Where in the bible does it say all Christians will be given the gift of prophecy? Why do you suppose because you understand the scriptures in your own
way that you have the gift?
It does not say all Christians will be given the gift of prophecy but it does say this.
26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you,
and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it
has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:26-27
"But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of
a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the
spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God." (1 Corinthians 2:10)
"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I
have said to you." (John 14:26)
"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH ..." (JOHN 16:13)
2 Cor. 13:14, "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all."
That is good but if you keep seeking the truth you will find it. The truth might not be comfortable and cause strife. If you keep seeking you might be
able to overcome all the lies about the Catholic Church.
Personally I don’t believe in any denomination, I believe in the message in the bible and the Holy Spirit.
What about the people who provide brush aside the calls to repentance to fit in with modern philosophies? What about people who say you can live your
life any way you please and Christ will still bring you to heaven when He said that not all who call Him lord will go to heaven. Is it judgement to
state the truth?
2 Timothy 3:1-5
1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4
treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do
with such people.
No it is not judgment to state the truth. But let me make one thing clear when I say this. If your truth puts a certain weight to one man’s sin,
such as you will go to hell for that, then you are not speaking the truth you are judging. No man knows who is going to heaven or hell only God
knows. You do not know the secret lives of men. You do not know what is in a man’s heart. So to call a sin a sin is acceptable, just remember to
not add any weight to that sin.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to
