Chad Marinelli; God in a Box, A Review Part 4

God in a Box, WoF Quotes, Part 4 by Yodas Prodigy


God is not sovereign in Word Faith Theology.

Below are some issues that Dr Marinelli should have grappled with including the following concepts espoused by the Word Faith Fathers:

E.W. Kenyon

It seems that God is limited by our prayer life, that He can do nothing for humanity unless someone asks Him to do it. Why this is, I do not know.” (“The Two Kinds of Faith,” p. 42).

Kenneth Hagin

a. “Originally, God made the earth and the fullness thereof, giving Adam dominion over all the works of His hands. In other words, Adam was the god of this world. (Kenneth Hagin, “The Believer’s Authority, 1987, p. 19)

b. Therefore, Adam had dominion upon this earth and in this world. He was originally, in a sense, god of this world. But Satan came and lied to Adam. Adam committed high treason and sold out to Satan. Then Satan became the god of this world. (Hagin, “The Art of Intercession,” 1980, p.3; reissued as “The Art of Prayer” both 1992 and 2000 editions contain the same teaching.

c. “I began to examine the Bible to find out why, if God wants to do something for humanity, He cannot unless somebody asks Him.” (Hagin, Ibid, p. 1).

d. “God cannot legally and justly move in and take away that dominion from the devil. The devil has dominion here. He has a right. He has Adam’s lease. And God cannot do anything unless somebody down here asks Him.” (Ibid, p. 3).

Kenneth Copeland

a. “God’s reason for creating Adam was His desire to reproduce Himself. I mean a reproduction of Himself, and in the Garden of Eden He did just that.” (“Following the Faith of Abraham,” side 1).

b. (speaking after the Fall) “God had no avenue of lasting faith or moving in the earth. He had to have covenant with somebody. He had to be invited in, in other words, or He couldn’t come.” (“God’s Covenants With Man II,” side 1).

c. (Speaking about God and Abraham – God speaking) “I’m making a proposition to you. You can tell me to bug off if you don’t like it.” (Ibid, side 2).

Charles Capps

a. “God said, “Let us make man IN OUR IMAGE AFTER OUR LIKENESS.” The word, likeness, in the original Hebrew meant ‘an exact duplication in kind.’ (“Authority In Three Worlds,” p. 17).

Fred Price

God can’t do anything in this earth realm except what we, the body of Christ, allow Him to do.” (Audiotape PR #11)

I would like to now close this series with a final comment. Dr. Marinelli’s work had so many errors that it would have taken a book of equal volume to correct his mistakes. I chose to select the most obvious errors. I hope that you will take the time to compare my series with the actual work of Dr. Chad Marinelli found elsewhere in this site.
