    Have just noticed someone has started a Holy Spirit thread....

    I have a story to tell but I cannot post in that thread as it is in the Christianity DIR and I no longer identify as a Christian

    This is my testimony:

    I was doing the Alpha Course at a happy-clappy church where I later got baptised

    The subject of that evening's session was The Holy Spirit

    We ended up doing an exercise in faith healing, so everyone broke up into separate groups to do a laying-on of hands

    One young who was in my group wanted to become a stronger individual as he was unhappy with himself and considered himself weak-willed, he wanted to develop more character

    So me and two other guys laid our hands upon his shoulders and tried to invoke the Holy Spirit to come upon him and give him strength

    When it was my turn, something extraordinary happened:

    I had a sudden and bizarre outpouring of fluent speech, it was really peculiar, I came up with loads of religious stuff and it just flowed from me, it was amazing, I did it without thinking it was almost automatic, I felt as though I was a channel, that I was channelling the Holy Spirit

    After I'd finished everyone in the group went "WOW!" and we reported what had happened once everyone came back together from their break-away groups

    Such a thing had never happened before and has never happened since

    At the time we attributed it to The Holy Spirit, as did I

    But now I'm a bit more dubious, maybe it was religious hysteria?

    Or maybe it was The Simulation taking over me?

    But I don't really at this moment believe in The Holy Spirt right now - or perhaps I should considering I've personally experienced it???

    But was it for my benefit or for his? Or for both our benefit? Or for the benefit of the whole group? I do not know.

    I don't know, but I will always remember it as an outstanding spiritual experience
