Re: Our “spirits”?

I reckon we have or are a spirit and/or soul, so I'm a dualist, I guess. Other than that, I haven't really thought about it. I found Colossians 2:5 interesting: "For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ." W...

Re: Trinities podcast

I've listened to 6 or so random episodes, not all related closely to trinitarianism. It's often interesting and informative. But is there some episode where he simply describes his view of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit - how they're the same and how they're different? Frankly, I can't really t...

Re: Accountability Partners

Doesn't seem like an inherently bad idea to me.

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

And I start to think, well, if God is particularly fond of 3, then why don't we have 3 arms and 3 legs and 3 eyes instead of 2? Maybe He is fond of 2. And so on. And then we split into yet more denominations. ;) :) That's a good one, Singalphile! But then again, a lot of people like the number 7, a...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Hello, 3Resurrections. I understand how God might be called "father" prior to, as you say, "having The Word become His Son at the incarnation." I wasn't saying that I thought a "mother" was necessary. I did think your point about Jesus needing a mother (Mary) in order to be called "son" made sense. ...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

I have been waiting for someone to respond to 3Re[s]urrections post on 2/28. I thought she made some interesting points which haven't been responded to. She wrote: Because of this necessity for the Son to be sharing the same type of human body form with those He represents, then if we had an "etern...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

For Singalphile too, About God having the description of "Father", even before the incarnation of the second person of the Godhead, Jesus the Son; we have Adam who was called "The son of God" in the day of his creation, as in the genealogy of Luke 3:38, "...the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the so...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate

Singlefile, was this Logos/Son senscient in your opinion? In what sense can it be seen as a person, scripturally? What form did it have pre-incarnation and post-incarnation? I know you don’t have all the answers, but I’m curious how you see it. Yeah, I don't think I can explain my views. I wouldn't...

Re: Proverbs 30, and Jesus' pre-incarnate "sonship"

Hi Singalphile, Regarding the question of how God could be called a "Father" before Jesus the incarnate Son was conceived, and later "begotten" in heaven as the First-born from among the dead: Wouldn't God's creation of the "sons of God" (the angels who sang together for joy when the earth was crea...

Re: Who Is Worshipped?

In my experience, it's always been kind of evenly split, I think.

Along the lines of the king/prince illustration, I can't imagine a father being upset or jealous about any adoration given to his uniquely beloved and obedient son. (Not that anyone said anything like that.)
