Begotten or Created?
My Beloved Brother/Sister;
Remember, "For we are not as many which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."
(2 Corinthians 2:17)
1. Once Saved, Always Saved?
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” 6 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:” 7 “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:”
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”
“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”
“Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:”
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”
“For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.”
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.”
“And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”
