In November 2019 I stumbled upon a cache of priceless documents from 1998 detailing Jacob Prasch’s lunatic attack against the Elim denomination; his witch-hunting his own Moriel volunteers in Australia and the USA; and his demonstrating perfectly back then the exact same type of railing/lying/unbalanced behaviour as I’ve chronicled since 2018. Today I did a little more searching and uncovered one of the funniest attacks/claims Prasch has ever made in a decades-long career of damning everybody who makes the dread mistake of disagreeing with his half-baked pronouncements about all and sundry.
So the story begins in 2000 around the end of Prasch’s diabolical attack on his own volunteers in Australia and the USA, and revolves around—oddly enough—another Australian group, this time being a collection of theologians who write a monthly(ish) magazine called Diakrisis who together have “a mission of teaching, informing and equipping the church.”
Prasch, who first became well known in Australia in the 1990s, apparently read the Diakrisis magazine, not as a person seeking to be taught, informed and equipped, but as a means of finding material inside to use to attack the authors and, I’d imagine, to destroy the magazine and absorb its followers into Moriel (as has been the Prasch modus operandi with ‘rivals’ Jan Markell, JD Farag, and Amir Tsarfati in recent years). Prasch made Diakrisis aware that he wasn’t happy with their view of Bible teacher David Wilkerson’s prophecies uttered some years prior about the ‘imminent’ demise of America (their view was that the prophecies hadn’t happened and that the word ‘imminent‘ couldn’t be extended any more to accommodate them). Prasch exploded and made them aware he was going to publish an article in his own magazine Moriel Quarterly tearing them apart for disagreeing with his own half-backed pronouncements about David Wilkerson.
As you may be aware if you’ve viewed the Jacob Prasch series of critique videos I’ve done, when Prasch attacks someone, he doesn’t use logic or reason or facts, instead he tries to connect his target tenuously to somebody else, and then damns them via that fake association. For instance Prasch attacked me not by interacting with the information I presented against him in November-December 2018, no, he simply found a comment I’d made about John MacArthur, and then flung himself on it and flung his credibility out the window by saying I believed Christians were all to take the Mark of the Beast (via his half-baked, widely-spread fool pronouncement that MacArthur himself taught that, despite my comment itself being a weblink to an article explaining that MacArthur didn’t say what Prasch said he’d said—if Prasch had actually read the linked article, his argument wouldn’t have worked, but as that was the only argument he had he went with it and was willfully blind). Additionally, when Prasch wanted to absorb Amir Tsarfati’s hundreds of thousands of YouTube followers in summer 2019, Prasch seized one error Amir had made (one that many of the Reformers also made—which Prasch had to lie about to cover) and associated Amir with….David Koresh and the Branch Davidian Sect! Yes, that’s how mentally unwell Prasch is, and that is the pattern Prasch has shown since 1998 when he tried to damn all his Moriel USA and Australia volunteers as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
So, with that background presented, let’s move to the group Prasch tried to connect to the team at Diakrisis in 2000…
Prasch, unhinged as always, in trying to defend David Wilkerson (who I’m sure wouldn’t have appreciated Prasch’s intervention on his behalf) declared Diakrisis were basically NEO-NAZIS! Prasch wrote:
“Australia, where ‘Diakrisis’ is published and where Mr. Arnold lives, appears to be a breeding ground for this manner of attempted character assassination. Indeed, we ourselves have been victimised by internet operators in Australia influenced by the Neo Nazi beliefs of the ‘identity movement’ which rejects black people as ‘beasts of the field’. Such people charge Jewish believers in Jesus with the crime of ‘being Jews’.”
The Diakrisis article writer, Mike Calydon, in response to such idiocy, wrote,
You might well ask – what brought this ire down upon us? Well, we dared to question the accuracy of the prophecies made by Wilkerson 15 years ago depicting the ‘sudden’ and ‘imminent’ demise of America, (nowhere in our writings have we labelled David Wilkerson a ‘false prophet’ as charged by Prasch). We also questioned Wilkerson’s application of Scripture written specifically for National Israel, to the church age. Mr Prasch asserts that Jesus prophesied events that have yet to take place yet said they would happen soon, and that therefore we have applied ‘misguided criteria’ in voicing our concerns.
The full article can be viewed in the original pdf file on the Diakrisis website here, and here is the page in question below:
After a period of silence, Prasch returned to his Australian targets for a second attempt at killing them off in Spring 2004 in demanding the Diakrisis authors debate him and his mate Philip Powell in Brisbane in 2004. Hilariously the Diakrisis team turned down the railing oaf and his lackey for this epic reason:
After serious thought it was decided that it would not be correct or prudent to meet with [Prasch and Powell] who between them have written describing us as ‘jerks, insignificant jerks, liars, infantile, doomed, jealous, dishonourable, theological buffoons, Ruckmanites, radical cessationists, and at one point likening our writings to that of the ‘Neo-Nazis”.
Hectoring e-mails were sent to us and copied into an email list of supposedly 3-4 thousand people. Other ministries have suffered similar treatment in the past few years. When the challenge was declined further e-mails followed accusing us of ‘running scared’. Nothing could be further from the truth – both of us are either interstate or overseas at the time nominated anyway!
Prasch claiming the group were “running scared” from debating him is one of Prasch’s stock comments to supporters/fans/disciples whose belief in such an idiot notion provides Prasch with narcissistic supply he hankers for and feeds off of like Frank Booth feeds of his gas cannister in Blue Velvet.
Prasch has made 56 known debate demands in video/audio form compiled in this video, and for all his boasts about his opponents running scared, Prasch is yet to participate in his first actual debate. Quite from running scared, his targets more commonly apply the same logic as Diakrisis have in asking why they should entertain a master in ad hominem slurs.
The series of slurs Prasch aimed at them reminds me of the infamous 2012 attack Prasch launched on Deborah Du Rand of the website Discerning the World when its authors made the dread mistake of fact-checking Prasch’s book Shadows of the Beast, a ‘crime’ that resulted in a long list of slurs from Prasch that then resulted in this famous graphic that compiled all the slurs Prasch made in a couple of possibly drunk retaliatory comments:
Diakrisis’s 2004 refusal (on page 7) to entertain the couple of railing idiots also highlighted Prasch’s LYING about the contents of the Diakrisis magazine—a claim which the Diakrisis author asks people to fact-check by giving issue and page number—which reminds me of the Christmas Eve 2019 idiot film Prasch made with his new lackey and fellow idiot Amos Farrell of Genesis Christian Radio wherein Prasch claims on video that my ‘The Jacob Prasch Files’ documents DON’T contain certain information, which I subsequently filmed and showed that they DO in this critique of the two muppets (he also said someone other than me released the documents, such is his cretinous lack of research).
After Prasch’s idiot secondary attack-via-debate failed, the lunatic then admitted he had been wrong about David Wilkerson’s prophecies anyway! Diakrisis justly scoffed at the chump in the next issue of the magazine (on page 7), and keenly noted a trait in Prasch:
“We are pleased to announce that Jacob has corrected his past judgements and properly discerned Dave Wilkerson’s deceptive teachings in an article available on the Moriel website. However, Jacob cannot resist the temptation to once again malign us and repeat another of his many false accusations. (We simply are not ‘Radical Cessationists’ as he states).”
It all demonstrates that Prasch’s pattern of attacking people with faked information for the crime of disagreeing with his half-backed pronouncements, and using illogical guilt by association (when the association exists only in his mentally ill mind) has been clearly seen from 1998 to present day, so he has been attacking the church for that long, and during the whole time, Christians have been willingly FUNDING these Satanic exploits! Shame on them!
To get a better understanding of how Prasch manages to persistently categorise people so incorrectly (and to laughably categorise himself as some great Christian hero in the likeness of John the Baptist and Elijah) watch this video:
