    There is no Sin...

    Yes, I'm sure. Probably, more often than not, if it is worthy of upholding and/or revering it would also follow the line of "Love your neighbor as yourself". IMV, there is a driving force which I will call "God" that instills :His law of love in people and so, thought they may not recognize...

    One God: TheAlmighty Father, maker of all things

    That seems to be a good answer even though it went off track at times. I still believe that the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit is given to all believers and actually lives in them forever. John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another...

    One God: TheAlmighty Father, maker of all things

    God's spirit (Psalms 104:30) is the helper that God sends forth. I find often in the Bible that personification does Not have to mean or prove to be a person. (John 14:16; John 14:26; John 15:26; John 16:7-15 ) Even wisdom is personalized and we know wisdom is Not a person. Nor is 'personalized...

    Spiritual atrophy

    ...Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39 By this he meant the Spirit,whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the...

    Answering Atheists

    No, I am following you. You were talking about Satan's actions, being God's actions. That's Satan's actions, not God's Okay. Thanks very much for sharing your perspective. This is what the Bible's says on the matter. God did not exercise his power of foreknowledge to look into the future to...

    Muhammad: Paraclete and Spirit of Truth in John's Gospel?

    This term, 'the Spirit of Truth', is not unique to the Johannine gospel in Jewish literature of the period. The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs (circa. first century) refers to it: ‘Know, therefore, my children, that two spirits wait upon man - the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Deceit’...

    How can a Jew reject Jesus as the Messiah?

    Why not spend that life knowing God? God desires a relationship with his creation. We are made in God's image. Wouldn't you want to know your parents? Where does the concept of a "God-shaped hole" originate?

    The Unitarian Problem

    Well, you would do well to listen to the words of Jesus: 'If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.'[John 7:37,38] Also John 4:10: 'If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is...

    Are Shrines a Form of Idolatry?

    I am reminded of Jesus who said, John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. Points of interest (to me) He didn't say if you are thirsty I will come to you but rather "come to me". (There are some...

    Watchtower: Jesus is not "a god"!

    Prophets aren't identified as God and don't speak as if they are God. As you say, there is something in the text that shows us that it is Jehovah speaking. The Angel of the Lord is different however because He is identified as both and angel and as God. Nobody has seen the invisible God, the...

    How many sins before it is too late?

    Receiving the Holy Spirit is called a gift in Acts 11:15-17 Acts 2:38-39 lets us know to repent, and be baptized in the name for the remission of sins, and then we have a promise that he will fill us with his Holy Spirit. v39 - and the promise is to as many as God shall call. The Holy Spirit...

    Christian Bible context only: the baptisms of John and Jesus

    The account says that he was baptized in the Jordan River. That was physical water. Jews did not "baptize" until John came to encourage them to come and be immersed in the water to symbolise their repentance over sins against the Law. The Mikveh was not baptism, but ritual cleansing, taking...

    So Jesus is not God?

    But I'm about upholding what the documents say. You're about upholding a dogma that didn't exist in Jesus' day or for a couple of centuries after. Why would we bother to argue? Why would we not just cite the history of the doctrine, point out that Jesus didn't know of it, constantly denied he...

    So Jesus is not God?

    Turn about is fair play; I can provide plenty of quotes which prove that Jesus is claiming to be God even if He does not flat out state it in some of them. Not sure why you don't want to go into the intent of the actual authors anyway. If we can prove that the authors considered Jesus God then...

    The Miracle of Water.

    I love that the scriptures show not only is Jesus Christ the Creator of physical water.. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. Colossians...

    Who has the Water and Where is It?

    birds of feather tend to flock together. like attracts like. so all are born of water and the holy spirit but some sleep until someone, or something wakes, rouses them out of their revery. to believe on someone isn't advocating for idolatry. so when the person believes out of that person will...

    Who has the Water and Where is It?

    Because He is sharing with her a spiritual lesson concerning eternal life using water as an illustration, which she already understood was necessary for physical life ... On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and...

    Jesus is all that really matters

    Jesus is God manifest. God made it so that when Jesus was revealed in the world that whoever wants to be saved would call on the name of Jesus. The glory all goes to the Father. If Jesus was not God manifest in the flesh then it would not be so. Got to get on that Acts 2:38 train. That's pretty...

    The gospel according to Jim

    The physical act of baptism is actually a symbolic death, burial and resurrection, if you think about it. For Jesus, there was no sin to repent from, so his baptism was a presenting of himself to begin his mission as Messiah. He died to the doing of his own will, and was raised to a new life of...
