    Movies like "It's a Wonderful Life", with Clarence trying to win his wings. I love that movie.

    Google, 'angels with wings'. Some do, but not all.

    Another thought on your question "did god create sin" For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,"For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. This is romans 8. What we see,and hear, the whole creation is subject too. Referring to it as vanity, here today gone tomorrow!

    God is perfect and cannot look on sin. Sin, is anything that is outside of himself, anything that is not holy. Sin was introduced through the disobedience of man. Darkness was upon the face of the deep! He said let there be light. The light divided the darkness. The darkness was never sin nor could be. He took the darkness and made it light! Christ was is in the Father even today , Christ is the light of the world , in Him is no darkness at all. Your sin is obliterated when you you except him as your savior and Lord! Your sin is forgiven and you are now found once again where you should be . In Him the creator of you and me! Thanks be to Christ!!

    Isaiah 45:5-8 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded theeThat they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.

    Greg, the mystery of God can seem to be so complex if it was never taught you. First read Isaiah 9:6 for the prophecy then read 1Timothy 3:16. Paul or Saul at the time, was crucifying Christians because he thought their teaching and worshiping of Jesus as God was heresy. Saul KNEW the scriptures and that there was only one God so he was zealous in trying to (what he thought) wipe out this Jesus movement. When God struck Saul down on the Damascus road and blinded him and Saul cried out to the Lord/God asking Him who He was, God told him He was Jesus. Jesus is the name above every name,Acts4:12. When Jesus was crucified He took on all the sins of the world and God's spirit had to leave his body hence Jesus crying, Father, why hast thou forsaken me? I hope I helped you a little bit. This is why we need to be filled with the HOLY GHOST so we can read and understand with the spirit. What must we do to be saved? Acts 2:38, repent, be baptized in the name of Jesus for the remission of sin and thou shalt be filled with the HOLY Ghost.

    Comments on John 1. His life was the LIGHT OF MEN ,but here are 2 lights the lesser light and the greater light. The bible is the lesser light THE WRITTEN WORD but the greater light is the H.G. THE LIVING WORD . One is a night light and 1 is a day light, Jesus said are there not 12 hours in a day and 12 hours in a night, If a man walk in the night he will stumble. David said thy word is a light unto my path, and a lamp unto my feet. describing a night light but David stumbled, ( Bathesheba ) .But he was forgiven . But my point is the written word answers to the lesser light but the living word which is the H.G. ANSWERS TO THE LIVING WORD, my words are spirit and life which is the H.G. tHE GREATER LIGHT. Search the scriptures in them you think you have eternal life but it is them that testify of ME, No eternal life in the written words the scriptures th bible etc,If eternal life were in the written words the Scriptures, jesus shed his blood in vain and the cross was just foolishness. thats the point i am trying to make, that you see the 2 lights the 2 words one is spirit and 1 is paper and ink. Mary was not impregnated by the written word but by the living Word, as Jesus is the living word made flesh and blood the Greater Light. the lesser light is like the moon, it has no light of its own the only light it has is what is reflected from the son/sun. Thus if the H.G the greater light does not revel it unto you there is no spritual light in it as satan can be an angel of light ' but thats a false light ( written words ) without the spirit of Christ as he said my WORDS ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE THE LIGHT OF MEN ( THAT GREATER LIGHT ) THE SON/SUN. REMEMBER JESUS SAID THE NIGHT COMES WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK. Jesus also said The days will come when you will desire to see 1 of the days of the son of man the greater light but you will not see them impling a time of darkness spritually, Isaiah said that darkness will cover the earth and gross darkness th people. The present time gb
  • Jim on John 1:3
    Thank you God for knowing exactly what we need, in life to get to heaven.you gave us your very best, our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. And thank you father for allowing your only begotten son to suffer and die for a wicked fool like me. Thank you lord for another day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it. Halleujah glory to god.in reference to John chapter 1.
  • Joshua on John 1:3
    '..the Word(Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us'. This whole chapter, and the entire Bible became so much more amazing to me once God showed me that the 'Word' spoken of in John chapter 1 is Jesus Christ. Verse 1: 'In the beginning was the Word(Jesus), and the Word(Jesus) was WITH GOD, AND THE WORD(Jesus) WAS GOD.'
  • Adam on John 1:3
    He made all things, even the little details we don't know about yet. Such micro detail and macro detail at every scale. Ever look at a snowflake closeup? Or a butterfly's wing? Amazing how this spectacular design is being written off by non-believers as being caused by a random explosion from nothing. God could have used an explosion in creation, but the design is obviously intentional.
