        1. The mystery of God, does not mean mystery about God, - Tomas on Jul 11, 8:15 PM
          1. Mystery of God, God's mystery, it's all the same. It concerns and relates to God. - Michael on Jul 11, 8:55 PM

                      1. There is no need to suppose as you always do Tomas. Just believe what scriptures say. - Michael on Jul 26, 3:24 AM
                      2. I do believe all the scriptures say. I just don't go beyond that with dogma. - Tomas on Jul 26, 3:48 AM

                1. Don't you get it? Don was speaking metaphorically and not literally comparing God with air - Guenter (EX-INC Bible Student) on Jul 20, 6:47 PM
                2. I mean, Dean was speaking...sorry, Dean. - Guenter (EX-INC Bible Student) on Jul 20, 6:49 PM
              2. Sorry Dean, but your analogy and illustration of Trinity is erroneous. - Michael on Jul 24, 3:42 AM
                1. Michael, no analogy is perfect. You can knock me down, but see if you can give a better - Dean O'Gowan on Aug 2, 8:35 PM
                  1. I know. Not for knocking you down Dean. Just saying that Air does not illustrate trinity - Michael on Aug 3, 6:32 AM
                  2. Michael, you are saying God is like time? Past , present & future? - Dean O'Gowan on Aug 3, 3:47 PM

                      13. Maybe it's a matter of semantics, about his attributes. - Tomas on May 24, 2:31 AM

                1. I didn't lie about Acts 2:36. Peter preached what he learned from Jesus. - INCquisitor on Aug 10, 3:06 PM

        1. I agree with what you say there, except I am not so dogmatic - Tomas on May 24, 4:08 AM
          1. It's not about being dogmatic or not. It's about the revealed truth. - Michael on May 25, 7:06 AM
            1. You are dogmatic that it is the revealed truth he did preexist, - Tomas on May 30, 11:47 PM

                      1. That is not what it means to be omnipotent. - Michael on Jun 29, 3:04 AM
                      2. That link does not analyze God's omnipotence. - Tomas on Jul 5, 3:03 AM
                      3. Yes, it directly does not. What I said is that, it is a related link. - Michael on Jul 6, 3:26 AM

                      8. Well, you are quibbling about semantics, to create a disagreement where I agree. - Tomas on Jul 26, 4:04 AM
                      9. Being clear is always a good thing. I don't create disagreement, when I see none. - Michael on Jul 26, 9:08 AM
                      10. OK, if you now want to discuss only where we disagree, let's do that. - Tomas on Aug 2, 6:01 AM

            1. Did God promise never to beget a dog? - Tomas on Jul 11, 9:09 PM
              1. Again, seriously? - Michael on Jul 11, 9:46 PM
                1. Yes, do you have a verse that God will never beget a dog? - Tomas on Jul 19, 1:37 AM
                  1. None. Apparently you seriously believe that God can beget a dog. Really weird. - Michael on Jul 20, 6:53 AM
                    1. You claim that what is begotten of God, necessarily has the same nature - Tomas on Jul 26, 3:20 AM

                      2. But the Bible does not say even that nothing can come forth from Deity - Tomas on Aug 2, 1:07 AM
                      3. Well then Tomas, I'll just have to leave it that your God can beget a dog or whatever. - Michael on Aug 3, 9:38 AM
                      4. My God and your God, the biblical God, that we both believe in. - Tomas on Aug 9, 8:55 AM
                      5. But Tomas, it's not about what He wants, but is about what is begotten of God. - Michael on Aug 9, 9:27 AM
                      6. Maybe he never does and never will. - Tomas on Aug 9, 9:36 AM
                      7. He never can and never does Tomas. - Michael on Aug 10, 8:42 PM
                      8. OK, he cannot beget a male dog, because otherwise - Tomas on Aug 16, 6:11 AM
                      9. Yes, Tomas, that is who your God is. One who can beget even dogs. - Michael on Aug 17, 12:05 AM
                      10. Maybe he can't, but the Bible does not say he can't. - Tomas on Aug 30, 7:44 PM
      4. Jesus tells me he is a MAN (John 8:40) and the Father is the ONLY true God (John 17:3). - INCquisitor on Jul 20, 8:52 AM
        1. So, INCquisitor, you admit you don't know what it means to a begotten & be an adopted. - Michael on Jul 20, 9:30 PM
    3. How about you Tomas, what is your answer to the OP? - Michael on Jul 5, 1:55 PM
      1. The begotten Son of God was biologically begotten by God - Tomas on Jul 11, 9:14 PM
        1. Jesus, biologically begotten by God? How was that? - Michael on Jul 11, 9:50 PM
          1. I guess God put in Mary some sperm of his, to fertilize - Tomas on Jul 19, 1:43 AM
            1. God's sperm? Certainly weird! God has sperm? WOW. What weird thoughts you got there. - Michael on Jul 20, 7:44 AM
              1. So maybe not a sperm, but you have to acknowledge - Tomas on Jul 26, 3:33 AM
                1. Certainly and not maybe, Tomas. - Michael on Jul 30, 1:24 AM
                  1. That might all be true, but you have not proven it was not God's sperm. - Tomas on Aug 2, 1:18 AM
                    1. Tomas, it's not that it might be true, rather it is the truth. - Michael on Aug 4, 1:27 AM
                      1. You can think what you want, it's your thing. - Tomas on Aug 9, 9:31 AM
                      2. Right Tomas. I think about what scriptures say and not speculate on what it does not say. - Michael on Aug 14, 1:56 AM
                      3. So why speculate it was not a sperm? - Tomas on Aug 16, 6:19 AM
                      4. I'm not speculating Tomas. It is you who speculated about a sperm. - Michael on Aug 20, 7:20 AM
                      5. OK, you have a point there. - Tomas on Aug 30, 8:22 PM
