    Truthseeker: The Godhead: The Holy Trinity, is one, but Three Different Persons. At the Moment, God the Holy Spirit is on the Earth, while God the Father and God the Son are both in Heaven. At Present, God the Son Sits at the Father’s Right Hand Pleading and Making Intercession for us, Christians.(When the enemy accuses us of our Sins) Jesus reminds The Father of: Trial:Suffering: Death: Burial:

    Who has faith to survive every doubt. Noone alive on earth at present, I suspect. The mind can't wrangle it, the heart grows faint in hardship. The world clamors out its dismay, Teachers scramble for the exits when tried. The the Word exists. Someone wrote it. Some human(I imagine) sat down to record things he, or she observed. Faith is personal, for it is no less than a relationship w/God.
