The Anathema Awards are given to the men and women 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 fifth annual Anathema Awards are:


Jack van Impe

Jack wins this award tears down for a fifth straight year.  He cries at the close of every show when he asks people to pray with him to be saved. I doubt anyone will take this COVETED award away from him until he dies.

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 IMMANUEL YAHWEH 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. 


Arnold Murray, Hal Lindsey, Jack van Impe, Tim LaHaye, Bob Larson, Paul Crouch, Hendrick "Hank" Hanegraaf, Kenny Copeland, Rodney Brown, T.D. Jakes, Ike, Fred Price, Jesse Duplantis, Jerry Falwell, Harold Camping, Grant Jeffrey, Yaacob Ramsel, Greg Laurie, Chuck Smith, Joyce Meyer, Gloria Copeland and Anne Graham Lotz.

This award (Proverbs 16.5; Leviy-Matt. 6.1) is given to the proudest and most arrogant 501C3 CEOs. It was difficult to decide who is the most arrogant, but these men are all deserving of it.

Arnold Murray tells his sycophantic devotees that he is the greatest Bible teacher in the world and that he has access to ancient knowledge that few other men have.

Hal Lindsey keeps telling people he is the Jeremiah of today and the Father of the Modern Day Prophecy Movement through his mouthpiece Steve Bolt instead of Cliff Ford who went back his home in Arkansas to start a book publishing business.  Steve also brags about Hal's books saying they are the greatest books ever written just as Cliff use to (Prov. 27.2). If a person has an employee or partner praise him it's the same as the person praising himself.

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. (Prov. 27.2)

Bob Larson brags that he can cast out demons and is so dangerous to the netherworld that fallen angels impersonate him and do things to get him in trouble.  If he believes this idiocy he needs lots of professional help.   The Body of YAHSHUA needs to give him a section 8 discharge.

Hendrick "Hank" Hanegraaf incessantly reminds his brain-dead sycophants that he is the president of the Christian Research Institute.   His attitude when answering questions is one of mock-humility.  When someone upsets him his true personality -- egocentric, beligerent arrogance -- shines through.

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

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

T.D. Jakes, Ike and Fred Price spend most of their time telling sheeple they will become wealthy if they give them their money.  They have NO shame in making people think Christianity is all about making money.

Jesse Duplantis also tells his sycophantic, brain-dead followers that he can make them rich if they give him their money.  He also brags about having visited Heaven.

Jerry Falwell is one of the most arrogant men on the planet.  His mannerisms, speech and actions are filled with so much pride it is agonizing to watch him.  He exudes pride with every breath.  His greatest claim to vile pride is his arrogant boast that he would never, beg, borrow or steal for himself and his family, but he would beg, borrow and steal for the Lord.  I heard him say that at Thomas Road Church.  That is not only one of the most arrogant things any sinner could say -- it is blasphemy!  He is saying the Creator of the Cosmos is so impotent that a mere man must raise money for Him by begging, borrowing and stealing!   For Jerry to say he is so proud he would NEVER beg or borrow money is the depth of sin. INCREDIBLE!!! -- dov-falldown.htm

Harold Camping's false humility cannot hide his devilish pride.  He actually claims that his 501c3 religious corporation is one of the very few, if not the only one, giving the true Gospel.  He says most assemblies and other 501c3 corporations are putting out a false Gospel and he stands alone.  He also says all local assemblies are apostate and have been abandoned by the Lord.   This year he came up with a brand new false doctrine -- that the era of the local assembly is over and no one has been saved through the ministry of the thousands of local assemblies around the world since September 6, 1994. That was the date he prophesied YAHSHUA would return. Sadly, Camping teaches a false gospel and according to his own testimony he is NOT born from above!  He is dead in his sins and headed straight to Hell. For details of his false doctrines go to -- dov-camping.htm

Paul Crouch brags about his satellite network claiming it is one of the angels of Revelation that preach the Gospel during the Great Tribulation (Rev. 14.6-11).  He also pushes the secret Bible code lunacy and believes he is mentioned by name in it.

Grant Jeffrey and Yaacob Ramsel join this notorious host of hypocrits (Paul Crouch) by claiming to have found secret messages in the Scriptures.  For a complete and irrifutable refutation of the alleged Bible code go to -- dov-els.htm

Greg Laurie is an unsophisticated, arrogant buffoon.  He actually says in public that he wants to be the next Billy Graham. Incredible!

Chuck Smith, the founder of the Calvary Chapel Cult, pretends to be humble, but when he is confronted about one of his false doctrines he becomes extremely defensive and says he is right because he has been studying the Bible for more than 50 years as if that means anything.  There are thousands of men around the world who have been studying the Bible longer than Smith and they don't believe what he does.  Who is right?  The number of years you study the Bible does not determine if you are right or wrong about your doctrines.  Smith also refuses to dialogue with anyone concerning his false doctrines which is the mark of a proud man and also a mark of a cult leader.

Joyce Meyer is probably the most arrogant spiritual femakazi in America. She teaches all of the false doctrines of the faith movement heretics and does it in a rude, crude and ugly manner. She has a butch haircut and parades around the stage like the male heretics do.

Gloria Copeland teaches all of the false doctrines of the name it and claim it crowd in a most arrogant manner. She is not as arrogant as her husband, Kenny, or Joyce, but she exhibits enough pride to be repulsive enough to get this award.

Anne Graham Lotz is super arrogant! Her father, Billy Graham, and brother, Frank, are not arrogant. I do not know where she got her super pride. It is a sinful trait that will cause her to have great loss of rewards in Heaven, if she is truly born from above. It is obvious that if she is saved she is backslidden and apostate!

Honorable mention goes to Marilyn Hickey and her daughter.

I must explain that Thee Infallible Holy Word of YAHWEH Elohim clearly PROHIBITS females from teaching adult males or exercising authority over them (I Timothy 2.9-15)! They are to learn in total silence in public services and ask their husbands any questions they have at home (I Kor. 14.34,35)!



Arnold Murray

Arnold Murray of the Shepherd's Chapel in Gravatte, Arkansas, wins this coveted award by a belly. He has stiff competition, but he walked away with it again because he teaches more heresies than his competitors and some of the most damnable ones. For a thorough list of the blasphemous heresies Arnold teaches go to -- dov-murray.htm

There are thousands of heretics in America and the world, but honorable mention goes to Chuck Smith, Harold Camping, Ken and Gloria Copeland, Oral Roberts, Ken Hagin, Joyce Meyer, Bishop Jake, Ike, Fred Price, Rodney Brown, Hendrick Hanegraaff, Jesse Duplantis and Creflo Dollar.

Arnold Murray

Arnold Murray of the Shepherd's Chapel wins the Pharisee Award again for saying he doesn't want to hear criticism of himself.  He claims he is beyond criticism and no one should ever criticize anyone.  This is to be expected from a man who has an extremely distorted understanding of the Scriptures.

No one is above criticism.  If Keph could be publicly criticized (Gal. 2.11-21) by Paulos then Arnold Murray can be along with everyone else who claims to be born from above.



Jack van Impe

Jack has won this award the last five years 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 Graham and Chuck Smith for a fourth year.


Jan Crouch

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

Honorable mention goes to Rexella Impe.


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

Jack van Impe says that just about every bad thing that happens is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

Hal Lindsey continues to prophecy that the Rapture is just over the event horizon.  He claims that the flair up in the Middle East from the 911 attack and Jewish/Palestinian fight will lead to a peace treaty headed by the antichrist.

Grant Jeffrey and Yaaqob Ramsel share this award again because they continue to make a big deal out of their alleged ability to find secret messages in the Scriptures.  Paul Crouch joins this gang by continuing to hype the secret Bible code nonsense.

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 prophesies in that inane book and is rightfully known as the "Father of the Modern Day False Prophecy Movement." Thousands of brain-dead men and women 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 fifth 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).

Honorable mention goes to Arnold Murray of the Shepherd's Chapel for his hatred of Hendrick Hanegraaff and for those who refute his false doctrines and disagree with him.


Hal Lindsey & Jack van Impe

Hal Lindsey and Jack van Impe win this award again for their undying penchant for predicting the date of the Rapture.

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. He made a second false prophecy when the Iran/Iraq War broke out saying the Rapture was just a few months away. He made his third public false prophecy last year when he said the Rapture would take place by the time he turns 76.

Jack is predicting the Rapture will take place between 2001 and 2012.  He is stretching his day and hour out now.  If he stretches it out long enough he may get it right, but he will not live to see the start of the Tribulation or the Rapture. He prophesied in the past that the Rapture would take place in 1981, 1994 and 2001.

The 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

Paul Crouch, the founder of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, wins this coveted award a fourth year in a row 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 women from numerous religions on his network.

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


Hendrick Hanegraaff

Hendrick once again wins this coveted award for continuing to claim he is being persecuted by nearly everyone.  He claims believers persecute him for being too soft on the Roman Catholic Corporation and also for being too hard on it.  He also claims the Pentimatics continue to persecute him.  If I didn't know better I would think Hendrick has a persecution complex.


Jesse DuPlantis

Jesse is one of the funniest religious clowns in America. He beat out Rodney Howard Brown, who won this award the last four years for his incredible tenacity in claiming his inane behavior is inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT.

Honorable mention goes to Rodney Howard Brown and Kenny Copeland, who loves to dance around on stage and tell stupid jokes, and to Jack van Impe, who tells moronic jokes on his TV show.


Jack & Rexella Impe

Jack and Rexella win this award for a fifth 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 fifth year in a row for having the most elaborate carnival show on television.  No one even comes close to their wild antics.



Hendrick Hanegraaff, Harold Camping, Chuck Smith, Hal Lindsey & Arnold Murray

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

Honorable mention goes to the entire 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.

Camping apparently started this inane practice 40 years ago and is still going strong.

Hendrick 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 and then replaced Brad in 2000 with his son-in-law and heir apparent, Brian Broderson.

Hal Lindsey joined this click this year with his talk show.

Arnold Murray only answers questions via the mail and his TV show, but he does as bad a job as these other milk squirters.

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 Hendrick, Camping, Smith, Lindsey, Murray 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.
