Whether Subjects are Bound to Obey their Superiors in all Things?
You are witnesses of these things.
"When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father--the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father--he will testify about me.
It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements:
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
