The Bible addresses the hardships that come with marrying a nonbeliever, so that's rather clear.
But single Christians may be tempted to say, "Well, it doesn't talk about dating. " To answer, it's important to take a step back and look at some principles found in Scripture.
Here’s why: -Apostolic Pentecostals believe that one must have the Acts experience (that is, repenting of your sins, being baptized in the name of Jesus, and receiving the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues).
I firmly believed this too and had experienced this and seen others experience this.
But they were wrong to say that what the Bible says is necessary for salvation is not necessary. The Bible teaches about apparel in Deuteronomy 22:5. Furthermore, I will say this (because someone will undoubtedly make a “that’s legalism” comment) i have never been to an A. As mentioned above, though, a pastor cannot force someone to do or not do something and I have yet to see someone shunned for not following any of these. If we truly believe the Bible is infallible don’t we want to go to churches that preach the entire Bible? – The Apostolic Pentecostal church rejects the idea of the Trinity. Neither are the terms “God the Son,” or “God the Holy Ghost”.
And one day, I reasoned, “They’re right.” So I left the Apostolic Pentecostal church.
And yet, Paul asked in Acts 19:2, “Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? A pastor teaches the Bible; it is up to the believer to confirm the teaching in the Word and follow it. – The Apostolic Pentecostal church teaches that Christians ought not to drink, watch TV, wear makeup or jewelry. The Bible refers to drunkenness as a sin, teaches us to not “set any wicked thing before mine eyes”, teaches us that we should dress modestly and not draw attention to ourselves.
” So my family was right, God does love everybody and wants everybody to be saved. These are referred to as “holiness standards” and they do vary from church to church. And few churches I looked into outside of the Apostolic Pentecostal church taught these principles.
However, my family members pointed out to me that for someone to say you have to follow what this verse says in order to be saved is ludicrous; “God loves everybody and wants everybody to be saved,” they said.
And I reasoned, – I later heard from another person, after I had already left the Apostolic Pentecostal church, that a problem with them is that they reject the trinity.
