    My grandmother taught me everything i needed to know about religion.

    When I graduated high school and was getting ready to go to college, she said, "Im so proud of you. You are my first grandchild to go to college. What can I do for you?"

    Now, I know that none of you have ever been, but college is expensive.

    So I said, "Thanks grandma, but all I need from you is money."

    She showed up as I was packing up to leave for college and said, "Before you leave, take this." And she handed me a brand new bible. King James Version.

    I said, "Thanks grandma, thats exactly what we talked about."

    Couple of months go by, Im having a good time when the phone rings. Its my grandma. She asks, "How are you doing?"

    And I say, "Doing great grandma, but to be honest with you Im running low on money. Could you send me some?"

    She said, "Ok. But let me ask you this, have you been reading your bible?"

    I said, "Yes, grandma, Im on chaper 4." And she said, "Ok then. Ill talk to you later." And hung up the phone.

    A couple of weeks go by and Im starting to struggle when the phone rings. Its my grandma. She asks, "How are things going?"

    I say, "Grandma, Im really starting to struggle. Can you please send me some money?" And she says, "Let me ask you this, have you been reading your bible?"

    I said, "Yes grandma, I wish it was longer!" And she said ok, and hung up the phone.

    A few weeks go by and I have straight A's but Im dropping out of college. When the phone rings. Its my grandma. She says, "Whats wrong? I heard you are dropping out of college? How come.?"

    I said, "You know god damn well how come. Because you wouldnt send me any money." And she said, "Let me ask you this, did you read your bible?" And I just hung up the phone. I was so mad.

    So Im cleaning my dorm room and the last thing I took out was that bible. So I held it in my hands and opened it up for the first time. And inside that bible on the first page was a note in my grandmothers writhing.

     It said, "F*CK YOU!"

    In the Greek ,John 1,1 reads as such:

    The Logos was with Theos and Theos

    Was The Logos.

    John 1,14: The Logos {was made} 1096 S.Concordance.

    To cause to be, to generate,ginomai.

    1T,3| 16: Great is the mystery of Godliness,God

    was manifested.Norine,this word has to be

    understood before coming to the wrong conclusion

    about Jesus,which you have done!

    What was the mystery? Who Jesus WAS is hidden

    in scripture to those who do not Agape the Truth.

    He was manifested,revealed to a few, in a mystery,

    that He is the Logos,or God.That He is God.

    The Word (Greek: Logos) was with God (Greek: Theos) and was God (Theos).

    I gave the Greek words because the New World Translation (that is produced and used by the Jehovah's Wittnesses) incorrectly records this verse as, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god."

    They translate "Theos" as "God" and then in the same verse they translate it as "a god".

    God (Theos) is not just "a god". He is the only true and Living God!

    This verse makes it clear "the Word" (Logos) was not only "with God", but was deity Himself.

    In verse 14, John said this Logos "became flesh and dwelt among us". This is obviously speaking of Jesus Christ.

    John also states, "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life. (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." (1 John 1:1-3)

    Through this Word, Jesus Christ, the world was created. (John 1:3, John 1:10, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:2) Genesis 1:1 says "In the beginning GOD created..."

    Jesus is identified as the Creator, and God is the Creator; therefore, Jesus is deity!

    That is precisely what the preface to John says. To John the three persons of the Trinity were The Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit.

    "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made."

    It is explained in John 1, Hebrews 1, and 1 John 1.

    I thought the bird was the word.

  • Jesus is not God, Jesus Christ is the Word because he is God's chief spokesperson.
