    Typical charismatic type.

    Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
    does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
    does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
    bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
    Love never fails

    you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men? For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not mere men

    She may not like change, may be pigheaded, may be divisive.

    The pastor may be forcing change, his change, not necessarily God's, upon many in the congregation. He may be pigheaded, and may be divisive. It isn't uncommon for a pastor to come to a place to "get things done" and takes little into account who the people are in the congregation, their relationships, their personalities, and how God may have knit them together.

    Paid pastors tend to come and go with the tides. Some members are their for life,whether for the good or bad.



    "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."

    Soooo, who will lay down their "rights" for their brothers or sisters for a time, let alone their life? Who will set the example? Who should set the example?

    She's NOT CHARISMATIC. She's protesting the pastor making the church Charismatic/Pentecostal.

    Please stop contaminating threads by bringing your biases against groups or specific people.

    3. No Flaming

    You will not "flame" other members or groups of members. Flaming includes, but is not limited to:
    - Ridiculing, insulting, or demeaning another member or group of members; (Groups of members include members of denominations other than the one you subscribe to.)
    - Ridiculing another member's beliefs;
    - Stating or implying that another member or group of members who have identified themselves as Christian are not Christian;
    - Asking loaded questions that directly cause flames in response;
    - Using sarcasm to attempt any of the above; and
    - Threats of any sort.

    Special Note: While we welcome debate on a variety of subjects, however condemnation of any Christian group or denomination will not be tolerated. Posts by anyone attempting to condemn others for their affiliation with a particular group (be it Charismatic, Word-Faith, Pentecostal, Baptist, Methodist, etc.) rather than to simply discuss in a loving Christian manner differences in beliefs will be examined and appropriate action will be taken. We will deal with heresy hunters swiftly here.

    I don't think compromise was what Jesus was talking about so it may not be as simple as that...this lady could very well be fighting against what God is doing...one thing is obvious...she does not want CHANGE and change has already come...

    It has been my experience that many charismatics cause trouble before they leave. They have caused me a lot of trouble in churches I have pastored. Then when all is in disarray, they leave with a others causing the church harm and injury. This lady is like that. She may be getting coached from someone else. She thinks that her age gives her special privileges. She needs to apologize for the trouble she has caused and leave as quietly as possible.

    You must be in a lot of pain lately. You don't usually get this mean and petty, but pain will cause us to do these things.
