Ern Baxter on Word and Spirit

"If we don't maintain balance between the didatic and the pneumatic - the Word and the Spirit - we will get off the track. When there is an overemphasis on doctrinal rectitude and conceptual accuracy to the neglect of the inspirational and the pneumatic or the charismatic, the Christian life deteriorates into an intellectual exercise and produces little spiritual food. On the other hand when people get too involved with the experiential and the emotional without hedging it with biblical disciplines and guidelines, they go off into fanaticism and radicalism and the movement eventially dissapates".
