What is being "Slain in the Spirit"?

Over the past few months, I've written about 90 articles and God has put the brakes on all but a very few of them.  Sometimes I get caught up in the moment and write about the "Issue Du jour".  I'm sure you can relate...

Today's issue I write with confidence that I'm supposed to be writing it!

As most of you are aware, one of the things that we discuss on the radio show and in my book, are Unbiblical Practices.  We discuss them, not because we want to "pick on" anyone, but to try and warn you and educate you, in order to save you the trouble of having to correct false teachings that can creep their way into your walk.

Over the last 3 years, I've been "interviewing" local churches in order to find one to become a part of.  Being primarily involved with Discipleship/Discernment Ministry work, I can't help but believe that I need a really good, solid, Biblically grounded and Doctrinally accurate church to send new believers to.  Suffice it to say, I CAN'T FIND ONE.

This week, after lots of research, I visited a new church.  I have several people telling me to call these churches out by name, but I don't feel lead to do so at this time.

If you've ever been to a church or have seen a video of people "falling over" as a Pastor prays over them, then you already know what the basis for this article is.  If not, take a look at this YouTube video HERE.  The narrator starts off kind of weak, but if you can get past the first 30 seconds or so, he does give an EXCELLENT teaching about the UNBIBLICAL nature of this phenomenon, complete with the twisted-scriptures used to justify this behavior.

So what is being "Slain in the Spirit"?  Just another make believe, made up thing, that someone put together in order to be able to distinguish themselves from another church.

It looks like one day I'm going to have to do a follow-up to Show 4 - Unbiblical Christianity.
