Morality and love are keys to the Christian belief: iLive

I LIKE Zama Ndlovu's linkage of Christianity to great values and moral standards ("Why I can't feel the Holy Spirit", December 18).

I am not suggesting that being an agnostic or atheist means low morals, but I appreciate the moral compass Christianity placed on us as black women and that there is a loving eye over our precious lives.

On the issue of the Holy Spirit, dear Zama, maybe, and only maybe, the reason you did not feel the Holy Spirit was that you expected Him in the confinement of the church.

Remember, He is omnipresent and cannot be locked in the church building or gathering.

He might be closer to you than you realise.

Secondly, the Holy Spirit is God Himself, he is not just a "feeling" you get but a relationship you have.

The presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives is something sacred to treasure.
