I never said anything about people in our church being blind, just struck down. God did it once, he is pleanty able to do it again. God healed certain illneseses only once, that doesnt mean he cant do it again. If god did it once, hell do it again.

Are you nuts?!! Except a man be born of the water and of the spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of god.(I cant remember the reference on this, I think it is in John chapter 3) So yes, baptisim in jesus name is required for salvation. Jesus said to go to jerusalem to wait for his sign, he may as well have said go speak in tounges, cause that was his sign, which was also propgesied by Isiah.

Yes it is a refilling sign, and a filling sign. You should be able to get the same effect twice on anything. If you fill a cup part way with water, it will splash around, fill it more, it will splash around, fill it more, it spashes out all over. You get filled with the holy ghost, you speak in tounges, you get filled again, you speak in tounges again, you get filled more, you may dance around or whatever god wants you to do. Ok, it is volantary to the point where you have to want it bad enough, and realize your need for it. And, god has to see that your ready to recieve it. And, it is neccesary for salvation because the verse I stated before says so.

Sorry, I should have said infilling and refilling. And, paul wrote the church in corrinth(i think) to tell them to do more than runn around speaking in tounges every sunday, so they did what we do to, and yes we do do more than just speak in tounges.

People dont jump up and do anything(unless they feel like dancing befro god). If your praying, you may start speaking in tounges, but its no louder than your prayr.

Trinitarian: Believe in 3 gods, father, son, holyghost
oneness: all these are 1
And, to state my position, here o isrial the lord our god is one lord. And, I and my father are one.
