Bethany, I too have seen a lot of craziness that has infiltrated the church, and indeed, masquerade as "spiritual gifts." Its too bad, and sad, that some can't discern true from counterfeit. But then, they were never exposed to the true, and thus don't know when it is counterfeit. And think anything that happens is a "move of the spirit."

My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
