Thanks for sharing all that.
Something I do remember from way back then (and perhaps it stuck to me) was before the Charismatic Church I was attending started to drift into Word Faith teaching, is it did teach the basic centrality of the Gospel in the Christian"s life. Yet, the Charismatic message that was taught often clouded the truth and actually contradicted it.
At the moment I will not give any examples, but I think much of what you wrote actually shows the differences between the truth and Charismania.
