Ryan Ries, of The Whosoevers – his ministry, his presentation of the Gospel, and his claims of a “95%” conversion rate – are examined in this all new video – taken from recent Whosoever event footage.
What is wrong with the message of Ryan and the Whosoevers?
1] The kids are drawn by the allure of a free concert, free merchandise and free pizza. See 2Peter 2:18
2] Ryan’s message is centered on his own “testimony”, wherein he glorifies the flesh, and his rock & roll lifestyle.
3] Rather than even mention sin or repentance, Ryan teaches there is “a void” in your life”, and that apparently, you simply need to add Jesus to your life.
4] He calls Christ a “punk” rocker, and compares the disciples to “gangsters”.
5] Rather that directing his listeners to the Word of God, he encourages them to pray, and then listen for a response from God. This is advocating extra-biblical experiential, mystical revelations.
6] He does repeated plugs for his own ministry throughout his message.
7] Ryan makes false claims – that he preaches the Cross, and that he has a “95%” conversion rate at all his events.
The big question: Is Ryan making disciples of Christ, of simply followers of the Whosoevers?
