He's the spitting image of his dad, I wonder if anybody has ever heard that expression before?
"And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;" -Revelation 3:14
Those that believe in the Trinity point at John 10:30 "I and the Father are one" But it's not the first time in the Scriptures that type of saying is used. Gen. 2:24 "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh" Not literally the same person. Is that how John understands the meaning? You only have to go to John 17 to find out as he repeatedly uses it about Jesus being one with the congregation, as he is one with God, that they may all be one and so and and so forth "that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." -verse 21
I'm no expert in languages, but I have seen complex arguments against John 1:1 even being worded the way it is based on the 'singular anarthrous predicate noun preceding the verb' making it a complete tossup if he was God or a god. It's up to the translator...how can something that comes down to translators choice be considered proof on anything?
And don't get me started on the verse that says, "in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost."
All that does is list three names, so Manny, Jeff, and Harry play baseball, where are the other 8 hitters in the lineup?
