Thanks for the explanation, to summarize my understanding of what you explained:
Dōrea (δωρεά) = evidence = the incidences in the Acts of Apostles where it records.
· speaking in tongues
· praying in tongues
Charisma (χάρισμα) = manifestation = for the edification of the church.
· different kinds of tongues
· referring to preaching in tongues
Another question, if you don't mind, it looks obvious but to double check my understanding : )
So in Christian Charismatic services I have seen before: they are actually doing “charisma” and not “dorea”?
I don't mind at all =)
Generally, charismatic services is talking about ecstatic religious experiences. Praying in tongues is dorea, not charisma as we can see throughout the various incidences in the book of Acts.
The reason they call it Charismatic is because they believe that speaking in tongues as only one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. But throughout the book of Acts, when they mentioned the gift of the Holy Spirit evidenced by speaking in tongues they used 'dorea.' Speaking in tongues is not only one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, it is the only evidence for receiving the Holy Spirit.
