Charles Plourd lives in the central region of the United States. He enjoys spending time with friends and family, while studying Christian theology, as well as analyzing the beliefs of cults, secret societies, and other religions. Charles is self-described as an individual with an uncommon and unorthodox past, in terms of his life experiences and the circumstances which led him to faith in Jesus Christ.
Taught by the Holy Spirit addresses the reasons that mainstream Christianity today is often filled with teachers and preachers who are clearly teaching strange new ideas and doctrines, but still have an unquestioning and loyal following. Some people even feel as if these popular Bible "teachers" are the ultimate source of spiritual truth. Having been associated with a cult teaching before beginning a relationship with Jesus, Charles candidly recounts his experience for his readers using scripture and simple reasoning to analyze why it was possible for him to have fallen victim to the deceptions which he was once influenced by and how he was ultimately set free from those deceptions and lies.
You will be both encouraged and challenged as Charles points out the often little-known or largely-unread portions of God's Word which clearly tell us what God has to say in regards to how you can know if you are truly saved, how the Holy Spirit assures the Christian of this fact in a personal relationship, and how the Holy Spirit personally teaches doctrine to the Christian so that he or she can correctly understand and interpret the Bible according to God's standards.
In Taught by the Holy Spirit, Charles also addresses how any Christian can employ useful methods of interpretation such as proper Biblical Exegesis, Biblical Hermeneutics, and Contextual Interpretation. Finally, Charles will show you how these methods can all be used in association with the spiritual insights given to the Christian by the Holy Spirit as discussed by the Apostle Paul in his 1st letter to the Corinthian church.
