Discussion for Luke 12

  • A disciple
    Irene, have you not read the part where the Lord Jesus warns against blasphemy of the Holy Ghost? This terrible warning of eternal damnation concerns those who said Jesus had an unclean spirit; and who were NEVER saved Christians! You spend a lot of time "instructing" others; but the foundation and building of understanding knowledge of the Spirit of Truth must be irrefutable as Whom we speak for.

    I really don't see how, through writing, talking, anyone could 'force' anyone to do anything. If that were the case - you better talk to God, Bruce; His 'language' is much more 'forceful' than mine. I'm not angry with you; Please believe that. I pray that your day will be blessed of God - in Jesus name, Amen
  • Bruce
    Irene:The Scripture says he that speaks evil of the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness-,describes came down and they said, Jesus has a devil: that's saying The Holy Ghost is a devil:Mark 3:22-30/ Are you trying to force people to believe what you do? Where in scripture does it say the things you said?/ Hebrews 9:12 redemption through his blood forever Revelations 1:5 washed by his blood/1John 1:9
  • Irene123
    V. 10 - One who blasphemes against the Holy Ghost is one who has been saved, walked with Jesus for a time, then for one 'worldly' reason or another, has left the church and then began teaching friends, family, that it's all a lie, i.e. the healing, the answered prayer, the receiving of the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in tongues, and etc.
  • Irene123
    To Steph - I have to ask (and this is an honest, sincere question) why do you think the Bible has hung around for 2,000 yrs., give or take a hundred, if no one should read it?
  • Irene123
    V. 1 - " ..... there were an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another ..... " ; can you imagine?! Hungry, honest souls as well as the Pharisees and Sadducees. The Lord God just shone His light on Jesus for all to see. Even the false prophets that came before Jesus didn't have such a following. People KNEW Jesus was - different.
