The Trinity is one God existing in three Persons.(Now don't confuse that with this saying there are three Gods). Being that the word “Trinity” is not found in scriptures, it is a word made by man that is used as a term to "attempt" to describe the triune God—three coexistent, co-eternal Persons who make up God.
:) I'm not the one that is confused! Trinity may not be found in scripture but the implication is and it is very clear to those that read the scriptures.

Why, shore, "Jokster." Try Genesis chapter 6 (KJV):
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.
Mind you -- I am not a Bible scholar like "Norton" is, but when I look at the word "son" and the relationship "sons of God," I figure that Jesus was not God's only "son."
In fact, John 3:16 says as much: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
The word "begotten" means born of a woman. Thus, we see that Jesus was God's only BEGOTTEN son. The rest of them presumably remained in Heaven, until they noticed that the "daughters of men" were pretty cute.
Of course, the "purists" such as "Norton" dislike the idea that God had multiple sons. So, over the years, they have been "cleaning up" that little verse, to get rid of the word "begotten."
Thus, we see that the NIV Bible says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Like so many revisions of the Bible, the NIV ("New and Improved Version") cleans up the messy little fact that (Biblically) God had many sons, and that Jesus presumably had many Heavenly brothers who were never "begotten.
(It is obvious that only one of God's sons had to come to earth in fleshly form to be tempted and die without sin on the cross to redeem mankind of its sins, original or otherwise.)
I agree........you are not a bible scholar! Neither am I! Perhaps I just understand the Bible a little (lot) better than you. Sorry, don't mean to sound snobbish. It's just that you talk about things that you know nothing about. God had ONE son and that is Jesus Christ!(second person of the trinity that was sent to earth in human form)

CHEERS!

<quoted text> ... What does the determinate counsel mean? It means the Trinity, the Triune God, Three Persons yet One, consulted within this Godhead before anything was ever created.... They are co-equal....
What it actually means is that men love to create gods. For it is written:

Man created God in his own image.

Many religions -- Greek, Roman, some Indian religions -- had (or have) multiple gods. The analogy here is that when a baseball pitcher throws a hitless game, he will wear the same cap the next time, hoping that his "luck" will somehow be transferred to his "godlike" (lucky) baseball cap.

Thus, over time, Man creates god after god after god, hoping that all of those man-made gods will keep watch over him.

The Hebrews declared that there is only ONE god, but that doesn't play very well with most religious people who want to be surrounded by all those extra helpful gods.

That is the reason that the Hebrew "God" has been transmogrified into your three-headed Trinity. And the Catholics add in the "saints" and "Mary," just in case.

Whatever gives you a warm fuzzy feeling, I suppose.

Well, he was right. In fact, according to some estimates 96% of you are deadbeat leeches. This is why our country WILL collapse, unless someone takes over and changes the course of our country!...
What actually happened was that former President Jimmy Carter's grandson tipped off the media about Romney's silly fund-raising speech to his base -- the millionaires -- in which he accused 47% of Americans of being "leeches."

You have upped the ante to 99%, which undoubtedly includes yourself and most of the Republican party as being leeches also.

Yeah, "Norton" is totally clueless. Acts 2:22,23 say no such thing. Apparently, "Norton" has learned how to "copy-and-paste" from his apologetic heroes, and has abandoned what his Bible says. Of course, it was bound to happen. And "Norton" didn't understand it anyhow.

So basically you were saying what any first grader should know,,, That we are all the sons and daughters of God. And actually begotten is being the only offspring of its father, a past participle of beget, with beget meaning to be the cause of something, to be the father of a child.
No. In Genesis 6:2 and 6:4, a distinction is clearly made regarding "the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose."

If the meaning was that the "sons of men" saw the "daughters of men," the scripture would have said so.

Why does it upset you religious folks to think that God might have had sons other than Jesus? You don't have a problem with God having created angels. You DO believe in angels, don't you?

Regarding "beget":
1. Merriam-Webster. Definition 1: to procreate as the father : sire.
2. Dictionary.com :(typically of a man, sometimes of a man and a woman) Bring (a child) into existence by the process of reproduction.

(Your allegation that a man "begets" only one offspring is silly on the face of it. You are reaching, "Jokster," but you just can't get it.)

Actually, it isn't a site for free thought and free speech. If Topix doesn't like what you say, they can and will yank it. Just like you are doing in your lecture.

However, the implication of your post is noted Herr Jockster.

Now Dawg if you would let your eyes and brain take in as much as you let you mouth spew out, you would see that Dan has already clarified that "albtraum" is female several hours ago. It seems that like you try to police the room and correct everyone even though the correction has been made, understood and answered hours ago. Just some friendly advice, use your eyes more, your mouth less and you can give those old arthritic fingers of yours a break and not over work them. I am beginning to think you suffer from that disease related to Alzheimer’s,, called Sometimers. Whereas you don't look ignorant all the time, just sometimes.:-)
"Jokster," those are all interesting ad hominem arguments. But like all ad hominem arguments, that ignores the logical argument. And, by implication, means that you have no argument at all.

Let me educate you about cost accounting of inventory sales for tax purposes. There are two basic ways of doing such accounting. The problem is that the "cost of goods," especially for a large inventory, varies according to the unit price at the time of purchase.

Generally speaking, if the unit price of goods bought increases over time (as in an inflationary period, which is usually the case), a better tax procedure would be to use the "LIFO" method. "LIFO" means "last in, first out," which gives a higher accounting cost of goods sold, thus decreasing the tax liability for the lesser accounting profit.

The alternative method is "FIFO," meaning "first in, first out." That generally increases tax liability, since the apparent cost of goods sold is less than it would have been under the "LIFO" method (in the typical inflationary situation).

On Topix, I use the FIFO technique. I go back to the last comment I have read, and progress chronologically to the final comment of the thread. Thus, if some other person makes a comment to a post before I have read the comment to that post, you may find that the other person making the comment may well have answered the question prior to my post.

If you would prefer that I respond to comments using the LIFO method -- tough! I will continue to read, and respond to, comments in the order in which they were posted. It makes my life so much easier and well-organized, even thought that practice may confuse you at times.

Now, what were you saying about "Sometimers"? You appear to have begun suffering from Alzheimers disease yourself, because the actual alternative phase used is "oldtimers," not "Sometimers"! Were I you, I would get myself checked out -- pronto.
