We here at DefCon (as well as our brothers and sisters at other sites, such as Ken Silva and Ingrid Schlueter) use the written Word of God as the rule and basis for everything we believe about God and how one is to worship Him. For that, we are constantly accused of being “Pharisees” by those who would lead the Body of Christ away from the clear teachings of Scripture, and into areas which are questionable (at best) and/or heretical (at worst).

Well, here’s my question–what exactly does it mean to be a “Pharisee”? Are we justly accused as Pharisees by the Seeker-Driven™/Purpose-Driven™, “Let’s all just get along in unity” church-goer who does not dare speak for fear that it may offend someone? Or is there a more accurate description of a Pharisee? Let us examine the issue.(source)

In a very few years the miraculous ministry of Rev. Leroy Jenkins has become widely known in the continental United States and many foreign countries. At present his evangelistic crusades are sweeping the nation and his outstanding gifts of Divine Healing and Word of Knowledge are seemingly without equal since the days of the Apostles.” Leroy Jenkins (source)

This false prophet hits close to home with me because my father was greatly affected by him in the 1960’s. My grandmother used to tell me when I was a child how Leroy would pay people to perform for him during tent meetings. My father worked with him and helped with his tent meetings during his early years. My family is very familiar with this con-artist. Like all faith healers, Leroy is a fraud who only cares about money.

It’s sad that so many people are deceived by men like Leroy Jenkins. These men can bring in thousands upon thousands of people per service by giving them false hopes and introducing them to a false messiah.

And yes, I am biased toward Leroy Jenkins because I have seen on a first-hand basis the power a false prophet has over those he influences. I praise God that He saved my father a few years ago by delivering him, through the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, from the false gospel Leroy gave him in the 1960’s.

Today, many of my family members are still caught up in the charismatic movement. I pray for them (Leroy included) and long for the day the Lord delivers them the way He delivered my father. I know this post is a bit personal, but I wanted to share it with my readers. I just wanted to use my father as an example of how the Lord can deliver us from the darkest of deceptions.(Matthew 19:25-26)
