In the thread "Do You Believe the Church Started At Pentecost" we find the use of a number of terms regarding the work of the Holy Spirit, some of which are said to refer to the same thing. So let's talk. In that thread, we read of baptism BY the Holy Spirit, IN the Holy Spirit, WITH the Holy Spirit, and being INDWELT by the Spirit. Then there's the FILLING with the Spirit. And, there's Peter's Pentecost Day sermon in which he said believers would RECEIVE the GIFT of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be BORN of the Spirit. So, are some of these terms referring to the same thing? What are the differences? Release the hounds!
