//I believe that the trinity roman leaders had their hands in the martyrs. So the devil can have his trinity churches to invade the world with it's Deceiving Lies & Abominations./

That is what you believe, the Jehovah Witnesses also believe something that is not true. But you believe what you say so much, you cannot stop talking about it. But you never give Scripture to support what you say. You know why? Because what you believe is not true. You have been brain washed. You attended the wrong church, and in time they convinced you with their false teachings.
---Luke on 9/25/14


\\I believe that the trinity roman leaders had their hands in the martyrs. \\

On what basis?

Do you have any historical evidence to support what you say?

Or do you simply WANT to believe this?

Glory to Jesus Christ Who is neither the Father nor the Holy Spirit!
---Cluny on 9/24/14


Lawrence:

The Rome mentioned in the gospels was a polytheistic pagan society. It believed in many gods like Jupiter, Juno, Mars, etc. It did NOT believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit - at least not until Constantine, who lived many centuries later. The martyrs of the early church were fed to lions in the Coliseum by pagan polytheists, for refusing to worship Caesar as god - NOT by trinitarians!

Lawrence:

You said: Deny all you want, it's your choice.

Earlier, you said: It's Not referring to the Rev.17 vs 4 5 6 churches peoples.

YOU were the one denying, not I.

But It IS those that Mother harlot martyred.

Who are those, exactly? As you were talking about the Acts church, any martyrs there were killed by Pharisees (e.g. Stephen) and Rome (that was polytheistic, and had nothing to do with trinitarian Christianity).

Lawrence:

When one wears two hats, one must often have an INTERNAL dialogue where each hat's priorities are in conflict. But if one has such a dialogue externally, one is either schizophrenic, or a stand-up comedian. In Gethsemane, Jesus was praying - i.e. speaking out loud.

You said: The harlot drunken with the blood of the saint's is, The Acts Church saint's that were martyred. It's Not referring to the Rev.17 vs 4 5 6 churches peoples.

Perhaps you overlooked the actual words "drunken with the blood of the saints" in verse 6?
---StrongAxe on 9/23/14


S A

About the, talking to yourself was xplained in a blog. You'l need to reread.

The harlot drunken with the blood of the saint's is, The Acts Church saint's that were martyred.
It's Not referring to the Rev.17 vs 4 5 6 churches peoples.

God has His Church in the book of Acts.

The prince of spiritual darkness has his churches in, Rev.17 vs 4 5 6.
---Lawrence on 9/23/14


Lawrence:

You said: The Acts Church IS Bible, or it wouldn't be there.

So what? I never said it wasn't, and it has nothing to do with whether trinitarianism is right or wrong.

Rev. 17:4-6 is a harlot drunk with the blood of the saints. This clearly isn't Christian. How much genocide against Christians has been done by Lutherans, Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, etc.?

And you're still avoiding my "talking to yourself" question.

Samuel

God's Word IS Right, Acts IS the Church of The Living God, or it wouldn't there in scripture.

You Are Biblicaly Wrong with trinity, because it's not found in scriptures, but IS manmade theology n ideology, trying to prove that which is Not. For Those that believe in such, God put the fictitious triune godhead churches in Rev. 17 vs 4 5 6. And you can deny All you want, it's your choice. It will Not change The Word of God. I'm not on here to be popular to tickle peoples hearing. They have you n others to do such.
---Lawrence on 9/22/14




It doesn't have to be the evil speaking through someone because sometimes they also do that from their own mind and claim its from God and a Prophecy. I don't know about others but for me the Holy Ghost Spirit within me doesn't bear witness with any thing which isn't from God. It is just like a cold bucket of ice water has been dumped on my head if it isn't from God. God equips his people to recognize the Devil in all situations and that comes by the Spirit and the Word of God. We must study the Bible and then we know God's Will and His Ways and what He would do and say and what He won't. God doesn't leave us at the mercy of the World or the Devil,the Bible says we have power over all the power of the enemy. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 9/22/14


Lawrence there are a lot of Churches that say they are Bionically founded and are here. The Jehovah Witness church for one.

I believe my church the Seventh day Adventist is a Bible believing church.

You say we are both wrong. But just because your church is here on earth does not make it correct anymore than our being here makes us correct.

What matters is do we follow the Bible. You say we do not. But your minority view has not been shown to be true from the Bible by any verse you have given. Nor have you answered the verses we have shown from the Bible.

Unless you show me from the Bible I am wrong I will not change my mind.

When we try to show you the Bible your response is not Biblical or loving.
---Samuelbb7 on 9/22/14


S A

The Acts Church IS Bible, or it wouldn't be there.

The triune godhead religious orgs churches is Not Biblical. For those who think n believe in such, that's why God put them in Rev.17 vs 4 5 6, AND THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
I don't want peoples blood on my hands.
I'm not on here to be popular n tickle peoples hearing. There's others to do that, even you.

Lawrence:

Do YOU, who similarly wear many hats, but are actually one person, have agonizing conversations with yourself, similar to the one Jesus had on Gethsemane, where your two different roles simultaneously take two opposing points of view? And so others can hear you do this and talk about it?

You still didn't answer why you hijack so many other blogs onto your favorite trinity-bashing topic.
---StrongAxe on 9/22/14


S A

You keep ignoring. Just reread if you need to, to find explanation.

Glory to God The Father which who Is Jesus Christ.
---Lawrence on 9/22/14


Lawrence:

Yet you continue to avoid two questions I have asked repeatedly:

Was Jesus schizophrenic at Gethsemane, speaking to himself, saying he simultaneously wanted to die, and did not want to tie?

And why do you keep hijacking one blog topic after another to bash trinitarianism? Why not discuss that in a blog specifically designed for that purpose, rather than turning every other discussion away from its purpose towards your own personal obsession?

---Lawrence on 9/20/14


Lawrence,

You go on and on, constantly vilifying trinitarianism, calling it a "harlot" - you are so obsessed with this one issue that you hijack one blog after another to endlessly argue about this.

Yet note that the Bible does not dwell on theology. Jesus never referred to himself as father. All deductions about the nature of godhead are gleanings from this verse and that. It is never a central teaching. Look what Jesus CONSTANTLY taught about - compassion, love, hypocrisy. THESE are important. Yet you are swallowing camels yet choking on a 3-headed gnat.
---StrongAxe on 9/20/14


Bitterness, unforgiveness a evil.

Lawrence:

It does not matter if Jesus is the Father (oneness), co-equal with the Father (trinitarian), created by the father (JW+SDA) or even if he was merely a cleaning woman. Because "For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." (Collossians 2:9), it means that whichever of the previous cases is true makes NO DIFFERENCE on how we relate to him.

If you speak to an ambassador plenipotentiary, it is equivalent to speaking with the king, even if he isn't really the king, as he has the king's full authority.

//When your judgments times comes you can answers to yours fictitious 3 gods.//

Lawrence, no one is saved by believing in the trinity or not believing in the trinity. We are told we are saved by grace through faith. We are not saved by our works. No amount of works can save a person. So there is no need to condemn anyone. Are you saved by grace through faith? Make your assurance sure, we are told in Scripture. What you are doing is comparing yourself to others, and some how you believe your smarter then others because you belong to a "Oneness" church, so you believe you deserve salvation, but you don't. No one does.
---Luke on 9/16/14

You said: So if you think He was talking to Himself, so be it.

I didn't say believe that - YOU implied YOU believe that.

If Jesus is the Father, and he is TALKING to the Father, he must, ergo, be talking to himself. Is this not right? If not, please explain HOW, because this is the only conclusion basic logic leads to.

Trinitarians say "Father is God. Son is God. Spirit is God. Father is not Son. Son is not Spirit. Spirit is not Father".

If you have seen my right hand, you have seen me. If you have seen my left foot, you have seen me. But my right hand is NOT my left foot.

In other words, you DO believe Jesus WAS speaking to himself when he said "Not my will but thine be done". He WAS schizophrenic. He WAS the author of confusion. It's good to know how you feel about this.
---StrongAxe on 9/13/14

As like I did say here or other. It's All about The Lord Jesus. It's All about Him, for Him n how He does it, He does it All by Himself. He does Not need 2 others to help Him for what n how He does it. He said, I & my Father Are One. He told Phillip, when you have seen me you have seen the Father.

If there was trinity, then it should have said, in the beginning gods.

Then please explain the Gethsemane prayer:
"Please take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, thy will, rather than mine be done."

If Jesus IS the father, he was praying to himself. Did he want to die, or not? Apparently, simultaneously yes and no. Was Jesus schizophrenic? Was he the author of confusion?

If what you say is true, I cannot see how it is possible for you to answer "no" to the above questions. Please explain.

Lawence,

You are so quick to point out the verses that equate Jesus with the Father, but why do you ignore the ones that say they are different (i.e. "Not my will but thine be done", "Why do you call me good? Only God is good", "No man knows the day or hour - only the father in Heaven", etc.)

If you are truly guided by the Bible, you must accept ALL of them - and realize that Jesus is God, yet AT THE SAME TIME, not the same as the Father.

I know The Real God. scriptures says, I and my Father are 1, when you have sen me you have seen The Father, before Abaraham was I am, Thomas said my Lord & my God.//

Lawrence, Jesus and the Father are one in their divine nature. When you see Jesus you are seeing God the Father because they are one in their divine nature. What you are seeing is Jesus in flesh, and you cannot understand His divine nature. His flesh died but His divine nature never died. And since Jesus is God in His divine nature, He was before Abraham, in fact before all things, Since He created all things. He is God. This are spiritual things, something you do not understand. You have to think in the spirit.

Lawrence,
God is One, not two but One, and I answer to Him. Jesus is God, the Father is God, and so is the Holy Spirit. They make the godhead. They speak for each other. Jesus introduces the Father, the Holy Spirit speaks for Christ. All three Persons have the same nature, character and attributes. All are Omnipotent, Omniscience, Omnipresent. Holy and righteous. As a "Oneness" you do not know the real God of the Bible. You have the wrong Jesus just like the Witnesses, Mormons, Buddha's, Hindus and so forth.

If the moderators removed every single topic where people got involved in mud-slinging, etc., there would be virtually no topics left! There are some people who have nothing better to do than shove their own personal theological agendas down everyone else's throats, hijacking one blog after another for the same purpose, and/or calling anyone names or worse if they don't agree with those agendas.

Rita,
If they were to remove the blog for the reasons you give, you might have to remove all of those Lawrence puts down what he does. And every blog he has answered, it has always been to condemn Trinitarians. With no proof. It's true, no body knows everything, but when we have something to say, we should support it with some Biblical passages. Agape
---Luke on 8/25/14


God gives discernment to some Christians but not to others. That does not give people here the right to accuse others of having Satan speak through them. When one does that another is going to retaliate and that is not Christlike.

Lawrence:

Funny, when I read Revelation 17:4-6 (which you mention over and over again), I don't see any mention of "trinity churches". You must be reading between the lines. Also funny how you condemn those who read between the lines of the Bible and see "trinity" when it isn't actually written anywhere. If you want to condemn others for jumping to erroneous conclusions based on personal opinions of things that aren't actually written there, you should refrain from doing exactly the same thing.

Luke, not sure how I took the passages out of context but will try to explain. The blog question is "How do you know if the devil is speaking through someone"?. My answer was if a person is not speaking according to the law and the prophets there is no light in them and I meant to show that is how one knows whether the speaker's source is of God (Light) or of Satan (darkness). I read the question and answered it not realizing it had gone off track..I guess.

Yes, I believe in the Trinity, three persons in One. The Holy Spirit and the Son came forth from the God the Father.

I see you do not answer all the time, but here you say,

you gave these passages out of context, and did not explain if you were upset at the answers given here, and trying to make a point, but didn't say what your point is. I already know you do not believe in the whole Word of God, Scripture, but do you believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit? In other words are you a believer in the Trinity? It's ok if you are not.

"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Satan is not omnipresent which means he cannot be in a million places at one time. He can only be in one place at one time. Most of the time it's our own flesh that is speaking, we are wicked by nature.

However it is true that demons can speak through a person (Acts 19:15) and it is true that Satan can possess a person (Luke 22:3).

You will know if Satan is speaking through someone by their fruits.

I tend to gear more toward "what is not God" instead of "what is the devil". The devil is defeated. We are to resist him and give him no place. There are a lot of thoughts, attitudes, and motives of the carnal mind that may sound good but are "not God". When it comes to the enemy talking, the first thing I notice is accusation and condemnation. Another thing is fear. Fear is not of God.

Fear, confusion, delayed hope, envy, etc. are all the opposite of who Father God is. His sheep know His voice and a stranger they will not follow.

Test the spirits and see if they are of God -- "Has Jesus Christ come in the flesh?" -- The devil will never say yes to that. Also what is being spoken will in no way line up with the word of God. For example, someone said to me last year that they felt it very strong on them to "go to the 'so and so' Bank" - that was meant for me and I knew that I knew it was not God.

When the devil is literally speaking through someone, The person is either blank and other worldly.
The Devil's favorite's are apathy and hatred. This is possesion's portrait. A demon only wants to devour and destroy even if it's only a thought at a time. Thank God for Angels.

When the Devil is influencing a person their speech is without hope. Apathy is the devil's launching pad, and fear is his trigger.

**The voice of the Father is the voice of edification, peace, comfort, strength, and love.**

If the devil can appear as an angel of light, then it stands to reason that his utterances can imitate edification, peace, comfort, strength, and love.

Otherwise, we would not be told to TEST the spirits.
