Which gives rise to the idea of what spirit, small s, is present.
I don't believe that a Christian is capable of demon possession because the Spirit of God dwells within the believer not another spirit. I don't see the reference to Galatians as a good litmus unless it is meant to point to the self serving self centered antics demonstrated in those videos.
As a side thought, I was listening to a former charismatic, born and raised. He (Justin Holcomb) found his way into solid Biblical orthodoxy and orthopraxy. He observed that in his charismatic days he saw an emphasis on "Freedom in the Spirit" that very oddly ended up in a very set pattern over a short period of time. It became liturgical very quickly but was a liturgy built on human emotion and experience rather than a liturgy focused on Christ and His work.
Why does Doctrine matter? Doctrine connects us to the drama of the story of Christ in history.
The ultimate test of our spirituality is the measure of our amazement at the grace of God.
Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones
