I’ve never paid too much attention to those banners at the top of the page before, but just realized this morning that it has two offers for Narnia stuff.  So does that thing actually pick out words in my post and post related links to entice me?  If so, that’s just a wee bit Big-Brother-ish.


I wanted to write about our sermon yesterday on the baptism of the Holy Spirit, but I wandered around online too long and am out of time.  I’m wondering how all of you see it.  Is HS baptism something that happens at the time a person is born again, or is it a separate event that one must seek after conversion?  And is there a visible manifestation of it?  Will people around you know when it has occurred?  Do we know ourselves?

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

  1. Consider in Acts all those who were baptized and joined themselves to the body, but did not receive the baptism of the spirit until later.  Their conversion obviously preceded their reception of the Holy Spirit.  Could it be said that it came after they were “born again”?  Or is the reception of it the definition of “being born again”?  There seems to be a separation, but could they happen simultaneously?
