As a newbie, it seems that most on here equates "Charismatic" with Hinn, WOF, Arminianism and general lunacy. I can't comment on the Californian scene but although we do have lots of people of that persuasion, there are also some good reformed streams who also hold to the need for the Baptism of the Spirit to empower the people of God to fulfil the great commission- a view held by respected men like M Lloyd-Jones and John Piper

Rom 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

First of all, welcome to the Highway, Nick. Thanks for participating!

I guess we haven't really defined what we mean by the term "Charismatic" right here on the discussion board, because it is clearly and specifically defined and described on this web site already (click here). And while there are Reformed teachers who subscribe to (or permit) some particular doctrine or practice common to Charismatics, there are no "Reformed Charismatics" in the most honest use of either word.

I've even visited a Charismatic Presbyterian church (EPC) which claims the Westminster Confession as its doctrinal standard.

I (and others here, I'm sure) would argue that the Confession, not to mention Scripture, is in direct conflict with the practices of that denomination.

Again, welcome!
