Will the Holy Spirit abandon a believer
Posted by chris on Monday, August 28 10:15 pm
I recently heard a story while attending a small meeting at a local church. The group leader mentioned that Benny Hinn had once interviewed a woman who claimed the Holy Spirit left her body. She said she had gone to a bar to drink, even after the Holy Spirit had convicted her. She said when she sat down at the bar, she physically felt Him leave her body. The story terrified me. I know the Holy Spirit would come and go in the Old Testament, but do you think the Holy Spirit would leave a back-sliden christian today? Do you think the "enemy" could imitate that physical experience to cause the person to doubt their eternal security. Will God or His Spirit ever give up on one of his children? Has anyone heard this story or anything similar?
