Tony Scheving in Fargo, North Dakota, with Master’s Bible College is a false prophet teaching works salvation. It is disappointing that his advertisements have been featured for years in a well-known independent fundamental Baptist publication called The Sword of the Lord. The college is also endorsed by S.M. Davis and R.B. Ouellette.
I used to wish someone would tell The Sword of the Lord what this guy believes, but apparently, they don’t care because advertisements for Scheving’s college have been featured in their newsletter for years, even though I exposed that heretic back in 2011. Unfortunately, there are several others just like him, but Scheving is especially dangerous because he’s running a heavily-advertised Bible college.
People sometimes ask me why I’m so hung up on this repentance thing. Some pastors don’t think it’s a big deal, but it IS a big deal because it’s sending people to Hell. People are being taught that salvation isn’t free and that they have to turn from their sins and make Jesus the Lord of their life in order to be saved. As a result of this teaching, people are trusting in their own works and remaining unsaved. When this heresy creeps into a church, they often stop doing door-to-door soul winning, and when they do occasionally deal with someone at the altar, they are presenting a false gospel.
Nowhere in the Bible will you find the phrase “repent of your sins.” I’m sick of the wolves in sheep’s clothing in the independent fundamental Baptist movement and the pastors who are afraid to call them out.
In Tony Scheving’s pamphlet, 7 Steps to God, he says this:
“Salvation is simple, but it’s not shallow. It will cost you something to follow Christ. It may be free, but it cost Christ his life. When you really mean business and want to be saved, you are deciding to walk the ‘narrow road.’”
UGH! Isn’t the definition of free that it doesn’t cost anything!? Yes, everything costs something, but Jesus paid the price for our salvation so it could be a free gift for us.
Here are a few more quotes from Tony Scheving:
“Do you mean business with God? While salvation is free, it’s not cheap.”
“Salvation all boils down to being willing to make Christ the Lord of your life. Are you willing to make Jesus Christ the Lord and Master of your life?”
“Getting saved means repenting of sin and making Jesus Christ the Lord of your life!
"If Jesus isn’t Lord of all, He’s not Lord at all!"
If the Lord had full control of your life, you would never sin, and we know that we are all sinners. Tony Scheving contradicts himself by saying that salvation is free, but that it’s going to cost a lot. As you can see, Scheving isn’t just a little mixed up on the definition of repentance. This lying deceiver teaches a full-blown lordship salvation. Listen to the sermon where I describe "Repentance Spectrum Disorder" to familiarize yourself with the different levels of repent-of-your-sins heresy that are out there, but Tony Scheving is as bad as it gets. He’s a false prophet who needs to be marked and avoided.
Here is the video clip where I exposed Scheving back in 2011:
