Seems “mantles” are all the rage these days. Recently Mormon Glenn Beck was presented “a new mantle for the future” from NAR lying “prophet” Chuck Pierce. A few days ago Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, received her own mantle. Amy Spreeman of Berean Research tells us what the mantle thing is all about:
Anne Graham Lotz is now the next Chairman of the National Day Of Prayer, having received a ” Prayer Mantle of Leadership” from her predecessor, Shirley Dobson. An interesting choice of words, “Prayer Mantle.” We Christians tend to use a lot of words that can leave those who don’t share our faith scratching their heads. But “mantle” is one of those words that tend to be used by a subset of Christians, and that word can and should cause more than a head scratch.
Are there biblical mantles?
