What Are We to Think of the Prophets and Apostles that Exist Today? Part 2

I’ve named a few names and I’d like to name more. But naming names is not the actual point. Doing so can become a distraction and can easily turn into an argument over a person instead of their theology. I don’t want a person to take center stage because that’s not the purpose of this series.

Looking back, I cringe now at some of what I saw, was taught, and even some of what I believed. Before I go any further, I’m not knocking you if you are still involved in aspects of the Charismatic Movement. That’s your choice and while I disagree theologically with it in its entirety, I hope that have thoroughly searched the Scriptures to determine the truth of it.
