Romans 8:2 … through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
* makes them fit and ready to undertake the various tasks and offices * for the renewal and building up of the Church. * Judgment as to their genuinity and proper use belongs to those who are appointed leaders in the Church, to whose special competence it belongs, * not indeed to extinguish the Spirit, but * to test all things and hold fast to that which is good.//
==Chapter 5== *The counsels are a divine gift
* e.g by erection of an institute and the acceptance of its constitutions * //The hierarchy, following with docility the prompting of the Holy Spirit, accepts the rules presented by outstanding men and women and authentically approves these rules after further adjustments.
– Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good.1 Thess
… test … but do not quench….
