The "Kingdom Theology" Counterfeit, Part Three
Victor Paul Wierwille's Teaching:
"The Way of Life or Death"
-- Jeff, Sunday 03-20-2011, 11:13 am CDT --


Picture of Victor Paul Wierwille Listen to Dr. Wierwille's world-famous teaching, during which he whanged the lecturn so hard that the Way Ministry's presidential seal, that always hung from the front of it when he taught, fell off and clattered onto the floor.

As you will hear for yourself, what he became so animated over was Living New Testament translation of Romans 13:1-8, which was published in paperback form as Reach Out, as produced by the editors of Campus Life Magazine of Youth for Christ International during the 1970s. Which as Dr. Wierwille covers, was an organization that at the time was basically run by, "Billy Bright and Billy Graham. Billy Bright is head of Campus Crusade, and he's the yokel that is financed by Billy Graham, and the two are always in cahoots."

As you'll hear, the point at which Dr. Wierwille really whangs on the lecturn occurs when he's covering their translation, below, which as quoted reads:

Romans 13:1-8
"Obey the government for God is the one who put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow. For the policeman does not frighten people who are doing right, but those doing evil will always fear him. So if you don't want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well. The policeman is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong of course you should be afraid, for he will have you punished. He is sent by God for that very purpose. Obey the laws then, for two reasons. First, to keep you from being punished, and second, just because you know you should. Pay your taxes too, for these same two reasons. For government workers need to be paid so they can keep on doing God's work serving you. Pay everyone whatever he ought to have. Pay your taxes and import duties gladly. Obey those over you, and give honor and respect to all those to whom it's due. Pay all your debts, except the debt of love for others."

"The Way of Life or Death," Victor Paul Wierwille, March 21, 1976

Talk about a wide-open door for the "Kingdom Theology" crowd to waltz through, promoting their counterfeit strategy of Christians taking over the "Kingdom of Politics" in the name of God. Like Dr. Wierwille used to say, that's a dandy.

By the way, all of Dr. Wierwille's Sunday Night Service teachings, as they were distributed without copyright on audio cassettes while he was alive, are now available online for both download and embedding at The Internet Archive.

It is a great resource.
