    But to say that Jesus is God is to really say that Jesus is the Father and this view is clearly not taught in scripture.
    as you explain above we can’t say jesus is God or Father But as scripture explain we can say Jesus is The only Lord And Father

    John 8:24-28

    King James Version (KJV)

    24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

    26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

    27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
    no. 27 says (They understood not that he spake to them of the Father. ) you did not understand who is Jesus

    New to the site.  My apologies if these comments are in the wrong place.  I tried using the e-mail icon, but it does not provide a TO: address.

    My comments are on the page about Constantine and The Apostasy.  There are numerous incorrect points of data about Constantine and his rule, etc.  The one that led me to this site is that he “led an army of Christians” to N.Africa to deal with the Donatist crisis.  This unfortunately comes from some errors in the text of Justo Gonzalez.  Here are my comments on Dr. Gonzalez:  “Gonzalez earned his Ph.D. in theology. Just let it be said that I would never attempt to write a text on theology….Gonzalez really should not be authoring texts on Church History. [This example and his poor choice for the “black dwarf” quote on Athanasius give evidence for my harsh view of his inexperience in church history.]

    Secondly, he is citing from a text first published in 1903. I found Souttar’s text on an archive site and Gonzalez did cite him correctly. So, I guess we can release Gonzalez from error. <b>No! As a scholar he is responsible for whatever he cites.</b> Souttar, as far as I can tell, does not give any primary source for his commentary on the Donatists…”

    I would urge you and your readers to read my article on this particular incident [www.churchhistory101.com/feedback/constantine-against-donatists.php].  I have dedicated the last three years to the study of Constantine as I am writing an eBook on him.  My Ph.D. is in Early Church History from the Church in Acts through the Nicean Council, now through Emperor Constantine.

    Another error is regarding the arch erected to honor Constantine’s victory at the Milvian Bridge.  It is true that this monument did not contain overtly Christian symbols, but it was not built by Constantine.  The Roman Senate commissioned it as a surprise and for a salute to Constantine’s victory.   When he came to Rome for his triumphal entry, however, Constantine did not go to the pagan temple of Apollos (I believe it was Apollos) as was customary.  Instead he went directly to a Christian Church with the bishops who were traveling with him to worship the God of Jesus the Christ who (Constantine believed) had given him the victory.  It is noted that this was his first act that put him at odds with the Senate.

    You did note that you had collected your info from Google searches.  May I suggest that you use web sites  written by scholars – it will keep errors like this from getting replicated.  Obviously I like to suggest Church History 101.

    Thank you.

    Interesting that you have not posted your ‘given’ name, or information about yourself, at least as far as I have found. I am using a pseudonym, Richard of Decatur, that is simply my first name and the city where I was born. This is how individuals in the New Testament were named and that seems like a good idea.
    I am just beginning to read various portions of your website.
    I too am a searcher of truth and what I find is far from most church organizations statements of beliefs.
    There are a few things that I have read that cause me concern. I am not sure at times what you are really saying. What I do understand seems to be very astute and true to the Word of God.
    I pray that God will continue to inspire and guide your understanding of His Word unfettered by traditions and misinterpretations from institutional thinking.
    I look forward to finding more nuggets of truth in your writings.

    I tried the envelop at the bottom of this page and it sent me to ‘I don’t know where’ and I was not able to contact you. Can you help me find a way that I can understand and use such as an email address?
    Anyway, I would really like to communicate with you as I think we are on the same path to understanding the Truth of God. I would be very interested in your thoughts about my website “Biblesafety.com” and I think you would find similar articles to those you have posted. I must say the way you present what you understand is excellent.
    I am gaining respect for your insight into the truths of God and hope you can spare some of your time to point out scriptures that I have overlooked.

    Gidday. I am the person who set up this website and who writes the articles and posts for the site. I am using the ‘Admin’ for Admin purposes, but use t8 ( @t8 ) as the ID for making posts.

    I am from New Zealand and have been a Believer since the mid 1980s. God has given me a ministry that seeks for the truth in all things. It is a passion in my heart and something that I should act upon lest I be like the servant who buried his talent. I do not belong to any denomination, but then my views on what the Church is, does not have anything to do with a denomination. anyway. I am free to fellowship with anyone from any denomination however. I do not have an exclusive view here.

    I look forward to conversing under the ID of  ‘t8’ as that user role is the same as the other members in the forum.

    🙂

    Not sure what email icon you are talking about. Perhaps you clicked the up arrow which shoots you to the top of the page. I updated my contact details in the opening post as there is no longer a Contact Form in the site. I explain why that is in the opening post which I just edited.

    🙂

    Hey everyone! How is everyone at Heavennet? Just dropping by and checking out things. My wife and I are doing well. Just moved back to our home here in NC. I noticed in the debate thread t8 and LU have been debating for going on 4 years about Jesus being God. Was reading a lot of it and it looks like a really good debate. I compliment them both on the nature of the debate being free from ad-hominems and battering each other. Love you guys and hope you all are doing well. Hope to drop in from time to time. I see NH is back and was wondering if Mike is still around? Take care! Blessings to you all!

    @WorshippingJesus

    Hi Keith,

    Nice to hear that you and your wife are doing well and back home by your family. Thank you for the nice compliment towards the debate between t8 and myself. It may be about 4 years long but it has been months since I posted on there. That is a nice thing about a one on one conversation, it can be picked up on where we leave off without having it become lost in a common thread. Come back and stay for a while 🙂

    Blessings,

    LU

    Hi Richard. I do not post much about myself on this site. Neither did the writers of the Bible do that.

    Today, much of Christianity is focused on individuals. Even whole denominations are named after certain men. Imagine if we had the Pauls vs the Peters. I have a problem with these divisions. It is not about individual people, but Jesus Christ. We are here to serve and if the word of God comes from us, then God get’s the glory. Focusing on individuals in order to judge the words coming from them is the wrong way to judge IMO. People can say anything they want about themselves. Their words stand or fall on their own. Personally, I try to judge words that people speak or write on their own without prejudice. Wanting to know someone’s denomination to judge them reminds me of this verse:

    What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
