Assumptions at Pentecost
Written by John on Monday 28/05/07
It's Pentecost and inevitably talk turns to talk about the Holy Spirit (rightly so). Over the past few weeks I've heard some teaching on the Holy Spirit, read some books and had several discussions. I have detected that most people (including myself) make assumptions about the Holy Spirit without really checking out the scriptures or thinking things through well. I've listed some of the assumptions I've detected. I'm uncomfortable with most of them (at least without them being qualified in some reasonable way), and I believe some are simply false and misleading.
