In there "mormons" are also not allowed to post in the Christian-section.
The entire place is arbitrary. &

Since God created the heavens and the earth, and since Jesus created the heavens and the earth, Jesus is God in the fullest sense as is so very clearly stated in John 1:1.

Furthermore, Jesus Himself claimed to be God as I showed in my thread, Jesus' claim to be Deity as recorded by Matthew and Mark

The one true God subsists as three distinct 'Persons.' ''Trinity teachers'' as you call them are not lying. Those who hold the Trinitarian view, a view held by the early church, do so because they recognize that the concept of the Trinity, not the actual word, but the concept of the Trinity is found in the Bible regardless of what the Johnny-come-lately Jehovah's Witnesses which originated in 1872 claim to the contrary. The Jehovah's Witnesses are nothing more than a modern day offshoot of Arianism.



I have studied--JESUS-- for years--his teachings--PROVE 100% the JW teachers are his. In every translation on earth. Try learning what Jesus actually taught. Here is what a true followers heart instructs their mind to do 24/7 365-
Matthew 6:33- Therefore, keep on seeking-FIRST- the kingdom and his( YHWH(Jehovah) righteousness and all these other things will be added to you( sustenance, covering, spirituality)


I know 100% my teachers get this deep into each ones heart to live by daily--no Trinitarian even knows this teaching properly even though when Jesus said these two things must be first in ones life. Their charities wont even teach this to the needy ones when in need, they hand out a temp solution, while this permanent solution is left out--- something wrong in that picture. It proves they do not know Jesus. They fail both him and the needy in reality.


All who have studied the bible--know 100% trinity translation teach 2 different gods. They are filled with error.

Yes, especially in "Saudi America," the portion of the USA between New England and the West Coast where the medieval worldview still reigns supreme.

As I said, the Jehovah's Witnesses are nothing more than a modern day offshoot of the Arians who denied the full deity of Jesus. The NT writers knew that Jesus is fully God as shown for example in John 1:1 and in Hebrews chapter one.

How about the Ebionites, descendants of the Council of Jerusalem that was led by James the Just?...

You have studied the Jesus that the WT portrays, perhaps, so, yes, in a way they are 100% correct in what they teach because they formulated it...

Its funny--trinity translations contradict Jesus' truth--John 20:17, Rev 3:12--I will believe Jesus first everytime.
Rev 1:1--a revelation of Jesus Christ given to him by God---- did he say--here me have a revelation?= No-- 2 beings there one is God, one is Jesus--cannot be proven any other way.
