How to Help a Friend
--
Make yourself available, whether in person or via technology. The goal is the be in the right place at the right time. Although there is really nothing better than being face to face with your friend, they may call you. Don't miss that call.
--
Listen to them.
They're probably trying to tell you something. Somewhere in their words or actions is a sign of what's bothering them. If you're too busy being hilarious or self-involved, you're going to miss it. So, calm yourself and pay attention.
--
Don't be judgmental.
People don't open up to people who are throwing out words like "lame," "stupid," "freak," or "wuss." Just accept everything they say as true. Why? Because they're telling you what they feel. How can you ever say that someone else's feelings are untrue?
--
Realize the process of resolving their problem will likely take more than one day. Be patient. You may have to be really understanding of them for a lot of days in a row. They've probably done that for you too. It's fair.

To BROTHER LEE LOVE:
Have to respond in this manner for space as my original response to your post went over Topix 4000 character limit..........what I would say as you asked me is that it appears that we are on the same page as far as Jesus Christ being the ultimate name in authority as well as the only name that we have any hope in as far as salvation is concerned as outlined in Acts 4:12, however it would seem as far as your conversation with that Atheist goes is that like so many people fail to understand wnd including those who profess to be born again Christians is that the terms Father, Son and Holy Ghost are TITLES of the ONE God and NOT NAMES and when you take a candidate under water for baptism as I've said before calling out the titles and not IN the name of Jesus Christ that is not a baptism because you have only repeated after Jesus and have not done what he actually said to do, it should be no secret that I do not believe in the trinitarian doctrine as the Bible lets us know that there is only ONE God who was manifested in three different ways and not three Gods..........Father in creation, Son in redemption and the Holy Ghost in the church today.
The Atheist that you were talking to very likely as you said was probably only trying to csuse division among you and not really interesting in learning for spiritual edification for himself and all involved in the conversation, our former pastor and overseer once warned us to be careful of how deeply you get into these spiritual discussions with unbelievers as you can end up making yourself upset trying to get the understanding of the Word over to them, they have to be honest and sincere in their hearts for the power of God to work with their understanding.
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving BLL.
I'm afraid I'm not completely understanding you. If I am, then I'm afraid I can't agree with you, entirely.

1) I don't believe that "Father," "Son," and "Holy Ghost," are three, distinct titles for only one "God," unless by "God," you mean our Godhead and not Father.

2) By your above definition, it would seem that you do, actually, believe in a "trinity."

If you would be so kind, I would greatly appreciate it if you could reveal to me your views on the following verses. So you know, I'm replacing certain terms with the appropriate terminology, in brackets. You'll notice that I won't reconcile the integrity of the verses in any way, shape, or form. You'll also notice that all the terms in brackets are taken from their actual uses in verses 24 and 28.

1Corinthians 15:24-28
Then cometh the end, when [the Son] shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when [the Son] shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
For [the Son] must reign, till [God, even the Father] hath put all enemies under [the Son's] feet.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
For [God, even the Father] hath put all things under [the Son's] feet. But when [God, even the Father] saith, all things are put under [the Son], it is manifest that [God, even the Father] is excepted, which did put all things under [the Son].
And when all things shall be subdued unto [the Son], then shall the Son also himself be subject unto [God, even the Father] that put all things under [the Son], that God may be all in all.

You, most likely, know that the above is referring to a future event, which is long after our anointed Savior ascended to be with Father. With this in mind, then isn't it acceptable to, perhaps, think that even now, our anointed Savior is not only distinct from Father "God," but subject to Father "God," still, while in the heavenly realm? And according to the above verses, don't these, perhaps, imply that this subjection will continue afterward?

What say you, my Brother?

Lets see if I can help clear this up, to began with I am afraid that you are misreading me if you think that I stated somewhere that I believe in a "trinity", not in the least and not in two Gods as well, but it is best to quote and print scripture directly as it is read in the Word, although I understand what you are trying to do here but that always run the risk of putting a stumberling block in the way of someone who may be less enlightened in the mystery of the Godhead so again..........lets lrint tbe quotes directly as the bible reads it word for word.

And yes those events in the scriptures that you posted does pertain to a future event, but remember the Word lets us know that Jesus is now at this time the Word that IS God of which he was in the beginning and not the son at this time as we speak as that which was son is who will come back and rapture the church away, later set up his kingdom upon the earth and deliver it up to God the father, you see this is a great mystery of which many cannot see or understand without that spiritual boost from God himself to open up their understanding just as Jesus did for his Apostles so that they could understand the scriptures with a true meaning of it's contents, and so without this being done I can see where the scriptures may seem as if in some regards it is speaking of at two maybe three seperate entities but believe me..........there is only ONE God, ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism and it goes on to say ONE God and Father of all.

And so there there is only one God who sits upon the throne in heaven, and again the son Jesus is currently again the Word who was with and who IS God of whom was once made flesh and blood and walked the earth for 33 and a half years is whom will come back and deliver up the kingdom to the father, does this clear anything up my brother?

<quoted text>Greetings, salutations, and shalowm, Serah.
I'm aware of the commonly accepted interpretation of these "giants," but the truth of the matter is, the actual translation of the Hebrew term (nephiyl, or nephil) means, simply, "tyrant," or "bully," and not some extraordinarily large man at the top of a beanstalk, or guarding vegetables for a kid named "Sprout." But, that's an excellent observation, indeed! By examining the verse, it seems to do more than just imply that these "giants" were alive and well even before these "sons of God" decided to come "into the daughters of men."
And you're absolutely right? Why would he build a whole city for himself, his wife, and their son? Or, why would they call whatever plot of land they lived on, and whatever buildings they built on it, a "city?"
Inquiring minds want to know!
Kudos, Serah.
Cheers, and of course, Happy Thanksgiving!! I heard Obama's speech this morning, and was very happy to hear him say God Bless everyone and to think of those who are less fortunate and perhaps suffering as a result of 'Sandy'..

I didn't really think he was a GOD loving person, somehow, so was happy to hear his words.

The Bible surely gives us much to think about and to ponder on.... and yep, inquiring minds surely want to know :)

But, isn't the doctrine of the "trinity" based on the belief that "God" is only one entity, but revealed in three distinct positions? Isn't this what you believe?

If Father is called "God," and our anointed Savior is called "God," then wouldn't this explain why Father is called "God of gods" at such verses as Deuteronomy 10:17?

No offense intended and I apologize, but I only substitute the terms used with terms that share the exact definition.

From Acts on, our anointed Savior was referred to as "God's" Son more than 60 times. My point is, our anointed Savior had already ascended by this time. Why did the authors of our "New Testament" still refer to our anointed Savior as "God's" Son if he no longer serves as His Son?

Not really, my Brother. And I apologize. I am trying. Consider the following, please and if you will.

John 17:5
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

How is this possible, that our anointed Savior, first, asked to be glorified by Father and had glory with Father while he, according to you, was Father?

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Isn't it possible that the "God" in the center portion of this verse is different from the "God" in the latter portion, explaining why our Father is called "God of gods" at such verses as Deuteronomy 10:17?

John 17:3
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Was our anointed Savior speaking to himself?

1Corinthians 8:6
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

What's the significance of the terms "of" and "by?"

<quoted text>Hey BLL, I give some scriptures much thought, as I suppose many of us do, but Genesis 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch gives much to think about too.
Would one call a home of Father, Mother and Son a city?
And Genesis 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...
Where did the giants come from?
Ahhh, much to think about indeed, and I think that is why I love the Bible so much, it surely swims with time and knowledge :)
Good evening Serah, hope your Thanksgivings day was a Blessed, safe and happy one. You've hit on a subject from the 6th chapter of Genesis that I've always been interested in concerning the giants of olden times, I once had a conversation with my minister on this subject and it opened my eyes to some very common sense facts concerning the origin of their existence.

To begin with many television preachers have eluded to and taught that the giants of olden times were the offspring of a union between the sons of God ( believed to be a reference to angelic beings ) and human females refered to as the daughters of men, and that these angels found them attractive and took some of them as their wives and again the result were these physically huge and gigantic beings of whom some became tbe stuff of myth and legend that may have inspired say Hercules for example, now granted he was just a Greek myth but there may have been someone in history under another name who may have inspired the legend, point is that in this conversation with my minister he eluded that Angels whom are SPIRIT beings and cannot procreate and reproduce flesh and blood beings and God only can do so through the human reproductive system that he instilled in the human biological system, the sons of God mentioned in Genesis were only a reference to the human male.

When I asked him how then did the giants come about he answered that GOD created them like he did everybody else, he did create the gigantic Dinosaurs also, makes so much sense doesn't it? I would like to your response to this as you brought the subject up or anyone else's for that matter.

I might need protection for this one, but don't be deceived by such crafty terminology.

In these United States of southern North America, it's been most common to use the title "God" in a most general way. You see, this nation, as is, was founded, if you will, by Deists. These Deists were more than well aware of the public's most common interpretation of the title when it was used and heard. Therefore, these Deists were more than comfortable using such a general title, because they were more than well aware that the majority of the public would believe they were referring to the "God" of the bible-- Iehovah, or even "Iesus Christ." But, they weren't. In actuality, they, personally, were referring to Lucifer. Now, when I say "Lucifer," I mean not the Lucifer that many believe to be the devil. I mean "Lucifer," defined by the literal interpretation of the term, which is "morning star." The general public wasn't aware of this, of course, and still aren't. So, when you see the motto, "In God We Trust," Lucifer is the "God" being referred to, actually.

Let it be known, I don't know the beliefs of our Commander-In-Chief. But, let us not think, for one iota of a second, that he's automatically referring to the "God" of the bible. I've, personally, heard numerous people from numerous, different religions refer to their primary deity as "God." It is good, though, that he remembered those injured by "Sandy."

When I post scripture I only trying to share with others is all.Not preaching or debating just simple sharing with others.
Must admit I do sometimes get side tracked with not staying within the subject matter being discussed at a given moment.Sometimes wonder off in another area of the Bible.Due my best to respect others in there beliefs.Have a good evening.
