Warning! Do not make the mistake of thinking you know everything. No one alive today knows everything. Please remain humble, willing and eager to learn from God's Word and others. God despises the proud. Everything you have, including gifts of the Holy Spirit, are gifts to you from God. We don't deserve anything God has given us. He gives gifts to us, including the air we breath, because he loves us and is gracious to us. I don't think anyone alive today has 100% correct doctrine. So please don't trash your Christian brother. Instead, speak the word as accurately as you can, but in the spirit of love and truth. Remember, it is far more important that the fruits of the Holy Spirit, like love and patience, flow from our hearts, than it is that we exhibit any miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit. 1st Corinthians chapter 13 and Galatians 5:22-23.
