Impotent: Steve Anderson 2

After yesterday’s response, I thought I’d share another one of this preacher’s videos. Many of you think that this guy is just mean, or simply fundamental or picking on NewSpring/Perry Noble. I want to make sure you don’t miss what I mean by impotent. His messages have no power, no meaning, no effectiveness – they are truly impotent.

OH MY GOODNESS. I don’t know where to begin. Did you watch the whole video? He made fun of the editors of the New King James Version. He made fun of the editors of the NIV. Do you have any idea how hard Bible translators work? And he made absolutely no sense.Â

Impotent is one thing and I hope to shed some light on impotent preaching this week, but this man shouldn’t be aloud to preach in public. Seriously, Steve – buy a commentary and read it.

I was going to stop with his “pisseth” crap, then I came across his “Billy Graham is the Enemy of God” sermon. At 2 minutes and 9 seconds into his video, he says and I quote: “Billy Graham’s a false teacher. He’s a false prophet.” Watch:

Â defines an idiot as “an utterly foolish or senseless person.” I’m not trying to name call – I’m stating a fact. Steven L. Anderson, you’re an idiot. And if there was ever a “false teacher” – brother that’s you. Again, answer my email and let’s meet later this month when I’m in Phoenix. I’m sure we’d have an interesting discussion.

Blog readers, bear with me. All these posts (and tomorrow’s new preacher) are leading towards an intentional conclusion. I have something burning in my heart/spirit that I want to say. So, if you watched the above videos, what are your thoughts?

I won’t personally attack this terribly wrong man. I’ll simply say 5 things:

  1. The King James is not the only “inspired” Word of God – far from it.
  2. My pastor, Pete Briscoe, preaches from the NIV every week. You seem to take issue with the liberal NIV.
  3. God does use churches like NewSpring and because of their efforts, God is blessing them and people are coming to Christ.
  4. Use the pulpit to preach the Gospel, not to call out Perry Noble
  5. Legalism sucks. I named my first born Grace because I so hate legalism and so embrace God’s grace.

*Here is his YouTube channel if you’d like to see more from him. He apparently loves to set up a camera and post videos. I’m sure he won’t mind you watching him.

NOTE: I have emailed Steven and asked to meet with him when I speak in Phoenix this month. My hope is to discuss his teaching and strong views with him. We definitely don’t see eye to eye.
