Spirit literally means ONLY a WIND. A wind which results from a MIND is called A BREATH.
SPIRIT can never be A person but the mental disposition OF that person which may be expressed as the WILL of the MIND which thought.
In the text, the Spirit OF Christ is the Spirit OF God or the MIND of God.
If the Spirit OF God is another "god" then the Almighty is OUT OF HIS MIND: that's why trinitarians are ANTI-Christs but everyone gets the right to be an ANTICHRIST but NO ONE gets to decide the consequences.
[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Let's test Bill's assertion (since the following is a statement of the Roman Catholic belief):Remember, the preposition "OF" in "the Spirit OF God/Christ/the Lord" can be interpreted a number of different ways. The beautiful fact about that is that all those interpretations work well. It's still a matter of personal choice.
[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]No, I still work for a living, and as a disciple of Christ I try to devote as much time as possible to studying God's truth.I gather you intend to spend the rest of your life using a spiritual microscope to dissect the Trinity and the Holy Spirit into heaven's version of "subatomic particles." You must have lots of time on your hands.

The preposition "OF" regarding "the Spirit OF God" has been discussed extensively in other threads. Since Donnie wasn't getting the all-positive responses that he had initially desired, he created this thread to exploit "OF" further (while including "IN" for a bit of variety). Of course, the arguments about "OF" from both sides have not changed, and they never will change. Now is that insanity or what?Insanity: doing/saying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Are you ready to discuss "God IN Christ Jesus," Bill?[/color]===================================
[color=#000000" size="4" face="times]OK, we are not discussing the troublesome preposition "OF" at this time -- it is being presented here only for your "recollection" as we are about to bring up another preposition that is also troublesome to many biblical scholars and Trinitarian followers.
And what is that other preposition? We're finding out now.
. . .
And now ... Scripture's remark above: "The revelation of Christ ... the understanding that God was IN Christ."
I'm presenting the following passages with the preposition "IN" used in expressions involving God and Christ:
[... and there were at least 11 passages presented that were all ignored by Bill....][/color]

Hey! How about SANGING the same NOT COMMANDED songs over and over and over as an ACT of Worship when the command is to SPEAK that which is written for our learning. I began singing out of some "colored book" at about age 5 or so. I quit letting people destroy me at about 57. And I can gladly report that I could not sing a single verse of a single song. We REPEAT, REPEAT or rehearse because that is the only way to learn so it sticks past dismissal ACT.
APT elders are commanded to Teach that which has been taught.
Well, you are correct of course: He did NOT say "thou shalt not SANG Fanny Crosby or Twila Paris for your testesterone depletion."
Smile: they will think that you are thinking.
