Teresa of Avila, have continually warned the faithful of spiritual seduction, spiritual deceit, and mutual self-deception in the matter of extraordinary gifts.

David Lee on September 1, 2011 (Quick intro: I'm from an Anglican background, with early conservative evangelical roots (almost Calvinistic in some respects), later broadening both towards the charismatic side of things (although never having spoken in tongues) and the "high" Anglo-Catholic respect for corporate liturgy.

PS: Don't be afraid of Catholics using different techniques of prayer. As long as it is Jesus they believe in as Savior and God, they are doing nothing wrong.

You may have come to this conference with the settle conviction that the Charismatic movement represents a mighty work of God in the Church in the 20th century.

Writing in the fourth century, he described tongues as an obscure practice, admitting that he was not even certain about the characteristics of the gift. "The obscurity is produced by our ignorance of the facts referred to and by their cessation, being such as then used to occur but now no longer take place," (Chrysostom, "Homilies in First Corinthians," Philip Schaff, ea., The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church, Vol. 12 (Grand Rapids Eerdmans, 1956), 168.) John Chrysostom (d. 407) of Antioch and then bishop of Constantinople, knew of glossolalia only as a scriptural happening that had in the meantime ceased, although in his Homily XXIX, dealing with I Corinthians 12:1-11, Chrysostom had no doubt that at their adult believers' baptism Christians of an earlier age "began to speak, one in the tongue of the Persians, another in that of the Romans, another in that of the Indians, or in some other language Unbeatable Prosperity. Trinitarian Pentecostals are divided over whether to recognize them as genuine Pentecostals (I will touch on this group in a subsequent post). Also there are hundreds and thousands of smaller Pentecostal denominations and independent congregations that have no denominational affiliation The Purpose and Power of God's Glory.

This “oneness” was impossible apart from the protective atmosphere of “doctrine” (Eph. 4:14) and “truth” (Eph. 4:15) The Vine and the Branches: A History of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. This paper represents the first stages of an attempt to re-vision a charismatic Evangelical theology, hence, on an indispensable principle of religious authority, i.e., sola scriptura.[3] Because we take this religious authority seriously, and therefore seek to screen out our own biases and traditions, we rely on some principles of content analysisM, a method extensively employed and proven in social sciences and literature for objectifying the content and emphases of communication Charismatic Experiences in History. I find this analysis confirmed in the struggles of Fuller with the Los Angeles Presbytery. Marsden portrays it as so under the thumb of "liberals" (James Pike, etc.) that it would not admit the "orthodox" Presbyterians of Fuller. Yet he quotes documents of the study commission sent to Fuller that they were looking for signs of dispensationalism and Arminianism-as well as divisiveness Roar in Sodom: The Churches Needed Voice. Most proponents of this theory hold to a hyper-literalist interpretation of the symbolic language of the Apocalypse Love: The Way to Victory (Faith Library (Audio)).
