Winter 2017: Other Significant Articles

Karl Vaters, “Deal-Breakers: 7 Ways God May Tell a Pastor to Leave a Church” Pivot (December 15, 2016).

The byline of this blog by Karl Vaters reads, “Long-term pastorates are almost always good for the church and the pastor. But when these things happen, it’s time to go.”


Eddie Hyatt, “Learning to ‘Think Critically’ Without Quenching the Spirit” Global Christian Awakening (December 31, 2016) writer Eddie Hyatt talks about gifts and manifestations of the Spirit, personal prophecy, and a warning about how being careless about how we approach these things can create life-arresting problems. “When it comes to the supernatural, we should have an attitude of being open without being naïve and being critical without being judgmental. This will allow us to enjoy the fullness of God’s blessings and at the same time be protected from the many deceiving spirits at work in the world today.”


Karl Vaters, “5 Problems With Top-Down Vision-Casting – And a New Testament Alternative: Acts 2 does not give us a picture of Peter hearing from God in private, then coming to the disciples with the vision” Pivot (December 19, 2016).
