Not following the Spirit of God? Romans 8:14 ;
Ignoring the Spirit of Truth? John 16:13 ;
Not having the signs of a believer? Mark 16:17-18 ;
Not having the fruit of the Spirit? Galatians 5:22-25 ;
Transforming our thought life ;
Want a spiritual relationship? Read the bible even more;
The Word is the Way to the Father who is SPIRIT! ;
The spirit lights upon the word;
Hebrew Letters and their deep meaning;

Do we have an "I" Problem?

Dedad used to tell me that people had an "I" problem when I was a kid. I thought they had a vision problem or something.
It turns out, he meant they talked about and focused on themselves a lot.

Look at the character of satan. He says "I will" five times in Isaiah 14. Contrast this with Jesus. Jesus said "not my will, but thine, be done" on the way to the cross. (Luke 22:42).

If we are focusing on ourselves and talking about ourselves a lot, maybe we have an "I" problem that we need to deal with.

Apostates claim Science as their Reason for Falling Away

How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
Jude 1:18-21 (KJV)

Notice these mockers don't have the spirit. They are 'sensual'. Many alleged apostates are supposedly 'Falling Away' from the faith are claiming science as their fundamental reason.
Science is based on empirical data that can be quantified or qualified. Science is 'sensual' or 'of the senses'. Science needs to measure something before it can believe. Sciences bases things on observation (sight) or the other 'senses' like feel, taste, touch, or sound.

Science IGNORES the spirit entirely.

Jude intimates that these mockers never had a spiritual relationship with the biblical Jesus in the first place. Next Jude tells us to build up our Most Holy Faith praying in the Holy Spirit.
Contrary to what the scientists and cessationists say, Christianity is a Supernatural, Spiritual relationship with our Creator.
