While I enjoyed DeArteaga’s “Quenching the Spirit” thoroughly, I must say I’m rather puzzled by the connexion (doncha love that Brit spelling?) between Anglicanism, which is a hold-over of Catholicism, and the genuine working of the Holy Spirit in divine healing. This has been a Pentecostal problem with Charismaticism for some time now. It’s the fact that churches which did NOT teach the necessity of the New Birth or who defined it as a process rather than a definite, one-time experience, then went on to appropriate another experiential, inward work of the Spirit (the Baptism) as if the New Birth did not define becoming a Christian. Francis McNutt has a similar approach and talks about divine healing in the Catholic tradition as if the teachings of the Catholic Church and its well-known persecution of born-again, Protestant (and Anabaptist) Christians doesn’t impinge on the kind of gospel that church preaches (a false gospel centered on the church and good works and not Jesus) and what it stands for. Anglicanism as well, (to my knowledge) never preached the New Birth (hence the need for the Methodist movement of the Weskeys and Edwards and Whitfield’s departure from traditional, stock Anglicanism per se). I’d like brother DeArteaga to address that issue (discrepancy) if he would.
