Jesus proved he was mortal in not only was he born.....but he also died as a man.Jehovah IS the Alpha and Omega.......never had a beginning or will have an ending.Jesus always identified his father as God.
I believe in God. Jesus Christ is God's son. Yes,Jesus was first-born of ALL creation.Thats why he is referred to as a "begotten son"....directly created by His father Jehovah and used as his fathers master worker in creation.
EX:Let US make man in Gods image.Note US is plural.
Jesus was not a creation of God. He is a part of the trinity. He always existed being with the Father. As John describes it "In the beginning there was the Word. And the Word was with God. And the Word was God".
Now I know you well enough by now to know you won't accept anything the Watchtower doesn't teach (and they deny the trinity).
And I'm sure you'll point out the term 'Trinity' isn't in the Bible, but concept is. Jesus says "I and the Father are One." Jesus accepts worship and so forth. Calling Him a "creation" is an insult to His divinity.
Col 1:15...First born of all creation.Jesus again was mortal.......he died!!!And it took his father to resurrect him to live again!!
I and the father are one in the sense they have the same justice and love etc.Just as a son and father can be the same as humans.Afterall Jesus did say his father was greater then i in the sense that HE is GOD!!Never once does Jesus claim to be God.But Jehovah through-out bible does and says there were noo other gods before HIM and he IS GOD and will NOT share that.Jesus represents his father.
As i told you before with manmade judges on earth when you stand before them you stand before God...NOT the man in the sense of he represents justice and love.If his ways are NOT the same as Gods then he doesnt represent him.Everything Jesus did represented his father thats why he said they were one.
You said it yourself,"trinity isnt in the bible"...and it isnt!!!Take the time to read the link.Even when bible backs up the truth many are still ignorant as was shown in Jesus day when they still questioned him and eventually killed him.
As the bible explains the truth is like a double edge sword and discerns the inclination of the heart.
And might i add...what do you think Gods "begotten son"means???Shows Jesus was DIRECTLY created by Jehovah.The rest of creation Jesus ws Gods master worker.Let US create man.
Cant be any more plainer.
“If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going my way to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am.” (John 14:28) Jesus acknowledged that he and his Father are not equals.
▪ “I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.” (John 20:17) Jesus did not speak of himself as God but spoke of God as a separate Person.
▪ “I have not spoken out of my own impulse, but the Father himself who sent me has given me a commandment as to what to tell and what to speak.” (John 12:49) Jesus’ teachings did not come from him; they came from the Father.
Jesus was born of a woman. "Begotten son" means He took on flesh, but it doesn't mean he was divested of His deity in the Incarnation.
The Father IS greater than the Son because of his role, not because of nature. As Jesus said "I and the Father are One." They are One "substance" as God, revealed in separate three personages. It's the mystery of the Trinity codified in scripture.
Jesus didn't need the Father to raise Him. Check out John 10:18 "No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded."
Lastly, as I'm sure I've said many times over the years, Jesus has referred to Himself as God many times in Scripture. John 10:30 "I and the Father are One" is the most obvious. The Pharisees understood the reference much clearer than the Watchtower apparently, since they wanted Him killed for blasphemy.
John 10:31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”
33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”
Why would they believe He claimed to be God, if He was not CLEARLY communicating that to them?
There are other passages that may help you. Since we've been talking about John, try 14:6-12. And Again, when Jesus accepts Thomas worship as God: John 20:28-29.
