Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

No human being dead or alive will satisfy the question for you.

Therefore, I think the NT writers and those they wrote about, like Stephen in Acts, are the best examples of “true...

When we believe we get fire insurance, then when we die we all go to heaven, meet and get passed St. Peter at the pearly gates, get a pair of wings, become angels, get a new...

Reasonable, except your last point.... ;)

God works through the Body. We each are but a single member of the Body. Are you all the hearing? Is another member an ear in the Body perhaps more so...

Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

The NT opened the path of divinization of humanity. However, I do not dismiss that ultimately all of Godís people will be divinized as the New Jerusalem depicts.

Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

All good until the very last point.

There is a reason why God gives gifts to the Body.

Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

I thought it was clear but I'll accommodate because maybe my speaking was faulty or maybe your hearing is faulty.

God's truth is not faulty and every man is.

You seem to be making the faulty...

Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

For the moment, lets say your premise is accurate.

What does that tell us? That because God uses "faulty humans" the truth is void?

nay, nay.

You're a faulty human... but that doesn't stop...

Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

Right,

Terms also can be a stumbling block. Union with God, theosis, divinization, becoming one with God, or deification, all mean the same thing but the last term causes the most reaction because...

Re: Bible Answer Man Converts to Eastern Orthodox!

StG,

The line is the Godhead. We believers never become God in the Godhead in spite of misunderstandings, sometimes purposeful, in this forum.

So, i believe many, maybe most, in this forum...

I'll bite.

The no brainer answer is Jesus.... He is the Firstborn among many brethren.

Yet, I am sure you mean who besides Him. Clearly, every regenerated born again believer joined to the Lord...

UntoHim,

Sanctification is a separate topic. Has no relevance in this discussion.

Your characterization must be referring to someone else you were thinking of.

Per your inquiry I would refer you back to #34.
