is mentioned. I had a fairly good idea what would be behind the link but I figured I would press the link anyway. I wasn’t even mildly surprised at what was on that page. (source)

Prayer for Salvation

If you’ve never received Jesus as your Savior and Lord, you can do it today. The following prayer is the one I prayed and the one I led Asif (my brother) in praying. Pray it now from your heart and your life both in the here and now, and in the hereafter, will be forever changed:
“Father God, I come before You admitting that I’m a sinner, and I ask your forgiveness. I thank You for sending Jesus to the cross to pay the penalty for my sin. I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is Your Son. I believe that He died on the cross, rose again and now sits at Your right hand. I receive Him now as my Lord and Savior. Heavenly Father, please come into my heart and change me. I will serve You for the rest of my life. I pray this in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.”
{Call, write or e-mail us if you prayed this prayer so we can send materials to live a victorious life.}

 

Apparently that’s all it takes for someone to become a “Christian”. As hard as I try I haven’t been able to find anyone in the New Testament praying a prayer such as this “Prayer of Salvation” that Siddiki claims will cause you to change your life. This is a man-made prayer invented by a man named Charles Finney.

Frankly speaking why would anyone in their right mind ask someone they’ve never met to come into their heart and change their life forever? I know I wouldn’t. Would you?

You aren’t going to find Jesus by reading the Wisdom Ministries website. You may think you have if the Jesus you’re looking for is going to prosper you greatly or will heal all of your diseases or how the Holy Spirit will lead you into wise choices when investing in stock. That’s the Jesus Dr. Nasir Siddiki is peddling and frankly speaking that isn’t the Jesus written about in the Bible.

Why is Siddiki a hireling? In my opinion his website is set up to sell a Jesus that doesn’t exist if one were to actually take the time to investigate who Jesus was and is. This website and the various teachings have nothing whatsoever to do with sin, forgiveness, restoration or regeneration. The only ones that will prosper from Siddiki’s teachings are the Siddiki’s.

Friends. If you really desire to learn about Jesus, rather then spending 100’s of dollars on man-made teachings why not cruise over to e-sword and download the 100’s of materials they have for free and learn all about a Jesus that is foreign to Siddiki. You’ll be happy you did.
