Discussion for Galatians 3

  • Brother Daniel FC
    Say Brian, I think you re confusing UNITY with MULTIPLE PERSONALITY: God the Father, Jesus His only begotten Son and the Holy Spirit can think and act as ONE because of their perfect mind but none of them suffer of multiple personality disorder, as you maintain. Read John 17, the most beautiful prayer in the Bible: Is Jesus praying to Himself?

    Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. The unsaved will be under the law, they will be judged by God. Believers in Christ Jesus is not under the law, because we Jesus paid the price on the cross, but it doesn't give us license to break the law or sin.
  • Thembi
    Being justified by faith we have peace with God! No works of the law can make us holy, its amazing that other laws we discard but the law of tithing we continue preach as form of justification.Cursed is everyone who continue in the law and not faith.

    1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. In Context Full Chapter Other Translations 1 John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. God is the Word, God is the Father, God is the Son, God is the Holy Spirit, all persons are ONE
  • Brian
    disciple,its ONE GOD not 1 person. ONE LAST TIME Matt 28:19 "..baptizing them in the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" NOT NAMES! Darn Disciples must have disobeyed the command right from Jesus mouth when they didn't use THREE NAMES! Acts 19:5 "Acts 19:5 "...they were baptized in the NAME of the LORD JESUS." Acts 8:16 "..were baptized in the NAME of the Lord JESUS CHRIST."
  • A disciple
    Brian, Bruce, Irene, and everyone else to whom it may apply; YOU said that the Father, and Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all one person! I stand by the Truth and common sense understanding, that "there are THREE that bear record in heaven; the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one." Not one person, but one in heart, in character, in love, in will, and holy eternal divinity!
