Wesleyan Theology
  • Justification implies pardon, the forgiveness
    of sins. God justifies not the godly but the
    ungodly. They that are righteous need no
    repentance so they need no forgiveness. This
    pardon or forgiveness comes by faith.
  • Sanctification Ultimately for the true Wesleyan
    salvation is completed by our return to original
    righteousness. This is done by the work of the
    Holy Spirit.

Church Discipline
  • Served to remove offenses, vindicate the honor
    of Christ, promote general edification of all and
    last but not least, benefit the offender
    himself.
  • Presbyterian Book of Discipline.

16
Reformist Movement
  • Movement with established churches (Methodists,
    and to a lesser extent Baptist and Presbyterian)
    connection to historical churches.
  • National Holiness Association did not accept
    members who were not members of a church.
  • Prevailing vision had been to "Christianize"
    Christianity within whatever form or rubric it
    found a home.
  • Not until turn of the century were Holiness
    churches established.

17
Restorationist Impusle
  • Come-outers appeal to Biblical authority
    declared the existing sects to be the source of
    disunity and a hindrance to the restoration of
    true apostolic order, worship, and experience by
    their refusal to establish New Testament Churches
    "on the holiness line.
  • A Church of the Spirit

Key Religious Writings
  • 1845 Article by John Morgan The Gift of the
    Holy Spirit
  • 1856 Book by William Arthur "The Tongue Of
    Fire"
  • 1859 Guide by Phoebe Palmer, "Guide to
    Holiness"
  • 1870 Book by Asa Mahan "Baptism Of the Holy
    Ghost"

The BAPTISM of the HOLY GHOST, 1870
  • According to the other view, "the Spirit falls
    upon," "comes upon," believers, and "the sealing
    and earnest of the Spirit" are given, not in
    conversion, but "after we have believed." The
    Spirit, first of all, induces in the sinner
    "repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord
    Jesus Christ." After he has believed," that is,
    after conversion, "the Holy Ghost comes upon,"
    "falls upon," and is "poured out upon him," and
    thus "endues him with power from on high" for his
    life mission and work. In this baptism of power,
    this "sealing and earnest of the Spirit," which
    is always given, not in conversion, but "after we
    have believed," "the promise of the Spirit" is
    fulfilled.

Keswick Idea of Sanctification
  • Positional Righteousness at conversion the
    believer is imbued with the righteousness of
    Christ.
  • Experiential Sanctification the Holy Spirit
    works through the believer in daily life
  • Complete Sanctification comes at the end of life
    a.k.a. glorification

The Pentecost
30
Acts 21-4
  • "When the day of Pentecost had come, they (the
    Apostles) were all together in one place. And
    suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush
    of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house
    where they were sitting. And there appeared to
    them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting
    on each one of them. And they were all filled
    with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other
    tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Glossolalia
  • The term glossolalia is derived from the Greek
    glossa, "tongue" and lalia, "to talk."

34
Latter Rain Theology
  • Restorationism  --  This further development of
    restoration theology viewed God as progressively
    restoring truths to the church since the
    Reformation.
  • Fivefold Ministry  --  The teaching that God is
    restoring apostles and prophets to the church to
    function with the three other gifted offices
    evangelists, pastors, and teachers (Eph. 411).
    Apostles and prophets provided direction with new
    revelations that would play a major role in
    paving the way for Christ's second coming.
  • Laying on of the Hands  --  A ritual performed by
    modern apostles and prophets to impart the Holy
    Spirit and other spiritual blessings and gifts.
  • Prophecy  --  Views the practice of "personal
    prophecy" as being restored to the church.
    Prophecy would no longer be restricted to general
    words of exhortation, but would include personal
    detailed revelations for guidance and
    instruction.
  • Recovery of True Worship  --  The belief that
    God's manifested presence is dependent upon a
    certain order of worship involving singing in
    tongues, clapping, shouting, singing prophecies,
    and a new order of praise dancing.
  • Immortalization of the Saints  --  The belief
    that those believers moving in the truth of
    Latter-Rain restoration, not necessarily all in
    the church, will attain an immortal state before
    Jesus returns. 
  • Unity of the Faith  --  The doctrine that the
    church, usually perceived to be a band of
    overcomers in neo-Pentecostal ranks, will attain
    unity in the faith before Christ returns.

The Second Blessing
  • I Thessalonians 523 speaks of "entire
    sanctification.
  • first suggested in one of John Wesley's tracts in
    1766.
  • Being anointed for service.
  • Usually manifested as healing power, not tongues.

Pentecostalism
  • An Act of God
  • Shared encounter with the divine (imminent)
  • Emphasis not simply on glossolalia but on the
    empowerment the holy spirit brings to the
    believer.
  • Second blessing no longer a cleansing, but an
    anointing
  • Emphasis on experience allowed for participation
    of women and blacks in leadership roles

Scotch-Irish
  • 17th c Presbyterian Scotts, strict Calvinists,
    who settled in the Plantations of Ireland and
    eventually migrated to the Appalachian region of
    the United States in 1703 as a result of the Act
    of Union which demanded alliegence to the
    Anglican Church.

Cultural Qualities of Ulster Scots
  • Fiercely loyal to clan and kin.
  • Territorial.
  • Deep mistrust of government authority.
  • Military readiness.

62
Snake Handling
63
George Hensley1880-1955
  • Former Bootlegger who turned to Christ and joined
    the Church of God in Cleveland, Tennessee.
  • Began the practice of handling snakes in 1910.
  • The practice spread throughout the church by
    1914.
  • Left Church in 1920 when it refused to allow the
    handling of snakes and founded the modern
    Charismatic snake handing movement.
  • Died of a snake bite in 1955.

64
Sacred Texts
  • "And these signs will follow those who believe
    In My name they will cast out demons they will
    speak with new tongues they will take up
    serpents and if they drink anything deadly, it
    will by no means hurt them they will lay hands
    on the sick, and they will recover." Mark
    1617-20
  • Behold, I give unto you power to tread on
    serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of
    the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt
    you. Luke 1019
  • "So then after the Lord has spoken unto them
    Jesus' disciples, he was received up into
    heaven, and set on the right hand of God. And
    they went forth, and preached everywhere, the
    Lord working with them, and confirming the word
    with signs following Mark 1619-20

65
Leading a Godly Life
  • Jewelry is kept to a minimum. Some groups go so
    far as to consider wedding bands or watches as
    too extravagant.
  • Women, moreover, generally wear their hair long
    without any artificial curling, straightening or
    coloring and men must keep their hair short.
  • Men wear open necked, long-sleeved shirts and
    slacks although jeans and bib-overalls are
    generally accepted as well
  • Women must wear dresses of solid or flowered
    print.
  • Sign followers do not use tobacco or alcohol,
    and, depending on the church, caffeine.
  • The belief in the healing power of the Lord
    proscribes any professional medical treatment or
    even over-the-counter medications. A break with
    the belief in healing exhibits "a sure sign of
    lack of faith in God's ability to cure the sick."
    In some extreme cases churches have been known to
    ban eyeglasses However, much like the dress and
    grooming standards the issue of eyeglasses and
    even more serious medical attention is variable.

66
Church of Jesus Christ Signs Following
  • Believers are encouraged to
  • lay hands on the sick.
  • speak in tongues.
  • and provide testimony of miracles.
  • handle poisonous snakes (usually copperheads and
    rattlesnakes).
  • drink water laced with strychnine, arsenic, or
    some other poisonous substance.
  • Rags soaked in kerosene are ignited and placed in
    glass jars or empty pop bottles and passed around
    for any of the faithful who feel so inclined to
    touch them.

67
WHAT BEING BITTEN REVEALS ABOUT THE HANDLER
  • 1. That the person has sin in his/her life. If
    discovered to be the case, the faithful members
    shun the sinners.
  • 2. That the person handled the snake without
    being under "the anointing" of the Holy Ghost.
    Since God promises no protection to the
    unanointed, snakes are prone to bite them.
  • 3. That the person lacks the faith to handle
    the serpent. Handling snakes without faith is
    presumption.
  • 4. That God is testing the handlers to see if
    they will deny the faith when they are bitten.
  • 5. That God is a healer. One of the ways to
    know this is for him to heal the victim of a
    venomous snakebite.
