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 NAR 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 unbiblical 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.
