Andrew Strom and Prophecy.


Andrew Strom has closed discussion on his latest topic with the following comment:

Andrew Sep 21st 2012

It saddens and distresses me that so many are now so comfortable with “writing off” virtually every dream or vision. If we despise prophecy we are disobeying Scripture and impoverishing the Body of Christ. Blessings to all. Andrew Strom.

Strom continues to push his line about despising prophecy – but I don’t think I’ve ever yet seen him address the WHOLE of the section of scripture he’s alluding to.

Scripture says:

“Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good”

This is my public response to Andrew. I post it here because I am blocked from his blog. I have previously submitted this to him by personal email:

Andrew, by your lack of TESTING of prophecy YOU in fact despise it and impoverish the Body of Christ. YOU disobey scripture by your casual attitude to the prophetic gifts.

It would be wonderful to see Andrew genuinely repent. Then he may be freed from the attitudes that led him to move his family half way around the world to chase the Kansas City prophets.

He may have turned his back on that group after experiencing them first hand,  but he clearly has not turned away from the reasons he was drawn to them in the first place

    “He may have turned his back on that group after experiencing them first hand, but he clearly has not turned away from the reasons he was drawn to them in the first place”

    Amen and amen!

    Men like Andrew are, in my opinion, far more dangerous than men like Todd Bentley as Andrew “disassociated” himself from other false prophets and that somehow makes him a “true prophet” in the eyes of the undiscerning.

    Todd Bentley was so blatantly false that it takes no discernment to recognise that fact. He said the wrong things and he did the wrong things. But even after leaving his wife during his “revival”, even after marrying his second wife within weeks, there are people devoted to him. Such people have no love of the truth and wilfully ignore God and His ways.

    And I agree with what you say about “Men like Andrew” – there is a much more subtle thing going on in those cases. They say a lot of the right things and probably believe most of the right things, but there is an area of blindness that opens them up to error. Sadly when they gain a following they also lead others into the same error.
