I’ve written on many issues at my blog related to continuationist theology – the view that all the gifts of God continue today, including such things as prophecy, tongues, miracles, healings, apostles, prophets, etc.
Today, an article of mine was posted at The Pneuma Review. This is a journal of ministry resources and theology for Pentecostals and charismatics. The article is entitled, “Does God Still Give Revelation Today?”Continue reading →
Today, for Americans at home or abroad, this fourth Thursday of November marks Thanksgiving Day. The history of how America came to be is not so straightforward, in a pretty sense. Still, the day is set aside for us all to remember what we are thankful for.
Whenever I reflect of thankfulness, I’m drawn to a song from about 15 years ago. The title of the song is Come Fall on Us, hailing from the first Enter the Worship Circle CD. The two raw and earth bands, Waterdeep and 100 Portraits, have given us this collection of 15 songs. And Come Fall on Us is specifically based out of Psalm 50. Continue reading →
Well, it is now less than 2 weeks before our big move back to the States. It’s been 5 and a half years in Belgium, filled with great memories beyond description.
We’ve lived here for most of our married life (married 7 years next month) and both of our boys have been born in Belgium. It has become like home to us. As I continue to tell people, this has been as much about learning as it has been leading. I think that will be true going forward the rest of our lives.
So here are 2 short videos: the first capturing memories from our time in Belgium and the second pointing to the next step back in Memphis. Continue reading →
Just this week, this news came forth from the Church of England (Anglican community) in regards to women bishops:
The Church of England’s governing body voted overwhelmingly in favor of female bishops on Wednesday, ending a 20-year impasse that could see women ordained as senior clergy by the end of 2014.
A vote on a package of measures to endorse women bishops was supported by 378 members of the General Synod while eight voted against and 25 abstained after months of behind-the-scenes talks to unite reformers and traditionalists. Continue reading →
This week, I came across a newer online resource. It’s an online journal that particularly provides ministry resources and theological articles for Pentecostals and charismatics. It’s entitled The Pneuma Review, pneuma being the Greek word for spirit.
The Pneuma Review lays forth their mission statement in this way:
“To lead Pentecostal/charismatic believers to a greater understanding of God’s Word and assisting church leaders in equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. We also long for greater dialogue between Evangelicals about doctrine, and by way of an open forum, to promote Biblically-centered theological discussion on the gifts of the Spirit.”
