How many times do I have to explain that the him who is the creator at John 1:4 is the Father because it goes on to say there was life in him and the life is Jesus and thus the him can not be Jesus too? That leaves only the Father who could be the him. And Col. 1:16 means exactly what it means he created everything in heaven and on earth and not the heaven and the earth.FYI, John 1:3 does NOT say that! Thus Col.1:16 does NOT mean that He did not create Heaven & earth! Case closed!
