‘What is the Holy Father? What is the Son? What is the Holy Spirit? Is Jehovah the Holy Father? Is Jesus the Son? Then what of the Holy Spirit? Is not the Father a Spirit? Is not the substance of the Son also a Spirit? Was ‘Ano ang Banal na Ama? Ano ang Anak? Ano ang Banal na Espiritu? Si Jehova ba ang Banal na Ama? Si Jesus ba ang Anak? At ano naman ang ...

I see your points are from the context of 1 Co 25:27. Jesus is a spirit God puts all things under Jesus. For both physical and spirit creation to be subjected under him he would need to be more powerful than them and that means he is a spirit. 1 Co 15:45 says he was raised as a spirit. He has a God At verse 24 we see he has a God, his Father. So of ...

Your question is interesting, but not well founded. As it stands the answer to your question is "Of course not. Nothing is. Those who hold an entrenched position can address all challenges. In this case this applies equally to pro and anti trinitarian positions if they are held as necessarily true." You have made it clear in comments that you agree with ...

The Apostle Paul explains it quite nicely at Philippians 2:3-8. Vs3, "Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of your regard one another as more important than himself; vs4, do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interest of others."

No problem for Trinitarians at all. The context of 1 Corinthians 15:27 is actually a big problem for Unitarians. 1 Corinthians 15:27-28 [27]For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. [28]And when all things shall be subdued unto ...

I don't see a problem. Father and Son are uncreated and eternal. God is Spirit, as Jesus said.(1) Father and Son abide in a perfection of divine union, in one Holy Spirit.(2) This is an eternal begetting, Father and Son, in one Holy Spirit. (2) All that is created is put under the feet of him who is manifested. (3) He who is manifested is manifested in ...

Your question gets at what is presently a hotly debated issue among Trinitarians, Etneral Functional Subordination. Many opponents of EFS argue that the conclusion you draw here is the logical implication of EFS. Dr. Glenn Buttner recently recently published this paper arguing against EFS, and he includes a section that deals directly with 1 Corinthians 15, ...

During the course of my research into this subject I found an article that presents some views of the Episcopalian Church with regard the feminine element within the Godhead: The prayer book, first published in 1549 and now in its fourth edition, is the symbol of unity for the Anglican Communion. The Anglican Communion is the third largest Christian ...
