    Abstract from the original paper: “This paper seeks to understand Post Modern thought and expressions. An attempt will be made to determine whether Post Modernism has influenced Pentecostal Spirituality like it has done to fashion, literature, art, architecture, television and culture. It then seeks to examine the extent of this influence in order to see how we as Pentecostal theologians would look at this influence—as a threat or an opportunity.”
    Reader Comment: “Although I strongly disagree with many of the assumptions and propositions made by this paper, I think it represents what many Pentecostal pastors think about postmodernism and why they are afraid of it. — TS”
