'Greater Day' with Steven Furtick

Steven Furtick's newest book, Greater, was released today. In celebration, he's been airing 'Greater Day' live on the Elevation Network, complete with Skype interviews, teachings and music.

Considering the faulty hermeneutic used by Furtick for his previous book, Sun Stand Still, I don't think it's out of line to have low expectations for this latest publication. Having read the 30-page excerpt that is available, I'm even less convinced that Greater will redeem Furtick's past interpretive errors.

At the same time, I've no doubt that this new book will be a huge hit with the seeker-driven crowd and that this "churched" generation of "Me" will consume it in droves.

A few more slightly less opinionated thoughts can be read here.

  1. Humm, so we should call this book "greater error" with its declension -2Ti 3:13 "while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived."

    welcome to the mega Churches,,,or should I say Megalomania churches of Laodicea

  2. Page 12 was it for me. If Mr. Furtick finds so many Christians unhappy with their "Christian life" perhaps it is due to his inability to rightly divide the Word of Truth. If this man has any clue as to what the life of a child of God should be like here on earth, he has yet to convey it by his preaching, teaching or his two books. Matt. 20:28 and Luke 9:48 gives God"s path to "greatness" which is not to be compared with that selfish and narsissistic foolishness presented by Furtick. Where is the Gospel in all of his rants? If he ever gave a cogent presentation of the Gospel he certainly is not now. What he is actually doing is portraying the Lord Jesus Christ to be insufficient when it comes to man's needs. Forgiveness of sin and eternal salvation is not what he speaks of, rather he speaks of satisfying the lusts of man now and somehow it will all work out in the end and heaven will be their's also. This is the same lie mankind has been treated to since the Garden of Eden.

  3. You people are so judgemental. You are so self righteous it is sickening. Steven Furtick does preach the True Gospel of forgiveness of sin and eternal salvation. I am not sure where you get your information, but I would be careful criticizing somene who has been called by God. I can assure you that your assumptions about Steven Furtick are no correct.

    1. Hi John,

      Ignoring the irony that you are judging us by calling us judgmental and self righteous, I'd like to point you to this post. I pray that you will listen to the audio that is linked at the end of that post.
