The fundamental requirement of Pentecostalism is that one be born again. [8] The new birth is received by the grace of God through faith in Christ as Lord and Savior. [9] In being born again, the believer is regenerated, justified, adopted into the family of God, and the Holy Spirit's work of sanctification is initiated. [10] Pentecostal soteriology is generally Arminian rather than Calvinist. [11] The security of the believer is a doctrine held within Pentecostalism; nevertheless, this security is conditional upon continual faith and repentance. [12] Pentecostals believe in both a literal heaven and hell, the former for those who have accepted God's gift of salvation and the latter for those who have rejected it. [13] For most Pentecostals there is no other requirement to receive salvation.

And alternately, some of my worst experiences within Pentecostal tradition have been through people running amuck giving out “words.” We have had to step into situations pastorally on a couple of occasions where we felt like individuals within our community gave words that were manipulative or misleading Marvels & Miracles: God Wrought in the Ministry for Forty-Five Years. At least a quarter of the world’s 2 billion Christians are thought to be renewalists—an umbrella term referring to Pentecostals and charismatics as a group, the Pew Forum cited (World Christian Database) The Journey (Devotional Book 2). Catholics have always been open to God's working in miracles and healings, though they have usually confined these happenings to Saints or shrines. The name Pentecostal, though very accurate because the renewal is concerned with everything that the Holy Spirit came to do, has had problems because the word Pentecostal has too many unfortunate associations, and in time the renewal began to be referred to as the charismatic renewal God's Dreams: Was My Dream Last Night From God. A word should be added about the relation of baptism with the Holy Spirit to the gifts of the Spirit. Charismatics often state that baptism in the Spirit is initiation into the dynamic dimension; the gifts of the Spirit are dynamic manifestation Sound of A Mighty Rushing Wind.

There were nearly 50,000 participants in this 5-day conference. One speaker proudly hailed this conference as "the largest and most inclusive ecumenical assembly in the history of American Christianity." Almost half of the participants were Roman Catholics. A newspaper article published in 1977 (AP), reported that there were 10 million charismatics in America (5 million Classical Pentecostals and 5 Million New Pentecostals) The Rise to Respectability: Race, Religion, and the Church of God in Christ. It is interesting to note the similarities between Joachim's "age of the Spirit" and certain neo-pentecostal teachings such as the "Latter Rain doctrine" and the "signs and wonders" movment, as well as the apocalyptic pronouncements of many alleged Marian apparitions and "prophetic" movements within the Church which have sprung from the Charismatic movement, which speak of a "new Church of the Spirit" or a "new age of spiritual illumination." Spiritworks : Charismatic Practices and the Bible. In contrast to this, the Reformers taught that a man is accepted before God, not on the basis of an inherent, intrinsic righteousness in the believer, but rather on the basis of a righteousness which is outside the believer and alien to the believer —namely, the righteousness which is in heaven in Jesus Christ before God's throne Emanuel Swedenborg: The Development of His Thought.

"People mainly make decisions on the basis of emotions, not rational or theological reasons," opines Robert Hosken, a protestant missionary to Russia and founder of agape-biblia.org, an online Russian Bible. "People may be attracted to orthodoxy or Catholicism by the spectacular rituals of either church, the 'smells and bells' of orthodoxy, or they may be driven away from Protestantism by disappointments, unfriendly personal treatment and so on." As a result, productivity grew, which led to increased profits and enabled employers to pay higher wages. In this way, the economy, the sciences, and technology reinforced each other. The chance to participate in the economic success of technological inventions was a strong incentive to both inventors and investors. The Protestant work ethic was an important force behind the unplanned and uncoordinated mass action that influenced the development of capitalism and the Industrial Revolution The Spirit of Honor. Jesus tells us in John's Gospel that the Holy Spirit is unpredictable and He moves as He sees fit. John 3:8 (NIV), "The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going." Who are we to tell the Holy Spirit how He should manifest Himself? Let us not become like the Pharisees on the day of Pentecost critical of those who appeared drunk with wine Holiness and the Human Element. The consistency of the Bible and word of God where God repeated He's desiring to guide and feed us (believers) with God's word abundantly with all understand.

Unnecessary controversy can be avoided if people recognize that ‘baptism in the Spirit', like many words, can have more than one meaning, depending on the context. Paul used it at least once for ‘salvation', Jesus for ‘service' What! Speak Through Me?. They are tools, not toys.” The baptism in the Holy Spirit is as basic to charismatic beliefs as it is to traditional Pentecostal theology His Manifest Presence: Moving from David's Tabernacle to Solomon's Temple. These apostles were believed capable of imparting spiritual gifts through the laying on of hands. [162] There were prominent participants of the early Pentecostal revivals, such as Stanley Frodsham and Lewi Pethrus, who endorsed the movement citing similarities to early Pentecostalism. [161] However, Pentecostal denominations were critical of the movement and condemned many of its practices as unscriptural The Way In Is the Way On. Indeed both the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation are in practice relegated to second class status by the emphasis on a "Baptism of the Holy Spirit" considered as distinct from them. Some of our Catholic Pentecostals do not appear to understand that: "the initial gift of the Spirit (in Holy Baptism) is none the less real for not being experienced or accompanied by charismatic manifestations; and that experience cannot be taken as the criteria of truly living in the Spirit."15 Nor can the gift of tongues claimed by the Pentecostals bear the theological weight which their practice assigns to it A Little Piece of Heaven. As I got older, I rejected not only that notion but the entire dispensational eschatology on which those ideas are based (I will save my rant for later on why dispensational in any form should have no place in Pentecostal churches).

Even some of those present admitted to surprise at finding Catholics - known for their formal liturgy - worshiping so expressively. "The Holy Spirit works in crazy ways," Georgia Gill, a Jacksonville surgeon who converted to Catholicism in 2007, said after a recent service. "I didn't know this existed in the Catholic Church."
