So you equate someone disagreeing with you on the authority of God’s Word as “being slammed”? Doesn’t take much to feel like a victim, does it? That’s being a bit extreme. I take issue with your conflation of “light” with the “Holy Spirit” as I would anyone’s misrepresentation of the Word. If that offends you, then please be more cautious with your use of God’s Word, because believers will take issue with it being used in a fashion inconsistent with what is said. The stakes are simply too high to allow “universalism” (under any name it’s all the same) to be represented as Scriptural. It simply is not.
As for “labeling” you, I did no such thing, but to be perfectly frank— if your position is that everyone has the Holy Spirit, then you are preaching a different Gospel and that cannot go unanswered. It does not make me “feel” one way or the other, but yes, I will refute heresy when it appears here or elsewhere because God’s Word is not to be taken lightly and as a believer I take it very very seriously. Misrepresenting His Word (regardless of the label one puts on it) does not glorify Christ. Hence the need to be very very careful with what one says and examine Scripture carefully because it never contradicts itself.
As always, you have misquoted me and seek to blame me saying things I did not. I said you cannot offend me. You didn’t. Okay. All is well.
Likewise, I did not say that everyone has the Holy Spirit. I said and I gave Scriptural proof that everyone has the foundation thatJesus Christ himself laid. the light of which is in all men. All build on this foundation. Please read the words.
Once again, I will say to you, of what use is a light that shines in darkness? Does Scripture not state that if spiritual light shines in darkness, how great then is the light?
The Holy Spirit was sent to remind and to teach everything that Jesus taught. likewise, the Holy Spirit, brings to light the light which is the foundation of all men. How else can the light that shines in darkness begin to shine in light and truth, if not for the Holy Spirit?
Truly, read the words, read them and mediate on them. Pray for understanding. All you are refuting is your own words, because I have said nothing that I have not given full Scriptural proof. Are you so uncomfortable in your own belief that the only way you can shore it up is to misrepresent?
Refute all you like, spend your life looking down on others who do not share your views. I am perfectly fine with this, if this is who you are then God has made you this way for a reason. The reason though is not for me to know or surmise, rather it is to always search for common ground and that ground always is love and where there is love, there is light, the foundation of Christ himself.
I will agree with you 100% Scripture cannot contradict itself. I know this and can reconcile the entire Scriptures from beginning to end. The end does not end with Revelation, that my friend is only the beginning of the end.
From the Darby bible: John 12:32. and I, if I be lifted up out of the earth, will draw all to me.
How great then is the light should have been how great then is the DARKNESS.
SORRY about that
