To #9 I might add staying away from the extreme sectors of the "Prophetic Movement".

All these are absolutely correct. This "man-centered orientation" is so systemic in the charismatic movement that few even hold to classic Arminianism anymore. Pelagianism & open theism has replaced much of the Arminianism in the charismatic movement. I have had to flee to a Presbyterian Church just to find a more robust view of the gospel and remain a "secret charismatic". I will not even get started about the hyper eschatological zionism running rampant in the "global prayer movement". Thanks for posting such a good article. I will turn this article into an outline of prayer for our brothers in the charismatic movement!

I appreciate these solid points very much; they're a great call for balance. What seems out of place to me, however, is #6. With respect, dispensationalism is not distinctly a charismatic phenomenon, nor is "Christian Zionism" distinctly a dispensational phenomenon. Mike Bickle, for example, rejects the dispensational pre-trib rapture, and other godly men like John Owen, Spurgeon, J.C. Ryle, M'Cheyne, the Bonar brothers, and Barry Horner today have rightly affirmed God's continuing faithfulness to the Jewish people as a nation while holding to varying non-dispensational eschatologies.
