What's Inside....

Excerpts from booklet

The First and Second of the Ten Commandments forbid worship of anyone or anything other than God (Exodus 20:2-5). ... Yet Jesus accepted worship and did not rebuke those who chose to kneel before Him and worship...

The question remains: How was Jesus God? If Jesus was God, then who was the Father He spoke of so often? How could Jesus and the Father both be God at the same time?

Where did Jesus come from? Was He created at some point? Did He come into existence when He was born of Mary? Was He an angel? Was He a spiritual essence or "thought" in the Father's mind prior to His human existence?...
