    jesus is a god but not god the Absolute. jesus was sent by god to serve. jesus didn't send himself as god. jesus, like you, has the spirit within himself, is like colossians 3:14 and jesus is a servant. god dwells everywhere and doesn't send itself anywhere because it will be what it will be, or I AM that i am


    acts 3:13.

    Jesus has accepted worship in the Bible. One example is in John 20:28-29 when Thomas called him, “ My Lord and my God.” Jesus didn’t deny this or try to correct him.

    Because He is God. I don't recall Him having a problem with Thomas calling Him "my Lord and my God" (John 20:28).

    God is above all as love. God is first a verb exodus 3:14.

    God is a Being with a character, not just some attribute.

    Religion:
    God of Abraham
    What did Jesus teach? 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
    So if Jesus is God in flesh then who is his Father?

    Jesus told the descendants of Abraham. King James Bible
    They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

    Jesus is the Son of God and is to be known as such. 35The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the Holy One to be bornd will be called the Son of God.

    When Stephen died the book of Acts clearly states: 55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

    Who was stood on the right hand of God? So many teachings crept in. As Moses made like god unto Pharaoh he never ceased being a man. For Christ to die in our place he had to be made fully human. Just as the first Adam by the will of God and not by the means of flesh or man. Jesus was like Moses and he is the Son of God. In fact even Satan recognized who he was.

    6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    Who will give his angels charge concerning him?

    King James Bible
    Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:


    For Jesus to die he had to be fully flesh but unlike mans sinful nature he had no sin. We know God is sinless and he was like God he had no sin. His words were spirit and they were life, Sometimes we can all be mislead to believe a doctrine which is not given by God to man. Why is it that Jesus rejects those when he returns who believed in him and did wonders and miracles in his name? You see there is two commandments. 1, Love the LORD your God with all your heart as Jesus did. 2, Love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus showed that Peters answer about who he was was a key. He also told us that the only way to show love for Jesus was to obey his commandments, Those commandments summed up the whole of the laws and teachings of the Prophets.
    According to the bible. Now if you believe these things taught by Christ and even Peter in Acts 10:38. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

    Are incorrect then I want to be corrected. Please show me.

    Any God worth worshiping wouldn't want to be worship.

    the name implies that all is god, thus one cannot elevate one of god's children above another.
