I know I made enough false or off center prophecies in my Charismatic days to qualify for a good old fashioned OT stoning…and not the herbaceous kind.
My experience with the Charismatic movement taught me so much about the love of God, and trained me to see God as real, immediate, personal. My embarrassing fumbles, such as deluding myself into believing my own "prophesies" (Lord forgive me), taught me the need for humility. Which, in a roundabout way, brought me to accept Holy Tradition.
I'm not even officially a catechumen yet, but I can no longer NOT believe what Orthodoxy teaches - which I've been in denial about for months. I felt like believing Orthodoxy somehow invalidated the (mostly charismatic) experiences that have formed the foundations of my faith 'til now. I am finally beginning to see Orthodoxy as an answer to my prayer to know God more.
I too have tried to discern what was legitimate and what wasn't, but I know it would make me insane trying to figure it all out. Besides, God used it all. Even the things I know were off - such as my "prophesies" - eventually led me to a greater understanding of God and His Church. I thank God for everything that has brought me to Him, even the Charismatic church.
