Exposing false teaching of John Oakes

Dr. John Oakes

In this post, I will show you the horrifying truth revealed by John Oake in his recent article “What Should I Do To Become a Christian Teacher?”.

This what he writes:

“Here is the bad news for the teacher. More than ninety percent of the time we need to hold our tongue and keep our opinion to ourselves.”

John Oakes does not want full truth to be spoken in the church but only 10% of it. When such a respected teacher as John Oakes voices his opinion, actually teaches and everyone expects full truth to be heard from him.

How the church can know the truth if bible talk leaders and elders are conspired to teach only 10% of Christianity.

Here what Jesus Christ said:

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

And God said through the prophet Hosea:

“my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge”In order for you to be saved, you must know God and his truth. You must embrace the truth of God and never depart from it. The truth the way it is must be spoken in our churches.

And then John Oakes also says:

“This is true, both because as I already stated, no one likes a know-it-all, and also because teaching is a serving role.”

“First of all, no one likes a know-it-all. Certainly no one wants to be taught by a know-it-all. More importantly, no church leader will give the “stage” to such a person. And they should not.”

Paul, Peter, James and other teachers and apostles are know-it-all people. If Paul was alive and would have ever visited us, they would never invite him because he is a know-it-all person. If God inspires someone, they will tell them to leave the church. They do not like people who tell the truth to the disciples of Christ.

Why are they conspired to conceal the truth from you?

Here what John Oakes says:

“would the Holy Spirit have you creating havoc in the local church or in the ministry to which you are speaking?”

They do not tell you the truth because they afraid your eyes will be opened and the havoc will be created. How they can control you when there is havoc in the church? If they speak 100% of truth, it will be difficult to control you.

But Jesus Christ can easily take control of the church even when there is havoc. They do not want to pass control over you to Jesus Christ. That is why I previously stated multiple times that we have no Jesus Christ in control of the church but bible talk leaders and elders are operating the church.

So what this 10% of truth gives to John Oakes? This what he says:

“My personal ministry as a Christian teacher is somewhat unique, as I do so much traveling and have taught for many different churches.”

“I have seen other teachers forget this basic aspect of the teacher’s role. They tend not to be invited back. Their skill and their passion therefore find a reduced opportunity to be expressed.”

He wants to be invited by local elders and be recognised by many, so that is why he speaks only 10% of truth. He loved this world more than God.

“I do not visit churches in order to correct all their errors. My role is to support what the leaders are doing, even when I do not completely agree with what they are doing.”

Bible talk leaders, elders, and John Oakes do not want to correct church errors. They just want to support each other in their ruling over you. They are not concerned about you but of themselves.

“Evangelism and shepherding and taking care of the physical and spiritual needs of the lost and the saved are more essential. They are higher up on the list. If this is not okay with you, then perhaps you should pursue something other than teaching.”

John Oakes gives excuse that evangelism and pastoring are more important ministries rather than speaking the truth. But this is also for the benefit of John Oakes and elders, so they will have more people under them.

When I contacted John Oakes privately a few months back he told me that he agrees with many of my points if not all, but after speaking with elders, he requested bible talk leaders and elders to drag me out from fellowship.

“If it will not help what the leaders in the local church are trying to do, whether or not what I am saying might be true, I must hold my tongue.”

John Oakes admits he serves elders rather than churches.

Bible talk leaders and elders hate me for speaking truth to you, they want me to be silent and go away from the fellowship.

Dear church, as John Oakes says:

“To teach is to serve.”

This is true. Teachers are the servants. Why do you need servants who conceal the truth from you? How can you benefit from such teachers? They rather harm you.

You must follow my example and rebuke bible talk leaders and elders publicly for concealing the truth. Be strong and courageous. Do not afraid of them. What they can do to you?

As Jesus spoke to Ephesus church, he speaks to us:

“I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false”.
