Re: Trinity – What is it?

Fortigurn, I understand your concern. Maybe this little break in things can help us to step back and consider what we are posting and how we are reacting to others posts before putting anything forth. I have no authority here, but I can see that you and B.W. are intelligent individuals through whic...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

This will fortunately be brief, since BW hasn't said anything new. * 'I took on the role against majestic plural nouns': Here's the problem - you have both opposed majestic plurals, and supported majestic plurals. You need to decide which view you hold, and stay with it. * 'Next, I should also shoul...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

Please permit me to humbly intercede. Let's all take a deep breath. Zoegirl is right...this thread is definately getting ready to derail if something is not done. I did mention something which could be done. You could replace BW with someone who is better informed on the subject. Temperatures, as w...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

He had a China doll on the other forum and I assumed... well my bad! Actually it's a Korean cartoon character. At eh heart of the issue, you guys disagree with what the word means. At the heart of the issue, we disagree with what the word means because I am using standard lexical sources to demonst...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

I am going to suggest in all seriousness that if the other moderators want to see the trinity defended properly that someone else take over from BW. He is making so many errors in both English and Hebrew grammar that he is doing you absolutely no favours. First the list of mistakes you've made in th...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

DeuT 6:4 "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one ! This word (one) comes from the Hebrew word “'echad” and can mean, “compound unity.” Sadly, some religious movements have tried to use this Scripture to teach their “oneness” movement. However, this verse could have easily been tran...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

Large sections of your post are incoherent due to grammatical errors in English , let alone your grammatical errors with Hebrew. For example, the phrase 'To simply say that a plural noun is numeric' doesn't make any sense. You explained what you meant by 'numeric': By numeric I mean what you wrote q...

I hope they do some more. I thought those were great, and so incredibly true.

Re: Trinity – What is it?

+ Fortigrun, this is an example of how you deal with things. You try to get people off topic by ramblings like this. It is neither rambling nor an attempt to get you off topic when I point out that you are accusing me falsely. If you are a moderator on this forum, you have a responsibility to addre...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

I have never, not once, ever, claimed that Trinitarians are tri-theists, or that they teach tri-theism. Nor have I made any 'attempts to smear Trinitarians in the light of Tri-theism'. If you are going to accuse me of this, please at least present the evidence that I have made such claims. Well you...

Re: Sam Harris - "10 myths -- and 10 truths -- about atheis

He starts off with the fallacy of the appeal to misery (well boohoo, go stand in the corner and cry). 1) Atheists believe that life is meaningless. On the contrary, religious people often worry that life is meaningless and imagine that it can only be redeemed by the promise of eternal happiness beyo...

Re: The Evidence For Jesus

I checked with the author that I quoted from and his explanation was that the oldest " written " archaeological find was the The Larsa Weld Prism (dated c. 2170 B.C.) The key to the 2200 B.C. date was if it was written or not. All the finds dated prior to 2200 B.C. did not have a written language, ...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

Three - Let me clear the air - The Doctrine of the Trinity is not Tri-theism. In the past and recent discussions there are those that attempt to prove the doctrine of the Trinity as Tri-theistic. This will not be tolerated at all on this form's discussion. Trinitarians are not Tri-theists nor do th...
