Gideon and His 300 Men

Posted by: Administrator on June 05, 1999 6:29:36 AM (8735  reads )

Let Us Make Man in Our Image

Posted by: Administrator on October 07, 2002 3:11:46 PM (8587  reads )

- Here is one verse that divided Christianity regarding God’s true identity.

- Who can explain "us, our" in the creation of man, if God will not unravel the mystery of His identity?

- If Jesus Christ referred to His body in the parable, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up," does not God equally refer to "something else" other than the number of creators in His use of "us, our"?

- If Jesus Christ explained the meaning of temple by "demonstration" at His death and resurrection, can we not expect God to explain "us, our" by "demonstration" also?

- This will prove that indeed God is speaking in parables as Jesus Christ was prophesied to speak "dark sayings of old."
