Pink, A.W. - Another Gospel

Excerpt:
Another Gospel

Arthur W. Pink

Satan is not an initiator but an imitator. God has an only begotten Son-the Lord Jesus, so has Satan-"the son of Perdition" (2 Thess.2:3). There is a Holy Trinity, and there is likewise a Trinity of Evil (Rev. 20:10). Do we read of the "children of God," so also we read of "the children of the wicked one" ( Matthew 13:38). Does God work in the former both to will and to do of His good pleasure, then we are told that Satan is "the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience" (Eph 2:2). Is there a "mystery of godliness" (1 Tim. 3:16), so also is there a "mystery of iniquity" (2 Thess 2:7). Are we told that God by His angels "seals" His servants in their foreheads (Rev 7:3), so also we learn that Satan by his agents sets a mark in the foreheads of his devotees (Rev. 13:16). Are we told that "the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God" (1 Cor. 2:10), then Satan also provides his "deep things" (Greek-Rev. 2:24). Did Christ perform miracles, so also can Satan (2 Thess. 2:9). Is Christ seated upon a throne, so is Satan (Greek-Rev. 2:13). Has Christ a Church, then Satan has his "synagogue" (Rev 2:9). Is Christ the Light of the world, then so is Satan himself "transformed into an angel of light" (2 Cor. 11:14). Did Christ appoint "apostles," then Satan has his apostles, too (2 Cor. 11:13). And this leads us to consider: "The Gospel of Satan."

Satan is the arch-counterfeiter. The Devil is now busy at work in the same field in which the Lord sowed the good seed. He is seeking to prevent the growth of the wheat by another plant, the tares, which closely resembles the wheat in appearance. In a word, by a process of imitation he is aiming to neutralize the Work of Christ. Therefore, as Christ has a Gospel, Satan has a gospel too; the latter being a clever counterfeit of the former. So closely does the gospel of Satan resemble that which it parodies, multitudes of the unsaved are deceived by it.

About the Author:Arthur Walkington Pink (1 April 1886 – 15 July 1952)
Arthur Walkington Pink (1 April 1886 – 15 July 1952) was a Christian evangelist and Biblical scholar known for his staunchly Calvinist and Puritan-like teachings.

Pink was born in Nottingham, England on 1 April, 1886 and became a Christian in his early 20's. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (an occult gnostic group popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.

Desiring to grow in knowledge of the Bible, Pink immigrated to the United States to study at Moody Bible Institute. In 1916 he married Vera E. Russell, who was from Kentucky. However, he left after just two months for Colorado, then California, then Britain. From 1925 to 1928 he served in Australia, including as pastor of two congregations from 1926 to 1928, when he returned to England, and to the United States the following year. He eventually pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina.

In 1922 he started a monthly magazine entitled Studies in Scriptures which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide, though only to a relatively small circulation list of around 1,000.

In 1934 Pink returned to England, and within a few years turned his Christian service to writing books and pamphlets. Pink died in Stornoway, Scotland on 15 July, 1952. The cause of death was anemia.

After Pink's death, his works were republished by the Banner of Truth Trust and reached a much wider audience as a result. Biographer Iain Murray observes of Pink, "the widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century." His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers' hearts on biblical living. Yet, even today, Pink is left out of most biographical dictionaries and overlooked in many religious histories.

Dake, Finis J. - Another Time, Another Place, Another Man

 

About the Author:Finis Jennings Dake (1902-1987) was an American Pentecostal minister and evangelist

Finis Jennings Dake (1902-1987) was an American Pentecostal minister and evangelist known primarily for his voluminous writings on the subjects of Pentecostal (or Charismatic) Evangelical Christian spirituality and Premillennial Dispensationalism: his most well known work being his Dake Annotated Reference Bible.

Dake’s work was arguably the first popularly received study bible produced by someone from a Pentecostal theological framework. Previous similar efforts were invariably produced from ardent anti-pentecostalists (such as C.I.Scofield’s Study Bible).

Dake received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at the age of 17. Dake claimed that he also received a 'special anointing' that allowed him to quote major portions of Scripture from memory. Dake preached his first sermon in 1925 and was ordained by the Assemblies of God denomination two years later. After working as a pastor and evangelist in Texas and Oklahoma, he moved to Zion, Illinois, in order to become the pastor of the Christian Assembly Church. In Zion, he also founded Shiloh Bible Institute, which ultimately merged with Central Bible Institute and which was located in the home formerly owned by controversial faith healer John Alexander Dowie.

During Dake’s ministry in Zion, he was the center of a controversy. In 1937, he was convicted of violating the Mann Act by willfully transporting 16-year-old hitchhiker Emma Barelli across the Wisconsin state line “for the purpose of debauchery and other immoral practices.” Dake pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months in a Milwaukee jail. Though he maintained his innocence of intent, Dake subsequently lost ordination with the Assemblies of God.

His writings have been the source of some controversy within certain Christian circles: He has been accused of advocating a nonstandard interpretation of the Trinity, as well as other controversial viewpoints and beliefs such as the gap theory, adoptionism, and even racial segregation. For example, concerning the question if Jesus existed "in relationship" as God the Father's "Son" before the manger in Bethlem (the question of the eternal sonship of Jesus), he writes in the notes of the annotated reference bible "As God, the person we now know of as Jesus Christ had no beginning, was not begotten, was not a Son, and did not come into being . . . .but as man and as God's Son He was not eternal, He did have a beginning, He was begotten, this being the same time Mary had a Son. Therefore, the doctrine of eternal sonship of Jesus Christ is irreconcilable to reason, is unscriptural, and is contradictory to itself" (p. 139).

Besides the Dake Study Bible, he is known for the two-year Bible course, "God's Plan for Man."

In spite of the critics his influence among contemporary Charismatic and Pentecostal should not been underestimated. Popular televangelist Benny Hinn has credited Finis Dake with helping to mold his theological beliefs. Indeed his influence has been so strong that at least two popular Pentecostal evangelists have been accused of actually plagiarizing his writings: Kenneth Hagin and Jimmy Swaggart.
