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

Pentecostalists make the interesting claim that they alone have a lively faith — because that faith is evidenced by "movement."   I was even informed recently that the reason the High Priest wore bells on his robe, was so that the people could hear him "dancing before the Lord."  In point of fact, a good bit of dancing actually did take place in the Old Testament — but it was around a golden calf (Exodus 32:1-6)!

When I was a youngster, I once watched my grandmother killing chickens.   She chopped their heads off, and the bodies flopped all over the barnyard — even to the point of frightening me.   Now there was plenty of "movement" in those chicken bodies.   But I can assure anyone that there was not a bit of life.
