The Anathema Awards are given to the men and females in the religious sector of society who exalt themselves above the rest with false prophecies, false doctrines, inane acts, and general stupidity. For the most part the winners of these awards are not born from above and the few who are, are backslidden or apostate.

The winners of the first annual Anathema Awards are:


Jack van Impe

Jack wins this award tears down. He cries at the close of every show when he asks people to pray with him to be saved.

Most preachers ask people to recite a trite prayer to be saved, but few of them cry while they do it. Impe cries every time thinking it will move people to pray with him. He places trust in his emotionalism to get people saved rather than in the HOLY SPIRIT.


Hank Hanegraaff, Jack van Impe, Hal Lindsey

Hankie, Jack and Hal won this award (Leviy-Matt. 6.1) for bragging about how great they are.

Hankie incessantly reminds his brain-dead sycophants that he is the president of the Christian Research Institute. He also damns and makes fun of the charsimatics on nearly every show.

Jack van Impe claims he hasn't been wrong in his prophecies or forty years even though he has yet to be right about any of them or anything else. His mouthpieces Rexella and Chuck Ohman praise him on every show.

Hal Lindsey keeps telling people he is the Jeremiah of today and the Father of the Modern Day prophecy Movement through his mouthpiece Cliff Ford.

Honorable mention goes to Billy Graham who wrote his autobiography which is a true puff piece.


Bill McCartney

Bill won this award (Leviy-Matt. 6.5) for his hypocritical march in Washington where he and his sycophants prayed pious prayers in public.


Hal Lindsey

Hal wins this coveted award (I Tim. 6.10; I Yochanan-John 2.16) for his infidelity and his lust of money. He claims he quit as "pastor" of his church to devote his time to writing books. He was fired for infidelity and he is writing as many books as possible to make as much money as he can.

Honorable mention goes to Jack van Impe and every televangelist in the world. If these men truly want to save the world they would make disciples of faithful men (2 Tim. 2.2) from around the world and send them back to their native countries to do the same. They wouldn't have their ugly faces on television.


Jack van Impe

Jack won this award for his constant proclamation that he loves everyone who claims to be a "Christian" no matter what they say or do. He only loves himself and claims he loves others so he can make more money.

Honorable mention goes to Billy and Frank Graham and Chuck Smith.


Jan Crouch

Now that Tammy Bakker is out of the loop Jan wins the Jezebel Award (2 Kings 9.30) hands down.

Honorable mention goes to Rexella Impe.


Jack van Impe & Hal Lindsey

This award went to Hal and Jack for different reasons. Jack won because he says just about everything that happens, from El Nino to every terrorist incident, is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Hal won because he is making a big deal about a prediction by Joe de Corsey that Russia and the Arab nations will attack Israel next year.

Both men suffer from the dreaded Halunacy Syndrome. This syndrome infected Hal Lindsey in the late 1960s compelling him to write his meaningless book, "The Late Great Planet Earth." He started the modern day false prophecy movement with several major false doctrines and prophecies in that inane book and is rightfully known as the "Father of the Modern Day False Prophecy Movement." Thousands of brain-dead men and females followed him in making inane false prophecies with his most faithful disciple being Jack van Impe.


Hal Lindsey

Hal won this award (Acts 7.54) hands down for his vile hatred of the Arab peoples who he condemns on every program. He is one of the leading hatemongers in the world and one of the biggest anti-Shemites in the world. The Arab peoples are descended from Shem (Gen. 10.21-31) through Abraham (Gen. 16.16).


Kenny Copeland

Kenny wins this award (2 Keph-Peter 2.1) because he is blending New Age beliefs with "Christianity" to create a new religion in which everyone can become a "god." He teaches that everyone can become a "god" by exercising enough faith. He says you can have whatever you want if you name it and claim it. He teaches "Jesus" was born again and claims everyone can become a millionaire if they give enough money to men like him. These are just a few of the satanic doctrines Kenny teaches.

Honorable mention goes to all charismatic/pentecostal teachers, neo-reformationists, and everyone who is infected with the deadly Halunacy Syndrome.


Jack van Impe

Jack wins this award for first prophesying the Rapture would take place in 2000 and then changing it to 2000 to 2007. He will probably pick a specific year once again. He can't help himself. Honorable mention goes to Hal Lindsey, the Father of the Modern Day False Prophecy Movement, who prophesied the Rapture would take place in 2000, and everyone infected with the terminal Halunacy Syndrome.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture cannot happen until the New World Order is established, a world wide peace treaty is put together and the wicked shout "Peace and safety!" (I Thes. 5.3).  The beast confirms this treaty (Dan. 9.27). When he confirms the treaty he will be revealed to believers as the beast (2 Thes. 2.3).  A war will break out between the beast and three members of a ten nation confederacy (Dan. 7. 8,20,24) which will expand into a world war (Apok. 6.3,4) followed by  famine (Apok. 6.5,6), plague (Apok. 6.7,8) and martyrdom of believers (Apok. 6.9-11).  The few believers who survive the slaughter will be raptured out of the world (I Kor. 15.51-53; I Thes. 4.16,17) prior to the breaking of the sixth seal which is the pouring out of the wrath of YAHWEH and the Lamb (Apok. 6.12-17).  Believers cannot be on Earth when the wrath of the Lamb and YAHWEH is poured out because we are not destined for wrath (I Thes. 5.9).



Bill McCartney

The founder of Promise Keepers wins this coveted award because he has done the most to bring together people from myriad Protestant denominations and false religions such as Babylonian Talmudic Judaism, Roman Catholicism, and Mormonism. His march on Washington was the crowning achievement of his ecumenical career.

Honorable mention goes to Paul Crouch (TBN), Pat Robertson, Jack van Impe, Jerry Falwell, Hal Lindsey, Hank Hanegraaff, Billy Graham, Frank Graham, Randall Terry and everyone who works together with Roman Catholics, Jews, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses and other cults.


Hank Hanegraaff

Hankie won this award for his constant whining (I Kor. 10.10; Yahudah-Jude 16) about the curse John Kilpatrick placed on him and the so-called persecution of him by the people he damns on nearly every program. Unfortunately, the curse didn't work.


Rodney Howard Browne

Rodney won this award for his incredible tenacity in claiming his inane behavior is inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT. His gimmick of laughing in the Spirit clinched the award for him.


Jack & Rexella Impe

Jack and Rexella won this award because they have the funniest show on television. It's hard to keep from doubling over with laughter while watching them. They are the best comedy team since Laurel & Hardy.


Trinity Broadcasting Network

TBN won this award (I Kor. 14.20,23) hands down for having the most elaborate carnival show on television.



Hank Hanegraaff

Hankie wins this coveted award (Ibriy-Heb. 5.11-6.3) for squirting lukewarm, sour milk to his sycophants.

Honorable mention goes to Chuck Smith and Don Stewart.

None of these clowns are qualified to do what they are doing and religious talk shows that focus on answering the questions of callers are a total waste of time and money.

Hankie followed the absurd format of Walter Martin who did far more damage than good with the "Bible Answer Man" program. He was not qualified to teach and he taught so many false doctrines it is hard to count them. He rejected the first 11 chapters of Genesis, including the universal flood, and he rejected many other passages to name a couple problems with his theology.

Chuck Smith grew weary of Hankie's nonsense and dumped him from his Calvary radio network. He decided to replace the "Bible Answer Man" program with his own program, "To Every Man An Answer," and hired Don Stewart to run the show.

There is no need for these inane programs. Any believer who needs to have a question answered should go to the bishops (pastors) of the local assembly he attends. If they can't give him an answer it is their duty to find the answer. Believers who are not part of a local assembly need to find one and become a useful member (I Kor. 12.12).

These moronic radio programs are keeping the people who listen to them in a state of spiritual infancy. They do not encourage listeners to find answers on their own even though they claim they do.

If Hankie, Chuckie, and Donnie truly wanted to stimulate their listeners to grow (Ibriy 10.24,25) they would tell them to search for an answer on their own. If they did that they would have no purpose for being on the radio and they couldn't beg for more money to fatten their massive bank accounts.
