Jesus lay dead from Friday until Sunday. If the contention is that Jesus is God, was the world/universe without a "working" God for three days? Was somebody "delegated" to be God? Can this be done? Does this make sense?
It can only be that Jesus is not God. It can only be that YHWH is the God.
(I am no J Witness. In fact, I consider all organized churches to be the agents of anti-Christ)
There is only one God the Father and one Lord Jesus Christ. He is the son of God but never claimed to be God. He is always lower than God. The trinity doctrine is not found in the bible but was invented in the 4th century I believe.
To answer your question: when Jesus was in the grave His Father was in Heaven as He was before, during and after Jesus' Earthly ministry.
It can make sense if you think about what characteristics and properties god exhibits and personifies and how he works his mysterious ways with men. An ethereal mixture of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, god is like water, and like water god can exist in any state just like water can exist in the state of gas, liquid or solid with all of the parts making up the whole remaining intact in any and all states.
And like water, we can filter out the particles and other toxins leaving a pure and clean liquid free of any undesirable impurities. With god, it is these undesirable impurities that are attributed to the nature of man, all the evil and cruelty that is the flesh having been collected throughout time all the way back to mans original sin.
It was this evil flesh which god filtered and removed from himself to set upon the Earth as his son and free man from the burden of his sins, and so it was this son that died from the wickedness of other men. For three days, all that was impure of the flesh did not exist upon the Earth as god wiped clean the slate of mans malevolence from existence.
Since god only removed that which was impure from himself, god obviously did not die but instead entered a state of complete purity bathing all of mankind in his vestal glory those three days his son lay dead, and then resurrected and giving back to himself the saved and the righteous son, sent back to be mixed in with the liquid purity of god, resurrecting a new covenant of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Perhaps we can then believe that god is like a puddle that man steps into as he saunters through life aimlessly and without hope, cleansing himself now and again through the purity and essence that is god.
Or, maybe it's just gods way of 'piddling' on the Earth.
I wouldn't be too worried about it, it's all bull*hit anyway!
No gods, so no sons of gods so no problem.
ohhh crap! ok
I have to answer
God the father, God the son (Jesus Christ) and God the HOly Spirit are three in one God. Trinity.
So God the father took care of things.
Who the heck is YayweH?? Isnt'he the same as Jesus but called by a diff name? What bible do you find him in.?
This anwer is Soooooooooooooooo already known
Jesus is God, son of the Father.
They both are one just as I am one with the father.
For the father and the sons are one.
to answer your question, No the world was not without a 'working God' as you stated, Jesus is the Son of God The Father, so to put that in your terms' God the Father was still working' so no the world was not without a God.
There was this belief of mine that I'd like to share and I hope you won't criticize me with these .. When Christ died, He ascended to the Father's throne to 'report' there and went to the place what we call Abraham's bosom.
So is God a single parent then? where's Mrs God? and who is Gods Dad? Is Gods father the Uber God and who's his Dad? - arghhhhhh
No, god made himself, became his own son, then killed himself.
It all makes sense to the seriously indoctrinated psychotics.
Mormons believe that God and Jesus and the Holy Ghost are separate. They also believe in a mother in heaven. One of the many reasons they are considered heretical.
But no matter how you explain it, it never quite adds up to one Christian sect or another. They each have their own take on what it "really" is, using minimal fact and mostly opinion. Hence the different denominations and arguments. Everybody has an argument for or against, no matter which side of the Christian fence you're on.
Hence, there is no real proof of much of it. Hence, it's wise to stick with facts. And what we actually do know is remarkably small. The rest is some one's opinion.

This is not a repetition nor scam.My previous argument on the topic could not be augmented in time and so I am putting it up as a separate topic. Mr. Dave Mathews has misunderstood that I was hiding behind some esoteric argument.So here goes the...

No where in the bible that I know of does it state that we are to love the Holy Spirit, why not?I find it interesting that the bible does not inclued love towards the Holy Spirit. However, the Holy Spirit is inclued when we are baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy...

WHERE DO THE CHRISTIANS GET TRINITY FROM?The bulk of Christendom believes that God is one but triune, an existence of three in one. They believe that the trinity comprises of the father, son and the holy ghost. These all three aren’t three different Gods but one. Let us...

Catholics Protestants think Jesus was god; rather as some say he was "god-the-father"; then the Christians say that Mary was begotten by god-the-father.It is a wrong concept; because that would makes Jesus , I take refuge with the Creator God, husband of Mary.I don't think it is a correct...
