COMMENTARY: Did Jesus ever claim to be God?

CommentaryDid Jesus ever claim to be the Almighty God? At John 3:16, Jesus referred to himself as God’s “only begotten SON.” Other Scriptures where Jesus referred to himself as God’s Son include John 5:19, 20, 25, and John 10:36.

Jesus apostles and disciples knew Jesus as God’s Son, NOT as God.

Jesus even blessed Peter for accurately recognizing who he really is – God’s Son. Matthew 16:16, 17; John 1:49; 2 Corinthians 1:19; Galatians 2:20; 4:4 etc.
Consistently, the Bible refers to Jesus as “Son of God” or God’s Son – NEVER as “God the Son.” Why? Because Jesus is NOT God but God’s SON. No wonder that Jesus said at John 20:17 that the Almighty is his Father and his GOD.

Why would Jesus have a GOD if he himself is God? At Mark 13:32, why did Jesus say that he did not know the day or hour when the world will end but only his Father knows? If Jesus is God, would he not have known when the world will end? If Jesus is God, why did he say at John 14:28 that his Father is GREATER than him?

The fact is: Jesus is the SON of God. This is a very important fact to know according to John 17:3. Let us not be fooled by any twisting of the Scriptures to believe in a mysterious three-in-one God, an idea that came from Pagan nations such as Egypt, Assyria, and Babylon, whose people worshiped three-in-one false gods.

    Scripture is loaded with evidence that Jesus Christ is God. Yes Jesus is the Son of God but He is also God. That’s why Paul calls it a mystery. To deny the deity of Christ is antichrist. He said, ” if you deny me I will deny you” It is very sad that this erroneous article has to be published to mislead many. Let us not be misled by the enemy. Anyone who believes this misinterpretation of scripture is damned. Search the scriptures an ask God’s Holy Spirit to teach you the Truth. Jesus Christ is undeniably God the Father Himself. He said it mot me . And I believe Him. Or else that makes Him a liar. And He is not.

    John 8 : 58 Jesus said. ” Truly, Truly I say unto you before Abraham was I AM” Compare that to Ex3: 14 where God tells Moses , I Am has sent you” The Father called Himself I am, Jesus called Himself I am
    They are one and the same. In John 14: 9 Phillip said ” Lord show us the Father.” Jesus replied, ” Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father…” Jhn 5:18 The Jews tried to kill Him because He made Himself equal with God. 1 Tim 3:16 ” Great is the mystery of godliness, God was manifest in the flesh…. Preached to the gentiles.. received up into glory” We know that this verse is speaking of Jesus yet it says God. Acts 20: 28
    “.. Take heed unto yourselves…Feed the church of God which He hath purchased with His own blood.” We know Jesus shed His blood for the church yet the scripture says God purchased the church with His own blood. God’s blood. One Hebrew name for the God is Elohim which is plural. It denotes the plural nature of God. In Genesis He said ” Let US make…

    Is Jesus God? If we believe that the word of God is divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit and the final authority in religion then let us see what scripture has to say. Speaking of Jesus Isiah prophesied (Is 6:9)- His name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
    John 1:1. 14, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the word became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus is the Word who was in the beginning , He was and still is God who came and dwelt among us. He claimed to be God when He said to the paralytic” Thy sins be forgiven thee” Mark 2: 5- 11. He was accused of Blasphemy in that only God can forgive sins. He did not attempt to deny or rebut. Thus accepting the fact that He is God. Thomas fell before Him after the resurrection and said unto Him ” My Lord and my God.” John 20: 28. Again Jesus did not deny John’s worship.

    In the final chapter of the Revelation chapter 22 verses 18 and 19 GOD wrote of anyone adding or subtracting from HIS Holy Book.And I know HE did not just put it there as to waste ink and paper.HE knew who HE had created,man,and what he,man,was capable of doing. And so, I am convince that stuff was taken off and added in over the years.For example easter is mentioned once in the BIBLE.The folks way back knew of no such thing.In the 4 books that Moses wrote no such thing was ever mention.How did it work its way in there. I’m surprised christmas is not in there as well..However with all the adding and subtracting GOD’s people are going to know the truth never-the-less because HIS HOLY SPIRIT is right here on earth among us doing HIS bidding.As HE said,HIS sheep hear HIS voice and they follow.So don’t bother with what’s tampered with in HIS HOLY BOOK,HE’LL deal with that,that’s not for me to hurt my head about.HE’S JEHOVAH GOD,bigger,smarter than all of us,man, put together..

    This goes to show that, we are all the same from below but different from above, The Bible is a good guidance for us to survive in a stupid world but it goes together with Leviticus. We are give all the senses and the abilities to use them. To make matters short, no human being can make a baby they only give birth, A BLACK COW GIVES WHITE MILK, You never meet the boss who employed you, just the supervisors. There are things you cannot prove but you have to learn to accept. AS the father have sent me, I also send you ,go and teach all nations.

    1 John 5:7 says ” For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
    There are three persons which make up one God, just like in the United States, there are three branches of government (the judicial branch, the executive branch, and the legislative branch) which make up the one United States government. None of the branches have more power than the other. Each person in God has a function, just like each branch in the US government has a function.
    Also Isaiah 33:22 (For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us) also talks about the three functions of God. James Madison, a US president and the person known as the Father of the US constitution based the structure of the United States government on Isaiah 33:22 to create the three separate and equal branches in 1787 at the constitutional convention.
    Yes, there are three persons and they make up one God.

    Isaiah Chapter 9 verses 6 &7 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Amen

    The man who historically is known as “Jesus of Nazareth” is “the Only Begotten Son of God.” “Only Begotten” is translated from one single Greek word. He was not a son of God in the sense that you and I may become sons of God. Only begotten means He was the unique or one of a kind Son.

    His relationship to God (the Father) is like the relationship of the rays of the sun to the sun itself. The rays of the sun are in very truth the sun. They are as old as the sun and will endure as long as the sun. Without the sun thy would not exist. The Bible says Christ is “…the brightness of (God’s) glory, and the express image of his person, …” (Hebrews 1:3) This is why Christ referred to himself as the Son because it was His mission to reveal the Father. He referred all glory back to the Father. However at times He did indirectly identify Himself as God such as in John 5:18.

    • August 13, 2016

      Now look a some scriptures that identify Christ as God.

      “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)

      “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

      “And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.” (John 20:28)

      “… … feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” (Acts 20:28)

      “For in him dwelleth all the fullness the Godhead bodily.” (Colossians 2:9)

      “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh. justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16)

      “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy…

      • August 13, 2016

        Continuation:

        “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom.” (Hebrews 1:8)

        “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”(Revelation 1:8)

        This list is not exhaustive. There are many other scriptures in both the old and New Testaments that show our Lord Jesus Christ was and is God. We do not have space here to give you them all.

        But rejoice :!: Our salvation does not depend on a mere human being. It depends on God Himself :!: But we must personally BELIEVE that He died for us on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and rose again! We must RECEIVE Him as our personal Savior.

        Mary knew the One she carried in her womb was GOD, and she knew He was her Savior. She said “…my spirit hath rejoiced in GOD my Savior.” (Luke 1:47)

        Is HE your Savior :?:

Two weeks ago while on my way to Louisiana, driving in a high profile, high profile sport car, my maximum speed is 225 miles per hour, I was traveling between 65, and 75 miles per hour in a totally convertible, when someone ran me off the Freeway between Dallas Texas, and Shreveport Louisiana,

I know had it not been for God my mate and I would be dead. Instead of Ambulance coming to remove two dead bodies, I drove my car out of the ravine back unto the free, without a scratch on our body, nor a single dent on my car!

    Your comment is not based on knowledge, is shows gross ignorance on your part. There is a difference between verified knowledge and religious beliefs, unfortunately you let the latter, religious beliefs override your thinking in the search of truth. To suggest that Jesus is the son of God and base that belief on quotes from the bible is somewhat shallow. Do you know that in the bible there are many verses making references to sons of God, so according to your bible Jesus was not the only son of God.

    There is the “Sun” of God, the one and only, it is the light of the world. That Sun gives life, without it we would perish, it rises everyday, our life here on earth depends on it, now that is the truth, a truth no one deny.

    • Gary, you are a fool, another of the devils tool!

      The Bible said “as many as believed in him (that is Jesus Christ) to them gave he power to become the sons of God!”

      Let me prove you to be a confounded idiot! If you studied the word of God, you may read where Jesus was in a house, teaching, and preaching, when someone told him his mother and siblings (brothers) were on the outside apparently wanting to see him.

      What was Jesus response?

      Those who do the will of my father, are my brothers, and sisters! You need to learn to study the book and understand what you read and interpret the word before you come out making your unfounded and silly comments, which makes no sense!

      You are playing as if you are so smart, but each time I read you; I find your comments to be nothing more than hogwash! The scriptures quote are not 100% as it is written, but if you take some time to look it up you will find that it is written in the Word of God.

      “I don’t believe in God … ”

      So many commentators say they don’t believe in God, or they don’t believe the Bible.

      They have some catching up to do. Over 40% of the scientists in the U.S.A. now attend church on a regular basis.

I will give you the names of lawyers in recent times who said the evidence of Christ’s resurrection would stand up today in a modern court of law. One of these lawyers was NOT a Christian when he began to research the resurrection. He intended to write a book about Jesus and leave him in the tomb. When he finished the book he called it The Book that Refused to be Written.

      Jesus claimed to be the Son of God and the only way of salvation. He also predicted His own death and resurrection. When He stepped out of the tomb He validated all…

      • August 16, 2016

        No founder of any of the other “great world religions” ever foretold his death and resurrection. But Jesus Christ did! He is risen from the dead and He is Lord! The empty tomb is there to prove that Jesus lives.

        His resurrection proves He is all he claimed to be.

        After He rose He appeared to many people including an appearance when He was seen by 500 people at one time. When the New Testament scriptures were written many of them were still living, and many of the people who had actually seen Him performs His greatest miracles were still alive. Not one of these ever came forward and said the resurrection did not happen or the reports of the miracles were not true. In the first century nobody wrote anything denying these claims.

      Because the opinions about WHO Jesus is are as plentiful as the people asking who He is.

      After WHO He is there is only one question as important and it is more personal. That question is WHAT will you do with Jesus?

      What will you do with Jesus
      Neutral you cannot be.
      Someday your heart will be asking
      What will He do with me?

      You must decide how you will respond to Him.

      You must decide because of WHAT He did for you on the cross.

      You must decide because WITHOUT Him you have no Savior.

      You have a choice. Either REJECT Him or RECEIVE Him as your Savior. But one thing you cannot do. You cannot IGNORE Him. He is too big to be ignored.

      “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:10-12)

      Four people dislike the comment without reasoning why.

      Why do we do we as a former enslaved people cling so hard to the God given to us by the white man witout even bothering to examine and question it? Blind faith is also known as brainwashing which we have been the systematic victims of without realising.

      Remember that Christianity came with slavery and what race other than black people worship a God given by former captors? Please research what the above poster has mentioned because it may open the eyes of those black people who want to be enlightened. Understand that what we believed as Gospel was taken from elsewhere in history, a history that we were already a part of. dont fall for that image of Cesare Borgia which throughout our lifetimes has been upheld as the Son of God.

      Of course there were pagan religions that had a holy Child (Messiah) and the Holy Mother and family. Some of these beliefs actually took root and had their own followings for a time. This should be no surprise. Satan knew all this was coming because God had promised it and it was written by the Hebrew prophets in the Old Testament scriptures. Satan is the master counterfeiter and deceiver. He produced counterfeits before the fact and in his own way “fulfilled” the Old Testament prophesies before the time. But none of these counterfeits measured up to what God had promised. Not one lasted or amounted to anything.

      You can deny Christ and reject Him. You can mock and ridicule the millions who follow Him after 2,000 years. You can die in your sins and be lost forever if this is your choice. God will allow you to do this. :cry:

      This is not true.

      Every country has problems including my own. However, we are talking here about Dominica.

      The problems your country faces like those of every country are the results of not living under the Lordship and rule of Jesus Christ. I am not referring to the PM or the government. This is a personal matter for each individual. If your people would bow to the authority of Word of God and subject themselves to His revealed will in the Holy Scriptures it would result in the healing of the nation.

    if Christ was god,,,then their would not have been anyone to intercede on our behaves,,Christ teach us to pray,,he said say when you pray ,,say our father who art in heaven,,,i have tried to realistically understand the power of the trinity and can’t see it clearly,,,the trinity of god the father,,mary and Christ is seemingly more evident,,in days gone by ,man felt the wrath of god immediately as the nations sinned,,look at the state of the world today had it not been for Christ this world would have been destroyed already,i strongly believe Christ is the one withholding hands of god,i say this because even when he was being crucified,he said forgive them lord for they no not what they do,christ is begging for our changes,,he has been holding back the wrath of god for generations now.

      Amen and amen……

    • You had better believe Jesus Christ is God!

      If you wish to confirm that read: John 1:1-5 ” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

      2. The same was in the beginning with God.

      3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

      4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

      5. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.

      If you go to verse 10, you will read ” He was in the world, an d the world was made by him, and world knew him not.”

      “I Am that I am” those words was spoken to Moses, when he sent Moses into Egypt to take the take the children of Israel out of bondage, so too somewhere in the New Testament he said again ” I Am.” And remember he told some if you see me you have seen the father!

      • “If you go to verse 10, you will read ā€ He was in the world, an d the world was made by him, and world knew him not.ā€

        That should read: “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.”

        Now where the Bible in John speaks of the Word, and the Word was with God, and Word was God, every Biblical scholar agrees that the ” Word ” is indeed Jesus Christ.”

        Now all the Dominica gods can give me as much thumbs down as they wish, fight The Trinity: God Jehovah, Jesus Christ and the Holy Sprit, cause you Dominicans seem to have more power than God!

      Mary is not Divine. She is not part of the Trinity. She is not a mediator between God and man. (1 Timothy 2:5) She was a good woman. The Bible calls her “blessed among women” (Luke 1:42 so I do not hesitate to refer to her as “blessed”.

      We do not pray to Mary. Jesus said when we pray we are to say “Our Father which art in heaven, …”
      (Matthew 6:9)

      Mary was a sinner. If she was not a sinner she would not have needed a Savior. But Mary herself said “My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.” (Luke 1:46,47) Please take note of this. Mary knew the baby within her was God AND her Savior.

      But yes, God is a Trinity. He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one God.

      The Trinity worked creation.

      The Trinity worked redemption.

      The Trinity works your salvation.

      The entire Bible supports the teaching of the Trinity. This truth is everywhere in the Holy Scriptures.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill…

    And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. Exodus 3:14 . It was the p reincarnate Jesus who spoke to Moses.
    Jesus said unto them, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” John 8:58
    Yes! Jesus did say that He is God. God is a plural word in the Hebrew language.
    Jesus says that the entire scriptures reveal Himself: “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” John 5:39
    And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”Matthew 28:18. Study the Word of God with intention to believe what God has to say and do not allow Satan to deceive you with false doctrine which seem to conform to human logic. God says: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall…

        The Bible – the Scriptures of Truth – were breathed out by God. This book is the inspired Word of God.

        It tells us of our sins. It informs us of a place called hell where we will spend eternity if we do not repent and trust the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. It reveals to us God’s wonderful plan of salvation, how that

        “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

        The Bible liberates us from the guilt of sin, and sets us free from sins bondage.

        Other books disagree among themselves. Nothing they say has worked well. They have not lasted long. But this book – God’s book – has lasted almost 2,000 years! It has been translated into more languages than any other book on Planet Earth and today it is the world’s best seller.

        Nothing you have said in this comment is true. You would have a difficult time giving an example of a single statement you have made.

        When people don’t want to acknowledge the authority of the Bible – the Word of God – it is because they don’t want to obey the moral commandments of God. They are waiting for an opportunity to let loose with an attack on the Scriptures. We see a lot of this on DNO.

        People say things in contempt for the Bible that has no content. There is not logical in their argument, and they have no terms of reference, so it is impossible to debate their statements.

    Jesus said only God is to be worshiped Matthew 4:10.So if He is not God y let people worshiped Him.?A woman worshiped Him Matthew 15:25 Why didn’t He stopped the lady?His disciples did the same. Y not say to them You are mistaken,worship God, not Me?” Is not Jesus the TRUTH.?Even the wise men recognized Him as God and said “we come to worshiped Him”Matthew 2:2
    God the Father said when Jesus returns on the earth the second time.I will make all My angels worship Him Hebrews 1:6. First born in this verse does not mean.First one that was born, but means ranks or ranks above all others. e.g first lady Michelle Obama.
    Now here is the bombshell.Are you ready? God Almighty calls Jesus God, Hebrews 1: 8 But to the Son (JESUS) He God says “Your throne O GOD,is forever.”
    Please don’t try to understand it,You will go mad.our minds are to shallow just believe God and if God called Jesus Christ God, How dear you tell God He is lying.? King David said “I believe 2 see your salvation”

    The Godhead: Three separate beings united in love, purpose and mission. Trinity simply means three in unity. Just because the word Trinity is not in the Bible does not mean that the concept is not Biblical. Remember that the word bible is also not in the Bible. Also,if there is a counterfeit Trinity, which is indeed pagan, the there must be a genuine Trinity for Satan counterfeits everything that God does in order to deceive mankind.
    Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.Acts 17:29
    For in Him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.Colossians 2:9

    Only God is to be worshiped, but the Father command the angels to worship Jesus: “And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him” Hebrews 1:6
    God the Father Himself called Jesus God. “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.” Hebrews 1:8
    Jesus is the express image of the father and He said to Phillip: Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?”John 14:9

    Simeon you believe what you want. Let others believe what they want. While we at it, and to be cynical, if Jesus is God’s son then God must have had a wife. After all we were made in his image and likeness, hence eve was made for adam to mirror what God had in heaven. Why then would God have a Son send him to earth to do all this if he had no intention of making him God one day. God does not need a son or anyone if there is no intention to have any successor. Offspring serve only one purpose, that is continuity of genes and bloodlines. Every king has an heir who becomes King. Jesus maybe through his death and resurrection was going through the process to take up the thrown in heaven to make him King/Heir/God. Probably christianity dont really realize that he meant image and likeness in true sense and the blueprint for earthly kingdoms were designed based on structure in heaven. Or maybe heaven is truly another far away planet. Ok i will leave that for another discussion…

    A orrect interpretation, given the proper context will reveal that Jesus is God. Jesus being called the Son of God does not mean that the Father gave birth to Him or created Him. The expression is simply a relational expression so that we would understand the mission of Jesus on Earth. Remember He is also called the son of man. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (the Father), and the Word (Jesus) was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made (created) that was made (created). 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.” Jesus is the Creator and so is the Father and so is the Holy Spirit.

    This is a good question. Yes Jesus claimed to be God,When Christ allowed himself to be tempted by satan, it was not to see if He could sin, but it was to proved that he could not sin.In that temptation Satan asked Christ to fall on His knees and worship him.He answered Satan.
    “The scriptures say, Worship ONLY the Lord God.”
    Christ made it clear, only God is to be worshiped.The question is why did He allowed and accept worship from people? is either He is a fraud or He is GOD. A ruler came and WORSHIPED Jesus Matthew 9:18.Again Matthew 14:33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped Jesus.

      You are wrong. Doing \”obeisance\” to Jesus does not mean that Jesus is God. It just means that Jesus was treated as a noble or someone of title like a King. Jesus repeatedly reminded his disciples that his father alone is God.

    It is clear that the author of the article has a lack of understanding knowledge of biblical analysis and interpretation and yet seeks to deceive others and himself; He has no knowledge of the historical and religious knowledge of the Jews during Jesus’ days on earth. While he selectively quoted passages from Scripture to suit his thinking and belief, he totally ignored the basic rules of biblical interpretation where no one simply lifts passages out of the text without understanding the context of the Passage or the religious beliefs and understanding of the persons to whom Jesus spoke to at the time.

    For example, he quoted John 5:19 without understanding the context of the passage. a simple understanding of the passage would find his reasoning totally faulty. A loo at John5:16-18 would clearly reveal that Jesus equated himself to the Father since Jesus equated the Father’s attribute to the Son also. (See John 1:1-16;10:28-30; Phil.2:5-6;Titus 2:13-14

      Truth is the Bible is really an exaggerated and over-glorified version of Jewish history. Many stories were stolen/rewritten by Moses when he was among the Egyptian hierachy – where he learned to read and write. All the Bible stories have a “pagan”origin. It all began with reverence for the sun, moon and stars.

      When someone can properly explain the origin of sin, then they may have my ear. You say God is pure and perfect, omnipotent and all-knowing. Yet evil is everywhere, even more prominent than God. Didn’t he know what he was doing at that time? And even after sending his son, nothing has changed….oh, it is said that I can now pray to God directly!!

      • August 17, 2016

        First: If you are right why did Jesus say “Thou shalt worship the Lord they God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10) ?

        Second: Where did Jesus remind his disciples that his Father alone is God? I will have to have the book, chapter, and verse for this.

        In university a philosophy professor (an atheist) was giving a lecture on “relativity”.

        A Christian girl stood up. “Are you absolutely sure of that Sir?” she asked.

      The unbelievers who write to DNO announcing their atheism and mocking the Christians are obviously angry people and bankrupt when it comes to having anything better to offer.

      Jesus Christ is “the way, the TRUTH, and the life.” He is the great liberator. He said “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” I have seen HIM set people free from fear, covetousness, alcohol, drugs, and perversion. Those who follow Him for the most part avoid these things.
