What’s in a Name?

Thank you for continually producing an inspiring and anointed magazine. In addition to your magazine, however, your commitment to utilizing other forms of media such as your top-notch website and social media sites is to be commended. It is refreshing to see a Christian organization at the forefront of communication technology. Finally, the article “What’s in a Name?” (February) by publisher Steve Strang really spoke to me and should be read by every Christian business owner. Thanks again for all that you do.

Filming God is a Challenge

The article by C. Hope Flinchbaugh, “Filming God” (February), is a discernment challenge for Christians. I wonder if there is a mandate for believers to follow unseen angel spirits when the Bible clearly warns that Satan comes as an angel of light. Galatians 1 warns us very clearly about angels. The [former] Toronto Vineyard church [now called Catch the Fire Toronto] is “another” gospel to me. God told us to “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1). Darren Wilson is on dangerous territory, I believe. Is Satan in the church deceiving Christians?

We Like Hitting the Target!

The January issue of Charisma is a major winner. Almost every article was exceptional, and so critical as well. Forgiveness is essential to being a Christian, and the applications were on target. I also really appreciated the refresher on the history of the Bible. Just wish I could remember all the fascinating details. Thank you for a wonderful magazine.

Dick Eastman

Thank you for giving us an update on Dick Eastman and his wife, Dee (January online). Years ago I went to a conference in Los Angeles where Dick was the speaker. He gave all of us a prayer map. Oh, how it blessed me to know that I could pray for the whole world instead of only my little corner of the world. Thank you, Dick Eastman! I pray for your ministry.

Daisy Collins,
Linn Creek, Mont.
