Is Jesus actually God or just a Son of God?

Theological statement on FB: “You claim Jesus Christ is God but is not God the Father and yet the Bible says there is one God and Father of all…I PITY YOU A LOT.”

Christian response,

Jesus is God the Son; you can’t see or physically interact with God the Father (John 1:18) as He is Spirit (John 4:24) and Jesus is the only “begotten” of the Father; that is, Jesus is the EXACT image of the Father (Colossians 1:15-18) but Jesus entered the Realm of Time in flesh (Philippians 2:8; John 1, Colossians 1) so that we can know God intimately (John 14:8-10) and so that God could fulfill His Covenant with mankind which was ordained “before the beginning of Time” through the Gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 1:9-10).

If God did not manifest in flesh and make atonement for your sin through the shedding of innocent blood (Matthew 26:28; Hebrews 9:22; Hebrews 10:5-6) you would be dead in your sin spiritually and die the second death in Hell without hope (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 14:6). If you reject the deity of Jesus Christ or you’re unable to see the necessity for the deity of Christ, you’re NOT redeemed by the blood of Christ, you’re absent the indwelling Holy Spirit and you’re living without hope and will die in your sin lest you repent (John 8:24).

The one who is redeemed by faith in Christ and has received the indwelling Holy Spirit as the Seal and Guarantor of that relationship (Ephesians 1:13-14) will recognize that Jesus is God who died to pay their sin-debt (John 8:24); therefore, you are the one to be pitied, not the Christian.

Jesus - he who has seen me has seen the father
John 1: …No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father s side, he has made him known. John 14: …Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me…
