Kenneth Copeland, false prophet

Posted on May 7, 2013 at 7:24am 8 Comments

I responded to another blog post which a brother entitled "A great read!  The Blessing of the Lord Maketh Rich and He Adds No Sorrow to It by Kenneth Copeland."  Amazingly, after I provided two messages with ample evidence that the late Kenneth Hagin, founder of the word-faith movement, and Kenneth Copeland, his disciple, are false prophets, those messages were deleted from that blog. 

 

Odd that a Christian would want to suppress the truth.  Jesus Christ said, "I am…

GLORY TO GOD anthology

Posted on June 16, 2009 at 6:40pm 2 Comments

Back in 2000 and 2001 I published two GLORY TO GOD comic books, 28 pages each, black-and-white. Now a 100 page anthology is available from Calvary Comics, reprinting these along with 40 pages of additional material in a single volume.



This perfectbound comics anthology features stories from the Bible, historical accounts (Reformation era), stories behind famous hymns, and modern-day testimonies (authorized) of great men of God from various nations.

Alec Stevens here. Calvary Comics is the name of my publishing imprint. A dear friend and sibling in Christ once expressed concern, with the utmost confidentiality and gentleness, that the name could be misconstrued as irreverent. "There is nothing comical about Calvary," this friend stated. I quite agree.

The term comics can be a misnomer if the narrative art, be it in strip or magazine/book format, is not humorous in nature. My friend Bruce Bezaire has coined the term…

Hello,

I wanted to see if you would be interested in a link exchange with your website. You can learn about the two projects I am currently working on here:

Take care and let me know!

Thanks for the birthday greeting, Alec. Still keeping busy on the Z Graphic Novels. I've been staying away from most forums (CC.NET, this CCAS one and the Yahoo Groups) for a variety of reasons, but I do check in regularly on Facebook.

Thanks for remembering Alec! I'm glad you told me about this site too. Keep up the great work!

Thanks Alec! I definitely learned a great deal from the classes I had with you. I remember Bruno hounding you to teach us more about storytelling, composition, anatomy, and other aspects of comics(something which I'm very thankful for today). In my opinion, you really picked up the slack for some of the other less knowledgeable teachers at the school. Of all the information I learned at the school, 75% of it was from you. As far as my professional career...I can't complain too much. I haven't been all that satisfied with the projects I've worked on, but its been good experience. After my current book is completed I'm planning to branch out to either Marvel or DC or possibly a French publisher. I'm also hoping to do some creator-owned projects in the next few years.

Another thing I want to do is something that can be a witness to people(which is how I came across this site). I've been a Christian essentially all my life, but in the last year I've actually become more serious about it and I really want to use my talents to further the message of Jesus. I'm not really sure what I want to do yet. The tough thing to me is deciding between having the book be overtly religious or just having an underlying Christian message(like C.S. Lewis). I just want to make sure it gets in the hands of people that don't believe in Christ. What are your thoughts on this? That's great that your fifth book is coming out soon! Money's a little tight right now for me, but I need to pick up a copy of Sadhu Sundar Singh at some point...It looks beautiful and I'm interested in reading the story. I remember you showing our class a few of the pages from that back in the day :) Anyway, hope you're doing well!

Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:
"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased."
