The world is a reflection of us because our thoughts mold it into what we want it to be. Our thoughts control our bodies and our bodies and hands are used to build things and change landscapes and build entire cities. All of that originated with thought, so we ARE that "something greater".
ALL emphasis on Jesus and Jesus alone, taking power away from those who believe him. Paul teaches that Jesus is the center while everything revolves around him, that is absolutely not true because we are all the "center" not just Jesus.
3 So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment?
No. Jesus did not retain his godhood.
Was Jesus playing dress up when he donned his man suit and sacrificed himself to himself?
No, God is a spiritual being. Before we became what we are now, we were not technically "beings". That was why we needed to create a universe, to be beings.
Are you playing dress up as a human man, when in reality you're a spiritual being?
No. It is the result of thought, but not a direct 'magical' manifestation, where such a thing is not necessarily possible when it comes to the material.
The natural world, or universe, is the physical manifestation of the spirit and is, in reality, a marriage of both.
So? That was a choice, so it was a consensual "limit".
For you to say that God is a spirit and nothing else put limits on your God.
The universe is limited by certain physical laws which we may not be necessarily aware of at the moment.
As we know it, the universe is without limit, making the universe greater than your God.
I'm only stating my opinion not trying to convert you.
Paul taught that Jesus died for our sins, when you really think about it that is not true. If anything, he died BECAUSE of our sins, not for.
They used Jesus' message against him by having Paul write those letters in order to twist it to fit the elites needs.
If he truly loved Jesus and his message, he would not have equated him to Yahweh in any way, but he does with no if's and's or buts about it.
Why do disbelievers, atheist, agnostics start so many threads about Christ, about the faith? They should just go on and be happy with their choice.
Others, like jmdewey may feel the need to reconcile Paul.
Revelation wasn't written until well after Paul died, by at least 30 years.
Could you maybe explain what "Plenary Metaphysical Solipsist" means? I googled it and came up with no results.
Metaphysical solipsism is the "strongest" variety of solipsism. Based on a philosophy of subjective idealism, metaphysical solipsists maintain that the self is the only existing reality and that all other reality, including the external world and other persons, are representations of that self, and have no independent existence.
