Conviction By The Spirit

For years I thought conviction by the Spirit (for the Church, Believers) was for some and not for others on particular matters. I have said that out of my own mouth. Shame on me!

How merciful is He—patient and silent in our foolish ignorance. Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth and when He abides in you -- taking residence -- the truth that Jesus preached is front and center in our thinking. Our scales are removed and worldly perspective is exposed and the truth pertaining to the full Gospel is revealed.

Common mistakes where deceit can cloud our vision/revelation, which the Bible says we will perish because of it:

Believing that the Bible is inspired and fallible.
Believing that Almighty God only loves and is not a God who would bring judgment.
Believing that continual willful sin is okay.
Believing that He tolerates wickedness.
