    1 + 1 son + 1 spirit). The father is not the spirit…the spirit is not the son….the son

    is not the father.

    Note: The word trinity does not appear in the bible…but it is a biblical teaching

    Verses in the bible that say the father is God: (John 6:27, Romans 1:7, 1 peter 1:2)

    Worldly illustration: The US government is one government existing in 3 branches the judicial, legistrative, executive branches. (1 government = 1 judicial branch,+ 1 legistrative branch + 1 executive. The judicial branch is not the legistrative branch, The legistrative branch is not the executive branch…the executive branch is not the judicial branch.

    Note: The US government is a trinity in a sense ....a triune government. I government made of 3 branches…They don’t refer to it as trinity government but it is..

    What is the executive: May veto laws,May refuse to spend money allocated for certain purposes Wages war (has operational command of the military),Makes decrees or declarations (for example, declaring a state of emergency) and promulgates lawful regulations and executive orders,…Often appoints judges ,Has power to grant pardons to convicted criminals

    Names of the legistrative branch: legistrative

    What is the judicial branch: Determines which laws apply to any given case,Determines whether a law is unconstitutional,Has sole power to interpret the law and to apply it to particular disputes May nullify laws that conflict with a more important law or constitution..,Determines the disposition of prisoners,Has power to compel testimony and the production of evidence

    After all if we can do with the US government…couldn’t God do it?

    The word "Easter" is found in the KJV at Acts 12:4. Remember, if you have a question about the bible, just ask an Atheist.

    Only in the King James.......Acts 12:4....other modern Bibles use Passover incorrectly.

    Herod was a pagan and was waiting til after Ishtar (Easter) to prosecute Peter. Passover had already passed. (Then were the days of unleaven bread).

    Do not confuse "Easter" with "Passover". The word Easter comes from the pagan god Ishtar. In the spring they celebrated a fertility rite, which naturally included animals which procreate rapidly, like rabbits, and which produce eggs, like birds. It has nothing to do with the Passover that happened during the Exodus experience, when God delivered His people out of bondage in Egypt. Read the book of Exodus in the Bible.

    The two festivals got mingled together in the early Christian church's attempt to get pagans to join the church, so they allowed them to have their pagan festivals and applied Christian names to them. That's how Christ's birthday got celebrated in mid-December, when the pagans celebrated their end-of-the-year ritual.

    No the word easter isn't in the bible. It's of pagan origin. Which means its not Christian. So its not in the bible.

    Not in English translations. It happened at Passover (which is why the word Paschal is often used) but Easter refers to the resurrection.

    'Easter' is derived from ancient Germanic resurrection holiday.

    Ēostre or Ostara is a goddess in Germanic paganism who, by way of the Germanic month bearing her name, is the namesake of the festival of Easter. Ēostre is attested by Bede in his 8th-century work De temporum ratione, where Bede states that during Ēosturmōnaþ (the equivalent to the month of April) feasts were held in Eostre's honor among the pagan Anglo-Saxons, but had died out by the time of his writing, replaced by the Christian "Paschal month" (a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus).
