Core Christian Doctrines
  
One thing I am certain any Christian agrees with, is Christ was resurrected and he is coming again to establish his kingdom. If we don't then as Paul said, "our faith is in vain and we are to be pitied among all men".

Archbold_Muhle,

Gods blessings to you my brother! I agree with all you have said and am grateful God has given me knowledge of the things I desired to know. It is a joy to know a kindred mind is on this sight.

the seg,

Your judgement is rediculous and arrogant. I know it was from God yet I am afraid to say it is because of fear of being a false prophet. Believe what you wish, you'll see.


Meaning Of Son Of God
  
aka,

Elohim (which is plural, called the plural of majesty or excellency) is the word of most frequent occurrence. When it is distinctly used for the one true God the article is often added(Morrish Bible Dictionary)

The plural form of Elohim has given rise to much discussion. The fanciful idea that it referred to the trinity of persons in the Godhead hardly finds now a supporter among scholars. It is either what grammarians call the plural of majesty , or it denotes the fullness of divine strength, the sum of the powers displayed by God.(Smiths bible dictionary)

These are fellow Trinitarian scholars. As I said, one person, doctrine doesn't change grammar.

Mark Eaton,

Other translations say in him YLT, Rotherham Emphasized, English Revised and in ESV's note it says,by means of or in. What does the end of the verse say all thing were created through him and for him proving in fits the context better.

Colossians 2:12-you also have been raised with him through your faith in the power of God who raised him from the dead. God raised the him in verse 2:9, making him man, not God. It speaks of Gods divine nature being fully in Christ, a physical man, not a phantom as the Dosetics said. He was the image of God as Adam was, completely full of Gods nature just as we are full of Adams nature. Read the first three verses of the letter, Gods son.

Mark Eaton,

Please explain this.

1Corinthians 8:4,6-there is no God but one...yet for us there is one God, the Father
Is there anyway to say one or two more people are God as well if the Father is the one God and as Jesus said in his prayer to the Father, "the only true God"?

Please don't ask me a question as a response, just answer my question with an explanation.

Shalom

mark eaton,

I am YHWH your God, there none else(Joel 2:27). A them does not use personal pronouns(one person) like I, me, mine, him, his, unless you change simple grammatical rules of coarse. Over 20,000 times personal pronouns are used in reference to YHWH our God in the OT alone. Even Jesus himself agrees with this saying, "that they know you(the Father), the only true God". How many is only, if the Father is the only true God? Jesus is the only born son, like none other, of the only true God, thus the son of God. The holy spirit is the power of the Most High(Luke 1:35), not God. Both are of God, Him being the source they come and came from.

So correctly God is an I.


Meaning Of Son Of God
  
here is what trinitarians say if John 1:1 speaks of the Son. "In the beginning was the Son. The son was with the Father(since he had to be with somebody it couldn't be anyone else) and the Son was the Father", except for some unjustifiable reason you change God in the last section of this verse.


Meaning Of Son Of God
  
Mark Eaton,

Colossians 1:1,2--Grace to you and peace from God our Father. We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you. 12-14-giving thanks to the Father who has qualified you to share in the saints inheritance in the light. He...transferred us to the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15-firstborn of all creation, 18 says He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. What creation is spoken of? The Kingdom of God, notice in 16 the creation spoken of is governmental. 16 should not read created by him, but rather in him, which is attested to at the end.


Meaning Of Son Of God
  
Elohiym being a plural noun does not mean plural in substance. If it were plural it would be Elohiyms. Example Deut. 11:16-Take care lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods(elohiym) and worship them.. Notice it says them making Elohiym plural and translated gods. Why does it say "God(singular)said", verse 27- So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them. he and him are singular pronouns, meaning one person not multiple and that is why a singular noun is used. The prounoun determines if it is plural or singular. If Elohiym is plural in substance, God is an it.


Meaning Of Son Of God
  
having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, You are my Son, today I have begotten you? Or again, "I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son?(Hebrews 1:3,4)

that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit(Matt. 1:20)

The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you, therefore(for this reason) the child to be born will be called holy- the Son of God(Luke 1:35)

"the word became flesh"-this word is Gods promise which now has been fulfilled since he was born. His preexistence is in Gods plan not as a person.


Is This A Fantasy
  
TheSeg,

first my friend, I never said I was a prophet, but told a dream I had that I wonder if it is of God. I can't say yes because this has never happened before, but I have a feeling more than likely it is. I really don't care how you feel or what your opinion is, but do pray you consider how you speak of others, because you will be judged in like manner, brother.

And if it does become what was in my dream, then yes it is a prophecy, but it doesn't make me a prophet

Shalom

Warwick will you answer this?

there is no God but one...yet for us there is one God(who is that God), the Father-1Corithians 8:4,6

Paul says there is no God but one, the Father. The Father made Jesus both Lord and Christ(Acts 2:36). Why do Paul and Jesus say the Father is the one and only person who is God?(John 5:44,17:3,1Timothy 1:17,2:5, Ephesians 4:6). Peter says,"The God of our forefathers raised up Jesus...God exalted him to his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins(Acts 3:13,5:30). (the God of there forefathers(YHWH-Joel 2:26, I)raised and exalted Jesus)

Is God a three persons thing or one person who says I,me,mine?


Is This A Fantasy
  
Sister,

God certainly does give us visions and dreams when He desires. An example is this. Three nights ago I had a dream where there was a weather map and on it were two hurricanes, the first wasn't named but the second was, Lee. I woke wondering what it meant. So I went to the Weather Channel site and sure enough Lee was a name on the list. I have been hesitant to tell others because I do not wish to falsely prophesy, but I share this to encourage you to seek God to understand this dream and do not be afraid to believe it.

Shalom


Tax Cuts Create Jobs
  
Mike,

The rich for the most part, determine the fate of the middle class. The real question is, why aren't we praying for these people that we may lead a peaceable and quite life, not complain about how we are getting the short end of the stick. "there is a man who pretends he is rich yet is poor. There is a man who pretends he is poor yet possess great wealth(the kingdom of heaven)"(Proverbs 13:7), God has chosen the poor to be rich in faith(James 2:5) Don't expect the world to regard righteousness.

I agree with the moderator, this isn't a communist or socialist country, it is capitalistic. The poorest in this country have more than 90% of the world!

Good point JamesL

//you may have a case if Jesus said-I ascend to our Father and our God. But He doesn't, drawing attention to the differentation between His Father and our Father and His God and our God-Warwick//

I quote you "The very idea is nonsense". His God our God, there is no differentiation.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ(Ephesians 1:3)
It seems like Paul understood what Jesus said.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead(1Peter 1:3)
Peter understood. Curse these heretics for such blaspheme!

Marc,

will you be bold enough to answer this.

there is no God but one...yet for us there is one God(who is that God), the Father-1Corithians 8:4,6

Paul says there is no God but one, the Father. The Father made Jesus both Lord and Christ(Acts 2:36). Why do Paul and Jesus say the Father is the one and only person who is God?(John 5:44,17:3,1Timothy 1:17,2:5, Ephesians 4:6)

Is God a thing(He's either a person,place or thing) consisting of three persons or one person who says I,me,mine?

"scripture interprets scripture"


Do You Believe Your Church
  
I have accepted things God has revealed and would not be welcome in the church I attended and probably most Orthodox churches. But I will suffer this lose for the truth of Gods word.

Marc,
you didn't read my post
//Why did Thomas say "the Lord of me, the God of me", because Jesus is the King, the seed of David and Gods representative .It would be odd that 20:17 says Jesus wants Thomas to know he is going to their God and then is Thomas' God//
And yes what you say makes three Gods, idolatry.

there is no God but one...yet for us there is one God(who is that God), the Father 1Corithians 8:4,6

Answer this: Paul says there is no God but one, the Father. The Father made Jesus both Lord and Christ(Acts 2:36). Why do Paul and Jesus say the Father is the one and only person who is God?(John 5:44,17:3, 1Timothy 1:17,2:5, Ephesians 4:6)

Is God a person or thing?
