Son of God

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: RE: WHY GOD CANNOT HAVE A SON

"No profit in all religious history have ever seen god."...

Well, I have, so you don't know what you are talking about. During a heart attack at the end of 2010, I had a vision of Jesus Christ, clothed in white light. initially I asked "what must I do to have the pain go away?" But it occurred to me that this was not the right question. Then I asked "what must I learn, what must I take away from this experience?" Instantly the pain was gone and I stood up, said "wonderful" (my girlfriend asked later "why did you say wonderful, you just had a heart attack?!). At the hospital, the doctors confirmed that there was no damage of any extent to the heart; only a couple of days later did I realize that I had been "born-again"/spiritually reborn. God, the Father, definitely has a Son: he saved my life and saved my soul: I know absolutely. But you are right in one sense in that no one can see God (the Father) and live. At another time, I awoke in the middle of the night and was suddenly aware of the presence of someone else in the room. I looked up and saw no one but realized that it was the presence of Jesus Christ; then suddenly I felt very strongly the presence of three - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It was stunning. I have seen miracles take place that defy explanation. No, God the Father most definitely has a Son, through whom we may become his sons/daughters. I know, not because I believe, but because I have experienced.
