Tongues: Dead Formalism or Sanctifying Sign of the Spirit?

  I just re-read the following poignant warning from the late Dr. Donald Bloesch: “Pentecostalism can become a new formalism, that words of prophecy and speaking in tongues can simply be outward acts that assure us of acceptance by our peers and be completely bereft of the sanctifying presence of the Spirit of God” (The […]

De Arteaga shows us that the supernatural aspects of missionary John Nevius’ ministry in China was suppressed and forgotten in the West.   When Protestant missionaries arrived in China early in the Nineteenth Century they had all been educated into cessationism. Part of this awful theology was the belief that exorcism […]
