first thanks for the reply, second, I did, apparently you didn't read my post, the question is clear.

the reason, to eliminate the error in many person in the Godhead. and to establish the TRUTH that God is a diversity or the equal share of himself in flesh. understand now?.

so now, your answer, is this one PERSON, the (same one) or Two separate Persons,

John 1:3 "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Isaiah 44:24 "Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself".

no ego involved, nor any math, just answer the question please.

Looking to hear from you.

PICYJAG.

Do you know what I got out of this and I really don't care what verse is considered authoritative or not...I know the bible isn't perfect...but back to what I gained from it..a human body is made up of water, blood and spirit (from above)....aren't we made in God's image? God is like a human body as well...water being the universe, word/blood (life is in the blood) and Spirit. We have 3 parts but clearly are one person..God is no different.

I agree with your finding on God's BODY, which was to Come. and true his body was in the "likeness" of man which is his IMAGE" he took part in our humanity, and we're to be "PARTAKER" of his NATURE, the source of our IMAGE.

scripture, Luke 24:39 "Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have".

PICYJAG.

PS, the word of God is perfect, but the translators are not.

What is PICYJAG? Plus, I know the word is perfect...but like you said the translators are not which means what I said originally...the bible is not perfect.

So, basically your answer is "in order to establish that MY ego trip is better than those OTHER ego trips." Sorry, that's not a reason.

Fine, now tell me why it is important to you to understand this.

First, thanks for the reply, second, the word of God is not the ink and the paper one reads in a book called the bible, no, it's Spirit.

Look I'm going to be out for a few minutes, but we can pick this back up...

I guess it validates to me how important we are to Him. Made in His image.

Interesting. And if you find out your perception is flawed, what difference will it make? I can't for the life of me think why God should care, but I feel it.

See the entire article here & let me know what you think of it:

Introduction to the Epistles of 1 And 2 Clement | Global Impact Ministries | Home
Perhaps they were destroyed because they taught false. EVEN if they support Modalism, do you believe they override the Scriptures that teach the Trinity? If so, why?
