Re: The Holy Spirit

I guess my problem at this point is that I don't know what would be an accurate Scriptural definition of 'soul'. There are different teachings out there, but I've never run across one that I was totally comfortable with. http://biblicalcounsellingresources.s3.amazonaws.com/CCEF/dichotomy-or-trichot...

Re: The Holy Spirit

Still thinking some of these things through. My basic concern is that we don't get to the point where we only know we have the Spirit because the Bible says we do. For the believers in the New Testament it was an obvious experience, something my church in my growing up years minimized. So someone in...

The Holy Spirit

Is there a difference, biblically, between "having" the Spirit and "being full" of the Spirit?
