The point is that Christ spent a long time learning the basics of religion with academics and others educationally more qualified than himself.

    Yet this is not what I'm talking about, but about the core teachings of the faith as alluded to by the apostles. You
have not shown that your own teachings pertain to it.
    I believe what I say is in keeping with the NT as a whole       
I have a lot of sympathy for anyone who purports to rely only on the bible, but ultimately self-education is clearly not the NT way. Even Paul the apostle was rigorously instructed in the scriptures by others, and the other apostles by Jesus. Everyone has to have a background of a tradition from which they came. You won't reveal yours. Strange.

    I would say the body of Christ "was" created in the apostles, and is being added to.
    I have never said anything different
You said the body of Christ "is being created." I know the distinction is grammarly only, but it is necessary to say that the body of Christ "is created" because it is important to grasp it.

Eph 5:23 "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body." The body must exist for it to be saved. That is to say, the body exists before the resurrection.

Quote
    Any false teacher could say that. Now I am talking about the people that hold to your doctrines. The body of Christ is comprised ultimately of people. I don't know who they are in your case.
      like I have said before there are those in all denominations that are in the body of Christ its whats in the heart that God looks at not whats in the head         
Not every denomination is part of the body of Christ.

Quote
    I don't see it, although I'll concur 7 is a sacred number.
    Such a collectivist view disentitles an indivdual man to say "I am of the body of Christ." Eph 3:6. For you it is future. For the New Testament, it is present.
    I have not said joining the body of Christ is a future event we join when we believe what I have said and the bible confirms is that the body and the head which is Christ will be joined as one at Christs second coming         
If Christ were not already joined to the body, how could Paul write  Eph 5:23 "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body?"

Quote
    The end of creation what the bible talks about in Gen 2:1-3. "There was an evening and a morning." Each creation day dawned and finished.
    very true but was evening and morning referring to light and dark good and evil ?
Evening and morning is just the way that the Jews delimit their days. On the seventh day God rested. Gen 2:2. The only day not in the past is the seventh day (the day of salvation).

Quote
    The days of creation resulted in the spiritual creation of spiritual man. The biological progeny of man really has nothing to do with it. It's where you fail to gasp what God's end in creation was: Adam the man. It was Adam who failed but God saved him.

    There is nothing in the bible to suggest that God had failed, or that God had to go back and recreate anything.

       I have never said that God had failed thats not possible
  the only time God could call everything very good is at the end of the millenium
In otherwords, he is accounted to have failed in all things until the "end of the millennium:" a notion that is quite absurd.

I think you'll find that in Gen 1 God says 7 times "And God saw that it was good" and it is clearly not referring to the end of the millennium.

Christ did not need anyone to teach him anything he received everything from the Father via the HolySpirit

    I have never said anything different

You said the body of Christ "is being created." I know the distinction is grammarly only, but it is necessary to say that the body of Christ "is created" because it is important to grasp it.

the body of Christ was created at his resurrection and has been added to ever since

Eph 5:23 "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body." The body must exist for it to be saved. That is to say, the body exists before the resurrection.

no it did not Israel existed before the resurrection this was the first Adam of this creation that began with Noah 

      like I have said before there are those in all denominations that are in the body of Christ its whats in the heart that God looks at not whats in the head         

Not every denomination is part of the body of Christ.

   again you are twisting my words what I said was there are people in all denominations that are members of his body


    I have not said joining the body of Christ is a future event we join when we believe what I have said and the bible confirms is that the body and the head which is Christ will be joined as one at Christs second coming         

If Christ were not already joined to the body, how could Paul write  Eph 5:23 "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body?"
    very true but was evening and morning referring to light and dark good and evil ?

Christ is the bridegroom the bridegroom is the one who is to be married the Bride is the one waiting for her bridegroom to claim her this will happen at our Lords second coming

Evening and morning is just the way that the Jews delimit their days. On the seventh day God rested. Gen 2:2. The only day not in the past is the seventh day (the day of salvation).

In otherwords, he is accounted to have failed in all things until the "end of the millennium:" a notion that is quite absurd.

your right it is absurd as I said God cannot fail everythingwe have in scripture from Genesis to revelations is part of Gods plan for humanity

I think you'll find that in Gen 1 God says 7 times "And God saw that it was good" and it is clearly not referring to the end of the millennium.

   there are 7 stages to creation and God has made sure that every stage of his creation has gone according to his plan

Also Mar 5:31 "And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?"

If you make Christ out to be a superhuman, then he is no longer a man. Christ could not know the scriptures until he had read them. Otherwise, he wouldn't have needed to be in the temple at all. He had to go through an education the same as everyone else.

Absolutely not. Rather he accounted his "confidence" in the flesh loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.   

That is not to say that he saw his learning as of no absolute value, for Paul saw knowledge as one of the fruits of the spirit e.g 2Co 6:6.

I don't agree. There are some denominations too awful to contain true believers. JW for one.

I don't agree. This is what Paul says of the gnostics Col 2:19 "They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow."

So it is clear that Paul sees Christ, the head, already joined to the body, but the gnostics have lost connection with the head.

Christ is the bridegroom the bridegroom is the one who is to be married the Bride is the one waiting for her bridegroom to claim her this will happen at our Lords second coming
You're thinking in modern terms. The biblical concept was rather different. The bride belonged to the bridgegroom from the moment of betrothal. They were regarded as one in flesh from that moment, which is why a betrothed woman was accounted an adulteress even before the wedding if she strayed. The wedding really only related to the initiation of living together.

       I have never said that God had failed thats not possible
  the only time God could call everything very good is at the end of the millenium
How do you know? Are you God?

As Paul said, Rom 1:20 "For since the creation of the world God?s invisible qualities?his eternal power and divine nature?have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."

So if the apostle says nature reflects the character of God, then whom are you to dispute it?

   there are 7 stages to creation and God has made sure that every stage of his creation has gone according to his plan           
I don't find it in the bible. I only find 7 days.

I have not disputed what Paul said I support it and its only at the end of the millenium that God could be satisfied with his creation although there were certain stages of his creation that he could say were good.

Try reading Genesis keeping in mind the following

So everything Christ did came from the Father not from the scribes  and Pharisees.
False dichotomy. The knowledge of the elements of the law had to be learnt by Christ as any other man. It was in the application and interpretation of the law that Jesus differed. Moreover despite their differences, it is clear that both relied on their knowledge of the Hebrew scriptures, education in which was as rudimentary then as English grammar is today.

So contrast two scientists or even biblical archaeologists who go through the same educational system to arrive at different conclusions as to some scientific or archaeological theory. To make out that the one in the right simply "didn't need any education because God told him everything" is perverse.

To my mind it seems like you're saying that there is profit in ignorance, because the Holy Spirit will fill the void. The bible never says anything of the sort. What it says is that there is profit in innocency (Ps 73:13) or freedom from guilt, which is not the same as ignorance.


Christ has always been a bridegroom dut there has not always been a bride she would be created after the resurrection.
The analogy of Israel as a bride was made long before Christ E.g. Jer 2:2

Who made you judge.
1Co 2:15 "The spiritual man judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one."

Anyone who worships Christ as an angel is a false prophet and condemned by the mouth of the apostle:

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that the Archangel Michael, "the Word" of John 1:1, and wisdom personified in Proverbs 8 refer to Jesus in his pre-human existence and that he resumed these identities after his ascension to heaven following his death and resurrection.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jehovah%27s_Witnesses_beliefs

Col 2:18 "Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind."

Col 2:19 "They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow."

That Christ is the creater of his body the church is not in question but they will not be joined until he comes to claim his bride.
Rubbish. Christ claims everyone alive, believer or not, as he died for all men, 2Co 5:15.

I have not disputed what Paul said I support it and its only at the end of the millenium that God could be satisfied with his creation although there were certain stages of his creation that he could say were good.
Gnosticism of a high order nowhere found in the bible, even a new religion. Who are you to instruct God as to what he should declare to be good or evil about his own creation?

Try reading Genesis keeping in mind the following

   Isa 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure           
Doesn't give you the right to engage in unbridled gnosticism based on flagrant confounding of spiritual salvation and creation. Nowhere do the apostles ever venture on, or approve, such a wild, dangerous and unauthorized activity.

How could Christ be about his Father's  business if he did not know what it was

But Israel was rejected through disobedience but don't forget all Israel will be saved.

Are you saying you are a spiritual man I thought you were a man of flesh and blood.

What the JWs believe or don't  believe or any of the other 600 odd denominations for that matter its what the bible says that counts not how men interpret it I am quite happy to let Christ do the judging.

     15  And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again     

That Christ died for all is not in question but whether all will take advantage of this wonderful gift is another matter.

    Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high     

Why you don't believe the scriptures is beyond me.

How could Christ be about his Father's  business if he did not know what it was
How could he know what it was if he didn't go to the temple to read the scriptures and understand them?

But Israel was rejected through disobedience but don't forget all Israel will be saved.
Rom 9:6 "It is not as though God's word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel."

      1Co 2:15 "The spiritual man judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one   

Are you saying you are a spiritual man I thought you were a man of flesh and blood.
The notation "spiritual man" means the born-again man. This is seperate from the idea of the spiritual body that is the resurrected body in 1 Cor 15.

What the JWs believe or don't  believe or any of the other 600 odd denominations for that matter its what the bible says that counts not how men interpret it I am quite happy to let Christ do the judging.
I gave you the formal apostolic condemnation of angel worshippers, which includes those who reduce Christ to an angel. If you reject the scripture, that's your affair. The JWs reject scripture, that much is clear: either they engage in angel worship, or they reject Christ. In fact they do both, as do many other denomination these days.

It's also unitarian universalists and many other churches that can no longer be classified as "churches of God" due to bad doctrine.

     15  And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again     

That Christ died for all is not in question but whether all will take advantage of this wonderful gift is another matter.
I agree, but the point is this: Christ's death for all entitles Christ to demand obedience from all men (Jhn 3:18).

So at what time in the history of mankind as we know it from scripture could God say everything was very good there were stages of Gods creation that went according to his plan but the end of creation the very last thing God will create is man in his image which is Christ Jesus our Lord he is the only one in the whole of scripture said to be so.
You are simply confusing the sin and consequences of sin that pertain to man, with what God created. God cannot be blamed for man's sin. God is not condoning sin by approving of his own creation.

It's your own ideology of confusing creation and salvation which is responsible for your unwillingness to accept Gen 1. Man in the image of Christ is the reality for the true believer. Why do you put it off to a future event?

Perfection is a matter for this life: God isn't going to make the unrepentant sinner perfect in the next life. Whatever your perfection or lack of it in this life will be carried over to the next.

    Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high     

Why you don't believe the scriptures is beyond me.
Sorry what's that got to do with creation? Jesus Christ is not "created."

I believe the whole of scripture is about Gods creation the end of which is man in the image of God which is Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is not "created" and man was declared to be in the image of God back in Adam's & Noah's day, but it was made imperfect by man's sin. In order to be saved man must attain to the image of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God, by putting on his nature, even the nature of Christ (Col 3:10).

All this putting off of things into the future is bad mistake. To the future belongs the reward of faith, not the perfection of faith.

Thank you for your reply

     Joh 8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things       

So it is the Father that has taught Christ so why would he need men to teach him.

When Paul wrote the above Christ was the only spiritual man and the only one who could judge all things.
So lets leave it to him

    Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day            

Its only at the end of the 6th day dose God say everything is very good and this is when man in his image is created and this is Jesus Christ and all those who are his.
Never forgetting God tells us the end from the beginning the end being man in his image

    Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high     

Why you don't believe the scriptures is beyond me.

Sorry what's that got to do with creation? Jesus Christ is not "created."     

I never said christ was created but his bride the church certainly is created this can be seen in Genesis 2

Quote
       Jesus Christ is not "created" and man was declared to be in the image of God back in Adam's & Noah's day, but it was made imperfect by man's sin. In order to be saved man must attain to the image of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God, by putting on his nature, even the nature of Christ (Col 3:10   

Christ is not a created being but man in the image of God is and this man consists of the man the head which is Christ and his body the church united in one this is man in the image of God.
And members of his body can be found in all denominations even JWs like I have said before God judges the heart not the brain.
To comply with Gods word all we need to do is

    37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

 38  This is the first and great commandment.

 39  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

 40  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets       


Its love in the heart God looks for not whats in the head.

     If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.   Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.  So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
