Stay Away From Andrew Wommack and His Book, “A Better Way to Pray.”

“A Better Way to Pray” by Andrew Wommack

Right off the bat, we have presuppositional problems.  Here is a quote from the introduction,

“Are you ready for your prayer life to improve? Would you like to learn how to pray more accurately and receive God’s answers more quickly? If so, you’re reading the right book!”  

There is no way our prayers can be any more or less effective, if we are in Christ, the Holy Spirit is interceding for us.  The will of the Father will always be done.  The efficacy of our prayers does not lie within our attitudes or abilities.  In fact it is our inability that should glorify God.  He uses weak little creatures like us to accomplish what He has ordained and decreed.  When we see our prayers being answered it is because we are aligning our wills with His.  When we don’t see the answers we were hoping for, it is because we are sinfully praying from the flesh for what we want over what He wants.  We all know that what He wants is good and is for our good, even if it means our deaths.  Yes, even our deaths can be part of God’s good purposes.  Just because we cannot see the effect of something that happens in the future doesn’t mean that the seemingly bad thing that happened is not God’s will.  We just assume so much about our own importance.  The focus of the Christian faith isn’t us or what we want!  The focus is the glory of God, and what He wills.  After all aren’t we supposed to lose our wills and be conformed to the word and will of Christ?  We cannot pray His will away, or pray Him into doing something we want Him to do from our carnal fallen wills.  

Read what God says in His word.  

“Romans 8:26-39 (NASB) 26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
31  What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was  raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written,
“For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
WE were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Yet another laughable notion from the introduction,

“But let me ask you this: If the way you are praying isn’t getting good results, why then would you resist change in this area? “  

I wonder what the magic formula must be?

 

His righteousness imputed to us is what makes our entering into prayer acceptable to God.  Without that and the Holy Spirit, we would still need a High Priest.

Finally we get to Chapter 1 to read this gem,

“In 1969, I heard a wrong teaching that Satan was “God’s messenger boy.” It said that the devil can only do what the Lord allows, and therefore, God uses him to work good in our lives. That’s totally wrong, but I didn’t know it at the time. I brought this teaching back to my girlfriend and she bought into it completely.”

First off, satan is a creature.  He was created by God as Lucifer.  He sinned, was cast out of Heaven to Earth, and is now satan.  He can’t do anything without God allowing it.  If you remember from reading Job, he had to ask permission from God to torment Job.  All creatures can only do what God allows.  If God wants to stop you from doing something, He can simply stop you.  God is sovereign.

Then he goes on to show allegedly the terrible outcome of believing in the sovereignty of God, and the fact that satan is a created subject of our Lord.  I don’t know if his story is true or not.  Even if it is, and even if they died because of their prayers, all it proves is that it was their time to die.  Nobody dies without God ordaining it.  Not even a sparrow dies without God ordaining it.  Of course there are martyrs all throughout history who have died horrible deaths.  These deaths have been exclamations of their lives of faith.

I doubt his stories about the boy from school, “coming down with leukemia the next day” are true.  We don’t pray to satan, and satan doesn’t answer our prayers.  Satan has no ability to read our minds and hear prayers from us.  Satan doesn’t control when we die.  God does.  Is satan kills someone it is because God has ordained that fashion of death for them.  If the stories about two young people are true, then God had ordained for them to die in just the way that they died.

So his son was raised from the dead, because his relationship with God, and how he prayed.  When my father died and stayed dead, when my friend’s 2 year old died and stayed dead, it was our fault because we don’t pray right, or have the same communion with God?  What a load of garbage.  Andrew Wommack needs to stop teaching and repent.

Here’s a good one, “The heart attitude behind your prayer interests God much more than the actual words you say. Just because you spend an hour, or more, in what you call“prayer” doesn’t mean you’re accomplishing anything. If your attitude is wrong, you’re praying wrong!”

Guess what… we are all praying wrong.  None of us can pray a prayer on our own that is acceptable to God. The Holy Spirit makes our prayers acceptable to God along with the justifying work of Jesus.

Apparently Wommack teaches universal or general atonement.  Here it is from his own book,

“As far as God’s concerned, the sins of the entire world have already been forgiven. The Lamb’s perfect sacrifice dealt decisively with the past, present, and future sins of every believer and nonbeliever alike. This doesn’t mean that all are just “automatically” saved (or healed). All individuals must receive for themselves by faith what Jesus Christ has already provided in order to actually benefit from it. A gift given isn’t fully yours until it’s received!”

Did you catch that?  Apparently Jesus justified everyone’s sins with the Father.  Apparently He atoned for everyone.  So I guess Jesus’ work was not perfect or sufficient.  I guess it was wasted on those who would not repent.  Here is the problem with claiming He made salvation available for everyone, it means that all sin has already been paid for, so then even if a person doesn’t repent and believe in Christ, their sin is already atoned for.  That means they have no guilt before God.  There is no need for anyone to accept salvation or the gift as he puts it.  It is a ridiculous statement.  This is what happens when you let bad theology, emotions, and tradition dictate your faith.

It is apparent that Wommack has used an Arminian highlighter (black sharpie) to highlight/redact all of the verses about predestination and election.  The lady he mentions on page 7 who was unsure if she was saved or not could have been helped by good theology, not Wommack’s hodge podge, grab bag, word of faith nonsense.  If the lady had not been granted saving faith and repentance, then no matter how much she intellectually affirms the gospel, she will not be saved.  Being saved requires God to grant you true repentance, and faith along with the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.  He only does this for His elect, whom He has predestined from before the creation of the world.

And yet more nonsense, “What if someone in a wheelchair came forward for healing during a service? If I prayed and didn’t see him rise out of the wheelchair immediately, I could ask the audience, “How many of you will stand in faith together with me? Let’s fast and pray in agreement, not letting go of God until He heals this person.” I bet I could persuade 90 percent of the people to go along with that! Yet God’s Word clearly proclaims, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him” (Col. 2:6). In the same way you appropriate and walk in forgiveness of sin, you receive healing, deliverance, prosperity, and everything else! If begging God to save the lady in the first scenario is inappropriate, then doing so for healing or anything else in the Christian life is absolutely wrong too! Christ already made full provision for the abundant life through His atonement. It’s now not up to Him to do, but you to receive what He’s done!”  

How about the Christians of the early Church or the middle east right now?  The martyrs of the Church live an abundant life in Christ, even in their poverty and deaths.  Christ talked more about suffering for the faith than living in comfort and health.  Matter of fact, those are signs you are doing it wrong.

And more idiocy, “Sometimes Christians approach God, praying, “I know You can heal me, but You haven’t done it yet. Therefore, I want to learn how to make You heal me.” This is rank unbelief! They don’t believe that He’s already done it and they think they can make Him do it.Wrong! Such unbelief explains why more people aren’t experiencing healing.”  

So how about Christians who suffer long lingering deaths?  You can pray for life and health if you want, but you should be praying for God’s will to be done, and for Him to be glorified, after all isn’t that what Christ did before the crucifixion?  Luke 22:42, “saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.””

We haven’t even made it to the 2nd chapter of this disservice to Christ, and twisting of His word to bilk people out of money and true peace.  

“In our Bible schools and teaching seminars, we confidently instruct people not to “pray” for the sick, but to heal them. Jesus commanded us in Matthew 10:8 to “heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, [and] cast out devils.”There’s a huge difference between healing the sick and just praying for them!”  

Matthew 10:8 is not an instruction to the Church.  It is instruction to the Apostles during the foundation of the Church.  The Apostles who were specifically personally appointed to their office by the incarnate Christ during His earthly ministry were to fulfill Matthew 10:8.  Bad hermeneutics lead to Wommack’s horrible interpretation.  The wages of sin is death.  We are all under the curse of original sin.  We all will die.  There is not a single person alive today who will not die unless the Lord returns first.

And more false teachings,

“Jesus Christ completed everything necessary to save and heal every person. You believed and received salvation.  Healing comes the exact same way!  It shouldn’t be any harder to receive your healing since He provided it at the same time as forgiveness for your sin. Neither does it take any more faith to raise someone from the dead than to see them born again!”

If this is the case, then Wommack and his cronies should all never die, and not wear glasses, get sick, or ever go to the doctor.  They need to go to each nursing home and raise all of the old people from the dead when they die.  This is just ludicrous and idiotic.  Anyone who believes this tripe is being deceived.  They join the health and wealth false gospel with their soteriology.  Do you see the problems here?   

You had to know this would show up sometime,

“As a citizen of the kingdom of darkness, the enemy legitimately dominated your life. At the time of your salvation, you hadn’t been fasting, praying, studying the Word, attending church, paying tithes, or living a holy life.”

Never mind that we are not Jews, we are not under the ceremonial law, and we have the instruction to prayerfully consider and give with a cheerful heart.  There is no set tithe for Christians.

Here Wommack perverts the gospel,

“The good “news” of the gospel is that God has already forgiven you. Why would you choose to go to hell with your sins forgiven?”  

with this I am done.  I can’t take anymore false teachings.  I’m not even out of the 1st chapter of this mess.  The good news of the gospel my friends is that you and I are filthy, wretched sinners, who like the people God killed during the flood, deserve death and hell for all eternity, but God being rich in mercy, and grace, provided a way for us to be saved in the work of Jesus on the cross.  While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Christ took on our guilt.  He took the punishment we deserve as sinners, and when He finished suffering the punishment for every sinner who would repent from sin and believe in His works on the cross, Jesus died, was buried, and resurrected on the third day.  He now sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us.  The Holy Spirit regenerates the elect and according to the Father’s will the elect will repent and believe in the work of Christ.  They are saved and cannot be lost.  The Holy Spirit indwells them and is their seal for redemption.  Here is another link to why you should stay away.

    Interesting post. I have been following ANdrew Wommack for years now and I can honestly say that for the first time in my entire life I m getting answers to prayers, living in faith and feeling the absolute love of God in my life. Sorry you see it as a false teaching, you missing out!

    1. Experience is no substitute for truth. The Bible says, “Jeremiah 17:9 (NASB) 9 “The heart is more deceitful than all else
      And is desperately sick;

      If the Bible contradicts your experiences then they are invalid. Be careful to rightly divide the word of God. Wommack is a false teacher. Follow his teachings at your own peril.

      Absolutely and stunningly correct! The excellent teaching of Andrew Womack far exceed the crybabies who style themselves as “defenders”. I believe it was king Lear who said of their persecution ‘horrible, Oh horrible…MOST HORRIBLE! Where in the world does these fake defenders come from, certainly not from God. My take is because of envy these fakers are ‘crying wolf’. Their heart is in the gutter because Womack teaches TRUTH. Anti Womack criybabies has blinded themselves because of their persecution, they’re blind with rage and jealousy.

    If you can’t see that Andrew Wommack is one of the very few TRUE men of God, then your discerner isn’t working. And if you can’t understand that what Andrew teaches lines up perfectly with the Bible, then, no offense but, you lack the ability to understand the Bible in context nor do you know how to rightly divide the word. Perhaps if you humbled yourself by sitting under Andrew’s very sound teachings for a while, you would learn.

    I assume you do know that God doesn’t look too kindly on someone who attacks a man God himself has annointed, right? If I were you, I would repent and ask for forgiveness.

        Hi Bob, this is good, this conversation. Can you please tell me exactly why he is a heretic? The reason that I am asking is that for many years I point blank refused to listen to him until one day I got so sick and tired and not been heard or been able to understand. I got to a point where I was so low thoughts of my life been worthless where in my mind. I do not have all the answers still, however my prayer answers have dramatically improved. I learnt with A.W the very hard way, and that is most people completely misquote him or lump him in with other Word-Faith people when in fact he truly is not much like them in many way, he is one of those guys that you have to listen to quite abit to get what he is actually saying. I am interested as if you are a believer we are brothers, I can see nothing but good having this conversation with you…

      Andrew Wommack easily surpasses those who teach against the healing power of God. They teach a preferable doctrine of acceptance of sickness and disease, eagerly. These anti teachers of the healing power of God is a disgrace. They act as if Jesus didn’t heal not one single soul. They talk like evolutionist and atheists wholesale, as if Jesus never came to save the lost soul.

There is not a Biblically consistent refutation of orthodox doctrine. Since Wommack is teaching heresy, you cannot justify his teachings with the Bible in any accurate and true way. You could always take verses out of context and misapply them. That is known as eisegesis and is common among teachers of false doctrines.

        Hi.
        Thank you for the reply, it is appreciated. About your website, yes it is yours but you did publish the article, what I was saying is that I replied to the entire article but when I tried to put it in it shifted all the phrases around so it was all over the place, none the less, I have read the articles you have sent me as well as some other stuff.
        I actually am concerned with a few things though that I wish for you to give me answers for. The first thing is Gods sovereignty, I want to state at this point I believe fully that God has the right to do whatever he pleases, no one can oppose his will , he is omnipotent and all powerful. My question is what is our free will? Do we have free will?
        You see I will give an example, if I was married and my wife had an affair, if we don’t have free will, does that mean I had no choice in marrying her and that she had no choice in having the affair? So in essence I cannot reconcile myself with the fact that God would ever be so cruel as to do that to someone he “loves” according to the bible. That would also mean that my ex had no choice in having the affair so then cannot be guilty of sin?
        That also applies to all the cruel and horrific murders, abortions and rapes that go on in the world? Surely God is good, his word says he is?

        These are questions, do not take it as opposition I seriously would like to know how this would work? The reason I ask this is then what difference does it make if I go out and blow my brains out…would that be Gods will? I mean seriously what would be the point of even trying, why does he say sin no more, turn away from all these bad things, renew your mind?

        Sorry but my brain cannot fathom this out, to me that is a cruel and horrid God, if it is true then it is no wonder no one would ever want to be christian….

      4. Romans 9 (NASB) ​1  I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit, 2 that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh, 4 who are Israelites, to whom belongs the adoption as sons, and the glory and the covenants and the giving of the Law and the temple service and the promises, 5 whose are the fathers, and from whom is the Christ according to the flesh, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.
        6 But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel; 7 nor are they all children because they are Abraham’s descendants, but: “ through Isaac your descendants will be named.” 8 That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants. 9 For this is the word of promise: “At this time I will come, and Sarah shall have a son.” 10  And not only this, but there was Rebekah also, when she had conceived twins by one man, our father Isaac; 11 for though the twins were not yet born and had not done anything good or bad, so that God’s purpose according to His choice would stand, not because of works but because of Him who calls, 12 it was said to her, “The older will serve the younger.” 13 Just as it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”
        14  What shall we say then? There is no injustice with God, is there? May it never be! 15 For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” 16 So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I raised you up, to demonstrate My power in you, and that My name might be proclaimed throughout the whole earth.” 18 So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires.
        19  You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?” 20 On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it? 21 Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for common use? 22  What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? 23 And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles. 25 As He says also in Hosea,
        “I will call those who were not My people, ‘My people,’
        And her who was not beloved, ‘beloved.’”
        26 “And it shall be that in the place where it was said to them, ‘you are not My people,’
        There they shall be called sons of the living God.”
        27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “Though the number of the sons of Israel be like the sand of the sea, it is the remnant that will be saved; 28  for the Lord will execute His word on the earth, thoroughly and quickly.” 29 And just as Isaiah foretold,
        “Unless the Lord of Sabaoth had left to us A posterity,
        WE would have become like Sodom, and would have resembled Gomorrah.”
        30  What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even the righteousness which is by faith; 31 but Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not arrive at that law. 32 Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as though it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone, 33 just as it is written,
        “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense,
        And he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.”

        I think in the future if I need to reply, I will do it all in one as we have several threads going. I am not sure on this I mean in the bible Jacob payed a huge amount of effort to be blessed by his father, even tricking Esau. There was an instance in the bible where a guy was dying and asked his son to knock and he knocked three times and that symbolized the amount of defeats. God asked Moses why he was looking to him and told him to stretch out his hand?

        I am seriously here to learn your take on this, Jesus said speak to the mountain ? I cannot fathom that it could be witchcraft because you do absolutely nothing without Jesus and it is even more vital that it is Gods will. I mean if you wake up everyday and speak Psalms 91 over your life, that is what God has said , not us, we are merely repeating or speaking what God has said or is his will (Clear will, not some personal will) over your life?

        As I said I am here to honestly learn you take, who knows perhaps I may even learn something.

      Hi thank you once again for your reply.
      I am at this moment doing massive amounts of reading , going back to original languages and working in prayer. I know we are both short of time but in all honesty I am not someone to shut out someones viewpoint and therefore and earnestly am seeking the truth and your article and replies has triggered sort of inner question “What if you are right?” thing.

      Specifically what I am battling with ,one question at a time, and ill try be precise are :
      1: Are you saying that God controls absolutely every little detail that is going on in the world, including everything in my life?
      2: If he is, I am kind of struck on trying to find a point to pray, live a holy life, and honestly even to believe in God. This is a statement as i wrote with my wife having an affair and leaving, I am trying to figure out in my brain how he can honestly say he loves me and it is for the better good?
      3: Regards to how the world is going (Not a very positive place), I am trying to understand and comprehend how I should believe or even have faith in God if this is what he wants / ordains?
      4: Lastly I am trying to make sense of why he would say he loves me and yet ordains my life to be such a living hell. I mean am honestly someone who has always loved God as a Father, I just cannot fathom out if you are implying that if I had to go out and blow my head off (Suicide) that it was somehow Gods will or he let me get born go through this only to suffer and end it? I mean if he loves me why would he ordain it, I may as well just do it and get it over and done with after all he cant blame me if it was all ordained by him?

      You see I don’t agree with everything AW says but when it comes down to Gods sovereignty and our position in Christ (IE Praying effectively)it makes sense but basically every single teaching from AW comes down to his view on Gods Sovereignty.

      Apologies but I have been taking your comments with utmost seriousness and it has kind well been “destroying” (Sorry for lack of a better word) to my entire belief and existence.

      Basically all my questions simply come back to one point, If God is sovereign in the sense that he controls or ordains everything, What is the point of anything?

    Whatever you resist will persist. If we are the sheep, why would you suddenly think you are the sheapard? GOD IS IN CONTROL AND DOES NOT NEED YOUR HELP TODAY BOB. PRIDE, EGO AND JEALOUSY ARE WORKS OF THE ENEMY. MAYBE U SHOULD PRAY FOR ANDREW, BLESS HIM & CHANGE ME. YOUR MOTIVE IN ALL OF THIS, IS NOT GOD’S WILL. IF YOU READ THE TRUE WORD, LIKE YOU SAY YOU WOULD KNOW THIS. JESUS WOULD’VE NEVER DONE WHAT YOU HAVE.

    1. Andrew is a heretic. If you defend his teachings then you probably are as well. There are plenty of people who have read this article and agree entirely. Jesus called them whited sepulchers full of dead men’s bones. He used some pretty strong language. Peter warned about wolves in the Church. Andrew is a word of faith heretic. He is dangerous to listen to. He would have you pray your cancer away like he claims to be doing. This is Pastoral malpractice. Rather than attacking your golden calf, why don’t I just ask you to defend his false teachings? Explain to me how it is Biblical to tell someone that they should use their faith to get rid of disease? Don’t you know this is a fallen world under a curse from God? Don’t you know that sickness and death are what we as sinners deserve? If you pray to God and He doesn’t heal you, how does Andrew tell you to handle that? How about just reading your Bible from the start to the finish, in context, without the teachings of W.O.F. heretics like Andrew.

    I went to watch him speak on it in dundallk Ireland at gracé ministries and left filled and
    refreshed. I bought the book and forgot all about it. Had a fall back into addiction and found the book and it helped me focus on God and get back on track.
    You have good points but if it helped me it can help others

    God bless

  8. From the very second i realized you are anti charismatic and against the beliefs of the active gifts,healing ,tongues,etc i stopped listening..If i had accepted disease in my life i would have COPD still..it was God speaking through Andrew Wommack that convinced me to put the action of my Faith to work and believe i was healed and to live as though i had no COPD and believe in sincerity and wholly that i was healed at the Cross..well in three weeks that COPD had disappeared completely, i ahd no symptoms,my seziures had ceased ..and i was abolutely healed as though i’d nevr had the illness to begin with,,that was in 2014 .Andrew als helped me understand that legalism is a widepspread bondage that the enemy uses more than ANYTHING..and i sense that you’re all wrapped up tight in that area…

    1. I noticed you are placing your personal experience in a position over the authority of scripture. I am not a legalist. I don’t think you know what a legalist or an antinomian are. Is it possible you were misdiagnosed? Maybe you didn’t have COPD? Maybe God healed you. It wasn’t anything Wommack did for you, nor was it any of his false teachings. I don’t doubt that God can and does heal people today, just not through faith healers, and false teachers. Regardless of your personal experiences, the Bible is God’s word, and it is true. Wommack is not a true prophet. He is a false teacher, wolf, con-man, and a crook just like Kenneth Copeland, Jesse Duplantis, and Joyce Meyers. Enjoy your heresy if you will. I’ll stick with Biblical truth.

    Bob,

    I recently came across Andrew Wommack after a friend mentioned him to me. Like yourself, I am in the Reformed camp (former Roman Catholic who fell in love with the doctrines of grace) and so I have a high view of God’s sovereignty. I do admit to enjoying much of what Andrew teaches, and I appreciate his demeanor. Honestly, I can listen to him for hours. That said, there are things he teaches that do not sit well with me, primarily concerning what I perceive to be, based on my understanding of the Bible and theology, his imposing limits on the reach and scope of God’s control over all of life, including our physical health. I do believe the Atonement includes physical healing although it is chiefly about spiritual healing (as to the former, rf. Matt 8:16-17), but I think Andrew takes the emphasis on healing off of God’s gracious response to prayer and places it on the spoken faith of the sick (or the faith healer). While I said I am Reformed, I also believe the spiritual gifts did not end with the close of the canon or with the death of John the Apostle. If there is such thing as a charismatic Calvinist, I am probably close. Yes, I have some concerns with Andrew but I would not disparage him as not being a brother. He is, after all, still solid on every major orthodox doctrine concerning the Person of Christ. Finally, a comment-suggestion offered in love: in some of your posts here you come across as harsh and attacking of others who may not possess your ability to write eloquently or clearly. Your tone might cause a non-believer to point fingers at how Christians can be unkind even to each other. Thank you.

    1. About my tone, noted. About Wommack’s theology, there is way more wrong with it than what is right. Check out what he believes about your power to be healthy and work miracles based on being a Christian. He is definitely in the health and wealth camp of false gospel. He is smooth when it comes to his country charm, but don’t get sucked in by it.
