In this edition of Radical Grace Radio, we talk about how the Spiritual Gifts are misapplied in such a way that Christians wind up broken and sorrowful.
There was a woman at my old church, which was a Pentacostal Church, who was scheduled to recieve her "annointing" one night after many weeks of being taught about fruits of the spirit. All the people who attended classes came up front to be prayed over and begin speaking in tongues... but when it came to be her turn, she didn't start speaking in tongues. She was inconsolable. She thought that since she didn't speak in tongues that God had rejected her! After all, if she learns what she needs to do, and does them faithfully, but she doesn't get the annointing to speak in tongues, what could that possibly mean?
That's why we do this program. We have no choice but to offer a corrective for stuff like this. People's souls are riding on it.
