Introducing Gutless Anonymous Website Owner

Brother Douglas received a link to this site via email that I guess was an attempt to get him to stop writing about wolves like Todd Bentley….fortunately for the Body of Christ Douglas stands on the Rock and was undeterred by the stupidity contained in the article that I’m going to address in this post. Be prepared for one of the strongest posts I have ever written as I address a gutless anonymous website owner and his stupid statements directed at those of us who have the courage to stand up against the wolves this gutless anonymous website owner worships and adores……

For the record I have attempted to contact the owner of www.spiritlessons.com through two separate email addresses I found on the site and as of July 13, 2008 I have yet to receive a response which doesn’t really surprise me……lets begin examining parts of the article….

If you listen to them carefully you will hear the voice of the accuser of the brethren. Though they can be very religious, refined & educated, and serving the Lord, though their speech is peppered with bible quotes and they recite many scriptural truths, the motivation of their heart is more for accusation than intercession”.

So now this gutless anonymous website owner can read into the heart and minds and know our motivations for exposing false teachers like Todd Bentley? I suppose if I said something as stupid as gutless anonymous website owner I’d remain anonymous too. I suppose when we watch a clown like Todd Bentley kick a man with colon cancer in the stomach we don’t have the right to conclude that Bentley is a violent and disturbed man eh gutless anonymous website owner?

They deal in the faults of others like a gambler deals with cards, exposing every sin, flaw or doctrinal error that a person has made. In pretending to be the sheep dog, defending the flock, they have actually divided us.

Phil Naessens

So we aren’t supposed to attempt to correct others who teach outright heresy anymore? Hmmm….that’s interesting. We aren’t supposed to address the beliefs of the Mormons or the Jehovah Witnesses when their teaching contradicts the Word of God? The only ones doing the dividing are the false teachers that are leading others to believe and teach a false Jesus….and how pray tell does gutless anonymous website owner knows that folks like me are pretending? Gazing into a crystal ball? Tarot cards? Maybe a dream after eating too much pizza?

These are our own Christian brothers and sisters in the enemy camp, we are not fighting against them, but the powers that hold them captive. We must fight to set them free, and bring them back into the Lord’s army.

The battle lines are drawn, we can NOT ignore this war any longer. We have lost too much ground and too many souls to this army, now we must fight for complete victory!

Phil Naessens

Now who’s attempting division? This gutless anonymous website owner is a walking contradiction. Why on earth would I listen to a gutless anonymous website owner like this clod? The site and its contents would carry much more weight if gutless anonymous website owner would at least have the courage to sign a name to his nattering don’t ya think?

This Christian Civil War was prophesied by other people, and shown to me in a dream.

Dream: I saw the Lord’s church represented by a military base. Everybody had different positions and jobs. There were ground soldiers, fighter pilots, guards, captains, generals, etc. Everything looked fine and in order. But then I noticed something strange. Everyone was going about their duty when all of a sudden, a dispersed group of OUR ground soldiers (who happened to look like Storm Troupers) started marching in complete unity toward a specific area. This group was comprised of people from all different areas of the military base. They marched onto these wooden platforms that were high above the entrance of the airplane hanger. They marched in lock step, as though they were being given orders by some unseen force. The rest of us were amazed, and didn’t know what to make of this strange situation. When they got to the edge of these platforms they all pulled out their guns (AK-47s). I looked in amazement and said to myself, “what are you guys doing? Who are you responding to?” When the first airplane came out from the hanger, all the soldiers shot at it. There was no chance for our pilot. Such a hail of bullets came against him that the airplane was destroyed. The pilot could not go fast enough to escape. I thought, “BETRAYAL“. The rest of us who were not part of this group started running in fear. This group shot down one plane after another, it was a complete slaughter. All the pilots tried to go top speed out of this hanger, but they had no chance. We were losing all our best fighter pilots. In real terms, 1 pilot in the air was more powerful that 100 ground soldiers, but none of the pilots could ever get up. Then one pilot took a different path. Instead of trying to escape, and save his life, he turned his plain straight at the wooden platform that the soldiers were standing on, and crashed right into it, sacrificing himself. This collapsed the structure holding the men, and killed many soldiers in the betraying army. Somehow, after this happened, it broke the unity of that army, throwing them into chaos. They where still hostile to us, but no longer had unity.

I’m always amazed how these folks conveniently have dreams and visions that coincide with their agendas….I rank this one right up there with Todd Bentley’s “vision” of visiting the Apostle Paul in heaven at his “log cabin”….Bentley removed this “vision” from his website after many of us challenged this unscriptural vision and I wonder how long it will take gutless anonymous website owner to do the same with this “vision”.

Gutless anonymous website owner

This war became blatantly obvious to me when I began building this website. In investigating people who were given face to face visitations by Jesus Christ, I saw a clear and organized effort to discredit them. So much slander was in place, that anyone investigating these people would most likely be turned away before they ever knew their testimony.

For example, in doing a simple Goggle search on Rick Joyner, 4 of the top 5 results were negative, 3 were blatantly accusational. “Dangerous teacher”, “Self-proclaimed Prophet”, “False teacher”, “a man in the grip of evil deceit”, “the spirit of darkness and deception”, “Most unsound and dangerous teachers”, etc. Similar accusation have been made against many of the people shown on this site. In fact, entire Christian websites have been dedicated to the discrediting the God’s people. In many cases there are more attacks coming from within the Church than from secular sources!

Phil Naessens

Rick Joyner is a proven false prophet and as such should NOT be considered one of Gods “people” unless he repents of his false prophecies. As far as testimonies go what about the three year old girl that Bentley claimed was resurrected from the dead only this turned out to be a false testimony which I have personally confirmed with the hospital? Are we not supposed to point these things out?

Recently many attacks have come against Todd Bentley and the Florida Healing Outpouring revival. These attacks claim that many of the healing miracles that are happening are false, and that the revival is not of God. But upon personal investigation in Lakeland, Florida, I interviewed 25 people were miraculously healed, confirmed by multiple sources (Pastors, Relatives, Friends, etc). I saw 100s of other miracles and signs, but was not able to interview all the people.

 

Phil Naessens

Again these claims would carry much more weight if gutless anonymous website owner told us who he is don’t ya think?

Gutless anonymous website owner

This army that attacks strategic movements of God is filled with many well intentioned Christians that have been deceived by the “Angel of Light”. They listen to the voice of the accuser, thinking it’s the voice of Jesus.  Many of us, have at one time been a part of this army, used by the devil, but have later repented. When a Christian learns the real voice of  the Shepherd, he will never join this army.

This army has been used against every advancement in the Church. The Protestant Reformation, Evangelical revolution, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Prophetic, Apostolic, Spiritual Gifts, Healings, Signs, etc.  We can no longer just sit back and assume that this army is just a group of concerned Christians with disagreements.

 

Phil Naessens

I listen to the voice of Jesus through His Written Word gutless anonymous website owner which is something most of the “movements” you have listed fail to even teach from. Many of the movements listed are based on experience that has very little to do with Scripture.

Gutless anonymous website owner

We must…

1.      Counter them in the media, on the web, in blogs, etc,

2.      Pray that their influence would diminish,

3.      Confront them with the truth,

4.      Bring to light those things they are trying to discredit and slander

5.      Pray that their accusations would not spread, but be rejected

6.      Intercede for their freedom & pray that the Lord’s (redemptive) judgments would bring them back. (not wrathful judgment)

Phil Naessens

1). Please do just bring Scripture and not your personal experience.

2). Go right ahead and pray for me as I pray for you.

3). Yes please do….again bring the Word which is all truth.

4). You are welcome to challenge ANYTHING on this blog just bring Scripture to show my error.

5). See #2

6). See #2

 

In conclusion I would like to add that IMHO we are in a war today people but not with folks like Todd Bentley or gutless anonymous website owner….they are only deceived at best and deceivers at worst. Our war is with Satan and I’ll leave you with some Scripture I pray will help us all in our battle with the prince of the air;

Ephesians 6:10-20 (ESV)

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

  1. Hi Phil,

    Good work. This is the site I ran across a few days ago and anytime I see a site where the owner wants to remain anonymous and cast stones, I give the site a “zero” in integrity and honesty.

    I noticed he recommends the work of Bob Jones and we all know about him. Then there is Thomas A’Kempis who was a German mystic from the 1400’s.

    This is a quote by A’Kempis:

    “If you wish to have true peace of mind and unity of purpose,
    you must cast all else aside and keep only yourself before your eyes.”

    (Me)
    This is rank humanism and all about “self”. Our focus should always be on Christ, not self. Kempis also said –

    “Of two evils we must always choose the least.”

    Quite contrary to the Word of God.

    Prov 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

    Prov 4:27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

    Just wanted to add that Thomas a’Kempis is another poster boy for the emergent/postmodern movement. Tony Jones starts with an a’Kempis quote in his book Soul Sharper and on page 254 makes the following statement: “Thomas a Kempis has guided us throughout our exploration of ancient spiritual practices.”

    Yeah – ancient PAGAN spiritual practices….

    Anyway, obviously this site owner doesn’t use discernment…and seeing this, we know his battle cry is not based on much substance…but probably based in emotionalism….which is not a sound foundation.

  2. Good post Phil. Loved the name you gave this anonymous guy. 🙂

    I too came across this guys article in defense of Bentley/Lakeland a few weeks ago. It was good to read it again along with your excellent rebuttal!

    I had forgotten that he had mentioned interviewing… “25 people who were miraculously healed, confirmed by multiple sources”…

    Perhaps Nightline should have interviewd him instead of Todd, who couldn’t come up with 3.

  3. Bro. Phil,

    You never cease to make me smile when you take folks apart like this. The Monday after I got the e-mail. I printed the page ans showed it to my friends who had a good laugh over this. This is nothing more than what I call the “spoilt baby complex”. You attack them – they feel you hate them and want their blood…sad.

    It’s all because of one paper I was writing – it’s academically inferior and quite circular at times, yet someone [I am being an idealist and hoping the site owner didn’t do this…] feels threatened by a 17 year old Baptist guitarist? How funny! 😀

  4. Hey Phil,

    I found out the man who runs this site is Robert Brownell…I found a discussion at Charisma…and he was mentioned.

    http://forums.charismamag.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2663

    Anyway, even those in this discussion can’t defend Todd Bentley either, so I guess he needs to add the Charisma forum to his list of ministries to attack. It was refreshing to see some there who are not deceived.

  5. I like the name you gave the article. Wonderful analysis too. Viewed the article on yomisays. These guys are disillusioned. The visions they claim to see are figments of their imagination.
