Abstract

[This chapter investigates the aspects of the Charismatic Movement that caused tensions between charismatic and non-charismatic Christians in Taiwan from 1970 to 1995. Lin explores the views of the Mandarin- and Taiwanese-speaking churches separately by studying the Campus Magazine 校園雜誌 of the Campus Evangelical Fellowship, and publications of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, including Taiwan Church News 台灣教會公報 and The Messenger (New) 使者新刊. Additionally, Lin discusses the negative effects of the “1995 Prophecy” and the corresponding actions that Taiwanese church leaders took. Whether sympathetic to the charismatic message or not, a considerable number of Taiwanese Christians across denominational lines from 1970 to 1995 affirmed the existence of such spiritual gifts as prophesy and healing in the present day—even if they did not show equal enthusiasm about engaging these gifts; few questioned the need for deliverance ministry. Moreover, a significant number of non-charismatic Christians could claim to have engaged in charismatic activities at some point in their lives. As non-charismatic Christians found themselves sharing more in common with charismatic Christians than they ever dared to imagine, they are left to reckon with their often-snubbed inherent charismatic sensibilities.]
