Yeah. "Yoy yoy yoy." I always say.
And then there's about the most shameful thing I've seen a charismatic do in God's name, which I can't bring myself to embed.
So, think about these:
- God dropped by over there a while back — wish you'd been there. This is a charismatic constant. I mean to write a post on that, but charismatic addicts are signing up to chase after a God who's coy, evasive, and on the run.
- This guy can thank Wayne Grudem and that whole gang of charismatics, reformed or otherwise. What are the constant refrains of that lot? "Don't quench the Spirit"; "As long as it is not against Scripture"; "Open yourself to the supernatural." Well, fine. So is there a verse that says, in so many words, that one can't do what this clone is doing? See? There you go. There's their ticket, and that's why big name charismatic and charismatic-enablers are slow to denounce what they really should denounce.
- By contrast, if you affirm that Scripture is sufficient, and that no one has the authority to do in God's name what is not directly authorized by Scripture — and if you therefore affirm that all our public meetings should center around God's living self-revelation in His Word... then stuff like this could never take hold.
