In his latest departure from orthodoxy, Francis Chan declares his love – not only for IHOP’s Mike Bickle (see below) – but for the entire apostate NAR movement – referring to them as simply harmless “Charismatics”.
The following video was screen captured from the Brio TV live feed of the ATD event on Saturday 10/7/17.
Speaking at the event “Awaken The Dawn” on 10/7/2017 – Chan claimed that God just revealed to him, while backstage, his “arrogance” and need to “repent” – And, that in his arrogance, he used to teach against charismania, but that “my theology has changed over the years”, etc.”
Chan also implies that those who discern the un-biblical issues within the NAR movement are simply “arrogant” and think they “know better.”
The list of apostate NAR speakers at the ATD event includes: Heidi Baker, Lou Engle, Shawn Bolz, Todd White, Rick Pino, Nick Hall, etc.
