      But if you have to do anything--light a candle, gather with other pentecostals, have soft music, whatever--it is something earned, or at least we could say that the recipient has shared in the process of making it possible.

      Obviously, I and others would say, if it is a gift then it is freely given, not something you induce. That's kind of like the old dispute over salvation being by faith alone versus the Catholic view which holds that the person has to have faith but also build up a record of acceptable behavior and both are taken into account by God.

      If that were meant to apply to the gifts of the Holy Ghost, however, you wouldn't have to set the stage with ordinary trappings like a lit candle--not any more than you would have to be taught how to speak in tongues. Any believer who wanted to heal the sick with a touch or give forth with prophesies or perform miracles would simply ask for the power and get it.

      Its not like you can just go to the restroom and say "God give me the gift of tongues" and bam.
      I light a candle often when I pray, it was only a suggestion

      I know. I wasn't intending to focus on that particular example, but it may have seemed so.

      I was walking across Langley Park when I first spoke in tongues - in retrospect it was a bit of happy gibberish. It was a lovely morning at the end of spring. Beautiful.

      Hidden Content Jesus said: "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father, who is in heaven. And I say to you, that you are Rock [Peter], and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.
      Matthew 16:17-18

      What you are teaching is an occult magic and not a Spirit directed gift. Any discerning person must reject your pagan teaching.

      In your case you are asking demons into your abode. That needs to be abandoned as soon as you can.

      Indeed, a gift is something you cannot demand from the Sovereign King. Your pagan, occult, candlelighting is wickedly wrong.
