In this episode of Off the Record, Daniel Kolenda revisits the topic of modern day apostles (as promised) from his previous podcast about the New Apostolic Reformation. While confronting the question, "Are there apostles in the church today?" Daniel also addresses important related topics. He provides a short primer on what apostles are and what they do. He talks about the potential for abuse of authority in the church and addresses the important concern about protecting the closed cannon of Scripture. He provides some helpful insight into the debate over the cessation of miraculous gifts and provides a clear explanation for the different kinds of apostles described in Scripture. After watching this episode, viewers will have a new appreciation for the nuance surrounding this subject and a balanced, Biblical understanding of what the Bible has to say about the apostolic gifting.
