  • Nope and no one can make you believe unless you allow them to control you decisions for you...it is something you have to decide for yourself.

  • Hebrews 2:17,18 - “Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.

  • 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. John 1:1

    The bible many time refers to Jesus/the son of God as the word. Also if you read the Hebrew word of God it's Elohim, do a study on that and you will find out that Elohim means in a nutshell many in one. So like you and your husband are one, aka united in thought and motivation. God is talke about as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit/Ghost. Gos in fact three but one. They are of one mind and one goal for all creation :) Don't believe me look it up for yourself :)

  • Great verses Hinson : )

    I have some other verses that will show you that Jesus is God. Okay, open your Bible and read Revelation 1:8. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “Who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” -- Who is talking in this verse? God, right?

    Now turn a few pages to Revelation 22:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” Who is talking here? Who is the Alpha and Omega, the Fist and Last, Beginning and End? God, right?

    Now turn back to Revelations 1:17-18 "When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last (stop here and ask again, ‘who is the First and the Last?’). I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!”

    Now you have to ask yourself a question here, when did God d
