Joni and Friends

Joni Eareckson Tada suffered a serious accident while diving in her late teens, and God used this in order to sterngthen her faith. God is now using Joni “and friends” to strengthen the faith of millions, and to witness to millions of people around the world. In her 1976 autobiography, Joni, she tells of her struggle against quadriplegia and depression, and how God blessed her. Over the next several decade Joni wrote two more books, making an autobiographical trilogy. In the second book, A Step Further, Joni wrote about her encounter with charismatics who told her that it was God’s will to heal her; and that if she didn’t get healed then it was because she didn’t have enough faith. Joni is an accomplished mouth artist, a holder of seven honorary doctorates and various awards, an author of over fifty books, founder of Joni and Friends (JAF), a Christian ministry to disabled people and their families, which has now grown into JAF International Disability Center.

Doctrine Matters

Kurt Hutchison says of himself, “I was a Charismatic for 15 years and a strong word-of-faither for the last year or so. It was the extreme teachings of the word-of-faith movement that eventually caused me to exit the movement altogether.” (From Confessions of an Ex-Charismatic.) Kurt has compiled a Handy Guide to False Charismatic Christian Teachings.
