Jesus distinguishes himself from the Father because he is not the Father. He's the Son. But he's still God. It's a Trinity thing.

My blog is now taking a new direction.  Dedicated to my father who was a great inspiration in my life, I wish to honour his memory (RIP, dad) by sharing with the world what he had always kept to himself.  More details, http://www.unexplain...showentry=27811

  • We are the sum of all that is, and has been. We will be the sum of our choices.

Instead of accusing others of laziness for "not doing their research" -- why not answer the question yourself and summarize those thoughts of others brighter than you into a couple of paragraphs.  Or are you too lazy to do that?  ;-)

I have, multiple times, it must be dozens now, it gotten to the point where I simply copy/paste my old posts to answer questions that have been answered and answered and answered ad nauseum... if you think I was being lazy, you should step back and go back to the beginning of this very thread...

How many times does a question need to be answered fully before the OP realizes he doesn't have a leg to stand on here... and you aren't helping since for those who feel they do not have to sit through a lecture by a biblical scholar, there is not much else to say...

I think that a quote by Isaac Asimov fits well here...

Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

So see the video, learn a few things...

Ah dear old Isaac. (Asimov) He managed to make a trinity of the golden rule. Now if only humans could be taught to be as thoughtful of human life as an android with a positronic brain is forced to be by inbuilt rules. .

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
