Charismatic Headcases?

Dan Edelen has some wise words for those of us who call ourselves charismatic: How not to be a charismatic headcase.
Here are the headlines:

  • 1. Stop being so undiscerning
  • 2. Stop letting immature people minister to others "charismatically"
  • 3. Stop overemphasizing the gifts and the people who have them
  • 4. Stop living in a charismatic ghetto
  • 5. Stop practicing magic
I like Mark Driscoll's definition of himself as a charismatic-with-a-seatbelt. (So long as that seatbelt is the Bible)
