Gift Heavy

Since when is relying heavily upon the “gifts” or even emotions and a charismatic emphasis the same thing as building a foundation in people. When life gets hard and our hearts are open to offense it is usually not praying in tongues that gets us through hard times. I am not against that. I am against any kind of emphasis on what people want to call “being led by the Spirit” as replacing preaching the word and Jesus. I think most of us just say we need more Spirit in church and it could be because of a lack of joy in the word. We need both but more times than not we can overlook the simplicity of meditating on the bible.
