something about Lakeland

I say again: When it comes to the new movements of the Spirit, so what? I've got my hands full and so should you. You don't need any new stuff. All the old stuff is plenty good enough. It's been good enough for 2000 years of Christendom. It will be good enough for the next 2000 years.

My counsel to you is not to be distracted by new-fangled Christianity, but instead be diligent to know and practice the faith that's been once and for all delivered to the saints (Jude 3).

Ed,
If the birth and growth of the NFI church a new movement of the Holy Spirit?

Tom said...

Sorry, 'if = 'is'

I guess that's one of the why that newfrontiers needs to make sure it doesn't deviate from the once for all delivered gospel, whatever else it does. So long as 'new' is true to that then 'new' is probably fine...

I'm not sure it is, at least not in the comment of the quote. It may be a 'restoration', but it's not new in the sense that its 'pentecost plus'

Terry Virgo thinks it's a new work of the Holy Spirit doesn't he?

NFI I mean

i've never heard him say that, but that o/c doesn't mean he's never said it!

And i'm fairly sure he's not talking in the same context as this article is.
