Re: "Educated people are more likely to be atheists."

(I too have a close high school friend who posted similar stuff on FB, but I cant link the discussion without the entire FB page. The atheists in our philosophical meeting group bring this up now and again also, here is how I answered) To bumper sticker a statistic, or use data without considering t...

Re: The Trinity and Light

Paidion you are trying to explain your ideas by restricting yourself, and God, to human attributes and definitions. Or confining yourself only to what you know about what persons are composed of. God is not a man, thus what God is as a person, does not have to be what we think a person must be. And ...

Re: The Trinity and Light

Jose, attacking the trinity does not justify your own belief about Jesus: It is one thing to have discussions about God within the context of monotheism, but outside of monotheism you may as well be discussing polytheism or atheism, scripture does not allow for more than one God. You need to first d...

Re: The Trinity and Light

But if we are made in the image of God, how does the trinity fit in regard to separate persons? 'There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all... ...

Re: The Trinity and Light

You have a remarkable ability to always sidestep the questions being asked of you. (Jose) You asked one question I addressed it. You pop in here with one odd question and you are going to criticize me? That is baloney, and your inability to see the answer is not my fault. Jesus, like all Jewish boy...

Re: The Trinity and Light

I want to apologize to Darin, you did 'not' allude that I thought, you thought, I was saying, it was salvation issue, I guess I gathered that from Diz's post here: "... as I don't think it's salvific and darin is very right on that". Sorry.

Re: The Trinity and Light

Jesus is the Word. Neither did Jesus have to go home and say to mom, 'hey I just read where the bible says I am God' (He always knew). Jose, all I can think is, I really don't know where you are coming from. That's the point Jesus did not have to learn who He was - He knew who He was, before Abraham...

Re: The Trinity and Light

Brenden I fear God, don't you? I do not know how a believer of any denomination or such, could take a cavalier attitude to the 'command' and mandate that God is One, and He is the One and Only. That is God 101, that is the foundation of our understanding of God. It makes no sense to move past that p...

Re: Musings on animal sacrifices

Thanks for answering above Diz. Animal sacrifices started when God made a 'covering' for Adam, the sacrifices were thus known to everyone after, even to Noah who then built an alter and offered sacrifices to God. Death and thus sacrifice were a payment for sin, that is clear as day. But offering was...

Re: The Trinity and Light

Again Paidion is trying to break down what I, or we, believe is the Trinity, and has it wrong. And still ignores the fact that he has two gods. Paidion won't communicate with my posts, because I said Paidion has two gods, and does not believe Moses: and he doesn't. I have put out there what I believ...
