The credentials of “Dr” Phil
Before reading the below article, please read the folllowing article.
To this date we are not familiar with Phil Pringle gaining any further theological qualifications.
Pringle says “people will heap up teaching because [their] ears [are] itching to hear the Word”?
There are some things that Phil Pringle does that are either flat out stupid or deliberately deceitful.
Here is a good example of Phil Pringle encouraging the church to use Satan’s church growth strategies.
Pringle has done some something similar again just recently. You know someone is a false teacher when they twist God’s Word on false teachers.
To prepare you for this piece, we will put up a few different translations just in case C3s critics think it is us condemning Phil Pringle.
God says in His Word:
For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. New International Version
For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. New Living Translation
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, English Standard Version
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, New American Standard Bible
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; King James Bible
Now that you’ve read the scripture, ask yourself these questions:
- How do you think Phil Pringle will twist this scripture?
- Do you think Paul the Apostle wants us to be not only hearers of false teachers but doers of their false teaching?
Well here is Phil Pringle teaching how a person in Christ is a prepared person. Isn’t Phil Pringle fulfilling the above scripture accurately? There is only one scripture used which he twists and then proceeds to teach those with itching ears everything of the world but not “sound doctrine”.
Paul says in the last days people will heap up teaching because they ears itching to hear the Word (2 Tim 4:3). However it is doing the Word that builds our lives, not just hearing it.
The person in Christ is a prepared person. They get ready. They’re set for everything. Nothing will move them because they’re settled firmly upon Jesus Christ, the rock. They’re doers of the Word, not just hearers only.
In Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, Robert T Kiyosaki, says, ‘You are either prepared or you’re not. You’re either in position or you’re not. If you’re prepared, there is a deal of a lifetime being presented to you every day of your life.’
Benjamin Disraeli, the British Prime Minister in the late eighteen-hundreds declared ‘The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.’
Louis Pasteur also of the late eighteen-hundreds , the famous French chemist and biologist and inventor of pasteurization and various vaccines, also understood the power of preparation – ‘Chance favours the prepared mind.’
See you in church!
