    Many of you on here like to attack preachers and pastors and you have only heard a few of their messages. I listened to many of Jack Hyles messages and I had my disagreements with him but you never hear me going on a fourm
    making attacks. I went to his office and said it to his face. I got tossed out but I said it to his face now on some fourm or otherwise. I have listened to many preachers and I don’t agree with them all but I don’t spend my time cutting them on a forum. God is their judge. You need to pray for them and if you are a pastor you can warn your flock if you truly have the facts. Most of you don’t because you haven’t heard but a few of the messages of those you attack.

    Good day

    Advice that we not censure preachers without the facts is timely and appropriate. The proper response, then, is not to say or do nothing, but to have the facts first. Those who teach false doctrine publicly are candidates for public rebuke. The teaching and examples of the New Testament demonstrate that faithful stewardship includes exposing error.

    Jesus exposed the errors of the religious teachers and leaders of his day. The Gospel of Matthew records both John the Baptist and Jesus calling the Pharisees a “generation of vipers” and denouncing their errors (Matthew 3:7; Matthew 12:34).

    Paul denounced false faith and faulty practice, even naming names. He identified Hymenaeus and Philetus as erring from the truth and falsely teaching about the resurrection (2 Timothy 2:17-18). He called out Demas for loving the world and deserting the faith (2 Timothy 4:10). Alexander the coppersmith withstood the truth. Paul named him and warned Timothy about him (2 Timothy 4:14-15). John pointed out Diotrephes as one who loved preeminence and withstood him (3 John 1:9).

    The Lord, through John’s writing, commended the church at Ephesus for judging certain false apostles and identifying them as liars (Revelation 2:2). Paul advised the Thessalonians to withdraw from those walking disorderly rather than walking after the tradition they had been taught (2 Thessalonians 3:6). If a teacher falsifies the gospel, Paul goes so far to say of such an one, “let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8-9).

    Do you think that the Church should pubically denounce those heretics in the word of faith that are teaching/preaching heresy on a daily basis?
