"A" Son of God??
CNS News ^ | 04/08/12 | ealgeone(vanity)

Posted on 04/08/2012 6:16:40 PM PDT by ealgeone

“And for me, and I’m sure for some of you, it’s also a chance to remember the tremendous sacrifice that led up to that day, and all that Christ endured--not just as a Son of God, but as a human being.”

In Obama's Easter Prayer Breakfast this year he spoke about Christ having doubts and fears about His crucifixion. However, in his comments, Obama's teleprompter told him to say that Christ was a Son of God. Was this a misspeak on his part? Or was this really in the teleprompter?

If it was in the teleprompter, then Obama has again signaled his apparent lack of understanding of the Bible. Christ is the Son of God....the only Son of God.

How could a Christian make such a huge blunder?

“How could a Christian make such a huge blunder?”

A Christian can’t—because that’s the major tenet of a believer’s faith, to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the only One without sin who could pay the penalty for our sins.

When I saw the lead I guessed it was a quote from Romney. Both are capable of the same error.

Luke 3:38
...the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

Indeed He is the ONLY begotten son of God.

Don’t look to our President for any doctrinal instruction. He is bereft.

Only begotten Son——that’s a phrase most Christians know and understand.

If God had a son he’d have looked a lot like Jesus.

I doubt if Obama understands the theological difference between “a son of God” and “the Son of God.”

Obama wasn’t so talkative above Easter last year. Must be an his reelection year.

A Christian wouldn't.

From his own lips.

Folks, dont fall for this.
Obama said this from a teleprompter. He is BAITING you to attack his religion again so that he can claim victim status. Not only that but he’s pointing over to Romney too. Dont let them pull another Birther thing on you.

.
Christ is the only BEGOTTEN son of God, but not the only son of God. All of the angels are Sons of God, and he gave us the power to BECOME Sons of God.

Obama is an Obamist first, and a Moslem after that.

No one as cruel and evil as Obama could possibly be indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

Here in Australia there were all sorts of Easter shows on the telly, major networks. Not like the US where it’s “What’s Easter?”

OK, so a Christian would say THE Son of God.

Maybe instead of Obama being a secret Muslim, he is actually a secret Hindu since the Hindus believe in many incarnation of God?

Obama must be a secret Hare Krishna since they believe in many manifestations of God.

Barry knows more about the amber stains on Frank Marshall Davis's shorts than he does anything about Christianity.

Obviously you are not familiar with the Bible. (I bet they even sell them in your town in utah)

Jhn 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:

Jhn 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Isn’t that Bible thingy neat?

Actually, I am a bit familar with the Bible.
Your choice of words about Him giving us the power to become sons of God reminded me of some of the beliefs of the prominent Utah religion.
Many translations use “children of God” rather than sons of God in John 1:12. As I don’t read Greek or Hebrew, I don’t know which is more accurate.
All I know for sure is that Jesus is the actual Son of God, and that we can be adopted into His family.
Although I no longer live in Utah, they do sell Bibles in Utah (although the LDS trust it only if it is translated correctly). Happy Easter!

No, children of God is not correct.

The total implication of Sons of God means a literal new creation, not of biological nature. Each “son of God” is a unique immortal creation, and that is what our “new bodies” are going to be.

Not sure how you know more than the scholars/translators...and as I am having a hard time trying to figure out where you are coming from, I’ll just say, “Have a glorious Easter!”.

We have Cable and Fiber optic systems with a few hundred channels, many were showing 24 hour Easter programing. I nave not watched a major alphabet network in months.

No, he's not. He's not that bright. In fact, he's an idiot who can't string together anything resembling a coherent sentence without a teleprompter. If anything, it's just another example of his hubris: This walking turd can say or do anything and the MSM, along with the gimme-gimme public (we know who they are) will give him a pass, if not outright agree with him.

...and he knows it.

Wow, dog...

Rookie mistake. Didn’t your bible at least put brackets around “the son”? There’s no “the son of” in Luke, just “of.” Modern bibles interpolate “the son,” bu usually at least leave editorial marks so no-one thinks that Adam was “the son of God.”

The real verse is “Which was of Enos, of Seth, of Adam, of God.”

My daughter, last night, putting a few lessons together, asked if 0bama was the anti-Christ.

I had to laugh a bit, then I said, “Nope, he’s not smart enough.”

Not a blunder - it is an intentional statement that Jesus was just a man like everyone one else.

What ‘scholar’ holds any position other than the one I posted directly out of the scripture? I am unable to find any.

Well, the scholar/translator teams who translated the American Standard Version, the New International Version, the Contemporary English Version, the New King James Version, and many others hold a position other than yours. They all say it translates best as “children of God”.
And as I said, since I don’t read the original languages, I can’t really argue for either “children” or “sons” with any certainty.

But those are all Westcott/Hort based Satanic Bibles that by FJA Hort’s own admission was intended to “refute the entire New Testament.”

BTW, none of them was ever qualified to be called a “Bible scholar.” Most of the translation staffs for all of those “versions” were unbelievers.

You need to read Gail Riplinger’s extensive work on this subject.

Thanks for identifying who you’re with; its good to know for future reference.
