As does Quin, myself and many others here. You aren't that special.
Your previous posts very much reveal that you have no real understanding of anything pertaining to God.

What I meant by my earlier post is that Jesus is God the Son... that He has and always had (even before the earth was formed) his own uniqueness from God The Father. But being sent to make atonement He became the Son of man also and you know that story goes.

So being that the Son of God became the Son of man He could tempted by evil... but God, His Father, cannot be tempted by evil nor does He tempt anyone to do evil. In my understanding God the Son isn't and was never God The Father... He has always simply been God's Son.
In case you missed my reason for addressing your post, I only wanted to add to what you had already stated. I'm in total agreement with you on this particular subject, though.

In my experiences, I've met many people that believe that our anointed Savior was not actually tempted because he was susceptible to sin as we are. In my humble opinion, the doctrine of the "trinity" is responsible for this most erroneous belief. I find it most important, though, that people understand the dire consequence if such a thing was true, hence my reason for addressing your post.

As I've learned and believe, Father is Father and His only-begotten Son is His only-begotten Son. The Holy Spirit, as I believe, is as natural a part of Father as sight is a perfectly functioning eye. I don't believe in any so-called "trinity," but I do believe in a Godhead, consisting of both, Father and Son. I do believe it's appropriate to call our anointed Savior "God," though, as Philip did and without rebuke. But, only Father can be called "God of gods," as it's written at Deuteronomy 10:17.

Scriptures do prove that many share the title "God/god." Among these are Father, our anointed Savior, angels, and mere men. In my humble opinion, the confusion, these days, are in people's unwavering confidence in the translators, especially those of our English versions. Most don't realize that the term and definition of "God/god" are identical in the original texts, therefore the only distinction is in the context and content of the surrounding verses. Also, the beliefs and convictions of the translators themselves are responsible for the capitalization, or lack thereof, of terms such as "God/god" and "Spirit/spirit" throughout the bible. It's for this very reason the term "Easter" appears at Acts 12:4 and not that actual, literal, and most proper translation, which is "Passover." In conclusion, though, my assertions here are only a portion of my beliefs as to why people believe as they do.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

<quoted text>You're going to hell without accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour is my point.
I accept Jesus as the atonement for all mankind.

You seem to be unable to repent and redeem yourself through Jesus.

I fear that after your final heartbeat you will hear the words "I know you not." .

<quoted text>Not a problem Sis.. did you leave from "way out" in Myrtle Beach to come around this region to meet? It would be nice if an interstate highway went straight into Myrtle.
I could go up to Florence where I-95 is....I just saw a story on how the army accidently dropped an atomic bomb on Florence in 1958. So lucky it wasn't armed. If it had been there could have been a Hiroshima here in SC. The only damage was a home and barn damaged (no one was killed)

<quoted text> I'm sorry D but you have made sooooooooooo many more errors than you probably realize, I don't believe you really have any clue my friend.
You call every thing that doesn't support your opinion an "error".

I am sorry that facts and reality don't support your opinion.

You think that the Bible is perfect and if anything contradicts it is wrong. So, please show me the four legged birds, unicorns and dragons that are mentioned in the Bible.
Were there really unicorns and dragons ?
Is mustard the smallest seed ?
Is the mathematic constant PI equal to 3 ?(1 Kings 7:23)
etc.

<quoted text>
Thank you. I am glad you noted that.
Jesus never called God, "My father". He always said, "My Father"
It is quite obvious from the following from John:
"Jesus said to her,“Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them,‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
What he meant was that he was GOING BACK to the Father. The word "ascending" appears to have been added or forged in later.
In John 14, there is no talk about ascending to the Father. It is all about 'going back' to the Father.
"gong back" or "ascending" are both terms that simply mean "dying".

All Spirit of God returns (goes back, ascends, etc.) to God upon death. The nephesh ceases to be and the clay returns to clay and the spirit returns to God. All based on Genesis in the Hebrew original.

My comment was that most Christians do not consider the JW's to be Chrisitans.
Over my head, that went! I apologize, then. That explains why you quoted "real christians." And it's true, what you said. Most so-called "Christian's" don't consider "Jehovah's Witnesses" to be any part of Christendom. In my humble opinion, those that make such critical remarks are the same that would have ran to our anointed Savior to complain, "Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us!"

I like JW's by the way. I have spent a few afternoons discussing scriptures with them.
I do, too, even though I don't entirely agree with all their prescribed doctrine. They are a most studious bunch, though.

<quoted text>Shrink,why are you arguing with that child of Satan?! Just as the book of Job mentioned an ocassion when Satan also came along one day when all of the faithful angels went before the Throne of God to themselves before the Lord,so also this 'g-d' character comes to this christian forum,even though he knows he's a child of the devil trying to use this 'ocassion',or christian forum,to VAINLY present his case. He's an evil,unrepentant son of Satan who has no conscious about speaking evil against the Holy Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ. That's why I don't WASTE TIME trying to respond to his silly posts. I dismissed him and his 'illogic' long ago.
let me correct.i am not Shrink
but I am with you,
I don't argue with this rotten seed of satan poster G
I just state,start and ansume without of waiting for respond from this spiritualy dead croock

That you can't grasp a single thing posted by myself or Quin demonstrates that you are the one requiring an education in history, theology, Judaism, Hebrew, Greek, logic and Christianity.

<quoted text>Same to you Sis. My plans didn't go exactly the way I wanted them today... but I did spend more time with my little ones so that was a indeed a blessing. They grow up sooooo fast.
Whoa !! Putting on the brakes here LOL -- I see my name tossed in here -- even if I'm a bit just personality as Dar puts it - I can answer to being addressed.

I clicked on the thread and just started reading and you guys are amazing all of you -- I see a couple jabs here and there but respectfully and responsible posts that is really bringing the Word -

And I never underestimate the intelligence of Dar -- he brings forth honest questions that I see are being addressed to the very best of your knowledge and Scott and others -- I'm just taking everything in and enjoying my time here.

I don't judge people by thir beliefs but by the way they act out those beliefs.

I have found most people from all faiths to be loving, friendly and decent.

Thanks Scott.....I remember you talking about your Momma. And when she got sick and had to go in the hospital. When my dad went in to the hospital he was gone within a month. He went downhill fast. I know you know how I feel too Scott....When we lose our parents we lose our past.

<quoted text>Hi,Sweetie. I was reading some of your posts,earlier today,and I began to REALIZE that we hadn't spoken in awhile. Well,if you've been keeping your distance from me because of my sometimes 'miltant views',I understand. Anyway,it's becoming obvious that we're living in the very last of days,or maybe I should say,years or decades,before the Lord Jesus Christ breaks through the clouds to reveal His awesome glory before a convicted world. But I want to say this,it's normal that people would 'hope' for a political leader who can help to make a nation,or the world,a much better place to live in,with a social and economic playingfield that's much more level. And it seems obvious to me that's what Barack Obama has set out to do. Nothing wrong with those types of aspirations. But I also believe that the way he plans to go about it will,basically,'sell out' America to the United Nations. Hateful,envious nations aren't the only ones with their eye on America...Satan the devil is watching also. And if America continues to ignore it's obligation to the Lord,you can expect the powers of hell to visit this land in ways that many couldn't have ever imagined.
Doc I have never kept my distance from you my friend due to your political, faith, or as you say militant views -- I love reading your fact findings and opinions on different subject matter.

I think we both fall within the same views as to the end times are near and the stage is set and the puppets are all in play -- just a matter of the acts to fall in place which will occur all in Gods perfect timing. The chess board has to aquire a few more kings to put into play -- LOL

Happy Thanksgiving I do hope you and your family share a blessed day. TLC -- Granns

You bet I will, Sis. It's good to see you. You know sometimes we sit around and mope only to be introduced to another who is in worse shape than we are. I guess that could be God's way of showing us just how blessed we are. Life's just too short to whine and moan all the time. So I just thank God for what He's provided and hope that I don't miss an opportunity to be a witness when I should.
Just keep on keeping on Bragging on God!
Absolutely Drew -- Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family - look forward to hearing more from you when you can -- TLC - Judy
