Except the Charismaniacs abuse this gift as well. We see this in false deliverance ministries and the creation of all sorts of high-sounding nonsense. Jennifer Leclaire lives right inside this false understanding of the discernment of spirits. She thinks she can command legions of angels as she wages war against "marine demons" and the sneaky squid sprit! The sadly ironic thing is that the false is the polar opposite of the intention of the truth. These false spiritual battles are firmly grounded in someone's imagination and not scripture where is the actual gift of discerning spirits never is supposed to leave the guardrails of the Word of God.

That bring us to the final two gifts -- tongues and the interpretation of tongues. As this devotional has already gone on too long and the topic of tongues is the most difficult among the gifts, we will save it for a part two in this series. I do hope I have clarified my position on the gifts and Cessationism, as I have received several questions. I understand that the world and unfortunately the church wants us to make forced binary choices, but the truth is often somewhere in the middle. I refuse the Cessationist position that does not line up with Scripture, but I equally refuse the abuses we see in the Charismatic Church today. I am beholden to no singular train of thought as authored by man. Only the bible.

Reverend Anthony Wade -- July 23, 2019
