I’m sharing the beliefs of this organization so as to be clear on who Jesus is, not just to us personally, but who HE said (and confirmed) He was, and is.
First, and MOST importantly: JESUS IS GOD. Yes, He’s “God’s Son”, but He is in fact also God.
John 1:1-3,14,18a, 23, 4:26, 5:18, 10:30 (Jesus is the Word) 1 John 5:20
IN THE BEGINNING
In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through Him, and nothing was created except through Him. So the Word became human and made His home among us. No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God. John replied in the words of the prophet Isaiah: “I am a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Clear the way for the LORD’s coming! Then Jesus told her, “I AM the Messiah! (I AM was how God referred to Himself in the Old Testament to Moses on Mt. Sinai). So the Jewish leaders tried all the harder to find a way to kill him. For he not only broke the Sabbath, he called God his Father, thereby making himself equal with God. The Father and I are one.” And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.
MAKING SENSE OF THE TRINITY
Now, I will not debate the numerous times that Jesus is called the “Son of God”, that is irrefutable, BUT it is completely possible for Jesus to be both God and His Son. This illustration should help this make sense:
Think of an egg. The egg has 3 parts to it: a shell, a white, and a yolk. God the Father would be like the shell – He holds everything together. Jesus would be represented by the yolk – the center that all creation hinges on. The Holy Spirit would be represented by the egg white – the mass that surrounds all, and that Jesus said He’d send. Now if you notice; the 3 different parts of the egg are still ONE egg, even if you separated them, they would have still come from the same egg. This is loosely similar to how the Holy Trinity exist: God the Father – God – the Son – God the Holy Spirit. All 3 are God, yet all have their own “functions”.
My hope is that this helps you understand the truth about Jesus Christ. If you have any questions, or would like help understanding this, please don’t hesitate to reach out ♥
