Holy Spirit, st. paul, critical testing, meditation, ecclesiastical
Bible Study; Lecture; Sermon Prep
This passage speaks of two realities that seem to exclude each other: the Holy Spirit and critical testing. We ask: Is it not of the very essence of the Holy Spirit that, where He is at work, critical testing ceases? And again: Must not critical testing, if it is to be fruitful, exclude all prophetic inspirations?
