These "manifestations" that you imply reads sort of like fairy tale and magic tricks. If a writer needs a throne, make one. If God needs a way to manifest Himself, He can make whatever it takes and follow no standards. When God manifest a throne and sits on it, is that a real throne or a made up one, or maybe yet an illusion from God? In other words, is that imaginative for the person reading about or seeing the event take place?Hill Top wrote: ↑Thu Jan 24, 2019 11:00 pmYou seem to have successfully refuted John 4:24.
Of course, I don't believe you have, but have shown that God can do anything that is needful...like using water as the blood of Christ at baptism is Jesus' name for the remission of sins.
If He needs a chair/throne for the impactful writer of Revelations...make a throne.
If He needs a way to manifest Himself in that throne...make a being that is "like a jasper and a sardine stone:"
It is clear, God cannot be completely defined.
Interesting concept you teach and will definitely keep the believer in the dark about the Godhead as well as many other biblical concepts. The believer would never know which is real and which is not real. Based on this, one would question Jesus existence as well and all the miraculous things He did during His earthly life.
He may have simply been an imaginative manifestation appendage from God and not a real child born by the Holy Spirit, of a virgin, and placed in a manger. He could not have had a body and looked like His Father. Sadly He told people otherwise, but Jesus may have well been confused about who He was and is to this day.
Was Jesus death and resurrection real or some manifestation of God because Scripture does say that God raised Him? And to think believing in Him being raised from the dead is a saint's core belief structure. Now we simply cannot define any of it.
