Theological, Christian heresy: “God is not a Person, or God would be Created!”
Christian response to the heresy of Gnosticism…
The ugly snake of Gnosticism raises its viperous head once again denying the hypostatic union of God and man in Jesus Christ-Yeshua. God is Spirit (John 4:24) and in order to fulfill His will among mankind concerning the defeat of Satan (1 John 3:8b) and the reconciliation between Himself and His creation in Time (2 Corinthians 5:18), God manifest in flesh (Philippians 2:5-8) through the womb of a virgin woman, born under the Law (Galatians 4:4) approximately 2019-yrs ago and walked among us for 33.5-yrs defining God the Father and proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel that provides victory over Satan, death, Hell and the grave for everyone who believes that Jesus Christ is God who died to pay their sin-debt and was resurrected from the dead for their justification (Romans 10:9-10; Luke 4:18; John 3:16).
If you reject the deity of Jesus Christ, you will die in your sin and you will die the “second death” in Hell (John 8:24; Rev. 20:11-15). The tell-tale indicator that one has truly been “born again” by the Spirit of God is their ability to recognize Jesus Christ and His deity and His Truth as it is the Spirit that testifies with our spirit that we are indeed children of God (Matthew 16:17; Romans 8:16). It is one’s ability via the rebirth by grace through faith in Messiah to see and internalize the deity of Jesus Christ-Yeshua that defines and separates the Christian from the religions, sects, cults, of the World.
It is written concerning Jesus Christ as God…

All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:15-18 (NKJV)
