Correction

Textual Criticism is typically not a type of "higher criticism" and I should have known that. Higher Criticism is usually source criticism, redaction criticism and form criticism. They are typically looked at as looking at the texts from historical/scientific perspectives. They are also looked at as liberal means of looking at texts from most conservatives. They have been tools used by liberal/non-faith scholars, but they don't necessarily have to be linked to a liberal/historical non faith perspective. I still think there are ways that these tools can be used and still maintain the belief in the inspiration of the Scriptures.

Man you are so much more intelligent than I am. I'm not sure what you just said. What about us common lay folk?

What about the Assemblies of God? Our current church has that affiliation.

We went to a AofG church in Springfield the year we lived down here. We didn't even know it was until an orientation class. No tongues in the worship setting. I led a small group college Bible study so nothing there. I don't think I would have ever joined for the long run, but it was a good experience. They were more of a Willowcreek contemporary church than your typical AofG church.

We may be Willowcreek associated as well. Sounds about the same. If you get bored pick out a sermon to listen to from my link and website.
