Assemblies of God has rejected the teaching of present-day
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

  • The Assemblies of God has rejected the teaching that present-day apostles and prophets should govern the church (see papers titled “Endtime Revival“, “Apostles and Prophets,” and “Prophets and Personal Prophecies“)
  • The Assemblies of God has rejected the teaching that the church should work to take dominion of the earth prior to Christ’s return–a teaching known as “Kingdom Now” or “Dominion Theology” (see papers titled “Endtime Revival” and “The Kingdom of God“)
  • The Assemblies of God has rejected the teaching that the end-time church will become a victorious, militant army so it can take dominion of the earth–a teaching known as “Manifest Sons of God” or “Joel’s Army” (see paper titled “Endtime Revival“)
  • The Assemblies of God has rejected the teaching that Christians must identify a hierarchy of demonic spirits (also called “territorial spirits”) and wage battle against them for the gospel to advance–a teaching known as “strategic-level spiritual warfare” (see paper titled “Spiritual Warfare“)
  • The Assemblies of God has rejected the teaching that spiritual gifts, such as prophesying and healing people, can be imparted by church leaders through the practice of laying their hands on people (see paper titled “Imparting of Spiritual Gifts“)

    All these papers seem to be written close to a decade or more ago. So is any of this new?

      Eric Jones NO sir If you are indeed ordained you MUST adhere to doctrinal teaching and policies like them or not So NO you may not be if you are ordained My experience with 4 gen. in my family ordained with AG is that our policies at times change to contradict previous policies But ministers still MUST adhere to them – this has never changed for 115yrs

      Troy Day I adhere to the doctrinal stance of the Assemblies of God. How hard is that to understand?

      Jesus kept the Law of Moses perfectly; but turned the world the right way up by showing us Abundant Free Grace. We are on Mt Zion not Mt Sinai now.

      RichardAnna Boyce Jesus gave us grace for free but has nothing to do with modern day free grace teachings

      Free Grace is on Mt Zion, but anything involving works, like repentance being a condition of being born again, is still on Mt Sinai.

      neither Mt Zion nor Mt Sinai ever envisioned dualistic gnosticism as proposed by the free grace teachings

      Repentance is not a work, but is a change in direction, position, posture and attitude. Grace is not free, but is dripping with the blood of Christ, freely given but calls me to lay down my life.

      Eric Jones John’s Gospel 100 times states believe only in Jesus to receive eternal life, as Jesus has taken away the sins of the world, and only the sin to send unbelievers to hell is unbelief. So it is true unbelievers need to change their mind about unbelief and agree with God about belief. But repentance and commitment to turn from sinful behaviour is a work. And the new believer will have no assurance that their repentance has been of sufficient quality to satisfy ‘their’ God’s requirements. THEN AS A BELIEVER, repentance and laying down one’s life is compulsory to earn rewards in the Millennium. But 1 John 1:9 repentance is agreeing with God that the believer has the righteousness of God in Christ.

      My belief will bring action. To cease from believing in my own works and goodness for salvation is repentance. To change my belief to that of believing in the shed blood of Christ, then, would be a “work” in your theological framework. It is a lot of work to just understand what you just wrote. A new believer will not understand you and may believe that their belief might just be works. Repentance is a change of direction (from believing in nothing to believing in Christ for salvation), a change of position (from focusing on my sinful life to the redeeming work of Christ), a change of posture (from that of standing in rebellion to God to submission and surrender to God). God’s grace does the rest. I have ceased from my labors and accepted His sacrifice. What you are suggesting is that while I am in my rebellious drunken stupor, God jumps on me and transforms me without my realization of it. That is foolish. Saul ceased from his struggles, surrendered to Christ and they changed his name to Paul. From that point, I lay my life down for him as a response to His grace. His grace enables me to lay my life down in submission and sacrifice.

    A position paper is good as long as we maintain the position.

    ER don’t, SS far as I know call ours apostles. lol Apostle Paul. We use Bishops. But we have prophecy. It means fourth telling. I think a woman preaching is a form of prophecy. And it hadn’t ceased. The Scriptures they use to day it has ceased. If they use the whole. Verse. It says at the bottom of the Scripture where there be knowledge it will cease. And knowledge is growing faster and deeper than ever. Which is Binlr. Because the Bible says it will be increased. Thank

    Just because you claim to be an apostle or a prophet does not mean you are entitled to governing the body of Christ. Many self-proclaimed “apostles and prophets” are wolves in sheep’s clothing. All of them aren’t but we are not commanded in scripture to follow apostolic succession and impartation. We pray, consider the individual and their commitment to Christ, and then place them in positions of leadership and authority based on the servant principle.
