Once you accept Jesus Christ as Savior what happens to you if you unintentionally undergo a loss of faith in his divinity years later? You still believe in God and love God...you are just struggling with the intellectual concept of Jesus as God's Son. What happens to you? What can you do to receive your faith back?

Here is a resource to help you regarding your struggle with the divinity of Christ...
May the Lord bless you as you study His word!
Jenine, that would not make sense or be possible. As Jesus said
So we cannot go to the Father or God unless we go through Jesus. This is the number 1 basis people fail to understand about God. Many people claim to know God but they absolutely have no IDEA who he is. People don't even know his Love or attributes. The only way to know God is through Jesus. Because he is the exact representation of the Father.
If you accept Jesus as your Lord and saviour and you backslide, it is fine because it is up to Jesus to get you back on your feet. "he leads you on the right path, for his name sake" psalms 23 Lord is my Shepard.
Jesus is our Shepard, we hear his voice and he directs us were to go. He will not allow 1 out of 99 to perish as John 3:16 says. The Will of Jesus Christ is this: that whoever Father gives to him, that he should not lose that person.
So do not beat yourself up because if you did accept Jesus as your Lord, you will be saved.
If you CANNOT accept or understand the deity of Jesus as being God then you will have problems knowing God and his Love. You need to thoroughly study the bible: New Testament and understand who Jesus is. Old Testament has MANY references of God being Jesus.
GOD consist of 3 persons- the Father, the Son who his the Word of Father and the Holy Spirit who is the spirit of Son/Father. When Father speaks "let there be light", Jesus creates the Light because
They CANNOT be separated, Father has authority, the Son and Spirit submits to his authority. Father is completely Light, The word/Son was sent to Earth as a human, he represents what the Father is.
Jenine, the only way to totally understand the concept of Jesus being God is for you to be shown the Scriptures were they point out Jesus is in fact God.
God is a title, God consist of 3 deities in 1. So Father can be referred to as God, Jesus referred to as God or Spirit referred to as God.
"let US make man in our own image". Please think about this quote many times from Genesis 1.
if you want to discuss the bible about Jesus being God or Not, please let me know.
