Ed Stetzer looks at the recent “Lakeland revival,” in the context of which he discusses “Evangelical Gullibility.” He quotes from Lee Grady, editor of Charisma magazine:
Why did so many people flock to Lakeland from around the world to rally behind an evangelist who had serious credibility issues from the beginning?
To put it bluntly, we’re just plain gullible…
A prominent Pentecostal evangelist called me this week after Bentley’s news hit the fan. He said to me: “I’m now convinced that a large segment of the charismatic church will follow the anti-Christ when he shows up because they have no discernment.”
Stetzer calls the article “Evangelical Gullibility” because he thinks this isn’t just a problem of Charismatics.
