Taken Captive By False Teachers & False Doctrines – 10 Signs | Rick Becker

Screen Shot 2019-07-11 at 2.17.52 PM

I can’t think of anything that the Church, the body of Christ, needs more today, than the ability to discern what is of God and what is not of God. I have already written and posted many articles on the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement within this blog and should you wish to view them, you can do so by selecting “New Apostolic Reformation” under the Post Categories option on right side of my main page. The influence this movement is having on Christianity is astounding and that is not an understatement. The influence of this movement is literally just about everywhere. If you’re not familiar with the NAR movement, you should be.

This particular repost is from a website called Famine In The Land which originates out of South Africa. This post was authored by Rick Becker and was originally posted on 7 March 2019


We’re closer to the end. Some would have us believe the greatest revival the world has ever seen is upon us, but scripture teaches the opposite. There will be false anointed ones, a departure from the faith, apostasy, and doctrines of demons will deceive many within the visible church. Those within the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) ignore what scripture teaches, they are hoping to be activated by a super apostle and be a part of a new breed of revivalist that will walk through walls, raise the dead, and conquer the seven spheres of society. These deluded folk have not been activated, but captivated by false teachers and false doctrines: “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8
Under the guise of fresh revelation, anointings, impartations, new ways to hear God and walk in the supernatural, false teachers of the NAR come to steal, kill, and destroy. But it’s not just the NAR that is leading people into deception, there are other movements and denominations in the visible church that are responsible for seducing people into error. The health and wealth gospel, word of faith heresy, false philosophies, traditions, new age doctrines, and mysticism have captivated millions in the visible church. In this post I offer ten signs that will help identify those who have been captivated by false teachers and false doctrines.

  2. Thank you for sharing this. I used to think it was bad here in the US, but when I was in Zimbabwe 2 years ago, I was shocked at how pervasive this teaching had become…and at what level of craziness it had reached! The Christians in Africa are being preyed upon by these charlatans. Only the faithful, consistent, expository preaching and teaching of the Word of God will make a difference. I pray God will bring a revival of biblical doctrine in Zimbabwe, South Africa, and in all other places where false teachers are deceiving the church.
