Drafted I won't want to too hastily judge sincere Pentecostal believers. In my own testimony God used them in His Sovereign plan to bring me to Salvation, and has likewise used people from all sorts of denominations in similar ways. Why I've even heard of Roman Catholics saying something that has led to a Catholic being saved and leaving that wretched apostate religion.
If God's hand is upon this young man, and we might ought to pray that it is, God will cause all things to work together for those who love Him, not necessarily for those in the "right denomination". And Yes, He does have a way of instructing us and teaching us and correcting us as we grow in Biblical Faith and Obedience.
Isn't it terrible how fulfilling the great commision, i.e evangelizing, witnessing, ect. has not only been demonized itself, but has been labeled Proselytizing? The very word itself is meant to sound negative, and even illegal. Almost sounds like Prostituing. This negative sounding label is no accident.
