Greg Robinson RENEWAL: A Wesleyan perspective on the Spirit

Roger Wilkinson [06/12/2015 10:17 PM]
I went to a Methodist college for a weekend event they was holding. I was completely shocked at there teachings and how far they have drifted from Wesleys teaching. They teach the students something called Liberal Theology which is like taking a pair of sissors to the bible and cutting out everything that may offend or challenge us into Holy living.
I fear for the Methodist movement, so sad to see, if my church taught what I witnessed there bible college teaching I would leave and take as many as possible with me, sounds harsh but we talking about peoples eternal destiny.

    In connection with the other discussions on degrees of anointing and mandatory degreeing of ministers, do you feel that thew whole renewal push in recent years took away from the authentic Pentecostal doctrine which has been prominent in our tradition?

    The push towards academics has helped advance the pentecostal movement, Pentecostals have often been viewed as lacking knowledge sufficient to defend our faith. Pentecostals have also often been accused of putting more emphasis on the spiritual experience than doctrine. In my view, the push towards academics has helped the overall movement, at the cost/price of a certain amount of spirituality.

    Evangelism and missions advanced the Pentecostal movement especially among the unlearned. It is not yet certain what has academia advanced within our tradition
