Beware: Joyce Meyer Heresies

Joyce Meyer since 1980 has been a full-time Pentecostal preacher and is no stranger to preached heresy. Besides the strict bible scripture from the Apostle Paul forbidding a woman to teach and preach to a man, “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being quite deceived, fell into transgression,” (1 Tim. 2:12-14) she is regularly teaching heresy.

“During that time He entered hell, where you and I deserved to go (legally) because of our sin….He paid the price there.…no plan was too extreme…Jesus paid on the cross and in hell….God rose up from His throne and said to demon powers tormenting the sinless Son of God, “Let Him go.” Then the resurrection power of Almighty God went through hell and filled Jesus….He was resurrected from the dead ¾ the first born-again man.” (Meyer, The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make: A Complete And Thorough Understanding Of What It Means To Be Born Again (Tulsa: Harrison House, 1991), 35-36. This heresy is as far as I am aware has not been corrected, and she is non-repentant of this heresy! Where in Scripture does it teach that Jesus spoke to “demon powers” to “Let Him Go”? Wow!

Again; “There is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this truth I am presenting. You cannot go to heaven unless you believe with all your heart that Jesus took your place in hell.” Meyer, The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make (1991), 37

Meyer goes against Jesus’ atonement clearly as Jesus said on the cross:
“After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said, ‘I thirst.’ A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ‘It is finished,’ and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” (John 19:28-30)
. His atoning work was completed on the cross, not from a weekend trip to hell!

We are “not to exceed what is written”!
1 Corinthians 4: 6-7, “6 Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other. 7 For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?”

They are wolves in sheep’s clothing who will coyly preach twisted-scripture!
Acts 20: 27-31, 27 For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. 28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. 31 So be on your guard!

Meyer has preached and written more heresies that will be looked at at a later date.

Terminology Tuesday: Patripassianism

*Derived from the Greek words pater (father) and pascho (to suffer), the term refers to an early type of modalism that suggests that the one God ( the Father) became incarnate in the form of the Son, was born of a virgin and suffered and died on the cross. This belief was declared heretical by the early church.
