I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

comment Why is Jesus the Son called the Father in Isaiah 9:6?
RE: "This question reveals one of the mistakes that non-trinitarians make" ... did you mean to say "Trinitarians" there? If not, I'm not sure I follow the logic. By the same logic, it could be said that the concept of "Father" or "Son" did not exist before God invented the family unit. "God ... is not defined/limited by these ... and yet he is the perfect fulfillment of them". I think this is a perfect description of the "non-Trinitarian" perspective, and as such, is not an effective illustration of where "non-Trinitarians" have gone wrong, if that makes sense.

Any chance you could include a reference from Scripture or Church doctrine to support your personal opinion? (In the mean time I'm going to go ahead and accept, because this is an excellent answer which settled the topic in my mind.)

I'm digging the "simple" answer, but could you add some sort of reference to Scripture or Church authority to back up your claim?

Hah. Now I have a "yes", a "no', and a "maybe". Thanks. ;) You brought up some interesting points - especially the island example.

comment Please, advise Christian horror movies
If "The Visitation" doesn't give you nightmares, I don't know what will. That movie is creepy.

Wow. Bold statements! Does this describe the modern usage of the word in Catholicism, though?
