on the non-stand against false apostles by Charisma

Greg Linscott points us to an editorial on the Charisma magazine website. In it the columnist speaks against abusive practices by ‘prominent preachers’ demanding exorbitant appearance fees and even worship by conference attendees. Some apparently demand cash gifts for a moment of counsel from the ‘big man’. [And some accuse fundamentalist preachers of being egomaniacs!]

The article concludes:

New Testament Christianity is humble, selfless and authentic. And those who carry the truth don’t preach for selfish gain or to meet an emotional need for attention. May God help us root out the false apostles and false teachers who are making the American church sick with their man-centered, money-focused heresies.

You won’t root out false teachers without naming names, brother. You won’t cure your assemblies without separating from such.

    Let’s get rid of our false preachers!

    Who are they?

    I can’t say because I don’t want to offend them.

  2. Don Johnson says:

    Yeah… you and I get it, Kent, but I’m afraid the evangelicals don’t. But that is the obvious point.

    It sort of stuck out at me like a glaring red beacon when I read the article.
