Praise-Worship Doctrine of Extreme Pentecostalism

praise-worship extreme pentecostalism praise and worship

Praise-Worship Instead of Praise and Worship. Pentecostal theologians say that if you truly praise God, then show it physically. Van Cleave added that a showy-praise practice is an aid to worship. (See Guy P. Duffield and Nathaniel M. Van Cleave. Foundations of Pentecostal Theology. L.I.F.E. Bible Colleg, San Dimas, California 91773. 1987.) In Pentecostal meetings you will find some dancing, clapping, crying, shouting, speaking in tongues, among other forms of worship-disorder. They call it as “praise and worship.” Further examinations of this teaching, however, show that it more fitting for the doctrine to be named as PRAISE-WORSHIP instead of “praise and worship.”

Flawed Belief System Before Learning Real Christianity

flawed belief system bythisverse

Of the judgment after death (mentioned in Hebrews 9:27) versus our typical flawed belief system. The second part of Hebrews 9:27 teaches that “after this [death] comes judgment.” We find three important points from this Scripture, namely: 1) That there will be a JUDGMENT; 2) That there will be a JUDGE, and; 3) That there will be LIFE AFTER DEATH to be JUDGED. Amazing, indeed! For only four words namely, “after this comes judgment,” we discover three very satisfying truths about who we are and what will become of us. True, there is life beyond the grave awaiting divine judgment and, of course, there will be a Judge.

What Will Happen After the Millennium?

There will be countless people on earth forever whom we, the saints of God in Christ, will administer together with our Lord Jesus after the Millennium. (cf. Rev. 22:5, Dan. 7:27) Our final state as Christians will be that of a ruler and judge who will have immortal bodies just like our Lord Jesus, heirs and children of God in Christ, our beloved Savior.

Demons are Influencing Our Culture

Have you noticed that as we advance in technology, we deteriorate in moral values so equally fast? While Eve covered herself, many in today’s generation wanted to show off their body? Nude societies are making headlines in Australia and other countries. And people love them for being such blatantly depraved! God said that the man, Legion, was undressed, and had 2,000 demons! (cf. Mark 5:15) Mary Magdalene had seven demons. (Mark 16:9) Indeed, the demons are influencing our culture, and worse, our majority support and enjoy them! The apostle Paul wrote over 2000 years ago that “although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” Corrupt politicians are voted in and the principled ones voted out. The people’s choice to release Barabbas, the robber, and crucify Jesus stays in the human heart until now to dignify what is crooked and wrong. How about calling a harlot as a “pornstar?” What talent does she possess to merit the adjective of a “star” or famous? Why not shameful, wicked, falling star—or other terms more convicting! The demons, the powers of darkness, must have twisted our moral sense and shaped out what is ugly and immoral into our culture.
