Thank you Mr.F. exactly. Pray for the lost.
@momC...are you saying that Jesus is a lesser god? Just one of many gods? Not the true God?
If so then you worship 2 Gods? or do you not worship Jesus as those back in bible times did ( Luke 24:52, Matthew 14:33, Matthew 9:18, Matthew 2:11), as angels were commanded ( Hebrews 1:6) ? and as written in Revelation 14:7 "...and worship him that made heaven & earth". All things were made by him( John 1:3 ) Has not my hand made all these things ( Acts 7:50)
may Jesus open your eyes.
Thank you Robert C. pray for those still lost & blind. They are under the influence of a fallen angel who will twist & bend scripture. Only Jesus can help them see.
