What do Protestants believe in the matter of the Holy Spirit leading the church? Especially the Catholic church. The first mention of the catholic church was about the 1st. century.
Did the Holy Spirit stop working in apostles and others that time christian leaders? Did he start working again in people in 15 century? Was He quiet the whole time since the first century? In order to believe this, isn't this kind of against Jesus promise, that he will stay with us and he'll give us his Spirit?
Isn't this sinning against the Holy Spirit? Mark 3:29
so 2 questions: 1. Was HS gone during 1600 years? 2. Believing this, isn't it sinning against HS?
