This blog gains its name from the book Steele's Answers published in 1912. It began as an effort to blog through that book, posting each of the Questions and Answers in the book in the order in which they appeared. I started this on Dec. 10, 2011. I completed blogging from that book on July 11, 2015. Along the way, I began to also post snippets from Dr. Steele's other writings — and from some other holiness writers of his times. Since then, I have begun adding material from his Bible commentaries. I also re-blog many of the old posts.

The Spirit Bears Witness With Our Spirit
QUESTION: In Rom. 8:16 is it not more correct to say the Spirit bears witness to our spirit instead of with our spirit?
ANSWER: The Greek says "with," there being two concurring witnesses, our consciousness and the Spirit of God. This makes the certainty as strong as God can make it.
