This is correct. As free spirits, we will always still have power to speak as we wish (1 Corinthians 14:32). Thought I'd better make myself clear on that one. Good point, Cturtle.The Holy Spirit does not control our tongues or our speech, that is something that we need to submit to Him, and even then we still have the choice to listen and obey or not. The only one who is controlling people is the enemy.
