What is wrong with Assemblies of God churches?
I go to an Assembly of God church and everyone is very nice and holy spirit filled. The pastor and his wife have a very close relationship with God and they are not afraid to go all out in worship and get filled with the holy spirit. What's so bad about it? (I read some posts on the forum and someone thought that it was scary that Sarah Palin was part of the Assemblies of God church..why??)

Re: What is wrong with Assemblies of God churches?
I have not known anyone from the national Assemblies of God denomination since the 1980s, but back then they were pretty solid, I had no gripes with their doctrine.

I have no idea if they slid into being lukewarm now or not.

I know nothing of Sarah Palin except who she was and her daughter had that child (out of wedlock?).

Does Sarah present a Godly walk or are people throwing stones at her for a particular reason?

Re: What is wrong with Assemblies of God churches?
Yes there is speaking in tongues, which is said to be our unique language to God. During worship there is speaking in tongues and some people receive visions such as the holy spirit surrounding the earth or other very symbolic things that i can't remember. It makes me love God even more when I hear these testimonies, I live how Gpd pictures things for us :).

There is also healing taking place at the altar through the power of the holy spirit. One time my mom asked for prayer about her fear and she said she saw a vision of an explosion of light. Now she hardly ever gets scared (she used to get panic attacks when she was by herself but not anymore)

However, I have never experienced recieving a vision or speaking in tounges. Another time my mom saw a vision of our family being protected around a cross surrounded by flames. She saw angels dancing on our house lol. Anyway..I'm getting off topic. I find nothing wrong with Assemblies of God churches. I believe they stay pretty close to what the bible says.

Free e-book:
Tongues Speaking
by David W. Cloud

ISBN 978-1-58318-153-9. This book contains a thorough examination of the issue of tongues speaking and tongues interpretation. Eight biblical reasons are given for rejecting the Pentecostal doctrine of tongues: Biblical tongues were real earthly languages; they were a sign to Israel; they were not a sign to believers; they were spoken to God; they were accompanied by interpretation; they were bound by apostolic law; they were never learned; and they were not spoken by all believers. The book also examines the doctrine of a "private prayer language."

I'm not Presbyterian, so you're wrong. Presbyterianism is wrong too, just like pentecostal/charismania, both are fakes, the one new age and the other Reformed Roman Catholic, I will let you guess which is which.

But stay in your blindness you have been given the chance to break free.

--------------------------------------------
We read in Hebrews 1:1-2, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us
by his Son." How does God speak to us? Through His Son, who is THE WORD OF GOD (John 1:1; Revelation 19:13). Jesus is the Living Word which came down amongst men
in the flesh (John 1:14; 1st Timothy 3:16). If you want to find God today, and hear from God, then you MUST look to the Scriptures. This is the key to truth,
for the Word of God is Truth (John 17:17). Jesus is the Truth (John 14:6). Jesus Christ and the Word of God are inseparable! BEWARE of modernists who teach about
spirituality, or claim to be Christian, who don't teach and promote the Word of God. God doesn't speak to any individuals today through private revelations,
as He did in the Old Testament. The Word of God is complete! Such false prophets as Ellen G. White of the Seventh-Day Adventists, and Joseph Smith of the Mormons,
were demonically inspired. They both make claims of having received "divine revelations" from God, but are both LIARS! Hebrews 1:1-2 plainly states that God speaks
to us today ONLY through THE WORD OF GOD.

So why do people claim to experience bizarre revelations and visions that no one else has? In a word, MONEY! The average person is woefully IGNORANT of God's Word,
and is therefore susceptible to the tricks of the Devil. These people are suckers for every religious charlatan who claims to have a special connection with God.
Don't you believe it! The Word of God plainly states in 2nd Peter 1:20, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."
Bill Wiese is making money from the sale of his books, etc. It's sad that people don't have any interest in the Word of God--until some nut claims that there's
secret computer code in the Bible, or that he saw 13 feet demons in a vision with claws and giant teeth. The reason why the claims of Bill Wiese (and others like him)
have been totally ignored is because they SHOULD be ignored. Let the Bible speak for Itself. We don't need any new revelations, and the Bible never tells us to look
for them. Hebrews 1:1-2 tells us that God speaks to us in these last days through HIS SON (i.e., the WORD OF GOD).
--------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------
The Apostolic Signs and Wonders

In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus said to the Apostles, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

Because of their inability and refusal to rightly divide the word of truth (II Tim. 2:15), the Charismatics operate under the false assumption that these signs are still in effect today and that it is THEIR duty to fulfill them. This is why we have charlatans like Oral Roberts and Jim Bakker living in mansions and begging people for money.

In their haste to make a dollar, the Charismatics consistently ignore the fact that Jesus said these were SIGNS, and that 1 Corinthians 1:22 tells us that SIGNS are for the JEWS. Israel began with signs (Rom. 4:11; Exo. 4:8 ,9, 17, 23, 28, 30; 7:3; 8:23; 10:1-2; 13:9; 31:13, 17; Deu. 4:34; 6:22), lived by signs (Deu. 11:18; Jos. 4:6; 1Sam. 10:7; 2Kgs. 19:29; Isa. 7:14; 38:7, 22; Eze. 4:3; 20:12, 20), and demanded signs from Christ (Mat. 12:38; 24:3). There is more scripture to support the doctrine of signs being for Israel than there is to support the Virgin Birth and the Inspiration of Scripture combined! Anyone who ignores this truth is absolutely unqualified to teach, preach, or write anything about the Apostolic Signs. If you'll take a look at Hebrews 2:3-4 you will see that the signs were used to CONFIRM the word of God, and you will also see that the signs are spoken of in the PAST TENSE. They are also spoken of in the past tense in 2Corinthians 12:12. Those who insist that we should practice the signs today because they were practiced throughout the New Testament haven't been reading (or believing) their Bible. They were not practiced throughout the New Testament. In fact, Paul left Trophimus SICK at Miletum (2Tim. 4:20); he gave Timothy medical advice instead of healing him (1Tim. 5:23), and he had infirmities of his own from which he could not be healed (2Cor. 11:30; 12:5-10). Now why all this sickness if the Apostolic Signs were still in effect? Answer: They WEREN'T still in effect, because they were only needed in the early ministry of the Apostles for the purpose of confirming the truth to Israel.

Now we firmly believe that God can still work miracles and heal anyone He chooses, and we believe that the prayers of God's people can move Him to work miracles, but let's not confuse answered prayers with Apostolic Signs, because there's a vast difference. We believe in healing; we just don't believe in healers.

You say, "Well what about speaking in unknown tongues through the Holy Ghost? Do you deny that people today speak in unknown tongues?" No, of course not. People have spoken in unknown tongues for thousands of years. Ever read Genesis 11? Was that an outpouring of the Holy Ghost? When the Church of Satan speaks in unknown tongues (which they do), is that a work of the Holy Ghost? When a psychologist can have you blubbering in unknown tongues within fifteen minutes, is that an outpouring of the Holy Ghost? You see, too many people have the idea that if something is highly abnormal or miraculous that it MUST be of God. The coming Antichrist will have a field day with such feeble minded people, because HE will work such "signs and lying wonders" that the entire world will follow after him (2Ths. 2:8-12; Rev. 13:13-14).

Nowhere in the New Testament did God command anyone to speak with unknown tongues. We do read about "new tongues" (Mar. 16:17), "other tongues" (Acts 2:4) and "divers kinds of tongues" (1Cor. 12:10), but these are all FOREIGN LANGUAGES, not senseless gibberish! There are no unknown tongues in Acts 2, and there is no baptism of the Holy Ghost in 1Corinthians 14. Instead of rightly dividing the word of truth, the careless Charismatics wrest the scriptures to their own destruction by ignoring the set divisions and doctrines that the Holy Spirit has inspired in the scriptures. The Apostolic Signs are not for today, because they were only for confirming the word of God to the unbelieving Jews in the first century. The Bible warns us to beware of anyone who professes to practice these signs today (2Cor. 11:13-15; Mat. 7:15; 24:11; 1Tim. 4:1-2), and the Lord commends the church at Ephesus for trying out some professing apostles and finding them to be LIARS (Rev. 2:2).

Friend, don't allow yourself to be led astray by these wolves in sheep clothing. If you've never received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, we urge you to do so right now. Turn from your sins and trust Christ alone to save you.

Isaiah 1:18 says, "Come now, let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." All men are sinners and need to be cleansed from sin (Rom. 3:23), and that cleansing can only come through the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:5; Col. 1:14).

Consider Ephesians 2:8-9: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Your only way to Heaven is through the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Repent of your sins (Luke 13:3) and trust Jesus Christ alone. Claim His promises and trust Him to save you while there's still time. Romans 10:13 says, "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:9 says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Why not turn to Him right now? Tomorrow could be too late.
