So how was an idea confirmed by the Spirit long after Biblical times?


Is the Spirit now promoting gay marriage?


What other ideas is the Spirit promoting now that we should be aware of?


Do you realize that Paul wrote the commandments of God and by quoting them ONE IS QUOTING AUTHORITY and not just for someone to be reminded of it?

For most, it was just the realization that it really is just an application of the Golden Rule that was never considered before. You know ther actually ARE some people who believe that slavery is ok because God made laws about the humane treatment of slaves, and Paul gave advice about it too.

The Spirit will ALWAYS promoter equal treatment for people who are NOT committing sin.

Paul was NOT giving commandments of God and taught that we are not under law but under that commitment to concern for the well-being of everyone that is the kind of love Jesus taught.
