What is your opinion of Charisma Magazine?

Have you ever been to this website? If so, what is your opinion of it? All opinions are welcome.

Does this website like Benny Hinn, TD Jakes, Charismatics, Billy Graham, Pope Francis, and others all at the same time? I am not absolutely sure of this, but it seems to.

Link to Charisma Magazine below.

And even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then, as I imagine that one could find a good article there every now and then, too.

Even a broke clock is right twice a day.

Scroll down at the site.

Is the Presbyterian churchs’ agenda anti-semitic?

Really?

Broad Brushstroke?

It’s a magazine. It publishes what sells. That’s all you need to know.

Benny Hinn just fell out of a B-52 because he’s the BOMB!

After several years and associations, I came to this conclusion:

"What I'm talking about is the charismatic movement that offers to God unacceptable worship, distorted worship. It blasphemes the Holy Spirit. It attributes to the Holy Spirit even the work of Satan. People are caught up in it, deceived, led astray."

I really wanted to believe it, believe the people, believe the Catholic priests involved in it, but after some personal spiritual disasters and studying scripture, I had to stay away from all of it. There is an ego factor. I noticed myself and others seemed to think we'd gotten all these "gifts" and were further along the road to heaven than ordinary church people.

The article is entitled, “Messianic Jews: Presbyterian Church Agenda Anti-Semitic.” The article immediately clarifies it’s referring to the PCUSA, (which happens to be home to 10 times more people than PCA and OPC combined, although it’s collapsing), and describes official Jew-hating policies of the PCUSA as a whole.

It’s an article warning people about what breaks marriages.

That’s what I thought, too ... although one can do everything “right” and still have a spouse who just goes wrong.

All opinions are welcome

Yes indeed, I read a few of the opinions.

Most do not seem to have a factual source for their opinion. That is okay of course since an opinion is not fact based.

I see a comparison between the Tea Party Movement and the Charismatic Church Movement.

The Tea Party Patriots’ faith in the words of the Constitution annoys some people. The only thing the Tea Party Movement asks from government is that they function constitutionally by following the words in the Constitution.

The Charismatic Church Members’ faith in the words of the New Testament Covenant annoys some people. The only thing the Charismatic Movement’s belief in the scriptures asks from society is that their praise and worship services be a bit noisier.

Christianity is not a religion to Charismatic Church Members; Christianity is a way of life guided by faith and grace of the New Testament Covenant.

That’s my opinion.

I agree with the comments from both of you. It is basically an article that says “don’t neglect your spouse.”

That’s good advice.

It’s in charisma magazine, so a person can find some good stuff there.

One isn't going to agree with every article in any magazine. A person deeply opposed to charismatic manifestations would probably find a lot of disagreement with Charisma, but the article Xzins linked is actually very pragmatic, doesn't even require Christianity to be common sense.

Its a Christian magazine. I read to see what’s happening in the Christian world. So far I haven’t seen any endorsements of heresy

I find your opinion reasonable. There are many flavors of the Charismatic style; some not too impressive, others quite challenging (in a good way). I do prefer the style of worship, but it wouldn’t hurt to knock a few decibels off the volume.

I read Charisma magazine just to keep my finger on the pulse of various issues and to ID trends within the movement.

They do call out some (not all) of the shenanigans that are going on in that world.
