God in Three Persons
Years ago, after I preached about God’s Spirit, a woman came up after church to complain, “Why do you talk about the Holy Spirit when people need to hear about Jesus and God?” Sometimes even those who have been Christians for a long time regard the Trinity as a hierarchy. To their way of thinking, the Father is God, Jesus is slightly beneath Him in rank and seniority, and the Holy Spirit is their servant. While this may conform to human models of authority, it isn’t biblical.
According to the Scriptures, all three members of the Trinity are fully God:
God the Father—Jesus Christ referred to His Father as God (John 5:17-18).
God the Son—John 1:1 identifies Jesus as divine. While Christ never specifically called Himself “God,” His Father did apply the title to Him (Heb. 1:8). Furthermore, Jesus acknowledged having unlimited power—an attribute possessed only by the divine Creator (Matthew 28:18)—and also accepted worship (Matthew 14:33; John 9:38).
God the Holy Spirit—After declaring that God raised Christ from the dead, the New Testament goes on to credit the Holy Spirit with the resurrection (Romans 8:11). Jesus reinforced that idea when He commanded the disciples to baptize new believers in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Hm, let see, oh here is the last Paragraph ksazma is referring too:
The Bible confirms that each member of the Trinity is equally God. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit function as a unit—no one is more important or less essential than the others. All three are focused upon their plan for mankind: salvation, transformation, and glory for God.
Regarding the last paragraph above, Jesus himself said that "My father is greater than I. My father is greater than all". Either he was lying or the paragraph above is.
Yet you think you can read and comprehend.
Here is why I said you (ksazma) are making a spectacle of yourself. As pointed out above in RED, I took the liberty of marking where the last paragraph is so we can clearly see, it either you who is lying. I failed to see what you are mentioning here ksazma, is it just me or someone else sees what he is talking about here in the last paragraph. ksazma you are proving everyday how incompetent you are.
I would also like ksazma to point out where, as he quoted, "My father is greater than I. My father is greater than all" is located in the post above and where in the bible he can find it and present it to us in plain view.
Folks I can guarantee you that we will have a case of misquoting and the ability of comprehending by ksazma.
