    How many of those you listed are alive today? Can you name also those who already departed, but who are being heard on radio programs and through their written works? Mine contains some of those who are in heaven (not in any particular order) but their preaching lives on:


    01. The Lord Jesus - the greatest preacher ever lived!
    02. The Apostle Paul
    03. Charles Haddon Spurgeon
    04. Rodney Gypsy Smith
    05. J. Vernon McGee
    06. Dwight Lymann Moody
    07. Aiden Wilson Tozer
    08. John C. Whitcomb
    09. Lehman Strauss
    10. Ronald E. Showers
    11. James Montgomery Boice
    12. Donald Grey Barnhouse (just to name a few)

    Now to be faithful to the pastors on BBc, the list continues:
    13. Robert (Dr. Bob) Griffin
    14. Thomas Cassidy
    15. Bob Lemmon
    16. Preacher
    17. Pastor Bob
    18. Rev. Relic (left a powerful post on the FFF!)
    19. Pastor Larry
    20. All the pastors on BBc!

    For if their preaching resembles their write-ups, then they would definitely be my favorites! But I trust you understand that this is only a partial list. I could go on, and on, and on…… :D

    Since I've seen a sprinkling of a few of their names, I thought I'd share what Hank Hanegraaff of Christian Research Institute has to say:
    <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR> Concerning the teaching known variously as “positive confession,” the “faith” teaching, and the “prosperity” doctrine, some of the best known American television evangelists subscribe either partly or wholly to this teaching. Its chief representatives today seem to be Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Fred Price, Paul and Jan Crouch, John Avanzini, Benny Hinn, Jesse Duplantis, and Marilyn Hickey, though there are many other evangelists, teachers, and writers promoting the teaching.

    It is CRI’s considered opinion that this teaching, at least in its complete form as expressed by the above people, is at best extremely aberrational and at worse cultic. (We use the term “aberrational” to refer to teaching which is decidedly unbiblical and damaging to authentic Christian faith, but which is not quite so heretical that its adherents must be considered non-Christians.) In the past, CRI has attempted to meet with some of these people and dialogue with them concerning their teachings, but most of them have refused.

    In brief, the teachings of these men may be summarized as follows: God created man in “God’s class,” as “little gods,” with the potential to exercise the “God kind of faith” in calling things into existence and living in opportunity, however, by rebelling against God in the Garden and taking upon ourselves Satan’s nature. To correct this situation, Jesus Christ became a man, died spiritually (thus taking upon Himself Satan’s nature), went to Hell, was “born again,” rose from the dead with God's nature again, and then sent the Holy Spirit so that the Incarnation could be duplicated in believers, thus fulfilling their calling to be little gods. Since we are called to experience this kind of life now, we should be successful in every area of our lives. To be in debt, then, or be sick, or (as is often taught) be left by one’s spouse, and not to have these problems go away by “claiming” God’s promises, shows a lack of faith.

    While certain aspects of the above doctrine may vary from teacher to teacher, the general outline remains the same in each case. Perhaps the above summary will be enough for some readers to convince them that the doctrine of the “faith” teachers is unbiblical. If more details in the way of documentation are required, or if some analysis of the biblical passages used by the “faith” teachers to support their views is needed, these can be found in a variety of materials, many of which are available from CRI.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Hank has written an excellent book entitled "Counterfeit Revival" that I would highly recommend if you have any of the above people on your "favorites" list. God bless.

    Faith:
    Baptist
    My mouth dropped open when two different BB members listed radical charismatics, false teachers, and outright heretics on this thread. I am going out on a limb to question how "baptist" a person could be and have these as their "favorites".

    Possible explanations:
    1. New Christian that hasn't yet developed discernment of evil and error;
    2. Uneducated or unconcerned Christian who doesn't know what a good preacher is;
    3. Not really a "baptist" and posting here where they do not belong;
    4. A prankster pulling a string to get a response.
    5. Something else?

    If not a baptist, I would appreciate if they would not clutter up our Board. If serious, they need to carefully start reading the theology threads to see the error.

    No list of FFF pastors would be complete without two of my personal favorites, Edwards and Chris Connally. They are totally cool.

    BTW,BJ...I really liked your real list of favorite preachers. Their preaching skills, integrity and message have stood the test of time.

    Dear MagicDar,

    I hope you will take Dr. Bob's suggestion to heart and do the research, as you have rightly handled some "rethinking" in the past. Please read the "Counterfeit Revival" book by Hank Hanegraaff (see my previous post). I, for one, am pulling for you to post a revised list after your careful examination of facts. [​IMG]

    God bless!

    Sorry Elizabeth, I must have missed those folks. ;)

    Welsjs, I liked your link to CRI. It is a great book indeed, which Hank Hanegraaff wrote on counterfeit religion. It is a must read for everyone, especially for the babes in Christ. Thanks for posting it. [​IMG]

    Dr. Bob, welcome back! We missed you. How was your outing with the young folks? [​IMG]
