      One small request, normally we are allowed 48 hours to respond to the debate. However, I live north of Tampa, Florida and am packing to evacuate this afternoon. So I request that the debate start Monday and allow 72 hours between responses to allow for uncertain internet access in the aftermath of Irma.

          Thank you.

          ... but I don't need 'luck', I have Jesus (God incarnate) charting my course.

          1 Peter 4:12-19 NLT
          Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world. So be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name! For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News? And also,
          “If the righteous are barely saved,
          what will happen to godless sinners?”
          So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.

            I just now saw this atpollard. Since you are in the path of a hurricane, we can allow 72 hours.

              To judge another by the creeds is to engage in angel worship. To profess belief in creeds in to deny belief in Christ. The creeds teach a deity according to human construction, according to the confines of the human intellect, but the bible teaches a divinity unconstrained by human intellect, a hierarchical spiritual unity, that will not be known through creeds but by the spirit.

              It is you who are evasive. You refuse to engage with the biblical usages, taking refuge in creeds when you should be expounding the word. I asked you questions. You could not reply. You cannot reply because you do not understand. You conception of God is of this world.

              I have repudiated arianism and modalism. It is enough by any biblical standard.
              The links to the questions in post #36 are still being evaded.
              You cited a passage where worship is due unto the Father (John 4:23) but failed to see that the same word for worship is properly rendered unto the Son (John 9:38) thereby demonstrating that He is God.
              Some of those who blasphemously deny the Lord Jesus is God believe He did not exist prior to being conceived in the womb of Mary. This is not Arianism. Modalism might affirm this but they blasphemously affirm that the Lord Jesus is the Father.

              To affirm that you do not belong to either one of the above does not necessitate your "jesus" is the true Jesus of the Bible.

                Respectfully, clearly stating what you DO NOT believe is really only half of a discussion, because it forces those reading along (like me) to then GUESS at what is left that you do believe.

                Let me put it another way, so what DOES it mean that the FATHER is not the SON (and vice versa) as taught in scripture, yet both the FATHER and the SON are 1) worshiped and 2) called "God" (thus appearing to be Deity, yet scripture also tells us "there is only one God")?
                Simple questions like these are evaded. Your first sentence is spot on.

                  Based on their beliefs the Christadelphians (a non-Trinitarian heretical group) would also repudiate Arianism as well as Modalism.
                  They believe the Son of God did not pre-exist at all but when He was conceived in Mary is the time when His life began.

                  See atpollards first sentence in my previous post in which I cited him.
