Does 1 John 5.20 Call Jesus God? [1 page]

Through this substitution we can see that the correct antecedent of the phrase “This is the true God and eternal life” is the Father. At John 17:1, 3 Jesus prayed, “Father,... this is eternal LIFE, that they know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

Worship the True God (Jeremiah 10.1-16)

Yahweh is the living, powerful, wise, genius creator at whose wrath the nations tremble. He is the one who controls the waters, clouds, lightning, rain, wind. He is great, powerful, and to be feared. He is the inheritance of God’s people. Worship God, he is worthy. Truth matters! Our current cultural climate devalues truth saying that being nice is all that matters...I’m sure there were many nice idol worshipers, but God was still offended at such behavior as we can see over and over in the Scriptures. Truth matters. Love matters. Let’s do both, and not just fall into the mold set for us by our culture.
