You asked “When Jesus said no one comes to the Father except through me (john 14:6) was Jesus lying or forgetful?”
Jesus was not and is not forgetful the problem is that most Christians are following a none-Biblical dogma called the ‘trinity’. The Rome Catholic Church brought this dogma into Christianity hundreds of years ago in an attempt to bring in more pagan converts, who by the way in almost every pagan religion had a triune God.
Jesus is the Son of God as the Bible plainly states. He was with the Father before the worlds where formed Prov 8:23 “I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.”
Christ is not God only the father is God 1 Cor. 8:6 “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”
Galatians 1:1, Eph 1:2 and there are so many more.
Mark 13:32 “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Notice that if Christ was god or part of what makes up god or even a personality of god then this statement would be false would it not? No one know when the second coming will be except God who is the Father and who is the only True God.
Christ stated in john 20:17 “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”
Notice that Christ has the same Father as we do, moreover Christ has the SAME GOD that we have.
Now read Revelation 3:12 Christ here is speaking to one of the seven churches called Philadelphia, “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”
Here after the resurrection Christ uses the term MY GOD not once, not twice but four times. Christ has a God the same one that we have.
I can go on all day about this.
It is not the Bible that is lying but it is the preachers and the bible teachers who do not know their Bibles and only teach doctrine that are lying. Many may not even know that they are teaching a non-biblical doctrine or even that it is a pagan doctrine. But that is no excuse for them for Christ will say to them away from me you evildoers.
The saints could no more be a go between God and me than could my dog. The Bible is clear on the subject of the dead, they know NOTHING Eccl 9: 5,6 “For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.”
So if the dead know nothing how could they be a mediator? Yet another pagan teaching and one that is not supported by the Bible.
If you want to know what a Saint is read Revelation 14:12 “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
Notice that the Bible describes what a Saint is and what they do.
1) They KEEP the Commandments of GOD (Read exodus 20:1-18, please use the KJV)
2) The have the faith OF Jesus and not the faith IN Jesus as some are teaching today. Yet another falsehood by the churches.
Here is to be found what a saint is and guess what they are alive and not dead and gone.
The faith OF Jesus is what the Saints have, what kind of Faith did Jesus have? Christ had total dependence upon God for everything.
John 8; 42 “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.”
John 8:54 “Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:”
John 12:42 “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”
