Very DUBIOUS claim to support a man made scam.
The English language Bible Translators DUBIOUSLY fixed "He" in that verse.
Romans 8:16,26, John 1:32, Romans 8:16, Romans 8:26, and I Peter 1:11KJV accurately reads " holy spirit ITSELF" as it is in the Greek manuscript , because the Translators knew that's the proper and accurate rendition every time.
grin cheesy.

If you DUBIOUSLY claim that the finger of God is a person, you are also LYING that the eyes and ears of God are persons.

So all the English Bible translations are Dubious apart from NWT, bah?

Since you claim they are Dubious, can you show us the original Greek word used in that verse and let's see how the same word was used in other places

You are ONE even though you have three different identities. Only at death could your identities be separated. God cannot die: His identities cannot be separated.

God is One and indivisible.


Mat 12:31-32:
"Why I say to you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven to men. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come."

John 5:30:
"I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me."

Luk 3:22:
"And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove on him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased."

We get and know all that about "God is One and indivisible" but, so, are you putting limitation on God by suggesting that:
1/ It is hard, difficult, impossible and beyond God to send Himself on an errand as a Son to earth?
2/ It is hard, difficult, impossible and beyond God to project out from Himself to then after, concurrently exist in two places?

The illustration of Trinity using the state of water or any other solid is okay for comprehension but not precise enough. The closest I still find is the trinity of man as an example. The next closest illustration to this is the "Wave-Particle Duality" of matter (howbeit in 2D).

First answering your questions:
1. God sends Himself on errand as the Father composing His will/plan, the Word expressing the command and the Spirit of God actualising the command.
It is analogous to my soul willing to fast and my body (in spite of having its own will, complying by not eating.)

With due respect, your illustration break down in the sense that (using your illustration): it isn't H2O sending Water, Steam or Ice on errand, it is the Father sending out the son on errand.

2. The Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit are not localized. It means that each has the infinite nature of God without limitation of space and time.

In other words, the illustration or analogy of the trinity of God being compared with the trinity of man does NOT contradict either of your two questions.

I do not subscribe to the theory of transmutation of God because
1. Mat 26:39:
"And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as you will."

It seems that the Word as the son could have a different will from the Father. It such is true, it means we have different personalities (as the soul and body of man are the same but of different personalities)
2. Mat 26:39:
"And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed , saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as you will."

If the Father was the same as the Son, there should be no reason for the Son to PRAY to the Father as both should share not only the same Personality, but same Emotions, Will or Volition.

I had initially presented the scriptures

3. Mat 12:31-32:
"Why I say to you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven to men. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come."

I see distinct difference in personalities between the Son and the Holy Spirit. If the Trinity was one personality, I expect a single reaction to blasphemy. Chemical reaction with H2O is the same irrespective of its state as solid, liquid or gas!

4. John 5:30:
"I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me."

The independence of WILL connote an independence of personality.

My body is my Physical Identity. Everyone in the Physical realm know my body as me. My body can feel hunger for food, pain or pleasure

My soul is my Personal Identity. My soul is the center of my Will, Intellect and Emotion. My soul decides that my body should go on a fast (even when my body craves for food).

My Spirit is my spiritual Identity. Everyone in the spirit realm know my spirit as me.

Even when I am disconnected (death). On earth, everybody refers to my body as me. However, in the spirit realm (just as Lazarus and the Rich man), my soul/spirit is ME!

With all due respect my dear highly esteemed loving brother, please just answer the "are you putting limitation on God by suggesting that: It is hard, difficult, impossible and beyond God to send Himself on an errand as a Son to earth?" and "are you putting limitation on God by suggesting that: It is hard, difficult, impossible and beyond God to project out from Himself to then after, concurrently exist in two places?" questions first with a binary Yes or No, then it would have been alright to write your explanations and defences.

Anyway, I have to quickly dash out for a few good hours and so will have to come back to all this, when I am back in. When I do, I will respond properly to your post and shine more light on that will give more illumination on why God, though is infinite/infinity, presents the Godhead three dimensionally (i.e. trinity) lmso

Blabbermouth:

Jesusjnr, I do believe all these are mere titles. I can call you "The comforter", or personalize it and call you "my comforter", that is not your name, it's just a title or role tied to your person.
The holy spirit is called the wine because His operation can be intoxicating.

The holy spirit is called the spirit of truth because it functions as a spirit that manifest truth wherever it abides.
And so on and so forth.

Since the holy spirit is generally regarded as a person, I want to know his name. Just like I know my Lord's name is Yahshua, Immanuel and co. I know my God's name is Yahweh. I want to know the holy spirit's name.
The name of Jesus is d name of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus was a comforter when he walked d earth nd He said he will send us another comforter which was d Holy Spirit. In John 14 Vs 26, the Holy Spirit was sent in the name of Jesus,so that is His name nd that's d name He answers to.

Know today that it's only when you know how to call someone that he will respond and do something everyone can see in your life, the same thing goes with God's Holy Spirit. It only manifest itself in the gathering of those who knows how to call it. That's why none of you guys claiming God's Holy Spirit is a person can point to any positive effect of Mr Holy Spirit anywhere! smiley

The one and only group of people who knew the Holy Spirit inside out are JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES, that's why they're the only group producing the FRUIT of what they know VERY WELL! Galatians 5:22-23 compared to Matthew 7:16-18 smiley

Jesus said Matthew 28:19 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"

If Holy Spirit doesn't have a name, then Jesus would have wrong to baptize in THE NAME of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28 Vs 19 was before d death nd resurrection of Jesus Christ. People were baptized in the name of the Father nd of d Son nd of d Holy Spirit
But after d resurrection of Jesus Christ,He was given a name which is above every name in heaven nd on earth nd underneath the earth that at d name of Jesus Christ every knee should bow of things in heaven,on earth nd underneath the earth nd every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
So the name of Jesus is d name above all names now even in heaven. The name of the Father nd of the Son nd of the Holy Spirit is name Jesus Christ now.
If demons attack u ,u can't be calling on Jehovah or God ,but d name of Jesus covers everything.

The Lord Jesus Christ is in heaven at d right hand of God the father. The Holy Spirit is d third person of the Godhead that's on earth now. What Jesus Christ would have been doing assuming he was on earth is what the Holy Spirit is doing now ,but remember Jesus Christ could only be at one place at a time when He walked the earth,but the Holy Spirit can be at many places at a time now.
Talking about visible work of d Holy Spirit,in Acts 16 Vs 6-7 ,Paul wanted to go nd preached d gospel,but The Holy Spirit stopped them from going .
After d resurrection of Jesus Christ,d Bible says " now the Lord is dat Spirit ñd where d Spirit of d Lord is there is Liberty". Anytime d name of Jesus is call upon,d Holy Spirit goes into action.

At least I am clear what your positioning is regarding them two questions I asked and I think you are saying to the first question: Yes, you're putting limitation on God and suggesting that, it is hard, difficult, impossible and beyond God to send Himself on an errand, as a Son, to earth" and for the second question, you also say: Yes, you're putting limitation on God by suggesting that: It is hard, difficult, impossible and beyond God to project out from Himself to then after, concurrently exist in two places?"

Thank you for clarifying both. Anyways I'll be back in here again circa PM. See you then
I think you went tangent to my position o!
Yes: means I agree that God can send Himself on errand (with illustration as the soul of man can send the body on errands)
Yes: means God can be everywhere at the same time as the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit can be everywhere at the same time.

Where you see a single personality manifesting in three forms, I see a perfect union of three distinct personalities (just as the Body, Soul and Spirit of a man are distinct yet the same person)

If by the bolded you mean body soul and spirit, are you saying your body is a person? Your soul a different person and spirit a different person? grin

May the Lord grant you understanding
The same Person with three different personalities.
My body is ME
My soul is ME
My Spirit is ME!

I am sure you can see that you went off tangent to reformulate my two questions by changing the format of the questioning and thereafter went about, so not answering back exactly and in toto, the questions in their original wording.

You actually made up questions for answers you already had in mind to push. Why is it hard sticking to not helping yourself, in changing how I asked them two questions, hmm?

My questions were person(s) specific. The first question was solely centred round God and Son, while the second question had nothing in it, asking about the Word nor the Holy Spirit, but you decided to frame my questions to suit your already formed ideas.

I've just had a flat tyre and so currently waiting for the RAC to turn up and swap in the spare.
