Why is it so Difficult to Pass the Baton?

Why is it so difficult to pass the baton to the next generation? Why do Christian Leaders (Bishops “Pastors” Elders) have so much trouble passing the baton when the time comes?

Christian Lust for the Supernatural by Steve Crosby

I am thankful for forty years of charismatic heritage. I have experienced the best and the worst that universe can offer. If, like Paul, I had to show off my “supernatural credentials,” or my resume of “supernatural experiences,” I could hold my own. I choose to boast of something, er, Someone else. Today, the lust for manifestations, and self-centered, insecurity driven, need for a “touch” from His presence, etc., are leading more...
