Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of ethings not seen. Hebrews 11:1

"The world's fastest-growing false religion tells us that our faith is a "force," and the words we speak have the power to create something new. The Word of Faith proponents promise we can obtain health, wealth, success, and more if we simply have enough faith."


"Word-Faith," the supporters of this movement believe that faith works like a mighty power or force. Through faith, we can obtain anything we want -- health, wealth, success, whatever. However, this force is only released through the spoken word. As we speak the words of faith, power is discharged to accomplish our desires. Kenneth Hagin's theme, as found in his booklet
How to Write Your Own Ticket with God, can be summarized as follows (Christianity in Crisis, pp. 74-75)  (Source)
