“Name it and claim it” heresy, insist[s] that believers can manipulate reality simply through faith-filled declarations.
(The Dissenter) A popular heresy among charismatic false teachers is little-god theology, or the belief that we as humans carry within us the potential to become God, or divine like God. This is not only a heresy found among charismatics, however, it is the underlying teaching of Mormonism–that our future as believers are to partake in the divinity of God and become gods ourselves.
Adherents of this false teaching also believe that they have the power to speak what they will into existence, just like God. They believe they have the power to command storms to halt in place, they have the power to cure widespread diseases, and they have the power to stop temporal sufferings and poverty, just by the power of their “positive confession.” And, of course, this includes healing the sick.
