Is the Word of Faith Movement a cult? Lets look at the facts:
1) The WOF was founded by a man named EW Kenyon that mixed Christian Science with Christianity. He was fond of Mary Baker Eddy's writings and he used the same catch phrases and teachings that the Christian Scientist do. (if you do not believe me then Google Christian Science, it will sound very familiar to you if you are Word of Faith)
2) Prophet Kenneth Hagin claims to have had numerous one on one meetings with Jesus Christ in which he received doctrine and insight which he taught extensively. Many scholars have charged that Kenneth Hagin plagiarized much of Kenyon's writings. I have seen pages and pages of evidence myself.
Are you in The Word of Faith Movement? If you are, then you are in a cultic religion that is based on the teachings of a man that claims that Jesus Christ appeared numerous times to him. That is SCARY! So dangerous! Wake up! Get out! Leave!
3) If you are in this Movement, and approach your leadership with questions about these visions and the New Age teachings, you will be treated like a snake. If you question these teachings and visions, all of the people in the Movement that you know will begin to shun you.
SIGNS OF A CULT:
1) A cult is led by a strong, charismatic leader that claims to have extra-biblical revelation. This includes visions, and unorthodox theology.
2) A cult revolves around the man and his revelations
3) In a cult, there is much pressure to conform, and if you begin to ask too many direct questions about the teaching, you will be ostracized!
If you are in The Movement, and if you are honest, you know for yourself the heavy emphasis on money. This alone should set off alarms in your spirit.
