[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Let's not expect Bill to understand this simple truth:Some people may take a passage like Eph. 6:23 that mentions "God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ" and contend that since God is the Father, then only Jesus, not God, is the Lord, that they are two separate beings, which is the concept of "Binity."
No, it is not any kind of ITY:
God is the only SPIRIT without flesh and bones
Jesus said He had flesh and bones
Therefore, Jesus was not God or we couldn't see Him.
Lord just means a RULER and the modern PLANTATION OWNERS (mega churches) have only the senior pastor as LORD: He is the antithesis of a "minister" because he insists that even the poor widows sell their property so he can build more houses.
One God person
One MAN as Mediator
All people who are brothers with no ranks
The One Piece Pattern:
Rom. 15:6 That ye may with one mind and
<font color="#FFFFFF">.....one mouth glorify God,
.....even the Father OF our Lord Jesus Christ
GOD is defined as the FATHER. God is the Father of Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus was not the CHRIST of God until God "made Him to be both Lord and christ." He is not called the Son of God until after His baptism. Neither Lord Nor Christ are God words in the Greek.
There is just ONE GOD FATHER OF THE UNIVERSE OR UNIVERSES.
Jesus was given God's throne for HIS kingdom and so the RULER.
Jesus is the ONE MAN who is the mediator between the ONE GOD and His Children.
That is neither unitarianism or oneness which is not content to speak where the Bible speaks.
1 Cor. 8:4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things
.....that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, [gods]
.....we know that an idol is nothing in the world,
.....and that there is none other God but ONE<b>. </b>
The trinity invented by Lipscomb University's H. Leo Boles and which spread over parts of churches of Christ says as with John Mark Hicks.
There are THREE centers of consciousness, able to "commune" or with Boles hold conversations like a committee.
The Father is God
The Son is God: 100% man and 100% God
The Holy Spirit is God
They are ONE only in the sense that THEY are perfectly agreed among THEMSELVES.
Paul is therefore declared IGNORANT and also a woman hater and so WE no longer preach from the epistles but we KNOW only Christ and Him crucified. They translate that to mean WE PREACH only Christ. However, that is a lie because they claim that a spirit will tell them the TRUE TRUTH if you engage in Ignatian Meditations which honors Mary the Mother of God.
1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 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 ONE GOD is the FATHER and not IN ADDITION a son and a spirit.

Sarcasm is not much of a rebuttal, Donnie. That's all you have left. You can't get around the Bible's "One Lord" and still say the "Lord God" and "Lord Jesus" are two separate Lords. For it all to fit, God and Jesus must be the same One Being, the same One Lord. If the Bible had never said that there is only One Lord, you might have had a case for Lord God and Lord Jesus as two separate Beings, two separate Lords. But since the Bible does say that there is only One Lord, then to say that Lord God and Lord Jesus are separate and not identical is the product of your highly imaginative talents.[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Bill boasts about and trusts his "human imagination" and is fixated on his fallacious premise that God the Father and Jesus Christ ARE [?????] one [?????] and the same Being. Scripture twisting works for him he thinks.
Bill's nonsensical logic is as follows:
1. God the Father sent His only begotten Son
2. But God Himself literally became flesh, so Jesus is God on earth;
3. Therefore, God and Jesus Christ are one and the same Being.
Wow!!! That's Bill. Dr. Bill's creative imagination.[/color]
