How do you "acknowledge that Jesus is the son of God"?

What does this mean to you?

Jesus mirrored the love of God (the spitting image of God) because he expressed love, which God is. Therefore, he is called the son of God. I am a 'daughter of God' in training. So I acknowledge he is the son of God every time I love my fellow man as myself.

Hi sparrow!!
How are you?? Good, I hope!! I just happened to see your thread and thought I'd throw in my two cents (if it is really worth that much) LOL. I believe that you are speaking of 1John 2:23 which says: 23. "Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also". Funny thing is that I just did a study on the spirit of antichrist and posted a thread on another forum which included this verse and adjacent verses to it in my thread. I am going to post the same thread here on CD later. Anyway, in my opinion, if you notice the verse does not say to acknowledge Him as the Son of God, but only to acknowledge Him. In order to figure out how to acknowledge him, you need not look further than the following verse which says: 24. Let that therefore "abide" in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

You MUST abide in what you have heard from the beginning. What exactly does that mean??? Abide means to...........(are you ready for that dreaded word!!)............OBEY!!!! In the very beginning after God had made all things and placed man in the garden of eden, God said something to Adam!! It would have been the very first thing heard by man!! "And the Lord commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest therof thou shalt surely die." Obey my commandments or thou shalt surely die!!! So, to acknowledge Christ, is to abide in God's 10 commandments which Jesus showed us can be accomplished. Sorry sparrow, I know thats not what you wanted to hear, but again........................my two cents (whatever it's worth to ya)!!!



GOD BLESS!!!!

Hey .... to me that takes us to love God and love your neighbour as yourself, looking to the spirit of the law - which is also, if you sow to the spirit you reap life which, I don't think any of us disagree with.... Thanks for your 2 cents worth ..... I would say value for the money spent

You do understand that the loving God part falls under the first four commandments (or the first tablet of stone), and the loving your neighbor under the second 6 commandments AKA the second tablet!

Well it seems the sabbath is always the issue here. But I see it not only as the very first commandment in the bible, but also the only commandment that starts with the word REMEMBER!!!! Maybe your right. I think he wanted us to forget!!

You stick to your story and I'll stick to mine.



GOD BLESS!!!!
