A Warning to the Church about Jacob Prasch [Updated 23rd May 2021]

Over the past 10 months Jacob Prasch has been found to be a fake Jew, is being investigated for spiritual abuse and bullying of Christians, has been caught in innumerable lies, and has been exposed endlessly as a godless railer who attacks sound Christian ministries with fake information, utilising phoney argumentation, with the desire to humiliate and destroy the children of God. Nonetheless Prasch refuses to acknowledge blame, refuses to repent, refuses to stand down, and forces himself into various churches around the world as a means of maintaining his platform to attack people.
On 16th August 2019 he is embarking on a Fall tour with 40 dates in churches, hotels and town halls around the world, from New Zealand to Great Britain. If Prasch is coming to your church this Fall then this video is a warning about the person your minister has chosen to allow to roam among the sheep under his protection.

All information alluded to in this short video is covered in-depth in the 11+ hours (now 21 hours) of videos listed below. Click here for Season One, here for Season Two, and here for Season Three (and now Season 4 here).

See episode 19 for a list of major sins from Prasch and the corresponding video in which to view the evidence in.
The most in-depth look at Prasch’s charade about being a Jew is here: bewareofthewolves.blogspot.com/2019/04/is-jacob-prasch-fake-jew.html

Prasch denying he’s a “full-blooded Jew” but affirming he’s partially Jewish:

Prasch claiming his name comes from ‘Pharisee’ can be seen here:

And here are some more peculiar statements from Prasch that only make sense if he’s saying he’s half Jewish, which we know he isn’t.

Fonzy‘s research found that Prasch claimed on Christian TV at the start of a debate with Palestinian Alex Awad that he is “ethnically a combination of Jewish and Gentile“, which is a bit odd considering he’s 100% Irish-American according to Treena’s aforementioned research.

Even as far back at 2000 there were questions about Prasch faking being half Jewish, as recorded in a July 2000 issue of Despatch Magazine (Vol 12:2 on page 6):

Fittingly just over 20 years later, this happened…

Update August 2020: Prasch Fakes a DNA report!

Jacob Prasch has in July attempted to prove he is Jewish by presenting various documents in high-resolution video. Chris Rosebrough exposed those documents as fake in this video. Prasch also presented a DNA report claiming he was Jewish, so I exposed this as fraud in episode 48 of the Jacob Prasch series:

Update April 30th 2021: Stewart Menelaws Exposes Prasch

Stewart Menelaws has today exposed the depth of Prasch’s evil, recounting Prasch’s sustained slander and lies directed by Prasch (and his cult) at Stewart’s wife Deborah. Here is the video and attached article

In the video Stewart gave a powerfully accurate overview of Prasch:

“Prasch has always been a controversial figure, referred to as a bull in china shop, and in the main has been viewed by the small number of Christian outlets that knew of him, as a divisive person unable to conduct himself in keeping with the office of a Christ-centred Bible teacher.  Now the hope was in time this would change.  But once the internet enabled him to branch out, he separated himself off from those who challenged his behaviour and he surrounded himself with sycophants, [and] yes men.  Over recent years, not surprisingly, that bullish behaviour has grown into something ugly.  He regularly sits in the seat of judgement and condemns all who would challenge him, denying the right of mercy, forgiveness and even salvation to those he has a special place of hate for.”

“He uses up his time (and his followers’ money) to spread his cancer of spite. He has given himself over to a virus of hatred that has darkened his soul.”

Stewart Menelaws on Prasch, 30th April 2021

It is an accurate overview of a shameful career which David Pawson warned about occurring back in 1998 when he observed the same issues manifesting in his incredibly accurate Arbitration Report I republished here to Prasch’s wrath in 2019, wherein Pawson noted the following:

David Pawson’s observations on Prasch in 1998
  • Moriel is a smaller group of autonomous fellowships in loose association, but its publications are the virtual mouthpiece of one dominant personality, apparently operating without mutual accountability.
  • His unusual background, knowledge and experience have attracted many followers though, as with other persuasive communicators, some of his devotees regard his pronouncements as the last word on a subject or issue, an attitude he does not appear to discourage.
  • The title of his newsletters (‘Moriel’ means ‘God is my teacher’) has more than a hint of a claim to special revelation, whether this is intended or not.
  • Not content with teaching the truth, he clearly believes that he is also called to expose and denounce all the errors he can find in others. He is adept and even seems eager to discover these and disseminate public warnings about them. Elim is only one of many coming under his scrutiny.
  • In other words, judging other ministries has become a major feature of his own. To be fair, he does publish lists of those he ‘endorses’, though without seeking their approval. With these he is prepared to overlook faults.
  • A rebuke that may have been intended to encourage correction very quickly becomes general criticism, then strong condemnation.
  • On his own admission, emotion takes over, especially if the initial criticism is rejected or just ignored. A combination of frustration and indignation lead to intemperate language, unchecked accusations and insulting innuendo. The result is a barrage of abuse which not only antagonises his opponents even further but also embarrasses his allies. 
  • In the case of public ministries he has declared ‘false’, all those who have sponsored or supported them in any way are said to be equally responsible for their ‘wickedness’. Guilt by association is a prominent feature of his invective, however tenuous the connection may have been.
  • Of equal concern to the content was the language and tone of what I can only call a tirade, leaving an impression of vindictiveness, even if this was not intended. Such a disparate list of complaints suggests a determination to find every possible fault, which in turn raises the question of motivation, especially when expressed so offensively.
  • An example of unacceptable matter and manner was the outrageous assertion that a Christian denomination preaching an orthodox gospel and seeking to save lost sinners had become “an apostate cult propagating heresy”. Equally offensive was the comparison between its executive and the Sanhedrin (a body which condemned Christ to death) or the Vatican (“kissing the ring of Pontiff Pope Wynn I”).
  • Moriel has used the Internet, as well as its own publications. This is as public a platform as other branches of the media and exposes the scandal of Christians fighting each other to all and sundry. To my thinking, this is as damaging to the gospel as the exposed weaknesses of some ministries.
  • Jacob Prasch needs to be accountable to a peer group who will tone down his polemics and curb his apparent compulsion to lash out at those he disagrees with in such an indiscriminate wayHis associates at the hearing were clearly aware of this need and gave assurance that this would be in place for the future. This was welcome news. Time will tell whether this will succeed where his present panel of “Advisors” have failed.
  • But I know that I am far from alone in wanting to disassociate myself from his apparent eagerness to discover and expose the faults in others, often failing to check the facts or putting the worst construction on them. Even when truth is on his side, the way he handles it prevents others who agree with him from standing with him. Tragically, he becomes his own worst enemy when fighting for the truth. I can understand those who regard him as ‘dangerous’. Such a ‘loose cannon’, unpredictable and unaccountable, can damage and divide the body of Christ, even when his motives and intentions are to protect that same body from error. How sad that his weaknesses are preventing his strengths from being more widely used and appreciated.
  • Maybe he could have been invited to meet the executive face to face — though I have to add that during our conference he did not look his opponents in the eye when addressing us, which made me wonder if he finds such intimate encounter more difficult to handle.

David Pawson’s stated fears of what Prasch’s group would become back in 1998 have all come true and more with Prasch surrounded by sycophants who refuse to hold him to account (the main culprits therefore are the fool organisation known as CMFI who have given and continue to give Prasch the title of ‘minister’ and therefore access to the Church. I have exposed CMFI as the group of inept cowards that they are.

Also in the video Stewart referenced Prasch’s belief in the Metatron (a false Christ from Kabbalah), and showed Prasch’s 2009 Moriel Quarterly article about it. In recent days I’d also found Prasch directing people to a 1997/98 tape recording of the same type of heretical material when, ironically enough, attempting to damn someone else for having a false Christ! See that documentation from the 1990s here at the foot of the resource article.

Lastly Stewart Menelaws pointed out how Prasch demands Christians debate him. He’s so notorious for demanding debates from leading religious figures that I’ve compiled a video of his 60 known demanded debates made via video or audio (there’s many more made via written word all compiled here). Here are the 60 that were captured on video and audio:

Update 23/5/2021: Prasch Explains why he Runs Away

For 2.5 years since Fall 2018 I’ve recorded how Jacob Prasch has been on the run from reality and how he simply cannot answer to whatever is exposed about him other than his frequent engaging in obvious avoidance strategies such as

  1. Strawmanning (an intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent’s real argument)
  2. Ad Hominem Attacks (an argument or reaction directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining)
  3. Reframing through Kevin Bacon (linking his critic absurdly or tenuously to some false teacher or false teaching, then applying guilt by association, then focussing on that instead of what they exposed about him)
  4. Lying (either negatively about his critic, or positively about himself)

Prior to my exposing Prasch, Dr. James White responded multiple times to Prasch’s attack videos and found the same strategies presented by Prasch which James summed up as Prasch throwing “a smoke bomb” and running away since he clearly couldn’t answer James on any point. This is one of James’ many brutal takedowns of Prasch’s idiocy and multiple “fails” at dealing with reality in 2016:

With Prasch’s avoidance strategies so well known now, it has become necessary, perhaps due to questions inside the cult’s echo chamber, for Prasch this week to explain his fleeing from various exposés coming out about him to his disciples. Here is Prasch presenting an entirely false narrative about the exposés:

So Prasch, deep in his Cloud Cuckoo Land of self-belief, explains he only “engages in conflict” with Chris Rosebrough, the Menelaws, Treena Gisborn, David Nathan, Bill Randles, and Tim Wirth when they are in doctrinal error, and he doesn’t need to respond to their claims against him because they are not doctrinal issues they raise. Prasch claims those people with their supposed non-doctrinal allegations just produce against Prasch “all kinds of nonsense, half truths, lies, [and] malicious spirit,” so he “ignores” them. The trouble with this claim, however, is Chris, the Menelaws, Treena, David, Bill and Tim all point out Prasch’s behavioural issues, and his heresy of teaching the Kabbalah’s Metatron is the Messiah. ALL OF THEM! And behavioural issues and heresy from a so-called ‘Reverend‘ are fundamentally doctrinal issues.

Behaviour & Heresy = Doctrinal Issues

Prasch’s behaviour of brazenly lying about people (in fact lying about all the people on that list) and faking information on them—as I’ve recorded through this blog and video series—and doing so whilst claiming to be a Christian, is a doctrinal issue, and if it wasn’t then Prasch’s decades-long career of pointing out behavioural issues (be they real or invented by Prasch) in innumerable other Christians and faux ‘Christians’ is undermined by his claim above to only deal with doctrinal issues, rendering him a liar and a hypocrite. Central to the Christian life is the evidence of being a Christian seen by the watching world in Fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness self-control) which Prasch never exhibits, and since he does exhibit the contrary Deeds of the Flesh in abundance he is rightly declared as a pagan and an unbeliever based upon his own actions, hence his critics point out the glaringly obvious problem Prasch has in professing to be a Christian in the first place and farcically a Christian teacher too.

Likewise all his critics also point out Prasch’s outrageous heresy of declaring the Kabbalah figure of the Metatron is Jesus the Messiah despite scholars concluding Metatron either doesn’t exist at best, or at worst is a demon, meaning Prasch is damned in the best scenario and at worst is worshipping a demon. This is also clearly a doctrinal issue since you can’t get any more central to doctrine than Christology.

In both these areas Prasch has tried to respond (contrary to his idiot and therefore lying claims that all his critics don’t refer to his doctrine) in video form and has made things a hundred times worse for himself, as Chris Rosebrough used Prasch’s defence of the Metatron heresy to expose Prasch as a flagrant deceiver who brazenly added the word Metatron into the Bible to defend his heresy:

Prasch has tried to circumvent the Christian necessity of exhibiting Fruits of the Spirit by repeatedly playing the Doctrine Card (which was also seen in his clip above), as if to say it doesn’t matter what lies and deception he gets caught in, since if he has right doctrine then that trumps everything else, including evidence-backed claims he’s a cult leader:

The irony is Prasch behaving the way he does and lying about people repeatedly proves that he’s off in his doctrine. Indeed Prasch is so far out of whack in his doctrine that he points people to a false Messiah; he’s so far outside of orthodoxy that he exhibits zero Fruits of the Spirit and excuses it all by playing his doctrine card which ironically points to that wrong Jesus he has! The greater irony than all of that is Prasch would teach people to be on the lookout for the very person he has become! Listen to these clips and marvel at his complete inability to see himself in his own descriptions:

Prasch’s Brazen New Lie to His De-Brained Disciples

Prasch is so widely exposed as a heretic and a liar with severe and outrageous behavioural problems that he cannot in any way biblically defend himself as there is no defence in the Bible for godless evil liars who engage in the work of Satan in lying about and defaming people, so for years he has had to flee by throwing out his straw men, his ad hominem (which he lies about and claims he doesn’t commit when that’s all he does), his 6 Degrees From Kevin Bacon idiocy to reframe issues, and his flat out lying about others and himself to escape, all in the billows of his smoke bombs. But now it has reached such a point of extreme exposure for Prasch that he has to invent a new lie to explain why he can no longer even “engage in conflict” with those who expose him so widely, claiming farcically that his critics don’t bring any challenge to his doctrine(!!), when in actuality that’s largely ALL THEY DO!

When your eyes are opened to Prasch’s avoidance strategies, which in themselves utilise brazen lies, you realise he’s not only on the run from reality, he’s actively engaged in foisting total BS on thousands of his disciples, all as a means to maintain his absurd position as their thinker/protector who is taking them to Hell with his Metatron heresy with his pockets filled from their donations to his fool anti-Christian, church-hating ‘ministry’. He foists BS about his fake Jewish identity, he foists BS about the Metatron, he foists BS about all his targets, and now he’s foisting BS about his total inability to legitimately answer his critics. How on earth can his disciples be so de-brained that they cannot see his avoidance for what it is?
