Televangelist Jesse Duplantis Accused of Heresy Afteyour Sermon on Isaiah 9:6
A common verse used during the Christmas season is that of Isaiah 9:6, saying, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."
