comment Do Protestants believe that the Holy Spirit stopped leading the church?
You're really twisting things. What does asking others to pray for us have to do with the Holy Spirit working through each of us? Of course we should follow the biblical example of asking people to pray for us. However, we should not think that we have to have a priest or pastor to mediate for us. We all have access by faith to the throne of God through no other mediator than Jesus Christ Himself.

As Paul wrote, there is one Mediator between God and man, and that is Jesus Christ. We do not need someone else, priest or pastor, to go to God on our behalf. We all have direct access to God. No, we shouldn't trust our own judgment. We should trust God's judgment. He wrote a book, you know.

You should phrase this question in way that does not appear disparaging.

comment Do Protestants believe that the Holy Spirit stopped leading the church?
Protestants believe that the Holy Spirit can lead any and all believers--not just the leaders of the church. Additionally, being a leader of a church does not mean the Holy Spirit will lead that person--or that the leader will follow that leading. God does not restrict His influence to select classes of people. There is now neither Jew nor Greek. The Holy Spirit indwells all believers.

comment Why did Christians kill other Christians during World War One?
False premise. Have JW's ever envied one another? Gotten angry with one another? Mistreated one another? Lusted after another's wife? Yep... so, that means they aren't loving, and there are not Christians anywhere. Faulty logic in your question.

comment Why are some of the Psalms written by authors other than David?
Why would anyone expect all the psalms in the Jewish hymnal to be written by a single person? That would mean they would have had nothing to sing prior to David, but Moses wrote some, or at least recorded some.

comment Do Christians consider psychic healing to be a non-Christian act?
Welcome to the site. Unfortunately, we don't give advice in this forum. As such, this question is not a good fit. I would say, though, that your beliefs directly contradict the Christian faith. Your truth claims that every good God is acceptable means that the Christian claim must be false. Inclusiveness is in itself intolerant, as its truth claims mandate that the truth claims of others are false. Inclusiveness is a nice idea, but we should not believe something just because it sounds good, but because it is actually true.

comment Do Christian concepts of fellowship allow for a congregation to welcome atheists to participate in their community?
@Con7e Why would the default mode be atheism? Atheism does believe something very specific. Agnosticism would be more appropriate.

It seems, however, that you do embrace a creed, specifically the atheistic creed that there is no God. I would wonder what evidence you found that convinced you of this ideology/philosophy.
