U study from Realize the real lies point of view of the Bible and not the Holy Spirit's. How many times do I have 2 allege 2 u knuckleheads, that if you're reading the Bible without the discernment of the Holy Spirit the Bible will appear as pure foolishness (I Corinthians 2:14). For 1 2 verily saavy the profound truths of the Bible, it's obligatory that u have 2 be of the elect. That's wherefore you're sore nonplussed about the Bible. "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father hath sent in My name, HE SHALL TEACH YOUl things" -John 14:26.
Please construe 2 me how the study of denominations and the Bible are congruent?
I DID not mince words... I said I studied IN several denominations of christianity meaning studying THE BIBLE from different denominations, you dimbulb!
I do not need to be in the throes of some contrived state of exstacy to understand what I am reading.
I have had plenty of spiritual experiences, and I continue on a spiritual path, but it is not YOUR spiritual path., so you defy it to be not so. but you are the one with the closed mind and the narrow attitudes... for spirituality lives in all flavors and to imply that Christianity is the only true way to know God is to say that you are devout a hypocrite who cannot accept anything but a very limitted edition of what could be a very enlightening experience.
accepting your POV has been tiring not because you may be right, but you denounce e very other thought as wrong......
so how is it being God, since you seem to know whats good for everyone else?> do you tell everyone how to conduct themselves as well?
How does God feel about your martinet ways and your intolerant attitudes?
