For those who are unable to view the free live stream of the Strange Fire Conference here at Grace Community Church, I thought I would do my best to provide a written summary of the various sessions as they unfold (Session One; Session Two; Session Three). I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep this up, or if I’ll be able to other sessions (check out Tim Challie’s blog for his coverage) But I thought a little would be better than nothing. It provides us with a helpful opportunity to interact with what is actually being said at the conference. Having said that, the following was transcribed in haste, and so please forgive any typos. I pray it’s a benefit to you.
What you read in Charismatic Chaos is what we see back in Africa, except Africa is much worse.
I will be doing a brief overview of the Charismatic movement in Africa. It’s something I’ve observed over the past 30 years, and I consider it to be a matter of real concern. This is not simply something I’ve learned about through reading books. It’s what I come across, literally, every day. And so I hope you will therefore bear with me if I get a little emotional. It’s a real concern in my own heart.

I listened to this message with a group of Christian friends last night. I had never heard Pastor Mbewe’s speak before. The part that I heard left the impression that the man tells it like it is. I would like to thank Narrowing path for reblogging this from The Cripplegate blog.

You are always welcome, my dear and gracious brother. 🙂 I also have posted at least two of his excellent sermons under ‘Sermon Links’ on the blog somewhere, plus his sermons are on sermonaudio.com.
Thank you, Sherryn.
BTW…something pretty major happened in my life this week. I don’t want to mention it online anywhere, but I trust you.
If you wish to “discuss” this, please email me at email@example.com.
If not, just pray for me as I am going through a time of transition.

Conrad Mbewe’s lecture at Strange Fire was excellent. It is incredibly sad that we have had the opportunity to take into Africa, the true gospel, and to see lives changed. Instead we have given them a counterfeit gospel which will lead them straight to the pit. Praise God for Conrad and his genuine love for the Lord, the Bible, and the people of Africa.I for one will be praying for the university he wants to open so that he can train up godly men to take the true gospel to the African people. Only then can lives be changed. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry for my late reply, but amen to all that sister! Conrad’s sermons are available on iTunes and at sermonaudio.com. I have been greatly blessed by his preaching. 🙂
