As I mentioned in other post, and videos, The Word of Faith movement is an occult (Season 2, Episode 1). While I totally believe in the Holy Spirit's power to perform miracles through believers (1 Corinthians 12:1-15), I also believe that there are many churches and people who claim to be Christian, who are doing things outside of God wills, and without having a relationship with God, and are only focused on the supernatural. Thus, they are occults in disguise (Matthew 7:15-23). I believe most of these churches will deny they are occults, because their hearts have been harden, and their minds blinded by falsehood and pride. 

The occult, in the broadest sense, is a category of supernatural beliefs and practices which generally fall outside the scope of religion and science, encompassing such phenomena involving otherworldly agency as mysticism, spirituality, and magic. - Occult definition via Google.

Unfortunately, like most, I grew up thinking that The Word of Faith movement was Christianity. It wasn't until Jesus intentionally allowed me to go through many trials as a Christian, that I realized that the Word of Faith movement doctrine is really wrong. At one point, I believed these ministers over the world of God (Martha's moments: Why do we have trials & tribulations as believers?). One of the slogans from the founder of the Word of Faith movement is "I am not moved by how I feel." As I briefly mentioned in Season 1 of Martha's Talk, this statement is really wrong, and here's why:

  • Compassion is a feeling - Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” Among emotion researchers, it is defined as the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another's suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering. Compassion is not the same as empathy or altruism, though the concepts are related.
If we are not moved by how we feel, then we will never be moved when we see the suffering of others, whether Christians or non-believers, we will not do anything to help alleviate the sufferings of others. Also, people who say they are not moved by their feelings, tend to bottle up their feelings by pretending that they don't have them, in order to appear to be a "good," Christian. Guess who was often moved by his feeling of compassion? JESUS! Read the following scriptures:
So naturally, you may want to ask me,if not being moved by how we feel is not correct. Then should we be moved by how we feel? The answer to that question is it depends. There are a lot of reasons we feel the way that we do, I happen to believe that a lot of us have the feelings that we have towards something or someone because of trauma, specifically childhood trauma. The only person that can sort out our feelings and make sense of it, is Jesus! So, when you are feeling something, whether compassion, heart break, anger, etc, I'd suggest that you lay down on your bed with no noise, and talk outloud to Jesus about everything you're feeling. If you feel like you hate someone but don't know why, be honest with Jesus and literally say out loud "Jesus, I feel like I hate XYZ, but I don't know why. Are these feelings real? What am I to do with these feelings." Meanwhile, because we know how we are to treat others as Christians, we should try our best to show love, while allowing Jesus to help us sort through how we feel, which btw, could take months or even years.

Note: Faith is not a feeling, but if we do not feel like we have faith, we should not ignore that feeling but rather talk to God about it (S4E2: The Robot of Christianity). The same is true about love.

Today, I read Galatians 6 and I talked to God about what was on my mind. I asked him if he expected us to be robots? Basically do everything perfectly without having an opinion that's different than his opinion? At what point does our response to God become disrespectful? Can we tell God, that we can't? Does God expect us to be yes [wo]men, or does he want us to have a relationship with him in which we are honest and then learn why God's ways are best for us? 

11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. - Titus 2:11-14

What is the bible? Why do we read the bible? What is the purpose of the bible? (S2E2: Understanding the Bible) The bible should be used as a guide but should not be used as an opportunity to become legalistic. Trying to be perfect is being overly conscious about every moment of your life, which will only lead to anxiety, stress or burnout, but learning to be perfect is allowing Jesus to teach you (and others) how to be like him.When we learn to be perfect, we believe that we need Jesus to change our life. When we are learning to be perfect, we can relax even if we have tons of stuff that Jesus needs to deal with. Jesus's lessons sometimes takes a lot time for a person to understand.  What matters to Jesus is our relationship with him as we progress to be more like him. Knowing that we don't have to perform, but can repent as soon as we know the better that we ought to do, is how we will continue to grow an authentic relationship with Jesus, stress free. The reason why a lot of us ignorantly use our own self-effort to try and be perfect is because of our environment; either our nuclear family or society conditioned us to believe that we are to always strive, so rest in Christ (not laziness in Christ) may seem like a strange concept, or it may seem wrong. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, our culture and family does play a role in the way that we understand the bible, and view our relationship with Jesus, until Jesus teaches us otherwise. 

27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:27-29 

An example of trying to be perfect: 

•Never saying no to something that involves Christianity because we think that it's the Christian thing to do. Only Jesus said yes to God's will, all the time. Even then, as a human, he begged God for a change. Read Matthew 26:36-39,Mark 14:33-36,Luke 22:40-42,John 6:36-38. If Jesus in human nature, had a struggle, how much more will we?

An example of learning to be perfect: 

•Being honest with God about your thoughts and feelings towards him and whatever he asked you to do. When we are honest with God, he can then start to teach us why we are wrong, and the reasons why he's right. Never questioning God about a decision he wants you to make or about something that's written in the bible, makes you a robot without relationship. If you don't believe in something, tell God and then ask him to help you to change your heart, if you're going against God's will. We are not robots, and God knows this! The goal is a relationship with God, and gradual growth to become more Christ like.

Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,  as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.  And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. - John 17:1-3

Note: I am not saying that God's will is not important, nor am I saying that it is okay not to do God's will. Rather, I am saying that there maybe seasons in which you question God's will, and that's okay, as long as you are talking to God about how you feel about it!
