Son of God. There is a term that applies called Divine Investiture. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three separate and distinct individuals yet they are one in purpose - to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. This is how the Son can be referred to as the Father. Also, Jesus Christ is our "father" as to the author of our redemption and salvation. We are "purchased" by Him and to Him are we indebted. Through the Eternal Father, Jesus Christ receives his authority and power. The three work in concert.
There is no secret to it. Jesus did not pray to himself, nor did he exhort others to pray to a nameless sky. It wasn't a cloud or bird that Jesus asked "Why hast thou forsaken me?" When Jesus proclaimed that the Father was in him he knew of his role in the Godhead and was invoking the simple precept of Divine Investiture.
God, the Eternal Father is our God whom we acknowledge along with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Beyond that are the line of Gods that have also proven themselves worthy in their own respective mortalities. Through the Infinite Atonement, Jesus Christ, we are reconciled to God and have the agency and opportunity to return back into His presence to receive eternal life. The Holy Spirit, however, does not yet have a body of flesh and bone. His function is to bear witness to the hearts and minds of man the divinity of the Father and the Son.
Which Christian faith? Growing up, he was son of God. I was told by a preacher recently, he was God, in third. The trinity is supposedly, now just God. He's all three. But, at his right hand in heaven. Oh yeah, and that the 10 commandments were changed with him becoming human as christ. Again, which denomination? The sane?
dj...i understand what u mean but as i said earlier i am not christian ..for me jesus is historical figure...i am trying to understand jesus from point of view of christians...so i wrote was..it was not meant to hurt anyone's feeling ..i wrote from my perception and so i said sorry to you...i understand for you jesus is and not was...
You don't need to apologise. I take no offence. I am trying to help you see Him as He is. Yes He WAS a historical figure, but so what? It doesn't help you today. So, if you truly want to understand Him from a Christian poit of view, I gave you that point of view. That's what I was referring to when I wrote "you missed the greater point."
Jesus is the "DAYSMAN." He is the only one. Job had wished or asked for a daysman a lon g time before Jesus was born. Job 9:33 Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.
A daysman is one who is human enough to touch man and godly enough to touch God. Remember that no man can see the face of God and live, but Jesus is able to do it. This mnakes Jesus man and God both at the same time.
interesting question. I believe Jesus is the son of god..... if you were to believe the trinity then you would believe 3 in one, i personally do not.... thanks for taking the time to pose this question..... it is my belief, but i know it is not everyones.
God cannot be a physical being. It would deny Him the attribute of Infinity for all objects must have a beginning and end. This implies that we too are in essence non-physical. Only in appearance can we claim to be so.
Jesus was never a god as Mary was never a wife of god. Jesus was never a son of god as Mary was not a wife of god.
Jesus himself said he was Son of Man; that is correct he was one of the prefect men of the Creator- God Allah YHWH; called Messengers Prophets. He himself put himself to the resemblance of Jonah; and Jonah was only a Messenger Prophet of God Allah YHWH.
What is incorrect about the statement in the picture with jesus?
God originally created man sinless. However, he also gave us a free will to choose righteous or sin. It was by an act of choice that sin was committed. It was through that act of committing sin that all men who followed were under the penalty of sin - which is death. God created the law - the penalty of sin is death - it is by choosing to commit sin that mankind is subject to the law. Our condemnation is by our actions not predetermined by Jesus as punishment as in your picture.
I'm so glad I have faith in something greater then myself, it helps to remind me, life is not just about money, power, and fame. We all have an end date and will no longer live on this earth. It's what happens after that which only your faith will answer for you.
Has these titles, which are often used to describe Christ's relationship with God, been taken out of context? Or do you honestly believe that Jesus Christ is God's son? I wonder, can a person still be a...
I know that the holy trinity are all meant to be the same and one being. God is the father and the son and the holy spirit. But, taking into account, this was decided by a group of men hundreds of years after Jesus,...
RELIGION VS THE BIBLE.This is a striking subject as it has being somehow controversal in all ages regarding it's relationship with the Bible. Anyway, I know Religion could be man made in nature as it is widely claimed...
If the Christian god is omnipotent then why would it need to order the murder of it's son so that it can forgive? No Christian can answer this because it is utter nonsense. But I challenge any christian to give it a try.
