Peddlers of Error

It’s unbelievably frustrating when I come across an author or speaker who falls into the category of a false teacher, it’s also very unsettling to know that many Christian churches push an app called RightNow Media that holds a streaming library of more than 20,000 Bible study videos for leaders to share with their people. Not only do they claim that their content is Relevant, Trustworthy Teaching but they also highlight themselves as the Christian Netflix.

We are warned in the Bible that deception will happen and it’s happening all around us.

Can you imagine? These studies and lessons are given by a slew of false teachers, many of whom side with the prosperity gospel, word of faith, health and wealth, charismatics, and also promote the enneagram.

A very close friend of mine introduced me to RightNow Media in 2020 and allowed me access to her login information so that I can have access to their library of bible studies. Considering the season that I was in I chose to listen to Bianca Juarez Olthoffs series on the book of Ruth, did she do a study like the description claimed? no. Was it entertaining? yes. I even went and bought her book but, I quickly realized while reading it that it didn’t align with scripture at all. I didn’t even make it through the second chapter. That series was the last that I had listened to until recently.

I happened upon a “study” given by Jennie Allen. Her series was somewhat engaging but as she claimed to be highlighting a book from the Bible she never really FOCUSED on scripture and if I’m being honest it was more Ted Talkish than anything. John MacArthur once said in one of his sermons, “test all teachers to scripture.” So, I Googled her name and up came article after article on how she was a false teacher and the more I read the more I found out that she surrounded herself with other wolves who are seeking to devour their prey with false doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2 Timothy 4:3-4

I scrolled the RightNow Media app and sure enough, many (if not all) should be avoided. I quickly removed the app from my phone and informed my friend of what I had found.

“DISCERNMENT is NOT knowing the difference between RIGHT and WRONG. It is knowing the difference between RIGHT and ALMOST RIGHT.”

Charles Spurgeon

I posted a picture of 5 “teachers” that are promoted heavily on RightNow Media. I’d like to bring to light the information that I’ve found regarding their false teachings.

Matt Chandler :

Bianca Juarez Olthoff:

Frances Chan:

Tony Evans:

Jennie Allen:

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

Ephesians 5:11 ESV

As I mentioned previously, many churches have joined RightNow Media, and below are just some of the churches that are shown on their website that proudly promote the app to their congregation. It makes me sick to my stomach to know that many church leaders aren’t doing their due diligence to keep Satan away from God’s children.

  1. I have RightNow media solely for the childrens shows they offer. I do watch along with my kids so if there is anything I need to address I can, but it’s better than mainstream TV. We do not use any of the teachings or Bible study originals. I got it free from my parents church.
