I have been coming here for quite sometime, I have enjoyed it and the friends on the forum.
I have found it rough going at times because there are some things that are not allowed...as the Trinity teaching. For me it is somewhat difficult to respond or begin a post, when one starts from a certain point with the post and another who responds and begins the reply from a different belief beginning. I have no doubt that we all have that situation. I believe I have weathered pretty well there.
The other off limit subject is the teaching of man having Free Will, again the same situation and we must chose our words carefully. I have come very close to running over that one a few times.
But now there is another subject that is rearing its head, and that is the teaching that," man was first spirit and lowered into the natural realm." I have been informed numerous times(not here) that I have a rather dry sense of humor, that I am sarcastic(that goes along with my dry sense of wit) and that I am quite factious but in a humorous way. These are all traits that need work, and they are being worked on.
But now just recently I was informed "It's beginning to appear that you just want to argue for argument's sake."
That is not true, but I cannot be silent when I read a post that is not what the Bible teaches. I want to get along and learn just like you all, but here its seems is my obstacle, I do not accept the Trinity teaching as Biblical, along with the teaching that man has Free Will, and now, this teaching I believe is way in error, that man was "first and spirit and then lowered."
So what I'm trying to say my responses come out from the knowledge that
There is one God. Deu 6:4 Hear, O Israel: Yahweh, is our God,—Yahweh alone.
That God is cause for All that man does, behind All that happens in His Creation. Isa 45:7 Forming light, and preparing darkness, Making peace, and preparing evil, I am Jehovah, doing all these things.'
That man was first living soul then a life giving spirit. 1Co 15:45 So also it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
Just so you know.
Peace and Love Through Jesus
