    ---MUCH DEEPER BUD THAN MANS OPINION---JOHN 6:63 IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH --THE FLESH PROFITETH NOTHING--THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE JOHN 3:3 JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM VERILY VERILY I SAY UNTO THEE EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD 1 PETER 1:23 BEING BORN AGAIN NOT OF CORRPTIBLE SEED BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE BY THE WORD....

    Manny: You are right that the word trinity is not in the bible but if you read with understanding it is all thru it. Def. of trinity--God three in one. Mat 28:19, 1 Cor. 12 3-6, 1 Peter 1:2, That is only 3 of the 52 places mentioned. Good reading and bless you for studying the WORD.

    There is no such verse trinity in the bible. The 'us' refered to the Father and Son.

    Mr. Curious, you r right 😊 it does say "let us make man in our image". So is the "us" and "our" meaning the Three Persons in God or the Trinity? Or am I missing something here? My experience with Jehovah's witnesses says there is no place in the Bible where it says there is more than just God Jehovah, but this would be proof right here they r wrong. Verse27 is where it says "in His image".

    Mr. Curious; what are you looking for? MANY came to Jesus all through the centuries, for AS MANY different reasons. We come to Jesus because He loved us and died on the cross for our sins to reconcile us; and if we continue in our sins and a life of indifference to God and don't repent; it will mean hell for sure! The wages of sin is death; everyone must give account of himself to God in the end.
