If the Church was doing it's job correctly these kind of folks would be out of business. The folks coming out to these kind of circuses have not or are not being feed properly at their Church home if they even have one, trust me I can relate, but you won't catch me there because I know how to feed myself if I can't get it at Church. Babies starving for the Gospel and haven't developed that ear to hear,is what keeps feeding the Animals at the Circus. In my personal opinion this guy is going to kill someone if he is not careful, I hope and Pray something like that don't happen to some innocent soul.

We need people in the Charismatic/Pentecostal circles to grow a spine and say the same thing that Baptist Press has finally said.Krispy
and I mean due respect, we have enough people "saying" enough things, what the Church is in dire need of is sold out prayer warriors who grow callouses on their knees, and I'm directing that towards myself also.There is not one follower of Jesus here who could kick up our time in secret travailing prayer a notch or ten. Not one, including me.and that's the truth, lets search our hearts.
