We would ask that you pray for each person we have listed here.  It is our belief that they have fallen for Satan's oldest trick.  They have become so powerful, wealthy and are revered by so many that they have lost their focus.  What used to be is no more.  I truly believe that these preachers/teachers began their Ministry with the intention of honoring our Lord and Savior but once they attained such status, they turned their focus to the Ministry instead of to God.  Please keep each of them in your prayers that they might see the error of their ways and turn once again to the One True God and Savior.
Attributes of false confused and/or misled Preachers

. False teachers are proud.  They are concerned for their own popularity.  They are concerned for their own fame.  They are concerned for their own notoriety.  They are concerned for their own prestige.  They’re concerned to see themselves and hear themselves in the public eye.  They want large crowds, as it were, to bow down in great homage to them.  They’re characterized by pride and they will do anything to gain the ground they need to gain for the welfare of their own personal ego, including any amount of compromise necessary.
2. Secondly, false teachers are characterized by selfishness.  They tend to be self-centered.  They are concerned for their own comfort.  They are concerned for their own popularity.  They are concerned for their own prosperity.  In the end, it’s all about money, fame, and prestige and notoriety equals an increased bank account.  They are in it for the money and the personal material benefits that they can gain as they endeavor to feed their selfish desires.
3. Thirdly, They are characterized by deception.  They usually can weave a very sophisticated web of deception in their teaching because they tend to be articulate, if they’re going to be successful, and they endeavor to engage other people to aid them in their deceitful enterprise which gives it the, sort of, façade of credibility.
4. They’re not only proud and selfish and deceptive, but [fourthly] they’re irreverent.  If there’s anything that sort of dominates in my thinking about false teachers, it is their lack of reverence.  They have absolutely no regard for God.  The fact that they would go against God, that they would elevate themselves the way they do, that they would pervert the truth indicates their utter lack of reverence.  They have little, if any, regard for God, His Word, His truth, His glory, His honor…
5. Finally, they are spiritually destructive.  They seek to use people; they seek to abuse people.  They seek to lead people into error, which destroys them—into sin, which pollutes them. 
So, as you look at false teachers with regard to the world, they are proud and they seek fame and popularity.  With regard to themselves, they are self-centered, selfish, self-aggrandizing, self-gratifying.  With regard to the nature of their ministry, they are dishonest and deceptive and lack integrity.  With regard to God, they are utterly irreverent; in fact, they are sometimes blasphemous.  And, with regard to the people that they influence, they are spiritually destructive. So, their relationship to the world, their relationship to the ministry, their relationship to themselves, their relationship to God, their relationship to their people all reflects the deviation of their hearts.  John F. MacArthur Jr.,
Concerns of a True Pastor: Humility and Selflessness, 1998

Today's preachers along with some who have passed on whose ministry or teachings continue, who are either teaching a false doctrine or are using the Doctrine of our Lord Jesus Christ for the benefit of their own selfishness and gain. Some of these preachers lay claim that Jesus is the only way to Heaven (and they would be right), but at the same time, they preach that personal gain is the main message.  There are many different activities out there by some of these people and we would suggest that you study our Articles Page to discover some of what is going on in today's Churches. - FWM

Forgotten !   The Word of God (the Bible) seems to have been forgotten by the majority of preachers today.  You can visit most any Church today and learn all about how to live a "good" life.  How to "live" it now.  How to turn your tithes into instant gain.  How to get along with other people.  How to get your "best" life now!  BUT, very seldom will you hear anything about Repentance, Salvation, Following Jesus, Humbling yourself before the Lord, or SIN.  This Ministry is devoted to bringing to all peoples, the understanding of the Apostasy and manipulation of the Gospel Message found in our Churches today.

Ezekiel 33:1-6
Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
