Heretic Kenneth Hagin
Heretic Kenneth Hagin , influenced by an earlier heretic named Kenyon, is most responsible of all Word/Faith heretics, for the encroachment of modern heresy into the Church of the past thirty years beginning in the “Charismatic Movement” of the 1970s. The Church began to drift from the teaching of sound doctrine into the obsession for miracles and dynamic “praise and worship”. As the movement grew, so also the spread of extra-biblical “revelation”. “New revelation” was not always “contrary” to scripture, but simply NOT FOUND in scripture, thereby causing it to be difficult to rebut. As the movement spread and began to drift in different directions, so also, more erroneous doctrine. In the past twenty years, the trend has leaped forward into downright HERESY, even to the point of denying that the “Blood of Christ alone” is sufficient to save. They have created for themselves, and those who follow them, a hodge podge mixture of truth and serious heresy. When confronted by orthodox theologians, they simply retreat to the outer parameters of orthodoxy until the heat is off, then return to the most heretical doctrines of the Christian age. Many walk a thin line between truth and heresy so as NOT TO DRAW FIRE from those who are authoritatively able to confront them. It’s a cagy game they play. Unfortunately, for modern day heretics, they have been recorded and in many cases have been filmed in their folly. They have come to spread their heresies around the world, especially into Africa where there is a willing audience due to the common practice of Witchcraft in the African Church. It’s an easy transition from Witchcraft into heretical Christianity—-especially into the “Prosperity Gospel”. As a missionary to Africa, I can tell you that “orthodoxy” has been ravaged in Africa, from Nigeria to Kenya—from South Africa to the Mediterranean it is so. We’ll take a look at some American heresies and the heretics influenced by Heretic Kenneth Hagin
Trinity Broadcasting Network is the largest religious broadcasting system in the world. It is also FERTILE GROUND for the growth of rank heresies. You will, no doubt, recognize many of the TBN heretics named in this work.
Father of the heretical Word of Faith Movement
also claims that Jesus Christ took on the nature of Satan, says Hagin— “spiritual death means something more than separation from God. Spiritual death also means having Satan’s nature…Jesus tasted death—spiritual death—for every man.” (Kenneth E. Hagin, The Name of Jesus (Tulsa, OK: Kenneth Hagin Ministries, 1981), 31.
“He [Jesus] tasted spiritual death for every man. And His spirit and inner man went to hell in my place. Can’t you see that? Physical death wouldn’t remove your sins. He’s tasted death for every man. He’s talking about tasting spiritual death.” (Kenneth E. Hagin, How Jesus Obtained His Name (Tulsa, OK: Kenneth Hagin Ministries, n.d.), tape #44H01, side 1.
- These are the words of Jesus as he departed from this life into eternity——”Father, into thy hands I commit my Spirit”. Are these the words of a man who has taken on the Nature of Satan? If heresy could be numbered from one to ten in its level of offense—-this heresy would be a resounding “eleven”!

“Man…was created on terms of equality with God, and he could stand in God’s presence without any consciousness of inferiority…God has made us as much like Himself as possible…He made us the same class of being that He is Himself…Man lived in the realm of God. He lived on terms equal with God…The believer is called Christ…That’s who we are; we’re Christ!” (Kenneth M. Hagin, Zoe: The God-Kind of Life (Tulsa, OK: Kenneth Hagin Ministries, Inc., 1989), 35-36, 41.
15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
- Does this sound like a MAN who is equal with his creator?
