These people vote. I just wish they'd all go to Texas and secede.

The apostle

Quote:
"Is there a spiritual force driving that thing?"

He called together a number of people who, he says, have a prophetic gift. For hours, they prayed and prophesied to identify the demonic power responsible for the conditions that allowed for the fire's spread, then worked to nullify that power. [...]

"What I felt like we were able to do, along with other people that were praying all over the world, is that we dealt with what was driving it, and then were able to put in place something that helped the firefighters and everybody put it out."

"This is what Jesus did, when he stood on the bow of the boat, and said, 'Peace. Be still!' and calmed the weather," he says. "There are going to be those who mock and make fun, there's going to be those who laugh, but there's going to be others whose interest is piqued, and there will be others who say, 'Yeah, I believe that.'"
Quote:
The pastor is a rule-follower; the apostle, a risk-taker. A pastor is supervised by elders who have final authority; at a center, the elders support the apostle. The pastor "cares for the sheep"; the apostle "mobilizes the army." (As Wagner puts it, "You'll rarely find an apostle visiting you in the hospital when you are sick.")

If I was a religious person, I'd be appalled at the lese-majesty. They're acting like divinity is some kind of magic force-field which they can invoke in their own interests whenever they like, like wizzards casting spells.

Yeah, of course. Never played Age of Empires? They have these priest units who can invoke earthquakes and stuff.

That's Age of Mythology. The ones in Age of Empires heal or convert people, and they horde relics from which they earn money.

yep, which leads to this fun playstyle where you convert one of each of your enemy's workers and construct a really funky mixed base. ah, good times...

Actually, this is what Jesus Christ teaches. You can ask God in his name to move mountains and it will be done, just like magic.

It's evil devilry when they don't agree with it. Even if it is fiction! So nothing at all alike :D

The article wrote:
Once Perry dropped out of the race, the apostolic movement stayed in the headlines when one of its leading voices, Dutch Sheets, announced his support for former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich.


I imagine some other members of the movement are French Dressing, Roman Army and Swiss Bank.


(Sorry, it's just too hard to take that name seriously.)
