How do you view overall the modern Movement within some baptist Churches called Pentacostalism?
1: Which particular group/denom??
2: Which particular local church in which particular group/denom?
Its very difficult to answer the question, since there is such a wide range of differences regarding pentacostalism
Some pentacostal churches I have visited were very similar to a moderate Baptist church in regard to 98% of thier beliefs. And the differences, such as belief in faith healing and glosslalia, were handled very low key and not imposed on anyone.
Others, however could go all the way in the other direction to to the point of being a full blown heretical cult.
Its very difficult to answer the question.
It kinda like someone asking... "What is a local Baptist church like?
I just re-read your opening question.
You said... (bolding mine)
I didnt catch that at first.
Honestly, I've never encountered a Baptist church that allows the standard pentalcostal sign giftes to be practiced.
there are some "Baptacostalists" who would think along the lineof say a Dr wayne Grudem on spiritual gifts operating today!
Think 3 main Baptist responses on this usually:
Canon is closed all spiritual sign gifts ceased after Apostolic era period
Canon closed spitiual gifts "might" operate today, but ONLY in special situations/cases not normitive for today
Canon closed ALL spiritual gifts can be in operation, MUST be in biblical order and practice though!
Of the options you posted....
This is the only one that I would think could be legit....
