    Please read the following scriptures and give me your HONEST opinion on what the Bible is saying. Can the Bible be trusted, or is it NOT RIGHT when it says these things about Jesus? (Romans 5:8) 8 But God recommends his own love to us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 6:9) For we know that Christ, now that he has been raised up from the dead, dies no more; death is master over him no more. (Romans 8:34) Christ Jesus is the one who died, yes, rather the one who was raised up from the dead, who is on the right hand of God, who also pleads for us. (1Thessalonians 4:14) For if our faith is that Jesus died and rose again, so, too, those who have fallen asleep [in death] through Jesus God will bring with him. (2Timothy 2:8) 8 Remember that Jesus Christ was raised up from the dead and was of David’s seed, according to the good news I preach (Romans 1:4) but who with power was declared God’s Son according to the spirit of holiness by means of resurrection from the dead—yes, Jesus Christ our Lord Did Jesus lie when he said the following? (John 17:1,3) Jesus spoke these things, and, raising his eyes to heaven, he said: “FATHER, the hour has come; glorify your son, that your son may glorify you, 3 This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. (John 20:17) Jesus said to her: “Stop clinging to me. For I have not yet ascended to the Father. But be on your way to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and YOUR Father and to my God and YOUR God.’” (Mark 13:32) “Concerning that day or the hour nobody knows, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father. (Of course, that would not be the case if Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were coequal, comprising one Godhead. And if, as some suggest, the Son was limited by his human nature from knowing, the question remains, Why did the Holy Spirit not know?) (Matthew 12:31-32) “On this account I say to YOU, Every sort of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. 32 For example, whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the holy spirit, it will not be forgiven him, no, not in this system of things nor in that to come. (If the Holy Spirit were a person and were God, this text would flatly contradict the Trinity doctrine, because it would mean that in some way the Holy Spirit was greater than the Son. Instead, what Jesus said shows that the Father, to whom the “Spirit” belonged, is greater than Jesus, the Son of man.) (John 14:28) YOU heard that I said to YOU, I am going away and I am coming [back] to YOU. If YOU loved me, YOU would rejoice that I am going my way to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am. Further, look at these scriptures: (1 Corinthians 11:3) But I want YOU to know that the head of every man is the Christ; in turn the head of a woman is the man; in turn the head of the Christ is God. (It should be noted that this was written about 55 C.E., some 22 years after Jesus returned to heaven. So is this the truth here stated in the BIBLE as it applies to the relationship between God and Christ in heaven? Or is Jesus equal to God as many PEOPLE say he is?) (1 Corinthians 15:24-28) Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until [God] has put all enemies under his feet. 26 As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.

Verse 28 reads in different translations like this: (NIV) When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made SUBJECT to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all. (Living Bible) When Christ has finally won the battle against all his enemies, then he, the Son of God, will put himself also under his Father's orders, so that God who has given him the victory over everything else will be utterly supreme. (KJV) And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. (RSV) When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things under him, that God may be everything to every one. (NEB) and when all things are thus subject to him, then the Son himself will also be made subordinate to God who made all things subject to him, and thus God will be all in all.

If all good people go to heaven, what is the need for Jesus as a ransom? Isn't the ransom supposed to be for us so that we might live again? But if we never REALLY die, doesn't that make the ransom useless? And would that ransom really mean anything if, after 3 days, Jesus took back what he gave as a ransom, his body? If I was to pay a ransom to someone to get something back from them, and then took back that very ransom that I paid, doesn't that make the transaction null and void?

And since "disciples" are to be baptized, does that mean that those who practice baby baptism are not following Jesus commands, since babies cannot KNOW who Jesus is?

So after Christ is raised to heavenly life, and after all enemies have been placed under his feet, he then turns everything over to his GOD and FATHER and then subjects himself to GOD. How can God subject himself to himself and give himself what he already has?
