Pentecostal dating guidelines
Mc Pherson's articulation of the United States as a nation founded and sustained by divine inspiration continues to be echoed by many pastors in churches today.News coverage sensationalized her misfortunes with family and church members; particularly inflaming accusations she had fabricated her reported kidnapping, turning it into a national spectacle..Aimee Semple Mc Pherson (Aimée, in the original French; October 9, 1890 – September 27, 1944), also known as Sister Aimee or simply Sister, was a Canadian-American Pentecostal evangelist and media celebrity in the 1920s and 1930s, famous for founding the Foursquare Church.Mc Pherson has been noted as a pioneer in the use of modern media, because she used radio to draw on the growing appeal of popular entertainment in North America and incorporated other forms into her weekly sermons at Angelus Temple, one of the first megachurches.Robert supported them as a foundry worker and preached at the local Pentecostal mission.Together, they studied the Bible, Aimee claiming Robert taught her all she knew; though other observers state she was far more knowledgeable than she let on.A few weeks later, a note was received inviting him to join her in evangelistic work.
At that same revival meeting, Aimee became enraptured not only by the message that Robert Semple gave, but also with Robert himself.
In high school, she was taught Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution.
While attending a revival meeting in December 1907, Aimee met Robert James Semple, a Pentecostal missionary from Ireland.
She felt the call to preach tug at her even more strongly after the birth of Rolf.
Then in, 1914, she fell seriously ill, and Mc Pherson states she again heard the persistent voice, asking her to go preach while in the holding room after a failed operation.She decided to dedicate her life to both God and Robert, and after a short courtship, they were married on August 12, 1908, in a Salvation Army ceremony, pledging never to allow their marriage to lessen their devotion to God, affection for comrades, or faithfulness in the Army.
