New Tab for Miscellaneous Comments or Questions

I’ve just posted a new Misc. tab (WordPress calls these “pages” – they’re near the top), in which to post comments or questions that you’re not exactly sure where to place.  Please read the tab before posting your comment or question.

    I’ve just retitled the “Miscellany” tab “Misc.” in order to keep all the tabs/pages in one line at the top. OK, call me anal-retentive.

    I’ve added a more detailed explanation on how to bold, italicize, or blockquote in the Before Commenting tab, for those who are not yet sure how to do so.

    Hey guys…I know I haven’t been on here in awhile…..but something the student pastor at my church mentioned in his sermon prompted me to post here.

    I’m currently attending a United Methodist Church (the one I grew up in). I may or may not have said this before. I think I may have just referred to it as a church in a mainline denomination….but I need to name it now.

    I need to eat lunch now, but I will be adding a comment/question that is of deep importance after I’m done eating.

    For now, I’ll say that he attends United Theological Seminary, which is a United Methodist seminary….

    So the sermon this past Sunday was about John 11 — where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. The student pastor plugged Heidi Baker in the sermon. He talked about how she has raised the dead, healed people, etc. He said that his seminary is becoming increasingly associated with her and her ministry. 😦

    I did some searches online, and I discovered that Heidi Baker gave the commencement speech at United Theological Seminary in December 2013. Not only that, but I also discovered that Heidi’s husband received a doctor of ministry there, as did Randy Clark 😦

    It seems that the hyper-charismatics are switching their strategy. Until recently, it seems that the folks in the hyper-charismatic crowd used to mock seminary education and degrees. A search online revealed that many of the hyper-charismatic leaders are getting degrees from mainline seminaries now.

    Why? I firmly believe that they are trying to pull mainline denominations into their cult. This is a new front — one that I previously thought would be far in coming. I didn’t think that the hyper-charismatics would appeal to those who were in mainline seminaries.

    This is also the missing link between the hyper-charismatics and those in mainline denominations. I truly believe we are closer to the end.

    I’m guessing that Heidi Baker (and Randy Clark) and the others in the seminaries are trying to appeal to the things which attract those in mainline denominations. For the United Methodists, this means appealing to scholarly pursuits and social issues. Then they throw in a little miracle stuff, too. I’m sure that contemplative spirituality also plays a role in uniting them.

    I’m going to try to compare Heidi’s talks at United Theological Seminary with the videos of her talking to hyper-charismatics. If she doesn’t act the same, then we can be sure that she is putting on a show for both groups — and that the speakers just say things that they think their audience would like to hear, and act the way they think their audience wants them to act.

    I believe this is deception at the deepest level, and I’m sure that demons are involved.

    Please pray for the universal church. Thank you.

    I feel like the warning about this really needs to get out there. This stuff is no longer just floating around in hyper-charismatic circles. The whole church is at risk.

    Oh…and Randy Clark and Heidi’s husband (and other hyper-charismatics) are now using their degrees as means of advertising for themselves in regard to miracle classes and things they are offering online. 😦

    Heresy alert! 😦

    I’d like to talk to both the student pastor and the senior pastor about this situation. (The senior pastor also graduated from United Theological Seminary).

    I know that Heidi Baker and John Crowder have appeared together. Does anyone know if there is a video of Heidi Baker taking part in John Crowder’s blasphemous “communion” services? Or shows her “tokin’ the ghost.”

    If we can find something with either baptism or communion, that would be great. My senior pastor really values the sacraments, and if he sees someone disrespecting them he might be more likely to speak out against Heidi Baker. Thanks.

    I was at lunch when I released your comments, but I just noticed they are placed on the blog post announcing the Misc tab rather than the Misc tab itself. Would you mind copying and pasting them there? They’ll get more exposure there, I’d think. I can’t actually ‘move’ a comment, and if I were to copy and paste it, others may think the comment was from me rather than you.

    Sure, Craig. 🙂
