Anyone familiar with Pastor Thurman Scrivner?
« on: Tue Jul 19, 2011 - 02:01:02 »
I'm just wondering if anyone here knows or knows about Pastor Thurman Scrivner of Justin, Texas?  Don't know if I'm allowed to refer to his website but if you Google his name you'll find it.  I would just like to hear what others think about his teaching, etc.    ::tippinghat::

Tell me more, please.  Why do you say that?  Is none of what he claims that he does true?  How did you find out about him?  Have you been there?   ::shrug::

Why don't you research him on the internet? I always do that when I want to know something about a particular movement or new leader.

 ::smile::    Because the internet is so full of lies.  I was wondering if anyone had personal knowledge of that ministry.   Antwrites answered my post but not with any knowledge, just cheap shot accusations, then when I answered that post with questions they never did reply and I've yet to see another post by that person.    ::pondering::  I think antwrites is a more than one identity poster.

 Thanks for answering and I would look on the internet, but as I said, I have learned not to trust much of what they say about people.  Just like antwrites who had nothing to back up what he/she said.

From what I've seen on Scrivner's website, it looks like it's all about him.

That's about the worst thing any church or preacher can do. I'm not interested in looking much deeper.

I agree, that does not look nor sound good.  Kind of like the pastors who think the congregation are 'theirs'.

Well to be fair to antwrites, you did ask what people thought about him - and he gave his opinion.
I wouldn't say that the internet is full of lies...of course you have to have discernment as to what is true and what isn't, but there are a lot of godly people who write articles that are true, but might not be what people want to hear. Sometimes these articles are based on their experiences, but also on hearing the preacher-in-question's sermons and then basing their opinion on that.

If he has a site where he states what he believes and if he has youtube videos where you can see him in action then that would be a good start.

Have you ever been to his church yourself? I haven't heard of him until now.

I am familiar with Pastor Thurman Scrivner.

I registered on this forum specifically to respond to your sincere question, Lavender. So, I don't know if this board allows private messaging, but if so, I would be glad to correspond with you "offline" if you have further questions.

My walk with God has strengthened immensely since I first heard him preach, and that even after having been a Christian for nearly 24 years as an adult active in the various churches I attended over that period.

Since hearing him for the first time 5 to 6 years ago, I have literally listened to hundreds of his messages. Yes, you read that right. I have also heard him speak in meetings or attended the church he pastors near Argyle, TX.

You are correct about the internet and slanderous people. I have read "reviews" of Pastor Scrivner and the negative ones are all about the same: they lump him in with so-called word of faith, prosperity, name-it-claim it preachers with the typical generalized attacks. For the record, I used to do that also: write people off by association rather than scrutinize and study what they teach compared to the bible, and actually look at the true fruits of their ministries.

He teaches the truth straight out of the bible. If you don't like something he teaches, you will find yourself having a problem with God's word, not Thurman. And his fruit has real people's names on it.

If you knew the man, and I have met him on multiple occasions, you would know that he is a humble man, a man of integrity, who lives within simple means. His VERY modest house that he built himself, some people refer to as a tin-barn. He gives away everything at every meeting. Nothing is for sale. He truly demonstrates the freely received-freely give principle.

If you went to his website, [deleted]you would find all messages downloadable for free under the Order Teachings section. Instead of downloading, you could have CDs or DVDs mailed to you AT NO CHARGE! The orders will be shipped free, postage-paid to ANY PART OF THE PLANET. Yes, free.

No book sales, etc.  The only thing money-wise I am aware of is the front page ad for a satellite system from GLC who have graciously hosted his programs--as a return favor to them.

I don't know what someone meant when they said his internet pages are all about him. I don't see that. He is a man with a message, and that message is Jesus and the fact that Jesus STILL saves, heals and delivers.

The first message I heard was a CD given to us from a friend who attended a Bill Gothard meeting where Thurman spoke one weekend. It is called God's Power. It is mostly his testimony of a major miracle involving his grand daughter who should have died in an extremely car accident. If anyone can listen to this message and not be moved/inspired to believe God to do the impossible, he is dead to the things of God.

You can find this message on his Order Teachings page if you scroll down. The order form is only for physical media, so just scroll down past that. It is alphabetical. right click to save the MP3s or left click to listen online.

I have been copying this CD and giving it away for 5 years. 99% positive feedback. I am still praying for the 1 percent!

As a Southern Baptist for more than 20 years, having been a deacon in the church as well as an adult
Sunday School teacher, he challenged my "pet" ideas/beliefs right off the bat. All I can say is, "thanks, I needed that!" Everyting he teaches is right there in the bible, but the SB churches I attended and taught in never touched so many of those powerful promises of God. Honestly, I thought I knew the bible. I was just scratching the surface. Five years later, I still am.

As I said, feel free to message me if you would like to continue the discussion. I hope I am wrong, but I don't feel the freedom to continue here given the tone of the previous messages.

God bless you.

PS one of the first things I learned from Pastor Scrivner was Luke 11:13. No one ever told me to ask that! But praise God, I do every day now and my life has been transformed.

Hello, brother McCabe, so glad you're here.    ::smile::    I did try to message you but was unable to reach you.  I will keep trying.  Good post. Thank you, and Yah bless.

i know it's not been commented on for awhile, and I joined this board JUST so I could comment about Pastor Thurman. I know him personally, and have been to Dallas for ministry once and have seen him in Virginia 2-3 times preaching. My wife was healed of asthma because through this man's ministry. I have seen the relationship between sin and sickness in the Bible and have seen FIRST HAND how I am chastened by the Lord with sickness and disease because of disobedience. I have seen it scores of times now in my life.....me and my wife and children. My faith has grown like crazy listening to him preach. I would advise anyone wanting to know more of God's word to listen to him preach. EVERYTHING he preaches is based on the Word. If you're sick and afflicted, especially, he is the one to listen to. Would love to share more if you'd like. I am so thankful the Lord introduced me to this man's ministry.

God bless..

Yes he is a very strong WORD preacher!!  If you can't handle the whole truth you might not want to listen to him because he will tell you how it is.  There is no grey area with him.  He teaches on the root sin problem to sickness.  Several people have been healed while he was preaching not even in prayer lines the truth of the word sets them free.  He has the hidden answer to breast cancer, which is a sin root cause.
His granddaughter was healed with no operations at Baylor Medical after being in a head on crash at 70 mph.  Her eyes were detached and so was her brain stem.  If you want healing he is the one I'd call.  And to those who judge him by a website Satan will do the same for you at judgement day he will be an accuser so you might want to repent and ask God to forgive you and bless instead of create division.

Hello Lavender, I got saved in 2007 at the age of 48 years old after listening to Pastor Thurman's teaching.  I can tell you that I was as lost as anyone could possibly be - and I had been in the Baptist church for 15 years when this happened!  I've NEVER met a man of such great faith as Pastor T.  I also never met anyone who loves Jesus as much as this man.

I had the opportunity to spend a few days with Thurman and his wife Cheryl back in 2007 (about 6 months after I got saved).  They came to Atlanta to teach what he calls a "healing school".    I consider Thurman to be my spiritual father.

I also just got back from Justin last weekend.  I went there because I was so hungry to be around people of faith.  Thurman and his entire staff were so kind to me.  It was an awesome weekend.  I also got to hear Howard Pittman speak that weekend.  If you've never heard of him, Google his name and listen to his testimony on Youtube.

Feel free to email me if you want to know more.

Jesus IS Lord.

Yes I know his stepson personally and Thurman is a fake. This man's girlfriend was my best friend. She died from disease related to cigarettes smoking. All Thurman Scrivner ever did was tell her it was sin and if she would just accept his personal version of Christianity could she be a saved. This guy is a fake and a lunatic like David Koresh. Mr. Scribner walks around his house all day saying Praise the Lord hundreds of times. He has a compound fully-equipped with a weird compound which includes dorm style housing that connects directly to Scrivner's personal house. How creepy and disgusting is that? And its almost completely empty and out in the middle of nowhere. To you other lost people,  the Scripture teaches that Satan knows every word of the Bible and warns us repeatedly of false prophets. My favorite thing about him is he already predicted the end of the world a few years ago which of course did not happen. Run, don't walk away from this guy and his teachings. I can say all of this because not only did he add to the suffering of one of the truly, authentically kindest, most generous, loving and caring friend I've ever know by judging her and acting as if he could deny her salvation because she saw him for what he was but he condemned her with his words. There is no real Christianity in this behavior as it certainly isn't Christ-like. He asked a question and I answered him honestly. I only joined to do so. My friend was neglected to death by the stepson in my humble opinion so I will cancel my membership now. I have no intention of listening to anything negative from anyone, but I hope to spare someone else collateral damage. My friend was a wonderful person who did not deserve to be used to death for her disability money by a man who won't get a job. This is the guy Scrivner enables. And by the way Scrivner is a millionairre he needs no donations. He is the Devil in disguise.

Thurman Scrivner teaches you that all sickness and disease is rooted in sin. It is according to the Word of the Lord. You see it in Deuteronomy 28 under the curses, you also see it in the new testament - in 1John for example, we are told that as we walk in the Light the Blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. So you could be born again in the Spirit and yet have sickness in your body if you are not walking with the Lord.

Mr. Scrivner's message is not popular with the crowd that wants "grace" to heal them even if they are not obeying the Lord. At this point I am going to deviate to focus on an important area. I was saved by the Lord out of a pagan culture which was very involved in the spiritual. From that background I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the enemy is very deceptive, and can "heal" to deceive and continue to keep a person in bondage. If the holiness of the Lord and His character are not preached, and you see healing they are NOT of Him. Matthew - chapter 7 clearly tells you this. This is why the Lord never told us to judge who are of Him by the miracles. He told us to test them for His Character in their lives. We are to discern the spirits - 1John 4:1. Many people who are into the "hyper grace - I can do as I want" doctrine will tell you they are being judged, if you tell them, they are not honoring the Lord in some area of their life.

So back to Thurman Scrivner. Before I listened to him, I had a personal experience with sickness and healing that taught me, that his message on this particular area of sin and sickness was true. What happened to me was that the Lord told me very clearly not to speak to a particular woman whose spirit I discerned was off. However I felt sorry for her as she was an older woman, reminded me of my mom etc. so I continued to speak to her. One day I fell very sick, fever, shivers etc. and I asked the Lord why I was sick. I had an understanding that in Jesus is no darkness (includes the work of the enemy and sickness) and I should not be sick if I was in Him. I immediately got the Answer. The Lord told me that He told me to stop talking to that woman and I had continued. I repented, and the most amazing thing was I was instantly healed.

Many people don't want to repent or humble themselves before the Lord and they want to be healed. No human being is the healer. If you expect to be healed by the Lord you have to obey His Will regarding healing. Condemning any preacher because you don't want to repent and or change your lifestyle:

- in the words you speak (Proverbs 18:20-21) or
- the things you do or think (Galatians 6:7-9, Proverbs 23:7, Romans 12:2),

is foolishness. You are condemning the Lord in opposing His Will, not the Preacher- the Messenger of the Lord.

I am not Pentecostal however,  I will say that in my personal opinion a pastor who paints a picture of the God who as Jesus told his disciples,  Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay, (Matthew 10:8), will I have no doubt find out what God thinks if he is wrong in painting such a picture of sickness and God as that.

This is my first post on this blog.  I see you made a post regarding Thurman Schrivner in 2011.  Have you been following him since then? 

I have recently started watching him and listening to his CD's.  I plan on attending his healing school soon.  Others I know will be attending also and we are all looking for a breakthrough for our chronic health issues.  We have been listening to his teachings and it sounds solid.

 Can you share anything new since your last post?

Thanks

I see that your post was placed a few years ago and I hope you have since learned about Pastor Scrivner. The best way to learn about anyone preaching God's word is to follow the scripture along with him and pray for understanding. Thurman Scrivner has a spiritual depth or understanding of the scripture that can only be gained by the Holy Spirit. He has dedicated his time in prayer and study of the scripture giving him an understanding of the scripture that is amazing. I'm 62 and in all my days never found anyone with his depth and simplicity of teachings. Thurman has a web site tlfm.org that has sermons regarding many different subjects that has truly been a learning experience. God Bless You

I attended his healing school yesterday.  It was amazing.  There were 3 speakers.  Each one brought the message of GRACE!  Allowing God to do in us what only a living God can do.... each one was very annointed... and yes, they taught about how sickness is an attack of the enemy and has it's root in the places when we disobey, don't trust God... obey....... BUT the point wasn't focused on the sin..... the point is, if we open our hearts and ask God to reveal to us any thing in our lives/hearts that is not of him.... and allow HIM to do in us what we cannot.... then healing is absolutely God's will for us.  The prayer service at the end was very quiet... personal.... not showy etc..... There were about 5 people who prayed for others.... No big loud 'healing service' like many of us have seen and been to.  It was gentle and precious.  My friend who had pain in his hips had an instant relief of the pain.... another friend who has a problem with her foot is feeling better today.... Her son who has dealt with crohn's disease feels better today.  And my friend who we prayed with over the phone who has a brain injury tried to speak as we prayed.  Bottom line.... NO MAN HEALS.... only God can do that.  But I believe there are avenues to healing and if you really want to know more, they GIVE all their messages CD/DVD's away for FREE!!!!  I left with almost 100 of them.  I can not judge any man.  I can not see a man's heart.  But I left with peace and a closer RELATIONSHIP with my Heavenly Father.  This is the link for you to get some teachings at NO COST. http://tlsm.org/MediaOrders.cgi
 All I can say is listen and let GOD give you discernment.  Be Blessed.
