Allen Hood says that at IHOPU you can learn to prophecy thru a camera. No, not to a camera. But, thru one. I’ll leave you to figure that one out. Perhaps it is all part and parcel of an anti-intellectualism which is especially virulent in the radical Charismatic camp (Hood is the ONLY ONE in the ‘faculty’ who has earned an M.Div.). He says, “Students don’t get a degree but do get a media anointing.” A media anointing eh? Sounds like IHOP’s ‘university’ has figured out how to advertise for free.
“A university is an institution of higher education and research, which grants degrees in a variety of subjects. A university provides both undergraduate and postgraduate education.” Now call me unspiritual…but apparently IHOP has faulted on the VERY FIRST definition of a university, which is ‘grants degrees’ (we won’t go into the necessity of postgraduate ed….just too easy). Perhaps just as IHOP is tasked with changing the face of Christianity in one generation so they are also now charged with changing the VERY definition of higher education.
