Yet, even though God demands this submission to his authority, he decides to cede it to his son???
Excuse me? This god which has demanded complete obedience suddenly decides to let his son be in charge? Based on what?
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Jesus made that arbitrary statement himself.
But how do we know that this claim is true?
Anyone can make such bizarre and uncorroborated claims. In fact, many other god-men from other religions have made this claim.
For this to have been credible, it should have come from Yahweh direct.
Why didn't Yahweh EVER say to anyone that he had a son called Jesus and that anyone who wanted to go to heaven would have to accept Jesus as the ONLY possible saviour.
Why did Yahweh demand blind obedience to himself instead of saying to the whole of mankind : if you want to be saved you have to worship my son Jesus?? But Yahweh NEVER mentions that he even has a son. Why?
