There are people who are now coming out of the woodwork, exposing IHOP’s heresies and how it has destroyed their families and/or has left them broken. How do these people do know for sure? They are former IHOP interns AND LEADERS. They’re family members of current IHOP interns. They’re a lot of different groups of people speaking the truth.
I recommend you visit this blog and read for yourself.
There was a blog done by SadParent. This parent’s son went to IHOP, became a teacher/leader and when SadParent voiced her concerns that “IHOP may be a cult”, this son cut off 100% of communication with her after speaking with older, wiser counsel …according to his final communique to her. I know that she has endured 3 or 4 years of silence as a result of the IHOP cousel given to her son. Who gave the counsel? We may never know. Question: What kind of “Christian” organization advises its followers to dishonor their parents?
She is not the only parent or family member who has “lost” a loved one to IHOP. After reading the post I’ve listed above, I firmly believe that the IHOP walls are beginning to crumble. And to God be the glory when they do!
