While personally, and being Catholic, I wouldn't accept anything other than "In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit." (or equi. translations), its not that they've forbidden the traditional forms. Nor is there any directive to avoid such language in place.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Nah.

    I miss you guys. But I don't miss this forum. I miss what it used to mean to me, but not what it's become post Trump.

    The dialogue has become a bit one-sided, and I'm tired of having to re-apply my custom javascript filters that remove posts from trolls and cranks. Once Shunya, seer, Mountain Man and Darth Ex have been muted, there's hardly anyone talking here.

    Cause you muted me long ago, right?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    I'd never mute you. As much of a hot head as I was during the discussions about police shootings, I respect you. :D

    And way to use pity to get me to reply. I won't participate in other threads, or any discussion of sorts though. I might start one thread in the prayer sub-forum about a particular thing though.

    Another explanation for my absence is more simple. God has graced me with a full-time job. When I come home I'm tired. :)

    I was wondering where you went. Too bad, I generally thought your posts were good.

    he Church of Sweden is urging its clergy to use gender-neutral language when referring to the supreme deity, refraining from using terms like "Lord" and "He" in favor of the less specific "God."

    The move is one of several taken by the national Evangelical Lutheran church in updating a 31-year-old handbook setting out how services should be conducted in terms of language, liturgy, hymns and other aspects.

    Maybe we should wait to build God until after we can build something simpler - like the universe.

    True.

    However, one of man's favorite hobbies is to build a god in the image that man wants him to have.

    There is nothing new under the sun.
    "For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings." Hosea 6:6

    My time to be on TWeb is unpredictable. It may take a few days for me to see your post and respond.

    One common example is conceiving of a love-only god, which very easily leads to the acceptance of universalism: the view that all persons will (or must) eventually be reconciled to God. (Typically this is conceived as being accomplished via some kind of post-mortem repentance.)
    [I]f what you have heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. The one who has the Son has the life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. (1 Jn 2.24; 5.12, LEB)
