Is Pastor Henry W. Wright or Wrong

If you have a concern about this ministry you have every right to be.  He starts out sounding biblical but he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.   You may want to read the web article “A Review of: A More Excellent Way by Henry Wright”  written by Hampton Keathley IV, TH.M. If you don’t know when the WORD is being  properly divided, Henry will totally lead you astray.  I have more information if you are interested.

      i couldn’t agree more with sandy, she is right. thank you for your words of insight. if we had to reason with wrightiswrong – confusion, too much confusion, too much as they right right. ministries are to encourage us, my bible is the best book and be in health has helped me go back to the Bible and have my heart cleansed and all the rubbish thrown away. amen amen I praise the name of Jesus Christ.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        It is a blessing to be encouraged. The bible is the BEST book! I’m thankful that you are back into your bible. I pray that you will be diligent in Studying to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). If you get all your information from one source (Henry Wright) you will never know if you are walking in the truth or walking in deception. As you are biased against anything I have to share with you, I pray that, if you are free to think for yourself, you would research what the bible and other great men of faith have to say about curses, generational sin, matriarchal witches, blocks to healing and so. Blessings!

        oh no, i don’t source only henry wright, I read many christian books now but my best book is the Bible, i love the Bible. i pray to God all the time to change me and to show me His better ways. thats why i was lead to henry wright to encourage my family more. i had deep problems in my family after my salvation and bondages would not leave me. through praying and breaking generational curses i am free praise God from whom all blessings flow. i now help many others to be abundant and victorious and live the principles of .the Holy Bible. i thank God for Be In Health and other good ministries helping people as millions are reached with the message about Jesus.

        to let you all know that I had been searching in desperation for help – crying out to God of the Heavens for a breakthrough for my life. In 2010 I stumbled on and after reading the book “A more Excellent Way” I joined and completed for my life online which has absolutely been a God send for my life. It made me turn to our Father God for every help and my life has been delivered from the enemy’s despair and depression. It made me turn back to the reality of God’s word to deal with deep issues in my life. It made me look at the faults inside me and fix up any problems I had with others. It made me look to God NOT HENRY WRIGHT. It has been wonderful and don’t reply to me telling me you are gravely concerned for my connections to this ministry. I haven’t allowed anyone to control me, God is in control in Jesus name. I have found though over the years that certain people find it hard to face up to their own problems and blame others – it is a common problem. You are far from perfect and I would say get off this thing against Henry Wright as God is in control of him – worry about yourself and helping others to be set free. Some of these comments on here are directly from the pit of hell. Change yourself and you might realise a hope for restoration instead of bitterness and judgments. I can assure you Henry Wright certainly seeks the face of God and he is changing every day – desperately seek the face of God and do something for God’s kingdom – stop destroying it!!! there are numerous testimonies of hope and healing through the ministry of Be In Health and I am very certain that Henry Wright is a believer in Christ Jesus and I’ve heard him say over and over that he continues to seek the Lord for change in his own life. I have applied the principles he has taught for deep change and repentance of issues in my life that I hadn’t realised were in the Bible. After doing For my life online, I realised I still had a long way to go. You guys have a long way to go – a long way. Stop cursing and judging and look within yourselves and you will go a long way in your christian journey. STOP! STOP! Look deeply within yourselves and ask the Lord to “search my heart O God” – Look, its plain – Henry Wright is in a leadership position and you guys don’t like him because he spells it out how it should be and how all Pastors should be preaching from their platforms” Satan doesn’t want any christians knowing they can defeat jealousy and bitterness and judgments etc etc in their lives. thats why you critics don’t like him. You are like the pharasees – hypocrites!! I’ve never known what should be christians setting up a blog to tear a man to the ground. Something I have learnt is this – THE DEVIL ACCUSES (HE ACCUSES BECAUSE HE KNOWS IT CONDEMNS AND INTIMIDATES US – IT KNOCKS US TO THE GROUND), BUT CONVICTION IS WHEN GOD CONVICTS US OF OUR NEED OF HIM – IT MAY KNOCK US SOMETIMES, BUT HE IS GENTLE AND ALLOWS US TO COME BACK THROUGH CONVICTION. Allow God to work in Henry Wright and you can be certain He is. You poor people with nothing else better to do than absolutely accuse and judge. that is what you are doing. may God arise and shine truth to your eyes. I praise God for the Ministry of Be In Health as it has been a great inspiration and help as I applied the principles he had taught. I did it that was all – I got down on my knees before a Holy God and cried – literally cried for Him to take away the deep pain of rejection and despair. I did it day after day until it was totally released in Jesus name all praise to our Heavenly Father. AMEN!!!! Plus much more encouragement from this ministry – I applied the biblical steps to my life and WOW! Healing and Set Free by the power of our precious Holy Spirit. Be blessed and be made whole and completely free in Christ.

        DON’T BE.

        We’re already free and healed in Christ.

        Get away from me with your pleas to make me accept Rev. Wrong’s horrid, demonic teachings.

        I rebuke and renounce your EXPERIENCE-based testimony of his baloney, and reject it forever.


      • Robert W. Watts Says:

        It is so sad that Jesus is in need of so much help! Poor Jesus, He just needs all of these people to help Him be God. Oh yes, “Confess your sins one to another,..” that is a lifelong process and negates His command to go. What is it about Go that is so difficult.

        Matthew 25:31-46 The man who was healed with mud on his eye is still beating the man who was healed by multiple prayers and the starving folk of the world look on in wonder.

        Please beat each other up. Create more demonationns and rightly divide the word of God till we all stand and worship God but do nothing for the poor.

        What’s that? You say that you went to a conference and it encouraged you to deny yourself, to live frugally and do more to alleviate oppression? Certainly not in the USA.

        Please, by all means, seek benifit for your self, I mean, who is our neighbor anyway?

        Feel good. Join the crowd. Many will cry out in that day, Lord, Lord.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Thank you for expressing your views on this blog. May I response to you in hopefully a loving and truthful way. When you say that we are “far from perfect”, you are absolutely correct. We are far from perfect. I sincerely hope we never hinted that we were near perfection. We all realized we fall way short of the glory of God. Our journey will not be perfected here on earth and never by our own power. It’s not our doing. It is only by the work of Jesus Christ perfect sacrifice that will be able to approach the thorn of God sinless. You say we are judging mean condemning. We are not condemning but trying to discern God’s truth as it is written in the bible. We are not out to destroy God’s kingdom by questioning the practice of Henry Wright. We know that we are powerless against God. God is also controlling this blog. If God did not want this blog to be here it definite would not be. We are trying to be good Bereans and testing everything preachers say to the word of God and we find that Henry falls short of the truth. It is not that “Henry spells it out how it should be” but that he is misleading people about what the bible says that concerns us.

        Those things that you “hadn’t realized were in the Bible” – are they really in the bible or are they things that Henry Wright has made up?
        You ask us to stop cursing and judging. Please know that the blessing and cursing the Henry teaches is also not biblical. This is just one area that Henry has missed the mark as far as true biblical teaching. Please test it out for yourself.

        1.There is not a single example anywhere in the Bible of someone breaking a curse in any way. There are no examples of someone attempting to break a curse either.
        2. The Bible does not contain the phrase breaking a curse or any similar phrase, either that would indicate that curses can be broken .
        3. Christ does not teach or demonstrate the need of breaking curses anywhere in the Gospels. Christ simply ministers healing and cast out demons without this kind of preparation. This is what the disciples knew that perhaps we don’t know.
        4. The 12 apostles, the apostle Paul or any other writer of the New Testament does not teach or demonstrate the need to break curses. They simply minister healing and deliverance to people without this kind of preparation.
        5. The New Testament consistently teaches that believers are blessed and does not even hint that they are cursed in any way.
        6. When we survey every verse in the New Testament that uses a form of the word curse, not a single one even hints that Christians might have a problem with curses.
        7. Galatians 3:13-14 is the one passage that connects Christ’s sacrifice with curses. It says nothing about breaking curses and is speaking specifically about the curse of the Law of Moses that was spoken by God. There is nothing in this passage or any other about breaking the so-called curses that people might speak.

        Commandments in the Law of Moses . This is the first and second commandment s in that passage: Exodus 20:1-6 Then God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing loving kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments . What specific iniquity is God speaking about? Idolatry . This so-called curse is not attached to any other kinds of sin. Who is God going to visit iniquity upon their decedents ? God is going to punish those Jews living under the Law of Moses who practice idolatry and who hate God. No one else.

        How will this so-called curse work out? Those Jewish idolaters who hate God will have children who practice idolatry and will hate God. This so-called curse does not affect anyone else.

        Important Points to Consider about this passage :
        1. No sincere Christian today should be living under the law of Moses. They should be living by grace in Jesus Christ in the New Covenant not the Law of Moses.
        2. No sincere Christian is making idols and practicing idolatry. The passage does not allow Christian spiritualization of the sin of idolatry. It is speaking literally about making and worshiping physical idols.
        3. No real Christian hates God. These ideas are mutually exclusive. You can’t be a follower of Christ and hate God at the same time. This passage does not apply to practicing Christians in any way.
        4. This passage says that God is showing loving kindness to thousands who serve and love Him in the Law of Moses. How much more is this true in the New Covenant.
        5. This passage does not say that this so-called generational curse can be broken . This passage does not use the word curse either. Only repentance from idolatry would change God’s mind. Breaking this curse is certainly not a solution that this passage offers.

        Henry also has a misconception of generational sins. If you want to know the truth about what the bible says about generational sins, than please ask me and I’ll gladly show you in God’s word what God says!

        Hope this helps. Warmest regards and the love of Christ Jesus be with you.

      • RJ Says:

        Thank you for your Biblical, loving resonse. I heard it said that we should judge our Experiences by God’s Word, instead of God’s Word by our Experience. If our Experience doesn’t line up, then we must throw it out and admit we were deceived. I sure understand now why Jesus called us sheep.

      • RJ Says:

        I am not judging Henry for his salvation or his sincerity. We are commanded throughout scripture to discern. This is a discernment based on the truths of God’s Word. I shared my testimony once on this blog, only to warn others who would fall into the confusion that this ministry brings. The doctrines are not Biblical. You tell people not to judge what you wrote, yet you accuse those on this blog of not being as healthy as you. Woe to you for preaching another gospel then the one that Paul brought! The spiritual warfare, dominion theology, word of faith, and binding of Satan that this ministry teaches are not in accordance with the Word of God.

        I can tell you love the Lord, and I am glad you were found healing in Jesus. I also agree that some posts on here are mean spirited. But, the false teachings are the issue here. Just read through the NT and you will see it is 75% combating false and distorted doctrines.

        We only need the cross. We are to find REST in Him. This ministry is not about REST! The armor we are to put on is all Christ. He does the battle in the spirit realm for us. He defeated Satan already, “IT IS FINISHED” He declared. We just have to choose to accept that fact! Most of the techniques used in BeinHealth are simply psychological. You are attributing emotions to breakthroughs in the spirit realm. Not once in the Bible are people told a psychobabal method of Walking Out their healing. When the Son sets you free you are free indeed.

        Bottom Line: It is actually your repentance and faith in God that set you free PERIOD!! There is no other way!

      • Robert W. Watts Says:

        um… lemeee see. I go into a village in the mountains. A girl is bit by a snake. They catch the snake, pop its head off and drink the bile. They say that in this way the venom will not kill the girl and the rest of the tribe will not be effected by the spirits.

        Sometimes she dies, sometimes not but you see, I am there to tell them about Jesus. He came, sacrificed himself and died once and for all for our sins. If you don’t believe that, it neither changes my mission or Jesus. It is there and if you want to wright or copeland or do the funky chicken and feel better, whatever, that is fine. I believe that when Jesus comes back, he will hold us accountable for what we did with so great a salvation.

        You wear a cross, or read “that” version of the Bible. You sing 7/11 songs, seven songs 11 times each; Fine. You wear your shirt backwards or have tatoos or whatever. A policeman is a policeman because he does policeman things. A fireman is judged by his service and work, but Most Western Christians try to go to another conference and be better. Better at what?

        When it is you or your children, do you call for help when you are in need? And if they tell you something and you feel better, don’t you want to be healed? Healed for what?

        bbb’s Bodies, Bricks and Bucks people are those that make a living off Christ. They will entice you to attend seminars to feel good. Drink snake pee, if you want. Do the funky chicken and babble while making noises if you choose. Consume endless hours in study but please, the world is dying.

        When your family or children or friends need help, you will not get it from the exestentialists. you will get it from soldiers who work with their hands and hearts to do something.

        I do not serve God because it feels good, often it doesn’t. I serve God because Jesus died for me. What less could I do for Him. And by the way, if you need Mary to get to heaven, that is fine with me too, just grab that sack of wawa mum and lets feed the starving kids.

        By the way, lets not argue about this, lets do this thing called Christian. The reason they got their name is cuz they did weird things, like loving their enemies and doing good to others.

        Quote from Concerned Concerned ” You are like the pharasees – hypocrites!! I’ve never known what should be christians setting up a blog to tear a man to the ground.”

        Pharisees were known for a few things; hypocrisy, building a heavy burden on others they would not carry themselves or help carry and a complete misinterpretation of the scripture and old Testament Law that nullified God’s intent and ultimate purpose in presenting it. I must ask you look for planks in your own eye before attacking others here on this site. Calling someone into Scriptural accountability is never an attack on the individual and would never be perceived as an attack by someone submitted to the leadership of the Holy Spirit and someone who acknowledges the Scripture as the sole authority over doctrinal beliefs. What is being challenged (not an attack on a person) is significant misrepresentation of Biblical Scriptural truth. This can never be taken lightly by either party and has no place for personal attacks on persons. Strangely the only real attacks I have seen so far come from those claiming they or Henry Wright is being attacked. Unfortunately these are false accusations being made by those who have not been attacked but have instead received Biblical based correction and a call to accountability.

        1. No attacks of any kind are being made against pastor Wright. Without any personal knowledge of the man or his character I will assume he is very sincere and passionate about what he believes but according to Scripture many or most of this man’s teachings/beliefs are in contradiction with the Bible. Personally I was hoping these teaching were true and would offer hope and breakthroughs of healing in my life. No matter how much I want to be healed I cannot and will not subvert the gospel of Jesus Christ to suit my own desires. Henry Wright is NOT the focus of this blog and forum but rather the correct interpretation of Scripture. Rightly pointing out that Henry Wright’s teachings are in Biblical contradiction is not an attack on the man.

        2. What is being challenged and brought into the light of God’s word are false non Biblical teachings within the book A More Excellent Way and some personal experiences have also been shared. Some report good experiences and release that are also known to be often related to psychosomatic illnesses. Others have reported very negative experiences and have even reported having their families separated because some of the family rightly did not believe Henry Wright’s teachings were Biblically based. That is classic cult leader like behavior and separating families because they don’t agree with your own personal interpretation is NOT the fruit of the Holy Spirit or of a balanced pastor. If these reports are true there is NO defense for that behavior. Yes getting someone out of an abusive relationship is Biblically supported but the ultimate goal is toward safe reconciliation when possible.

        I started reading the book with the mindset a former pastor had shared regarding reading books about the Bible or particular personal insights…”Eat the meat and spit out the bones”.

        Unfortunately I am finding a 90% bone to meat ratio based on Scripture being taken out of context and especially in light of New Testament truths. Many of Henry Wrights positions directly contradict the recorded spoken words and teachings of Jesus. Much of what Mr Wright is teaching is indeed preaching another gospel than that of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. That may not be his intention and I will never attempt to judge his intention. Discerning the fruit and false teachings of a man or organization however has nothing to do with judging a man’s intent. We are indeed called to discern and rightly divide the word of truth. Don’t get the two confused.

        3. Yes human nature is often prone to blaming others and failing to self examine motives of the heart and taking responsibility for our decisions. This is well covered in Celebrate Recovery classes as well as other 12 step programs dealing with behavioral issues. No one is arguing against those points that I can tell however those principles are also often very effective in completely secular settings. They do overlap into both spiritual and psychological dynamics but they are based on the study of human nature.

        4. No where in the New Testament that I recall did Jesus or the disciples first require anyone who was healed to deal with “blocks to healing” or even called into repentance until after they were healed. It sometimes involved faith on the part of an individual however Jesus very clearly told the Pharisees that the blind man they pointed out to him was not blind because of sin on anyone’s part….not the man’s own sin, not his parents sin i.e. “generational curses”. In another healing by Jesus the man was healed without the discussion of sin or repentance at all. Later the man appeared in the temple and only AFTER he had received healing did Jesus instruct the man later in the temple to sin no more (a call to repentance). Yes there were old Testament covenants that connected sin behavior to sickness to specific people in specific situations however in the New Testament Jesus Himself fulfilled the law on our behalf while also receiving the wrath of judgement for our sins.

        The single and only New Testament reference connecting unrighteous behaviors to sickness is related to taking the Lord’s Supper without examining themselves. The specific behaviors they are to examine themselves for are detailed in 1 Cor 11:17-20. This is the context for 1 Cor 11:27-30 and it involves examining how we treat others in the body of Christ, selfishness and drunkeness in the House of the Lord. This in turn reveals things in our heart that may need a deeper submission, repentance and correction.

        Praise “Jesus” and “God” all you want, but if Rev. Wright preaches another “gospel” , then it is not Yahushua haMashiach nor Yahoveh Elohim Adonai that you worship.

        I have lost half of my family (two of my kids, the YOUNGER ones [ages 4 and 11]. . . and my WIFE) to this cult. My two eldest children (aged 17 and 15) chose to escape on their own, praise Yah !

        Her cult pastor supposedly YAWNED out a “demon of rejection” at one of R. Wright’s conferences, then came back to the congregation and, starting with me, . . . “you all must be delivered from the Demon of Rejection!” (everyone has it, supposedly?).

        This “PASTOR” had been PREACHING, TEACHING, LEADING, COUNSELING, MINISTERING for many years in this Jellowship . . . WITH a “Demon of Rejection” apparently possessing him! What?!

        My wife and I have attended there for my Life program twice and their marriage seminar once. We have found Pastor Henry and Donna to be very thoughtful caring and loving people. The same I would say for those who teach your classes. Well I’m sure it’s controversial within Christianity due to the Deliverance and charismatic nature which some areas of Christianity don’t see the same comma I found there to be a strong scriptural basis for their teaching which was primarily teaching discernment between Good and Evil and helping want to walk in righteousness and to know what it is. Most of their teaching revolved around certain topics giving a greater understanding of what those are such as envy and jealousy Kama accusation Kama unforgiveness, living in fear understanding the love of Father God and aspects of occultism and our culture. They give the attendee the opportunity to learn and see where they have walked in these ways an opportunity to repent and private. Both my wife and I did receive healing for many ailments some of which we have been told there was no healing possible. We were thrilled to say the least. We also saw others you had a wonderful transformation during the course of the week. Does everyone get healed? No. Did we get healed from everything? No. However we found a Ministry that has a True Heart to see people set free and healed and yes they do sell a lot of literature because it takes an enormous amount of money to run the programs and a lot of the money raised to do that comes from the literature sales I have read the books and listen to the CDs over and over again always testing them against my understanding of the word. I have found that in my life the Lord has used it mightily to teach me more of his word about his ways and to live my life into walking a righteous life. I think each one is it to them self to go and listen first hand to be Berean and to decide if they think it’s legit or off balance. They do offer a free week call the City of Refuge as their gift back to God a tithe of sorts each December. The books I think are more transcriptions of sermons than they are a book written to be in book format. So they do come across somewhat disjointed and not as well thought-out as one might be used to in a theology book. Anyway just my two cents. I went very skeptical and I found it to be very much a work of the Lord. Of course each person should use their own discernment and follow their conscience to make sure they’re walking in faith before the Lord and such a time as we live where there such Crazy doctrines in the body of Christ.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Please take this warning seriously. If you are not a bible scholar Henry will be able to deceive you. His area of study is psychology and he knows how to twist scripture. Here are a few of my notes: II. The Title of the Book is problematic for according to scripture. A More Excellent Way is not disease eradication but more love (charity).

        III. Henry Wright’s book –
        A. Jumps from one topic to confuse the reader of listener.
        B. The numerous verses quoted makes one assume that Wright’s teaching are biblical. Henry does not divide the word with integrity.
        C. Henry repeats his points or scriptures over and over – a psychological technique which leads people to believe that what he is saying is the truth. It reminds me of how hypnosis is induced?
        D. He throws in many verses that don’t relate to the topic to appear Biblical.
        E. Many verses are totally out of context and not explained in God’s intended light.
        E. This book could have been edited many times over by now. The excuse that is it a collection of recorded presentation is just an excuse to continue with deception.

        III. Henry Wright Personally
        A. No credential.-
        1. A well intentioned surgeon can still kill you if his skills are poor! Just as a pastor without skills can lead any indiscriminate flock astray.
        2. P 9 I am a servant of the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. No man has taught me, but He has taught me. (I too am a servant of God and He is teaching me daily as well but for pastoring, learning proper hermeneutics is essential. If you have not studied how to operate please don’t practice on me.)
        3. Henry: In my later years – you noticed I said, “Later year…” I dedicated my life to God and the study of the Scriptures. (Formal study would have been advisable since you started so late. )
        B. No medical knowledge and no seminary work -Henry was a premedical major in college. – (So was I and I don’t claim to be a pastor nor a doctor!)
        1.. Gives incorrect medical information. ( I have listed a few and do not wish to correct Henry on all 60 plus diseases he has targeted. Please check each one out for youself)
        a. p. 90-91According to Henry the cause of aneurysms is anger and rage. But the medical community says that there are various causes, listed below, which can lead to aneurysms include the following. Please note that anger and rage are not mentioned!
        1. Atherosclerosis: On aging, a sticky substance called plaque builds up in the inside walls of the arteries and over a period of time excess plaque causes the aorta to harden and narrow the inside of arteries, thus weakening and damaging the arterial walls. This damaged portion of artery can stretch or “balloon” due to blood pressure inside the artery leading to aneurysm.
        2. Hypertension (high blood pressure)
        3. Deep wounds, injuries or infections to blood vessels.
        4. High cholesterol content in the blood.
        5. Inherited disease such as Marfan syndrome (Marfan syndrome affects the body’s connective tissue causing the people to have long bones and flexible joints).
        6. Infections such as untreated Syphilis (a sexually transmitted disease), Vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) and Tuberculosis can cause aneurysms.
        7. A severe traumatic fall or car accident can cause thoracic aortic aneurysm.
        b. P. 90, 156 Henry says You know what the Word says, don’t you, about fear and heart attacks then he quotes. Luke 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. In context, Jesus foretells the destruction of the temple and of Jerusalem—He tells of the signs to precede his Second Coming, and gives the parable of the fig tree. If we don’t have fear at the might works of God than we are not Christians. This verse has nothing to do with fear and heart attacks but of the awesomeness of Jesus’ second coming!
        c. Blood clots can be caused by several different kinds of diseases or situations. Again anger and rage are not mentioned by the medical community, as stated by Henry. the most common problem is narrowing of the arteries (major blood vessels coming from the heart) in the neck or head. This is most often caused by the gradual buildup of fat, cholesterol (a waxy substance found in the blood) and/or calcium in the arteries. The arteries can become too narrow or break, allowing blood cells to collect and form blood clots. These blood clots can block the artery where they form, or can move and become trapped in arteries closer to the brain. Another cause of stroke is blood clots in the heart, which can occur as a result of a fast, uneven heartbeat. This is called atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation can cause the blood to flow poorly and form clots that can travel to the brain and cause a stroke. Other causes include the use of certain “street” drugs, injury to the blood vessels of the neck, or health problems, which cause the blood to clot too much.
        d. p. 90 Henry basic cause of hemorrhoids is anger and rage. Causes of hemorrhoids by Mayo Clinic1 The veins around your anus tend to stretch under pressure and may bulge or swell. Swollen veins — hemorrhoids — can develop from an increase in pressure in the lower rectum. Factors that might cause increased pressure include: Straining during bowel movements. |Sitting for long periods of time on the toilet. Chronic diarrhea or constipation. Obesity, Pregnancy , Anal intercourse, It’s also possible to inherit a tendency to develop hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are more likely as you get older because the tissues that support the veins in your rectum and anus can weaken and stretch with aging. Anger and rage are not even mentioned.
        e. P. 156 Henry: The information continues to state that stress(fear and anxiety) which produces constriction of vessel walls is a common cause of Angina. (The leading causes of Angina include: Aging, High blood pressure, Cigarette smoking, High blood cholesterol, Being overweight, Lack of exercise, Family history of angina or heart attack at a young age, Diabetes. Notice that stress, ear and anxiety are not mentioned!)
        f. p. 90 Henry says: I can go to a pathophysiology text and find one of the basic causes for most heart attack is fear and anxiety, A 2004 study says that previously, researchers thought that only about half of heart attacks were explained by risk factors such as smoking or cholesterol. But now they say that the cause of almost all heart attacks can be pinpointed to one or more of the following: Smoking, Abnormal cholesterol , Diabetes, High blood pressure, stress , Abdominal obesity, Sedentary lifestyle, Eating too few fruits and vegetables, Abstaining from alcohol. (Stress is only one factor! Please tell the whole story!)
        g. P. 161 Even though the medical community now associates autoimmune diseases (including lupus, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis) with fear, anxiety, and stress, I have come to the conclusion that most autoimmune diseases are primarily the result of an unloving spirit producing feeling of not being loved, not being accepted, self-rejection, self-hatred, and self-bitterness coupled with guilt. In fact, it could be said that autoimmune diseases are primarily a self-hatred disease with a fear-anxiety-stress rider attached them. (What a bunch of bologna! Please site your evidence for your claim. 1- I found not correlation with what Henry said and what the medical community believes! 2- are the options for the cause broad enough? If you believe all this, I have a piece of property I’d love to sell you!)
        h. P. 161 The medical community has recently found a bacterial cause for ulcers. But Henry says I’m not convinced that the bacteria causes ulcers. He’s convinced that it is bacteria along with fear, anxiety and stress. (Humm… Should I trust my doctor or Henry?)
        2. Henry lacks knowledge about correct hermeneutics
        3. Does not divide the words correctly – study it for yourself

        D. Over exaggerates and overstates his points:
        1. P. 14 God has used me to heal more females than you can imagine.
        2. P. 29 I think the Church has come to a place where they have overplayed grace and mercy to the point that he say, “Because you are in covenant, you can sin like the devil and there are no consequences. (I personally don’t know any churches like this.)
        3. P. 35 I Isaiah 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. I(Henry)say restore! I stand boldly before God and all men, and I say restore those who are in prison houses and are a prey to the beast of the field. I take a stand; I put my foot down and I say, let’s go for the win. (From the context we find that the passage is talking about how Jesus will come and restore the disobedient servant the Jewish nation – Isreal. Mighty presumptive of Henry to take the role of Jesus.)
        4. P. 87 I go over the cliff all over America, and I pull them(the sheep) up to save their lives. All over America, I find them abandoned by the church, by leaders, by their families. OR is it that people have abandoned churches , leaders and families to go their own way?
        5. When you say incurable, you have made the devil greater than God. (Please don’t put words or thought into my mouth)
        E. Disrespectful when talking about God and Satan
        1. P. 2 I went to God one day and said, “You’d better talk to me boss…You’d better show me a little more fruit…I’m not speaking for You if my words are not being honored, because that is fraud”)
        2. What’s the worst thing that can happen to you? Die and go to heaven; so what’s your problem? God doesn’t need you in heaven. You are of no earthly good if you go to heaven prematurely. The Lord doesn’t need you there. If you get there too soon, He’d going to ask you, “What are you doing here?” God says, “I wanted to you down there in your generation to do something for Me. I don’t need you here. I have work for you. Everybody is so much in ahurry to get to heave. You old lazy thing, you; get a grip!

    • carli durieux Says:

      There seems to be such confusion about godly healing. I am sure there is some value in H Wright’s considerations of the causes for different diseases and maybe it is beneficial to look at that when confronted with illness. However, I do believe that in every case of especially serious sickness or chronic conditions one needs to speak to God and ask his word on this specific situation. You would be amazed at how true and to the point He is. There is never in God’s world a one shoe fits all response, although general guidelines are useful. In one situation, what I heard was that it was a sickness unto death. Incidently, she did fit Wright’s profile for the specific illness. In another instance, I believe that my friend died while others were praying for her healing, because she was tired of the fight and did not want to carry on. God apparently respected her wishes and heart more than her eager friends whom she did find were putting her in their box of how things should be done. Then I know a lady who was healed of intestinal cancer after the congregation prayed for her during communion.Her medical records confirmed the healing a few days later. A young student had leukaemia.He believed that God gave him a word that he would be healed. Other young folk from the congregation took him to task about coming to hospital and submitting to medical treatment as they saw his actions as unbelief. He said to me.”God said He would heal me, but not in what manner. So I am not refusing medical treatment.” He had a bone marrow transplant and were healed.Maybe he would have died if he presumptiously assumed that meant not submitting to trearment. I saluted his maturity in not jumping to conclusions on God’s ways. Christians pay more dearly for presumption than we think.In ANY situation. Ask God What the strategy should be. Then fight the fight according to what he gives YOU both in the physical and the spiritual. Believe me, that is an adventure with God and have been the greatest awe inspiring chapters of God’s greatness in my life. Pray what God gives you. Check with others, but stay responsible for your own decisions. Do not be presumptious! It can cost you dearly.I also payed for presumption. Seek His response and walk in responsible faith. I see that with my clients too daily. If you do that, God will be glorified and you see Him act! Carli

    I went to Henry Wright’s church back in 1999, and stayed for six months. Back then you could stay there at the old school or campground indefinetly. I went to be healed of fibromyalgia. When I came home I was so devastated and brainwashed and much sicker then when I arrived there. I ended up in a psychiatriac ward in Cincinnati, OH. Also so heartbroken because I put my all into his teachings. He would warn us during church services that some of us would turn against him , and that bad things would happen to us for that. Thank you for this website, I have prayed for eleven years to make some sense out of this, and still feel confused and wounded by my experience there. EXPOSE HIM!!!!

    • sandy Says:

      you cannot blame Pastor Henry Wright 11yrs later for you own journey when we are all accountable for our own progress. we are encouraged in Gods word to move ahead past all the setbacks of life and journey forward, and if after 11yrs you still blame pastor Henry Wright and continue to hold him in a box there is something very wrong. that is why everything he encourages to rid our junk may cause a transition period, but the outcome and fruit of it is awesome. if there is no fruit, something is missing. in 11yrs the work of Be In Health has brought many to the realisation of junk and a real salvation and miraculous healings to their lives. thousands…thousands… he doesn’t preach hype -he preaches the real word of God to encourage people to go to our Heavenly Father Doctor and allow him to perform surgery on our lives to make anew -get to your real ‘sin’ issues -your junk -your judgements -because when we do this -we we allow the Holy Spirit to do this work in us, mighty results lay in front of our eyes -it might take a while to see much fruit, but the pain is worth it all. Halleluyah. you know -like the potter and the clay -the thumping and in the hot oven -a bit hard to handle, but the change process is worth it.

      • Cindy Says:

        I do have a beautiful heart, and God knows that, and that is all that matters to me. We will all stand before God on judgement day, and I am not afraid, because I know what I write is the truth. If only one person is saved from this cult, then it it all worth it. No one has answered why Henry has taken away Iren’s girls and grandchild from her life. That woman greives everyday for her children. Every cult starts with the truth, to get your attention. Why does everyone that says they are healed always praise Henry’s teachings? They should be praising God. You will get into big trouble when people are always giving man the praise and not God first . As for humbleness, people have told me that I am the most humble person they have ever met. You do not even know me, and yet you judge me. I have repented of every sin, and all of my ancestors sins. But you see, still it takes the blood of Jesus Christ and his suffering on the cross to get me into heaven. Jesus Is Lord!!! I love Him and give Him the Glory for everything in my life. My thoughts are continually on Him. Yet, His word says that my righteousness are as filthy rags. I owe it all to Him!!! Let the name of the Lord be Praised forever and ever. AMEN

    • bob m Says:

      You said… “When I came home I was so devastated and brainwashed and much sicker then when I arrived there.”

      Funny; that is how I felt when I left a main stream denomination.

      Took me about 5 yrs to recover (though sometimes the wounds still flare up). The people of the church love to toss around the term “brainwashing” while being guilty of the very same tactics.

      My testimony is summed up by Mark Twain: “The cure for christianity is to READ SCRIPTURE.”

      I would not have believed it if I had not lived it myself.

      For the record, I left the CHURCH (and most of the pagan traditions I was TRAINED to observe) but NOT my FAITH. I fully believe in the Elohim of Creation and of Abraham, Issac and Jacob and freely, regularly admit that I am in need of a redeemer. I have taken a mikvah in the actual name of the Father (Ex3:15).

      I concluded with these little admonitions (which will take a bit of effort to wrap your brain around but will be worth it):

      “BELIEVE what you READ;

      DO NOT,

      READ what you BELIEVE”.

        My estranged wife is requiring that I first be “reconciled” to her fellowship, who’s primary and predominant “prescription” for me is to complete the online conference / course on Be In Health website.

        She started her separation (and impending divorce) by going to Theophostic Prayer Ministry . . . and ‘buying into’ the IHOP craze (along with the fellowship).

        I warned her of the pitfalls and dangers of these “ministries”, but to no avail. Now this . . . if i refuse, the marriage is over, she divorces me and leaves our 4 children with the pieces / ashes.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        My heart goes out to you. I’m in the same boat with my two girls. For the past 3 years, I have been lucky to spend a few hours with them every year and then I’m restricted as to what I can talk about. I have gone through major depression – don’t go there! They consider me untrust worthy because I don’t buy into Henry’s ministry. I’m not a counselor but I can tell you that if you are not a biblical scholar you will have a hard time seeing through all the deception. Even if you see the lies, Henry’s followers are blinded to reason, as you can tell from some of the comments on this blog. Henry conveys that HE is the only one who knows the truth and is selling it to a tune of $500,000 a year for his pockets. I have removed some comments from this blog because they were just accusatory and reasoning was not happening. If you take the online conference/course you may be able to see more of how Henry manipulates his followers. But I venture to say it will not help your situation. I have spent innumerable hours researching Henry and his deceptions. I have found no way of reasoning or dealing with His followers. He has changed to make his message more palatable to more people who want to control God instead of letting God control them. PRAY! I don’t know if he is a great psychologist at work, a self deceived leader or working with Satan himself. I know very few who have gotten our of his web. Cindy can give you information there. Pray about salvaging what is left of your family, be strong, lean on the Lord and with God’s help pull yourselves together, create a Godly life for your children. I’m sure this is not what you wanted to hear. Put it into God’s hands and carry on! May the Lord bless you, give you strength and courage to carry on your life in a Godly manner for your sake and your children. Warmest Regards

      • Kim Says:

        Thomas, I read what you wrote about your wife requiring you to the Be In Health online conference. Well, I say don’t go BUT- in the very beginning of the Course and end “Henry” urges people to not take his word for his teaching, but to study the scripture- Bible. Can you suggest to your wife that the both of you study the Bible together for a year (No Henry / No Be in Health teachings. Rely on good old fashioned Bible and Holy Spirit and prayer. (I dont advise anyone to take the “be in health course”- it is very hard to take even for grounded, rooted Christians.
        The only reason I stayed in conference was because my mom and sister were there and didn’t know any better- actually mom my was on her way to getting hooked on Henry’s teaching. I stayed so I could counter act the wrongness, but it did take it’s toll and took some time to get over.

        Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therfore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Yes, i’m figuring that out. I’ve started reviewing the “Free Intro Course Online, the 10 Part , one day seminar” . . . and got literally, spiritually sick by minute 10 of the second part.

        My plan is to do the course “FOR” my wife, giving her the “Reader’s Digest” version (or cliff notes / for dummies) . . . so as to shield her from the putrid refuse.

        She’s so overwhelmed and wasn’t even planning on doing it anyways . . . they all think I’m the ONLY one who’s sick and needs deliverance (because i don’t agree with them and SUBMIT to them UNILATERALLY, UNRESERVEDLY, and UNEQUIVOCALLY).

        It’s a cult, and they don’t even know they are. This “Be in Health” baloney poison fits right in with their “Theophostic Prayer Ministry” hocus pocus, their “VisionQuest” heart intrusion workshops, and “International House of Prayer” waywardness spiritual manipulation.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Kim I so appreciate your thoughtful response and advice. Not being a psychologist I know that there is a lot of mind manipulation going on, but I don’t know quite how he does it. Be very careful, Thomas! May the Lord watch over your family and ground you well on HIS word only.

      • Kim (dragonslayer) Says:

        Thomas- One thing I love about God is that he never puts us in a situation that we can’t handle. If we are in it it’s because God knows we can handle it. God knows you can handle it. When we can’t- he is there, (he’s always there)- to take over. God wants us to Trust and Believe, and not to worry. Even now he is working in your wife and family. It is awesome that you are not backing down from the manipulation of HW doctorine, because his (HW- Be In Health)doctorine is not infallible, it just takes people to point it out and the Holy Spirit to guide. I love wrightiswrong’s starfish story- one by one we will win this battle.

  5. Cindy Pruss Says:

    Thank you for all of your hard work. Don’t worry about the overwhelming part, remember I heard Henry’s mouth run for six months. Basically, he was involved in teachinng deamonology and casting out evil spirits. People were manifesting all around the place, back in 1998-1999. He would say I know the spirits that are haunting you at night, and sure enough myself and others would be tormented all night long, and have to do spiritual warfare the entire night. He told me that fibromyalgia was caused by the spirit of fear. Well it was so dang scarey down there, the fibromyalgia would really flare up! I could tell you boatloads of information about my bizzare experiences down there, that 11 years later, I somestimes still have to battle with. So much more than you could learn from just reading his book. I’m open , I want this ministry to be destroyed! It ruins peoples lives, and they get addicted to him. Sincerely, Cindy Pruss

        Thanks you so much for your confidence in me. I really appreciate that. My heart is so saddened by your experience with HW. My email is . I am very interested in anything you have put together, and need to learn more myself. I know that Henry just received his doctorate from a University in Maryland. I know that his first degree was in psychology, I’m just wondering what he advanced in from there. Henry was always going around saying that he was going to crack the case on this matter and that. Well, with God’s help it is time that we all join forces and crack his case! He also warned several times to never write a book about this place. Also, he said that there would be some of us there that would turn against him, and terrible things would happen to us. That is the classic talk of a cult leader. After reading all of this I am so thankful to God that he brought me out into the light. You can’t give up, what he does for one, he will do for another. God Bless

  6. Moira Mews Says:

    Well, what about doing a similar ctritique on the myths and legends of medical science (ie doctors)? People get addicted to doctors too, quite often, not just pastors. Neither addiction is healthy, but hope is good – ‘hope does not disappoint us’ – and sometimes disease does have a spiritual root (which is not always your own sin) and ‘solving this’ (through Jesus on the cross) does lead to lasting cure. But look at Jesus and not at pastors or doctors or yourself or your intellectual gymnastics, or diseases generally. Peter sank when he took his eyes off the Lord and had to be rescued. Also – ‘there is no condemnation in Christ’ – so we don’t condemn/accuse anyone either. Its good to divide the Word, but not each other. Timothy 3 is helpful over this, also Titus. luv MM

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Thank you for your comments. I totally agree with you. We need to look to Jesus and not Henry Wright! If we believe that Jesus is sovereign than we would also believe that He allows suffering to test the strength of our faith, to humble us, to wean us away form worldly things, to call us to a heavenly hope, to reveal what we really love, to encourage us to value the blessing of God, to enable us to help other in their trials and to develop enduring strength. If their were no trails and suffering we would not look to God but be spoiled brats.

      The problem with the medical profession is NOT doctors, nor medication but our ignorance as to what our symptoms are, what our illness entails and what are our options for treatment. We want a quick and easy fix without always being totally truthful with our doctors. In addition to that we do not do what doctors tell us : do these exercises, loose weight, eat healthy, quit smoking etc. My doctor tells me that over 30% of all patience do not follow the doctors regiment for recovery and then Henry Wright put all the blame on doctors and medication mismanagement.

      God designed our bodies to self heal. If you allow God to work. 65% of all ailments will heal without medication and without Henry Wright. It takes time and we don’t want to work at healing ourselves God’s way. For the other 35% I count my blessings for doctors and medicine. There are millions of people who would be dead by now if it were not for the God given gifts bestowed on the medical professional and the use of medications. Does God always heal in the same way? No. Christ had many different methods of healing. But HIS healing were immediate, totally affective (None of this – walk it out) and never reoccurring! Henry says he doesn’t care if you die if you do not take your medication: high blood pressure, diabetics, heart regulator medications and so on. GOD CARES FOR US!

      I want to make this perfectly clear why I ever posted my 2 postings. When I said expose Henry Wright it is because he spiritually rapes people by brainwashing them. There were pastors from all over the world there studying under him. Even a bible society from London UK. If you were physically raped wouldn’t you want the rapist to be exposed and caught? I still kept the faith after leaving because I did and do have Jesus first in my life. Remember the Bible says in the last days that even the elect would be deceived if it were possible.

  7. IamHealed Says:

    With all due respect, you can argue theory, but not with a testimony. Gravely ill, I went to Henry W. Wright’s ministry in Georgia over 5 years ago. I sat through the classes, an unsaved, unbeliever when I got there. I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior while I was there. I came home and began my walk-out of devastating illnesses. God healed me of every disease! I returned to go through the classes again over the years, not because I was addicted (as you mention Cindy), but because I was a new Christian and I had a lot to learn. I lived, ate, breathed, and shared the principles taught there, (and still do). My life was on the line. As I applied these principles each day and progressed in the sanctification process, God was faithful to heal my body of all the disease. Complete restoration not only of my body, but my heart, soul, relationships, finances, and more. (Which was a major bonus as my original motivation for going was only physical healing). God healed me of stage 4 cancer and much more. I have witnessed countless, (in the thousands) of others healed before and after me as well… as they applied the same biblical principles taught at Be In Health in Thomaston, Georgia, (founded by Henry W. Wright, author of ‘A More Excellent Way’). God bless you in your journey.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I am gravely concerned for your spiritual well being. I praise God that you are healed of all your diseases and especially for your salvation. Obviously God got your attention. There are a lot of good meaning Christians in Henry Wrights ministry as there are in all churches. I’m also thrilled that you are wanting to learn more about God. You need to rightly learn how to divide God’s word. I have a few questions for you. If you were wanting to learn about banking would you go to a reputable school or one with no certifications? If you want to become a doctor would you seek to be admitted to a medical school with a reputation or learn your trade from old wise tales? Please seek a place other than Henry Wright if you really want to understand God’s word in truth. How many people have died because they trusted Henry Wright and came off their prescribed medications? How many children have died because their parents prayed but did not take their children to the doctor for what would have been a simple procedure? How many believers go to Henry’s camp and come home dejected? Or how many have given up their faith because they are not healed? Is God in control or are you? Are there times God may not want a person to be heal? Like Paul and Timothy in the Bible. May the Lord open your eyes to the deceptions that Henry Wright’s ministry. May the Lord increase your knowledge of truth and bless you with his bountiful gifts.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Praise the Lord for your healing both spiritually and physically. My concern is the negative view Henry Wright has concerning doctors and medicine and his twisting of scripture to suit his needs. Legitimate churches, movements, and individuals do not equal – using drugs or receiving proper medical attention with unbelief, insufficient faith, or otherwise sinning against God.

      The Bible does mention incidences of faith healing:

      Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. {12} As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance {13} and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” {14} When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. {15} One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. {16} He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him–and he was a Samaritan. {17} Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? {18} Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” {19} Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
      – Source: Luke 17:11-19 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. {15} And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. {16} Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
      – Source: James 5:14-16

      I do believe that all healings occurring only through the grace of God the one who holds all our cells along with the universe together. Just as he allow it to rain on the just and unjust. He heals unbelievers and believers at his sovereign will. Scientifically speaking, 60% of ALL ailments (including cancer) heal without any intervention for believers and nonbelievers. In light of this, what does the bible say?

      The Bible does not condemn, forbid, or even discourage the use of medicines or other proper medical care.

      Matter of fact, Luke, who wrote the Gospel of Luke, was a doctor.

      And the apostle Paul advised Timothy to use some wine for his stomach problems:

      Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.

      Note, too, that Paul does not criticize Timothy for his “frequent illnesses.” Nor does he even suggest that Timothy’s illnesses indicate a spiritual problem such as lack of faith. Instead, Timothy is seen as a spiritual leader and a good example to all.

      While Jesus healed many people himself, he spoke of physicians in a positive way:

      On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
      – Source: Mark 2:17

      False teachings, many associated with the word-faith movement blame sickness on anything from unbelief to sin, and often tie promises of healing to slick pitches for financial contributions. Christ never told those he held to now pay your tithe faithful so you don’t fall back into sickness.

      Many preachers make false claims about alleged faith healings, or – when asked for verifiable accounts – come up with next to nothing (e.g. Benny Hinn and Henry Wright). Why aren’t all those testimonial in the back of “A More Excellent Way” verified by the medical community?

      Claims of miracles occurring at these services (or in distant countries where they cannot be verified) are multiplying and becoming more and more wildly unbelievable all the time. Those who do not accept second hand accounts of miracles giving no names or facts are derided as lacking “faith,” refusing to believe what does not fit “their own tradition,” or “putting God in a box.” “Cessationist” has become a dreadful thing to be labeled. It is amazing to see how many succumb to this peer pressure and check their minds at the mention of the word “miracle.” Yet so far there have not been any medically verified, true, supernatural, biblical miracles; it is pretty much the traditional faith healing story, with most claims concerning those ailments most susceptible to emotional influence, as in all the religions and systems of thought centered on producing healings.

      Christians are often confused about the ministry of healing, but these biblical teachings clearly appear:

      I received this e-mail from a friend. In agreement we pray for Henry Wright and his full recovery, for the effectiveness of the medical staff serving him, the potency of the medicines to bring him to full health and the hand of the Lord to be on the entire situation.

      “Dear Iren, Hope you are having a good Summer. I am doing well. I wanted you to join in prayer with me about something. This past Thursday, Henry Wright had Open Heart Surgery. I have been praying that while he is now flat on his back, for the most part anyway, that the Holy Spirit will greatly convict him of the wrong doing that he has created in peoples lives. For using his degree in psychiatry to help him brainwash people, for separating families, misquoting the scriptures, ect ect ect!!!!!!! For God to destroy the works of the devil down South, and everywhere elese this cultic word has spread. For eyes and ears to open up, and truly hear what the word of the Lord has spoken! I am going to take this opportunity to flood heaven with my prayers. For as the Lord God departed the Red Sea, may He move and make a way for His people to flee from this cult in Jesus Mighty Name! Thank you for your prayers, In His Love, Cindy P “

      With God’s grace and humility,

      you are so very wrong to answer to this person like you have. it shows where your are at. what a judgemental person you are -full of critisism. what right have you to tell that person you are gravely concerned for them when they’ve had a personal encounter of healing. what a hypocrite -a religious person – understand that people have testimony to their lives and if someone is healed of major diseases that is mighty. i’m sure God’s angels in heaven are rejoicing and still rejoicing.

      With all due respect, you CAN argue with a healing testimony as well.My friends sees reiki healers for a debilitating illness.
      She swears by it and tells me of all the healing she has received.
      Does she actually get healing from this technique, Maybe.
      Is it psychological, maybe.

      Is it God? Certainly Not.

      • ANON Says:

        This is in response to “I am healed” saying that you cannot argue with healing. However, it is showing up under someone else’s post. Probably my lack of tech saavy in posting?

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Thank you for your insightful comments Here are some notes I have taken by Death by Faith and other sources.

        What is right with Faith healers: They have faith in God. They believe that God can cure all diseases.

        What is wrong with faith healers:
        They make promises that they can not keep. Promises for the ever gullible. Henry Wright is very selective about where he is willing to travel to heal people. It should be noted too that his healings are carefully orchestrated . He will not minister to many who are NOT considered a good healing risk. A good candidate would be one whose ailment is possible psychosomatic. He called if discerning their level of faith but it’s more than than.
        The most heart-breaking stories involve people who have incurable organic sickness and are desperate for a last chance. They listen to anyone who can give them hope and they will do anything to preserve their life, sometimes even believing a lie for some hope!
        Faith healers can ruin peoples health and lives by their teachings.
        Numerous people who have been influenced by this teaching have said that they stood on the word for people dying, and stated that this person is not going to die and they died. And their faith becomes crushed because they thought they heard God say they would live. How? By someone else usually telling them by his stripes we are healed. They may not directly tell the people to get rid of their insulin or other medicines but they encourage this by stating emphatically that it is a promise of God to heal all by faith.
        Most deny reality at best and lie at worst.
        * it is more harmful to believe in fantasy than to face the reality of truth and have time to do something about it.
        * People mock the church because of a false testimony. The truth matters to people, and nothing can hurt the truth more than outlandish unproven assertions of supernatural power that does not take place. Why should we believe tremendous miracles take place just because someone says so?
        * Satan to God (Job 2:4) “Skin for skin, yes, all that a man has, will he give for his life “
        Within the faith healers own families they can not heal.
        Furthermore, almost all the faith teachers wear glasses. It’s right there on their face as they tell you that you can be healed and call out all the diseases people are being healed of. God made it so you can’t miss their contradiction, but many do. Why? Because they do not know how to listen with discernment, they believe almost every word these men say verbatim. How sad.
        By his stripes we are heal. Are we healed of our sicknesses at the cross and not for our sins?
        Hundreds of children and adults die because they are denied medical treatment.
        * Real faith in truth does not kill, so what is going on? People are dying from these men’s teachings and proclamations of people being healed.
        * Did anyone die after Jesus pronounced them healed? Of course not
        * Do we care for the people who are being deceived by these false promises? The faith of some men become a license to kill.
        * Real healing from God are immediate, totally successful and not reoccurring at a later date.
        * Real healing of Jesus were not psychosomatic. These are the healings that Henry Wright is successful with!
        * Some healing is the result of the wonderful way humans have been created by an all-wise God and not anything that this ministry had done.
        People believe that they have heard from God – that they will live and yet they die.
        Words are powerful.
        Where in the bible does it say that I have the power to create reality with my words?
        They discourage the use of medication. Your faith will make you well. But alas many die.
        God sovereignty is taken out of the pictures. Man is in control . The original sin!
        * Whatever happened to “Thy will be done”.
        It is not by the amount of our faith that has God heal us. God can heal even if there is little faith represented. God is not bound to heal by our declaration of faith; healing rests in His sovereign will and timing.
        * God can cure all diseases just as God will destroy all the wicked ones of the world and will rid the world of wickedness during the seven years of the Time of Jacobs Trouble. (God’s Timing is everything) Romans 1:18,19: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hinder the truth in unrighteousness; because that which is known of God is manifested in them; For God manifested it unto them. ”
        Faith healers undermine Christina witness to the general public
        When researchers are given list of people who have been cured they find that non prove to have been a genuine Devine cure.
        Miracles don’t convince people to put their faith in Jesus. Or Jesus’ own family would have been convinced.
        God also has the power to destroy all wickedness, but he has chosen not to.
        Healings in non believers
        There are many documented cases where people who were dying prayed to god of their own religion (and imagination) and were healed. There are numerous documented cases where people who were sick and dying had made no claim to faith, used prayer, or even believed in God, had a miraculous cure. How are these explained? You could be sure if a faith-healer was nearby they would find a way to attribute it to their ministry. Biblical faith is not blind or irrational. It is time for the people of God to demand more than anecdotal stories from those claiming the power of the apostles.

    • Thomas Romero (@TomRome) Says:

      Great testimony. You can see that Henry is preaching THE TRUTH OF YAHSHUA because of the attacks against him here. I too was delivered and I’m a 50 year old, educated person with a very long spiritual path. I will not speak negatively against the voices attacking him as Yahweh commands against it in the Tanakh, but I will say that where there is truth, there are the few. Look at the mega churches for a polar opposite example of that statement.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        I am sorry to hear that an educated person can’t see that a little bit of poison can spoil the whole thing. Any ministry that advocates that they are the only way is unbiblical. Yahweh is the only way the truth and the light NOT Henry Wright. When a pastor turns his follows away from their families it is not of God. God’s more excellent way is NOT to Be in Health but to love even the unlovable, even your unsaved family and friends. You are on the wrong path. We all want an easy road – No health problems. That’s not what God promised. He promises eternal life after death (suffering) to those who believe on Him. We all suffer and will continue to suffer in this life, those born again and even those who are not born again but those who come to saving faith had better expect it. Trials do not show us how strong our faith is as much as they reveal whether we will remain faithful. James knew about trials. He suffered just like all of the apostles did as every one of them died for their faith. Only the Apostle John was not martyred but he was a prisoner on the Isle of Patmos and worked in the mines until he died even though he managed to write the Book of Revelation.

        James wrote “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James says that a “crown of [eternal] life” awaits you in heaven but only if you remain “steadfast under trial” and only when you have “stood the test” will you “receive this crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” Repent from following a man and turn to God and follow what he say! You are not more holy in being in an “exclusive” group “Henry’s followers” than the man on the street. We are ALL sinners in need a Jesus – everyday. Do you really think that the Lord would have kept his true teaching for only Henry and his followers to reveal? It’s like Joseph Smith! Really?

      • C.Stewart Says:

        So much ignorance here. God word is so plain even a babe would understand. Pastor Wright is giving and sharing his testimony. Be careful folks with the judgmental spirit. What so ever you sow that you shall also reap. God intends that we study to show thyself approved unto God.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Thank you for your blog. Hopefully both our hearts are in the right place of loving God and our neighbors and therefore we submit our concerns.
        1) You know in your heart that there is something amiss with Henry’s teachings. Once you have made up your mind to follow a false teacher there is very little that anyone can say to change your mind. If this is not true than walk away from Henry’s teaching a open up the word of God instead. Open you heart to your motive. We all want to be in control of ourselves. Be in health promotes the idea that YOU with God’s help can determine your life and by WORKS not by GRACE you can change things. Our greatest sin is the sin of high treason against God we want to be like God – in control of our health and our blessings.

        2) Anytime a pastor uses the phrase “do not touch my anointed” as Henry frequently did – RUN away as fast as you can. He again as taken a phrase out of context (the anointed in context refers to the children of Israel – not pastors) to benefit himself so no one will questions his lack of skill in the area of biblical hermeneutics which is the science that teaches the principles and methods of interpreting the Word of God. Proper hermeneutics provide us tools to help ensure that we are basing our interpretations on the truth as God has revealed it, while avoiding error to the greatest degree possible. To read more go to

        3) I am concern, when someone is not testing what they hear from any pulpit. We are all admonished to be discerning. You should be encouraging healthy discussions! In its simplest definition, discernment is nothing more than the ability to decide between truth and error, right and wrong. Discernment is the process of making careful distinctions in our thinking about truth. In other words, the ability to think with discernment is synonymous with an ability to think biblically.

        First Thessalonians 5:21-22 teaches that it is the responsibility of every Christian to be discerning: “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.” The apostle John issues a similar warning when he says, “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). According to the New Testament, discernment is not optional for the believer-it is required. (By John MacArthur)

        The Bereans are models of right-minded followers. Though zealous to hear, they did not thoughtlessly or uncritically accept what Paul said. They first tested it for themselves from the Scriptures and then submitted themselves to following it. May I encourage you to test all the you hear from Henry.

        1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
        Luke 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
        Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
        Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
        Matthew 7:21-23 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 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
        Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
        2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
        2 Timothy 4:3 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;
        1 Thessalonians 5:21 – Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
        Acts 20:29 – For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
        Matthew 7:15-20 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
        1 Timothy 4:1 – Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
        1 John 4:1 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
        2 Corinthians 11:13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

    • Gillian ROWLES Says:

      Thats precisely it. You were unsaved but as Christians Henry Wright has done nothing but damage us. Jesus does not need the help of this so called healing ministry. Someone else said how dare we tear down man of God. But that is healthy otherwise a lot of charlatans out there would be imposing false doctrine on gullible people. We need watchmen

  8. David S Says:

    I would be interested in anything else you have about Mr. Wright and his ministry. It seems that he is of the Katherine Kuhlman/Oral Roberts tradition. He will deceive many well-meaning people.
    Mat 7:21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but the ones who do the will of My Father in Heaven.
    Mat 7:22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power?
    Mat 7:23 And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; “depart from Me, those working lawlessness!”
    You can reply to my e-mail and need not post it here.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Thank you for your comments. I totally agree with you. We need to look to Jesus and not Henry Wright! If we believe that Jesus is sovereign than we would also believe that He allows suffering to test the strength of our faith, to humble us, to wean us away form worldly things, to call us to a heavenly hope, to reveal what we really love, to encourage us to value the blessing of God, to enable us to help other in their trials and to develop enduring strength. If their were no trails and suffering we would not look to God but be spoiled brats.

      The problem with the medical profession is NOT doctors, nor medication but our ignorance as to what our symptoms are, what our illness entails and what are our options for treatment. We want a quick and easy fix without always being totally truthful with our doctors. In addition to that we do not do what doctors tell us : do these exercises, loose weight, eat healthy, quit smoking etc. My doctor tells me that over 30% of all patience do not follow the doctors regiment for recovery and then Henry Wright put all the blame on doctors and medication mismanagement.

      God designed our bodies to self heal. If you allow God to work. 65% of all ailments will heal without medication and without Henry Wright. It takes time and we don’t want to work at healing ourselves God’s way. For the other 35% I count my blessings for doctors and medicine. There are millions of people who would be dead by now if it were not for the God given gifts bestowed on the medical professional and the use of medications. Does God always heal in the same way? No. Christ had many different methods of healing. But HIS healing were immediate, totally affective (None of this – walk it out) and never reoccurring! Henry says he doesn’t care if you die if you do not take your medication: high blood pressure, diabetics, heart regulator medications and so on. GOD CARES FOR US!

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I have some major concerns about Henry Wright. First of all he never attended any credited seminary. He is a psychology major and a very good one at that. He knows how to manipulate people. Any ministry that tells their follower to abandon family if their disagree with his teaching is a cult and must he hiding heretical teachings. They don’t what their followers to hear the truth or to even question their misconception. He definitely is in the same line as Katherine Kuhlmand/Oral Roberts. Henry like Benny Henn, Derek Prince and others are and have made millions of dollars off of poorly versed followers. If you are not an astute bible student than Henry can totally deceive you.

      A few of his deception:
      the title of his book: A More Excellent way is not the eradication of disease but the need for more love.
      Use of many verses: to appear biblical but are misused
      He uses obscure verses for the bases of his doctrine
      He contradict himself in his own book
      He confuses definitions: What is Devine healing verses a miracle?
      He uses selective citations: If a verse doesn’t fit what he wants to say he leaves it out!
      He uses faulty citations, and partial citations and he collapses contexts.
      He takes literally a figures of speech and overstates metaphors.
      He uses confusing arguments – is Henry double minded?(Page 41) In dealing with autoimmune diseases, 1 Corinthians is an example of a root, to healing caused by the taking of communion unworthily. block, not a
      He uses verses out of context ( I can do that too: Judas hung himself. Go do likewise!)
      He adds to the bible for example: P. 52 He (Satan) oversees a bureaucracy called the second heaven that is invisible. … If there is a 1st heaven and a third heaven, what comes in between? The second heaven. Satan is called the prince of the power of the air but it doesn’t say which heaven he controls. The word “second heaven” is not mentioned anywhere in the King James Version.

      • Roy Says:

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        When I was at one of his conferences he, himself told us that he was a psychology major. I don’t believe he has a doctorate in anything. Maybe a mail order degree? If anyone knows please tell us.

        His staff continue to refer to Henry as Dr. Henry Wright on their web site. I wish the truth behind that title could be exposed a bit. It seems like he is using the title to deceive, since I know he is not a medical docotr.

      • Despicable Me Says:

        Sometime around 2010 or 2011 someone from a major college attended their week long seminar. They were so impressed w/Henry’s ‘knowledge’ that they took his materials to that college and presented it to their doctorate board, who were also impressed.

        That college (i don’t remember the name) granted him the doctorate based on the work that was presented.

        However, this college didn’t realize that a great portion of “Henry’s” materials were actually direct lifts from other sources.

        The thing that he has, to his credit, is his ability to data collect (which he didn’t/doesn’t actually do, he has others do it, usually for free or for pennies) and solidify the data into usable references.

        Additionally, i don’t think he got a break on the price. It’s a given that he paid some fee for the privilege of walking and accepting that piece of paper.

        The weird thing is this: up to the point that HE had a degree, he actually was dismissive of degrees, in general.

        So. there you have it.

      • Lori Colley Says:

        P.S. Henry doesn’t have any degree whatsoever, other than the doctorate he was given by Chesapeake Bible College in MD. He was a pre-med student in Kentucky before he dropped out to be a radio disc jockey.

  9. Dale Dueck Says:

    After having examined Henry Wright’sbook in detail, it is obvious that he has tremendous passion and zeal for his subject matter. His book must be commended for its desire to draw a solid connection between unforgiveness and human illness.
    The unfortunate problem is that Henrys passion and zeal are undone by his inability to rightlydivide the Word of Truth. There are so many interpretational errors in his writing that one has wonder if he even knows how to study the Bible in context.
    One prime example is his handling of Exodus 15:26 and Deuteronomy 28. His ignornace of the purpose of these texts has led him to make statements that are so obviously wrong that even a first year Bible Colege student could spot and refute the errors. Wright states on p.76 and p.125of his 2009 edition, “it is important to note that curses do not come from God. They come form Satan.” He makes similar assrtions on p.125. From even a surface contextual reading of Ex and Deut one can clearly see that Satan has no part in the curses described in Deut 28. The blessing and curse formula outlined in Deut 28 is a standard part of the Suzerain Vassal Treaty formula familiar to those in the Ancient Near East. God’s curses in Deut 28 are a valid part of the penalty for disobedience to the covenant. The same is true for Ex 15:26. God will bring diseases on Israel as he did on Egypt as a repsonse to disobedience. Wright’s exegetical skill is sadly lacking. No amount of passion and zeal can replace solid interpretational and exegetical skills.
    There are too many errors in his application of NT passages to list here.

    • davesd Says:

      Absolutely correct. Wright is a neophyte at biblical exegesis. As a result, he feels free to rip passages from their original contexts and pour a foreign interpretation into them to advance his scripturally baseless conclusions. I have often listened to his presentations and shook my head at the many missteps he takes with scripture. You are correct – any first year Bible student or seminarian would shudder at Wright’s ineptitude with the Bible.

  10. Dr Nancy McGuire Says:

    There must be balance. We as individual Christians do not have a corner on the Truth. By that I mean we are not going to know the whole picture. Yet the Lord does want us to know truth—His precepts. It has been my experience that when people are sick, invariably their spirit is affected as well as the body and the mind. I do believe that there are spirits of infirmity that can manifest as physical illness. If Jesus dealt with this spirit, did it just leave the earth or are such entities here today (Luke 13:10-17)? The Church needs to get it together in regard to a biblical worldview. There definitely needs to be better understanding regarding the theology of healing and the gifts of the Holy Spirit and we need it soon. Medicine can do nothing in the instances where there is a spiritual problem and believe me we are dealing with them daily. Instead of criticism, we need to pray for God’s wisdom and discernment and for each other.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Dear Nancy,
      Thank you for comments. My efforts with this blog is not to impart criticism for it’s own sake but to the reveal truth. If I do not speak the truth, in what I say, please call me on it. Let iron sharpen iron so both of us can be better enlightened.

      You are most correct in stating that we do not have the corner on the Truth. GOD does! God does want us to know his precepts. So let us dig into his word and pray that HE will give us discernment. Too many of us don’t read our bibles and if we do we don’t spend a lot of time studying HIS word in context of the bible, the book, the chapter and the verse. Studying individual words without context is quite futile. Most of us have not been taught how to divide God’s word properly. We don’t understand the basics of hermeneutics. Therefore, when we hear a pastor promise healing and no more trials and tribulations we jump for it and many are wounded and some so stricken that they leave the faith altogether. We don’t understand how Satan can us God’s word to deceive us just like Satan tried to deceive Christ in the wilderness. Jesus knew God’s word and could combat Satan with the truth. Being a Christian is not a free ride here on earth. Our hope is in Christ and his heavenly kingdom.

      Yes, I do agree with you that many of our infirmities are caused by the evil inside of us and from outside of us. As our country appears to be less and less of a Christian force the evil in our country and the world does appear to be growing.

      No one will argue with you that the body, mind and spirit are not connected, any psychologist can tell you that. Each follower of Christ needs to be better at listening, serving and praying for each other. The Morman faith appears to have a better understanding of this than most of us so. What I am seeing is a lot of “ME” centeredness. I believe we need to hear more from pulpits of giving of ourselves, not just to our Christian friends but to non-believes as well. I need to be more of a doing and not just a listener.

      What a glorious thing to be able to administer to the health needs of your patience both physically and spiritually and emotionally. You must be quite a blessing if you can take the time in your practice to do that in truth. May the Lord honor your work as you serve HIM thought others.

      i can assure you Henry W Wright may have his flaws like all of us, but he is doing more good than most. any ministry that encourages you to get to the root of your sins is closer to God’s word than those who don’t. if you had a serious illness, followed Be In Healths steps and training and were healed you would be rejoicing. it depends if a person chooses to look serious at all their sins within or chooses to be prideful and not recognise them. if you want all junk gone then Wow -you will end in great joy.

      you’ve got nothing to worry about Pastor Henry Wrights ministry -its a good ministry – ‘ wrightiswrong’ blog is in error – they did not follow all the precepts correctly of this ministers steps -unless a person sincerely desires truth and a clean up of all their sins and judgments, they will not be healed -they may even leave the ministry in much judgments and critisism instead of owning their own problems correctly. it happens time and time again -the easy fix is to blame a ministry for their ongoing problems instead of facing it themselves. a person may come under oppression when prayed over of desiring to overcome because the enemy does not want christians totally healed and whole with a real cause for God’s kingdom to journey through this life abundant and free -to a long good life.

  13. sandy Says:

    just be very careful in your judgements – Henry W Wright encourages people to get to the root of their sin -something so many do not want to do and therefore blame. if you read his books in the right way and not with slanted view, you may appreciate this mans encouragement to you to live a Holy pure and upright life. really it is so simple. i’ve done For My Life and listened to many of his inspirational teachings from God’s word and they have changed my life forever. pick up your bed and walk -dig deep to your roots of sin and rid the bitterness, anger, hatred, jealousy and all that junk and just you wait and see. may God bless you all and bring you to the truth.

    you have something to complain about when the church does not teach repentance from all our sin, or disabling issues. consider the churches full of hype -claiming healing for peoples lives and does not -that is rampant. at least Be In Health point to the sin, root issues and that is Biblical -so very Biblical.

    ” he never attended any credited seminary” – take note “wrightiswrong” – the bible doesn’t state you have to go to a credited seminary – the bible heroes didn’t and it’s certainly not a sin if you don’t today. Read your Bible from front to back cover before you continue this pitiful website that is out to curse a ministry that is in fact used to awaken this generation today.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Thank you for your blog. Bless all the pastors who encourage their flocks to look deep into their hearts to see what pride is doing in their lives and to others. I am always convicted by how evil I am in comparison to Christ. I really don’t know much, but the purpose of this blog is hopefully make people aware of what I discern from my studies to be false teachings.

      I say “AMEN” to ridding ourselves of bitterness, anger, hatred, jealousy and all that junk. I don’t feel bitter, angry, hatful or jealous toward others. My heart goes out to everyone who is deceived. To anyone who has believed teachers like Henry and have stopped needed medications and have lost loved ones before their time. I don’t believe in the Name and Claim it faith healers either. That is just as un biblical as Be in Health is. Please be careful “A More Excellent Way” is full of bible verses that make it appear biblical. They are used out of context with scripture twisting. Instead of reading Henry’s book dig into the Bible! A more excellent way in the bible does not refer to better health but more love!

      Christians are often accused of “judging” whenever they speak out against a sinful activity. However, that is not the meaning of the Scripture verses that state, “Do not judge.” There is a righteous kind of judgment we are supposed to exercise—with careful discernment (John 7:24). When Jesus told us not to judge (Matthew 7:1), He was telling us not to judge hypocritically.

      In Matthew 7:2-5, Jesus warns against judging someone else for his sin when you yourself are sinning even worse. That is the kind of judging Jesus commanded us not to do. If a believer sees another believer sinning, it is his Christian duty to lovingly and respectfully confront the person with his sin (Matthew 18:15-17). This is not judging, but rather pointing out the truth in hope—and with the ultimate goal—of bringing repentance in the other person (James 5:20) and restoration to the fellowship. We are to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15). We are to proclaim what God’s Word says about sin. 2 Timothy 4:2 instructs us, “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction.” We are to “judge” sin, but always with the goal of presenting the solution for sin and its consequences—the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

      I attended one of Henry’s seminars and in the beginning I wanted very much for his message to be the answer to all my trails and tribulations. I had read the bible several times and I ended the weekend walking away sensing incongruence between what Henry was saying and God’s word. I have read Henry Wright’s book “A More Excellent Way” several times and I have studied it intensely. I have studied all the verses he quoted to understand the full context of what God had to say to us and I found many errors in Henry’s book.

      If I read the Koran or the Book of Mormon with the right way and not slanted would I become a believer of Mormon or a Muslim? It is not reading books in the right way but reading the Bible in truth without scripture twisting using proper hermeneutics that matters. If I listened to more tapes on the Muslim faith would that make it the truth?

      Please take time to explore proper hermeneutics and study your Bible not Henry Wright!

      • sandy Says:

        no, not when you are in heresay – trying to reach the whole world with your grievances and interpretations or slanted views – many thousands have been given ‘life’ because of this ministry. there are far worse ministries than Be In Health I can assure you of that. Pastor Henry has taken things steady – he’s had opportunity to work with the medical profession, i’m sure he continues to seek the Lord for the best wisdom that God can give to him -everyone in leadership always comes under overwhelming pressures and may make mistakes, but through their confessions and repentance they are forgiven by the Lord. a more excellent way is a top seller and is a good book for every home to have on hand – why don’t you pull every book written apart as i’m sure YOU will find fault with every page any christian has written. i’m speaking the truth. wake up and stop tryiing to pull the man down -leave that to God.

      you seem to LOVE straw man arguments…. why is that?

      Mr. Wrong train you do be that way, eh?

      • Kristy Says:

        Mr. Anderson,
        Wow, I would seriously stop focusing on this mostly hateful blog and consider putting all that energy to work using only God’s word, clearly written in The Bible to get yourself together.
        Forget be in health for a second and just focus on releasing all these angry feelings to God and asking the Holy Spirit to guide and reveal to you… The Truth.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Thank you for your comments. It is interesting that you ask Mr. Anderson to release his angry feeling while at the same time you accuse this blog of being hateful. There is place for righteous anger and I’m not going to judge a man’s heart on this. That is farthest goal of this blog. In love I challenge you to leave Henry’s false teaching and to get into the Bible and learn to divide it in truth. I have still to have anyone explain where I have presented Henry’s false teaching incorrectly. The reason this blog was started was to expose the TRUTH of “be in health” ministries so others would not fall into Henry’s heresies. Any time a pastor claims to be the [anointed one] “be on your guard” as this is a person who does not know how to divide scripture correctly and is hiding behind this statement to promote himself. Here again Henry has taken God’s words out of context. ‘The Lord’s anointed’, is a reference to the kings of the nation of Israel (1Sam. 12:3,5; 24:6,10; 26:9,11, 16,23; 2 Sam. 1:14,16; 19:21; Psalm 20:6; Lam. 4:20). The mention of prophets, is a reference to the patriarchs (Psalm 105:8-15; 1Chron. 16:15-22). It is used exclusively in the Old Testament. It is not a cloak to hide one’s false teaching behind. The bible says that we will have tribulation which “be in health” claim does not need to be. We live in a fallen would and the consequences of the fall is disease, suffering and death. Only believing that Jesus lived a sinless life and that he took my place, as a sinner, on the cross to pay for all my sins will I be saved from eternal separation from God and hell. All my good works are as filthy rage, according to the bible. If you believe that you can live a single day without sinning covertly or overtly then you are claiming that the words of the bible are not true. May I encourage you to, “Forget be in health” as you said and trust God’s word be your guide.

  14. sandy Says:

    actually, what is happening here is this: those of you who curse this ministry need to take a look at yourselves as blame is a big game in this life. you don’t get healed or whole, so therefore blame- focus on the Lord God of the Heavens and earth, focus on your own wrong, confess and make right . there is a demon spirit at work to word twist and put a slant on some ministries that is in fact enlarged and twisted to suit your own thoughts. the enemy succeeds in this twisted mentality so often (your blogs portray a good man bad -your blogs sounds so true and right -your blogs are a twisted demonic mindset away from the truth. take this blog site down and spend your time with something profitable and may God bless you and guide you to the truth. for everyone of us Ephesians 6 (Armor of God) is something incredible to put on each day as we dig deep to overcome our own insecurities and bondages in life. the enemy tries to destroy, but what satan means for bad, God turns out for good.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Bless you! What I hear you saying is that we are cursing Henry’s ministry, that I am making up thought and words, that I am a good man gone bad. I have read your blog with an open heart and mind. Your accusations are broad and general.

      Can I address “cursings”? Maybe this article may enlighten us to the truth on blessings and curses if we read it with the mind set that God is trying to reveal something to us. Please let me know if you find any truth in what is said here.

His word is made clear – you know what Pastor Henry W Wright makes clear -getting back to the basics of God’s word, you just haven’t ‘got it’ yet. the light hasn’t shone over you and I pray it will. when i see this blog down then it is you will begin your freedom from religion.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Again, you make statements that are not backed up with facts. Again, I do not curse any ministry or anyone because that has never been my intent. According to the bible only GOD can curse someone or something and have an impact. Where have I twisted God’s words? Let’s stop this emotional response and let us reason together!

    • Scooter B Says:

      I find it quite ironic that a teaching which blames the sick for not getting healed, assumes the fault is their own (sometimes this may be true and sometimes not) and falls into judgement of them would be so critical of having an incorrect theology called into account. In the 5th chapter of John 5:5-14 we see a healed by Jesus first and called to repentance not until in the temple vs 14 after the healing. I am not advocating a lack of repentance but Jesus did not make it a prerequisite in His ministry. The Roman centurion was neither called into repentance first before healing his daughter….Jesus marveled at the centurions faith and responded without condition. John chapter 9:1-5 also CLEARLY contradicts the teaching that anyone born with a genetic disease is secondary to the sin and/or curse of his/her parents. I can’t say that this never happens but I can with full Biblical authority according to the words of Jesus himself state that some people are born with either genetic diseases and/or birth defects that have no basis in being secondary to sin (other than living in a fallen world). Henry Wright alternates using the terms “in most cases” and “always” in equating the same various diseases to certain types of sin or generational curses. “In most cases” is hard to statistically verify in any way but that does not make it untrue alone. Using “Always” in these cases clearly contradicts the red letters in John 9:1-5. While I have been in the process of reading A More Excellent Way on almost every page I have had to make notes where verses are taken out of context or positions contradict other passages of Scripture. The Word when correctly divided does not ever contradict it’s self. If your interpretation is found in contradiction to other passages in Scripture you cannot simply overlook it because you like the results you have seen. You must adjust your interpretation to match scripture. In my interpreting the Bible class two of the hallmarks of a cult are 1. An insistence on using one and only particular version of the Bible to explain their teaching. 2. Claiming to have a unique insight to the Scripture that no one else has. I am not saying these two things alone place this ministry into the classification of a cult but those are two very big red flags right off the bat.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        You’re on the right track… this IS a cult.


        …and it only gets worse and worse the deeper you dig…

  15. 123angelCindy Pruss Says:

    My friend is a true example of a Christ Bearer. You see, her daughters were taken away by Henry Wright. He told them to stay away from their Mother because she does not believe in his teachings. When I came back from Georgia, my mother called down there and told them how disturbed I was when I returned , and that the teachings were not right. Thank God I never returned there, because I just lost my mother to ovarian cancer. How sad it would have been if Henry had brainwashed me into not seeing my mother again. This ministry has got to stop! People are being so deceived. We are all going to die someday, including Henry Wright. I pray that he heals from his very recent open heart surgery, but not only that, that his diabolical mind recovers also.

  16. sandy Says:

    -some think they have a right to judge when there is in fact a BLOCKAGE in their own lives -because of past opened doors the enemy is convincing many they are right, right, right when in fact they are wrong, wrong, wrong. we can think we are SO, SO right, when in fact we are SO, SO WRONG. be careful. be so very careful. the influence of demonic over a persons life because of previous opened doors -unless those doors of sin are closed the influences of the enemy abstract from the real truth in a persons life and cause them to discect a ministers words of encouragement -every paragragh taken and critisised into a slanted version against truth. i’ve seen this happen so often, though when we are willing, absolutely willing and ready to rid every bit of junk from within us, we move past all the bitterness and hurts of another man into a new and great thing for our lives. Isaiah 43v18, 19 -absolutely refreshing wonderful verses for God’s direction and encouragement for our lives. lay off Henry W Wright -He’s a good man in the process of great change and he is being used for such a time as this in thousands of lives across this world. God is changing him every day – get him out of your box and leave God do His work in Pastor Henry. if i were you, it’s in your best interest to close this blog down -get rid of it in Jesus Christ’s name -it’s a curse to a great ministry.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Thanks for your advice and concern. You have nothing to worry about. God is in control and will always be! It sounds like you did NOT read what the bible says about judging and curses.

      The first 17 verses of Isaiah 43 declare that the people need not fear since God has redeemed them and called them by name and claims to own/possess them. God’s presence with them as well as Divine ransom paid for them dispels any (further) fear. God promises to gather people from every nation to them, to unite them all and in reminding them of previous salvation from traumas, like the Babylonian Exile, for example, proclaims them to be His servants, witnesses and own people. 18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. The final three verses find a challenge to the recipients.. It confirms past sinfulness and judgments. No where here does it say to look at demonic forces left open but to forget them. Repent of the sins that the Holy Spirits convicts you of and then rest in the Lord!
      You are right it is a beautiful passage!

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Can you please tell me where in the bible I can find the idea of blockages? Henry has some 33 blocks of these to justified someone not being healed but I can not find it in the bible. What I do find is that we are suppose to pray with faith and continually and then trust in the sovereignty of the Lord. It you have a change to read the book “Life without Limits” you will see how even a person without arms and legs can bless God and do a might work for HIM. An awesome book!

      • sandy Says:

        i would like to reply to this and please read it prayerfuly with a very open mind to the truth: i don’t really need to quote scriptures as you know the Bible very well . i grew up learning verses every week, so i know many also – my replies on this blog are a general overview because Henry Wright has been just one of the ministers of many I’ve been blessed by. i have heard other ministers of deliverance use the term BLOCKS TO HEALING. these may not be specifically in God’s word, but there are verses that relate to every area of life for us and those blocks can very possibly be a problem because they are part of the problem of our fallen human nature – there is nothing wrong with practical examples to allow us to see the light. the 33 blocks to healing are a way to have us take a deep look within our hearts – to cleanse -to purify – to purge the sins and junk away. they are an extention of the 8 Rs to freedom. they help us define sin for what it really is. the idea of Henry’s teachings are to allow our lives to turn around away from religion and bondage and back to the word of God, to focus on the Lord, not on Henry Wright but on the Lord. that is what the whole crux of his ministry is about, regardless of conflicting views, if we have the training of For my Life for example when we are in bondage, and all of us have baggage – we are not made anew immediatelly at the time of salvation -our lifetime is a journey of change and challenge -always desiring change -it gets into our system and lights God’s words to us. it renews our mind away from religious strongholds it depends on how serious we are as a born again believer, how quickly the greatest freedom comes to live a life more abundant. after doing For My Life 18mths ago, i got the principles of it into my heart and it has made me a much stronger woman of God. God’s words are clearer to me. I’m able to inspire others who are struggling. i now know how to defeat rejection because i worked hard to have it removed- it was deep, deep rejection -i had to see myself as God sees me and all the other bondages like jealousies, fear and the other subjects they teach -it gets into our inner being and the blockages of the enemy to hold us back is released because we’ve allowed our mind to be renewed as unto the mind of Christ. its training to undo all the deep seated junk we’ve brought into adulthood from our past. it’s great and many people would not be drawn to the truth if they can’t hear a minister preach this positive stuff to us, that is certainly drawing us back to God. the Holy Spirit working miraculousy because He uses men and woman of God to help others. i see the ministry of Be In Health as inspiring to all those who GET IT if I could put it like that. a minister encouraging us that we can do it according to God’s word. as we live in such a fallen world, so many lives are defeated and heartbroken, the pain of some is so very deep and hopeless. God allows us to relate in a practical way to help the wounded arise – why not have a list of blocks to healing if in the practical sense allow us to see our flaws. the 33 blocks Henry lists are a fact of life as a way to move a heartbroken person back to the scriptures which give the ultimate future and hope. if the church had trained like this instead of apathy and watered down gospel, maybe there wouldn’t need to be the Be In Health ministries today, but God allows it for ‘such a time as this’ because we are living in a world of horrible sin as in the days of sodom and gomorrah. May God bless you and enlighten you to His wonderful truths and freedom

  17. sandy Says:

    I forgot to say – it was a miracle how Be In Health ministry came in my path -a miracle, because God knew my seeking heart and He has done it so many times -presenting ministry that “just pops” in my path after diligent prayer. yes, i sus it out but it’s usually ministry that is such inspiration and hope to my life and family. I had been seeking the Lord about healing for about a year -really seeking Him and telling Him I wanted the truth -how to line up God’s word with healing -then checking for a friend who had a very tough childhood, a deliverance ministry in US advised us that they were basing the spiritual roots of disease from Be In Health Ministry and the book “a more excellent way” because in their many yrs of deliverance have found this to be very fruitful. we’ve been connected to this deliverance ministry for 7 yrs and they have seen miracle after miracle -people delivered from homosexuality, lesbianism, anger, judgements, hatred, word twisting, deception etc etc – people are free, free, freeeeee. Can I just say to you that when we begin a journey of change, if we are fair dinkum and really want to step out, we can come under some severe attack from the enemy because of our desires -we’ve got to know God’s word to shake off the darkness and oppression that comes over us – cry out -ask God to take it away in Jesus name and then move onto the next level – then again attack -then cry out and overcome. that’s all very biblical and how the characters in the Bible overcame. they got serious with the Lord -they moved on through change in their inner hearts -a cutting away of junk. Eph 6 -putting on the armor of God is one of the lifesavers of Christianity -putting it on everyday – (but with it we must clean up our act -clean up our misconceptions -clean up our judgements -a desire within us to ” create in me a new heart O God”, move on past the setbacks and past hurts to a new future and hope in Christ Jesus. we’ve got to know how to go home after ministry weeks like For My Life – after Deliverance sessions -after prayer and stay free by walking in Obedience and persistance with the Lord. by rising up in Jesus Christ name and shaking off the enemy’s influences of oppression over our lives. Crying out to the Lord in prayer is absolutely wonderful, refreshing, life transforming and we are changed and made into a light for Jesus for others to see. i trust i have encouraged you. once you get past the tough hard and rocky road of dealing with junk, the Christian walk becomes much easier and just beautiful. Obviously more percentage of people attending Be In Health are blessed than not, so may God bless and keep you and restore you to a special place.

  18. sandy Says:

    you’ve successfully attempted to expand on my words with your interpretation eg. Isaiah 43v18,19. I was making a positive point for a new thing in our lives – i wasn’t referring these verses to demonic or whatever. there are not too many other Christian leaders presenting a more excellent way, a road of hope, -not too many are able to present a message that is in fact releasing people from disease like Henry W Wright does. it’s an awesome ministry – he and their team are not perfect, but they are on a great journey of change helping many. and did you know that the bible does not command that leaders go to seminary -did you know that -God’s Holy Spirit is alive and active leading men and women of God to help others in supernatural mighty ways. -to A MORE EXCELLENT WAY! we practice the 8 R’s to freedom and all the fine tuning of our sins and junk with the 8 R’s and wow -mighty things take place. try it and you will see.

  19. sandy Says:

    possibly if you persisted with Henry W Wrights training, you would be more changed and free person today -if you moved past the setbacks and showed a bit of grace -yes, you would be a really free person today as Henry W Wright is a man after God’s own heart who seeks intimate times with the Lord and cries out to Him often. again -get him out of your box as he like you and I does have some flaws but he is changeable -desiring a renewed mind and heart. as a leader, he is more a focus, but Henry is willing and ready to be a new person for God daily. when we walk with God, what we were 10 yrs ago is not what we are today. what we were 5 yrs ago is not what we are today. what we were 6mths ago is not what we are today NOTE: IF WE ARE SEEKING CHANGE DAILY. This blog is wrong -you think you have the right to judge and put wright wrong -but as a man after God’s own heart out there doing a very good thing, you have no right but pray. you are trying to influence minds of people who may feel led and with prospects to be greatly helped by the ministry of Be In Health. just imagine what is on you if you lead people away from a unique ministry that could save their life. this blog is an utter work of the enemy – no doubt about that -i’ve felt led to come back and add because you need to have the truth and the truth to set you free.

      Actually, the most persistent of members who were there 10 plus years are sicker than they started, they studeied and sat at the feet of the magic man himself. . Mr Wright himself is very sick. If the teaching is so fantastic…why was he so so sick? What blocks and or devils did he have? (I could suggest a few that perhaps he has). But when he woke up from surgery…WHAMO! a new revelation from God. BLECH. I can’t stomach even thinking about those people. I am still shocked by sheeple who follow this man. But they are weak and sick and can’t help themselves.

  20. sandy Says:

    Yes, in Jesus Christ name -this blog is from evil intent -though people portray their views with ‘their’ Biblical followup, dissect every paragraph -it is evil and designed to bring a ministry down -to condemn – there is no benefit for such a blog -it does not lift anyone up but pursues evil intent against God’s ministry to seeking hearts. it is a word-twisting, perverted slant of the evil one to destroy a ministry God has designed for great purpose. the devil hates a ministry who encourages people to get to the roots of their sin issues -he absolutely detests it and will do anything to destroy the man at the leadership and a ministry with nothing but great Godlly, Kingdom intent. I pray against this blog that it will achieve nothing -that it will be destroyed. really in 12mths there isn’t too much response -think about it -whats the real purpose!!! go and start a blog against Christians who promote gay activity and you will benefit greatly -not a blog against a man of God who is doing a work rich for God’s kingdom……..God bless you rich

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      The purpose of this blog is to give information to those who are seeking the truth about Henry Wright’s ministry. How do you know what the intent of this blog is? Are you being judgmental? God has allowed this blog to exist. God will lead those who need to hear my message to this blog. I have nothing against Henry Wright personally. It would thrill me to no end to have him continue his ministry in an orthodox manner. I know people who have asked him to rewrite his book and even volunteered to him him rewrite”A More Excellent Way” so that it was not so disorganized and full of errors. He is not open to the change that you claim that he is seeking. Have I put you down in anyway? I have been trying to encourage you to seek the truth. As two Christians we should be able to reason together for the faith but you respond emotionally with generalities not with biblical reasoning by attacking this blog. Reason with me. Where am I mistaken?

      Take rest in the peace of Christ. HE is in control.

      I really don’t think name calling is necessary. That is our human aspect coming out, which is why God sent us his son. Which is why we need our saviour. Christians aren’t perfect- we are forgiven. God gives us all free will, he warns us that many will come in his name that are not from him (speaking of HW). The deception is so crafty that they even may convince the elite. Which is why God tells us to have an answer to everyman and to be able to reason out of the scriptures.. God’s word is infallible. Henrys doctorine is not. I know he waves his Bible around, but the Mormons also carry their bible around and use various scriptures. Does that make them right ?- No , why? Because they do not follow the teaching of the whole bible, but what was recieved from the Angel of Light that their founder spoke with (Joseph- I believe- it’s been awhile). Now Henry agrees it is not the angel of Light that he got his info from.. But, No Doubt in my mind it was another form. The devil carry’s many disguises, and is very crafty! He comes not to steal, but to kill and destroy. He hates us because we are created in the image of God Almighty, and nothing is off limits. It is a battle for souls. Think of all those people who thought their doctor prescribed drugs were evil and died, but since Henry’s new revelation, doctor prescribed drugs are not demonic. This tells me that (aside from all the scripture mistakes) his information is NOT coming from the Almighty, because God DOESNTmake mistakes. Henry learned from this experience because it was life and death. But out of his own “ministry” you can’t oppose the teaching because they say it is a demon. If he will not stand to be reasoned with then how will he continue to grow, and how many people will not experience this life as a gift from God? But die in despair. Actually this HW – Be in Health organization is very similiar to the Jehovah Witness organization. (Control, Fear and Isolation.) Only they changed the word of God by removing scriptures, Will Henry?

      I believe in being prepared in speaking the word of God in outreach, there is NO WAY I could ever follow Be In Health teaching because I could not use the Bible to back it up.

      If the Henry Wright doctorine was something simple like not wearing hats to church then, who cares. But it is bigger than that – he has made himself as the ultimate leader. I’m not saying he is the antichrist, but in the last days even the antichrist will preform signs and miracles (2 Corinthians 11:15)

      I believe the intent of this blog is to warn, That’s what God tells us to do. Not our fault Henry’s doctorine cannot compare with God’s word.
      God tells us to warn people otherwise their blood is on our hands , but if we warn them and they listen not; then their own blood is on their head. (Ezekiel 3:19)

      I have verses to back up everthing I referenced in God’s word.

      Sandy I see no intent on this blog to bring a minister down. I do see a clear desire that Henry Wright be restored to Biblical accountability. Even those who felt injured by his false teaching or elements of Biblical interpretive inaccuracies (those that are contradicted within the scripture as a whole) are praying for his recovery of health and that God would help him clearly understand the correct way to divide the word of God. It has been pointed out how the misdeeds of many faith healers have turned potential converts away (Robert Tilton is one I can recall). While Mr Wright does not call himself a faith healer there is a chilling common thread between them which is automatically blaming the sick for a lack of healing. It may be true in some cases but the Bible and Jesus himself (see red letters John 9:1-5) indicate this cannot be assumed as it is clearly shown not to be true in all cases. Those who believe they have been harmed and I can understand why are just as passionate about protecting others from suffering the same hurt as you are about defending him. Two different experiences but in the end there is only one written authority which is the Bible. If a teaching out of the Bible contradicts other scripture we must reject the teaching and try to help the one who is in error while also trying to protect those who might be led astray (even when the motives are good).

    RE CURSES: i do hear what you are saying about curses because I’ve heard your interpretation from others -it’s a conservative view and so offtrack. Jesus Christ died on the cross to have the curse broken, but why are so many people broken, bound and beaten up – i’m talking about Christian people -they can put on a good front but not healed and delivered – they are depressed, not free – lack of knowledge destroys familes (hosea 4v6) i’ve been there myself until we faced a serious trial – see Romans 7 -Paul wanted to do the right thing but failed, he struggled like all of us. Many pastors, leaders and people have claimed freedom and still bound by pornography, rejection, fear, deception etc and want to be free but can’t break it -deliverance ministers are facing pastors all the time with addictive behaviors that try and overcome them. Pastors!!! its a reality – the curse was broken but it doesn’t leave there -in our christian walks we have something to do about it – we must appropriate action to rid the curses from our lives -i’ve come with the power and authority that Jesus Christ gives to us to defeat the enemy and break curses over my life that were in fact generational -there were definete generational curses that I had to take action to remove them from my life -my daily prayers wouldn’t give victory but when i got serious against the devil – wow -the burdens lifted at calvary and release came. the old testament Deuteronomy speaks of curses but if you come from the mindset i think you do, you don’t use the old testament for application today. they are real believe me – you see it time and time again with alcoholics, anger, abuse etc from grandfather, to father to son etc until someone chooses to defeat it. i could quote more but you seek the Lord for yourself with an open mind. we come from a conservative church background and faced a situation 14yrs ago that we never dream we would face -after serious crying out in prayer to our Father God over a period of seeking, He answered us with the term “generational curse” -we’d never heard it before -2 tape sets by Pastor Larry Huch turned up on our doorstep and we couldn’t believe how it confirmed what we were going through. God was enlightening us to more of His word -He was illuminating His word -enlarging His word through this pastor. other christian magazines came and we continually were bombarded with the term “generational curses”. God was teaching us through these ministers of faith to help us on our tough journey to be healed and whole. Again I say – deal with the strongholds in your life -seriously deal with them and you will lose the desire to have a blog like this i challenge you to do the “for my life online” course -as you learn of all strongholds that we all have over us, apply them through prayer, you will be a changed person for the Lord. Persevere…persist and you’ll be a winner. just remember, if people follow your present method, they will stay bound – do what Pastor Henry W Wright encourages from God’s word and you will be a free man and see many others freed. May the light of Jesus Christ shine upon you.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Sandy you mentioned Generational Curses. Here is an interesting article that you might find interesting. Biblical Answers to Questions Raised by the phrase “visit the inquities to the third and fourth generation” by Bob DeWaay

      If you are interested in this lengthy article I can send it to you via e-mail.

      We need to reject as unbiblical any teaching that says that those who put their hope and trust in Christ are likely cursed. God has pronounced us blessed. Balaam could not curse God’s blessed people, neither can anyone else. The Bible says, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord” (Jeremiah 17:7). That is the simple version. The false teachers are hopelessly confused and give no hope or assurance. They put us back in bondage, and thus the teachings themselves and their perpetrators are accursed (Galatians 1:8) according to God’s Word.

      • Scooter B Says:

        I Googled the article Shawn referenced above regarding the misinterpretations involved with generational curses. In just the first page alone the basis of this teaching (generational curses) is clearly contradicted within the very same chapters and books of the Bible that they take their quotes from.

        I found the article is available as a PDF download here:

        You simply cannot arrive at the correct interpretation of scripture without at a minimum reading the entire chapter, knowing the context of the passage and understanding Who was being addressed (individual(s) or a group of people, the historical and cultural context of to whom it was written and also cross examining your conclusions with core scriptural doctrines.

        I find the fact that neither Sandy or any other defenders of Dr Wright’s false teachings will in any way address the overwhelming BIBLICAL testimony against the many false teachings included in A More Excellent Way and taught by this ministry deeply disturbing. My concern is for their spiritual well being and susceptibility to accepting other false teachings without an understanding of how to examine a teachings worthiness not by personal experience but against strict Biblical guidelines.

        Please note I am not making any personal assessment regarding the intent of their heart, their salvation or sincerity in their beliefs but without an overwhelming commitment to Scriptural Authority we are all likes ships without a rudder to be tossed to and fro by any popular or experienced waves of doctrine.

        Biblical authority and integrity (Sola Scriptura) clearly is not a priority or foundational to what is being “taught” by or to the practitioners of this unBiblical dotrine . If it were so we would have seen some of the “Let us reason together” through the examination of scripture and at least one single response somewhere to the many specific teachings that have been pointed out that clearly contradict other scriptures.

  22. David S Says:

    When did Mr. Wright have heart surgery? I pray that the doctors were successful and that he has a speedy and complete recovery. Perhaps this will help to change the thoughts he expresses about doctors in his book.
    Disease and sickness is generally the downfall of all of the popular “healers” The whole of creation is deteriorating, including them. We will all eventually die. Those who die while abiding IN CHRIST will go to the only place where there is no sickness or disease.
    What spin has he put on the heart illness that required doctors’ intervention?

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I believe it was Thursday, 6/23/11. I too would like to know the answer to that question!

      • Eric Says:

        Henry Wright did, in fact, have a massive heart attack while running a confrence in Trinidad. He had multiple bypass surgery in responce in Trinidad. While recovering he also wound up with at least 6 infected wounds (primarily at the sights of his incisions.

        Also, he suffered congestive heart failure in September 2011.

        He posted a 15 minute video with his wife on the Be In Health Facebook page. He says that he has lost over 40 pounds (and it does appear that way from the video.) He says he is doing well and remains strong in his faith.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Wolf Henry Wrong is reaping what he’s sown, and suffering from self-judgment in his hypocrisy.

        After all, he’s only “79% clear of dead works, and that, only from dark grey to light grey in the last 25 years of doing this”… according to HIS OWN WORDS.

        He condemns himself.

        Sad, but true.

  23. 123angelCindy Pruss Says:

    Henry Wright had open heart surgery on June 23, 2011. He had suffered a heart atrtack shortly before that date. I don’t know what his theory is on why this happened. But I can tell you he is an older man and extremely overweight. He probably just needed to eat healthier, rest more, and take better care of himself. This Sandy on here says that people aren’t healed at that ministry because they don’t repent and except responsibility for their sin. She cannot answer this for everyone. The Lord’s prayer even says “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” It is not always God’s will to heal. If that were true there would be no cemetaries. When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, that ended it for us all. We live in a now fallen world, and NO ONE is excempt from that fact! Death is part of that curse. I always notice how a man reacts to someone questioning his beliefs. If they act like Jesus, then I have some respect for them. If the carry on and on I deeply question them.

  24. Cindy Says:

    I only wish that this blog had been on here when I left my little children, and husband to stay in this cult for six months. I lived, breathed, and witnessed, first hand what this cult is about. The Bilble warns us to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. It also warns that in the last days even the elect would be deceived if it were possible. We live in a satan filled world of deception. We must always ask God to sharpen His Spirit of Discernment in our lives. Thank you so much World Press for letting me share my story. Now, I will pray about writing a book about what happened.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:


      How did you EVER get “delivered” from this cult after SIX MONTHS being immersed in it?

      Please do tell, i’m dying to hear it.


      • Cindy Pruss Says:

        Thomas, it took me a very long time to get straightened out. First of all, I was blessed with a praying mother. Secondly, I kept praying and praying myself, for the Holy Spirit to show me the Truth. If you have read all of my comments on here, it was a long hard process. God also led me to a Christian Counselor that kept pointing out Henry’s lies. After being in a cult, your mind keeps going back and forth like a ping pong ball , but the one that gets the glory for bringining me out was my own personal deprogrammer the Holy Spirit. As I’ve pointed out on here so many times one must pray for the spirit of discernment in their lives, and excercise that gift, for such are the days that we live in so deceptive.

Only having to answer to a very loving, forgiving God! It was worth every ounce of my life to get that back again!

  25. David S Says:

    Sandy, Thou dost protest too much! It appears to me that you are the one with the problem. It truly appears that you have set up an idol in your heart and are upset with those who would dare attack it. If Henry Wright’s work is of God then there is nothing anyone can do to tear it down. This piddly blog will have no bearing on a true work of God. So RELAX!

  26. David S Says:

    I do not wish to have my e-mail flooded with the rantings of this irrational woman any longer. I think that she is a great exhibit for the terrible influence this ministry is having on people. Mr. Wright and Be In Health have become an idol in her heart and she defends him with cult-like fanaticism. She accuses you of doing just what she is doing to you. She will not argue rationally, just like her mentor will not defend his theology because he knows that it won’t stand up. They just want to call names and make unfounded claims. Mr. Wright is no different from the other manipulative, brainwashing frauds of the Word of Faith movement. He just has a more deceptive package for his false teaching

    The true Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (KJV)

    Sandy’s version of Jeremiah 33v3 ” Cry out to Me and I will show you great and mighty things, secret things, fenced in things, absolutely incredible things, wonderful, magnificent, marvellous that only I can tell you.” a bit of an expanded version i’ve been using as a prayer for the last 12mths,

    Mr Wrights entire program is extra biblical, supposedly based on revelations God gave directly to him and only to him.
    Heb 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
    Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    Sola Scriptura. Enough said.

    this blog is an interpretation of wrightiswrong that is ‘their’ view and it seems a broad view of Christians who claim an absolute right view in their opinion. this view in essence sounds good and right but is not entirely correct with a slant of the evil one. Those in control of this blog beware. this blog portrays a negative blatant view of Henry Wright though there are thousands who have had their lives changed in miracles and set their hearts in right standing with the Lord. what are you doing to change the hearts and lives of people in this world? the pharisees proclaimed they were right, but what impact did they really have? judged, criticized, mocked the works of Jesus. after reading this blog, why not also rag other ministries that are presenting a watered version of the gospel message. this ministry in question is unique in that they preach a way that individuals can understand the Bible in practical ways with the power of the Holy Spirit moving to help them expose their spiritual roots of sin and disease. sin is defined for how the Bible speaks it. this theory of yours may continue, but the truth, intimacy with God, a personal relationship, a Holy devotion to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, our Father God in Heaven, the prince of peace and ruler of this universe is in control of all things, an encouragement to deal with our sin and garbage, an exaltation of His name, a thankful and grateful heart, a desire to be a man or woman after Gods heart, a seeking to create in me a new heart O Lord, a renewal and change of our mind to be of the same mind of Christ, a yearning to be a part of the Great Commission to be used to bring honor and glory to His Holy precious name. this will prove more than anything wrightiswrong portrays on this blog. Ps 103v3, Is 54v17 and the list goes on with a Bible full of encouragement. this ministry Be In Health veers us back to a relationship with a loving God and how to relate to one another reaching those around us and in the market places with a message of Jesus Christ. God allows us to help the unsaved, bound, lost, hurting, divorced, abused, broken-hearted in practical means to draw them to the saving, healing, deliverance message written in His word. stop in your tracks and consider what you do as wright is more right than wright is wrong

        i would have to write a book and waste too much of my good time if i had to argue your case – you are no doubt setting yourself as judge and jury – yes do what you must do yourself for your own peace of mind but you don’t have to prove your views to the whole world. it doesn’t matter what a person says to object to this blog, you will have an answer – nothing anyone says against your opinion will win a debate in your eyes as you are always right. take my advice – stand down from your calling to religiously critique this ministry and begin efforts to reach the world as Henry Wright and many other good well meaning imperfect people do. your efforts are to no avail. let God be overall judge of Henry Wright. You’ve been hurt and you want to get back at the man and what they do, your hurt protrudes from this blog. do yourself a favor and own up, take responsibility for your own troubles, forgive the man – stop trying to prove by arguing theory and that you must convince everyone else he is wrong as it won’t do anything to further your journey. please don’t reply and justify your reasons, instead deeply forgive, take ownership of what belongs to you, rid the bitterness and unforgiveness – you have so much to tear the man and ministry down it’s unbelievable. i believe it’s hard, but you must do it – push through and past it all. you have great potential to do greater things -move past the roadblocks and journey forward to great and mighty things for the Kingdom of God.

      I hear you man. There is only perfection in Yahshua. Only He is perfect in His message. His messengers are human, and we are on a journey. I would rather listen, learn and apply a clearly explained Biblical truth, that brings results then waste my time arguing. I can understand a ‘word of caution’, but doesn’t that go without saying, especially in the sea of voices in the world today? Everybody’s an expert it seems. But humble is the way. Rend your hearts and cry out to Him and He will answer. The core message of Wright is correct and biblically sound. While other things may not be spot on, the heart of the message is correct. As an aside, not sure if I saw it on this site, but it’s sad how people jump to saying the Law of Moses is done away with when Yahshua Himself said that GREAT would be those that do and teach it (Mat. 5:19). I could go on, but we all need to ‘study to show thyself approved’ and quit parroting ‘educated’ religious authorities.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Henry Wright causes division among families and is a false teacher.

        Romans 16:17-18 ESV / 201 helpful votes

        I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.

        Galatians 5:7-12Living Bible (TLB)

        7 You were getting along so well. Who has interfered with you to hold you back from following the truth? 8 It certainly isn’t God who has done it, for he is the one who has called you to freedom in Christ. 9 But it takes only one wrong person among you to infect all the others.

        The false teachers are hindering the Christians from obeying the truth of the gospel with all their talk about joining the Jewish people and keeping the law. All those who get the church off on a tangent, away from the clear direction given by the central truth of the gospel, are false teachers. They should be disqualified and excluded from the churches.

        Second, false teachers replace the call of God with their own deceptive persuasiveness. That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you, Paul informs his readers. When Paul had preached the gospel, the Galatians heard the voice of God calling them through Paul (1:6). But when the false teachers teach, all that can be heard is flattery, boastfulness (Henry) and empty rhetoric. They are skillful orators (Henry). No doubt they claim to be giving God’s message backed by Scripture. But all one can hear through their strident voices is a harsh repetition (Henry) of the demands of the law. What a contrast to “the one who called you by the grace of Christ” (1:6) and the God who “called me by his grace” (1:15). Their message is all about the works of the law, not about God’s work of grace in Christ. So obviously their persuasion does not come from God, who always calls by his grace.

        Third, false teachers gain control over the whole church (v. 9). Just as a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough, so the negative influence of a few false teachers has penetrated the whole church and is quickly coming to control the direction of the church. False teachers are like that; they seek to dominate every situation in the life of the church.

        Fourth, false teachers cause confusion and discouragement (v. 10). When the Galatians were converted, they related to God with the joyful confidence of children, calling him “Abba, Father” through the Spirit. But their confidence in God’s grace has been badly shaken by the false teachers, who threaten them with the judgment of God if they do not keep the law of God. They are confused and discouraged. So Paul reassures the Galatians of his confidence in the Lord regarding them: I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. And then he turns the tables on the false teachers by putting them under the judgment of God: The one who is throwing you into confusion will pay the penalty, whoever he may be.

        Fifth, false teachers spread false reports about spiritual leaders (Henry). We may infer that verse 11 is Paul’s response to a false report that had been given about him. Since the immediate context focuses on the corrupting influence of the false teachers, it seems reasonable to suppose that they claimed Paul’s support for their campaign to circumcise the Gentile believers. We don’t know on what basis they would have done this. Perhaps if this letter was written after Paul circumcised Timothy, as recorded in Acts 16:3, they may have appealed to that incident. Or maybe they pointed to Paul’s own willingness to continue his Jewish way of life even after his conversion (see 1 Cor 9:20). Whatever their basis may have been, they gave a false report about Paul to strengthen their own position.

        Paul had, of course, preached circumcision before his conversion. He had been “extremely zealous for the traditions” of Judaism (1:14). But after his conversion he preached the cross of Christ as the only way of salvation. True, he continued to support Jewish Christian adherence to the traditional Jewish way of life. But he consistently resisted anyone who tried to “force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs” (2:14). (Henry Wright) That was a key point of his autobiography (1:13–2:21). Paul proves that the report that he is still preaching circumcision is false by pointing to the fact that he is being persecuted (5:11). Both non-Christian Jews and many Christian Jews fiercely opposed him precisely because he did not require circumcision. His refusal to require circumcision clearly implied that it was not necessary to belong to the Jewish nation to belong to the covenant people of God. By denying the exclusive claim of the Jewish people to be the only true people of God, Paul seemed to deny the reason for the Jewish people’s very existence. No wonder, then, that they persecuted him from one country to another. If Paul had preached circumcision, then he would not have been persecuted by the Jews. By preaching circumcision, he would have been communicating that it was necessary to belong to the Jewish nation because the salvation of God was available only to those within this nation.

        Paul says in verse 11 that if he has communicated that salvation is only in the Jewish nation by preaching circumcision, the offense of the cross has been abolished. For then the message that salvation is only through the cross of Christ would have been denied. The offense of the cross is that it denies a “most favored nation” status, a “superior race” category, as the reason for God’s blessing. For the blessing of God comes only through the cross, where the judgment of God upon all was removed by Christ’s death (see 3:13-14). The message of Christ crucified is offensive not only to Jews but also to the pride of all who want to claim some personal merit as the basis of God’s approval.
        It is never pleasant to expose the deceptive, destructive tactics of the “false brothers.” But it is necessary to do so in order to protect the freedom of fellow Christians. Of course circumcision is not an issue today. But we are constantly faced with a choice between different religious options. They are not all the same; they are not all spokes on a wheel leading to the same hub. Some religious options lead to slavery and imprisonment. Only by obedience to the truth of the gospel of Christ can we protect the freedom that is ours in Christ.

    get an explosive vision for the lost in this world and you will extinguish this blog. we are in a world of false messages with a desensitizing, a conditioning of our minds away from a Biblical training. more harmful than anything the book ‘a more excellent way’ portrays. this book and this ministry is against the devils influences in this world and they (the negative influences) are vast and overwhelming amidst a generation of young children, teenagers and young adults. Harry Potter, Warcraft demonic computer games, dungeons and dragons, a vast array of witchcraft, new age, the secret movement, scorcerers, homosexuality/lesbianism and the increase in governments accepting gay marriage and families, fornication, adultery, living together before marriage is the done thing these days but unbiblical. the list goes on and on. Yes, keep within the confines of truth in the word of God, but these subjects listed here are reality in this lost broken and dying world, many practical steps are needed and are used to reach those lost to this worlds immoralities. we need practical encouragement to bring a people back to the power of His Word and Holy Spirit. Ministries like Be In Health and many others are working hard to combat these ungoldly traits and help to raise more of the next generation for greater success. we all can be a part of this Great Commission and give up the need to tear christian ministries apart, intimidate, critisize, condemn, judge as some choose to do. take heart and be encouraged.

      Wow! I totally agree with you. “we are in a world of false messages with a desensitizing, a conditioning of our minds away from a Biblical training.” and this is exactly what I believe Henry Wright is doing since not one of your comments can address one error in my reasoning.

      1. Can we talk about God’s sovereignty verses man’s manipulation of God. Are all sick people out of alignment with God? Does God ever let a person suffer who is not a sinner? Yes, we should take up the challenge to spread truth! Or
      2. Can we talk about generational sin? What the old testament and the new testament says about this issue? or
      3 Can we talk about about what the bible says about blessing and curses? OR

      Let us reason together on just one topic! You can pick a topic of your choice that you feel I am in error about.
      May the peace of God be upon you!

        wrightiswrong, i won’t address your errors because there are too many of them and nothing anyone says against this blog will please you. much of it is a twisted version of the truth to prove this theory is correct and nothing i could say will convince you while in your present mindset. God’s sovereignty is absolutely wonderful – he is sovereign over all. he is in control over all. your view of generational sin is not correct – your view of curses and blessing are not correct. they are theory, but are not correct. take some advice, others also have opinion, others have relationship, deep rooted relationship with a loving Father God because they have genuinely been saved, healed delivered and set free through practical prayer and ministry from past generational curses that are very obvious in millions of families across this world. your theory does not stand a test of change. May God’s peace be upon you

    This is exactly what all of these people say. They will not reason because their positions are not defensible. Even their guru Mr. Wright won’t defend his positions. They just know what they know, listening to a preacher who scratches their itching ears. The doing of wonders is no proof that this is of God as a matter of fact my bible tells me that in the last days it will be a sign of deceivers. Satan himself can appear as a angel of light. False teachers abound and Mr. Wright is one of them.
    I pray that God will reveal him to his followers for what he truly is.

      David S – you are missing something incredible. no-one can argue a deep and personal relationship and journey with the Lord that is a journey of intimate prayer, reading and applying God’s Word. no-one can. no-one can argue a journey of a person who has been through tragedy, trial and persecution, loss and pain and found healing because of a relationship with a loving Father God, miracles, mysteries, healing and wholeness because of practical steps used to apply the word of God with encouragement from ministries who steer a victim of deep pain to their own sin and struggles -when these are eradicated from within after persistence and perseverence, I mean down on our knees crying out to our maker of Heaven and earth to bring healing and wholeness, our desire to have a renewed heart and mind, to be cleansed and made anew – no-one can argue with testimony that is real and without a doubt transforming and renewing, change of a person once bound and overwhelmed by dark clouds of life’s sad circumstances. the focus now taken off one’s own problems and a whole focus on our loving Father with a passionate desire to tell others the saving, healing, delivering work of an almighty God. (the Gospels and New Testament) No-one can argue a persons real experience with the Lord as they journey with Him continuing in prayer and supplication and reading and taking in His Words. No-one – No theory that has no basis for ultimate change and room for the mighty miraculous power of the Holy Spirit to work wonderful, marvelous, all powerful results. No-one No-one can take that away from a person – no-one can intimidate, condemn, judge a mighty work of our counsellor, friend, Holy Spirit, companion in a persons life. No-one. No-one. All Honor and Glory, adoration and praise to God the Father, God the Son Jesus and precious Holy Spirit for His healing, unending, miraculous work in this world we live. amidst the chaos and immoralities of a dark and dying world – He is Sovereign over all. AMEN

      • David S Says:

        I have a strong, deep, intimate and wonderful relationship with the Almighty God and with the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit dwells in me to empower me daily in all things. But my relationship with the father is based on my love for him and my desire to do HIS will and not my desire for him to do my will. I am to accept the things that HE gives me in this life and HE has taught me much through pain, sickness and injury. I am to have FAITH that HE knows what is best for me and that He loves me. I would not part with the lessons he has taught me through my weakness and pain. If I had sought to have them removed I would have missed these.

      • outback Says:

        David S -that is wonderful you have intimate relationship with the Lord. i was not saying you did not, but no-one can argue a testimony of faith, perseverance and dedication and devotion to God along with ministry that veers us back to our own issues of sin and junk -that brings tremendous freedom a blessing as we all connect with people, pastors, ministries that help us greatly. we don’t have to justify – i don’t need to expand with wrightiswrong -it will not achieve. Exodus 14v14 “the Lord himself will fight for you, You won’t have to lift a finger in your defense!” we don’t have to set straight a ministry or Pastor, provided we’ve made all attempts to reconcile, forgive, be at peace, we allow God to do the work that must be done. we need to bless those who curse us. there is too much to do in this world without wasting our time ragging ministries. there is more work that must be done!!

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        I have a question for you. Does God only heals invisible ailments that cannot be verified?
        God never instantly strips 200 pounds of ugly fat right off of an immensely obese bikini-clad woman with a glandular problem, with some independent witnesses. God never puts new legs or arms on amputees on. Nope, it’s always cancer, arthritis, paralysis, gall bladders, blindness, pinched nerves, or other things that the TV camera cannot see; things where independent verification is not possible. And, where verification is possible, like with the Viet Nam Veterans who have been paraplegics since the War, well, God doesn’t bother to fix any of them in faith-healing ceremonies. God never fixes their broken spinal cords or replaces their lost legs. God doesn’t seem to like the Viet Nam Vets who have authentic medical records. The Lord sure does work in mysterious ways. Maybe we could encourage these injured souls instead of adding to their pain. If you real want to find a person who is making an impact on this world read. “Life without limits“.by Nick Vujicic. Born without arms or legs and is bring people to Christ by the thousands without deception but with truth.

    The closer the body of Christ moves toward the time of the end,the more important the ability to DISCERN will be, for there will not only be false prophets with false words, but also there will arise a higher level of spiritual wickedness that causes a spiritual clash like that between Elijah and the false prophets of Baal! Quote be Perry Stone

  33. 123angelCindy P Says:

    I was reading a book written by Perry Stone, and I quote him as saying this. “The closer the body of Christ moves toward the time of the end, the more important the ability to DISCERN will be, for there will not only be false prophets with false words, but also there will arise a higher level of spiritual wickedness that causes a spiritual clash like that between Eiljah and the false prophets of Baal!” A couple of years ago I was watching a show about poligomy. The children in this cult were dancing to regular secular christian music. They were in what appeared to be devout prayer, praise and worship, and reading their Bible, plus they have their Book of Mormom. Just because people read their Bibles and pray, does not mean that the teachings that they follow besides that are true and correct. This is all going to come out on judgement day, and that might be even sooner that we think. Christians are to fear God first, follow God first, and believe on His Son Jesus Christ to be saved, healed delivered, sanctified. Our works are as filthy rags according to the Bible. Anyone who claims to hear from God, and have all the goods on healing should be questioned. It is public knowledge on the internet that Henry made one and a half MILLION DOLLARS last year from this false doctrine. Everyone on here exposing this cult, knows first hand from experience that it is not right!!!! You will never change our minds or run us off, or prove anything otherwise.

  34. David S Says:

    The fact is that men like this will arise…

    Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

    AND we owe to our brothers and sisters to blow the trumpet . Whether or not they heed the warning is between them and God

    Eze 33:2 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:
    Eze 33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
    Eze 33:4 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.
    Eze 33:5 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.
    Eze 33:6 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.

    • outback Says:

      David S, Yes, I agree – I’m well aware of false christs and false prophets. if we were to judge every minister of faith like you or this blog do, we would have no-one in the world to reach the lost. there are certainly men or women out there proclaiming a power – hype – a fantacy all in the name of money to build an empire around them, there’s also a type of gospel watered down message that tickles many ears – carnal – apathetic – anything goes. a large element of New Age teaching creeping into the church of people deceiving many, proclaiming just BELIEVE AND RECEIVE, JUST BELIEVE AND RECEIVE!! WITH NO, I STATE NO CONSISTENT TEACHING AGAINST SIN AND THE DESPERATE NEED FOR REPENTANCE -TO RECOGNISE OUR SIN ISSUES, BITTERNESS, JUDGMENTS, UNFORGIVENESS, JEALOUSIES, PRIDE, DECEIT, RELIGION, PERVERSION ETC. (HENRY WRIGHT IS ONE OF FEW MINISTERS WHO TELL IT HOW IT IS – WITH REPENTANCE AND TURNING AWAY FROM EVERY SIN, WOW – POWER FROM OUR HOLY UTMOST ETERNAL GOD) – a world full of gay churches (would you believe, christians agreeing with such sin) – a well known christian artist Ray Bolz proclaiming to his wife and 4 children in 2004 that he is gay now shacked up with his boyfriend. Be In Health ministry is certainly not in this catergory. it’s how you perceive it to be and your conclusion is incorrect. Look out there in this world and take an honest look at what is really happening. I came across this blog and couldn’t believe the judgments against this ministry – we’ve been thoroughly blessed by the ministry of Be In Health. absolutely thorough and certainly veers us back to reality of His words. we are cleansed and made whole and a light made bright to boldly tell others of our great big Holy most High God. Through ministry such as this, our faith is made rich, our vision for the lost increased.

      in revivals of past, through Salvation in our risen Lord, repentance is a major key that brings power and hope to a hopeless situation. Eg. if we have a bad sore on our leg at the time of salvation, that sore does not leave – put a bandaid over it and it just simply covers it up, it does not heal immediately. the same with our christian lives, we are not ALL healed at the time of salvation -the reality is, many have garbage that must be cleaned out. like our Potter and we are the clay. there is a work God wants to do in us to grow our faith. unless we dig to the roots of our bondages and strongholds, we will continue to wear a masque and cover over the bondages of past. for a fruitful life, deal with these issues and it is certainly a more excellent way – it brings something very beautiful, and something very good. What is wrong with that? absolutely biblical – absolutely right. you don’t need to reply as i know what you are trying to say, but i don’t agree with your theory and accusations toward certain ministries.

      • David S Says:

        I pray that God will grant us both wisdom and discernment in all of these matters as we each seek to honor Him and Glorify his name in everything we do.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Dear Outback, You say that “if we were to judge every minister of faith like you or this blog do, we would have no-one in the world to reach the lost.” You are making a hasty generalization. It is all of our jobs to discern the true. I listen to many ministries on the radio and they are not out in left field like this ministry. They are proclaiming the truth to all end of the world. Henry Wright’s ministry is not the only ministry ! You are making calms of bombastic idealism as others of this following do including “We are special. We are the wave of the future. The United Nations could learn something from us. Only we have a style of life worth living. You are correct in that many are following after false prophets – are you one? you are constructing an illogical argument using a Red herring: which is the fallacy that of introducing irrelevant material to the issue being discussed, so that everyone’s attention is diverted away from the points being made, towards a different conclusion. Let’s talk about Henry Wright’s ministry not what everyone else in the world is doing! You are correct in that none of us will ever be healed of our sinful nature here on earth but my belief in Jesus’s death on the cross has my sins covered, past, present and future. Nowhere in the bible does it say to hunt up all the sins you can remember in your past or in prior generations. Is the work of the cross not sufficient? Is it my works of searching, confessing and repentance that bring me my salvation?

        “For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Hebrews 9:13, 14).

        “For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8, 9).

        Salvation is not a matter of believers trying to confess and repent from every sin they commit before they die. Salvation is not based on whether a Christian has confessed and repented of every sin. Nothing we are, nothing we can do, no amount we can pay, could be enough to take away our sin and guilt. But Jesus’ blood is sufficient. (POSITIONALLY we are saved. Just as a boy sins against his father, his father aromatically forgives him because he is his son.) Oh, the inexpressible rest we can have when we accept two unchangeable truths: First, our utter inability to atone for sin. Second, the complete sufficiency of the blood of Jesus to forgive ALL our sins. I must lay down my efforts to merit forgiveness. I must cease believing I can make my account any better by a better confession, by longer devotions, by extended fasting, or by any other good work. (When I ask God to forgive me of my sins I am wanting a closer RELATIONSHIP with my father.) Those things are fine and good in my walk with Jesus, but they must be thrown off when by them I want to replace Jesus’ work for my sins. I do not need to earn forgiveness (more accurately, I cannot earn it); I can only accept it humbly. To believe on Christ is in effect to declare that He is all-sufficient to cover all my sins for all eternity. The sacrifice has been paid in full. There need be no other and no more. All my sins, past, present and future are under that blood that cleanses

        “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”[a]

        Romans 4 Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. 5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. 6 David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

        7 “Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.”[b]

        Yes, we should confess our sins to God as soon as we are aware that we have sinned to keep our relationship with God healthy but my salvation is not based on my repentance but the work of Jesus. If God remembers our sins no more than my sins wouldn’t affect my health. Sometimes we suffer from the consequences of our sins (such as smoking) but it is not a penalty for my sins or everyone who smoked would get cancer, etc.) When we place our faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, all of our sins are forgiven. That includes past, present, and future, big or small. Jesus died to pay the penalty for all of our sins, and when they are forgiven, they are all forgiven (Colossians 1:14; Acts 10:43). I am going to rest my salvation on the blood of Jesus!

  35. ANON Says:

    I personally attended this church for a few years.

    I will attest that this church is a cult and HW is a cult leader.

    David S is correct when saying that his
    teachings are “extra biblical” meaning that he has
    special revelations given only to him on scriptures.

    Some of his errors are in your face like the world before Adam
    teachings and some are subtle like his views on forgiveness
    of sin. And this is just a drop in the bucket on the amount of
    blatant error taught by this man.

    There is much psychology and studying of other cults involved
    with his teachings. He DOES know exactly what he is doing
    and how to get you hooked and keep you hooked by never
    being repentant enough or having all the devils out of your life.
    The fear is dying with iniquity in your heart and God rejecting you.(Which he teaches!) This keeps you returning to the program, needing “deeper insights” and having to buy his latest book on how many blocks between you and God you have.
    All the while, Jesus is somewhere in the background but
    you sure need to search to find him in HW’s scheme.

    I tell you the truth when I tell you that when I walked out the church door for the last time, I was spiritually bankrupt and not sure that Jesus was even Messiah. I had a complete crisis of faith. This is due to only hearing of HW special revelations (mostly dealing in the OT) and NEVER almost ever hearing about the work of Jesus Christ.

    In retrospect, as a DEVOUT christian of 25 years, I do not know how I fellfor this garbage except that I was sick and searching for healing. And if I can fall for it, so can you.

    I did not get free of this ministry and its pull until I admitted
    to myself that I had been involved in a cult.
    It has been a difficult process that I have gone thru getting set free from the bondage that all of his whacky teachings has placed in my heart. I have had to focus on the Radical GRACE of the Lord Jesus Christ! It has really worked a miraculous work in my heart and life.

    I do respectfully disagree with David S when he says this is Word of Faith teachings. I had attended WOF church for almost 12 years… While they can be extreme in wealth and health…they do preach salvation in Jesus at every service. So, I would categorize most WOF attendees are Christians who have some error in their thinking. (However, HW and WOF both esteem the Dake bible which is an oxymoron as there is nothing bible about Dake)

    BUT HW is so far out there…he cannot compare with any actual
    Christian church. He is truly a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    If I can talk just one person out of reading his books attending
    his seminars or moving to his church…that would make it all
    worth while.

    Please make sure any ministry you involve yourself
    with is CHRIST centered and has no special revelations involved.
    The gospel is simple. Jesus is LORD.

    I am glad to see someone is standing up in the face of this growing cult. Thanks wright is wrong!

    • Anjie Says:

      If anyone would like to talk with me for support as an ex HW please contact me at or on Facebook messenger. I am not out to bash but would like to share my experience and communicate with believers in grace through faith in the cross alone, no matter the sickness or struggles with sin we all face in this life. Glad to have found this blog after 8 years of brainwashing that I am still unraveling. And I have friends who attend there and I love very much (I actually love them all but do not agree with many of their teachings which I nearly went insane from and am still suffering post benzo withdrawal syndrome and Lyme disease without much help in tiny T-town. I’ve got quite the story too! God is faithful! I am alive despite the enemy trying to destroy me, but I serve the Lord and he has good plans for my family! Blessings and love in Christ to all which the Father gave to His beloved Son!

    a reply to Anon
    • Do you realise hundreds of pastors proclaim healing for their flock only to find 6mths later they have died. Thousands of persons die because of illness not healed though churches have sent a person home to receive their healing –(believe, receive -have deep faith and receive your healing) in fact are not healed of disease. One greater inspiration Pastor Henry Wright has over many is that he is precise, he teaches repentance, he is straight to the point, deal with your bitterness, deal with your accusations, deal with your judgements, deal with your jealousies, deal with your pride, deal with your sin FULL STOP and no one can ever deny Pastor Henry Wright sure preaches this way. if a person desires to deal with their rubbish -a renewed heart and mind, a clean heart O God. Outback talks about the potter and clay. a journey in this life is a process, a clean up of our insides to shine light for His glory.
    • Reike healing compared to healing from God. Yes many are healed of disease through techniques of reike and new age, but Non-christians do not have a deep inner peace that is available to a Christian. Non-christians do not have eternal life. If anyone applies the principles of sowing and reaping, dealing with their bitterness, jealousies, pride and more, they achieve a greater wholeness over those who don’t, (Christian or non-christian), but with God, His power, His love, His healing, His salvation, His Deliverance, His peace, a journey in this life is more exciting and inspired.
    • I’ve also read through Sandi’s writings – spot on – absolutely.
    • Beware anon –your blogs are standing on shaky ground. Open your eyes, wake up before it is too late. Ministers like pastor Henry wright are doing something very significant –they are spreading the message of hope world wide –the question is, What are you doing? What are you doing anon? What did the pharasees do? What did they do? They did not do what Jesus did and wants us to do, no, they took it in their own self-righteousness to critisise and judge, mock and ridicule.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I appreciate your point of view. Praise God for the direct teachings against sin and for repentance. Can Henry Wright do this with misleading his flock in other areas? Please remember that Satan quoted scripture to Jesus in the wilderness. Those quotes, too, were out of context which is one way Henry mislead his following.

      I am totally with you that we need a closer walk with God to gain inner peace and to have an exciting and inspired spiritual walk with God. We need to have that peace no matter what situation God places us into. This comes from spending time reading God’s word and understanding and comprehending God’s messages to us. Not by doing word studies from Henry’s dictionary. When we have a close relationship we can trust HIM to take us, through anything.

      I don’t agree with Sandi as she addresses no issues but has only emotional rhetoric.
      I really would appreciate knowing how many people the Be in Health has minister to, who have gone home only to die 6months later because Henry convinced them to get off their medication and trust in the Lord. I would like to know how many have gone home disillusioned because they were not healed. If God did not heal them then did God also not forgive them of their sins. Did they walk away from God because we misrepresent our LORD? I don’t believe there is any follow up on these poor souls because the truth is not really wanted. Henry claims to be into science. A follow up is the only scientific way to see the results of such a ministry as Be in Health.

      You may make claims of bombastic idealism “Pastors like Henry Wright are doing something very significant –they are spreading the message of hope world wide”. My question is he spreading HENRY”S truth or GOD’s truth. Henry Wright seem to be preaching a different message than many other orthodox Christian pastors.

      Scotty you accuse Anon on being on shaky ground. Before we look at the log in someone else’s eye maybe we need to take a serious look at our own. Your arguments are full of fallacies.
      Just because Henry’s ministry is world wide does it make it true? You are using a “Red herring” This fallacy is committed when irrelevant material is introduced to the issue being discussed, so that everyone’s attention is diverted away from the points being made, towards a different conclusion. Are we talking about how each of us is serving God and how the pharisees fell short OR about the errors of Henry’s ministry? The title of this blog is “ Is Henry Wright or Wrong?”
      Anon is not a pastor, pastors are held to a higher standard. I also, didn’t see your list of contributions to God’s work.

      Do you remember the The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard Matthew 20 in the end 9 “The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 12 ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’ 13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’ God will pay as he deems right. I will not judge, “who is doing what for the Lord.

      Nowhere in the bible, that I know of , does God ask me to monitor the works of others, but HE does expect me to test the prophets and pastors. 2 Timothy 2 15Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 1 John 4:1-6Beloved, do NOT Believe EVERY spirit (those CLAIMING to SPEAK BY THE SPIRIT), but TEST the SPIRITS, whether they are of God; because MANY FALSE PROPHETS have gone out into the World. So instead of condemning our work you should be commending us for a questioning and responding to our queries. May the Lord bless your day and open all our eyes to his truth.

        I just came to this website to do some research on Henry Wright, (being directed by a friend who visited Henry’s compound and thought he was on to something) to help a friend who is in desperate depression and anxiety.

        I must say it grieves me to see Christians tearing down other believers, no matter how loving and eloquent you word it. No wonder the world is not running to Jesus when they see His people not in unity. This kind of of debate is what starts wars! (even though this is most civil and mature debate I’ve read in along time without cuss words – and the first I’ve ever responded to leave feedback because it may be received)

        Now, I do not agree with Sandy in that this website is of satan and should be taken down. God is not de-throned by our questions about Him or what His Word really means. He(God), is on trial throughout the bible with King David screaming, Why God?…..You have done this or that… Job, God is on trial. Our questions and debates do not bother Him. It probably gives Him a good laugh – but, it shows we want more of Him, to know Him, to understand His ways. So, to take this website down would be robbing freedom of speech, communistic and we’re suppose to question(test) and grow.

        But, the opinions on here are not questions – they are people disagreeing on what truth is, each one with their absolute belief. NONE of us will know the whole truth until we see Him face to face. We are working out our salvation.

        The one thing we all need to keep in mind is – do we all believe Jesus is the Son of God and the only way in which to enter His Kingdom. If we do, forgive the level of belief each one is at.

        What do I mean by that? My brother was a severe drug addict up until his early 20’s when he was faced being killed by gangs. He cried out, “God, if you deliver me from this – I will devote my life to You.” Well, God supernaturally allow him to walk right out of the ring of people holding weapons to kill him. He then devoted his life to God – getting involved in a church to the point of being creepy. I could hardly be around him as he was so dripping wet with Christianese (language of Christians not being real) in that he couldn’t address me as his sister in normal language (like,”Hey sis, how are you doing”) – but addressed me, “How’s my beloved sister in Christ, (as he shut his eyes moaning and say) God bless you,etc. etc. etc. It made me want to knock on his head and say, “Hello, McFly – is anyone in there.(From the movie, Back to the future) But, I came to a realization and coined a phrase:

        You are as religious as it takes to keep you straight(from destroying yourself).

        I’ve walk with God for 55 years now and in those years great revelations came that was like peeling the blinders off – in that – I had a belief, and God brought me to a new level of understanding His ways and His Word that left the old belief behind. Haven’t we all understood a scripture to mean something, only to find out later(as we mature) is has a whole different meaning to it, deeper, wider?

        At the first few revelations and understanding His Word thru much research, I was like every one here, wanting to enlighten people, to show where people were wrong in their belief so they could have greater truth. How arrogant! Oh ye believer with much timber in your eye.

        One revelation God shared with me after the above awareness of arrogance is, “When I open your eyes to see greater truth, it is for you alone. Only when you have walk out this revelation/understanding will you have the grace and love to share it with others – then it won’t come across as judgement.”

        Now with many layers of the blinders (onion) peeled away – in that – with each one, I have to read the whole bible a new. I find my old beliefs not wrong – but a process needed and a walk to understand Him more deeply. I had to believe a certain way to get me to the next level – like my brother who is now a tangible, normal Christian (if there is a such thing as my father used to say, “People are so heavenly minded – their no earthly good”).
        Below is copied and pasted from Wrightiswrong administrator of this site: My comments will be in (parenthesis.)

        Nowhere in the bible, that I know of , does God ask me to monitor the works of others, but HE does expect me

        (Yes, He expects us as individuals to test what is truth, but don’t believe we are to straighten others out from what comes from our testing – it is a personal thing and only when God, Himself wants you to address the doctrine of a pastor – it should be that pastor alone and not their followers – or else you would be going against your first statement above with the monitoring of Henry’s followers in your responses to them).

        to test the prophets and pastors. 2 Timothy 2:15 Do your (Your is a personal warning) best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you (personally) in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 1 John 4:1-6Beloved, do NOT Believe EVERY spirit (those CLAIMING to SPEAK BY THE SPIRIT), but TEST the SPIRITS, whether they are of God; because MANY FALSE PROPHETS have gone out into the World………..

        (Jesus was the only one to tear down the Pharisee’s – and it is because He and He alone knew their heart, but He didn’t do it to destroy them – He did it because there was a plan made before the foundation of world, events that had to happen to bring in the Gentiles, to die on the cross for the whole world.)
        Jesus states many times how people were blinded to the truth and it was not for them to comprehend (because of a greater plan).

        So, to hopefully wrap it up – Our’s is to spread the Good News – and – whatever is lovely and of good report, dwell on these things, to be united as Christians, loving one another despite the level we are on. I would think False Prophets are one’s who would lead us away from believing in Jesus as our Saviour. But, to be fair on a human point of view – if a follower vehemently defends a ministry, the questions needs to be personally asked, “Who is my Savior.”

        I have been apart of congregations that when the pastor leaves (for whatever reason) the church falls apart. The one’s who stayed lets you know who their following (even if the doctrine is not all that sound). But, it is not ours to judge the people who left. I believe God orchestrates (not us) things like this to bring people in a closer walk with Him, to test them, to show them Who to follow, as some have testified to this on this website of being in a ministry and God opening their eyes to no fruit.

        His ways are soooooo much higher than ours that I don’t believe anyone can have absolute truth while in this flesh or we would play God with all the power that goes with that. I think this is why Paul had a thorn in his side – to keep him humble with the knowledge God had passed to him or he could rule the world (he was kinda arrogant at times – don’t you think?)

        I have read “A more excellent way,” by Henry Wright and understand many comments about him – and while I don’t believe his method is for me personally, because it’s all about sins and getting me back under the law (to me), he doesn’t draw people away from believing in the Son of God. And, if it is a cult and he draws people unto himself – God will deal with him and his followers in due time. There is a plan

        Like I said with my brother who was messed up with drugs – he would have thrived under Henry Wrights ministry and it would have done him good to be under much contemplation of what is going on in his mind, his choices and get rid of them.

        I’ve always like what Gamaliel (the only sound pharisee teacher of Saul – Paul) said to the Sanhedrin council when they were wanting to kill Jesus and His ministry. Paraphrased: “Brothers! do not act hastily, but leave it alone. Remember the many others who came up with a different doctrine than ours in the past and how they destroyed themselves and the movement died. If this Jesus in not of God, it will follow like the others, but if it is of God – you will be fighting against God Himself!”

        Oh, God is so sovereign, so mighty. I think He can handle Henry Wright. It is our’s to just trust and obey what He has for us personally and then turn to love, feed and help a dying world.

        Whataya think?

        One more thing – I know what the rebuttal will be – that we can’t just sit around with our personal relationship with God, loving everyone with no call to accountability of dividing the Word and let cults rain through the land – but the wording of this website is drawing a sword, like Peter did cutting the ear off the solder when defending Jesus(you know the rest).

        When you make statements with a tone of drawing the sword, (in your opening paragraph calling Henry Wright a wolf in sheep’s clothing – very absolute), you will get the responses you have. Instead, ask the question, “Is Henry Wright a wolf in sheep’s clothing? Log in and let’s divide the Word of God together and see if there be any fruit.” And then respond to people with the Word of God.

        Remember, God Himself walked on the earth in the person of Jesus. People were staring at Truth face to face – but what He was telling them was so outrageously different than what the traditions of men had been handed down through the ages – and thought of Him as a heretic – thought he was twisting scripture to fit His ministry, because if you read the Scriptures Jesus’ quotes from the Old Testament – he takes them out of context, not quoting the whole thing – but letting them in on a deeper truth, a new covenant.

        Let love reign!

        Dear Lily, I truly appreciate your thoughts and concerns. You are right in so many ways and as all of us we still need grow in as well. You may take this blog for what it is. It is not against any sect of Christianity. This blog is here to provide my point of view and the views of others including your own. You speak as one who has not lost anything to Henry. Maybe your comments would have had a different tone if you had. A pastor that tells his flock to just have faith and stop taking your medications is a pastor who is playing with very lives of people. He is not a doctor and should not be leading his flock to believe that if you only had enough faith they wouldn’t need their medication. (Take a week long workshop with Henry and you might change your tune.) Any pastor that tells his flock to leave Christian family and friends that don’t believe exactly as he does, and follow him (not in his book) is not someone I wish to endorse. I have a long way to go to understand all that God reveals through his word but I have felt the unneeded loss that this man has inflicted and for those how wish to be warned I take a stand. I pray, now that he has had some medical issue, that he will change what he says to his followers. Thanks again for your opinions.

      • Lily Says:

        Dear wrightiswrong, Thanks for your humble reply. I can tell you have a good heart.

        Let me share my heart on a point in your reply:

        You said, “You speak as one who has not lost anything to Henry.”…..I haven’t lost to Henry, but have lost many things due to religion and lost my mother to cancer when I was 20 (25 years ago) because the church we attended counseled her to trust God in their healing prayers and not trust in the medical field, so she didn’t go to the doctor.

        Now, my other brother, who is a biblical scholar and impossibly to talk to unless you are lined up with him exactly, believes the way most on this site believe – that you are to expose and have nothing to do with false prophets (only everyone who doesn’t line up with him is a false prophet, including me, his sister who he will have nothing to do with and is very hateful and has failed to let me in on what I have done wrong in his eyes).

        My father was like this also, and may I say un-forgiveness and un-loving your enemy has eaten them up inside to where both are so filled with hate – they can’t see anything else. My brother wouldn’t even attend my mothers funeral because the false prophets were there. I know he is extreme and wasn’t like this 25 years ago, but hatred (which can disguise itself in conspiracy theory lovers) is like a drug as it get’s stronger and becomes a stronghold where you can’t trust anybody, looking over your shoulder at who’s out to get you.

        The way I dealt with my mothers death is, it was her choice for her life. She loved God with all her heart and was of a sound mind and had strong faith. It must have been her time to go. I have had nine (count them – 9) near death experiences and can testify, if it is not your time to go and God’s got more planned for you or has a larger plan in your death or keeping you alive, nothing can take it away. But, watching the following 25 years unfold with how I dealt with her death and the way my brother did and the way he sees things, my life has been amazingly blessed and fruitful (all glory goes to God) – his has been bitter and isolated beyond measure. Not everyone will go down that road, but it does open you up to hatred and unforgiveness.

        The scriptures Thomas replied to me with and the ones that I have seen on this site – may I comment on? but first:

        One thing I have learned (and am still learning of what I understand today can change tomorrow) in interpreting scripture is: It is nearly impossible to translate from one language to another without loss of the original meaning (Hence, lost in translation). So to have an understanding of (say) a word, find the original Hebrew/Greek word it was translated from – then find all the places in the bible that word was used so you can get a better feel or definition of what it means. If your a bible student (and assume you are), you will know that one Hebrew/Greek word can have over 50 different english translations.

        The NIV (and am sure it is in some other translations) use the word EXPOSE (not in the original ancient text). As in the scripture below was given by Thomas:

        Ephesians 5:11
        “Have NOTHING to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather EXPOSE them!” (I’m not going to go through all the scriptures he gave….too long)

        In a more close translation to the original Greek this reads:

        “And do not co-participate yourselves with the fruitless works of darkness, but much rather reprove.”

        reprove (the word from which exposed was translated from here) has always had a meaning of testing. Biblical testing can be severe but its aim is always parental in nature or to bring back into right standing with God.

        Thomas, I believe, has taken this out of context and has applied it to false prophets. Read the whole chapter (Thomas) of Ephesians 5 – But read it in a translation closer to the original and dig deep into it’s meaning instead of reading words on a page. Paul is talking about walking in love, but prostitution, profligacy(recklessly wasteful), excess, obscenity, frivolity(frivolous, not acting serious or sensible), ribaldry(course language like calling someone a fool or idiot) – and to never let these things be named among you, but thanksgiving instead.

        This is how the chapter starts out, but to get to where Thomas used the verse, let’s start with verse 6: “Never let yourselves be deceived with empty arguments; for through these sins (the ones mentioned above), the anger of God comes upon the sons of carelessness. For you were once darkness but now light in the Lord. (skip to verse 10) Search what is most pleasing to the Lord, and do not co-participate yourselves with the fruitless works of darkness (the sins), but much rather reprove (test) them.

        5:11 ends with “them”, but “them” is an added word (by translators) to the original manuscripts

        to continue with verse 11: “For it is a shame even to speak of those things(sins) which are done of them, in secret……….” (Much more for the whole world to see)

        I’ll stop there, you can read the rest for yourself. But, what this is saying to me is; To walk in love, then list sins (some of them I think we’re all guilty of at times, as it states; “you too were once darkness but now walk in light,”) but do not be co-participators with these sins (not the sinner, we all are sinners and fall short of the glory of God), but rather test them (the sin to see if it be of God – ie test what you do and how you think to see if it is of God. As I said, some of the sins listed, I catch myself doing at times like name calling or coarse language). Participating has a different meaning than “to have nothing to do with them(sinners – instead of the sin).” Jesus hung out with sinners, but didn’t not participate with their practices. How else can you win them to God, if their rejected because of their not knowing and your not around to give them an example. But, I think reproof in other scriptures has the meaning of correction towards the person(only), and to bring 2 or 3 witness, and then before the church (which signifies to deal with things in your own realm), then handing over to Satan for the purpose of restoration when they experience the consequences of their sin – and then bring them back in for restoration.

        Below is a scriptures to ponder and is seen in many other places – but do not want to overwhelm with TMI):

        1 Cor. 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. HE will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose (there’s that word again, but here it is not re-prove – it is manifest (meaning to render apparent, shine a light on) the motives of men’s hearts.

        Very interesting chapter in context – read it.

        I don’t know Henry Wright personally, but while I was in the ministry, there were several couples (whom I trust more than people on this site because I know them) that went to his seminars and came away blessed (even though I didn’t agree fully with his book).

        Being in ministry for 16 years, I can tell you from my experience and what I have seen, that it depends on the person’s (followers) heart and I’m not saying there aren’t bad ministries out there. I’ve seen people in our church be totally blown away blessed, while others walk away bitter on simple things that do not require dividing the Word. It was just how they received it because of their background and possible hurt they have experienced where, what they got upset about was totally twisted – to the point it dumfounded me and couldn’t for the life of me figure out how that received it the way they did. I have been in both camps – and as time goes by, God graciously convicts where I was wrong and where I was right – that is why I think the way I do because of walking on both sides and know we all can fall short. But, where I was right, I have learned (am learning) not to be an arrogant, name calling person to prove my rightness, but give it to Him to manifest in due time. (That last statement does not reflex what I have read on the site, i.e. name calling – but have seen on many debating Christian sites….OUCH! does not reflect the love of God.

        I do want people on this site to please forgive me if you feel I am in support of Henry, if you have been hurt by him. I’m not in support because I don’t know him personally and don’t know you personally, but want to suggest, as you walk away from his ministry – forgive him so God will forgive and restore you. It’s not worth it to be bitter and will bite you in the end.

        Sorry for such a long reply, but it is fun to be sharpened.

        Bring it on!………Thanks

      Thanks be to JESUS! My eyes WERE opened and I did wake up.
      I lived in Thomaston and attended this church for years. Myself and whole family attended the program countless times. I went to (Scientologist call it I had totally bought this man’s version of the truth.

      One day, after struggling so much with devils and sin, needing MORE AND MORE deeper insights and all those Old Testament blocks between me and the FATHER… I came to the realization that I had not heard the NAME of JESUS but a handful of times in several years and that I was sicker than I had ever been… Curious.

      So, the Holy Spirit had brought me to my senses… I rightfully panicked and Left the church/cult and under went mourning for the fool I had been and also had cult deprogramming. I thank JESUS that he had me in the palm of his hand and did not let me fall from HIS GRACE.

      *Warning to anyone with ears to hear…HW is a wolf, PVC IS a cult.*

      I too, was once in your shoes….I went there the same reason anyone else does…I was desperate to get healed and I too would have defended this man and his teachings to anyone. (And did, ironically on a forum calling this church a cult:)

      I only knew how HW’s teachings (at first) made me feel. Excited, clean, extra special, part of a group that knew the truth. Why didn’t everyone believe this? After all, people were healed, people were refreshed and embraced the FATHER’S LOVE and repented and deliverance from all those devils and party church atomosphere, even the electric slide…Wow…how about the electric slide? (Done each and every Friday after program…never any deviation ever)
      and what about HW himself? At that time especially, when he was well and full of himself, was such a enigmatic convincing personality. Wow, what could beat that I wonder?

      Perhaps the actual salvation message? Maybe you know the one I am referring to…the NEW COVENANT thru the atoning blood of JESUS CHRIST. It lacks the electric slide…but is still pretty exciting in my book!

      *Warning to anyone with ears to hear…HW is a wolf, PVC IS a cult.*

      What would you say if I told you that there is a recovery group for those that have left this cult, many people coming out of 7 years or more of BIH programming and are almost destroyed…can you say that about your average bible teaching church? NO, most people don’t need to recover for years from going to a respectable church.

      Or that HW preached from the pulpit just recently “we are not a cult”
      Do you hear that in your average bible preaching church? No, and why not? Because normal bible preaching churches do not NEED to defend themselves.

      Are you boasting of this man’s works?
      I do not care if this man climbs to the highest pinnacle of the earth and declares his mismash of psycological/scientology/OT Law/mormonlike/pseudo medical theology to all who will hear. Not do I care if you and every man walking on this planet embraces it as the gospel truth and everyone gets goose bumps and healed. This does not make HW right. As the man says, Wright IS wrong.
      Without JESUS and his finished work on the cross as his main focus… all that’ man’s preaching is nothing but DUNG.
      Even the word, repent, means nothing if JESUS is not involved.

      And addressing the self righteous statement…I truly must say that I am anything BUT self righteous…there is NO good in me. Not an ounce. The only good I possess is JESUS Christ in my heart. He is my righteousness. And this I know and thankfully…NO man will ever again take this away and replace with extra biblical lies.

      Get yourself truly grounded in the forgiveness, deliverance and grace of the LORD Jesus Christ and all this, everything I am saying to you Will become self evident. You, yourself, will wonder how you EVER fell for a counterfeit gospel. I often wonder how I did myself.

      Gal 1:6
      King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
      I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

      Again I will warn you, “Special Revelation” Wright is a wolf, PVC IS a cult.* May the LORD JESUS CHRIST give you discernment and wisdom.

        A sentence in the first paragraph of my last reply disappeared. It says “I went to (Scientologist call it I had totally bought this man’s version of the truth.”

        it is meant to say…

        I went to much ( Scientologist call it Auditing but PVC calls it) “ministry”, which is one on one deliverance meetings with various members of the church. Whereby you discuss everything bad that has happened in your life, they discuss roots, you repent for your participation, even if you were a victim, such as in a rape etc…and then they cast out the appropriate devils to such roots. I totally bought this man’s version of the truth.

        This will help clarify that paragraph. Sorry.

    I’m a saved Christian since 1996. I have been dating a girl that has recently introduced me to HW books.

    She has read several of them and attended his seminars. She is adamant that what she is learning is biblicaly based and swears that his teaching’s are her life passion now.

    I find it odd and a bit uncomfortable to except her beliefs that everything is spirit based.

    She even has one of his books that lists prayers to pray over my spirit. something she insists she does daily for me.

    I have read about half of his FEAR book. seems ok. The thing is that I’m comfortable testing everything to see if it’s in line with God’s word. But, yikes. if I had to tell her that what she is into is unbiblical, I would need a great deal of help with that.

      Outback, Has Satan dividing Christian against Christian? I will NOT presume that you are NOT a Christian. In fact I believe that all of us who are adamant about our views on this blog are followers of Christ. So I think it’s important that we talk like Christians. This is not the place to threaten each other (“be warned and be so careful”) as you say. This blog is here to give people the right to choose if they want to follow Henry’s Wright teaching or to go a different direction. I am here to inform people of what I believe may be unbiblical teachings of “Be in Health” and if they know what they are into and don’t care, or they choose to ignore the warning signs and not search out what I am saying than so be it. They may continue to follow Henry, that is their prerogative. Surely, there are other pastors who are not unbiblical who are just as capable of pastoring a flock as Henry without fleecing the flock of a half a million dollars.

    Actually, HW ministry raked in ONE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS last year. I found it on the internet by typing in his name and residence, and it came up. I am not surprised at all. People that are sick are so desperate to be healed. I myself forgot that according to the scriptures, my righteousness is as filthy rags. I cannot earn it, have it cast out of me, or study anyones teachings. It is all be Jesus grace and mercy, that I am so unworthy of! We cannot in our human nature even begin to fathom the love of Christ Jesus our Lord! It’s all about JESUS. It takes time to come out of a cult. I kept seeing and feeling warning signs, but I tried to ignore them. Then I began to let the Holy Spirit take control, and cried out to God to show me the TRUTH. Praise His Holy Name, HE did just that. The Bible says to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. God meant to fear Him, LOOK To Him. No one can show you this other than Almighty God! Please search your heart and mind. Ask Jesus to speak to you directly. He is the only way the truth and the life!

    Let me know what you think of them.

  45. Concerned Christian Says:

    Having heard and watched many of his teachings I have decided that this man does have some truth but also has much error in his teachings. For example he stated in one of his DVD’s that BeinHealth’s “Magna Carta” is based upon 2 Timothy 2:25 from the KJV only which states: “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth”. The words HW focuses on in this verse is “opposes themselves” to come up with a doctrine that if you hate yourself, or oppose yourself in any way then that is the root of your disease. The word “themselves” is not even in the original Greek. No other translation of the bible uses the word “themselves” in this verse. The real meaning of this verse is about the person in the church who is opposing the truth is hurting other peoples’ faith. He takes this mistranslated verse from the KJV and gives it new meaning to base his doctrine upon. He also takes this verse out of context with what the previous several verses were saying. This is just one of many problems with HW’s teachings and why all christians should be careful with this ministry and very well grounded in the Word of God before reading “A More Excellent Way” or attending his seminars or buying his DVD’s. IMHO my entire church has been deceived by many of his erroneous teachings. He may be sincere and may have other’s interests sincerely ahead of his own, however many of his teachings are sincerely wrong and will hurt people’s faith.
    In his Spirit World Realities teachings he often makes a statement that does not have a grounded biblical basis and says to trust him because he has done tons of research on the subject and does not back it up with the bible. One example is the subject of satan (demons) puting thoughts in your mind and communicating with you through theta brainwave activity. How does he know this is the way satan puts thoughts into your mind? How does he know satan can even put thoughts into your mind other than your 5 senses. The bible does not state that satan has this kind of power. I find it hard to believe that HW could find scientific evidence that satan can put thought into your mind via theta brainwave activity.
    Please be careful and truly be a good Berean when it comes to his teachings.

      All “Christian like” cults possess some truth. This is the way you are reeled in. Like a counterfeit dollar bill…you would not accept one that you KNEW was false…you are fooled thinking it is the real thing. It can happen to anyone. Look up on You tube…how good churches become cults. Here is the link

      Now, I personally do not think PVC was ever a “good” church if the definition is being one that preaches the New Covenant of Jesus Christ…but the you tube videos show how anyone CAN be fooled and any church can get WAY off. It also shows, in video 5 , how a church focused on the Old Testament is almost always a cult right off the bat. (PVC).

      • Concerned Christian Says:

        Anon, I really appreciate this youtube link. I am the Concerned Christian that wrote the above post. I was there at BIH in Thomaston, GA for a “For My Life” event the week HW had his heart attack. The father’s blessing ministry was really good that Monday nite but went down hill from there. The notebook/ studyguide they handed out did not follow the teachings from the teachers at all (all that was there were bible verses which many had no correlation to what was being tought). They apologized for this in advance saying that the studyguide was several years old. When I asked one of the leaders if I could get a copy of the notes that the teachers used to teach I was immediately turned down with no explanation (it was wierd). When I asked a second time a day later I was told to go buy DVD’s and printed material in their bookstore again with no explanation. This immediately made a red flag go up in my mind because I had paid much money to attend this seminar and they would not honor a simple request over something they made a mistake on. This was the pivotal point at which I started digging deeper into this minstry’s teachings (especially after HW had his heart attack a day after that). I did buy some of the material and listened to it and became even more disturbed at what this man was teaching thus some of the points I mentioned above. I guess what bothers me the most is knowing that my church leadership was drawn into this and were quoting some of these verses that were blatently taken out of context to support this doctrine of “sin in your life is the spiritual root to your disease and/ or your block to healing”. I agree that we should not practice sin but don’t twist scripture to justify a doctrine that the bible does not justify. When Jesus and His disciples healed people they did not tell them to stop sinning first before they got their healing. Jesus always healed them first then on some occasions said go and sin no more. HW’s 80/20 rule is not biblical either. HW’s 80% of disease is caused by sin. Go thru the bible and add up all the healings that took place in the New Testament. Very few illnesses or reasons that people needed healing were because of sin (at least it wasn’t implied). Let the bible / God be your teacher and not what another man thinks the Holy Spirit told them to tell you especially when they “themselves” profit financially from telling you that. I am praying for HW and his followers that the veil may be lifted from their eyes.

    This is what I have stated before, every cult starts out with a truth, that is what drawls you into it. I went to the library with one of his ministers, and I noticed that she was checking out books that were written by other cults. What went through my mind was, is Henry reading these to learn brainwashing techniques? He had said many times that his own father would have nothing to do with him. A huge red light went off in my mind as I saw these books being checked out, and then thought about his father. I also thought Henry does have a degree in psychology, he would know how to manipulate peoples minds. I also felt a presence of the power of suggestion. This man has one diabolical mind. He DOES spiritually rape people. Christians BEWARE , and stay away from these false teachings!

  47. We Shall See.... Says:

    Just want to say I’m going to attend a Be In Health conference later this week and found this discussion interesting. I lean toward the “pro-Henry” view, but do intend to be Berean as I listen. I guess it’s just that I see healing all over the scriptures and long to see it in reality. I WANT to believe Henry has discovered some principles that work. And as it has been pointed out several times, his book is very strong on sanctification, something that is glossed over even in our conservative churches! Anyway, A More Excellent Way makes sense to me and it seemed almost uncanny the way I found out about it, and then for there to be a conference in my own one-horse town! That has to be God, right? May God bless us all with love, patience, and wisdom. And healing.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I hope that you can be an objective Berean. I think too often people WANT to believe and thereby can’t reason intelligently. As my mother says, “If you believe hard enough that that post over there will make you well then it will.” When 60% or our ailment will heal themselves (for Christians and non Christian alike) without any outside intervention but through the grace of God then any health ministry should have 60% of their ailing healed. If you are not well versed in your bible I will guarantee that you will come out believing everything that Henry Wright’s group teaches. May the Lord be with you!

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      So, how’d it go being Berean, “We Shall See….”?

      If you were truly Berean, you’d never even go in the first place.

      And if you had ANY spiritual discernment whatsoever, then you’d be sounding the alarm along with those of us who do.

      Good bye, and sorry about your misadventure you’re embarking on. If you’re lucky, you’ll be disillusioned one day, and left with the ashes of what’s left of your life and soul.


  48. Steven Says:

    I have friends who have decided to go to Georgia for one of his conferences. He has MS; she has other issues. They have a son with paranoid schizophrenia. They are desperate. We have not known them for long. They attended a small group we were leading i thank you for your blog and believe from what I’ve read what I already feared may be true- that the ‘Be Well’ movement and Henry Wright are part of the whole “faith movement” ie that if you are sick, poor etc.,It is rooted in sin and can be changed if you repent enough and believe enough. Such teaching has destroyed many lives. I am, however, equally concerned with a similar doctrine of demons called dispensational cessantionalism whicn many opponents of the healing movement use as their hidden frame of reference. This is an equally unbiblical and is also a contrived theology that forces on scipture its own speculative context. Unlike you perhaps, I believe in and have witnessed personally God’s healing today. I believe that when we pray for the sick, we are obeying one of the imperatives of the “great commisson”. I believe there is biblical imperative to allow for and eagerly seek spiritual gifts, including the gift of healing. I believe, however, that the safe and biblical way to express these things is in the body and in as naturally, supernatual way as possible. Because the church as a body has not accepted the mandate to preach the good news and heal the sick as a natural outlfow of discipleship, we allow for spiritual predators to manipulate the minds of people with distorted doctrine and the exaltion of so-called “annointed” men and women. There is a mystery in healng. Just as not all are saved who we proclaim the gospel to, even though it is the Lord’s will that none should perish, – all are not healed who we pray for even though it is the Lord’s will for us to pray for their healing. I see no difference between devine healing or medical healing. Pray to be healed and take your medication at the same time. If you do become well, it will show up in the doctor’s office. We shouldn’t be putting our ultimate trust in medicine or in humans who claim to have healing gifts, we should be putting our trust in God.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      That’s right, Steven . . . on both assertions (ie. both extremes are equally dangerous and err’d).

  49. Steven Says:

    I recommend this brief article based on a PhD dissertation on cessionism for the shake of contextualizing my argument

    I came to the same conclusions, though less well articulated while doing a guided reading course in eschatology during my last year in seminary in 1981. I later became aware of well written biblical theologies such as that of George Eldon Ladd and systematic theologies such as that of Wayne Grudem. I agree with much of what is written in the article by Hampton Keathley you recommended but believe in reading the primary source before making final judgements. I do not believe miracles in today’s church are evidential or even necessarily an endorsement of the person they are mediated through. Many people have been saved through ministries that are doctrinally and ethically questionable (i.e. Swaggart, PTL, Benny Hill etc. If a person is healed at most it testifies to the fact that God still heals today and that healing prayer is effectual. I believe that every Christian can be sovereignly used in this ministry although it is possible that some may have extraordinary experience and/ or a Holy Spirit enhanced ability to equip others.

  50. 123angel Cindy Pruss Says:

    Maybe it is just as uncanny that you found this blog WARNING you about the evils involved with Henry Wright’s ministry. You are going to be shocked at all of his his methods of madness. Basically he will be telling you that if they cast all of your demons out, and you repent of everything you can think of, YOU can make your own healing happen Forget about what Jesus has already did on the cross for you, YOU can do , and make your healing happen. Isn’t that great YOU can tell God how YOU want it done, and plan it all out with Henry and his staff. I’m sure God loves being told what to do, and YOU have all of the control in it. But, don’t forget, we are to love the Lord God with all of our heart, mind, body, and soul! That means we are to TRUST and believe in HIM for our healing, not man. Henry does NOT even have a degree in BIBLE or Seminary, only psycology, and boy can he work and play with your mind. But, go ahead and do it your way instead of God’s. I guarantee you, there will be a HIGH price for you to pay! In many more ways than your pocketbook and mind!
    God how YOU want our all, but we just won’t give it to you, bcause we want it our way.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      Right on, 123angel.

      Wright is all about “me, me, me, me, me, me”.
      Periodically, tactically he’ll sprinkle or dip it in a little “Jesus”….

  51. Robert Says:

    Hello all…I feel that before I comment on Henry Wright and this ministry, it is necessary for you all to know by background and connection to this subject matter. I am 44 and in good health, thank the Lord. I am in the music business, which is a hard place to be as a Christian. I am logically and scientifically minded, as well as creative. I thank God for blessing the right and left sides of my brain. I have long desired to know the how and when of the more scientifically challenging aspects of creation, but at the same time, rested in my faith that I would know when the Lord tells me himself. It was, and is, enough to trust God by faith.

    I was exposed to Henry Wright and “Be In Health” a couple years ago. My wife and I were gifted one of the “For My Life” week long seminars, and went with absolutely no idea what the focus was. We were prepared to either absorb the Word or run for the hills! I must say however, that my basic theological preconceptions were very traditionally, Baptist. I have never seen a miracle, tongues had passed away as unnecessary with modern communications, God sent doctors to heal and fried chicken is the closest thing to Mana we will ever know. Well maybe not that last one, but in all seriousness…

    That week changed my life forever. We left with our minds swimming. There was so much information to process. I have been a Christian since I was 8, and I had never heard most of this before. I was exposed to passages of the Bible that are not taught in most church services. I was challenged to examine my dogma, and compare it to scripture. As has been quoted in above posts, I was specifically challenged to be Berean by the teachers and Henry himself.

    Never once was there a suggestion to abandon doctors or medication in an irresponsible manner. We were taught that that was a worthy an attainable goal. We were taught that Satan has dominion in this world and has profound influence on humanity…even Christians. The emphasis for the week was placed on identifying hidden or ignored sin and addressing it by name. We also learned about a Christian’s authority over Satan and his minions, and how to follow Jesus’ example in removing it bit by bit.

    To be honest, and I believe I am, I found Henry to be at least very confident, and at most cocky. I also had many issues with the diversity of deliveries from at least ten different teachers. Some were engaging, some destroyed the English language, some dryly read notes, and some flowed information effortlessly. I think it would be fair to say as well that as a human, Henry makes mistakes. When I was there, he related several positions that he previously held that have changed due to further and understanding. For better or worse, I found all to be sincere, with a heart for God. As I tried to justify my impressions through the filter of my life and beliefs, it occurred to me that that was really the problem. My beliefs, although I am saved, have been informed largely by men. Any leader that insists that man is being manipulated by an unseen enemy and must undergo a very uncomfortable examination of his heart in order to be everything God has for us is readily labeled dangerous.
    I believe our world, country and Christianity to be so compromised, that teachers who espouse long ignored and lost biblical principals will be placed on the fringes and ridiculed. I believe that the state of our own Christian church to be its own evidence that we, as the worldwide Church, are operating without the whole truth. Is that truth coming from Henry? That is the focus of my current study…Truth not Henry.

    I also believe this post to be it’s own evidence as to my desire not to follow any man on some wild and fanciful distraction. I found this blog as I was doing research as to the truth of Henry’s teachings concerning a pre-Adamite earth. I have found much dogma, and gnashing of teeth, but nothing to end my study yet. As I mentioned above, I have no issue taking God’s word on faith, but as He is not “the author of confusion”, and there is much confusion on this subject, I must challenge God in prayer to increase my understanding. This goes for creation as well as sin and disease. At this point, I am of the opinion that God has provided much more information than most are ready or willing to receive.

    I can’t address accusations such as thousands have died due to Henry’s teaching, or splitting up families. I don’t have the context, nor do I have that evidence. The kind of division and heated debate I see here leads me to believe however, that Satan is desperately trying to accomplish his purpose in it, whatever that may be. I can only leave you with this. As a result of this particular ministry, my faith has been increased, and I have spent much more time in my Bible. Pleasant Valley was a place of noticeable peace and lack of strife which led me and my wife to go again and take our children. Knowing what was going to happen allowed me to focus in more detail, and again, all the teaching was placed under the directive to test it with scripture.

    Remember this my brothers and sisters in Christ. Though the Bible says to be wary of false teachers in the end times, Satan is not interested in anyone truly testing his false teaching against scripture. Satan tends to be inclusive, not exclusive and he certainly would not influence teaching that enumerates specifically how to personally address and defeat his kingdom.

    I believe this by profession. Henry is a born again child of the most high God. All of you who have posted above are also born again children of the most high God and I am a born again child of our creator. We will reign for eternity with Christ, together. What implications does this have on this blog?

    Just some things to think about.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Thank you for your thoughtful blog. I appreciate your perspective. You sound like very caring and intelligent person so I am sending you some articles and notes. I hope you will take the time to read through them with an open mind to the truth being presented. Please pray for Godly discernment.

      We often claim to be Bereans, thinking that if we take time to read God’s work carefully we are being Bereans. But we really don’t know how to divide God’s word correctly. Do you understand the seven basic principles of Biblical Hermeneutics? If you, like most of us, didn’t know what I’m talking about, maybe you may want to start your studies with understanding the basics of being a good Berean. There are many good books on Biblical Hermeneutics but in case you don’t have time to look for one I have attached an article if you would like to read it.

      It is difficult to find reviews of Henry Wright. I have attached some interesting articles.
      The “What’s wrong with Henry Wright” are my incomplete very lengthy notes of Henry Wright’s book “A More Excellent Way.”
      The other reviews are much shorter and more readable.

      Please be careful of places that feel good. There are many people who belong to cults because they feel good being there.

      I can speak from personal experience that Henry’s teaching has alienated me from two of my daughters. We can’t discuss our difference in beliefs. I can’t speak about God and his work in my life nor their beliefs. If I do they won’t talk to me for months at a time. I am trusting God to deal with this issue and I am not bitter about just sad to know that if you don’t believe as they do then you are an outsider.

      I pray that this is helpful to you. May the Lord bless you.

    Dear wrightiswrong & gracelanding. We’ve read through everything here because we have some friends who say they are well now because of there visits to Plesant Rivers Church in Thomaston, Georgia, Pastor Henry W Wright. This is the ministry you are talking about? I’d like to know why you don’t post whatever it is you want to send out. It would be a lot better for us all to just read it, talk about it and if we have questions call their phone line and ask what they think, also internet safe. I’m always encouraging my sons to not leave their email on web sites, because we get so much junk email, but I believe you are sincerly trying to help people and call attention to errors, so will ask you the other person sending list of problems to send me a copy. Also did do a quick read of the Amazon com reviews for the Excellant Way book, and agree that it could just be because it is a transciption that no one was trying to twist or miss-quote the Bible, but just that people speak differently than they write. What else is wrong? Is this person abusive? What kind of leadership does their lead pastor sit under? Are people who live there free to disagree? How are people treated if they express mistrust or concern about errors in doctrine? What is done to help them, to reconcile, to make sure everyone has accountability? Have people been harmed by going there to there semanar?

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I have some real concerns about Henry. I don’t put all my notes on this blog because they are too long from most readers to sit through. But I’m more than happy to share what I have learned and researched.

      I have a friend who would be glad to rewrite Henry’s book but Henry’s doesn’t want it rewritten because it allow for confusion. He does twist scripture and does miss-quote the bible and doesn’t want it changed. Henry sits under no leadership but his own. He says he has direct revelation of God, just like Joseph Smith! He has no accountability that I know of.

      He has made a half of a million dollars this year and does not reveal his finances to anyone. My church publishes their financial disclosure every year – what his Henry hiding? I have disagreed with Henry’s teaching and if you do, you are filled with evil spirits and they stop talking to you. My girls who follow Henry won’t speak to me about any biblical issues. They will not reason with you. As you have read in the blog they can not defend any issues that I challenge them on. There is nowhere in the bible where we are taught that should or that we have the power to bind and loose evil spirits. Only God can do that. Nowhere in the bible does it say that all suffering is cause by our sins nor that we ourselves have the power to more GOD hand! Nowhere in the bible does it say that we are cursed, for we no longer live under the old law but under grace. Only God can curse and bless with power. Nowhere does it say that if a wife is more into the word than her husband than she is a Matriarchal witch. Nowhere does that bible teach that there are generational sins with 20 or more blocks to your healing. Jesus never taught this and Henry shouldn’t either!

      Yes people have been harmed by his ministry.

    • anon Says:

      YES!!! People have most certainly been harmed by going there. I would say that most people that stay there and attend the church long term are quite harmed.That is when you get deep into the cult teachings of this man.

  53. Peter j Foster Says:

    I didn’t know there was so much controversy over Pastor Wright’s ‘Be in Health’ Ministry.
    I have been exposed to a fair bit of his teaching and have benefited hugely through allowing the Word set me free. I am challenged by attitudes of unforgiveness, jealousy, anger, fears, hurts and unbelief. All of which can cause ‘dis-ease’ in our minds and subsequently our bodies.
    I am sure this is a true Biblical principal; but maybe his style would not suit everyone. He does take a bit of getting used to!
    Bless you all on your healing journey.

    • kim Says:

      When my mom first told me about it, (Be in Health) it sounded good, and made sense,- That is, until I went into the Conference (for 4 days) and really found out what they taught and the direction they were taking. (To let you know- I stayed in the same hotel as the people who came down from Georgia to lead the conference (it was DVD) I was in the elevator with them and saw a book they were carrying on How the brain works ( they didn’t know I was going to the conference). But I saw it, and after I saw these people were the leaders -that was my first red flag. Honestly, after sitting there for 4 days, it was a sort of brain washing they do (long days, eyes open, do not leave,etc…)- Not reason and free will. That is scary!

      Nothing can guide us like the Holy Spirit does through reading the Word of God. Not even Henry. When I became a Christian in 1997 (I was 22) God made it very clear he wanted me to get to know him through his word for that year. God spoke clearly to my heart ” Do not listen to anyone else”, this was so I could get some basic “roots” down; founded in the Word of God. Now, I do listen to certain trusted teachers ( good pastors, Jack Van Impe and Joyce Myers to name a few). I still continue to read and memorize as much as I can, but now I have God’s word in my heart so I can discern.

      We are all challenged at some point about unforgiveness, jealousy, anger, etc…. but these are things God will show us on how to beat, if we continue with him and our precious Savior Jesus(-Matt 7:7-8 (seek and you will find). Our trials through these thoughts and emotions are not in vain because God’s word says,

      Romans 5:3
      And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strengh, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

      Don’t forget the Devil knows the Bible too, and can twist it and distort it. Devil did it to Jesus after 40 days of fasting (when he was vulnerable) Matt 4:1-10

      Matthew 4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God , cast thyself down: for it is writtten, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not temp the Lord thy God.

      1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whener they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

      Trust me- I’m all for speaking Boldly in the Lord, but that is not at all what I see in H.W doctorine. I didn’t feel like the Be in Health Conference’s motive was to save people but actually to destroy them. That’s why I say,-“They are wolves in sheeps clothing.”

      Gods Word first!

    Everything has life.

  56. Kim Says:

    Wright is Wrong- I was just at a 4 day Be in Health conference in Calgary Alberta via DVD in a church. I was there with my mom because she was really interested. Let me begin by saying, ” They are wolves in sheeps clothing”. They treat the word of God like a smorgasbord, picking out verses and leaving others out to prove their distorted point. They prey on people who don’t know their bible and lead them astray; filled with fear. (Not to mention emptying their wallets )
    In this conference they were very controlling, saying if you need to get up and stretch or you are free , but a demon might be trying to get you to leave. They are reading books on the brain, which tells me they are not relying on the power of God , but seemed to be brainwashing. At the end of some of the speakers they wanted eyes up and on screen as they so called cast out demons if you closed your eyes they’d come ask you to open them. I was very uncomfortable as I didn’t trust these people. They say they are casting out spirits of fear that should set us free, but if you have a life with any emotion or ailment they declare-you have a demon. . Well, I have to say I don’t know what would give people more fear than to think because you are sick you have a demon. (Romans 8:28) They teach -Basically all sickness is from sin and all sin is from a demon (me-John 9:3). So when Jesus hung upon the cross and took upon the sins of the world he was covered with demons?- WRONG! (me 1 John 2:2). I am a healthy person and I take everythought captive to the obedience of Christ for me I learn and I become stronger (me- Jeremiah 2:19.) (refiners fire). But I know there were alot of people there who were/are sick. I do believe sometimes it could be a sin, but not always (Romans 8:28,1 John 9:3, 1 John 4:1) I couldn’t stay in the conference the many hours it was running and went outside for breaks, I was stared at and encouraged not to miss any (they didn’t have friendly faces either). I smiled and said I needed to get some air. (Ezekiel 3:9) I really felt like they were trying to brain wash. The whole thing was very confusing and didnt make any sense (H.W. doctrine) In the conference there were two ladies that I talked too, one who this was her 5th time and another 3rd time at Be In Health (obviously they couldn’t grasp it- not sound doctrine) After the 4 days were over I could see as I headed out the door the fear that seemed to rest in the partakers eyes. I prey for those people that they will search the truth through God’s word. This H.W. doctorine does not give you a sound mind like hearing the word of God and doing it (Me James 1:25, Rev 22:9 ). I believe as Christians we should be preach the Gospel and Heal the sick, raise the dead ,and cast out demons, discern, love one another as Christ loves us, forgive and forbear one another in love. (me Mark 16:15, Matt 10:8, Heb 5:14, 2 Tim 4:2, 2 Tim 2:15) I believe Henry is one who has been decieved by the devil and has dabbled in the occult whether or not he knows it (me Matt 24:24 Acts 20:28-32)

    They also teach christians should live long unscathed lives. Keith Green (who wrote alot of the hymns we use today) died in a plane crash (1982) at the height of his career. I love his music and it has blessed my heart as I’m sure many others. (me Phillipians 1:21)

    Henry Wright Doctrine offers FEAR and CONFUSION .

    God ‘s Word offers FREEDOM and PEACE.
    (me 2 Tim 1:7, 2Tim 2:15)

        Hi Wrightiswrong, here is some other stuff I wanted to mention

        I don’t understand why people would continue to be involved…… but this is the reason I’m thinking-
        1. People that go to this conference are people that want a now fix, rather than seeking the Lord and waiting on his timing (I can understand why), but the “Henry Wright doctrine” takes advantage of that. It starts by scaring them then makes them think this Be In Health is the only way out.- WRONG

        2. When you go into the conference, they say that there will be demons trying to get you to leave. (Manipulation)

        3. It is very guarded, during their deliverance sessions they have people at the door, at the sides and at the front scanning the crowd. Not allowed to close eyes, bow head. If you do they will tap you on the shoulder. (Control)

        4. They hand out an intrusive questionnaire to see what “problems” you have. (I didn’t fill one out because by that time I didn’t trust “these” people, they don’t need to know about me, God know me) (Control)

        5. They seem to give a lot of “air-time” to the devil, and his powers! So much that it seems like they are giving glory to the devil. Which invited the spirit of fear in. To me that is giving place to the devil. (Fear)

        6. In the workbook they have various lists. One list is of actions they call occultism/ demonic. In workbook they say things like debate, argumentativeness, division, schism, (and lots more) is all demonic occult behaviour; and you must renounce such behaviour. The work book is not exhaustive, because they mention more “stuff” in conference. Basically, independent thought and reasoning is not allowed but considered demonic behaviour.
        They list items that have occult/demonic derivations things like female angel statues to pharmaceutical drugs as being attained through demonic (witchcraft) practices. They say we must rid ourselves from ALL demonic practices. –BUT do not stop taking your doctor prescribed drugs. (they don’t want to be held accountable). The whole conference they really push, I mean REALLY push- “in order for us to receive God’s full blessing we must first rid ourselves of ALL demonic practices.” –Very Sneaky. (Manipulation and Fear)

        (I can scan and email you the lists from the workbook- just let me know).

        7. They use a lot of repetition, same thing over and over and over and over. We must rid ourselves of ALL demonic occult behaviour. 4 days of drilling it into your head (that’s how I felt) through different speakers over and over again. (Brainwashing)

        8. They teach genetic behaviour, our behaviours are not our own, it is passed down from generation to generation. We are already being affected by demons (Fear)

        9. They teach in conference what you say you will become. They base this on one verse – Job 3:25. They want you to talk unrealistic. Talk as though you have no problems otherwise you are practicing demonic behaviour. (Fear)

        10. They teach you can’t be healed in isolation.
        (they put God in a box, I know personally God can heal in isolation).
        (Control, Manipulation and Fear)

        11. They teach you can eat anything, food doesn’t matter, eating a balance diet doesn’t matter.
        (but even God told the Israelites how to make a complete protein) Our bodies have basic needs.

        The points that they try to make works with one verse, but that’s not how it works! God fine points his ways by using the whole Bible..

        Here are a few verses that came to my mind during this conference:

        Eph 4:27, 2 Corinthians 13:5, Matt 24:23-26, Galatians 1:7-8 Psalm 23:4 Psalm 37:4, Psalm 34:7, Romans 8:28, Philippians 4:8, Deuteronomy, 30:19 Luke 4:18, Hebrew 5:14, James 5:16, 1 John 1:9, John 3:17

    • ANON Says:

      They are indeed wolves. They are ravenous for your very soul. Burn your materials and never think on that place again. Try to deprogram your mind with actual teaching on the GRACE and FAVOR of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. I do have a question…how many times did you hear the name of JESUS mentioned at this conference?

  58. davesd Says:

    Here’s an interesting recent update from Henry Wright, posted on Youtube on 12/06/11.

    Note a significant change in Wright’s tone after staring death in the face with a massive heart attack and bypass surgery last June. He should be on his knees thanking God for the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry, the very means of grace God extended to him during that serious situation.

    In light of God’s mercies to him, we should pray that Wright will abandon his dogmatic, erroneous and dangerous teachings on sickness and disease that have relegated many people to early graves and enslaved many others to a wrong theology of God, man, and sin.

    • Eric Says:

      Yes, this is the video I refrenced in a recent reply post above.

      Notice how he refrences that there must still be a generational sin issue that he has not completely dealt with that resulted in the heart issues.

      I attended a For My Life week long seminar and found it very interesting. There were a couple of things that stood out as errors right away. But as I have continued to read the Word in the past year, I have seen more and more of Henry’s teachings to be wrong. The teaching on generational curses is the one I have the biggest problem with right now. This teaching has been disproven many times and the Bible makes it clear that generational sin is not an issue for the Christian believer.

      So it is a bit disheartening that after all he has gone through this year, Henry is still looking to blame a generational sin for his current health issues.

      Also interesting is how they hint at the end that Be In Health will change to include the “organic” side of health with an emphasis on nutrition. So, is Henry thinking his heart attack was a generational sin issue or an organic issue? I can’t tell.

      I do hope he continues to recover of course.

      wrightiswrong….any way you can e-mail me a copy of your extensive notes?

        Generational Blessings and Curses – HENRY WRIGHT
        Generational Sins and Genetically Inherited Disease

        [Is there such a thing as Generational Sins or are they sins common unto all man? Is there any among us who has, never stole, never wanted control, never had a prideful thought or never told a lie? If you are one than you have just lied! Maybe generational sins are what we are born with – our sin nature.]
        [Where does generational curse come from?]
        Henry – this scripture becomes the spiritual basis for all spiritual, biological, and genetically inherited diseases. [How did you get that out of this verse?] Exodus 20:5-6 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. [It does not say condemning or judging but visiting to see if the children or grandchildren have taken after their fathers or have turned to me! The unfaithful Israelites died in the desert but were allowed to raise their children, who entered the promised land. NO 3rd or 4th generational punishment. He delights in breaking generational curses (His punishment) as soon as people turn to Him in repentance. A prime example is Nineveh, Jonah 3:10. Nehemiah restored the Israelites back to God. . NO 3rd or 4th generational punishment. “Religion” tends to turn God’s truth upside down, and that’s precisely what happened with the Law. Men took
        what God intended as a means of driving them to seek His mercy and grace, and repackaged it as a goal to be obtained by works. Here God is expressing the brevity of his displeasure verse the longevity of his mercy.]
        paqad (paw-kad’)
        to visit (with friendly or hostile intent); by analogy, to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss, deposit, etc.
        [Remedy for generational sins is hearing the word and repenting?]
        Nehemiah 8:1-3, 1And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel. 2And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month. 3And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.
        Nehemian 7-8, 7Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place. 8So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.
        Nehemiah 9:2-3 2And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. 3And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God. [Did God forgive them or punish them to the 3rd and 4th generation?]
        Numbers 30:3-8 3If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by a bond, being in her father’s house in her youth; 4And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her; then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. 5But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father disallowed her. 6And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul; 7And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. 8But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her. [What does this have to do with Generational Curses]
        p. 82 Henry – Every time you step outside of the covenant, you open yourself to the law and the penalty of the law. [Jeremiah 31:31-33. Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. When Christ died, He completely satisfied the righteous demands of the Law (i.e., the penalty for the abrogation of the requirement of perfect moral holiness), such that those who believe in Him now fully meet God’s demand for perfect holiness and are no longer even capable of breaking the Law—since Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness for everyone who has faith in Him (Romans 10:4 4For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.) The true believer in Christ is incapable of breaking the Law because the Law no longer has jurisdiction over him (Rom. 7:1-25Romans 1Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. 4Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. 5For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. 6But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. 7What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. 8But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.
        9For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. 10And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. 11For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. 12Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. 13Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. 14For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. Rom. 8:1-11 1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.) The moral precepts are repeated so that believers can live free from the natural consequences of evil which can still ruin our lives and rob us of our time, talent, testimony and effectiveness for Christ (all of which can have indirect negative consequences for our eternal rewards), but there is no divinely imposed penalty for their violation, only natural consequences—which can be considerable.
        Henry -Each of you should build your own family tree. (Build or look back on?)
        Were your family members in past generations Christians? Were they righteous or unrighteous?
        What were their personalities like? Were they filled with fear, hate, envy, strife, bitterness, etc?
        What did they do for a living? Were they into alcohol, drugs and pornography? Did their lives contain any of the elements that we are learning are the roots for disease? Go back as many generations as you can. This will give you an idea os what is in your family.[Why do you have to look back at family history. Why not turn to God and do the best you can with your family to receive heaven awards. Then each child will have to decide for themselves whom they will follow when they grow up. Are looking for an excuse for our sins?]
        Henry – … many Christians have diseases that is genetically inherited. Do you think it is possible that inherited genetic disease can be prevented if the parents line up with God before conception? [YES and NO. Anything is possible with God but NO we can’t ever line up with God, with the law, we will never be good enough. We are daily bring renewed by the blood of Christ. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God . I don’t need to break a curse I need stay in fellowship with Jesus who covers all my sins and makes me righteous!]
        [Generational sin prevention?]
        Proverbs 22:15 15Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [This may teach a child right from wrong but what does this have to do with removing generational sins?]
        P. 83 Henry – …a man of God in that home, he would have taken every step to sanctify his wife and children. [I thought that only God could sanctify through the working of the Holy Spirit]
        Henry – There may be some things that you are dealing with in your life that you inherited. You say, “that’s not fair.” Well, it’s not fair, but that’s the price we pay for separation from God and opening ourselves to the devil and allowing him to be our father and our leader and our truth. John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father (the devil) ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. [For a believer this no longer is an issue. When we accepted Jesus as our savior we were no longer under the law. No matter how much I sin, I am forgiven! Yet God with undeserved kindness declares that we are righteous]
        Proverbs 26:2 2As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. [Words are powerful, but their power is natural and a result of how the hearer responds and is willing to believe them.]

        Spiritually rooted diseases
        p. 84 Henry – In spiritually rooted diseases there is always a spiritual defect. That spiritual defect is an area of lack of sanctification.
        Ezekiel 18:19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.[It meant we are all judged for our own actions. It’s not the release from generational curses]
        1Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.[Is this matriarchal witchcraft and what about Proverbs 31?] Proverbs 31 10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. 23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

        p. 84 healing spiritually rooted diseases
        1. Come into alignment with God – restoration
        2. Accept yourself
        3. Resolution with others
        [Where does it say this in the Bible? Is this extra revelation? Adding to the Bible?]

        p. 85
        2 Timothy 2:24-26 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. [This does not apply to Christians!]

        Henry – In order to get the disease removed, I must get the cause removed. That’s being sanctified. That’s what I’ve called my people to. A people who are sanctified without spot or blemish. [That’s not me nor anyone I know but I am righteous in the sight of the Lord. 23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. 27Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.]

        Henry – In order to that the disease removed, I must get the cause remove. That’s being sanctified. God said, That’s what I’ve called my people to. A people who are sanctified without spot or blemish. Ephesians 5:26-27 [Husbands love your wives to perfection as Christ loved the church] That HE (Jesus) might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That He (Jesus) might present it(the church) to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing (Jesus the perfect sacrifice); but that it should be holy and without blemish.

        P. 87 Henry – Pastors, you need more than Vines, Ungers, Strongs and a Bible. Instead of getting 14 translations, why don’t you buy a Merck Manual, a pathophysiology manual, and an anatomy and physiology book and do a little laymen’s study on disease? [Why? That’s what doctors should have not pastors.]

        Henry tells us what fibeomyalgia is using the Merck Manuel – written by who? Doctors

      • Cindy Pruss Says:

        I read on their Be In Health wall on facebook, as soon as Henry came out of surgery alive, he said God has given me a new teaching! Whew, talk about your pride! Instead he should have been saying I thank you my God, that I came out of this surgery alive! What about Donna on this video? I don’t believe that she did any thanking and praising to God for her husband that is still sitting by her side. I watched that and it made me sick. Those people are so wrapped up in themselves it’s amazing! Everything that has been posted on her lately is 100% the truth, you have did your research well, and I commend you!

    • Kim (dragonslayer) Says:

      God DOSENT make mistakes! God’s Word is infallible…….Nice that Henry was free to take his medicine while in hospital , but it his teaching he laid it on pretty thick- how we must rid ourselves of demonic practices (doctor prescribed drugs) He is a selfish man and if any of my family died following him I’d be pretty upset, now that he’s changing his doctorine and making light of it.
      Just another false religion right up there with mormons and Jehovah witnesses.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        No, you’re wrong. It’s not just another false religion right up there with LDS and JW….

        IT’S FAR WORSE.

        It’s witchcraft packaged in Christendom;
        it’s spiritual adultery wrapped in “Jesus”;
        it’s sorcery posing as deliverance love.

        I agree with Davesd. Honestly,your attacks are closing doors rather than opening them to reason. Your words are hostile and not edifying. People ARE NOT our enemies.

    Hi there. Could someone update on the health of Henry wright?. And what did he say the spiritual roots of heart problems were?. I pray he comes out of error in truth and from darkness to light in Jesus name. Also please email me as much info on Henry as you could as I have a brother caught in this thing.. Blessings….

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Sorry to hear about your brother! Have you read all the comments on this blog? If you have and still what more information please let me know.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      Rev. Wrong is only “79% righteous, and that being only a lighter shade of grey than he was 25 years ago when he began this thing”.

      THAT is why he’s not dead, but still suffering from Congestive heart failure, etc.. He only got a C+ in holiness, according to his own words and DEAD WORKS.

      you’re a Wright disciple, aren’t you?

      i sense that you’re our enemy, our foe… not a friend but unto Doctor Wrong.

      NICE TRY!

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        That is OK! We have nothing to hide and I’m more than willing to have an intelligent logical spirit filled dialog that is uplifting with anyone. I passed on some of the articles that I usually start with. I have a lot more materials that stand for the truth of the bible and God’s word. My GOD is greater than the enemy. The truth will be revealed in GOD time and we are just his instrument.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        yes, i know…. but THEY do have plenty to hide.

        just calling wolves out into the light ….


        I GOT A ROD FOR YOU …….

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        besides, you CAN’T have an “intelligent, logical SPIRIT-FILLED” d i a l o g u e with them…. because they aren’t.

        1 Corinthians 2:14,15

        14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

        15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

        Thomas Anderson,

        hey Tom – lighten up and stop attacking people who post here. Regardless of your opinion of them personally, it would be much better to engage based on facts and stay away from the ad hominem attacks. It only makes for a lot of heat, but little light. Thanks. Dave

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Please define “ad hominem attacks”.

  62. davesd Says:

    I’d be interested if anyone has documented information on the “ministry history” of Henry Wright, i.e., when he first became a pastor, what church(es), where, and circumstances under which he left prior “ministries” or churches

    Public records investigation turned up a “Grace Christian Ministries Inc.” formed in Florida in 1986 and dissolved in 1996. Henry and Donna were officers of this corporation at some point in time. They now have Be In Health, Inc.

    Also found that Henry has a criminal history in Duval County, Florida. Among his “accomplishments” are a felony grand theft conviction in 1990 (six months probation), and two worthless check charges in 1993 (pled guilty on one, no contest on the other – received probation on both). He also had a 1988 Florida state tax lien.

    Henry filed for divorce from his first wife, Rachel Delk-Wright, in July 1993, in Clay County, Florida. Rachel died in July 2010 in Duval County, Florida.

    His current wife, Donna, had a previous marriage to a David Bowers.

    • Cindy Pruss Says:

      OK, so he had that ministry in Florida going when he was arrested for a felony and check bouncing. He has a new ministry in Florida now , run by him and Donna, and one of his original ministers , Nellie Lower. Anita Hill, another minister from BIH, she might have moved down there too. I believe I read that this church is in Cape Coral Springs FL. So this mighty man of satan is brewing up some new evil again in Florida. When is this evil going to stop? It just keeps spreading like a cancer. Everyone that knows the goods on Henry and his flock of wolves should be praying earnestly for this spiritual rapist to be exposed and caught! I know I will certainly be praying!

    • Cindy Pruss Says:

      Sorry David, I went back and looked the info up again. The ministry that Henry started again in Florida is called Grace Christian Ministries. It is located in Green Cove Springs Florida. Nellie Lower is the treasurer. It also showed Anita L Hill as living there now. I got the info from Intelius. If you want to spend the money, you can find a lot more info on there on all of the above people mentioned.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Good work, Cindy P.

      • davesd Says:

        Cindy, I see a BIH Facebook post dated 12/09/11 that Rick Jones was “released” from his duties at BIH.

        Do you have any idea what his position was with the organization? I didn’t see his name come up in any of my background work. I wonder if “released” is code for “fired?”

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Rick Jones was “released” from his duties at BIH.

        What was his position was with the organization?

        “released” is code for “fired?”


        Poor guy! Rev. Wrong’s ascension from 79% to 85% after surviving his HEART DISEASE probably intimidated Mr. Jones….

      • Cindy Pruss Says:

        I saw on the BIH wall where Rick Jones was let go from his BIH job. You can log on to Mary Pat , his wife’s fb wall, where she comments in the older posts, that she was also let go, because BIH are making changes they (her and her husband Rick) are not a part of. It was interesting to read the comments made by their friends. I am getting excited that the dirt down there is beginning to stir . God is always in control, no matter how strange the situation seems. I did not know Rick or Mary Pat, all I can say is thank you my God that they were let go. Hopefully, they will go in the right direction in all things in their lives.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        YEAH, SURE! “Going in a different direction”

        Just like DIVORCE is a “permanent separation” or “marital dissolution” these days….

        *gag! *barf!

  63. Robert W. Watts Says:

    I am a pastor, a missionary of 35 years. Outside of the American name-it-and-claim-it influence, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are enough. Here in the USA, they sell Jesus in many packages but each one has the same flavor. You need me to tell you what the Bible, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God want you to know. Firstly, for 1,500 or so years, give or take an hour or so, people did not have the word of God, or writings. They had pastors and teachers and though many tended to go for the ornate, most lived simple lives where they dealt with sin. Then, the Word of God was given to the people. The leaders of the day knew that they were doomed. When people can read the actual words of God, then it is true that the need no teacher. As a matter of fact, those that taught about Jesus and the Holy Spirit said as much. Let your conscience be your guide and the Holy Spirit will take you where God wants you to go.

    I attended a seminar of Henry W. Wright’s teachings and was amazed that Henry W. Wright was the center of the teaching / conference. Here I thought I had come to know about God. I was taught, through a team of teachers, that Satan really ran things, not God, because we gave everything to Satan and if we did not do the 8 steps, say the prayers, over and over and over again, we would not ever be free from the boss, the Devil, empowered by our own lack of…. understanding.

    Are there good things in Wright’s wrongs? Sure, 99 percent of rat poison is great stuff, or, even a rat would not eat it. It is, unfortunately that 1 percent that kills, and that is that there is something besides letting Jesus talk to us through the Holy Spirit.

    Look, in the tribes and nations I talk to, we are still working out getting them the scriptures in their own language. Millions and millions have been spent getting Henry W. Wright into different languages as well as the billions and trillions spent in translating books, not the Bible and excuse me if I am naive but I thought that the Bible was the most important. It is not, evidenced by printing orders and publications by God’s (slight shudder here) people. It is sad that the Bible is just not good enough and sadly that Jesus is lacking in power to heal, once and for all, and that we should return for years and years and years to get the good stuff that Jesus never mentioned.

    Sorry, I am headed to Nigeria, Northern Nigeria where they kill people who say they are Christian, to take the the Bible. To tell them that Jesus is the answer and that the Holy Spirit will guide them when they ask for empowerement, not so they will be happy, healthy, wealthy and wise, but that they might be empowered to tell others about (sigh…) Jesus and the Holy Spirit and the father. Not (__________) fill in the blank. Anyone that sells Jesus Christ through their teachings, life and actions will fit.

    God help the lost, lonely and poor. They might become like those that Jesus said he never knew.

    By the way, if you want to help, please send Bibles and teachers and missionaries that want to give. 35 years, planting over 150 churches and I never asked them, those I ministered to, for a dime. Someone, please show me Jesus or Paul passing the plate.

  64. Savedbygrace Says:

    Thanks for this blog,
    I too am a survivor of this BeinHealth cult, having gone to Georgia and read many of his books. I too was convinced at one time that these “divine principles” would solve all of my problems. I regretfully convinced other family and friends to take the trip to Georgia for a week of what I now consider brainwashing. When I say survivor I do not do it lightly as this has been a very real deliverance from the bondage of lies and occultic powers. For, when I was there I experienced real power and energy and tongues during a time of “receiving the holy spirit”. These are the workings of Satan with all power, false signs and wonders. This ministry was a floodgate into the false world of shamanistic healing: cleansing stream, Bethel in Redding Ca (where I had my leg grow out, watched objects levitate, seen oil and gold dust manifest and feathers fall out of the sky etc..stuff my psychology degree couldn’t explain away). I had many prophecies over me and my husband which ended us up at the headquarters for the International Association of Healing Rooms (who use the be in health material/teachings). Praise God that while studying their SOZO inner healing material he miraculously opened my eyes to this being from the occult.

    Satan is a powerful deceiver that comes to us as an angel of light. He will use anything to get us away from the truth of God’s Word. He is a master at misquoting scripture (as he did when he tempted Christ). He will even orchestrate convincing “supernatural” events to that will lead your down a path to lies. He did this with bringing Henry Wrights book into my life. But God’s mercy has delivered me from the distorted teachings and occultic deceptions!

    This ministry is it he same tradition as other metaphysical mind science cults which all have their origin in the occult. The basic premise is no different then shamanism or the law of attraction. Whether Henry is a knowing wolf or self deceived is not the issue. This ministry is based on lies. Sin is our problem and Jesus is the solution, period! No where in scripture are We told to cast out demons or break curses to get rid of sin. Truly, the Bible is clear that not all sickness is from Satan. As Jesus declared to the Jews of His day, that the blind man was not blind from generational sin, but in order to glorify God….imagine that! also Ezekiel 18 refutes generational curses. We are under the general curse of death and dying. Which Christ will completely deliver us from at the resurrection.
    Now, we are to repent and put our complete trust in Christ for salvation. Resist the devil and he will flee from you is a daily choice to walk in obedience, not a mind control/brain washing new age “I am” walk-out.

    As one person on this blog pointed out, I feel like what happened to me at Be in Health was spiritual rape. The sad result of their brainwashing is pride that you have the answers and thinking that others our lost. This is typical of Satan, as his main sin is rooted in pride. This was reinforced when I prayed for others and they manifested as I prayed for there “deliverance”. I believe this was all part of Satan’s deception to pull me further from a humble walk in submissions to God’s Word.

    It took about a year and a half after getting out, hundred of hours of really studying God’s word, listening to solid Bible teachers, reading testimonies of survivors, etc. before I could think correctly again. I cannot begin to explain the raging battle for my soul that has taken place. Satan tried to tell me I had left God and the true Holy Spirit (this was a hard one because i had bought the experience lie). He tried to have me reject everything. He tried, but he has failed. I did not experience freedom from all of this overnight. I pleaded in tears and threw myself at His mercy. I repented of listening to false teachers and asked for His truth to reign in my life. He has brought me out of the lies.
    I now look back on This experience with a mixture of regret and joy. for I feel as though he has given me new eyes to discern evil. My spiritual pride and intellectualism has been crushed, and my empathy for others caught in lies has magnified. I have studied most of the suedo Christian cults and world religions and can see Satan’s lies repackaged again and again. I only take the time to write this in hopes that someone might be snatched from the fire, as Jude tells us to do.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I totally agree with you Robin. Here is a little brief On “Binding Satan” By Ray C. Stedman
      After pastoring for forty years I can state unequivocally that the most common cause of spiritual weakness in a Christian (or a church) is a failure to recognize the flesh in its disguise of religious zeal. Like Peter flashing a sword in Gethsemane the fleshly Christian thinks he is doing God’s will and fighting God’s battles for him.
      Perhaps one of the commonest expressions of this misguided zeal is the practice of “binding Satan” before Christian ministry is attempted. The Word of God gives no justification for this practice. None of the apostles utilized this approach and no Scripture commands Christians to practice it. It is an exta-biblical performance, arising from the desire of the flesh to look committed and powerful in the service of God. Christians are told to “resist the devil” but never to bind him. Resisting the devil is done by putting on the whole armor of God, as Paul describes it in Ephesians 6. The “binding and loosing” mentioned in Matthew 18:18 refers to the agreement in prayer of believers in line with the promises of God revealed in his Word.
      Another form of this same error is to ascribe the manifestations of the flesh to the work of demons, which then are ostensibly “cast out” of an individual through a “deliverance ministry.” But Galatians 5:19-21 clearly tell us that lust, hatred, discord, jealousy, rage, envy, sexual orgies, and the like are not the work of demons but of the flesh. It is impossible to “cast out” the flesh during this lifetime—rather it is to be subdued by recognizing its evil character, refusing to yield mind or body to its impulses, and turning immediately to Jesus for the supply of his strength and purity, as Romans 6:13 so clearly outlines.
      It is plainly the work of pastors and teachers to help Christians identify the flesh in themselves, by means of the Word of God, and to follow the pattern the Word describes to keep the flesh in subjection to the spirit and the individual free to live as the Lord has already made provision to do.
      “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians) God bless you. Thank you for your comments. It is important that those how can see the truth to step up and speak out. Thanks again.

      i PRAISE our GOD for your REAL deliverance!


    • Robert W. Watts Says:

      Yes, yes, going to the mountains, to the poor, to those that cannot be overwhelmed by words look at Wright and his ilk and laugh. They know demons and know the occult, they know this is Satanic. Endless hours of dancing and singing and they call it Holy Spirit. Look at the life of Christ, it is easy to see the comparisons.

      Endless repetitions of mantras, though Christian sounding, only open you to possession, evidenced by selfishness and the need for one more conference, one more teacher. Then seeking miracles and constant reminders that God is there to bless us,, smack of any occult gathering around the world. The leaders end up with fine houses and cars in the face of starvation and war world wide. In the Bible, it was the demonic that acted like animals and writhed on the ground. Today they convince you it is the Holy Spirit.

      The entire name-it-and-claim-it thing is so far from Jesus walking the streets, avidly avoiding the “Greatest Show on Earth,” and preaching against it.

      The parallels and activities are so obvious when you study the Indian cults or the Shamans. The antithesis of Christ. The mindless repetition of my Muslim friends, the resuscitation of needful prayers, over and over and over and….

      When there is a war, self indulgence is a sin. People are arrested for using too much for themselves. There is a war in Nigeria and around the world. My government tells me not to go. When I was young, I was a US Marine. They wanted me to go to hell, for them. Where are God’s people? Attending conferences where they spend billions on conference centers where they need ………..


      Matthew 25:31-46 and you don’t have to sing, dance and spend hours in intercession. Just do it. Utah Phillips, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn as well as many others, look at Christianity and laugh. It is not Christ they are laughing at, it is our pathetic attempt to convince the world that Wright is right. no, no, no….

      Listen to the mockers, they read the Bible and take it at face value. If you are not willing to deny yourself, what does that make you? Who is your boss?

      Awesome testimony. Thank you for posting!

  65. Robert W. Watts Says:

    Please, all of you who think that you are living the life of Christ, go to a field, spend three days without food and water. Read the New Testament. It makes more sense that way.

    If you did deny yourself your next conference and sent the money to the starving, you might qualify as a servant of Christ.

    I believe that those that passed by the man laying on the road to Jericho were on the way to a healing seminar. Don’t want to smell in the midst of plastic soldiers.

    Everyone knows that working for God means health, wealth and happiness. Why, just ask Jesus, hanging on the cross, or Peter being tortured or ………

    Please, I need Bibles, food, love, acceptance and forgiveness. Not for me for —————–> them.

  67. Jason Says:

    As an “outsider” who does not belong to any formalized or established religion, I read what this man had to say about A.D.D, and in that one section alone he demonstrates a remarkable amount of ignorance about what the condition is actually all about.

    First he claims that A.D.D. is caused by a “deaf and dumb” spirit. Yet neither A.D.D nor A.D.H.D (two different conditions) have anything to do with being deaf and/or dumb.

    Then he starts rambling on about how men are deemed (in Christian belief) to be the head of the household, and further infers that the devil will start entering the family dynamics when this is not the case. He goes further to purport that families that are matriarchal will produce children with conditions such as A.D.D. He then proceeds to veer along another obscure chain of thought by talking about a child in an experiment with “focus” training., and about how A.D.D. is brought about by self-rejection (other way round, actually).

    This man presents himself to the public as an authoritative source of health information – undermining both pastors and doctors in his wake, yet his writing seems to go all over the show without any clear train of thought, and he throws around bible verses which actually have little or nothing to do with the topic at hand.

    As a physically fit and extremely healthy man with A.D.D, I would advise that you study health and nutrition a little more deeply – notwithstanding whatever your spiritual/religious sentiments about health and disease may be.

    If he is such an expert on health, then why is he so FAT? I for one will not take health advice from people who are obese.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Henry will frequently find 1 single verse to base a whole misconstrued theology on. Take the deaf and dumb spirit. How many time is this story (phrase) found in the bible? Once! Jesus Heals a Boy Possessed by an Impure Spirit. A man brings his son to be healed of what sounds like seizures or epilepsy by the disciples. The boy would fall to the ground, foam at the mouth, gnash his teeth and grow rigid. In short the disciples couldn’t heal the boy but Jesus does. Jesus rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” I can just feel the exasperation in Jesus words. What if Jesus had said. I’m so tired of dealing with you stupid spirits! Then would all people of below average intelligence be filled with a “stupid spirit”? Now how Henry goes from epilepsy to ADD or ADHD is beyond me. Henry’s follows are taught to focus on word studies – using Henry’s dictionary and his other works. They are not taught to us context clues of verses, nor context clues of the chapter nor the context of the book they are reading. When you try to reason with his followers they are deaf and dumb to what you are saying. There is no logical thought! Who has a deaf and mute spirit?

      It seems to me that some of his follower need to wise up to what Henry is preaching. Thanks for your blog!

      • Robert W. Watts Says:

        As with any cult, there is always one more twist or turn. You will be invited to follow them through prayers and remember if it doesn’t work, it is obvious that first, you are the problem and second, these things take time.

        Leaving the Biblical teachings about the new birth, you must be born again and again and again, delivered again and again and again.

        I am currently in a ministry position where one partner is a funky chicken kind of tongues speaking and believing person and a rather sane Christian that is rational. The funky chicken cannot just talk. They must make a simple sentence into a “Praise the Lord, Hallaluja amen,” repeated frequently between a good and morning.

        Clearly there are problems but when presented to a ministry crew from Henry W. Wright, one partner was informed that if they did not do the funky chicken kind of tongues speaking, they would never hear from God. How’s that? Say what? If you don’t his like a snake, bark like a dog and claim to be a little God, God can’t use you and you can never understand someone who does.

        First, you have to read the book. If you have questions,, it is because you are not in tune with the spirit of God. Huh? Then on the one hand he says doctors are nuts and don’t know but if you read the doctor’s books, you will see that Wright is right and not wrong? Huh? Then, there are many “Miracles that are not at all verifiable and if you try to verify them, call, write or visit the ‘doctors’ of the Miracles, you are in doubt.” God can’t work when you are in doubt.

        It is like an onion. First this book and that seminar, then another and another till Henry has paid the bills on his multi-milliondollar lifestyle. My brothers and sisters around the world are starving and the poor man can’t pay for his platial house and complex. Sorry?

        Deep cries out unto deep? The more you spend,, the further you get and if you attend, you can become a dispenser of this secretive and informative but necessary for life drought of heaven. Huh?

        One of the partners is clearly out of the will of God. There is no unity and there is no agreement in the family but the funky chicken wins the day. Why, if we all did the funky chicken, flopped around on the floor and made noises like an animal, how much better a world this would be. Say what?

        Please, there are people dying and even the musicians and demon possessed know enough to have “Band Aid” and parties to send food. My goodness, I am faced with trying to feed the poor and they are doing their best to convince me that denying myself, living a life of austerity so i can send more to the poor is just… wrong, Wright?

        If you do not want to follow Jesus, please do not have someone who is unwilling to lay down their life for their brother, build an edifice and call the people unto him. Just tell the poor they are sinners and demon possessed. Why everyone knows that real Christians live a life of luxury,, attend meetings about how to cast demons out of each other, after a good meal and another Wright book, Right? Wrong.

        America is and will be judged. Please, please, please know that every religion has one basic principle that comes from the heart and soul. God put it in our very fiber and being. Help those less fortunate and the poor. Feed the widows and orphans and help those fleeing war and persecution.

        Wright? Wrong dude. The funky chicken doesn’t make a better cop, soldier or fireman. Try that stuff in the real world and they will have you committed.

        And yeah, by the way, the people we follow in the Bible died, that’s right, died for their beliefs. Please, someone pinch them.

  68. Dave Says:

    Here’s the latest from Henry and Donna.

    Almost 15 minutes of groveling for money. Apparently they have not learned anything from Henry’s personal health crisis except that their support has evaporated. As people have observed that his erroneous teachings clearly didn’t work on him, they have decided to move on. Let’s hope the days of BIH are numbered and that people will truly look to the Savior and his all-sufficient grace rather than the twisted man-centered “gospel” promoted by BIH.

      I really wish that I could get back the thousands of dollars that I gave to them the six months that I wasted down there. I am praying diligently to God and asking Him to shut this so called ministry down. It has cost me so much more than money. My grown children are still so angry with me for being gone so long, telling me that I left them and neglected them. I was always being told that I would come back a better mother to them by staying down there, and I believed them.

        Well let’s see now, maybe we should get the lawyer that got Henry’s daughter in law off scott free for manslaughter NOT The trial would have to be held out of T-town, because Henry’s now son in law was a patrolman there. People get convicted for a physical rape, why not a spiritual rape ? Let Henry explain his made up words and garbage in a court room. Hopefully they would lock him up for the rest of his life, and his wife and ministers along with him. This law suite isn’t really far fetched. Look what people take others to court for everyday, and they don’t suffer in any way shape or form like we have. I will be praying about this very very seriously.

      I was just made aware of this posting and was very surprised by its existence.

      This is a fabrication by a false witness. As it is publicly slanderous and injurious, I wish to reply. I am the actual Matt Smith this is impersonating, and can verify that this posting was created by someone with ill intent at heart.

      I wish to repeat, this comment was not written by me, the actual Matt Smith, but by someone impersonating me, and does not reflect my opinion or the truth of recent situations. Many facts have been altered and changed.

      Administrator, I ask you to please remove this comment because of the nature of the identity perjury and error. Thank you.

        Are there more than one Matt Smith’s? It is a very common name?

      • Scooter B Says:

        I’m pretty sure there are more than one Matt Smith in the world.

        While I would understand your offense at someone claiming to be you and posting things online; you cannot assume the one that posted is not also named Matt Smith or perhaps prefers to use a Pseudoname online due to concerns about online identity theft.

        It would however be nice if the “other Matt Smith” responded to verify in some way that he in no way was pretending to be someone he is not.

        ’nuff said.

        I’m certain that this second Matt Smith was one in Henry’s camp that didn’t want the original true Matt Smith to speak out and let the people know the “Real Truth”

  72. Scooter B Says:

    Just ran across another article clearly identifying the teaching of generational curses as contradictory to what the Bible teaches.

    This article was in response to a book written by Marilyn Hickey so Dr Wright’s disciples can easily read this article without being able to claim it is an attack on Dr Wright. This generational curse teaching is a perversion of the Bible and God’s truth.

  73. Scooter B Says:

    For those who are challenging the confrontation of false teachings as being unChristlike or unloving you may want to watch this video Jesus spoke very harshly to the pharisees and called Herod a fox (not a compliment) to his face. Foxes are known for sneaky underhanded behaviors and especially stealing food from other animals. Jesus chased the money changers out of the temple with a whip and he did it all in love. Jesus meek and mild as the picture of love is 90% fiction. He chose to be meek and mild when it was appropriate and socially offensive when He needed to be. Avoiding confrontation is not love nor is it virtuous nor is it Christlike. For the most part what is being attacked is not the person of Henry Wright but rather his teachings that teach another gospel than Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Paul had no reservation saying let that or any man be accursed for teaching a false gospel. I make no claim regarding knowledge of Henry Wright’s intent and it is irrelevant to the discussion. It is Henry Wright’s teaching that are in direct conflict with the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. To add anything else to the equation in regards to redemption and spiritual freedom is according to scripture another gospel than the one they received from Christ.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:


      You’re ridiculous.

      Ephesians 5:11
      “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather EXPOSE them!”

      John 7:24
      “Don’t judge by mere appearances but judge a righteous judgment.”

      We are ABSOLUTELY to confront and expel false teachers, false doctrines, etc. !!!

      • Scooter B Says:

        Thomas my friend you obviously didn’t watch the video. My post is in complete agreement with what you said and goes much further. I did rightly state man knows anothers heart with absolute assurance but we can definitely see the signs and call a spade a spade based on observed behavior or false teachings. We can also easily wrongly accuse someone regarding their intentions. My point was leave judging the persons heart to God but hold no punches regarding false doctrines in regards to that false doctrine. We don’t need to attack the individual however to do so. Romans 6:12 clearly teaches For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. According to scripture we are not at war with Henry Wright but we are absolutely at war with the false teachings he perpetuates. Henry Wright may wrongly believe he is rightly dividing the word of God and he may be a Wolf and a crook in sheep’s clothing. If you watch the video I posted for those interested and to which you have replied without watching; Paul Couglin repeatedly talks about Jesus instructions for us to be “Shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. When is the last time you heard a sermon regarding how to be shrewd as a serpent? I am whole heartedly advocating being street smart, shrewd and suspicious of the motives of others. I am not advocating we appoint ourselves God and claim to fully know the heart of another when only God can. We deceive ourselves if we even claim to fully know our own heart “for the heart is desperately wicked and deceitful above all else” according to the prophet Jeremiah. If we cannot truly know our own heart then how can we claim to know another mans heart? My post was however foremost advocating the need for not running away from conflict in the name of “peacekeeping”. To avoid conflict when it is encountered or to avoid initiating conflict in the name of protecting others is cowardice and sin. Watch the video when you have time. It is a call to arms for Christian men not by any means a call to pacifism. Not quite sure where the misunderstanding occurred other than not watching the video first before responding. We are on the same side on this one as far as I can tell.

      • Scooter B Says:

        Post above should have said “no man knows another mans heart” in the third sentence…..not sure where it disappeared to but it doesn’t make sense without it it in there.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        I know Rev. Wrong is evil. That’s all i need to know.

        I don’t care about his “intentions” . . . I care about TRUTH, and the LOVE of TRUTH . . . for that is TRULY LOVE.

      • Scooter B Says:

        To know someone IS evil requires being able to know his heart and intentions. To know someone is behaving evil or preaching another gospel only requires holding up their actions, words and teaching to the light of God’s word. We are only called to judge behaviors, actions, words and false teachings according to the Bible. We are ALL inherently evil according to our human heart so in one way you are correct that he is evil but in that same context you and I are just as guilty of being evil. That’s why we need a savior. I am in full support of calling this man into account for false teachings and predatory behaviors if the behaviors reported here are true. To say a man or women is ultimately evil and beyond redemption is an equally wrong and false doctrine. While you have not directly implied or stated Henry Wright is beyond redemption the tone of dialogue definitely gives me that impression. In the video Paul Coughlin outlines three Biblical principle for thoughtfully engaging in conflict. 1. Is what I am saying or going to say true? 2. Am I saying it in love? Not an ooyed gooey feeling but rather ask yourself – Do I have that individuals best interests at heart? If seeking another’s best interest is not a factor in your approach or decision making process your are in error even you answered yes to number 1. It is possible and all to common to speak the truth and yet be in error in the way you do it. Loving the truth, knowing truth and addressing false teaching is not a license to go on a verbal shooting spree nor should we ever shy away from directly confronting false teacher to their face. There is balance in all Biblical truth. God is fully righteous and full of grace yet neither are in conflict with each other. 3. The third question to ask yourself is Does it need to be said? In this case absolutely his false teaching must be held to the scrutiny of scripture and exposed for what they are. If we stoop to attacking the man himself by judging him more evil than ourselves (judging his intent and intrinsic God given value as a human being) then we have compromised our calling in addressing the error of his teachings and fall into Biblical error ourselves. Speaking the truth without love is as sinful as saying we love someone but fail to speak the truth. Thomas I sincerely appreciate your love, passion and zeal for the truth and in no way do I have any disagreement on that. In fact you have inspired be to increase my level of filtering my thoughts and addressing untruths when I run across them. IMHO the Bible draws a very clear line however against jumping into a role God has reserved for Himself alone by judging a man’s soul by defining him as ultimately and inherently evil and beyond any hope of God’s redemption. I also believe crossing that line is counter productive and a distraction to bring falsehood to light. We are not fighting the man we are fighting the falseness in his teachings. I do agree the falseness of his teachings remain false regardless of his intentions in doing so. Intentions can be very important in how you approach correcting an individual and holding him accountable face to face for an effective intervention if you truly desire God’s best for them without compromising the truth. If someone does not desire and hope for God’s best for someone no matter how offensive their error then they are walking in unforgiveness and need to check their heart before addressing any grievance.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        he’s evil.

        i’m not.

        decide for yourself if you are and if you think he is.


      • Scooter B Says:

        I’m sure this will be one of those agree to disagree things and I have no problem with that. It is not an essential doctrinal issue. I am interested in hearing your basis for knowing he is evil. It would be a little easier for me to half way accept your position if you had spent time with him personally or seen him teaching one thing in public then going behind closed doors to laugh at his followers or comment on how much money he was taking in. I’m not going to debate your points or reasons for coming to your conclusions but other than the area’s we agree he is in error on I have not heard the evidence for your conclusion other than “you know he is evil”. If you have additional personal knowledge I missed somewhere and are comfortable enough to share it I sincerely would like to know more. I’m not here to defend the man by any means but being committed to adhering to truth I have to question accusations against people I agree with and those to verify the basis of those accusations. I think Robert Tilton is a crook but if someone accused him of robbing a bank when I had personal knowledge that he was somewhere else at the time I would still be bound by truth to come forward and tell the truth. I might not like it but to not come forward with the truth would be the same as lying.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Rev. Wrong is evil.

        And it’s best if others considered him as such, as to consider him as otherwise opens them up to the insipid deception, cloaked witchcraft and doctrines of demons he perpetuates for selfish gain of power, notoriety, and riches.


      • Scooter B Says:

        Yes evil is evil but you saying a man is evil does not make it so. Jewish custom required two or three witnesses to convict someone and even then the jury could be lying. I believe his teaching are false and constitute another gospel and agree his teachings overall are evil.

        If you are truly committed to truth in practice and not just as a theological exercise you would readily provide the evidence with which you have based your conclusions on.

        If you want to define him as an evil creature for your own intents and purposes you are of course free to do so. If you want to define a man in public as evil and nothing but evil without anything but because you say so surely you cannot expect us to buy into it or not ask for supporting evidence.

        I have been taught many things out of the Bible which were taken out of context or misinterpreted. They were not foundational theological differences that define orthodox Christianity. These men were not evil because there were IMHO some errors in their understanding. None of us have completely all knowing understanding of scripture. Those who are convinced they do are in grave danger. The Pharisees were equally convinced while completely wrong.

        Most of these pastors if not all believed what they were teaching was accurate and had good hearts. They would not hesitate to repent and change their belief system if someone convinced on a Biblical basis why their teaching was in error. My understanding of how to correctly interpret the Bible is an ongoing process but much more informed and entrenched than it was five years ago.

        We both agree his teaching are in error and evil in the context that he really is teaching another gospel. There is only on person that could pronounce someone as fully and completely evil without providing evidence that I would trust and of course that is God alone. To accept another’s conclusion in this regard without any evidence or logically built case would represent a complete lack of commitment to being a truth bearer.

        I can call Henry Wright a monkey but calling him that doesn’t make it so. The apostle Paul calling him that wouldn’t make it so.

        Again I sincerely want to see the evidence, read your definition or qualifications for pronouncing someone truly evil in all regards. Yet you offer little other than “whatever” and restating your opinion. I take no pleasure in arguing but for you to continue condemning the man rather than his teaching without providing any first hand knowledge does not represent someone being committed to the truth in practice.

        It is completely possible the man is completely evil to his core but I have not seen enough evidence to even invoke a grand jury in that regard. On the other hand the evidence is completely clear that he is teaching non Biblical doctrine and has crossed the line into preaching another gospel.

        Present your definition and convincing evidence and I may very well agree with you completely. Until then my adherence to seeking the truth in all things requires evidence to go with accusations otherwise they are nothing more than accusations without supporting evidence. I’m not defending the man but demanding sufficient evidence before accepting anything as truth. This is the very character Paul complimented the Berean church on as applied to doctrine and we should do no less.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Whatever…. I will maintain considering him as evil, as I wish. I will have NOTHING to do with his deeds of darkness, and will continue to EXPOSE them energetically, as Scripture commands.

      • Scooter B Says:

        Thomas I just discovered that you were the one whom was so gravely affected by Henry Wright telling your wife to make an ultimatuum for you to drink the kool aid or that she should divorce you and keep your children from you. THAT is the kind of evidence I was looking for. Based on that I have NO ISSUE with your public references to him being evil. That right there speaks volumes to his manipulation and disregard for scripture. I have experienced the pain of abandonment and divorce and if there was a “pastor” recommending my wife leave I would be in his office with my pastor and in his face.

        I had actually shared your experience from what I had remembered of it two days ago to a former councelor who had recommended BIH. I’m tyring to get him to dig deeper into this group, laid out the classic cult behaviors reported here and the multiple theological errors discuised in his book. You have every reason based on your experience to define this man as evil. You have first hand knowledge of his behavior and not just his teaching. That should have been your leading response. My followup was based on someone coming to that conclusion based soley on his erroneous teaching. You have been harmed by his manipulation of your family and not merely false teachings. My condolences and prayers go out to you.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        Yes, sorry . . . it’s just that I am up to my eyeballs in this situation right now:

        My wife has since trumped up false, bogus charges of domestic violence (just a few weeks ago) and was successful in getting me arrested (guilty until proven innocent). I am currently fighting TWO concurrent EVIL court-legal proceedings, both designed to keep my kids from me. They are successful so far (ie. I haven’t had ANY contact with them in the last 3 weeks).

        Her mother is fully engulfed in the BIH cult, and so is my “wife’s” church. Her mother charged me with burglary, theft and ID theft for reapplying a check I thought she was giving to my “wife” for our rent . . . i paid our utilities with it instead. Now, i have TWO felony allegations I have to disprove!

        In the meantime, I’m also embroiled in a school district / board of education investigation into my “wife’s” church’s misuse and abuse of a public school system program (integrating their odd religious beliefs into the school day illegally, as they indoctrinate the children, including one of MY KIDS!).

        My “wife” and her mom also conspired to terminate my lease with my landlord while I was away helping my aging and ailing mother in an emergency hospital visit . . . and defrauded me by embezzling MY $1000 deposit to apply to THEIR new lease!

        ALL OF THIS HAS OCCURRED IN THE LAST 4-6 WEEKS . . . and they all (including the church) are totally immersed in Rev. Wright’s evil . . . they even are making it REQUIRED Seminars for MEMBERSHIP in the church… and THIS is why we are getting divorced . . . no adultery, no alcohol, no abuse, no gambling…

      • Scooter B Says:

        Thomas my heart goes out to you. It is so wrong Henry Wright is breaking up your family, leading your “wife” into such sinful behavior and then having her trump up all the false legal charges.

        My X tried to get full custody of my daughter just because she felt inconvienced with the distance she had to drive to pick up her daughter. She trumped up false charges but the judge dismissed it without it even making it into a court hearing.

        I will be praying for righteousness to prevail and your children to be freed and protected from this cult. Continue to be strong and courageous in your fight against the evil darkness of this cult.

        Father please protect Thomas children from this cult. Cover their hearts and minds with your truth and cast out the lies of the enemy that this cult leader want to poision them with. Reveal to them your word rightly divided so they can recognize the lies being taught. Reunite them with their father who can help lead them into truth and bring light into the darkness they have exposed to. Amen.

        If Henry Wright does not see the light and repent of his perverted teachings of fase gospel he will wish he had been tied to a millstone and dropped into the ocean.

        Father I pray if it is your will that you bring Henry Wright into a Paul like experience when he was on the road to Damascus. Take him out of the false teaching game along with his deceived followers so that your truth will prevail. Bring his darkenss to light in order that no more of your children my fall into his deceptions and lies that violate your word. Blind him with your truth so that he may now see his error and turn from it completely. I ask this in the name of your son Jesus and for the sake of redeeming and healing your children from his bondage of lies. Amen

        p.s. They have been attempting to diagnose me for at least a year now . . . at first it was “psychologically unwell”, “mentally unstable” and “emotionally abusive” . . . “by all clinical standards”.

        Then, they moved on to: “Paranoid Personality Disorder”, “Antisocial Personality Disorder” and finally “Bipolar Personality Disorder”. . . .

        Finally, when THOSE labels didn’t stick (after I went to three psychologists to prove them wrong), they resorted to sticking me with: “You have a spirit of rejection” . . . “Everyone has a spirit of rejection, you just have it in spades.”

        What?!?!?! EVERYONE has “it”???? Everyone MUST have it and MUST be “delivered” from it? They all (esp. my “wife” demanded that I “get diagnosed, get treated” and “get delivered, and reconcile to the FELLOWSHIP . . . ENTERING INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AS A CHILD (as if I hadn’t already, and as if the FELLOWSHIP itself WAS the Kingdom of Heaven) . . . ALL BEFORE I WOULD EVEN HAVE A SNOWBALL’S CHANCE IN HELL TO RECONCILE TO MY WIFE!!!

        When i refused this ungodly, unbiblical, unholy ultimatum, the heat was turned up on me and I was run out of Dodge City, so to speak. AND it all came down on me starting the DAY that I stood before the fellowship, at God’s leading, and openly confessed through weeping that I still wanted God to heal my marriage, heal my “wife” even if not, and that I wanted her to be with my kids as much as possible. I told her that I hoped she could begin to remember all the good times we’ve had the last 20 years. . . . . . . 3 hours later, she arranged for the police to swarm me and take me into custody as I stepped outside the doors of the church.

      • Scooter B Says:

        I totally understand. I haven’t even had any offiicial contact with them to allow any manipulative abuse to start but bases on the behavior you and others have described along with the character of his disciples that have posted here; I don’t want to give them an opportunity.

        Wrightiswrong – Glad you liked it. I watched it twice last night before posting the link here, on FB and e-mailing the link to about 15 close Christian brothers. So much good stuff. I’ve been digging through No More Christian Nice Guy the last month and revived with that “jalapeno in my belly”.

    • Scooter B Says:

      That is so wrong and unGodly in every single way. I know in a familiar sort of way your pain… not the exact same thing of course and no cult leader was involved in pulling my X away from God the church and common sense. Your children need you in their lives and any pastor that stands in the way of reconciliation and encourages lies and deceit in order to accomplish it is not in fellowship with God. That is pure evil fruit growing from a corrupt self “righteous” prideful heart.

      My X has Borderline Personality Disorder or BPD which is a severe narcissistic personality disorder that has both psychotic and neurotic characteristics (hence the use of bordeline) I was forced into a medical disability due to a sleep disorder of neurological origin a year and a half after the divorce was final. I desperately wanted to find help for her, get her to return to marital counseling (she walked out after a few sessions) had episodes of suicidal thoughts with one attempt before I knew her and had to be admitted once during our marriage for expressed suicidal thoughts. She told me on Christmas day she wanted a divorce.

      After I refused to succumb to her threats and grant her primary custodial rights so my daughters school would be based on where she moved to she told the lawyer that she hired that I was disabled due to a psychiatric disorder which if it had gone to court would have become a public record! She was seeing a psychiatrist and on multiple medications (not correctly diagnosed yet based on my research) and I was not seeing any psychiatrist nor on any psychiatric medications.

      Her lawyer sent an affidavit questionnaire and pulled my medical records but could not find any medical evidence of any psychiatric illness so she asked for an extension to have more research time. This was three months after the legal notification. My lawyer explained to the judge that they have had three months and couldn’t find what did not exist and requested the charges be dropped and her accusations stripped from any public records. The judge found in my favor fortunately. It was a gut wrenching three months although I knew her accusations had no merit or foundation you just never know what skewed perspective a judge may allow themselves to have. It cost me a couple thousand in legal and court fees even though it never made it to trial.

      I allowed that woman to manipulate me due to threats or insinuations of divorce trying to “save the marriage” or buy time for her to return to God and church fellowship involvement but of course it only got worse. I read four books on BPD and the Boundaries in Marriage book hoping to save the marriage and out of necessity to save my sanity. Unfortunately I did not recognize it as manipulation at first and even if I had I didn’t know appeasement for a moment of peace only makes it much worse.

      Keep standing firm, yield to no threats yet remain in control under His guidance…. Just an affirmation to stay strong because you have been demonstrating that resolve all along. I believe justice will ultimately prevail and your children will again share time with you with at least equal custody time. I pray their mother is delivered from the demonic false teachings so she does not infect your children with these unGodly beliefs that are lies of the devil.

        Thanks Thomas,

        I apologize if I was a little hard on you at first. The stories of families being broken up and divorces incited by this man bother me the most. I just happened to see your post about that experience while trying to scroll down to this thread.

        I very much remembered reading your experience ever since finding this blog but forgot who it was.

        If there is a way to exchange e-mail address or phone numbers more privately you are welcome to e-mail or call me anytime. I’m pretty sure you have a good local support group from your character but regardless if I can help shoulder your burden and pray with you – I’m here for you.

        Although I hated to see divorce happen to two of my closest friends long before I married; I really depended on them for support and needed it. I’m still praying your wife will get delivered from this cult before a divorce happens to you but if not I HIGHLY recommend the Divorce Care class and support groups if you can find one locally.

    Hypnotic messaging? Has anyone noticed that the promo DVD in the book, “A Most Excellent Way”, Henry repeats himself 3x “you will remember this later” (i am saying this off the cuff, I would have to watch the DVD to be perfectly accurate). I found it odd that he repeats this several times and thought that maybe it was a personal quirk.
    I have not read the entire book just the preface but found it interesting. I do think there maybe some truth to the 3 levels of separation. 1. from God, 2. from ourself, 3. from others. I do believe that the sins of our fathers do present themselves through generations. i.e. families with anger issues. There is also an other method called “German New Medicine” that has similiar principles, basically that unresolved conflict develops disease – depending on the conflict it will affect were the disease will present it self. This method as far as I know has no religous affliation, though the man is called a quack as well.
    Healing in the Bible is through faith. The Israelites were healed by looking at the bronze snake, this is faith as the bronze snake itself can’t heal.
    In response to one of the previous comments of idols, I think we are creating idolatry any time we are putting anything before God, that could be sports, money, etc.
    On a side note in Eastern Chinese medicine emotions are held in the organs: Heart & Small Intestine – Joy (too much or too little); Stomach & Spreen – sympathy, foggy thinking, lack of mental clarity; Lung & Large Intestine – grief, worry, rigid thinking; Kidney & Bladder – FEAR, phobias, holding onto grudges; Liver & Gall Bladder – anger, bitterness, judgemental, resentment. I don’t know if any of this is comparable to what Henry Wright is saying about diseases. Thought I would just add that info in.
    My 2 cents.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      That is interest that you should mention hypnotic messaging. I too noticed that quality about Henry’s writing among other things. (copy from my notes:)
      III. Henry Wright’s book –
      A. Jumps from one topic to confuse the reader or listener.
      B. The numerous verses quoted makes one assume that Wright’s teaching are biblical. But Henry does not divide the word with integrity.
      C. Henry repeats his points or scriptures over and over – a psychological technique which leads people to believe that what he is saying is the truth. It reminds me of how hypnosis is induced?
      D. He throws in many verses that don’t relate to the topic to appear Biblical.
      E. Many verses are totally out of context and not explained in God’s intended light.
      E. This book could have been edited many times over by now. The excuse that is it a collection of recorded presentation is just an excuse to continue with deception.

      I found an article on healing that really got my interest. They described four types of healing:
      Natural Healing – occurs most often a gift of God for which we can praise God
      Medical Healing – mainly slow, healing may or may not last, fairly verifiable, Glory goes to God
      Psychological Healing – positive thinking & affirmations, hypnosis
      Paranormal/Demonic Healing – for the purpose of leading a person into bondage and cults

      Satan will use anything to get us off God’s track.

    • Scooter B Says:

      Can’t really comment on the possibility of hypnotic messaging. Dr Wright’s PHD is in Psychology however so take that into account.

      The fact that unresolved conflict causes stress and that stress causes bad things to happen in our bodies is no new revelation. The definition of stress is foundationally unresolved conflict. Unresolved conflict can be spiritual, vocational, relational or just overworked without adequate resources.

      Knowing Jesus is enough because He told us “His burden is light”. Dr Wrights burden sound heavier than the Pharisees during the time Jesus walked the earth.

      BTW learned family behaviors have nothing to do with the false doctrine of generational curses. They are learned behaviors that are modeled and become habit- nothing more. I have a link in another of my posts to a Biblical explanation that clearly shows that the teaching of generation curses contradicts scripture and specifically Jesus own words clarifying the misinterpretation of Old Testament writings by the Pharisees.

      • ANON Says:

        HW does NOT have a PHD in anything much less psychology. He is a self taught person. He studied psychology and premed briefly in college. His doctorate is honorary from some bogus place. He does openly admit to studying Scientology and copying their marketing techniques. This admission would be on record as his “sermons” or whatever you want to call what he does…are recorded. They are then transcribed and make into his teaching materials. (Also, The one on one ministry sessions are nothing more then a Scientology’s auditing session ministered to by another HW zombie who is completely unqualified to delve deep into a person’s psyche and bring them into their past as they do in these auditing sessions…They have you write down all the trauma’s in your past, they go over with you one by one, They put a lot of blame on parents and then blame you if you were raped or are sick, you did something wrong and you need to take the responsibility for it…and then they cast out demons and you are told if you yawn burp, fart or throw up or try to fall asleep, this is a demon leaving. I kid you not, I attended 3 of these sessions with 3 different “ministers”) You go away feeling eerily cleansed…I think it is because it is like therapy thru all the talking…but then there is this weird weird weird occult aspect (feeling) to it that I cannot describe.)

        NO ONE is yawning out any demons . . . they are taking demons IN.

        My ex’s pastor tried to do this to me; I flatly refused.

        He said that EVERYONE has a “demon of rejection”, especially ME. He said that he had just recently been delivered himself .. . . and yet had been preaching for the past 12 years!?!?

        OMG! My ex chose THEM to follow, and to junk me, our marriage, and devastate our children in the process.

        This BIH is worse than garbage . . . it’s demonic.

    Thank you for this blog. It seems as though God has graciously begun to reveal the truth about Henry Wright before I got in too deep. I have been suffering with candidiasis (immune system problem) for several years and have been searching the bible and looking for Christian teaching so that I can understand the truth about healing and my disease in particular. I really believe it is God’s will to heal and I desperately want to understand about healing. I hope this desire for knowledge has not become an idol in my heart, but Lord surely you want us to know the truth? I thank God that His Spirit leads us into all truth…and away from all deception if we cleave to him.

    I was involved in a cult about 5 years ago, not long after I was born again. After the Lord revealed to me the danger that I was in I immediately removed myself and repented. However recently I think God has been showing me that more damage was done than I initially realised. In the past four years it seems as though everything has gone wrong. Mental breakdowns, family and financial problems, no peace, no health. I’ve quit my job because of the depression, exhaustion and confusion I’ve been experiencing.

    I think the Lord is now trying to show me that I have a religious spirit of legalism that was transferred to me while I was involved in the cult and its teachings. I really believe that I ‘fell from grace’ and this is why I have had so many problems over the years, mainly with confusion. I’ve seen that when you put yourself back under the law you come under a curse. It makes so much sense to me now…God had to give me a dream to explain grace again to me, and the dream was amazing. It felt so good…I was giving things I didn’t deserve. Also I keep getting lead to Galatians, particularly to the scripture about remembering how you were first saved. Now I see it wasn’t a case of simply saying sorry for being in the cult and getting on with life. The cult damaged me long-term. But I am also starting to see that there is hope, and that life and the bible might not be as complex as I have been led to believe.

    It’s like the Holy Spirit is taking me through a deliverance process and that’s why the confusion has increased recently. The mindset that I didn’t know I had is being dismantled as I am relearning and remembering the grace which saved me.

    With regards to Henry Wright…I came across his book because he taught about candida; that it was rooted in fear and anxiety. Fear and anxiety have been a major problem for me so I witnessed to this teaching. To be honest I still think that my health problem is because of fear and anxiety (which I had before the cult I was involved in.) I can’t make sense of this. I know that in cults there is a mixture of true and false teaching so I have to be careful of what I reject and what I keep, just in case I reject truth. My mind is in a fragile state right now.

    As I read through the book it seemed to make sense, but because the Lord was speaking to me so much about legalism I became a bit suspicious when I saw SO MANY blocks to healing. I said “Lord is it really this complicated?” “why is my life so confusing?” The idea of disease being a lack of sanctification sounded scriptural to me…but the red flags came when I searched him out on Youtube to see him in person.

    God has given me the gift of ‘discerning of spirits’ which I am so grateful for. I’ve learnt that people who do not have the gift think you are crazy when you describe certain things pertaining to this gift but please bear with me. When I saw his youtube video he looked like a ‘wolf’ in the spirit realm. God will often show me the spirit that a person is operating in, whether of human attitude, God, demons. To me someone might look like a snake or a weasel in the spirit. or they might look like a witch or a reptile etc. I was surprised at what I had seen (in the spirit) because it wasn’t what I was expecting from reading the book. I also noticed that the manner in which he spoke was overly confident and overly persuasive. This led me to revisit the book’s teachings to test it in more detail, and find what it is that makes it ‘wolfy.’

    I started to write out what I thought the way for me to be healed was from the book’s standpoint. I think it is basically recognise the root to the problem (in my case anxiety) and then confess it and repent.

    The problem was that I didn’t know how to repent. How do I just ‘stop’ being fearful? I see that fear is a sin but once I have confessed…what now? I am renewing my mind…but when do I know when I will be healed? What do I need to DO to be healed? Confession and repentance is biblical but something doesn’t add up. Argh confusion! BLOCKS to healing? Where are these in the ministry of Jesus?

    When I look at Jesus healing in the bible he didn’t say they had to forgive this person or that person. he didn’t say stop being fearful, renew your mind, repent and then you will be healed. My recent learning about legalism makes me think ‘a more excellent way’ is a more legalistic way…?

    So then how am I healed? I think legalism always wants to add a condition…I think I just have to believe that healing is a free gift and receive it by faith. My sins are forgiven…ok. So I’m righteous because of Jesus. So if we are not under the curse of the law why do Christians get sick? Maybe it is because of legalism? Maybe it’s not a lack of sanctification but a lack of grace? I’m not sure. I’d like to understand more about the topic of sanctification.

    I just have to believe that God is going to cut through this confusion. I think the answer is grace. the bible says confess your faults to one another and pray for each other so that you can be healed. there seems to be so much that suggests there are conditions to healing…but grace is a gift…can anyone help me?

    I believe Henry Wright’s cult is legalistic and occultic. In my opinion the man is wicked and full of deception. I see it in him…it reminds me of Todd Bentley and his demonic kundalini healings that so many were deceived by. Oh Lord help us…I want to come back to you Jesus, like when I first got saved and I tasted freedom. I want my life back. I want abundant life. I believe it is available.

      Bless you! I hear your struggles. For me it has been a long struggle for accepting what God has put before me. I want to be in control, but I’m not. I try and accept the fact that nothing I am experiencing has not passed through God’s hand to me. We live in a fallen world and it feels like it is getting darker and darker. When I can let God rule and I can accept it, good or bad, life is not so painful. I know I am in GOD’s mind and in his control. Fear for me is not accepting what God has or what God will allow to come into my life. Then I am saying that I don’t trust God with my life.

      I agree with you that legalism puts us under the curse. Jesus made it clear when he was talking to the Jews that if they wanted legalism then to think anger on someone was the same a murder. I’m not a Jew and I choose to live under Jesus’s grace and finished work on the cross. So for me I seek to love God and I try not to dwell on all the do’s and don’t. I do good to other because of God’s love not because of any rules and regulations. My goal is to love on the Lord and to spend time with HIM. When the Holy Spirit convicts me of sin and I repent. Since Jesus died for my past sins, my present sins and my future sins, I know I am forgiven. I need to allow that forgiveness to wash over me and not hang on it my guilt or fears. Jesus took my place on the cross so I can be sinless before God! HIS work is done, I am, we are forgiven. We need to rest assured in this.

      When trying to get rid of something you need to replace it with something or else the cleaned house will be filled with even more evil than we started with. In other words you may want to fill you mind with praise and thanksgiving when you feel fear and anxious. Memorizing some of God’s promises (verses) that He will never leave or forsake us might also help. Ask all your Christian friends pray for you. Fill you days with Christian praise music.

      Below is an article I copied off the internet about Suffering as a Believer. Some of it makes me feel unsure but Michael has some good points to make as well. I pray this may be words that God can use to give you understanding and comfort.

      Suffering as a Believer
      Submitted by michael on Thu, 03/08/2007 – 12:43

      * big issues
      * faith
      * teaching

      Christian believers are not immune from suffering. In fact, sometimes it seems that sincere Christian believers suffer more than others! God has promised us many things, but He has not promised us immunity from suffering in this life. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19). “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” (2 Timothy 3:12). Suffering will be a reality for us in one form or another until Jesus returns. The issue of suffering is a complex one, since there are many kinds of suffering, many possible reasons for each kind, and often many perplexing mysteries. Our faith in the goodness of God may be tested through sufferings, and our responses to suffering in this life have the potential to make us or break us.

      How convenient it would be for us if God somehow guaranteed that we will never be severely tested in this life – that all will be sweetness, comfort and prosperity! It is a false teaching, sadly often found in charismatic circles, that says that if we are in covenant with God we will escape serious suffering – either by simply rebuking it in Jesus name or by calling upon God, our covenant partner, who will immediately come and rescue us. No, God will rescue us, but it may well be that deliverance will not come about quickly as we would like. God has his reasons for this, and the answers are generally not simple, nor can we always know them while we are suffering.

      There is sweetness, comfort and prosperity in the gospel, but there are also fiery trials, afflictions, sufferings, persecutions and rejection. Paul knew what it was to be abased, and he also knew how to abound – sometimes he had more than enough, other times he suffered need and hunger (Philippians 4:12). This was not because he lacked faith, but because he had faith. True faith takes us out of the comfort zone into areas where we enter into conflict with Satan’s kingdom and must demonstrate both patience and faith in the face of delays and difficulties. The person who has it as his goal to enjoy an easy life here and now is not following after love, but is living selfishly. God calls us to combat with a real enemy. Yes, He has given us power to overcome, but not without a fight (see teaching on spiritual warfare).

      Our Response to Suffering
      When we suffer, our response is very important. We need to remember that God still loves us, and while there is life, there is hope. The subject of our response to suffering needs to be explored further and developed with further teaching. Briefly, if you are suffering because of your sins, repent. If you are suffering because of mistakes, seek to learn and gain wisdom. If you are suffering because of sickness, give thanks to God for His promises and learn how to receive the healing God has for you. If you are suffering because of the sins of another Christian, confront him or her according to Matthew 18:15-18, forgive him or her and seek wisdom from God. If you are suffering persecution from unbelievers, offer your suffering to God, pray (James 5:14), give thanks to God and rejoice (James 1:2-5; 1 Peter 4:13)! You are also called to love your enemies, pray for them, and bless them. (Matthew 5:44). If you are suffering because the events of life seem to be conspiring to frustrate you, seek God about it, be patient in your wilderness experience and look forward to the promised land of blessings God is leading you into. Don’t allow discouragement and bitterness against God to enter your heart. Learn from the experiences of the children of Israel. Also try to get as many as possible to pray for you and your situation. This will help, but you still need patience.

      Praise God!
      Do not yield to discouragement because of suffering. This is one of the greatest battles we will ever face – the battle to stay encouraged and joyful. PRAISE is a major key to making it through trials. If offered sincerely, in faith, to God, it will help you get out of troubles faster than anything, and you will get stronger and feel less pain in the whole process, because God dwells in the praises of His people. Just consider how quickly God delivered Paul and Silas from the jail in Philippi when they praised Him in the middle of the night (Acts 16) ! This is a good example for us. Here is where major spiritual battles are won or lost. Praise God instead of grumbling. It will make the world of difference.
      I’m not saying all this is easy. On the contrary, it takes a lot of faith. But remember, God is faithful and He will always bless you in the long run if you obey his commands here.

      Different Reasons for Suffering
      Pain and suffering reveals the presence of a problem. Suffering reminds us that the Kingdom of Heaven has not manifested itself fully on earth. I remember speaking with a young Christian businessman in Romania, who had just lost his daughter in a car accident. His remark was “we can’t build the Kingdom of Heaven on earth”. And until the Kingdom of God manifests fully, there will always be problems, and corresponding pain to remind us of their existence.

      Our own mistakes
      Actually, this young man was speeding in his new car when he hit an unreliable patch of dirt road and ended up in an accident in which his wife was hospitalised, his daughter killed, and himself scratched on the face. Some suffering is indeed caused by our mistakes. Many times the mercy of God does prevent us from suffering serious consequences, but not always. God is sovereign, and there are usually factors in His decisions that we have no knowledge of whatsoever. We have to trust that indeed He is “working all things together for good for those who love Him, who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

      We can suffer loss when we get involved in investing in things without first getting enough relevant knowledge. God is not the one to blame when we rush headlong into business ventures or investments without getting the facts, and without getting a true assurance from God that it is indeed His plan. He may help us out of these problems of our own creation, but my experience and observation is that He usually does not rush to help us out of these situations, especially where we have wilfully disregarded wise counsel or in cases where we have declared that in getting into the problem we were acting on His instructions. We should be very cautious about saying “God told me to do this or that” because in doing so we risk God’s honor, not to mention our own integrity before men.

      It is not God’s will for us to be sick. Jesus provided for our healing. However, if we continue to abuse our bodies by eating junk food and drinking lots of caffeine, overworking, not exercising and denying ourselves sleep for extended periods, we may indeed suffer sickness because of the mistake of failing to take reasonable care of our bodies. God would be more interested in us correcting such bad habits than providing us with a quick and miraculous healing, in most cases.

      Our Sins
      “Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep thy Word” (Psalm 119:67). “It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn your statutes” (Psalm 119:71). “I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.” (Psalm 119:75).
      The sin of worry can weigh us down and cause mental, emotional and ultimately physical suffering. Why should we worry if we trust in God’s goodness? Why should we fear what man can do, especially since our God is in control over all things and will not allow us to be tempted beyond our ability to endure? (1 Corinthians 10:13).

      Many times fear is a sin. People fear many things. The only fear we really need is the fear of the Lord, and of course the natural fear of doing something stupid like putting our hand in the fire or jumping from a high place. Natural fears themselves can become obsessive for some – and it then becomes a bondage which must be broken. The fear of the Lord is really a deep reverence and even a trembling before the Word of God and before the presence of the Lord (Isaiah 66:2). The fear of the Lord is to hate evil, and God defines this holy fear as the key to true wisdom. We need more of this fear of the Lord, but many of the things people fear have nothing to do with this clean and holy fear at all.

      Fear of disaster brings a kind of mental torment. The fear itself often brings a suffering worse than the experience of the thing feared. The fear of rejection can paralyse us and cause much suffering in the social sphere of life. Fearing evil spirits is the foundation of much false religion and brings terrible bondage. Fear is a kind of “faith” for as yet unseen negative results. We need to avoid it as it attracts demons which can then often cause the very problems we are fearing.

      God wants us to be courageous, not unbelieving or fearful.
      Unbelief can cause all kinds of suffering, for ourselves and others. Unbelief keeps the blessings of God such as healing, forgiveness, fullness and freedom locked out from our lives. Unbelief is something God can’t stand. Christians with unbelief are dishonouring God by their thoughts, words and deeds.
      Sexual sin in the body can open the door for God’s judgments and discipline in this life. It can also bring a sense of shame and misery which robs us of the blessings of God in our soul – blessings like peace, joy and innocence. Sometimes sexual sin opens the door for sexually transmitted diseases. Other times it opens the door for other diseases. We’d be better off to always keep our hearts and minds pure. See teaching on sanctification for some understanding of how this can happen.

      Any kind of sin can open the door for satan to afflict us, and might also attract the discipline of God. The ways of God in this regard are complex and defy simple rules. But let’s bear in mind that sin always costs more than it gives.

      Suffering for Righteousness’ Sake
      It is a serious mistake to conclude that suffering is always due to our sins or mistakes. No, the Bible affirms that many times we are called to suffer for righteousness’ sake. Paul wrote to the Philippian Christians: “For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake.” (Philippians 1:29). The same is true for a large section of believers around the world today. The apostle Peter wrote, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.” (1 Peter 4:12,13).
      Sometimes we suffer because of honesty or obedience to God’s commandment to preach the gospel. Other times we suffer because of the hatred of those who are still under the power of the evil one to a greater or lesser extent, though we interact little with them. In these cases Jesus himself instructed us to love,pray for and bless our enemies (Matthew 5:44) and to overcome evil with good (Romans 12).

      Can We Overcome Suffering?
      A lot of our suffering is due to our own unwise choices. But we are actually guaranteed by God that we will suffer persecution if we truly want to live for Him. Sickness and disease – both physical and emotional – can generally be overcome in this life by faith in God, but suffering will remain part of our lives on and off until we pass beyond this temporal existence into what God has prepared for those who love Him.
      For the Christian, suffering helps us to keep our eyes on things of eternal value, to have compassion on others, to develop patience, to prove our love and loyalty towards God, and to prove to men the genuineness of our convictions and our love. It helps us to understand the heart of God better, because God suffers constantly – because He loves so much.
      Don’t just think of your own suffering, but consider the suffering of God Himself. Jesus Christ was no stranger to suffering. As God in the flesh, He was certainly willing to take some of his own medicine. He lived, suffered rejection and died a horrendous death of agony – and it was for you. Couldn’t you trust in a God like that?
      I welcome responses to this message.

      Paul 2 Corinthians 11
      27In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

      28Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

      29Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?

      30If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

      31The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

        Here is another sermon that I found to be a blessing to me.
        The Purpose of Trials by John MacCarthur
        As we begin our study tonight in James chapter 1, you might open your Bible to that wonderful section of Scripture that is filled with so much hope for those of us who go through trouble.
        While you’re doing that, I want to share a letter with you. A couple of weeks ago, someone called me on the phone in our church and said, “I wonder if you could make a phone call for us to a brother-in-law who just had a terrible tragedy in his life.”
        And I said I would be happy to do that. So I called. And when he picked up the phone, responded, I said, “Hi, this is John MacArthur in California,” he was in Colorado. And he was stunned for a moment because he had been listening to the radio and the tapes but had not met me personally, to my knowledge anyway. And he said, “I can’t believe this. I can’t believe you called me. I’m sitting here at the table writing you a letter.”
        And the letter came and in the middle of the letter, right in the middle of it it says, “Wow, praise God, this is where you called me.” This is on page four of the letter. “I feel like God is telling me something.”
        Six:fifteen P.M. on the sixteenth of March, 1986, the letter says this:
        I would like to tell you a story that begins over a year ago. The story is far too complex for me to write in a letter, at least in all its detail. I would like to share perhaps a paragraph of it with you.
        My name is Dan. I met you at Grace Church briefly and I sat four rows back, dead center on December 22, 1985, you remember? My wife was not able to come as she was ill. We have a son, Luke, age 4 and a daughter age 22 months.
        In March of 1985, my wife was diagnosed as having a brain tumor in her right cerebellum. On April 3, 1985, Carolyn went into surgery and they removed the tumor along with 80 percent of her right cerebellum.
        On Good Friday, April 3, 1985, things were looking good and they moved Carolyn out of the ICU into a regular room. April 5, 1985, I went home to her parents’ house around 10:30 P.M. I went in to kiss the kids good night and Sara, then 8 months old, was glassy-eyed and staring off into space. I thought she was gone. The doctors at Children’s Hospital took a spinal tap and said she had Spinal Meningitis. They told me she could die, or have any number of deficiencies. It would take 24 hours to tell if she would survive.
        It was then that I really lost control. I could do nothing. As my daughter lay there on an inclined crib, she had splints on her arms and one leg. She had an IV in her left foot, right hand, left hand and scalp. She was tied down with her arms spread and had three monitors on her chest.
        I wept. Lord, why her? She’s so innocent. I was totally at a loss for answers. There I was trying to keep this from my wife, Carolyn, who was in another hospital. I couldn’t. Lord, what would I do?
        On Easter morning, April 6, I was at Children’s, holding Sara with all the wires and IVs, sitting in a chair. And a nurse came in and told me that Sara had made it. The monitors indicated she had responded well to the antibiotics and they could take off all of the apparatus.
        As you can imagine, during that time I did a lot of footwork between the two hospitals. In doing that, I was using Carolyn’s car and she listened to radio station KWBI A.M. 91, somewhere in Longmont, Colorado. That’s where I first heard you. I don’t remember the date, but you were in the series, “How to handle persecution,” from the book of Acts.

        First time I heard, I had to stop the car. I was crying too hard to drive. My wife, Carolyn, courageously fought back from her surgery and even though her motor skills would never be normal, she never gave up. She was dedicated to her children and me and her Savior and Lord.
        I’ve included some of her notes from the Bible study on “Kingdom Life.”–And they’re in the back of the letter, her own notes, written with obviously a scrawling hand that would reflect some of the brain damage.
        She was not a Bible scholar but she loved the Lord. She died May 8, 1986 in my arms, the third tumor was inoperable.
        Praise God, we have a Savior who has conquered death. As I write this letter, I have wet eyes and the smell of funeral flowers fills my nostrils. I’m not writing this for sympathy. I just could not let it go any longer because I wanted you to know how much Grace To You has blessed me and my family. And I speak for those outside my family as well.
        Please give my thanks to your staff at Grace To You and also to Grace Community Church. –And then I love this at the end–Many of your church have prayed for Carolyn and I and the family and P.S., we’re praying for you and your new building. Your friend, Dan Hummel(?)
        Now there’s a man who went through a very, very wrenching emotional experience. In one sentence he said, “She died in my arms,” and the very next sentence he said, “Praise God for a Savior who has conquered death.” In the most profound of human agony, for the Christian there is great hope…there is triumph no matter how deep the trouble.
        It’s all a question of perspective. The family that I mentioned to you this morning, the Romanoski(?) family, whose two daughters were killed yesterday, have been staying with Russ and Heidi Moir. I asked Russ what their attitude is and he said to me, “To be honest with you, they were rejoicing today.” Rejoicing? Over the death of two daughters in an auto accident?
        “Well, they’re rejoicing because both their daughters knew Jesus Christ and the other two students with them who were spared do not know Christ.” Cause for rejoicing.
        It’s perspective. Going through any trial of life for a Christian can be a joyous experience if perspective is right. Now imagine for yourself the worst trial you could possible face. Maybe for some people it might seem to be financial crisis, all your investments are lost, your life savings. For other people it might be the loss of employment, you’re fired, you have no income to support your family, you lose all your dignity. Or the announcement from the doctor that you have just received word that you’re going to have to have a triple bypass immediately. Or that you have a massive brain tumor. Or, your husband does, or your son does. Or, the word has just come over the telephone that your daughter has had a terrible car accident and has died. Or, been raped. Or your wife has been murdered by a drug addict who broke into the house. Or maybe that your child has a fatal disease and only a few days to live. And we could go on and on and on. And frankly, folks, all of those things touch us one way or another, don’t they? Because as Job put it, “Man is born into trouble as the sparks fly upward.”
        And anybody who tries to create a fantasy world where everything is perfect is only setting themselves up for even a more profound sorrow. It must be anticipated. And I have to confess to you that the anticipation of the reality of sorrow and agony and trouble coming close to us, cast a sort of a shadow even over our highest joys, doesn’t it? In a sense, it mitigates even the most wonderful events of life. And maybe that’s the reason that though Jesus wept rather commonly, as Scripture records, no place in Scripture does it ever say He laughed.
        Perhaps He did. But His happiness at any occasion certainly would have been offset by His overwhelming sense of sadness over sin. All of us, to some degree or another, if we think realistically know we’re going to face trouble. We’re going to have to look right in the eyes of agony at some point in our lives. And we need to understand how to face that.
        I was trying to think this week as I sat in my study of what to me would be the severest trial of all trials. The most painful experience to go through. And I thought about the classic Job who lost his family and his crops and his animals and everything. And I thought about that for a while, lost all his possessions, lost all his children. And worse, he was left with a wife who didn’t understand anything. He was personally struck with disease. And that is admittedly a heavy-duty trial.
        But as I thought about it more, I thought of another person who in my judgment, and you may or may not agree with me, but who in my judgment probably was faced with potentially the severest trial any human being could ever endure. And the man’s name is Abraham.
        Turn with me for a moment back to Genesis 22. I really wanted to get into James but I just got to thinking about this and felt that perhaps this would give us a very good perspective. I think what God put Abraham through is unquestionably the most unimaginable test that anyone was ever given.
        In Genesis 22 verse 1, it says, “It came to pass after these things that God did test Abraham.” This is a peirasmos, folks. This is a trial for Abraham. This is a test for Abraham. He was faced with the severest trial that is imaginable. God did test Abraham.
        “He said to him, Abraham, He said, Behold, here I am. And He said, Take now your son…notice the emphasis…your only Isaac whom you love.” Almost as if God is rubbing it in. Not just your son, but your only son. Not just your only son but the one you love. “And go into the land of Moriah and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell you about.” It’s incredible. I want to sacrifice out of you and I want a human sacrifice, I want your son, I want you to go there, I want you to kill him as an offering to Me.
        This did not fit Abraham’s theology. There was no history in the covenant of God of human sacrifice. That was a pagan thing. No child of God would ever offer his own in human sacrifice. Furthermore, this was the son of promise. God had touched the dead loins of Abraham and allowed him to bring to a consummation, a relationship with his wife Sarah who was also dry in her own loins and produce a son, a son of the covenant, a son of promise, a son of hope, a son of Sarah who was barren all her life.
        Why would God call for human sacrifice when He never had called for human sacrifice before? And to do so would be the antithesis of everything Abraham knew to be true about God. Why would God go to great lengths to enable a man and a woman nearing 100 years of age who had been barren all their life to produce a son then ask the son be killed? Why would God make a promise to Abraham that he would be the father of nations and the seed that would come out of his loins would number as the sands of the sea and the stars of the heaven and then kill the only child he had?
        The whole idea was absolutely bizarre. All hope of progeny in old Abraham would die. All hope of promise would die. Abraham would be killing his love, killing God’s promises, striking a blow at God’s Word, striking a blow at the character of God, striking a blow at the covenant faithfulness of God, killing the promise of God and cutting off the line of Messiah. Absolutely inconceivable.
        And what makes it the severest trial ever is not that Isaac was to die, but that Abraham was to kill him with his own hand. Incredible. It’s one thing to have the one you love die, it’s something else to be told to kill that person. An unthinkable trial. A trial that made sense no way, not theologically, not in terms of the nature of God, not in terms of the plan of redemption, not in terms of God’s Word, not in terms of His love or of Abraham’s love for Isaac. If there ever was anything that God commanded to man to do that deserved a rather lengthy argument, this was it. And we would have understood if Abraham had said, “Look, God, could You explain this, please? This makes no sense. I can’t do it.”
        Notice his response. Verse 3, “And Abraham rose up early in the morning and saddled his ass and took two of his young men with him and Isaac his son.” What? In the morning he got ready to leave, to go. “And he cut the wood.” He had to cut his own wood to put his son on to burn him to death. And he rose up, and he went to the place which God told him to go.
        Amazing man, absolutely amazing man…no questioning, no delay, no argument, no dispute, no reaction. Three days later, verse 4, “Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place afar off. And Abraham said to his young men,” he had some people going along with him, “abide here with the ass and I and the lad will go yonder and worship.” Watch this one, “And come again to you.” You ought to underline that. I and the lad will go and worship and we’ll be back. Here’s the secret. Keep that in mind. He said we’ll both come back.
        “And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, laid it on Isaac his son. He took the fire in his hand and a knife and they went both of them together. And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, My father. He said, Here I am, my son. He said, Behold the fire and the wood but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” O my, this is agonizing…a trusting son who doesn’t know what’s going on, says in such a loving way, and gently to his father about this act of worship, “Where is the lamb? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering. So they went both of them together.” And you ought to underline that. You see, I believe down deep in Abraham’s heart, he knew God had something in mind that was consistent with God’s character and consistent with God’s covenant. I don’t know that he knew what it was specifically, but I think he had a good idea.
        “And they came to the place of which God had told him and Abraham built an altar there.” He had to build the altar. “Laid the wood in order, bound Isaac his son.” No struggle on Isaac’s part either. “Tied him up, laid him on the altar upon the wood. Abraham stretched forth his hand, took the knife to slay his son.” You can stop at that point.
        Unbelievable. Do you understand by reading that story what it means when it says “Abraham believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness?” Do you understand why the New Testament says that Abraham is the father of the faithful? He is the greatest single model of trust in God the Bible knows anything about apart from Christ. The man is at the point of plunging the knife into the breast of his own son. An unthinkable thing. What a trial. Contradictory, indescribable, painful, murderous, inconsistent with everything he knew about God…and yet he is submissive, he is obedient, he will worship at any cost. And God took Abraham’s willingness for performance. God judged him on his willingness and didn’t make him carry out the act.
        Verse 11, “The angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham. And he said, Here I am. And he said, Lay not your hand on the lad, neither do anything unto him for now I know that you fear God.” Guess what, this was a test and Abraham…what?…passed. He passed. He would obey the Word of God no matter what. “You have not withheld your son, your only son from Me.” Umph…
        Now Abraham shows us that we might be tested in things very near to us. We might be tested in things very dear to us like a son or a daughter, or a husband or a wife or a friend. We may have to offer up our own Isaac, give the ones we love most over to the Lord, not only in death but maybe in life. Maybe by letting them go the way that God wants them to go, not necessarily the way we want them to go. You see, when Abraham was willing to give up Isaac, no matter how much Isaac meant to him in every way, he showed by being willing to give him up…watch this…that he had the right to keep him. See that? He wasn’t possessive. He would release him to God’s will. Why? Because he would do anything God asked him to do.
        Now we all have a lot of trials in life, but I can’t ever imagine a trial like that. I can’t imagine what I would do if God told me to do that….I can’t imagine what I would go through. But I think we can conclude from this that the more excellent or the more difficult the obedience, the more excellent the obedience. And the more difficult the obedience, the more self-denial is inherent in it. So here you have an obedience that takes tremendous self-denial and therefore is the most excellent. Abraham passed the test. He says, “Now I know you fear God.” In other words, you truly reverence God at any cost. What a trial.
        The commentary on this trial of Abraham is given in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews. Would you look there for just a moment? In Hebrews chapter 11 and verse 17, how did Abraham do this? How could he bring himself to this? Hebrews 11:17 tells us very clearly, the first two words of verse 17 tell the whole story, “By…what?…faith Abraham…and here it comes again, you ought to underline it…when he was tested.” This was a test. I think about that on the radio. The other day I was driving in to the church and the little beep came on and said, “This is a test.” And I thought about Abraham. God was saying, “Beep…this is a test. Beep…the test has just been concluded.” This is a test. “And when he was tested, he offered up Isaac and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.”
        How could he do that? Here it comes…here’s the key, verse 19, “Accounting, or taking note of the fact, that God was able to raise him up even from…what?…the dead.” You know why he was willing to do that? Because he believed God could raise the dead. Had he ever seen the dead raised? Not to my knowledge, but he believed God could raise the dead. What he really believed was this, that God was so true to His Word that if He made a promise, He would even raise the dead to keep it. Tremendous faith.
        Now I don’t want to read too much into the story but it just may be that Abraham was a little disappointed when he wasn’t allowed to take his son’s life because he would like to have seen a resurrection. We don’t know that. But he believed, if need be, God would raise him from the dead.
        Now what does that tell us? It tells us that a man can go through the severest imaginable trial of life if he really trusts God. And if he believes that God is on the throne, that God will keep His promise, that God never makes mistakes, that God always fulfills His word and that God will accomplish His purposes, it is that kind of faith that passes the test. When Abraham was put through the peirasmos, when he was tried or tested, he passed. And I say again, is it any wonder, is it any wonder that this man is the single greatest human model of faith? In Galatians 3 verse 7, “Know ye therefore that they who are of faith are the sons of Abraham.” Anybody who lives by faith in God is in a spiritual sense a son of Abraham. He is the father of the faithful. He is the model of faith.
        Verse 9 says, “They who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.” He knew that through his loins the nations of the world would be blessed. And he knew God kept His word and God would bring it to pass.
        Now, beloved, we have to realize that God is going to allow us to go through tests. And the thing that sustains us in the midst of that is our trust in God, our faith that God is working all things out for His own holy purpose. I know we dream of worldly ease, and we like to create a perfect environment, we want to have absolute comfort. We want to get all the rough spots out of life. We want to make sure everything is perfectly settled. Frankly, I’ve never known such a moment in my life. Every once in a while I think there’s one there and I find out there isn’t.
        But the fact that we have temporary rest and temporary ease sort of fools us into thinking we might find a permanent exemption when that is not the case. I remember the words of the psalmist, you remember Psalm 30 verse 6, he said, “In my prosperity I said I shall never be moved.” Implied, but I was wrong. “When I was fat, I thought it would always be like this.” And you can live in a fool’s paradise if you want, never forecasting any trouble, promising yourself ease. But that isn’t what Christ said. He said, “Watch and pray that you enter not into peirasmos, trials.” Watch, look for trials, pray, ask for strength. Watch and pray.
        I was reading, as I often enjoy doing, the works of Thomas Manton, a marvelous Puritan writer. And I found one line in some of the things I was reading this week that stuck in my mind. He said this, “God had one Son without sin, but no son without a cross.” It just goes with the territory. We’re going to have trials. Psalm 23 says, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for Thou art with me.” Trials will come, the confidence is in the presence of God.
        Now, let me talk a little bit more by way of introduction and I said, I wanted to get into the text itself but so many things came into my mind this week that probably should have been covered in the introduction. So if you’ll indulge me a bit.
        Trials can come to us through several means and with several purposes in mind. Let me just suggest some to you, all right? First of all, trials come to test the strength of our faith. And we really did get into that last week, I just want to touch this one. Trials come to test the strength of our faith. There’s a great illustration of this in 2 Chronicles 32:31, you don’t need to look it up, I’ll quote that portion of it. It relates to Hezekiah who was king and of Hezekiah it says this, listen, “God left him to test him that he might know all that was in his heart.” Did you get that? God left him to test him that he might know all that was in his heart.
        That who might know? Well, not God. God didn’t need to know by testing what was in Hezekiah’s heart. He knew by omniscience, right? Does God have to test you to find out what’s in your heart? No. God doesn’t have to test any of us to find out what’s in our heart, God tests us so we can find out.
        In other words, He assists us in doing that spiritual inventory. He assists us in self-examination. I need to know and you need to know the strength of our faith. And so, God brings trials into our lives to demonstrate to us the strength or weakness of our faith. If you’re right now going through a severe trial, it is revealing to you the strength or weakness of your faith, isn’t it? If you’re shaking your fist at God, if you’re wondering why it’s happening, if you’re fretting all the time and worrying, if you’re in anxiety from morning till night, there’s a good indication that you have a weak faith.
        If, on the other hand, you’re going through a trial and you find yourself resting in the Lord, having placed it into His care, letting Him bear the burden of it, and going on your way rejoicing as best you can in a difficult situation, waiting for God to show you the way out, then you are seeing for yourself that you possess a strength of faith.
        So, in one sense then, we ought to be thankful for trials because they assist us in the inventory of our own faith. That’s very helpful. I always want to know where my faith is so that it can be stronger. For the stronger my faith is the more likely I am to be useful to God.
        When Habakkuk was going through the mystery of his own situation in the devastating promise that the Chaldeans were going to come and wipe out his people, in spite of everything he said, “Even if the fig tree doesn’t blossom, and the fruit is not in the vines and the labor of the olive fails and the fields yield no food and the flocks are cut off from the fold and there’s no herd in the stalls,” in other words, if everything that I know of as normative in life ceases, “Yet will I rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation, the Lord God is my strength and He will make my feet like mountain goat’s feet and make me walk upon my high places.”
        And then at the end he says, “To the chief singer on my stringed instruments, this is praise, sing it.” In the midst of an absolutely unsolvable mystery, his trust never wavered. He learned through that the strength of his faith.
        And so one of the purposes of testing is to reveal to you and to me the strength of our faith so that we can move along the path to greater strength. Job was tested. As a result of his testing in chapter 42, that familiar text, he says, “I had heard of Thee,” speaking of God, “with the hearing of mine ear, now my eyes seeth Thee and I repent, I abhor myself, I repent in dust and ashes.” In other words, he said I want to confess my sin. Lord, I have never really seen You the way I see You now. And I realize that some of the things I thought about You and said about You and felt about You were sinful. Lord, my faith in its weakness has been revealed. So trials come as a test to the strength of our faith.
        Secondly, we must recognize that trials come to humble us. They come to remind us not to think more confidently of our spiritual strength than we should. It’s closely connected to the first one, but a little different. They come not only to show us our strength, but they come to humble us. Lest we think that we are more strong spiritually than we are.
        This is illustrated, I think, perhaps as graphically as anywhere in Scripture in the wonderful testimony of Paul in 2 Corinthians 12, you know it. He says in verse 7, “And lest I should be exalted above measure.” In other words, lest I should think more highly of myself than I ought to think because of the abundance of the revelations. And to be caught up into the third heaven…and all of the things that Paul was able to do in the power of the Spirit, miracles and signs and wonders and mighty deeds and revelations coming out of him from God. And through all of these things, he could well have been exalted in his own mind. So lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh to buffet me, to just beat me up all the time, lest I should be exalted above measure.
        And we must realize that God allows trials in our lives, especially when we are blessed in places of spiritual service, to keep us humble, lest we think more confidently of our spiritual strength than we should and start to feel that we’re invincible.
        There’s a third reason as I thought these things through, and these are really my own reflections, trying to look at it from the biblical and the personal viewpoint. I believe the Lord brings trials in our life also to wean us from worldly things…to wean us away from worldly things. Have you found that maybe the older you’ve gotten and the more things you’ve accumulated, the more furniture or cars or houses or bank accounts or whatever, the more success you may have had, the more worldly things you’ve done, you’ve been here, you’ve been there, you’ve traveled, you’ve seen this, you’ve seen that, have you noticed that as that has gone on in your life, those things tend to have less and less significance? There was a time when you thought that they were the most desirable things in life and now you no longer feel that because they have not been able to deal with the real issues of life? They don’t really solve deep problems, great anxieties, hurts.
        And when trials come into your life and you reach out for all those worldly things and they make no difference, and they mean absolutely nothing, that trial is weaning you off of those things. Because it is demonstrating their utter inability to solve any problem…or to provide for you any real resource in a time of stress. We need to be weaned away.
        Philip, you know, in John 6, he comes to Jesus and he says, “Boy, how we going to get bread to feed these people?” He’s looking at things from a worldly viewpoint. “How…where we…there’s no stores around here. And there’s not enough bread anyway. We’ve got a multitude here, a massive crowd. How are we going to get food for 5,000 men plus women and children?” And so he says, “Well, Philip, you tell Me, where are we going to buy bread?” And it says in verse 6, “And this He said to test him.” He wanted to find out whether Philip looked to worldly resources. And, of course, he did. But it wasn’t any good at that point, and the Lord then created a meal and very quickly weaned Philip off the worldly things and satisfied him with the spiritual things.
        I think about Moses, you remember in chapter 11 of Hebrews verses 24 to 26? He had been raised in Pharaoh’s house. He had been brought up as a prince in Egypt. For 40 years he was educated. He was literally in line in the Pharaoh’s family for prominence. He had reached the apex of Egyptian society which was at the height of the world. All the education, all the money, all the prestige, all the honor, all the success, all the comfort was there in his hands. But he considered the reproach of Christ, the Lord’s anointed, greater riches than the treasures of Egypt. See, he had gotten his eyes off all of that and he began to be concerned about the trial of his people. And the Lord used that trial to wean him off of worldly things. Trials will do that.
        There’s a fourth, I think, purpose in trials. I think they call us to what we could an eternal hope. Trials in life, I don’t know how they work with you but they work this way with me, trials in my life tend to make me want to go to heaven. Have you noticed that? That’s what I’m saying. I don’t want to make it too difficult, it’s pretty simple. They call us to an eternal hope. Like the dear man who wrote me the letter and said she died in my arms, praise the Lord for a Savior who conquered death. All of a sudden for him, heaven is sweeter than it’s ever been. Or the little family that lost two daughters, heaven is sweeter than it’s ever been. And they have a new…what should I say?…a new disinterest in the passing world, wouldn’t you say that if you’ve lost a loved one? If the most precious people in your life and the most precious person in your life, the Lord Jesus Christ, and if the most precious possessions in your life have been laid away as treasure in heaven, you’re going to have a very very disengaged relationship with this passing world.
        So trials…trials tend to show us the bankruptcy of human resources and wean us off the world and sort of settle us on the heavenly hope. In Romans 8, among many scriptures that could be noted, we just support that thought, in Romans chapter 8 it says, “The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God, joint heirs with Christ. If so be that we suffer with Him, we may also be glorified together. And I reckon, or I count that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” As I go through suffering, Paul says, I just get more and more hungry for glory. “And I see the whole creation groaning and waiting for the hope to be realized, waiting for the glorious…verse 21…liberation of the children of God.” And then in verse 24, or 23, “We are groaning, waiting for the redemption of our body,” verse 24, “we are saved in hope.”
        So we go through trials. Trials give us a greater affection for that which is eternal. They help us long for the eternal city. They set our affections on things above. That’s a very important spiritual thing. They cause us to think on things divine, things heavenly. And that’s what Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:16, “For which cause we faint not, for though our outward man perish, the inward man is renewed day by day and our light affliction which is but for a moment works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” And then he says this, “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
        How did he get that kind of attitude? Oh, it’s very easy. Just go back to verse 8, “We’re troubled on every side. We’re perplexed. We’re persecuted. We always bear in our body the dying of Jesus Christ.” Verse 12, “Death works in us.” He’s going through so much trouble, it’s little wonder he doesn’t like the world, he’d rather be in glory. So you see, trials have a very, very helpful purpose. They test the strength of our faith. They humble us, lest we think more confidently of our spiritual strength than we should. They wean us off of worldly things. And they call us a heavenly hope.
        Fifthly, trials also serve a very important purpose because they reveal what we really love. They reveal what we really love. Could anything have been dearer to Abraham than Isaac? Anything? It’s questionable that anything could be dearer to him than Isaac…anything in this world, certainly God was dearer to him than Isaac. But that was the test, to find out–did he love Isaac more than he loved God? Or did he love God more than he loved Isaac? That’s the test. You see, trials will reveal what you really love, by how you react. You see, if you supremely love God, you’re going to say, “Thank You, God, for what You’re accomplishing through this. Help me to see that and give You glory though You’re allowing this to happen.”
        But if you really love self more than God, you’re going to say, “God, why do You do this?” And you’re going to be irate and you’re going to be upset and you’re going to be bitter and you’re going to be full of anxiety. You see, there’s a sense in which if anything is dearer to you than God, then He has to have it. He’s got to remove it. So in my own life, I just want to make sure nothing is dearer to me than the Lord because I don’t want Him to remove it…not that He always does.
        I was thinking about this and reading back in the Pentateuch a little bit. I came to Deuteronomy chapter 13, verse 3, “Thou shalt not hearken to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams.” This would be a false prophet. “For the Lord your God…look at this…tests you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Wow, the Lord is testing you to see who you really love, whether you love Him with all your heart and all your soul. In Luke 14:26, “If any man come to Me and hate not his father and mother and wife and children and brethren and sisters, yea and his own life, also, he cannot be…what?…My disciple. And whosoever doesn’t bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.”
        Now what in the world is He saying? Is He literally saying that it’s a Christian thing to hate everybody including yourself? No, what He means by that is if you do not love God to the degree that you willingly if necessary cut yourself off from father, mother, wife, children, brethren, sister, and your own life, then you don’t love God supremely. You’re not worthy to be His disciple.
        Well, what do you mean cut off? We mean by that this, that you will do the will of God first and foremost, no matter what appeals those others make to you. No matter what appeal your father might make or your mother, or your wife or your child, or your brother or your sister, or your own flesh, you will do the will of God no matter what appeals are being made because therein lies your supreme love.
        God wanted, in the case of Abraham, to let Abraham find out and all of us find out, who Abraham loved most. He said to him, “Isaac, your only son whom you love.” Abraham passed the test. Whom did Abraham love most? God. And that’s the value of the trial. Abraham found out he loved God most and everybody found out that. That’s so important to know. When you go through a trial, find out what it reveals about your love.
        There’s a sixth purpose in trials that really is very, very helpful, and that is this, trials teach us to value the blessing of God. They teach us to value the blessing of God. Reason…reason teaches us to value the world. Sense, feeling tells us to value pleasure. Faith tells us to value God’s Word, God’s Word and God’s favor, God’s blessing.
        Reason says grab what you can grab in the world and go. Sense and feeling says find pleasure at any price. Faith says obey the Word of God and be blessed. See, trials teach us the blessing of obedience. In the midst of a trial, we obey and are blessed. That’s what they are intended to teach. They show us that obedience at all costs brings the blessing of God. The psalmist says in Psalm 63:3, and this out of personal experience, “Because Thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee.” God, I have seen Your loving kindness, and it’s the best thing there is…the best thing there is.
        Jesus is the perfect example of this in Hebrews 5, in the days of His flesh, He offered up prayers, supplications, with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save Him from death. Jesus going through the trial in the garden, that’s what’s being pictured there. And He was sweating, as it were, great drops of blood, weeping and crying out to God, deliver Him. And He was heard in that He feared. And though He were a Son and a beloved one at that, yet He learned obedience by the things He suffered. And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey Him, through…watch this…through suffering, He was obedient and God exalted Him.
        Philippians 2 puts it another way, “He was humbled, took upon Him the form of a man, offered Himself in death and God highly exalted Him.”
        Trials come to put us through suffering that we may obey in the suffering and then receive the full blessing of God. And I would say that when you go through a trial, if you learn to obey God, you will experience the exhilaration of His blessing. That’s His promise.
        Let me give you two others that are purposes of suffering. Number seven, suffering comes…and this is a very, very valuable purpose…suffering comes to enable us to help others in their suffering. Sometimes when suffering comes, it may have no more purpose than to make us better able to assist others in their own suffering. I think of that in regard to the twenty-second chapter of Luke where Jesus says to Peter, “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan’s desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat.” Satan’s going to take you and shake you. “And I’ve prayed for you that your faith fail not.” Now watch this, “And when you are turned around,” when you come through that thing, He says, “strengthen your brethren.” There you go. A wonderful purpose, that’s like Jesus in Hebrews chapter 4, Hebrews chapter 2 also, who becomes a faithful merciful high priest, able to help those who come to Him because He has been through every trial we’ve been through, right? That’s what makes Him a merciful faithful high priest.

        So, we go through trials for the purpose of being able to help others. How wonderful…how wonderful that God allows us to learn by experience to instruct others.
        And then finally, the eighth, and this leads us right into the passage…we’ll have to wait a week, but eighth, trials come to develop enduring strength for greater usefulness. They come to develop enduring strength for greater usefulness. Again, Thomas Manton said, “While all things are quite and comfortable, we live by sense rather than faith. But the worth of a soldier is never known in times of peace,” end quote.
        That’s right. The worth of a soldier is never known in times of peace. God has His purpose in trial. And what it is to do is to give us greater strength. As you go through one trial, you’re spiritual muscles are exercised, you’re stronger for the next one. That means you can face a greater foe. That means you’re more useful. You go through another trial, and another trial and another trial and all those are strengthening, strengthening, strengthening until now your usefulness is on the increase, your endurance makes you more useful. And then the more useful you are, the more used you are and the more used you are, the more you accomplish in the power of the Spirit for the glory of God.
        So, let me sum it up. What is God’s purpose as He tests us? First, to test the strength of our faith that we might know where our strength is, or isn’t. Secondly, to humble us, lest we think more confidently of our spiritual strength than we should. Thirdly, to wean us away from worldly things. Fourthly, to call us to a heavenly hope so that we live in the above and not in the below. Fifthly, to reveal what we really love. Sixthly, to teach us to value the blessing of God and to appreciate it as it comes to us out of the times of suffering. Seventh, to enable us to help others in their trial, to bear one another’s burdens. And eighth, to develop enduring strength for greater usefulness so that God can thrust us into greater places of ministry and effectiveness.
        Now aren’t these all worthwhile purposes? All of these fit into the plan of God by His grace. But the question still lingers in your mind, as it does in mine…Fine, they’re going to come…let’s go back to James 1 for just a closing thought…it says they’re going to come, the testing of your faith, it’s going to come, verse 3. Verse 12, “Blessed is the man that endures the testing, after he’s tried, he’s going to be rewarded.” They’re going to come, there’s no way to avoid them.
        And we might say, “I know they’re going to come and I know all of these things are God’s purposes in them and He wants to accomplish all of this. I can buy into that. But it still doesn’t answer the question: how do I get through it in the middle of it? How do I make it through? It’s fine to have all this in place on a list in my sermon notes, how do I get through that trial?” And that’s where James 1:2 to 12 really speak to the heart.
        First of all, it takes a joyous attitude. The first means to persevering in a trial is a joyous attitude. “My brethren, count it all joy…” The second is an understanding mind, “Knowing this…” that this test is producing something. The third is a submissive will, “Let patience have its perfect work.” In other words, let it happen because God is at work. The fourth, in verses 5 to 8, is a believing heart. Ask God for what you need. And ask, verse 6 says, in…what?…in faith. You have to have a believing heart to believe that God has a purpose and that He will supply everything you need for that trial…a believing heart.
        And finally, in verses 9 to 11, a humble spirit…a humble spirit. You persevere through trials with a joyous attitude, an understanding mind, a submissive will, a believing heart and a humble spirit. Now next time we’re going to look at those final two…a believing heart and a humble spirit. I just wanted to set it up and I want you to notice, we’re going to look at some very, very exciting truth where it talks about asking of God for wisdom, where it talks about asking in faith, never wavering. It talks about a double-minded man and how that man forfeits anything from God. And then we’re going to look at that whole area of a humble spirit and what part that plays in endurance.

      I am so glad to see you are getting set free from legalisim. HW”s church is rife with it. It turns my stomach. Go your way and never look back. Grace be upon you!

  76. Emma Pegors Says:

    Wow. So much pain. Together with my Father in heaven, I am sad for all the hurt in our world. I can’t help but wonder how all the anger started that ended up leading you to be desperate, suffering people, and your families to be broken, so that you felt compelled to spend these long hours concentrating on another man. I am also wondering how many people have experienced healing by reading through this blog with its prayers and opinions. Personally, I am left feeling very sad. Notice all the letters in God’s word that start with the message of “PEACE”. Fear comes when we forget to concentrate on our heavenly Creator, Father God.

    • Scooter B Says:

      Emma we as Christians are called to rescue those falling into danger, from being bewitched by false gospels (which is what Dr Wright teaches) in order to prevent pain. Some here unfortunately have been painfully damaged from his “ministry” while other know those who have.

      It is beyond clear this site serves as a warning out of love to prevent harm, manipulation and pain from happening to others. If that is not clear to you I fear you have been brain washed into this cult which violates so many fundamental Biblical teachings.

      The focus here is on the truth of the Gospel and how it contrasts with a false teacher. This is a Biblical instruction to true believers.

      • Lily Says:

        Romans 14:10
        But you, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you despise your brother? For we shall ALL be reviewed (not condemned) at the judgment-seat (judgement in ancient Hebrew means to “Set Straight,”) of God. As it is written: I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, SO THAT EVERY KNEE SHALL BEND TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS TO GOD. Therefore each one of us shall give a reason for himself to God. Let us no more, therefore, blame one another, but rather endeavor not to place a stumbling-block before his brother.

        What was just stated above? That God will do the judging (setting straight). So placing a stumbling block before your brother, is placing your judgment, what you think is right – in front of your brother. This is not your job and you are acting as God. It is ours to spread the Good News. Is what you are doing, make others feel like they are receiving Good News. Yes, Jesus set the pharisees straight, but He is God in the flesh which give Him (with the above scripture) the right. Only He know mens hearts.

        Another scripture to ponder” Romans 11:32
        For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.

        We all fall short of the glory of God – exactly what He want us to do – so that He may show His great love and mercy on us as a gift – it is not because of anything we do right, but Him (Jesus) who died on the cross for all we do wrong – past, present, future.

        Personal testimony

        I have been in ministry most my life and lived very upright or obedient. Living this way never afforded me to understand God’s grace until I had a major sin. It was the first time I got to experience my Father in heaven as I cried out for forgiveness in which He gave fully. Does that mean I can go on and still sin….NO. But this experience created in me a personal knowing of how much I am loved BY HIM and caused me to never want to do that again.

        Only God can cause you to not sin again in such a tender wonderful way. When men try to place a stumbling block before you to cause you to not sin and you turn from it – it is filthy rags because it is not experienced through the gift, compassion, love, mercy and grace of God.

        It is where the heart lyes in each individual, not Henry. He has to answer to God for himself. But I have seen people in many churches that are not considered a cult – i.e. a baptist church I attended as a teenager – people adored the pastor and placed their heart and trust on him, their salvation (if you will). When he died, THOSE people lost their faith and walk with God because God was not who they placed their trust in. People who go to Henry for a way out of their situation or problems and who place their trust in Henry will get hurt – the one’s who don’t can get fed by whatever Henry dishes out. This is God’s plan to allow people to experience pain (dis-obedience) so that He may have mercy on them all.

        Sometimes (most times) we do not learn except through pain. God does not cause that pain and is not angry with us, we cause the pain to ourselves when we do not put Him first in our lives and even then, we are tested to strengthen our faith.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        Praise “Jesus” and “God” all you want, but if Rev. Wright preaches another “gospel” , then it is not Yahushua haMashiach nor Yahoveh Elohim Adonai that you worship.

        I have lost half of my family (two of my kids, the YOUNGER ones [ages 4 and 11]. . . and my WIFE) to this cult. My two eldest children (aged 17 and 15) chose to escape on their own, praise Yah !

        Her cult pastor supposedly YAWNED out a “demon of rejection” at one of R. Wright’s conferences, then came back to the congregation and, starting with me, . . . “you all must be delivered from the Demon of Rejection!” (everyone has it, supposedly?).

        This “PASTOR” had been PREACHING, TEACHING, LEADING, COUNSELING, MINISTERING for many years in this Jellowship . . . WITH a “Demon of Rejection” apparently possessing him! What?!

        btw, Rev. Wright is not my brother and I do not despise him, i despise his err’d, satanic teachings.

  77. Debbie P. Says:

    Well I haven’t received the book yet. Now wondering if I should just trash it when it comes.Someone has already told me to use discernment with it.
    If you could send me any information that will help. That would be great. Thankful for everyone writing.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Debbie, my suggestion is not to read this book unless you are well versed in your bible. I will send you a copy of my notes on his book “A more excellent way”.

    • ANON Says:

      Trash it. NO burn it! So no one else can read it. EGADS…I hope one day this man’s evil influence over real Christians will one day end. IF a HW zombie tries to convince you to read this book…don’t listen to them, in fact, delete them out of your cell phone and RUN in the other direction.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Anyone saying that you should “use discernment” AS you read the book, is not exercising ANY true spiritual discernment.

        “Have NOTHING to do with the deeds / works of darkness, but rather EXPOSE them!” ~Ephesians 5:11

        Do NOT read the piece of crap. My mother in law did / is . . . and she bankrolled my ex’s divorce bid against me as a result.

        THAT wasn’t enough for them: they joined forces and alleged false charges against me in order to complete the mutiny and estrange my kids from me . . . I haven’t spoken to them for 6 months now.

        Not 4 months after they forced me out of the picture, my Ex has already had my daughter examined by a psychiatrist, and is planning on getting her to a BIH workshop “for kids”.

        Nice, eh?


  78. Emma Pegors Says:

    Recalling one note above, I would like to assure anyone reading here that I have studied some of Be In Health material, and found it helpful, but that does not make me your enemy! IMO Henry Wright would be the first one to tell you that he is not infallible. Sure, I have noticed his pride issues. You would be BLIND not to! Hardly worth mentioning. Notice how Paul BRAGGED about his own humility! Come on, people, they are just men, and there are even more noticeable pride based remarks appearing on this page. Take it all with a grain of salt and let discernment lead you through the wheat and chaff. Keep what Holy Spirit reveals to you is truth and go on to bless others. Just believe Him. He tells us that ALL our knowledge will disappear leaving only faith, hope, and Love.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Thank you for your comments. My discernment, through pray, tells me to keep away from this ministry. Most of the readers of this blog have been hurt by this ministry. They read and studied the BE in Health materials as well. According to the bible, teachers of the word have a higher standard to measure up to then most of us. There are many other ministries out there that divide the word properly, that provide help and comfort without the breaking up families. I understand that no one is infallible but I don’t believe in progressive revelation – a bit like Mormonism. If my pastor misrepresented God’s word like Henry does I would leave my church and warn others as well. I can’t tell anyone what to do but encourage everyone to learn how to read and study the bible in context (not Henry’s way). Not taking verses out of context to support my own ideas and thoughts. God is sovereign and I am here to worship and serve Him. He is not my servant to try and manipulate. He wants to have a relationship with me that is not based only on what he will do for me but what he has done for me – dying for my sins. Please listen not only to the words of these bloggers but also their hearts.

      • ANON Says:

        You are right to compare this church to Mormonisim. HW incorporates some mormon qualities into his church. Much like Mormonism, women are primarily for child bearing purposes. They push the women in the congregation to have child after child with NO break…I know of more than one women who is actually ill due to this church “policy” as well as so poor they cannot pay attention, which HW knows keeps them in bondage for working for his ministry and not leaving his ministry.. Also like Mormons who hold their own book in highest esteem… the Be In Health book and the special revelations of HW are held in higher regard than the bible or JESUS, whose name I only heard in the pulpit a few times. Mostly by Donna. Who, Until recently, I felt she was not really aware or a victim of HW herself, but after hearing some recent reports…I have decided she is every bit as culpable. They are both ravenous wolves.

        I would also like to address those who went to one or two conferences and comment in support of HW.. In all reality, you do not really know the true HW. If you go to the circus, you see the shiny sparkly show. But if you WORK at the circus, you see the elephant poop on the ground.

        You have no idea what you are talking about UNLESS you have lived there. At the conferences, They show you what you are intended to see and that’s it. You wouldn’t know if what the “lifers” said was true or not so save your breath and your warnings against touching God’s prophet. (The only prophet there is spelled like this PROFIT).

        .Why are you so beguiled by this man anyway? Who can’t tell you to repent? Every guru has his schtick. That just happens to be HW’s in order to lend him biblical credibility. Why are you so easily impressed with this mantra? Repent, forgivness etc… is nothing I can’t learn from 3 minutes of reading the bible. Why do I need to go and have my ears itched with the rest of the ES (elephant poop) that this man is selling?

        You listen Because you are sick… which means you (and I) are easy prey. Wolves look for the sick, young and weak to eat alive.

        I lived there, fellowshipped there and studied there. I have friends left there so (because they can’t find another job in God forsaken Thomaston) so I still have a little insider info into this ministry and I can tell you to this day, This man has NOT repented from any of his previous teachings and is just as radical as ever and that this man (and his family who work there as his enforcers) are a pack of wolves just waiting for you to wander into their territory to devour you, your wallet and the remainder of your health and sanity.

        AND I do not know of ONE long term member who has left from there who is okay or would endorse this ministry. They struggle daily to get over this ministry. I am only thankful I got out after only 3 years, I needed much less therapy and deprogramming than my friends that were there so much longer, one of whom worked in this ministry for years and then ended up in a mental institution due to PTSD from HW..

        Also, I had a friend who got out before I did and he knew HW quite well and had moved his own family half way round the world just to be there for many years…his final words to me were, I think HW is actually insane.

        So, my final WARNING to you is this…HW is a cult leader, BIH is a cult. Stay away and repent and forgive if you need to all on your own. You don’t need HW to tell you that.

      • 123angel Says:

        Thank You so much Anon, after reading what you just wrote, it brought me even more healing, after leaving that cult over 13 years ago. I also ended up in a mental hospital wanting to commit suicide. I know now that they only taunt the demons to keep on attacking you after you leave the place. There was absolutely NO deliverance from anything that takes place there. Only mind control and draining your pocketbook. It is so very sad for the well meaning Christians that go down there to be healed. I came back devastated that I was NOT healed. I attended everything and studied my life away for nothing. Your right. Jesus was never mentioned. Without Jesus in the picture, nothing true from God can happen. I feel so sorry for those women that keep having babies for the cult, and the children being brought up in that environment. I pray for that place all of the time. I do forgive Henry, and everyone that influenced me down there. Jesus would have that no man should perish. I leave it in His hands, the best hands in the universe. God Bless you Anon and every well meaning person on here.

    • Scooter B Says:

      Emma Neither you or Henry is our enemy “Our war is not with flesh and blood” neither is the basis of our concern based on personal character issues. The underlying foundation for all warnings, concerns and responses to Dr Wrights proponents are his false teachings identified by the fact that they are in contradiction to the Bible itself because the verses he uses to build his beliefs on are taken completely out of context.

      I read the first 90 pages of A More Excellent Way and started marking verses either taken out of context completely or interpretation of verses that contradict multiple other verses in the Bible. There were literally two to three of these marked on each page in those 90 pages. The Bible never contradicts itself.

      Sure all of his followers have felt some benefit from following his teachings but that happened with Jim Jone’s and David Koresh’s followers too. Experience is not the test of God’s truth being rightly divided.

      Rest assured no man or woman is my enemy. It is my duty to challenge false interpretations just as Paul rebuked Peter for falling into the peer pressure of false teachings that promoted falling back into teaching and forcing the practice of the Law upon the Gentile converts. Peter was not Pauls enemy but rather a dear brother.

      It is not the man under scutiny but rather his distortion of God’s word to support his own beliefs.

      Emma, I know that this warning will fall on your deaf ears but I will tell you anyway just in case you are listening…HW is a wolf. He is not a brother or one who cast’s out devils in JESUS name. He is a psychological serial cult guru out for your money and your allegiance and worst of all, your soul. I attended and lived in this church for almost a decade. Please consider that someone who spent this much time on the inside may know what they speak of.

    I find this blog facinating. Those BIH members who get on and rant their undieing devotion remind me of the drug addicts that I work with. They are unwilling to admit that their lives are being affected in a negitive way. And they seem not to be able to articulate their own thoughts but are parrotting back phrases and ideas that they can cling to in order to avoid reasoning. This is a family business. Period. The Wrights live a very well monied life style – they have come across the idea that everyone looks for to make them rich. Interesting that he left his church in Jacksonville, after he broke up another mans marriage. He is a self serving fraud and the head of a money making machine. So what has becme of the idea of a lawsuit so soem of these fleeced sheep can recover the funds that they have been bliked out of?

    • 123angel Says:

      I have had that thought come to me that Henry had broken up Donna’s marriage. Something that will haunt me the rest of my life, is that when I was down in GA, Henry bought Donna’s boys a dumpy little camper, and had it parked in his front yard for the boys to live in. they had been living in the house with the rest of the family. Henry had made it clear that Jonathan and Isaiah were rowdy boys, so that is why he made them live in the camper. Another strange thing is that Henry and Donna run a marriage seminar. Donna’s son Jonathan is going through a divorce. Henry and Donna act like their cult ministry is some miraculous place to go, and get ALL of your troubles taken care of. that is such a LIE from the pits of hell ! Jesus said that we would have trials and triblutaions in this world, but be of good cheer because I, have overcome the world. How does our TRUST in the Lord ever grow when a ministry has a fix it all book or conference to take care of it all. I want God to be in control and experince that personal one on one trust and love relationship in my life. If you are involved in this cult and reading this, step back and get away from it, and get on your face and cry out to the Living God to reveal the TRUTH to you! If you are bringing children into this world, Henry and Donna are only using you to make their cult grow, and their bank account grow. God I ask that the blinders and lies given to these precious people involved in this cult be broken and set free in JESUS mighty name, the name above all names, and the only one that did it ALL on Calvary. There is NO more ! You don’t need be in health, it should be called Death to the Soul !

      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        You nailed it. In fact, cursed be “Be In Health”, and glory to “Be in CHRIST”.

        Check out Philippians 2, Hebrews 5:7,8 and elsewhere. What about 2 Corinthians 1:3-10 ???

        Suffering. Identifying. Trusting.

        “To live is Christ, to die is gain.”

    • Thomas Anderson Says:


      Great comment; you’re right on the button. In fact, MY marriage and family were destroyed by this guy (his teachings, gulped down my my ex’s cult-church, her mom and dad, and then by herself). I couldn’t stop them all by myself. I’m now fighting to even get back into my kids’ lives (successfully), and had successfully insulated them from this wicked teaching (even in my absence) through the support of close family friends and their CHURCH. My kids are essentially being protected and raised spiritually by this group of true Christians I placed around them. Praise God!

      As far as the lawsuit idea: I personally cannot spearhead anything at this time, as I’m already fighting TWO legal cases in my own personal hell (described partially above). I would, however, gladly and readily throw my weight behind anyone who COULD head-up such an effort . . . especially since it would symbiotically benefit (from) my cases. INTERESTIN’, EH?

  89. bob m Says:

    I would have to agree w/ Mark Twain: “The best cure for christianity is READING SCRIPTURE.” That is my testimony. Once I stop listening to pastors and drinking THEIR kool aid, the real story in Scripture became apparent.

  90. Phil Says:

    Oh my gosh finding this site is such a blessing to me. Three years ago I attended the conference and it caused me so much confusion, condemnation, fear, anxiety, etc…and it almost caused me to take my life because I seriously almost couldn’t take the mental anguish anymore.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      To Phil

      … and then you discovered that all you really needed was a living, dynamic revelation of Jesus Christ, His Spirit, and His Word in your heart and mind … right?

      • Phil Says:

        Well, sort of…I won’t go into extreme detail, but I will say that things got a lot worse before they got better. The confusion and anxiety led me through some extreme depressions and some manic highs when I thought I was free from the confusion. I eventually had an overload and a breakdown and was taken to a pychiatric hospital because I became delusional…seriously. I don’t know if anyone else has had this kind of aftermath, but it definitely almost ruined my life. I was 19 when I went, so I was much more naive and inexperienced; I was doing great with my faith and it just messed me up and gave me a lot of fear of evil spirits and whatnot. It’s been a slow process, but I’m doing much better now, and just taking it slow in small steps, piecing back together my faith in the REAL truth.

      • 123angel Says:

        Phil I can totally relate to you, because our experiences with bih were very much the same. I ended up in the psychiatric unit in a hospital also. I had demons tormenting me to for a very long time after going there. I was a mother of young children, and could not even be their mother for awhile because me mind and body were so much in extreme pain. I don’t care who likes it or not, bih is practicing a form of witchcraft ! It took me about 10 years to get better. that is a huge chunk of ones life to be destroyed. the person that made the comment that bih followers reminded her of the drug addicts that she works with, was 100 % correct ! The bih followers become addicted to Henry and his ministers. So many young people are living in GA and having huge families because Henry wants to make his cult grow. A true example of a cult. I feel so sorry for the Amish young people being trapped into Henry’s web of lies, they are going from one cult to another, never getting set free, or finding the truth in the gospel . We are to sound the alarm and warn everyone that will listen and pray to the living God and read His word the Holy Bible for what it truly is, not the disorted filth that Henry has turned it into !

        I empathize with you. I lost my marriage, in large part, because of BIH. 20 years with one woman, and then her choice of “church” and her parents got involved with Rev. Wrong. All hell broke loose, especially when I refused to conform and cooperate.

        I’m now in a position where I do not see nor speak to my 4 children, have no custody and no decision making influence. They all think that one of my kids is sick / twisted like me because she won’t comply unto uniformity (her determination is much like mine, similar temperaments and giftings/calling, i suppose).

        My girl and I have a deep connection, so much so that she will only say “Daddy, I love you. You get me. We understand each other!” . . . without any prompting nor prep on my part. I’m seriously alarmed for her, as I cannot protect her anymore . . . not directly. God only knows what they’re plans are for her!


        Amen, and amen.

      I’m glad you found us. I’m heartily sorry that Christians can cause such consternation in fellow Christians. Christ came to set us free not to bind us up. We are no longer under the law for all our sins past, present and future are forgiven (Romans 6). We need to let the law be our measuring stick by which we want to grow more Christ like but we need to live by the spirit. Most of us don’t really know how to divide God’s words properly so we falling into Satan’s traps. RC Sproul’s ministry (Renewing Your Mind) had a serious in October called “KNOWING THE SCRIPTURE” on how to understand the bible. It was fascinating and a great start to not being deceived by preachers who have not had proper training in hermeneutic. If you would like to know some errors in Henry’s thinking in his book “A More Excellent Way” let me know. May the Lord bless you and restore unto you his grace and peace.

    This sight is definitely filled with accusation, slander, demonic influence and filled with religious spirits!! Get some Deliverance for your lives Please!! Do you actually think the Father is pleased with this behaviour.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      OK Shawn… hypocrite. You make the accusation of foul spirits, etc…. TRUE SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT WOULD BE ABLE TO NAME THE ACTUAL SPIRITS, BY THEIR PROPER, GIVEN NAMES, NOT THE BALONEY JUNK bih SHOVES OUT (ie. “a demon of confusion” , “a demon of rejection”)…. that’s psuedo, quasi psycho babble.

      Pony up and get it right little guy. I say this in Spirit and in truth, with love. Stop roaming aimlessly, taking shots in the dark.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Shawn, It seems to me that, what you have read here, are the real life experiences that people have had. What accusations are you referring to? Can you please be specific? What statements do you think are unwarranted and have no foundational truth, that you feel Henry Wright is being slandered? I do pray that we are filled with the holy spirit but do you have an accusatory spirit as well? Saying that we have demonic influences and that we are filled with religious spirits? The Father does ask us to discern the truth. Matthew 7:15 True and False Prophets – “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious. 2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

      Are you obeying all of God’s laws and precepts? Henry’s followers appear to work hard are obeying God’s laws but
      Galatians 2:16 says: Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.” The laws showed me how short I fall from being Christ like and God’s spirit leads me to love God with all my heart. I rest in the peace knowing the all my sins, past, present and future have been forgiving me as I walk in faith with God.

      I would love to have a discourse with you but I would really appreciate it if you did not accuse us all of slander or of having demonic influences or religious spirits without showing us specifically of what you are referring to. How do we error. Speaking in generalities will not help us to understand each other.

      Some of us have been hurt very deeply by Henry’s ministries and have deep scares to show for it. Therefore the feelings expressed by some are much stronger than others. This site is a place to get information, share experiences and not just to throw out accusations at each other. I for one know that, Henry and I would imagine that most of his follower, have a poor grasp of hermeneutics. Until you truly understand the proper way to read and interpret the bible you will never understand how Henry has twisted scripture. Get a good book on proper hermeneutics – R C Sproul for one – if you want to divide God’s word with truth. Henry’s ministry only wants you to use their materials and only the King James. Other orthodox ministries support each other. There are so many orthodox pastors out there, that have so much to share with you, don’t be closed into Henry. Thanks again for you addition to the blog. May you seek truth and may it set you free.

        In response to Shawn One thing is for Sure Jesus Christ never ! never ! never! ignored His critics and never ! never ! never ! taught that you should ignore yours. or that any man of God is beyond critique, above reproof, and not accountable for their teachings. To The Body of Christ and Christ Himself!!!! In Fact Jesus was The Master/Maestro of apologetic and the exemplar of us all ! If you dare call yourself a Christian. Damon Whitsell Yes, when I was at bih, Henry would threaten us in chruch by saying if any of us go out and say bad things about him, we would be in trouble. No true man of God even has the right to say that, it is so arrrogant and high minded just like he presents himself. I am greatly looking forward to judgement day, that is when no stone will be left unturned, according to the scriptures. Henry and the whole cult will have to answer before God, just like the rest of us. It will be a great day of Victory to the people that left and sounded the alarm ! Go get your head on straight Shawn, God is watching and listeneing. I am not afraid !

  92. Phil Says:


    Wow, I can’t believe what damage this stuff has done. I thank you for your story. I felt so alone for the last few years thinking I was the only one who had an adverse reaction to the whole thing. I felt like a freak, like something was wrong with me because something didn’t set right in my heart about it all. I still struggle with that feeling especially after being hospitalized and everyone where I live thinks I’m a psycho. I’ll pray for you; I ask you to do the same for me… Things have seemed to be going pretty good for almost a year now, but somedays I feel something trying to mess with me or I’m thinking too much and worrying about slipping back into a mental funk or neurosis again.

    • 123angel Says:

      Phil you have came to the right place this time, as many people here on this blog have been seriously harmed from bih. I recently found a book at the library written by Kay Marie Porterfield called Straight Talk About Cults. It explained about what Henry had did to our minds, and answered questions that I have been wondering about for over a decade. It is an easy read, with only 140 pages. It also lists other help and resources to go and find help. I believe you would benefit from it too. I have been praying for you, and appreciate your prayers so much. Actually between 2000-2001, I was in and out of the pschyic ward so many times I lost count. I live in a small town where everyone knows you business. So I can also relate to you feeling bad about what people think about you. But, as God gradually helped me to recover, people were happy for me and amazed. I know that you will fully recover too. I also had those days when fear and anxiety crept in, and gave me a false sense that I would relapse totally again, but I NEVER did, and you won’t either. Jesus loves you and I soooo much ! Always feel free to post on here, whatever you need to say, there are loving, caring people on here, myself included. God Bless You Always and Forever ! We never go through hell in this world for nothing, because God will use us to help others from what we have been through ourselves. Hold your head up high !

    Henry Wright, seems to be attempting to open our minds to our creator that made us.
    God, has given some of us deeper insight into spiritual matters.
    No, I donot think Mr. Wright is trying to play God, he can”t As I have gone through the book A More Excellent Way, my eyes have been opened, we are spirit being, created by God,so he must know us understand our makeup. As I have gone through the book,applied the principles, I am being set free from bondages that I see in present generation and generations past.

    I am also aware that there are unseen spirit forces good and bad in this world.
    I also experienced this as a child, still inocent not understanding what I experienced. Now I understand. We are spirit, we live in a body, we have a sou,l this spirit will never die, it will live in heaven or hell. We have the power to determine where by whom we choose to follow.

    Incidently I am 64 yrs young, do not take medications, I walk in devine health, Old Authur as in ritis is not allowed in my house.

    On the job I put the young to shame, be cause I work rings around them, it all starts in the mind gettting it clean the way our Lord instructs. I have much enegy, I believe it is because I have accepted myself that God accepts me and loves me dearly.


    MY, MY, WHAT A GOOD GOD I SERVE!!!!!!!!!!

    • 123angel Says:

      The very sad thing is that you nor Henry give JESUS the full credit for what He has already done on the cross. There is no one on this earth that has all of the answers. You need to get a good book on cults, and then your eyes would be opened to the lies and deceit that Henry has put into your head. Did you know that even witches have healing meetings ? You have been healed by satan and not by God. Henry is raking in tons of money by well meaning people like us, but the real truth is Henry has done a great job on slaughtering the Holy Word of God, and turning and twisting peoples brains into thinking it is God. But, whoa unto the poor sheep being brought into this den of filfth and lies. It is very very serious what is going on in this so called ministry, which is 100 % a CULT !!! Get on your knees and repent for being involved in this cult. Ask Jesus to reveal himself to you, and take the blinders off of your eyes. It’s all about JESUS, nothing else, there is no more, and no need for more. We cannot do anything ourselves, it is all about His grace and mercy, and innocent blood shed on the cross at Calvary. You have’t found this blog by accident. Take it as a wakeup call for your very soul and salvation !

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        Thanks for your comments. I know several elderly gentelmen over 80 years who have gone though life without many servious ailments and are non believers. And on the other hand I know some awesome Christians who have gone through life with lots of pain. According to the bible “A More Excellent way” is not being in health but being in love. In the end we will all suffer death of our bodies. I found these comments submitted by michael quite right on. Suffering as a Believer
        Christian believers are not immune from suffering. In fact, sometimes it seems that sincere Christian believers suffer more than others! God has promised us many things, but He has not promised us immunity from suffering in this life. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19). “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” (2 Timothy 3:12). Suffering will be a reality for us in one form or another until Jesus returns. The issue of suffering is a complex one, since there are many kinds of suffering, many possible reasons for each kind, and often many perplexing mysteries. Our faith in the goodness of God may be tested through sufferings, and our responses to suffering in this life have the potential to make us or break us.
        How convenient it would be for us if God somehow guaranteed that we will never be severely tested in this life – that all will be sweetness, comfort and prosperity! It is a false teaching, sadly often found in charismatic circles, that says that if we are in covenant with God we will escape serious suffering – either by simply rebuking it in Jesus name or by calling upon God, our covenant partner, who will immediately come and rescue us. No, God will rescue us, but it may well be that deliverance will not come about quickly as we would like. God has his reasons for this, and the answers are generally not simple, nor can we always know them while we are suffering.
        There is sweetness, comfort and prosperity in the gospel, but there are also fiery trials, afflictions, sufferings, persecutions and rejection. Paul knew what it was to be abased, and he also knew how to abound – sometimes he had more than enough, other times he suffered need and hunger (Philippians 4:12). This was not because he lacked faith, but because he had faith. True faith takes us out of the comfort zone into areas where we enter into conflict with Satan’s kingdom and must demonstrate both patience and faith in the face of delays and difficulties. The person who has it as his goal to enjoy an easy life here and now is not following after love, but is living selfishly. God calls us to combat with a real enemy. Yes, He has given us power to overcome, but not without a fight (see teaching on spiritual warfare)….For the Christian, suffering helps us to keep our eyes on things of eternal value, to have compassion on others, to develop patience, to prove our love and loyalty towards God, and to prove to men the genuineness of our convictions and our love. It helps us to understand the heart of God better, because God suffers constantly – because He loves so much.
        Don’t just think of your own suffering, but consider the suffering of God Himself. Jesus Christ was no stranger to suffering. As God in the flesh, He was certainly willing to take some of his own medicine. He lived, suffered rejection and died a horrendous death of agony – and it was for you. Couldn’t you trust in a God like that? Henry is leading you down the wrong path. If you are not under his control then go seek the truth – what does the bible say!

      • LEE Says:

        I believe in super natural healing and do not believe in the “suffering” mandate given by the originator of this blog. But that being said…the church is a cult plain and simple and on that we can agree.

        However, I don’t believe any healing comes from BIH program at all…I believe it is brainwashing and psychology pure and simple.

        Also, I have several other ssues with this ministry that I have not seen anyone mention.
        1) The world before Adam – the fictional preadamic race wiped out by the first flood…what outrageous bull crap. I can’t believe anyone falls for this…but it supports his devil theory so he hawks that malarky all the time.
        2) His unwavering focus on the curse and devils and his rare mention of Jesus. He insists that Christians are filled with devils and he does not site the new testament when he tries to prove this theory. It seems that as far as he is concerned, there is no new covenant.
        3) His magical hold on his sheep. People are mesmerized and controlled by this man.
        4) Anytime he is complimented, he doesn’t say, God is awesome or throw or deject any praise…he takes it in and says THANK YOU. He is worshiped by his sheep and he does nothing to deflect it.
        5) The family connection inside his staff is unnatural at this ministry. It is like mafia.
        6) The requirement for women to have child after child 6) The marking of individuals that leave the church.
        7) The use and promotion of the DAKE bible. A heretical version of the bible if ever there was one.
        8) His take on the forgiveness of sins thru JESUS. To me this is the most important error there is. He believes there is NO assurance that you are going to heaven even if saved. It is a crap shoot if you can get enough iniquity out of you or enough devils out of you then maybe you will get there. Of course, that leaves his followers always needing to obtain more and therefore always needing to purchase new teaching materials.
        9) He and his wife are divorcee’s and it seems that he may have broken up the marriage of his second wife and started ministry. His wayward children…not that he is totally responsible for adult actions…but they are not just a little wayward, in his brood of children, there is a lesbian, a divorcee and a drug user and that is just all I know of. If his program is so fabulous, why are there little results in his own family.
        10) His family are a bunch of jerks…his step daughter and son in law are rude and downright mean. They run much of the church….and they come across very hateful. The son in law is also previously divorced.
        11) in the program you are considered devil influenced of possessed if you need to go to the bathroom during the teaching. You are even asked not to get up and sat down by ushers. Or if you are tired or nod off during the 10 hour teaching they think that you have devils. If you burp, fart, or have any issues, devils are expressing themselves and leaving.
        12) and this is the most outrageous one of all, on day 2, aliens were mentioned by one of the current teaching pastors.
        13) HW preached that John the Baptist had a religious spirit.

        This is the most ridiculous church I have ever attended.
        I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to attend.

      • 123angel Says:

        Thanks Lee for all of the new updates of the church. You are right, if Henry’s teachings were true and of God, then his own family would not be such a mess. His step daughter has always been rude, even back when I spent six months down there. The staff does act like the mafia. Henry does use psychology and brainwashing, and addiction methods to keep his sheep keep coming back for more poison. All I know to do is pray, as I do, that the bottom of this cult will drop out. It’s destroying families lives, all in the name of money and power.

        Christian believers are not immune from suffering. In fact, sometimes it seems that sincere Christian believers suffer more than others! God has promised us many things, but He has not promised us immunity from suffering in this life.

        While I agree substantially with your position, that “He has not promised us immunity from suffering in this life”, I find a couple of things very interesting.

        First the ENTIRE premiss of the pre-trib rapture is that christians ARE promised to be saved from ‘the wrath’ (and, sadly, that “Jews”, as a whole, will be “left behind” as punishment for rejected the Messiah)
        I reject both of those ideas (whether you or other individuals here are willing to admit to the latent anti-Semitic doctrines of “the church” is irrelevant; they DO exist.

        Secondly, read Deut 28

        BLESSED shall you be in the city, and
        BLESSED shall you be in the country.
        BLESSED shall be the fruit of your body,
        the produce of your ground and
        the increase of your herds,
        the increase of your cattle and
        the offspring of your flocks.
        BLESSED shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
        BLESSED shall you be when you come in, and
        BLESSED shall you be when you go out. YHVH will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. YHVH will command the
        BLESSINGS on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will
        BLESS you in the land which YHVH your Elohim is giving you.

        That is a mighty amazing START of the list of BLESSING and generally GOOD THINGS promised to “HIS PEOPLE”.

        BUT how? What would one have to do?
        Well, let us see what the Father himself said…

        YHVH will ESTABLISH you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you,

        IF IF IF IF
        you keep the commandments of YHVH your Elohim


        walk in His ways.

        all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of YHVH, and they shall be afraid of you. And YHVH will grant you PLENTY of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the INCREASE of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which YHVH swore to your fathers to give you. YHVH will OPEN to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to BLESS all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And YHVH will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath,

        IF IF IF IF you heed the commandments

        of YHVH your Elohim, which I command you today, and are

        careful to observe them. So you shall not turn aside from ANY of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

        Now I KNOW most people reading this will TOTALLY discount this (and most things written to left of the book of Matthew) and come up with all sorts of “sound christian doctrine” and out of context verses to support what you believe; but I prefer to hammer out an understanding of Scripture that does NOT conflict with the WORDS of the CREATOR of the universe. Silly me.

        Now, when I hear most christian doctrine, I hear the same voice that said, “Did YHVH really say that?” or “You will not surely die”.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        It is good that you make me ponder what God did say! I’m not sure if you are agreeing with Henry Wright or this is your position. There is a difference between exegesis and eisegesis when approaching Bible study. Exegesis is the exposition or explanation of a text based on a careful, objective analysis. The word exegesis literally means “to lead out of.” That means that the interpreter is led to his conclusions by following the text.

        The opposite approach to Scripture is eisegesis, which is the interpretation of a passage based on a subjective, non-analytical reading. The word eisegesis literally means “to lead into,” which means the interpreter injects his own ideas into the text, making it mean whatever he wants. This is what Henry Wright does frequently.

        Obviously, only exegesis does justice to the text. Eisegesis is a mishandling of the text and often leads to a misinterpretation. Exegesis is concerned with discovering the true meaning of the text, respecting its grammar, syntax, and setting. Eisegesis is concerned only with making a point, even at the expense of the meaning of words or it’s context.

        Henry ignores the Context – taking away from the Bible’s intent
        Deut. 11 and 28 and Ex. 15- Is the promise made by God to the nation of Israel before they went into the promised land. These passages are historical and not a covenant agreement with the church of today. We live under a new covenant.
        (1) Wright applies this to Christians today:
        (2) If you do not obey God’s law you are cursed
        (3) If you obey you are blessed
        1) We are not Israel
        2) We don’t live in the promised land
        3) We are no longer under the law – Jer 31:31

        P. 75 of “A More Excellent Way” Henry says: On the blessing side of Deuteronomy 28 not one disease is mentioned. Do you consider disease to be a blessing or a curse?

        (This is irrelevent – It matters what God says not what I consider!)

        I (Henry) consider all disease to be a curse. … It says that when there’s blessing, there’s no disease (and when there is a curse, all manner of disease is listed).

        I do not see physical ailments listed in either the blessings nor the curses.

        Again just because no diseases were listed is no indication that there were no diseases but that the nation as a whole was not struck by God with disease as God sometimes did. The bible does NOT say that “there were NO disease” as Henry says. There are more blessings than just being in health! Although I must admit I like being healthy. Henry is adding to the word of God again. The definition of a curse is not considered. In the bible a divine curse is the intentional verbal invocation of God with supernatural power and potential to cause harm. In Deuteronomy the cause was only idolatry . This so-called curse is not attached to any other kinds of sin. Who is God going to visit iniquity upon their decedents? In this passage it insinuates that God is going to punish those Jews living under the Law of Moses who practice idolatry and who hate God. No one else. I will not pass judgement on the Jews then nor now. That is not the issue. The misleading of the flock his use of eisegesis is my contention. When Henry wants to make a point is finds a verse takes it out of context to suit his needs.

        P. 85 “A More Excellent way” Proverbs 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. (What is the cause for a curse? According to Deut. 28 You had to be a Jew, an idol worshiper, a hated of God and living under the Old Covenant. ) I(Henry) went, “Hmm, what are you telling me, God?” In my understanding and in my mind, I felt God was saying this, “If you see any disease, Mr. Henry Wright, you see a curse, and if you see a curse, there is a reason for it. Did you get the point, son? As the shepherd of a flock Henry does not have the preogative to give his fanciful ideas. He needs to stay with what the bible says.

        (This does not match with what the bible says! Where does it say this in the bible? Not all suffering do we inflict on ourselves. John 9:3 Jesus answered. Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.)

  95. Mike R. Says:

    I have not read all of the comments on this blog, but to make it simple, Jesus didn’t allow His disciples to stop those who were casting out devils.

    Mar 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

    Mar 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

    Mar 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.

    I understand that I or you for that matter may not agree with everything others teach, but let’s be careful lest the Master finds need to rebuke us for our blindness.

And the Father’s Name is Yahoveh Elohim Adonai, nor did He abandon Sabbath . . . they fulfilled it in Himself, and yet we are to observe the Sabbath by grace through faith, at least on the day, if not daily, according to conscience and conviction.

        Rev. Wrong does NOT know Him, nor does he honor Him . . . on the Sabbath or any other day of the week, by that Name or by any other name.


      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        That’s the problem with the name “Jesus” these days (invented only 402 years ago). It has become a byword amongst religious and/or spiritual people, including “Christians”. Everyone and anyone can call on that name and be claiming to be a Believer. Call on His true, given, HEBREW Name and there’s no question about WHO you’re worshiping. (No, I’m not a “Sacred Namer”).

        Either way, BIH is wicked and evil, casting out nothing but yawns and burps.


    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      Mike R.,

      Good word about being careful.

      Yes, we were careful, but not careful enough early on.

      Rev. Wrong is not even a sheep, so a rebuke from THE Master Yahoshua haMashiach has not yet come (it will be severe . . . and may have already begun in the form of HEART DISEASE). In fact, no rebuke shall come unto the wolf; only wrath and judgment.



      p.s. The Master has humbled me in this, for I was remiss, casual, and permissive in regards to this BIH threat to my family. I now have no family.

  96. Roy Says:

    New video from Be In Health on up on March 4th, after a 3 month silence. The video editor guy is now “Pastor” Scott, so somthing changed there. Donna joined him on the video, but only still frame pictures of Henry Wright, who was described as healthy and robust. The 12 minute video discusses changes made to the weeklong “For My Life” program (indoctrination). They also remodeled around the book store and created a “connection” lounge for confrence attendees to go to ask questions and purchase coffee. Last, but not least, the two of them make a plea for money so that they can get new carpet in the hallways. They are asking for $7200.

    It’s hard to say what’s really going on out in Thomaston, GA. They were silent for so long and now this video announcing all sorts of changes, from personell, to facilities, to the main program they offer people. I would love to know more about what they are up to.

    • Thomas Anderson Says:

      I hope and pray that Rev. Wrong and his entourage (including his “wife”) are personally turned from being soldiers of satan, and come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ (Who is Healer without their cockamamey witchcraft).

      In the meantime, I also earnestly hope and pray that this cultic ministry is utterly destroyed, so resounding the crash and collapse would be, that everyone ever associated or inflicted with it would KNOW that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, and will not be mocked.

      New information coming out of Thomaston, Georgia…Pleasant Valley Church is attempting to sell their 39 acre camp ground/retreat center. This has long been the place people from out of town who wanted to attend the week long For My Life program (indoctrination) would stay. No idea on what price they are looking for but they are not using a realator, so I assume they are going for the big bucks. This comes right as they are about to launch their For My Life correspondence course. That’s right, you can go through this indoctrination on line and with study guides at home all for about $350. I don’t think this is a coincidence. I think something is afoot down at Be In Health. The moves they are making seem like they are trying to consolidate. They appear to be moving away from hosting events and more towards correspondence courses and video confrences. What does this really mean? I have no idea. But it is a big change and Henry is no where to be found. Anyone have any additional insights into what is really going on down there?

  97. Steve Says:

    We are more than conquers through Christ Jesus who strengthens us. If you love me you will keep my commandments. Faith, hope and love the greatest of these is love.

    Jesus said: wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Holy Spirit.

    And the veil was rent from top to bottom.

    Believer you have direct access to the throne of God! Come boldly to the throne of grace. Jesus prayed that we would be one with Him as he is with the father. It truly is all about the deepest relationship possible with the one true God through his Holy Spirit living in you.

    In his presence is fullness of Joy and at His right hand is pleasures evermore.
    Psalm 16:11

    Be in Health? Know the scriptures and the author! God is awesome!!!!!

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Through Jesus Christ we have conquered the grave! We try to keep the commandments the best we can but we still sin and that won’t totally disappear until we are in heaven with Jesus. Being a child of God, Jesus has my sins covered. 1 John 1:9 When Jesus said to wait in Jerusalem for the Promise of the Holy Spirit was he talking to his disciples? Context, context, context is very important! When we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior the holy spirit dwells within us. Yes, we do have direct access to Jesus and by knowing God’s word and spending time with him we develop a relationship with God. I love that verse. In his presence is fullness of Joy and at His right hand is pleasure evermore. Heaven awaits us. If I’m not mistaken this is a “song” written by David expressing his joy for God’s protection. At the same time, we must be reminded that David, supported by this trust, continued firm and unmoved amidst all the storms of adversity with which he was buffeted. If we are follows of Christ we too will be buffeted by life storms but we must place of faith in Jesus Christ, in him alone. For we all will suffer and die sometime but will not be conquered by it if we are in Christ Jesus.

      Yes, I too think that it is a good idea to live as healthy as we can, taking care of the home that the holy spirit is indwelling at the present time. Definitely knowing the scripture is important so that we are no swayed here and there by one new fad or another or one false teacher or another. God is awesome! I agree!

  99. strong generational differences Says:

    Can I simply just say what a relief to discover somebody who actually knows
    what they’re talking about online. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people need to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  100. bpWade Says:

    Pre-adamite world, please see Steve Quayle and/or Rob Skiba on youtube, they teach the same as Henry but they back themselves up in a very different fashion.

    Generational sins – The clearest confirmation on that would be the crowd’s reply to the Pontius Pilot when he said to the people ‘his blood be on your hands’ as he washed his hands and handed Y’shua over to them. They responded affirmatively. W/in one generation the temple was destroyed and they were in bondage.

    Staying in the room while teaching is taking place is not indoctrination, it is for your benefit. The teaching is condensed and insightful, if you leave, even for five minutes, you will miss something that could possibly make a difference in your life. You don’t have to be taught to be delivered, but it is wisdom for you to KNOW what is going on and why certain things are done.

    Keeping your eyes open during deliverance – Standard practice in deliverance. The enemy can shut you down when you close your eyes, they are actually taking care of you and assisting you by asking you to look at them while they are doing deliverance. There are many people in the room while deliverance is being done to assist those that may need it. They are not there for THEIR benefit.

    The reason the classroom guidelines are so minimal is because they USED to be detailed and explicit, the end result of this was that other people created books and ministries modeled after BIH, and at times using their materials exactly. It was theft, pure and simple. For the most part they did nothing legally about it but after a while they simply modified their classroom notes.

    As far as them speaking of Y’shua, it’s clear in Scripture that he came to mediate your relationship w/YHVH, he was never trying to take YHVH’s place. You can find that all through the gospels.

    I asked for and was sent the pages you all have as ‘evidence’ of sorts against them, and seriously? it’s really nothing that i haven’t seen before or could not put together myself.

    Thomas, as a wife who finally had to leave an abusive situation I find your story and your stance circumspect. It is quite possible that your wife is where she is because she feels safe there. That is a reflection on YOU, not BIH.

    You all need to get on facebook and check into the UNlearn page, take a deep breath and stand down. YHVH is very capable of chastising his own.

    don’t come at me guns blazing, all fired up because i don’t agree with you. Understand this, if you do, you will be acting exactly the way you are accusing them of acting. You are saying they do not tolerate dissenting opinions. If that offends you, watch your response to mine. regards

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Dear bp,

      Thank you so much for your honest view of BIH and your comment on this blog. I appreciate you taking the time to address your concerns with this blog. I would like to respond to your comments and I pray that my words will not come across like blazing bullets but with Christian concern for what I believe may be a misunderstanding on the part of your ministry. Many are ignorant on how to divide the words properly using proper hermeneutics. You may want (in secret) to take the time to learn proper hermeneutics. (NOT advised by BIH). That way you can comment with accuracy and authority as to how this blog has missed the mark. Please be specific as I have tried to be specific in responding to you. Eisegesis, as I understand it, is not an acceptable orthodox method of understand scripture. Henry is famous for eisegesis. If you are brave enough to explore the truth, please refer to this reputable site for an accurate evaluation of pre Adamite world theory. “Let’s heed Paul’s warning to Timothy about myths and endless genealogies. Let’s “speak the things which become sound doctrine.” Another orthodox site to read up on is

      As far as generational sin is concerned, if appears to me that God had already predestined the destruction of the temple in the Old Testament. Even if the crowds had not pronounced judgement on themselves the Lord would have followed through! Daniel 9:24-27 A chronological summary of Daniel 9:24-26
      1. There would be a decree to rebuild Jerusalem.
      2. Jerusalem and the Temple would be rebuilt.
      3. Then an anointed one (messiah) would be “cut off” (an idiom for “rejected” or “killed”).
      4. Then Jerusalem and the Temple would be destroyed again.
      Also chronicled by Josh McDowell (an orthodox teacher of scripture)

      In short: I find that there is no mention of generational sin in either the old or new testament. Please show me where this term occurs. In Exodus 20:4-6 KJV 4Thou shalt not make for yourself any graven images in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And shewing mercy unto a thousand (generations) of them that love me, and keep my commandments. There are conditions to a visit from God: You must be an idol worshiper, God hater AND a covenant breakers. I for one do not hate God nor Jesus my savior!

      In my understanding: If you are a Christian you don’t need to worry about any curses because:
      1. You are no longer under the curse as a child of God. Jesus took the curse (of the law of Moses) upon himself at the cross so we could be set free from the bondage of sin as we failed, when we tried to live under the law. Jesus said it was finished! Now Christians live under grace and mercy. Christ’s work on the cross is sufficient to break all curses.
      2. As a Christian, Satan and Demons can’t live inside of you
      * Our bodies are the temple of the Lord. The Lord does not share his temple with Satan!
      * Colossians 2: 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: We are already complete in Christ and the principalities and powers that dominated us before we met Christ were disarmed through the cross. The reason was that the true power they had over us, our sinfulness in respect to God’s law, was taken away. Death no longer has a hold on me!
      * Holy Spirit indwells us and is greater than the devil who is in the world…
      * There is no further deliverance needed – it is finished!
      3. Those whom God has blessed can not be cursed. We are blessed by God

      You say that we “all need to get on facebook and check into the UNlearn page, take a deep breath and stand down. YHVH is very capable of chastising his own.” I understand that Pastor Wright has had some health issues and that “Pleasant Valley Church/Being Health has announced that they were selling the Retreat Center in order to narrow our focus to ministry related activities. Is this God’s way of getting your attention? I pray that your pastor recovers fully and that you all learn to divide God’s word properly not swaying others into false teachings.

      If you would like me to address indoctrination at a later time I would be glad to give my views. My the Lord bless you and encourage you to continue to seek his truth.

      In Christian love

      • bpWade Says:

        PS: for your understanding, deliverance can only be accomplished in the name of Yahushua Ha Ma’Mahsiac.

        There is no other name by which deliverance can be accomplished. This, alone, is sufficient to prove that Y’shua lived, died and rose again.

        But he was jewish, as were those that taught his ways, who were taught by him. History proves. this.

      • Thomas Anderson Says:


        Regardless, Irreverend Wright is gravely err’d, and BIH is a cult.

        ’nuff said.


      • bp Says:

        and yet, in spite of Wright’s ‘error’ and BIH being a cult, their filing cabinets are stuffed with testimonies of people who living dead people, impotent fathers and harried mother’s who couldn’t conceive.

        Parents with dying children are now wigging out over soccer practice schedules. People who couldn’t keep jobs are now fretting over which one to accept, or, worse yet, which employee under their supervision should they promote.

        Hopeless, helpless people are now feeding others and the after shock of realizing that in health there is more responsibility healed people are teaching others how to walk in sanctification.

        so. for better or for worse, Truth wins out.

        It sux that Henry and the staff weren’t able to walk in the transparency they advocated for others but it didn’t hinder the healing of thousands of people or the fact that other countries, hospitals and ‘officials’ were struck by the sheer number of individuals that benefited in healing after they were exposed to the ‘heresies’ taught by BIH.

        any one posting here can only hope to achieve what BIH has achieved in it’s weakest moment.

        humbly submitted….

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        I should hope that BIH have their “filing cabinets stuffed with testimonies of people who are living dead people, impotent fathers and harried mother’s who couldn’t conceive” as you say. Apparently 60% of all our ailments are cured by God whether or not we trust in him, whether you are a believer or not. Don’t get me wrong, I totally believe in the power of prayer. BIH’s file cabinets should be of full of stress relieved cures. For all can find rest in the Lord. But why is there no verified healings? Where is there a list of the healed that we can contact? Give me 10 names and e-mail addresses of the faithful whose limbs God has replaced, the blind who can now see or the death for can now hear or paraplegics that can walk again. Is Henry’s ministry limited to some diseases? Can’t God cure these faithful followers? Are there no God fearing sinners forgiven by God with these ailments who God cares about that Henry can help?

        “Jesus Christ spent much of his ministry reaching out to hurting people, sometimes going way out of his way to heal them. But he didn’t heal everyone, did he? We don’t hear of him rushing around to every corner of Israel healing every last person of every physical, mental, and spiritual ailment. In fact, there was at least one time when people were lined up waiting to be healed and Jesus chose to move on to the next town instead so he could preach the Gospel there. [Mark 1:32-38] The first priority of the sick and disabled was not necessarily his first priority.

        God’s healing doesn’t follow our logic. If we look at who Jesus healed in the Bible, we find that it doesn’t always depend on the faith of the sick person. When Jesus raised the widow’s son at Nain, he did it out of compassion, not because of her faith (Luke 7:13); and when he healed a man with a withered hand he did it to make a point about healing on the Sabbath, not to respond to the man’s faith (Mt 12:10). Jesus sometimes said, “Your faith has made you well,” (Luke 18:43) but there are just as many times when it seems like the person’s faith had nothing to do with Jesus healing them. And remember the lame man at the temple gate, the one that Peter and John healed in our Gospel lesson (Acts 3:1-10)? It doesn’t seem like he had any faith in Jesus at all—he had never heard of Jesus before–he just wanted help from anyone.

        I’m not saying that faith has nothing to do with healing. Of course they are related. But that the relationship between the two is more complex than meets the eye.” (Why Doesn’t God Heal Everyone? A Sermon Preached by Jeffrey W. Gibelius)

        What about all the faithful who came to BIH in hopes of finding health and walked away in no better condition or even worse. Where are all these records or the records of all those who now question even their own salvation since if “God didn’t heal me physically, then did he even forgive me when I asked Him to take my life and forgive me of my sins (spiritual healing).”

        P. 10 Ps 103:3 (A More Excellent Way) Henry- it says the LORD not only forgives us of all our iniquities, but he heals us of all our diseases. Henry makes this connection a very strong cord.

        My question is WHEN? He forgives us immediately when we ask for forgiveness but God never says that he heals of all or diseases here on this earth. And as Henry says if I am immediately forgive why am I not healed at the very same time?

        Where is God’s sovereignty? Can’t God say not for you, just trust me? Or not now, just walk with me – without the BIH making me feel like I’m the only sinner not forgiven and healed by God? If I only had more faith, if only I prayed more earnestly or if I got rid of the 30 some blocks to healing, I’d be healed.

        The apostle Paul himself had a sickness that God refused to remove (2 Cor. 12:7-10). The wise apostle concluded, “Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong” (2 Cor. 12:10). The word “infirmities” is the Greek word “astheneia,” which is elsewhere translated “disease” (Acts 28:9) and “sickness” (Jn. 11:4). The faithful preacher Timothy was physically weak and often sick, and Paul did not offer him a perfect health program (1 Tim. 5:23) nor criticize Timothy for his “frequent illnesses”. Nor does he even suggest that Timothy’s illnesses indicate a spiritual problem such as lack of faith. Instead, Timothy is seen as a spiritual leader and a good example to all. Paul had to leave his co-worker Trophimus behind in Miletum because he was sick and God did not heal him (2 Tim. 4:20).

        What God through Jesus Christ gives us is not a guarantee of health but a relationship of hope here and now, and the here after. So as you say “Hopeless, helpless people are now feeding others”. That is exactly what we all need to do. But what are we feeding the hurting? We need people (sinners daily forgiven) who are willing to have a relationship with friends and family and to show compassion and grace and to walk along side of other hurting sinners. This may lead those who won’t by into Henry’s preachings or are not healed to the hope that is found in Jesus the Christ.

        so. As you said, “for better or for worse, Truth wins out.”

        Your statement “It sux that Henry and the staff weren’t able to walk in the transparency they advocated for others (we are all sinners in need of a savior – there is none righteous, no not one) but it didn’t hinder the healing of thousands of people (not varified) or the fact that other countries, hospitals and ‘officials’ were struck by the sheer number of individuals that benefited in healing after they were exposed to the ‘heresies’ taught by BIH.” (unsupport by emperical evidence).

        I challenge your comment “any one posting here can only hope to achieve what BIH has achieved in it’s weakest moment.” We may not have the “numbers in our files” but my hope with this blog is to give hope to those that BIH has left rejected and hopeless. God does care about those who are not cured or feel rejected. “Sometimes healing comes in powerful, miraculous, physical ways, and for this we rejoice. And sometimes, when there is no healing and there are no easy answers, in comes Jesus who whispers to us, “ it’s me.” “Rick, it’s me.” “MaryAnn, it’s me.” “I won’t remove your pain, but I’ll help you walk for as long as you’ll let me.

        In the end, God’s answer to the problem of human pain and suffering is not a philosophy but a person: Jesus of Nazareth, who walks the journey of life—including our hurts and our pain–with us. When we ask, “Why.” God answers with a “Who.”

      • Thomas Anderson Says:

        Whatever, BP. You’re an idiot.

      • bp Says:

        So, Roy, let’s just go with what i know, first hand, ok?

        There is at least one recorded incident where Henry’s prayer assisted in the lengthening of a young girls arm that had been broken along the growth plates. Her testimony is in the back of the book. I say ‘assisted because in the updated version it has HER side of the story where the Holy Spirit ministered to her and encouraged her to join her faith w/Henry’s and in doing so, when her arm seemed ‘stopped’ in the lengthening but not completed, it resumed till it was fully, functionally, the same length of the other arm.

        Casper McCloud died during a church service and Henry rebuked the spirit of death, McCloud was revived. You can find McCloud on facebook. he also has a website, i hear, you can look him up. I’m sure he will answer your questions.

        There was the lady who was dying of face cancer who took up a whole roll of paper towels as it bubbled up and slide off her face ‘like pepperoni’. I didn’t talk to her but i spoke extensively to the woman who ministered to her as it happened, she said she had never seen anything like it, it was the most humbling moment in her life, that YHVH would allow her to not only witness it but to minister to the woman as it happened.

        This healing is fully documented and i’m sure you could find it in the book. It might even be possible for you to contact the woman after all these years. I do not know.

        I have lived w/the residual of a broken back since 1993. I am not supposed to walk. I do. I limp on one side. When i showed up at PVC i was in constant pain, had no feeling in my back and was an emotional mess. I spent almost three months there.

        As i learned and accepted spirit world realities i gradually took authority over different things that were going on in my body. I was amazed at how much of what was going on actually responded when i addressed it spiritually. Muscle spasms stopped. Constant muscle pain stopped. Major limping stopped.

        I lived basically pain free until i married. It’s true. Fear opens the door to all kinds of evil. Bitterness will shut you down.

        About six months after leaving BIH i woke up one night, something was totally off, i didn’t know what it was, but something was just wrong. I laid there, in some weird state of alertness, monitoring everything, my breathing, the sounds, everything, trying to figure what was going on.

        As i rolled over i realized what it was.

        I could feel the sheets on my back. This was in 2001? 2002? I had not had feeling in my back since i broke it in 1993. YHVH healed that, at his pleasure, that evening. I had been told to not expect for it to ever come back. You don’t know odd until you have lived w/out sensation or feeling of any kind in any part of your body.

        While i was in Thomaston I hit a fawn. Smacked him good w/a car going to fast, i watched him, in slow motion, come up over my hood, slide over the top of my car and fall off the other side.

        He was so tiny, so helpless.

        I whipped my car around and went back to him, in tears. He was laying there, in shock, no doubt, breathing but not moving. Looking at me with his huge dark eyes. I was hysterically praying, asking YHVH to mend him, heal him, please. I remember pleading with him, “You created him, you know where everything goes, please heal him, I know you can do it….PLEASE HEAL HIM!”

        Another car had pulled up and a woman ran over to me. Turns out she was a vet tech. She did some kind of examination and told me that the fawn’s back was broken and that he had obvious internal injuries, he would not recover. A guy had walked over from across the street and he conferred w/the woman who asked him if he had a gun to put the little guy out of his misery.

        I was totally freaked out. The woman picked up the baby and carried him over to a shady place and the man walked back to his home to get the gun. I was crying and praying and pleading. I ran over to the woman and the fawn, a total mess.

        I cried out “GOD CAN HEAL HIM I KNOW IT!” the woman looked at me in pity. The fawn was just laying there.

        All the sudden the fawn pulled his head up off the ground, whipped it around and looked straight into my eyes. The woman sat back on her heels, the guy came out of door of his house across the street and was heading over to us.

        Neither the woman or I spoke.

        The fawn pulled his legs up under himself, looking at me the whole time, and then stood up.

        The guy was getting closer. With the gun.

        The fawn stood up, looked away from me and ever so gracefully loped off across the grass, across the driveway, across the lawn, stopped, look back at me and then loped off.

        The woman stared at him as he ran off. The guy with the gun stared at him as he walked up. I stared at him as he disappeared.

        The woman said ‘now he’ll just die in the woods somewhere” I said “No. God has healed him. He will live a long life.” The woman and the man had nothing to say. I got in my car and drove off.

        I told my story that night at the open mike that PVC has at church services. Everyone clapped and there was a line of people rehashing stories of animals they had prayed for.

        I had no proof of what happened. Just the story.

        Six months later i had a couple of people call/email me and tell me a woman had come to a church service. At the open mike invitation she came forward and said she was from a baptist church in town and she had a story to tell. She told the story of stopping behind a car w/california license plates on it after the driver of the car had hit a fawn, how the crazy woman had prayed and commanded healing on the fawn that she KNEW was as good as dead.

        How that fawn had suddenly stood up, looked around and scrambled away. How she had thought about that incident so often till she finally just had to come to this church and see what they taught.

        Because there was no way that fawn should have been able to lift his head, let alone get up and run off.

        And the church people knew the story.

        You have my email. You may email me. I will confirm this incident.

        I will also confirm how, a good ten years after i attended BIH and at a moment of intense darkness I prayed and asked YHVH about a physical situation I had been praying about for years and not had any any relief in. I asked if there was anything more to work on, please show me, and if not, please heal this for me.

        I woke up the next morning that the issue was gone. It hasn’t returned. You may also contact me about this, i will confirm. and i will confirm it took that long for the healing to complete.

        I will also confirm my oldest spiritual granbaby (i lead his mother to Y’shua) who, in utero it was discovered (via 3D ultrasound) that he was going to be born w/a cleft palate so severe that his whole lower face and sinus area was basically gone. It hadn’t developed.

        His mother was distraught but resolute if this was what YHVH had brought to her, she would accept him and love him. She had a 3D ultra sound done two weeks prior to birth so she could look at his face, get used to it and be ready for him when she delivered.

        She had purchased specialized feeding equipment that would cover his face and create suction for him so he could nurse/eat. It had been very expensive, but she considered herself blessed to have been able to find it the best price available.

        I sent the information to Henry and asked if he would pray for her and for the baby. We were all praying, but I asked Henry, specifically, to pray for healing. I felt if anyone knew what to pray, he would, and i believed he would get results.

        This is NOT idol worship, this is a nod to Henry’s anointing. He is anointed in this area, or was. I do not know where he is on anything, at this time.

        In any event, I got an email on christmas day, 2006, from the baby’s mother. The baby had been born.

        He had a hairline hairlip that was going to be surgically corrected in six months. She was, basically, in shock. She had the 3D pictures to lay next to her baby, that had been taken not even two weeks prior, reflecting a gapping hole where his mouth should have been.

        He was born with a properly formed nose, sinus cavity, roof of his mouth, and a mouth. He was all but perfect.

        To his mother he WAS perfect.

        You have no idea what it is to walk in the confidence that you can pray and your prayers will be met.

        I’m sorry about that. Truly. Sorry.

        In these last days, even the elect would be deceived if it were possible. Having spent six months at BIH, God has CLEARLY shown me that any so called miracles or prayers answered from that cult, are either satan’s healings, or in a few cases the person’s own faith, by God’s great grace and mercy. The teachings are extremely poisoneous to the soul and mind. Brainwashing used in the most wicked of ways. Even satanists have their own healing meetings, the way Henry operates in his own cultic style. yet in theBook of Revelation it warns those who add or take away from it, will end up in hell for all of eternity ! You have been warned ! Seek the Holy Spirit for all you are worth, and ask him to show you the TRUE way, truth and life, His son Jesus Christ. There is no more, and doesn’t need to be, Jesus did it all on the cross !

        Praise the Lord for the healing that you have listed. It sounds to me like you are counting on Henry to get God’s hand of healing to work. This is one place I would never go. Henry himself is having health issues. Why? You still have not address my request. Give me 10 names and e-mail addresses of the faithful whose limbs God has replaced, the blind who can now see or the deaf who can now hear or paraplegics that can walk again. Is Henry’s ministry limited to some diseases? Can’t God cure these faithful followers? Are there no God fearing sinners forgiven by God with these ailments who God cares about that Henry can help? I’m sure there are but I’m not sure that Henry has these names in His files.

        Healing isn’t the only concern with Henry. GOD does heal but not always when and where I or you want. The issue still lies in the fact Henry is changing God’s words by his poor Hermeneutic skill and deceiving others as well.

    • Roy Says:

      The pre-Adamite theory, or Gap theory, has been proven wrong over and over again. Henry lifts this “theory” right from the Dake Bible. Considering the heresy contained in the Dake Bible, I am concerned about what else Henry takes from the Dake.

      After doing alot of research and reading many passages in the Bible, I have come to the conclusion that this “understanding” or concept of Generational Sins is not biblical. Wrightiswrong has sufficiently explained this in multiple posts here and no one has ever countered any of his points.

      The points about the classroom training are probably true. What I find amusing is how the whole program HAD to be simplified so that other ministries wouldn’t replicate it and cost BIH money. Here the “truth” about BIH is revealed I think. This is all about money. Henry claims “special revelation” from God about scripture then charges (large amounts) of money to people to find out about it. When other churches or ministries try the same thing without paying BIH, then that’s a problem. This is NOT the message of the Bible. We are to freely give as we have been given.

      God is capable of chastising his own. No doubt. Of course, this is NOT what BIH teaches. At BIH, you are clearly taught that only good things come from God. Nothing bad can come from God. Thus, all bad things, including all disease, comes from Satan and his demons. Again, as most can figure out from a basic understanding of the Bible, God does chastise his own. As near as I can tell, most of BIH’s error in this area comes from an entirely incorrect interpretation of the Book of Job.

      So, sorry, I think Bible beliving Christians should carefully compare teachings to scripture (as Henry even says). When you do, most of what BIH is advocating is not biblical and can even be harmful to uninformed Christians.

      • bpWade Says:

        So what is your deal, Roy? Are you so anti henry, PVC and BIH that you are unable to accept that they teach Truth on ANY level?

        if i took the time to respond to your generational sins tirades, would you be able to actually receive it? Because, honestly? I’m so totally sure that the concept is solid that i don’t care what you or anyone has to say about (read: i didn’t bother to waste my time reading your OPINION!). I have no issue with responding to your stated thoughts, i just really don’t want to waste my time in a useless exchange. No offense.

        I tend to live with the conviction that what you believe is none of my business. It’s between you and YHVH. But i’m willing to go there, if for no other reason then it will serve to help me clarify my stance for myself.

        Re: gap theory.

        You didn’t look at the research tips i gave you, did you. Because the gap theory has only been ‘successfully refuted’ by the organized church leaders. And you are seriously behind the times by following what you are comfortable with.

        Scripture says the rocks will cry out the truth, Roy. and in this case, strictly speaking, they do.

        Re: BIH teachings.

        Please. I witnessed the complete lifting of a rough draft of a book that BIH had compiled. In its entirety. By a ‘friend’ ministry. They printed it in their name, changing little to nothing, and in doing so sold another man’s research as their own. I’m sure this is not an isolated case.

        It would be the continual siphoning off years of research and work, the cumulative work of nameless volunteers and the stories of victories of people who came through the ministry that over time caused BIH to pull back and re-evaluate how they handled their materials. As a quasi writer myself, I totally get the desire to protect my ‘intellectual property’ as i have been faced with others taking my ideas, in their entirety, as well, and making money off of it. It isn’t pleasant.

        You know who else has spent a life time presenting someone else’s work as their own, don’t you. Satan. Think about it. He has no original anything, so any time he presents something to anyone, he’s actually lifted a good idea/thing from YHVH, corrupted it, and then ‘sold’ it to someone as worthy.

        It’s wrong no matter who does it and i don’t find it wrong for BIH to take step to protect themselves, actually. “Freely given, freely give” is a great theory, but in this case it’s not entirely true, is it. Blood, sweat, tears and time is not ‘free’. Ask any vet. and understand, this is war, is it not?

        Re: Dake

        Yeah. I no like dake either. When i got into it i was pretty shocked he was presented by BIH. But please, before you go slamming others for the heresies THEY adhere to, let me ask you where you stand on:

        Valentine’s day
        (or any other ‘normal’ catholic holiday, for that matter)

        Do you keep the Sabbath, or is Sunday good enough for you.

        I’m thinking you consider yourself a good christian and your walk is the normal ‘catholic lite’, hence you have a few pet heresies yourself.

        Re: Chastising

        Basic. In any area of life that you are not walking in sanctification you have put yourself out of the covering of YHVH and you have placed yourself under the covering of the enemy. Just as YHVH has ‘blessings’ we receive under HIS covering, so does the enemy. But his ‘blessings’ are more aptly referred to as ‘curses’.

        It’s an amazing slight of hand the enemy has managed to pull of, getting humans to blame YHVH for evil when in fact it was the natural consequences of their walking away from his Torah.

        That’s one aspect of it. The other would be, as you pointed out, Job. The enemy’s statement that Job would serve as long as life was good should be something for us all to consider. YHVH isn’t our sugar daddy, is he?

        Judgement has come to this land. It is clearly written it will start in the churches and those that have mistreated YHVH’s people will be those that stand for it first. The only thing that will clear the ledgers would be their unmitigated, probably public repentance.

        I agree that many people were wronged behind the scenes (and some not so behind the scenes) and this is being dealt with. So i guess the question might be do we regale in the seemingly obvious destruction of a ministry that has really helped hundred, perhaps thousands of individuals?

        Or do we unite in prayer that better choices are made and that situations are rectified in ways that YHVH’s word is glorified.

        I appreciate the exchange. I’ve been pretty much brutalized by life (and some of it via PVC participants, actually) and this exchange is helping me clarify what it is, exactly, that i believe and stand for. I thank you.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        I would be interested on your take of generational sin or curses. Please support your point of view with verses from the bible.

        RE: Chastening
        I’m not sure that your point of view agrees with what the bible says. God can chasten those he loves! Hebrews 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
        Proverbs 3:11 -12 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.” Proper discipline is a proof of love. Sometimes, the chastening of the Lord can be physical illness or even death as in the correcting an abuse of the Lord’s supper.
        1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
        Check out for an excellent explanation of chastening.
        I would be glad to entertain you opinion if you can site your point using bible verses as your source.

You must realize that even satanists and wiccans have healing meetings and healing powers. They have their books of spells they conjur up. The only way to get delivered from this cult is to cry out to the Holy Spirit for deliverance. Their is a personal cult deprogramer for BIH on this site, that can help you.

        Here are my primary thoughts on a Sabbath day: “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
        Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” Colossians 2:16-17.

        I have a sense that there is a level of law keeping within Be In Health and Pleasant Valley Church. Yet we are told “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” Colossians 13-15.

      • bpWade Says:

        Re: Your reference to Colossians 2:16 -17

        I’m taking my time responding for a couple of different reasons. Number one I want to be thoughtful, concise and clear. Number 2 I’m in finals in school and they are my first priority.

        In response to your continual emphasis on the website ‘got questions’, please understand that i do not find that website useful. I find his his educational background slanted, his perspective biased and the his view of Scriptures to be, truly, ‘through a glass darkly’.


        I read Scripture via the Hebrew mindset. I’ve gone to great lengths to suss out and focus on teachers that are grounded in Torah and teach the WHOLE Scripture, via a hebraic lens.

        Y’shua was hebrew. He lived a kosher lifestyle, the ‘xtians’ of the day were considered a jewish sect, in fact, up to a certain point they were ALL jewish, hence they never wavered from the Torah or it’s laws.

        Y’shua railed, literally, against the rabbinical leadership of the day and the ‘laws’ he came against were the ones that the church leaders inflicted on YHVH’s people. Whenever the later Scriptures reflected a break from ‘the law’, that is what they are referencing. NOT, as you have been taught and now agree with, the ‘Old Testament’ or “Torah”.

        Torah simply means “Teaching and Instructions for life”. For LIFE.

        So. I evaluated every teacher and every conversation concerning Scriptures on this foundation. It is my starting point for accepting or rejecting a stance. Your guy is thoroughly saturated with a perspective that i will never accept. His website is very impressive and well put together. He seems to have a sincere heart and desire to serve.

        But he has little to nothing to offer me.

        I have a few website YOU may find interesting, but only if you are willing to step out of your comfort zone of common ‘christianity’ and look at things from a different perspective.

        They are:

        Now. you don’t have like or agree w/any of the teachings or information you find on these websites. Your faith is not my business. I will not stand accountable to you for MY beliefs and YOU will not stand accountable to ME.

        I’m just offering these to you as a way of your being familiar w/how i believe. We are going to read the same Scripture, focus on the SAME verses and come up with diametrically opposed conclusions.

        I’m ok with you not agreeing with my conclusions.

        I don’t care that you think i’m a lost fool. It’s really not about what you think, in the end, for my life.

        I’m just trying to lay the ground work for further interaction.

        And, for the record, i don’t believe i need to be ‘deprogrammed’ from PVC. I totally benefitted from my interaction with them, they have simply THE best beginner teachings for anyone wanting to live a truly sanctified life style.

        They just have some major hangups, as you know, behind the scenes. and yes, i’ve been burnt severely by them. and it hurt. it hurts. but they tendency to justify being jerks doesn’t erase what i learned from them.

      • bpWade Says:

        This brings me to your Colassions verse. I didn’t know how i could succinctly respond to your take on it, but Skip Moen does a beautiful job, so i submit it to you, here, in full:

        Therefore, let no one act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or Sabbath days Colossians 2:16

        Reading Backwards

        No One – Every letter Paul wrote fits into the cultural context of the audience he addressed. The first principle of biblical interpretation is to determine that cultural context. Unless we know what the original audience understood, we are almost certainly going to read the text from our own cultural perspective, and that can cause all kinds of problems. This verse is a classic example of reading the message as if it were written yesterday, not two thousand years ago to a particular body of believers who were struggling with issues in a city in Turkey.

        What do we know about these believers? Well, we know they were followers of YHWH. We know that they had a good grip on the Scriptures (what we call the Old Testament). We know that there were Gentile proselytes in this group. We know that they believed Jesus was the Messiah. And we know that there were those in the city who accused them of religious fanaticism. With just this much in mind, let’s try reading this verse again.

        Paul tells the disciples in Colossae to allow no one (Greek: me tis humas) to act as judge. The construction is important. The first word (me) is a Greek word for the conditional no. This is not ou, a word that also means no but is without conditions. Me would be used in a sentence like “I might not make it for lunch.” Ou would be used in “I will not break the commandment.” So, Paul is telling his readers not to let something happen as a matter of the present circumstances. In other words, do not let the circumstances of your situation cause you to be judged.

        Who would do such judging? Well, Paul uses the Greek tis humas. This is literally “someone or anyone (second person personal pronoun).” Ah, this means someone you know. Not simply an external acquaintance or third party, this is someone familiar to you. Don’t let anyone who has a familiar relationship to you become your judge.

        OK, judge over what? Well, now we see the real concern. Everything that Paul lists here is a part of Torah obedience. What you eat and drink, what festivals you celebrate, what calendar you follow (the Jewish calendar is lunar, not solar) and keeping Sabbath are all found in God’s instruction book of life. Paul tells his readers in this pagan city, “Don’t let anyone you know stand in judgment over you with regard to keeping these instructions.”

        Uh, that’s not the way we read this verse today, is it? We read it backwards. Instead of seeing that Paul is defending believers for keeping Torah, we side with the pagans and claim that Paul is advocating on behalf of those who want to push Torah-obedience out of the picture. That would have been impossible from Paul’s perspective. He was Torah-observant all his life. He says so on numerous occasions. He even fulfills a vow ritual proclaiming his endorsement of Torah. Why would he side with the ones who want to argue that Torah observance doesn’t matter? No, we read this verse from the pagan perspective. We are the accusers, not the defenders. Paul might as well include us in the “no one” category for we are the ones judging those who keep the Torah.

        Maybe it’s time to read this verse in the right direction.

      • Roy Says:


        I think you are correct in one regard. We are not going to be able to agree on these points. You have “tipped your hand” a bit by refrencing Skip Moen, a supporter of the Hebrew Roots Movement. Between him and your stated “Hebrew mindset,” I don’t see where we have much common ground. Anyone who could interpret Collosians the way you and Skip Moen do, is not going to find much common ground with me or any Christians I know (or read).

        To interpret Paul as advocating for observance of Mosaic Law in Collosians, flies in the face of all the rest of Paul’s writing and his mission to Gentiles. You are not only taking the verse out of context of the book, you are taking it out of context of the entire New Testament.

        Your handling of the Word is similar to Henry’s handling of it. So it is no surprise, I guess, that you would support the Be In Health ministry. Though I have always considered BIH a bit too leaglistic, I never thought they were drifting into the “Hebrew Roots” territory. Until now, perhaps.

        I highly recommend the book of Galatians from the Bible. It has great knowledge for all of us. For example: “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:10-14.

      • bpWade Says:

        I did not ‘tip my hand’, as you say. I laid it out for you because i do not believe in running a ‘con’ on any level.

        And please do not ascribe a belief system on PVC out of our conversation. The two are in no way related; neither I nor my conversation reflects anything close to whatever PVC doctrine is.


        Paul was Jewish. He references that fact as well as used it as a touchstone for his teachings numerous times. He kept kosher, and referenced THAT fact numerous times.

        I don’t even know how to respond to your horror at considering the hebrew history (roots) of christianity. Seriously

        We are to be adopted, grafted into the faith. What faith? Hebrew/jewish faith. window dressing and tap dancing around how we will make that faith fit our current, culturally soaked version of that faith will NOT take away it’s true beginnings. It’s gene pool.

        It’s hebrew roots.

        I believe christianity to be the biggest fraud, the largest cult and the most amazing slight of hand going in the world today. May i suggest the book Sons of Zadok to you, with the accompanying work book by Dr. C. W. Oliver.

        IF you can read it and understand it, there may be hope for you yet. 🙂

        so. whatever. be happy. life as we know it is no more, in any event. may the faith that you have now see you through the times to come.

  101. Roy Says:

    I still receive weekly e-mails from Be In Health. This week they started a new series of excepts from Henry’s book on Fear. I would like to start a discussion on these excepts, as I feel there will be points of error that need to be made clear.

    As always, Henry start out quoting 2 Timothy 1:7 which states that God has not given us a spirit of fear. Within a few sentencse Henry has taken that verse and created a Principality called The Spirit of Fear. He states that there are OVER FOUR THOUSAND different types of fear (+4,000), like Fear of Tomorrow, or Fear of Failure. I would like to see the entire list of 4,000…I mean why stop at 4,000 there must be more than that, right? Anyway, he then states that AT LEAST 50-70% of all disease is caused by Fear In “A More Excellent Way” he states that 80-100% of all disease is spiritually based. So, according to Henry, only 10-30% off all disease is caused by something other than Fear. I am glad this finally came out as I used to find it funny that every time you asked Be In Health for the spirtiual root of a disease it came back with “Fear of …..” Everything was caused by Fear. I wonder why Henry doesn’t just focus on Fear. I mean, by his own adimission, it is the cause of pretty much every disease out there.

    He goes on for a couple of paragraphs before he quotes Hebrews 4:12. He uses that verse to explain that the Word of God (Jesus) has come to seperate your soul from your spirit becuase you have become one spiritually with something not from God. Now I looked up that verse and looked at it in context and from what I can tell, Henry is pulling that verse out of context a bit. What Paul is getting at in that chapter is that the Hebrews who have found Christ can take up rest in Him (and stop worring about works). In that context the verse Henry uses seems to be saying that The Word pierces to the depths of soul and spirit, examining the motivations behind man’s actions and laying them bare to both God and man himself.

    I suppose that verse could be used to support Henry’s position in some way, but it would take a lot more explanation to do so. Henry explains nothing about the context of the verse and makes up out of whole cloth the part about Jesus seperating your spirit from your soul becuase somthing has attached to your spirit.

    Near the end of the e-mail, Henry states, “If God gets involved in your life, He is going to honor His Word to the degree YOU honor His Word.” I am not sure what he exactly means (since he doesn’t explain himself), but it set off some red flag in my head. I once heard a Word Faith preacher say “The degree of your healing is equal to the degree of your faith.” Sounds earily similar and the later is NOT Biblical. I would like to hear some discussion on Henry’s statement and how it is, or is not, similar to the Word Faith statement.

    I am sure I’ll get another e-mail next week…I’ll post more then.

    Here is an interesting post I saw on Facebook that might have some application towards Henry and Be In Health. From the Berean Call, September 20th, Apples of Gold:

    “We are to trust the Scriptures above the pronouncement of any man or woman. In addition, the fact that someone quotes Scripture does not validate their ministry. It has been often pointed out that during the temptation in the wilderness, Satan quoated Scripture to the Lord (Mathew 4; Luke 4). One can point to several cults whose founders began receiveing prophecies at a very early age. According to 1 Conrinthians 14:3, the New Testament prophet “speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.” We certain can use this kind of prophecy.

    Not much activity here in a few months…in the meantime, Be In Health continues to change its mode of operation. The For Your Life indoctrination confrence used to be held 2-4 times a month. Now it’s only offered once a month. Their “out of town” schedule continues to decline year over year. Compare the number of out of town confrences they ray in say 2010 to 2013 or 2014. The drop off is noticeable. Also of interest…no video updates or any news update in over a year. Yet, they are offering a Singles Confrence and have moved their Marriage Confrence from Fall to Summer. Seems like they would have plenty to talk about, but they have offered up no new updates in over a year. Is this ministry withering on the vine? Or is it building up for more? They launched a new web site, “I am Changed,” which doesn’t provide any new content beyond the same unverifiable testimonies found in “A More Excellent Way.” Just not sure what’s going on out there.

    I’m sure this is certainly one of the such a lot vital information in my opinion. And i am happy looking at your content. Even so ought to feedback in few typical concerns, Your website design is best, the actual articles or blog posts is excellent : Debbie. Excellent process, best wishes

  106. Lisa Schulaner Says:

    I haven’t read all the comments here but I can tell you from personal experience that Pastor Henry’s book “A More Excellent Way” has lead to my healing and the healing of many others I know. Even medical science is starting to see the connection between emotional issues / beliefs and physical health. The book was so right on for me and everyone I showed it to. Using the info in the book I myself let people through prayer in the area that the book identifies as the root cause and seen miraculous healing.

    And on the issue of casting out demons, Jesus was not the only one that did it. His disciples followed in his footsteps.Before and after his death. It’s all right there in the Bible. It’s even part of the great commission.

    Being tormented by a demon does not mean that you have lost your salvation. It just means that you are believing a lie somewhere that the demon has told you. That lie lets in a demon. That lie is the demon. I wish all demons left us when we got saved but that’s just not reality. Any thing will stay as long as you let it. Find the lie and the truth will set you free. It’s a process.

    For those wondering if this book and teaching is for them, try it. Let the fruit be your evidence. Take Jesus’ advice and judge it for yourself by the fruit. You have the same Holy Spirit as the rest of us. He will talk to you. Trust Him to reveal the truth to you.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Don’t play with fire! The truth about demon. Casting out demons, as a common occurence, was for the Apostolic era only.
      1. No one in the Old Testament ever exhibited that power, not a prophet, not a priest, not anybody.
      2. The Messiah had to demonstrate not only power over disease, and power over nature, but He had to demonstrate power over Satan and demons and as many were claiming to be the Messiah
      * John 2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
      * John 2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
      * John 3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
      * John 6:2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
      * John 7:31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
      * Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
      3. Jesus never cast a demon out of a believer
      4. Jesus gave the power to cast out demon to his 12 apostles and 70 believers only.
      * Mark 3:14-1614And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, 15And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
      * Mark 6:12-14 KJV 7And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; 12And they went out, and preached that men should repent. 13And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
      * Mark 16:17 14Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
      * Luke 10:1 After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
      * Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name
      5. This power set Jesus’ apostles and the 70 founders of the faith apart as the preachers of the truth verifying that they were the true representatives of the true Messiah.
      * Acts 8:6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
      * Acts 15:12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.
      6. Once the church was set up there was no need for verifying the true Messiah by casting out demons. Now we are to choose
      * 1 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
      * Hebrews 2:4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
      7. Christ wanted follower who believe in faith and not miracles
      * John 12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
      * 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 KJV 6Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
      * John 6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

      8. No where in the Bible are believers given the power to talk to or cast out demons.
      9. No where are believer instructed or told how to cast out demons
      Also, how do you explain where Jesus says that we will cast out demons?
      Where do you read that? If you are referring to Mark 16:9-20, then read the disclaimer that precedes it: “The earliest manuscripts and some other ancient witnesses do not have Mark 16:9-20.” Which is another way of saying that these verses are not considered inspired scripture, and thus should not be used to build doctrines or to even preach on by themselves, since they are considered unreliable and were most likely added to the scriptures by some scribe.
      The following is a quote from the notes found in The MacArthur Study Bible, copyright 1997 Word Publishing, Nashville, TN:
      “Mark 16:9–20 The external evidence strongly suggests these verses were not originally part of Mark’s gospel. While the majority of Gr. manuscripts contain these verses, the earliest and most reliable do not. A shorter ending also existed, but it is not included in the text. Further, some that include the passage note that it was missing from older Gr. manuscripts, while others have scribal marks indicating the passage was considered spurious. The fourth-century church fathers Eusebius and Jerome noted that almost all Gr. manuscripts available to them lacked vv. 9–20. The internal evidence from this passage also weighs heavily against Mark’s authorship. The transition between vv. 8 and 9 is abrupt and awkward. The Gr. particle translated “now” that begins v. 9 implies continuity with the preceding narrative. What follows, however, does not continue the story of the women referred to in v. 8, but describes Christ’s appearance to Mary Magdalene (cf. John 20:11–18). The masculine participle in v. 9 expects “he” as its antecedent, yet the subject of v. 8 is the women. Although she had just been mentioned 3 times (v. 1; 15:40, 47), v. 9 introduces Mary Magdalene as if for the first time. Further, if Mark wrote v. 9, it is strange that he would only now note that Jesus had cast 7 demons out of her. The angel spoke of Jesus’ appearing to His followers in Galilee, yet the appearances described in vv. 9–20 are all in the Jerusalem area. Finally, the presence in these verses of a significant number of Gr. words used nowhere else in Mark argues that Mark did not write them. Verses 9–20 represent an early (they were known to the second-century fathers Irenaeus, Tatian, and, possibly, Justin Martyr) attempt to complete Mark’s gospel. While for the most part summarizing truths taught elsewhere in Scripture, vv. 9–20 should always be compared with the rest of Scripture, and no doctrines should be formulated based solely on them. Since, in spite of all these considerations of the likely unreliability of this section, it is possible to be wrong on the issue, and thus, it is good to consider the meaning of this passage and leave it in the text, just as with John 7:53–8:11.”

      2 Corinthians 10:3-5 or though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
      5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. It is an ideological war. It is a war engaged between the truth and error, and if I want to free men from the bondage of Satan’s lies then I have to bring the truth to their minds. Demons may cause physical and spiritual problems. To master evil spirit, Satan or demons:

      James 4:7 – Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
      1 Peter 5:8 – Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
      John 4:4 – You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
      Revelation 20:1-2 – I saw an angel coming down out of heaven…he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

      Matthew 7:21-22
      Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    • Mike Says:

      Lisa, I beleive you are right when you say that one should examine the fruit of this ministry. I do think that there is some truth in what me Wright says. But I also have seen some utterly false stuff mixed in and that is where the danger lies. The fruit that I have seen from this ministry is false doctrine. Here are some of those false teachings that Jesus lost his divine attributes when He was manifest in the flesh, that man is born good, that sin is a being, that most disease is cause by sin, that you have to keep following the steps outlined for freedom in wrights book or you might not make it to heaven. (That last one is particularly dangerous and no I am not assuming this, this comes from the lips of a person in that group). I can just see the devil having a field day with a Christian who is dying of cancer or some other illness. They will think they are in sin and that if they don’t get healed they must not have repented and will therefore go to hell. That is my biggest concern. People from this movement have also been less then helpful by blaming people
      For tragedies in their lives (stating that obviously they must have sinned or that would not have happened). Yes people that hold to wrights teachings have done this. There is tones for heretical teaching coming from that man that seems to even touch on te doctrine of salvation. That is grounds to avoid it all together

    Hello everyone,

    My father and I are about to lose everything because of my mother’s attendance of this church (cult). I fear that she has gotten herself involved way too deeply into HWs teachings and it has cost her her whole family.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      A more excellent way: LOVE. court her like you have never done before with love you have through Jesus Christ. Jesus still works miracles. Love her like you did when you first started dating – dad.
      Pray consistently! DON’T ARGUE – get to know where Henry twists scripture. Then only ask questions for clarification so you can get her to think about what God’s word really says. It may be a long process, years and years. Don’t give up! Know that God is faith.

      The problem really is that we don’t really know the scriptures ourselves therefore we fall for false teaching. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15.

    Thank you for this blog. It will prove helpful in my attempt to talk a friend into canceling his attendance at an upcoming conference. One verse I find helpful in regard to generational curses is 2 corinthians 5:17: therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creation. Old things are passed away, behold! All things are become new. We must be careful to remember that we live post Pentecost and not back in the days before the Holy Spirit indwelt believers. That is a big difference! When the Lord sets us free he sets us free indeed!

  112. mark Says:

    I’ve read several dozen replies on this blog about pastor henry and I’m left feeling a total disconnect. My experience with what I’ve read from henry, the love, care and teaching i received during the 3 trips to thomaston, one of which was a week long marriage seminar with henry and donna, and the healing my wife and I received was all very positive. The material has helped me to understand what the flesh looks like, gaining discernment to walk out sanctification and my family has received supernatural healing during the conferences. I see them trying to equip the saints to discern gods ways so they can walk in holiness and experience the blessing of gods ways versus walking in darkness, often out of ignorance, and reaping destruction. Paul writes that God will not be mocked a man reaps what he’s sows. Either to the spirit=life or the flesh=death. I see sickness tied into the walking in the flesh. I have had my eyes opened through Henry’s teaching as to what fear looks like, what bitterness, envy, self pity, self hatred, occultism and many other areas of walking in the flesh look like. I’ve been more encouraged and desiring to read my bible than ever since I was first a believer 20 years prior. I had studied theology and philosophy as a major in college. I read everything I could from liberal theology to evangelical, charismatic, historical fathers, all the great classics and contemporary Christian writings. However, i left college confused and depressed. The lord led me on a 15 year journey to restore my mind, teach me his word is THE word, and he is the way and he is the Lord.

    I now realize natural intellegence isn’t the same as spiritually discernment or having the Holy spirit reveal his word to us. All my own thinking and pride led me into a pit of despair. His word is a living word that is spiritually discerned and it speaks to our life to conform us to his image.

    I have gained much insight into the scripture from Henry’s teaching. I found he and his wife an incredibly loving, caring and dedicated couple. I’m fully aware of the myriad of interpretations about theology of healing, disease, demonology, sanctification and on and on. The comments here left me sad because I see in henry and donna a love for jesus and his lost sheep and a life committed to helping as many as they can. I hear so many in the body using the label “wolf in sheep’s clothing” used against almost any ministry you can think of. I offer a caution that this man is doing, preaching and serving others out of what he believes is true to the scripture and his lord jesus. I believe his teaching is profoundly helpful and his heart is pure. Even if you think he is wrong in his teaching he is doing his best to pursue christ and run the race well. He is pouring his life out for the gospel. My life has been blessed by meeting henry and my desire to become like christ and live the truth of Gods word has only grown from having encountered their ministry. I never encountered any of the negatives I see posted here. I almost wonder if we are talking about the same person and ministry. Anyway I wanted to offer my thoughts as a fellow member of Christ’s body to edify and not create strife. Love in Christ jesus. Mark

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      If there are so many people concerned with Henry’s teachings, don’t you think that you should be concerned? Is Henry the only person who can offer you a healthy, God centered, biblical training? If you think he is, you have a problem. And that problem is Henry. He has you convinced you that only his ministry can help you. If you have any discernment, go find a healthy church, where so many people are not concerned with the pastor’s teaching. Read your bible, learn how to correctly divide the word of God. I’ll send you a document on hermeneutics which I hope will be helpful.

      Instead of name calling, can you be specific as to where I have not spoken the truth? I’d be glad to address your concerns. My concern for you is that you are being mislead.

The only book you need it the bible.

    • Phil Says:

      I’m glad to see that other people sense something is wrong with the “Be In Health” ministry. I was coerced into the ministry at age 19 by an older brother who got sucked in, and I walked away confused frightened and terrified of hell and that something was wrong with me because everyone else around me was buying it but I was the only one questioning it at the time. I ended up with many mental difficulties that I’m just now recovering from almost completely. It’s been SIX years since I had my head messed up and thank God I’m being restored. I know everyone who has gone there hasn’t had my kind of experience, but I’m more sensitive to getting things right and very hard on myself when it comes to error. Somewhere in there they were teaching fear was a sin. Well, after the teaching putting the fear of God and hell into me it was an everlasting loop of “I have fear” so “I’m sinning” which brought more fear and looped until it almost destroyed me completely to the point of suicide. Thanks to all who are finding the error with this ministry because I felt i was very spiritually abused. Some of the people there were very rude about things…like this is the truth and there’s no other way and spoke to me as if I had demons in me or something and they didn’t have a lot of respect for me as a human. Something really didn’t set “Wright” with me on this “Be In Hell” ministry..cough cough.. I mean “Be In Health.” Sorry…but I have some hard feelings about this…really messed my life up and I missed some of the best years of my life because I was dealing with the aftermath. I pray for all who have been sucked into this and that someday I can completely forgive and move on from the damage. Thank you.

  114. Michael Says:

    It is really hard to find information on the “be in health” teachings online, but I know a few people who are into this group and what I hear coming from them is concerning me greatly along with some of the things that I have heard Henry Wright say. You won’t find some of the deeper doctrines in the initial teaching materials but from what I am seeing and hearing there are some very heretical teachings coming out of that ministry.

    First of all I noticed that on the ministries web site, they are selling and endorsing the writings of Finnis Dake. This man has absolutely horrid theology. Very concerning to see this promoted by Mr. Wright! Just read what he said about the classic teaching on justification! When you read Dake, you will know where Benny Hinn got some of his crackpot ideas from such as his unorthodox teaching about the trinity being 9 persons!

    Secondly, here are some of the things I am hearing coming from those in this group. Now, I didn’t here Henry Wright say some of them but they definitely line up with what Dake teaches, and Dake is sold and endorsed by Wright. First of all they say that Jesus divested himself of his Godly attributes when he came in the flesh. This is a heretical teaching of the Word of faith group. Secondly, I have heard that they believe that in order to hold onto your salvation, you have to make sure that you don’t have any un dealt with sin when you die. Indeed Christians should repent of all known sin and go on repenting throughout their lives, they should not have to worry that they might have missed a sin and lose their salvation for it! That shows a misunderstanding of the doctrine of justification by grace through faith! Thirdly, those in this group are saying that man is born good and that when you sin it’s only because you listened to the devil. I have actually heard Henry wright say that he takes the position that sin is a “being”. Yes people listen to the devil but we are not born good, we are born with a sin nature, enslaved to sin and satan. That is a historic Christian doctrine! Lastly, this group is KJV only. I think the KJV is a great translation but I am concerned when Mr. Wright says that his teachings don’t work if you use another translation. That is great evidence that he is proof texting and not actually studying the context in which he is using his passages. So in closing, to endorse such a heretic as Finnis Dake, to deny the deity of Christ while he was on earth, to deny mans sin nature, to misunderstand the doctrine of salvation and to base all ones his teachings on one translation is enough to make me more then concerned about this ministry.

    • g Says:

      You are very intuitive. Everything you picked up on is correct.

    • Dave Says:

      You’re analysis is spot on, Michael. Theology matters. Henry went off the “orthodox” reservation a long time ago. He is full of aberrant teachings, scripture twisting, doctrinal freelancing, and is thoroughly disconnected from historic biblical doctrine on the nature of Christ, justification, sanctification, sin, and a host of other critical areas.

      In the midst of the listening to the cesspool of “teachings” in his free on-line seminar sampler, I found myself laughing out loud as Henry pontificated about the pre-Adamic world. With absolutely no scriptural foundation except a twisted eisegesis of a few Old Testament passages, Henry developed an entire fairy tale of prehistoric man, fallen angels, warfare, etc., etc.

      His stories really are the stuff of late night radio! Calling Art Bell!

  115. Robert Rodgers Says:

    Hey. My mom recently was invited to weekly meetings going over the “A more excellent way” book, She has owned the book for many years, and even once wanted to go to a conference of Dr. Wright’s, but at the time, I felt strongly that there was something amiss about this man. We didn’t end up going.

    Now I will admit, lately I’ve been struggling with my faith and have been resistant to God. But when she wanted to restart this whole thing by attending these weekly meetings, I have grown concerned again.

    Now when I go to her for a heart-to-heart conversation, she can’t go a single sentence of mine without rejecting it, blaming my situation on unclean spirits, and refusing to talk with me further until I’ve walked out on these spirits.

    Now a thing she’s done is “want to share what she’s “learning” with us”- her family!
    I respectfully told her that I did not believe this man’s teaching to be true, and wanted to opt out of nightly viewings of “For my life”, but she goes on and on almost maddeningly so, stating that as long as I live under her roof, God has given responsibility of me to her and my father. (Who goes along quietly with her whims on this matter).
    WhichI know He has. God placed me in this family and set me under the leadership of my parents.
    But when I can’t choose to not be a part of a teaching and a doctrine that I do not side with, I start to have nervousness about this whole thing.
    Either way, I’ve been fighting this, and looking up websites and articles suggesting Dr. wright is wrong. I’ve come to your fine site, and after reading through year’s worth of comments, would like to know if you still have a list of Henry Wright’s misunderstandings of scripture and so forth, would be gracious enough to email it to me.

    Please help me fight this indoctrination from penetrating my family’s minds.
    Thanks, Robert

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I tried to send you some information but I could not send you e-mails as they came back un-deliverable! Please contact me again.

      Thank you for your request. I’m always sorry to hear these stories happen in people’s lives. It happens a lot. Your mom is sucked in to his teaching because she does not know what the bible really says. She is taking Henry’s word because that is the way she wants her world to run. Henry has a degree in psychology and he knows how to use it! She also loves you and see you not walk closely with the Lord scares her. She is AFRAID. As a parent we want our children to be safe not only here but also for eternity. The unclean spirit is the Satan. He wants to break up your family and bring discord into peoples lives. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. HOW? LOVE!

      You will get no where with your mom trying to argue her out of his teachings. You only have one way out. First of all you need to get right with God because God does allow trials in our lives to bring us back to Him. All that takes is a true confessions of wanting to run your own life your own way with out Him. After you have confessed. He is faithful and just to forgive all our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Then put your faith in his FINISHED work on the cross to save us from our sins. You are forgiven. Next, and most importantly LOVE your mom. I don’t know what her love language is – you need to figure that out: quality time with her; does she like words of affirmation – that she is a good parent, works hard and etc; does she love getting gifts?; physical contact – being hugged and touched (back rub); acts of service – washing the dishes, mowing the lawn etc. We all live some of each but most people have a preference. Flood her with her love language.

      You can ask questions but don’t frustrate her. Pray before you talk to her and ask God to keep your mom and you calm and open. Ask God to protect your conversations from Satanic influences. Then, ask your mom about her concern for your salvation. Try not to tell her anything but mainly ask questions. What would she like to see your faith life to look like now and when you are 30 or 60 years old.

      Would she like to know that you pray daily, spend time reading God’s word, that you serve the Lord, worship God, tithing, keeping the Sabbath and memorizing his word? This is what most Christian do to grow in the faith. There is a saying that as plants and animals we, God filled humans, are either growing or dying. Ask questions, don’t argue. (If she will not give in to you owning your faith, ask her is she wants you to be an copy of her faith or if she wants you to own your own faith. To have a real relationship with God thought Jesus or a relationship with God through your mom.)

      If you can get her to agree to the above faith growing life. Then tell her that you will work on growing your own faith if that is OK with her. Tell her that hopefully she will see some changes in you. Then do IT. Tell her that change takes time but you will seek God. Find a church that God leads you to – one that is Biblically grounded – one that you enjoy listening to the pastor, that has a youth group – that does more than play games and have fun activities but one that digs into the word.

      Read your bible where she can see you. Maybe just open your bedroom door as you study the word. Learn how to divide God’s word correctly. I would like to send you brief summary on hermanutics. You can research Henry’s teaching, what the bible really says and what other pastors say on the internet. Thereby you will be more grounded in your own faith.

      Volunteer to pray meal times – don’t preach – say grace over the meal and ask for peace and God’s protection on your family. If you feel uncomfortable praying. Right a short pray, memorize and keep saying it until you feel comfortable praying with your family. (And example: God bless this food. May it nourish our bodies. Bless the hands that provided and prepared it. We ask your peace on this family. Amen.)

      You can start by memorizing just one verse a week that means something to you. This is great because you can fall back on the truth when you have doubts or concerns.

      I have other resources. If you have a specific issue that you are struggling with you may contact me again and I’d be glad to share what I have learned and found. A few subject are:
      what does the bible really say about: binding and losing, blessing and curses, by his stripes we are healed, casting our demons and faith healing and so.
      May the Lord bless you as you seek God’s truth and discern man deceptions. May the Lord work mightily to bring peace into your family.

      Hi Robert, I see the you posted a while ago. I hope things are going alright for you! That would be hard to be in that situation, seeking to honor your mother while knowing that she is endorsing false teaching. I would encourage you to keep seeking to honor her! When someone is indoctrinated it is very hard to convince them otherwise. It’s kinda like being programmed! I have learned a little bit from talking to JWs and from listening to cult expert walter Martin and he makes a great suggestion when dealing with programmed people. He says You can’t try to teach them or correct them, they think they are right and that you are the one in the dark. So you have to “let them teach you” so to speak. You need to ask questions that make them think about the doctrines they are spouting off. For example: find a verse that refutes the teaching. But instead of arguing it, ask them about it. For example: Henry Wright seems to teach that man is born good and that sin is always the result of listening to the devil. If your mom brought this up go to Jeremiah 17:9 ” the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick who can understand it?” Don’t argue it, rather ask her what her thoughts are about that passage and how the heart became wicked? Or in the gospels Jesus says that out of the heart comes adultery fornication etc. Ask her where the devil is in this passage and how this comes from the heart if man is good? But don’t do it in an argumentative way, rather do it in a way that is asking her to comment on it. That way, she won’t put her guard up and it will make her think about the text in front of her. That’s the idea anyways. I have found this way more effective with JWs then trying to refute them. It gets you past the programming and puts the word in front of them to think about. I would encourage you to use the family
      “Be in health times” to pick out wrights heresy on the DVDs and find scripture to bring up in your conversations. As your mom gets into Henrys teachings, more stuff will come up on the nature of Christ, the doctrine of salvation and sin ect. This is where the real danger is! listen to good preachers on this and then use that info. Give it time and pray! Pray for your own protection and find godly preachers to listen to. Some of my favourites are Martyn Lloyd Jones and John Piper. I hope this helps. Godbless!

    I recently picked up a more excellent way and began thumbing thru it. Because of the subtitles, it’s easy to go straight to the information you are seeking.

    I went directly to the books thyroid chapters.

    Because I have substantial experience with thyroid issues and have made thyroid one of my major studies in physiology, this is an area I understand well.

    Under the subtitle of hyperthyroid Mr Wright makes a horrible error, demonstrating a severe lack of knowledge in thyroid.

  117. Bobby Says:

    I have spent more time reading a more excellent way, and i am ready to make my review.

    Religious viewpoints aside, this book has one very clear agenda—SALES.

    The book is an excellent marketing platform to generate sales of seminars and educational materials where the real profits exist.The primary target audience is christians suffering from chronic illness. What is being sold is diagnosis and cures of tough diseases. Everything from allergies to cancer to parkinsons and heart disease, in the end the author has all the answers.

    The book is poorly written, yet despite the lower level of literacy and medical mistakes, the author is brilliant in keeping two steps ahead of his customers. Operating as a church he shelters himself from legal prosecution through freedom of religion and enjoys the tax free benefits.

    This review serves as my personal opinion.

    • Dave Says:

      Bobby, you are spot on in your analysis and opinion!! Wright has taken his marketing endeavor up several notches since his pitiful book came out. His writing (if he even wrote it) is in the same poor style as his speaking. I suspect an “editor” took transcripts from his traveling shows and compiled them into the book.

      In an earlier era, schiesters like him were called snake oil salesmen.

      • Bobby Says:

        Dave i would agree it has many similarities with the snake oil salesmen in the early 1900’s. The big difference being henry doesnt sell a tangible product, but rather he sells a religious viewpoint, protecting himself from litigation.

        ….and sell he does at $400 per pop according to information on his website. It wlouldnt be hard to calculate how much he brings in with just tuition alone by counting how many people in the seminar and multiplying that by $400.

  118. Bobby Says:

    On one side of the coin, Henry W Wright is a brilliant man. He has selected a market that will never run dry. There will never be a shortage of people with allergies or chronic health conditions. Many of these people are desperate, especially those with life threatening illness such as cancer. When someone is desperate they will try anything, not witholding any expense.

    On the other side of the coin Mr Wright carries the risk of falling sick himself, which would be very damaging to his credentials. Unfortunatley for Wright and his “ministry” this has already happened. While Mr Wright was selling his Be in Health books and seminars, he himself had heart disease and underwent heart bypass surgery. Not a very good testimony for someone who blames heart disease on deep self hatred.

    I do find it interesting that while this man was taking peoples money “helping” them with their health problems, Henry W Wright could not resolve his own health issue with what he sold to others.

    From a Biblical standpoint i find the book to be unbiblical. Does Mr Wright bend and twist scripture to fit the ideas he is selling? I would have to agree with others he does, but you have to remember Henry W Wright is in sales.

    When something is for sale its amazing what can come out of the mouth of the seller. It doesnt matter if its a car, a boat, a house or a vitamin supplement, a glorified image will be painted of the product or service.

    Bottom line? Let the buyer beware.

    I was almost sucked in back in 2011.
    Here in the UK.

    I went on the 5 day ‘for my life’ course and having previously studied ‘cults’ my alarm bells started ringing when we were told to save out questions until the end of the course!

    I was a new Christian but ended up leaving the course feeling frightened, inadequate and spiritually I’ll 😔

    With the help of the church I’m part of they explained that Henry’s teachings are not biblical and helped me through.

    I have been wondering if others had similar experiences for years!

  122. Lenny Says:

    I’ve gone to Henry Wright’s school and also Art Matthias’ Wellspring school and read both their books and through their Ministry and by eating God’s food which is radically different than food made and altered by man!- I have been healed by God of many so-called unhealable diseases and health problems- sometimes instantly- such as extreme allergies/environmental illness, narcolepsy, chronic fatigue, ADHD,gallbladder attacks, cancer Etc -my website gives more informationand some details and you can read plenty of testimonies in arts and Henry’s booksand see miracles happen before your eyes at their seminars in schools so when you see real healing going on all around you and actually your (Mr. Keathly) interpretation of the scriptures don’t necessarily go back to the Hebrew also such as “New Covenant” as opposed to “renewed Covenant” – but that is another subject that would take way too long to get into at this point I suggest you go back to the Hebrew roots and you’ll be surprised at a lot of scripture.also read Arts books and you will learn a lot more. the fruits of healingare a super strong indication that these Ministries despite what you say are valid and are in fact bringing more people to the Lord because a larger danger in the church are people insinuating that Godallows peopleTV stick as part of his plan which caused me and millions of people to run away from God through this misunderstanding – as I explained on my website – when I eat garbage food not made by God and grown His ways (glorify God in all ways even eating and drinking)and think and speak negative and unGodly thoughts (we reap what we sow and the curse causeless does not come)then I start to experience all kinds ofsymptoms from all kinds of man named diseases and when I go back to God’s food and focus on Jesus Christ and follow his word- confessing repenting forgivingEtc then I start receiving my healing again.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Any nutritionist can tell you that eating healthy will change your life. Please stop using other people’s books as your bible. Stick with the bible! Healing in Henry’s testimonials for the most part have not been substantiated by the medical profession. Even non Christian are frequently healed of cancern and other ailments but eating properly and taking better care of themselves. I believe that all healing whether for Christians for non-Christians is in the Lord’s hands.
      Faith Healers or Fake Healers? By Rev. Keith Gibson is a great article that you may want to consider.
      Among the celebrities in the Word Faith Movement, none is more well known than Benny Hinn. From his lavish life-style to his on-stage performances, Benny Hinn has become the modern stereotype of the faith healers, even providing at least partial inspiration for Steve Martin’s character in the movie Leap of Faith. Hinn claims that thousands have been healed in his crusades. There have even been claims of the dead being raised. But when pressed for documentation, the ministry has been woefully unable to provide much, if any, evidence for these assertions. Despite years of exposé’s by both Christian and secular sources alike, his ministry continues to have thousands of ardent followers. It is estimated by various sources that his organization takes in over one hundred million dollars per year, though this amount is disputed and is impossible to verify as the ministry refuses to publicly disclose its finances.

      The purpose of this article will be to take another look at faith healing by focusing on the ministry of Benny Hinn and attempting to evaluate his results. Undoubtedly, some will see this article as simply “anti-charismatic.” Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no intent to disparage any branch of Christianity. It is essential, however, that Christians test those who claim to speak for God and who claim a special anointing from God (cf. 1 John 4:1; 1 Cor. 14:29). It is hoped that, by looking at Hinn’s ministry, discernment may be gained for evaluating other purported faith healers as well. It is certain that we have not seen the last of them.

      What Is a Miracle?
      As we begin to evaluate the claims of Benny Hinn, we must first determine the boundaries for ascertaining a true miracle. Often, in articles of this sort, the assumption is made that a general consensus exists regarding what constitutes a miraculous event. However, the word itself has become so commonplace in modern usage as to simply indicate a stroke of good fortune. But a true miracle is more than an unusual, fortuitous event. Webster’s Dictionary defines a miracle as, “an extraordinary event manifesting a supernatural work of God.” (1) Norman Geisler similarly defines a miracle as, “a special act of God in the world, a supernatural interference into nature, a special divine intervention.” (2) He further goes on to state, “A miracle is not simply an extraordinary event but one that would not have occurred without special divine intervention.” (3)

      This definition of miracles is significant for evaluating modern faith healers, including Hinn. It may be conceded that many sick and hurting people leave the crusades feeling better, but this is not the same as saying that they have been cured miraculously. There are numerous possible explanations for apparent healings as we will see.

      Comparison to Christ
      One way to evaluate whether or not ministers like Hinn possess healing power would be to compare their miracles to those of Christ. When this is done, striking differences begin to appear. First, Christ healed specific individuals. Never once do we read a passage where Jesus say’s anything like,

      A muscle condition has been healed. I give you the praise. Just now lift your hands and call upon His precious name, dear Jesus, dear Jesus, dear Jesus. Sinuses have just been healed, I give you praise. A neck injury has been healed, I give you the praise. In the audience God is touching people right now right here, the Lord is touching many of you in this audience right here in this studio, I give you praise Jesus. In your homes, many of you are being healed. Someone’s shoulders have just been released from pain, someone with a shoulder problem has just been healed, I give you praise Jesus. (4)

      Yet this is standard fare among healers like Hinn who regularly stands at the front of the auditorium and recites illnesses supposedly being healed as though he is taking roll. Those who think they are among the recipients of healing are then invited to come to the front to testify.

      It should be noted too that all of this is carefully orchestrated by Hinn’s associates. Many who are not considered a good healing risk are restricted from access to Hinn. Dr. Stephen Winzenburg, a professor at Grand View College in Des Moines, Iowa has conducted research into evangelists’ ministries. Concerning Hinn, Dr. Winzenburg states, “He’s very much like a circus ringmaster when he’s there in the arena. People may be coming for healing, but it’s very much controlled hysteria.” (5)

      Another difference is that the miracles of Christ were immediate. Christ never commands a follower to claim a healing that did not occur or to go home confessing a healing and waiting for it to materialize. But again, this is common in Word Faith circles.

      Those Jesus healed did not relapse, either. But compare this to the case of Ernestine Rodriguez of Santa Fe, NM who was pronounced healed of brain cancer by Hinn during a 1992 broadcast. Tests performed three weeks later demonstrated the cancer remained. Hinn’s explanation on a later broadcast was, “I do know this: Healing is received by and must be kept by faith. There’s been the cases where they’ve lost their healings.” (6) Another example is Jordie Gibson, who determined to stop kidney dialysis and fly to a Hinn crusade in Anaheim. Gibson is still a believer and believes that he experienced God’s healing power, though he has had to return to dialysis. (7) Yet, never do we see Jesus instructing those He has touched to maintain their healing by faith.

      Christ’s healings were always successful. But listen to the story of William Vandenkolk of Las Vegas as related in the Los Angeles Times,

      Sitting cross-legged in front of a big-screen TV, the 11-year-old squints through Coke-bottle glasses at a Miracle Crusade video made more than two years ago in which he starred as a boy who miraculously recovered from blindness. “I liked it at first because I thought I was being healed,” says Williams in the living room of his aunt and uncle’s home. On the screen, Hinn bends down to William, his hands on the child’s face. “Look at these tears, “ says Hinn, peering into the child’s eyes. “William, baby, can you see me?” Before more than 15,000 people in a Las Vegas arena, William nods. In a small voice, the boy says, “As soon as God healed me, I could see better.” Hinn, an arm wrapped around William, tells the audience that God has told him to pay the child’s medical expenses and education. People weep. Today William is still legally blind and says his sight never improved, and that his onstage comments were wishful thinking.” Incidentally, the family has yet to receive any of the promised money for medical or educational expenses. (8)

      An HBO special documented Hinn’s crusade in Portland, Oregon. On stage Hinn performed 76 alleged miracles. The documentary’s producers asked the ministry for the names of the healed. Thirteen weeks later, only five names were received. Upon investigation, none had received an actual healing. One of those was 10 year-old Ashmil Prakash who had been stricken with two brain tumors. Despite the “healing” pronounced by Hinn and the pledge made by his impoverished parents to give thousands of dollars to Hinn’s ministry, the child died seven weeks after the crusade. (9)

      Lastly, the healings of Jesus were not psychosomatic. Jesus raised the dead and gave sight to those born blind and lame. Despite the claims, no good documentation exists that any of today’s healers have done similar miracles. The sad fact is they can’t even heal their own family members. Hinn’s mother was diabetic and his father died of cancer. (10) The stories of other faith healers are similar.

      What Is Going On?
      So what is one to make of all of the testimonies of miraculous occurrences? What of all those who every day are paraded on a host of shows on TBN and other networks including Hinn’s own, This Is Your Day? Several items must be considered by the discerning Christian.

      1. Some of the healings are psychosomatic. People whose primary problems are psychosocial in nature respond positively to placebo affects such as faith healers. In fact, the entire atmosphere of the crusades is orchestrated to build to a climax at the appearance of Hinn and the healing touch. Jesus never had to set the mood in order to be able to work. These emotionally charged events can have great impact on those whose conditions are more psychological than physical.

      2. Many are not healed at all. Having a person stand on stage and claim to be healed of cancer or other ailment doesn’t prove the healing has actually taken place. Such healings should be verified by a qualified physician using proper medical studies. These claims to healing can be the result of:

      Temporary euphoria- many people are caught up in the moment. The adrenaline rush and anticipation, even the excitement of being in the presence of one considered so anointed, may be enough to provide momentary relief. This is especially true of conditions whose primary symptom is pain.
      Positive Confession- what happens at these crusades cannot be separated from a theology that teaches its adherents they possess what they confess. In the belief system of many of these people, to confess that they are not yet healed would be to guarantee that they wouldn’t receive it. Many of them are simply confessing what they believe they will receive at some point.
      Hero Worship- There is tremendous desire on the part of many of these participants not to embarrass the healer. They believe so much in the person that they will react as they are instructed, even when they know it is not true. Consider the story of a woman supposedly healed of blindness by Oral Roberts. When instructed by Roberts onstage, “Tell us what’s happening inside you.” She replied, “There- There was a light.” However when interviewed the next day she admitted that nothing had happened. She stated simply, “I didn’t want to disappoint him.” (11)

      3. Some are outright fakes. James Randi, a magician, in his book, Faith Healers, documents many of the tactics used to deceive the gullible. Some are as simple as placing staffers in the audience who pretend to be healed. W.V. Grant would pull the heel of one shoe out slightly to make it appear that he was lengthening a leg. Peter Popoff received his “Words of knowledge” through a transistor in his ear through which his wife, via radio transmission, instructed him as she read from cards collected by staffers. Several faith healers have rented wheelchairs to use as props. Some have even encouraged people who walked into the crusade to sit in one of these chairs so they could be taken up to the front to get a better view. These same people were then pulled out of their wheelchairs to the amazement of the crowds. (12) The list of tricks is almost endless.

      4. Some are natural occurrences. The fact is that many illnesses get better naturally. This is true regardless of the treatment provided and sometimes without any treatment at all. These, then, are not miraculous healings, but rather the result of the wonderful way humans have been created by an all-wise God. For instance, ninety percent of all patients with low back pain will recover in approximately six weeks regardless of whether the pain was caused by a simple strain or a herniated, degenerative or bulging disc. (13) Even cancer has been known to have spontaneous remissions. These occur among believers and unbelievers alike, people who were prayed for as well as those who weren’t, and are presently without medical explanation. (14)

      Many people claim that their healing began at a crusade and then occurred gradually over time. But simply because a person got better after seeing Benny Hinn does not mean the person got better because of Benny Hinn. In logic, this is referred to as the Post Hoc Fallacy (“After this; therefore, because of this”). An example should demonstrate the problem. A balding man may realize that he didn’t begin to lose his hair until after he had children. He may surmise from this that he lost his hair because of his children and may genuinely believe that to be the case. However, it is also possible, even probable, that the man is losing his hair because of his genetic make-up and would have lost his hair even if he never had children. His children are merely incidental to his hair loss but are not the cause. In the same way, many who are “healed” at Hinn crusades are simply experiencing the natural course of the body healing itself. The visit to see Hinn was merely incidental to their recovery and not the cause of it at all. The recognition of true miracles demands tougher criteria.

      5. Despite the lack of evidence, the possibility should be left open that some may be legitimately healed. As Justin Peters, a Southern Baptist minister from Mississippi quoted in the Los Angeles Times, says, “As much disdain as I have for Benny Hinn, the vast majority of people who see him are real Christians….When 25,000 people are praying for God to heal them, it would be surprising if God did not heal some.” (15)

      So what’s the problem anyway? False hope is better than no hope right? Maybe Benny can’t heal but who’s he hurting? Perhaps we should just leave him alone.

      But people are hurt. False hope is actually devastating. Listen to the words of Brian Darby who works with the handicapped in Northern California: “You can’t minimize the impact of not being healed on the person, the family, the extended family….They have a sense of euphoria at the crusade and then crash down.” (16) The effect of not being healed can be terribly disillusioning. However, healers such as Hinn can always deflect criticism by blaming the sick for not having enough faith.

      And what about those who might stop taking essential medication thinking they have been healed without medical verification? On the September 30, 2003 episode of Hinn’s, This Is Your Day, a young woman is brought to the platform with what appears to be a blood sugar test kit. It is referred to by Steve Brock as her diabetes “pack”. After stating that God has healed her, she proceeds to throw the pack down on the floor of the platform. (17) Left untreated, diabetes can cause a host of debilitating medical complications and ultimately death. One sincerely hopes this young lady visits her physician to verify her healing. Healings of diseases such as diabetes and cancer cannot be validated within the confines of the crusades. There is serious concern for the welfare of many claiming healing.

      There is also concern for the Name of Christ and the reputation of the church. The actions of Hinn and those like him bear little resemblance to Christ’s as we have seen. When did Jesus ever slay anyone in the Spirit? Would Christ throw his coat on people to knock them down? Or blow on them? Despite promises to reduce his theatrics, Hinn can be seen on the same show referenced previously waving his hand at the choir shouting, “Receive it!,” at which point the entire choir falls. Hinn runs through the front rows touching heads causing people to fall. Are any of these actions even remotely reminiscent of Christ? Flamboyant hucksters like Hinn who live in mansions on the donations of the desperate bring reproach on the name of Christ. Those who continue to blindly follow these false teachers cause the church to appear gullible in the eyes of the world and, indeed, far too many who name the Name of Christ are just that.

      As Christians, we are a people of faith. There is an aversion to believing that anyone who claims a relationship with Christ would be anything less than honest and ethical. Additionally, many Christians want to believe in healers like Hinn as evidence that God is still at work. And indeed, God is still a God of miracles. But biblical faith is not blind or irrational. It is time for the people of God to demand more than anecdotal stories from those claiming the power of the apostles. While documentation of real miracles is lacking, documentation of those who have died at Hinn crusades, such as in Kenya, is not. (18) The miracles of Christ and the apostles were real. The same cannot be said for Benny Hinn and others like him.

    Lenny, do you see the huge contradiction in your post?

    For illness from dietary sources you dodge the harmful chemicals from highly procesed foods and eat organic foods Gods way. Thats good. Nothing wrong with that.

    But for environmental associated illness henry wright says we should be able to be exposed to anything and not have a negative impact on our health.

    So for environmentally associated illness we must forgive others to be healed, but for dietary illness we must remove the offending chemical to be healed.

    It makes no sense to apply one principle to the food we eat, but not apply it to the air we inhale. Is it OK to inhale dichlorobenzene in air freshener? But dont eat that food that has MSG in it!

    Some people can get away with eating junk food and not suffer the consequences, while others who engage in a poor diet feel the ill effects right away. Maybe those who get sick when exposed to junk food need to forgive someone, or they were not loved by someone.

    This henry wright is a slick con artist. … And if we go back to the hebrew roots as you mentioned, its wrong to use GODS word to make a profit.

    Now, i would like everyone who has given henry wright money to post the dollar amount with their comments.

      I read “a more excellent way” TWICE.. And I found this author to be a BIT arrogant, repetitive, (a lot like hypnosis) and seemed to have the exact same cause for ALL illnesses!
      My sweet little 92 year old grandmother believes she has breast cancer today ALLLL DUE to what MY DAD told her about I forgiveness and all that CAUSING fear and anxiety and in turn CAUSING her breast cancer. Is I was cutting her beautiful hair alllll off … She began to tell me WHY she has cancer … And it was alllll due to an arugument with a friend from HER CHILDHOOD!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY????? My sweet grandma believes she has cancer today because she didn’t ever forgive her childhood friends from hurting her feelings when they were 6??????
      Wow!!!! Un BELIEVABLE!!!!!!! I had already developed my OWN opinion from the book and agreed to go soon.. (My dad and husband think it could help fix my marriage) Annnd my hashimotos disease !
      I honestly see it a waste of time and money.
      But hey.. I’ll take a week to myself in beautiful Georgia! I have a mind of my own and serve a mighty God!!! I’m the daughter of the ALMIGHTY KING…. Whom shall I fear????
      Well…. Not Henry Wright, or dake or fake or whatever his name is.

        I hope you get this. Sweetie, you need to go.

        They are absolutely off the book jerks. However, they have haven’t always been and they have file cabinets full of research backing up what they teach in the ways of what people repented for and what they were healed of.

        IF your grandma prayed and and YHVH responded to her with that story in her childhood, then she should move forward w/repentance and forgiveness.

        Their teaching are not their own, they are well laced together segments of other teachers, often lifted word for word. This does not diminish the efficacy of them.

        Do not get involved with anyone who lives there and do not leave believing you have made any friends. The staff (those who are not family) are all bound to Henry by paper, to cross him is to lose their job.

        Pray for them.

        Understand that the deplorable inter-personal and/or personal failings of those that bring you the message does not diminish the message.

        Truth is stand alone. It is contingent only on the truth being received and mixed with the hearer’s faith and their willingness to submit to what they have learned.

        I used to believe that a minister would have no anointing if he treated others badly, but my interactions with Henry and his staff have taught me otherwise. They have helped an incredible number of individuals while playing god behind the scenes, ruining countless lives and totally defiling the Truth they purport to live by with their actions.

        I hope you used a different name then your real one here because they do troll this site and you will be flagged when you show up.

        Stay far away from their godly order teaching. It reflects a complete lack of understanding of the culture at the time the letter was written as well as the leaderships need to stay in control.

        Hierarchal leadership is a concept that was not introduced at the time of Messiah. There is no way Paul would have intended for what he said to be interpreted that way.

        They teach that ADD/ADHD is the result of ungodly order and if the wife submits to the husband then all will be well. Some people have had good results with this, however, if a child lives in a chaotic home due to conflict between the parents and the parents quit the conflict, it is reasonable to believe that the child would settle down as well.

        Aside from that, the person who ‘discovered’ ADD/ADHD has confessed it was a created disease, not real, for the purpose of making money. Henry knows this, and yet he continues to teach something that can not be proof texted (proving by backing up with other Scripture, keeping ALL Scripture in context and reflecting the culture at the time).

        I wish there was some way we could connect. If you post a disposable email (one that you don’t use very often and is not connected to your true identity) i will send you a note. ~DM

      The deal is this: HUNDREDS of people have been healed utilizing the information that BIH has coalesced into a palatable source.

      They can prove it. Irrefutable fact.

      However, they are corrupt to their core in their need to control.

      So. there’s that.

    its all about money. If he were not cash flowing, he would find something else to do.

    I personally would not take health advise from someone with heart disease. Henrys bypass surgery back in 2011 only buys him time. It doesnt cure the heart disease. As long as he doesnt die from something else in the meantime, he will eventually succumb to his heart disease.

    Nor would i take health advise from someone who denies environmental illness is real. Wrights book bears strong overtones of christian science, which i do not subscribe to.

    Environmental illness is real. Who can forget the chinese sheetrock disaster where thousands fell ill from sulfuric gasses being emitted from the sheetrock? Even airconditioners were failing as their coils turned black. Perhaps the failing airconditioners needed to forgive the hot water heater for making them work harder.

    In my own home we solved a lifetime of chronic sinus headaches when it was discovered a piece of ductwork was missing, drawing attic air into living spaces. Once it was repaired the headaches vanished.

    No such thing as environmental illness? How did Hitler commit genocide against six million Jews? He used an exteme form of environmental illness. Yet Henry Wright claims in his book we should be able to be exposed to anything. Hogwash!

    Perfumes, cigarette smoke, airfresheners, fabric softeners. All these contain toxic ingredients. Car exhaust and air pollution can have a detrimental effect, not only on people, but air pollution can damage crops. Perhaps the damaged corn needs to forgive the wheat in the field next door.

    To claim environmental illness and allergies are not real is delusional. In fact it goes beyond that. Its an outright lie. A lie told with the intent on scoring sales.

    Yes, i agree its corrupt. Corrupt to the core.

    • Despicable Me Says:

      Henry’s heart surgery was in 2010.

      He never says that Environmental illness is not real, he says it’s curable, and based on the numbers of people so stating they HAVE BEEN cured, and the fact that PVC is internationally renown for that fact as well as their research into allergies….one can not quibble.

      Scripture does say, in fact that no evil thing would hurt us, Luke 10:19. Now, either Scripture is or is not reliable. I Vote is reliable.


      As far as genocide by environmental illness….take a good look at the online photos of those gas chambers and ask yourself: “does it look like those rooms were airtight? What happened to the people in the immediate area if, in fact they were not? What, exactly does 6 million bodies look like and how LONG does it take to dispose of said bodies… come there are not six million names listed in the museums commemorating the deed…”

      Sometimes, in fact MANY times what we have taken for fact does not bear up under scrutiny.

      I find the heart attack curious as he had just been given a clean bill of health and, up to that exact moment in time, no issues.

      His consistent and on going abuse behind the scenes that those involved attempted to address and he (and his immediate family/support staff) refused to respond to.

      He teaches that anxiety can trigger such things, and, quite possibly, his inability to accept redirection, resulting in more then half his congregation walking out….boom.

      When your private life does not add up to your public life, i.e., you are not walking your talk, you do, in fact, give leave to the enemy to find you. When he does God will allow him to correct you.

      It’s really that simple.

      Additionally, he was a dictator behind the scenes and tended to hire ‘yes men’ type people who he could control, allowing those people the leeway to abuse others w/tactic consent was a reward of position that made their place in his organization tolerable.

      To do that he he relies on the hierarchal interpretation of the King James Version of the bible that was initially a government propaganda piece created to ensure the divine right of rulership. The hierarchal concept was discreetly embedded into the KJ at King James behest, and the rulership of women was highlighted (read: created, do a word study on how many times specific words are translated differently, depending on gender) to give common man a semblance of self respect; woman was, in fact, a pawn in the King’s book of moves to regain control of his kingdom, which was failing by the hour.

      The KJ is the slickest piece of crowd/population control ever put out by a government, and the adherents, those law abiding christian family, ruling over their families (read: wives and children) are being taught that all authority over them is GOD ORDAINED and should be respected and followed.

      NOTE: i only use the KJ, but i use it with an understanding that Henry does NOT.

      Any way. He has cleaned house. Whole new staff, even down to, i understand, the elderly matriarch that absolutely abused her long time connection and limited knowledge of the occult (she came out of it when it was so watered down as to be spiritually dangerous but bland in its presentation) being fired and replaced. If he had taken such steps (in regards to her and those like her) earlier, perhaps things would be different for him now…


      He has hurt, and allowed other to hurt, so many people that one would have to believe that the stench of their actions finally reached the nostrils of the most high.

      And without major acknowledgement and repentance, publicly, for that, i don’t see him ever regaining the widespread respect that he once a) worked so hard for and b) enjoyed.

      Plus, he has some major errors that reflect ignorance of basic truths that are huge deal breakers for anyone who has done even the slightest of personal study.

  125. Bobby Says:

    Thanks for your reply and insights into Be in Health.

    Henrys date for bypass surgery i pulled from his Facebook page posted june 21, 2011 announcing Henrys bypass surgery would be on june 23, 2011. Whatever the date, he has heart disease.

    I am a Christian and firmly believe in the word of GOD. However when i read that verse in Luke, i do not interpret it to mean i have a license to go jump into a bacteria infected lake and not experience any ill effects.

    Concerning the six million jews, i have always viewed that as a broad based estimate. We will never know the exact number, and memorials fall way short on names of the actual number of lives lost.

    Yes, PVC is just one of many toxic things in our environment that can cause ill health. WHO estimates 24 percent of illness is from environmental scources.

    Thanks again for your insight to this “ministry”. You have shared many interesting things.

  126. Despicable Me Says:

    ahh, Thank you for that correction on the dates.

    The walk out must have been sometime in the 2010 then. I was in my own state of personal flux during that time frame and it is possible that my memory is blurred by that. Deep personal trauma will do that.

    Re: Luke

    Anything done for GOD but not at his behest will get a hit or miss response. One does not jump into that lake w/out direct instruction from GOD, if one does they are on their own, baring some merciful act from the being they were supposed to be living IN RESPONSE TO, not giving direction to. A detail not often taught.

    Bearing that thought in mind, consider this:

    The immediate context of the Luke 10:19, that being “I beheld satan as lightening fall from heaven (v 18) and “Notwithstanding in this, rejoice not, that the SPIRITS are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (v 20)

    Understand this: the context of those verse are satan and his evil spirit minions, and THEY are subject to you. If you studied occultism at all (which is obviously that you, and most that read this blog do not) you would know that serpents and scorpions are common metaphors for evil, and in these verses are referring to evil spirits.

    Therefore, the intent of the discussion is to tell those that were his that they had power over the annals of darkness. All of it.

    Getting back to the bacteria infected lake and WHO…we do live in a toxic environment, but we can be victorious in him, however the world and WHO would like us to believe that there are things that we have no power over and we will (eventually) succumb to.

    Scripture states otherwise. There conditions, contrary to what we have been taught, those conditions are the ‘missing piece’, the ‘power’ that we are TOLD is available to us but is rarely demonstrated.

    What PVC does, and does well (or, at least USED TO) is coalesce these things so that someone who is ignorant of these tools can understand and utilize them.

    I find the contrast between what they teach and who they are to be grievous. Always have.

    Peace to you and yours. ~DM

  127. Bobby Says:

    A good question to ask ones self before sgning up for one of these is…..How much did Jesus charge?

    • Despicable Me Says:

      I don’t have an issue w/them charging for what they present, in the setting they present it.

      The materials cost money, the electricity, the upkeep of the building, even the time invested in creating and presenting a good teaching is not free.

      The issue(s) that i have are the way the treat people who really support(ed) them whole heartedly and their inability to respond to the truth of their own arrogance.

      They’ve become legends in their own minds, untouchable and non-rebukable, while throwing stones at most everyone else.

      They have become a coven of white witches and don’t even realize it.

      Hopefully. As in hopefully they don’t realize it.

    • lukejoelalex Says:

      I have been several times to the FML ministry time. They have a whole staff who are paid as most ministers in America are, a building to maintain, website ect. It costs 4 million a year to put on all the programs they offer. The tuition for class only covers half the true expense. Pastor henry has said several times his staff works very hard and is underpaid, but they do it because they love the people. The books and literature help subsidize tuition and keep the ministry afloat. It costs to minister and the apostle paul said ministers have a right to live of their ministry work. We were in a real crisis once abd they helped us significantly with both tuition and housing. We have experienced their love care and teaching and I have found in them a true Shephard s heart and love for God’s word.

      • Bobby Says:

        Lukejoelalex, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. By the way, i have this wonderful bridge in New York for sale….

  128. Michael Says:

    I’ve already posted my concerns about Henry Wrights teachings here, but I do want to add one thing. I’ve noticed a lot of people commenting here about how they have been helped by his ministry. I don’t doubt that some have been helped. There is a mixture of truth and error with him. He leads people to repent which is good. I have found in my own life how repentance has set me free from bondage. Many here have testified to their own experience of this. We must forgive others and we must fight our fears and anxieties by gods power, I fully agree! I’m guessing that those who are confronting sin in their lives due to Henry’s teaching are genuinely experiencing some freedom. The problem however is that they then buy into the rest of the teaching, especially the theology taught by Henry Wright which is not good at all. That is where the deception comes in. If you end up believing some of the things he teaches, like his ideas on salvation, you will actually find yourself in defeat, not victory! I pity the person who is influenced by his ideas on their death bed. Instead of focusing on Christ in that hour, the devil will be having a hayday and they will find themselves full of anxiety trying to find out what sin they committed that is killing them. Or they will be afraid of losing their salvation due to some sin they forgot to confess but haven’t found. So in closing, I think it is important that we remember that false teachers will have a mixture of truth and error. Why are people reporting all sorts of great things? Likely because they repented! We don’t need Henry Wright for that, scripture teaches us about that! But be careful. When you get further into his teachings (which are not found online to review) that’s where the heresy begins! Oh and by the way, I had posted last time that Wright was selling Finnis Dakes (a heretical teacher) works on his website. It appears he has suddenly quit selling them for some reason.

  129. Bobby Says:

    Michael, you summed it up very well.

    • Johnny Says:

      Henry Wright and his family/staff are bullies behind the scenes and superb actors in the pulpit. They would all benefit from reading Wade Burleson’s book Fraudulent Authority, but none of them have the guts to, they would have to adjust their whole circus.

  130. Candy Garcia Says:

    I have met Dr. Henry and Donna Wright, his staff and his congregation. They are all Godly people and very loving. Dr. Henry and his staff use the Scriptures in his conferences and For My Life and Walk Out programs. I stayed in Thomaston, Georgia for 2 and 1/2 Months plus I was there 2 other times. It is very helpful. When I went through his conferences and programs, they have helped me. I have seen a great improvement in my relationships with people and how I handle things. My healing has been progressive and it keeps improving. I had thyroid problems. Now I am taking half of the medicine that I used to take for it and my doctor thinks that I will not need any more medicine in about 6 months.

    Like any other successful Ministries, a person has to apply the principles taught and Stand on Scriptures in order for it to work.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      Please let me know when you are off your medication. I’ll pray to your continued recovery.

    • Concerned Says:

      One friend recently wrote me concerning Henry Wright’s ministry,”The only fruit I have seen from his ministry is one of division and confusion and it has devastated the relationship of some of the family members and friends of ours.” Another friend who was given his book to read and who wanted relief from an illness, read that the source of her illness was self hatred. Really? One of the first things I read in his book was that his teachings only work if you read it with the King James Version of the Bible.

      Personal testimonies of some who received help from Wright do not confirm what he teaches is from God. Countless of dangerous cults have devoted followers who testify how they received healing and help from the teachings and practices of their group. Sincerity means nothing when it comes to TRUTH.

      All one has to do is compare Wright’s book with Scripture and medical science to discover how far out his teaching is. But many people will follow him because they want to believe in him and his teaching.The world is full of sincere deceived people.

  131. Dixie Lee Says:

    Sounds like a whole bunch of people are jumping to erroneous conclusions here. Of course no one NEEDS Henry Wright. However, I would like to read just one report, from one of his self-appointed antagonists on this page, who has actually sat down and talked with him, or even just spent some time to discover the TRUTH about what is being revealed there by listening to any of their pastors teaching beginning with the foundational insight, rather than taking little tidbits totally out of context. This whole page is full of mis-directed arrows and ill-conceived interpretations of a teaching that in truth bears very little resemblance to what is portrayed here. I do suppose, though, that none of you would dare want to go sit down with any of these loving volunteers, particularly after being warned about how dangerous they or he are/is if YOU are not a Bible scholar. That must present a convenient relief for you.But hang on…. that very idea begs the question: exactly how WOULD you know so much about where you claim there may be deviations from scripture, if you are not, indeed, a ‘Bible scholar’ yourself. hmmmm…So the convenience may instead prove to be rather uncomfortable. I am very sad for anyone who has pre-conceived ideas about this ministry. It would behoove you to check into the success rate of this institute as compared to, say, psychiatric or medical findings. Be In Health is indeed under attack because of the tremendous freedom gained by so many. AND, I for one, am relieved that it is not popular and remains under fire by such as those on this site. It would be worrisome if this school became ‘popularly’ accepted.

    • wrightiswrong Says:

      I have sat down and talked with Henry. I have attended his weekend presentations and I am speaking from experience. He has many errors both spiritually and physically. You may choose to follow whomever you wish but I rest my case on the word of Christ in the Bible and not on Henry’s misguided teachings.

  132. Dixie Lee Says:

    BTW, Michael, It is painfully obvious that you are not familiar with Henry Wright’s insights and your statement: “”like his ideas on salvation, you will actually find yourself in defeat, not victory! I pity the person who is influenced by his ideas on their death bed. Instead of focusing on Christ in that hour, the devil will be having a hayday and they will find themselves full of anxiety trying to find out what sin they committed that is killing them. Or they will be afraid of losing their salvation due to some sin they forgot to confess but haven’t found.”” is a futile thought – a ‘vain imagining’, if you will. Be careful. I look to my own salvation. The Lord will take care of his own.

  133. Dixie Lee Says:

    Before riding rough-shod over someone else’s life, perhaps some of you might learn about the difference between environmental illness, mcs, fibromyalgia, allergies, and myalgicencephalomyelitus, et al. There are a lot of confused spirits going on and on here. It is not fair for anyone (who may actually be seeking help) to be overwhelmed by others spouting off their opinion when the subject matter is not understood.

    • Wade Says:


      I was intimately involved w/Henry for a very long time. While it suited his purpose, i was an accepted and respected individual, when i had been used for everything i had to offer, i was discarded.

      What Henry teaches is actually a conglomeration of other teachers/scholars that he has skillfully knitted together and present as his own. Skillfully.

      If you haven’t read the subject matter or are aware of the other people and teachers, you never know. But when you become aware and then start looking at the ‘trail of tears’ that leads away from Henry and BIH, it is unavoidable.

      You obviously mean well, and are being helped. Stay quiet and learn, do not jump to defend before you have more facts.

      • wrightiswrong Says:

        True to your word, have you talked with medical experts? They say the Henry even has his basics tenant in error.

    • Michael Says:

      Dixie, my “erroneous insights” have come from the mouths of family friends who are deep into Henry wrights teachings. I am responding to what my family members are being told. My comment on salvation is in direct response to something that was told to a family member! That is why I’m concerned Dixie! I have personally watched someone who, though they were not familiar with Henry Wright, held some similar ideas, die of cancer. Instead of the peace of Christ, to their dying breath they kept talking about healing. I had to sit with my ear to their mouth to hear because they were so weak and thats all they could talk about! This dear lady was looking for the sin that she thought was killing her. My concern is that people who buy into this teaching will be filled with fear and dread in their deathbeds, desperately looking for the sin that they think has put them there lest they fail to confess it and go to hell. I don’t know Henry, but I and my family know people who use his teachings and so I am responding to what is being said. Dixie, from what I am hearing, when it comes to the doctrines of sin, salvation and the person of Christ, Henry is deviating from truth in a dangerous way. These are not peripheral issues, if a person gets these wrong, it may lead them to hell! Remember what I said earlier, I am not contesting that some people may have found freedom and healing from Henry Wright. When you repent, you will find freedom and when you turn from anxiety, anger, fear and hatered I don’t doubt that certain physical ailments may go away! My problem is the teachings about sin, salvation, healing and the person of Christ that are then pushed on the “More excellent way” convert. See my earlier comments for details on those.

  134. anon Says:

    I was at Be in Health for nearly 13 years, and in a form of leadership for three years. If anyone is looking at attending their programs, beware, because “THE BRIDGE IS OUT!”
    I’m not being harsh, I’m simply relaying the truth. Even though it looks very good on the outside, the things this ministry does in secret would make you very angry and possibly have your hair standing on end.
    I love the people in this “Christian” cult. It is very sad that the devil joined them in such a way that it is no longer a safe place. My observation from the inside is that church “members” are kept in constant fear of the pastors. In my opinion, people are obedient to leadership because they think their salvation depends on it.
    I have also noticed that most of the insights claimed to be Henry’s alone are actually available from lots of other authors who wrote these things BEFORE Henry Wright was even saved. People who stay are often afraid that “this is the only place” where they can get these insights. Therefore, they would rather stay and be abused than leave.
    The good news is that God does not need Be in Health or Henry Wright to heal you. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you if habitual sin or wrong thinking is preventing His hand from healing. The truth is, the information we need for health and godliness is in the Bible, and the Holy Spirit is available to us any time we ask for help. If we have a relationship with the Lord Jesus, we don’t need a man to teach us (John 1:27).
    One last thing, I know of 100+ people who have had to get ministry for the abuse and mistreatment they endured while at Be in Health. Most of us have had to leave in order to get emotionally and spiritually well!

  135. daveyco Says:

    Hello – coming in the tail end of this blog. I am unsure if Mr Wright is right or wrong. I have read his book and there are a lot of testimonies of people who have been healed and made whole. I found the book a little disjointed and a bit repetitive but he does explain quite thoroughly his view on healing – it’s cause, the remedy and then the testimonies of restoration that would seem to confirm his teaching – and there does seem to be a lot of genuine testimonies. Just wondering Mr Wrightiswrong (as this seems to be your blog) can you let us know the way we can find healing? I would be very interested in knowing how you administer or facilitate healing in your circle of influence so that I too can know wholeness. Could you let me know of others that you have ministered to that have been healed of cancer and could therefore testify and confirm that the gift of healing works through you. Hoping you can share you gift with me. Regards David
