comment Which Christian sects promote faith healing?
There is no question when it comes to the issue, I am biased. However that's not how I meant that -- what I was suggesting was a caricature at the far end of a spectrum, but I also know that what most people from non Christian backgrounds including yourself imagine this belief to be is likely to be more like that caricature than anything else and the place you'll find anything resembling that is in Pentecostalism.

comment How is Derek Prince viewed by mainstream Christianity
@Wikis: Anybody who believes, practices and promotes the idea that daemons are more than just active in the world but that they can possess and captivate born again Christians is bound to run foul of a large swath of Christianity. Add that to how many controversies he came down on the wrong side of, and even if he switched positions the right way on some of them, he changed positions several times on a few things leaving even people who wanted to accept him skeptical about where his anchor was floating.

Please see the discussion on this question type on meta: Is methodology advice to pastors too subjective to deal with here?

comment How is Derek Prince viewed by mainstream Christianity
@Wikis I'm sure this is a case of huge diversity and depends on your circles, but at the least one would have to say he is only accepted by some parts of mainstream Christianity. All the circles and traditions I am aware of rate him somewhere between shaky and outright charlatan -- with a few exceptions mostly from stay-at-home-watch-christianity-on-tv folks. At the very least, Mike's observations about how a few specific names would likely view the guy is pretty right on. I wouldn't call those guys representative of all of mainstream Christianity, but they are certainly major players in it.

comment How can a Christian seek out the best Homilists/Preachers?
This should be a blog topic. This is fantastic content, although I agree it's not expert QnA material.

@PeterTurner: Amen to that. It's not the lies he could say about me but the manifest truth about me that I'd worry about.

I'm going to have to -1 this as not useful for not addressing the issue of Satan being known as "the accuser of the saints". It would be fair to say Catholic's don't see him playing a role in the final judgement, but you would need to state what those kind of verses DO mean and in what sense he is allowed to accuse or prosecute whether on the final day or before.

comment What is the scriptural basis for the idea that salvation can still be obtained after death?
Can you edit a short quote from that source into this question and indicate whether you want to hear an E.O. defense of the doctrine or some other response to it?
