    Re: the whole mind of god

    Without any context, it doesn't really mean anything. All you can do is assume the literal meaning based on each individual word. Why don't you have any context?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: the whole mind of god

    Thank you for reply.
    actually there are some context, but i think it generally possess some meaning,
    "Philo declared the Word or Logos to be the first-born Son of God, the prototypal man in whose image all other men are created. Again, he is the idea, or ideas, the whole mind of God giving out of himself in creation."

    Re: the whole mind of god

    Please explain more, somehow I can't understand it. I think this is due to cultural deference.

    Re: the whole mind of god

    There's no cultural deference. There might be some cultural difference.

    Do you understand each individual word?

    Re: the whole mind of god

    Everything that God knows and thinks is the "mind of God."

    Jesus, as the Second Person in the Trinity, is entirely God. He is the entire mind of God, all that God is, entering into the world that He created. The infinite in a finite human body.

    This is the essential mystery of the Christian faith; that the infinite becomes incarnate and dwells among us. Going so far as to sacrifice Himself in order to pay the infinite debt created by sin. No one else is infinite, so no sacrifice of humanity could pay the debt. Only God Himself, joining together with humanity in the Second Person could make the infinite sacrifice and repair the rift between man and God.

    This is not language, but Christian thought. That's probably enough of an answer (if not too much) for this forum.

    This is language + culture

    I understand each individual word. But I want to ask something else, do you correct me? I mean isn't my sentence correct or you think there is no cultural deference but some tiny thing between me and you, my region and you region.
    My propose here is to become sure that i understand exactly the way you use the term "culture".

    She was correcting your misspelling of "difference" as "deference".
