Bishop James A. Johnson Concerning our Pentecostal Fathers

Part 4:

Here's an interesting quote from Part 2: “If you do not have confidence in the fathers then most likely you are going to be out on your own limb, plotting your own course, traveling your own road, devising your own lifestyle. You must be able to find some of your fathers whose faith you’re willing to follow in order to understand how you are supposed to walk. I have, among my collection of things, a particular book that contains quotations from some of our Pentecostal fathers, and I’m willing to tell anybody, ‘I am not a self made man, and my doctrine is not my own.’ There are men of God who were before me that I had respect for, and I respected things they taught and things they said to me personally. If you don’t have confidence in the fathers then you’re liable to get messed up in your mind at anytime. Find some of the fathers in whom you have confidence and try to adhere to their teaching.” –Bishop James A. Johnson (3-28-2008)
