As a Catholic [being very well aware of the many historical wrongs of my Church, suffice it to mention here Ferdinand Gregorovius' "Geschichte der Stadt Rom im Mittelalter"], I only can applaud Dr. Brown. For, as the great German philosopher Karl Jaspers has it, " Jésus (...) reste la dynamite (...)" que "(...) la volonté des Eglises (...) s'est appliquée avec succès, et pourtant en vain aussi, à atténuer // "Jesus (...) remains the dynamite (...) " that "(...) the endeavor of the Churches (...) has vouched with success, but also in vain, to attenuate", in: "Les grands philosophes", éditions 10/18 Plon, Paris 1966, vol. 1 p. 291 (oddly enough, I have many German philosophers in French, and some French ones in German)

There are a lot of abuses out there when it comes to doctrine, and interpretation, however, I was raised Southern Baptist (still am), but on June 4, 2006, I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. At time, I was attending a Penticostal Holiness Church. I later returned to the Baptist Church that I attended growing up and it has come along way in accepting the fact that the gifts of the Spirit are for today as well. Christians can miss out on so many blessings and spiritual growth when we hang on to denominational traditions and beliefs. Stand strong Dr. Brown!!
