Hi Esdras, 

You should quote the material you’re asking about. Do you think we have a website of thousands of pages memorized, or that the particular words and context they’re used in aren’t important? On either count you’d be wrong. 

Here’s the portion: 

In order to promote the doctrine of the trinity, the writers of GotQuestions read into what the Scriptures say according to their natural minds and indoctrination of men. Let’s look at some common verses used to prop up the egregious pagan doctrine of trinitarianism:

Genesis 1:26-27 JPS
(26) And God said: “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”
(27) And God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

Why “Us” and “Our” in verse 26, since God is singular in verse 27, it saying “He,” not “They”?

To begin, God was not alone:

Job 38:4-7 MKJV
(4) Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell if you have understanding!
(5) Who has set its measurements, if you know? Or who has stretched the line on it?
(6) On what are its bases sunk, or who cast its cornerstone,
(7) when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Genesis 3:22-24 JPS

(22) And the LORD God said: “Behold, the man is become as one of Us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever.”
(23) Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
(24) So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way to the Tree of Life.

He was speaking with the cherubim, describing the situation and their mission. So there are others with the LORD God.

Aside from the sons of God who were with God at the creation, there are also the cherubim to whom He said, “To become as one of Us….” So who can doubt that these angelic beings are made in the image of God? How else can they represent Him and His glory to men? 

“And the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub to the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the LORD. And the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when He speaks” (Ezekiel 10:4-5 ESV).

“Above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail” (Hebrews 9:5 ESV).

Why do you ask, Esdras?

Esdras, I answered the questions of your July 19th email, which you haven’t acknowledged or answered the questions I posed to you in return. You can see that letter in the thread below. 

There’s no point in answering further questions from you. And why isn’t your Baptist ministry helping you? Have you confessed masturbation to your overseers, and what have they said about it?

How old are you, Esdras? Do you live with your father? He may have wrong doctrines, but you have been under his authority and need to get honest with him.

Hi Esdras, 

We aren’t having meetings anymore, but you may register on the Forum and interact with us there. 

But first, begin interacting now by telling us how your talk went with your father. That’s the step we told you to take and you agreed about getting honest with him about your masturbation. We haven’t heard back from you on this. What happened? How can you make progress and gain understanding if you aren’t obedient? Faith and obedience overcome social anxiety and all fears.

Paul

Satan's Light and Righteousness Versus God's
From: Andrew To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, March 05, 2016 9:03 AM Subject: Article about Joseph Prince A warning to you,  I read your article about Joseph Prince.  I laughed through much of and I have some issues with your statements.  You are claiming to know the motives and heart of Joseph Prince Ministries.  Yet you are a judge.  And for what reason I'm not sure.  Never ever in the years that I have watched him have ever been compelled to give money! Out of the goodness of my heart I wanted to give.  You are foolish and stepping on dangerous ground blatantly calling out ministries that you know nothing about.  Through his ministries I was set free from sin-consciousness, fears of public speaking, and for years I was addicted to pornography and after having a revelation through a message by Joseph Prince on Jesus' love towards me I was set free! Not in my efforts but by grace.   You are afraid of money or prosperity  yet the bible says it is the love of money that is a root to all kinds of evil ( not money it self.) I can tell you've probably only watched a few messages by Joseph and have judged without further investigations.  Joseph Prince preaches quite often on the life of Joseph and how the lord was with Joseph and made him prosper.  Joseph Prince said "prosperity is not about money but God is always with us." There are thousands of people who have been sent free from the law and walking in a life to glorify Jesus. You claim we need to keep sabbaths...
