I’m happy to admit when I’m wrong, especially when what I’m wrong about is something like the disturbing news I shared regarding the alleged schism in the Assemblies of God. General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, George Wood, sent me an email to set the record straight, with a well deserved admonishment to double check facts before reporting a story such as that. My apologies to my readers. While I did do some double checking with local contacts on this account, it was my error for not allow the A/G Headquarters to respond directly to what my sources were accusing. According the Superintendent Wood, “Nothing could be further from the truth. There has never been a resolution to change our views on these matters; and if there were, they would be resoundingly defeated.”
In all honesty, I’ve never been more happy to be wrong. As I said in my previous post, I’m no longer a member of the Assemblies of God, but I actually have a copy of the 16 fundamental truths in my house, and hold the positions taken by the Assemblies of God as a standard to judge my own beliefs by, after the Bible of course. While many churches are being swayed by the false doctrines of the seeker-sensitive movement, I’m very happy to see that it hasn’t affected the doctrines of at least one denomination.
