Where will you spend eternity?

The Son is also God too. That is what the word of God says.

There is no passage that says that Jesus Christ is not God. None.
There are many clear passages that prove Jesus Christ is God. You need to address each of those.
The scripture that you included never says Christ is not God.

These prove Christ is God.

John 1:1 .. the Word was God
John 1:14 the Word became flesh

God created all things. Christ created all things (John 1:3, John 1:10). So Jesus Christ is God.
The Lord is God. Jesus is the Lord (1 Cor 12:3 and many other places). So Jesus Christ is God.
Jesus Christ is called God many places (John 20:28 is just one).

Jesus Christ is worshipped and receives worship. But only God is worshipped so Jesus Christ is God.

Your err in that you have a false precept and fit are interpreting those passages your false theory.

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. - John 8:58
By the way all your reasoning means nothing. Just quotes.

The gospel of John declares that Jesus Christ is God in its first verse. Referring to Christ, John wrote:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. - John 1:1

The Bible is quite clear that God created all things. This is clearly shown in Genesis 1 and other parts of the Old Testament (Exo 20:11, Exo 31:17, et al).

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. - Gen 1:1

But the New Testament declares that Jesus Christ created all things. So, the following verses prove that Jesus Christ is God Almighty.

All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. - John 1:3

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. - John 1:10

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: - Col 1:16

In the following verse Jesus declares Himself as “I am”.

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. - John 8:58

God used the same phrase about himself in the Old Testament. That phrase means always existed, always will exist. That means Christ is God.

And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. - Exo 3:14

In the following verse, Thomas calls Jesus Christ, “God”. Christ did not correct him.

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. - John 20:28

In the Old Testament, God refers to Himself as “the first” and “the last” in Isa 41:4, Isa 44:6 and Isa 48:12. Jesus Christ is called “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending” in Rev 1:8. Christ is called “Alpha and Omega, the first and the last” in Rev 1:11. Jesus Christ is called “the first and the last” in Rev 1:17. Christ is also called “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end” in Rev 21:6. Finally, Christ is called “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” in Rev 22:13. All these prove that Christ is God.

In Rev 1:18, Christ is called “the Almighty”. Thus, Jesus Christ is God.

In Rev 22:6, Jesus Christ is called “the Lord God of the holy prophets”. Again, this is another proof that Christ is God. Note, one of the purposes of the book of Revelation is to declare who Christ is, and that is, Christ is the Almighty, God.

In Micah 5:2, Jesus Christ is said to be “from everlasting”, meaning He has always existed. This is another proof that Christ is God.

In Heb 7:3, the phrase “having neither beginning of days” is attributed to Christ. Thus, Christ has no beginning and is thus God.

Heb 1:8 says, “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne O God”. Thus, Christ is called God.

In Heb 1:6, it says of Christ, “let all the angles of God worship him”. The angels only worship God, so Christ is God.

In Heb 1:2, it says of Jesus Christ, “by whom also he made the worlds”. So, Christ is the Creator, that is, God Almighty.

In Isa 9:6, it refers to Christ as “The Mighty God”. Again, this proves Jesus Christ is God.

In Daniel 9:24, Christ is referred to as “the most holy”. That proves He is God.

In Rom 15:12, Jesus is referred to as “the root of Jesse”. In Rev 5:5, Christ is called “the Root of David”. And in Rev 22:16, Christ is called “the root and offspring of David”. But in the genealogy of Christ found in Luke 3, the root of Jesse and the root of David is God. So Christ is God.

In 1 Tim 3:16, describes Christ as “God manifest in the flesh”. So, Jesus Christ is God.

Phil 2:6 says of Christ, “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God”. Again this proves Christ is God.

In 1 Cor 15:47, Jesus is referred to as “the Lord from heaven” and 1 Cor 12:3 says “Jesus is the Lord”. The Lord is God (see Exo 6:2, et al), so both declare that Jesus Christ is God.

In Titus, the phrases, “God our Saviour” and “Christ our Saviour”, appear together 3x, once in each chapter of Titus. So, Christ is God.

In John 3:13, Christ, while on earth says, “the Son of man which is in heaven”. Only God can be in 2 places at once. So, Christ is God.

In 1 Tim 6:15, Jesus Christ is called “the blessed and only Potentate”. That means Christ is God.

In Rev 19:13 and 1 Tim 6:15, Christ is called “the King of kings, and Lord of lords”. All these show that Christ is God.

In 1 Tim 1:17, Jesus is called “the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God”. So, the Lord Jesus Christ is God.

In Titus 2:13, Jesus Christ is called “the great God”. This is another proof that Jesus is God.

In 2 Pet 1:1, Christ is called, “God and our Saviour Jesus Christ”. In Jude 1:25, Jesus Christ is referred to as “to the only wise God, our Saviour”. Both prove Christ is God.

The following passage shows that Christ is God.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. - 1 Thess 4:14

The following passage also proves that the Lord Jesus Christ is God.

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. - Rom 14:10-12

Speaking of Jesus, Acts 20:28 says, “to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Again this shows Christ is God.

In Acts 7:59, Stephen is “calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Thus Jesus Christ is God.

In Rom 9:5, it says, “Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever.” This again shows that Christ is God.

In John 5:23, Jesus Christ says, “That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.” We honor the Father as God, so we must honor the Son, Jesus Christ, as God.

In Zech 12:10, God says, “they shall look upon me whom they have pierced”. This is a direct proof that Christ is God crucified on the cross.

The following verse declares the triune God Almighty, which means one God in three persons. So Christ, who is the Word, is God, as is the Father and the Holy Ghost.

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. - 1 John 5:7

The triune God Almighty is shown in the following verse. Note that “name” is singular. Thus one God in three persons. Jesus Christ, who is the Son, is God, as is the Father and the Holy Ghost.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: - Matt 28:19

The triune God Almighty was revealed in Genesis 1. Note in the following passage God refers to God as plural 3 times in verse 26. God does not give His glory as Creator to another (see Isa 42:8). So the 3 plural pronouns must refer to God alone. So although there is only one God, singular, God must also be plural. The 3 plural pronouns reveal that there is one God in three persons. The 3 creates in verse 27 also reveal the triune God Almighty.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness … 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. - Gen 1:26-27

The Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit are revealed at the baptism of Jesus Christ in all 4 gospel accounts (Matt 3:16-17, Mark 1:10, Luke 3:22, John 1:32). The Father says “thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” and the Holy Spirit descends as a dove upon Jesus.

In the following verse, God is speaking, but the “me” referred to is Jesus Christ. This reveals the triune God Almighty.

Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord God, and his Spirit, hath sent me. - Isa 48:16

Jesus Christ says, “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30). So both the Father and the Son are God.

In Matt 4:10, Jesus says, “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Therefore, when Christ is worshipped, it proves the He is God. There are 13 times in the 4 gospel accounts where Christ is worshipped.

And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. - John 9:38

And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: - Luke 24:52

Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. - Matt 20:20

See also: Matt 2:2, Matt 2:11, Matt 8:2, Matt 9:18, Matt 14:33, Matt 15:25, Matt 28:9, Matt 28:17, Mark 5:6, Luke 24:52.
You should try listening to Jesus for who he said he was in the Father instead of making him in your own image for a god.
 
These read the truth of what Jesus said of himself as Gods child, His son, and he couldn't do anything at all without his God who sent him, and they still have this thorn in their flesh for their desire to be right and look Nobel toward men instead of being like the Father of it, even when they read the truth and say the truth is wrong in what Jesus declared of himself as Gods child, His son.

The real problem here is they are not Gods child and cannot relate to being Gods child as His son or daughter. But that is their own undoing.

What I hate to see is these going to a grave and never knowing, never experiencing the Father for themselves. The grave is not going to reveal God, it is to late by then to know Him as He really is, not even Jesus could escape this fact, proof is in Matt 3:16. They just do not believe what it says is all, they have other ends for their gods.

These are like Paul instead who tried to get into Gods heaven through adoption instead of being born of God as Jesus was in Matt 3:16 for what it is to be a child of God as Jesus was themselves. They would have to know the Father first to become His child.
Now in your reply you just have a reference to Matt 3:16. You then add all these words for your false interpretation. That is why you err.

But you cannot and have not refuted the absolute clear scripture that I gave. There are many. Here are some more.

Consider that John the Baptist was “to prepare the way of the Lord” (Matt 3:3, Matt 11:10, Mark 1:2-3, Luke 1:76, Luke 3:4, Luke 7:27). Of course, this refers to the Lord Jesus Christ, who then must be God. This was predicted in the Old Testament in Isa 40:3. It is also predicted in Mal 3:1, where in addition to that, the Lord will come to his temple.

Jesus Christ is called “the Lord” many times.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. - Luke 2:11

See also: Matt 3:3, Matt 21:3, Matt 28:6, Mark 1:3, Mark 11:3, Mark 16:20, Luke 1:17, Luke 3:4, Luke 7:13, Luke 7:31, Luke 10:1, Luke 11:39, Luke 12:42, Luke 13:15, Luke 17:5, Luke 17:6, Luke 18:6, Luke 19:8, Luke 19:31, Luke 19:34, Luke 22:31, Luke 22:61, Luke 24:34, John 1:23, John 4:1, John 6:23, John 11:2, John 20:2, John 20:18, John 20:20, John 20:25, John 21:7, John 21:12, Acts 2:21, Acts 2:25, Acts 2:47, Acts 4:33, Acts 5:14, Acts 8:24, Acts 9:1, Acts 9:5, Acts 9:6, Acts 9:10, Acts 9:11, Acts 9:15, Acts 9:17, Acts 9:27, Acts 9:29, Acts 9:31, Acts 9:35, Acts 9:42, Acts 10:48, Acts 11:16, Acts 11:17, Acts 11:21, Acts 11:23, Acts 11:24, Acts 12:11, Acts 12:17, Acts 13:2, Acts 13:10, Acts 13:11, Acts 13:47, Acts 13:48, Acts 13:49, Acts 14:3, Acts 14:23, Acts 15:17, Acts 15:35, Acts 15:46, Acts 16:10, Acts 16:14, Acts 16:15, Acts 16:31, Acts 16:32, Acts 17:24, Acts 17:27, Acts 18:8, Acts 18:9, Acts 18:25, Acts 19:10, Acts 19:17, Acts 20:19, Acts 21:14, Acts 21:20, Acts 22:10, Acts 22:16, Acts 22:19, Acts 23:11, Rom 4:8, Rom 9:28, Rom 10:13, Rom 11:34, Rom 12:11, Rom 12:19, Rom 14:6, Rom 14:8, Rom 14:9, Rom 14:11, Rom 15:11, Rom 16:2, Rom 16:8, Rom 16:11, Rom 16:12, Rom 16:13, Rom 16:22, 1 Cor 1:31, 1 Cor 2:8, 1 Cor 2:16, 1 Cor 3:5, 1 Cor 3:20, 1 Cor 4:4, 1 Cor 4:5, 1 Cor 4:17, 1 Cor 4:19, 1 Cor 6:13, 1 Cor 6:14, 1 Cor 6:17, 1 Cor 7:10, 1 Cor 7:12, 1 Cor 7:17, 1 Cor 7:22, 1 Cor 7:25, 1 Cor 7:32, 1 Cor 7:34, 1 Cor 7:35, 1 Cor 7:39, 1 Cor 9:1, 1 Cor 9:1, 1 Cor 9:2, 1 Cor 9:5, 1 Cor 9:14, 1 Cor 10:21, 1 Cor 10:22, 1 Cor 10:26, 1 Cor 10:28, 1 Cor 11:20, 1 Cor 11:23, 1 Cor 11:26, 1 Cor 11:27, 1 Cor 11:29, 1 Cor 11:32, 1 Cor 14:21, 1 Cor 14:37, 1 Cor 15:58, 1 Cor 16:7, 1 Cor 16:10, 1 Cor 16:19, 2 Cor 2:12, 2 Cor 3:16, 2 Cor 3:17, 2 Cor 3:18, 2 Cor 5:6, 2 Cor 5:8, 2 Cor 5:11, 2 Cor 6:17, 2 Cor 8:5, 2 Cor 8:21, 2 Cor 10:8, 2 Cor 10:17, 2 Cor 10:18, 2 Cor 11:17, 2 Cor 12:1, 2 Cor 12:8, 2 Cor 13:10, Gal 1:19, Gal 5:10, Eph 2:21, Eph 4:1, Eph 4:17, Eph 5:8, Eph 5:10, Eph 5:17, Eph 5:19, Eph 5:22, Eph 5:29, Eph 6:1, Eph 6:4, Eph 6:7, Eph 6:8, Eph 6:10, Eph 6:21, Phil 1:14, Phil 2:24, Phil 2:29, Phil 3:1, Phil 4:1, Phil 4:2, Phil 4:4, Phil 4:5, Phil 4:10, Col 1:10, Col 3:16, Col 3:18, Col 3:20, Col 3:23, Col 3:24, Col 4:7, Col 4:17, 1 Thess 1:6, 1 Thess 1:10, 1 Thess 3:8, 1 Thes 3:12, 1 Thess 4:6, 1 Thess 4;15, 1 Thess 4:16, 1 Thess 4:17, 1 Thess 5:1, 1 Thess 5:2, 1 Thess 5:12: 1 Thess 5:27, 2 Thess 1:9, 2 Thess 2:8, 2 Thess 2:13, 2 Thess 3:1, 2 Thess 3:3, 2 Thess 3:4, 2 Thess 3:5, 2 Thess 3:16, 1 Tim 6:15, 2 Tim 1:8, 2 Tim 1:16, 2 Tim 1:18, 2 Tim 2:7, 2 Tim 2:14, 2 Tim 2:19, 2 Tim 2:22, 2 Tim 2:24, 2 Tim 3:11, 2 Tim 4:6-8, 2 Tim 4:14, 2 Tim 4:17, 2 Tim 4:18, Phile 1:16, Phile 1:20, Heb 1:10, Heb 2:3, Heb 7:21, Heb 8:2, Heb 8:10, Heb 8:11, Heb 10:16, Heb 10:30, Heb 12:6, Heb 12:14, Heb 13:6, Heb 13:20, James 1:7, James 1:12, James 2:1, James 4:10, James 4:15, James 5:7, James 5:8, James 5:10, James 5:11, James 5:14, James 5:15, 1 Pet 1:25, 1 Pet 2:3, 1 Pet 2:13, 1 Pet 3:12, 2 Pet 2:1, 2 Pet 2:9, 2 Pet 2:11, 2 Pet 2:20, 2 Pet 3:2 , 2 Pet 3:8, 2 Pet 3:9, 2 Pet 3:10, 2 Pet 3:15, Jude 1:5, Jude 1:9, Jude 1:14, Rev 1:8, Rev 1:10, Rev 14:13, Rev 17:14

That is over 200 times where Christ is called the Lord, all which prove Christ is God.

The following titles also show that Christ is God: the Lord Jesus, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord Christ, Christ Jesus the Lord, and our Lord Jesus Christ. These occur over 110 times. Again all these prove Christ is God.

In fact, every time that Jesus Christ is called “Lord”, it indicates that Christ is God since there is only one Lord, who indeed is God. And this occurs about 500 times in the New Testament.

It is established fact that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. For example:

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; - Mark 1:1

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. - John 20:31

And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. - Acts 8:37

Christ is called the Son or the Son of God 120 times in the New Testament. From the following passage and others, the title the Son of God declares that Jesus Christ is God.

… said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. - John 5:14.

There are several passages from the Old Testament which reveal the Son of God, Jesus Christ. For example, in Isa 53, begins with the following verses:

1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant …- Isa 53:1-2

Now from 1 Sam 2:31, an arm is used to describe a son. So the arm of the Lord is the Son of the Lord, that is, the Son of God. And this is an actual man as revealed by the phrase “he shall grow up” in verse 2. Later in that chapter, Christ is described as dying for our sins and rising from the dead.

This is predicted in Isa 9:14, where it says, “a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son”. This is the virgin conception and birth of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Since God is His Father, a man could not be His father. This was revealed in Gen 3:15, where God said “her seed”, not their seed. It is also revealed later in Gen 3:20, where Eve is “the mother of all living” but Adam is not the father of all living.

John the Baptist said of Jesus Christ, “Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world”. This is a fulfillment of what Abraham said to Isaac, “God will provide himself a lamb” (Gen 22:8). In fact, this is the very location where Christ would be crucified, since you can see Calvary from where the temple was built (Gen 22:1, 2 Chron 3:1). Thus God Himself would be the Lamb of God who would be crucified for the sins of the world. This was promised in Gen 3:15 and is further expounded on in Isa 53, where the Son of God would be crucified for all sins and rise from the dead. Again this proves Christ is God.
 
There is no passage that says that Jesus Christ is not God. None.
There are many clear passages that prove Jesus Christ is God. You need to address each of those.
The scripture that you included never says Christ is not God.

This proved Christ is God.

John 1:1 .. the Word was God
John 1:14 the Word became flesh

God created all things. Christ created all things (John 1:3, John 1:10). So Jesus Christ is God.
The Lord is God. Jesus is the Lord (1 Cor 12:3 and many other places). So Jesus Christ is God.
Jesus Christ is called God many places (John 20:28 is just one).

Jesus Christ is worshipped and receives worship. But only God is worshipped so Jesus Christ is God.

Your err in that you have a false precept and fit are interpreting those passages your false theory.

John 1:1-14 refers to the logos of God where God created Jesus, hence the word became flesh. Jesus is not the Word (Logos). The passage clearly informs you the "Word is God." Logos refers to something said; by implication, a topic, also reasoning or motive; by extension, a computation; specially, the Divine Expression.

You will see in Revelation 20:14 that the word (logos) of God and Jesus are not the same. Therefore, Jesus is not God.

4Then I saw the thrones, and those seated on them had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony of Jesus and for the word [Logos] of God...

You're preaching a false gospel and a false Jesus. This is why not many should be teachers. You have a serious responsibility to really know what you're talking about.

Galatians 1
8But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be under a curse! 9As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be under a curse!
 
Not much from the word of God.
Jesus Christ is God Almighty, the Creator of all things.
Of course it is not of works. No one keeps the law of God.
Of Course not. You'll learn soon enough that gmac knows more/better than Paul, God's personally chosen Apostle. You are throwing pearls to swine. Also, be wary of running man, they will accuse you of a false Gospel when it really is them spreading their lies (their father is the father of lies). Don't waste your pearls.

Um a human being or any created creature worshipped as God or a god is always idolatry. Your problem isn't with Gary or I; your problem is with God.
 
Now in your reply you just have a reference to Matt 3:16. You then add all these words for your false interpretation. That is why you err.

Only if he is your lord and you have followed him to his Lord who was his God. But right now you are lord over him dictating to him who he is and what he is and what he can be and cannot be and what he can and cannot do.

And you really should consider the ways of Jesus in his God who was Lord over him and sent him to show you what it is to be of God yourself. But sense you are lord over him, that aint gonna happen is it?

A logo is like a patten number, it is a symbol used for identity of ownership. An identifying symbol (as for use in advertising) ; 3 · an identifying statement : motto.

All who has from God His word in us are His logo. It is our identity and we advertise it just as Jesus was His logo and advertised it. His word came out from Jesus just as it does from us all who are identified with Him as Jesus was.
 
And you failed to address the actual words in the very many passages I gave
Nice dodge -- You cant quote where I was wrong can you? For if you did you know very well I will quote to you what Jesus had to say about his Father who was his God, who was his Lord that he obeyed and said sent him that you may see for yourself how to be like he was in the Father.

There is nothing from the word of God in your post. Just the words of Gary.
Obviously Christ is God.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
 
What you really are you saying is you don't know what the word actually says.
I never said that.
I have studied the word of God for over 20 years.
as I said where in the Bible does it say that Jesus Christ is not God?

But the word of God says it clearly in John 1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
 
These read the truth of what Jesus said of himself as Gods child, His son, and he couldn't do anything at all without his God who sent him, and they still have this thorn in their flesh for their desire to be right and look Nobel toward men instead of being like the Father of it, even when they read the truth and say the truth is wrong in what Jesus declared of himself as Gods child, His son.

The real problem here is they are not Gods child and cannot relate to being Gods child as His son or daughter. But that is their own undoing.

What I hate to see is these going to a grave and never knowing, never experiencing the Father for themselves. The grave is not going to reveal God, it is to late by then to know Him as He really is, not even Jesus could escape this fact, proof is in Matt 3:16. They just do not believe what it says is all, they have other ends for their gods.

These are like Paul instead who tried to get into Gods heaven through adoption instead of being born of God as Jesus was in Matt 3:16 for what it is to be a child of God as Jesus was themselves. They would have to know the Father first to become His child.

I’m still pretty sure the reason they need to deify Jesus is multifaceted, but primarily it’s because of a lack of faith. They cannot comprehend the fact that God chose a man, made him His servant, and worked through him.(Acts 4:23-31)

If who and what Jesus is is some out-of-reach goal then they have the excuse to really take nothing he said seriously. All of the business about following in his footsteps, taking up the cross, and doing greater works than he did can safely be disregarded.

Perhaps they didn’t realize this, but a Christian can’t do greater works than God, but any Christian can do greater works than Jesus.

John 14
12Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

John 1:9 says the true Light gives light to men entering the world. Jesus is a man who entered the world. (John 1:14)

Person A = True Light
Person B = Jesus the man

John 1:30 John the Baptist said Jesus is a man. Context, critical thinking, and a clear mind my friend. Jesus is not the true Light and thus isn’t God.

John 1
9The true Light who gives light to every man was coming into the world.
30This is He of whom I said, A man who comes after me has surpassed me because He was before me.’

Jesus Christ is both God and man. That is clear in many passages.

John 1:1-14
 
Jesus is not God and he denied it.

“Why do you call Me good?” Jesus replied. “No one is good except God alone” – Luke 18:19
“Why do you ask Me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good.” – Matthew 19:17

In neither of these statements did Jesus deny that he was God. He was questioning the man who had spoken to him about what he believed.

In John 8:58 Jesus said, Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” In Exodus 3:13,14 God declared that this was his name.

Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
 
In neither of these statements did Jesus deny that he was God. He was questioning the man who had spoken to him about what he believed.
Contrary to being called the person who is good, Jesus said only God is good. Jesus identified God as the Father (John 17:3) therefore Jesus denied being God.

In John 8:58 Jesus said, Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” In Exodus 3:13,14 God declared that this was his name.
Please don't stop at Exodus 3:13,14 because verse 15 is where there connection you're attempting to make doesn't make any sense. Jesus is never referred to as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob or YHWH nor is that Jesus' name or how he is remembered.

Exodus 3
15God also told Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered in every generation.

John 1:1-14

As I just showed you in my previous post, Jesus is a man but the true Light gives light to men. Therefore the true Light would be God not Jesus.

This entire passage is about God and His logos creating, giving life and light to people. God created Jesus.

Speaking of John's writings, he also prayed with Peter in Acts 4 where they both didn't believe Jesus is God, but rather God is the creator and Jesus is a servant. Therefore the creator in John 1:1-14 is God not Jesus.

Acts 4
23On their release, Peter and John returned to their own people and reported everything that the chief priests and elders had said to them. 24When the believers heard this, they lifted up their voices to God with one accord. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “You made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them.
25You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of Your servant, our father David:

‘Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
26The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the Lord
and against His Anointed One.’

27In fact, this is the very city where Herod and Pontius Pilate conspired with the Gentiles and the people of Israel against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed.
28They carried out what Your hand and will had decided beforehand would happen.
29And now, Lord, consider their threats, and enable Your servants to speak Your word with complete boldness,
30as You stretch out Your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.”
31After they had prayed, their meeting place was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

You are deceived. Because of that you are blind to see the truth written so clearly.

John 1:1-14

The Bible is quite clear that God created all things. This is clearly shown in Genesis 1 and other parts of the Old Testament (Exo 20:11, Exo 31:17, et al).

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. - Gen 1:1

But the New Testament declares that Jesus Christ created all things. So, the following verses prove that Jesus Christ is God Almighty.

All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. - John 1:3

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. - John 1:10

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: - Col 1:16

John 1:1-14
No you're deceived, blind, etc. The Word is the logos of God, it means something said; by implication, a topic, also reasoning or motive; by extension, a computation; specially, the Divine Expression. It's basically a narrative about God creating using words. Think back to Genesis 1 where God spoke and created. It say's Jesus was begotten in verse 14, it means he didn't exist before being begotten.

Also, look at Revelation 20 where Jesus and the word (logos) are not the same things.

4Then I saw the thrones, and those seated on them had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony of Jesus and for the word [Logos] of God,

Jesus isn't clearly not the creator or God in Acts 4:23-31. God is the creator and Sovereign Lord and Jesus is the holy servant. You're preaching a false gospel.

All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. - John 1:3
Refers to God, not Jesus. Look at the context where it says the "Word is God" it doesn't say the "Word is Jesus."

Furthermore, John 1:9,30 show Jesus is a man who God gave light to.
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. - John 1:10
That's God again, not Jesus. Jesus didn't exist until he was begotten in John 1:14
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: - Col 1:16
Colossians 1:15 says Jesus was created:

15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
