I was going to post a discussion on a Baptist discussion-board, and saw that I had been BANNED ... makes me feel more like Lord Jesus Christ b-(
The reason they banned me: they say I "deny the diety of Christ." I'm not exactly-sure what they mean---could be that I deny that He was "God on Earth"---by merit of Him 'not being a fair trade for man' (or mankind not being a fair trade for Him) if He WERE 'God on Earth.'
I've heard pastors (priests, deacons, etc.) say that what happened was He put His Godhood aside for His entire life (that's why He PRAYED TO GOD right up until He 'relinquished His spirit' ... did He pray any AFTER His resurrection?) That's what they mean when they say 'He became poor for our sake'---like when Abraham nearly went through with 'putting his beloved son up for sacrifice.' God the Father TOTALLY LOST God the Son to 'the world,' where He stayed through until death on a cross (unlike the Prodigal Son, who--desiring the comforts he remembered from home--chickened-out and ran back to his forgiving father).
