Discussion for John 1

  • John
    Peter God is not some cosmic consciousness and he is not impersonal he dwells among us, he walked with Adam in the garden, in the old testament he spoke to men and appeared to them in many forms. He is three persons in one Father, Son, Holy Spirit he has so many attributes I don't have room to list them all, he sent his son to die for the sins of the whole world, he took the punishment we deserve
  • A disciple
    Dear Peter; There are many voices in the world, and many ministers of Satan, lusting to be known as some great one; falsely foretelling and pronouncing things, about which they have NO KNOWLEDGE! God Almighty, The Eternal Author of Life and Creator of all things is an Eternal Living Person. The heathen in his Satan-inspired rage against God imagines all kinds of worthless falsehood. FEAR THEM NOT!

    Jesus is the Word of God when God speaks Jesus is there when God forms his thoughts Jesus is there out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh this is the image in which we were made the dirt God formed is just a vessel to house the image When you speak are the words that come out not part of you, you can not separate you from your words they are apart of you they were always with you

    Jesus is the SON of GOD. He is known as the son of man because of His flesh. He is GOD and a man.
  • A disciple
    Hi Kevin; Jesus is called the Son of God because He was divinely implanted in the womb of the virgin, when the Power of the Highest overshadowed her. Jesus is also called the Son of man because He came in the flesh. And His name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace; King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and ther Judge of all the earth.
