    The pastor of a California church has been arrested on charges of kidnapping and molestation that involved a young teen girl from his congregation almost a decade ago. Victor Manuel Hernandez-Pineda, 53, the pastor at Iglesia Pentecostes Movimiento De Gloria, was arrested on Friday (Dec. 1) in the wake of a police investigation by the Richmond Police that began on November 9. He was arrested on suspicion of three counts of kidnapping and four counts of molesting a girl under the age of 14. The victim of the abuse, Karen Cifuentes, described what happened to ABC 7 in San Francisco....

    Anne Latour is a charismatic ministry leader perhaps best known for traveling the country with Sean Feucht & the Let Us Worship Team and operating as their ‘Spiritual Lawyer.’ Her schtick is doing “intercession in the Courts of Heaven,” something she also teaches and offers courses on with her ministry, Advocates of Heaven. More specifically, she teaches that: We all have experienced soul fragmentation at some point in our life – trauma creates a split in our soul – these are called protectors. Those soul parts become our protectors, but they can end up sabotaging our very own destiny. Inner...

    When arch-heretic Kenneth Copeland is not giving false prophecies about COVID being destroyed, throwing someone in a wheelchair to the floor, casting away bald spots in Jesus name, or even running his own bizzaro Bible college, the world’s richest prosperity preacher in America can be frequently found making up stuff about Jesus and justifying his personal theological idiosyncrasies in order to increase his net worth, this time with a viral video going around showing him drinking his own blood in some bizarre communion rite. While there is a sense in which Copeland, who is surely demon-possessed, routinely feasts on the...

    The Roys Report ^ | November 13, 2023 | Rebecca Hopkins
    A Florida church has removed its youth pastor, who pleaded guilty last year to exposing himself, shortly after The Roys Report (TRR) began inquiring about the man’s employment. Austin W. Plappert, 26, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of exposing his sexual organs in September 2022, Volusia County court records show. A police report obtained by TRR also reveals a similar incident in 2020. In late October 2023, Plappert and his wife were employed as youth directors at Pentecostals of Deland (POD) near Daytona Beach, according to an archived screenshot of the church’s website. On Oct. 24, TRR first reached...

    Between now and the time the preacher stands at the pulpit this Sunday and delivers his message, around 17,000 babies in the United States alone will have been murdered in the womb. That’s nearly 2,400 every day. Ninety-eight babies every hour. About one baby every twelve seconds. Innocent human beings are dismembered, poisoned, crushed, harvested for organs, put in trash cans, and disposed of in the name of “women’s rights” and “the right to choose.” This happens day after day, week after week, and the church largely remains silent. The most forgotten, marginalized human beings today are the preborn. Their...

    Charismatic prophet Todd Bentley, one of the scant few hucksters in the whole of Christianity that Dr. Michael Brown has ever bothered to condemn (and that only slightly), is up to no good again—the result of a string of angelic encounters and personal vision. Despite his ministry bringing in over a million dollars a year, he’s up for manifesting some more mammon, offering one-on-one mentoring through a Facebook Messenger phone call for $150 a pop. (Super clickbait title, but we reserve the right to include one every now and then.) According to the introductory email, they explain that “During this...
  • Holy Spirit or Dopamine Trip? Emotional Manipulation in Charismatic “Worship”

    Disntr ^ | October 5, 2023 | staff
    We’ve witnessed in recent years a surge of hyper-emotional events masquerading as expressions of genuine Christian faith. These gatherings, such as the Passion Conference, Hillsong concerts, and other events connected to the charismatic, word of faith, and prosperity gospel movements, claim to be fueled by the Holy Spirit. Yet, the truth of the matter is, what’s happening at these events is far removed from Biblical worship. The atmosphere at these events is emotionally charged—highly orchestrated music, impassioned speakers, and provocative visuals often lead participants to believe they are experiencing the Holy Spirit. However, what they’re actually experiencing is emotional manipulation,...

    Christian Post ^ | September 29, 2023 | Leonardo Blair
    At least three Assemblies of God pastors have called on denominational leaders to repent and, where appropriate, resign after organizers of the Chi Alpha Campus Ministries were accused of allowing Daniel Savala, a 67-year-old itinerant minister and convicted sex offender, to prey on scores of young males for more than two decades. The Assemblies of God claimed on Friday, however, that it had warned local Chi Alpha leaders about Savala and is already taking steps to dismiss leaders who failed to protect participants in the ministry as they continue to investigate the scandal. The latest call for accountability has come...

    Self-proclaimed “prophet” and “seer”, Micah Turnbo—who is straight out of the heretical IHOPKC and the Kansas City Prophets movement—has amassed a huge following on social media, but his spectacle is more theatrical than theological. Brandishing titles like “Seer Prophet” and “Pastor of Prophetic Ministry” at Vineyard Church Northwest in Cincinnati, Ohio, Turnbo might seem convincing to those who simply want their ears tickled. However, for those deeply rooted biblical convictions, Turnbo’s claims ring hollow. Turnbo’s background, according to his bio, includes growing up in a so-called “prophetic” family and attending schools like Cincinnati Christian University and International House of Prayer....

    An autistic 8-year-old boy died while wrapped in sheets during a prayer service held to exorcise the evil spirits that church members blamed for his condition. The minister who performed the service was arrested in connection with the death, which occurred Friday night at a church in a run-down strip mall. The mother had been taking her son to Faith Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith three times a week for the last three weeks in hopes of curing his autism, said Bishop David Hemphill Sr. It was after more than an hour of prayer that a parishioner noticed the...

    Pastor Rick Morrow of Beulah Church in Richland, MO, is under fire for claiming that that children with autism are demon-possessed, as God does not and would not make them that way, leaving only Satan the culprit for their condition. Morrow told his congregation during a Q & A session about ‘deliverance’: This is very crucial. If someone has a physical infirmity and you cast that demon out, you might have to pray for some things to be fixed. Let’s talk about one. Let’s talk about autism. I know a minister who has seen lots of kids that are autistic...

    In the ever-expanding realm of self-proclaimed Christian leaders, few figures are as bewildering as Katie Souza. Armed with dubious teachings that dance on the fringes of Christian orthodoxy, she recently added to her repertoire of controversy by prophesying about none other than the Loch Ness Monster. While the Bible instructs us to “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1) and to hold fast to sound doctrine (2 Timothy 4:3), Souza has ventured completely into sensationalism while diverting attention away from the true Gospel message. During her “prophetic message,” Souza claims that she was taken by God out into the ocean to...

    In late October 2022, New Apostolic Reformation prophetess Cindy Jacobs preached at King’s Cathedral Church in Maui, where she prophesied that the pastor and congregants would receive ‘supernatural favor’ in the form of ‘supernatural houses’ and that the testimonials from folks in this church receiving new houses as a result of this favor and blessing ‘would ring out across the world.’ Ten months later, unprecedented wildfires raged across Maui, burning down their church plant and dozens of congregants’ homes and businesses, demonstrating again what a fraud, charlatan, and false prophet Jacobs is. At the time, Jacobs was adamant that the...

More particularly, he’s a prosperity-preaching heretic who routinely claims to raise people from the dead, commit miraculous healings like curing cancer and AIDS, and regrowing lost limbs. He routinely takes trips to heaven when he hangs out with Jesus and God, getting supernatural and direct revelation which he then returns to earth and shares. He describes himself as “The Last Trumpet” and the “custodian of a...

    Kenyan authorities have banned five churches, including that of a pastor accused of inciting more than 400 followers to fast to death, according to a government document made public on Friday. The Associations Registration Office said the license of self-proclaimed pastor Paul Nthenge Mackenzie's Good News International Church had been cancelled on May 19. The self-proclaimed pastor had urged followers of his movement to fast until death in order to "meet Jesus", a case which shocked Kenyans after the discovery of corpses in the Shakahola forest near the coastal town of Malindi. To date, 425 bodies have been found in...

    In 2015, Bethel Church pastor Seth Dahl preached a sermon called ‘An Unexpected Route To Joy.’ In an epic butchery of the gospel and a fundamental misunderstanding of the forgiveness of Christ, Dahl claimed he encountered Jesus in a vision, who then asked him to forgive HIM. At the time of the sermon, Dahl was Bethel Chuch’s children’s pastor whose merchandise was (and is still) carried in their store. He has since left and founded his own group of companies geared around teaching and coaching families and children, including Seth Dahl Ministries, where he offers churches personalized children’s ministry coaching...

Angel, considered a prominent figure in the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement, shamelessly flaunts his private jet, mansion, and luxury goods while promising health, wealth, and miracles to anyone who donates to his ministry. Unsurprisingly, he is endorsed by wolves like Benny Hinn and impastor Jamal Bryant,...
