The Council of Nicea in 325 A.D and how it changed the true face of Christianity
Jesus also said in Bread of life John chapter 6 v 38-40
38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.

just a quick one. many christians claim that jesus is god. but in exodus 33: 20 it says, no man can look at him without dieing. so if jesus is god, when anyone who looked at him, would die. so if no one died when they looked at jesus, so jesus must not be god then.
New International Version - He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
Bible in Basic English - Who is the image of the unseen God coming into existence before all living things
King James Bible - Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Contemporary English Version - Christ is exactly like God, who cannot be seen. He is the first-born Son, superior to all creation.
You're not understanding Hebrew. "Firstborn" in the Hebrew means "chief born" or most important born. It's one of any number of "Hebraisms".
Every Scripture passage is inspired by God. All of them are useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God's approval.
I would include II Timothy in the list of suspect letters.
