And I very much agree that it is God calling Jesus God...(Hebrews Chapter 1) though I my beliefs extends to God The Father talking about His Son...

Here is another script where Peter was talking to the Sanhedrin:

Peter: "The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead—whom you had killed by hanging Him on a tree. God exalted Him to His own right hand as Prince and Savior that He might give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel. We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”

Five presidents of the United States were Unitarians: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Millard Fillmore, Thomas Jefferson, and William Howard Taft.

Good Morning Annie, thanks for looking that up for me. I remember a documentary about it but got it wrong I guess. Here are a couple quotes from John Adams though, 2nd President of the U.S.

1. "The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity." – John Adams

2. "The Europeans are all deeply tainted with prejudices, both
ecclesiastical and temporal, which they can never get rid of.
They are all infected with Episcopal and Presbyterian creeds,
and confessions of faith. They all believe that great Principle
which has produced this boundless universe, Newton's universe
and Herschell's universe, came down to this little Ball, to be
spit upon by Jews; and until this awful blasphemy is got
rid of, there never will be any liberal science in the world."
(Adams, Letter to Thomas Jefferson, January 22, 1825)

It's from a Christian website so it's definitely biased in one direction... but I commend you on your pursuit of reading the Constititution and knowledge of certain presidential facts... Have a good one Annie.

If the Trinity was important to know (let alone true) don't you think Jesus would have explained it. Paul doesn't even explain it. It must not be that important to salvation.
No, it's not essential to Salvation. I can tell you though that I recently converted from believing that doctrine... probaly a year more or less. It was a strong part of my psyche at one time and is for most Trinitarians. And because of that, it's a delicate subject to try and dance around...

Dear God, Thank you for all the children in the world. Every one is precious, a heritage and gift from you. I pray for protection, guidance, good health, loving families, positive role models, and many blessings upon these children. So many are mistreated. Others are covered in love. Some are spoiled, others have nothing--not even bare necessities. Please reach out and touch them all, and meet every need in the way you see best. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Today's Prayer

Dear God, I pray that out of your glorious riches, you may strengthen me with power through your Spirit in my inner being, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And I pray that I, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge; that I may be filled to the measure of all your fullness. In the name of Jesus I come and trust you, amen.(Based on Eph 3:16-19)

Nah, it was just the author trying to convey the Gospel of Jesus to pagans. Did you open that link I sent a few days ago? The one about the lady saying, "I speak Jive" (from the movie airplane).
Anyways, he was trying to talk in their language as much as possible.
He was not only talking in their language but in their religion's cosmology and dogma. Not a substitute for Genesis. The Hebrew Scriptures of Jesus does NOT place 'word','logos' and certainly not Jesus at 'the begining'.

Hi Serah,
But you do have Coles, and IGA ...we have IGA, and I never knew what I-G-A meant until now ...and I see CostCo is trying to get a foot in the Auzzie door also.

Anyway, I looked at Coles and IGA hoping to find frozen sweet potato pie ...I found none. I don't know if either is close to you as one must insert their zip code to find the closest store and review the ad's.

So you're just gonna have to make one ...cus ya'll do have sweet potato's. So get yourself a couple of them "sweets" and find a recipe you like ...Foodnetwork.com for instance, or one of these ladies will send you their favorite I'm sure ...check with Epi, TG, Gramms, AnnieJ, etc.

I saw ya'll do have zuchini bread but we generally bake it "loaf" style whereas the Coles recipe had it in a round pie pan. That's how we generally do corn bread. At least that's been my experience.

Anyway ...get you some sweet potato pie, you'll love it. Try it with whipped topping also.

Enjoy ...

<quoted text>No brother, it's not error. It's simply your own self-admiration, denominational interpretation and mentally conditioned beliefs that's rising up and causinig fire in your bones... and my interpretation and beliefs that is contrary to that in where we differ... that's all it is in a nutshell.
But you are right when you say that the doctrine of the Trinity is an error, but you are in error yourself calling Jesus God the Father. He was always the Son, never the Father. Sorry, but that is the way it is.
If I don't respond in kind to any further posts regarding this matter is only because this post was only a reply to you saying my interpretation was an error. Fair is fair.
Wrong bro, it is the spirit of God that rises up in me to recognize the error in interpretation that tries to seperate the Godhead into two let along three seperate beings when he is clearly only ONE God only, it is very clear and distinctive in his Word stirring you right in your face, ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, THE WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD THAT CREATED ALL THINGS AND THERE WAS NOTHING CREATED THAT WAS CREATED AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US, and I am not the one who is stuck on a part of the Godhead being feminine or compromising Christ by refering to him as the "Son of Allah", I am merely rooted and grounded in what I believe and Blessed not to be carried away by every wind and doctrine, and "denominational mentality" as you call it does not exist within me, I can see Christ as both the son given and the everlasting FATHER.

I truly understand the difficulty in accepting that more than one "God" exists, as this seems to exceed the definition of "monotheism," but allow me to explain to you, that this is a most simple misunderstanding. "God" is a title.

"Monotheism" is a simple and accurate definition, for the most part, but the concept of the "trinity" has corrupted the meaning, and in turn, confused the minds of men regarding "God."

FOR THE RECORD: The belief that our Godhead consists of only one deity, but functions as three, distinct individuals, is "trinitarianism." In other words, to say that before our anointed Savior was born of a woman, he was Father, and while he walked among us, he was the Son, and after Pentecost, he was the Holy Spirit, this is identical to, if not the actual, "trinitarian" concept of "God."

If anything, monotheism proves that only one supreme deity exists. For the sake of understanding, I'm going to use the original rendering every time it's used in the verse, complete with it respective reference number.

NOTE: Every time the term "LORD" is used in all capitals, as I've done here, this is the translator's substitute for the actual name of Father, "YHWH," commonly referred to as the "tetragrammaton."

Exodus 20:2-3
I am the LORD thy ['ELOHIYM H430], which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other ['ELOHIYM H430] before me.

Notice, please and if you will, that it's not commanded that we have no other gods after, or beneath our LORD, but before Him.

Exodus 22:28
Thou shalt not revile the ['ELOHIYM H430], nor curse the ruler of thy people.

Notice, that even mere men were called "'ELOHIYM" in this verse. To prove this, we need not look any further than Acts 23:1-5. This says, "And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before [THEOS G2316] until this day. And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth. Then said Paul unto him,[G 2316] shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law? And they that stood by said, Revilest thou [THEOS G2316] high priest? Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people."

Deuteronomy 10:17
For the LORD your ['ELOHIYM H430] is ['ELOHIYM H430] of ['ELOHIYM H430], and Lord of lords, a great ['EL H410], a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward.

Just the mere fact that this verse declares that 'ELOHIYM is 'ELOHIYM of 'ELOHIYM proves, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that other 'ELOHIYM were not only recognized, but accepted, or this verse would be blasphemous. Notice, too, please and if you will, that this verse is about our LORD. And again, when "LORD" is used, this is to indicate that it's Father "YHWH."

Now, the following verse, I'm going to share, first, the Hebrew rendering.

Psalm 8:5
WATTEHASSEREHU ME'AT ME'ELOHIYM WEKABOWD WEHADAR TE'ATTEREHU.

Hopefully, we all notice that the term "'ELOHIYM" is again present in the verse. Now, I'm going to use our English rendering the Hebrew term, and them, after that, the whole English rendering.

Psalm 8:5
For thou hast made him a little lower than the ['ELOHIYM H430], and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Psalm 8:5
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Yes. Even here, the term "'ELOHIYM" was not a reference to Father, but rather, to angels.

With all this in mind, we must, if anything, ask ourselves "Why?" How does the above hold up our current belief of monotheism?
