Ted Haggard is filming an episode of ABC’sCelebrity Wife Swap this week — with Gary Busey.
Dogemporer also has an excellent overview of Joel’s Army theology. This movement is also called “The New Apostolic Reformation” (NAR). There are a lot of links in the article, I recommend it highly. You can get lost in all of the links and craziness of these people. The only problem I have had with reading all of this material, is that dogemperor relies on AoG terminology which sometimes confuses me. Dogemperor says that the AoG churches officially deny they are supporting Joel’s Army activities, but a lot of AoG churches have been steeplejacked by Joel’s Army supporters.
Luke Chapter 13, Verses 1 to 5.
In a discussion about Galileans, Jesus states clearly nothing to the reason why God would let such a thing happen. All Jesus states is whether they were sinners or not. And even in not being sinners, no reason in their Innocence to their own deaths. Why does God allow the Innocent to die, and yet his only Son give no reason for why he let it happen. 10 years ago , yesterday, over 2000 Innocents died. You tell me why God the merciful, God the understanding, and God the wise let those Innocent lives die.
In 1995 the Vineyard Church in Kelowna, BC was really “rocking”. We attended a huge conference at that time and observed everything the manifestations movement had to offer: Shaking, quaking, stuck to the floor, animal noises, cock-a-doodle-doing, roaring, loud praying, prophesying, along with good teaching and occult teaching mixed together.
John Wimber, founder and director of the Association of Vineyard Churches, died November 17, 1997 of a brain hemorrhage following a fall and recent coronary bypass surgery. He was 63 years old. From its beginnings in the 1970s, Wimber’s Vineyard movement has grown to approximately 450 U.S. congregations and 250 more in other countries. It was a strong influence in the “Laughing Revival” and Promise Keepers movements (top PK leaders are Vineyard members). Wimber, a former Quaker, emphasized supernatural healing, spiritual warfare, and prophecies. He taught a church growth course at Fuller Seminary with C. Peter Wagner. Wagner said of Wimber’s Vineyard churches, “It congealed more around relationships than written bylaws.” Many of Wimber’s “signs and wonders” teachings are rooted in Eastern mysticism and mind-science inner healing techniques (per a 1996, 32-page report by Media Spotlight; see adapted report).
