15. Why do people speak directly to demons today and command them to leave, rather than just praying and asking God to drive the demon away? Isn’t it safer just to pray to God about this? In a way, this is similar to asking why Christians should share the gospel with another person rather than […]

Praying in the Spirit: Focus of the Charismatic Experience: Tongues, the Holy Spirit, or Christ?

The third chapter of the Praying in the Spirit Series. The strongest criticisms leveled at the charismatic renewal seem to center on two theories: one, the experience is tongues-centered, and two, the experience is Spirit-centered.
