I am a Christian. Not an “elitist”. I am not someone who goes for just an emotional experience . There’s more to faith than that.I don’t make someone believe in my version of God. He stands alone ,and we are made in His Image and likeness. Not the other way around. That last part really makes people mad, because they are not able to control Him by their designs about divinity.
It requires a certain willingness to trust Him ,and put our trust in His ways which are far greater than ours. We as human beings think we are so smart ,and so untouchable, that we cannot be destroyed by greed,etc. Wrong!!!!!!
I don’t laud one gift of the Spirit over another, because God gives all a certain measure of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit to His Faithful.
