    "An overwhelming number of Southern Baptists report that they possess the gift of being a "private evangelist." They share the gospel, just not with anybody publicly. "Sometimes the Holy Spirit just comes upon me while I'm watching TV and I repeat the Roman Road out loud to nobody in particular," reported one practitioner."

    I'm going to reference this on my own weblog!

    I figured that my main spiritual gifts were eating and sleeping. Maybe I was right after all.

    Those reported new spiritual gifts bleed of subjectivism. What those believers need to do is find their place in the local congregation and exercise their real spiritual gifts. But who am I to judge at this point? Maybe I have the new spiritual gift of...

    I personally liked the gift of "Personal Giving". It says something like, most practitioners give to themselves at least 90% of their money!

    Could it be then, that some are not tithing their 10%? I don't know...

    Yeah, sleeping is definitely my spiritual gift. But it's not like I need that much sleep. I only need 8 hours of sleep a day. Then I get 8 more at night, and I'm fine.

    For those who might have missed it the post was a spoof on the so called "Private Prayer Language".

    I would say that if God says to do something then do it. A friend of mine tells about the time a friend of his on the mission field was compelled to go to a village and when the man arrived at the village he started singing about Jesus and a man walked up. A man he met in the village told him that he had a dream about Jesus that night. That man became a believer in Christ that day.
