My question is, ” how important is it to teach the “gentile church” Jewish roots? Further, I am a jewish believer in Jesus, a Christian before I knew of my Jewish heritage, as I discover such rich information with in my heritage I find such a blessing in worshiping on the Sabbath and keeping the feasts, as a Christian I didn’t have any knowledge of these things and feel the church has missed out on this wonderful knowledge. How important is it to teach the church the roots and as an engrafted branch (adopted) how does this knowledge pertain to the Christian?
Given your stand and take on the charismatic gifts for today. Would you consider this gathering as work of the Holy Spirit? Would you hesitate to worship among these Catholics (tounge speaking, and rosary-worshipping and Mary devoted so called Christians)?
I’m pretty convinced that John McArthur would have a crystal clear answer to this question, wouldn’t he?
Dr Brown you can watch live from this link as the Pope speaks to the great crowd of charismatics later today:
If one believes that speaking in tongues is proof that the Holy Spirit is filling a church, then one would have to believe that at least some Catholic churches are blessed by the Holy Spirit.
I’ve seen Catholics speak in tongues and it was indistinguishable from most other tongues I’ve seen.
But, I believe I’ve heard Dr. Brown acknowledge that there are false tongues.
I think his standard for real tongues are the other fruits of the spirit. But, by this standard, surely some Catholics are speaking in genuine tongues.
I, myself, take a different view of tongues. I don’t think they prove anything to anyone beyond the believer who is doing them.
I should add — if modern Pentecostals spoke in _human_ tongues, like they did in Acts 2, this would surely prove something.
That would be pretty hard to explain nationalistically, of the Christian was perfectly speaking a language they had not learned.
I believe Dr. Brown says he has heard credible accounts of this kind of human tongues being spoken but I’ve never seen it myself and, frankly, I’m skeptical of such accounts.
But, I believe in miracles — so who knows? With all the cell phones around, surely we sill see video of it, someday.
Dr Brown has been consistent in his teachings that there is no scriptural evidence that the gifts have ceased. I agree. My goal then is not to measure the legitimacy of tongues on experiences, no matter how popular. There are real tongues and there are false tongues. This is why we are told to be discerning,
