Vision casting is not a biblical teaching. Every time the religious marketers use Proverbs 29:18 it is misquoted. Here is what it says, “Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.”
This passage is talking about the revelation of God in the Scripture and His law as given to us. When people reject the teachings of the Bible then they cast off restraint.
The Pastor is not to be a visionary leader using a corporate business model but is a shepherd who feeds and nutures the his congregation with wholesome, Christ-centered biblical teaching.
The congregation is taught to “aggressively defend that unity and vision” that comes from the prophetic vision of the Pastor. Sadly, that means when people question biblically what is going on then they are marginalized, attacked and even evicted.
The end result is that you no longer go to church to hear God’s Word but to promulgate the Pastors so called vision (and what is scary) is that people seem to have more of a loyalty to the “vision caster” instead of loyalty to Christ and the Bible.
