To Alex: Let me educate you

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Jesus is the son of GOD

Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), Feb 21, 2006 at 16:28

Dear Alex,

After I read your comments I came out with two conclusions. Either you don't read the Bible or you don't know how to read. You said only Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God. Well let's see what Jesus said about the issue.

"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." (1 John 1:18)


"Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; everyone who confesses the Son has the Father also. Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father." (1 John 2:22-24)

"The Son of God was revealed for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8b)

"And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us." (1 John 3:23)

At this point I have to assume you probably don't know what Jesus being the son of God means. Well the Son is second in the Holy trinity. When Jesus said he proceeded from God it means He's of the same essence as God. Let me illustrate with an example from the bible.

"I and the Father are one." 31The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?" 33The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God," (John 10:30-33)

Now why did the Jews accused Jesus of making himself out to be God? The reason they did is because they knew what Jesus implied when he called himself Son of God. You have to keep in mind these were pharisees, which means they were experts in the Torah. They knew when Jesus called himself the Son of God it means from the same essence as God.

By the way Richard Lion Heart was a great warrior who kicked Saladin's ass.
