So you don't class the WTBTS as Christian?
Well, I suppose that's progress.
JamesJah

I do not expect any person who is still tied to the trinity doctrine to have any understanding of the subject.

It would appear that many who claim they know Christ have any real understanding of what his purpose was or what he taught.


Who are true followers of Christ's teaching today?

Anyone can 'follow' Christ's teaching.  Most good folk follow at least some of His teaching, even if they don't do so consciously or knowingly.   Just like anyone can claim the label 'christian': doesn't necessarily make them so - a bit like JWs or LDS, for example.    People who have no understanding of the triune nature of GOD, simply will not understand.

Rather than asking questions about 'who are true followers' and looking outward at others, maybe your time would be better spent looking at your own relationship with the risen Lord?

It is perhaps where to start but having a good relationship with the lord starts by knowing which Lord and what he requires does it not?

Matthew 7:21
Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will.

Now can I ask who is it that is doing the will of the Father?

There is but one :ORD, James...and that title was not given Him by man.
That LORD is tthe One and only way to the Father, since He Himself is God.
That LORD, James, is the One to whom every part of me belongs, body, mind and spirit.
That LORD has been my Lord, Saviour, Guide and Friend since He graciously answered my call to make Him the centre of all that I am, on September 6, 1977. Since that day I have tried to serve Him, failing in the act of service all too often, but rejoicing in the all-consuming love, joy, peace His presence in every part of my life, at every moment, has given me.
Galatians 2: 19-20.

Your singular lack of response to my statement shows just how little you know this amazing God who is Creator, Sustainer and Saviour.
I'm saddened that your failure to respond to the challenge of the PERSONAL relationship in Christ which surrendering to Him offers speaks volumes for the paucity of your argument.

Galatians 3:20-22
Now there is no mediator when just one person is involved, but God is only one. Is the Law, therefore, against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, righteousness would actually have been by means of law. But the Scripture handed all things over to the custody of sin, so that the promise resulting from faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those exercising faith.

Who is speaking truth today. and telling people about the Good News of the Kingdom of the true God ruled over by his son?



(Micah 4:2, 3
Come, you people, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will instruct us about his ways, and we will walk in his paths.” For out of Zion law will go forth, and the word of Jehovah out of Jerusalem. And he will certainly render judgment among many peoples, and set matters straight respecting mighty nations far away. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. They will not lift up sword, nation against nation, neither will they learn war anymore.

Matthew 13:18, 1
Now listen to the illustration of the man who sowed. 19 Where anyone hears the word of the Kingdom but does not get the sense of it, the wicked one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart; this is the one sown alongside the road.

Matthew 13:24-27
He presented another illustration to them, saying: “The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25 While men were sleeping, his enemy came and over sowed weeds in among the wheat and left. When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?

Matthew 13:30
Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers:
First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up;
then gather the wheat into my storehouse.


1 Corinthians 15:22-24
.For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each one in his own proper order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence.

 Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father,

How many people hand the Kingdom over to the Father?


1 Corinthians 15:27, 28
For God “subjected all things under his feet. But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him.

But when all things will have been subjected to him,

then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.


How can this be if the son is an equal god?

Linguistically, this can only make sense if you are talking about the proposition that there are (at least) two gods. People who believe that (like JWs) don't believe that they are equal. Christians, of course, don't believe that there are two Gods at all. So who do you think believes that there are two equal gods?
