WATCH: Pastor Shane Idleman Interviews Jesus Culture's Kim Walker-Smith
Christians can embrace one of two extremes concerning the word revival.
At one extreme are those who embrace pure emotionalism and hysteria—"if it's odd it's God"—all weird behavior is excused.
The other extreme lacks a living, vibrant spiritual life. The church feels dead, cold and lifeless. Talk of reviving the things of God (revival) is either dismissed or ridiculed.
Both extremes can hinder the work of the Holy Spirit and genuine Christian growth. Those truly filled with the Spirit reflect the personality and nature of God. Someone truly filled with the Spirit though bold, is rarely bizarre.
Don't believe false claims until you hear both sides. From grave sucking, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), healing, angels, emotional worship—and much more, watch Pastor Shane Idleman's candid interview with Kim Walker-Smith here.
