    We are all Charismatics because:

    1. We have been born again by the Spirit.

    2. We have been gifted by the Spirit.

    2. We have being indwelt by the Spirit.

    This new topic is at the request of Tinytim who visited my blog and made the request.

    I have no problem with that at all TC; Its when they begin to utter in "unknown" tongue without an interpeter, is the problem. I certainly do not believe when someone is "praising God", that he/she is out of their mind. Some churches frown on praising God, but to each its own, I guess.

    BBob,

    No, to be a full fledged Charismatic you would have had to use the title, Holy Ghost instead of Holy Spirit! :D

    Well, the Holy Ghost has never come over me in such a way to make me start babbling jibberish, or dance unconrollably, or laugh uncontrollably, or fall out on the floor against my will.

    Or to be "drunk" without the aid of alcohol.

    God hasnt given me a million dolars, nor have I "commanded" him to. In fact, I have never 'commanded" God to do anything.

    God hasnt healed all of ailments, so I reckon that "His grace is suffient"

    In fact, I still get colds and sometimes flu in the winter, although charismatics say that a christian should die only of old age, and never get sick.

    I dont wear Porter Wagner suits, and my wife doesnt have huge pink hair that stands 2 ft over her head like a helmet.

    Heck, I dont even have a Caddilac, a gold chain, or a ring other than my wedding ring.

    I have never "placed my hands on the TV set and recieved a blessing for it.

    Oh, and one more, I have never looked in the back seat while driving and suddenly seen the devil there riding with me...and I have never woke up in the middle of the night with my bed surrounded by demons.

    NO, I dont think that I am charismatic.

    Thank you.. I believe the pentecostals hijacked the true meaning of Charismatic...

    I agree with you 100 percent...
    BTW, my spiritual gifts are Administration, Teaching, and Pastoring.. in that order...
    I desire no gift that the Holy Spirit doesn't want me to have.

    I have been indwelt, and work daily to be filled with the Holy Ghost... and no I am not talking about an experience.. I am talking about allowing the Holy Ghost to fill my being.

    I am sealed by the Holy Spirit, and one day the Holy Spirit will deliver me home.

    I praise God for the gift of the Holy Spirit.. I praise him for the comforter, and my guide...
