My wife has fallen away from the Catholic Faith and has become a minister for a fundamental very pentacostal (so called non-denominational) church. Much of their religion revolves around the “receiving the indwelling of the Holy Spirit” which involves speaking in tongues, being slain in the spirit, emotional worship and emotional preaching. She talks all the time about the Holy Spirit told her this and told her that especially in regards to the giving of tithes and offerings. Any problems that I might have with the excesses of her offerings over and above tithing leads to her saying the Holy Spirit told her to write this check for this and that. How can I refute her? She makes it sound like I am saying no to God.
Her church also goes overboard with the “sowing seed” teachings that if you sow your seed it will be returned abundantly. They also teach the “word-faith” mumbo jumbo that what you speak is what you will get. I am at a loss as what to do.
