Yeah sure Rod.ney and that is why you refuse to accept Jesus' own words on this below while you want to claim that he is your Lord.No, I want it as the AS IS scriptures tells us BEFORE you ADD ( HWA ) your TWIST ( 2 Peter 3:16 ) to them! Thus those posted ( AS IS ) scriptures still rebukes your twisted view as per 2 Tim.3:16 and the case is closed on your counterfeit Jesus Christ who is just a man and NOT God also! John 1:1-18 & 8:58 and Hebrews 1:6+8 are the AS IS scriptures that PROVES He is both fully God ( the Word of John 1:1 ) and fully human ( the FLESH of John 1:14 ) as a man! So it is CLEARLY you that wants it your way! If the scriptures actually told us that He is just a man, then I would go by that and be satisfied! But John 1:1+14 tells us that the Word " Was God " and then BECAME " Flesh " ( God the Word in the flesh ) as Jesus Christ the God/Man! Yes God/Man as God can NEVER cease to still be God when He becomes flesh as a man! Case closed HWA!
By the way, do you know how many people on this forum will argue the same thing, that they all get their beliefs from the scriptures?
John 17:3 "This is eternal life, that they might know you (he was praying to the Father alone) The Only True God and Jesus the Christ whom you have sent".
John 5:26 "For just as The Father has life in himself, so he has given unto the Son to have life in himself also".
John 6:57 "For just as The Living Father has sent me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats of me shall live because of me".
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life".
John 3:17 "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved"
Very clearly all of these verses reveal that God sent his Son so that the world through him might believe and be saved and have eternal life.
They also reveal that the reason why we receive eternal life from the Son, is because God gave the Son to have that life within himself and not only for himself but also for us who believe on him through his death and resurrection.
Notice also in John 6:57 above, Jesus said that he lives because of the Father in the same exact way (just as) that we will live also because of him if we receive his sacrifice for our sins, just as Rod.ney, just as!!!!
In other words, just as we receive our eternal life through Jesus and live because of Jesus as believers, likewise Jesus received his eternal life from God the Father and lives because of God the Father and has that life in himself to be able to give unto us likewise.
For that is exactly what he was saying in John 6:57 and which proves your doctrine as false also and actually these verses agree perfectly with 1 John 5:20 also.
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
Therefore the true God is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and our eternal life therefore comes from the Father through his Son Jesus Christ and just like the last words of the above verse reveal as well as all of the other verses that I also posted above.
