I can hardly believe this thread is actually on TMB. But here it is fr all 2x2s to see.
Some early workers did seem to preach a triune God, but then consider this – those same workers almost immediately clouded that with Jesus as the “pattern” for all preachers – making workers out to be copies of Jesus. I have read some the same quotes of Jack Carroll, but did not stop reading at where he seemed to be teaching Trinitarian identity of God – he almost immediately covered up any clear Trinitarian statement with the 2x2 gospel of homeless preachers and meetings in the home, which is nothing like the gospel taught by the twelve apostles and Paul – not even close.
It is not only essential to know the real Jesus (God in human flesh), it is essential to salvation to accept and believe the saving good news that God the Son died for OUR sins, paid OUR death penalty on OUR behalf, was buried and rose on the third day, triumphat over OUR sins BECAUSE He is God and the only one who could do so. And like Abraham who believed what God told him even to the point of believing that God could raise Isaac after he obeyed what God told him in preparing right to the very point of killing Isaac – God says that Abrahams BELIEF was accounted to Abraham as righteousness – God did not say that it was righteousness. So the good news is seen in Abraham’s case, just ass Ephesians 2:8 says, “By grace are ye saved.” Abraham was saved by God’s grace.
Anyway, here is the link to this discussion going on on TMB of all places! If this catches on among professing 2x2s, it will shatter 2x2ism just as it did the World Wide Church of God a few decades ago, which was the first theological cult to ever become a Christian church - it left only a small remnant of Armstrongies constituting the present day Trinitarian replacement of Armstrongism. And like I was saying, if this catches on in 2x2ism a small remnant of 2x2ism will become Christian while the rest will fade out of blow themselves to bits and disappear.
