  1. I and My Father Are One “I and My Father are One.” {John 10:30}

  2. Ecumenical Thinking • Three major religions • Jewish • Christian • Muslim • We all worship the same God—we just follow different paths. • Different faiths; different doctrines; yet, we will come out in the same place.

  3. Jesus Only • There is only ONE God. • Manifestedin three ways— Father, Son, and Holy Spirit • The Bible speaks of ONE God—inthreedistinctPersons. • Physical sense—Father/Son • Yet, two different people!

  4. Cannot Separate Father/Son • If one doesn’t believe in the Son, God’s wrath is upon him. • “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” {John 3:36}

  5. Cannot Separate Father/Son • Those who do not believe in the Son will die in their sins. • “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”{John 8:24}

  6. Cannot Separate Father/Son • We must believe in the Son; He is our only access to the Father. • “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” {John 14:6}

  7. Cannot Separate Father/Son • Only one name ever given for salvation—that given by the Father to the Son. • “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”{Acts 4:12}

  8. What About John 14:28? • Some think that they have found a hole in the equal argument: • “You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.' If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I.” {John 14:28}

  9. Can We Understand… • The President and I are one. • Is this a correct statement? • “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.” {Acts 17:26}

  10. Can We Understand… • The president and I are equal. • Is this statement correct? • “And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear.” {1 Peter 1:17}
