  • Split personality disorder...Bible style Or inbreeding...West Virginia style
  • I believe this means spiritually they are one.
  • it could be a bizarre indication if incest or an admission of schizophrenia but most christians feel it is an expression that the godhead is a trinity, somehow separate but one. True monotheistic religions consider it polytheism.
  • "I and My Father are one" simply means that they are 100% in agreement! (together on the same page so-to-speak). He also commanded us believers to be "one" with Him! That can only happen when we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. "I and My Father are one." Jn 10:30 "...be one, as We are." Jn17:11 "...as He is, so are we in this world." 1Jo 4:17 And when we speak, the Holy Ghost gives us what to say (He is speaking through us - for one motive: to save the hearer's soul for heaven sake). So when someone mocks you, they are mocking God/His words, and God said He will not be mocked! That's why blaspheme of the Holy Ghost is the only sin God said He cannot forgive, not in this life or the next! "be one" NOT separate! God hates religions of man, they separate His children, cause wars, arrogance (God hates arrogance He said): "Whose got 'THE' religion, the biggest and best, most impressive, crystal chandeliers, fanciest robes, paintings, sofistication, etc. (this is NOT "Love thy neighbor as thyself" nor "humble"!!!) "Avoid those who separate" 1Cr 1:10 "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
  • Adam's grasping for knowledge might be seen as the root cause of man's reliance on himself, on his belief that his abilities and judgement determine his fate. Yet, it seems many things are beyond our control, and even the heart may present us with yearnings for peace and justice that elude us. If we could drop our defenses, our conditioned desires we might arrive at where Jesus claimed to be, back to oneness with god as the lilies of the field, as the birds. In his time, as now, interested parties found him a threat. He might have escaped, but he submitted to the father's will.
  • It means he is gay
  • Sounds gay. If they interpret the rest of the bible as anti-gay, they'd have to at least consider it in this case.
  • It means he was insane. After all, we lock people up in mental institutions these days if they claim to be God.
  • the belief in christianity is that the Father (G-d) and the Son (Jesus) were one in the same. this has a lot to do with the belief in the trinity as well. the Father and the Son are the same because Jesus was the physical form of G-d on earth. this of course is the extremely simple version of a very detailed theological belief.
  • Father, son and holy spirit are all the same guy. Creepy, really.
  • In the same sense that you and your mother and father are one. We being made in God's image... It's the same thing.
  • I believe it refers to the trinity. God- Our Father, Son- Jesus, & The Holy Spirit. They are all as one but are different. Im not real sure, and I have a hard time understanding this as well.:)
  • Good question. This is an example of Delusions of Grandeur, sometimes called Megalomania. It's covered in the DSM. You'd be surprised how many people think they're God, or Jesus, or Elvis, or Robert E. Lee. Delusions of grandeur - "a delusion (common in paranoia) that you are much greater and more powerful and influential than you really are; http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Delusions+of+grandeur "Megalomania - "a psychological state characterized by delusions of grandeur; "a psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of wealth, power, or omnipotence."http://www.thefreedictionary.com/megalomania
  • It means that the bond between them is a perfect match. Some believe that Jesus is God in the human form. This is not so, otherwise he would not have lifted his head toward the heavens and spoke with his Father (God) telling him to forgive those for not knowing what they are doing.
  • he has a Wii?
  • That depends upon whom you ask. It is interpretive. Some Christians interpret it literally. These Christians are known as Trinitarian and believe that the Abrahamic deity, Yahweh, is three personalities in one person - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This interpretation has its problems, though. For instance, that means Jesus spent a lot of time praying to Himself, and in effect said, "Not My will but My will be done." It gets a little silly. Those Christians who believe strongly in the omnipresence of Yahweh believe it refers to everyone (including Jesus) being part of Yahweh, and Yahweh part of them. Some Christians believe it means Jesus was doing the work of His Father. Unbelievers generally believe Jesus meant the second one (immanent divinity) or that He had Multiple Personality Disorder or some other mental disorder.
  • Jesus had a messiah complex. No, just kidding. It's the new math. You know like, if c, the speed of light, is recognized as a constant, and for the sake of simplification, we refer to it as 1, E=m(1^2), or E=m x 1, or E=m. In this case, Ethereal=Messiah. Er sumthin'...
  • John 10:30: When saying, "I and the Father are one," did Jesus mean that they were equal? Some Trinitarians say that he did. But at John 17:21, 22, Jesus prayed regarding his followers: "That they may all be one," and he added, "that they may be one even as we are one." He used the same Greek word (hen) for "one" in all these instances. Obviously, Jesus’ disciples do not all become part of the Trinity. But they do come to share a oneness of purpose with the Father and the Son, the same sort of oneness that unites God and Christ. As a son, Jesus ascribed superior authority, knowledge and greatness to his Father. He stated: "This sitting down at my right hand and at my left is not mine to give, but it belongs to those for whom it has been prepared by my Father." (Matt. 20:23) "Concerning that day or the hour nobody knows, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father." (Mark 13:32) "Why do you call me good? Nobody is good, except one, God." (Mark 10:18) "The Father is greater than I am." (John 14:28) Jesus acknowledged his Father as his God. Just before his death he cried out: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matt. 27:46) Then, after his resurrection, he told Mary Magdalene: "I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God." (John 20:17) Finally, in a revelation to the apostle John, Jesus Christ identified himself as the first of God’s creations, saying: "These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God." see —Revelation. 3:14; John 1:14; Col. 1:15. Please look these scriptures up in your own Bible.
  • Whatever God feels, his Son, Jesus, concurs.
  • The religion I was raised in would say that they are one in purpose, but not the same person.
  • it means they are the same person
  • It means they are "in agreement." The trinity is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are seperate, yet one. They are God. IT's a very complex subject. Many say that Jesus wasn't/isn't the Son of God. HE IS! They are one!
  • Keeping in mind scriptures such as: interpretations belong to God(Gen40:8), all scripture is inspired of God and benificial for teaching, reproving, and setting things straight(2Tim3:16), and not to go beyond the things written(1Cor4:6), I think it would be best to consider the (1)context, (2)how John sums up his understanding of the things written, and (3)how the Bible uses "one" in other instances when there appears to be more than one person. (1)After saying "I and my Father are one" in John10:30, verse 33 shows that the Jews thought Jesus was making himself a god, in verse 34 he quoted from Psalms82:6 where judges were called gods, and verse 36 he reiterated that he said he was Gods son. (It was the unreasoning Jews that thought he was saying he was God and verses 34-36 show him defending himself against that charge.) (2)John confirms that the things written down were written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God. (3)In John chapter 17, Jesus is praying to the Father(vs 1) who is "the only true God"(vs 3) concering his followers "that they all may be one"(vs 21) "that they may be one just as we are one"(vs 22) When speaking about baptized followers of Christ, Paul said at Gal3:28 "you are all one in Christ" When speaking about a man and woman in marriage, Paul said at Eph5:31 "the two will be one flesh" When Paul was speaking about those involved in the ministry(1Cor 3:5-8), in this case himself and Apollos, he said at verse 8 "he that plants and he that waters are one" Jesus had stated at John8:17,18 that in the Law that the witness of "two" men is true and then showed himself and the Father were "two" who bear witness about him. I believe that the Bible teaches that the oneness is in the spirit or being united in the same line of thought.(Eph4:3,13; 1Cor1:10)
  • To know what Jesus meant by saying "I and the Father ARE one" in John 10:30 please read from the beginning of the passage (verse 22) for context. Below is a quotation from verse 26 "But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one" You'll see that Jesus is talking to those who are questioning him, and he’s contrasting them with his true followers. He’s saying that the followers are so strong in their belief that no one can make them disbelieve in him (“pluck them out of my hand”) nor can anyone make them disbelieve in God (“pluck them out of my Father’s hand”) and it is in this sense that Jesus and God are one. The passage is NOT talking about physical oneness but oneness in faith and purpose. An employee can say to a difficult customer “you can see the manager but he/she will tell you the same thing. We stand together as one on this issue.” Notice also in the same passage Jesus says “My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all” Here "them" refers to the true followers and there is a clear physical distinction of the giver (the Father) and the receiver (Jesus). Furthermore in the same passage the Father is described as “greater than all” – they can’t be physically the same if one is greater.
  • I agree about not downrating someones opinions or answers and also we are not to judge others for what they believe in, and no way would I be in agreement to shove beliefs down someones throat or scream out hell and damnation, but as I recall the bible says we must go and preach the word and that is what I also see here , good scripture choices and posting of them as well
  • Have you ever heard the old sayings....Like Father, like Son. Or maybe another one like.....I can see a lot of your Father in you. Or maybe.....I can see the Spirit of your Father within you. Or maybe....You've got your Fathers blood..........I hope this answer helped......Plus 5 for your question. Have a Great Day!!!..........M.C.S.
  • John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Just replace ""the Word" with "Jesus" and you got your answer. Revelation 1:7 Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen. Revelation 1:8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." Right there was Jesus calling himself "the Almighty" So, when Jesus said, "I and my Father are one" it means just what it says, they are one being.
  • Jesus was a sperm in some guy's scrotum just like all of us. So we are essentially part of another person :P
  • Sounds to me like He's talking in riddles. Not a good way to lure converts to His religion, IMHO...
  • im just gonna take a blind stab here...id say their the same person but im no expert.
  • He is three-in-one. God the Son,God the Spirit, and God the Holy Ghost.
  • It means that he is just as unreal as his father.
  • He shagged his own mother to conceive himself. Creepy. Jerry Springer wouldn't even allow that shit on his show.
  • jesus was god in man form.
  • Jesus was telling his disciples that the "Father and I are one" in purpose. Much like when two people get married the two become one flesh. It's not literal but one in purpose. "I have given them the glory that you have given me, in order that they may be one just as we are one." (John 17:22) Even a football team can become "one".
  • That they are one in belief and purpose. We are encouraged to be 'one' with them.
