in response to reader comment: Divine attributes are not merely "names and titles"

Hello, zzazzeefrazzee,

Quoting you, "It is merely humans who interprets, defines, and holds that the divine nature is different."

Well, it is merely humans who interprets, defines, and holds that the divine nature (of Islam and Christianity, Judaism) is one.


You perked my interest with your introduction of "divine attributes".

"It is even more absurd and dishonest to state that divine ATTRIBUTES are merely 'names and titles'."

I don't believe Oliver suggested that; however, I am curious as to why you brought the subject up.

"Divine attributes" can be an informative way to describe God; and, as far as the Bible goes, these attributes seemlessly fit with scripture.

You probably know by now I'm a Christian, but solely under the tuteladge of a scholar of the Greek and Hebrew (and Aramaic). NO RELIGION. Just study of the original languages of the Bible. Def. of religion - man by man's attempt to gain the approbation of "god".

The Bible in it's perfection is without equal. Really. But it takes a scholar of the original languages.

So, what do you say, let's start another argument, Oliver most assuredly will join in - why did you introduce "divine ATTRIBUTES"?
