Telephone call with Matt Slick of Carm.org

2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth.

We are Christians. We only love.

Telephone conversation with Matt Slick of Carm.org

Matt: Is Holy Spirit a person?

God may express himself any way that He wants to by means of The Holy Spirit. When you feel God’s love, and you know you have during prayer, that is God’s Spirit upon you. Matt Slick of Carm.org does not agree.

Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”

Luke 4:18,19 “the Lord’s spirit is upon me, because he anointed me to declare good news to the poor. He sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and a recovery of sight to the blind, to send the crushed ones away free, 19 to preach the Lord’s acceptable year.”

Note the word upon is used.

When the scriptures say they were “filled with Holy Spirit” it is the Merriam-Webster definition of filled: “supplied with a full compliment”.

There are individuals in all religions who love God, love Jesus Christ and appreciate His sacrifice. God calls these ones, “my people”. Revelation 18:4

Matt would like to say I subscribe to a particular religion or that I’m starting a cult. I’m just a person, hopefully one who God would consider one of “His people”.

Our Father in Heaven, please send Matt Your Spirit and show Him you do love Him very much. He wants to please you Father, and he must love you to do so much about you. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Yes, there are many spiritual people God loves. It is very encouraging. None who love Him will be lost.

God’s holy spirit is sent. It is not umbilical (not connected to people) It is located behind the brain, between the brain and the mind but not touching the body. It actuates the mind.

The body is designed in such a way that Holy Spirit is not active during private or intimate moments. Humans have a second set of nerves, one reason being to experience romantic love in complete privacy uninhibited. (God is not watching)

Matt’s questions are normal.

Matt: Do you have to be baptized to be saved?

As per one of Matt’s many questions, the person next to Jesus on a cross did not have the opportunity to be baptized yet Jesus said he would be saved.

1 Peter 3:21 And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you—not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, (NRSV New Revised Standard Version)

So, yes, one should be baptized by immersion following the example of the Lord. But if at the moment of death one exercises faith without being baptized, they will be saved.

God is not unreasonable. If you can’t be baptized for some reason but want to, Our Father understands.

2 Corinthians 8:12 For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has—not according to what one does not have

Matt: Jesus’ resurrected human body and His body in Heaven.

Colossians 2:9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

1 Corinthians 15:50 What I am saying, brothers and sisters, is this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

So, Jesus could not be a human in Heaven, the scripture makes it clear. He is glorified with the body He had in Heaven before coming to the Earth.

1 Corinthians 15:44 It is sown a physical body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body.

John 17:5 So now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had in your presence before the world existed.

Matt hung up at this point.
