Description

Disclaimer : Regardless of the setup for voting win or lose, The aim of this interaction, Is for those that view it, Learn and or take away anything that will amount to any constructive value ultimately. So that counts as anything that'll cause one to reconsider an idea, Understand a subject better, Help build a greater wealth of knowledge getting closer to truth. When either of us has accomplished that with any individual here, That's who the victor of the debate becomes.

Pretty straightforward to prove from the biblical scriptures as written, that the Father is a person as in one of three persons but the Father specifically.

Also be prepared to answers questions in the debate. Don't run, don't evade, don't think it's just a come and say whatever and run.

Be prepared to defend yourself with responses and answers.

Pretty clear and direct but any questions, leave a comment.

You're up. Bible book, chapter and verse that we read Father God or God or God the Father or The Father is a person.

Being that you opted to participate in the same subject, try to bring different points and scriptures for each separate debate session, do you follow?

“Being that you opted to participate in the same subject, try to bring different points and scriptures for each separate debate session, do you follow?”

No. :) 

Preamble:
I shall now proceed to prove that God, The Father is a person using several verses from The Bible!

Definitions:
Person- A human being.


“Genesis 2:7 - Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”

The breath of God is inseparable from God. It is his Holy Essence and it is in every man. Since a part of God is in man, then man by definition is God. Which also means that God is man. 

“I am a God who is everywhere and not in one place only. No one can hide where I cannot see them. Do you not know that I am everywhere in heaven and on earth?”

Well, if God is everywhere, then that would mean he is inside every person. Which means he is every person simultaneously all at once! 
Can’t argue with that logic.

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

Well then, if God made mankind in his image, then it must stand to reason that God is identical to us in every way.: Spiritual, moral, intellectual, and physical!

Thus, God is a person too! Pun intended!

“1 Corinthians 8:6 ESV / 457 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful
Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.”
Isaiah 44:6 ESV / 331 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful
Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.”

Jesus and God are one in the same. Their distinction is metaphorical. Jesus is the version of God that is human in which he addresses himself as “son.” Therefore, I have met my burden of proof and established that God is a person.
If Con objects to any of these arguments, then he is distancing himself from God because he is directly going against the Bible. 

I thank Con for this discussion! :)

Provide book , chapter and verse where it's written God is a person.

By just stating the same thing and same points, the debate rounds gets circular awfully fast.

It doesn't take any person to argue like this, all is needed is a tape recorder to repeat things.

Now do you follow?

Still playing dumb with a sarcastic attitude.

Can't find any scripture that reads the words "The Father is a person".

This individual knows this. Playing dumb, intellectually dishonest, not necessarily one of the two but both.

Out for debate points, waste of an opportunity.

If the roles were reversed, I guarantee the opposing side would be saying there is no such verse.

People we got to be honest on here. It'll only help you in the long run.
