What’s Wrong with Bethel Church and the NAR Movement? with Holly Pivec

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a well known and quick-expanding new movement of Christians who emphasize indications and wonders and teach that God is supplying new revelation by way of new apostles and prophets right now. Some church buildings linked with these teachings have even develop into domestic names—you’ve likely read of the commonly influential Bethel Church, for example. And if you have not heard of Bethel by identify, you’ve nearly surely sung their tracks (“Reckless Like,” any one?).

But are NAR teachings constant with the historic Christian faith? That is the concern my podcast visitor right now, Holly Pivec, seeks to remedy in her new ebook, Counterfeit Kingdom: The Potential risks of New Revelation, New Prophets, and New Age Practices in the Church, which she co-authored with Biola professor Douglas Geivett.

Holly is a blogger, creator, and speaker, as well as a pastor’s wife and homeschooling mother. She has a master’s degree in Christian apologetics from Biola University. She has coauthored 3 textbooks about the New Apostolic Reformation and writes a well known web site, which you can read through at hollypivec.com.
