Re: What is going on here?

Many years ago, the Oregon District UPCI Camp Meeting was held at a Methodist campground at Turner, outside of Salem. In front of the pulpit was a wooden communion table. One year, a man jumped up on it and started dancing. Lee Stoneking was the speaker. When he saw the man doing this, he smiled and said, "better to have wildfire than no fire at all!"

So were the people running being led by the Spirit to do so?

Re: What is going on here?

I would be careful and not say anything against people worshipping as these people are doing. We don't know the battles they have faced all week and need to express themselves in this manner. Most branches of Pentecostals have been doing this for years. He had to be in the Spirit or he would fallen off the pulpit.

Re: What is going on here?

A prophet was once led by the Spirit to bake and eat a cow patty in the town square. So I'd be leery of claiming a guy dancing on a podium isn't being led by the same Spirit.

Also, why does an expression of joy or "rejoicing" have to be "led by the Spirit"? People aren't allowed to express how they feel on their own?

(insert football crowd analogy here)

I have NEVER seen anyone dance on a pulpit.

One can praise God, even dance, without doing so to draw attention to themselves.

Okay, I'll play. Sure, A spirit led him to do that. But it wasn't the Spirit of God.

God isn't telling anyone to bake and eat a cow patty. So, sure, the same spirit (lower-case) which led the alleged prophet to eat a cow patty could have led the dude to do the running man on the pulpit.

It's not always "led by the Spirit" but the Spirit is present and involved.

Not really. That's a large pulpit.

And no, I don't know what battles he faced or why he felt the need to jump on the pulpit to worship, when he could have done so on the floor. Why the need for people to see what he's doing?
