During the most recent TBN Pimp-a-thon, a false teacher with a lengthy track record took to the stage for a performance. None other than false bishop Clarence E. McClendon. I’ll let you watch his antics first. Video captured by our brother Matt Green. After which I’ll explain why this man is a heretic all should avoid.
Here’s an interesting bit of information about McClendon, courtesy of Apostasywatch.com
|Bishop Clarence McClendon P.H.D.
There’s plenty more about McClendon worth reading there, but I’ve warned in the past, to avoid those who are associated with Prosperity Gospel Pimp University!
During the video above, McClendon says to move on prophetic word. Since when did God start communicating with men who don’t respect their wife?
|1 Peter 3:7 (New American Standard Bible)
McClendon’s (first) wife not only has mentioned that he disrespected and pressured her to divorce him, but it’s also alleged, that McClendon was a player in sex scandals of Earl “The Abomination” Paulk. McClendon has multiple witnesses speaking against his integrity as a good and faithful husband. We also know, that the denomination he used to be part of (Four Square) disciplined him for divorce and he left them, to join with pulpit pimp Paul Morton’s Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship of Pulpit Pimps. This is the man speaking as if he can tell someone about prophetic word! Scripture shows he’s the man all should avoid, 1 Timothy 5:19-20.
McClendon went on to claim, that people should assert that they are not going to participate in economic recession. Where was McClendon during the famine in scripture, that all including saints endured and there were poor saints all over? I guess Clarence could have told the Apostles to just deny participation in the famine . Why didn’t Paul tell debt slaves to simply deny their poverty and say they would not participate in being poor? Rather, Paul told them to avoid men who claim godliness is a means of monetary gain, 1 Timothy 6. Again, we see Clarence E. McClendon is speaking words that are NOT the gospel of the Lord Jesus, but very much the opposite. An anti-christ message, with a sticker of “Christianity” slapped on the front of it. That is really a message of mammon, Luke 16:13.
In an effort to defend himself and the spiritual crime syndicate he’s part of, McClendon claims nobody should talk you out of following or giving to someone such as himself. Well what about GOD declaring that we should not follow someone such as McClendon in scripture, 2 Peter 2? Clarence has very smooth words, but he does not have agreement with the Word of God.
McClendon spoke defiantly against government inquiry. I have written in the past, how these liars speaking in defiance to being scrutinized are not being true to scripture. But of course a spiritual crime syndicate is going to do all it can to avoid investigation.
Clarence had fake tongues a plenty. Can someone translate that babble? Of course not! It was not of God. These shysters on TV, act as if tongues is for babbling gobbledygook. Tarnishing the true use of the gift, which was to minister to unbelievers in their native tongue. (Also see: The Truth about Speaking in Tongues, a Video Presentation.)
McClendon appealed to the old and poorly handled “wealth of wicked into the hands of the righteous” line. Let’s look at the scripture that was hacked.
|Proverbs 13:22 (New American Standard Bible)
First it should be mentioned, lying swindlers like Clarence E. McClendon are not righteous. But we are informed by Jesus Christ, that saints would endure poverty. And the wealth for saints is not stored up in this world, to be granted in this life, but in Heaven. To be received after Jesus says well done to his faithful servants.
|Luke 6:20-26 (New American Standard Bible)
While it’s true that good men provide for their household and Israel was granted many material rewards. Saints are informed our reward is not of this world and the Lord made it clear His kingdom is not of this world at all, John 18:36. What was for Israel in material wealth was only a foreshadowing of greater things to come for those who hold to the Lord for a greater reward after this life, Hebrews 11. People like McClendon are lost in shadows, seeking money in this life instead of true righteousness.
Clarence also pulled out his own spin of the very lame “touch not the anointed” line. If you don’t already know why that statement is totally ridiculous in the manner people on TBN handle it, please read: â€œTouch Not My Anointedâ€..The command of God or the cries of the misled??
McClendon requested that people make a vow of prosperity and such? What does Jesus say about vows?
|Matthew 5:33-37 (New American Standard Bible)
Jesus Christ has warned AGAINST making any vows. The Apostles never told Gentile Christians to make any vow.
McClendon used the bogus general statement, that “somebody” is going to have a situation turn around. Anyone who says somebody is going to slip on some ice in the winter is as authentic as this guy. It’s a generic statement, simply said to play on the crowd’s emotions. (And seeing grown men jumping and screaming in response is rather sickening.)
Clarence was telling people they will get things without money. Fine, tell that to Jan Crouch and stop begging.
McClendon is burdening people for money. Repeatedly going to them for cash. Seeking for people to give out of necessity and compulsion, as a means to try and make more money for themselves, which goes against 2 Corinthians 9:7. While Paul instead of repeatedly seeking money from people, told saints to keep their money for their own children, 2 Corinthians 12:14.
Here’s what sending TBN money sounds like.
|Acts 8:18-23 (New American Standard Bible)
You can’t buy a gift from God and nobody should ever claim to sell such either.
If economic downturn is a moment of possession for saints, what did saints take from Jerusalem after the famine there?
Clarence said he was giving (so-called “sowing”) $1000. And how much is TBN paying him for his performance?
McClendon claims that God has men and women who are “wired”, so they can pull things out of heaven and declare them in the earth. But there is only ONE mediator between God and man and His name is NOT Clarence McClendon, 1 Timothy 2:5. It is God, not man, who calls things into being that do not exist, Romans 4:17.
Do all you can to avoid heretics such as Clarence E. McClendon.
