I just got a heaping helping full of the references that this man uses for this book.
Cindy Jacobs, C. Peter Wagner, John Wimber mixed in with Calvin, Wuest and any other reputatable men that can be thrown in to give this trash credence.
Pg 586 gives "mental illnesses" the same "chemical imbalance" theory as the secularists do - just for one thing that would "bury" a person.
And one thing that you see repeated often is that this type teaching hasn't been in the Church, in the past. I wonder why.
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils
Albert Barnes Notes on "Doctrines of devils" -
""Greek, Teachings of demons - διδασκαλίαις δαιμωνίων didaskaliais daimōniōn. This may either mean teachings respecting demons, or teachings by demons. The particular sense must be determined by the connection. Ambiguity of this kind in the construction of words, where one is in the genitive case, is not uncommon; compare Joh_15:9-10; Joh_21:15. Instances of the construction where the genitive denotes the object, and should be translated concerning, occur in Mat_9:25; The gospel of the kingdom, i. e., concerning the kingdom; Mat_10:1; Power of unclean spirits, i. e., over or concerning unclean spirits; so, also, Act_4:9; Rom_16:15; 2Co_1:5; Eph_3:1; Rev_2:13. Instances of construction where the genitive denotes the agent, occur in the following places: Luk_1:69, A horn of salvation, i. e., a horn which produces or causes salvation; Joh_6:28; Rom_3:22; 2Co_4:10; Eph_4:18; Col_2:11. Whether the phrase here means that, in the apostasy, they would give heed to doctrines respecting demons, or to doctrines which demons taught, cannot, it seems to me, be determined with certainty. If the previous phrase, however, means that they would embrace doctrines taught by evil spirits, it can hardly be supposed that the apostle would immediately repeat the same idea in another form; and then the sense would be, that one characteristic of the time referred to would be the prevalent teaching respecting demons. They would give heed to, or embrace, some special views respecting demons.""
Seeing that this teaching of demons being "in" Christians and need "casting out" has not been a part of The Church's teaching until just this last generation - I'd say Albert Barnes nailed it on this translation.
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times
some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits,
and doctrines 'regarding' devils
Since one of the first books I read as a baby Christian was the Original "Pigs in The Parlor" and others like it and have a feel for When this teaching began - I do believe it applies here, that this is one of the teachings that Paul actually "prophesied" would come into our midst in "the latter times."
That book and the others like it have and will definitely bury people.
The reason their percentage of full freedom is so low is because those who receive this teaching remain ever Anti-Scripture about what Christ did on the Cross.
Anyone coming against what Christ has done on that Cross will have a very difficult time getting through the remainder of the "latter times" and will see judgment and great fear in those days, according to The Word of GOD.
Only "Truth" will set anyone Free.
This teaching is not His Truth - therefore it is sinking sand and most especially in the days that are ahead of us.
Christ's work has been mocked by these authors and Satan has been elevated to a position that Jesus would never permit.
If sin and heresy are both "choices" and we see people that we truly care about excusing both by enlisting Satan - what do we do? Can we just walk away from those we care about and leave them to destructive beliefs? Do we stop caring?
