Since The Holy Spirit is our helper the choices we make are fully and completely our own. We must therefore accept the consequences of the choices we make.

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor [ Helper] to be with you forever” (John 14:16).

The Greek word translated here “Counselor” means “one who is called alongside” and has the idea of someone who helps, encourages, exhorts, intercedes and comforts.
