    tell us how you really feel about this Brown video Philip Williams ?

    what was the original timing of this video 3 years ago with elections coming?
    what is the exact reason you are bringing it here right now?

    Dr. Leighton Flowers, Director of Evangelism and Apologetics for Texas Baptists, presents a quandary that seems to fly in the face of the Calvinistic system. TIPTOEING THROUGH TULIP WITH DR. LEIGHTON FLOWERS

      Troy Day Michael and Leighton were both converted to Calvinism for awhile. Hence, they understand the system. They are bright enough to see how it so contradicts the Bible.

    Calvinism is simply affirmation of the sovereignty of God and the doctrines of grace.
    Those who criticize “Calvinism” do not understand the doctrines of God, man, sin and salvation.

    If you think as Charismatic being the second wave in 50-70s who came from mainline denominations – maybe, but if you go back to Wagner is very much Charismatic

    As already mentioned to Gary Micheal New Apostolic Reformation originates directly from C. Peter Wagner (1930-2016) who took the idea from G12 while in South America and coined the term in 1994 after trying several alternatives such as “Neopentecostal,” “Neocharismatic,” “Independent,” “Post denominational” or “Nondenominational.” and Third-wave” (also a term coined by Wagner)

    There are several factors here
    1. After stating 1 thing in his Secular City, in Fire from Heaven Harvey Cox expounded on South America exploding for the Gospel while North American churches – in the city – slowly dying

    2. Wagner @ Fuller and AG were all seeking an answer for church growth and they found it in
    1) charismatic renewal in N America
    2) S American revivalism in the 1980s – I think particularly Brazil, though Wagner was in a different area but borrowed a lot from G12 and also Cox, who as a thinker nailed the Pentecostal growth idea

    3rd wave IMO was not only Wagner’s term. It was used naturally after the Charismatics and Yes it was more Charismatic theology as most of South American Pentecostals came running straight from the Catholic churches “Independent” and “Post denominational” were also not his terms but he tried them well. “Neopentecostal” and “Neocharismatic” he used both almost interchangeably But the term that stuck was NAR Wagner subsequently wrote of NAR in his books:
    The New Apostolic Churches (1998);
    Churchquake! (1999);
    Apostles and Prophets (2000);
    Changing Church (2004);
    and Apostles Today (2006).

    Now back to Toronto airport revival – there is IMO no other place in hte 90s where NAR was more prominent. Terry Wiles may correct me of course but Toronto had every facet of NAR present within them. This IMO characterizes their theology strictly Charismatic all the way to the time when Wagner (and others) made the curve to post-Trib and in some cases even to post-Mil also borrowed from the very Catholic theology of Augustine spread in S America and in some point even into the Liberation Gospel and Rushdoony’s Christian reconstructionism
