I have been looking into this - please help me out a little bit...

What browser are you using, and on what platform? (desktop, pad, phone, etc.)
So, the only pictures I didn't see (and still don't) are my own in post 96,236.

My browser is Chrome on a laptop (chromebook).

The other funny thing about it is that I posted another picture from that set in a different thread with no problem.
(I didn't post that one in this thread, but it was from the same file location, and posted the same way)

There is a new book available on Amazon titled TRIADIC REALITY AND THE NATURE OF GOD. I would be interested in hearing anyone's comments or review of this book.

The links seem to be broken - I get "not found" errors on those...
thanks, that's what I see too.

:unsure: wonder why.
Usually I just cut/paste, but since they were larger I saved and made them all similar in size and uploaded (something I've done before with no problems and did the same way) 🤷 oh well.

They were pictures of bunnies "praying"
When a rabbit cleans itself, it pulls its front paws together (like "prayer hands") and bends its head over them to lick.
it's so cute and sweet. When ours were babies they would do it before eating. We always joked that they were praying "Thank you Jesus for my new home and family and I'm not cramped in a cage with other bunnies and get this big bowl of food all to myself"

In my experience, if the pic has too many wee little thingies, it may load once, but then be removed because it is too large for the Site to support..... I have had several that were rejected by the Site itself because of their excessive well little thingies that make it a picture... :)

God the Father has god-like qualities such as being everywhere at once, knows what everyone is thinking and feeling, can do anything, knows everything including past, present, and future, has always existed, and can create realities in His mind. That is how He has all those qualities. Our reality is in the mind of the Father.

The beginning of our reality started when the Father placed a living being in it, with his own mind, heart, and soul, and through which he would be able to interact. The vehicle for this interaction is His Holy Spirit. The Father fills this living being with His Holy Spirit so that this living being is filled with His presence and together they create our reality. Our reality was created by the Father through this being. That is what is meant by the expression "sitting on the right hand of the Father". This being was the first and only being formed from the Father and he is the temple of the Father in our reality. That is why this being is the offspring of the Father and is referred to as the only begotten Son of God, and the image of the invisible God, because the Father's presence (His Holy Spirit) resides in His Son. The Father loves His Son and the Son loves the Father and obeys Him. The Son's will might differ from the Father, but the Son subjugates His will to the Father's. The Father created all things in our reality through His Son and for His Son. All things created are placed by the Father under the Son's feet. I believe that makes the Son Lord of all creation as well as the God of all creation, but the Father is the one God of all, including His Son.

The Trinity is a nonsensical concept that ignorant fourth century bishops were forced to teach to ignorant people by a sun worshiping Roman emperor Constantine who convened the Council of Nicea in 325 AD in order to unify the varied ideas taught at that time concerning the relationship between the Father and the Son. This was the first time that religious concepts were backed by government authority. Just 30 years earlier Christians suffered the worst persecution ever under the previous Roman emperor Diocletian. In 315 AD the Edict of Milan made Christianity a legal religion probably because Constantine's mother, Helena, converted to Christianity. Anyway, this forced concept was rigorously taught to all Christians at the time and was embedded into Christianity through the years up to the present. God is not a three-headed being, since according to Trinitarians, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have different minds that make up the one God. No matter what Trinitarians say, 3 does not equal 1. That is what they were taught and as humans are afraid to think outside the box that they are in. Non-Trinitarians are also afraid to challenge Trinitarians because there are so many and they gang up to shut down any opposing views. A true christian has to be bold when nonsense is preached.

All things created are placed by the Father under the Son's feet. I believe that makes the Son Lord of all creation as well as the God of all creation, but the Father is the one God of all, including His Son.
Each to his own belief.

I believe this:

God the Father: God OF man
God the Son: God AS man
God the Holy Spirit: God WITHIN man


3 Persons in 1 in perfect harmony, The Holy Trinity. The Gospel of John gives all we need to understand the existence of the Holy Trinity.

Jesus is FULLY God, as is the Holy Spirit! Even when He was here on earth in the form of man, Jesus was still FULLY God. He said such Himself more than once in Scripture,

Yes, we were created in His Image. We are triune beings. The Apostle Paul states this to be true.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 - And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
