Re: The Holy Spirit - a person??

Paidion,

If the Spirit of the Father and Spirit of the Son can be one person, that would appear to be very close to trinitarianism, i.e. no significant difference.

Re: The Holy Spirit - a person??

Paidion,

You see the Spirit as two persons, the Spirits of the Father and the Son. If "I and the Father are One", could they share in one Spirit rather than two?

Re: Trinities podcast

For what it is worth my "New Testament from Aramaic" has:

Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham was born, I was.

Hi Paidion, You wrote: So it seems to me to be impossible that there could be an infinite time in the past with no events at all. It seems to me you are basing your thinking on the idea that there is no existence outside the material creation. If we consider that "in the beginning" references the ma...

Re: Trinities podcast

Hi Paidion, How is it any harder to think of an infinite past than it is to think of an infinite future? Seems to me if there is no infinite past that God had a beginning. If we say time began when Jesus was begotten we would have to say God existed prior to, as you say, His first act of begetting J...

Just sitting there doing nothing? Do you believe that God did not exist infinitely into the past, i.e....

Re: Presto Chango!

BrotherAlan, Your contention that Jesus' body becomes the substance of the bread at some point in the Eucharist is a very puzzling thing to me. I think we likely have a very different understanding of what "substance" means. I suspect you are relying on the Latin root of the word rather than our Eng...

Re: Do We Know Better Than Jesus?

Hi Paidion,

Re: Do We Know Better Than Jesus?

Hi Paidion, Regarding Darrell's post you commented: The supposed implication to the above questions is that they are proof that in is UNNECESSARY or even MORALLY WRONG to carry out the commandments of Christ, though the framer of the questions is not bold enough to say so. I hope you will rethink yo...
