Perry Stone
 Perry Stone is a fourth-generation "minister," and the director of Voice of Evangelism, whose purpose is to "reach the world with the [so-called] Gospelof Christ through revivals, television, audio/video media, printed material andmissionary sponsorship." He is Charismatic.Personally, I like him and have read much of his literature in order to foundout what he really believes; but professionally, he is a fraud. So in order to befair, I will post what he believes, preaches and follows or said. Then what thebible teaches. This will allow for the reader to judge for themselves on thematter.He teaches that a person can receive physical healing and have their sinsremoved by taking communion. Perry Stone has sold a meal package deals(Manna-Fest Communion Packages) on his ministries' website, calling it theLord's Supper, and claiming that if you bought them, that you be healed of any sickness or disease. Of course, Perry Stone won't give you a refund if youdon't get healed. Jesus said this to his disciples. "
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers,raise the dead, cast out demons: freely you have received, freely give."
It is tragictoday many have turned the church into a den of thieves, just as Jesus said(Luke 19:46). "
Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but youhave made it a den of thieves."
Christianity is not a business!Perry Stone propagates the sinner's prayer which, without dealing personallywith souls, gives false hope and assurance to millions of readers, on his Voiceof Evangelism website. Under the "Contact Us" header on the VOE website isa link entitled, "How to be Saved," where readers are led through a prayerand at the end are promised salvation. It then welcome you as a new believerinto God's family. It is entirely ironic that a ministry that claims to be and iscalled a "voice of evangelism" actually embraces the very method of evangelism that is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, problems plaguingChristendom in America today. The sinner's prayer and it's correspondingmethod of evangelism was never used by any of God's prophets, apostles, ordisciples and is found nowhere in the Bible. It is a relatively recentdevelopment and has contributed to the false hope and assurance of millionswho are led to believe they are saved and bound for Heaven when in realityare merely deceived, not saved, and on their way to Hell, never having beenproperly and biblically counseled about such matters. The first message tosinners is Acts 2:38. "
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
 
Both Perry Stone and his father, Perry Fred Stone, Sr. (1933-2011), embracenecromancy. On one of the episodes of Perry Stone's "Manna-fest" televisionprogram, entitled, "Supernatural Encounters in the Last Days," his fatherdiscussed how the spirit of Al Collins, one of his friends who had died, visitedhim and told him that he was sent by God to tell him that God had called himto preach. Fred Stone discussed how he was caught up "out in the universesomewhere," where he saw "beautiful sapphire blue" and "a ball of light andfire" out of which the spirit of Al Collins met him. Fred also discussed how hewas, like Paul the apostle in 2 Corinthians 12:3, caught up into Heaven,where he opened one of the many giant books which he saw, entitled, "TheMighty Acts and Words of Jesus." He said he was able to read the contents of the book, and claimed that these writings were connected to what John wrotein John 21:25 regarding how many of the things Jesus did were left unwritten.He then went on to suggest that preachers like his son, Perry Stone,sometimes are inspired by the Holy Spirit and unknowingly preach messagesthat are found in these celestial books. God in His law has explicitlycondemned and forbidden His people from participating in necromancy(communicating with the dead or with the spirit world) and has declared it tobe an abomination (Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Leviticus 19:31). An abominationis that which is detestable, vile, and shameful, something that arousesintense hatred coupled with disgust, and is abhorred or loathed by God.Lastly, Perry Stone often appears on the Godless (and scandalized) TrinityBroadcasting Show (TBN).Here Perry's response to another person who disagreed with all of the factsabove. Here are his words.
"I am a forth generation minister from a classical Pentecostal background, and have over 42,000 hours of personal Bible study that is used when preparing any message. Duringover 32 years of ministry we have developed a large outreach ministry that reachesaround the world. Let's see how many of the "wolf chasers" who ave nothing more to dothan comment on things they know little about actually know about the VOE (Voice of Evangelism)ministry. Did your know:1. We do not send out letters, monthly or during the year asking for financial support or money to our mailing list.2. After a one time donation for initial costs ($20.00), the VOE magazine is sent free toeveryone who request it, 6 times a year. Some have received it for over twenty years...atno cost.3. We send thousands of books and other resources to prisoners FREE each year, at nocost and we pay the postage. We have actually spend hundreds of thousands of dollars tohelp those in prison with many converts to CHRIST!!!4. We have a fund that helps the poor and needy with food, clothes, and other needs...5. We minister in churches without asking for any set amount and operate only on a freewill offering.
 
6. We have college professors, including several scholars who watch our TV programsand who by and large, agree with the majority of the content and interpretation of themessage.Our ministry is funded from the sales of books, and materials. Oh, did I mention all fundsreceived from these resource materials goes 100 percent back into the ministry?Perhaps I should mention that 30,000 precious souls have come to Christ and and over 42,000 have been baptized in the Holy Spirit (Opps...I'm sure you don't believe in that sonow I'm a heretic)!Because you DISAGREE with a person's style, or certain content of a message, do NOTmake them a FALSE PROPHET. A false prophet denies the Virgin Birth, Christ's deity,and his resurrection. Just thought it is better for someone to know about a person from the person, instead from someone's lopsided person opinion."Sincerely,Perry Stone
He is no doubt a good man, who thinks that he is following the will of God. Yet he is mistaken, as the content of our message (or the words that wespeak) are very important. Jesus said this. "
For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned." (Matthew 12:37)
Note: Unlikesome, I do believe in the gift of the Holy Spirit, with tongues as evidence, butthat is not the baptism that now saves us.If we fail to place the word of God as top priority in our lives - no matter howgreat our works or gifts are - we will be lost. We are commanded by it to judge preachers by it, and not by our own judgment. "
Beware of false prophets,which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shallknow them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even soevery good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Agood tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord,Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesiedin thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done manywonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me,you that work iniquity." (Matthew 7:15-23)
.So we find that one day many who prophesied, healed and did manywonderful works in the Lord's name (of Jesus, read Acts 2:36; 10:36) were stilllost. Why? Because they failed to obey the Scriptures. Paul commanded usall. "And
whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,giving thanks to God the Father by him." (Colossians 3:17)
Baptism is a deed done,with a word spoken over it. One must apply the name of Jesus to it or remainlost. The apostle Paul was baptized into that same name (see Acts 18:8; 19:5;
