    Two men? God is a Spirit. - John 4:24
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    I love John 8 especially verse 17. Jesus was a separate being from God his Father. Two men walking in one accord in unity. Then latter comes the Holy Ghost and we have a trio and not a trinity.

    John 8:16] And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
    17] It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
  • A disciple
    "..He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.." We have all heard it said, that the devil will say many truths to put forth one lie: but what does the Lord say? There is no truth in him! And about false prophets; that God allows them in order to prove us, whether we will obey the Lord or not. We should'nt be ignorant of the devil's thoughts!
