June 16, 2019 / By Carnation Question:
I'm a Muslim and Prepare for the battle ! :)
Hi, my dear Christians ..
No battle here, it is a joke ..
And it is a peaceful challenging, no more ..
Let's start this challenging ..
Jesus Christ peace be upon him says, John ( 16:12,13)
(( I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now..
Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come )) ..
You believe that this prophecy speaks about the Holy Ghost, don't you?
Now the question is,
What are these things that Jesus Christ couldn't tell you but the holy ghost could?
I would like to know what are these things that you learned from the holy ghost ?
And remember, my dear Christians,
Jesus Christ said ( many things ) ..
My mother tongue isn't English, but I translated the word ( many ) from English to my mother tongue, I realized that it doesn't mean one, nor two, even much much more than three ..
So, could you please tell me,
What are these things?
Ok, I am sorry,
What are the things the Jesus didn't tell you but the holy ghost did?
The question, my dear Christians ..
Focus on the question ..
You didn't answer the question ..

Ibrahim. my friend-
Romans 8:14 and Galatians 5:18 are key verses in understanding the Spirit of Truth. But start with John 14:15-17, since these verses introduce us, as it were, to the Spirit of Truth "You know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you." This is, indeed, overwhelming for many to understand. John 16:14 states "He (the Holy Spirit) will glorify Me (Jesus Christ), for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you." For brevity I am skipping all the equally important verses in between in order to highlight key verses, but please read all verses for context. There is no other experience like accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! The simultaneous indwelling of the Holy Spirit is what Christians describe in their testimonies: who I was before Christ in my life; how I met Christ; and how my life has changed since Jesus came into my liufe and the Holy Spirit dwells within me.
Now to answer your question. Romans 8:1 (whole chapter) fully expains what life in the Spirit is. Verse 1 states "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do." The verses that follow these statements show that indwelling sin is overcome through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit; and then ten references to the power of the Holy Spirit follow in verses 4-11. When Christians live in the Spirit, when we live according to the Holy Spirit within us, we are no longer captive to the sins of the flesh and therefore should live by the Holy Spirit within us. This reality can be very surpising to the new believer. I myself immediately stopped all my sin by drugs and alcohol, and stopping the use of these was surprisingly simple- I just stopped! All praise and glory to Father God, Who dwells within me as the Spirit. "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God." (v14)
Finally, read Galatians 5:16-26, stopping at v16 and 18: "But I say walk by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh" and "But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law." The law could not solve humanity's problem because sin employs the law for its own purpose. Consider ritual washing. If not performed in a certain way, the person sins. And then washing occurs on the outside of the body while the heart and mind really are the ones in need of 'washing'. Then you have interpreters of the law who disagree on its implementation, causing sin to emerge in the diversity of the resulting practices by the believers. Or those who, although regenerate, are set by sinful disires anyway. John 14:15-30 explains the relationship of Father God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I hope this helped a little-

Originally Answered: How do Christians answer this prophecy from God?
Christianity was perverted very early on. In fact, the Apostle Paul said the spirit of antichrist was already among them.
Jesus himself said,
"when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" Luke 18:8
My dear Muslim, I somehow sense that you are an exception to the rule that all Muslims are radicals who are fighting a Jihad against the rest of us, whom they feel are infidels. I sense that if we met, we actually might become friends because you seem so rational, something that I have never considered before. One time I met a girl who married a Muslim, but he made it a point that he would NEVER meet me face-to-face, for some reason. When ever I was invited over to their house, it was by his wife, whom I knew from the cafe where she worked as a waitress--he remained out of sight in another part of the house. She was helping me with a relationship with another waitress, so she and I were merely friends, nothing more. It seems you have gotten many answers i agree with, so I won't add any to them. I do hope you "see the light" sometime and convert to Christianity like a lot of your fellow Muslims are doing. Then we could really be friends. God (Jehovah, OR Allah, which ever you prefer) bless, and good day.

He was not speaking of things He couldn't tell "us." He was speaking of things He couldn't tell His apostles because they could not handle that information then. They would learn from the Holy Spirit later.
In most scriptures, there are two messages. The first is the person actually being spoken to. In this case, it was the apostles. The other message is to the reader, that's called the universal message. It's not always the same.

Christians believe in one God who exists in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Father is fully God, the Son is fully God, and the Holy Spirit is fully God. There is one God. Just because the Holy Spirit would later teach the disciples does not mean that Jesus didn't know everything, it just means that God wanted His Holy Spirit to teach the disciples certain things at a later time, when the time was right for them to hear. I recommend watching my video: "Who Is God?" by going to my youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/James5877?feature=mhee

From what I can see is that:
Jesus Christ our Messiah was revealing that they are not ready to hear everything from him yet, but in time once the spirit gradually moves upon them and enlightens them the truth that is revealed will be clearly understood at such time and not waisted on deaf ears..

No one said that Jesus "couldn't" tell us.
When Jesus says he has many things left to tell but can't, it implies he ran out of time.
(So, I think the idea is, if you're going to throw down the gauntlet, it's a bad idea to follow up with such a lame and pointless question.)

Originally Answered: Questions that Christians cant answer?
1) Most educated Christians do not accept the creation account as a de facto historical event, but as a sublime mythos illustrating man's search for meaning and alluding to his ultimate sprititual destiny.
2) Christ merely uses the traditional rabbinic hyperbole in his parables to illustrate a point: here, namely, that those who meet a message of love and redemption with open hostility do so at their own expense; the title "Prince of Peace" is a traditional honorific adapted from a prophecy from Isaiah.
3) Sarcasm aside, the Old Testament illustrates again and again a primitive--but ever-evolving--group's limited understanding of the Universe and their search for meaning in events; to them, morality and true fidelity to their religious ideals had a very real impact on the events of the cosmos and played out, for better or for worse, in their lives; obviously these concepts progressed (the Book of Job and Christ in various gospels give example of this).
4) Evidence? To a people searching for evidence and miraculous causation, I suppose ANYTHING could potentially be interpreted as a divine confirmation. But what evidence is there for these ancient deities which the people found so persuasive? Their adoration was more a culturally infused matter than an empirically justified one.
5) They don't; most say that the particularities of the ritual law (ritual purification/cleansing, abstaining from pork, circumcision *cringe* etc.) are no longer binding (the First Council of Jerusalem, recorded in Acts, affirms this). Christ, inasmuch as he has substantiated man's experiences, has redeemed him. By virtue of mystical identification with him, the Christian participates in the perfection of Christ through his love and self-sacrifice. Thus, the moral aspects of the law still constitute a very real guide for Christians (the Ten Commandments included), but the spirit of the law is emphasized over the letter, a message presented arguably by both Christ himself and St. Paul as well.
6) The Old Testament, with all its imperfections in tact, presents an honest picture of a people struggling to survive and advance in the world just like everyone else; obviously, in the post-Exilic period (when the Torah was most likely compiled), the Jews saw it fit to interpret their history in light of their traditions and religious ideology. Remember that life in ancient times was pretty and civilized for no one. Our own ancestors were no better. Ultimately, what the writers were trying to affirm here was most likely not the warlike nature of their god, but, rather, his genuine concern for the spiritual well-being of his people. The Jews had come to regard their god as the "high-god," not merely as a national or tribal patron, but as the singular divine entity underlying all reality, manifested in the world around them, and so to please him and adore him in truth and sincerity was everything. Hence, the admittedly excessive zeal of the ancient Israelites--at least in their popular piety stories, anyway--against the pagan peoples around them.
To say that the Christian scriptures are automatically invalidated by their more 'ignoble' contents--in spite of the sublimity which mingles alongside it--is like saying the Vedas have no spiritual or poetic value because they at times support the caste system. Yet supplementary works (like the Bhagavad-Gita, for instance) and other traditions exist which clearly absolve the "illumined seers" from some of the Vedic rigidity. Likewise, Christianity has its own traditions and almost two thousand years of self-reflection to supplement otherwise a-contexual readings. It has evolved as a distinct entity, and like in Nature, this type of evolution too entails speciation: sometimes the end result looks drastically different than what it began as.
As a gay Catholic, I know the value of my religious heritage while simultaneously acknowledging its shortcomings and the vital role of individual conscience. As a healthy skeptic, likewise you should be able to examine various religious texts free of presumption long enough to perceive their poetic value and archetypal truths. We do not ridicule mythology for its occasionally brutish flavor. Well, all religions have their "mythos." Read accordingly--but also openly.
Hope this helps.
