One view:

According to the Bible Jesus Christ is not God, but God's

son.

Matthew 16:16 - And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou

art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

The Bible reveals that God is Jesus' father. This is why Jesus

taught his followers to pray to his Father.

Matthew 6:9 - Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy

name.

The Bible also shows what is God's name, the name of the father

that has to be Hallowed.

Psalm 83:18 says - That men may know that thou, whose name

alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

God's name is Jehovah. He is the Father of Jesus Christ and the

Most High.

Christians regard Jesus Christ as God in human form. This fact

pervades the whole of scripture, and it is what Jesus claimed.

We read of Jesus claiming to be God (he forgave sins, spoke in

his own authority not God's, performed miracles in his own name,

not God's, accepted worship, and was charged with blasphemy because

he claimed to be God). We read of Jesus sending the Holy

Spirit onto his disciples (not God) as comforter an guide. We read

at the end of Matthew's Gospel Jesus commanding the disciples to

baptise all nations in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

[Matt 28:19] In John's gospel there are further references of

Jesus' divinity (John 1 as an example) as well as in Paul's

letters. In Revelation we read of Jesus as judge - as part of the

Godhead.

The son of a father in Biblical times meant a particular thing;

that the son had all the authority and power of the father, legally

and was not subservient to the father. By stating Jesus is the

'Son' of God the disciples are confirming his divine authority of

the Father and his identification with the Father as God on earth -

Emmanuel, 'God with us'.

But there is only one 'Almighty'. And his name is

Jehovah, not Jesus.

Jesus is called a 'mighty god' but never 'ALL-mighty'. Those are

2 different Hebrew words.

The angels are also called 'god'. But certainly they are not the

same as Jehovah God.

Just because someone is called a 'god', does not mean they are

one-&-the-same as Jehovah God. The word 'god' is just a word, a

title, that can be applied to many in addition to Almighty God.
