Can the Model-T ever be separated from Henry Ford, or vice-versa? Creation is forever and intimately tied to its Creator, and vice-versa. Even the
archetypal manifestations of "Evil" and "Rebellion" reflect their source. When one looks to a creation, the creator is intrinsic to the very
thing. There is no denying it.
Sorry, God allows all of his creations free will to choose. Satan chose to rebel against God, so he will be permanently separated from God. Now you
have to choose which one you want to follow.
When did Satan fall from God's grace?
I believe Satan had been cast to earth and was already here before God created man and set him on the earth.
How did Jesus reconcile us with God in your opinion?
He died a human death in order to shed the flesh, so that we could have eternal life with him in our heavenly bodies.
The Bible tells me there is no original sin and that none can die for my sins:
That's like you trying to convince me that you've never sinned. Who cares what the definition of "original sin" is as long as you know you've
Read Psalm 22. Jesus said he came to fulfill the scriptures and repeated the first verse of this chapter at the time of his passing.
The Bible tells me conflicting ideas of "Son"
Jesus is referred to as the Son of God with a capital letter on "Son".
The rest I won't go into because they would be lost on you. Short answer, those (other than Jesus) who followed God were considered, "sons of God"
with a lower case "s".
But God and Jesus said all of us are children of God;
He was talking to the Israelites and the people of Israel in which Jesus was born into their lineage.
And Jesus told us that there is no such thing as calling on his name to be saved:
(Matthew 7:21-23) Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father
who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name
perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!"
He was talking about the ones who were preaching one thing to people while practicing another. In essence, the ones who were practicing evil, namely
the Pharisees and the Sadducees.
It seems to me that "The Kingdom of God is within" and to Love Creator/Creation. Period.
The Kingdom of God within is the Holy Spirit. The one sent by Jesus to those who believed in Jesus. The Holy Spirit only lives within until Jesus
returns to set up his physical kingdom.
Jesus was the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but that's for another thread.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
