Jesus is God the Son

Psalm 2:7 -- I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father (Also Hebrews 1:5).

Matthew 1:18 -- This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.

John 3:16 -- "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 14:28 --...If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

Matthew 3:17 -- And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."

Matt 26:63-64 -- But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.

Romans 1:4 -- ...and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.

Hi Jeff,
The first video reminded me of the scripture when Jesus said i didn't come to bring peace but a sword!

Hi Tamela,

Yes, and especially in certain countries, becoming a Christian can cause your family to disown you as a traitor, and can even lead to being killed. The Name of Jesus is more divisive than any other name, whether it be a religious or a secular name.

No other religious leader or founder or god or prophet is used as a curse word, except Jesus/God. In other countries, their curse words are never about their gods; they only use curse words that have to do with sexual things, or bodily functions. Only here do we have curse words that blaspheme the name of Jesus/God. You never hear the names of Buddha or Mohammad or Confucious or Lao Tze or Allah or Zeus or Joseph Smith or Charles Taze Russell or Shiva or Krishna being used as curse words.

It's easy to explain why. Satan doesn't want to curse the false (fictional) gods that he authored (or the founders of false religions). The only Name he wants to curse is that of the one and only, living, true God, and Jesus Who is God the Son (and, in recent years, the Holy Spirit, as well).
