“Excellent interview!!! It was as if I had been reading every note I had written down in the last 5 years on the subject….yep, 20 years in that movement and I didn’t even know that I was in it…yikes!!!” – Fighting for the Faith listener [Source]
The above comment from Facebook summarised why Chris Rosebrough’s recent interview Holly Pivec (from Spirit of Error), is a must listen to. They both discussed the New Apostolic Reformation, how to identify it, why it is so dangerous and why it has nothing to do with Christianity.
We will be addressing details in this interview in other articles.

Interview with Holly Pivec on the New Apostolic Reformation

I know people who attend an Apostolic Church (member of Apostolic Church Australia). Is this denomination similar in beliefs to the New Apostolic Reformation?
If they believe in modern-day governing apostles and prophets- yes. They are.
The Apostolic Church Australia does not appear to be related to the New Apostolic Reformation.
The question is: is the Apostolic Church Australis related to the “Jesus-only” cult or not?
Acc’d to the Apostolic Church Australia and several of their member website churches’ 1-page belief summaries: the 1st item says they believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
However, seeming to contradict that, their History page says their denomination came out of the Welsh Revival (which was the one that started the “Jesus-only” cult).
Strange. Which is it. Part of the “Jesus-only” cult, or not?
It is a very good thing this Fighting for the Faith is taking on this anti-biblical nar group which has nothing to do with the Bible. It is only about signs & wonders, not the Bible.
To make matters matters worse, the signs & wonders it puts forth, none of them are even found in the Bible.
So it is doubly in error: (1) It is based on the wrong motive (subjective signs/wonders/emotions vs. objective truth found in the Bible), and (2) those signs/wonders are not even found in the Bible anyway.
Interesting that Brian Houston is linking himself up with these nar group. One error attracts the other error. If either of these 2 groups were biblical, they would call out & reject the other. But no, instead they are in bed together, each loving the lie the other is telling. Proof neither is interested in truth. Again, the root of this is, they are in it for the money. If there were no money to be made in it, they would not be “in the ministry” (what a joke).
