Most of those who read this blog are likely not best described as pentecostal. Probably dont come anywhere near that term.
Recently, due to certain circumstances, I have revisited this topic and am once again rethinking my beliefs. Am I a cessationist? Or a continuationist? Ie… Are the supernatural gifts of the spirit active today? And then if so, how should we see them? How should we use them?
Well, my convictions on this are to remain for the present shrouded in mystery. Suffice it to say that though I do hold convictions, I dont hold them strongly, and am very willing to dialog respectfully with a disagreeing party, of whatever stripe he or she may be.
So, thoughts? Do the gifts continue? Have they ceased? If they have ceased then what do we think of the pentecostal churches? If they continue how should we incorporate them into our churches?
