Re: Palm Bay Outpouring

I’m kind of a fact’s person myself. I used to believe all of the hype but I discovered that people sometimes make up numbers. A precious young lady (my daughter) who is close to me was praying down front. I was praying with her. It was a childrens crusade type of meeting.

She was praying fervently, but to my knowledge she never received the Holy Ghost. After service the evangelist added her name to the rolls of the newly filled children. I was pretty surprised. So I asked a friend who was also praying with her if he heard any evidence. He said that he hadn’t. There seemed to be a number of young people who were in similar circumstances there that night. I really didn’t want to tell my daughter the sad news but I couldn’t allow the confusion so I explained it to her. She later had a real Holy Ghost experience, thanks be to God.

I believe there is a lot of confusion sown by people that may portend to have good intentions. It is, in my opinion a way to hype God, which seems to be a way of saying “ He’s not majestic enough on his own, He needs me to help Him out”. Kind of a media blitz campaign.

Some call it speaking “evangelastcally”. It seems awfully close to lying to me. In fact, I really can’t see the difference.

Is questioning really expressing lack of faith? Or is it really confirming faith? Does “in the mouth of two or three witnesses” apply here?

And if someone truly experiences being filled with the Holy Ghost, does it matter really whether we recognize it? Or not? Are they any less filled?

If we say that they are filled (and they truly aren’t) does our say so, make it really so? Or not. It almost seems to me that we are trying to play God.
I think we should be careful.

Re: Palm Bay Outpouring

Ever been in a service where they’re having people prime the pump?

Speaking in tongues slowly so the person they are praying for will catch on?

Telling people to say “la la la” so eventually the Holy Ghost WILL take over?
