Unforgiveable Sin

Matthew 12:32 -NASB 32 "Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. Peace, Bob  (Mar 28, 2017 | post #2)

Hey Twinnies- How can God HAVE a God?

John confirmed that Christ was equal with God: John 5:17-18 - NWT13 17 But he answered them: “My Father has kept working until now, and I keep working.” 18 This is why the Jews began seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath but he was also calling God his own Father, making himself equal to God. Notice this is John's personal commentary, not what the Jews were thinking. So either you have a misunderstanding or Jesus was able to fool John, or John wrote this down wrong.

Does God have a God?

The actualy Greek says the following: HO (THE) THRONOS (THRONE) SU ([OF] YOURS) HO (THE) THEOS (GOD) HO THRONOS SU = Your Throne Where do you get the added word "is" from?  (Mar 28, 2017 | post #48)

Why is there no such place as hell?

Hi NomiMaybe you can explain the verses I posted in post #156. How can the antichrist and the false prophet still be alive 1000 years after being put to death?  (Feb 23, 2017 | post #174)

Why is there no such place as hell?

If hell is nothing more that the final place for the dead, how do you explain the following: Revelation 19:20 NASB And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. The anticrist and the false prophet are thrown alive into thelake of fire. Notice that they are STILL ALIVE 1000 years later: Revelation 20:10 NASB And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Hello BoniSure John fell down in fear, but was John breaking the following command by fearing the wrong one? The First and the Last did not admonish John for fearing the wrong God. Deuteronomy 6:13 "You shall fear only the LORD your God; and you shall worship Him and swear by His name." Peace, Bob  (Mar 24, 2015 | post #419)

Hello BoniProverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. It sounds like John had both Wisdom and Understanding to me. Falling to one's feet is significant. Looking this following passage: Luke 17:15-19 (NASB) 15 Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice, 16 and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, "Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine--where are they? 18 "Was no one found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner?" 19 And He said to him, "Stand up and go; your faith has made you well." If Christ is not God, why did Christ expect them to return Him to give glory to God? Couldn't they have given glory to God AWAY FROM CHRIST? Peace, Bob  (Jan 26, 2015 | post #417)

What is the trinity?

Hello BoniNot sure what you are asking here... Who gives the light? I am assuming you are referring to the source, such as the lamp or the bulb that the light is emanating from. 1John 1:5 (NWT) This is the message that we heard from him and are announcing to you: God is light, and there is no darkness at all in him. This same author also penned the following: Revelation 21:23 (NWT) And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp was the Lamb. Now if the source is the lamp and the lamp is the lamb, who is the lamb? Is the Lamb the source of God's Light? Hmmm.... Here is another interesting passage from this same author: John 12:35-36 (NWT) 35 So Jesus said to them: “The light will be among you a little while longer. Walk while you still have the light, so that darkness does not overpower you; whoever walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. 36 While you have the light, exercise faith in the light, so that you may become sons of light.” God is Light Lamp is the Lamb Light will be among you a little longer Faith in the Light = become sons of Light Does this answer your question?

Hello Boni, Nice to type at you againThere is one more instance and the one John fell at the feet of another before another and this one did NOT deny the worship... Revelation 1:17 (NASB) When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, Peace, Bob  (Jan 2, 2015 | post #415)

Hello DaveThank you for your patience. This response has been a long time coming. I think you bring up a great point that an unknown number of persons can make up a corporation and from the onset, one has no idea of the number behind that entity. I believe even the apostle John had no idea of the number of persons that make up "God". Just look at the number of times he flopped to his knees to worship anyone or thing in Revelation. One time he was even looking at the Father and the Son and STILL worshiped another as if he were another person of God (Rev 22:7). Peace, Bob  (Jan 2, 2015 | post #413)

Hello DaveYou do understand what you are pointing out. I will just add this, because I think you are making my point... When a CEO or president of a corporation speaks about the "Company " doing anything, it is usually in the plural, because a corporation is made up of multiple persons within a single entity. When the corporation is being spoken of in the 3rd person, it is done singularly. Example: CEO Dave Sr. says, "Let us do it." (Plural) President Dave Jr. says "We are doing it." (Plural) Newscast Report Headline, "Dave Inc. is doing it." (Singular) So there are a plurality of people doing "it", but still there is one company doing it also. Regarding God being the engineer only... Job 9:8 NASB 8 Who alone stretches out the heavens And tramples down the waves of the sea; Isaiah 44:24 NASB 24 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, "I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone, Jeremiah 51:15 NASB 15 It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom, And by His understanding He stretched out the heavens.

Hello SchleptikActually the person of the Holy Spirit within us directly interacts with our soul in the communication. It is not like sending a text, but an actual interactive process of communication. Romans 8:26 NASB 26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be utteredI apologize for this. My wife passed away about 6 weeks ago. I still am working through some tough adjustments. Peace, Bob  (Mar 14, 2014 | post #382)

As we all can see we have Matt's selective WTBTS style editing at its best... Actual quote: "What happen to all that self deprecation stuff that {...you are a stupid Schleptik...} and it was over your head?" Sigh... Proverbs 26:5 NASB 5 Answer a fool as his folly deserves, That he not be wise in his own eyes. Bob  (Mar 13, 2014 | post #371)

Hello SchleptikNow you stoop to condescension. What happen to all that self deprecation stuff that you are a stupid Schleptik and it was over your head? The peer pressure got to you hey... That's OK. I understand. But may I just say that if the Trinity is too complicated for you, then I suggest you stay away from defending the WTBTS 1914 doctrine. YIKES!!!! Anyway, I will just wait on Dave and others like him that I truly respect. They at least keep things civil and are honest in their argumentation. Maybe that is why I can agree with them on occasion, be swayed to their thinking on occasion and rethink my positions at times because of the validity of their arguments. Have a good life Schleptik.

Please JW's answer this question about Salvation

Hello TJWandDIVA25Are you born again (regardless of the Jesus you belive in)? If not, then how can you say you are saved to begin with? John 3:3 NASB 3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." Peace, Bob  (Mar 13, 2014 | post #570)
