THIS WEEK WE'RE IN:

Ecclesiastes

IS PESSIMISM ANTI-PENTECOSTAL?

DIVE PART 2


As I read Ecclesiastes, my mind is in a battle. Every word goes against my Pentecostal faith-based, ‘ensure we are super-positive’ nature. How can this be in my Bible? This guy definitely would not be on the preaching team. Yet our Bible clearly and boldly puts this man’s thoughts on display, as a model, an example. It comes in parallel with the question: why is Job in the Bible?

So, is this pessimism literature? This book that was created to voice the worst our brain can come up with, a book that was created in line with ancient Near Eastern pessimism texts. Is this anti to our faith-talk, faith-walk teachings of today? And how do we apply them as faith-filled, super-positive Pentecostals?
