    I disagree with this statement to the extent that it is taken out of context. But that's a topic for another thread.

    and He says He and His Son are One and the Same
    Scripture does not say this.

    Jesus said the He and the Father are one, to be sure. But He did NOT say that He and the Father are the same. Don't fall into the same trap GT has fallen into.

    Yes, "one" can mean the same.

    But is one crowd of people the same person? or is it multiple individuals?

      And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. -- John 17:5

      God shares His Glory with NO ONE. Jesus MUST be: GOD!!!
      "That man of sin must first be revealed." -- Jesus

      If you haven't tried: you've already failed. -- Aimiel

        If God says Jesus is His only begotten Son - conceived by and borne to a virgin - and He says He and His Son are One and the Same - who can argue with that?
        What we do know is that, Jesus (God in the flesh) was human. How do we know that? THE SCRIPTURES!

        I appreciate your three replies, but I cannot accept the Trinity.

            I accept the Trinity in a particular way. You don't have to accept it every way that you hear it. Compare what you hear to Scripture.

              No, I do not believe that it is true. I have participated in many threads on this subject and do not see the benefit of continually repeating what I have discussed. I believe that there is one God, Yahweh, God the Father, and that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Unlike some Unitarians I do not believe in the pre-existence of Jesus, but that he is literally the Son of God because God the Father is His father in the conception / birth process and Mary was His mother Matthew 1:20-21, Luke 1:34-35, John 1:14. Just as any child that has been born, we do not think of the child pre-existing, so with Jesus He was conceived and born and grew in wisdom and understanding Luke 2:40,52. He was made a little lower than the angels, of our human nature Psalm 8:5-6, Hebrews 2:14 but throughout his life he was without sin and his exceptional character of being full of grace and truth is attributable to God being His father and Mary his mother a descendant of David, and the education and care given to him by God His father and Mary and Joseph, and Jesus' exceptional and wholehearted trust in God.

              Kind regards

                Well confusion just reigns with you then.

                The preexistence of the Word that was God is undeniable. John makes that clear. John also makes it clear that the Word was made flesh.

                Jesus is the Word (that was and is God) made flesh

                These things are true whether you: believe it; accept it; acknowledge it; etc. etc. etc.

                  That seems reasonable enough. Thank you. It sounds like you just do not believe in the preexistence of Christ.

                    I considered John 1:1,14 in Posts #18 and #60. No need to repeat again.

                      Of course there is... your "consideration" is not worth the electrons that it took to post that nonsense. That scripture is crystal clear and yet you do not understand it and attempt to pervert its meaning.
                      • The Word WAS GOD.
                      • The Word was made flesh.

                      Only someone that does not want to believe scripture can miss this.

                        Do you believe that Jesus was anointed as the Christ?

                        "Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:1-4)

                          Yes, and He is now exalted and has been made both Lord and Christ sitting at the right hand of the One God, His Father Psalm 110:1,Acts 2:34-35,36.
                          "Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:1-4)
                          The Rock in the wilderness was a literal Rock existing there before Moses struck it. You must have a wild and vivid imagination to believe that the so-called "pre-existent Jesus" transformed Himself from the Second Person of the Trinity into a literal static Rock in order to allow water to pour forth for a number of years. Rather the language is figurative, depicting that He is the source of the Water of Life NOW. The Rock thus represented Christ, just as nearly every other object in the Tabernacle represented Jesus. He is the Lampstand, the Bread, the Incense Altar, the Vail, the Ark of the Covenant, the Mercy Seat, the Rod that Budded, the Most Holy.

                          Kind regards
