Pentecostalism: New Outpouring or Ancient Heresy? – The Pagan Worship of Baal and Dionysus and Modern Pentecostalism

Now suppose that ancient Baal worship and the modern Pentecostal (or Charismatic) movement happen to have a few particulars in common?   So what!   Moslems have ‘prayer’ in common with Christianity.   But does this mean that Christians should quit praying because a Non-Christian religion happens to do the same thing?

This question can only be answered in terms of what has come to be known as "the Regulative Principle of Worship."   Simply stated, the Regulative Principle of Worship maintains that God is to be worshipped only in the manner prescribed by Him.
