We want to ground us in correct understanding of the gifts of prophecy, tongues and interpretation. The spiritual gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12 are difficult to understand. Part of the problem is that Paul never bothered to define many of them. Because of that, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about the gifts. However, the gifts of prophecy and tongues are different. Paul gives a clear description of how tongues and prophecy function.
We will focus on our desire and need to not just know God, but experience God. We will talk about all the ways that Christian insiders and outsiders seek experiences outside of God because churches are often spiritually anemic and fail to lead people into God’s presence.
