    Only because I thought you purported to be a believer.

    Now, now. Were all big people here. Because I don't believe the same as you, doesn't mean that I don't believe in Jesus or his Father.

    So you are purporting to be a believer?

    Let's say you come home to your Father in the same manner as in the parable, and your Elder brother, who never broke or transgressed any commandment of the Father whatsoever, is just a little heated because your Father slayed the fatted calf for you, and yet, as your Elder brother protests: there was never even a kid-goat sacrificed for him, (for the goats are primarily for sin offerings, but he has no sin or error, lol). Would you not therefore appease your Elder brother and offer up a kid-goat for him? Do you not have a kid-goat twin of your own to surrender up for your Elder brother so that he may celebrate with his (seven)fellows? Kiss the Son, lest he be a little heated and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. For as the Father says to the Son, My Son, you are ever with Me, and everything of Mine is thine.

    I believe totally in Jesus, his Father and the Bible. I also spend many hours every year giving people sufficient information to make an informed decision about what the Bible says.

    Kiss the Son means showing Jesus the honor due him.

    Amen, and if not: why would he enter into your house?
    Moreover the one having the Son has the Father.

    Ah...

    By "sufficient information", I assume you mean the Gospel.

    Do you deny the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ?

    Sufficient information requires the complete Bible, not just the Christian Greek scriptures.

    19 Therefore, in response Jesus said to them: “Most truly I say to you, the Son cannot do a single thing of his own initiative, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever things that One does, these things the Son does also in like manner.
    The Father and Son are two separate individuals. So Jesus could never make himself a god. He never had that desire to do so.

    You are aware that the illustration of the Prodigal Son has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus, correct?

    So, you do deny Jesus was God?

    That's what I thought.

    The first thing you need, then, is to hear the Gospel so you can be saved.
