What truth was Jesus referring to when He said these words and does this have any connection to the Spirit of Truth? Jesus also said in John 18: part of verse 37 (NKJV) "Everyone who IS OF the truth hears my voice." What does this mean, " who is of "? I have my opinion but I would like to hear your's.

celafoe- Thank you for the correction and your answer.
God bless brother.
The correct: John 8:30-33
.., many believed in him; Jesus, therefore, said unto the Jews who believed in him, `If ye may remain in my word, truly my disciples ye are, and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.'
lg- maybe in your bible but not in a real one
Yes, taking responsibility for ones thoughts and action and not blaming it on others weather they be humans, animals or a God or a Satan. Most religions do NOT teach these things.
lone77star- Being spirit minded is needed when it comes to understanding God's word. Without it then it is hopeless. But I do believe there are some cases in the bible that can be taken literally such as commandments. Thanks for your answer.
Foodeee- I believe the verses you quoted is John 14:6 and I agree with your comment. Thank you for your imput. Blessings.
I agree with that. Look at the times he lived in. Religion set guilt trips but Jesus said God is You and everything is in you and so is the Kingdom of God. Not in a book or in a church. Be careful with your thoughts and Love others as yourself.
manatita44- Thank you for sharing your insight and understanding with us.
DAvis36- Thank you for your answer. God sees what's in our hearts. Even when we are led by the heart we still need to follow in the right direction. I hope you will some day take the time to read and study the bible. It will touch your heart. Thanks.
My pleasure graceinus but i would like to add that when we're led by our heart, it is the right direction always & we would have to follow it..That's why the L.O.A isn't real & doesn't work, because those desires would be the minds desires.
Dave36- Please take the time to read Matthew 15: 18-19. It reveals that sometimes the thoughts of the heart can mislead us if where not careful. God bless
Thanks graceinus ill check that out, & let you know what i think about it.
We cannot trust the natural mans way of thinking (heart)
Jer 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
celafoe- I had not noticed or recall reading Jer 17:9 before, thank you for mentioning it.
