'Miracle' of Gold Teeth?


#1

[LEFT]My father-in-law is Pentecostal, not AG though, and he is always talking about how God is always performing miraces at campmeeting. (He has never attended one mind you, he only hears about them). But, oddly, the ‘miracle’ that always seems to be occurring is that after one is ‘slain in the spirit’, he or she wakes up with a full set of ‘Gold Teeth’. Heh. He believes God does this, but sneers at miracles such as, Lanciano, or those at Lourdes.

Any comments or helps in communicating with him would be appreciated.[/LEFT]

Hmmm… sounds like “bling bling theology” to me. :eek:

My late Mother-in-law used to relate of men attending Pentecostal camp meetings in order to view the ladies after their clothing was disarranged after being 'slain in the Spirit." :stuck_out_tongue:

an anglican friend of mine (that’s episcopalian for y’all in america) says he would believe that these rosary style miracles were for real if gold rosaries turned into wood. i’m not sure how that works out with teeth…just thought i’d share that with you…

I went to high school in the ghetto.

Wanna impress me? Show me a black pentecostal congregation whose congreants’ teeth turn from gold to . . .well . . . real teeth!

Aight?

:cool:

:rotfl:

It was such as this that was responsible, in part, for driving me out of pentecostalism/charismaticism altogether. I was a subscriber to Charisma magazine, which majored in that sort of thing, and they were carrying all sorts of reports about this happening, but without documentation or before/after reports from valid dentists.

There were also reports of gold dust settling over the congregation–well, someone got a sample, and it turned out to be gold-colored plastic. I was outta there.
