Trinitarian. The Christian doctrine of the Trinity boldly declares the equality of the Three Persons and the right of the Holy Spirit to be worshipped and glorified. Anything less than this is something less than Trinitarianism. The Pursuit of Man, 60-61 by A.W. Tozer
These words of wisdom from Tozer are probably one of most crucial aspect that is ignored in order to walk a true path with Christ. The entire subject matter concerning the need to be empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit is too often ignored. There are well-intended Christians who preach and teach varying doctrines (as they interpret the word of God) who fail to trust in Holy Spirit confirmation. Even the most educated and studious teacher-preacher-evangelist-minister who claims to follow Christ seldom sits back before or after studying the word of God and pray seeking Holy Spirit confirmation, and then (unwittingly or purposefully) writing or commenting on what they have read or studied. In their haste and enthusiasm to share what they believe is new found truth, they oftentimes rush to publish their views without first consulting the Holy Spirit. Unlike many dedicated scholars who go as far as sharing their information with other scholars to get their opinion, and then take those findings to the Holy Spirit for confirmation, independent prophets rush to publish rather than being open to advice from other like-minded disciples.
Sadly, there are many ersatz prophets who actually claim they received esoteric visions and data from God that supports a unique doctrinal position that (if examined carefully) would not pass canonical muster. Therefore, it behooves ALL folks to be willing to share and compare (not debate and argue) information they may have gleaned from the Bible to test its veracity. Most of the time, this may include deep study into the exact meaning of certain words in scripture, and also comparing those words with how they may be used in other verses. For example, the Greek word topos is rendered as room, place, opportunity, condition, and license to describe a position or condition which a person occupies. A case in point, in describing what a particular person means to me, I can say, I have a special place in my heart for Mary or Joseph. This doesn’t mean that Mary or Joseph can actually and physically occupy their total persona inside my heart, but from a conditional perspective, they been afforded an opportunity, or have the license to be part of my life.
This same word topos is used in John 14:2 where Jesus said, In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place (topos) for you. Many people interpret the word place here to mean a room, an abode, a mansion, a chamber, a house or a castle, when in reality Jesus is stating He is currently preparing a positional status for us in His kingdom, according to our accomplishments in His service.
