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 apostate and or backslidden.

The winners of the third annual Anathema Awards are:


Jack van Impe

Jack wins this award tears down for a third year.  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.

Jack and most evangelists think that recitation of a trite prayer saves.   A prayer cannot save anyone.  A person is saved when he believes that YAHSHUA is the Mashiyach, the Son of YAHWEH who shed His blood to cleanse the elect of their sins and give them eternal life through the power of His bodily resurrection.  A person doesn't have to recite a formula prayer to be saved. 


Hal Lindsey, Jack van Impe, Hank Hanegraaff, Paul Crouch, Kenny Copeland, Rodney Brown, Grant Jeffrey & Yaacob Ramsel

This award (Leviy-Matt. 6.1) goes to Hal Lindsey, Jack Impe, Hank Hanegraaff, Paul Crouch, Kenny Copeland and Rodney Brown for bragging about their alleged spiritual greatness (Prov. 27.2).  Grant Jeffrey and Yaacob Ramsel join these hypocrits by claiming to have found secret messages in the Scriptures.  I doubt any of these men are born from above and if any of them are they are backslidden.

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.  Cliff also brags about Hal's books saying they are the greatest books ever written.

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.

Hankie incessantly reminds his brain-dead sycophants that he is the president of the Christian Research Institute.

Paul Crouch brags about his satellite network claiming it is one of the angels of the Apokalupsis that preach the Gospel during the Great Tribulation (Apok. 14.6-11).

Copeland claims to be an Apostle of greater standing than the Twelve.

Rod Brown also claims to be an apostle greater than the Twelve.

Grant Jeffrey and Yaacob Ramsel join these hypocrits by claiming to have found secret messages in the Scriptures.


Paul Crouch

Paul Crouch, front man for the Trinity Broadcasting Network, wins the Pharisee Award this year for saying he doesn't want to hear anymore criticism of himself.  He has gone off the deep end claiming he is beyond criticism.  This is to be expected from a man who has a miniscule knowledge of the Scriptures and who hangs with false prophets, false teachers, apostates, hypocrits like himself and backslidders. No one is above criticism.  If Keph could be criticized (Gal. 2.11-21) Paul Crouch can be along with everyone else who claims to be born from above.



No Winner this year



Jack van Impe & Paul Crouch

Jack won this award the last two years and shares it this year 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.  Crouch joins Jack for his love of everyone who claims to be saved.  He puts virtually anyone on his network.

Honorable mention goes to Billy and Frank Graham and Chuck Smith for a third year.


Jan Crouch

Jan wins the Jezebel Award (2 Kings 9.30) hands down for a third year in a row because Tammy has not made a complete comeback yet.

Honorable mention goes to Rexella Impe.


Jack van Impe, Hal Lindsey, Jerry Falwell, Grant Jeffrey, Yaacob Ramsel & Paul Crouch

This award goes to Jack because he says that just about every bad thing that happens is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Hal Lindsey and Jerry Falwell share this coveted award with Jack because they claim Y2K will probably set the stage for the Rapture.  Jeffrey and Ramsel share this award because they are making a big deal out of their alleged ability to find secret messages in the Scriptures.  Paul Crouch joins this gang by hyping the secret Bible code nonsense with his movie "The Omega Code."

Unfortunately all of these 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 wins this award (Acts 7.54) hands down for a third year because of 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 & Benny Hinn

Kenny wins this award (2 Keph-Peter 2.1) for a third year, but Benny Hinn joins him.  Copeland continues to blend 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.

Benny Hinn shares this award because he teaches more false doctrines than of the other televangelists.

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


Hal Lindsey, Jack van Impe & Jerry Falwell

Hal Lindsey, Jack van Impe and Jerry Falwell win this award for claiming Y2K will pave the way for the Rapture.  Y2K may be moderate, but it has nothing to do with the Early Tribulation Rapture or the Great Tribulation.  Those events are 5 to 10 or more years off.  The New World Order Gang has a great deal of work before they can establish their satanic world order which must be in place (Dan. 7.23) before the Great Tribulation starts.

Hal, of course, is the Father of the Modern Day False Prophecy Movement.   He was the first to prophesy the Rapture would take place in 1981, claiming YAHSHUA would return 40 years after the establishment of the nation of Israel in 1948.  He believes the false doctrine that the Rapture takes place seven years before the Second Advent leaving 1981 as the year.

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).



Paul Crouch, the founder of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, wins this coveted award a second year 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. He has myriad men and females from numerous religions on his network.

Honorable mention also goes to Bill McCartney who won this highly coveted award two years ago and to Pat Robertson, Jack van Impe, Jerry Falwell, Hal Lindsey, Hank Hanegraaff, Billy Graham and Frank Graham.


Hank Hanegraaff

Hank won this award two years ago 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.  He won it a second and third year because he won't stop crying about the imaginary persecution of him.


Rodney Howard Brown

Rodney won this award the last two years 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 a third year in a row.


Jack & Rexella Impe

Jack and Rexella win this award for a third time 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.

Honorable mention goes to Paul and Jan Crouch.


Trinity Broadcasting Network

TBN wins this award (I Kor. 14.20,23) for the third year in a row for having the most elaborate carnival show on television.



Hank Hanegraaff & Chuck Smith

Hank and Chuck win this coveted award (Ibriy-Heb. 5.11-6.3) for squirting lukewarm, sour milk to their sycophants.

Honorable mention goes to the Calvary Gang, Jack van Impe, and the TBN Gang.

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.

Hank 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 because he taught myriad false doctrines.  He even rejected the first 11 chapters of Genesis as being literal.  He thought the universal flood was a local flood and did not believe Adam and Chavaah were real people!

Chuck Smith grew weary of Hank's nonsense and dumped him from his Calvary Satellite Network in 1997.  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.  Don left the sow in 1998 year so Chuck replaced him with his grandson Brad Smith.

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 Hank, Chuck and everyone else who has a religious answer program 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.
