    NDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- For the second time in two weeks, members of a church on the south side of Indianapolis have found their Jesus statue vandalized, giving it the appearance of being beheaded. “It makes me sad that somebody would do something like that,” said Pastor Brad Flaskamp. “I was hoping it was just a random act to destroy it in the first place.”

    It's great that C-3PO knows over six million languages. It's less great when he buzzkills your Pentecostal revival by saying all the languages you're speaking are fake. And yes, sorry, 1 Corinthians 13, not 14. My apologies. Or, as they say in Pentecostalism, twa bravintisha.

    My children die from a lack of knowledge from rejecting My Spirit for as My word speaks truth the denial of it grieves me and My Messenger of Truth their comforter. So do not despise the gift of prophecy or any other gift for they all come down from the Father of lights and these are all found in My Spirit of Truth and to deny Him is to deny Me as well for I and The Father are one . . . 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 20 Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations-words of...

    And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.(Acts 1:7-8)I have taken you, my readers on a very truncated tour of what I believe to be the causes of the death of the Charismatic movement.

  • The Sickness Unto Death...Charismatic Post Mortem pt 4

    There are many lessons we can learn from the death of the Charismatic movement, if we are willing and humble enough to prayerfully consider them. ( I define the death of a Spiritual movement as this; If you are worse off and further from “the only True God”for having participated). I don’t think it helpful to just dismiss everything about it as rubbish and to try to move on, for only Truth can set us free. I would like to call our attention to the foundational source of the departure, which is the erroneous doctrine which quickly flooded in and...
  • Charismatic Post Mortem...pt 1

    Charismatic Leader Lou Engle Kissing the feet of a Catholic Priest In the early 1960’s, there was a very profound revival which spread across the globe, among mainstream, nominal Christians, which came to be known as the Charismatic movement. It is not the purpose of this article to debate the validity of this movement, for the author is fully aware that very early on, there was ecumenism, false teaching and outright compromise with Roman Catholicism, which has caused many to understandably discount the movement entirely as a Satanic counterfeit, and false revival. Having said that I, I know for...

    While Ted Cruz proudly proclaims he is an Evangelical Christian, his campaign takes pains to hide the truth that Cruz and his pastor father, Rafael Cruz are Pentecostal Christians, a fact further hidden by having Ted and Heidi Cruz’s belong to the congregation of First Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist church in Houston, as their home church.

    International protests are being planned throughout the month of January after the Norwegian government removed five children from their Christian parents under accusations of "religious indoctrination." Protests are planned for the rest of January in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Austria, Romania, Spain, Ireland, India, Poland, and Australia, along with several other countries to speak out against the recent separation of five Christian children from their parents at the hands of government officials. In November 2015, Norway's child welfare services, known as Barnevernet, removed five children, including three sons and two daughters, from parents Ruth and Marius Bodnariu, residents of Naustdal...

    PE News (Pentecostal Evangel) ^ | 7 May 2015 | Darrin J. Rodgers
    Pentecostals were relatively isolated from mainstream Protestantism in the early twentieth century. When the Assemblies of God and other Pentecostal churches were invited to become founding members of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) in 1942, it was a watershed event that paved the way for increased cooperation between Pentecostals and other theologically conservative evangelical churches. In 1947, Pentecostal Evangel Editor Stanley H. Frodsham recounted how participation in the NAE seemed to be a fulfillment of prophecy. Frodsham recalled that, years earlier, "a mature Pentecostal saint" made the following prediction: "The time will assuredly come when God will unite...

    For the first ten or fifteen years after my reversion, my main apologetical interest was in debating and discussing with Protestants. These days, I rarely engage the Protestant/Catholic debate, and I focus more on the "culture wars" by debating secularists and atheists. Protestants are fellow Christians, our brothers and sisters in Christ, and the Church is very clear on that. However, every so often, I revisit the issues that divide Protestants and Catholics because Truth matters, and because the Church is a stronger witness to the world when we are undivided. At the Last Supper, hours before His death, Jesus prayed that his followers all be...

    Pope Francis walks onstage with Giovanni Traettino, a Protestant pastor and his friend, in Caserta, Italy, July 28. Pope Francis said he knew people would be shocked that he would make such a trip outside of Rome to visit a group of Pentecostals, "but I went to visit my friends." (CNS photo/ L'Osservatore Romano via Reuters) VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- His voice breaking with emotion, Giovanni Traettino, a Pentecostal pastor in southern Italy and longtime friend of Pope Francis, welcomed the pope, "my beloved brother," to his partially built church in Caserta.

Like their Pentecostal brethren who inspired the movement, Catholic Charismatics practice a form of Christianity centered on the transformative role of the Holy Spirit in their lives.... While the Catholic Charismatic Renewal enjoyed papal endorsements from both of Francis's predecessors, the Argentine pope became the first to attend an annual Charismatic convocation. Verbally, the dynamic pope called the Charismatic Renewal "a great force" for the Catholic Church,...

    When asked about the conviction of David Yonggi Cho, founder of world's largest Pentecostal congregation in South Korea, for embezzling $12 million from his church, popular pastor John Piper took the opportunity to warn pastors in the U.S. who might "love money," in a recent message."With every public dishonoring of Christ, every public dishonoring of His Word and His Gospel, and His Church, it makes me angry and it makes me sorrowful," said Piper in a recent episode of Ask Pastor John.Yonggi Cho who pastors Yoido Full Gospel Church and oversees a network of churches numbering 800,000, was found...

    Pope Francis’ recent address to a conference of prosperity-preaching ministers sponsored by Kenneth Copeland has many people talking. On the one hand, there are those who have expressed deep concern and dismay about this event. They wonder what ecclesial status Tony Palmer—a longtime friend of the pope’s who arranged the meeting—has, why the pope of the poor chose a prosperity-preaching Word of Faith group out of all the possible choices, and what the future implications might be. On the other hand, there are those who have rejoiced and hold out the possibility that this may yet produce some positive fruit. I...
