Richard Bartholomew reports on the return of an old friend. Rick Joyner, dominionist preacher in charge of MorningStar Ministries, is having a little get together, and guess who one of the speakers is …
Mike Warnke – “I’ve known Mike for many years. When I first heard him speak, I thought he was the funniest man I had ever heard. We need humor, and we’ll need more of it as these times unfold. Yet we also need the other great devotion Mike has—saving the lost and delivering those who are in bondage.” ~Rick Joyner
As Lorette wrote a few years back, Warnke is the epitome of the liars for Jesus. His lurid tales of being a high priest of Satan were debunked by Cornerstone magazine in 1991. But Bartholomew has noticed that Joyner is rehabilitating Warnke’s reputation.Just something to remember as we anticipate Mark Driscoll’s implosion. Even the worst, most absurd ones never really go away.
As an aside, I’d love to see a copy of The Todd Phenomena by Hicks and Lewis. John Todd was the another one of the Christian conspiracist hucksters, albeit one who may have been clinically paranoid. Apparently this book was his downfall, and in a glorious bit of irony Mike Warnke wrote the foreword. He told people, “be careful of those who take the name of the Lord in vain.”
