Re: Godliness?

So, for that to make sense, and which I wasn’t initially focused on would be the first quote:

“Without controversy" is actually one word in the original
Greek, and it means "by the consent of...

Re: Godliness?

So then you could say, "By the consent of all true
believers, the basis of the Christian religion is the fact that God
was manifest in the flesh.”

Re: Godliness?

In I Timothy 6:11 and 2 Peter 1:6, wouldn’t this be more about attributes than a religious system?

Re: Godliness?

That’s an interesting observation, which I am inclined to agree on the surface. Still considering some things.

Godliness?

I read this quote and wondered if anyone had anything to confirm this definition? I haven’t seen it defined in this way anywhere else. Obviously, I don’t have Schaffs Commentary.

Votive and I got off on the wrong foot, a long time ago, concerning the Oneness and I can’t get past it. I won’t go into it again.

Re: Romans 9:5 - understanding the English AV text

That’s great for your Grandma or not. Lol!

However, in Romans 9, it doesn’t and didn’t change what Paul was telling the Jews about who God was/is.

It was very simple and matter of fact. He was...

Re: Romans 9:5 - understanding the English AV text

I read the passage, didn’t notice the comma, because I was reading and understanding what Paul was conveying. How would a comma change anything when there is only ONE God?

Re: Romans 9:5 - understanding the English AV text

I am saying that the context of the passage is that God is still on the side of national Israel, and their Messiah has come, through their lineage. Paul’s work in Romans was to grab Israel and to try...

Re: Romans 9:5 - understanding the English AV text

Paul opens chapter 9 with a solemn oath:

He ends the chapter with an equally solemn...

I submit that JFB has it perfectly right - It remains then, that we have here no doxology at all, but a naked statement of fact, that while Christ is "of" the Israelitish nation "as concerning the...

Re: Romans 9:5 - understanding the English AV text

I am very sure Paul, who wrote the Book of Romans, was simply teaching God was in Christ as he did many times, i.e., 2 Corinthians 5:19. After all, he is the one who asked, “Who art thou, Lord?” - “I...

Re: Romans 9:5 - understanding the English AV text

It doesn’t appear to make any difference where the comma is placed or whether or not “is” is inserted before God. It is very simple because we know that Jesus is God.

I don’t really know what it...
