What Is A Pentecostal
UPC has a twisted trinity doctrine. SDA's are not pentecostal.
There are bible believing churches/pentecostal/charismatic that believe in the Trinity/all of the spiritual gifts and order in the Church. Every believer can flow in the Holy Spirit, every believer should flow in the Holy Spirit.

What Is A Pentecostal
Jesus came to set the captives free, liberty to the captives.
Faith is major in operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. But the gifts are as the Holy Spirit wills, not as we will.
If you're an available vessel, God can use you.

What Is A Pentecostal
The pentecostal/charismatic I'm talking about is not afraid to step out of the boat.
They would rather be a drenched water walker than a dry boat sitter.
The eyes of the Lord run to and fro across the whole earth - He is looking for someone to whom He can show Himself strong.
Our hearts must be humbled at all times to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church.

My Life Is Hard As A Christian
The abundant life.
The culture of sponges. Talk shows grant us the power to over analyze ourselves. News shows help us dread things that will never happen. Prosperity gospel tells us to grab everything we can. We're becoming numb to violence and frozen in anger and bitterness.

Scientists say any element that changes everything around it without itself undergoing a change is a catalyst.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest catalyst in our history.

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

Born Of Water And Spirit
John 20:19-23 Jesus said, "Peace be with you" After He said this, He showed them His (crucified) hands and side. Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you." With that He breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven (released from apologizing and debt owed, but not free to abuse). If you (retain) do not forgive them, they are (retained) not forgiven."
