    Is this limited strictly to those in recognized Pentecostal denominations, or would you include people like Craig Keener (who started in the AG but is now ordained in a Baptist denomination and teaches at a Methodist seminary, and who contributes much from a Pente/Charis perspective in his scholarship)?

      Troy Day Craig Keener is not Methodist. He just teaches at Asbury

        And to complicate things Asbury is not officially Methodist but an independent seminary in the holiness tradition.

      Troy Day Depends on what you mean by Methodist. Oral Roberts was credentialed as a United Methodist minster, and a member at the Boston Ave. UMC in Tulsa.

      Troy Day but that’s looking down on Jesus. How can that possibly be worship of him?

      Maybe he thinks that Jesus was just another 1st century miracle worker. And I don’t see him as having much focus on Jesus, his Creator, Savior, and king.
