Hillsong Pastor, Carl Lentz, Praises Steven Furtick, I Appreciate You’

Posted by

Carl Lentz is the lead pastor of the seeker-friendly prosperity church New York City branch. Lentz, who recently announced that his church is “not anti-LGBT” and that everyone is welcome, including unrepentant sinners, is now praising Steven Furtick, the founder and pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC.

Carl Lentz and Steven Furtick

Steven Furtick, who recently admitted that his church lies about baptism numbers, has made a number of controversial claims about God, including that Jesus committed sin, that God doesn’t have the power to override your unbelief, and that Jesus is “sneaky.” He preaches a charismatic-inspired prosperity gospel, regularly twists Scripture — including reading himself into it — and has even preached from non-existent Bible verses.

In short, Steven Furtick is a false teacher.

Carl Lentz had nothing but grand accolades to say about him, however, stating “your church and your life are such good examples of what happens when you mix unadulterated focus on JESUS, ferocious faith and availability with the grace of God.. absolutely anything is possible..”

I appreciate you @stevenfurtick! Congratulations on 13 YEARS of leading @elevationchurch…. a church that is filled with kind, humble people who are changing lives…Few people would have predicted that a guy from Monks Corner South Carolina, would go plant a church that would someday impact so many on a literal world wide level as it is right now. Your church and your life are such good examples of what happens when you mix unadulterated focus on JESUS, ferocious faith and availability with the grace of God.. absolutely anything is possible…It’s a blessing to be your friend, and it was an honor to share last weekend with you. I left with more faith than I arrived with and I learn so much from watching you do what you do… Although the best is surely ahead for you, it’s still ok to stop and say “WELL DONE” in regards to what has been. You and Holly are loved by many, keep leading the way my brother! #occupyallstreets
