    In your bibliography you have cited my THEOLOGICAL ROOTS OF PENTECOSTALISM
    incorrectly.

    This seems to be pretty accurate. What is interesting to me, however, is that Historical Orthodoxy always taught that the Gift of the Holy Spirit was received after faith/repentance/water Baptism. If it wasn’t for the Protestant Reformation ignoring those distinctions, Pentecostalism may have developed much earlier.

    What distinctions would you say were ignored?

      The Protestant Reformation took away the idea that salvation and receiving the Gift of the Holy Spirit were two separate events. They combined them into regeneration.

      You seem to know some “other” reformation How would you combine this in your Pentecostal quest. Orthodoxy teaches that is is all received in the water baptism (even infant) including church membership 🙂

      Troy Day Actually, Chrismation is considered something that is done after water Baptism. You can look it up in hundreds of Orthodox catechisms. It isn’t hard to find – and church history.

      Troy Day No. I know Reformation theology. Luther and Calvin hold to the idea of automationism..the idea that the Indwelling occurs at the time of “justification by faith”

      Orthodoxy teaches that in chrismation a person is given the “power from on high” (Acts 1–2), the gift of the Spirit of God, in order to live the new life received in baptism.

      Orthodoxy stresses that Chrismation should take place immediately after one is baptized because of Acts 2:38.

    Randal W Deese you are playing with terms that do not really mean what you are saying May help to define what you mean when you use a term

    Most orthodox do make difference between the baptism as a personal participation in the death and Resurrection of Christ and chrismation as a personal participation in the coming of the Holy Spirit

    However, they are both administered to infants and freely if I may add, just to make sure they are issued baptismal license as members of the church

    Now then, you dont really think there is a single Pentecostal who would agree that a new born infant who was just baptized and anointed has also received the HSB do you?

      You are too funny. Don’t change the debate. We are taking about a doctrinal distinction – the distiction that supports the idea of a post baptismal Gift of the Holy Spirit. I stand in what I say. If you want to talk about how this relates to infants, we can.. But it is a different conversation.

      Troy Day One reason I am Orthodox-Pentecostal is to bring back the dead ritual to a living reality. The doctrinal truth is already there. The flame needs fanned.

      Btw, churches like Calvary Chapel do not believe that one will necessarily receive the evidence in their doctrine of BHS.

      Many Churches are close, but need taught like Apollos – more accurately.

      I’m not going to do all the work for you… Because I’m surprised you don’t know this information… But here is one example. This comes from a Lutheran Theologian from LCMS:

      “It is no less a miracle of God’s grace at work that an adult should believe by hearing the words of the Gospel, than that an infant should receive through Baptism the Spirit who creates the very faith by which one receives incorporation into Christ”

      The Spirit is given automatically. There is no separation by action not doctrine.

      Like I said you are throwing around terms without clue what they mean or where they came from So typically Orthodox. You will have more luck making Orthodox priests under Putin Pentecostal than making Pentecostal othdox 🙂 the automation of chrismation assembly line
