    Hi,
    Lk 13
    ” 6And He began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any.

    7″And he said to the vineyard-keeper, 'Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?'

    8″And he answered and said to him, 'Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer;

    9and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.'”

    Matt 21
    “Matthew 21:19
    And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.”

    Hi,
    Christ was a real man.

    How about…

    Christ is the perfect man full of grace and truth with no guile in his mouth, declaring the Glory of God and revealing the invisible God by his very Image of God for he was one with God, having the Spirit without measure!

    I Tim 3:16
    And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: “God was manifest in the flesh”, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

    Hi W,
    He is like God because he is filled with the Spirit and the fruit of that Spirit.
    We are similar but earthly vessels also capable of being filled with the Same Spirit and in fact must produce the same fruit.

    Hi,
    In another thread W said
    “Are not we Spirit beings who has a soul and lives in a body? “

    Certainly we are made in the likeness of God.

    I would have thought we are spirit beings. We are from the breath of God, we are soul, enlivened the spirit living in dust, and in Christ are vessels filled with the Spirit of God. We will lose our tent and do not to be found naked but encapsulated by a new heavenly body at the resurrection, found alike to the man from heaven.

    Hi ,
    In another thread colter said
    “Adam and Eve were incarnate spiritual beings on an evolutionary world, but they did not remain loyal to the Father “

    But God said.
    Gen 3
    “19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. ”

    1Cor 15
    “47The first man is of the earth, earthy;”

    I guess it's all relative, Nick. Colter uses the UB books and has his own ideas and theology. Other's here share their form of theology. All these are interpretational. All spiritual books claim inspiration of sorts.

    Hi not3,
    Do you think now all claims are equally valid?

    Good question, brother.
    Very good question.

    Hi not3,
    Jesus is the answer.
    He is either the truth or you must call him a liar.

    Can I have another choice, please?

    It's this very thing that makes me insecure in Jesus being THE messiah. Other's claim that if you do not believe their religion that you will perish as well. Everyone has a qualifying belief that you must adhere to or your out of the club.

    Why call him a liar? If we are not positive he said everything that was written about him?
