Ken:

You wrote:The question was “Is Jesus a complete God by himself apart form the Holy Spirit, and God the Father? And is it the same for the other two God heads?” Now I will list 2 of the many ways this question can be answered.

1. Yes Jesus is a complete God by himself, the same for the Holy Spirit, and God the Father. To which I would ask “now doesn’t that suggest polythiesm?” To which you can answer “Yes”! (erin aka holli4782 takes this position)

Another way this question can be answered is:

2. No! Jesus, God the father, and the Holy Spirit are only a fraction of a complete God by themselves but when combined they all make up the one complete God that we worship

These are the types of answers I was expecting

You were expecting these types of answers because your mindset is such that only these types of answers are acceptable as far as you are concerned.

Your question is itself is an unreasonable question because of the erroneous assumptions your mindset has imposed.

The phrase ‘complete God by himself’ is a theologically irrational notion from the outset.

Jesus is never, in relation to the Father or the holy spirit, ‘by himself’. Trinitarian theory states this quite clearly.

Jesus is not just ‘a God’, he is God. The Holy Spirit is not just a God, He/she is God.

The Father is not a chief God, He is, with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the only God.

Given the conceptual flaws in your original question, it is no surprise to me that we could not answer it to your satisfaction.

Love Chris.
