Buzz off!

  1. "..the enthroned king was participating in the unique divine sovereignty of the one God over all things. Buzzard seems to think that such is possible without the participant actually being God or to use Bauckham’s phraseology, ‘participating in the divine identity.’ This is how he can say with a straight face that Jesus’ “‘equality’ with his Father does not make him God.”

    I showed a JW this verse in John's gospel the other day: "The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him."-Jesus (john 5:22-23)
    I asked, "Do you believe we can honor any man with the same honor we honor Jehovah with?"
    They were puzzeled, and tried to think of some way to answer, but they finally said, "We will have to ask our elders about this verse.
    "It is what it is", I said, "Jesus is equal with His Father."

    Have a glorious weekend in our Savior's sovereign love and peace.
