RE: Joseph Prince
It is one thing to have a different interpretation and it is all together something else to twist the scripture or flat out say that the bible says something it does not even say.
You are giving men the glory for their interpretation instead of giving God the glory for opening your understanding.
That is something that these teachers/preachers will not correct you on either they want you to keep giving them glory for their teaching that is how they make their money..people are moved by the emotion of what is being said and not God.
Quote:people like Joseph Prince that help us interpret the meaning of scripture. Even Jesus had to explain to the Apostles
That is right Jesus gave them the understanding not men.We do not get our understanding from men but God/Jesus.If you don't understand something you don't look for another preacher to explain it, you look to God to help you understand.
We get our interpretation,our meaning,our understanding from God,not men.
What I have seen with Joseph Prince and others,is that they quote a little bit of scripture,often times not even the whole verse and then there are pages and pages and pages of their speculation and most of this speculation can not be proven at all or it is completely contrary to what the bible says.
If what they say is contrary to the word of God then they are simply preaching their own brand of gospel.
People's discernment are different because some are not being led by the Holy Spirit.Some are led by emotion.Some are led by other seducing spirits.Some are led by greed.Some are led by pride.Some are led by self righteousness.Some are led by notoriety and popularity.Some people are led by other people.If the blind lead the blind they both fall into a ditch.
There are many things that can and do hinder a person's discernment, level of spiritual maturity is another big hinder-er.I think God also tests our willingness to be led by His Spirit alone and some times we fail that test by allowing ourselves to be led by emotion,greed,pride,other people and other spirits.
How do you know if someone's discernment is correct or if they are really being led by the Holy Spirit?
Does what they say and do agree with the word of God,not just a little,not just here and there,if they are claiming to be a representative of God then everything they say should agree with what God said,period.
I can't comment on what Kenneth Hagin preaches.I would have to look into what he teaches and compare it to scripture before I comment on Him.

Bama, I had spent more than 30 years in tongues,healing and the name it, claim it prosperity gospel.I was not leery of anything until God slowly started revealing His true self to me,His true gospel,the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.(2John 1:9)
