Sunday at a Christian College

So I woke up about quarter after seven this morning... not by any alarm. Just the body clock still going on summer time (when I had to be up at six half the time). I dawdled in bed till about quarter to eight.

We headed to the chapel about nine-thirty to browse around the church fair. I found one church that looked like it might be a good fit. Lots of kids, says the youth pastor, so I might be able to help out with them at the midweek service. I'm looking at their website... weird. Does this mean what I think it means?

"In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. "

Huh.

Later today we're all going to a small-group-related thing about campus ministries. I think that will be interesting.

so was it interesting?

The small-group-related thing was a little long; the games were okay. Part of that was an overview of the different community service clubs you could join - and there were a TON. I'd rather have a list than just bam-bam-bam without remembering a thing from them.

what church is that, what is the URL for their website?

I stared at that quote and I don't really get what it means...

like are they the kind of church that believes to be a Christian you have to be able to speak in tongues?
RS said…
I'm thinking that's exactly what it means...

yeah, in pentecostal/charismatic circles, some believe that speaking in tongues is proof of the baptism of the holy spirit. i'm not a complete believer of that, but that's common in organized church structures that believe in tongues.
RS said…
it's sorta weird, I think; but that's because I think baptism by the Holy Spirit is not solely manifested in tongues...

i agree as well. i didn't receive "the gift" (as it is termed in Pentecostal circles) until I was 16 years old and I'd been a believer for nearly 10 years.

but at the same time, I believe it is a gift that can be very useful. i just don't make it a part of salvation--its only Jesus that is the path to salvation.
