Veterans are encouraged to wear their old uniforms. For informa- Revival Continued from Page B9 put emotion before reason and are contrary to orderly worship dictated by the Bible. "This is a feel-good culture. If you make them feel good they think something is happening," said Fisher, a board member of Personal Freedom Outreach, a nonprofit association created to educate Christians about aber- i-ational and false teachings. Hill responded: "A physical manifestation is just how someone responds to the presence of God touching them. It doesn't make any difference to me if somebody falls down. I want to see them when they stand up, living for God." Hill declined to comment on former Brownsville church member Vicky Conroy's claim she had been told to fake manifestations. She is among hundreds who have left the church because they disagree with various aspects of the revival. While acknowledging departures, Kilpatrick said the church has grown to about 5,000 members from 2,000. "When God breaks out in a major way like this, people are going to come (who are) desperate," Kilpatrick said. There's a lot of people who don't want that type of people in their churches. They don't want the demon-possessed coming. They don't want the drug addicts, the prostitutes." Brownsville's financial practices have brought criticism. The revival appeals for contributions, and separate ministries established by Hill, Kilpatrick and Michael Brown, president of the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry, sell books, videos and other revival-related items. An investigation two years ago by the Pensacola News Journal found the revival had pumped millions into their coffers with little or no accountability and without paying sales tax on the items sold. Since the News Journal reports, sales taxes are being paid, and two of the ministries, Hill's Together in the Harvest and Kilpatrick's Feast of Fire, have joined the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, a watchdog group formed by Billy Graham and others. Revival leaders blamed state revenue officials for giving them conflicting information on whether sales tax should be paid. tion, call (409) 925-2552.
