There are some acronyms and terminology I use in my posts. Some are used in quotes, meaning they have a certain connotation to the charismatic church, not necessarily held to by the rest of Christiandom, or the scriptures themselves.
CLB – church left behind. I don’t know who coined this term.
charismania– ok so much for not getting sarcastic. As you suspect this is a blending of the words charismatic, as in charismatic church, and mania– meaning the excesses prevalent in many charismatic church settings.
church– I usually use this term the way people use it in conversation, meaning a particular group of people who usually meet in a particular place and a particular time, as in saying I go to such-and-such church. I know there is a more exact Biblical understanding of the word.
PM– prophetic movement. While the Bible is full of prophecy, why do we need a ‘movement’ which has its own terms and practices as a sub set of the true church?
worship – Used in many charismatic circles where it means the musical part of a service as opposed to the biblical meaning of living our entire lives as a sacrifice. As in “The worship was awesome.” “You guys really rocked the worship.”
