~and frankly, what you posit is one of the hallmarks of a cult.
I tend to side with you on this. The first thought I had is some teenage girls hung up on Buffy the Vampire Slayer or the Twilight movies. Demonic possession and influence is a very real happening and has never abated even from Christ's time on earth. Anyone who ventures to deal with this problem better be in the correct frame of mind, yielded to Christ, prayerful, sometimes fasting, and at all times claiming the blood of Christ over all. It must be a special calling and definitely NOT for attention getting.
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
Here some lengthy information about Larson from the Christian Research Institute:
I guess I'll have to try again to ferret out my dissertation from the chaos.
and then search through the 20 pages of bibliography.
Speaking of proving things . . . please PROVE where I said
". . . some ridiculous statement that anyone can tell who is demon possessed and who is sick."
or is it as it appears . . .
that now that most of the Proddys have consigned by default the FR Rel Forum into a sub-department of the Vatican in terms of number of threads and lines of text in behalf of the Vatican Cult vs the number of lines in behalf of Proddy interests . . .
that the RC's feel quite free to engage in their old tricks of insisting that Proddys said things they didn't say?
Evidently, as usual, the only kosher piety in your eyes is that involved in kissing the toes of the statues of the Vatican Cult's Ishtar Goddess idols.
Are you really sure you want to start tyhis game up again?
I read tjhis Quix, things that make you go hmmmm.....
That article from the Christian Research Institute is full of hogwash.
It is written from a fairly rigid and wholesale bias against modern day operations of Holy Spirit’s gifts etc. It is written by the Cessationist perspective that has increased dramatically in that organization since Walter Martin’s death.
Walter at least had some respect for the Charismatic gifts because his throat Dr was commissioned to be a missionary to the Middle East as a result of a message in tongues with interpretation. Walter—with natural proclivities against such was impressed enough with the realities involved, he had to adjust his theology a bit. Sadly, what he learned did not survive him in the organization.
That hit pieces is not worth the pixels it shows up on.
1 Cor 12:10 (KJV)
I don't much like these discussions, but I happened to see your comment (#49) and noticed that you unfortunately picked discernment as a gift not included in the list in 1 Cor. As can be seen from the above quote, it is indeed included.
This is asked of Quix. sorry about that rocky
Exactly why I don’t like these threads. Sorry I got involved. I was just trying to point out your oversight.
Go on about your hate fight without me.
Where did I declare that XYZ person had this or that gift and WUV person did not have that gift?
In terms of my own giftings, I’m learning to not even acknowledge the truth about such things on FR.
I was blessed with a very anointed fellow from OKLAHOMA this week . . . way above average on humility as well as anointing and giftings in a list of ways. I got to spend probably 9 or more hours with him Thursday.
God has confirmed my walk with Him in a list of ways and again recently. His confirmation is sufficient.
Others, if they are determined to get wound up about such . . . can go . . . chase a duck, as mother used to say.
It’s my experience on such threads that for many folks,
denominational dogma, propaganda, heresies, rigid biases . . . idolized hogwash
takes precedence over Scripture fairly routinely.
Who posted the hate first? Was it not Quix? I have asked him who is he to say what gifts God has given to His people? Holing someone accountable is not hate.
Accusing me of hate at this point is off the wall.
I have to work at it, usually, to hate what God hates.
Hate is not attractive to me.
I reserve it for such creatures as satan, Shrillery, OThugh—and not so much the latter two but what they do, believe, stand for and their treason.
