The Holy Spirit pt.2

Let’s look at some of the workings people claim are of the Holy Spirit. I want to be a bit critical in the examination because I really want to know what is the authentic movement of the Holy Spirit and how we can know it to be true.

Benny Hinn and others do what they call ‘slaying in the Spirit’:

This practice is not found in scripture anywhere. I would also ask who this is exalting? We are to use our gifts to edify the body of Christ and witness to those who do not believe. They are NOT for monetary gain.

Some who speak in tongues:

1 Corinthians 14 – talks of speaking in tongues. Paul urges us to speak words that people can understand. Speaking in tongues is for non-believers to come to faith and also need interpretation to be valid. This seems to suggest that ‘tongues’ are just other human languages. Paul urges us to seek the gift of prophesy rather than tongues.

Your thoughts?
