Do you believe in the “deeper life movement”? The belief that Paul left Romans 7 and lived in chapter 8. He moved from wretchedness to happiness! C. I. Scofield perpetuated this belief and is perhaps as responsible for the Pentecostal movement as anyone in the movement itself.

Been re-reading on Parham, McPherson, Etter, etc. this week. I guess Scofield could be included as well, but what about his belief on the baptism with the Holy Spirit? — QUOTE “But, while it is true that every regenerate believer is indwelt by the Spirit, and by the Spirit baptized into Christ, it is of the very deepest moment to note that the Acts and Epistles discriminate between possessing the Spirit, and being filled with the Spirit.” http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/cmt/sco/act002.htm

As a Pentecostal pastor I relied heavily on Scofield’s notes for Acts. “one baptism many fillings” I edited out the ultra dispensational views about the gifts being only for the primitive assemblies.
He made the proper distinction between the baptism of the Spirit and baptism in and with the Spirit. I thought Pentecostals dropped the ball by calling the Pentecostal experience “baptism of the Holy Ghost” -which was the new birth/regeneration. The baptism of Jesus, promise of the Father, was enduement for service.

By the way I don’t expect Scofields pre-trib doctrine, is there any Pentecostal ls or Pentecostal churches that don’t either? I know im a minority lol

Baptism of the Spirit is new birth/regeneration and the baptism Christ promised is what the Pentecostals proclaim. I believe that the oneness people say that the Holy Spirit baptism w/tongues is regeneration/new birth. being born again is evidenced by speaking in tongues.

I reject Scofield’s pre-trib millennial and his despensationalism

Are you a part of the Bride of Christ? If not, you will be lift behind to face the Wrath of God. Why not accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord now, become a part of the Bride of Christ and be ready for the Rapture of the Church. https://www.facebook.com/groups/thelogy/permalink/830048097050207/
