May you have peace!
I have been directed by the Holy Spirit to bring something to your attention and ask you with regard to it:
Matthew 17:1-13 gives an account of the transfiguration of my Lord, when he was seen with Elijah and Moses... which was witnessed by Peter, James, and John. Luke 9:28-36 gives an account of the same event. If the Bible contains no error, and if Matthew and Lukes accounts are "scripture"... which means the writers were "borne along by the Holy Spirit" when they wrote... why, then, does Matthew's account occur "6 days" ... and Luke's account occur "about 8 days"... after Christ's statement that some of those standing with him at the time would "not taste death at all until they first [saw] the Son of Man coming in his kingdom?"
I am to ask you: IF the Holy Spirit guided and directed BOTH men, if BOTH men were indeed "borne along" by that SAME Spirit... how is it that they did not state the SAME period of time. Did not the SAME Holy Spirit know EXACTLY how many days passed between the two occurences? Why would the SAME Spirit give one man one time frame... and another a different time frame. Isn't such an indication of either uncertainty... or indecisiveness... on the part of the Spirit? If so... HOW CAN THAT BE? If not... how do YOU explain the difference... in light of YOUR belief that there is only ONE Holy Spirit... which Spirit is part of ONE God... which God also includes the Christ.
I am to await your response... and I am to ask that you give your OWN response... one from YOUR heart... and not a cut and paste from some "theological" dissertation... or "scholarly" publication... if you can.
I am also to bid you peace... which I certainly do.
A slave of Christ,
