"A" is a Christian. However, he believes that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit (e.g., miracle of rising from the dead) were only in the New Testament as a sign to the Jews and are no longer in operation today. Please pray that God opens "A's" spiritual eyes and understanding that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit are in operation today. For example, in China, I have read of a Christian praying and raising people from the dead. It does not happen everywhere and not all the time but it does happen and I believe it. There are several other secondary issues (not essential to salvation) that "A" and I differ in our interpretations. Pray that God will give both of us the right understanding of the Bible in these matters as well and that we are able to clearly communicate God's truths with wisdom, clarity and boldness. Thanks.
