Joseph Smith and Brigham Young both had experiences with speaking and praying in tongues, but it is all but disappeared from the church today.
Ah okay. I did not know this. Thank you for the information!

I felt I needed a non-biased person, someone who didn't know me, to pray over me, and possibly give me a different perspective of my particular situation, other than what those around me were giving me. I had been struggling with doubts about the way my life was headed and it was getting harder and harder to stay positive. Just needed someone other than those around me to pray for me. I felt it would help me with my faith, give me strength, and encourage me and it did.

We are all in the same body of Christ and can help each other out where needed, especially by praying for one another.

I think it's important to step outside our particular faith sometimes and allow others to pray for us regardless of their particular Christian background, if just to give ourselves another perspective.

No longer was the bible the sole rule for deciding church practice but God was doing a new thing that He wanted everyone to get on board with. Hymns were being used less and less and replaced with shallow repetative hypnotic choruses. Those who questioned things got called dividers, pharisees and generally people who were not Spirit filled.
Teachings came in wherby it was claimed that as faith is the force that God used to create the world we can now tap into that same power and speak into being the things that we want, you just had to get a right vision of it and have faith in your faith, (Yongi cho).
And worst of all the Toronto experience I can't think of another so called move of the Spirit that has caused so much division in modern days as this, this was the straw that broke the camels back and has infected most pentecostalism in the U.K. My family (I was 12) and some others left that church in protest.
I praise God for the few biblical teachers that stood against these errors even when it meant personal loss, their reward is surely in heaven as they turned many to righteosuness.

I tell you now if I could find a pentecostal church that submitted to the authority of the teachings of Jesus and the apostles i would go to it.

So how do you determine if it's of the 'occult' kind or not? Trust your judgement?

Well i guess it's in whose name you do it in if you are praying to the God of the bible then it would not be occultic. Also if the interpretation of it is not contradictory to Gods word, that would definatly not be from the Holy SPirit, therefore would be of the flesh or a decieving spirit. My point was that is not in itself a proof of Godly spirituality and has been a bridge (not that this concerns you) in ecumenism.
