  • In the Christian Religion, there is only One God, who is a Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus was Jew...hence He believed and worshiped the only true God Jehovah ...and always tried to please Him....he prayed to Him...and loved Him...John 17:3 states " this means everlasting life the taking in knowledge of YOU ( prayer to Jehovah by Jesus) and the One you sent forth( Jesus) He never referred to Himself as God (except here “Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58), the Jews knew it too "You, being a man, make yourself out to be God," (John 10:33))...He never said the Holy Spirit was God (except here "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." (John 14:16-18) and Paul confirms this here "Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?" (2 Corinthians 3:17))... You see taking in knowledge of Jesus does not make Him God (you're right, taking in knowledge doesn't make Him God, Him being God makes Him God)....but faith in Him is requirement for life. God cannot die...but Jesus died for our sins and if we do not respect Jesus new role as Messiah we cannot gain life everlasting. Jehovah is God, Jesus is the son of God as stated in scripture.
