    Buddhists have a God and so have many religions ..........> ?

    Lately I've noticed the whole world changing to the chemical/scientist God.

    Here is a whole congregation of them::p

    I understand that the Messiah "the Son" was a rock in the wilderness.

    But who was giving the Law of Moses in the wilderness?

    And where was the "Brother" of the Son while all this was happening?

    ''26 And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.” 27 And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.”

    Lately? There is no evidence of the above assertion. Of course some people do not believe in God, but by far most people believe in God. Others like myself believe in the harmony of religion and science, and the scientific knoledge of our physical existence reflects Creation by God.


    As far as Moses is concerned it as God.

    I believe mask wearing people are demonstrating their obedience to Fauchi (their new scientist god).

    Addressing the OP. God is neither a trinity, nor a unity. God is an Ordinal of himself in time, Rank, and place,. and here's the biblical proof. Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:"
    this is where many, not all scholars make their ERROR at. our ONE God is "ONE" LORD. read Deuteronomy 6:4 again. and when one do, then read the definition of "ONE", it's the Hebrew word,
    H259 אֶחָד 'echad (ech-awd') adj.
    1. (properly) united, i.e. one.
    2. (as an ordinal) first.
    [a numeral from H258]
    KJV: a, alike, alone, altogether, and, any(-thing), apiece, a certain, (dai-)ly, each (one), + eleven, every, few, first, + highway, a man, once, one, only, other, some, together.

    definition #2 is the key to God as to "WHAT" he is. he is an Ordinal of himself in TIME, First and Last, and Place, First and Last. meaning the same one God is First at Genesis 1:1, and Last at John 1:1.

    these are the keys in understanding God as the, H430 אֱלֹהִים 'elohiym (el-o-heem'), meaning he's a plurality of ONE, in TIME PLACE, ORDER, and RANK. which maintain his H433 אֱלוֹהַּ 'elowahh (el-o'-ah) status as the ONLY "ONE" true God..

    Correct, God is no trinity, nor is he a unity, but as the Hebrew, H259 אֶחָד 'echad (ech-awd') states, and the Greek clearly states, G243 Allos, he's the EQUAL SHARE of himself in flesh.

    if you are saying Jesus is as good as he can be .
    ''he's the EQUAL SHARE of himself in flesh."?
    if you are saying Jesus is as good as he can be . yes

    what I'm saying by "EQUAL SHARE" is that he is the Ordinal of Himself in flesh. do you understand what I mean by Ordinal?. understand he's the FIRST and the LAST of his own-self.

    to illustrate a point Jesus made
    17 And as he was going out on his way, a certain man ran up and fell upon his knees before him and put the question to him: “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit everlasting life?” 18 Jesus said to him: “Why do you call me good? Nobody is good, except one, God.

    Jesus showed, he him self, was not as good as the father .

    ERROR, did Jesus say he was not Good? if that is true as you say, then tell us how is "GOD" bad then, listen, Hebrews 1:8 "But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom." so, cataway, are you saying God on the other hand is not Good?, that's an oxymoron.

    You seem not to understand the meaning of the term Trinity. Trinity is a Unity of Persons as One God without division in being the One God. Not Tritheism. Not Modalism.

    Still . . . way off topic. It sounds like you are living in the 11th century.

    So, who gave the instructions on/from mount Horeb? Which one of the unity? The Father, or the son or the brother?

    Yes, you guests it; It was the Son giving the instructions/laws from mount Horeb and not the Father.

    Here is the Biblical proof:

    Joh 5:37 The Father himself, who sent me, has testified about me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.

    As far as Moses goes God spoke to him. The above citation does not support what you claim. You here does not refer to Moses.
