    Default WOF & NAR Leaving Out "THE" Article For Father & Holy Spirit

    Why do you NAR or WOF leave out the "THE" articles with THE Father and THE Holy Spirit? I have seen and heard this omission in several of your movement's books, sermons, and blogs

    Since they are already in the business of changing doctrine, what's another deviation from Scripture?

    Without the definite article it depersonalizes the person of the Godhead. In Matthew 28:19 if it read in the name of the Father, of Son and of Holy Spirit, it would make them none persons, but since it reads in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. We know that they are persons and singulkar becaise in the "name" is singular, in does not read in the "Names" which would mean that they are three seperate from one another manking them three God's and not one in three person.

    I hope this helps with this question that you've asked.
    John 6:63, 65 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life....65 And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.”

    I Corinthians 4:7 "For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?"

    Born in the Spirit & word, granted by the Father. EE-TEOW
