Watch yourself Jaybird. Our hearts are not a pure thing but are easily swayed and convinced by ourselves and by others. What we think is spiritual and good should be put under the test of the bible's authority. If it does not agree and is counter to the things we know and have read, then it can't be from God. It's not from the Holy Spirit. For instance where do we know any of the details of the wise men? We don't know if there were three men or an army of men with a convoy of camels to give gifts to the King of the Jews. All we know is that there were three gifts. But if God directs people He will direct them regardless of where they are or if they are right. Consider that God used Babylon to rebuke Israel, and took Israel's sovereignty away from itself. He didn't use them because they were faithful followers. It could be the same way with the wise men, or it could be that God reached them beforehand and they turned away from the false religon's they were around. To my knowledge of the bible, Jesus didn't confront any other belief system except the Jews. But that was part of the deal. Jesus would come to the Jews first and then the Gentiles. There are many prophets of the old Testiment that spoke against other religous systems. Again and again denouncing the false idols and the behaviors of other nations that were not Israel. I don't think there would be any reason to worry about the other religions. Jesus taught against hypocracy that was evidant in the Jewish leaders and the teachers of scripture and law. He also taught specific teachings to follow as well. It was not "follow me if your Jewish but follow a different set of rules if your a different religion or different culture." It was "follow me," even to the point of giving up everything else to do so. Sorry for the critism. But please keep it in mind. You've said a lot to show a good foundation in keeping the bible as the standard and the authority. Don't lose that by accidentally accepting things that were never said, and never known. If you can hold the spirit you feel you are lead by to be accountable to what you read in the bible. More then once I've had to rebuke my own thoughts and the things I thought were leading me because they were in disagreement with Jesus's teachings. In the same way be ready to do the same to anything you feel being lead by.
