Re: Is God in Control?

I believe the scriptures inform us that God knows all that is happening and is very much in control. Jesus' own words say as much: Matthew 10:29-31 (NASB) 29. Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30. But the very hairs of your ...

Re: Reconciled to God , not Jesus

Paidion wrote: The begetting of the Son (when the Son emerged from the Father) was the first of the Father's acts. This marked the beginning of time. And no, the Father didn't lose something or become less when the Father begat Him. When a human father begets a son, he as a person doesn't lose somet...

Re: Reconciled to God , not Jesus

If the Trinity or at least Binity is not true we have many problems such as polytheism, or Jesus is not divine, or not actually God's Son, or was a mere man, etc., etc.

Re: Dallas Willard - The Divine Conspiracy

Darin,

Great book! IMO his exposition of the Sermon on the Mount is the best I have ever read. Recently finished his "Spirit of the Disciplines" which I had for some time, another great book.

Re: Jesus' God was not the Trinity, why is yours?

Hi Paidion, You wrote: Matthew 3:1 ???????? Homer, are you actually referring to Matthew 1:23? Yes, you are correct. That is what happens when I hurry and am not careful. My 80 year old mind can lose track of things. But that has been happening for at least 25 years. I recall at work leaving my offi...

Re: Jesus' God was not the Trinity, why is yours?

Paidion,

So it is your contention that Matthew did not quote the passage in Isaiah correctly, or our NT translations are incorrect, or Matthew made up the verse 3:1? I'm not sure what your point is.

Thanks, Homer

Re: Jesus' God was not the Trinity, why is yours?

Hi Paidion,

You reference the LXX. Do you know from what source the copy you cite came from? Could it be from the Siniatic Aleph and/or codex Vaticanus?

Re: Jesus' God was not the Trinity, why is yours?

Darin, I apologize for my tardy response. Darin wrote: (Homer) But Jesus' words while here on earth reflect his status at that point in time when he had "emptied Himself". How do you exegete Isaiah 9:6 where we see "everlasting Father" as a descriptor of the child who was born to us? (Darin) I would...

Re: Jesus' God was not the Trinity, why is yours?

Hi Paidion, You wrote: Papyrus 66, dated about the middle of the second century (around 150 A.D.) has “μονογενης θεος” ("only begotten God" rather than "only begotten Son.") Papyrus 75, dated in the late second century (perhaps around 180 A.D.) has “ὁ μονογενης θεος”. Thus this manuscript clearly ha...

Re: Jesus' God was not the Trinity, why is yours?

Paidion,

What is the difference in your mind between being divine and being a god?
