I’m unapologetically a charismatic Christian, and I believe all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to us today. It’s tragic that so many churches in this country limit or even deny the validity of the Holy Spirit’s power.

Yet in my years of ministry in the charismatic movement, I’ve learned that if the devil can’t convince a church to reject the Holy Spirit’s work, he will push people to the opposite extreme so that they misuse or abuse the gifts of the Spirit and drift into deception. Our critics call us “charismaniacs” when this happens—and too often we deserve the label.
