Once upon a time there was a princess called Gloria. Gloria was a lovely girl who was dearly loved by everyone, especially her father and mother, the King and Queen.

One day, Princess Gloria fell ill. The doctors were called and they came to treat her. After a number of whispered conversations among themselves, the doctors went to talk to the King and Queen.

“Your Majesties,” they said, “Princess Gloria is gravely ill. We are not able to do anything for her and it is very likely that she will die.”

“No!!!” shouted the King, and the Queen gasped with horror.

“There is one thing that might save the princess,” the doctor’s continued. “There is a flower growing in the forest of Ooga Booga. If someone fetched that flower and brought it back here, we could mix it into a medicine that we believe would make Princess Gloria completely well.”

I don't know quite what it is, but expose my kids to something, and they are keen as mustard to do it themselves.

Go to a dinosaur exhibit - suddenly we're drawing, talking and wanting to watch movies about dinosaurs.

Read about superheroes - suddenly we're (Jack, mostly) dressing up as superheros.

Watch Toy Story - suddenly cowboys and spacemen are the go.

What you are about to see is what happened after we took the car through a carwash...

FLASHBACK: Non-Scripture-Equivalent Prophecy 2 - Its value.

Third in a 2006 series on prophecy that does not need to be added to Scripture.

I think most cessationists would agree with me that their definition of prophecy is that it is Scripture-equivalent. To break that down further, that means that prophecy is a) as valuable as Scripture, b) as authoritative as Scripture and c) as accurate as Scripture. What's more, cessationists would argue this has always been the case, and God has always intended prophecy to be that way.

I disagree.
