After decades of writing commentaries on Paul’s letters, Gordon Fee began to see a disconnect between how Paul describes the local church and how the church operates today, something is skewed. His concern boiled down to how churches understood the person and role of the Holy Spirit. Fee concluded that the contemporary Western church, Pentecostal and non-Pentecostal, is missing the point of the Spirit’s coming. The church is therefore “quenching the Spirit,” marginalizing and domesticating him, and ultimately making the church’s witness ineffective. Rather than ask how the Spirit “shows himself,” the church instead should be asking how it shows itself and its witness to be Spirit-driven.
