Myth of Osiris and Isis. From right to left: Isis, her husband Osiris, and their son Horus, the protagonists of the Osiris myth, in a Twenty-second Dynasty statuette The Osiris myth reached its basic form in or before the 24th century BCE.
Many of its elements originated in religious ideas, but the conflict between Horus and Set may have been partly inspired by a regional struggle in Egypt's early history or prehistory. Scholars have tried to discern the exact nature of the events that gave rise to the story, but they have reached no definitive conclusions. Parts of the myth appear in a wide variety of Egyptian texts, from funerary texts and magical spells to short stories. The story is, therefore, more detailed and more cohesive than any other ancient Egyptian myth.

This series is extracted from a paper I delivered at the APA in Chicago last month. I’ve basically just cut up the paper into smaller chunks. Arius and Athanasius, part 1 — How is the Son produced? (JT) Untitled. Jesus' prayers open our understanding to the majesty of the Incarnation, for through them we grasp the divine-human relationship between God and His Son.
Trinitarians often refer to statements Jesus made about His father, including those in His prayers, in an effort to prove that two persons were involved - who they identify as God the Son and God the Father. Since they reason that only persons and not natures communicate with each other, they regard the prayers as clear evidence that Jesus is a separate person from "the Father". Moreover, they cite Jesus' remarks about the Father as scriptural support for the Trinitarian theory. However, the prayers and remarks by Jesus destroy any concept of God as being a trinity of co-equal, and co-existent persons.

This is a 'blended' family; Zeus and Hera are husband and wife, but Athena is not Hera's daughter. The history of this family is dysfunctional in the extreme, featuring cannibalism and incest: "Later, Kronos forced himself upon Rheia, And she gave birth to a splendid brood: Hestia and Demeter and gold-sandalled Hera, Strong, pitiless Hades, the underworld lord, The booming Earth-shaker, Poseidon, and finally Zeus, a wise god, our Father in heaven Under whose thunder the wide world trembles. " Rheia craftily substituted a stone for infant Zeus, a substitution which Kronos failed to notice: "She came first to Lykos, travelling quickly by night, And took the baby in her hands and hid him in a cave, An eerie hollow in the woods of dark Mount Aigaion.
Athena continues the family tradition of abnormal births, springing fully formed from Zeus' forehead, clad in battle armor: The Pagan Trinity, and Saint Brigit....Photo Twelve. Trinity of Three Gods. Trinity Gods As Proposed By Trinitarians TRINITY PROVEN FALSE By Pastor G.

None of the ancient scholars ever teach and explicitly warn against, is that the Godhead is separated into three "persons" which compose a family or tribe able to stand side by side or face to face and hold committee members. This heresy has been propagated in some churches of Christ and to confess the SHEMA that God is One can get you "sat on the back pews" as they say around here. John Mark Hicks notes that this has recently been promoted by Max Lucado and Rubel Shelly who have brought you more sowing of discord than the body of Christ can stand without lots of sheep getting lost.
