What are some verses that tell us about our entertainment?
I have a dilemma. I have always considered myself a man of faith. Approximately a month ago, I realized that I was kidding myself and have refocused my attention to learning the scripture and my clarity on some issues has made itself achingly known. While I know I'm ill-prepared, I feel a desperation to evangelize my wife's parent's who have been attending a Pentecostal church for fourteen years. They speak in tongues, dance around, play music and learn very little about the true word.
I do not wish to debate about the Pentecostal religion.
What I am hoping to find here is some applicable experience.
How do you tell your elders, people you respect and love, that the path they have traveled for fourteen years has been leading them in the wrong direction. Away from works, away from effort of any kind aside from the glorification of their own faith.
and, what ever it is, work it out.
Yes thats when a prophecy is given through a tongue. Individual praying/worshipping in tongues, such as the disciples did at penetcost(in a group setting), is an entirely different matter.
I don't post much any more and almost never a statement or article from someone else. But this short statement from Patrick Mead speaks volumes.I agree! It's satans plan from the beginning of humanity, to separate us from the truth.
For 2000 years Christians have been on a relentless, tireless, exhaustive search for rules and regulations and procedures Jesus never left us while patently ignoring the two he did: love God and love each other.
I say amen!
