    (Concerning the 2° reply, of the man at the right)
    It is very easy to say to students of the Bible that they have to embrace the dogmatic teachings; No they do have to start with an open mind and see what the Word of God really says .
    All human doctrines should be put aside to come to a clear insight of the Bible.

    the cherry-pie and the water are adequate he says but what about cherries and pies?

    • The students were not told to blindly embrace dogma. The whole endeavor of Think-Faith and the Q&As are to encourage thought. It was even stated multiple times in this video that people need to dig into scripture and find out for themselves what Gods Word says.

    Nowhere in the Bible is said there is a god the Father, a god the son and a god the Holy Spirit. In the Torah is clearly said there is Only One True God of gods, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah.
    the man says it gets confusing, but god is a God or Order and a God of Clarity Who never tell lies. So when He said the man standing in the river Jordan do you think He told the Truth when He said Jesus was His “only begotten beloved son”?

    • I can see how Brandon’s comments about “confusion” could be taken that way. However, I think what he was referring to was not a confusion created by God, buy man’s inability to grasp certain things about an infinite God. His ways are higher than ours, and His foolishness is wiser than the wisdom of man. As Paul says, we see imperfectly as through a glass dimly.

      As for your question about where the Bible mentions God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit, I did address this briefly in this video (second from the right). Both the Son and the Spirit are described in Scripture as having attributes and performing acts which only God Himself can claim.
      Jesus forgiving sin (paralytic lowered thru the roof), receiving worship, etc. The Spirit is described with personal attributes, defining him as an actual separate person. But He’s also described with attributes and acts only God can claim.
