    I think people are just hungry to the point that even the bitter is sweet.

    Strange fire certainly exists, but as we see the verses where we hear about strange fire there is also a fire from God:

    "And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.
    And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD." Lev 10:1-2


    Why would you presume that God never does anything extraordinary that is visible to even carnal human eyes?

    If it was truly the glory of God, everyone in that room would be dead.

    Yeah, they also tried, and failed, to raise a girl from the dead in December. These people belong in insane asylums.

    I wonder how the shepherds survived when the glory of the Lord shone around them. . . .

    Thank you all for the variety of responses (in line with what I hoped).
    Being the other side of the pond the majority came in whilst I was asleep and that makes it very difficulty for me to find points at which i would otherwise have joined in.
    Bless you all for responding.....I guess that, on balance, I am safe to continue to involve in CB (which is why I raised the thread)

    It wasn't his full glory in Luke. Bethel church claims this was full glory.

    Can you tell us where you got that information? I didn't see where they claimed it was the "full glory."

    Hi Mike,

    I can only put it this way, simplest i can do.

    If Christ is a tin of paint, purest white you have ever seeing, so brilliant it blinds you, than you can make every religion, no matter which a different color, be it red, blue, green, orange, pink whatever, pick the color that suits, so when you join that religion that is the color you will become, it cant be helped, its like sticking a paint brush into a tin of paint it not going to come out any other color than the color of the tin you put it in, so any man who says he is in Christ, that joins a religion, well that white wont stay white for long, the religion, whatever the color, will stain and change the color, never will it be white ever again, but than if you leave that religion, than He is able to clean your garment its His good pleasure to do so,

    1Co 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

    As for church, if you are in Him than you are in His church has nothing to do with mens religions.

    Act 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
    Act 7:49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
    Act 7:50 Hath not my hand made all these things

    God bless

    my friend lives for Bethel. She is in school there. She is a beautiful intelligent single mother who has raised her only son completely alone. He is grown now. She feels like they are all family there. She and I don’t agree about Bethel, or the things they practice. I’ve heard it all. Even for a time listened to Bill Johnson’s podcasts but then went away from it. Point is, my friend is otherwise very normal and a loving person. She just wants somewhere to belong. Yes, she has mentioned going to lay on graves for anointing. She is bold and courageous but maybe secretly more of a follower than she is aware. “These people belong in insane asylums.” I wouldn't say so. No more than any other denominations.

    If they think there is God appearing in a dust cloud out of the vents, laying on people's graves, etc, yeah, they are NOT normal.

    going to sleep. I don’t know you but I’m sure you have some beliefs others might call not normal. As I admitted I almost was caught up in it also but don’t regret going through any of it as all of it (not only Bethel) has taught me something. I know I do it too...but it is irritating here on the board when reading remarks on how stupid people are for not knowing this or seeing that. When we are where we are until God shows us differently.

    Except the things at Bethel are not of God. They are of the devil.
