Andrew Farley, Pastor of Church Without Religion, False Teacher
We are unapologetically concerned that many are being misled by this false ministry and seek to be obedient to the LORD to protect His beloved flock (Romans 16:17-18, etc.).
First, watch this clip and then let’s examine Andrew Farley’s teaching in light of the whole counsel of God’s Word.
Andrew Farley is a salesman. As you can see, he takes one verse out of context to tell his audience that they are eternally secure, OSAS (once saved always saved) no matter what they do or how they live, all based on their one-time faith in Christ. Is that what the whole counsel of Scripture teaches?
First off, when you look over Andrew Farley’s topics that he addresses, you will see that there is nothing of biblical conviction, true repentance, or denial of self to follow Christ – the cross. Typical lightweight scammer described in Jeremiah 23 and Ezekiel 34.
In this clip, Farley lifts one verse out of context as a “proof” text that those truly saved could never lose their salvation. Oh and of all books, he lifts it out of the book of Hebrews which annihilates all possibility of this antinomian (lawless) lie. Here’s the text:
“But this man (Jesus), because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:24-25
Note the condition: “that come unto God by him.” Those who come to the LORD initially and continually will receive final salvation. There are conditions for both but Farley conveniently ignores what the whole of Scripture testifies. See the block buster book Lie of the Ages.
IF you believe OSAS (once saved always saved), a mere cliche’, you did not find that lie in Scripture other than specifically being Satan’s first lie and the message of his false prophets (Genesis 2:17; 3:4; Jeremiah 23:17; Jude 3-4, etc.).
Gene Weiand writes: “I have been in debates with many who believe OSAS. They love their sin more than repentance. One even said if he raped kids and murdered them, and he got killed by police, he’d still go to Heaven. Another said that if Hitler got saved while a teenage painter, and didn’t repent again before death, that he would still go to Heaven. I asked if he really believed that, and if not, then where is the line on sin without repentance? He called me a heretic. My first wife was a Baptist preacher’s daughter. She slept with dozens of men in our first six months. I went to her dad and asked his help. He said, ‘Don’t worry about it. It’s just the worldly temple. Her soul is born again.’ Ugh.”
Also concerning the many ear-tickling wolves of our day, Jim Borge writes: “There is a superficial readiness all around to believe anyone who talks cleverly, lovingly and earnestly, forgetting that Satan often masquerades himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). There is a wide-spread ignorance among professing Christians–every heretic who speaks well is surely believed, and anyone who doubts him is called narrow-minded and unloving. Signs of our times.”
On the churchwithoutreligion website, we read:
“Yes, because we’re all about relationship with Jesus Christ, not legalistic, religious rules. Perhaps we are best known for our teaching, as our lead pastor Andrew Farley is the bestselling author of The Naked Gospel and host of a live, call-in program that airs nationwide on Sirius XM. And our worship music produced by …”
Can we dissect these selling points (half-truths)?
On their “about us” page, Andrew Farley and churchwithoutreligion claim that they are “all about relationship with Jesus Christ.” Upon closer examination, that means that as long as biblical truth doesn’t interview with our “we’ll do it our own way” perspective, we will acknowledge it. Classic, lawless, obvious false ministry. True worship which includes dying to self and obeying God is pawned off as “religion” and legalism and works salvation.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21
Since when did obeying the crucified LORD and Savior become “religion”?
“They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.” Titus 1:16
“He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:4
Unrepentant beguilers and false leaders, when faced with Holy Scripture that clearly contradicts the OSAS lie, will say things like “that’s religion” or “that’s legalism” or “that’s works salvation.” Instead of being teachable, correctable, and repentant, they throw up this sham of a smokescreen when the Word of God exposes us. That’s exactly what the hell bound pharisees of Jesus’ day did (Mark 7:6-9).
In other words, we are telling you what you want to hear so that you will come along for the ride. We want your attention and your money so we are lying to you, with half-truths and intentional neglect of mountains of Holy Scripture.
Their pastor, who calls himself a doctor against Jesus’ teaching (Matthew 23:8-12) is a “Best selling author” which means he is lying to people as would be the case for any best selling author or popular preacher. Jesus warns: “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” (Luke 6:26) They are boasting in this as if to say “Listen to us. We are the truth, never mind the Bible.” Only the cross-less counterfeit who refuses to get into God’s Word for himself will be deceived by this fraud church.
The Holy Spirit warns us through Paul:
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4
You’ve just seen Satan … when you hear some snake teaching OSAS / un-conditional eternal security! (Gen 2:17; 3:4)
On the “our pastor” page of the churchwithoutreligion church, we read:
“Dr. Andrew Farley is the lead teaching pastor of Church Without Religion and a bestselling author of six Christian books. Andrew serves as a faculty advisor for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (apostate), and he frequently speaks to Christian university groups like Campus Crusade for Christ (ecumenical organization) and at churches around the United States and in Canada.”
Farley is part of the prophesied “conspiracy” of the false prophets against Christ in this late hour (Ezekiel 22:25-27).
THE BIBLE TEACHES US THAT IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO GET SAVED, YOU BETTER STAY SAVED OR ALL WILL BE LOST!
Jesus told His very own that in this late hour, when iniquity/sin will abound all around us, only those who “endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:10-13
Laughably, the OSAS beguiler will unthinkablly go so far as to argue that this must be speaking about lost souls. Listen to Jesus and note the use of the words “IN me” – “Every branch IN ME that beareth not fruit he taketh away … If a man abide (remain) not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.” (John 15:2, 6) Those who make excuses for not bearing good fruit instead of truly repenting and authentically, obediently following Christ, are as sure for eternal damnation as if they were already there. Read your Bible saints and beware of the “MANY false prophets” who peddle the Devil’s OSAS heresy (Matthew 7:15; 24:11; Jude 3-4).
Repent truly, get rooted in Christ, lay down your life, or perish. The root determines to fruit and if you are going to be rooted in Christ you must obey Him, beginning with true repentance.
Here are more Bible verses intentionally dodged by the self-serving cowards laughably who claim to be Christ’s pastors:
“And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” Matthew 3:10
“EVERY tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” Matthew 7:19
If you don’t truly repent and reading God’s Word closely, daily, and diligently for yourself, you will be deceived and ultimately damned (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
Some reading these words need to stop eating and die – starve your sin nature and seek the face of the LORD. If you don’t you will remain separated from Christ and headed for the lake of fire.
“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.” 2 Peter 2:20-21
Well for those who teach this lie, they do so because it sells, all while lying by saying it’s part of the Gospel. WHY do you think this OSAS teaching is the pet doctrine of those who teach and those who espouse it? Obviously they have personal interest in it. Why? Well, because in their willingly deceived minds, they want this supposed license to sin teacher to be true so they can live as they wish and still believe they are going to Heaven. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Holy Spirit warned us about this very teaching and those who peddle it:
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness (license for sin), and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 3-4
By the grace of Christ the LORD, I wear the scorn of OSAS defenders as a badge of honor (Matthew 5:10-12). Here’s a radio debate I was invited to participate in with a baptist pastor who peddles this lie …. enjoy…
