It’s no surprise that this was the last time Dr. Walter Martin, author of the well known work The Kingdom of the Cults, was allowed to appear on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
In this series of clips below, Dr. Martin exposes just how insane modern pseudo-Christianity has become in that it engages in egregious censorship and opts to coast along without confronting heresy even when it is as blatant as TBN-style “little gods” theology.
If you’re unfamiliar with just how wrong the personalities on TBN are, please watch the series “A Call to Discernment.”
Dr. Martin shows that it is necessary to engage in dialogue with every professing Christian, no matter how famous, whenever they slip up and fall into non-Biblical teachings, such as the preachers on television constantly do.
Dr. Martin’s point is one that cannot be ignored. Even if it doesn’t seem “nice” to call out false teachings, we have an obligation to do it. The Apostle Paul had no problem calling out false teachers by name, so why should we?
Why are modern Christians scared of confronting heretical doctrines that minimize the glory of God?
To put it bluntly, we are commanded to expose these minister of unrighteousness. Paul made it very clear in his letter to the Ephesians:
Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

The simple fact is that we must confront these doctrines head on in order to make it clear to the people of the world just what Christianity is and what it is not.
(Finally a short clip showing just how heretical these TBN figures are)
Note: According to the uploader of the YouTube videos, this was never re-aired as it was supposed to be. No surprise there, either.
