Know that thgerer was some very starnge stuff going on that time, including people barking, strange noises, frozen as staues etc! Think Parham denied the trinity also...Thank you Bob for your words.
I am pretty sure that we all have seen such things take place....I know I have.
The Azusa Street Revival had its roots in Kansas. A preacher named Charles Parham was one of the early proponents of the Pentecostal movement in the United States and the first to suggest that speaking in tongues was the inevitable evidence of being baptized in the Holy Spirit. Parham started a Bible school in Topeka, Kansas. One of his students was an African-American preacher named William Joseph Seymour who was the leader of the event.
The rest of the story is very sketchy and hard to find but it seems as though Seymours teacher and mentor, Charles Parham, the father of the Pentacostel movement was arrested and in reports, is that Parham was having homosexual sex with the younger man. In their words, he was a "sodomite."
