You may be bapticostal IF: Toward a Pentecostal definition of Theologia Bapticostalis

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

You may be bapticostal IF: Toward a Pentecostal definition of Theologia Bapticostalis:

  1. You don’t believe in the initial evidence of speaking in tongues and claim baptism with the holy Spirit without ever speaking in tongues
  2. You believe you can be filled with the Holy Ghost without ever been fully sanctified with a clean heart
  3. You believe in some “trinity,” but not in the Trinity defined by the Bible at the early church councils
  4. You like the charismata move of the Spirit but believe all gifts and miracles stopped with the apostles
  5. You believe you can social drink and still speak in tongues like there’s no tomorrow
  6. You believe God changes, learns new things and does not know the whole and entire past, present and future events
  7. You believe in any other rapture except pre-Trib
  8. You think gong to the altar is about repeating someone else’s prayer
  9. You reject any emotion in church
  10. You think the practice of holiness lifestyle was just for the Early Church and the apostles
  11. You think Dake’s Study Bible was good, but  MacArthur’s is much more scholastically superior
  12. You believe Arminianism equates to Pelegianism
  13. You view Wesleyan holiness and sanctification renewal theology as a bad deviation from reformed TULIP
  14. You enjoy discussing that next new theology book in social coffee or beer gathering, more than studying the Bible and learn what God actually said
  15. You go to Ash Wednesday service just to get ash on your forehead
  16. You enjoy Sunday morning small talk series from the pastor rather than full blown old time Pentecostal preaching through which people cry, scream, shout, have a Holy Ghost conviction and personal crises experience and can actually get saved
  17.  You think the initial evidence of speaking in tongues and the gift of speaking in tongues are one and the same
  18. You believe speaking of other tongues refers to the little Spanish you learned in college
  19. You think tongue talking is just for people from Mississippi
  20. You are firmly persuaded that all of the above is what a good Pentecostal church believes

    It might help you to study a little bit about what Baptists believe and teach before you make a list like this. It’s all over the place. A lot of those don’t have anything to do with Baptist beliefs or practices. Where do you live? Have you actually ever met a Baptist?

    A lot of the Baptists in the South have traditionally been tee-totalers. Do they have a less ‘church council’ view of the Trinity than Pentecostals? That’s way off.

    Ash Wednesday? For Baptists?

    How many non-pretrib Baptists have you met?

    For you, does ‘Baptist’ mean ‘someone who disagrees with me on some point of religion or theology’? I guess you could call that ‘Baptist’ if you want to. But you are going to have a difficult time communicating with other people if you just redefine terms to mean something different from the way other people use them.

    One problem is the Baptist approach to 1 Corinthians 13:10, “But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” This is of course speaking of that day when we shall see our Lord face to Face. Our faith will become sight, and we shall know even as we are known. However some Baptist, not all I’m sure, take this to mean the Bible. Signs and wonders and prophecy and praying in an unknown tongue is passed away, we have the Bible now. And be so brazen as to insert this directly into the verse. “..perfect, (the Bible) is come..”
    For me the Baptist, a people that​ honor the incorruptible word of God, that is problematic. I’m not finding fault with a whole denomination simply stating a problem I have personally experienced. This is a Pentecostal group. I probably wouldn’t say this on a Baptist group page. I would enjoy the fellowship. And the Blessed hope we share in Christ.

    Thankfully, I grew up in Baptist circles about as much as I did in Pentecostal so I can tell you about that. No, Baptists don’t do Ash Wednesday, most of them ARE, in fact, pre-trib. Most of them also hold to Once Saved, Always Saved (meaning they dismiss the biblical teaching on apostasy, even saying that apostasy is something like a serious backsliding but that a genuine believe CANNOT walk away from the faith. In this they are not biblical but Calvinist to the core. They believe not only in unconditional election but also in unconditional salvation (which, of course, is unbiblical). And (need I mention this?) Baptists are the vanguard of Cessationism. Although I would point out that some of the more better-read and up-to-date ones don’t use the argument Street Preacherz quotes above (and that was a favorite of John MacArthur for years before other Evangelicals, notably Greek scholars, told him it didn’t fly in the face of the Greek as “that which is perfect” does not “obviously” denote the completion of Scripture). Still, our early Pentecostal fathers liked to say that Baptists make the best Pentecostals because in all other respects their doctrine is sound and then they really come alive when they get baptized in the Holy Ghost. Meanwhile, we also have a lot of Pentecostals who have come into the life of the Spirit in all of its’ depth yet somehow have managed to maintain a great ignorance where doctrine and the substance of the Word of God is concerned. I hate nothing more than on the one hand a church that is doctrinally correct, has good preaching and seemingly well-rounded people but that does not believe for God to be supernatural and involved with them when they worship and on the other hand a church that welcomes the moving of the Spirit, believes in all that God has to offer His people…but then only revolves its’ preaching and theology around that forgetting the larger corpus of Christian doctrine and being ignorant on so many vital Christian things. Why oh why? Why the disparity? I grew up holding BOTH elements within myself. A Spirit-filled and driven church should NOT be doctrinally shallow (or compromise with the world). It should now have watered-down preaching or preaching on one theme only. And a church that teaches the full counsel of the Word of God in all other areas should teach what the Bible says about the Spirit’s activity as well.
    Unfortunately, when I’m in Baptist circles I’m too Pentecostal for them and when I’m in some Pentecostal circles I’m a bit too Baptist for them. Guess that makes me a “Bapti-costal”.

My own Pentecostalism was strengthened actually @ BJU when I heard testimonies from Baptist missionaries about spiritual phenomena and God’s power. I also did a lot of reading on the subject while there and studied Church History on my own (I was a Piano Performance major).

    If there was a New Bapticostal Edition [NuBE] of the Bible, Acts 2 would have read like this:

    2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind [causing no obvious change in the disciples who sat there in silence without any wonder of what that may be]

    came from heaven [where Jesus had just gone, so nor emotional surprise there either]

    and filled the whole house where they were sitting [but they were of no fear, trembling or any other emotion – yeah, right ]

    3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire [but still their stone faces showed no emotion]

    that separated and came to rest on each of them [causing absolutely no emotional distress to any of them]

    4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit [but no external change occurred as they clearly possessed power to control this mighty move of God]

    and began to speak in other tongues [but now shouting, crying, laughing, screaming, jumping, leaping]

    as the Spirit enabled them. [yet they left the place in the same emotional state they arrived – not a thing changed]

      I know most Pentecostal preachers have changed their minds about what they were gonna preach a few times before taking the stand to preach. I have even read my text and my opening remarks would be entirely down a different vane than planned and thereby following the leading of the Holy Ghost

    This is what I am talking about Gary Micheal Epping So we start with the rapture and allow it to be what ever

    #5) of our 5 – fold FULL Pentecostal gospel is gone right there

    4) you come to day and age where the GIFTS of the Spirit are said to be practiced in the OT – Sure we agree – except demon casting but how does it anymore so whats the big deal Scratch 4

    3) Baptism with speaking in tongues – Wiki says this (tomy surprise)

    An increasing minority of pastors has expressed concern that there is a lack of biblical support for the claim that Spirit baptism must always be accompanied with speaking in tongues Roozen 2005, p. 73.Roozen, David A.; James R.

ISBN 978-0-8028-2819-4.

    2) entire sanctification – you might just forget about this one For a holiness roots church we sure aint sure in what sanctification is anymore And who even preaches it?

    1) JUST in recent years BIG stink about the sinners prayer from some calvinist who has never even practiced personal witness because he believes if you are not chosen no point of witnessing, missions, evangelizing and our Pentecostal folk are lining up for tickets at his show tent #hello

    So HOW do you adhere X-ers Y and Z-gens when you have lost your theological standard of faith? when one has ABANDONed his/her ROOTS VS RETHINKING THEOLOGY http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/abandoning-your-roots-vs-rethinking-your-theology/

    An old post you have resurrected. Not sure how to categorize it. Satire maybe? But it is not good satire becuase it does not reflect Baptist beliefs, not that I am aware of. Plenty of Baptist’s preach against drinking, and plenty are tee-totalers. But it did seem like a lot of drunk people on the streets of Athens, Georgia at night when I went to UGA were from Baptist backgrounds, but I guess they weren’t practicing that night.

    And believe in a trinity but not the one from the church councils? Can we really say that is something non-Pentecostal, but rather more Baptists? Really? The Oneness call themselves Pentecostal, too. And there are plenty of Pentecostals whose understanding of the trinity seems to be ‘Jesus is God.’ I don’t know if Baptists tend to go into a lot of detail on the Trinity, but I wouldn’t be surprised if, on average, Baptist preachers address this as much or even more as Pentecostals. I don’t know of a Oneness or Arian Baptist group, but the last I read, about 5% of Pentecostals are Oneness, and there is some group, gospel chapel, I think, that don’t believe in the deity of Christ. It’s a very small percentage of Pentecostlas though.

    Baptists getting ashes on their head for Ash Wednesday? I’ve never heard of Baptists doing this, but I read about an Ashe Wednesday service at Lee University.

    If it’s satire, you need to work on it a little more to make it a bit more Baptist.

      We must be committed to sola scriptura, the faith once and for all time entrusted to the saints. Interpreting Scripture via creeds, confessions, statements of belief, etc. is eisegesis. Thus, it is not based on proper exegesis of the Scripture. I am not criticizing the past, but something better is needed if the church is to be effective in this increasingly secular age.

      These things hinder our witness: (1) the scientific challenge to the Bible; (2) divisions among Christians; and (3) sin among Christians, especially the leaders.

      We are now discussing (2). The one to solve that is the Holy Spirit that builds us into one body of Christ. This common understanding of the Scriptures is also essential for addressing items (1) and (3).

      The Jesus who has given us the Scriptures is the head of the body of Christ, his temple and witness in the earth. Pentecostals also know the living Jesus and he must be our focus and head. We must submit to him.

      There is also Liberty in Christ. Our unity must come from personal conviction. Thus, we strive to maintain the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace until we come to complete unity of faith.

      As I shared with my dear friend Norm Geisler, who is not a Pentecostal, if we focus on Jesus, we will also know the Father. It is from believing in him that we receive the Holy Spirit.

      But receiving the Holy Spirit as we Pentecostals know it, also requires unity with the body of Christ. That’s the importance of laying on of hands. When the Lord’s people are gathered in his name, he will be present to baptize with the Spirit whoever desires to receive this great gift, an actual relationship with Jesus.

      That’s Pentecostal as we began and before we divided.

      Michael Hazlewood it can not be affirmed then that the phrase “baptize in the name of Jesus” means “to pronounce the name of Jesus at baptism” and that this phrase can not mean another
      thing.

      Does the phrase “in the name of” mean something other than “pronounce His name”? Yes???

      Then you have to explain Luk 9:1 and 10:17 (“gave them power and authority”).

      Their is nothing wrong to pronounce the name of Jesus. The problem is
      when it is taught that the name of Jesus has to be pronounced at baptism and
      only the name of Jesus can be pronounced at baptism, because the Bible does not teach that at all for baptism. The only model of certain exact words that they are to be pronounced when they are baptized are said by Jesus in Matt 28.

    Note that no verse is mentioned that any apostle pronounced “I Baptize you in the name of Jesus” when they baptized. There is no text that says that they pronounced the name of Jesus when baptizing.

    In this simple act of obedience all the examples in Acts tell us what to do but they do not tell us what to say.

    In Acts 2:38, Peter answers a question and tells them what to do. He does not say anything about what to say when baptizing; none is baptized in verses 38-39. Not until verse 41, it says that three thousand people were baptized, but it does not say what
    the apostles said at baptism.

    They brought in Peter and John and made them stand in the middle while they questioned them. They asked, “By what authority/power and in whose name have you done this?”

    Acts 4:12
    And therThere Is No Other Name Under HeavenTHERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN among men by which we must be saved.”

    IN OTEHR WORDS:
    Only Jesus has the power to save! His authority is the only one in all the world that can save anyone, know that name is Jesus.

    Some I think you know are poison. They wear a mask, deceived and deceiving, they shuffle their feet, positioning themselves to entice with their craftiness and casting their doubts upon the good word of God. But I don’t think “bapticostals” are your real problem.
