Watch List

The purpose of the following list is to give an alphabetical arrangement of particular ministries/businesses, schools, teachers, “prophets”, leaders, podcasters, Facebookers, Twitters, YouTubers, (etc…) for you to research and decide for yourself if what they teach is Biblical and Godly or not.

When we originally compiled this list, it wasn’t with the “big name” charismatic leaders in mind, such as Benny Hinn or Kim Clement. But we were talking about the “smaller, less well-known” people who have a tendency to be even more esoteric and far-out-there with their theology than even the “regular” charismatics.

But please keep this in mind: the charismatic movement originates from Satan himself, and is one of the major ways the demonic are infiltrating Christianity, causing many people to reject and turn away from their faith!

It should be clear to the discerning Christian that this demonic infection is not limited to just a few charismatic denominations or individuals. This demonic, charismatic mindset is quickly spreading throughout the entirety of Christendom, bringing with it false doctrines, false teachers, and a focus on the supernatural… on gifts and abilities… on spiritual experiences… on spiritual manifestations… on what can be seen and felt… on the esoteric and hidden… on following after this man or that woman, or this ministry or that teaching… on everything except the properly exegeted Word of God and the simple, pure gospel of Jesus Christ! Whether Presbyterian or Lutheran or Church of Christ or Apostolic, this ungodly mindset has infiltrated and infected all denominations to varying degrees, and it will continue until no single church is left untouched.

So please remember that this is not a comprehensive list! Just because someone’s name isn’t on this list doesn’t mean you can consider them “safe.” Generally speaking, any leader or “minister” (by whatever title they give themselves… whether apostle, prophet, pastor, life coach, counselor, etc) that is in the charismatic movement to any degree at all, or who has a charismatic mindset regardless of what denomination they affiliate with, should be suspect, as the theology that comes out of such charismatic-minded individuals is of Satan (refer to the above paragraph for the simplest explanation of why their theology is of Satan… and read our book for a more thorough explanation).

Furthermore, many of the people and ministries/organizations listed below have many different websites, many different “ministries” or branches within their “ministries,” and many are interconnected with one another’s “ministries,” or have even come about as an offshoot of another, so it’s hard to keep up with everything.

Satan’s Plan is a HUGE web of deception that is spreading like cancer, and even if we wanted the depressing job of keeping up with every single individual or ministry/business that is being used to spread false doctrine (and no, it’s not the mission of this website to keep up with them…), it’s absolutely impossible. So, this list names just a few of the ones that we are familiar with, either personally, or through our subsequent research.

We plan to keep this list updated periodically as time permits, adding the names of such individuals and their affiliated ministries/businesses as we come across them, or remember about them, or otherwise become aware of them, but again… this list is not a complete, comprehensive list of people who are teaching false doctrine.

In order to discern for yourself what each individual/ministry/organization is teaching and promoting, don’t rely on this or any other list. Instead, line up their teachings, their character, and their actions with the properly exegeted Word of God, and then it should be clear if what they are teaching and promoting is of God or not.

This is what “testing the spirits” is all about.
