    "I came down from heaven"

    Isn't he the son of Joseph? How is it he says "I came down from heaven"?

    Well, you need to think spiritually(spirit) rather than carnally (flesh).

    "The words I speak are spirit and truth" said Jesus. His words are therefore the words of the Spirit which dwelt fully in him.So what was it(he) who came down from heaven? He (it) was the Spirit of the Father that DECENDED on the son. The words the son speaks are the words of the Father by the Spirit of the Father. And if the Spirit of the Father is the Father, then it was the Father, by His Spirit that came down from heaven whereby the doctrines Jesus taught were not his own (he says) but the Father's.

    What nonsense!

    The Word was with God and the Word was God.... and the Word was made flesh... John 1:1 & 1:14

    So you don't believe Jesus when he tells us that the words he speaks are not his own but the Father's? Or when he says that the works he does are the Father's? Or when his says "of myself I can do nothing"? or when he says the doctrines he teaches are the Father's? Or when he says the words I speak are spirit and truth? Or that the spirit was given to him without measure? Or that Jesus died and God can not? Or that Jesus was tempted in all points as we are and the Father can not be tempted with evil?......the list goes on and on but that should suffice for now.

    Oh btw, a big applause for your intelligent response.
    Is John 1:1 the only verse in the Scripture you think you understand?

    That's not a list. It's just a rambling paragraph.

    Your problem, like many other anti-Biblical, anti-trinitarians is that you fail to understand the TWO natures of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    John 1:1 makes it clear that the Word was BOTH with God and was God. John goes on to teach that this same Word was made flesh. God in the flesh.

    In other places in the scripture it clearly describes the Holy Spirit as God, but the Holy Spirit is neither the Father nor the Son.

    It's just that simple.

    The Scripture NEVER says Jesus had two natures. What's the point of God giving Jesus of His own spirit without measure if Jesus already had the nature of God?

    Some even suggest that Jesus laid aside his deity to become a man so that what? His Father could give to Jesus all that He himself possesses. Talk about nonsense!

    Here's the idea. The son lays aside his Godness to become a man but still retains his Godness. he simply refuses to avail himself of the Godness he has. And in turn the Father gives the son of His Godness in full measure.

    How moronic can one get?

    I never claimed any such thing.

    Questions for you:
    • Was Jesus God?
    • Was Jesus man?

    (Hint: both answers are 'yes')

    Since I don't believe that and since that is NOT what the doctrine of the trinity teaches.... it's completely IRRELEVANT.

    No it does not! And the same verse you interpret to claim the two natures is also the same verse used by MANY Trinitarians to claim that Jesus laid aside his Godness.

    You know the verse. "Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.

    Other translations imply the complete opposite of what the KJV says. Read them for yourself.

    In any case, Trinitarians suggest that that verse proves Jesus was God before becoming man. And if God, he has to have all the attributes of God.

    Would you call them Trinitarians who claim Jesus laid aside his Godness?

    They do so in an attempt to understand how Jesus could rely so heavily on his Father. But yet they can't see the nonsense of their ideas.

    Once AGAIN... those are two different things. I could care less about those that think that "Jesus laid aside his Godness". That has NOTHING to do with the doctrine of the trinity.

    So you can continue to beat the air with your attempted FALSE association, It's irrelevant.

    Do you just "translation shop" until you find one that agrees with your false doctrine?

    Indeed He does have all the attributes of God, since He is God (John 1:1 & 1:14, among many others).

    So what? That in no way invalidates the Biblical doctrine of the trinity. That is just more fallacious logic on your part.

    John 1:1 states that the word was with God and the word was God

    So it is the word, not Jesus, that John refers to. When the word is made flesh then Jesus becomes what the word represents. Jesus is then called the Word of God.

    Jesus did not have two natures. His first nature was flesh and blood man. When he was raised from the dead to die no more his nature became immortal
    That's what to die no more means.

    That is WRONG and anti-Biblical. Jesus was NOT "then called the Word of God". You JUST quoted John 1:1 which says that WORD WAS GOD and yet you think that this "Word" was temporal and not eternal.

    Of course we believe Him. That is why we are "Tri-" "-une." You simply miss HALF of scripture revelation. Don't think we don't agree on a lot of points, it is just that we don't cut off John 1:1 or rationalize John 20:28. You miss a LOT of scripture when you tell God what He can and cannot do. It is human rationalizing instead of scripture-following.

    Two natures what a load of dung that is. You make Jesus to have a split personality.
    Oh let's see .... Well when it wasn't his will to suffer and die he was speaking from his human side?

    if Jesus is called the word of God, then it is a name he is called. That's why the Scripture says "his NAME is called The Word of God.

    Jesus says that he came IN THE NAME of his Father. Jesus has taken on several names of his God and Father.

    Everlasting Father. Mighty God. YHWH. God. The LORD God of Israel....

    Think it not strange because God has done it before. God told Moses that he was sending an angel and that "My name is in him" said God.

    Now some have erroneously said that the angel was Jesus before he was born. However, God tells us this: "to which of the angels said He any time 'you are my son, today have I begotten you'?. The answer is no angel has God said that.

    So how is that Jesus could be begotten from all eternity as Trinitarians claim and have also been the angel whom God placed His name if God has said at no time to any angel "you are my son, today have I begotten you"?

    I'll take your challenge anytime you're ready!

    How bout you start by addressing the many comments refuting Triniarianism i have already posted.

    Or how bout simply start with this one:

    Who died on the cross?

    The Scripture tells us it was the Prince of life, the Christ, Jesus, the son of man, and God's own son who was killed.

    Now, which one is the God who can not die?

    Jesus made it clear that He cannot do anything on His own.

    Jesus is always submissive to His Father.

    Jesus is His Father's faithful Servant and our Brother.


    He also said His Father is greater than He.


    He also said that His Father is His God and our God.

    Trinitarians dismiss all those simple and clear statements of Jesus.
