    paper on Spirit Baptism is very insightful and down to the point; in addition, Gordon L. Anderson’s article does an excellent job unpacking the missteps some Pentecostals have made in debating baptism in the Holy Spirit with those who disagree in the theological and scriptural teaching.

    that I realized I needed a savior to save me from my own pride. As I began to grow in my walk with Christ, the Holy Spirit began to show me little by little that, although I never did the “big” sins of others, I had the elements of those sins in my heart. It was only by His grace that they did not come together to produce such an evil harvest. He began to show me that I was just like the Pharisees that, when seeing the Messiah, they had longed to see, did not recognize Him because of their…
