    A good ideology.

    Have you seen any of this.



    There was apparently a movie planned but I have not heard of anything new on this for a while now.

    If only Christians hadn't started thinking... once they started thinking they kinda went off script...if Jesus was a divine being how was he a human being....or was he a human being?? And, if he's a divine being and God the Father' a divine being then you have two divine beings and two Gods! Or do you have only one God!? No there is only one God....is Jesus God...yes! Is God the Father God..yes...then you have two gods!!! No only one god... So it goes on and on.... from docetism to seperationism to modalism... modalism was okay... in a sort of screwy christian context, but, unfortunately it lost out as they carried on thinking. I guess that somebody pointed out that in the Bible jesus prayed to God and that would have made Jesus rather odd because he would have been talking to himself... go figure. And then good old Tertullian comes up with the Trinity just to make everything that bit clearer....if three things are almighty then neither one is almighty...they share might...And even that lost out to the three Gods are One god are three Gods..and the final position of Nicaea is...its a mystery. The Trinity is actualy supposed to be a mystery which means you cannot understand it and if you say you understand it you mis-understand it.....how about that for Gnosticism!!!

    The only issue with this is that early Christians... the right minded ones did not think this, it was not part of their Christology. You will not find this doctrine in the new testament.

    U C 20/20 on this.

    If your ".....how about that for Gnosticism!!!" --- was a question, we do not hold such a belief.

    I prefer the original Trinity concept that pre-dates Christianity which is nature based and id Father, Mother, Son.

    Today, with equality being able to be applied to our evolving species, I would change that Son to Child.
