For a long time, I’ve been trying to piece together a blog post that sums up the typical teachings and beliefs of Charismaniac churches…not necessarily what might appear in their official “What We Believe” documents (which are almost ALWAYS pretty “kosher” and hold to your run-of-the-mill Bible-based doctrines), but rather, what they teach from the pulpit and emphasize week after week. I had this idea that it would be useful to discuss how teachings like the “Prosperity Gospel” and other “Word of Faith” teachings have infiltrated and then polluted the doctrines of the average Charismatic church.
But writing what would amount to a Charismaniac systematic theology has turned out to be more difficult than I thought, and anyway, I keep getting sidetracked. So when I stumbled across a very thorough summary on another website, I decided to post the link.
