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

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.
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...

Yes, where you stated, "I think it is Church's teaching".
If it isn't, they why make an opinion that it is.
You Catholics seem to be riding the RCC wave on the seat of your pants. Do you always "think" the RCC is teaching something that they don't?
It is obvious with "Jesus being God" - which is false also.
Why don't you believe Jesus?
More importantly, why do you believe men?
I'm not an authority on Catholicism. Even so, if I state something I 'think'( but its outside of Church teaching ) its ok because I'm not serving in a teaching capacity but rather, I'm on a debate forum. Of course, I have a hunch I'm correct in the teaching, otherwise I wouldn't bother stating my opinion on it.

I wouldn't say Catholics 'fly the RCC wave by the seat of our pants'. Rather, I would say we have true faith in Jesus Christ and the Church He started.
You conspiracy 'Christians' have no true faith in Christ. You seem to think He was lying when He said, "I will be with you always until the end of the world".
You think He meant, "I will be with you sort of... but you won't really know my true will until a Bible can be printed and handed out to the regular folks, then you'll figure out on your own what I want"

Even more bizarre.. "some gnostics will come along and use part of this Bible, and add some other weird books and say its me talking....But don't worry, because THEY will have the correct faith, so listen to them"

Creeps.

Somehow the Pope's lawyers will find a way to cover-up for this creep using diplomatic immunity.

Every single Catholic here should pray to Saint Benito Mussolini and thank him for everything he did for his lapdog, the church.

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?
When you want to address my post, I will respond:

Mt 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

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???!!!!

You should understand that you're adding to the Book of Revelation when you imply a 'government seal' or 'the Beast is the Roman Cathlic Church'.
The Beast was the evil Roman Empire that Catholics defeated and converted to Christianity. Catholicism didn't change after the conversion of Constantine. You been lied to if you believe Ellen White.
Anyway, thats not why I'm replying to this particular post.
Sunday was observed from the earliest possible moments of Christianity. It was NOT invented at the Council of Laodicia in 362 AD like your post above suggests.

I read it just the other day thank you.
I don't see how your opinion on the book makes sense. In fact, I believe you added some ideology to Johns words.
When the Roman Catholic Church said the Book of Revelation is inspired by God and included it in the New Testament, they understood the previous wicked Roman Empire was the Whore of Babylon. They defeated them by converting them to Catholicism. Johns Prophecy came to pass.

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.
