JOYCE MEYER: Is her word to be trusted?


In recent days I posted a short item on Facebook directing people to video of JOYCE MEYER ‘expounding’ Romans 4:17. I prefaced the link to the video with these comments –

‘Some people express surprise when I identify JOYCE MEYER as a false teacher (and that’s apart from the fact that as a woman she should not be exercising the ‘teaching role’ as she does) so perhaps this video clip, with added comments, may help confirm my assessment of her’.

The following link will take you to an article that includes video of her ‘exposition’ of Romans 4:17. This is the link –

You Can Call Things Into Existence Like God Does Says Joyce Meyer

My own Facebook post was shared by a number of people and one of those shares attracted these comments from a lady – 

‘The power of life and death is in the tongue. We create with our words. Either good or bad. It’s a good message. Who put the negative critical comments over the top????’ I responded to the lady who posted those comments as follows –

Hello xxxxx,
As the one who made the introductory remarks, I hope you won’t mind if I respond to your comments. Just by way of a general introduction the fact that JOYCE MEYER is exercising a ‘ministry’ that is not sanctioned by the Word of God should be neither minimised nor overlooked.

Then, in relation to the specific topic that she addressed in the video there are several helpful articles that show that her teaching is in error – here are just two of many – 

What is meant by “call those things which are not as though they were”?

Speak Those Things… The Word of Faith Heretic Theology

(helpful despite a couple of typos near the conclusion).

Going back to JOYCE MEYER in general, the error in this video is just one of many serious errors that she teaches and this link highlights a number of them –

Finally, this link will take you to a ‘warning’ article that I myself wrote concerning a visit JOYCE MEYER made to my part of the world here in Northern Ireland–

I hope you will take time to visit the links and pray you will find them informative and helpful.

Joyce Meyer also addressed this ‘power in our words’ heresy in her Daily Devotional of 26 June 2018 which can be viewed on the next link – the crucial false guidance to note is when she wrote – ‘You MUST have a positive vision for your life… Think and speak about your future in a positive way, according to what GOD has placed in your HEART’ –

Jeremiah 17:9 would instruct us to be extremely wary of our ‘heart’ and the exhortation of the Psalmist in Psalm 119:105 is God’s instruction for daily guidance and dovetails well with the guidance found in Proverbs 3:5-6.

In closing, perhaps I could also give links to two other articles that folks may find helpful if they are trying to weigh up whether or not Joyce Meyer’s word can or should be trusted. These are the links and I do believe that overall, they contain helpful information.
