If the Father is God and Jesus is God then the Holy Spirit is God as well; therefore, the only solution for these to be true and still one God is the Orthodox Christian doctrine to the divine Trinity...jenna wrote:i have admitted to believing what he taught. but as you may recall, he died a good time ago. you say i would find myself before an inquisition board? that is actually pretty poor judgement on your part, seeing as how i do not go to church, anywhere. they probably do not even know i exist.
and you please tell me where, even once, i have ever said that Jesus is not God?
Jenna, who was Jesus praying too?
When Isaiah 43:10 states this: "You are My witnesses," declares the LORD, "And My servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and believe Me And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me." NASB
This sums up what Armstrong teaches written in his book: Mystery of the Ages
So, your either believe as Armstrong that there are two Gods... or one but two... as Armstrong taught.Mystery of the Ages
“Chapter 1: Who and What is God?”
Herbert Armstrong’s teaching quotes from this Link
Once again, Armstrong establishes that not only the world in general, but also all professing Christians do not understand who and what God is. Only Armstrong, to whom God has given the special revelation of truth, knows the answers. The answers are in the Bible, of course, but no one knows how to put the Bible’s jigsaw puzzle pieces together except Armstrong. Consequently, whatever Armstrong says about God must be true.
In Armstrong’s view, which we have learned earlier in the book must be equated to God’s view, there are two Gods: One is God and the other is the Logos, or Word, who was is God. They are composed of spirit, and have the form and shape of a human being. The Logos, or Word, is the one through whom God created the universe and the one who became Jesus Christ, at which time the first God became the Father and the Word became the Son. God is in charge and the Word is under him in authority, but still fully God and of the “God kind.” The two of them are eternal and have co-existed together in perfect love eternally. Together they form the one God Family, and their goal is to create other Gods to join them as part of their God Family.
Jenna, which is it?
Is Deut 6:4 true or not?
Is Isaiah 43:10. true or not?
Below statement - Quoted form the - Rob Bell AFTER Hell - thread
You believe Armstrong, true or not? If true, then you do not believe Jesus is God as the established Orthodox Christian doctrine to the divine Trinity teaches and thus you do not believe Jesus is God but rather another God as Armstrong teaches...jenna wrote:i do not put Armstrong's teachings above God's. I believe his teachings are from god. there is a huge difference here. God used prophets to speak His words to people, John, Mark, Luke, Amos, Timothy, etc, etc. You asked me before, if I think that you are not Christian because you believe differently than I do. I am now asking you that same question. Are you afraid I am going to go to hell because I do not see the teachings of the bible the same way you do?
This is one place you allude to this...
