For those that don't believe that Christ is part of the Triune Godhead...please take part. I will ask one question for those that adhere to this doctrine.


What did Thomas call Christ?

The Word is with God (Divine Love) That is God's substance.
The I AM is that fragment of God that is within all of us.

When you discover this Truth, you will understand that Jesus is not God, only has a part of God that will eventually merge. We all are like that.

I AM a particulate in eternity sent to define a human personality to an individual. (Your God Fragment) This is how Jesus was able to become LIKE God. He never calimed to be God.

From the present through a time-able future I hope and trust that I will partner with the human of my indwelling and together traverse the long segment of space to eternity. I AM the outworking of perfection in the imperfect aspects of humanity. I AM sent to adjust, to incrementally correct that which is necessary for man to grow and lend and bend his will to the will of the heavenly Father. Though I personally work within a mind, I work within the mind to gradually adjust the thoughts which implement behavior patterns in the human.

I AM that voice echoing thought and words which grate in the human mind. They go against the selfish human will; go against the human indulgences and desires and the animal like behavior patterns. It is my will to never stop loving and co-ordinating thoughts, actions within the human mind and within the outplay of human drama within the brotherhood of men and women. I AM perfect in all ways, seeking perfection within the human mind. Perfection in thought gradually reflects incorrect behavior.


Since I have access to the humans personality chart, I know where a human needs to turn, where a human needs to go and what a human needs to do to grow in my likeness, my love-ability and all other unconditional aspects of spirit. I AM ancient and I AM new, I AM within and I AM you. I Am patient with the mind which neglects, the mind which oversees, forgets that I AM here. I unceasingly work to make my presence known within your mind. I work one step at a time, I get you to pass one test before there is a rest period for the next test.

I AM a still small voice and I will continue to echo perfection from eternity into the present NOW.


When we listen to our God Fragment, we can overcome everything.

"My Lord and my God" (John 20:28) And Jesus did not correct him.

John 20:29-31 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Perfect opportunity to state that Jesus is God.... but nope not here.

I guess that means that Thomas believed that Jesus was the messiah sent from God... the Son of God... Not GOD...

Further, Jesus allowed many to worship Him....idolatry if Christ wasn't deity.

If the only way to worship God is in spirit and truth,,is it idolatry to show reverence to someone with authority, in the flesh? Just wondering. Because that is all worship means.

That may be all 'worship' means to you, but that does not mean that is truly all 'worship' means.

If one shows the same reverence to someone with authority (say, a judge, police officer, clergy) as they do to God then I believe they should consider whether God is getting the glory and honor He deserves.

The funny thing is Thomas didn't say My Messiah the Son Of God, He said My Lord and My God. You should really stick to what scripture is saying. You don't use what you say, just read scripture and see what is there.

So, your guess is guessing what the scriputure is not saying. The scripture is very clear. There is nothing in this scripture that says what you are sayng that you guess that it is.. I am not guessing what I see here, I simply read it, take what is there. It seems people have a time with adding, guessing, or placing what is not in scripture. But like you say, I guess. LOL, stop guessing and read the scripture. Anyway, I'm getting ready for a cruise.. Estoy fuera!!!!
