Diety. Do you believe Jesus is divine? If so, how many "divine deities" are there?

The SDA cult emerged about a 150 yrs ago under some lady named Ellen White. She was successful in manipulating people to believe the previous 1,700 yrs of Christianity were in error because they observed Sunday. For some reason, she thought Christ didn't guide His people in truth and secretly waited to reveal His true ministry to her.
Oh yeah, Ellen also thought the Apocalypse was imminent after she read the Catholic book of Revelation.
Yea Boy that CATHOLIC BOOK of REVELATION is a tell all for sure. Has quite a bit to say about your Church as well. You need to read it sometime.

Thank you by the way. That is what I want to be a JEW one inwardly/spiritually. You do know our Saviour was a Jew do you not.

Romans 2:29.

But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Answer the question:
Does that mean that a man and woman whom God has joined together are the same person????!!!!! Is that person the man...or is that person the woman???!!!!
Oxbow

A marriage is a vow shared by a man and a woman, like two oxen are yoked together to pull a plow. One cannot make a mold and put two oxen in it and melt them together. Marriage is not a mold into which two people are poured like a liquid or melted by fire together to make one person, by God. Breaking the vow is forbidden.

What does that have to do with the price of eggs in China???!!!!
Nothing to with the Chinese eggs, but it is what Jesus was referring to in "John".

One could also surmise that if Jesus "saw Satan fall from the heavens" ("Luke"), it could also mean he was in Spirit form as well, witnessing this event occurring.

Jesus spoke of the Spirit - and did so, in all he spoke of. Nothing more, nothing less. And surely nothing to do with him "paying for our sins".

He spoke of the Spirit and how it transcends this world.

What else don't you know, that I can enlighten you upon?

Really?

Stop and re-read your questions?

Do you think anyone on this planet has the capability of "knowing what God can or cannot do"?

If you do, you are deluded, lying, and just downright ignorant.

I have already answered the first question.

I have no way of knowing how many divine deities are there. Consider:

Deities of all kinds, throughout history, have been sort by many to assist them and others in all walks of life. From time beginning Gods and Goddess were/are worshipped and honoured, believing that by honouring these divine beings by way of prayer, perhaps gifts and rituals answers would be found and all would be well once again with the sun rising once more. Perhaps a good harvest would be produced, or a hunt would go well, or the answers on how to cure a sick person would found etc. Divine Deities were, in both ancient times and now, sought for guidance, answers in this reality, along with answers to the great mysterious of the world or attaining enlightenment.

Emmanuel is a name of Christ....
God and Christ cannot be one: example: Christ is praying to His Father:
And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
If God revelaed God as three distinct persons, then it is easily possible....All things are possible with God.

If one of the three distinct persons of God became a man, then a man may pray to God, and God may reveal His Will to the man.

Even after you post this, you still think your "God" is exclusive?

The "only reason" that you Protestant "bible only buffoons" are on this Catholic Forum is to attack our personal faith and Salvation in Jesus Christ and His One (and only) True Apostolic Catholic, PROVEN, AUTHENTICATED AND VERIFIED for over 2000 years, both biblically and historically.---You came here (with vengeance) searching for Catholics to condemn, pass your personal opinionated judgement, hate and hostile "venom" against Jesus' ONLY True Church which was, is and will (always) be One Universal Catholic Church. The fact is that there is "not one Catholic" on this forum,(or ANYWHERE) that would "go searching" for a Protestant topix forum with the "one and only intent" of trying to attack the faith of Protestants. WHY?? Because there is "no need too"! We ALREADY have the TRUTH of the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the bible and of the words of Jesus HIMSELF--in Matthew 16:13-21 regarding HIS One True Church and the TRUE WORDS of Jesus in the Eucharist __John 6:47-59 regarding His "true body" and "true blood". AGAIN---we already "have the TRUTH" and you Protestants have been "rejecting "the TRUTH"" over and over again,(using your own "personal appointed" Popes for over 500 years. We, as Catholics< already "KNOW, possess, and adhere to the FULLNESS OF THE FAITH and the FULLNESS OF THE TRUTH, in and through Jesus Christ, in the Church that Our Lord (formed, and initiated) which is HIS One True Catholic Church. Until you come to TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ (in and through His One True Church, you will (continue) to remain on the outside of the TRUTH "always looking in"!!!!!
The only way for Catholics to even think they refute the truth -- chant and attack all others.

Why are you in hated Protestant America instead of "spiritually superior" Catholic America to the south?

The Scripture says...plain as day "Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh."

However,we both know that they are not, literally, one flesh. You cannot face this truth, because, to do so, you would have to admit the same logic applies to "I and my Father are one".

I showed you the teaching on this matter by the Catholics....they teach Christ is the Incarnate Son of God....not God. I showed you that the pope approved NABRE, on Joh 10:30, does not teach that Christ is God. Several Scripture that shows God saying that Christ is His Son...etc etc...
