Is Jesus also God
  
Gordon, your right! when God said let US make man in our image He was'nt speaking to the angels, He was speaking to His Son,the FIRSTBORN of all creation.Colossians 1:13-17. V16 says"by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth..." Every translation I've ever seen says the same.


Is Jesus also God
  
The New World Translation is not the only one that translates John1:1 as "a god".Scott listed some below and there are many more that anyone can look up on the internet.The most obvious one being The Emphatic Greek Diaglott which has each verse in Greek AND English.This can be viewed on the internet.


Is Jesus also God
  
Just another thought on JOHN 1:1,This has been one of the most debated verses.Translators,linguists,etc cannot agree on how it should be translated.As we know some translate it "WAS GOD" some "WAS A GOD" So considering such different views on how to translate it it would be wise to take into consideration the context of the ENTIRE Bible,especially Jesus' own words.This is what should decide which translation is appropriate.


Is Jesus also God
  
Gordon,I agree w/what you say about God,Jesus,holy spirit being one as a man & wife are one(Gen 2:24).Just as Jesus and the apostles were one(Galatians3:28,John 17:21,etc)So I'm a little confused about what you believe.There's a big difference between being one WITH someone(in unity) and actually BEING that person. I am one with Jesus but I am NOT Jesus just as I am one with my husband but I am NOT my husband.


Is Jesus also God
  
They say Jesus is God,and out of the same mouth they say he is God's son.He is God but he prays to God,etc etc.1 Timothy 3:8 says we should not be double tongued.I'm seeing alot of fullfillment of Acts 20:30 and 2Peter3:16 in this blog!


Is Jesus also God
  
Back to the original ? "If Jesus was God why he prayed to God?" The answer is simple.Matthew 3:16,17 "After being baptized Jesus came up from the water,and look! the heavens were opened up,and he saw descending like a dove God's spirit coming upon him.Also there was a voice from the heavens that said:"This is my Son the beloved,whom I have approved." There are 1000s of verses in the bible that agree with this.

Gordon, You say in one sentence "Jesus IS God" and in another you say "He sat at the right hand of God." I'm a little confused on what you believe.


Is Jesus also God
  
The truth is pure and simple.Anyone with an honest heart can read Jesus words and clearly understand his relationship to God.If you compare every utterance that came out of Jesus mouth to John 1:1 it's obvious! It's been proven it was altered to support the trinity just as it's been proven that Satan's cohorts removed God's name from the scriptures.We're not living in the dark ages anymore.These blasphemous deeds have been brought to the light.


Is Jesus also God
  
Clif,respectfully, nice try but I'm not buying it.Other greek & bible scholars disagree with you.And since what they say is more in agreement with what Jesus said I have to go with them.Jesus is always right!!


Can I Have Many Wifes
  
1Tim 3:1-13 gives a list of required qualities for a man to lead in the congregation since he is to set the example for all the flock. Verses 2 & 12 mention he must be "A HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE"


Follow Jesus Or Old Testament
  
Matthew 22:36-40 "the greatest commandment is to love God with your whole heart...the second is to love your neighbor as yourself.On these 2 commandments the whole law hangs..." Jesus sermon on the mount,Matthew 5:17-48 shows us how Jesus expects us to view the Law.


Is Jesus also God
  
Trey, go to the Greek Diaglott online or get one at the book store and please look up John 1:1. You'll see the 2 words there for God and god are different Greek words and you'll see that the literal translation is "In the beginning was the word,and the word was with God(0eov),and a god(0eos)was the word." This agrees with Colossians 1:15 where Jesus is called the "firstborn of all creation" And of course it agrees with the whole testimony of Jesus himself as to His position.Thanks


Decorating A Christmas Tree
  
To "caring":We should try to keep our responses Christ like even if we don't agree.Which of course you have every right to. Also please read Jeremiah ch 10.Yes they most definitly did worship decorated trees and God made clear how He felt about it.


Was Christmas Pagan
  
Matthew 2:2 says that the star lead the wise men (or astrologers as some translations calls them) to HEROD first.If this star was from God why would it lead them to Herod,who wanted to kill Jesus, then to Jesus? Just a thought!


Was Christmas Pagan
  
Christmas tree.Jeremiah 10:1-9:"Do not learn the way of the nations at all...the customs of the people...it is a mere tree of the forest they cut down...w/silver & gold they make it pretty...w/nails they fasten it down...the doing of any good is not in them..." The theme in chapt.10 is idols.It's very clear that God abhorred this practice.We can rationalize and say we don't worship the tree so that makes it ok.But why do it at all. It has nothing to do with Jesus!
