Tip of the Day, April 5
April 5 – Acts 8:14-7; “Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.”
It’s rather ironic the Church would bless its members with the gift of the Holy Ghost. They don’t believe He can be in more than one place at a time. In the book Articles of Faith, pg. 160 it says; “Plainly, such expressions as being filled with the Holy Ghost, and His falling upon person, have reference to the powers and influences that emanate from God, and which are characteristic of Him; for the Holy Ghost may in this way operate simultaneously upon many persons even though they be widely separated, whereas the actual person of the Holy Ghost cannot be in more than one place at a time”.
Point 8. “The true church must bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands. Acts 8:14-7.”
Since you teach that I cannot do anything to help in my salvation and I must wait for God to choose me to be saved, why do you say I must do the works necessary to be your type of Christian?
What does being an unsaved Christian of your type get me that being a Mormon doesn’t; isn’t being a Mormon as good as anything else , since you say none of my works do me any good, no matter what I do?
