As I observed the demise of the Holiness Church Movement, I witnessed many things which I believe have contributed to its death. I have also watched vigilantly as to where these denominations are going.
If they have distanced themselves from their past, where are they going? I have watched as the wavering within these denominations as their future direction is being decided. I believe that I am seeing the solidification of where they are going to hang their doctrinal hats based upon a recent united front of criticism of the areas that I hold in common with the Holiness Movement doctrines.
Before I discuss what I believe is going to be the inadequate, dishonest, and ineffective modern doctrine that is showing evidence of replacing Holiness theology, allow me to explain what I see as the contributing factors of why and where we are in this position today.
What I am about to write will no doubt make me unpopular with many who have been supporters of this ministry. I do not do so to divide, but to honestly evaluate what I see as the root causes of the The umbrella movement problems that have brought down the Holiness Movement, and potentially Arminianism today.
First, allow me to state that I have some fundamental differences with the Holiness Movement itself. While I am greatly indebted to Holiness Theology for much of my thinking, I am fundamentally more in line with primitive Methodist thinking concerning the timing to the reception of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
I do not accept or adhere to the Holiness view of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as being the defining mark of the event of sanctification.
This however, does not exclude me from believing that sanctification is related to a definite work of the Spirit, or that it is a second work of grace. I side with John Wesley and the early Methodists that the New Birth is the event of that spiritual baptism.
Secondly, the doctrine in which I differ with the Holiness Movement is the very cause of its own weakening as far as I can see.
I do not see the doctrine of sanctification being equated with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to be a Biblical position.
One error inevitably bre eds more error; that is the nature of connecting one doctrine with another. So, in essence, he and his followers ceased to seek more of God and Entire Sanctification, and proceeded to seek this sign of tongues.
I say this not to offend, but there are Biblical, doctrinal, historical, and experiential reasons why I am not a Pentecostal. The seeking of gifts and the association of their reception of them as being the evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit displaced sanctification as its sign. People embraced it as spiritual, and instead of just affiliating with a denomination that taught their doctrine, many sought to convert others from within non-Pentecostal Churches.
This upset and brought down many Churches. What was intended to bless these Churches ended up dividing and destroying many of them! I know of some whom even today, infiltrate their Churches, and through the same subtlety as the devil himself, subvert the very teachings of the local Body they are in, in order to give their doctrine a foothold.
Now before my statement sinks in and offends my Arminian brothers and sisters who are sympathetic to Pentecostalism, let me say that as I accept you as true Christians and not enemies. Please treat my difference of opinion with equal understanding.
You see, under the big tent of Arminianism, I am usually expected to be quiet and tolerant of Pentecostalism.
The fact is, if I agreed with it I would be a Pentecostal; but I am not. While you may be convinced that I am wrong, you are welcome to your view, but I am equally convinced that tongues and the seeking of gifts gets in the way of true spirituality, and does not enhance it.
I note our differences, not to attack Pentecostals, but to show what I see as a contributing factor in the disintegration of the Holiness Movement from within.
Doctrinally speaking, they brought it on themselves with the introduction of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an event that was subsequent to the New Birth. One erroneous doctrine has led to yet another. I see the Doctrine of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as subsequent to salvation to have contributed to their self-destruction.
Death was slow in coming when the doctrine of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit was moved from sanctification to emotional evidence of speaking in tongues. It has been a creeping pace of death since it had infected the Movement, and rigermortice has finally set in!
The Holiness Movement is not alone as the Pentecostal infiltration into all denominations would eventually affect the minds and hearts of the people through its popularity, but it is especially destructive to the Holiness Church doctrine because it displaces its central motive. As most Pentecostals believe that "doctrine" would stifle their spiritual life, the Holiness believer would usually see the inclusion of these "gifts" as interfering and distracting from what really matters in spirituality.
I believe that both are correct in pointing out that a mixture of the two would lead to the weakening or tearing down of the other.
This "softened up" the doctrinal standards of many Holiness Churches with the excuse of "reaching out" to be relevant in modern society. They needed members and money to keep the doors open, and pensions flowing!
