It's futile to ask a theologian dipstick questions. People should know that by now.

Doesn't that make you a book-worshipping idolater, a charge you have often accused us of?
No more then accepting the US Constitution as the basis of all the civil laws in the US. Written by humans, for humans and changed by humans in public debate in an open forum. Just like TEC and its form of government by consent.

There is nothing 'divine' about it. It is a material object without supernatural being or powers. It is a tool used to govern ourselves.

Please use a full sentence these fragents are so disruptive to the discussion.

When did the Holy Spirit leave the Trinity and decline being God?

Christ Jesus is ‘the Word of God’. Are you saying that He is superior to the Holy Spirit?

Didn’t Christ Jesus Himself promise that the Holy Spirit would govern the church until He returned on Judgment Day?

Did the Holy Spirit no manifest His control of the church on the First Pentecost as foretold by Christ Jesus?

For an ‘orthodox Christian’ you hold views that would have had your burnt at the steak of Hold Mother Church in earlier ages. Of course, there are people out there now called Evangelicals that would glad burn you today if they could find a legal way to do so.

Why do Evangelicals continually attempt to separate the unity of God found in the Mystery of the Trinity. It makes me wonder if you actually accept the Trinity as an article of faith. That certainly would undermine your stand as ‘THE ORTHODOX” Christians.

The Holy Spirit is within us all.

My Trinity concept is simple. The Candle is GOD, the Flame is Jesus and the light which comes from it is the Holy Spirit. It makes a very "hard to wrap your mind" around it thing somewhat easy to understand.

That sentence makes it divine?

Any novel that has the word 'God' is holy?

LMAO!

You have gone totally crazy at this point. What on earth makes you refer to the "Declaration of Independence"?

You comment is a total a complete non sequitur. TRINITY equal God. That is something even you should be able to grasp but I am beginning to have doubts that even that is too much reality for you to grasp.

"It did not establish a structure of government and should not be confused with either the Articles of Confederation or the Constitution of the United States. For the American colonists, the declaration was an announcement to the rest of the world that the colonies were independent from Great Britain; it also provided a rationale for this action ..."
... a rationale that led to the US Constitution as both were written by Jefferson et al.

That's "two steps," and if you can't distinguish between two and three, you best see to your own meds.

What does any of this have to do with my original point that you are an idol worshiper?

What does any of this have to do with you have no statement of faith to offer us?

What this shows is that the serpent is alive and well and presently in the form of Mr. Null Set aka 0+0=0.

Talking to yourself?

My "original point" is that you're a hypocrit.
