Yesterday I stated that there is no evidence Scripturally or in fruit or witness that Vic Hall is right.
Well, let’s look at the New Testament again.
The Scriptures Vic uses quite simply mean nothing like what Vic says they mean.
2 Cor 4:5,6
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
Why does that mean that elders have special ‘sight’ for our particular lives? That interpretation is ridiculous. To hang a theology on that awkward verse??
Other Vic Hall verses
Then Vic uses other isolated New Testament verses that we all know.
The one about ‘where 2 or. 3 are gathered, He is in the midst’. Does that mean elders have mystical insight into our lives? And if we don’t obey we’re going to hell? Really? Of course not. It means God loves people praying together.
Or the verses about ‘the feet of’ messengers or ‘hearing the gospel’ from ‘sent ones’ etc. Vic even taught that the gospel was the ‘gospel of You’ because it was a path for your life dictated by messengers!
But none of this is stated in Scripture!
In fact the messengers bring us the generic message that Jesus died for us.
The Holy Spirit brings the challenge to our own lives. Not elders with clairvoyant ‘sight’! On call. That must be obeyed or you are self-naming and hell-bound!
Show me the actual Scriptures on self-naming. I challenge you.
Come back to the Scriptures. Truth. Simplicity. Freedom.
