Re: How Many Gods are there?

Right you are, Darin. The classic Trinitarian believes that "God" is a compound Being consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I was a classic Trinitarian in the first two decades of my Christian faith, doubtless because that was the position of the fundamentalist churches which I attended during...

Re: How Many Gods are there?

Matthew 1:23. "... they shall call His name Immanuel, which translated means, 'God with us.'" So Jesus, from His birth, was God (the Father) with us. Your conclusion that Jesus was God the Father does not follow from the fact that his name is Immanuel (which means "God with us"). My name is "Donald...

Re: How Many Saviors Are There?

In his prayer, Jesus himself addressed his Father as the ONLY true God. When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to...

Re: How Many Saviors Are There?

Here is a good translation of Titus 2:13

...looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and of our Saviour Jesus Christ.

The glory of the great God will appear, and the glory of our saviour Jesus Christ will appear. Although similar, the two are distinct.

Re: How Many Saviors Are There?

Again Dwight, the text does NOT say "The appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ" but rather "The "appearing of the glory of our great God and our Savior, Christ". The word "our" has been omitted in some translations, but it's clearly there in the Greek". So the Greek text itself ...

Re: How Many Saviors Are There?

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you t...

Hi Homer, you quoted: Titus 2:13 New American Standard Bible 1995 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, Translations, translations, translations! I don't know why some translations omit the word "our" before "Savior". It's in the Gr...

Re: How Many Saviors Are There?

Homer, in my initial reply I was distinguishing between Yahweh (God) in the pre-Christian era being the only Saviour of the Hebrews from their enemies, and Jesus via his death and resurrection being the only Saviour of his disciples from sin. But in the Christian era, God the Father, can also be con...
