Trouble is, they think they are already being healed.

I was unprepared for how deeply this video would disturb me.

Isn't Prophet Sorger's repeated "God says ..." declarations in direct conflict with his org's statement of faith that "the Bible is [...] the complete and final revelation of God?"

The biblical prophets didn't deliver as many utterances per second as he does. However, to sense that Sorger is an oracle for something else doesn't discount authentic revival. (I say again, for the record, I'm neither a charismatic nor a cessationist.)

Moonshadow - is anyone really a cessationist? I had to click your link to look it up because I hadn't heard of that term before.

Manny -
An unfortunate reason for atheism is the bad example of a limited number of believers. But then it is expected that people, not unlike yourself, will look at that and say "Christians are absolutely nuts." rather than recognizing that we all don't writhe on the ground at the direction of our pastors. I know you don't think that.

Hard to believe, isn't it? Full cessationist? Sure, Dutch Reformed Christians.

As the adherents of Reformed theology, with its high views of God's sovereignty and the Bible, deepen their conviction to the Calvinist tradition, fewer of them will keep an eye out for the supernatural.

Sounds strange. However, Wiki gives the reasons why, sola Scriptura being principle among them.

Absolutely bizarre... and all the comments below the clip were positive, too. I can't help thinking this type of emotional roller coaster ride must be very detrimental to the very (perhaps unstable) people to whom this is appealing.

I guess they mean well... but man, oh man, are they living and teaching error!
