Pneumatology: Doctrine of the Holy Spirit Pneumatology: Doctrine of the Holy Spirit 1. What Does the Holy Spirit Do? The function of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament age is well known and several books have been written on the subject. The evidence that spiritual renewal, or regeneration, was true of such Old Testament people lies mainly in two directions. Wood also writes that regeneration, indwelling, sealing, filling, and empowering all occurred prior to Pentecost. While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. They answered, "No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit." So Paul asked, "Then what baptism did you receive?" "John's baptism," they replied. Paul said, "John's baptism was a baptism of repentance.

Anamnēsis Is there such a thing as an esoteric Christianity, or did Christ overcome and abolish all such distinctions? It seems to me the answer to your question is … yes! While it is true that in Christ “the middle wall of partition” has been “broken down” (Ephesians 2:14), St Paul continues to “speak wisdom only among them that are perfect” (1 Corinthians 2:6). Even though “there is neither Jew nor Greek … neither bond nor free … neither male nor female” (Galatians 3:28), the deacon still cries out, “The doors! Much could be said about the eso-exoteric, or exo-esoteric, nature of Christianity, but a good place to begin is with the Sermon on the Mount, and a good way to begin this beginning is to compare the opening verse of the Sermon with the penultimate verse: that is, Matthew 5:1 and Matthew 7:28.

The Christianity Map Check out this map of the geography of Christianity in the United States. It’s one of a series of mind-blowing maps prepared by the brilliant cartographers behind the site FloatingSheep. The geographic pattern is striking. “Catholics are most visible in much of the Northeast and Canada, with Lutherans taking the Midwest, Baptists the Southeast, and Mormons unsurprisingly taking much of the mountain states. Methodists, interestingly, seem to primarily be most visible in a thin red line between the Southern Baptists and everyone else.” Now check out their map of Christianity in Europe, where they note the “fascinating split between Orthodox Eastern Europe, Protestant Germany, and Catholic everywhere else.” And, bringing it all together, here’s their map of Christians around the world.

Resist not evil: if a man smite thee on one cheek, turn to him the other also (Matt. 5:30-40). Avenge not yourselves: rather give place unto wrath: and suffer yourselves to be defrauded (Rom. 12:18, 19).
