I notice in an earlier thread that the subject of the gospel is discussed in regard to its meaning. It brought up this thought... Recently I had a family leave my church because they wanted to be members of a "full gospel" church. I'm not sure who originated the term, but I find it to be condescending. It implies that a church that doesn't practice speaking in tongues, slain in the spirit, etc. does not preach the full gospel. Those who use the term to describe themselves seem to be spiritually aloof. If this term is proper and correct, maybe we non-charismatic Baptists are preaching just half the gospel...or maybe three-fourths...or seven-eighths. What do you think?
