Amen....doctrine and dogma do nothing but separate and divide...when the focus is kept on Gods love...His love and our love will flow into the world.

Be Blessed!

Are you saying that God the Father and the Holy spirit are in error?

Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Exd 18:11 Now I know that the LORD [is] greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly [he was] above them.

Exd 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.


Deu 10:17 For the LORD your God [is] God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:

1Ch 16:25 For great [is] the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also [is] to be feared above all gods.

Psa 82:1 [[A Psalm of Asaph.]] God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

Psa 82:6 I have said, Ye [are] gods; and all of you [are] children of the most High.

Psa 86:8 Among the gods [there is] none like unto thee, O Lord; neither [are there any works] like unto thy works.

Psa 95:3 For the LORD [is] a great God, and a great King above all gods.

And these two gems, from our Lord Christ even.....


Jhn 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
Jhn 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;


It's not that there are not other gods.... but that there is ONE God above ALL, and IN ALL that we may be ONE with HIM.

Simply said; children of a King have access to the throne, as we may with our Fathers throne. "IF" we keep HIS ways.

godspeed,

freedom
