Amnesiac Bear

The Pentecostals who made me very angry

A couple of Sundays ago, my wife and I went to visit The Revival Fellowship, Belconnen: The church of a lovely friend of ours who has since flown off to England to help with a church plant. I was rather looking forward to it at the time, as I hadn't visited a real live Pentecostal church in ages. The service was pleasant, the talk relevant and interesting (even if the preacher did tend to use passages a little out of context), and the people were generally friendly and welcoming. I was even impressed by their practice of only allowing one person to speak in tongues at a time, always with an interpreter, and only two or three in total per service (as per 1 Corinthians 14). So, what's my problem? Why am I angry?
