The charismatic movement is largely the reason the church is in the mess it’s in today. In virtually every area where church life is unbiblical, you can attribute it to the charismatic movement. In virtually every area — bad theology, superficial worship, ego, prosperity gospel, personality elevation — all of that comes out of the charismatic movement.
“It’s theology is bad, it is unbiblical, it is aberrant, it is destructive to people because it promises them what it can’t deliver, and then God gets blamed when it doesn’t come. It is a very destructive movement. It has always been.”
“…the movement in itself, with all its components, is a disaster to the reputation of Christianity and a severe corruption of biblical teaching.”
I was amazed that he could in one sweeping statement blame all the ‘mess’ in the church today upon the charismatic movement. But it has to make you think.
