One of the most insidious lies perpetuated by modern-day churchianity is that Jesus is God.
Jesus is not God. Jesus was never God and never will be God.
Only those who don’t know Jesus would call him God. (more…)
Scripture is very clear that one day, there will be two camps of people: those who love God and follow Jesus, and those who don’t.
