I have only questions?
I don't have a perspective or a veiw point that does not come laden with my own baggage.
A friend gave me some very useful links.
Terry Virgos perspective is very balanced.
There's some good debate amongst emergent post charismatic types here.
Some more good stuff here.
My views are not the views of 24-7prayer! Just personal opinion.
I'd like to hear of the Azerbaijan outpouring!
If it's God it's God. Who am I to question His methods.
If we are not into it or moved by it and don't feel particularly led to hold our own outpouring service, then we shouldn't be made to feel bad or any lesser of a christian. I don't want to succumb to Christian peer pressure yet have to hold that with the tension of not being too blind to see.
I am praying for the guys at Lakeland more and more.
My prayer is that that what is happening there would propel the church out into mission. Weirdly I worry about carbon footprints from all the travelers and wonder if the money they spend on flights would be better used feeding the poor, especially if they can just touch the TV screen and get the power. Invitations to "come and get it" can only really be taken up by people with money for flights and hotel bills, that instantly cuts out quite a large swathe of people.
Would this be happening if it wasn't televised? Hence my question about Azerbaijan.
When does the revival finish and the marvelous GODtv coverage end? Is it a circuitous feeding circle? Would someone be brave enough to not film it for a week?
What does the term revival mean? I take it that it has multiple meanings.........
