Thinx 46: Deity of Christ

'"The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him."'
-- John 5: 22-23
These words of Jesus are as clear a declaration of his deity as any other. They belong on the short list which included such pearls as John 8:58 [Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am."]

That all may honour the Son, even as they honour the Father? So then all worship, honour, praise, thanksgiving, service, sacrifice, prayer etcetera goes as much to the Son as to the Father. As much as we honour the Father by our declarations of worth and the actions which reflect our belief in him and his worth; all this goes equally to the Son.

How can anyone say that the deity of Christ is a recent thing and not to be believed?

Hi Bruce M. A.,

Call me stupid, but I can feel the presence of God in all living Men and Women that cross my life path. And I feel joy to see His presence in their eyes, even virtual!

Happy to cross your life path, my Brother, and God bless you!
