Senator Chuck Grassley launched an investigation into how many big-name televangelists, many of whom use the Pentecostal style of worship, to provide detailed information about how money in their ministries was spent Daughters Arise: A Journal for Girls Approaching Womanhood. Such manifestations also confirm the Protestant in his sin of unbelief. Since the Pentecostal believes he has the Holy Spirit already (and can demonstrate it on cue), then who needs the Catholic Church Issues in Contempary Pentecostalism? So you get self-proclaimed "apostles" and "prophets" saying that "God is doing a new thing" and of course he is doing it through them. And that is how most of todays Neopentecostal sects started.

Although most scholars consider Pentecostalism clearly a part of Protestantism, early 20th century Pentecostals were often more in line with Restorationism -- teaching that the early church had fallen into complete apostasy and that God was restoring the original church. Early Pentecostals taught strict separation from "worldly" influences such as refraining from movies, dancing, cards, or public swimming pools, and at least some of them espoused Christian pacifism; these beliefs have been all but abandoned as Pentecostalism moved from being a fringe religion with a "wrong side of the tracks" reputation into the mainstream of American evangelicalism during the middle and late 20th century Sounds of Celebration. This phase of the charismatic movement claims to possess the power to perform mighty miracles, which promote "church growth."

His “finished work” theology of gradual progressive sanctification, which he announced in 1910, led to the formation of the Assemblies of God (AG) in 1914 Signs, Wonders and Miracles.

However, most Charismatics may or may not believe that to be the case, especially those in the Neo-Charismatic Renewal, who believe that there may or may not be an initial evidence when one is filled with the Holy Spirit. All three segments though, do agree that the gifts of the Holy Spirit as described in the New Testament are for today, and are to be practiced today. Even though I will be dealing mainly with the modern day Pentecostal renewal (first wave) or movement, we will be also looking at the "evidences" of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit before the twentieth century as well as touching on the Charismatic renewal (second wave) of the late sixties/early seventies, as well as the Neo-Charismatic renewal (third wave) of the early eighties pdf.

I am not saying that all the people in it are not Christians, some of them are, but those things that define the Pentecostal Movement are not Biblical.
