  • When I pray, I say, Dear Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus in Heaven, If anyone can help me I would appreciate it..
  • Jesus is the Son of God. The Bible refers to this many times.

      Thank you so much :)
  • The Bible is an anthology. That means it is composed of writings by different authors at different times and different places. Not all the authors jive with each other. That's the reason why its so difficult to answer that question. That, and the fact that is been translated so many times - and the original manuscripts are gone. Imho, its not to be taken literally. There is some good stuff in their but trying to make sense of it is impossible. 😇

      The reason the authors differ from each other is that their writings were inspired - most notably throughout the Old Testament. This is where interpretation plays a key role. Some actual events were experienced in the New Testament and written about but after the death of Jesus, you're largely looking at more inspiration.
  • Bible says He is the Father, the Son and The Holy Ghost

      OK, I'm game...Where does the Bible "say" that Jesus is the Father, and where does the Bible "say" that Jesus is the Holy Ghost?

      Thank you, Pamela appreciate your comment
  • Yes. That is to say: in mainstream and traditional Christianity, Jesus is God *and* Jesus is the son of God. One prayer "formula" that is commended by Jesus in the Bible is to pray to the Father in Jesus' name, and that is normally how I pray. HOWEVER: note that is NOT the only "prayer formula" permitted or recommended or praised in the Bible.

      Well said! Thank you for your perspective.
  • Neither God is God. Jesus is Jesus.

  • When the Bible was being put together, the bishops and elders who chose which books would be let in (canonized) confronted that issue. Some verses said he was the son, others said he was God. They voted on the issue and decided (by one vote) that Jesus would be the Son of God. So the question you ask is not simple. It was the same Council of Nycea that devised the Holy Trinity, which isn't in the Bible either. You need to Google "Council of Nycea" and read it yourself. Its too much to discuss here.

  • Mainstream protestants and the Catholic and Orthodox have always taught that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are one in being. Unity in Trinity.

  • Puppies grow up to be dogs kittens grow up to be cats. It would stand to reason that the son of a god would grow up to be a god.

      Thanks Linda for your kind comment

      Also I'm a big proponent that asking Him directly is best.
  • Well, theologians spent years arguing over this in the early centuries of Christianity. That's why they came up with the Trinity, which frankly still confuses people. Suffice it to say that Jesus was supposed to be the incarnation (human form) of God on earth, this incarnation having been achieved via the Holy Spirit. In this sense, Jesus was fully human but also partook of the divine substance of God and was thus fully divine, too. Get it? Don't worry about it. The theologians didn't really get it either. They were just engaging in fancy doctrinal gymnastics.

  • Jesus is the son of God, he was the Word in the flesh, God created the world by the Word "Let there be light." Hence, the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, Jesus had the fullness of the Father Colossians 1:19 "For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fullness dwell;" How this works is in Philippians 2 you see that Jesus humbles himself and makes himself nothing. The fullness of the Father is described in Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of council and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the Fear of the Lord. These are the same 7 spirits before the throne in revelations. Jesus means "Yahweh's salvation." Like Jesus, we are to die to the self (flesh) and be born again of the spirit, this is why we are called to be Holy as our Father is Holy, and this is why it is important as to what we do with our temple (body), for it is in this which the Holy spirit of God dwells. The same as it is what comes from the mouth that defiles us as it comes from the heart. We unite in Jesus, then the Father unites all to himself, and will BE all and IN all. 1 Corinthians 15:28 When I prayer I say the Lords Prayer as stated by Jesus in the bible, and I think about every word I am saying. I also ask for mercy and forgiveness.

      You're welcome DWW, remember you don't have to follow the herd, question everything it's the only way to think for yourself, in that way the atheist has parted from faith, which if he doesn't understand it is good, but hasn't questioned atheism either, he has just swapped ideas, so don't be afraid to question Christianity as well, because there is no point kneeling, praying etc, if you don't understand, and it doesn't free you, or change you, DWW.
  • Are you a man or the son of a man? Isaiah 45:10 (KJV) Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?

  • I believe Jesus is the son of God. He said so in Scripture. He is also a god. But even He should not be put above God The Father. "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." I recognize that other people believe differently and I'm fine with that. But I don't want anyone telling me I'm wrong for what I believe. I don't force my religion on others and I don't want anyone forcing their beliefs on me. Respectfully!

  • Both. If you deny that God was manifested in the flesh in Jesus, then you deny the Bible. John 12:45 "And whoever sees Me sees Him who sent Me."

  • He was a nice Jewish boy. Ask his mother.
