It was 4 years down the road when I got baptized in Jesus name. I did it because I could see it in the book of Acts. It may have been another year before I actually got the revelation of Oneness.

In no way would I ever think what I got in 1974 was anything but the gift of the Holy Ghost.


I received the Holy Ghost believing Jesus was the Son of God , as well. AND I STILL believe Jesus is the Son of God.

Is anyone saying that they believe otherwise?

I want to add this. Originalist, itís not apples and oranges to compare people praying to Mary and those that pray to Jesus as the second deity of the trinity.

If you pray to Mary does she hear you?

If you pray to Jesus as a second god, does he hear you?

Matthew 7:21-23 KJVS
[21] Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
[22] Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
[23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


Does a man/women have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ believing in the trinitarian doctrine?

I think you meet people where they are, find common ground and build from there. Jesus gives us the Holy Ghost to guide us into all truth. John 16:13

If you have the Holy Ghost, you have an intimate relationship with God.

I do believe that a person can have an intimate relationship, with Christ believing the trinitarian doctrine. I have known many. What I find reviling it the different beliefs that are found of the oneness of God. I did not know how many there were until I got on AFF.

I mean can I be on the road to hell just because I may be wrong in the way I see oneness?

Sis, I believe like you in that Jesus give us his spirit to guide us into all truth.

The spiritual law is revealed to us by his Spirit.

Ill use marriage as an example, physical example can bring spiritual meaning.

Just because a man and a women are married, doesnít mean there intimate. And Iím not just talking about the undefiled bed, Iím speaking of the man and women talking to each other, knowing each otherís likes and dislikes, can look at each other and know what the other is thinking. There intimate with one another, Thatís what I believe ďknowingĒ Jesus is all about.

A person in church can speak in tongues yet, he doesnít have an intimate relationship with Jesus.

I believe you have to believe in the truth that Jesus is God. Do you have to have a theological degree on the oneness to be saved? No, I don’t believe so. I do believe you will be lost if you believe in the trinity, that means three co-equal, co- eternal, co-existing gods, or the catholic trinity of three individual gods in one body.

I said that based on your comment,

Quote:

Yet, what happens when a catholic believer says she received the Holy Ghost because she prayed to Mary the mother of Jesus and she believes Mary intervened (to her son Jesus) on her behalf? Does she have the Holy Ghost? Am I limiting God?
That is extra-biblical garbage. Trinitarians Pentecostals receive the Spirit focusing squarely on Christ and his blood.

Re: Trinitarians Who Baptize in Jesus Name
 
It baffles me how many preachers you come across today that have no preference whatsoever as to how they baptize their congregation. I know of a man who pastors a self-proclaimed non-denominational church and when one of the ladies that attended his church asked how he baptized, he basically told her that he would do it in the titles or Jesus Name depending on the congregate's request.

Like, what Bible study could that preacher give about baptism? He has no stance on either side of the fence. Would it be safe to assume he doesn't see baptism as necessary?

At least a lot of Trinitarians try to justify their view with Matthew 28:19.

What was the spotless lamb, was it the spirit or was it the humanity? How can you sacrifice a spirit, the Bible says, for spirit doesnít have flesh and blood. Remember the Bible says, for God will provide himself a lamb, blood and water flowed from the BODY of Jesus, not the spirit.

Allow me to make it simple, if I may. Yes or no question:


Do you believe Jesus is currently the Son of God?

It is not a complicated question. A one word answer will be best.

Yeah, you shouldnít worry about trinitarians if you canít even give a straight answer regarding if Jesus is the son of God.

Let me help you out:

Rev 2:8
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

Notice Jesus called himself the son of God many years after his resurrection.
The fact that you canít just straight out say Jesus is the son of God is honestly baffling.
Using the same standard you used to judge the trinitarians, you may be worshipping a different God...hahaha

So am I...if you claim to be oneness and canít flat out say or believe that Jesus is the Son of God, donít be surprised if trinitarians donít even listen to anything you have to say about the topic of Godhead.

Jesus is the Son of God is the most basic tenet of our faith. Oneness and trinitarians believe this.

Explaining how Jesus is the son of God is where the differences are. And some people have come to the conclusion that being able to explain the ďhowĒ is a heaven/hell issue.

More than a few on our side will even go so far as to eliminate the words of songs that refer to Jesus as the Son of God. Doctrinal insecurity. Truthfully, I do not think they really understand our doctrine.

The truth of the matter is that we are often more focused on explaining how the trinitarians are wrong, than understanding and defending our own doctrine. We seem to take comfort in finding fault with the doctrine of others, whichever side of the fence we fall on. It is somewhat reminiscent of the plank in the eye allegory.

I have absolutely listened to a trinitarian explain the trinity almost verbatim to the method the general superintendent of the UPCI explained oneness in the debate.

I was shocked!

Nicodemus1968 04-08-2021 02:33 PM

Re: Trinitarians Who Baptize in Jesus Name
 
We all understand why we have the humanity of Jesus (son) on this earth. We all can amen that the humanity (son) was a sacrifice for our sins. The humanity (son) was the lamb of God to take away the sin of the world. Why, because Jesus said God is a SPIRIT, and a SPIRIT doesnít have flesh and bones, like after the humanity (son) resurrected had.


So, therefore God WAS manifested in the flesh.

Th question is, is God still manifested in the flesh?

Acts20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

To your question- There is no ďGod or the sonĒ. They are the same.

Yes, God is still manifested in flesh. Jesus literally called himself the son of God in the book of revelation. That would show that God is still manifested in flesh (albeit, now with a glorified body)
