I received a question from a reader who has been troubled by a popular NAR teaching. I share her question here, along with my reply, because I know other readers may be struggling with the same question.
Last weekend, I spoke with Derek Gilbert, at View from the Bunker, about the New Apostolic Reformation and my two new books analyzing this worldwide movement.
I’m often asked the question, “Are Assemblies of God churches part of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement?” It’s an important question because the Assemblies of God USA and Assemblies of God organizations around the world make up the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination–representing 65 million people.
A reporter recently asked me why more traditional evangelicals–including Dallas Willard and Josh McDowell–would take part in an event organized by NAR leaders. This is what I told her.
The other day, I was talking with a friend and he asked me, point-blank, “What is the worst that will happen if someone buys into this NAR stuff?” Good question.
People often ask me for advice to help a friend or family member see the errors of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement. Unfortunately, I don’t have a silver bullet. But I do have five strategies I find helpful.
One of the most common questions I am asked is “Why do people join the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement?” I’ve thought about this a lot. And I believe there are at least four main reasons.
