Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

No and yes, respectively ... if I may ... maybe no and no.

What I've been seeing shaping up here, and concretized by Lee, is :

Jesus was/is not Yahweh. Yahweh was/is Jesus.

It's Jesus all...

Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

No it don't. I quoted John 1:1 from their New World Translation (JW translation) about a month ago, Post #9



That's how they work out the Jesus was God thing. Jesus is just "a god," - little...

Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

Hey ... yeah! And God knows we need that ... He hardwired it into our psyche ... so we'd believe anyone can be or become God.

Re: Billy Graham - Tribute to Faithful Gift in the Body

Neither Graham nor Lee were angels. But I think out of respect to the family we should hold off being critical of their flaws to give family a time to grieve.

Just saying. And I can be...

Re: Bipartite or Tripartite Nature of Man?

Thanks for all that Peter. I remember back around 1970 being completely enthralled with the three circles of man, each divided into three sections. I was ignorant and naive back then.

Re: Politics and the Church

Manafort just keeps digging his hole deeper and deeper.

Trump must have known about his larcenies. Must be what he meant when he said he'd select the best people. The best at what?

Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

And they don't care. You've proven with plain scripture, and they don't care.

Why?

I've already pointed out that, history proves, going way back into where and when there's only archaeological...

A little humor here ... irony actually.

Sometime ago -- it seems like forever ago -- I brought up an expert on these LC, or anti-LC, forums. I introduced Professor Bart Ehrman, a contemporary...

Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

Get on with it already. I'll start. We're discussing the “Philippians Hymn” or the “Christ Hymn of Philippians."

Just for the record, this is considered by Bible scholars to be pre-Pauline, i.e....

Bodies can become sick. Lee's body was one of them. It had two heads.

Re: Billy Graham - Tribute to Faithful Gift in the Body

Both Billy Graham and Watchman Nee had dynamic ministries. Both weren't perfect ; neither were angels. They were both as mortal and flawed as the rest of us.

But their ministries produced...

Okay, I'll respond to your post. Surely you can't claim that's off topic. You seem to be seeing as most trinitarians see, as in, reading into any verse that can be found to support their preferred...

Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

It also says nothing about the divinity of Jesus nor of the Holy Spirit. And Jesus is not God, because he sits on the right of God. It does speak of the three, and so alludes to the trinity.

Re: The Trinity: Consistent with the Bible?

Then why did we need the creeds?

I think people back then were quick to attribute divinity to charismatic leaders. So it's possible that Paul was appealing to that zeitgeist, which is why he...

If the scripture doesn't help, then look to reproduction biology. For Jesus to be male he had to have an XY chromosome.
