my faith foundation by calvinism

His statement of faith http://www.awmi.net/about_us/statement_of_faith seems orthodox, but it far too brief to really understand his positions on salvation, election, and the perseverance of the saints.

EDIT: I have removed reference to a link I included in the original post. I researched this site and find that the one who claims to expose false teachers is himself a great distance from orthodox Christianity.

You can use Google to search for "Andrew Wommack" and receive a huge amount of information, but you will need to evaluate it for yourself.

I edited my original post to remove the link that claimed that Andrew Wommack is a false teacher. As I said then, I was not familiar with that site. I have now researched it and find that I disagree with 90% of its content. Please forgive me for including information that I believe to be false.

In your original post, you stated that you hold to Calvinist doctrine. From what I have seen, Andrew Wommack does not.

He has included his Bible commentary on his website http://www.awmi.net/bible . You could review a few passages and determine for yourself what he believes.

Andrew Wommack is an unschooled (he never attended Bible School or Seminary), self taught (instead he spent years just reading the Bible and praying), Bible believing minister. He does not, therefore, follow any systematic theological perspective. He is not a Calvinist, but believes and preaches the same message that Paul expounds in the New Testament which includes perseverance of the saints, holiness, etc. I have read a lot of his material and find the vast majority to be sound and biblically based. He preaches what we pentecostals call the full gospel - but does not consider himself to be a pentecostal either.

Yes, Thanks Brother, I will tell the truth for my friend.

Thank you for your honest perspective on Andrew Wommack.  I believe you speak the truth.  He is a wonderful holy man of God.  I've hope he's not Calvinist.

I would caution you against statements like these.  They are inflammatory to those of us who are Calvinist.

Oh goody - another "I am of Paul, I am of Peter, I am of Apollo" conversation!

A quick read of his materials will show that his theology is an interesting mix of Calvinist and Arminian perspectives. This is not a criticism just observing that he does not fit comfortably in either camp. He also holds strongly to an experiential perspective like some of the early pentecostals.

I didn’t think threads like this were within the forum guidelines.  So as to not contravene the rules, I will keep my comments within what I understand those guidelines to be.  That said, I would absolutely love if Faithlife, through the Vyrso ebook ecosystem, would carry Andrew’s books.  I would stop buying them from Kindle/Amazon in a flash!

And by the way, I have just recently graduated from the first-year online certificate program with Charis Bible College, of which Andrew Wommack is the founder and where he taught a half-dozen of my first year courses.  I can tell you that he truly knows the Word of God.  Within Andrew's own commentary series, “The Living Commentary”, Andrew references a number of the resources/commentaries available at Logos.

I think this kind of discussion is accepted as long as we play nicely :-) 

Just searched my library and:


Basic Search for "Andrew Wommack"

Hyper-Grace: Exposing the Dangers of the Modern Grace Message 10 hits in 4 articles

A Place of Healing 1 hit in 1 article

Static Jedi: The Art of Hearing God Through the Noise 2 hits in 1 article

Themelios: Volume 35, No. 3, November 2010 2 hits in 2 articles

Exported from Logos Bible Software, 08:42 p.m. 28 July 2015.

So he is at least quoted in Logos.

Yes, playing nice is always good!  Hey, by the way Andrew is also heavily quoted in Gary Everett's "Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures (64 vols.)", available in Logos.  Gary is the director of Andrew Wommack's ministry efforts in Uganda.  Gary's commentary is pretty decent and happens to be on sale with Logos during the month of July for $149.99.

Yes

Thanks, Wayne.  I like Everett's commentary-he pulls from many sources.  I have Andrew Wommack's commentary via other software.

You can rest assured Andrew Womack is NOT a Calvinist. His theology is on the opposite end. He is an Armenianist.

Armenianist (a member of the Armenian Church) or Arminianist!! Its funny how one letter can make all the difference.
