Number 5…

(This is a part of my “Top Ten things that drive me crazy about Quakers” list.)
5. Our “Just Say No” attitude toward anything charismatic

We believe God speaks to us all, but hush the prophetic voice. We want to yield completely to God’s Holy Spirit, but know the Spirit would never lead us to speak in tongues. I’ve never understood how a group of people completely committed to listening to God’s Spirit and obeying whatever we hear became a group that puts walls around what God will and won’t do. I would never say Quakers must worship like charismatics. Nor do I think we can say Quakers can’t worship like charismatics. Let God be God!
