Why I’m not a charismatic…

A reason I’ve begun writing/blogging again is some charismatic/word-of-faith ideology has been allowed to be taught and advocated for at our church. My previous post was also inspired by this movement. So as a followup I provide these resources which Biblically and reasonably counter the errors of this global phenomenon, which now is beckoning our churh as well.

Here are some resources I’ve read and viewed in the past and recently, that have encouraged me to follow Jesus and build His Kingdom, whilst avoiding modern american charismatic/pentecostal ideas, practice & expressions.
