John 1:1 King James Version (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Yes, there really are people who think that verse establishes the trinity, and no amount of bible quoting will change their minds because they didn't get that doctrine by bible quoting. It actually says "In the beginning was the word." What's a word? A word can be spoken, but spoken words are not God. A word can be printed, but bibles are not God. And a word can be delivered by a person, made flesh so to speak. Now by what stretch of logic do you take that out of context and say that word is God and the other two are not?
If you use the following common definition of "word" as presented in the dictionary that is hard to do.
a single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed.
synonyms: term, name, expression, designation, locution, vocable; formalappellation
"the Italian word for “ham
But if you put it in the context used in the following bible quote telling how God spoke the universe into existence:
Genesis 1 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
Six Days of Creation and the Sabbath
1 In the beginning when God created[a] the heavens and the earth, 2 the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
6 And God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. 8 God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.
9 And God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
Then a "word", as referenced in the bible is, "a recognizable pattern established in a physical medium, by an intelligent being". In nature that pattern is always stored in fields made up of quarks, electrons, photons, and higgs bosons that are differentiated from each other by their spin. As, these quarks were gathered and entangled into fields, they became recognizable as information, stored in atoms of matter, that are embedded and entangled within the higgs field.
I believe, that is what happened when God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. And then God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas.
In that quote the "waters under the sky" are, the Higgs bosons and photons we now understand as the Higgs field, being organized into the "quarks and electrons" we view as "matter" and the "photons and Higgs bosons" we view (in our minds eye) as the building blocks of the "Higgs field".
So, that is the context I use (a scientific interpretation of the data we observe in nature) to determine logical understanding of the meaning of the word "word".
Therefore anything that physically represents an Idea created by God the Father is the "Living Word of God".
So, I believe both, the words written in the "atoms of nature" and "the words written in the "atoms of every Holy Bible" are the "Living Word of God". I also believe that same person became flesh and dwelt among us as "Jesus Christ" as it states in John 1:6
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. 9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. 12 But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth. 15 (John testified to him and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me.’”) 16 From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17 The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known.
Verse 18 sums it up. But, some translations read:
18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten [a]Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
If, you put the following definitions of words "bosom" and "declared" in context, you can see why God (as revealed in nature) is always refereed to in the feminine (Like Mother Nature). But, when The Creator of "Mother Nature" enters the creation as a human being, He enters in the masculine form as The Man "Jesus Christ"
