The Jehovah Witnesses I talked to today told me that Jesus was a “subcontractor” of sorts. They said He was a god, not the God. I enjoyed our conversation about Jesus but I had to think, when I walked away, that Jesus is so much more than a subcontractor. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He said so:
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
He also said that He was God:
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Those who knew Him, who wrote the Bible, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said He was God:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”–John
So I’ll continue to believe that Jesus is God, is eternal, is the way, the truth, and the life. He is so much more than a subcontractor.
