Bill Johnson’s Sermon on the renewed mind – http://www.cscc.org.sg/sermon/the-renewed-mind/
Learnt its about having faith in God for him to work through me as vessles for his glory, that he enables what he commands. The more it is impossible in what I do, the more he gets the glory.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
After reading critics on Bill Johnson and listening to his sermon, I still find his sermons refreshing to listen to.
He also rebukes those he cannot approve i.e Jason Westerfield who turned new age.
In 2008, Jason Westerfield wrote his testimony. God worked through him but his heart changed. His testimony conclusion did not reflect very well and showed greed for money.
He turned New Age and resulted in Bill Johnson rebuking him
Praying for his restoration like Benny Hinn and Paula White.
Its interesting to note some not so common practices attributed to them
