God promised that under the New Covenant after one is Holy Spirit baptized (Acts 1:5;8) or
"Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah.
Not according to the [Old] Covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which My Covenant they did brake, although I was a husband unto them, saith the LORD.
But this shall be the Covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; AFTER THOSE DAYS [Acts 1:4-5; 8; 2:2-4], saith the LORD, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their GOD, and they shall be My people.
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 31:33-34).
"...He will not speak of Himself [ That's in Scriptures; John 5:39] but whatsoever He hear that shall He speak; and He will show you things to come" (John 16:13) as well.
Which was FULFILLED on the Day of Pentecost after Holy Spirit baptism (Acts 1:4-5; 8; 22).
"Until the day in which He was taken up, (((AFTER THAT))) He through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles [I Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11] whom He had chosen" (Acts 1:2) as He continues to do TODAY (Hebrews 13:8)!
We receive "the mind of Christ" (I Corinthians 2:16) after "joining to His Spirit" (I Corinthians 6:17) with Holy Spirit baptism (Acts 1:5;8) and become like Jesus
"I can do nothing by myself, I judge only as I HEAR [Acts 1:2]. And my judgment is just, because I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him that sent me" (John 5:30).
Therefore we have no "free will" if we obey His commandments [Acts 1:2] that He "puts in our hearts and minds" (Jeremiah 31:33-34; Hebrews 8:10-12; 10:16-17) under the New Covenant!
"For I come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Him that sent me" (John 6:38)!
"...the Words that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself; but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works" (John 14:10)!
Consequently if a today's Christian, doesn't follow Jesus PRECISELY as He gave the example when He walked the face of the earth and "receive commandments" DIRECTLY FROM GOD (Acts 1:2; Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10; 10:16);
They are (((NOT))) a TRUE Christian!

If that's true, then why is it that when you ask Christians from 12 denominations a question, you get 13 answers?
