Oh man, I can't wait until you go to heaven! You're going to get rocked beyond your wildest dreams haha! Matt 6:10 man!To the Anon who asked about if "holy spirit laughter" was right or not, I've personally experienced it myself and let me tell you, nothing but love for Jesus and others came out of it! I do agree with you Mr. Park! Love NEEDS to be the center of all things. However, God doesn't always need to do things in the order that we see. God just wants to have fun sometimes :) Be blessed!
Thanks for your message. I really appreciate your graciousness too. You’re referring to this post.
You know, when we get to Heaven I’m sure we’ll be dead wrong about a lot of stuff. If it turns out that speaking in tongues, having a word of knowledge, and interpreting dreams were all gifts that I was missing out on, then I’ll be completely humbled. It’s okay if I’m wrong about that.
But I don’t want to be wrong about Jesus. These secondary issues are not worth arguing over when we already have a difficult time with the primary core.
Please understand that I’m coming from the background of a former atheist, I’m still a very skeptical Christian, and the entire subculture of “spiritual gifts” is almost like an elective: seems cool, but I don’t need it to pass. When I already struggle severely with doubt, have overcome a porn addiction, and walked away from a mess of a past, I’m about to keep it as basic as it gets.
I can hang with the most erudite scholarly theologian and I can respect the charismatic guy with visions, but in the real world, I’m sticking to the simple love of Jesus. If God loosens my tongue and I start doing holy laughter, that’s cool. But I won’t be praying for that. I’m praying to finish strong in loving Him and loving others.
