    Division about who and what Jesus was as man seems to pull those with faith in GOD aw

    Why is it that so very many; myself included at times; seem to throw out the things of the Spirit; the things we are to hold to in conversation and communion with other believers, in favor or backbiting, slandering, accusing, and knowingly misrepresenting others when speaking about Jesus; more specifically the divinity of the man Jesus?

    The Spirit that is Christ was the same Spirit that wholly filled the vessel/ body of Jesus of Nazareth/ Immanuel. The Spirit that all is sustained by and all was created and formed through is the self same spirit of GOD. All of scripture references and guides the believer towards what is good; the things of the Spirit. Bickering about if Jesus as man was the literal fullness of the eternal One Creator GOD, or but a prophet there of seems to only be deturing from the mere potential of the works of the Spirit.

    Just opinion.

    Just attempting to start a conversation; perhaps without excessive negativity....or pride.

    peace

    He was with us by indwelling Jesus.

    It was the Father who did the miracles, wonders and signs.

    Both spellings are appropriate are they not?

    Though there will always be some differences in understandings, gifts, and faith perhaps, there should always be genuine attempt to communicate peaceably. If one believes a particular doctrinal issue or difference to be salvific then state such carefully as to not offend or condemn. Show the reasons for your opinion with understanding of scripture followed with actual scriptural reference if needed. We are not to destroy one another, but build one another up. We are not to set traps to cripple even our enemy; so why is such so blatantly glossed over by "believers"?

    I thought that when I first came here, I saw the divisions, but if you look carefully, you will see those that teach the wrong doctrines and gospel. Although we are to rebuke false teachings, I agree that we could all be a little more polite.

    1 Peter: 2. 1. Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2. As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3. If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 4. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 7. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8. And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10. Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 11. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12. Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. 13. Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14. Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 15. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16. As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. 18. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. 19. For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 20. For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. 21. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23. Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24. Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
