The Strange Fire conference has caused no small stir among charismatics. Leaders of the movement like Michael Brown
have been outspoken about their disapproval of the event in the weeks leading up to it. But so-called ‘Reformed Charismatics’ have been more silent, yet it is this group that largely should be listening to the truth taught at this conference. They have been silent, that is, until now.
On his way to James MacDonald’s “Act Like Men
” conference, Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, decided to make a side stop at the Strange Fire Conference. He was not registered for the event, but felt the need to stop and hand out free copies of his own book, A Call to Resurgence.
Driscoll himself is a continuationist who has declared that “cessationism is worldliness.” His apparent “spiritual gift” is what he calls a “gift of discernment” that allows a television screen in his head to reveal to him the filthy and lewd sins of others.
