Is Sozo healing safe and biblical? The real roots and history of Sozo: Randy Clark of Toronto Blessing, jungle and barnyard animal behaviors, Bethel Church, Argentina and more…
HISTORY OF SOZO “In 1997, Randy Clark, a healing evangelist, held meetings at Bethel Church. At that time, Pastor Clark would send a team to train a congregation how to be prayer servants.

Updated: Gnostic heresy…an interesting find in a study Bible leads to further clarification concerning the public ‘divinity’ of Christ discussion and Bethel Church (pastor is Bill Johnson). A link found!

The best answer we received was a direction to the Bethel Church… Read More

Source: http://blogs.christianpost.com/grace-under-fire/birds-of-a-feather-flock-together-10395/ “…for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness”? (2 Corinthians 6:14) In chapter 12 of When Heaven Invades Earth: A Practical Guide to a Life of Miracles, Bill Johnson, Senior Pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California writes: I have seen the small gems that suddenly appeared in the people’s hands as they worshipped God.
