Hank Hanegraaff Seeks Experiences, Not Truth

This is not what the Bible itself says and it shows why he went apostate: he wanted an experience, not Truth. As the "Christian Post" reported:
The "Bible Answer Man" promised supporters that he will keep them updated on his condition, and also about the path he is on, revealing that his next book will be titled Truth Matters; Life Matters More.
"The map is not the territory. The menu is not the meal. The Bible has given me great strength and courage for leading my life. It is what I call the infallible repository for redemptive revelation. I trust the Bible," he said, speaking of some of the topics the book will touch upon.
"But the Bible is pointing me to something far more significant, it is pointing me toward an experience in Christ. And that is something that has become ever more precious to me," he added, and concluded the video by asking for prayers.
Interestingly the entire Bible is Truth, Jesus IS Truth.The Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. God is the God of Truth. Entire books and chapters in Scripture are devoted to Truth. Without Truth, there is no life that pleases the King. The title of his book posits a false dichotomy--one which is absolutely contrary to Scripture, for all doctrine (whether false or true) indeed impacts one's life.
Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers
Joh 4:24 "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
1Ti 6:3 If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, 
1Ti 6:4 he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, 
1Ti 6:5 and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.

Mat 4:4  But he answered, "It is written, "'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
