WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?
I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

This week I'm addressing the Charismatic movement (& surrounding issues) and specifically answering why we are not a part of it. Simply put, it's a counterfeit of the real thing. What is happening today is nothing like the authentic recorded events in the Bible. Just compare Jesus' healings with those of Benny Hinn! It seems, however, that charismatics have no problem preaching, teaching and advocating their beliefs. We, on the other hand, often refuse to speak clearly on these matters. It is a sensitive/controversial subject so I'm employing a sermon warning label this Sunday. What we need is not ambivalence; rather we need clarity and correct handling of the word of truth. I hope people will open their Bibles & their minds. It's a lot to cover, but I'm giving it a shot. I'll cover miracles, prophecy, tongues (everyone's favorite), healing, etc.
