It may occur then, and it does so time and again, that some enraptured “Illuminated One” believes himself moved by the Holy Spirit while in reality he is hearing nothing but the vocal manifestations of his own spirit. It is possible that even a church dignitary, particularly 32 ● Hans Küng’s Ecclesiology prone to that kind of temptation and danger, may consider his human impulses, thoughts, wishes, and dictates to be those of the Holy Spirit. Here, as everywhere else in the church, the distribution of spiritual gifts .
