How can one entity give multiple persons to another entity without the giving and receiving entities be different persons?

    Robert Franzen Billy Monroe Poff Jevan Little HOW would this verse work without distinct persons? HOW can one entity give many persons to another entity without the giver and receiver being two distinct persons ?

    The father has a Divine will/mind. The Son has a human will/mind.

    The Son can function as a human being, distinct from God.

    Can’t be done with just 1 entity. That’s elementary school common sense.

      Then the bible would say 3 entities not 1 God

      Miller Isaac, I have no clue why you can’t grasp this. Or maybe it’s that you just don’t want to because you would have to first say you were wrong. . The trinity can easily explain there being 1 God composed of the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Just the same as YOU are a trinity. You are a spirit that has a soul that lives in a body. You are only 1 person that has 3 distinct and separate parts. Your spirit is not your soul and your soul is not your body. There are 3 that make up the 1. And YOU were created in the image of God so therefore He also had to have a Spirit Soul and Body, which He does! It’s called the trinity. 3 in 1. It’s really very simple. The trinity perfectly explains why the Bible says there is only 1 God and yet it makes CLEAR DISTINCTIONS between the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Yet your oneness theology cannot explain it without having to try to twist or dance around the MULTIITPLE verses everyone has given you

      A person is a distinct individual as is each one of us. That’s because the Father through the Son made us in their own image.

      Thus, the importance of the individual derives from faith in Jesus. Valuing the individual is the same as love.

    To which I asked

    OK granted – but how do they give to each other if not 2 distinct persons ?

    MEANING – your answer fails to address distinct person
    WHAT do you mean by human/divine will?
    DOES this denote one human and one divine person in the Trinity?

      Jevan Little, you said, “God (Divine) gave to His human (God incarnate) Son. So you divided them into two. God (Divine) and human Son. So if there are two but yet you say that it is the same one and not another distinct person than that implies that the one has two personalities

      In order for party A to give something to party B, it had to be understood that party B doesn’t currently have it but party A does. So how can party B receive something from party A that he didn’t have until party A gave it to Him if party A and party B were the exact same party?? You make absolutely zero sense

      this question makes lots of sense to me as IN the past 2 weeks I’ve tried to ask about the statement of JESUS in the 4th Gospel – JOHN makes no mistakes in the distinct 2nd Person of the Trinity being DIVINE – 1 Jn even calls for antiChrist anathema on the ones who deny the divinity of the Word in flesh

      John is DEEP! There is a clear claim to divinity throughout with the ‘I AM’ statements, but you must tie in the farewell discourse prayer of 17, and the Paraclete statements. Clear Trinity, and divinity of Christ!

    No my answer doesn’t fail. It’s the answer to your question.

    Also I asked a few times what a person is with no answer. What is it about 2 persons that fulfils the ability to give and receive?

    Since Father and Son are distinct in Oneness I don’t see why the Father can’t give to the Son. Just saying the word person over and over isn’t an explanation

    So? It doesn’t use the words, trinity, God the Son or persons. In fact there is no Greek word for the modern Trinitarian versions of “Person”

    Person comes from Persona, which means mask of an actor.

    Persona comes from prosopon, face…

    You still haven’t addressed…if Jesus prayed to the Father, how does His claims of divinity fit? He is more than human, and he prayed not to himself. Jesus did not have a human will/mind. If so, he would not have been tempted in every manner as we are, yet without sin. If so, he could not have been a sufficient sacrifice upon the the cross.

    But I’ll leave it at this…the blood of Jesus saves us all, Jevan. I think we believe in the same Jesus despite differences in Oneness or Trinitarian doctrine.
    I’ve seen Oneness folks never change their mind, and I’ve seen them decide there are grounds for the Trinity. The latter never happened through any way other than the Holy Spirit.

    Jevan Little and you know that I have stayed with the topic but when you get rude spammers like Miller Isaac and the other guy what do you do? NOW to Chalcedon and the heresy – it is not me, us or whoever here – Modalism was called heresy A Damnable Heresy by the early church There was plenty of reason WHY
    What makes a difference between classical Trinitarianism and Oneness theology is not simply persons/modes, but how the incarnation defines Father/Son. Trinitarians argue that Jesus was the Logos of God and that the Logos of God was incarnate while Oneness adherents simplify it to say that it was God incarnate. Trinitarians agree since the Logos is God, but uniquely so in relation to the Father and Spirit. Oneness theologians see this distinction as anti-biblical pointing out that we don’t see Father, Son, Spirit until the incarnation. BTW I demonstrated you have not yet answered the question in OP

    Jevan Little The main problem comes in the incarnation IF we accept oneness incarnation we must admit GOD changes – well, He does NOT I believe you already admitted to that The Trinitarian model does not allow for changes within the perechoresis of the unchanging GOD –

    the Son is eternally begotten of the Father, and the Holy Spirit eternally proceeds from the Father and the Son.Again, this is why the Nicene Creed makes the important point that the Son was “begotten not made” [emphasis mine]. If this were a once-for-all begetting in time, then we would have to maintain with the Arian heresy that there was a time when the Son did not exist. So, describing the Son as eternally begotten guards against such false teaching. We also believe in the eternal generation of the Son, based on the eternality of the Father and the Son. In other words, because the Father and the Son are both eternal, the generation of the Son must, necessarily, be so as well.

    The Latin term Filioque describes the Holy Spirit as proceeding from both the Father and the Son, (not from the Father only). In the Nicene Creed it is translated by the English phrase “and [from] the Son”: I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father ⟨and the Son⟩.
