What is the Relationship Between God The Son and God The Father?

Q: How do you understand the relationship between God The Son and God The Father? because from what i read, they are One and The Same Person!??? kindly help.

A: The Bible says; “God is spirit” – so my understanding (not saying I’m correct) is that God needs to become a human in order to make a credible appeal to human’s – therefore His chosen method was for His spirit to enter and ‘posses’ if you like the flesh body we know as Jesus. So we have a perfect sinless spirit working and bringing Jesus’ flesh – what would otherwise be prone to sin – under control. The Bible says; “Jesus learned to become obedient” which I found incredibly frank of The Bible. So yes we have 2 separate entities, the Father (spirit) and the Son (flesh) becoming one at the same time.

The above is how I see Jesus as both fully man (in his flesh) and fully God/divine (having God’s spirit in full) at the same time and yet one being – a bit like we are 2 in one also; flesh and spirit. I am well aware some denominations do not see Jesus as divine but my belief is that it’s a necessity in order to make His demands for us to keep His commands a reasonable one (since I believe God to be perfectly reasonable) – i.e God (in Jesus) is saying do as I do – not just do as I say. As ever – these are our thoughts only so please ask Holy Spirit for guidance here to bring and guide you into all truth as He promises!:)

All Roads Lead to Heaven Right?

Really? So let me get this straight; when someone comes to you and asks you how they are to get to the local KFC do you just turn round and say; “hey man – just take any road you like – they all lead to KFC in the end!”

Erm I don’t think so. And unlike the freeway which may four or five roads you could take and possibly end up back on the right road, the spiritual roads that exist are so numerous you’d better be double sure you took the right one!

On the freeway many of the roads you might take may lead you in exactly the opposite direction you need to go it – so what makes you think you can tell someone that all spiritual roads lead to the one and the same God?

Not only that – when we buy a map – we know for a fact that all the map designers are using the same template and map from which to print their version.

With spiritual matters there are a bazzillion different ‘maps’ you can use – and many of them are mutually exclusive and claim to be so – such as Christianity and Islam!

Besides – what driver would embark on a long journey without at least looking at a map or taking the time to ask someone which road he is on?

So then – you need to take infinitely more care when dealing with your spritual road map – you’d better study it very hard as you have according to Jesus Christ another problem that the ordinary driver does not face!

Jesus said there are hundreds and thousands of people out there who wish to make merchandise of men – to create false maps and false guides to make $$$$ from your insecurities!

You’d better check your spiritual road-map is authentic and has the seal of approval from the master!

Where Do Denominations Come From?

As ever – please do your own research on this and every other thing you see and hear on the Internet – as the following video is not guaranteed to be correct. However I added it as I believe it does contain a lot of generally useful and more importantly true information you will need to put the now many pieces of the puzzle of the roots of Christianity together.

I am NOT ‘Baptist’ – neither do I have anything against them or consider myself to be an oracle of understanding and knowledge as so many modern pastors do.  However, I do appreciate greatly the no-nonsense approach to teaching (as far as they know) the full Gospel without punches being pulled.

Please note that some – no many many things preachers will state as ‘facts’ are not necessarily so – a little poison poisons the entire barrel! So you MUST STUDY yourself to show yourself approved (advice from The Bible). The question is; is this pastor right when he says that; Baptists belong to no denomination and did not come out of the Catholic and then Protestant line of denominations and churches.

 

What is The Biggest Religious Cult in The World?

First off, to answer this question we would need to find out what a ‘cult’ is. So, what is a cult?

Definition; cult

kəlt/Submit
noun
a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
“the cult of St. Olaf”
a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.
“a network of Satan-worshiping cults”
synonyms: sect, denomination, group, movement, church, persuasion, body, faction
“a religious cult”
a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.
“a cult of personality surrounding the leaders”
synonyms: obsession with, fixation on, mania for, passion for, idolization of, devotion to, worship of, veneration of
“the cult of eternal youth in Hollywood”

So then, we can see that a cult is any religion built around an object (idol) and/or a religion that’s built the doctrines of a man, women or person. Where that man and his (or her) doctrines are placed above the laws, teachings and doctrines of God (of course the question of who is (the real) God is a different question altogether for another article!).

So now that means we can all answer the question; what is the worlds largest cult? very simple to answer. In fact, it’s a question we can all answer for ourselves without me or anyone else having to tell you my or their thoughts or opinions. The truth is out there for all to see – should they so be inclined to search out and find it.

All you need to do is go out there and find the largest group of people that follow a person or personality – a human in other words – a person and revere him or her as described above and you have your answer! Please note; if the person that this group follows claims to be God or their followers claim that this person is God (God – if he is God – has to be all powerful, i.e he must have ALL POWER as by definition you can’t actually have 10 Gods sharing all power as much as some people like to believe from a logical point of view alone – a power-sharing God is no God at all.) this is a very serious claim and one that you MUST study and decide for r if it is true or not. Since if that person is in fact God incarnate – i.e God (spirit) wrapped in flesh like yours and mines spirits are wrapped in flesh – and other claims that that person makes are then by default true, your life may depend on it!

Should Christians Be Involved in Politics?

I will present two arguments here. Why is that? Because some time after I wrote my first completely ‘logical’ reasoning for why Christians should be in politics and essentially reform it, only a few days later – I saw a very well thought out video that argued very logically why Christians should NOT be in politics! Call me fickle, or call me someone who wants to find out what the truth is, and bring it to you! See the two arguments below then YOU must not take my word for it, but read the Truth of Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to tell you the truth, and weigh up the arguments and make your own mind up!

Argument for Christians in Politics

Of course not! We all know the great american constitution was designed to keep religion out of politics and separation of Church and state!

Let God be truthful and all men a liar – The Bible

Ahem… the amazing and incredible and brilliantly designed constitution was designed to keep politics OUT OF RELIGION! It’s the other way round – read it! Real Christians know and accept that all men are capable of lying – and inevitably do at some point and even more so where power is involved. The americans read their Bibles and knew this wisdom and knowing their own hearts to be corrupt like any other man, took it very seriously to heart.

So when the americans saw how the the corrupt British political system and politicians were influencing the Church of England and sensored everything the Church did, so the americans came up with a means for this corruption of religion via bad politics and politicians not to affect religion. Brilliant!

The First Bibles printed in america were printed by Congress. The first amendment was there to allow freedom of religion and prevent a theocracy. So the truth – real and pure religion (and yes – The Bible speaks and uses the word religion!) has got to be in politics. In any case – all our laws though being quietly and systematically eroded are built on the 10 Commandments!

Christianity is all about Reform

Where possible we are to be conformed to the image of Christ – in other words we are to be re-formed – both in character. This goes (where possible) not just for individuals but and that of organisations and institutions and even political parties! I say ‘where possible’ because for instance Martin Luther – very imperfect as he was, found it was not possible to reform the Catholic Church and after being excommunicated began his own reformed gatherings of the brethren. Sometimes this must be done when no reform is possible and the problem with men is that everything they touch they insist on making a business – the church being no exception.

So the answer to the question; should Christians get involved in political issues and parties? must be yes – Christians should and must get involved in politics. The truth must be heard in politics wether regarded or not. How far you will get as a Christian politician is probably not very far – but not the point!

MERE CHRISTIANITY is considered a great 20th century book and a ‘must’ for Christians and atheists alike. In fact anyone who wants real answers as to why so many thinkers believe in a living, loving God, creator, Saviour and Christianity itself. After reading several books on Christianity that did nothing to help my understanding, I came upon C.S. Lewis’s books and Christian writings. Most books about the existence of God are off in their own worlds and do little to encourage and enlighten. This book explained the basis of Christianity and the reasons why it is more plausible to believe that God exists than does not – without leaving anyone in the cold. This book is perfect for the agnostic, the atheist, and Christians that wants to know how a highly sceptical English scholar became ‘ the most reluctant convert of all Britain’. – Logical, simple, but well thought out reasons as to how C.S. Lewis came to give his life to God. I was greatly impressed and have read this book many many times.  VISIT OUR CS LEWIS ONLINE STORE & SHOP >>
