Discussion for Galatians 3

  • 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!
  • A disciple
    "If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, [even] the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothing, but sick about questions and strifes of words, whereof comes envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth... from such withdraw thyself."
  • Brian
    disciple, so then apparently Jesus Christ was confused in John 14:26 when He said the FATHER would send the Holy Ghost and He must have corrected Himself then in John 16:7 when He said HE would send it instead? And in Matthew 18:20 apparently we are to expect Jesus Christ in the FLESH to sit with us as we gather and NOT the HOLY GHOST. And I'm twisting scriptures? Listen to JESUS CHRIST...
  • A disciple
    Brian; NO! Jesus does NOT identify Himself as all three persons! You yourself read and write out the Scriptures; but twist them out of context to fit a false teaching! But there is a vast number of misguided and deceived; just as the Lord said there would be. If the another gospel can take you off on something so strange; it goes together that the same folks don't get freed from their sins either.
  • A disciple
    Very interesting group of Scriptures, Steve! There is where men are defiled, and defiled means unclean and so unfit for the presence of God...and that in the very thing men without understanding hope to find acceptance of God! One who is offended in Christ, yet tries to come by his own way instead! Not waiting for the revelation of knowledge from God, but guessing out of one's own darkened mind.
