Now, think through the implications of that position: By arguing for a lesser form of Apostleship, they are actually conceding that the New Testament gift of apostle has ceased--they have, in effect, embraced a kind of Cessationism. In every country around the entire globe, the Gospel has been made available or been taught. It is Christ's experience that has merit rather than our own. When Jesus said: Peace be unto you, it meant their sins were forgiven, and at that moment they could receive the Holy Ghost.

In the old days, a lot of Pentecostals would not go to the movie house and dressed a certain way (no jeweltry, etc.) Charismatics came along with their women wearing makeup and some of them even drank wine back then.
