    It was from a quote in Michael's article.

    "On this forum"? I'd really rather you didn't single out RF.

    I'm sorry, Iris. I was referring to you having written "on this forum", as opposed to "on most forums" or something that didn't single out RF. You probably didn't mean to.

    I will withdraw again from this thread, and hope that anyone who feels that their religion or belief system is being maligned will know they can contact the forum moderators and administrators at any time.

    Hi FeathersinHair

    Actually people do not differ that greatly between Religious Forums and many other forums so the statement would be appropriate on most forms. I shall specify Religious forums if you desire in the future.

    Now what did you thing with regard to my biblical comments?

    Hello, Iris.

    It is not my place to discuss what I think about your biblical comments, since I am not a Christian and the Bible is not my holy text. Thank you for asking, though!

    IRIS: That was incredible! There are numerous other passages that beg an answer from Trinitarians. One of my favorites: (paraphrased, since I dont have a bible in front of me.) "....After all things have been subjected unto GOD, Christ then subjects himself unto GOD that thus All Things may be subject to the almighty."
    Or:
    " No one knows the day or the hour ( of the End) Not the Angels, Nor the Christ, Only the Almighty." Ever try and keep a secret from yourself??? its tough!

    Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our Gods (plural) is Jehovah a unity."


    Genesis 1:26, 27 "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness ... So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him."


    Jude 1:20, 21 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

    What do you mean there is no reference to the trinity in the Bible? These are just 3 of hundreds of verses.

    Hi Searcher63

    Thanks for the complement.

    To do in-depth research on the Trinity, go to:

    Hi John63

    Those scriptures you quoted:

    Have nothing to do with a trinity, so get real.

    Go read the book by Dr. Anthony Buzzard,

    The Doctrine of the Trinity: Christianity's Self-Inflicted Wound
    by Anthony F. Buzzard and Charles F. Hunting

    Well, your a warm and fuzzy character. And an ordained Jehovah's Witness? You expend an aweful lot of time and effort trying to tear down one of the basic tenets of Christianity, then you end every post with "In Christ". (Except for your response to me). Excuse me Mrs. 89 for having faith.

    Iris:
    I appreciate the facts that you bring out in exposing these false doctrins. How a person responds when faced with the truth tells wether or not they have a right heart condition.
    I also appreciate the kind , tactful way in your approach.You do not beat people over the head , but simply present facts in a kindly manner!

    Ummm..can I refer you to her response to me where she tells me to "get real". All I did was quote some scripture. But I wouldn't expect much more from a Jehovah's Witness so it doesn't surprise me.

    And you're convinced that these verses are referring to your doctrine, or more specifically jehovah's witness doctrine? That's pretty arrogant of you.

    You don't need to shout Iris, I'm not deaf!:D
    You have a right to your opinionn, just as I have a right to mine.

    Now, please, if you are going to ask me to look up supporting evidence for what you have written, stop merely quoting your own writings, on various other forums.

    I'm very sorry that you feel compelled to run someone down for merely complimenting someone else on their kindness. Thats sad.

    One of the basic tenants of Christianity?? Are you joking?? The trinity is about as far removed from a basis in Christianity as you can get. Its amazing how people refuse to see truth, based on history especially. But I suppose thats why it was written: "Satan keeps blinding the minds of the unbelievers." The bible also says: True believers would hear "THE RING OF TRUTH". People always think spirituality has to be hard to understand to have merit. Seems to me that GOD would want truth to be easy to understand so that people from ALL walks of life could benefit.
