Pentecostalism, Rightly Understood

“Pentecostalism, rightly understood, is a critique of/radical alternative to evangelicalism, not a subset of it.  Pentecostals who act like fundamentalists while simply adding speaking in tongues don’t understand their own tradition.  Pentecostalism, at its core, is misfit religion; it is spirituality on the wrong side of the railroad tracks.  When people who can’t find any other place to belong elsewhere come together and share a combustible experience of the Spirit, Pentecost happens.”
