Throwing a fit

In Texas, that is what we say a child is doing who doesn’t get their way, and falls on the floor screaming, crying, and kicking, snot running down their face, holding their breath until we think they are turning blue, all the while looking at their parent to see if these actions are bringing them around to their way of thinking.
Kid screamed, “I don’t want that oatmeal for breakfast, I want a hamburger” Parent said, (at least most parents)   “you can’t have a hamburger for breakfast, maybe for lunch, we will see.”   The fit is on.
I have found the best way to reconcile these differences is for both parties to get their say. And finally when the fit has not gained what the child wanted, and the fit subsides, the parent reaches down and picks the child up and tells them “I love you “ you never have a child love you more than that moment, he has been rescued from himself.
Is that what it takes for some of us to come to God become a little child with snot and tears streaming down our face, it seems that it is? But usually that tear stained child knows, and loves God better than those children who insist on having that hamburger for breakfast.
Mat 18:4   Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Yes when we come humbled before God, God forgives, and rescues us from ourselves.

John the baptist's question

Why did John have doubts?

(why would John, doubt the person, or mission of Jesus)?
Mat 11:2   Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
Mat 11:3   And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?

 (When,just a short time ago John is said to have spoken these words)
Jhn 1:29 ¶ The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Jhn 1:30   This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me 
Luk 1:41   And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
(was this an indication that John knew Jesus even in the womb, yet now doubts him in real life? )

 Why would anyone in that area doubt, did they not remember what had happened just a short 30 years before?

Mat 2:1 ¶ Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Mat 2:2   Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Mat 2:7   Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.  Mat 2:8   And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found [him], bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
Mat 2:12   And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. 
Mat 2:14   When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
Mat 2:16 ¶ Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

Did the Jews just forget all this happened, or did it happen?

KJV and trinity

It's so strange to me that many today when asked what vrsion of the bible they use, They nearly always answer another besides the KJV. When asked why, usualy say , it is easier to read and understand, or it has newer research back up.
But you ask why they believe in the "Trinity God" , they run to the KJV and 1Jo 5:7 as fast as their little fingers can run. Why ? not because it is harder to read, but because it backs up what they already believe. When actually there is no place in 1 John that says there was a trinity in God. The only reason the three was mentioned, was to insure a true witness.
Jhn 5:31 ¶ If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. (then he went on to disclose three witnesses,John, The Father, and scriptures) (that is exactly what John was doing in 1 John 5. nothing more.
Jhn 8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
Jhn 8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

KJV 1Jo 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
1Jo 5:6 ¶ This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
1Jo 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
KJV - 1Jo 5:8 - And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

1Jo 5:5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
1Jo 5:6 This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
NIV 1Jo 5:7 For there are three that testify:
* Late manuscripts of the Vulgate testify in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one. And there are three that testify on earth: the (not found in any Greek manuscript before the sixteenth century)
NIV - 1Jo 5:8 - the* Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
* Late manuscripts of the Vulgate testify in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one. And there are three that testify on earth: the (not found in any Greek manuscript before the sixteenth century)

Do you think the KJV people found something no one else has found, or do you think they made it to fit their belief, that God is three?

Trinity, facts

The false doctrine of equality between The Great God of creation, and his subjects is easily disproven without ever leaving the confines of scripture, unlike the doctrine created by mortal man, a creation of ignorance.

The father
Mal 2:10 Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? -----------.
Mar 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

The Son

Isa 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, [in whom] my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
Jhn 13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
Jhn 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come [again] unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

The holy ghost

Jhn 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Jhn 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, ------------.
Jhn 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, -----------.

Can anyone not discern, who is who from what is written in the bible.? Actually, it is very obvious.

autos--- he, she, it.
Jhn 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Yes the word "autos" is translated "him" why because if it were translated she, or it, what would that do to the false doctrine of the "trinity" ?

Why was the “holy ghost” recalled?

Jesus was setting with his apostles explaining that he was going to leave soon, and some were asking questions concerning the matter at hand, and Jesus spoke and said I will not leave you comfortless .
Jhn 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Jhn 14:17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

As we see later Jesus did just that very thing. He asked that they might receive the “spirit of truth”
Jhn 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

We see later, the holy spirit did not consist only of the “spirit of truth” but all the spirits bestowed upon the son by the father.
Jhn 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on [them], and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
Jhn 20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; [and] whose soever [sins] ye retain, they are retained.
I don’t think we should have any doubt as to who Jesus was speaking, when he said this. I don’t recall anywhere in scripture where it is said, all Christians have the power to forgive sins. So in answer to the question at hand, why is the “holy ghost” not with us today.
(Because it finished it’s work, on earth when the last Apostle died )

Lets look at the reason Jesus said it was time for him to return to the father.
Jhn 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
Now lets look at what Jesus said about the Apostles.
Jhn 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
Jhn 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Jesus was never intended to remain here, and neither was the one who followed him.
