Exposing the Ignorance (and Lies) of a Heresy Hunter


Spencer Smith videos seem to always pop up when I look through the YouTube menu.

There are two things I’ve noticed about him and his videos that have steered me away from them.

  1. They are ALWAYS anti something or someone.
  2. His site homepage seems to be all about $$$, with links to donate and many options to purchase his merchandise.

The video below shows how these two things are linked.

The video also shows how Smith never lets truth and facts get in the way of denigrating others – because it’s easier to label countless others as heretics if you are willing to stoop to misrepresentation and lies.

My posting of this video is not an endorsement of the ministry presenting it, although many of the other videos on its site give a lot of good insight. It is also not an endorsement of any of the people mentioned in the video. I post it because it exposes the grave errors, mistakes, carelessness and outright lies that are the stock in trade of too many “discernment ministries”.

If any person or ministry deserves to be exposed as a “heretic”, then it should be done truthfully according to FACTS.

  1. I hadn’t heard of, or seen, Spencer Smith either – until now. I also hadn’t heard of, or seen, Rod Saunders until you posted a previous video link.

    Both are individuals whose sites and videos I will steer clear of in future: partly because of the biased way they both present information to support their own views and beliefs… which yes, we all tend to do as we are all human and speak from flesh much of the time.

    I was saddened Tim to read your own contribution in the comments section of the above Video – your saying To Spencer Smith everyone is a heretic. is an exaggeration.. or was that sarcasm..?

    Either way, ironic – given your own post above.

    Tim my friend, you are better than that.

  2. No exaggeration and not sarcasm.

    On YouTube Spencer Smith’s presence is about nothing other than colouring people as heretics. His tactics in doing so (and a reason why) are made clear by Rod Saunders. (Hint, its profitable)

    And I am better than what?
    Better than actually investigating the truth for myself rather than accepting the word of professional, cessationist heresy hunters?

    But then again, I understand how much you have relied on heresy hunters to colour your own views.

    I am grateful to you for the link you sent months ago “exposing” the errors of Todd White. Checking the accusations in that article, and seeing how baseless they were, woke me up to the nature of heresy hunting.
    I have no personal interest in Todd White – other than observing the ravenous wolves regularly tearing into him with baseless accusations, confirming their own nature by their fruit.

  3. I totally agree. I’m fed up of him because he appears to get sick pleasure out of pulling everyone down. He’s a hypocrite because he goes on about ‘doing the right thing in the wrong way’ yet he does the same. Exposing heresy is one thing, personally attacking brothers & sisters in Christ is another. He shows no fruit of love and is arrogant and rude. There is nobody he agrees with and he finds fault with everybody but himself. He mocks people for things that have nothing to do with spirituality, like criticising their faces. Many people who know him have said that he is not a missionary at all and only visits Kenya once a year. He spends the rest of his time slagging people off on YouTube and begging for money. He will judge singers for modernising a hymn, just because he doesn’t like it and he has even slated Billy Graham and Christine Caine. After seeking the Lord about him, my eyes were opened to how deluded this man is – that he thinks he is perfect and every famous Christian is a heretic. I see no spirit of God in him and he is not Jesus-like in any shape or form. I used to like his videos, but became more and more disturbed by his pride and hatred in his speech towards people. He is a servant of satan masquerading as an agent of light and is serving only to prove that those who are in error are not just the dodgy churches and lukewarm singers – but those who claim to be pastors sent to warn the world of christiandom about falseness – he is the epitome of falseness and appears too hard-hearted to see it. Great post!
