The American preacher Thurman Schrivner has been invited to «Forum» in Bergen and the Norwegian TV station «Visjon Norge». But His Third Wave preaching about sin and sickness has upset even Charismatics.
«Sickness is caused by sin. When we obey God, we do not have to be sick. That we can be healthy, rich and successful. Sickness is a cruse that has its root in curses that might have its origin back ten generations».
This is some of the preaching that has been presented by the American faith healer Thurman Schrivner on his visit to Bergen in Norway. This unhealthy preaching has been transmitted on TV, by the station «Visjon Norge», and presented in the former Cinema Hall «Forum».
The preacher have been welcomed by people who seek Miracles and Healings, but even Charismatic leader is Norway warns about the message from Schrivner.
– I believe in the promises of healing in the name of Jesus, but it is important to up hold that our sins are forgiven regardless if we are physical healthy or sick. This man puts stones to the burdens of sick people. This is a wicked message, and true Christians should present the true gospel about forgiveness of sins, explains Åge Åleskjær. He underlines that Christians do ripe the fruits of Jesus death and resurrection, but that there is no automatic answer in form of good health and success.

Third Wave preachers like Thurman Schrivner do not represent Jesus of Nazareth. They preach a different gospel, that has a dark and very evil flip side. Because their false claims taint people as cursed when they fell sick and die.
Sin might be the reason for sickness. But Christians should not put a curse on their own head, by cursing sick people in the name of «Jesus». The main reason for sickness is pollution in a fallen World. And we shall all depart from her caused by one sickness or the other.
Jesus loves all repented sinners. With or without all their limbs intact. Jesus said that it is better to end up in Heaven with one eye missing, than to end up in Hell «healthy and wealthy».
That such false teachers and false prophets are invited to «Forum» in Bergen is alarming. People who listen to such messages are under constant danger of being deceived.
Please also switch off TV-channels like Vision Norge, who give such preachers a plattform to present their counterfeit gospel.
What is at stake her?
This kind of messages brands Paul as a man without enough faith. Because He fell sick. Paul had a torn in his flesh, and Jesus refused to heal him.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
If grace is made perfect in weakness, its deadly wrong to preach the health and wealth gospel. Its a false gospel.
Paul him self most likely had an eye sickness.
Even though my illness was a trial to you, you did not treat me with contempt or scorn. Instead, you welcomed me as if I were an angel of God, as if I were Christ Jesus himself. What has happened to all your joy? I can testify that, if you could have done so, you would have torn out your eyes and given them to me. Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?
He had an illness in his eye. Not so strange, he spoke about people being willing to give him their eyes.
