Bill your a liar.
"Over the years, the only churches I have declared to be CULT churches are those that teach a different Jesus Christ. This is true of the Mormon church, which teaches that Jesus Christ is a created being and NOT the preexisting deity of John 1:1. The Mormon church also teaches that God is not preexisting; but, was at one time a man, just like you (well, not you in that sense) and me. Then, this Mormon man grew in stature until he was an exalted man -- and then, became God. That is CULT teaching. "
In John 1:1 it says,"
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. How in the world do you figure I don't believe this. Maybe you have a different interpretation of this verse than the rest of man-kind. What does it mean to preexist?
Let's start with Pre-
in advance, preparatory
in front of
[< Latin prae "in front, before" < Indo-European]
Next we have exist-
(past and past participle ex·ist·ed, present participle ex·ist·ing, 3rd person present singular ex·ists)
to be, especially to be a real, actual, or current thing, not merely something imagined or written about
To preexist before the earth, before the universe. What part of this do you disagree with Bill? Jesus and the Father are Preexisting, before the creation of the Universe. Where do you disagree Bill?
Then Bill you say we believe that God was once man. Do you have all the knowledge of God? Are you a Deity? Do you really believe God put everything in the Bible that he knows and is? My belief is that God put in the Bible what is pertain ate to us. We allready know that Jesus was once Man/God.
Remember we are created in his Image.
In Genisis 1-
26 ¶And God said, Let
usmakeman in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own
So Bill quick question for ya. If we were created in Gods image, why does God have the form that we are? Meaning, Our bodies are designed to be functional in our world/ environment. We have hands to grasp and pick things up. We have feet and legs to propel us upon the face of this earth. We have eyes, a nose and ears to hear. These senses are pertain ate to a physical life. How do you explain this away Bill? you can't. It's in the scripture that we are made in his(their) image. Believe it or not Bill, there are infinite things that even you don't know. As I have asked before, why do you not believe there wasn't any rain before Noah? The Universe is infinite and is operating on eternal principals. With vast Oceans upon the earth, how was there no rain? How do you explain how the land was watered. Did Adam and Eve run around with Buckets that didn't exist at the time? Oh thats right the great mist that surrounded the earth. I'm sorry but there is evidence of ancient deserts long before the existance of man. I believe that God created this earth over billions of years. This was all nessesary to prepare this world with all the resourses that we use. Where do you find this no rain in the Holy Bible (any version)? Answer; you don't. You are a Cult unto yourself. Your Church is a Cult because they must believe as you do. Your Church has no authority of God only of your self appointed leaders. Keep praying my brother maybe someday you'll learn the truth and shun your cultist ways.
