I just listened to an interview Dr. Heiser did with Holly Pivec a couple of years ago. He tactfully inquired why she listed such things as prayer vigils, fasting, and general non- cessationist doctrines as signs of NAR involvement. She didn't provide a very good answer. I agree with you that she conflates everything that doesn't fit into her cessationist worldview as NAR, to the point of disregarding denominational position papers disavowing NAR by many organizations she's defamed. I'm acquainted with many Christians who have been drawn into NAR theology, and the issues therein are not the fivefold ministry and the availability of the spiritual gifts for today. It is the faulty interpretation and application of the supporting scriptures. And the NAR is not the sole perpetrator of faulty interpretation and application of scripture.

Thank you so much for clarifying this subject so easily. Calling two different things by the same name is a guaranteed recipe for confusion. And it is sad when we are criticised for believing doctrines and practices that we do not, in fact believe. Even sadder when, as we repudiate these things, we are then accused of lying and deception! It is a case of 'never spoil a good story with the facts'. Is this what Jesus wants us to do to each other? I think not!

Micheal I can understand why people might think you are associated with groups like NAR. You cozy up with lots of people who have real problems with doctrine . You "cover" for guys like Sid Roth who sounds like he is from a "supernatural" cult . I listened to you for 2-3 years until you began giving a platform to guys like James White and Robeson (and others) . YOUR doctrine has always seemed solid - but then you SOUND like you agree w/ and support the fringe like Sid and the craziness of the Toronto thing..... YOU will NOT bring about UNITY in the Body by doing this. Persecution is what will make that happen.... Christ will come back for the 'spotless' because that is all that will be LEFT after persecution. Christians will be forced to choose obedience and singular devotion to Jesus - as the MASSES just fall away.
