“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:1-5 (KJB)
Why is there such a concerted effort by some to disavow the truth of Scripture that Jesus is God incarnate, God in the flesh? It is stated clearly in the first fourteen verses of John chapter one.
Jesus Christ is the word that became flesh, and dwelt among us.
One reason I think that certain organizations of religion try to argue against His deity; or to be more clear on it; co-equal with the Father, is that they have a doctrine of their own to protect. That is why they constantly are changing their own translation of the Bible, and the verses which clearly testify of Christ true identity, and relationship to the Father, to read in a way that makes Jesus deity, but not co-equal with Him.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Son of Man, who is God the Son. Scripture, untwisted by man, constantly unveils the truth that Jesus Christ is indeed Deity alongside, equal with the Father [YHWH].
