Re: Trinities podcast

Seballius, you wrote:I think it is unlikely that Thomas would use such an expression. As sensitive as the Jews were, such an expression via that manner of exclamation would probably be disrespectful if not blasphemous.
I brought it up only to present yet another view. I don't put any credence in it either.

Re: The Holy Spirit - a person??

I don't see why They couldn't. Jesus said, "The Father and I are one." (John 10:30)

Re: The Holy Spirit - a person??

Interesting points, 21¢! Another point. Although today, there are hymns and prayers addressed to the Holy Spirit, (e.g. "Come Holy Spirit, I need thee; come sweet Spirit, I pray") there is not a single prayer found in the New Testament that addresses the Holy Spirit. As I see it the Spirit is neithe...

Re: Trinities podcast

Well... I don't think the Greek is contrary to the interpretation that Darin places on the expression. Then there's Jehovah's Witnesses' interpretation to consider: Thomas was simply using slang language, just as someone today might exclaim in response to an unexpected event, "My Lord!" or "Oh, my G...

Re: when Jesus died - what actually died?

It seems to me that you, when making such assertions, are holding to the idea that, BEFORE this generation of the Son, God still existed BUT, yet, time did NOT…and, therefore, it seems to me that, implied in your theology, there is some notion of God existing without (outside of?) time. First of al...

Re: when Jesus died - what actually died?

This teaching of the great Ignatius-- and of the Scriptures-- was/is echoed in the (Catholic) Church’s early Councils (and is still proudly proclaimed during the Masses/Divine Liturgies of the Catholic—as well as Orthodox-- Church). For, the Father did/does beget the Son “before all ages”, that is,...

Re: when Jesus died - what actually died?

Jesus, Who is God, a Divine Person (Second Person of the Trinity) "The Trinity" was almost unknown until that special Nicene Council in A.D. 325 where it was defined. Nowhere in the New Testament is "the Trinity" taught except in 1 John 5:7 where the words, "And there are Three who give testimony i...

Re: when Jesus died - what actually died?

Did only part of Jesus die? Just his humanity/human nature? Was it just his physical death? Did God die? Jesus was born fully human. He wasn't a man/God hybrid. In becoming man, He divested Himself of all His divine attributes. ...though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a ...

Re: Trinities podcast

1. Trinitarians argue that this verse states that Jesus said he was the “I am” (i.e., the Yahweh of the Old Testament), so he must be God. That argument is not correct. Saying “I am” does not make a person God. The man born blind that Jesus healed was not claiming to be God, and he said “I am the m...

Re: Trinities podcast

The reading of the text below has Jesus identifying himself as the “I am” who existed before Abraham. What other logical reading can one give it? Jesus is claiming existence before Abraham and the Jews knew he was claiming to be the “I am that I am”. Thus, they picked up stones. Joh 8:57 So the Jew...
