)-- It's the way of the world. Spells and witchcraft is powerful, but prayer is doubted. A powerful Damien being born is a thriller. A powerful Christ being born is considered a myth. Prophets in the church are doubted, while astrology charts can be found in most newspapers of the day. Christians are supposed to sit quietly in pews and expect suffering without Divine aid, while spirit guides, mediums, and meditation is all the rage. So, we should expect it to stay that way, right. Not according to author and minister Kenneth Clifton.
Liberty University Bible degree grad Clifton has an interesting ministry and message. While people can see churches on most street corners, his message is that most Christians are suffering the consequences of surrendering the supernatural aspect of their faith.
According to Clifton, the problems began when believers in God started believing in the world more than in God. "We, as Christians, say we believe the world came from the supernatural, Christ came from the supernatural, and the God supernaturally holds the earth together, " says Clifton. "However, ask them how often they pray for God to move mountains in their own life. Ask them if they believe the God that made and maintains every molecule on earth can empower those molecules to fight sickness or disease. Ask them if they believe the God that hold atoms together and rules over gravity can change those atoms or laws at will to care for His children."
This concern for the lack of supernatural understanding of the authority and power in Christ led Clifton to write The Christian Superhero Training Guide, a book that studies the supernatural aspect to God's past superheroes in the Bible, current day superheroes (modern day believers) and the arch foes they all must face (The Condemned - Demons, The Living Dead - The World, Biological Weapons - The Flesh, Faith Infection - Doubt, and Glory Sunspots - Pride) with solutions to overcome them.
Clifton says that one of the biggest problems with this whole issue is, in fact, the word "supernatural." "Maybe, we should say, instead, that it's natural for God to be Super and leave it at that."
Other books by Clifton include 30 Days of Providence (a collection of devotions, quotes, Scriptures and more), Life is Optional (another quote and Scripture filled devotional with confessions), A Nation Under God (official acknowledgement by God by every President and state of the USA and more), and Fear No Evil (a free download).
