Questions on the Pentecostal Religion

Hello, my name is VerĂ³nica. I was searching on the web some sites related to Pentecostal religion but I need information about some specific points, that's the reason why I'm writing to you. I'll be very thankful if you help me to answer the following questions about this religion:


1) Is economical support to the religious community compulsory? If yes, how?
2) Are there any precepts regarding food?
3) Does hell exist?
4) Is divorce allowed?
5) Is marriage with somebody of a different religion allowed?


Once again, I will really appreciate your help, I'm doing a homework for college.


Thanks, bye!




Ed Babinski: I ONLY HAD A PENTECOSTAL MINISTER FRIEND IN COLLEGE AND ATTENDED A FEW PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES FROM TIME TO TIME. MOST OF THE TIME I ATTENDED NON-PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES.


I THINK THE LARGEST SINGLE PENTECOSTAL DENOMINATION IS THE "ASSEMBLIES OF GOD," CHECK THEM OUT ON THE WEB FOR DEFINITIVE ANSWERS


1) Is economical support to the religious community compulsory? If yes, how?


ED: All churches try to get people to give them money, the usual scheme is called, "tithing," based on some misunderstood bible verses that appear to say you should give 10% of your income to the church, priests, whatever.


2) Are there any precepts regarding food?


ED: In Pentecostalism? None that I know of. Though Pentecostalism includes many weird sub-sects with odd beliefs.


3) Does hell exist?


ED: For most of them yes. In fact, I believe I recently read in CHRISTIANITY TODAY about a Pentecostal minister who became a universalist and who was forced out of his denomination because of that.


4) Is divorce allowed?


ED: Heavily frowned upon, though it happens.


5) Is marriage with somebody of a different religion allowed?


ED: Again, frowned upon. Anyone who marries a devout Pentecostal will likely be taken to church by their spouse until they either convert or frictions develop. That's true of all heavily devout evangelical religions.


Once again, I will really appreciate your help, I'm doing a homework for college.


Thanks, bye!
