Discussion for John 8

  • Ray321
    John 10:30 I and my Father are one. 1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit ONE GOD. I know is hard to believe, but God is One.
  • 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!

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
