#The  Word Was GOD: John 1:1 Is Probably The Strongest Passage In The New Testament For Declaring The Deity Of JESUS CHRIST.  Because Of This Many Who Deny This Biblical Doctrine, Especially Cultists, Have Attempted To Undercut It By Arguing That This Passage Only Teaches That JESUS Is "A God" And So Not Fully Deity.  This Confused Position Falls On At Least Two Ground.  Such A View Is Polytheistic, The Belief In More Then One God.  Second, It Betrays A Misunderstanding Of Greek Grammar.  Verse 1 Of The First Chapter Of John Reads, "In The Beginning Was The Word, And The Word Was With GOD, And The Word Was GOD."  The Last Portion Of 1:1 Is The Major Point Of Contention.  It Reads In Greek theos en ho Logs, Or Literally, "The Word Was GOD."  GOD, Or theos, Occurs In This Verse Without The Greek Article ho, So That Some Have Contended That The Lack Of The Article In The Greek Text Should Cause The Statement To Be Translated "The Word Was A God."  The Best Understanding For The Translated, However, As Recognized By Greek Scholars, Is That Since theos Is A Predicate And Precedes The Noun Logos And A Verb, It Is Natural For It To Occur Here Without The Article.  Greek Scholars Are Agreed That The Verse Should Be Translated As It Regularly Is In Modern And Ancient Translation, Clearly Affirming That JESUS Is Indeed GOD.  #JESUS IS INDEED GOD.

#The  Word: {Gk. ho Logos} {1:1; John 1:1; Revelation.19:13} Strong's #3056: This Greek Word Was Used To Speak Of The Principle Of The Universe, Even The Creative Energy That Generated The Universe.  The Term Logos May Also Have Some Connection With The Old Testament Presentation Of Wisdom As A Personification Or Attribute Of GOD {See Proverbs. 8}.  In Both The Jewish Conception And The Greek, The Logos Was Associated With The Ideal Of Beginnings-The World Began Through The Origination And Instrumentality Of The Word {Genesis. 1:3}.  John May Have Had These Ideas In Mind, But More Likely He Used This Word In A New Way To Identify The SON OF GOD As Divine.  HE Is The Image Of The Invisible GOD {Colossians. 1:15}, The Express Image Of GOD'S Substance {Hebrews. 1:3}.  In The GODHEAD, The SON Functions As The Revealer Of GOD And Is GOD In Reality.

#Righteousness: What Is Righteousness? Most Of Us Immediately Think Of A Person Trying To Keep A List Of Rules, Like A Little Boy Or Girl Who Never Steps Over The Line.  When Paul Speaks Of Righteousness In Romans, He Means Far More Than This Commonsense Understanding Of The Word.  He Draws On The Old Testament Concept Of Righteousness, Which Speaks Of A Proper Relationship Between GOD And A Person, Or Between GOD And His People.  In The Old Testament, Righteousness Is Fundamentally An Attribute Of GOD {Psalms. 71:15; 119:42}.  He Alone Is Truly Righteous.  He Is The One Who Remains Faithful, To His Promises, His Covenant With Israel, And The Law.  In Turn, The Israelites As GOD'S People Had The Responsibility To Exemplify GOD'S Righteousness On This Earth.  Ultimately, This Meant They Had To Love And Worship The Living GOD Alone.  The Law Of Moses Could Be Summed Up In That Command And Its Corollary, "You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself" {Leviticus. 19:18; Mark 12:31}.  Tragically, The Israelites Did Not Comply.  They Proved Unfaithful To The Covenant, Although GOD Proved Himself As Faithful.  By Sending Prophets To His People, The LORD Warned Them Again And Again Of Their Sinfulness.  Finally He Had To Discipline Them, With Famine, Military Defeat, And Even Exile In Babylon.  But GOD Remained Faithful, And He Restored His People To The Land And To Himself When They Repented And Turned To Him.  After Their Return From Babylon, The Israelites Confused Righteousness With A Strict Adherence To The Law As Recorded In The Pentateuch.   Indeed, The Jewish Religious Leaders Added Numerous Amendments To The Law To Ensure That No One Would Inadvertently Break It.  Zealous Obedience To The Law Was Equated With Righteousness.  Yet Mere External Compliance To A Set Of Rules Did Not Please The LORD.  What GOD Wanted Was Repentant, Humbled Hearts That Truly Worshiped Him.  He Wanted To Be The GOD Of Their Hearts And Minds, And The Center Of Their Devotion.  In His Letter To The Romans, Paul Clearly States That No One Has Achieved This Standard; No One Has Completely Loved And Worshiped The LORD As They Should {3:23}.  All Have Sinned.  No Good Work Or Outward Appearance Of Piety Can Restore A Proper Relationship With The HOLY ONE {see Isaiah. 64:6}.  On The One Hand, The Gentiles Did Not Pursue A Right Relationship With Their Creator, So They Had Been Given Over To All Kinds Of Evil {1:18-31}.  On The Other Hand, The Jews Through External Obedience To The Law And Their Traditions Were Attempting To Justify Themselves Before GOD {9:31, 32}.  Both Failed.  JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE Who Can Stand Before The GLORIOUS GOD; HE IS THE ONLY ONE Who Is TRULY RIGHTEOUS.  REMARKABLE, He Has Offered Us A Way Out Of Our Slavery To Sin.  By Placing Our Faith And Trust In Him, We Can Be Declared Righteous.  We Can Have A Righteousness That Has Nothing To Do With Our Own Works But Instead Relies On JESUS'  Sinless Life And His Sacrificial Death For Our Sins.  The LORD FORGIVES US And Declares Us Righteous Because Of Our Identification By Faith With The RIGHTEOUSNESS OF HIS SON {4:5}.  THROUGH JESUS, We Can Finally Be RELEASED FROM THE GUILT OF OUR SINS.  Not Only Can We APPROACH THE HOLY ONE IN PRAISE AND THANKFULNESS, BUT WE CAN DO GOD'S WILL.

#Election: The Doctrine of Election Is One Of The Most Hotly Debated Mysteries Of The Christian Life.  Theologians Through The Ages Have Pondered The Meaning Of Romans 8:29, "For Whom He Foreknew, He Also Predestined To Be Conformed To The Image Of His Son.  "What Did The Apostle Paul Mean When He Wrote That GOD "Foreknew" Certain People?  How Are We To Understand The Notion Of GOD Having "Predestined" Certain Individuals To Be Saved And Sanctified?  In Attempting To Resolve These Profound Question, Bible Students Have Typically Aligned Themselves In Two Camps.  Arminians, Those Who Embrace The Position Of The Seventeenth Century Dutch Pastor Jacobus Arminius, Understand Foreknowledge To Mean GOD'S Knowledge In Advance Of Those Who Would Repent Of Their Sin And Believe The Gospel.  In Other Words, In Eternity Past, GOD Looked Down The Corridors Of Time To See All Who Would One Day Accept The Offer Of Salvation Through Christ.  In The Arminian View, Those Who Accept Salvation Are The Elect.  The Fact That They Would Eventually Believe In Christ Was The Condition That Prompted GOD To Choose Them "Before The Foundation Of The World" {See Ephesians. 1:3} Or Predestine Them To Eternity Life.  To Bolster Their Position, Arminians Point To Verses That Clearly State GOD'S Desire For All People To Be Saved {See 1 Timothy, 2:3, 4; 2 Peter. 3:9}.  Furthermore, They Argue The Universal Call For Sinners To Repent And Believe The Gospel Is Meaningless If Salvation Is Determined Solely By GOD Apart From The Free Will Of A Person.  Calvinism Is The Second Dominant Viewpoint.  Calvinist, Named For The French Reformer John Calvin, Understand Foreknowledge As A "relational" Term.  In Other Words, Foreknowledge Refers To GOD'S Intimate Knowledge Of And Love For His Elect Before They Came Into Existence.  From The Calvinistic Perspective, It Is GOD'S Sovereign Choice, And Not A Person's Exercised Faith, That Determines Who The Elect Are.  Put Simply, Calvinists Define Election As The Unconditional Choice Of GOD That Is The Cause Of Our Faith.  Arminians, On The Other Hand, Would Define It As The Conditional Choice Of GOD That Is The Result Of Our Faith.  Calvinists Define Their Position With Passages Like Romans 9:6-24 Which Describe Why GOD Hardened Pharaoh's Heart.  Moreover, They Argue That Depraved, Spiritually Dead People Could Not Choose To Believe And Would Not Choose To Believe.  Regardless Of One's Stance On The Matter Of Election, This Much Is Clear: GOD Is Infinitely Wise, Powerful, And Good.  We Cannot Accuse Him Of Being Unfair In His Dealings With Humans.  It Was Our Own Sinfulness That Has Entrapped Us And Condemned Us.  Yet GOD, Out OF His Infinite Mercy, Choose To Save.
