After seeing families being thrown into crisis by the Hebrew Roots movement and consequently 119 Ministries, I began doing some research on my own. I have approached this with much prayer and constantly ask for wisdom from the Holy Spirit to discern the truth from the lies.
119 Ministries uses a lot of sophisticated language, throwing around Greek and especially Hebrew as if it is commonly understood today by most people. They use emotional videos which engage the senses to sensationalize their message, granted that is the point of most audio/visual media; however when dealing with teaching people, emotionalism is underhanded in my book, on par with TV commercials.
The flavor of 119 is elitist and attempts to, at the very least, demean those who oppose them and quite possible damning the same. It smells human and not at all of the same scent of Jesus in the gospels.
My hope in writing this blog is to give accurate rebuttals to both the actual articles published by 119 Ministries and also to accurately stand up to their false assumptions and ideas. My hope is that other families who are struggling to sort out their faith avoid shipwreck, keep the faith and stay hidden in Jesus Christ!
Please feel free to comment on anything and ask questions. I too am a fellow runner in this race and have struggles and weaknesses like you. But together we can search the Scriptures, focusing on what they actually say and understanding the simplicity that they contain, avoiding pitfalls and incorrect doctrine given by men. Together we can strengthen one another in love and so help build and protect the bride of Christ, His church.
Grace & Peace!
