Bible/Scripture/Doctrine Study Topic: Speaking in Tounges & Pentecostal/Charismatic Related - Not for this Dispensation of Grace!
From My Doctrinal Statement
Speaking In Tongues (Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement)
I believe that the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement constitutes a great threat to the purity of the Word and the purity of the church. Its claim to be the movement of the Holy Spirit is clearly refuted by its teachings and practices. The manner in which this unscriptural movement has gained an undeserved, unscriptural respectability to unwarranted and many apostate churches, which are part of the ecumenical movement, clearly reveals it to be an important catalyst in the formation of the one world, harlot church of the Beast/Anti-Christ.
I believe that the faith healers of today are unsound in doctrine and contrary to the teaching of the Word of God. I believe that the tongues movement otherwise known as the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement is carried on in an unscriptural manner. The fact that it is engaged in by people of varying doctrinal beliefs and by people who are not saved stamps it as either Emotionalism or of the Devil.
I believe that the outward manifestations of the gifts of tongues and healing were sign gifts given from the day of Pentecost on to authenticate their message of offering Yeshua the Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ, their King) and the Kingdom to Israel. Upon Israel's refusal to accept and believe, the Lord called the apostle Paul to preach the Gospel of God to all people. Also the completion of the New Testament proved that the sign gifts were no longer needed since the written Word was completed. Gradually the sign gifts disappeared as there is no need for them in the present dispensation of the Age of Grace where all believers are part of and in the body of Jesus Christ. (Acts 28:23-31; Ephesians 3:1-21; Ephesians 2:8-9, 11-12; 5:30-32; Colossians 1:13-14, 20-29; 2 Corinthians 12:6-10; Galatians 1:11-12; Colossians 2:8-15, 1 Corinthians 13:8-10)
