If you are a Roman Catholic, you will say YES because the Creed of Athanasius says Jesus was begotten in eternity, the same substance as the Father.
If you are a Protestant, you will say YES because the Council of Nicaea voted that Christ is of the same substance as the Father.
If you are Orthodox (any kind), you will say YES because of the decision of the Council of Nicaea.
If you are an Anglican, you will say YES because it is contained in the Thirty Nine Articles of Faith.
If you are a Jehovah's Witness, you will say YES because the Watchtower decrees that Christ was the first of God's creation.
If you are a Mormon, you will say YES; Jesus is the literal spirit brother of Lucifer, a creation.
If you are a Seventh-day Adventist, you will say YES because the Bible says Jesus is the Son of God.
Press a little harder and you will see that not one of the above really believes God has a Son -- a strong statement in the light of each answer, but think it through.
* If Christ is eternal with the Father, He cannot be a begotten Son. A Son must come forth from the being of the Father at some point in time.
* If Christ was created by the Father, He is a created son and not a begotten Son.
* To believe Christ is the Son of God because the Bible says so is commendable, but it must be believed. Almost all Christians can say they believe Christ is the Son of God from the Bible, but their beliefs are vastly different.
According to John's epistle,
"He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son." John 5:10.
Are you willing to call God a liar?
Think about it.
The first question to ask is:
Did God have a Son to send?
Your answer could condemn you.
Or it will prove you believe the record that God did indeed have a Son to send.
The subject of God's Son has many aspects that need to be pondered. It is in fact, the most important subject in the Bible. You may not have thought about it before, but it is wise to consider the question. After all, we are saved by God through His Son. If we don't believe in God's real Son, we may not be saved in the end.
"He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:12.
