The Word-Faith Movement gets its teachings from E.W. Kenyon (1867-1948) and recently from Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland. Kenyon got many of his teachings from Metaphysical cults such as New Age Thought, Christian Science, and Gnosticism. There are basically five doctrines of this movement, they are as follows:
  1. Revelation Knowledge
  2. Tongues
  3. Faith
  4. Healing
  5. Prosperity

Another name for this movement/cult is the popular " Prosperity Gospel". Summed up briefly this movement believes that based on the amount of one's faith they can say it or will it and they can have all the riches they desire. One proponent of this movement, Frederick K.C. Price once said, "I drive a Rolls Royce because I have a Rolls Royce kind of faith, if you drive a Volkswagen it's because you have a Volkswagen kind of faith." This non-sense is taught nowhere in scripture and is completely heretic.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

New King James Version (NKJV)

10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Matthew 24:23-25

New King James Version (NKJV)

23 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.
Verkondig die woord; hou aan tydig en ontydig; weerlê, bestraf, vermaan in alle lankmoedigheid en lering; want daar sal ‘n tyd wees wanneer hulle die gesonde leer nie sal verdra nie, maar, omdat hulle in hul gehoor gestreel wil wees, vir hulle ‘n menigte leraars sal versamel volgens hulle eie begeerlikhede, en die oor sal afkeer van die waarheid en hulle sal wend tot fabels. Maar wees jy in alles nugter; ly verdrukking; doen die werk van ‘n evangelis; vervul jou bediening.
