Is the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) biblical? I am concerned about the teaching from those associated with this movement, like Bill Johnson out of Bethel Church.
The New Apostolic Reformation is a movement associated with Bill Johnson and his church, Bethel, which portrays the work of the Holy Spirit in unbiblical ways and promotes a false view of a believer's place in serving Jesus, including dangerous teachings emphasizing seeking signs and wonders, and displays of mystical powers.
