Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Joshua answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do
ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself
God. Joshua answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the
scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son
of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe,
that the Father [is] in me, and I in him.
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am
not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the
world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them
also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one
in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are
one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as
thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast
given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these
have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare [it]: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be
in them, and I in them.
If you accept the scriptures seriously, whether you think it to be spiritually discerned or literally discerned, these scriptures above are to be
handled well by those who understand.
We are no longer animals because of the gifts of the Creators. Christ is another one of those gifts which lifted humanity up to heaven. If we are
half flesh and half god, Christ was literally 1/4 flesh and 3/4 god. Spiritually, he is Chief of the Brethren. Nonetheless, a Good Shepherd gives
himself over for his Sheep. God sits with us in Christ and he dined with us as a friend. He gave his Sheep, his friends, the right to follow in his
path which we could not forge on our own.
Christ is not an idol to be worshiped. He is our Good Shepherd and if we are his brethren, we will also be good shepherds. Remove idols like this
video. Christ was not white. He was not a spiritual rock star. He was the firstborn of a family. All due respect to him, but he came down, away
from the high place that kept us apart from God and he walked with us. Embrace your brother and stop worshiping this westernized idol in the video.
Understand that what you think Christ is apart from the flesh is supposed to be inside of you. If that does not put idolatry in check for you, you
are yet blind.
