Curly, I did go through all the scriptures on my thread of the topical study of the Spirit to see if I had missed something. I am not incapable of doing that....i.e. missing something.
As you , and all who have read my posts, should realize by now, I am convinced that the word of God contains all that is needed for life and godliness, for the Christian. I am concerned by anything that is added to it, or taken away from it, when it pretains to doctrine.
I know, we, (including me), have given our thoughts on differant topics, but our thoughts are not the word of God. If it conflicts with the word, we are in danger.

Thank you (and StirringWaters), for your last posts. I posted my post too late in the day, and should never post in the evening when I am tiring....

Peace,
Marian

I am not arguing with, but like I said I felt the same way right up to the moment He broke my heart. I am merely trying to relate to you, no judging, no declarations, just sharing.

I will forever mention this. I left the faith while I was at MY height in it. I was having the best time of my life being a Christian. No, I wasn't mad at god. Wasn't disillusioned with any pastors or church members. Wasn't yearning to be in the world. Wasn't under any persecution or duress. Was in my happy bliss "in the lord" and then common sense came a knocking.
Common sense as in what, what convinced you otherwise?

Ahhh, thank you sister ILNC for that scripture reference. God is working through you today (or yesterday, I guess it was). I tried to rep you but........well, you know. We never know when we quote scripture who needs that one particular scripture and just how important it is to someone. God is at work through all of his saints, and today your scripture was meant for me, and I'm sure many others.

Common sense is a trait of the carnal mind, which at its root is the enemy of God.

Little Elmer, I love you as a brother so please don't see this as criticism but I don't agree.

I believe that in our carnal state we pervert everything God supplies us with. Common sense can be used rightly when looking at creation and knowing there must be a Creator. That's me
