      Troy Day I think he had great doctrine on holiness, some healing teachings were good and his delivery was amazing.

      I heard him preach at Family Worship Center in the 1980s. Swaggart liked him and he preached there a bit. After a while it got a little repetitive.

      Jeff Latham I’ve listened to hours of ravenhill. He was a Methodist if I remember right. And he did not believe in speaking with tongues as the infilling. He preached at Pentecostal churches but was not one. He wasn’t against it, he was for regeneration and holiness.

    and what about NO TD Jakes – anyone? I would have considered Tom Steele points us to Rodney Lee Parsley by now

  • Reply April 5, 2019

    Tom Steele

    Eh… Parsley’s a good preacher. Maybe up until about 4 or 5 years ago I would have said deserving of at least contending for “Top 3” if we are seriously rating preachers like some type of idolatrous person-worship practice. But the last few years he’s been different. Even if I wanted to participate in this idol-worship discussion of venerating preachers above others I wouldn’t likely include Parsley on such a list at the present time. He needs to reevaluate a saying he got from his mentor Lester Sumrall: There’s much to be gained by a return to the discarded values of the past.

      Tom Steele ‘idol-worship and veneration of preachers’ is the root problem with many stagnated churches that ‘used’ to be on fire.

      Troy Day I’d go as far as mid-2015. He was preaching some really, really good material in the months right before he announced that he had to step down for a season to receive treatment for his vocal chord cancer.

      That situation seems to have been the greatest thing to effect him. For whatever reason, things have not been the same since.

      I do agree though that in the 90’s and early 2000’s he was truly on fire.

      I’ve heard so many good ones over the last sixty years. It would be impossible to rank them! what would be the criteria? Do we look at scholarship? emotion? Or What? I think we’d be getting into subjective issues rather than objective reality. And I’ve never even heard many of you, so how could I judge? DEW

      Cecil Carpenter If you want me to understand you, please do not write in all caps. Is ‘the one less movement’ a movement, or this just a random string of letters? Who is Parkersburg? Could you write this in a way that it more comprehensible ot people who do not know what you are talking about?

      Was the comment about liking young men sexual in nature, or reinterpreted by people with dirty minds?

      Wasn’t he misquoted as supporting homosexuality a few years ago?

      I’d certainly like to have heard Wesley preach; He was the founder of Methodism and of the Holiness movement. While he may well have been Pentecostal in heart, I’ve never heard of him as being called a Pentecostal preacher. But I’m saying too much–not challenging any of you, just voicing some thoughts. DEW
