"What is our sin? Extending mercy to people who don't deserve it? Trusting people who are still messed up? Maybe! Or is it that we give people hope who deserve to be punished? Probably! Are we too easy on sinners, don't emphasize sacrifice enough, and refuse to acknowledge bad news as acts of God? Some think so. Or could it be that we are simple-minded and childish in our zeal to see God demonstrate His love and His fascinating wonders among us? Guilty as charged!" - Kris Vallotton
Zeal is one of your greatest sins Kris because it is not placed in the Gospel. Instead it is based on your sloppy agape definition of the love of God. Your zeal spends so much time asking if you could that you never examine if you should. Could you extend grace and restore other false teachers as you bragged in your closing? You could but the real question is if you should. Can you empower people to behave as if they have spiritual gifts which they actually do not possess? Again, you could, but should you? Should you teach people that all can prophesy and charge them five grand a year to attend your bogus supernatural school to "learn" the gifts when the bible says the spirit gives the gifts as he wills? You could and do, but should you? Could you let anyone walk up to God's holy desk to offer prophecies to your congregation? Could you allow kids to pretend they are raising the dead or sucking off residual anointing from the tombs of dead heretics? Could you teach people that if they are not healed that it must be their fault? Could you bask in false wonders that provide glory only to yourself and your church? Yeah sure. You could do all of these things and many more but you shouldn't. That is really the point Kris.
