Descrição do produto

This book examines Wayne Grudem's controversial teaching on fallible prophecy in view of various lexical, exegetical, and historical points of analysis. It also addresses the teaching's popularity and continuing advancement through many charismatics within the "New Calvinism" movement. The doctrine of fallible prophecy is neither benign nor harmless, rather it constitutes a troubling strange fire for the body of Christ and continues to spread through the advocacy of popular continuationists like Wayne Grudem, D.A. Carson, John Piper, and Mark Driscoll:

“Not only does fallible prophecy have no real value, it is dangerous and can lead the gullible to take very unfortunate actions...since Grudem is the Neo-Calvinist theologian leading the charge in attempting to develop and defend the position of fallible prophecy, Beasley primarily interacts with his writings. His carefully presented argument leads to the conclusion that Grudem is reasoning from both ignorance of New Testament times, as well as from silence. Beasley has done the church a wonderful service by producing this volume. My hope is that many will read it and absorb its contents."
Gary E. Gilley, Pastor-teacher, Southern View Chapel, Springfield, Il:

Contents:
1. Chapter 1: Prophecy – A Test of Love: According to the proponents of fallible prophecy, the presence of error in a prophetic utterance does not make such claimants of the prophetic gift false prophets, it only means that they are New Testament fallible prophets by definition. This constitutes a complete reversal of meaning of prophecy which results in a confused message concerning the nature and character of the God who has consistently and effectually revealed Himself through His appointed messengers. Moreover, such a redaction of prophecy effectively confuses, and nearly eliminates, the scripturally prescribed tests for prophecy. The importance of this must not be underestimated, for all of the tests of prophecy, in the Old Testament and the New Testament, have an unimpeachable centerpiece: the love of God.

2. Chapter 2: Fallible prophecy – Lexical Considerations: Grudem argues that the New Testament connotation of the word prophet no longer possessed the sense of authority it once had. In view of Grudem’s emphasis on this point, chapter 2 examines Grudem's lexical justification for such a position.

3. Chapter 3: Fallible prophecy – The Case of Agabus: One of the most central arguments for fallible prophecy is founded on Agabus' prophecy in Acts 21:11. Like Grudem, D.A. Carson insists that Agabus’ prophecy was fraught with error: "I can think of no reported Old Testament prophet whose prophecies are so wrong on the details." This serious accusation establishes the basis for a thorough examination of Agabus in the 3rd chapter.

4. Chapter 4: Fallible prophecy – A Gift for All?: The advocates of fallible prophecy argue that the NT gift of prophecy was extremely common and functioned “in thousands of ordinary Christians in hundreds of local churches at the time of the New Testament.” In addition to this, Grudem argues that neither grave error nor immaturity should serve as a barrier to the pursuit and exercise of such a gift by nearly everyone within the local church. Such thinking is a tragedy for the body of Christ which is called to holiness and truth in all aspects of life and servitude.

5. Conclusion: The Fallible Prophets of New Calvinism: Believing in the value and efficacy of fallible prophecy, a growing number of popular pastors and teachers are now openly promoting such teaching. Particularly within the increasingly popular New Calvinism movement we find a growing number of advocates of fallible prophecy. To facilitate the spread of this doctrine, Grudem himself supplies a 6-point strategy for establishing fallible prophecy within the local church. This poses an increasing danger of the tolerance and proliferation of false prophets within the church.

5.0 de 5 estrelas a good answer to this very questionable teaching 29 de novembro de 2013
Por audie - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato:eBook Kindle|Compra verificada
A few years ago, there was a TV program called “Flash Forward”. The basic premise was that an event happened in which people all over the world had a brief glimpse of what they would be doing at a particular time in the future. When the time they saw finally came, the events unfolded but with certain differences in details for many of the ones the show focused on. Some details are as they had seen, but others were different.

There is a certain parallel between what happened in that show and what some teach concerning prophecy today. There are those who teach that modern-day prophets, assuming there are any, are not required to live up to the biblical requirements that what they prophecy be 100% accurate, that they can make mistakes and will make mistakes in their prophecies, and that these mistakes do not mean they are no real prophets. Prophets today could be as inaccurate as the characters in that show, and not only will they be defended, but those who point out their false prophecies and try to hold them accountable are the ones who are derided.

This book responds to this teaching about fallible prophecy, and I think does so very well. I especially found what he said concerning how Agabus is used to defend the idea of fallible prophecy, and how he defends Agabus as a man who prophesied truly, to be of interest.

Though in the title he addressed how this idea of fallible prophets is being spread in what is called New Calvinism, this idea is no less popular in more normal charismatic circles, and this book should also serve to address this bad teaching among them, too.

I can recommend this book very highly. It would be good for this idea of fallible prophecy to finally be put on the theological junk heap, because it has already caused enough damage, and is plainly without any biblical support. If there are prophets today, they should not try to scamper from under the weight of the biblical requirement that they be accurate in what they prophesy. Prophecy is serious business, it is no light thing to claim to be speaking what God has directly told you to say, and it should not be done frivolously, as far too many modern-day prophets seem to do.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Questioning Agabus's prophecy? Read this book. 8 de janeiro de 2014
Por Joseph Roch III - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato:eBook Kindle|Compra verificada
Michael Beasley goes into a well-thought-out critique of what's called "fallible prophecy", the idea that New Testament prophets (and today's prophets) can claim to speak for God but be wrong in their prophecy. One of the main pillar's that fallible prophecy hangs its hat on is a cursory reading of Agabus's prophecy in the book of Acts. At first glance it appears that Agabus did get part of his prophecy wrong, but the author does a good job in explaining from scripture how the prophet very likely didn't err at all in the prophecy. This explanation alone is worth the cost of the book. Recommended.

This book will guide you through an in-depth study of the meaning of prophecy in the OT and NT and it explores if there was a period of transition or a major event that turned this gift from infallible to fallible for NT and the modern church, even when commons scene indicates that there is no reason why God would not speak infallibly in the NT or modern church as he did in the OT, this book will help you see and challenge all the mistakes in doctrine that the fallible teachers defend with no REAL scriptural support. This book is easy to read and guides you step by step i recommend this not just to New Calvinist but to Charismatics around the world . I was raised Charismatic , i have seen personally the Damage that this doctrine "Fallible Prophecy" Has caused to many friends and Family. THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ!!!

Michael's style of writing does not always make for easy reading, but he builds an irrefutable argument against this insidious and pernicious doctrine, which, quite remarkably has managed to capture even the likes of Piper and Carson. One can only hope and pray that God would use this book to open their eyes.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Fallible prophecy or hunch or intuition? 31 de janeiro de 2014
Por reformed thinker - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato:eBook Kindle|Compra verificada
I picked up this book in light of the Strange Fire conference and the discussion it raised. I really didn't realize how some of these teachings have sort of slipped through the back door and how some of our great leaders have been the cause of it, at least in part. This book does an excellent job with the subject matter. To be honest, I was slightly clueless that people even held to "fallible prophecy" in the sense that it is seen as merely a "mistake" and "not reason enough for excommunication or church discipline". Anyway, I recommend it. Whether you are Reformed and concerned or simply want to learn how the New Testament deals with prophecy, read this book.
