Would someone show me a Biblical justification for the "slain in the spirit" phenomenon prevelant in so many charismatic churches today?
Please keep in mind that I am not being critical or judgemental; I have seen many wonderful expressions of God's power in the past few years, and have even experienced this myself. The issue I am pondering is whether or not it is of God or of something else.
Here's a central question to consider, "If God is knocking them down by His power, why do we think men are needed to catch them?" Would God purposefully hurt them as a blessing?
Biblical, thoughtful and compassionate responses only please!
