  1. I was reading where you say no trinity: was wondering about John 16:13, Eph. 4:30, Mark 3:29 and Math. 12:32, what is your take on these.

    1. I don’t understand the connection with the scriptures you have provided. I have never stated that there is no Holy Spirit but rather that the teaching of the trinity is false. The Holy Spirit is not the trinity or even part of a trinity. None of those scripture speak or teach about God existing as a trinity or His Spirit being a separate entity of Himself. God is “Spirit” and God is “Holy” so the Holy Spirit of God belongs to God. The Holy Spirit of God is the possession of Himself. When God pours out His spirit on humanity, He is giving us Himself and not someone else.

      1. These scriptures just seem to speak of the Holy Spirit as a separate person, just wanted to know what you thought. Thanks

      2. Gotcha… Well, God is “Spirit”! God is not a person so therefore His spirit is also not a person. God’s “spirit” belongs to Him just like your heart and capacity to love belongs to you. Your heart is not a separate entity of you, it is a part of you. When you give your heart to someone you love like your mother, father, siblings, wife, or children, you are giving them the invisible “possession” of you and not another person! They can experience your love with them. The Holy Spirit is the POSSESSION of God! When God gives us His spirit, God is giving us Himself and we can experience God with us!

  2. Good morning, I’ve been researching other beliefs outside the christianity writings and have found that human nature tends to “revise” what it feels isn’t to it’s liking. For instance movies like 3 billboards, the true story wasn’t “screen-worthy” so they revised the truth, the only thing that remained is that a family lost a daughter and put up 3 billboards to try to find the killer, the rest of the movie is fiction, Fargo, although they say it’s a true story it is 100% fiction. We do this with our own lives and the lives of those we love, maybe not in such a grand scale but we do. We will sometimes revise the actual events to make them more exciting or shine a better light on our own actions. This is what I believe has happened to God’s word. Man has revised His/Their thruth because man didn’t like the real story, thus creating contradictions in text and 3 different possible belief systems with “justification” where the belief isn’t supported. We as “christians” say God is a God of community, but He is a loner, however, more belief systems show that there is a “God” community and the word God is actually the family name Elohim which is the ruling family. Many religions have multiple gods with a family of Gods at the top. it was later that christianity desolved this to one. Other religions give both men & women (Gods) equal power, christianity gave the male of the species more power by declaring one God a male. I am not saying there isn’t truth in the christian writings but I am saying man has distorted God’s truth to his own liking because he didn’t like the story as it was. For instance, Sumarian belief is that there are 2 Male & Female and their offspring (gods) roamed the earth and cared for it, however, it became increasingly difficult and one was created as a sacrifice to create humans. The blood of the one created nations of humans….sound familiar, it is…bible teachings vary in translation but it is from the blood of one that all nations were created.The genisis story of creation has never quite set well with me because there are to many holes in it. I believe that the leaders/priests/kings of the time didn’t like the true story so they made up this narrative, that there is only one God and He created one man then thought the man needed companionship and created woman then walked in the “garden” with them until one day they disobeyed His comand and He found out, like He didn’t already know, like when He first created this in the story, man was supposed to be ok with just animal companions but after a time God saw that he was unhappy and created woman, also, the “sin” was not really their fault it was the “serpent” so even though we may “own” our behavior to a point, we can still blame someone else. Back to God walking in eden, in the new testiment the Messiah/Christus says no one has seen the Father, so who was walking in eden (which by the way means flat land or steppe, not garden or paradise). He also says if you have seen me you have seen the Father, giving rise to the false trinity doctrine, human fathers are seen in their sons, the nature of the father is in the son. that is what was supposed to be conveyed in my opinion. the “bible” states that “many will be deceived” what better way to do so, even the writings say this “satan” tempted the “messiah” in the desert using God’s word, so why not now, why not the most popular belief system on earth. When did we decide our version was the only “right” one. I know this will bring tons of disagreement, but this is what I am finding right now, “scripture” as it is now, isn’t completely true, once more, I believe there is truth in it, but man has distorted it and revised it to his own liking. Christianity says if you confess with your lips that “Jesus” is Lord and believe in your heart that he was raised from the dead you are saved, the “unclean spirits at the lake in the man did that, “Satan” did that and yet “christianity” says they don’t get saved so how do we know we are if that is how it work or doesn’t, they will validate by saying it’s a heart matter or “Satan” hates “God” but the qualification doesn’t say anything about how you feel about “God” only that you believe & confess. I do believe that Elohim family is greater than what any religion portrays and forgives ALL. I also, believe that some of the “human” stories in the bible are actually “god” stories not humans, but man adapted them because he didn’t like the truth. I’m still researching but this is where I’m at to date, thx for the forum.

  3. I’ve been following your web site recently, and cautiously, with interest.
    I came to faith 40 years ago which was life changing..no sinners prayer or pressure from evangelistic outreach..just a mind opening revelation of God and as He willed..very simple!

    Cutting the long story short…I’ve been questioning lately the historic development of the theology behind what I’ve come to subscribe to within traditional church after that conversion.
    This, after reading George Macdonald, Andrew Jukes and Hannah Whittall Smith who seem to subscribe in various shades to Universal Salvation.. and after reading them , I had a great hope and new perspective of the amazing good news of our faith, which I frankly could not see any ‘Good News’ before within the narrow confines of the privileged few/elect.

    Also I came to question God’s total sovereignity in accomplishing His absolute will for all and could not accept that it counts on my own works of belief..why should I be favoured above others through a random decision of will?

    Thankyou for the alternative view. I’m still trying to work through it and how I continue in loving my family in Christ in traditional church and teaching as my views change within the true gospel of Christ.
    My thanks for your labour

    In Him

  4. Do you believe that in the beginning Jesus Christ existed with his father as a physical person? I don’t and I believe that to be a begotten son of god you have to be begotten by God himself.

  5. I’ve asked questions and commented before, but maybe you can give me a little boost if you’re willing? I’ve always had a hard time understanding Matthew 24:20!!! And I can’t wait for you to come out with more of your truths…

    1. Hello Miranda it’s good to hear from you again! Remember when studying the scriptures that it is extremely important to understand the context of the passage. Jesus is speaking to all of Jerusalem and he is making a prophecy in regards to the future destruction of Jerusalem and it’s temple. It is recorded in history that Jerusalem was destroyed along with it’s temple in 70 AD. The Jews were strict adherents to Jewish law which included the Sabbath which required that you rest from all of your work. The Jews were told to flee to the mountains in verse 16 but many stayed. They chose to hold on to their physical works to the law and their physical temple which ultimately lead to them being slaughtered by the Romans. If this isn’t clear let me know and I’ll expand on it a little more for you. Take care…
