Great Sermon! Great sermon! First time i saw Torben something inside me did not feel right, but at first i thought it may just be my own heart since he said something my flesh did not like. But after i've watched some of his teachings and paid attention to what he says. i've come to realize that he adds to the Gospel! The Gospel according to him is "Repetance, baptism in water and then reciving the Holy Ghost", something he repeats over and over again, and emphazises. Sometimes he mention the cross and christ, but just as a side note. The focus is on repantance and baptism then reciving of the spirit. Many times he do not even mention faith and the cross. He always say that baptism is part of the "full gospel". as he many times say "That is the full gospel".
Baptism is not a response and something you do because you have been forgiven but something that is necessarily in order to be saved, according to Torben. It ends up being a workbased salvation and with that many other things come and false teachings come creeping.
Something about it remindes me of Catholicism and he uses the waterbaptism as something magical for doing excorism too.
It may sound right but the deception is can be very subtle. My brother is caught up in this movement and he have began to focus very much on his own w

Maybe a bit too far but Torben does err I examined 22 lessons from the Turban's online Pioneer School and found both very good staff and very concerning (plain wrong). He doesn't say baptism alone saves us but he definitely adds baptism to repentance and baptism with the Spirit as a separate event that HAS to be confirmed by speaking in tongues (all true believers have to speak in tongues). Another big problem is the promise of the Gospel: he insists that the Gospel promises salvation from sin AND salvation from sickness. Therefore (according to Torben) believers are never send to just preach the Gospel. All believers are sent to offer everyone healing by the power of Jesus, casting out demons, the gospel message and the gift of the Spirit. There are also other, problems both in theology and practice of this in my view, born again and zealous but mistaken man.

Making Broad Assumptions Simply watching a video is not enough study to make a valid sermon about the "false prophecy" of the last reformation. Not once does Torben ever state that baptism is the only thing necessary for the forgiveness of sin. In fact, the last reformation is very Christ centered. Perhaps you should actually look into the teachings and not just watch a video of high lights.
