    You are aware that calling God the Father, God the Son, and God the HS, Persons, is inappropriate, because they are not referred to as Persons anywhere in the bible. That is because at different times in the bible each one is referred to as Gods. But never Persons.

    So as a student of the bible, tell me why you insist on calling them Persons?

    The appropriate designation is Gods. And if you insist say 3 Gods = 1 God. Since they are all Gods.

    But you can't call them Gods, because then you would be called polythiestic, and no better than the pagan Greeks. So do you think changing Gods to Persons solves your problem? No. Only because of the decline in pagans and the accomodation that Christian people decided to give their theological doctors, they accept Persons, even though it is unbiblical.

    Peter1000, you are not called a person in the Bible. What should i conclude?

    You can conclude anything you want about me, but God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and the HS are not referred to as Persons in the bible. Therefore in your central theory of who God is, I would not be using unbiblical names. Do as you want, but it is part of a facade rather than truth.

    Jesus' eyelashes are not mentioned in the Bible. Is He eyelash-less?

    Yes, but God's hand, face, and backparts are all mentioned in the bible and so that is the reason that the Church of Jesus Christ believes that God is like unto man in form and substance (i.e. flesh and bone and spirit). Although God's flesh and bone and spirit is a resurrected and perfectly exalted flesh and bone and spirit. That is a lot different than mortal flesh and bone and spirit. Nonetheless, God is in the form and substance as man.

    Yes, Jesus has eyelashes, even though it is not stated in the bible. But because God does have hands, a face, and backparts because it is mentioned in the bible, we figure He also has eyelashes too, because man does. Good question.

    So he had no personality? Or was his personality like that of a winsome rabbit?

    Interesting guess as to the personality of God. I would not have that in print if I were you.

    Should I have said curelom rather than rabbit?

    Im sure you have read the NT. If you had read it in the right mind, you would know the personality of God the Father, beause it is just like the personality of His Son, Jesus.

    To even comtemplate, or fool around saying that God's personality approaches that of a rabbit or a curelom, to me is a bit blasphemous.

    Nor does the Bible refer to them anywhere as personages.

    Speaking of being polytheistic --- LDS claim they are not polytheists, yet Mormonism believes in a plurality of gods:
    “In the very beginning the Bible shows there is a plurality of Gods beyond the power of
    refutation. It is a great subject I am dwelling on. The word Eloheim ought to be in the plural all
    the way through—Gods. The heads of the Gods appointed one God for us; and when you take
    [that] view of the subject, it sets one free to see all the beauty, holiness and perfection of the
    Gods.”
    (Teachings, p. 372.)​
