One Spirit seems to sum up the matter sufficiently, expressions notwithstanding.


Nothing changed but a twirl in your own mind.



Not sure why you have a problem with it other than maybe it being linked to an early sect, again, in your own mind. I think the matter was deliberated sufficiently to come up with a fair and solid assessment.



Don't know how it could be seen otherwise.




Nothing of that sort postured accept again, in your own mind.




Expressions may be more accurate.


Your claim is that the sight is divided. That's not what the construct is a'tall.



Never said anything different but what the scriptures cite, that God was in Christ. 2 Cor. 5:19. Not rocket science.

You posted Scripture, but you didn't post a passage that says there is a being called God that consists of three persons. That's means you are drawing you conclusion based on inferences. As I pointed out the argument you laid out is the Logical Fallacy known as "Begging the Question." Can you present an argument for your case that is not a Logical Fallacy?

The persons is stuck in your own head. As duly noted prior. There is ONE SPIRIT.

Was The Spirit of God in Christ? Absolutely, beyond any doubt. Was Gods Spirit "limited" in Christ? Absolutely not!

John 3:34
For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Colossians 2:9
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Now you're moving on to Spirit. OK, there's one Breath. Now please explain that passage in context so we can see what it means as opposed to your taking it from it's context and imposing your belief on it.

Yes, all the fullness of Deity dwelt in Jesus.

So far you've failed to delineate just exactly what your particular problems are other than just the term "persons." Get specific.

I regret that there was not a willingness to consider biblical evidence in an antagonistic approach to disparage a core tenet of the Christian faith. This is an integral point in the Statement of Faith of CFnet. Honest discussion could have been fruitful. When there is no attempt to discuss with honesty, it is disruptive. There will be no more of this in this thread.
