Re: The washing of feet

Hi FFC, Good catch there. I can't see how Mark 14 and John 12 would be describing different events. Both accounts describe the anointing of Jesus' feet as taking place at a very specific time in his public ministry, the days leading up to the Passover and Feast, his entry into Jerusalem, and the La...

Re: The washing of feet

As August pointed out in context, Lazarus (Mary's brother) had just recently been raised from the dead, by all accounts a high point in the public ministry of Jesus, and part of Mary's actions can be perceived in reaction to the emotions of that event which had only just recently occured. Different...

Re: The Power of Sin

Yes, but you have to keep your faith in Christ in order to be saved, like if you stopped having faith in Christ, you'll slowly drift away from God (the Tree of Life) just like Man's lifespan slowly decreased as they were sperated from God Harry, I think if we had to rely on our own faith to keep us...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

You said 'there is too much debate in this meaning of word 'echad' of this verse alone to use it to prove or to disprove the Trinity'. But that's not true. There is no debate about the meaning of the word, and Deuteronomy 6:4 can be used to disprove the trinity. Apparantly there is debate about the ...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

Yes, let's consider the following: * The Jews say 'We are stoning you for claiming to be God' * Jesus says 'God Himself referred to the judges in Israel as 'gods', and you stone me for claiming to be the son of God?' So Jesus not only points out that THEOS can be applied to men without them being G...

Re: The Power of Sin

I am not sure, but the reason that the sin is passed on may have something to do with the blood, where the blood of Adam was passed on to his offspring. And there are verses talking about there is life in the blood. etc..... Just an idea in process....???? Any thoughts?

Re: The Power of Sin

I had always thought it was because of the sin of one man. Isn't this what paul was referring to here in Romans 5? 12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world , and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men , for that all have sinned: 13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

I have never appealed to Deuteronomy 6:4 in order to define the word 'elohim'. You were the one who raised this verse . You made a false claim about the word echad, just as BW has repeatedly made false claims about the word elohim. I have presented the evidence which demonstrates your errors. Pleas...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

On the contrary, there is no debate about the meaning of the word 'echad'. Standard lexicons note that it means 'one', 'each', 'a certain', 'an', 'once', 'only', 'first', and is the component for 'one' in the ordinal 'eleventh'. In our earlier conversation I referenced: Note how this same word 'ech...

Re: Trinity – What is it?

In order for 'echad' to describe a group of persons which are unified (which isn't actually the trinity, but anyway), the persons would need to be referred to in the text. We know that 'echad' is used in Genesis 2 to describe two persons (separate beings), who become 'one' in a figurative sense (wh...

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...
