Re: Chinese Charismatics

Man, I am not sure I'd want to even be there, let alone worship the Lord with them. I can't understand much of anything that's going on and I am not sure God is getting the Glory or not in all of that.

When I see stuff like that happening over here, I have the same reservations.

Re: Chinese Charismatics

Maybe if I had called this thread "Chinese Pentecostals" it would have got more views.

Re: Chinese Charismatics

I wish I could understand what they are saying.

Re: Chinese Charismatics

God relates to different people in different ways...maybe this is all they know?

I would like to know if it is real and where it happened...

is "holy laughter", "slain in the spirit" and the "sprawled and jerking" movements that happen in many Pentecostal/Charismatic churches even Biblical?

I have a hard time justifying anything that I can't readily find support for in the Bible. One of the reasons why I choke on "standards made into salvation" stuff. But I digress.

I miss the order and profound liberty I found while attending UPCI churches which makes stuff like what's in this clip difficult to accept as Christ-ordained.

Re: Chinese Charismatics

guess it makes me glad that we don't have to rely on many of 'us' to justify if something is God ordained or not. Only gotta please HIM and that is all I am worried about.

Re: Chinese Charismatics

Im surprised. I am blessed by this fervency in worship and prayer. It seems far more real than the things I saw in Oneness Churches as far as worship. Notice they dont seem to need a bunch of musical instruments pumping them up?

Re: Chinese Charismatics

1. I don't know that they are even Christian. (partly because of the language barrier)

2. I am not at all sure I would want to experience what they are.
