Default Re: Discernment of spirits

The problem with the "we need further tests" view is that 1 John 4:2-3, 1 Cor 12:3, 1 John 4:15 do not describe any further tests, nor do they say that these tests are not complete. It is only common sense that John or Paul would have said that the tests are not complete if they were.

I believe by people saying the tests are inadequate they mean that they are inadequate for testing the false notions constructed in Christianity about spirits. In Christianity they invent "spirits" or angels for everything, both good and bad, and then test them against criteria which is not found in the bible.

Regarding feelings, there are feelings from the natural man and there are feelings in the Spirit. "avoid your feelings" means avoid your fallen feelings, and "ask about their feeling" means ask about the feeling in the Spirit. For someone who understands the difference between the flesh and the spirit there can be no contradiction.
