Can man have discernment?


Someone just told me that only the Holy Spirit has discernment. That is something that I was never unclear on. Man must strive for discernment. Man is capable of discernment. Discernment is not the same as being judgmental. Discernment is more than just intellectualizing but rather a blend of soul and mind. Am I wrong on this?

    It matters especially if (as you said) "spiritual easier!"

    Last comment went "carnal!" You mix? Can't do!

    GOD RELIGION KILLS!

    Blessed, I had this Jewish mentor once that taught me that upon spiritual growth there is good news and bad news. You feel things more but you feel things more. I have been blissing out after meditation and prayer and been spooked by stuff.

    Do u know who the Holy Spirit is? JESUS! Jn 14:26 "IN MY NAME?" Want to see HOW HE uses IT? Acts 1:2 "After HE ascended HE through the Holy Spirit (SELF) gave commandments to the apostles HE had "CHOSEN!" Paul was "CHOSEN!" Are u "CHOSEN?"

    Sorry Norine, but we, us humans, use words to communicate. Sure we can do it other ways like hand gestures. Language is what we use normally. You do not make any sense to the question. You really believe man has no discernment? Try driving without.

    Really. I think I can discern how close to drive behind the guy in front of me. I can discern what foods are bad for me like Sodium Benzoate. My atheist buddy an MD can discern what medications to give his patients. You wrote the comment not the HS.

    Celafoe it takes faith to please God. We all live 2 lives, at times we get it wrong at times we get it right. We are being perfected, not perfect yet. Salvation and repentance is a continual process not a once off event. Which is why there is grace.
