First, to offer humans an concept of the sheer measurement and achieve of the NAR circulation. And moment, to systematize its key teachings and practices and overview them at the foundation of Scripture and cautious reasoning … . In our judgment, the NAR standpoint crosses those limitations [that is, definite wide parameters, published in Scripture and practiced within the ancient orthodox church], and it does so partially due to unsuitable theology rooted in a wrong knowing of Scripture. we want to warn readers a few attainable confusion: a few critics have associated the NAR stream with mainstream Pentecostalism and charismatics. we don't do that. actually, it's our rivalry that the NAR circulate deviates from classical Pentecostal and charismatic teachings.
