Some blog readers may remember that several years back I made a strong plea for the avoidance of the word “prophet” or words derived therefrom. Below I have posted a weekend interview with Russell Moore which includes the following from Dr. Moore: “we are no longer the moral majority. We are a prophetic minority.”
In 2010 my main focus was on mainline churches in general and the Episcopal Church in particular, but the same critique applies here. Please, please can we get away from any self declaration that we ourselves or anything we say is “prophetic.”
Say it again after me–one of the clearest ways to identify a false prophet in the Christian tradition and the Bible and someone who says they are a prophet–KSH.
