What my childhood neo-Pentecostal community forgot

Or, didn’t know:

“God, when he makes the prophet, does not unmake the man. He leaves all his faculties in the natural state, to enable him to judge of his inspirations, whether they be of divine original or no. When he illuminates the mind with supernatural light, he does not extinguish that which is natural.” — John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, “Of Enthusiasm”
