Jesus Is God, but NOT the Father

Yes, according to the inspired Word of God
John 5 (KJV)
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

The matter here is that if God is the Father of Jesus (and we know that He is), then even though Jesus is the Son of God, then HE IS ALSO EQUAL TO GOD. EQUAL MEANS = ??? Jesus can't be a lower god, can He? Lower is not equal in mathematics.

The claim that if Jesus is God then He is also the Father, is now debunked, null and void.

Shame on anyone believing that the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ would be just a (g)od.
The first "gods" were Heaven and Earth. Feminists like Jeanene Reese ACU and in all of the lost universities claim that Adam served the EARTH and she is the mother and therefore females now lust to assume Scribe-Hypocrite Roles (Jesus referencing Isaiah 29; Ezekiel 33) NAMED slick speakers for hire, singers or instrument players. These were always the mark of Rebellion against Jesus and the worship of the Jewish WISDOM or Sophia beginning with Eve-Zoe. Later triads were descendants of the first family. The deep or waters as TEHOM is TIAMAT among the Babylonians and modern ceremonial legalism.

"I'm My Own Grandpa"

Now, many many years ago
When I was twenty three
I was married to a widow
Who was pretty as could be

This widow had a grown-up daughter
Had hair of red
My father fell in love with her
And soon the two were wed

This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life
My daughter was my mother
'Cause she was my father's wife

To complicate the matters
Even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy

My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle
Though it made me very sad

For if he was my uncle
That also made him the brother
Of the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother

I'm my own grandpa
I'm my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grandpa

My father's wife then had a son
That kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild
For he was my daughter's son

My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue
Because, she is my wife
She's my grandmother too

I'm my own grandpa
I'm my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grandpa

Now, if my wife is my grandmother
Then, I am her grandchild
And every time I think of it
It nearly drives me wild

For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw
As the husband of my grandmother
I am my own grandpa

I'm my own grandpa
I'm my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grandpa

I'm my own grandpa
I'm my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grandpa

I guess that means we will not talk. Is that real enough? Donnie, you have never shown a mature bone towards speaking/debating the word of God. I still recall where you were one of those who was taken off the faithmatters Christian forum board for a time for unchristlike behavior.

That behavior hasn't changed.

Donnie, you said "When someone hesitates and waits for me to publish some of your not-so-Christ-like messages, what does that mean?'

What it means is that you 'hesitate' to publish my messages because you don't like the cold hard facts and even more.....you need time for a good comeback.

It is your site. You pay for it and you can do whatever you want, even if isn't in line with what Christ would have you to do.

It's called....sin.

That is why I have continued to post here. You don't like anyone who gives you the Truth.

I just don't like the fact that you represent anything to do with the church o Christ. You don't deserve it.

The best thing??? I know for a fact that there are leaders at Madison, both past and present, who laugh at your Donnie because of your deplorable behavior.

I will leave it at that.

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Dave,

I don't recall having engaged in any discussion at faithmatters. (I would suggest to Ken to no longer hesitate and wait for me to publish Dave's messages that are doctrinal [true or false] in nature and content.)

This would be the accurate statement: "Donnie does not represent anything to do with the LIBERAL, PROGRESSIVE, CULTURE-DRIVEN, Community Church-transitioned 'Church of Christ.'"

Now, you're really deviating from discussing the thread you created.

Don't worry. There are numerous passages that will teach Bible students that "the Father" is "the God" OF our Lord Jesus Christ . I will list them later on.[/color]

Servetus wrote some wonderful material how that Jesus as the SON shares divinity or the Divine Nature and those with a Phd in DIVINITY do not. At the same time the trinitarians demeaned the glory of Jesus and made the Jews and Muslims hate them. So they burned the one who glorified Jesus. That according to Jesus in John is JUST HOW IIT IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE. Understand that Moses was AN elohim but He was not JEHOFAH-ELOHIM the only SPIRITUAL ruler of the universe. The Lord-God always needs to define WHOM is doing the work. The Jews and pseudo-Christians worship the STARRY HOST and not THE Creator of the Host.

Ex. 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
Ex. 20:2 I am the LORD THY God Elohim, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

EXO 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

ISA 45:22 Look unto ME, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

ISA 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel
and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

ISA 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.

ISA 44:8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Dave,

Since you're not "talking," you can still read and study the 14 New Testament passages I quoted in my post just above Ken's post. I've been spending quite a bit of time doing searches using the KJV ONLINE.

Although the coming of the Messiah was prophesied in the Old Testament, I do not find "Jesus" or "Christ" in the O.T.

But not so in the New Testament where we can learn (especially in the writings of John) about the relationship and communication between Jesus Christ the Son and his Father.

The 14 passages [and there may be more] are explicit in declaring that our Lord Jesus Christ has a God -- the Father is his own God. Just like the rest of us.

How can Jesus “be God” and “have a God” at the same time?

One of the 14 passages clearly states: my Father, your Father; my God, your God (John 20:17).

This is Stan's first visit in months. I see that the main debate is still over the Trinity, and now that Dave realizes how futile it is for him to keep sharing Scriptures that refute Donnie and Ken's false teaching there is nobody left to fight, Ken and Donnie win in refuting the world and this site can claim victory. BTW, Dave I was experiencing the same issue as you of messages being posted late or not at all. For the record this is being typed/submitted on 3/27/17 at 7:48 a.m.

Galatians 4:16 (KJV)
Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?

Everybody goes on vacations, so even a pause for a few days can be expected.

There's also sleep hours, and short day trips.

Maintaining a forum requires a great deal of energy and devotion.

You might look at a forum like it is a living organism. Sometimes it can run at full speed. Sometimes it gets exhausted and needs to rest. All in all, it is human-like in that it is run by humans.

Probably the greatest decision which the forum-keeper must decide is the divide between culture and indecency.

[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]That's a very good understanding of the life of a religious forum like CM and of what's really involved in moderating it. Would you have the time and be interested in helping Ken and Donnie maintain (moderate) this site, Scripture?
