    we are supposed to be the temple of God. after we accept Christ as our personal savior we become His temple, or dwelling place, tha Holy spirit also dwells in us and is there to teach and make the things of God clear to us. The word of God/ the bible, is written for us and the Holy spirit will help us under stand Gods word.
