Anglican Pentecostal Perspective on Charismatic Leaders Fellowship 2016

Dr. Billy Wilson speaking at CLF 2016.

In the question and answer period Dr. Wilson was asked how is it that after fifty years ORU has maintained it Spirit-filled faith and not drifted into apostasy and liberal forms of theology as other Christian universities have done. He answered that every faculty member is required to either have a prayer language, or actively seek one, and that this keeps the institution grounded in the Spirit of God. Wow! In my research I had noted how the best intentions and most rigorous doctrinal statement at the time of foundation of a seminary or Christian university is no protection from drift into theological liberalism and apostasy. But here was the secret!

Without much discussion, the CLF group decided we would return to ORU for next year’s meeting. If you are a church leader (you don’t need to be gray-haired like us) please inquire as to how to join us.


P.S. Digression:

Carolyn and I had an extra day at Tulsa before another church engagement. By happenstance we spent some time at the Philbrook Museum of Art. It is a beautiful building and a glorious museum filled with great works of art, including many specifically Christian works – and little of the nonsense that is called modern art. Go see it and refresh your spirit if you are passing by Tulsa.
