    Edj.

    It seems that you did not understand my explanation.

    Jesus has given up his spirit of fleshly desires.

    This means that Jesus spirit is of the Father.

     A man either follow his own spirit or follow God’s spirit which is Holy and true.

    To follow man’s spirit leads to sin; and when sin is completed the fruits is death.

     

    wakeup.

    Hi Wakeup,

    Would you say Jesus’ spirit is like ours or like God’s HolySpirit?

    Hi WU
    “To follow man’s spirit leads to sin; and when sin is completed the fruits is death.”
    That is an interesting ADDITION to scripture

    Nick,

    It could be an addition to Scripture which speaks of a human believer’s spirit testifying with God’s spirit but Scripture also uses man to be godless humans. Like always, then intent gives meaning to the letter.

    Hi KW,
    Do you think Rom 8 is an addition?
    Scripture does not say the spirit of man is evil-it is given of God.

    Nick,

    I think that the spirit of man without God is godless even though it given by God. I do not believe God gave the spirit to each human so he could live without him. Instead I believe men sought out other Gods and so separated themselves from God. When Paul writes of men whose spirit bears witness with the Holy Spirit he is speaking to those who have come to God through faith in Jesus Christ. Such a human is not longer a mere man not is their spirit a mere man’s.

    Hi KW,
    The spirit is godless?
    The spirit given to men is not the Holy Spirit but only gives him limited life.
    Those who are blessed by the gift of the Holy Spirit are still mere men with a human spirit too as the apostles show.

    Nick,

    A human is either with God or without God. A human without God still has a human spirit but it does not testify with the Holy Spirit. In that way it is godless. It is written that man was created upright but went in search of many schemes.

    Are you speaking of the breath or the spirit that men live by? When the spirit men live by and the fruit of the Holy Spirit are united then a the mans bears testimony with the Holy Spirit that he is a son of God. The breath gives life to the body and may also be the soul.

    Hi KW,
    Yes a man is reborn from above and has already passed into eternal life
    or he is not and utterly dependant on the mercy of God unto salvation in the judgement.

    Kerwin…….”All who (truly) believe on me have “PASSED” (pass tense) from judgment unto life”, Jesus told us.

    HIkw,

    WITH God or WITHOUT God?

    God is close to all men.

    But few are filled with His Spirit.

    Fewer still are led by His Spirit to become His children

    Gene,

    Kerwin…….”All who (truly) believe on me have “PASSED” (pass tense) from judgment unto life”, Jesus told us.

    John 5:24Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

    24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    It is not quite so simple as the whole sentence has a mixture of tenses. Some would interpret it that a person is saved by faith, even without works, but James vehemently disagreed as he said faith without works is dead.

    A man declares he loves his girlfriend but then abused her. Does he truly love her?

    I am not sure what you mean by close. He is not spiritually close as the sins of men separate them from God. The rest sounds correct.

    That is one of the verses I was thinking of but there is another one that states our sins separate us from him. It is Isaiah 59:2.
