We love you all and just know our thoughts are with you.

    Luke 17:4 - a lot. This shows the level of forgiveness you are you give to others, otherwise we won't be forgiven. Matthew 6:14, Mark 11:26
  • Clifford Gibbs on John 1:2
    I'm really enjoying slowly reading the book of john.the first verse explained a lot of things I couldn't put together the first verse started in the beginning was the word the word was with God,the word was God, genesis starts with in the beginning God created the world than jesus talking to his disciples said I am the word, the truth and the light.which I believe jesus was with God in the beginning (genesis)which helps me understand the trinity father, son holy spirit all in one jesus is -God.
  • Ransford on John 1:2
    it is as it is. He was, is and will forever be with God.
  • Gregory Dameron on John 1:2
    It definitely seems as though the Holy Spirit intends to convey some deeper truth by repeating that Jesus was with God in the beginning but,as of now I have no clue what that deeper truth could be.
  • Rev. Autrey on John 1:2
    John 1, verses 1 and 2 read, 'Before anything else existed, there was Christ, with God. He has always been alive and is himself God. ' The key words here are 'He is himself God. ' This is the greatest proof one can have that Jesus is God. And it agrees completely with what Thomas said about Jesus in John 20, verse 28. Thomas called Jesus 'My Lord and my God. ' Then in Matthew 28, verse 9, we see the disciples worshiping Jesus as God. All of this agrees with what we read in Isaiah 35, verse 4, 'Say to those who are afraid, 'Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you. ' And as everyone knows, Jesus is our Savior. Please Christians! Let 's look at our Savior in the light of what is plainly revealed in the Scriptures. Isn 't the Church called the Bride of Christ? This means that Jesus is our Husband. Then, what bride would refuse to talk to our husband in prayer. This is exactly what we are doing if we refuse to pray to Jesus as God. To put it plainly, what bride would talk to her Father in law, Father God, instead of her husband, Jesus. See what a problem this is. The answer is, God has more than one personality. The Father, then, is the way God makes his decisions. The Holy Spirit is the way God inspires us to believe in what he is doing. But in all cases, Jesus is the way God speaks to us and saves us. God bless you!
