We Have Messed It Up Royally!

In the beginning God God birthed the Church in power (Acts 2:1-5) God gave a mandate to the Church to go into all the world and preach the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20) God stated that the Church would do that by bearing witness to Jesus – especially His resurrection (Acts 1:8) God gave us authority to […]

Lakeland – It Is Time to Repent!

There is something missing in the aftermath and continuing saga of Todd Bentley and Lakeland, Flordia. Something I have not seen yet but that I believe is absolutely essential if the Charismatic Church is to regain some of it’s relevance and integrity in the eyes of the wider Church and the world.

Standing in the Gap

There are a number of things that need to be addressed in the Charismatic Church today. Lakeland and Todd Bentley is just one.

Lakeland – Terry Somerville

One of the saints in my local church here forwarded a newsletter to me from Terry Somerville. I have taken the part of the newsletter dealing with Lakeland and Todd Bentley and pasted it below this opening comment – worth the time it takes to read it. This man of God always has wisdom to […]
