Belief without the Holy Spirit?


If what many Christians these days claim is true, that it is impossible to come to have faith in the biblical god without the intervention and interpretation of the Holy Spirit, why was the great commission necessary? Why leave conversion and evangelism in the hands of humans at all? Why would a written Bible be necessary either, to be interpreted differently at will by those who claim to be guided by the Holy Spirit, but who still disagree with each other?

    Look in the Mirrir and you will see him. He is WITHIN you, not outside of you. He was never outside of you. Thait is what the religions want you to believe. Luke 17:20-22 and it will tell you what Jesus said about where he and the Kingdom is.

    JOE: I Pet 1:17 "Father judgeth" Whose going to "judge" the world? Matt 25:31-46; Acts 17:31; You gave me a Scripture in I Pet & I read on and HS told me to tell u this! Jesus is a SPIRIT! Matt 28:18 "ALL POWER..." Where is God then, Asleep?

    Then there are those of us that believe that we are gods according to what Jesus states in that very same Bible that the kingdom and the laws were put WITHIN us. We are not part of God, he/she is part of us.

    If you wait until you cease to be natural--it will be too late. You should try to be Christlike but also walk in the spirit! Don't put your salvation off!

    How do you know that your guide is the Holy Spirit and not yourself or, even worse, a demon? If Christians can't agree on what the Bible means, or often what it even says or what the Holy Spirit says, how is it reliable and not just invented?

    Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest gift of God the Father and His Holy Spirit, and should be the primary message of the Christian church, taking precedence over all differences, whether they be theological, denominatio

    If it's in Scripture, It's the Holy Spirit! (II Tim 3:16) Ur right we can only "see" to the ext the HS allows us! Rm 12:3 Limited "measures of faith!" However, some man has told you! It's up to u to STUDY! (II 2:15)
