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

Life is characterized by movement.   That much is true.   But it is also characterized by growth and reproduction.   The Christian life, also, should be characterized by growth.   It is an unfortunate fact that most Pentecostalists end up "stunted" — because they have become enamored with an experience of some kind.   Whether even that experience is Christian, I leave to the reader to decide after carefully studying this booklet.

Doctor Lee has shown decisively that the so-called "baptism of the Holy Spirit" [of Pentecostalism] is actually a frenzy that was common in the Greek mystery-religions — and the religions from which they, in turn, had sprung.   For those interested in pursuing the subject further, to see what has become of the doctrinal portions of those religions — I would recommend Alexander Hislop’s The Two Babylons.
