  1. We all start near the same place you find yourself now, knowing, but not fully accepting or understanding who God is. The relationship with GOd is a life long relationship, and as with any relationship, it grows stronger every day as long as you remain in the relationship, not ignoring Him and what He is showing you about yourself and your relationship with Him. He know you better than you know yourself and is patient with all of us. Your conscience is a tool within us, used to warn us of wrongs. The question is, by what standards is your conscience working from? What is your measuring stick you use to determine what is right and what is wrong? Those who are His use scripture and learn to listen to the very quiet voice as He nudges us when we are in an area unfamiliar to the standards, or unsure of what to do. You conscience is not the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will convict us of sin through our conscience. John 16:5-15 But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. You are correct in saying that the Holy Spirit cannot live in the same temple as a demon. Yet, every demon is subject to the authority of GOd, and if it is the desire of the person to be His child, God will clean the temple of any demonic entity and the Holy Spirit will enter. Have you read Luke 11:24-26 and understood what is being said? Notice the verses before, where Jesus is discussing casting our a demon. Now, in the verses below, notice that the house was swept and in order. This is the condition of someone who has been cleaned of a demon, but the house was still empty as the one cleaned did not invite the God to enter in. If the person had done so, then the house would not of been empty for the demons to re-enter. So, if someone who is set free from demons reject His salvation, they will then be worst off then before. Luke 11:24-26 When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
  2. @thomas t Have you listened to Ravi Zacharias yet? He tackles the questions you have. He also has YouTube videos that are very informative. Check his ministry out and gain the insights you are looking for.
  3. May I suggest you read Acts and watch how the people received the Holy Spirit. Those who never heard of the Holy Spirit never received Him until they were told about Him. They didn't have bible back then, so word of mouth was the only way to gain understanding. They did not have because they did not know. Same could be said today about those who do not have ... but notice that those who did receive, they had to accept and believe first. Just like salvation, God will not give anyone who does not believe the Holy Spirit either.
  4. Some of the pictures you show are displaying turn or burn signs. Those preachers are what I call hard hitters, bringing about the message of hell fire instead of getting to know the people and what their needs are. I prefer the latter when talking to people about God, but God may of sent them to do what they are doing knowing that there would be one person in their audience that needed to hear what they are preaching.
  5. Some do, some don't. It all depends on how the truth is spoken. I see more of God being glorified when you can meet the needs of everyday life for others than I do from hard hitting preaching. Still, who is to say if some of the hard hitters are not reaching one person who needed to hear the message? I surely can't.
  6. There is a forum called soapbox debate for debates. It is well monitored and only those who are in the debate are allowed to post, or an administrator when needed. I suggest you connect with an admin to set this up. Otherwise there is no telling who will post what in the middle of a debate ...
  7. Out my front door is a brick walkway, leading to the sidewalk. Then the street. Across the street is a strip of grass, some bushes, and a large stone wall, holding back a hill full of trees. On top of the hill is a cemetery. The south side of the house, which is where my bedroom window looks, is a view of a ski area and two ski jumps ... which I like much better!
  8. You can't. May I ask why you need it to be bold? Remember, all caps is like screaming at the reader ... not a good idea, in all honesty.
  9. Oh, so you were just paraphrasing? John 5:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
  10. Just curious what version of the bible you are using and what verse that is. The closest I come to what you posted in the NJKV is John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
  11. Are you saying that Grubb is not a false teacher or that he is. You sound like you support him.
  12. Jesus came as a lamb for the slaughter. Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. and Acts 8:32 He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
  13. I hardly ever say something like this, but that dude looks demonic. I wonder how many spirits live in this man?
