Abstract

CONRADIE, Ernst M.. Ecumenical perspectives on Pentecostal pneumatology. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.43, n.1, pp. 63-81. ISSN 2312-878X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7832/43-1-54.

This contribution responds to the unbearable but undeniable tension between the ecumenical movement and the Pentecostal movement by exploring the doctrinal differences in this regard. More specifically, the aim is to understand the challenges posed to the ecumenical movement by the emphasis on Spirit baptism in Pentecostal pneumatology. It is argued that this raises questions around the relationship between Christ and the Spirit and between the Father and the Spirit for ecumenical theology and Pentecostal theology alike.

Keywords : Africa; Ecumenical movement; Pentecostalism; Pneumatology; Spirit baptism.
