The Holy Spirit – Stephen Bohr

If you have been near facebook in the last 2 years, you will have noticed a number of conservative adventists converting to the “2 person Godhead” view, where Christ is thought to be a created being, and the Holy Spirit is not a distinct being.  Sadly many interactions with these converts end up fruitless for anyone involved in the “discussion”, as it is considered by many to be a salvational issue, and a determination of the church being Babylon.

I personally believe the topic is not that relevant practically, other than the fact that this belief seems to be very divisive.  In this sermon Stephen Bohr shows why the bible and EGW support what we now call the Trinitarian view (though “3 Person God head” woudl possibly be a more accurate name), even though many of the Adventist pioneers of the early church supported other views.  Far from being an argumentative sermon, he shows some amazing faith building truths that show the power we have available through the Holy Spirit.

Outstanding series of videos on how the brain works, and how the bible was way ahead of science in many things that we are only learning today, including Neuroplasticity,  Epigenetics and many other areas of molecular brain function.  The first in the series is on a practical use of these techniques, and then further shows the science as to how it all happens.

No. Is it important then to get through to people? What is the point of our existence other than to teach people truth so that we can all be changed by it and go home?
