Sadly, pagan catholicism and her trinitarian christian daughters render I Timothy 3:16 as; "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness (2150), God (3739) was manifest in the flesh, justified in The Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into Glory."
TRUTH IS! The proper rendering of I Timothy 3:16 IS, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness (2150), which (3739) was manifest in the flesh, justified in The SPIRIT, seen of angels, preached unto the gentiles, believed on in the world, and received up into Glory!"
So what of that pagan greek word (hos #3739) translated as "God" by the pagan trinitarians, and also those pentecostal types whose "imag"ined 'jesus' is "god, and is the father, and is the son"? (And the jw version of the"imag"ined 'jesus' has it's portion in The LIE that IS religion's way as well! Simply, "The Messiah was made so much better than an angel" and IS The Only Begotten Son of Our FATHER and GOD) (Hebrews 1:4, John 3:16)
3739 hos (hos); in strong's concordance.......
including feminine he (hay); and neuter ho (ho); probably a primary word (or perhaps a form of the article 3588); the relatively (sometimes demonstrative) pronoun, who, which, what, that:
3739 hos (including feminine he, and neuter ho); in thayers.......
who, which, what, that
Once again: TRUTH IS! The proper rendering of I Timothy 3:16 IS, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness (2150), which (3739) was manifest in the flesh, justified in The SPIRIT, seen of angels, preached unto the gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into Glory."
Yes, "godliness was manifest in the (likeness of sinful) flesh", for "GOD (HE WHO IS SPIRIT) was IN The Messiah" just as Paul testified! (Romans 8:3, II Corinthians 5:19)
And The SPIRIT that IS "Our FATHER and GOD" is in the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah as well, for we were "Born Again" of HIS Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT after having "received a love of The TRUTH so that we might be saved"! (John 4:24; 20:17; 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, John 14:16-17; 6:63)
And "The Word of TRUTH" testifies that The Messiah IS "The Only Begotten Son" of "The ONE and ONLY TRUE Living GOD (SPIRIT) and FATHER (CREATOR) of ALL"! (John 3:16;17:3, Matthew 16:16, I Corinthians 8:6, Ephesians 1:3; 4:6) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-messiah-servant-of-and-sent-by-only.html
And The Messiah simply testified, "i can do nothing of my own self", and thankfully His brethren evermore REALize the same! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
And as The Messiah, so also do His brethren seek and desire above all else;
"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)
Yes! more than this natural life itself.......
So it is we "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
So Thankfully! "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)
ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
