What has caused so many people to become discouraged in the faith?
Which spirit has guided Christians to leave the Church?
Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would guide us into all truth. John 16.13
Is the Holy Spirit responsible for guiding so many Christians out of the Church?
Is He responsible for so many divisions, dissensions, slander and injustice within His House?
If the Spirit of God guides into all truth and the person leaves the church, then this church is a lie. Or the spirit guiding this person is a demon!
Intelligent faith shows that no Christian can be guided by the Spirit of God and the spirit of the devil at the same time! Either we are guided by God or by the devil!
Whoever is led by God, come what may, whatever trials or tribulations for the sake of the Lord, will never be discouraged or forsake the faith.
However, when he is guided by evil, he gives up. The seed sown by the wayside, in stony places and among the thorns is an example of this. Matthew 13.18-22
The last question is: Which spirit has been guiding you?
