There are so many Christians, who are struggling to believe that God really, truly loves them, and they are trying very hard to please Him to deserve that love and salvation. They become very religious and are trying so hard to be a good Christian, so worried whether they are good enough to be saved and loved, so scared that God may dislike them or reject them, they want to deserve the love of God, but grace is not about deserving anything, grace is about getting something even if you deserve nothing.
Paul Washer explains very well, what does it mean that God loves you, and what does it mean that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you to save you.
I was contacted by one of the readers to warn people again, about so called preacher/ evangelist Torben Sondergaard, as more and more people come to realize that what he is doing is not right, and it’s very dangerous as I pointed out before. He has thousands of followers all over the world now. People MUST KNOW THE BIBLE very well and stay in the Word of God daily, they also must have discernment and love for the truth, which is being taught by the Spirit of the truth / The Holy Spirit of the True and Only, God Almighty, the God of the bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, our Savior.
Most Christians do not realize how serious the problem of deception and apostasy in Christianity in our times is, the Lord Jesus as well as Apostles warned many times to be very careful about false teachers, especially in the last days like we are now. However, most Christians do not care, are not concerned at all and they will follow anybody who proclaim to be a Christian, especially when the person does so called sings, wonders and miracles. What shocks me the most, is when a pastor or a preacher says, that everybody is deceived somehow and no churches or preachers ever teach only the truth. This is unbelievable to speak like this, as God demands from us to love the truth!
This is a very dangerous attitude as we have to be extremely careful now about whom we follow. I myself was very dramatically warned by the Holy Spirit not to follow any man but Jesus Christ alone, who is the Word of God, the bible. I was warned at the very beginning of my walk with God. I have learned because of that, to check everybody whom I find interesting to watch or listen and in this way, I was able to escape deception. I will say it again, be very careful people, do not follow anybody blindly if you do not have discernment and do not love the truth of the bible or you are just saved and do not know much yet. God said, that we MUST LOVE THE TRUTH, if we do not love the truth we are on the way to destruction because the devil only is waiting to get us into a serious error and to get lying spirits that will lead us away from the truth.
The Man of Lawlessness
…9 The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, 10 and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11 For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie,…
2 Thessalonians 2:10
Deception happens when people do not know they are deceived of course, and when someone teaches 99 percent of the truth but there is only 1% of lies / poison, this is very dangerous already, for example, when someone says that the bible is not true, and it was corrupted so it does not matter if you read it or not, or only personal experience matters, etc. It is enough to lead you astray.
The time of great apostasy and false teachings is NOW. And it is only going to get worse.
I will not write anymore about Torben, I personally cannot even listen to his false babbling, which he calls speaking in tongues, also, even if I am a proponent of deliverance as a very important ministry to help tormented people, in no way he is doing it properly, during the baptism in water, it cannot be found in the bible. Can you imagine the Lord Jesus doing it? Always look at Jesus, always compare everything to what He did and how He did it.
Nobody has ever done it in this way, also, according to the bible we are to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, which Torben does not do and denies that it is necessary.
The Great Commission
…18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”…
My personal baptism in a normal, biblical, old fashioned church was the most beautiful experience and has no comparison with the wicked, horrible ritual that Torben is doing to those people. It is utterly disgusting and shocking. It is hard to imagine to be treated like this, with his screaming and forcing demons into people to make them speak in false tongues, what a drama it is. Which of the apostles did it this way? Have you read it in the bible? Have you read that Paul or Peter were standing in water and screaming like madmen and doing what Torben is doing, to make people babble and getting demons out of them just after coming out of water? NEVER! It is demonic, devilish, sickening.
A few years ago, I also met two ladies from Torben’s group, I met them personally, but my joy and desire to cooperate with them finished very quickly, when I realized there was something wrong with their believes and actions, not to mention the healing in the street which can only lead to total discouragement, when people do not get healed.
Again, I was healed by the Lord Jesus many times, but not the way those people are doing it, this is all wrong. I am convinced that he has kundalini spirit which he transfers into people when lying hands on their heads or foreheads, and screaming and babbling into their ears. Do not follow that man and his movement. I warn you, that man is not a representative of the real, biblical Jesus Christ. His teaching is confusion and mix of various kind of errors.

This is a comment from one of his followers.
“I was part of this movement from approximately June 2015 to July 2017. I firmly believe it is a cult. I know Torben personally. I was a “green dot” on the map as a recommended contact. I know what TLR is about in depth. I left the movement because of the false gospel (works based religion), the cult-like behaviour of his followers (including the strange things they do), and Torben’s cult behaviour towards me. TLR keeps its momentum based on all the hype and sensationalism from the kickstart events and the movies. They are a cult because they believe they have the right formula for salvation, the “true gospel” – step 1 2 and 3. They do not truly believe in grace through faith (Eph 2:8-9), therefore it is works based. This causes an elitism about it which makes them believe they are better than other believers. Torben also has this radical belief that living by faith means selling everything and letting other people support you and your family. He believes this because that is what he did. He encourages this at the PTS school. We have seen many people come back confused about life and what they should be doing. The reality is God calls people differently for different purposes – Paul was a tent maker for a number of years. He also paid his way in Rome. The theology in TLR movement is extremely bad. They lean on many oneness Pentecostal heresies in many ways. Their theology behind “deliverance” is completely wrong and it leads people into bondage. The TLR signs and wonders is very questionable, none can be medically verified. I recommend people stay away from TLR movement. We have been extremely hurt by so many people when we left this cult. Praise God we are still standing and our faith in Him is stronger than ever. We just need some rest from all the drama and vicious behaviour. They won’t listen to reason. All you can do is pray for them.”
The article below from speedy deletion Wiky is worth reading, it exposes so many errors in Torben’s teaching, it is hard to believe that so many Christians do not notice it.
Warning in the media against The Last Reformation as a cult
Other ministries warning against Torben Sondergaard
Grace Community Church, the church of the well-known pastor Tim Conway, warned against Torben Sondergaard and his ministry as a cult in 2015. The same year, Lutheran Mission in Denmark warned against Torben Sondergaard’s practice of baptism as a meeting with about 350 people was held by Lutheran Mission and Torben Sondergaard practice was warned against and discussed. Secretary General of Luther Mission in Denmark, Jens Ole Christensen, sent a letter to all local leaders in the country as well as publicly stating:
“Grace in Christ is the most inner heart of the Gospel. When this is challenged, differences in teaching becomes really dangerous. That is what is at stake in this case.“
28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God,[a] which he bought with his own blood.[b] 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. 31 So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.
