It's not really for me to respond to personal questions from others. However, I don't mind answering, I know what the Witnesses teach, the Catholic, the Baptist (I was brought up Baptist) and many other religions. The only way to determine who is correct and who is not is to learn. I see most here are set and only listen to their minister who shows them what they think the Bible says.
Ginger>we said that where? You parrot the JW's. I've heard those same words from them many times. I've read through the Bible more than once and have studied it since I was saved back in 1973 as many here have done.
Rick> I had a Baptist minister curse me out and call me all sorts of names because I did not agree with him. A 35 year minister too. My brother in law was a Church of God Minister for over 30 years.
Ginger>you expect me to answer for what someone else said to you?
Rick>Now, what is your background concerning other religions or is yours the only one? I see you never read much further than John 1:1.
Ginger>seriously? Boy, you are quick to judge me when you don't know me at all. I studied what other religions believe--especially the JW's as I used to live next door to a family of them. I know their canned responses when I hear them and I'm hearing them from you.
Rick>God the Father said no one could see him and live. So did the disciples not see Jesus?
Ginger>when Jesus left heaven, He laid aside His glory to take on human flesh.
Philippians 2:6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Rick>If you study and see what scholars say on John 1:1 you will see the correct rendering to be and the word was "a" God. Check it out. Trinitarians changed the meaning to back a trinity but the whole remainder of John shows they are not a trinity. They are one in purpose.
Ginger>Why don't you just admit it? You are a JW
Rick>Also, research the meaning of First Born.
Ginger>one of the first verses JW's love to first point out
Remember, broad and spacious is the road leading to destruction and narrow and cramped the road to eternal life, and few are finding it. Satans goal is to blind as many as possible concerning religion, especially those not willing to open their eyes. If you want to post your background since you were so concerned with mine, I will read it, otherwise being unreasonable, no sense in proceeding.
Ginger>you're a JW!
