// i really wish the church would stop trying to be the holy spirit for everyone else. speak the good news and love people the way Jesus does. stop trying to "convict" people - that's the holy spirit's job.

stop trying to push your personal convictions on others. when you do so, you cause division in the body. you are convicted about certain things that others aren't convicted of due to your own personal calling. Agree on the specific things that Jesus says to agree on. all other convictions are personal convictions. we all have different purposes (read Ephesians). what good would a hand be if it demanded to see like an eye sees? stop creating new denominations out of a personal conviction! THAT DIVIDES US! A house divided will fall. We all have different callings and yet the Lord tells us to be unified. just like a marriage, a woman is wired differently than her husband and yet God placed them together... work it out! “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me." (- Jesus) Ephesians 17:20-23. Jesus, The holy Spirit & God are three separate but also one.

don't stir up strife in the body simply because you think your personal conviction is the ultimate say.
