Like many Pentecostals, I woke up to the news this morning that Dr. Mark Walker, pastor of Mount Paran Church of God in Atlanta was joining the staff of Lee University to head up ministerial training. What does this mean and how could change things for future Pentecostal preachers?
I have very serious concerns about Welton Academy led by Jonathan Welton and I can not be quiet. It would be sinful for me to say nothing as a prophetic voice when heresy is being promoted that is clear as day. This is not a difference of opinion. This is blatant heresy.
For people who just come to get news about the Pentecostal movement or see what is being said at the Azusa Report, this update will mean nothing. For those who support us with finances, this update will be for you.
