Please give me your insight on Dr. David Jeremiah and Jentzen Franklin

Postby Jody » Tue Aug 04, 2015 10:37 am



(This is an archived correspondence at The Path of Truth. We have sent notification to the correspondent.)

I just recently signed up partnership with Dr. David Jeremiah Turning Point.

I feel like I don't know who is right or wrong now. A lot of people on your list I listen to and are partners with but I didn't notice this name.

Also I didn't see Pat Robinson 700 club or Jentiezen Franklin. Please give me your insight on these. I feel like I have been led astray. Thank you and God Bless you. Jody

Hi Jody,

Right off the bat one can tell that David Jeremiah is a false teacher because he calls himself “Dr.” This, from his website bio (http://www.davidjeremiah.org/site/about/biography.aspx) says:

As Dr. Jeremiah was sensitive to God's leading in his life, he followed in his father's footsteps. In 1963, Dr. Jeremiah received a Bachelor of Arts from Cedarville College. In that same year, Dr. Jeremiah married his college sweetheart, Donna Thompson who also was attending Cedarville College as a business major. He went on to earn a Masters degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1967. He completed additional graduate work at Grace Seminary and was granted the Doctor of Divinity degree from Cedarville College in 1981.

Here's what we just posted about another false teacher calling himself “Dr.” All of this applies to David Jeremiah:

In response to someone who wrote us, I viewed http://bilezikian.com/gbilezikian/publications.html. Dr. Gilbert Bilezikian is credited with being a spiritual architect of the first modern megachurch, Willow Creek Community. As with thousands of other false teachers, his site is plastered with the sure marks of dead religious works, the works of men - that which men savor, anti-Christ in every respect. Though he presumes to be serving God and God's interests, Bilezikian is a prince serving under the prince of this world and both will be cast into the Lake of Fire.

Here are some of the marks that expose him as an enemy of the cross of Christ:

He titles himself “Doctor.” Nowhere do you find any such titles among the apostles, prophets, or saints of the Lord. Even Jesus Christ didn't title Himself, though He plainly taught that He alone was our Teacher and Master or Lord. But Bilezikian highly values the titles, recognition, adulations, commendations, and promotions of men. This immediately identifies him as anti-Christ and an enemy of the congregation of Christ.

Dr. Bilezikian has his degrees, his educational credentials, boastfully presented and specified. Therefore, he proudly smears his site with dung, that which the apostle Paul abhorred when Jesus Christ made Himself known to him. Declares Paul of his former worldly pedigree, accomplishments, and accreditations:

“But whatever things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. But no, rather, I also count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for Whose sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them to be dung, so that I may win Christ…” (Philippians 3:7-8 MKJV).

Strong's Concordance defines the word “dung” as what is “thrown to the dogs,” that is, refuse (G4657). Gentiles are known in the Scriptures and referred to by the Lord as dogs. The things Dr. Bilezikian presents, the dogs voraciously consume. Dogs are impressed with and savor feces. They will consume their own vomit; should it be at all strange they would love what Bilezikian tosses to them for their dining pleasure instead of the Bread from Heaven?

“Get behind me, Satan: you art an offence to Me: for you savor not the things that be of God, but those that be of men” (Matthew 16:23 KJV).

Why does Gilbert Bilezikian call himself “Doctor”? Why does he show off his learning in the institutions of this world that are at enmity with Jesus Christ, which worship Him in vain with their lips? Are these things not matters of the lust of the eyes and of the flesh and the pride of life? What else can they possibly be?

1 John 2:15-17 MKJV
(15) Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him,
(16) because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
(17) And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever.

“Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God” (John 12:42-43 KJV).

Dr. Bilezikian is an intellectual, not a spiritual, man. He is not born again. He is a man of men, not a man of God:

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can it be. So then they who are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:7-8 MKJV).

Beware of this man's doctrine…. Victor



Read the following for more deadly signs and teachings of the many false teachers in this evil day, which the Lord likened to Noah's.

The True Marks of a Cult
Diabolical Doctrines

How many true teachers were there in Noah's day? These writings and others on our site will help you see for yourself what men like Pat Robertson and Jentezen Franklin are about, if you believe the Word of God. It's all about Him, Jody.

Something on Jentezen Franklin, for example: See Five Powerful Prayers to Pray (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4c2oe9-1mVs). It begins with a commercial for a women's conference, Boots on the Ground. Would you find any man of God in Scripture promoting female flesh and appealing by the wicked, lustful and proud spirit of the world? Come on!

Those who witness such things and still wonder if that ministry is of God are foolish and blind indeed, still dead in their sins, guaranteed! Repent! Those women should be donning sackcloth and ashes, not fashion clothing exposing flesh. Yes, these are as the days of Noah; no doubt about it.

If you are going to have anything to do with the Lord Jesus Christ, you are going to have to die, not give yourself over to the lusts of your flesh.

1 John 2:15-17 MKJV
(15) Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him,
(16) because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
(17) And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever.

“We know that we are of God, and all the world lies in evil” (1 John 5:19 MKJV).

Read Here Is the Way It Is.

When God first drew me to the Son, Jody, I was receiving the truth from everywhere, but I wasn't joining myself to anyone and anything that wasn't wholly after the Truth (Jesus Christ). Are you after a place of security in this world or do you want the Whole Truth and nothing but the Truth?

Hebrews 11:14-16 ESV
(14) For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.
(15) If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return.
(16) But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared for them a city.
