Indeed, the Pentecostals have a strong attraction for those cut off from their cultural roots and traditional religious practices. People can find a warm welcome, joyful, rhythmical music and personal contact with other members who have witnessed to their faith ; they can see miracles taking place during services and gatherings, which seem to show that God is present and still at work today download Divine Callings: Understanding the Call to Ministry in Black Pentecostalism pdf. This however also gives a severely restricted view of the Charismatic Movement, for despite the Charismatic Movement having its beginning within Pentecostalism, charismatics are now found in almost every denomination. There are charismatic Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Roman Catholics and more. The great difficulty that there is in defining the Charismatic Movement is down to the fact that it is not a denomination, but a movement download. Paul learned this truth when God explained why his thrice repeated prayer for personal healing was not granted (2 Corinthians 12:1-10); and, also, when one of Paul’s faithful helpers, Trophimus, was unable to accompany him because of sickness (2 Timothy 4:20). When we pray for healing for ourselves or others, we must never forget that such healing is always God’s prerogative based upon what He knows is best for each of His children, not upon “demanding” or “claiming” such healing as do the Charismatics online. Charismatics assert that the mission of the Church is praise: "Praise is the raison d��tre of the Church." 39 Although praise is certainly and undeniably something which men owe to their Creator in justice, this can hardly be considered the reason, sine qua non, for which Christ instituted his Church. On the contrary, Our Lord did not found the Church in order to procure for Himself a ready-made fan club; He founded it in order to perpetuate his work of Redemption for all time download.

Given our characteristic concerns that faith is always grounded in experiential reality, there is an understandable anti-intellectual bent in some Pentecostal communities—especially toward those of us who have been to “cemeteries” (I mean, seminaries!) I think some of that suspicion has been well-founded, insofar that Pentecostalism began as a movement from the margins, from outside the walls of the academy and institutional religion online. Their coming together is made possible through the theological ignorance of many of those involved, through their rejection of biblical separation, and also through the charismatic emphasis on experience rather than doctrine.

I think Pentecostals should understand the unique contours of their tradition and embrace the distinctions that go along with it.
