Essentially what we are getting with Experiencing God is a mysticism-lite where we “feel” we’re having direct experience with God. But how do we know that it’s really God and not just reaction from e.g. some bad potato salad we may have eaten? This is the exact same kind of concern Dr. Gary Gilley expresses concerning the supposedly safe “spiritual formation” teaching of Donald Whitney, which you can read in Book Review: “Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life” by Donald S. Whitney. Gilley also reviews EG in Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby.

“I wonder when we are ever going to change…We don’t need another hero.” Britten and Lyle
This is a post that was almost never written. It’s one that has been in my mind for a long time, but I’ve not yet put word to processor to write it. The time has never seemed right to do so. If the time has ever been right, it’s right now. Christians in the state of Georgia and beyond need a reminder that they shouldn’t put too much stock in any one man’s personality or accomplishments (unless, of course, than man is Jesus Christ). One such man is Johnny Hunt, pastor of the First Baptist Woodstock megachurch and a hero of the conservative resurgence of the Southern Baptist Convention.

In this concluding article I will show that tongues have ceased. The evidence is found in the revelation of God, not the experience of man. And Scripture trumps experience.
1 Corinthians 13
First Corinthians 13:8-10 reads: “Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.” This passage, properly understood, points to the providential completion of the New Testament canon as that which renders tongues (and other revelatory gifts) inoperative. Tongues, prophecy, and knowledge are specifically designated as having a joint terminus: each will be rendered inoperative at some future date (1 Cor. 13:8). What affects one gift, will affect all…
