Bill Johnson's False View of Repentance Examined - Digging Deeper: Andreas Wiget
New to AGTV • 5m 7s
Bill Johnson defines repentance as following, "“Re” means to go back. “Pent” is like the penthouse, the top floor of a building. Repent, then, means to go back to God’s perspective on reality."
In this video I examine Bill Johnson's false understanding of Biblical repentance. Bill Johnson is a leading figure of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California.
Here is the full quote from Bill Johnson's book "The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind," "Renewing the mind begins with repentance. That is the gateway to return to our original assignment on earth. Jesus said, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” To many Christians, repent refers to having an altar call where people come forward and weep at the altar and get right with God. That is a legitimate expression of repentance, but it’s not what the word repentance means. “Re” means to go back. “Pent” is like the penthouse, the top floor of a building. Repent, then, means to go back to God’s perspective on reality. And in that perspective there is a renewal, a reformation that affects our intellect, our emotions, and every part of our lives. Without repentance we remain locked into carnal ways of thinking."
