Ah back to your puny localised deity who could not do anything without being near and who half enters an unregenerate person (even though the sinner is a God hating rebel, a sin lover, estranged from the thrice holy God and hellbound) and then manages to squeeze the rest himself in after the sinner believes; presumably depending on how thin or fat he is.
What sort of god do you worship who can be remote from anything? Certainly not the God of the Bible!
You call yourself reformed, you pathetic miscreant?! Go read Charnock on the attributes to get a worthy conception of the God of the Bible. God has given you a few grey cells between your ears to use. Save them from complete atrophy by using them.

Every believer is indwelt by the Spirit. That is all that this verse says. What is there in it NOT to believe?

What is it when one makes assertions for which no evidence can be produced? Yes, that's right A LIE. What does that make you?
BB wrote: Paul teaches ..Here it is again. Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness..... See many other refs which I have posted below.
This is a passage addressed to Christians viz. those who are already indwelt. Where in the passage does it say anything about the unregenerate being indwelt to bring them to faith?
See! Just another devilish LIE! Adding to scripture ! Who is your daddy?
