From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Prot cult watch

An examination of the word-faith movement
by Richard Vincent
Evangelicalism meets New Age narcissism - believe it or not! Read it for yourself.

Lee Penn: An Episcopal priest, who is firmly opposed to the New Age movement and religious cultism, sent me this critique of the "word-faith" movement, a popular heresy among some Pentecostals. Leaders of the movement have included Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Paul Crouch, John Avanzini, Robert Tilton, Fred Price, and Benny Hinn.

I have known nothing of this movement before; based on the following description, it sounds quite New Age. The references in the following document are more than 10 years old -- the question is whether this movement has continued in its heresies, or whether it has turned back toward orthodoxy -- and I do not know the answer to that question.

Cultism comes in many deceptive forms.
