The Apostasy of David Jeremiah

The latest is that David Jeremiah is joining other heretics at the Jumpstart conference in May 2016, which includes Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen.

But this is not the first problem Jeremiah has had. He's been on the apostasy trajectory. The End blog has listed this journey of apostasy, not the least of which is when Jeremiah showed up on TBN teaching the health-wealth false gospel. But there's more. He joined Roman Catholic mystics Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnet to push their "new tv show A.D. and Jeremiah's new companion book based on the biblical book of Acts. The interview was held on March 12, 2015 at the church." 

Additionally Jeremiah reads from his own book in the pulpit at his church. This is total arrogance and certainly not feeding the sheep the only food that will benefit their souls: Scripture. 

Lighthouse Trails Research noted:

David Jeremiah’s 2003/2005 book, Life Wide Open, has a subtitle of “Unleashing the Power of a Passionate Life.” In the introduction of the book, Jeremiah tells readers that “A Small handful among us have discovered what the rest of us would pay dearly to know: How can we bring real, living excitement into this life?” Jeremiah goes on to tell readers that “This book is a map to the life of passion and purpose, the life wide open…”  (p. xii) Who are these small handful of people who have discovered the secret? Well according to Jeremiah’s book, his list includes Rick Warren, contemplative, feminine spiritualist Sue Monk Kidd (When the Heart Waits), contemplative Calvin Miller (Into the Depths of God), Buddhist sympathizer Peter Senge (The Fifth Discipline), emerging church leader Erwin McManus, contemplative Michael Card, and Brother Lawrence (Practicing the Presence of God).
Also, Lighthouse Trails Research found that David Jeremiah had Emergent John Ortberg preach at his church. LTR explains:

John Ortberg has been a major contemplative advocate for many years. It was he and Ruth Haley Barton (trained at Shalem Institute) who put together the spiritual formation (i.e., contemplative prayer) curriculum for Willow Creek a number of years ago. What’s more, in a book that Barton and Ortberg co-authored, An Ordinary Day with Jesus, they tell readers to practice lectio divina (what they describe as a slow meditative practice) and to repeat a word in a mantra-like fashion. They also include panentheist Tilden Edwards (along with other contemplatives) in their additional resources section of that book.

2Jn 1:9  Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
2Jn 1:10  If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, 
2Jn 1:11  for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.

I've read the advertisement for Jumpstart but I didn't see David Jeremiah's name or his picture, I found it odd for a man of such statue in the Christian community whose name and picture nowhere to be found.
Can you give more proof of what you're saying?

There are many more of these issues, and I’m sure you could go online and do just a little bit of digging and even more. On his very website, he admits he will be at Jumpstart Experience 2016.

It was widely reported. If he backed out, that would be interesting indeed.

As you can see from my article however, that Jeremiah's been pulpit fellowshipping with false teachers for a while now. He hasn't been sound.

Jennifer Bynum said...

Thank you so much, it wasn't that I disagreed or disbelieved, I've been watching him quite sometime, I just didn't hear him mentioned on that particular site.
I found his picture blaring on another site with the same 'Jumpstart Apostates' you'd mentioned.
Thank you again, Jennifer

You are so welcome Jennifer.

Please look at Lighthouse Trails online discernment ministry where they reveal Jeremiah's strange support of false teachers, occultics and Catholic contemplative prayer.
