exactly what it states, nothing more -- nothing less
One could say "all things are one" and God is the One which encompasses all things, and the one thing God is not is "nothing" or "not God".
that definition binds God, is God not boundless ??
Can't take that to extremes that mess around with language. God is without boundaries or limitations, but that doesn't mean one has to take it to the point of absurdities like "God doesn't exist because God has to include not existing too because God cant be bound to existing" or weird things like that.
but with Jesus, didn't God the father give up his authority to his son ??
meaning the enabled are more important than the enabler....
No, I don't think God gave up authority to Jesus. Jesus was sent by God:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in the son should not perish, but have everlasting life.
doesn't that mean that the son is more important than the father ??
doesn't that mean that god relinquished his power to his son ??
Absolutely not. What does "believing" in Jesus and what Jesus has to say, have to do with relinquishing authority? God sent Jesus to teach the people the way to receive the good rewards in the afterlife, by following the commandments of God and taking them to the extreme, and also avoiding sin to an extreme.
I don't get the impression from that section that any authority was given to Jesus, Jesus himself prays to God, and Jesus himself said that God is the one commanding him. No way is Jesus more important than God. Jesus himself said the most important commandment is that there is only One Lord and that is God.
God is without boundaries or limitations, but that doesn't mean one
in all aspects of human language, isn't the term 'one' the most binding definition or concept there is ??
Not really, if the "one" we are talking about is not a particle, but rather the all encompassing infinite, of which everything is within and made of and made by. Then "One" is all it is, everything is "One" and even if there was nothing else, there would still be "One" and that would be God. An infinite is one, and "everything" is one. God is One in a sense that nothing else can be, because there is nothing like God and there can be no other all encompassing infinite.
