Hi, guys —
I have a friend who is a Jehovah Witness and we were talking about Jesus being God.
I told him one of the ways you can know is because the Bible says God created everything alone and that Jesus was the creator. Nevertheless, he said creation was through Jesus and that Jesus was not the creator. This was his response to the passages I gave him:
"You are God, You alone (by himself is God, not 3 persons in 1), .... You have made heaven and earth (but not necessarily by himself)
I am the LORD, who makes all things (but not necessarily by himself), who stretches out the heavens all alone, who spreads abroad the earth by myself. (He roams wherever without anyone, He doesn't need anyone, He is the Almighty.)
- Can you also explain these passages to me:
Proverbs 8:27-30; John 1:3?
He's confident they support his theory.
