Why I’m not a charismatic…

One of the reasons I began writing/blogging again, is because some fringey charismatic/word-faith/speak it-claim-it teaching was taught at my church recently. My previous post was also inspired by this occurrence. In the weeks that followed, I did a lot of reading and listening to Bible teachers who have studied this global “renewal” movement, and so here I provide some resources which have given me a better understanding of this religious movement and its theology.
