Just want to say here that your explanation is absolutely wonderful. Voted up.
Greatly appreciate this answer accordingly to the Bible. Exactly what i wanted to say. Without Him - The Holy Spirit we can do nothing! Amen to this answer
Thank you Cynthtggt.
An answer which includes wisdom and knowledge, which are extremely necessary. Discernment can be used to imply shrewdness, acumen and judgement in a human way. Wisdom implies that which is given from within, or coming from God. Happy she used them.
Thanks D.William .. i sill surely go through it. People filled with the Spirit of the Living God will be able to discern well and operate their lives in such manner and use this Special gift in the walks of their lives.
Those who apply all human behavior to their religions beliefs are missing something when the reality of human nature is negated by false faith. Knowledge and intelligence must prevail above childhood fantasy.
D. William - Is it childhood fantasy when one recognizes that actions speak louder than words? Is it false faith when intuition goes beyond intellectual dogma to see that even Voltaire would disagree with you?
you are mixing apples with oranges. logical discernment is learned by deductive reasoning. When religion teaches hatred and it is accepted blindly, this is nonsensical. Why would i care about Voltaire"s opinion? I have learned to think for mhyself
If you hate all those who believe in God, you are not using deductive reasoning, only discrimination. You ought to read Voltaire to acquire knowledge. I do not see anyone being rude to anyone else on this forum except you. Be specific.
No intent 2 B rude. I didn't realize this was a religious question. I apologize. Odd tho that anyone who doesn't believe in organized religion is automatically labeled as a non believer in God. i will be more careful about entering biased questions.
Greatly appreciate your input. Yes it is a special gift to all believers of Jesus Christ. The Book of Acts 17:11 says it better. God Bless you my dear
Just want to add that Christianity is not a religion; but if you think religion teaches hate, you ought to acquaint yourself with a little history, before religion, when people slaughtering people was a daily occurrence.
Thank you cynthtggt for your reply. True, the Holy Spirit guides us into each and every step of life we move but this is only done once you commit your self to Obey The Word of the Lord. He will lead you in the paths of righteousness.
Thank you Rina for your feedback on my answer, you may find my other hubs useful- they are quite deep teachings some aimed at non-believers i.e. atheists, other writings are for the benefit of believers.
Amen, sister, amen. I would only add one thing to that - the Word of God. If we bury ourselves in it, along with our gift of discernment, we'll know what the real thing is because we've been armed with the Word of God. Well done.
AMEN! - GOD'S SPIRIT IS IN YOU .. AMEN! GOD BE WITH YOU AS YOU LEAD HIS PEOPLE - YOU HAVE THE GIFT OF DISCERNMENT!
Yes Ann1Az2, the Word of God is essential. I'm a brother, actually! It is important to bury ourselves in God's Word--it's our Shield from Satan. Thank you, Rina! I do have the gift of discernment and it will continue to grow!

I forgot to add. There is no "spirit of discernment". It is discernment by the Holy Spirit. You must hear from Him.
"Discerning" what is true is given to those who have the gift of discernment, inasmuch as there are others who have different gifts.
there is a gift of discernment yes, but everyone is supposed to have a measure of discernment. The closer the relationship one has to the Holy Spirit the greater the measure of discernment that is available to them.
Thanks SparrowMinistries and greatly appreciate you input into this question. I am very much eager to learn about 'Discerning the Spirits" Its a gift from god. But some people fail to recognize and do not operate in the Holy Spirit filled mode.
