    "Christians" is what unbelievers called those who believed in Jesus Christ. There is no such thing as a Christian God. There is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob or the God of all Creation.

    Christian basically means "anointed ones'.

    "By this the love of God was revealed in our case, that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world so that we might gain life through him. The love is in this respect, not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins." -1 John 4:9, 10

    Accordingly, if Jehovah God dispatched Christ how can Jehovah God have actually been made in the image of Christ?

    there were those who believed jesus and didn't call themselves christian. it was the church at antioch that created a name for themselves.


    to believe doesn't require the practice of idolatry

    At Acts 9:2 we learn that Christ's disciples initially referred to their new religion as "The Way." Soon thereafter, though, “[they] were by divine providence called Christians.” (Acts 11:26)

    This brand new designation signified that they believed that Jesus was the Son of God, who had relayed to humanity the will of his divine Father, Jehovah God. This conviction led these to observe a way of life which visibly distinguished them from the society surrounding them.

    its my understanding that god says and everything is sent into the world.

    there was nothing made that wasn't made of it. so then; if there is nothing made that wasn't created of god, who then is respected most by god?

    some don't follow the nicene creed. it promotes idolatry


    the WAY is simply unconditional love. love covers all wrongs. those who don't love other as self, are wrong doers.

    those who practice idolatry to some and demonize others are wrong doers.

    And the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed was invented several centuries after the death of Christ by the RCC after its apostasy which explains why its doctrine contradicts the Word of God, The Bible.

    It seems you're trying to reference God's Word, The Bible. If so, what specific part(s) are you alluding to?

    There is no Christian God, there is one God, the God of Israel.

    i'm inferring that all things are sent into the world by the word. god isn't a respecter of persons.

    in the OT its known as god's annointed. basically one who has been baptized in the name..


    jesus was one. in fact, he was patterned after another. he wasn't the first
