      gen. 1:26.
      The Lord created man in the image of His Divine attributes so that man could share with God the dominion of all else on earth. (Gen. 1:26, 28) That's called impersonation of God's attributes. It could not be in the image of God Himself because God has no image whatsoever. (Deut. 4:15,16)

            True peace is when the things of/in the flesh of man are no longer warring against the Spirit. Evil IS the things that are warring against the Spirit. Just like you exercise a muscle and it gets bigger and stronger, so too does He want an army that has enemies to overcome, because an army that has never been in a battle is weak and untried. Peace

              The Bible teaches that God is one:


              שמע ישראל י-ה-ו-ה אלהנו י-ה-ו-ה אחד


              Hear Israel, Y-H-W-H is our God, Y-H-W-H is
              ONE.

              And you shall love Y-H-W-H your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
              And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart;
              and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
              And you shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
              And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
              Deut 6:4-9

              The Jews until this day fulfill this commandment. Every morning they put upon their arm and upon their forehead their phylacteries, (prayer belts) that consist of black straps with black leather cubes, that contain parchment upon which is written this Biblical text that says that God is one. Upon the doorposts of the houses of the religious Jews there are small boxes or containers that also contain parchment upon which is written that God is one. During the morning and evening prayers the above text is recited which says that God is one.

              This text which says that God is one, is repeated in the NT, see HERE

              Keep in mind that NOWHERE is it anywhere written in Scripture that God is three, three in one, triune, a trinity, or anything like that.

              That should make it quite simple to accept the Biblical fact that God is one.

              So go for it.

              Throw the corrupt traditions of men overboard, and follow what God says.


              "O Y-H-W-H, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in the day of affliction. The Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say: “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.”"
              Jer 16:19
              1 John 5:7 King James Version (KJV)

              7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
              He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

                Nope, only those who deny that the Holy Spirit fathered Jesus.
                Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:18 NKJV)

                But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:20 NKJV)

                  This is unfortunately what most Jews believe about Christians, but it is not true. They are varied in different denominations with their own slant on scriptures, and even on whether or not they love their brethren the Jews. None of it is cut and dried, so you might want to study the core beliefs of the main denominations, so you can better tailor your replies to your audience.

                  And all the Christians don't accept one another either. For instance to most non-Catholics, the Catholics are not considered Christians, nor are the Jehovah witnesses, or the Mormons.

                  The line in the sand regarding them, is drawn around the acceptance of Yeshua being the Messiah and being in their hearts or not, a spiritual rebirth being the deciding factor. Hope this helps you understand. Peace

(Mat. 1:18) Totally wrong from the Scriptures which Jesus always referred to as Word of God aka the Tanach.
                    Your claim about what Jesus meant about his identity is NOT the way YOUR Jewish religious experts understood Jesus when he spoke directly to them. You may barf out a lot of revisionism and cherry picking on TOL but in this instance you are stretching credulity.

                    To see a Creator Son is to see the Father invested in his divine Son.

                    For the most part the Jews of evolved Judaism eliminated earlier plural deity concepts. Your ongoing war against Jesus on this site leaves you too blind to comprehend the truth revealed in the life of Jesus.

                    "Mortal man was never the property of the archdeceivers. Jesus did not die to ransom man from the clutch of the apostate rulers and fallen princes of the spheres. The Father in heaven never conceived of such crass injustice as damning a mortal soul because of the evil doing of his ancestors."UB

                        A divine Father and a divine son is TWO gods, and that is polytheism and idolatry.

                        Only pagans turn a human being into a god.

                          Unbelievable that nowadays still somebody comes up with that falsification.


                          And what about 1 John 5:7? "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one."

                          Well, this looks like a great text to proof a trinity, except for the fact that this is a falsification of your Bible. In the original Greek manuscripts of the New Testament this verse doesn't exist.

                          This text is later added to you Bible, in a desperate attempt to proof a trinity which cannot be proven.

                          The NT has come to us in bits and pieces. A Gospel from here, the letters of Paul from there... The first ones who compiled of this a reliable text of the NT where Westcott and Hort who did so in 1881.

                          In that Greek text of the NT is written in 1 John 5:7; "For there are three that testify"


                          That's all.


                          Followed by verse 8: "the Spirit, and the water, and the blood, and the three are into the one."

                          The whole part about the Father, the word and the holy spirit, and that those are one, doesn't exist in the original Greek text.

                          Nowadays the Greek text of dr Eberhard Nestle is the most reliable text of the NT, and in 1 John 5:7+8 it is exactly the same as the text of Westcott and Hort.

                          You don't have to take my word for it, just ask your pastor or reverend, and he'll confirm these facts.

                          About 30,000 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament have been found.

                          Of those thousands manuscripts that trinity formula is to be found in only four (4) manuscripts, and not one of those four goes back any further than the sixteenth century.

                          Therefore all Bible scholars agree that it is a 16th century falsification. Some say it was a note in the margin which ended up in the text.

                          Therefore all modern Bible translations leave out that part that doesn't belong in your Bible. Some translations put it between brackets, and some old ones like the KJV still have it in the text.

                          Old translations like the KJV are based on the so called "Textus Receptus", and that is based on relatively young and unreliable manuscripts.

                          The textus receptus of the Greek NT is compiled by Erasmus, and published in 1516.

                          The interesting part is that the first edition of the Textus Receptus didn't have that trinity formula in 1 John 5:7. When the church asked him why he didn't put in the Comma Johanneum, he answered: "I have never in my life seen a Greek manuscript which contains it."

                          Then the church showed him one, (the ink probably still wet on it) and in the following editions the comma was included.

                          Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textus_Receptus

                          "Erasmus had been studying Greek New Testament manuscripts for many years, in the Netherlands, France, England and Switzerland, noting their many variants, but had only six Greek manuscripts immediately accessible to him in Basel.[5] They all dated from the 12th Century or later, and only one came from outside the mainstream Byzantine tradition. Consequently, most modern scholars consider his text to be of dubious quality.[7]

                          With the third edition of Erasmus' Greek text (1522) the Comma Johanneum was included, because "Erasmus chose to avoid any occasion for slander rather than persisting in philological accuracy", even though he remained "convinced that it did not belong to the original text of l John."[8]

                          There is no such thing as a trinity, not in the Old Testament and not in the New Testament.

                            The whole Bible, even the NT, teaches that GOD IS ONE.

                            That is an extra-Biblical fabrication of the RC church, in an attempt to cover up their polytheism and idolatry.

                              Bs"d

                              Nobody is released from the law. Gods law stands forever. That is what God said:

                              “So you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I will have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an everlasting ordinance."
                              Ex 12:17

                              "In the tabernacle of meeting, outside the veil which is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons shall tend it from evening until morning before the Lord. It shall be a statute forever to their generations on behalf of the children of Israel."
                              Ex 27:21]

                              "This shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings: you shall eat neither fat nor blood.’”
                              Leviticus 3:17

                              "You shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings."
                              Leviticus 23:14

                              “‘Now if you as a community unintentionally fail to keep any of these commands the Lord gave Moses— 23 any of the Lord’s commands to you through him, from the day the Lord gave them and continuing through the generations to come" Numbers 15:23

                              There is much, much more like this, saying the law stands forever, for all generations.

                              There is no such a thing as: "The messiah will come and abolish the law". It just doesn't exist.

                              And, of course, JC himself also said the exact opposite of what the Christians say:

                              “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
                              Matt 5

                              So also JC agrees: The law stands forever.

                              It is only Paul who comes up with the idea that the law is abolished, but who is Paul that he thinks he can abolish the law??


                              "For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of Y-H-W-H our God for ever and ever.".
