2. Hebrews 2:14-18 - Shared Humanity
3. Philippians 2:6-8 - Emptied Himself, took the form of a man (Note: The Isaiah 45:23 passage immediately follows.)

...An attack on you as a person Jack. It's too bad gerardo won't be able to respond. You would think that after being silenced continuously, something would sink in but all that is displayed by gerardo is a HARDNESS of HEART.

However Jack because God has allowed gerardo to harden his heart, we who are the children of God through faith in God the Son are strengthened and boldened to stand for truth.

Proper Principles of Bible Study
















An endless loop of nothing.

You can't show it or prove it with something like a single paragraph, quoting scripture which actually SAYS what you assert it does.

Nope. Typical of Christian apologetics. Endless mush built on mush, built on more mush; a huge dense cobweb of nothings.

That's one of the reasons I no longer bother to even READ those lengthy mushy cobwebby concoctions passed off as articles: there's never anything IN them. They appear to be designed for numbing the brains of readers so that by the time the reader finishes he has NO IDEA what he's just finished reading .... but thinks .... because he's read so MUCH of it .... there must be something TO what the writer is claiming!~

As can clearly be seen from the above, the scriptures explicitly declare the Godship of Jesus Christ. Thus to deny His Deity is to deny the inspired, written Word of God.

Something To Remember

Jesus was not only God, but God-Man. The following verses help to explain some Arian proof-text used to deny His Deity:

1. Colossians 2:9 - Deity in bodily form (Gk: somatikos)
2. Hebrews 2:14-18 - Shared Humanity
3. Philippians 2:6-8 - Emptied Himself, took the form of a man (Note: The Isaiah 45:23 passage immediately follows.)




Pastor Jack Howell
"Some bring God's curse on them by marking off part of the Bible, calling it erroneous, uninspired, less than the very Word of God." - Dr. John R. Rice

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God to salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)

Proper Principles of Bible Study
















i missed it.....sorry.

why not then stick to exactly what scripture has used...instead of terms NOT found in the Word of G-d. Seeing as we are told we can live by every word of G-d.....why add to it....oh wait.....isn't that forbidden??

...An attack on you as a person Jack. It's too bad gerardo won't be able to respond. You would think that after being silenced continuously, something would sink in but all that is displayed by gerardo is a HARDNESS of HEART.

However Jack because God has allowed gerardo to harden his heart, we who are the children of God through faith in God the Son are strengthened and boldened to stand for truth.
