Avoiding Steven Anderson’s Material – A Plea For Discernment

I am not going to mince words in this post.

Promoting Anderson’s material exposes your Christian friends to his cultish thinking and behavior—which brings disrepute to the name of Christ (see below for documentation).

On prophecy, Steven Anderson in the past has wrongly appropriated the label “prewrath.” He is so far off base to be considered prewrath in any meaningful sense of the term. So I am baffled why any prewrather would ever consider promoting his material, other than ignorance.

I offer a plea for discernment not to quickly promote any Joe Blow who uploads an anti-pretrib video to youtube.

As prewrathers—or more importantly, as God’s people—we should seek to promote sound, biblical teaching, not just anyone who comes along with anti-pretrib views.

I will cite several examples how Anderson brings disrepute upon the name of Christ.

1. Video taping himself burning NIV Bibles on his grill and uploading it to YouTube.

2. His hatred for gays and that he thinks they should be executed.

3. Vulgar preaching.

4. Praying for Obama’s death.

5. Nefarious slander against men of God.

6. Date-Setting the Second Coming of Christ.

7. “Let’s kill gays for AIDS-free Christmas”

8. Denies the Holocaust by twisting history.

 

I can cite more instances of his unregenerate behavior that would make your stomach turn. But I believe I have made my point.

Anderson is a lost, troubler of God’s people who should be avoided — not promoted.

I do not want to be in his shoes on judgment day. He is a woefully self-deceived man.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,  filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” (Phil 1:9–11)
