While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources, presented from neutral, pro, and contra viewpoints.

Note: A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

Christian Lonnie Frisbee Testimony Part 1 The person who uploaded this video (which consists of still shots of Lonnie) to Google Videos wrote the following introduction:

Lonnie Frisbee was asked to speak by Pastor John Wimber at his church on Mother’s Day 1988. This is the turning point for Wimber concerning … all » the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. God poured out the Holy Spirit on this meeting. It confused John at first, until Tom Stype called him to tell him it was of God. Pay close attention to how Lonnie “sets the table” for the outpouring in this first part…

Christian Lonnie Frisbee Testimony Part 2

This is perhaps one of the prime examples of Lonnie’s ministry style. At the end listen closely to the … all » chaos that transpired as the Holy Spirit honors lonnie’s ministering. People fell over one another, slain by the Holy Spirit, and began speaking in tongues! The girl playing the guitar trys to maintain some “respectability” by playing worship songs as everything is taking place. Unfortunately the audio tech lowered Lonnie’s mike and went to the girl’s mic as the primary feed. But if you listen closely you can hear Lonnie “doing~the~stuff” in the background. It is believed by some that this very meeting inspired the Vineyard Church movement.
