      72% believe they can be saved without being baptized in the Holy Spirit ??
      How sad.

      Rom.8:9-11
      But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

      10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

      11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    Tim Dalton Daniel J Hesse after clearing the fact that PAOC do not uphold the Initial Evidence of speaking in tongues any longer

    THEY don’t believe in tongues as necessarily the initial evidence in Canada. They have dropped premil from their statement of faith and some Penteostals in Canada are even a-mil

    I am asking
    when a Pentecostal group drop 2-3 out of 5 pillars of Pentecosts FULL Gospel are they STILL even Pentecostal?

    Terry Wiles is it true that simply filled with the Spirit in PAOC of Canada simply means a baptist view with no speaking in tongues like Link Hudson is proposing? Daniel J Hesse Angel Ruiz

      In which an individual may or may not speak in tongues, like what may have been the situation in Acts 19 where some prophesied.

      Acts 2, 8, 10 is more than enough evidence

      Troy Day LIke chapter 10 where individuals in the group either spoke in tongues or magnified God, or Acts 8 which does not mention speaking in tongues at all. But if we can just eisegete that into the passage, we are cool, right?

      Acts 2, 8, 10 is more than sufficient proof

      That you don’t have much of a case.

      Not sure what you are talking about but I dont have a case anyway. Jesus, Luke. Paul, the early church and the early Pentecostals had much of a case interpreting speaking in tongues in their experience and in the Bible this way – I hope you dont see yourself smarter than all of them

      Troy Day There is no evidence at all that anyone in the BIble ever thought that if someone did not speak in tongues, he was not filled or baptized with the Holy Ghost. That was sloppy hermeneutics on the part of some early Pentecostals, and it has caused quite a bit of unnecessary division.

      Paul even asked, “Not all speak in tongues, do they?” If the Holy Ghost had meant to convey to us that no one who had spoken in tongues was filled with or baptized with the Holy Ghost, would he have had Paul ask such a question, especially without making this doctrine clear in other scripture?

    Is premil a game breaker? Nowadays?How many modernist Pentecostals hold to it?

    The majority Pentecostals in the USA and around the globe are still pre-mil and will always be despite NAR Angel Ruiz

      Troy Day can we get some interaction here? I believe this is a critical conversation worthy of thought.

      Troy Day it might be neat to run some of our present day teachings and use this to discern.

    To clarify, the PAOC has not changed its statement of faith. We are in a process of refreshing it, but no vote will happen until May 2020. Also, the PAOC has certainly not gone Post-mil (the majority still even affirm a pre-trib rapture). Not sure where that idea came from. And it hasn’t rejected initial evidence either. 84% still affirm “Speaking in tongues is the initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit.” Here are stats from a survey my colleague and I conducted of PAOC clergy: https://www.andrewkgabriel.com/2018/01/22/changes-pentecostal-clergy/

      Andrew Gabriel this is great. Except many like me are looking for more than initial evidence. I hope I can at least have evidence which surpasses the initial.

    IF the vision of Early 20th century Pentecostals was to restore the 5 corner stones of original Apostolic theology, why we dropping them now one by one? Melvin Harter Terry Wiles
