The Schizophrenia Revelation – Frank Hammond

Edit: I disagree with his “fear of judgment” statement starting in Part 1, 32:19. He holds the Southern Baptist “once saved, always saved” view. So he thinks having a fear of losing your salvation (like in Hebrews 6 and 10) is a demon spirit! Jesus says to fear God who can throw us into Hell! (Luke 12:5). I think this was one of Hammond’s blind spots. On the other hand, I do believe there is an unhealthy fear of losing salvation: something Wesley called “the spirit of bondage”; it is a fear that removes you from intimacy with God, and there is no feeling of having God as your loving Father. My view, and that of Wesley’s, is that Christians should only have a healthy fear of God, of Hell, of apostasy, to keep the rebellious heart at bay, but the main theme is that God is your Father and you’re accepted.
