I do believe that Jesus was and is God, and that he was truly human, and that that humanity is still in his possesion, the Holy Spirit too,I believe you cannot separate from God the Father or God the Son, as the WT and others do claiming the H.S is just a " active force " ( what is an inactive force ?)
So I do not think we are poles apart as to belief, I just think that if we are teaching, we should make plain that this is our appreciation, and the student is free to disagree, as scripture is not plain on this,and many many other issues.
For us to insist that our view is "Truth" that others must accept ,is of the same terrible arrogance that caused great polemical diatribes in the past, with scriptures flying back and forth to no avail and virtual hatred being engendered between the combatants, i.e Luther and Zwingli.
p.s By going beyond what is written, I did mean contradicting what Jesus and the canonical writers said. But, as above I think it behooves us to be honest and say that our beliefs,shaped in many ways, are simply that, our beliefs, if we cannot point to plain Biblical proof. Our beliefs may be, and I hope they are, true, but they are not Holy Writ.
