(Mat 10:26 KJV) Fear them not therefore:
for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
(Mat 10:27 KJV) What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.(Mat 10:28 KJV) And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
C. Peter Wagner on Todd Bentley “Speaking of the public figure going down the tubes, Todd Bentley now carries the label of a liar and a deceiver. I’m sorry to mention it, but I felt personally deceived in the same way when Ted Haggard’s sin was exposed and he was immediately removed from ministry. In the Lakeland I case, I am elated at the way things are turning out. The Revival Alliance with whom Todd was aligned on June 23 has kicked into action with a vengeance. Ché Ahn and Bill Johnson, like me, were overseas when things broke, but John Arnott stepped up to the plate and moved in apostolically. It has since become clear that Todd’s Fresh Fire Board could not have handled the situation, Stephen Strader and Ignited Church could not, nor could any of his other close friends. Only the Revival Alliance could. I am delighted that they are not buying into typical charismatic soft morality, also called “greasy grace” or “don’t touch God’s anointed” or “mercy must triumph over judgment,” phrases that have been used on other similar occasions as convenient religious cop-out excuses. They’re proceeding in love, but it is tough love! http://bonya.wordpress.com/2008/08/28/c-peter-wagner-on-todd-bentley/
Those who read my posts will note that I have often said both adultery (or porn. lusts) and alcoholism are the unacceptable too common sins of too many evangelical- Pentecostal pastors.. our premiers, prime ministers now too.. who all are supposed to be exemplary, abstainers too..
But you cannot hide the sins for long anyway..
Judgment begins in the house of God but it does not end there.
and what too many cops, police, RCMP are now alcoholics , bad drug users, racists, people abusers too? Unaccepted now too!
