Charismatics

When I first took my wife (gf at the time) to my old church (Foursquare), they were speaking in tongues. Now, I don't agree with the Protestant view of speaking in tongues because I think it is useless gibbering and just plain annoying, but my wife was crying when she heard the "tongues". I thought she was emotionally happy but she was in fact scared to death! She thought it was some sort of demon worship haha. However, I can see where it would and does cause many problems.

What do you think?

But aren't members of a cult by definition "blinded" to some extent? It seems like the poll is a bit exclusive :P

According to clock time and calendar time the approval of threads may seem to be long delayed, but in sacred time it is always near at hand, always imminent.

Sorry, I'm new here. I couldn't figure out how to post a message without putting a "poll" on. I used to be good at posting messages but I guess I'm getting too old hehe.
