Re Gal 4:4 "And when the time was fully come God sent His Son" Why do most "Christians" believe Jesus is the Word but the time hadn't come?
"IN THE BEGINNING" (John 1:1) WHEN GOD CREATED THE WORLD (Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 44:24)?
Galatians 4:4 says "But when the fullness of the time was come, GOD sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law."
Do you believe the roman catholic church started teaching "Jesus is the Word" because when they "ADDED" I John 5:7-8 the IDIOTS left Jesus out of heaven to cover up their mistake?

When Socrates was sentenced to death for his philosophical investigations, and for blasphemy for challenging the gods of the city — and he accepted his death — he did say, "well, if we are lucky, perhaps I'll be able to hold conversation with other great thinkers and philosophers and doubters too."
In other words the discussion about what is good, what is beautiful, what is noble, what is pure, and what is true could always go on.
Why is that important? Why would I like to do that? Because that's the only conversation worth having.
And whether it goes on or not after I die, I don't know. But I do know that that's the conversation I want to have while I'm still alive.
Which means that to me, the offer of certainty, the offer of complete security, the offer of an impermeable faith that can't give way, is an offer of something not worth having.
I want to live my life taking the risk all the time that I don't know anything like enough yet; that I haven't understood enough; that I can't know enough; that I'm always hungrily operating on the margins of a potentially great harvest of future knowledge and wisdom.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
And I'd urge you to look at... those people who tell you, at your age, that you're dead till you believe as they do — what a terrible thing to be telling to children!
And that you can only live by accepting an absolute authority — don't think of that as a gift. Think of it as a poisoned chalice. Push it aside however tempting it is. Take the risk of thinking for yourself. Much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way.

When the time was fully come for the Word to become incarnate, he did. John 1:1.
"Why do most "Christians" believe Jesus is the Word but the time hadn't come?" The time for what hadn't come?
What is the issue? There are many points when "the time is ripe" for something.

Simple statement of fact, prima facie.

You say Word. The verse says "son". Why can't you see that?
