It's faith.

It's the witness of the Holy Spirit.

Okay, we are on the same wavelength. Now, what are the characteristics of the Holy Spirit that enable you to recognize what is compatible with this Spirit and what is NOT?????

I know we are not on the same frequency.

"Characteristics of the Holy Spirit"... if you have to ask, you don't have Him.

You can read John chapters 14-16 for what Jesus said about the Holy Spirit.

You know the wheat and the tares are raised up together, and it's impossible to tell the tares from the wheat until they bear fruit at full maturity, and are separated from the ground, raised up by the sickle. The tares are poisonous, but appear at every stage but the last, to be wheat. Such it is in the end of this age. Peace

I don't have to ask, but I wanted to hear what YOU THINK they are. I KNOW what they are from 1 Cor 13, Galatians 5 and the Sermon on the Mount. Is that your understanding too???

It doesn't matter what I think. I have figured that out from being on C-D since 2009.

And look - I suggested what to read and you came back with entirely different verses. That's how much "what I think", matters.
