Surprise! Jenna Ellis’ Replacement for Controversial ‘Christian’ Conference is Another Trinity Denier, Bringing Total to 4
With the news that Jenna Ellis has left the lineup of the controversial ‘America’s Revival’ conference, an event so rife with bad theology, character defects, and misguided spirituality and purpose that it’ll be the closest thing to the Christian version of the Fyre Festival there will ever likely be, organizer Johsua Feuerstein had to find a replacement.
By all accounts, the conference is still on and set for this weekend. Looking high and low, they found a replacement minister to fill Jenna’s slots: Pastor Anwar Fazal of Eternal Life Ministries.
Described as ‘Pakistan’s Benny Hinn,’ Fazal has worn the moniker like a badge of honor, having spent years putting on massive healing crusades and engaging in the same form of charismatic tomfoolery that Hinn has. He’s claimed to have healed tens of thousands of people from AIDS, cancer, blindness, deafness, back backs, short legs, and other incurable illnesses. In fact, Fazal considers Hinn a good friend, having done events together in partnership.
Unsurprisingly, he also denies the Trinity, making him the 4th speaker at this event to do so. From his ministry website
In standard Oneness Pentecostal flair, Jesus is not a separate person of the Godhead, rather he is just a manifestation of the Father. The Holy Spirit is likewise not God, but rather only a manifestation of God. They are not co-equal, but rather the Father is it, and he merely presents himself as Jesus of the Holy Ghost for narrative purposes
As an incidental, along with the usual ‘all Christians must be baptized in the Holy Spirit with the gift of tongues being the evidence” nonsense, he has a unique view on the scriptures which is idiosyncratic enough to be mentioned in the way it specifically keys in on the new testament alone.
4 out of 9 speakers at this conference are Trinity-deniers and at least two of the men that aren’t are unrepentant rogues with explosively troubling personal lives. And they think they can bring Revival to America?
The only thing they are going to bring is more judgment upon themselves, and we don’t wish that fate upon anyone.

Mike Lindell is still attending? This doesnt look good on him. Those that are truly born again put Christ and his word above all else! They have discernment and wisdom that can only come from renewing ones mind with the living inspired infallible word of God.
Personally, I’d give Lindell a pass here – he’s just a guy, famous as he may have become, who is saved by grace. He’s not a teacher.
One doesnt need to be a teacher to defend the faith . He needs to walk his talk.
2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
The mainstreaming of Trinity denialism continues.
Without nuances and parsing of words in their statement about the Godhead, it could easily be taken, on the surface, as a legitimate attempt at describing the biblical Trinity among many who are not completely familiar with the historical doctrine of the Trinity.
To either say that there is one true and living God existing in three persons, or that there is one true and living God that has been made clear to our understanding (manifest) as three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, would be considered nitpicking by many if too much is made of the differences in these statements… especially when the Scripture verses that follow redirect to and solidify the truth about the Trinity.
Many people have a difficult time properly articulating the Trinity. This is so close that it’s difficult to flat-out call it heresy when others have statements that blatantly cross the line.
What should be said about their statement is that it could have been worded better. All their other blatantly false statements and practices are worth mentioning, but this particular statement is not nearly as bad as some other oneness Pentecostal statements… and it’s close enough to orthodoxy that we should strongly suggest that they reword it and leave it at that.
