Jesus Christ Is Not God – Simple!


“Bible teaching about the sonship of Jesus Christ is critical to our salvation. The wonder of God in providing a saviour, His own dear Son, is undermined if church teaching is accepted. History shows us how the manufactured doctrine of the trinity came into effect.

The Purpose of Creation


Genesis 1:26

This verse clearly sets out God’s purpose for man and woman.   It involves how we are created, and the scope of our responsibility.


”GOD said, Let us…”

The word for God here (Hebrew “elohim”) is referring to the Creator Himself because “God said” occurs 10 times in the creation record, consistently identified by singular pronouns (he, his, I or him occur 16 times). In verse 26, God, the One who intervenes by His agents, is speaking to the angels, who assisted in creation.  It was God’s initiative to create man in His image (verse 27). “Elohim” is translated God more than 2300 times  In addition, it is used about 250 times, mostly of false gods (in the plural – see footnote *)

Examples of translation:

“Thou shalt have no other gods Deuteronomy 5:7
“The LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” 1 Kings 18:36
“God made him lower than the angels” Psalm 8:5
“His master shall bring him to the judges Exodus 21:6
“I have said ‘Ye are gods’ and all of you are children of the Most High” Psalm 82:6 

Man was created like God – the animals were not created in such a way.  As a result, we have the ability to understand and reason on the things of God, and so we have the capacity to become “like” the angels.    Cp Luke 20:36

2 Key points:

1 The pattern by which we are made – “in the image and likeness”

This gives us the manufacturer’s specifications, the pattern for man to follow.  God is displeased when men make other images, hence the command “Ýe shall make no idols or graven images” (Leviticus 26:1).  “Some changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the image like to corruptible man…” (Romans 1:23)

2 What man’s destiny is – “let them have dominion over all THE EARTH”

No other place was promised to mankind.  (cp Psalm 115:16)  In the last book of the Bible, it is rulership over the earth which is promised “.. and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:10)

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).


“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).


The Lord Jesus Christ and apostles all accepted the Creation record as written. (Matthew 19:4;  John 5:47;  Acts 17:24;  Romans 5:12 etc)

Evolution does not explain the origin of life or its complexity at the cellular level.  It affects our understanding of the purpose of life, and accountability to the Creator.  The moral implications of evolution, and the social consequence – chaos, irresponsibility – are clearly seen in society at present. Contrast the following points:


  • Chance – chaos
  • No accountability
  • No responsibility


  • Order – purpose
  • Accountability
  • Responsibility

In the Creation record, God is not telling us HOW He performed creation, rather WHY He did it.

We are not told WHEN God created, it is simply “In the beginning”.  The earth was “without form and void”, or as translated by Rotherham “had become a catastrophe”.  Hence there was no life upon the earth, until the Spirit of God moved to create.

There are six days of creation, with God resting on the seventh day.   We know that each creative day comprised a 24 hour period, because of the statement “the evening and morning…”.

This is the reversal of man’s day:
Man’s day begins in light (morning), moves to darkness (night)
God’s day begins in darkness (Genesis 1:2), moves to light (Genesis 1:3)

This principle of light and darkness is symbolic of understanding and ignorance.  We are only “in light” when we know the ways of God;  apart from that we are in darkness, even though we may be wise in this world’s estimation.  (John 3:19-21;  2 Corinthians 4:3-6)

Day 1 Light Day 4 Light bearers; sun, moon stars
Day 2 Atmosphere
Day 5 Creatures of the air (birds)
Creatures of the water (fish)
Day 3 Earth
Day 6 Animals

Note:  The first 3 days are paralleled with the last three days.

Verse 16:  The word “made” in Genesis 1 which indicates “to make or create”, in this verse is a different Hebrew word, indicating “appoint”.  It relates to the earth being located in relation to the planets, so that the seasons, and day and nighttime are set in place.

Verse 24:  Let the earth bring forth” – Evolution claims life on earth came from the sea!  All the creatures are made “after his kind”.  There is no crossing between the species. The only variation is within the species.  This is well established as genetic law.  The few species that have been successfully crossbred, are sterile, eg the mule.
