How does the Holy Spirit teach truth to us?
As Christians, we hold the bible to be inspired by the Holy Spirit and to be the sole authority for determining our beliefs and practices. At the same time trusted Christian media sources report that biblical illiteracy is widespread among today’s church. (For example, see the 2010 article from Christianity Today.) Many Christians today believe this gap is filled by a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit who speaks to them directly without involving thorough scriptural consideration. But is this an accurate view of the role the Holy Spirit? Or does it reduce Christian teaching to a subjective, personal perception rather than verifiable, universal truth?
