For a long time we have observed false teachers and leaders in the SBC shake off their sheepskin and merge with the mainstream pack of wolves.
Ronnie Floyd, as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, is one such man who has chosen to respond to the praises of man while shunning the truth and righteousness of the Holy Spirit & God’s Word. He can hold claim to all his accomplishment but one thing remains, his inability to discern the obvious shows that his faith is both juvenile and irresponsible.
If the Spirit of God is in Floyd, why does he not show it and instead (once again) side with dangerous men such as Mike Bickle?
Mike Bickle is one of the head movers and shakers in the New Apostolic Reformation cult and is elevated as one of its governing Apostle and Prophet. He was head of the Kansas City Prophet (KCP) movement with Bob Jones and still remains largely unaccountable to the damage he caused. Now Bickle is head of the popular iHOP cult, preaching the damnable NAR “Gospel of the Kingdom” and peddling his own bizarre fanatical doctrines such as “Harp & Bowl,” “Bridal Paradigm,” “Manchild/New Breed” doctrines and many others.

For Ronnie Floyd to endorse this speaking engagement is to endorse the extreme fanatical and highly dangerous cult teachers of the New Apostolic Reformation. While we hope Floyd reconsiders the consequences of this speaking engagement, the fact remains it appears that Floyd has used his position to compromise the name of Christ and His Church.
When will the SBC deal with the shenanigans of this hireling disguised as a significant church leader?

Southern Baptist Convention president to speak at IHOP-KC’s “Onething” gathering?
Should we be concerned with IHOP-KC’s teachings? Yes. Should Christians accept or participate in IHOP-KC? We should not.
IHOP-KC is built on a contemplative foundation. Because of this, much deception has occurred. It is part of the New Apostolic Reformation (more on this in Part Two), and leader Mike Bickle, like many other contemplatives, is seemingly unconcerned about the profound differences between Catholic theology and that of the Bible.
This spiritual blindness makes sense, given Bickle’s enchantment with the long-dead Catholic contemplatives who helped spread this unholy meditative practice. Two of the most influential Catholic contemplatives were (are) Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. Incredibly, Bickle states that he wants Father Thomas Dubay’s Fire Within, a book about these two mystics, to “be the manual for IHOP-KC.” (Read)
Part Two will cover IHOP-KC’s false teachings, Catholic leanings, NAR ideology, and long term contemplative influence.
