Traditionally, the divine name (YHWH aka "Jehovah") is associated with God the Father - the God of the Old Testament. Jesus is associated with God the Son, the incarnation of the Godhead. Traditionally, the LDS answer is very straight-forward: God the Father is one distinct person, Jesus is another. From a non-Trinitarian perspective this is very easy to ...

This is the nature of the Godhead, the Son rejoices to do the will of the Father, though He is equal with the Father (Philippians 2:6). Similarly, the Holy Spirit does not speak on His own authority but does the will of the Father (John 16:13), yet He is also equal. This unselfish love amongst the Godhead is a relationship men find difficult to comprehend. ...

What Revelation 1:1 describes is God the Father giving God the Son His permission to now reveal to us what is to come. It does not mean that Jesus did not know what these events were. This is the nature of the Godhead, the Son rejoices to do the will of the Father, though He is equal with the Father (Philippians 2:6). Similarly, the Holy Spirit does not ...

The New American Standard Bible Updated Edition seems to assume that Isaiah 48:16 is speaking of the Triune God, in that the words Me and Spirit are capitalized. Not so the NET Bible, however, which does not capitalize either word. The reason for the NET's approach to the verse is that the NET's translators are perhaps thinking of a man, an earthly king ...

Mark 13:32 However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. The basic understanding, coming from an Trinitarian perspective, is that Jesus was fully God and fully man, both. Yet, all that He did on the Earth, He did as a man, and not "as" God. That ...

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. We do know that Jesus did not have all of the knowledge of the Father. Philippians 2:6-7 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a ...

Why does it appear that Jesus at some time did not know what God knew concerning the little details of the last days? I don't see how this verse could be read as implying this: nothing in it suggests that Jesus didn't know the revelation that God (the father) gave him before he was given it. I'd interpret this verse as saying that the revelations that ...

Actually the answer is very simple. The confusion lays in the meaning of the word "revelation". It can be taken as "disclosure of earlier not known truths" which was to John for sure BUT it can by understood as "portion of facts and doctrines" which God the Father decided to reveal to humanity and passed it on through Jesus to John. In that sense it was NOT ...

As far as I know about Christianity, God is All-Powerful who created everything and cannot be restricted by anything. That would mean that God actually defines what sin is. In other words, lying is wrong because God says it is wrong, killing is wrong because God says so...and so on. Otherwise, God would not have everything under His control. In order to ...

Please excuse any typographical errors, but the only way I can answer questions is to not proof read them, since that process is extremely time consuming, for me. The answer to your question as stated in paragraph 3; (So, the question is did Jesus become God's Son in the begetting in Mary or is he God's Son before he was begotten in Mary?), is both. Now ...
