When I was in Bible School back in the 80’s, we used to joke: Was that a prophetic word or a “pathetic”word? It is no longer a joke. The state of the prophetic world is, in a word, pathetic.
In August of last year, I felt compelled to confront a leader in the prophetic movement after he attacked someone bringing credible charges of sexual immortally against Todd Bentley. This leader actually spokes curses of the man. A panel of mature leaders investigated the charges and concluded that Mr. Bentley was unfit for ministry. (Bentley, thanks the panel [depending on which broadcast your watch—earlier it was something like a ‘witch-hunt’, but has no plans to stop ministering.)
And, now, what has transpired since then is one of the most immature, ugly, mafia-style campaigns I have ever seen. Accusations of homosexuality, adultery, lying, and every kind of evil are being leveled from one “prophet” against another. His team of enablers and maybe coconspirators, are threatening people with exposure. I have never seen something so disgusting my life. The world behaves better than this!
