    How can the trinity be one God?

    Yes, that's part of it. Col 1:15a "He is the image of the invisible God,..." It means more than appearance. Col 1:19 "For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,..." The word "fullness" is from the Greek word "pleroma" which refers to everything that is appropriate to...

    Bible Study Holy Spirit

    Jesus IS NOT "the very Spirit of God before the foundation of the world." According to scripture, Jesus is God the Word (Logos) made flesh. (John 1:1 and 14) The scriptures make it clear that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are two different persons. Jhn 14:16-16 And I will pray the Father, and He...

    Bible Study Is there any significant difference in bible translations?

    Bible Study Holy Spirit

    That is not correct. The teaching of the Church, in res[ponse to the heretical teachings that the Holy Spirit was less than God or that He was not a "person" is that the Holy Spirit is a separate person (hypostasis) of the Trinity. That is incorrect. God the WORD (Logos) was made flesh. (John...

    What did Christ want to convey through this parable in Luke 14

    Salvation is available to everyone who will believe, repent, and "take up his cross and follow". Everyone is invited to the "wedding feast of the Lamb." Everyone will be given a wedding garment; the robe of righteousness. Wear it.

    Bible Study Jesus in the Psalms

    As I read the Psalms, I often find Jesus revealed. Here's a few. 2:7b You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. 9:7-8 But the LORD shall endure forever; He has prepared His throne for judgment. He shall judge the world in righteousness, And He shall administer judgment for the peoples in...

    What is the best study bible for prophecy?

    That learning comes with a lot of time, a lot of scripture reading, and a lot of prayer. Many imagine that they "have arrived" when, in fact, their journey has just begun. It's good to see so many people at least trying.

    What is the best study bible for prophecy?

    I see that a lot. It's only true if you can discern the "voice" of the Holy Spirit. We've gotten tens of thousands of denominations that don't agree on what the Bible says all claiming to be led by the Holy Spirit. oh well ....:shrug
