Ishmael,Thank you for your kind response. Well, many things could be said. But let me confine myself to just one point. Indeed, God in the book of Numbers says, “He is not a man, that He should lie, nor the son of man that He should repent [change His mind].” The essential nature of God, the Godhead, is wholly uncreated, divine, and has never become corrupted with what He has created. Not even the incarnation of the Word in Jesus Christ made the nature of God any less divine. But when the holy apostles declare that “God was manifest in the flesh,” what they meant was that God clothed Himself, as it were, with the humble garments of flesh. “In him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Putting on clothes brings the man into intimate contact with his clothing; it does not in any way make him his clothing. Classic orthodox Christianity since the Council of Constantinople has declared that the God-man, Jesus, is one person with two distinct natures, without any mixing or blending of the two. So in Christ, God has not converted into human nature in any way. Rather, He has come into such intimate contact with human nature for our redemption. How close He has come to us for our salvation! He is “Immanuel, God with us.”I would love to carry on more discussion in person. If you are ever in Rhode Island or near it, drop me an e-mail – mjives dot refparish at gmail dot com. I would be happy to treat you to lunch – that is, if you can dine with a kafir like me!I’m not on Facebook myself, but I notice you’re an electrical engineer. My son wants to go into that line of work.Warm regards,Michael
Codex Sinaiticus which contains the oldest complete copy of NT does not have the word ‘God’ in 1 Timothy 3:16, so unholy trinitarians used the ‘lying pen of scribes’ as bible puts it. Please read:16 And confessedly great is the mystery of godliness: He who was manifested in flesh, was justified in spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
