What has happened to tarrying for power in Pentecostal churches?
What happened for folks tarrying for salvation? now all you have to do is go forward say a sinner’s prayer… people used to beg God to save them, seems we need that today. However today is the word of faith movement and God is subservient to our petitions.

One dos not need to beg to be saved. Jesus died for the world, all we need to do is repent. Salvation is by grace , not by works. If you are trying to say that many are not really penetrate and just go through the motions, than I agree.

few believe that salvation is by grace and not works so no begging for salvation at all, true! but few also don’t understand being unworthy of salvation, depraved, unfit…that should be the struggle for folks. Salvation is easy, grace-but accepting that God loves us and freely saves us should be a great struggle. That struggle should remain with us till the end.

It was replaced by the simple laying on of hands to receive teh Baptism of the holy Spirit.

Because, it really wasn’t a biblical mandate to tarry, I don’t see anywhere Jesus, said to tarry or I.e…..beg for something that he freely gives!!!

If we truly believed that tarrying was a mandate we could also then say that we should all be going to Jerusalem to receive that power. Luke 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. (KJV). :/
