The second and concluding part of a personal reflection on the ongoing legacy of the charismatic movement, as it affects the Reformed Churches in the U.K.
Perhaps the most evident legacy today has been the willingness of reformed people to borrow from or imitate certain aspects of the charismatic movement. Whatever the discernible flaws that could be seen, however regrettable the teachings, the excesses and the odd personalities, these people have felt there was still something to learn. This has been especially so in the area of music. The tongues-speaking, the prophecies, the healing ministries by and large have not migrated from the charismatic movement into reformed churches. But the worship ethos of the charismatic movement most certainly has. With the music have come, can be argued, other legacies which have had an impact on preaching, views on separation from the world and co-operation among evangelicals of all kinds and species.
Great Sermon! An excellent message, so why did you quit without developing the proper response to such developments in our times? It is as if your counsel would be most useful, if you would but express it AND develop it, rather than just leaving it as a conclusion to sum it all up. Please continue your series as to what God is calling us to as reformed believers in today's world, for we have many who are friends and also who are faithful to the charismatic movement. It hurts the life of the Christian faith, teaching, and life expression in our lost and deceived world. By all means, please continue training us in how then we should react, live and deal with this.
