Greg Boyd on Charismatic Gifts in his church

This is one of the best sermons I’ve ever heard on the issue of charismatic church. In the churches that I will be helping to plant, we will definitely embrace elements of this tradition along with the Anabaptist values. Let me know what you think!

    Spirit-filled and anointed word. Thanks for sharing this. I agree, the gifts of the Spirit are for today! All of them!

    Nothing to do with the topic, but I love the idea of people texting their questions at the end of a sermon.  I love when churches embrace cutting edge things for the sake of ministry.   

    • Kurt Willems

      Me too. In a setting like that it makes sense.

    Good stuff.  Love a balanced presentation on charismata.  

  • Lorna

    I would have enjoyed this in my American History lectures.

  • Bethany Scotch

    I’m at work and having a hard time hearing the whole thing. Do you know if there is a transcript of it somewhere? I know I can listen to the podcast, but I’d rather read it if I can.

    Thank you so much for posting this! I also want to combine the Charismatic and the Anabaptist traditions, and I become so sad when I see charismatics promoting war and wealth and when Christian activists refuse to heal the sick or prophecy. Pentecost included both miracles and economic equality.

    I find the unity of the spiritual gifts and activism for peace and justice so important that I’ve started a blog called Holy Spirit Activism. The first post I wrote was called All of Pentecost, I’m sure that many of you would like it:

    God bless you!

    I am really disappointed in Boyd that he has embraced this.

    • Shane Mason

      Boyd came out of atheism by way of Oneness Pentecostals. He later rejected their heretical teachings and wrote a book refuting it. Boyd his a brilliant theologian, and I am thrilled that as a Trinitarian Theologian that he has enough spirituality to embrace and recognize the Charismata.
