This movement is commonly known as the " Charismatic Movement ." In an April 7, 1991 sermon, Hinn revealed that he periodically visits Kuhlman's grave and that he is one of the few with a key to gain access to it. But renewalists and evangelicals are not synonymous. I have said this before: You can take the Charismatic Movement; you can take the "Seeker-Friendly Church Growth" Movement, and somewhere in those movements there is a true church, not to be confused with the crowd.

I have written a brief guildeline on" How to Hear God without Getting Goofy" on my journal website: http://www.christianstraininglog.com. Like a lion, Peter who had trembled at the accusations of a maid servant, now came out into the street and preached the Gospel. (Premm 225-226) This was not the moment of Peters salvation, but it was the effect of actual grace helping him act and carry out the life of Christ brought by Sanctifying Grace.

I venture to answer, pearls and the pearl which he possesses, who has given up all things, and counted them as loss; "for which," says Paul, "I have counted all things but loss that I may win Christ; " by "all things" meaning the goodly pearls, "that I may win Christ," the one very precious pearl. As I contemplated this more, I became frustrated because I noticed that as a Protestant I was forced to “make it up every morning”, prove every doctrine from scripture, and could never be truly “set free” because I “knew the truth”.

Miracles in Scripture are never just for show. But when God is found in Scripture doing miracles, using human agent to perform miracles it is always with a specific purpose and Scripture is clear about what that purpose is: it is to authenticate the authority of those who speak for God. When I say “grounded”, I mean “by what” do you hold some knowledge “x”. Although often caricatured and reduced to speaking in tongues (glossolalia), prosperity, or snake handling, this volume reveals that the primary appeal of pentecostalism is divine healing and deliverance from demons.

Living in Western civilization has its disadvantages in the broad definition we have given to the word Christian. The Great Story, or Epic of Evolution, helps me understand how this gift of tongues is both a natural outgrowth of the human developmental journey (day language) and a gift of the Holy Spirit (night language). Lutherans, Methodists, and Congregationalists now often pray in Pentecostal style, with their hands raised to heaven, and few mainline churches are without healing prayers and services, something left to Lourdes pilgrims and Christian Scientists (and of course, Pentecostals) until a couple of decades ago.

What is experienced in community is developed in private. Be open to new ways in which God by the Spirit may be speaking to the church. In recent years, Assemblies of God leaders have made efforts to better include ethnic minorities, women, and young people in the life of the church at all levels. It has also afforded a prominent role to women leaders. In my opinion there also seems to be a subtle form of coercion in such admonitions as "If you are unwilling to receive the gift of tongues, you are putting a block on the Lord's work and the Holy Spirit will not be free to work in you."72 It seems strange that acceptance of this "gift" should be a requisite for the free operation of the Holy Spirit in the individual.

Hypollytus, Refutation of All Heresies, ch. 12) It is remarkable that the anticipate those of the Pentecostal-Charismatic movement, but truly so when one considers that many of them also adopted the "heresy of Noetus", or "modalism"- the idea that there is only one divine person in the Divinity and that Father, Son and Holy Spirit are merely three modes of expression of this one "hypostasis".
