On today’s show we review Bill Johnson’s latest book ‘God is Good’. Is it as good as many pastors and leaders in the Charismatic movement claim? What does it teach?
Because they are trying to recruit and influence in my own fellowship I decided to share some issues about Jesus Culture's pastor and "apostle" Bill Johnson. We are to test all things and this man falls short in a biblical examination. May we be gracious to those who ascribe to Bill's oddities while openly denouncing the peculiar and invasive doctrines and practices that are being exported to the church at large through Bethel Redding.

Bill Johnson is an effective purveyor of kenosis, the heretical teaching that Christ operated on earth solely as a man, with no “Divine capacity” whatsoever. Every miracle, every healing that Christ performed, according to Johnson, came about through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, Johnson teaches, we can all perform healings and miracles, since we also have access to the Holy Spirit.
Thus Johnson’s kenosis doctrine serves to reduce the biblical Christ and elevate man. As Bob Dewaay points out:“Jesus is no longer unique, but only a special enlightened one who could lead the way to many such enlightened ones in the future.
Thus we have a New Age Christ.” Kenosis comes from a misunderstanding of Philippians 2:7: …but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

by Matt Slick
Pelagianism derives its name from Pelagius who lived in the 5th century A.D. and was a teacher in Rome, though he was British by birth. It is a heresy dealing with the nature of man. Pelagius, whose family name was Morgan, taught that people had the ability to fulfill the commands of God by exercising the freedom of human will apart from the grace of God.
In other words, a person's free will is totally capable of choosing God and/or to do good or bad without the aid of Divine intervention.
Pelagianism teaches that man's nature is basically good. Thus it denies original sin, the doctrine that we have inherited a sinful nature from Adam. He said that Adam only hurt himself when he fell, and all of his descendants were not affected by Adam's sin. Pelagius taught that a person is born with the same purity and moral abilities as Adam was when he was first made by God. He taught that people can choose God by the exercise of their free will and rational thought. God's grace, then, is merely an aid to help individuals come to Him.
Pelagianism fails to understand man's nature and weakness. We are by nature sinners (Eph. 2:3; Psalm 51:5). We all have sinned because sin entered the world through Adam: "Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned" (Rom. 5:12, NIV). Furthermore, Romans 3:10-12 says, “There is none righteous, not even one; 11 There is none who understands, There is none who seeks for God; 12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless; There is none who does good, There is not even one." Therefore, we are unable to do God's will (Rom. 6:16; 7:14). We were affected by the fall of Adam--contrary to what Pelagius taught.

Question: "What is Christian Dominionism?"
Answer: Dominionism, or Christian Dominionism is a term coined by social scientists and popularized by journalists to refer to a subset of American Christianity that is conservative, politically active, and believes that Christians should, and eventually will, take control of the government. The term is sometimes used as a “catch-all” by bloggers to describe any politically active Christian, but not every conservative, politically minded Christian is a Dominionist.
Christian Dominionists believe that God desires Christians to rise to power through civil systems so that His Word might then govern the nation. The belief that “America is a Christian nation” is sometimes called “soft dominionism”; the idea that God wants only Christians to hold government office and run the country according to biblical law is called “hard dominionism.”
Dominion theology’s beliefs are based on Genesis 1:28, which says, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth" (emphasis added).
This verse is taken by Christian Dominionists as a divine mandate to claim dominion over the earth, physically, spiritually and politically.
Kingdom Now Theology
Most popular among Charismatic and Pentecostal groups, focuses on taking dominion of the earth by way of spiritual battle. Kingdom Now adherents believe that long ago Satan stole the “keys of spiritual dominion” when he deceived Adam and Eve. Then, when Christ gave the “keys of the kingdom” to Peter in Matthew 16:19, it was a sign that dominion had been returned to man. Now it is our job to “take back” what is rightfully ours – that is, to claim dominion over the earth and spiritually subdue it for Christ. Proponents of Kingdom Now theology believe that the capturing of this dominion includes having Christians in political office, plus a return of spiritual power, manifested by signs, miracles and healing. Kingdom Now theology is taught in the book When Heaven Invades Earth by Bill Johnson of Bethel Church.
While many well-meaning Christians are attracted to these philosophies, Christian Dominionism and its offshoots are unbiblical. Although these systems of thought are nominally based on biblical principles, both Christian Reconstructionism and Kingdom Now theology veer away from the heart and message of the gospel. It is understandable that Christians, troubled by abortion and the general moral chaos of a relativistic society, want to take control of the culture and steer it back towards sanity. But holding to Dominionism is not a biblically viable option.

A clip of what happens at Bethel School of
Supernatural Ministry. As you can see and hear,
this church focuses on emotional rock music as part
of their "worship". It has become part of the emotional driven "it's all about my feelings"
modern day church.

Tyler Johnson and his "Dead Raisers" claim to have brought several people back to life. If you can't cope with your loved one dying, call Tyler. Maybe he can help! (Spoiler Alert: He can't.)
Here are some clear examples of how Bill Johnson teaches and believes in a "different gospel". He actually believes that God is in "charge" but not in "control". He believes that God put us in "control". Question for Bill: When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden, did that catch God off guard? Did God not know from before time that Adam and Eve would sin and throw the whole world into death both physically and spiritually? Did God not know from before time that He would send His Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for sinners? Didn't Christ suffer on the cross? Wasn't that God's prearranged plan?
