Is there a new reformation happening in the church? It depends on who you ask.

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a popular and fast-growing new movement of Christians who emphasize signs and wonders, and teach that God is giving new revelation through new apostles and prophets. But is this biblical Christianity?

In Counterfeit Kingdom, apologists and NAR experts Holly Pivec and Douglas Geivett show how the NAR’s key tenets distort the gospel, twist the Scriptures, are influenced by New Age practices, and lead faithful Christians to shipwreck their faith. They also offer practical suggestions for readers who are already influenced by the NAR, curious about it, or concerned about loved ones who have been swept up in the movement.

What used to be on the fringes of the church is now mainstream, and many are being influenced by it unaware. This book is a wake-up call.

My thoughts:

This is a book that you have to be ready to read. I was and I loved it. It spoke so much truth and reminded me of all that I have walked away from. I was do deep into this counterfeit kingdom and it made me so angry at God when he didn’t answer my prayers.

Thankfully God opened my eyes to the truth and pulled me out. People that are deep into this movement will be offended when they read this book, but I pray that anyone who picks it up will allow God to soften there hearts and hear the truth. I feel so much freedom now that I don’t believe all the lies I once did.
