  3. Didn’t the Father glorify His Son with His own Spirit, and the Son then poured forth of his own Spirit on the day of Pentecost those things which the people were able to see and hear (Acts 2:33)?
  4. Isn’t it the case that the Godhead is made up of two, God the Father and God the Son united both in name (Jehovah in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament) and in purpose?

  5. What do employers and employees owe each other?
