View Full Version : Shepherd's Chapel

I have heard people talk about Shepherd's Chapel on TV and its pastor, "Arnold Murray." I've done a little reading on some of his views but today I actually watched.

Well, in the 20 or so minutes I watched I heard some teaching on 8-day creation (God rested, then created his elect race) and I heard that not all Jesus saves will be in heaven.

Has anyone had to deal with this ministry or teachings similar?

Murray is a false teacher, a heretic, and leads a cult. I am not alone in saying this. I have good friends with a relative caught up in Murray's crazy teachings.

He denies the Trinity and is a modalist.

He also teaches that the Anglo-Saxons are the chosen race.

He teaches the serpent seed doctrine -- that Satan had relations with Eve and she gave birth to Cain, who is the offspring of Satan.

One time I saw him show what looked like a giant footprint in stone. He said it came from an angel or something like that. The man is goofy but his teachings are spiritual poison.

Please check out these articles before you listen to him anymore. Frankly, I would consider it a waste of time to listen to him.

I just went to a discussion board for this group. Their issues make even the most extreme disagreements here on the BB pale in comparision. Wow---it is just too strange to believe. What is said is the blind followers of Murray who defend this apostate.

He also believes that the unsaved person is not in the Lake of Fire, but is annihilated by God.

I remember seeing him on TV where he stated that the mark of the beast was really only in your mind, clearly contrary to the word of God where it says the mark could be ON your forehead or ON your hand.

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine you have learned; and avoid them. Romans. 16:17

Among the many problems with Sheperd's Chapel is that they appear to suggest that their TV program can be a church. Someone following Murray is not only likely to send their tithes to him, but to withdraw from any local church in leu or wathing the program.
