Personally I think it can be detrimental to rely too heavily on "feelings", these are subjective and really only relevant to the person having the feeling.I find that praying to the Holy Ghost, praising Gods great name and Jesus is a wonderful thing to do. I think if more people just attempted to pray to the Holy Ghost and felt Gods prescence there would be more believers.
We have churches FULL of people who raise their arms, sing it loud, speak with tongues.......then go to lunch, make a public display of praying over their food, and proceed to bad mouth everybody else in town who isn't currently sitting at the table with them.
Wasn't brought up in pentacostal or charasmatic. But, I did willingly attend services for a while when i was first saved. While the churches I went to were very friendly to me, despite how "evil" I looked, they never let me forget that I didn't belong there dressed like I was. Often making a point of how the Spirit was "directing" them to "someone" in the room or something like that.Please don't think I was being rude.
I was brought in in a particular denomination and after seeing so much gossip and hypocracy, I left.
