Several passages in the NT make it clear we are all guided by the same Holy Spirit as Christians. I expect differences from time to time, as this is a debate board. One of the positive things is that we grow and learn from others viewpoints. We cannot all be right. That is a process of spiritual maturity. One of the top reasons for being a Christian in day to day life, aside from our growth here on earth and eternal life after earth is to tell others about the Gospel. What puzzles me more than anything is why are the most hardened positions and the greatest divides on issues that do not make one bit of difference in salvation. All who have been here a while know the issues. KJVO, hatred of KJV (both are equally wrong), Calvinism vs free will (or the few that believe in a mix we do not understand), some end time issues, covenant vs dispy theology, and to a lesser degree, eternal security. As of late, the character of Calvin has been debated in several threads, one subject I am adamant about. So why with the same Holy Spirit, why are we so far apart and hardened the less important the issue? Any explanations are appreciated. The purpose of this thread is not to debate Calvin, KJVO, etc. There are plenty of threads to do that.
