Jesus said, of the ministry of the Helper: And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they do not believe in Me, of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; and of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged (John 16:7-11). This what the Holy Spirit speaks through any true minister who is focusing on the unsaved: sin, righteousness and judgment. CRANK however, focus is on money, money and you guess it, MONEY!
Paul wrote to young Timothy, who was going to be the pastor to the church in Ephesus, I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2 Tim 4:1-4).
Timothy is charged by Paul to teach these certain elements along with the Gospel and any good minister would do the same. So this is the question that needs to be answered.
Most have not listened carefully or long enough to hear Crank's heresy. But give him time and those word faith statements will become apparent. In my opinion, if you have listened often enough you have heard nearly all the subject matter he conveys. He says the same type of message in different ways, or maybe it's his voice and delivery that makes it all sound the same. At best, one gets milk from him; at worst they get positive thinking and word faith heresies. A pastor is called to feed the flock the whole counsel of God- from Genesis to Revelation. Unfortunately, people will interpret his soft-spoken manner as exhibiting a Christ-like spirit and ignore the non-Biblical content expressed, which has been traded in for a motivational spiritual pep talk. Again his fantasy of Jesus going to hell and being under the power of Satan is no small teaching to ignore. It deals with the gospel itself, the nature of Jesus, which does not qualify him as a good teacher or minister by any Biblical standard. It is another gospel.
Is it any reason why Crank and Osteen are NOW working together? They both have a "cotton candy" message. "Practical," "Easy," "Simple" are just a few words to describe Cranks message.
I've never been a fan of David Crank. I believe he is a false teacher with a false Gospel. He just reaffirmed this to me in his message this past Tuesday night.
Fellow believers, 2 Timothy 4:3 does not lie. The bible is not a lie. False Teacher will come and David Crank is another one. Any preacher who is "scared" of man is not a man of God. The bible clearly outlines that followers Chirst will be persucruted. You think the Great Apostle Paul was afraid of man? NO! There is a reason he wrote HALF the New Testament.
Crank and others who refuse to preach on Heaven and Hell and preach the whole gospel because there "scared" people will start leaving the church-meaning money lost-is a false teacher.
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;" II Timothy 4:3
Tuesday nights message proved this scripture. For those currently going, listen INTENTLY to his message. I personally recorded the message and took
phenomenal notes and this man is a fraud.
I failed to mention in my last post that Crank did a pub on selling merchandise. Typical preachers. I guess offering isn't enough so he tries to get more money through his books and videos.
I find it interesting that he brags about giving way FREE DVD's of his service. I have personally ordered two or three DVD's, NONE work. So there is a reason their free. Another reason they are FREE because it's supposed to make them look legit. Same thing with them wearing Jeans and not asking for money on their telecast.
Avoid this ministry at ALL cost.
