“And the fact that no where does that Scripture simply say Jesus is God Almighty is an example of why Protestants have to retreat to the claim of special revelation by guidance of the Holy Spirit,”
Actually, Scripture states that believers are given the Holy Spirit for guidance. This is a common misconception by Catholics as they think equate it with some “private interpretation unauthorized by Scripture, contradictory to Scripture and unverifiable” which is patent nonsense. Those who deny the aid of the Holy Spirit and His presence in the life of the believer demonstrate that they have no idea Who He is and how He operates - which is sad in the extreme. They posit themselves in contradiction to Scripture.
Then why is there no universally accepted Protestant doctrine of Baptism?
Where does it say believers are compelled to follow that guidance?
Actually, Scripture states that believers are given the Holy Spirit for guidance.
It would appear the Spirit’s major job is to point to Jesus?
I have heard some sermons say if we are talking about the spirit and not Jesus, it ain’t the Spirit.
