Rod and Bryan continue their discussion with James Rozak, the author of the Morning Mercy website, in part 2 of their interview
James Rozak was the Associate Pastor of Edmonton Word Assembly for 10 years, serving alongside Eugene Braun. James believed and preached the message as best he knew.
But in February of 2013, the unthinkable happened and James made a decision with his wife to leave the message of William Branham. Issues discussed on this podcast include:
- Concerns with the emphasis by ministers on William Branham, rather than Jesus Christ;
- Reaction of other ministers to James’ focus on helping people that were subject to abuse;
- The problem with abuse in the message and how ministers deal with it;
- Cognitive dissonance and the impact on Christians who are still in the message;
- The testimony of Alfred Pohl, a man who questioned whether people were actually being healed in William Branham’s meetings.
