Leonard Sweet: A Good Choice For Pastor’s and Leader’s Conference?

Posted by nazarenepsalm113 on June 30, 2010

Is there a shortage of solid, Bible-grounded speakers for the Nazarene denomination? I have no objection to non-Nazarenes speaking to Nazarenes, but New Age sympathizer Leonard Sweet will be speaking at PALCON (pastors and leaders conference) at Northwest Nazarene University, July 27-30. I have previously written several posts warning about him. Here is a portion of the description of the conference:
“It is our vision to participate in a fresh move of God upon the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada. We minister in days with a unique opportunity to impact our world. This event has tremendous potential to shape and mold us more clearly into the people and church God envisions.”
Sweet will speak not only once, but twice, in the two major plenary sessions. Did Northwest Nazarene University staff specifically ask for him? Or is there someone else responsible for selecting Leonard Sweet to speak not only here, but apparently at other Nazarene events for pastors and students? Will Leonard Sweet hide his true beliefs when he speaks at the plenary sessions, by “playing it safe” and saying things that are more palatable for Nazarene pastors to hear? If so, is that acceptable, in spite of his ideology and the grossly New Age like flavor of several of his books?
